Switch Witch 2010 !

Does anyone do altered books? Would you be interested in old books to alter? Any type or title in particular? I am ignorant of this practice.   Did someone ask about incense yet? Would you like some? Something to store or burn it in? What scents? What form? I do like incense - any kind.   Any oddball free things you collect or would want saved for you? I try to throw away as much stuff as I can, because my grandmother was a hoarder (boxes and boxes of twine, butcher paper and old newspapers), so STUFF makes me nervous.   For those who are yarnies, would you like other-than-yarn witchery? Hooks, needles? Preference of material? Do you use/would you like handmade stitch markers, etc.? Not a yarnie.   What is your favourite habitat and climate to live in? How about to visit? (ie. forest, canyons, mountains, by the beach; temperate, tropical...) I've lived all over, but I think I most love being near a beach. I've lived near beautiful white Destin, Fl. beaches, near crowded Rio de Janiero beaches, chilly Jersey Shore beaches and now muddy Galveston, Tx beaches - and have loved them all...just so I also have a big umbrella handy!   How do people feel about edible arrangements? I love fruit, and I love chocolate, so it could work!   Anyone need address/phone type books? Got enough, thanks.   Do you read/like fantasy? What kind of books or authors do you love? Which one would you like to read? Would you like gifts related to it? Yes! Terry Pratchett, Jim Butcher, Jacqueline Carey, but I think I currently have all of their books   Soaps : do you like them? What brands? What scents? Anything you're dying to try? I do love soaps, but all of my money goes to BPAL perfume, so I haven't tried much. Any are appreciated.       Socks? I love socks, mostly knee socks, of warm, fluffy material.   How do people feel about word magnets? I don't have a metallic surface for magnet.   What are you guys going to be aiming for in the Inquisition? Slaugh or Ginger Snaps look interesting.   If you could have any costume, or if you aren't into costumes, necklace or other accessory, from any movie character, what would it be? The dresses from the latest Marie Antoinette movie (with Kirsten Dunst), all of Lucilla's costumes/jewelry from "Gladiator", Eliza's black and white Ascot dress from "My Fair Lady" (and hat).   If you have something on a wishlist that we could craft INSTEAD of buying, though it might not end up identical to the wishlist thing, would it be okay to craft it instead? Obviously we don't want to copy anyone else's design, but if we can replicate the flavour or intent that you like without stepping on toes? For example, you like some simple earrings with moon charms on them. We have moon charms and earring backs, though of course not exactly the same ones. Absolutely.     Is there a TV, movie or literary character that you are a lot alike, or would like to be alike? - Pippi Longstocking   Is there anything you need for your kitchen, ie measuring cups, spoons, grater, ect? – I try to stay out of the kitchen, as much as possible. My family prefers that, as well.   Music, DO you prefer Live or Studio? Edited or explicit? - Live or studio, either is good. I tend to prefer edited - just because I've always tried to keep my kid's world clean. Now, however, they are the ones that turn the radio down when an explicit song is on, saying, "Mom, you shouldn't hear this one".   If you are an animal lover, is there a specific type/breed that you love most? – I adore cats of any kind. And golden retrievers.   Also flowers and plants- If you like flowers/plants, do you have a favorite(s)? – I love lilacs and hydrangas, but am able to kill any living plant, so I view them from afar.   Do you have a favorite quotation? Song lyric? Book passage? - Favorite quotation, from my mom: BE FLEXIBLE     What would your last meal be if it could be anything in the world (sky is the limit, drinks too, the whole shebang) – mmmm, Seasoned steak and baked potato from Saltgrass Steakhouse, turnip greens, and a Haagen Daz Chocolate covered chocolate ice cream bar. With a bottle of Chimay blue.   Dollar store stuff - whatever tickles my Witch's fancy   Specific book - I'm still waitin to get the latest Jim Butcher Alera series book in paperback, "Prince's Fury", but I don't think its out yet.     Groupons vs gift certificates: No thanks   HP House: Love HP - I'm a Ravensclaw.   Pajamas? I sometimes wear yoga pant in size S/M.   Level of Girly: I've always loved twirly skirts and big fluffy crinolines and starchy pink tutus - but that just may be due to my love of costuming.   Tarot: no thanks   Austen: YES!!! Have read and loved all of them.   Mix CDs: Please.   Soft/plush: My past Witchee, the fabulous LunaLiquid, knitted me some fingerless gloves and a lovely scarf, as a reverse Halloween SW gift- and yes I adore them, and allthings soft and plushy.   ----------------- New questions!   What, if anything, is your guilty TV watching pleasure? I love Project Runway, and I'm strangely, horrifically attracted to the Hoarding shows, particularly the Pet Hoarders.   If you cosplay or need a costume for your bellydance/burlesque hobby (or any other hobby which needs dressup/different from your normal wear), is there anything you need/want for it? I started bellydancing a couple of years ago and have had to stop, due to time issues. But I'm always looking for "pretty goth" and renaissance faire costumes.   Celebrity crush?: mmm Alan Rickman, ever since "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves" Sean Bean circa the "Sharpe's" series     What about [mixed or otherwise] DVDs? Sure, especially any comedy. Favs are BBC comedies, Monty Python, Spinal Tap   DVDs: Do you prefer widescreen or formatted? Widescreen.   Music: Any preference towards MP3 or CD? CD's...I'm low-tech.   Do you like scented tarts? Sure!   Lip balms? Yes, I use Burt's Bees, or whatever is handy.   Do you have any body mods? If so, do you need any new jewelry, o-rings, plugs, etc (and if so, what size, length, etc)? Do you like pro-body mod stickers? Just earrings, which I adore.   Booze. Do you drink it, would you like some? Love wine and wine accessories. Also enjoy me some spiced rum (arrrr!!)   What is your favorite artist or art style? (including if you have links to favorite pictures/paintings/photographs) Hirschfield.   What is your favorite snack food, something you could grab any time? peanuts, dried cranberries, and any type of dark chocolate.   Ebooks? I don't have an ebook reader.   Nail Polish I polish my toes with gold, silver, or very dark red/maroon.   Do you wear make up? - Just on the eyes, nothing special   Socks? Anyone? - Yes! Its hot most of the year, here, but I love big fluffy socks to wear to soccer games in the winter!   What is something you use to comfort yourself when feeling yucky, depressed, or in pain? - Dorian, and my fleece comforter (and my hubby)   Favorite Halloween/Scary movies? "The Changeling", a real creeper with George C. Scott. "The Ring" was pretty good, too. Can't take slasher movies.   Favorite Halloween/Scary books? Nah

