My darling witch,

I've answered many of these on the thread, but it is much easier to put them all here for you, so I will do so... now! I am very, very excited about YOU! :wub2:

March 25

Are you interested in trying Super Villainess (from Villainess - the birthday scent that was just released tonight!) and if so, which item do you like the most? (Soap, Whipped, Smooch, Extrait, Smack...) Not particularly, no.

If I were to order you a Smack, which four notes would you like? I've never had one before. I suspect something with vanilla bean, spice trade, incense, and vanilla bean would be amazing though.

Would you enjoy receiving a knitted gift from your witch? If so what would you be interested in (scarf, hat, wrist / handwarmers, socks, etc.) and in what colors? YES. YES. Handwarmers would be especially awesome. And hats. I love hats.

March 23

Easter Candy - do you like it? If so, what types? Not really.

What scent(s) are you petrified of getting DC'd? Eat Me. Like you wouldn't believe.

March 22

Violette Market Update is up. Do you covet anything from it? No.

What is your favorite type of wine? Would you be interested in trying something new? In that case, is there anything you really DONT like? Ooooo how about dessert wines? My favorites are all from a local cider house. I don't like Pinot Noir or Merlot. I don't need more wine, though.

March 21

What three things are you craving right now? My fiance, more time before I graduate or a job, and a clean house. I know, not exactly anything you can deliver, but three things I want.

paper goods, anyone need? including resume paper, and formal stationery as well as casual cards. No, not really.

What is a scent that you've been trying to find even a sample of for a very long time to no avail? (What bottle would you die to get your hands on - even a partial?) Not really.

Is there anything in your life that you'd like advice or a "selfhelp" book for?: (ie finances, eating healthier, meal planning) Not really.

March 19

If your Witch lived near you, would you be happy or creeped out to get a "coupon" for a service like cleaning help or babysitting or dogwalking or coffee out with your Witch or something like that? Would you be creeped out if a local minion personally delivered a package to your house from a far-away Witch? Coffee out would be awesome, a local delivery would be awesome, services like cleaning would be uncomfortable for me.

Let's say I have a pair of something you collect, would you like one of them and we have matching things? YES.

March 18

Do you like poetry? Not really. I used to.

What types of scents do you like to scent your home? Which do you totally avoid? I have housemates, so nothing too interesting. My room is Snow White/Mahogany Hall all the way. The rest of the house is usually Snake OIl Bath Oil, vanillas, or random imps that I kind of like but would never wear diluted in the oil burner. Heavily diluted. I really only want them to scent my desk area.

What are your thoughts on comics? Any you like? Any you have been wanting to try? Favorite characters? Yes. If there is one you love to enable folks with, I'd love to read it. I tend to be intimidated by the sheer content out there and as a result don't really get into them. I've read Sandman, Fables, Transmetropolitan, a few others.

How do you feel about nail polish? What colors do you like? Sparkles? Yes. Jewel tones. I used to have a really gorgeous dark blue, but I lost it. That makes me really sad. I keep trying to wait for the trading post blue claw polish to come out, but...

Household/kitchen goods/gadgets? I'm good, thanks. My mom is kind of an unending stream of kitchen gadgets.

Ok geek check - what sort of geeky things do you do? Do you read comics/graphic novels? Are you obsessed with something (a TV show maybe?) Do you work in a geeky field? Do you play rpgs like Dungeons and Dragons? Would you like gifts related to any of these?
It is safe to assume that if it is geeky, I am into it. I'm not into gaming right now because I'm getting my MBA and do you know how difficult it is to get anything done when you are feeding a gaming addiction? I'm on a strict diet until I graduate. But I'm all over Castle, Bones, the Cape, Community, House, Chuck, and more. I watch TV while I study or knit. I read graphic novels. I'm getting my MBA so I can work in social media planning. When my fiance and I live together, we plan to decorate our house in jewel tones, science, and nerdliness (you can see my Etsy wishlist for what I mean there).

Do you have a favorite fabric? If someone were to make you a fabric item, would you prefer it be out of any fabric? e.g. velvet, satin, silk, cotton, bamboo??? Would this change if it were an article of clothing vs. a bag/pillow/blanket/somethingelse Nothing furry! No velvets, no fleeces. Cheap cotton works really well. I have weid texture issues -- things that are too soft or furry make me want to vomit. Literally, they make me sick to my stomach. I said it was weird.

