I came home with some Dungeon Crawl and some Bedbugs yesterday. If you were my witchee, would you want some of either/both?
Yes! A millionty times over!!
Did you forget anything fun/interesting or find something new and exciting?
I think I have everything anyone could possibly want to know about me answered in this blog or on my questionnaire, really!
Would you like to receive international magazines, even if you don't speak the language it's written in, just to ogle the pictures or for the novelty of it? If yes, what kind of magazines, or what magazines in particular?
I'm not one for magazines. I don't like the idea of paper.
would you have interest in any of the new Christmas stuff from Lush?
No thanks, Lush isn't really my bag.
Oh, witchee-poo... if there was one bottle you could have from the NYCC exclusives, what would it be?
The Elephantine Colossus, or The White Lady of Durand-Eastman Park
If someone were to make you one of the items in this post which would it be?
If you were my witchee, would you mind a gift certificate where you'd have to do it old school style and mail it in with your order form?
That sounds awesome!!
Do you have a preferred weight of yarn to work in? Lace, sock, worsted, bulky, handspun with variation?
Anyone like little seasonal decorative wreaths? Like gravevine wreaths embellished with silk flora, etc.?
Do any witchees need a Snuggie?
I have a bathrobe, I can turn it backwards if I need to.
So, who here loves pomegranates? Are the good as a fruit, a flavoring or just a scent?
The fruit is awesome and I love it, flavouring is not so great, and as a scent I can have trouble pulling it off.
I LOVE HAUNT!!! I'm a sad panda that I couldn't get Batik, but I did get Seer, Gloaming and a Lavender Spice Tea Lip Lust!! (I've been craving that lip lust since LAST hallowe'en.)
Villainess has an update. Anyone wanting anything from it?
How are all the witchees fixed for purses--lunchbags, etc?
I love market bags, and giant purses, but lately I've been hankering for a beaded clutch.
Now, I have a question for you. About notes. Which are your favourite ones? Do you have a kind of "note top ten?" Anything that works particularly well on you? Do you have a perfume category (foody, floral, aquatic, musky) that you favour? And are there any notes you have never tried, but think would work well on you?
Top Ten Notes:
1.) Musk (all kinds usually)/Patchouli (it's a tie)
I usually do well with "orientals" or "musks" or usually "woods" too. Sugar can be problematic, I tend to make it go to maple syrup or caramel. Rose I usually turn to cat pee/ammonia, and jasmine amps to high heaven on me.
Would you like a sugar skull decorated by your witch? Or do you like sugar skull stuff in general?
I'm not really a fan of skulls.
Is there one scent that is your goto for comfort on a bad stressful day? Like the perfume equivilent of a security blankie?
Pumpkin IV 09, O, Sachs, Romanti.Goth, Joyful Moon
What are you going to be for Halloween?
Nadda. We're not celebrating this year.
Is there something just super random you like/enjoy/want/are ogling that has not been and will not be covered by any other questions, because it's just that WEIRD?
Hmmm... excellent question. No, I think I've summed everything up on wishlists etc.
If you could make a scent that represents where you live (or have lived), what would be the ingredients?
The time I spent at University in Guelph: Patchouli and incense (for the hippies), parchment and books (for the studying), clove cigarettes (for the time I spent with my goth friends), a hint of scotch (for the time I spent bartending)and a light musk.
Are you in need of Roller bottles or anything of the like?
Nope, good here too!!
Just curious, but if your witch was to make an amigurumi critter (or other plushie) just for you, what would it be?
Would you want a local/tourist item from your witch? Like a t-shirt, mug or shot glass?
Okay, who wants NAlloween and some Vampire Apothecary goodness?
NA doesn't agree with me.
I LOVE the Maleficient collection!
Who is your fav Disney Villian/villianess? How about hero/herione? (doesn't have to be specifically Disney though)
Loving Maleficient. She's ridiculously BAD!
Do you collect stones/rocks? I'm talking like "semi" precious stones, ie moonstone, bloodstone, quartz ect. Are there any that you're looking for at the moment? Are you in need of a stone but don't know which kind?
I love moonstone, it's one of my favourites. So is quartz. I'd be up for whatever my witch wanted to send, but I guess if we're talking about for a purpose, anything for a safe, healthy pregnancy?
Do you have a deviantart print wishlist or favourites list?
