From: Summer 2013 Switch Witch...

Deep in my junk mail I found a question from my witch... what kinds of things do my kids like? Both of them like candy. My daughter loves suckers and chocolate, my son loves gummy anything. Laine is obsessed with Minions from Despicable Me. She also loves dogs. Nick likes pokemon and minecraft and art.   Source: Summer 2013 Switch Witch...

Thursday July 4/13 If I wanted to include something for your fluffball, what would be good, and what should I stay away from? My dog is really picky. She would love a new pretty collar or bandana, but she doesn't like a lot of treats. If you made something homemade, we don't do wheat but we do other grains. She loves peanut butter. Would homemade treats be something you'd like for your dog/cat? It would depend on the treat. Pika likes peanut butter.   If you get a long weekend this weekend... what are you doing with it? Staying in? Going out? Family? Friends? If you don't get a long weekend, are you OK with that, or a little sad? (If you are Canadian, apply this to last weekend). I'm already off for the summer, so it doesn't matter to me. Would you be interested in getting a kombucha starter and instructions on how to use it to easily make your own fermented, probiotic tea drink? Sorry, no.   Wednesday July 3/13   Anything interesting from the new Paintbox Soapworks update for you? nothing specific but I love soap in general.   What about recycled sari silk yarn, witches and witchees? Only if you make me something from it. I have no skills. Sooo, the Blooddrop update (Aviary and Summer Simplicities). Anything you'd like from there? Chinese Nightingale, Kea, Kestrel (American), Rose-Breasted Cockatoo None of these are must haves but I'd take someone's castaways for sure! Tuesday July 2/13 Every package has to have something blue in it. Blue can also be used to describe more risque humor...how would you rate your general sense of humor? Are you strictly PG-13, R-rated, NC-17? I'm probably R rated.   Do you like puzzles? What kind? Jigsaw, word, etc? Yes. All the puzzles are belong to me.   Source: Summer 2013 Switch Witch...

I love that gif so much. satay sauce:   Monday July 1/13 I know Canadian chips can be different than others, how does "dill pickle" or "ketchup" sound? I don't like ketchup, but I love odd flavoured chips. We have both ketchup and dill pickle chips in Wisconsin, though.   If you were getting a custom Haus of Gloi blend, what four notes would you choose? Summer notes listed here and you can click through to the whole list from there. This is too overwhelming for me right now. I love red musk, black tea, beeswax and honey, cake, fig, sweet cream, vanilla sugar, and amber. You could work from that, right?   QUESTION! Do you like Kickstarter? Are there any projects up that you really like? Maybe. I haven't really done it. I am a teacher so I tend to do donor's choose.   QUESTION! If you have an Etsy wishlist, what are your top 5 favorite things on there? The price is unimportant, not because I'm rich, but because I'd like some inspiration. 1. beanforest magnets; 2. this ring: http://www.etsy.com/listing/82708420/hydrangea-stacking-ring-green-peridot?ref=col_view&atr_uid=5585810 3. this dress for my two year old: http://www.etsy.com/listing/79309984/pearl-silk-tie-back-top-willow?ref=col_view&atr_uid=5585810 4. this concept, if not this exact ring: http://www.etsy.com/listing/71229400/vintage-sterling-silver-flip-ring?ref=col_view 5. this dress: http://www.etsy.com/listing/48823165/mossy-garden-hand-dyed-ragdoll-party?ref=col_view 6. this hat: http://www.etsy.com/listing/30383188/oversized-beehive-beret-hat-in?ref=col_view   How do you feel about glitter? does loose glitter make your skin crawl or would you bathe in it? love it Do you want/need/like/collect journals? If so, do you prefer lined or unlined? yes.   Does the idea of wearing a plant as jewelery give you the warm fuzzies or the heebie jeebies? Neither?   Gourmet popcorn, yes/no? What do you like: glazed, savory, candied? Nuts or not? Any flavors you wouldn't like (like Bacon CHeeseburger, Pizza, Watermelon, Root Beer Float, Hot Chili Dark Chocolate)? Or if any of those sounded interesting, how weird is weird enough? Yes, yes, not, nothing oniony, weird is good but yummy is better.   Question: I make my own hair gloss, would you like some detangling and very shiny hair gloss made by me? This is a 'cone rich blend, not the least bit natural. This is my question, but I want all the hair glosses.   Source: Summer 2013 Switch Witch...

Ooh! I thought of another random thing I want but seem to never buy for myself -- a nice tart warmer. I had one but it broke so now I just warm tarts in a shallow glass jar on my candle warmer LOL.   Source: Summer 2013 Switch Witch...

Thursday June 27/13   I live near the Brown and Haley outlet - makers of Almond Roca and Mountain Bars - would you want anything from the outlet? For nut-haters, they have nutless Roca For the no-sugar folks they have sugar-free as well. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to almonds.   I also have an Oberto jerky outlet local to me - any wants there? I love all the beef jerky, except black pepper. I especially love sweet + hot varieties.   How do you feel about home-canned goods? Iffy. Do you like BPTP clothing? Yes. What size do you wear of:   Baby-doll T's - XL-XXL Regular T's - Medium yoga pants - IDK, but probably XL   Also, what is your favorite lunacy (or non-lunacy) T-shirt that you don't already own? Or other clothes from BPTP? Dragon Moon, Harvest Moon, Moon of Ice... I like the "pretty" ones more than the "cool" ones. I don't have any lunacies and I'd welcome all of them!   What else do you love from the Trading Post site, and need to have? House of unquenchable fire atmo spray. Gula bath oil Luxuria bath oil Amber and Patch hair gloss Snake oil anything, esp. hair gloss Morocco anything I have hair soiled and loosened hair gloss but I'd happily take more. Most any candle would be welcome. Except I am not crazy about dragon's blood in perfume, but that might just be my skin chemistry. Is there a particular movie genre that you like (Fantasy? Drama? Romantic Comedy? Musicals? TV-Series, etc), and what format would you prefer: DVD, Blu-Ray, or something in the cloud (like Amazon, iTunes, Flixster, etc)? I collect Disney DVDS, but I have quite a few. e-card me a hint to list them if you care abotu this one? -Following up on the Adagio question from earlier, what are you top five wishes, for teas and blends? I love pretty much everything except fake fruity stuff. My top five wishes from Teavana (because that's what I know) would be 1. http://www.teavana.com/the-teas/herbal-teas/p/tranquil-dream-herbal-tea 2. http://www.teavana.com/the-teas/oolong-teas/p/monkey-picked-oolong-tea 3. http://www.teavana.com/the-teas/oolong-teas/p/jasmine-oolong-tea 4. http://www.teavana.com/the-teas/herbal-teas/p/honeybush-vanilla-herbal-tea 5. Maharaja Chai Oolong & Samurai Chai Maté for my husband, and I love the way this smells when he drinks it!   I also love their black tea but I don't know which one it is, because I've never bought it, only had it in store.   -Do you have anything that you do ritually, every summer? Ritually? No. But there are things we do randomly, every summer. Like eat a deep fried candy bar on a stick. -What are your top five wishes from ThinkGeek? you can find my wishlist with my email address. I especially love harry potter and doctor who stuff.   -Seen anything lately that makes you go OH HOLY FUCK THAT'S AWESOME!! ? yes, but I can't find anything like it online. Do you like audiobooks? If so, do you have/would you like to try Audible? (I'm an addict, myself.) Only when I'm driving distances by myself, which doesn't happen often anymore.   Chocolate: Love? Hate? Allergic? If love, what are your faves? I like chocolate. Milk chocolate with crispy bits or mint especially. I burned out on dark chocolate + spicy. OMG, vosges mo's plus bacon and the sea salt one, I can't remember what it's called. Otherwise, I like Lindt.   Source: Summer 2013 Switch Witch...