Anything with the Worm Moon update that you're already lusting after? No. I got decants because it's such a short round. Does that make me a bad witchee?

March 17

Would you want an invite to a site that is invite-only ex. Diaspora, Demonoid, etc. If so, what? If it is cool, sure! If you think I'd like it.

Pillows? What size/designs/colors would most interest you? I love pillows, but I have so many. If you made one, I would love it, but otherwise it's just another thing I have to move.

purses? bags? What style/colors? I have way, way too many already.

Decorative scarves for hair and/or creative accessorizing? What colors? Jewel tones -- particularly blues and greens. Purples.

Would you like anything from Starring Fragrances. They make awesome hair stuff, natural deoderant, and home fragrance (and a ton of other stuff, those are just my favs)? Um, up to you. I've never heard of them before. I'm totally set on deodorant, though.

What periods of art do you love most? Like, if someone was going to get you a tapestry or a box or some other item, what period would you want it to most resonate with? the pinks and golds of Rococo? the clean geometry of Art Deco? The romanticism of Art Nouveux? The strange lines of Cubism? Art Deco and Art Nouveaux.

Would you like caffeinated lollipops?: http://www.lollyphil...cks-caffeinated No, thank you. I get plenty of caffeine through my coffee, tea, and chocolate addictions.

I'm going to Disneyland in a couple of weeks, is there anything I can get you?
Not that I know of...

March 16

For those who like lipgloss, lipstick, tinted balms, etc, what colors do you wear (and warm? cool?) and do you prefer something sheer or more opaque? How do you feel about shimmer?

Something lightly tinted, I think. Shimmer is great. I'm not a huge fan of lipgloss/lipstick/tinted balms, but just got in to making my own, so I am perfecting my recipe. If you have a recipe here, I'd love to try it since mine are still coming out harder than I'd like.

Are there any fancy/gourmet/special herbs or spices that you'd love to receive? ie: good quality vanilla or other extracts, vanilla beans, saffron, lavender, etc.

Well. If you want to send me a vanilla bean, I certainly wouldn't say no. I actually already have most extracts, saffron, lavender, what-have-you that I want and a revolving supply of vanilla beans. We are foodies here. And make our own vanilla extract. And use it amazingly fast. I think my fiance does shots when I'm not looking.*

*Since he doesn't drink booze, this is unlikely.

What's your favorite animal? Or is there one that's particularly significant to you?

No. There isn't. I like cats. I like ravens. Oh, man, if you want to go on a mini-forum hunt, if you dig up the autumn art swap IGI thread, you can see the most gorgeous raven sketches from my art swap partner. She made me a journal and sketched in it and it was lovely.

If you were able to get a vintage or prototype bottle from the upcoming West Coast Will Call, which one would you want?
Cake Smash. Like half the world. Other than that, anything that particularly matched my favorite notes would be nice. I haven't looked up the ZYX123 style names for notes because I know I won't be there. No reason to torture myself with things I can't have.

DVDs, Blu-Ray, both, neither? DVDs. I don't have a Blu-Ray player.

Sock Dreams? What kind? (anklets, footies, etc.?) Knee highs. I've been lusting after hthese in black and green (tragically sold out) and these in anything earth tone. If I ever actually make an order there, that's what I'd get.

Since this is a price capped round, would you rather get one "big" thing or lots of "little" things or don't care?

I don't really care. I mean, if you saw something that was just perfect and ran right up to the price cap, I'd want it over 10 meh things. If you saw 10 super cute little things, I'd want them over one nice but only okay big thing. So. Yeah. I hope that makes sense. Whatever works best, I guess, is what I'm saying.

Do you like pirate-related things?
Yes. This is a pirate-y themed round, right? (No, okay, it's a treasure hunt round which I'm totally playing around with a bit with my witchee already, but still..)

March 15

Booze? Yay or Nay? what kinds? I love booze. Unless you are just down the street, however, that's not happening. PA is very anti-booze as a state. However, for the record, my favorites are bourbon, tequila, wine that isn't pinot noir or merlot, and black beer.

Steampunk inspired items? Yay or nay?
Yay! But in a tasteful way.

Do you like amurigami dolls?
Not really. There are better things to knit or crochet.

Pirates vs Ninjas vs Zombies - who wins? Which do you love most?
Pirates. The pirates ship out to sea and let the ninjas deal with the zombies. They find a beautiful island and stay there. When they finally get bored and decide to wander back, the ninjas have won out over the zombies, but there are very few left. Pirates swiftly take control.