Is there anything from Blooddrop that you want to try? GC? Halloween update?
Nope, I'm good here too!
What kind of shoes do you need/want? What size shoes do you wear? Would you mind gently used shoes?
I'm set for shoes thanks!
Do you like paper dolls (new or vintage) or coloring in books?
Sure, that sounds awesome!!
Do you like weird scary things as traditionally girly fashion items like heels and handbags?
What song is on heavy rotation for you right now?
I posted links in the thread but Angie Nussey's The Badminton Song and Sex Bob-omb's Garbage Truck.
Are you coveting any of the NYCC atmospheric sprays?
The British Blondes!!!!!
If you could get any one thing hand-painted from your witch, what would it be and what would be on it?
Honestly? I would LOVE anything hand-painted from my witch!
Would you (assumin' you're a yarnie) be interested in a naturally-dyed yarn that's designed to very gradually fade with washing?
Not a yarnie.
If you have played before, what are some of the most memorable things you've gotten? What really made you go WOW? If you haven't played, same thing, but not limited to SW.
Lessee, I got an AMAZING scarf from Babyduo from the first round. I wear that thing ALL. THE. TIME. It's a stunning shade of green and black. I love it.
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 do like garlic. Love it actually. My friends have actually referred to me as a garlic whore. But I've been having some trouble with it lately.
Can I talk to you about the living dead? How do you feel about Zombies?
I am scared shitless of zombies. Terrified even. Zombie Apocalypse is possibly the most frightening end I can think of. I can't watch zombie movies, or even tv shows. It's kind of ridiculous really. But I have to sleep on the side of the bed farthest from the door. In case a zombie breaks in.
I'm not joking.
If you happened to be my Witchee, is there something you'd like from the Arcana Halloween update?
I'm not really into Arcana, but if there's something you think I'd like, go for it!
How many bottles of BPAL do you have?
More than 50 but less than 100.
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?
Anyone else into Emily Autumn?
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.
See the thread for my answer.
do you like Girl Scout cookies? What kind?
Sure! Thin Mints are awesome.
What's your take on homemade apple butter? Want some?
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 "urban fantasy": Seanan McGuire, Kim Harrison, Charlaine Harris, Laurell K. Hamilton (although not so much her most recent books).
Soaps : do you like them? What brands? What scents? Anything you're dying to try?
Paintbox Soapworks FTW!!! I has a wishlist.
Who likes hair toys, and if so what kind?
Elastics, clips and barrettes are aways welcome.
Does any art we may send need to be child safe, either in the actually safe sense or the non X rated sense?
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?
Love all of this! 1/2 gloves and neckwarmers especially!
How do you feel about altered/recycled/upcycled items of clothing or accessories?
Is there anything you want from the Violette Market update?
What is your favourite habitat and climate to live in? How about to visit? (ie. forest, canyons, mountains, by the beach; temperate, tropical...)
I love old towns, places with history. I love to be able to feel how old a place is, and be blown away by it. This also goes for beaches, forests, mountains etc.
What do you wish you could make/craft if you had the know-how and supplies? Specifically, which particular items?
N/A. I do NOT have the patience to craft.
Is there anything you would like from Conjure Oils general catalogue or the new updates that isn't already on your wishlist?
I'm not really a fan of CO.
Am I alone in this, or is there a Book Fair/Comic Con scent you're dying to get your paws on, too?
Like everyone and their sister, I am DYING to try Sibyl. From NYCC: Elephantine Colossus, The White Lady of Durand Eastman Park and Mount Misery and Sweet Hollow Roads.
Anyone need address/phone type books?
Nope, I'm set here!
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??
Not really, although Supernatural Season 3 would be awesome if my witch could find it used.
Is there anything from the Possets' Hallowe'en update you're lusting after?
WRAITH!!! Also, 301, Gypsy Grave, Hallowe'en, and Naked Lady
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?)
Do you like the candy apple, candy corn or pumpkin spice kisses?
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 love all kinds of scarves!!! I'd love whatever my witch wanted to knit!!
Don't like scarves? Would a rectangular shawl or triangular shawl be more to your taste?
I love shawls too! And cowls!!!!!!
How do you feel about recipes?
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?
Delivery all the way!
If I send you something home made would you like the reciepe for it?
If you are someone who doesn't want baked goods sent, would you like a collection of some of my favorite recipes?
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?