I believe I have 8 or 9 that I use at various faires.   Are you going to reveal yourself or do you want your witchee to let you know that they know if they do?? Yes and Yes.

SW ?s Day 8

Could you use a 'travel' imp case? How many should it hold? Fabulous question! Yes Yes Yes! Imp # for me would be 6 minimum, and oh, about 20 max. That's one of my favorite parts of going away, carefully selecting who will travel in my imp case (which is currently a sandwich baggie).   What fictional character do you most identify with and why? Bilbo Baggins. I'm short, love to eat, enjoy an adventure once in a while, and have hairy toes (or is that TMI?).   What is your idea of a perfect evening? Going OUT for dinner with the hubster, maybe dancing at a club, then home for a glass of wine and some hawt mano a wifo action.   May I help you fill out your costuming wardrobe (assuming you costume)? Are there articles you are seeking to enhance your a) Halloween costume, Renfest attire, c) Cosplay, d) Steampunk accouterment? For moi, I'm always looking for any jewelry or knickknack that would go with my Renfest stuff. I do serving wench, pirate lady, scottish lass, and barbarian babe.

SW ?s Day 7

Are there any childhood shows/movies/games/books/etc. that still hold a really special place in your heart? Does live theater count? My parents took my sis and I to see "The Nutcracker" every year, in whatever city we were stationed - so its not Christmas until I've seen or heard it. But then, I love ballet as a whole.   I read all the Narnia books in my 8th summer, while staying at my grandparent's house. That weekly trip to the library was my LIFE!   We had a record collection (yes, old school) of all the Disney soundtracks - Cinderella, Snow White, Bambi, Sleeping Beauty, etc, and I still have them completely memorized.     There has been a lot of talk about chocolate, but none about Candy! What is your favorite Candy? What candy do you hate? What is this "candy" of which you speak?   I guess my favs must incorporate CHOCOLATE, so they'd be Cherry Cordials and Martha Washington Candy (which my grandma used to make - when I was six I ate so much of it I had an allergic reaction and had to go to the ER on Christmas. Ahhh, good times).

