Will Trades Me Bodice Ripper, Blow Up Scream and Figure Drawing Book for Undead Mosaic Clown Painting and Super Bright Kisses
Will is one of my favorite trader-persons.
He writes the best stories and sends in really good stuff. He's fer sure in the top three.
And here are Will's very patient answers to my "interview" questions.
How do you feel about sushi?
I love it more than I love most people. I would eat it any time any day as long as it was from a decent place. I'm pretty picky about the quality of my sushi.
If you were dared, would you eat a live bug?
Not on a dare and probably not even on a bet. I try to be a good Buddhist and not kill anything if I can help it.
If someone paid you, would you eat a live bug over 3 inches around?
No. I would only eat a live bug if it was absolutely necessary to my survival. I've actually been thinking about becoming a vegetarian as part of my Buddhist personal philosophy, but I don't like chickens that much when they're alive and the thought of eating them seems to be "okay" within the context of this philosophy. If they weren't so dumb and stinky maybe I would feel worse about it, but most days I would gladly wake up and punch every chicken I could find right in its stupid chicken face.
Would you do it just for fun?
No, but I have eaten crickets and mealworms as part of a "bug festival" or some such nonsense that the etymology department of my college was having and they were pretty good. They were cooked though.
Dragonflies: evil or awesome?
That's a good question actually because I've often wondered the same thing. On a level of annoying/painful insects they seem to be pretty awesome because they don't bite or hang out in my face, but something about the way I can never get one to land on my hand (or anywhere for very long) so I can get a good look at them seems kind of evil.
How annoying is it to have to fill out customs forms on International packages?
I don't have to do this very often, but the few times I've done it, it ranked somewhere around 8 or 9 on a scale of 10 for annoying. I just feel like in this day and age, filling out paperwork in general is annoying, but customs forms are on the brink of insanity.
Is there ever a time when you feel like you'll get everything you need to get done -- done?
Oh no. Won't happen. There are too many things to do and not enough time. I have to stay busy though or I'll go insane.
Even if I was productive enough to get all of my many many projects done and, through some miracle, didn't come up with more projects, I'd still have a stack of books taller than me that I need to read before I die that I know will never get completely read. I've long ago come to terms with the fact that there's not going to be enough time in this life to do everything that needs to get done, it's focusing on the priorities that are important. Time is a precious commodity that we must use wisely, although I often fail to do so.