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 like all kinds of tea! My favourites are vanilla and chais.
How do you feek about silly, funny knick-knack, dollar store stuff, stickers, magnets etc? Would you like receiving that kind of stuff or rather not?
Is there a specific book you've been wanting to get but haven't found the time or the opportunity to?
Come, Thou Tortoise
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?
Not really, no.
Are you open to receiving things that are not on your wishlist, maybe something your Witch thinks you might like?
Yes!!! I would love for my Witch to send something that s/he thinks I may like!
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?
OK, I know that lots of folks love socks. Do you have a preference of length? Materials? Patterns?
I like anklets, OTK, Knee Highs, and Fuzzy!!!!
How do people feel about word magnets
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?
River's blue dress in the fight scene in the bar in Serenity.
How do you feel about samples/decants of things other than BPAL? Soap slices, lotion/scrub/shower gel decants, single use make-up/beauty products, etc.
What are you guys going to be aiming for in the Inquisition? Or do you just plan on ordering individual items?
I want Tricksy Bath Oil soooooo bad!
Chocolate or other types of candy?
I love dark chocolate, fleur de sel caramels, and any combination of salty & sweet.
For tea drinkers, do you prefer loose leaf or tea bags?
I like both!!
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 feel 10 scarfs are excessive. I'm of the "never enough scarves" persuasion. Scarves, and shawls are absolutely awesome!
Is there a TV, movie or literary character that you are a lot alike, or would like to be alike?
I wanna grow up and be like Pam from True Blood.
Is there anything you need for your kitchen, ie measuring cups, spoons, grater, ect?
I'm set kitchen-wise!
Music, DO you prefer Live or Studio? Edited or explicit?
I prefer Studio unless I was at the live show in question, and I'm not one for censoring music.
If you are an animal lover, is there a specific type/breed that you love most?
I'm an animal lover in general, but I'm not overly enamoured with any particular breed/species.
Also flowers and plants- If you like flowers/plants, do you have a favorite(s)?
Orchids and chrysanthemums hold a special place for me.
Do you have a favorite quotation? Song lyric? Book passage? WhateverthehecktheycalltheanonymousregionalwisdomthingiePROVERB! that word.
"None of us is okay, and all of us are fine." I love it. In context, it's referring to the fact that it's fine to be not okay. It's alright to be a little groundless. Embrace it, don't fight against it.
"All reasonably intelligent people should be cremated for the safety of the general public." EDIT: The Amazing Screw-On Head!!!! That's where it's from. If you haven't seen this. Just doooo eeet!
"Keep your sticky to yourself kids." Just plain good advice.
"It made my eyelids taste like sparkle." This just makes me crack up every time I read it.
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)
Noir. Yes you can laugh at that. Also, really any of the impossibles on my wishlist.
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.)
This does not apply to moi!
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 LOVE macros! Fanfic doesn't really interest me, but everything else, sure!
What would your last meal be if it could be anything in the world (sky is the limit, drinks too, the whole shebang)
I have no idea. I think it would really depend on the day!
what interests you from the latest lab update?
The Dawn scents don't really interest me, rose can do funky things with my skin chemistry. But Pom's III through V are calling my name and I neglected to get decants of them when I signed up for my weenies!!
How do you feel about stationery, like nice pens or notepaper? And if you're in favor, do you prefer classic/contemporary or cutesy stuff?
I love stationary, but I tend to like the classic/contemporary rather than cutesy.
Would you like homemade preserves (e.g. marinated vegies, pickled onions, chilli jam?)
Not one for preserves.
If you've got stuff on your BPAL wishlist, would partial bottles be okay?
Partials would rock my socks!
Would you like something you have to make yourself?
Honestly? Not particularly. I'm kind of the anti-craft. And I'm lazy. And short of patience.
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?
I would LOVE it! Just because I'm not craftily-inclined doesn't mean I can't appreciate the talent in others!!
Who is your favorite soap etailer?
TARTY!!!! PaintboxSoapworks FTW!
What about vintage decoration items, teacups, etc etc?
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?
Whatever my witch wants!!
What kind of make-up do you wear? What colors? Is there anything you'd like to try but haven't yet?
I tend to wear mascara and lip balm/gloss/stains. And eyeliner if I'm going out. I like berry colours for my lips, and I usually do neutrals on the eyes, but greens and purples too.