I thought of something totally random that I'm coveting like crazy -- a pair of ice skates for my daughter. She's two and wears a size 7 shoe. The smallest skates I can find locally are size tens, which rub on her ankles. I found a pair of bauer skates on ebay in her size but they are really expensive. On the off chance that my witch is from, like, canada or something, where cheap used little kids skates are readily available, I thought I'd mention it.   Source: Summer 2013 Switch Witch...

Wednesday June 26/13   Do you have any long trips coming up? If so, could you use things to occupy yourself? No, but I could still use things to occupy myself on a bunch of short trips. I'm going to Jungle Jim's next week (it's basically a massive international food gasm in Ohio, look it up); would anything interest you? OMG, I want to go. I want all the things. I love to try new foods so much. But I'm really picky. I know that that's an odd combination.   Name three things that you could use, but might not necessarily think to get for yourself? Pretty things for my hair--I always talk myself out of spending money on pretty things; those long ice tea spoons; a honey dipper   Does anything from the TP Etsy update interest you? I added a few things to my etsy wishlist, but I don't think there was anything where I was like OMG I'VE BEEN LONGING FOR THIS.   I just found out Oreo is launching ones with watermelon flavor in the USA only. Is it something you would enjoy? I am not really a fan of the whole Oreo concept. I like the mint ones crushed up in things and that's about it.   What are the three BPALs you would most like to receive - one GC, one not-hard to find LE, and one HTF LE from your dreams? I think I did this one, but my answer might be different today LOL. 1. Crowley 2. this is hard because I don't know what goes in this category... how about Pink Plastic Flamingo. 3. Romanti.goth; red musk infernal lover   If you don't consider yourself in a "fandom" (and I get that ... I don't really go overboard on my liking of any TV show/Movie/etc), are there any TV shows or Movies that you really like and/or watch regularly or any actors/actresses you wouldn't leave standing in the rain (unless you like looking at them sopping wet, in which case ... well, nevermind)? This might be a better description of my relationship to Doctor Who than straight up fangirl. I would definitely not leave Paul Walker standing. I think he'd look best on his back with me ... nm. That's inappropriate.   So, dear witchee, would you like some Tw*twaffle soap or scent or lotion? Soap yes. Scent, maybe. Lotion, no.   Has anyone asked about tattoos? Do you love them? Hate them? Have any? Want any? this was my question. I love tattoos! I have two and several more planned... I don't just want to be polka dotted with random tattoos though and I'm afraid that's where I'd end up if I don't show some restraint.   Source: Summer 2013 Switch Witch...

What are the three BPALs you would most like to receive - one GC, one not-hard to find LE, and one HTF LE from your dreams? 1. Crowley 2. Creepy or samhainophobia maybe? I don't know how hard to find these are. 3. ROMANTI.Goth or the red musk Infernal Lover seems pretty evasive. and I'm not sure how Fairy Market fits in there, but I want that, too.   If you knit/crochet, what sizes of needles do you need? I'd take anything; I'm just learning.   What styles of artwork do you like? I like a lot of different artwork, maybe look at my etsy favourites for an idea? I really like plasticpumpkin's chinese brushwork. http://www.etsy.com/people/malibusunny/favorites/items-i-love/?page=5   If you cook, would you be interested in-hand made spice mixes/rubs? Yes! I don't like fennel though, and i really mean it.   Would you like mexican vanilla or silver rings/necklaces? So much! I love vanilla, and I love silver rings (size 7) and I love silver necklaces!   The Conjure Oils update (http://conjureoils.com/emporium.htm) looks absolutely fabulous...I didn't know she made soaps and candles and whanot. Is there anything from the Oddment Emporium you would like? Did I do this one already? VOLUPTUARY!!   I'd also try: FIRE DRAGON PARASOL HELIOPHOBE SUGAR AND FILIGREE   I like soaps and perfumes. I don't like lotions. I'd try the dry perfume spray, or the whips, but they are lower on my list of wants. But if they were something you already had, I'd totally try them.   What is your favorite color? Yellow, but not for wearing   What is your favorite season? Autumn, except when it's summer. Then I never want summer to end.   Source: Summer 2013 Switch Witch...

Here's my Heaven and Earth Essentials Wishlist. As far as products, I love the tub cakes, shine on shampoo and conditioner (would totally love to try other shampoos and conditioners, too!), and the tarts. And of course just the oils.

Tatsu -- Year of the Dragon 2012 Pyromaniac Namaste any and all of the cakes.   Favourites: Muladhara - Root Chakra Honour Black Vanilla Crème Brulee Lust Lady of the lake Rapture Black Cat Voodoo Punani   Source: Summer 2013 Switch Witch...

Do you have any symbols or totems that are meaningful to you? I love turtles. I don't know that they are meaningful I just love them. I created a symbol to represent my firstborn and I'm working on one for my second. The one for my first is my etsy profile pic: http://www.etsy.com/people/malibusunny?ref=pr_profile   When you are having a really rough day, what do you like to do/have to make it a little brighter? Take a bath with a book and a glass of something (wine would be ideal, but I don't usually have drinking wine in the house, so it's usually something else).   Would you like if your witch sent a regional pop/soda? If so, what type (Root beer, creme soda, cola, citrus-flavored, chocolate-flavored, etc...)? I would, but I feel like this would be an expensive item to send compared to the value of the item. I love cream soda, especially honey cream sodas, though.   Source: Summer 2013 Switch Witch...