Do you like wearing things in your hair? If so, what kind (snap clips, scrunchie, headband, etc), how big & crazy (lowkey, bigger the better), and colors.
So at the end of the last round, I actually woke up one day, called the salon, and chopped all my hair off. It's shoulder length now. I have all these great clippies for really long, thick hair, but they don't really work with short hair. So... anything that helps with short hair would be really nice.

Piercings? - ears?? - elsewhere? Ears. Nowhere else.

Chocolate. With stuff in it? Are you more a plain chocolate lover, a chocolate and normal items lover (normal items being nuts, fruit, caramel) or do you like weird stuff in your chocolate? (weird stuff being curry, chilis, balsamic vinegar, floraly things)
Yes. In American chocolate, I generally like dark chocolate. In foreign chocolate I like both most places. In Czech chocolate, I like milk chocolate studentska bar with nuts and fruit. Because dark chocolate is super sweet and oddly flavorless.

I like chocolate alone. I like it with crazy things in. I like it with normal things in.

March 14

surprise! the world has given you the day off. You hear that, no chores, responsibilities, or budget you have to follow. What would you do in those 24 hours? Visit my fiance during a BPAL trunk show (they are magically in the same place), then read a good book, watch some good tv, and eat an amazing meal.

Do you have any blogs you regularly read? Jezebel, Ars Technica, the Consumerist, Mashable, BPAL Gazette, a few web comics, Catalog Living (does that count as a web comic?)

Do you need another bpal box? If so what would your fantasy one look like? No. I fantasize about the super, super nice ones on Etsy like everyone else. I would like an ammo box for imps at some point. That would be good.

Do you enjoy gardening? If so, what kind of stuff do you grow? Vegetables, flowers? I do. I can't this year because I'll be moving at least once. Possibly more.

favourite artists or specific paintings? Mucha. Art Nouveau. Van Gogh.

how about mix CDs? Yes!

Hey, how do folks feel about little e-goodies, like links to stuff your witchee likes? (articles online, pix, fic, etc) Yes!

Tim Tams? Yes or no? Chocolate Creme, Caramel, or Dark Chocolate? Dark Chocolate?

Is there any "classic" literature (Hemingway, Dickens, Elliot, Bronte, Hugo, Wilde, etc.) that you would like to add to your collection?
No, I have a Kindle (which is seriously enough of an explanation -- between Amazon and Project Gutenberg, they are all freely available).

candles and/or aroma melts: yay or nay? Yes. Candles especially. My fiance is very fond of them.

Get your music player, what are the first 13 songs on Random?

Cat Stevens: Portobello Road, Cowboy Mouth: Joe Strummer, Splashdown: Presumed Lost, Joni Mitchell: A Case of You, Postal Service: Recycled Air, Track 13 from that CD that Lizzy made me, Splashdown: A Charming Spell, Wendy Colonna: Coffee Today, the Beatles: Across the Universe, Warner Bros Orchestra: Ilsa Returns/As Time Goes By, Portishead: Roads, Garbage: Subhuman

Astrological charts and interpretation/ reports?
No, thank you.

So how does everyone feel about receiving ebooks? YES.

Baked Goods? Yea Nay? I would prefer recipes.

If not Baked goods and you are changing eating habits..a book of recipes perhaps that will help the new eating lifestyle? I love recipes.

If you were to make an order RIGHT NOW (Not that any of you will make any bpal orders until SW is over, because you do NOT want to mess up any plans your witch might have!) What would you order (from lab, forum, DD, TradingPost, etc) Eat Me. Snake Oil. Mme Moriarty. But mostly Eat Me.

What level of nudity are you fine with on items? Ex: none, tasteful, erotica Be free! I will find it amusing regardless.

I know the ?airre asked about gently used books and if you like garage sales, but would you like other kinds of gently used items that may have come from a garage sale? Not shoes. Otherwise, be free witch!

Do you like cooking seasonings, like the kind you can get in ounce sizes? If so, things you'd love to try out? Anything regional to your area. With recipes!

Do you like any particular kinds of green or black teas or coffees that could also be gotten in bulk?
No. I mean, I do. Lots of them. But I think I'm being good and saying "no" until I use some of what I have since packing it all to move is a pain in the you know what.

Favorite snack foods (and can they be from bulk section as well?) Chex mix/trail mix.
