This is a question World of Random

There's a pile of scrap timber, rubble and general turds in the road opposite my work with a hand-written sign reading "Free Shed". Tell us about random, completely hatstand stuff and people you've seen

I swear this is true
Several years ago, I was in a crappy used bookstore with my husband. He was dawdling around somewhere in the back, taking forever as usual. I was bored and hanging around in the front of the store, waiting to leave. I'm an artist, so I walked over to a display of art books. I randomly pick up one called "An Artist's Guide to Making it in New York City" and open it to the first page. First page, first sentence is a direct quote from ME. I nearly fainted dead on the spot. I leaf through the book, and find that I'm quoted in there several times.

The funny thing is, I have absolutely no recollection of ever being interviewed for this book. I don't remember talking to the author, and even if I did, you'd think he (or someone) would have told me this book existed.

If you want to see it for yourself, here's a link to Amazon--you can read the first page, first sentence (and then stalk me): www.amazon.com/Artists-Guide-Making-York-City/dp/1581151950/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1303401389&sr=8-11

You're a damn fine artist
have you heard of Sarah Graham?, I notice you and her share a passion:

I can't remember my own mobile number but I never forget a good painting

Not exactly to my normal taste... but I do like the monkeys and the locks rather a lot. And the marbles. I like them as well.

What sort of prices do they fetch? Not that I can afford anything at the moment - but I'm curious.

oh they are anywhere between $400 and $5000
Those little monkeys are $500 each. The locks are around $4000 each, just to give you an idea. (alas, I do not sell a ton--therefore the need to screw around on B3TA all day long at my mindless "day job")