Summer Blues Blog 2013

Sunday June 23/13   Is there a Quote that resonates with you, or that you particularly like a lot. Would this be something you would like artwork made of for your walls or a shirt/bag/scarf? -"Every little thing is gonna be all right" from three little birds. I'd like it on jewelry or something small I carried, but probably not on a shirt.   Also, STARBUCKS, Yay or Nay? Anything you particularly like? -yay! I really like peppermint mochas. And just plain coffee, all the coffees, I just get whatever is the daily one.   Is there someone on the forums (within SW or not) who knows you really well and might be able to help with stalking? --hmmm, I don't think so.   If you happen to find out who yours is, how much would it bother you? --it wouldn't bother me, but I do like the suspense.   Do you use waxmelts or tarts? If so, which ones do you prefer? --I have some from two timing tart that i love   Do you enjoy drinking hot chocolate, and would you like stuff to make it with, or to add to it? --I am hot chocolate neutral.   Have you ever tried Spoonfudge? Would you enjoy it if your Witch would send you some? Which of the flavors would you like? --I have never heard of this. I generally don't like fudge but I do like "hot fudge" so I guess if it's more like hot fudge in consistency?   What's your opinion on Moonalisa? Any favorites or products you'd like to try? -I have no opinion, but I'm open to trying it!   Are there any BPALs that you loved the idea of, the imagery - whether artwork or description - but which didn't work out for you? (I'm asking because if they did, you might mention them elsewhere, but if not, the imagery might be helpful) --I really, really wanted to love black temple burlesque troupe, but don't.   Saturday June 22/13   Put your mp3 player/online music/itunes/etc on random and list the next 10 songs here: -we own a DJ company, so this wouldn't be representative of me at all.   what is your favourite object, that you own, ignoring sentimental reasons for attachment? So I guess something you find beautiful, or fun, or incredibly useful. -my new bookshelves! or my kitchenaid mixer, that's what I would have said before I got the bookshelves.     How big is too big...for something to hang on your walls? If I'm painting you a pretty picture, are there maximum dimensions that you have/prefer? - I don't have a specific space in mind for anything, so I could probably do just about any size.   Gift cards/vouchers - yay or nay? If you like them - which stores would you like one for? -I do love them. I am not picky about where they'd be from -- I think it's really fun to get a gc from a totally new place I've never been, just to try something new.   Is there anything from Australia you would like? eg: snacks (yes, you can ask for Tim Tams!), books, magazines, memorabilia? -I don't know of anything specific, but my husband loves Australia, he'd probably be thrilled with anything!   Do you have any problems with swearing or particularly off-color humor? -absolutely not. I actually own a cookbook called "what the fuck should we make for dinner?"   What style is your sense of humour? -I don't really have a sense of humour.   Opinions on table top games, from cards and board games, to dice and rpgs. What do you like? What don't you like? Favorites? Any classics you like? Do you collect any? -I have no particular opinion on these -- I like games of all kinds but my husband doesn't so I don't really have anyone to play with. I do collect pokemon cards LOL.   What would you like from the most recent BPAL update? What are you planning on buying for yourself and what would you like to try? --most recent update, I really want HGM and might buy it. I'm curious about all the natures but STENTOR stands out as the one I'm the most interested in.   Is there a literary character you identify with? Even if it's not spot-on, just someone you found yourself having that "I identify with this" feeling? -Yes, but I'll be damned if I can put my finger on it right now. Huh.   What are the three books you most want to read right now, and which you don't already have? -the new Jeanette Walls -the new Neil Gaiman -I can't pick a third,too many options   Would you like something from Empire Edibles? (http://www.etsy.com/...s?ref=top_trail) -Caramels!   Is there anything small you try to collect from everywhere you visit? -Rocks   Witchee, I know that SW isn't about what you get... but could you name one thing you would be heartbroken not to get and one thing you would be a-ok if it didn't make it in your box? (i.e. do you REALLY want perfume oil of some sort, or would you be totally heartbroken if there was no Lush in your box, etc -I'd really like to get something from my bpal wishlist... there's not any one thing that would heartbreak me if I didn't get it but I think I'd be sad if I didn't get any bpal at all!   Do you like tarot cards, pendulums and rune stones etc? If so, what type? -not specifically   What fandoms do you belong to? -Doctor Who!! And pokemon lol.   What cheers you up? -Coffee, cheese straws, music, silly gifs, people being kind   Who or where would you most want to haunt? Who would you least want to be haunted by? -I don't really believe in this sort of thing, but if I'm just being silly, I'd like to haunt a concert venue of some sort. Free concerts forever!!   What question do you hate to answer? - why i'm a teacher   What is the best compliment you have/could receive? -that I'm a great mother   Would you like anything from an European country? Any particular food or goodies, magazines, books, whatever would be available to your witch in his/her country. -food. I like food.   Do you like bags? If so, what type (rucksack, clutch, shopping bag) colour and would you like/need a new one? -yes. I like them all. LOL. Except those quilited ones with the woman's name? vera bradley?   What's your favourite comfort food(snack or candy etc) and/or drink? - coffee, vanilla coke, cheese straws, chocolate.   Would you be interested in someone writing out for you a favourite recipe, or finding or devising one which they think you'd like? If so, please provide your favourite ingredients, info on how you like to cook/store and use food, and any intolerances - unless all of these are in your questionnaire, or you don't like the idea. (I'm not saying I'd definitely do this, unless someone is keen, and it wouldn't be the only gift). I guess for other witches this might include something like a knitting pattern - not my thing but would you like that? Or indeed would you like a picture created for you (if so what kind) or a story written? (sorry if this feels a bit Spanish Inquisition!) -I'm overwhelmed by this question.   If you knew you were going to live comfortably for say 800 years, what profession, calling or project might you pursue with some of your extra years, which you imagine you may not do in the life that you have? -if I could live comfortably and not need my salary, I'd probably still work with at risk teenagers, I'd just be a mentor instead of a teacher.   Is there any thing - an object, a donation on your behalf, some research done for you, whatever - that your witch could do about this that you would like? And if you can't think of a present, would you rather she/he (I!) didn't either and confined themselves to things you are already involved in? -I can't understand what this is asking   What colors/style is your kitchen decor? And do you entertain in your home? my kitchen door is just wood. I don't do a lot of entertaining, because my husband hates to have people in our house. otherwise, I totally would.   