Favorite cartoons or animated films? I like Family Guy, Robot Chicken, Meet the Robinsons, TNBC, Beauty and the Beast, Lilo and Stitch.

Your take on the election? In other words, would you enjoy campaign related gifts, or prefer to stay neutral? I'm sick of politics.

Villians you sympathise with, or are interested in boinking? Villians I would like to bonk...hmm....I can't think of any really. I like the Joker and Harley Quinn. I'm a big fan of Poison Ivy. We've got all of the Joker's Asylum comics though. I also really like the Mad Hatter, but I don't know if he's a Villain so much as an anti hero.

Your stance on the all important peanut butter issue: crunchy? creamy? allergic? chocolate? maple? go directly to nuttella, do not pass go? I love peanut butter, i don't care what kind. I really like nutella as well, but my hubby hates hazelnut so I have no excuse to buy it for myself.

Who here likes to read historical fiction? If you do, what eras/people/countries intrigue you the most? I do read historical fiction. i read a Harry Turtledove novel once and really enjoyed it. Other than that i read mostly Amanda Quick which is England in the era of balls and high society. I'm not sure what time period that would be really. But I'm up for anything really. I just like to read.


What sort of colors do you currently wear? Do you want to branch outside that? What would you like to try? I wear purples, greens, blues, and blacks/greys. I'll try anything. I like sparkly stuff.


About incense: do you like sticks or lose incense? Have you got one of those devices to burn lose incense over a bit of charcoal? All incense smells the same to me, so I don't really burn it.

What's everyone's favorite fairytale and what are your favorite versions of it? Hm...probably Alice in Wonderland. And i'm a big fan of American McGees Alice.

So how many imps/decants is officially 'you have gone overboard and your Witchee is going to expire from scent overload'? I have no idea.

Who needs a recipe box? All I have is cook books right now


ANYONE ELSE want a home-made cookbook? Yes please!


How does everyone feel about really green gifties? I was thinking of giving my witchee some of my handy-dandy "paper" towels (hand-sized, washable muslin squares--kinda like ultra-cheapo cloth napkins) in a kitchen-friendly decorative box, but I didn't want to seem preachy ("Stop using paper towels, you environment destroyer!"). Would y'all use something like that? I'd totally use something like that. I don't really like using paper towels to wipe up spills anyways.

What craft (or crafts) have you been wanting to try but have no idea where to start? I want to get into knitting, and i want to get back into counted cross stitch, because i have some patterns (and want to find more) by Jessica Galbreth)

Would you appreciate some tunes in future packages? And if so, do you care if you get any CDs or mp3s you might have all ready? Or would you be able to find a way to post a list of things you're (a) looking for, or ( b ) all ready have? I love tunes, so if you send me stuff I already have, no big.

Polish goodies! Who wants them? Baked goods, candies, kielbasa, pirogies, magazines, you name it?I'm not really into polish goodies.

What is your favorite? What tea would you love to try but haven't because of price or difficulty to get? I'm a really big fan of Lipton Vanilla Caramel Truffle tea triangles. I want to try loose tea, but i just haven't bought any because I don't have anything to make it with.

BPTP Room Sprays...your thoughts? I'd love to try Gooey Pillowcase and Samhain

Would you like to receive baked goods from your Witch? And if so, are there things you WOULDN'T like? Sure! Breads and cookies are always good. And it'll probably be shared with the hubby.


Your thoughts on the update? I don't want Blood Moon really, but I'm excited for the BPTP update. I want like, everything they updated with. I'm a sucker for foody scents, because they make me feel comfort and help with my depression.

How do you decide what to put in which package for your Witchee or how many packages to send? My first package was kind of random, my next two are going to be themed, but i'm not sure which one to send first. I want to end with a big package, but I think I'm going to have to add other stuff into my final package to make it complete. I haven't started buying anything yet, because i'm broke, but I already know what I want to send.

If you were my witchee, would you be terribly offended if I sent you a box containing project "experiments" or random miscellaneous pretty bits of brainstorming that I thought you might like/wear? No way! That sounds really awesome!

What do you think about the Nightmare Before Christmas? Love it. It's one of my favorite movies.
