Swap questions for 13 Nights of Halloween
A note to my Goblin(?) - I forgot to mention a format of books that is good is physical! I'm super happy to get books, and used books are good, too. And related to that, an inexpensive item I appreciate is a good bookmark. A handmade bookmark, even, if you are crafty that way.
What is your favorite thing about Halloween?
I love almost all of it. The cooler weather, longer nights, rain (I hope), and all the witches and ghosts and gothic funstuff my little heart could desire.
Would you like a Halloween-themed cross-stitch piece of art done by your partner? If so, do you prefer something practical, like a cross-stitch dishtowel or table runner, or something to be hung on the wall? I've been getting into cross-stitch again and having fun with Halloween patterns.
Sure, I'd love something like Halloween dishtowels, or along thos lines. We don't really do wall art at my house.
Are you coveting something from the Lilith release?
I'm safe from this update
Have you seen the Haus of Gloi Fall update? Does anything from that tickle your fancy?
I'm tempted by the Queen Mother Fall 2018 or Shadow Fairy perfume oil and Persephone Descending in Bubbling Scrub or Hair oil
Aesthetically they're fine, but I always lose them.
Would you appreciate handknits? Any preference (socks, hats, cowls, mitts, etc)
Certainly! I don't really do knit hats, except maybe a nice stocking cap, but hooray on the rest of it.
What kind of local goods do you like to pick up/try when you visit somewhere new?
Ummm, I don't generally speaking...But I'll pretend for this question. Foodstuff, probably. Local honey, maybe. Or something from a local crafter. Something yarn related, maybe?
Do you like to cook or bake, and if so, would you like any cooking accessories, mixes, or ingredients?
I do all the cooking and baking in my house. Something fun for the kitchen would be nice. A fun/fancy spoon rest or bread making accessories.
I prefer my pumpkin spice to be paired with pumpkin. As a scent...eh. It's all right, but the hype drives me nuts.
Do you like Day of the Dead goodies?
As cultural art celebrating a religious holiday I find it fascinating. But like Kokopelli, I find the commercialization of it disturbing.
How do you feel about homemade edibles? Not just baked goods, but fruit butters, jams and such-like? Do you prefer savory or sweet or yes?
I love homemade edibles, with the caveat that they are vegetarian.
Certainly! I prefer calf and knee length
Interesting flavors of kitkats, aside from that I don't know
Yankee Candle or Bath & Body Works?
No thank you
Recent LEs, updates?
No thank you
Sort of? There are things I follow, or love and wouldn't mind artifacts relating too them...official or otherwise. In no particular order: Anything from Jhonen Vasquez, especially Zim or Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, anything (except the small children's books) by Neil Gaiman, Girl Genius online comic, the various works of Ursula Vernon (mostly in her grown-up T. Kingfisher hat) including the Hidden Almanac podcast, Archive 81, the Tanis podcast, and Welcome to Nightvale
Nightmare Before Xmas! Also, I love the Haunted Mansion and New Orleans Square
Only the original 3
Would you like flavored oils or vinegars?
Do you have any interest in fun tees or other goodies either related to your fandoms or otherwise from TeeTurtle or similar sites (https://www.teeturtle.com/)? If the answer is yes, what's your t-shirt size?
I love my crow "Murder!" shirt from tee turtle and I remember they had some other super cute Halloween shirts (including some Nightmare Before Christmas) last year. Also, Topataco had a great "Mord" shirt from the Hidden Almanac podcast
Do you have a favorite musical, opera, playwright or other theatrical or performing arts interest for which you might like interesting goodies?
Um...not that I know of?
Do you have any desire/need for a new umbrella?
I think we're good on those rightnow
Any desire for mugs - travel or otherwise? How about water bottles?
I would dearly love some good Halloween or Fall latte mugs
Pumpkin *spice* with or without chocolate?
Pumpkin spice, as spice, is good! With chocolate is even better.
If you like/want books, do you have a goodreads or other place where you discuss your favorite books? Would you be interested in a spooky Halloween compilation or a classic halloweenie/autumnal book like Ray Bradbury's The Halloween Tree or Something Wicked This Way Comes?
I don't...I recently deleted my Goodreads, for reasons, and have yet to set up something else. But I would certainly enjoy a spooky/Halloween story collection or book.When I was younger I read the compilation "Ghosts, Ghosts, Ghosts" and "Witches, Witches, Witches" several times (they were in the school library. My introduction to Baba Gaga, who featured prominently in the witches book.)
Fluffy pompom or without? I would proudly wear either, though my general preference is without.