Are your ears pierced? yes, twice.   Do you like stuffies/stuffed animals/art doll type thingies? If so, any particular type you'd love to get? Yes.   Switch Witch is, of course, all about you.....but if your Witch was so inclined, are there wee little ones in your home that will get jealous and are just too young to understand why you won't share the love, who maybe need a touch of Witchee love all their own, to distract them while you hide all your lovelies?!? My kids would love stuff, yes. And I enjoy giving them stuff LOL.   Thursday June 20/13 Do you read literature/culture blogs or websites of any kind? I'm thinking about anything that would help a putative witch to get a sense of what your current tastes in books, movies, games, genres, approaches to culture and literature and so forth are -not really   How do you feel about traditional picnics (namely the intimate table for two variety)? Old-fashioned basket or something more utilitarian (cooler/insulated bag)? -I'm not a picnicker   If you were put in a room with 100 random other people the same age and sex as you, from your country, in what way do you think you would be different from the average? -hmm. I'd have longer hair, I'd be slightly more educated, I'd smell the best of everyone LOL.   Haus of Gloi did a Reverie update! Do any of them interest you? (Or anything else up currently?) -nothing stands out, but NO BANANA. I forgot to mention this before. I hate banana.   Witchee, do you cook? Do you do all the cooking? Is it a chore or a pleasure? -I cook. My husband cooks. It's a pleasure when we can do it at leisure, we both love to cook. But it's a chore to feed everyone, if that makes sense.   Which reading level do you prefer to read in YA or Adult? Or even both? -I like both, but I do read a lot of YA because I'm a teacher. And I really like it.   Wednesday June 19/13   If you could have one rare bpal which one would you choose? --romanti.goth as far as things I know I love, I don't know how rare it is but it's rare enough that I can't get my hands on it.   (Feel free not to answer, I know it's not a standard one!) Are you kinky?   Do you enjoy scented candles? Certain sizes that you like? What kind of scents or brands? -Yes. I like all sizes.   Thoughts about South Africa? Have you been here, would you like to go? Would you like to receive anything South African? --I've never been. We know a few people from South Africa, so in theory we have connections for South African stuff, but I don't really know of anything specific.   Do you like Sockdreams? If so, what styles would you prefer? (You can also link your wishlist.) -Yes. I can't get my wishlist to work, though.   Do you need hair accessories? If so, what kind or color? -Always... anything LOL. I love it all.   What is your favorite shade of blue? -Teal   Do you have any kitchen gadgets (a SodaStream, a Kuerig/Tassimo) that you want mix things for? -I have a keurig and a sodastream. I'd totally use stuff for both of them.   If you were to start learning something new (intellectual or craft or hobby), what would it be? -I want to learn how to knit for real. I kinda have the basic idea but that's it. I also want to speak all the languages.   What about candy? Do you have a sweet tooth? -When I'm in the mood for it, totally. But not in general. My candy tastes are either really sour or ridiculously sweet, like caramels.   Do you have an e-reader? What kind? Would you like to get ebooks? -yes, a kindle. I love ebooks!   If your witch is an extremely crafty sort, and she were to send all kinds of homemade foody goodies and handmade crafty stuff - what are items you would NOT LOVE to receive. Please dont hedge on this one...some of us are serious crafters and will be making most of what we send! --I would not want decorative scarves at all. or winter scarves/hats that shed, though I love love love winter hats and scarves. Foodwise, I don't want fudge or anything with almonds or onions or fennel.   Witchee dear, do you like video games? Are there any you want to play? Do you have a large library? -I like them, but I don't have very many. We have a Wii, and we love games we can play together. I play a lot of games on the iPad.   Do you have something you do, without fail, as a personal daily habit/ritual? (Examples: pen-and-paper journal keeping, tea/coffee drinking, morning yoga, nightly bedtime reading. I'm kind of thinking on things that would be dear to you and might need small supplies or could use certain extras. ) -I am not a ritual person. I wish I were, though.   Do you wear nailpolish? What colors do you tend to go for? What are your favorite brands? Are you open to trying indie brands? -I love nail polish so much. I like china glaze and OPI because they have clever names LOL. But mostly I like anything and will try anything. I don't need any more purple because I asked my last swap partner for purple nail polish and she really really came through! But I like it all. Sparkles, matte, glossy, changes-in-the-sun, etc. Gimme gimme. LOL.   Name three BPAL scents you hav tried, but are dying to get more of. -ROMANTI.GOTH! -Fairy Market -Crowley   Do you still write real letters on nice stationary to people you like/love? -Yes.   Have you ever tried anything from Paintbox Soapworks? Which products or scents would you prefer? -I think I've had samples from there, but I've never ordered. Soaps and scrubs.   Do you like/have space to garden? If so, what do you grow? -No.   Do you like sample sized things? Think lipgloss, mascara, bodylotion, scrubs, mini candles, and so forth. -yes!   Have you tried Fortune Cookie Soap? What products or scents would you like? -Nope. Those are cute. I'd try that. I'd love soap or shampoo or bath bombs or anything but shower gel.   Do you use solid soaps at all? If so, what kind do or don't you like? -Only solid soaps! I don't like shower gel.   Have you ever tried Cocoa Pink? If you are curious about it, what looks interesting to you? -I haven't! but these sound good: Angel Food Cake; Black; Black Marshmallow; Black Noel; Black Sugar Cake; Black Voodoo; Butterscotch Marshmallow Frosting; Chinatown; Orient Garden; Oriental Jade Iced Tea; Pink Patchouli; Rice Crispy Treat   Do you like Lush? If so, what is your favorite product that is currently available, also, what is a product that you love but has been discontinued? -I love lush. I love the butter ball and the pink bath bombs. They used to have a "hippie" nag champa-y kind of something I loved, but I can't remember what it was called. Also, there was a no-almond body butter or massage bar that I loved that I can't remember what it was called. I'm not much help, am I? LOL.   Do witches prefer the answers posted here, but a more cherry-picked number of questions answered, or a more exhaustive list posted in the blog, which means posting here much less? -I like both. DO BOTH. LOL. No, I'm more likely to see it on a blog, but I like the give and take nature of the thread.   Anyone a fan of Shiro Cosmetics? Any particular products? Eye shadow pigments in general? -I don't know this company.   Are there any companies, products, or items you boycott? -Nestle.