March Hare   Do you believe we control our destiny, or does our destiny control us? I believe we have freedom of choice within a given, broad plan for us.   What one thing that is missing from your life would you like to have above all else? Money. It always gets in the way, that lack of it.   If I send you whole spices or coffee beans, would you be able to grind them or would you prefer them preground for your convenience? We can grind them here.   Favorite Dessert: Dark Chocolate ice cream.   In your perfect world it is chocolate and...? Dark chocolate and more dark chocolate.   How do you scent your home: tarts, reed diffusers, BPAL, candles? I use as many candles (any type) as possible, to cover the wet dog smells.   Do sounds make you happy? What ambient noises make you smile? The sound of my hubby's soprano sax - sexy and soothing. My sons laughing together. Especially at my jokes (rare). Harp music. You can't make harp music sound bad, even when the notes are wrong. THUNDERSTORMS!

Its one of the ones I currently do - musical director at a theater.   Which three albums would you take to your apocalypse bolt hole and how would you power the generator?[/b ]Bach's complete Brandenburg Concertos, Compiled Works of Aaron Copeland, and a compilation albumn of Rush; generated by my breathing.   What GC scent have you been putting off getting since it'll "always be there"?

And, of course, if a picnic lunch sounds like a horrible idea, feel free to say so! My hubby and I, at our favorite autumnal picnic spot by the lake in Princeton (where we used to live), watching the Princeton crew team row by. We'd be eating strawberries, New Jersey sweet corn on the cob, fried chicken made by my deceased grandmother, and champagne, with lots of chocolate cordials for dessert. Oh yes, and there would be no ants. Or bees. And after the food, the making out.   Do you like pin up art/images? I think they are lovely, but would not include them in my decorating scheme.     Steampunk? Love it.   BPAL forum buddies? Wow, I've bought from a lot of decant circles, but no one I converse regularly with (although I love you all)(but not in a creepy stalker way)(much).   What are your plans for Halloween? Have you made any yet? Do you have any traditions? Our tradition is to have the scariest house on the block. For the last several years, we've had a real skeleton in a monk's robe, staring out of our spiral staircase full-length window, scarey scream/howls/laughter/storm CD blasting through outdoor speakers, and eeiry (sp) outdoor lighting.   Once to the door (which creaks year round), you are greeted by a the sound of scarey organ music, smoke from the fog machine, and a witch (guess who) and told you must come into the conservatory to get your candy. I usher them forward to my piano studio, which is covered by spiderwebs, and my dh, dressed as a monk, is playing (very loudly) along with the organ music - the candy bowl is on the bench beside him.   Then just as you're getting comfortable, a projector beams a spooky face up above the fireplace, which proclaims some lame/scarey pronoucement like "They're coming! You must get out now! RUN!!" We get lots of very frightened children, and tons of freaked out teens (some of whom come back just for kicks).   This year, though, my dh has a new church job, and they have a freakin Harvest Party ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT - so we'll probably be required to help with that (hmmmm is there a piano there? A projector?)   Day4 what are your phobias? Stitches, large-weave cloth (like burlap), ace bandages. I know, weird. That new movie coming out, "9", a stop action flick of little handmade critters in a Tim Burtonesque world - won't be able to watch it. Too many stitches and burlaps. Skives me out, man.   what is your favorite flower (or plant)? Lilacs, Gardenias, Hydrangeas.   An anonymous benefactor gives you $500 (or an equivalent amount of money in your currency of choice) with the following stipulations. You must spend all of it within a week: any money left unspent must be returned. You must spend at least half of the money on yourself. You may not use it to pay off debts or bills of any kind. What do you do with the money? CAN'T USE IT FOR BILLS? Then is MUST be for BPAL! I'd splurge on some of the Salons and Gaimans I've been lusting after! The rest would be spent on books   Day5 Any cooks? Could you use anything cooking related? Aprons? Cookbooks? Measuring Cups? Recipes? Herb/Spice containers? Fancy Spices? Dish Towels? Cocktail napkins? Amazing Beaded Pot Holders? (like from our very own Pottersville! ) Something else?Yeah, what I need IS a cook, to come live here with us and make edible foodstuff. I totally suck at kitchen, but could always use new dish towels or pot holders (to replace all the ones with crispy burnt edges).   What was your favourite job ever? Its one of the ones I currently do - musical director at a theater.   Which three albums would you take to your apocalypse bolt hole and how would you power the generator?[/b ]Bach's complete Brandenburg Concertos, Compiled Works of Aaron Copeland, and a compilation albumn of Rush; generated by my breathing.   What GC scent have you been putting off getting since it'll "always be there"? March Hare.   Day 6