Historical, literary, ANYTHING, and why? -I don't think I can answer this.

Or anything for my single cup coffee maker (Keurig)   Jane Austen .. Yay or Nay? Nay. Instant sleep for me.   I put up quotes I love in my office and studio to get me going, They range from goofy to sarcastic to inspirational... Are you interested in a hand painted quote?

The story, the art/style, etc? I'm not really a fan.   If you could choose a Smack, what would it have in it? My first one was 2 incense, dirt, and chocolate. I was thinking about trying all the really sweet ones: marshmallow, buttercream cupcake, vanilla bean... and something else. I am also curious about suede (they don't come mixed up)   if you could have a salon scent made, based on any artwork(s) what would it be? This is hard, because what i want to smell like and my favourie art pieces are so different. I think Saturn Consuming his Children would make an interesting scent, but I wouldn't want to wear it. LOL.   Are you scientifically curious and/or process-oriented? Would you like a project-type gift that allowed you do do something like make soap from scratch, take and (nontoxic-ly) develop photographs using a pinhole camera, use plant dyes on yarn or fabric, etc.? I'd love a project. I currently have bath bombs and hair conditioner projects in the works. I've done soap and lip balm inthe past too.   What's 'your' song/your theme song? I don't think I have one. If I did, maybe 3 little birds.   What would be your superpower? can it be teleporting?   Witchee, would you like a gently used BPAL tshirt? Yes.   Do you like homemade snack mixes?

They're kinda one of my favorite things ever, and they're animal-friendly and the handles are bamboo. And to top it all off, they work really well for applying makeup. Yes, I would love a medium sized cheek blusher kind of brush.   Do you like Legos? Especially mini-fig key chains, Lego block keychains, small Lego sets, etc? Yes.   Since the previous question about "what would you buy from the Lab if you had unlimited funds, etc" left WAY too much to the imagination with no limitations (my answer was pretty much BUY ALL THE THINGS!), what would you do if you found a $50 bill on the ground and a nagging voice in the back of your mind told you that you HAD to spend it on BPAL or else face Death. Also, say they had free shipping (LOL) so don't factor that in. What would you get? And spend it all! Or as close to $50 as you can get. Snake Oil Hair Gloss OR Honey Hair Gloss and TKO v3 from the Etsy shop. Probably that.   Are there any characters that you love or identify with? TinkerBell, but not the new pixie hollow tinkerbell. the old tinkerbell, who bit Peter Pan and called him an ass.   A question! If you are crafty, what's your personal art style? I'm not talking just about what art you like to look at, but what kind of art do you like creating? Do you have a "process" while you're creating beauty? Hmmm. Not sure about a style, though I am sure I have one to others. My process is very physical -- I start doing and let it happen, messing with things and seeing how they turn out, rather than starting with a finished product in mind.   Are there any Arcana Weenies that you MUST HAVE? EVERYTHING. But especially: Reign in Hell Perfume Oil (Limited Edition): Serve in Heaven Perfume Oil (Limited Edition): Ghost Pumpkin Perfume Oil (Limited Edition): Caffeinated Death Perfume Oil (Limited Edition): Hobbedy’s Lantern Perfume Oil (Limited Edition): Kincardine Maiden Perfume Oil (Limited Edition): . Song of Songs: Comfort Me With Apples Little Ghoulie Perfume Oil (Limited Edition): Which is, well, almost everything. I might love Arcana's Halloween update as much if not more than BPAL's.   So what say you? IS an "unexpected" visit/in-person witching OK? Mostly okay, as long as you don't expect to come into my house.     September 19th   What strange misc. items would you love to receive that you just haven't gotten for yourself?: I was just thinking about this at Target today, but I'll be damned if I can remember what provoked the thought.   How do you feel about franken polish? Are you okay with all chemicals, or would you prefer 3 free? Would you want glitter or holographic glitter? What colors would interest you? I'm good with all of it.

Nail stuff, hair glaze, expensive candy bars   Darling Witchee, would you enjoy farmer's market pickled veggies (green beans, garlic, asparagus, etc) or fresh canned peaches or something of that nature? Not especially -- I get a lot of that already   Do you prefer color or white photographs? Nature or abstract? I like black and white   would you be interested in something like this? https://lostcrates.com/how-it-works ha, this is my question. LOVE.   Amigurumi, yes or no? Depends on what it looks like.   I have a question! What are some of your favorite paintings? (famous or undiscovered?) Feel free to link to examples! Famous artist, less famous painting -- Cezanne's the Forest   If you could have an image painted for you - sky is the limit - what would it be? I don't know.

I would like those for yoga.   Is there anyone here who likes toe socks? You know, those socks with a place for each toe? I do!   September 18th   Do you wear t-shirts? Are there particular things you like on them? Would you like one designed by your Witch? And, if you don't mind saying, what size t-shirt do you wear? I go through phases where I wear them a lot and phases where I don't. I don't like the feeling of new regular crew neck t shirts, but I like the "vintage" feeling ones. I love upcycled t's. I wear a large for the most part.   How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc.... I love pumpkin but hate clove.   Has anyone else heard of or does anyone else love Glamourkin? Never heard of it/them.   September 17th   Are you looking for a certain kind of DVDs to spruce up your collection right now? No.   Does anyone like postcards?

And if you do, what do you grow? If not, would a starter garden kit be something you'd be interested in? I don't. I want to, in theory, but it's a lot of work in practice   Do you decorate for Halloween? Is your decorating taste elegant, kitschy and fun, or scary? We decorate like whoa.

Summore Ketchup

9/22/10 Do you have a deviantart print wishlist or favourites list? yes! under malibusunny, I believe   Is there anything from Blooddrop that you want to try? GC? Halloween update? 8:30 AM Casting a Spell Happy Halloween Jill o' Lantern Seance Things that go, “Bump!” in the Night   What kind of shoes do you need/want? What size shoes do you wear? Would you mind gently used shoes? I love sexy sexy heels. I'm dying for some Vibram Five Fingers. I wear an 8 wide. I'd take gently used shoes, yes. Do you like paper dolls (new or vintage) or coloring in books? Not really paperdolls, but I love colouring books.   Do you like weird scary things as traditionally girly fashion items like heels and handbags? I don't know what this means? probably no?   What song is on heavy rotation for you right now? The Mountain Goats - Oceanographer's Choice   Are you coveting any of the NYCC atmospheric sprays? Nope.   9/21/10 Do you like garlic? Do you REALLY like garlic? Would you want to try some really unusual garlic stuff, like garlic cheese or garlic fudge or garlic chocolate, etc., etc., etc.? I really love garlic. I'd try almost anything garlic, as long as there aren't onions or almonds involved.   Can I talk to you about the living dead? How do you feel about Zombies? I'm indifferent.   9/20/10 If you happened to be my Witchee, is there something you'd like from the Arcana Halloween update? I think I answered this in the thread but now I can't find it. At any rate, Caffeinated Death, Dia de los Muertos, Guy Fawkes and I will always take more Holy Terror.   How many bottles of BPAL do you have? Um, a lot? 56 I think. Is there any exercise program that you're interesting in learning? Meditation, Yoga, Pilates, Belly Dancing, Zumba ect? Or if you do any of these (or anything else sport related) are there any things you need/want? Candles, music, mats, water bottles ect? Not seriously.   Anyone else into Emily Autumn? No. What's on your walls? Please show us up to three paintings/posters/whatever. If you love a painting so much that you would steal (to watch it with your greedy eyes) one, please share. On my walls -- A hand drawn Tinker Bell, Swans Reflecting Elephants, and I'd steal the stained glass windows from the Chicago museum.   do you like Girl Scout cookies? What kind? Sort of. Thin Mints are good. What's your take on homemade apple butter? Want some? Yum. Yes.   9/19/10 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? I like to read fantasy, but I don't know what I would want.   Soaps : do you like them? What brands? What scents? Anything you're dying to try? I love soaps. Villaness. Arcana.   I wondered if my witch or any witch would enjoy things like nice pens to draw with or anything similar? I love really clean writing fine point pens. Not to draw with, but to write. I also like pens for writing in scrapbooks.   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.? This does not apply to me. LOL.   Does anyone do altered books? Would you be interested in old books to alter? Any type or title in particular? I'd love old hardcover books with "Nick" or "Nicholas" in the title.   Did someone ask about incense yet? Would you like some? Something to store or burn it in? What scents? What form? Yes.   Any oddball free things you collect or would want saved for you? This was my question because I thought of something, but now I'm drawing a blank.   9/18/10 Who likes hair toys, and if so what kind? I do, all kinds.   Does any art we may send need to be child safe, either in the actually safe sense or the non X rated sense? yes, but my definition is pretty broad. Like, nudity is okay, pornography is not.   In the knitted/crocheted things area, would you want wrist warmers, 1/2 gloves, a neck warmer(the kind that pretty much just goes around your neck and maybe fastens instead of being long and loose like a scarf), slippers, or hats? Wrist warmers would be cool.   How do you feel about altered/recycled/upcycled items of clothing or accessories? Positively. Is there anything you want from the Violette Market update? I'll come back to this, I have to look. What is your favourite habitat and climate to live in? How about to visit? (ie. forest, canyons, mountains, by the beach; temperate, tropical...) Live... I don't know. But I like to travel to beaches and woods.   What do you wish you could make/craft if you had the know-how and supplies? Specifically, which particular items? I have no idea.   Is there anything you would like from Conjure Oils general catalogue or the new updates that isn't already on your wishlist? I'll come back to this, I have to look.   Am I alone in this, or is there a Book Fair/Comic Con scent you're dying to get your paws on, too? Apparently not.   Anyone need address/phone type books? Nope.

9/16 & 9/17 ketchup

9/17/10 Are there any particular movies, tv shows or cd’s that you’ve been meaning to buy for years but just never got round to getting? Would you mind a gently used dvd/cd if your witch had it or could get it?? Freaks and Geeks, Dawson's Creek, Gilmore Girls,and maybe Buffy. K would love Degrassi. Is there anything from the Possets' Hallowe'en update you're lusting after? Not lusting, but wouldn't mind trying Dark, Hell, Veronica, Wraith Would you like a custom/altered toy either from a seller or from your witch (like My Little Pony, or a Barbie or any particular toy that can be changed?) Not really. Do you like the candy apple, candy corn or pumpkin spice kisses? I haven't tried any of them, but they all sound good.   Anne Taintor, anyone? Yes please. I really want a flask. Which web comics do you enjoy? Married to the Sea, several others I can't think of at the moment.   9/16/10 If I were to knit a scarf, would you prefer a skinny one, or a wide one? A short one, that when wrapped once around your neck will just tuck under your jacket, or a long one, at least to your waist? I don't know. I like them all. Just not sheddy -- my black coat picks up everything, and that's the one I am most likely to wear with a scarf, since everything matches it.   Don't like scarves? Would a rectangular shawl or triangular shawl be more to your taste? I am not sure how I feel about shawls.   How do you feel about recipes? I consider them suggestions, rather than rules.   What kind of a cook/baker are you? Are you happiest calling for delivery or microwaving a lean cuisine, Or will Food Network be asking you to host their new program? Totally depends on my mood. Sometimes I will spend whole days cooking, other days I just want to not be responsible. I'm happiest cooking for people who don't live in my house.   If I send you something home made would you like the recipe for it? Yes   How about home made mixes or kits? Kind of like the cookie in a jar thing, where you would need to add the perishable ingredients? Depends. Breakfast stuff would totally get made, though. if you are a tea lover, what are your flavor preferences? Green? Black? Herbal (I know, technically those are NOT teas, but tisanes)? Flavored blacks/greens? I used to be really into tea, but I've been drinking coffee for a few years now. I'm pretty open except that I hate fennel, anise, and slippery elm. I don't like artificial flavours, like "raspberry" tea that tastes like "raspberry" and not raspberry. If that made any sense.

not enough condiments in the whole world!

9/15/10 How do you feel about silly, funny knick-knack, dollar store stuff, stickers, magnets etc? Would you like receiving that kind of stuff or rather not? Love it!   Is there a specific book you've been wanting to get but haven't found the time or the opportunity to? Yes; The Help by Katheryn Stockett.   Do you read mangas/watch animes? Which ones? Do you have a particular favourite? Would you like to receive managas or anything related to them? Pokemon!!!!   Are you open to receiving things that are not on your wishlist, maybe something your Witch thinks you might like? Absolutely!   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? Yes, that would be great. OK, I know that lots of folks love socks. Do you have a preference of length? Materials? Patterns? I love socks where the big toe is separate. I like over the knee socks. I love tie dye. I like stripes and cabling.   How do people feel about word magnets I have a set of LOL Cats ones that I adore.   9/14/10 Chocolate or other types of candy? Yes, please. LOL. I don't like cherry flavouring or coconut, and I'm allergic to almonds. I am a little burned out on dark chocolate. I love love love peppermint bark, but otherwise I don't like white chocolate much.   For tea drinkers, do you prefer loose leaf or tea bags? Either is fine. I drink loose mostly at home, but I do bring bags to work and will bring them more as it gets colder outside.   If you would enjoy something of a knitted persuasion, do you have a preference on type of thing? Since making a scarf for someone who has 10 might be a smidge excessive? Also, how do people feel about shawls? I don't know how I feel about shawls. I have knitted things on my etsy favourites, maybe there is a style there that can be discerned.   Is there a TV, movie or literary character that you are a lot alike, or would like to be alike? I apparently don't watch enough TV to know if I am like anyone on TV.   Is there anything you need for your kitchen, ie measuring cups, spoons, grater, ect? I could use an apple peeler. I always need things to help me open other things.   Music, DO you prefer Live or Studio? Edited or explicit? Depends. I love good live, but I'm not a fan of live for live's sake.   If you are an animal lover, is there a specific type/breed that you love most? I love my dog, but I don't know what she is. St. Bernard mix. My favourite breed is Bernese Mountain Dogs.   Also flowers and plants- If you like flowers/plants, do you have a favorite(s)? I like almost all cut flowers. Plants; I like the kind that are easy to keep alive. And juniper bonsai.   Do you have a favorite quotation? Song lyric? Book passage? WhateverthehecktheycalltheanonymousregionalwisdomthingiePROVERB! that word. Quotations -- "There are many things worth living for, a few things worth dying for, and nothing worth killing for." — Tom Robbins   What is a bpal scent that you've been dying to try for awhile but just can't find? (A scent where even a tester would do) Yes! Schrodinger's Cat, Spinning Multicolored Metallic Pinwheel, Bonfire Night, Dorian, and any of the .goths.     Let's say, hypothetically speaking, that you have some children/spawn (1 or more), and, hypothetically speaking, your witch would like to spoil them a little but knows nothing of kids these days. What do they like or dislike? Also is there anything a (sane) adult might think they would like that you don't think is appropriate for whatever reason? (I'm thinking of things like temp tattoos, make up, things that make noise, or anything else that might be bad for non-obvious reasons.) Bring on the temporary tattoos! LOL The only thing I am weird about is I don't like "superhero" stuff. Nick is really into Avatar the Last Airbender, though. I don't like the character thing in general all that much but I hate the "violence is the best solution to all problems!" mentality of superhero stuff.   Is there anything you would like that can be delivered over the internet? Things like fanfic recs, cat macros, mp3s you are looking for, how-to or amusing videos, things like that I don't know, specifically, but sure.   What would your last meal be if it could be anything in the world (sky is the limit, drinks too, the whole shebang) This is so hard. I suppose I would want tiny bites of everything. A little rare steak, a little buttery lobster, a little proscuitto, a little jamon serrano, a little provolone, a little bunch of olives, a couple bites of pasta, a slice of homemade bread, a tiny bit of brie, a sip of tortilla soup, a nibble of prik king, a touch of pad seeu, a bite of allenville corn, a bite of fried potato, a bowl of perfect fruits, a little something chocolate, a bite of tiramisu, and sips of wine to go with everything.   NaNoWriMo? Yes, last year was my first time. It was intense.

Do you like journals/notebooks/sketchbooks? I like them, but I'm not in love with them. I don't draw but I like sketchbooks anyway because I glue things in them.   Latest lab update? I don't know how I feel about it yet.   How do you feel about stationery, like nice pens or notepaper? Like. I used to be stationery obsessed. I also love all the stuff at KnockKnock.com -- the folders crack me up.   Would you like homemade preserves (e.g. marinated vegies, pickled onions, chilli jam?) I hate onions. I don't like jellies or jams. I'm pretty picky about this sort of thing. I love apple butter and pumpkin butter, though.   Would you like something you have to make yourself? Maybe; only if I have the skills.   Say you were my witchee, and I found things on your wishlist that I could totally make. Would you want me to make it? Or would you rather it be purchased for you? Make it!   Partial bottles? Absolutely!   Who is your favorite soap etailer? Arcana, Villaness   What kind of make-up do you wear? What colors? Is there anything you'd like to try but haven't yet? I wear lancome foundation and mascara pretty much exclusively, but I whore around otherwise. I like MAC shadows.     Eyeshadow Colors: I have a lot of eyeshadow. I can't think of anything I wouldn't want, specifically. I like new, fun things.     Lip Gloss Colors: Light pink     What about vintage decoration items, teacups, etc etc? Not really.   With regards to your gifts, would you prefer your presents' awesomeness evenly spread out (several packages of pretty terrific things) over the round or a slow build-up of awesomeness (going up from pretty cool things to something super-duper cool at the end) to go out with a bang? Do you have a preference? I just want to know when I'm getting my last thing. I'm not good at waiting, so if I know the last thing is the last thing, that's good for me.     Do you crave many Ecards and contact or are you okay with little contact from your Witch? I thought I didn't care but admit that I am a little paranoid that I haven't heard anything.     If you witch made you something and it didn't come out just right, would you still want it? Yes.   If you could see one concert right now, who would it be? IDK. I want to go back in time and see Zeppelin though.     Do you like maple sugar candy? So much. Do you have a place where you list all the BPAL you have or have tried? Yes, but it's on a spreadsheet on my computer, not in internet land   What is your position on the chocolate & bacon flavor combination? Love. Go to your spice cabinet, what are the three most used spices? Sage, Thyme, White Pepper   Microsoft or Apple? I don't care.   Where was your last vacation? What did you like most? To Boston; being with Friend Heather     Would you appreciate receiving handwritten letters and/or postcards (anonymous or not)? How about sending them? I love mail. I tend to forget to send mail back, though.   Would you like a tea cozy? No.

These are a few of my favourite imps

Things I love but haven't jumped to 5mls with yet. I tend to put off buying 5mls of GC scents because there is no pressure. I do try to add a much wanted GC to LE orders each time, though.

Perfume notes

I'm going to slowly try to move some of the info from my spreadsheet to here -- a sort of "best and worst of Sunny's BPAL." I don't know how successful I will be-- it seems sort of ambitious.

More Ketchup

What is your favourite snack food, something you could grab any time? Popcorn, chex mix, cheese -- I like salty things.   Ebooks I don't have a device.   Nail Polish: Yes, please.   Soft/plushy things: Not stuffed animals, but handmade things, yes.   What hobby/craft would you like to learn how to do? knitting! I don't know how, and I'd really like to. Especially I'd like to make socks.   For those who decorate for Halloween, do you prefer cute decorations or creepy ones?: We do a castle for halloween; we have a whole facade for our house. We'd LOVE anything castle themed-- last year, target had sort of punk rock castle stuff but we didn't discover it until it was too late.   Also, as part of the cute-or-creepy question, would you want hand made, molded, glazed (by yours truly!) ceramic decorations (napkin rings, potporri/tart warmers, etc) to add to your stock? Yes!   how do you feel about mortars and pestles would love one.   Is there anything you have a phobia of, or that would make you go "squick" if you saw it in a package? I'm an emetophobe, so no Harry Potter Jelly Beans.   Are you into Austen's books? NO.   Do you read Tarot cards? If not, would you be interested? No, but I like the cool looking cards.   So for those of you who are into Harry Potter at all, which house do you think you'd be sorted into? ravenclaw   What, if anything, is your guilty TV watching pleasure? Ooh, I thought of something -- I watched the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on hulu this summer -- I'd love that. IRL I watch The Big Bang Theory and Law & Order SVU.     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 love pikachu or other pokemon stuff. Celebrity crush?: Paul Walker maybe?   Knitted things?: Yes, please!   What about [mixed or otherwise] DVDs? Sure.   DVDs: Do you prefer widescreen or formatted? Doesn't matter to me.   Music: Any preference towards MP3 or CD? Both are good.   Do you like scented tarts? I don't have a tart warmer, but I would probably like them.   Lip balms? Maybe. Nothing with almond oil, I'm allergic. I prefer the kind I don't have to touch with my fingers.   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? I have no piercings, but I want one like crazy. I'd like pro body mod stickers, yes.   Booze. Do you drink it, would you like some I do, and yes! I don't like coconut, rum, or coconut rum. I love wine but am not crazy about Merlot or Chardonnay; I like red blended table wines and my favourite white is Pinot Grigio. I love mulled wines!   What is your favorite artist or art style? (including if you have links to favorite pictures/paintings/photographs) I like post impressionism (Cezanne) and some modern. My kid is really into Mondrian right now. I also like Duchamp and all that bad 60s-70s stuff in the avocado green and tangerines. Baked goods: Sure, but I'm not that into sweets. And I'm ALLERGIC TO ALMONDS. (I'm going to say that over and over again, because, I like breathing).   Gifts for other household members: Little bits for the 6 yr old would be appreciated.   Are you someone who'd rather have lots of small testers of different things on your wishlist, or would you rather have one or two "big" things? So hard to say. I think I'd rather have a bottle of something I love than testers of stuff I might not like, but on the other hand, I'd be so excited to see a bunch of the things I've longed to sniff. I think I'm easy to please either way.   How about tshirt/bottoms sizes?: T shirts -- It's so variable, but I'm about 42 inches at the bust so usually a large. I prefer tailored ts or really soft, "well worn" crew necks; I just never wear a stiff new unisex t shirt.   Bottoms-- I'm a 12-14, or a large.

Ketchup.

Birthchart: Sure! I don't really know what this means, but it sounds fun.   Box for your BPALS or anything else? I have a great place to store my bottles, and I keep my imps in .357 ammo cases. I wouldn't object to trying something new, but I'm not longing for it.   Cake or Frosting? I'm not really big on either, but I'm super super picky about frosting. I like cream cheese frosting, though. And I love carrot cake without nuts.   Comfort rereads? The Earth's Children series. I actually only have these in hardcover and would love any of the books in paperback, except Clan of the Cave Bear, which I do have in paperback. Enchantment by Orson Scott Card, which I have in paperback. Through the Looking Glass. The Anne McCaffery books about the Unicorn girl and the other series about Pern.   Comic Book:Do you read them? Are there any series you like, or some you would like to try? I really don't. There was a graphic novel I wanted for a while but I have forgotten the title. Disney movies, Yay or Nay, and favourites if you do like them? Yes, I love them. Favourite is The Sword in the Stone. I have it, though. I'm a big Tinker Bell fan but the orignial Tink, not the "disney pixies" Tink.   Do you have a special symbol or totem that is meaningful to you? Peace symbols; also, I am drawn to turtles.   Do you have A VCR, DVD Player or Blue Ray or a combo of the three? We have a VCR, but it's not particularly functional. I have a couple DVD players, no Blu Ray   Do you like the Muppets? Which is your favorite? Nope, not even as a kid.   Do you wear make up? Yes, but I have v. sensitive skin.   Favorite Halloween candy? Maple and honey things, caramel, and candy corn. -- NO ALMONDS! I'm allergic.   Favorite Halloween/Scary movies/books The Nightmare Before Christmas! I know, not scary, but I love it.   Favorite Yankee Candles? Or other brands scents? I think I liked Oatmeal Cookie. There was also a cinnamon toast one I think? I like warm sweets but hate clove, which is sad, because pumpkin scents always have clove. I'm intrigued by the scentstories but I don't have anything. I love the Henri Bendel candles; esp. Basil.   Slightly off topic, but I have a scentbug from Bath and Body Works and I love it. I want a hot pink one. How does everyone feel about glow in the dark radishes? Um, no thanks? If I were to send you a gift certificate for something would you rather get a physical gift certificate in the mail? Or would you prefer an electronic one that you can use right away? Either way is great.   If you could be any person, being, or animal from Fantasy what or who would you be? This question is too hard.   If you could go back to any point in time, where, when? I'm a cheeseball, but I'd go back to when my baby was still a baby.   If you could have any creature (real or imaginary) as a pet, what would it be? A dragon.   If you were to receive a knitted item (such as a scarf, hat, etc), what colors would you like? And do you have any sensitivies/allergies to any materials? I love hot pink and caramel brown and dark green. I'm allergic to rabbit. Name a couple of sites you frequent other than this one? I favourite things at etsy but don't buy them. I play on facebook a lot.   School/Classes: I teach. I am doing my practicum for my master's in counseling. I'd love to take a knitting class but I fear I am hopeless.   Socks? Sock Dreams? Anyone? Sock Dreams FTW! Thigh High Socks RULE! Steampunk, yay or nay? If yay, what part appeals most? Sure.   Warm drinks? Mulled wine. Apple Cider. Coffee flavoured coffee. English Breakfast Tea.   What is something you use to comfort yourself when feeling yucky, depressed, or in pain? Water. I'm such a pisces. heat, like those rice things you put in the microwave.   What movie scared the bejeezus out of you as a child? I don't remember a movie, but I was scared of the Incredible Hulk (I called it the crippled hawk) when I was a preschooler.   What places to do you visit that you'd like a gift card to? Brick and mortar? B&N, Noodles&Company (my kid loves to eat there!), Melting Pot. Internet: Itunes, Ticketmaster, ThinkGeek, probably a million more. What's YOUR favorite word? Someone already said Serendipity, but I love that word. I loved the Serendipity books as a child and if my son had been a girl instead, he'd have been Laine Maralee Serendipty Lastname.   When you go to an etsy wishlist, it will tell you what things are sold. If you click on the sold item, sometimes it will give options that are similar to what was sold, but not identical, would you like the similar item or prefer not to get it at all unless it's the same item? How picky are you? Honestly, it depends. If you scan my etsy, you will see there are a lot of trends, and things within those trends are okay. But just because I liked one knit hat doesn't mean I will like ALL the knit hats.   Will you be going out of town during the round, or is there any other time during the round when it would not be ideal for you to receive a package from your witch? I'll be around the whole time.   Would you like a bag of dried Honeycrisp apples? So much.   Would you like a zuni animal fetish? And if so, what animal? Yes! A turtle or a frog or an elephant. I'm drawn to turtles, but I also have frogs and elephants.   Would you like custom icons as a gift? Probably.