Who would be on your top 5 (IE famous people you’d date/have relations with )
Hmmm.... Eric from Trueblood, Alcide from Trueblood, (do we see a pattern?? ) The Winchester Boys, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Do you crave many Ecards and contact or are you okay with little contact from your Witch?
I love getting Ecards and notes from my Witch. But she is already doing an AMAZING job with the contact. I feel completely loved.
Do you have a place where you list all the BPAL you have or have tried?
I have a list in my blog but it's not updated. I will update it tonight!!
Do you like maple sugar candy?
I must be the only Canadian who hates maple syrup and all things maple flavoured. I feel so unpatriotic.
What is your position on the chocolate & bacon flavor combination?
Although I love the combo of sweet and salty, for some reason the idea of chocolate and bacon together makes me giggy. (I realize this is a madeup word, and Witch, please know I tend to do that.. but for reference giggy = squick, grossed out, unsettled or uncomfortable.)
If you are a tea-drinker do you need a tea-cozie for your pot?
Go to your spice cabinet, what are the three most used spices?
Herbes de provence, cumin and italian seasoning
Microsoft or Apple?
Neither, I have no allegiences when it comes to technology.
Where was your last vacation? What did you like most?
We went on our honeymoon on a Mediterranean cruise. My favourite part was exploring the Greek Island of Santorini. We wandered around Fira for the afternoon, and walked up the donkey trail. It was the most amazing day. I had a real Greek Salad on a rooftop taverna. I think it was the best day I ever had (aside from my wedding day).
Would you appreciate receiving handwritten letters and/or postcards (anonymous or not)? How about sending them?
I'd love it!!!
Do you hate any food things with a passion??
Eggplant. Brussel Sprouts.
Would you be opposed to receiving a digital version (via email) of a magazine you like but don't subscribe to...you know, in the interest of saving a tree?
I'd love it!
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to go to last.fm immediately and create an account! Download the scrobbler! Link us to your account! If you reject this assignment, maybe just tell us what your mp3 player says you listen to a lot?
Kings of Leon, the Whip It soundtrack (courtesy of my amazing witch from the Valentine's Shotgun Round - SultryWolf), the Scott Pilgrim Soundtrack, Tori Amos.
Any countries you're interested in?
Sure! Greece, France, England.
Would you enjoy homemade bath products (bath salts, fizzies, etc.) and/or linen sprays? Esp. if scented with some of your favorite BPAL scents?
If you witch made you something and it didn't come out just right, would you still want it?
Of course!! I love handmade stuff, and if my Witch put thought into it for me, I'd love it.
Are you a foodie?
If we're talking perfume/scents? No absolutely not. I hate smelling like food. If we're talking actual food? Then YES! I LOVE FOOD! Husband and I go out at least twice a month to one of the many nice restaurants in town. However, I think my favourite meal has to be a Greek Salad with Fresh Bread and Olives and Cheese.
Any sports fans in the house? What's your favorite sport/team/player?
I'm pretty much the furthest thing from a sports fan. Husband is the same.
For holidays, do you decorate? Would you like decorative stuff, weenie or otherwise? If so, do you lean towards the elegant, the crafty/folksy, or the more, erm, campy?
I only decorate for Yule/Christmas. We tend towards the elegant in our house, and the colours are red and gold.
Do you like journals/notebooks/sketchbooks?
I have a rather large collection and couldn't really justify more!
Cake truffles? If YES! Cake/icing/chocolate type?
This kind of goes against my "no baked goods" thinking. But, if I were to try some, Red Velvet Cake is my favourite, probably with cream cheese icing.
are you interested in mini bottles(under 100ml for hand luggage) of bath and body products?
Vampire shows, literature, etc? Yay or nay?
YAY!! I love True Blood and (more embarrassingly) The Vampire Diaries (ok, I swear I started watching that show because I was intending on making fun of it. After 3 weeks I realized I was ACTUALLY watching it. I'm sad, I know.)
If you play console video games, what game systems do you have and what games would you love to have?
My husband works in the industry so we have Wii, PS3, Xbox and Xbox 360. We're pretty set on games.
How do you all feel about flowers and plants? Flower and plant seeds? Drawings of flowers or plants? Pressed flowers?
How do you feel about marzipan?

Joyful Moon!!!! Bruja, and.... Banshee Beat
Are there any international treats that you love and have a hard time finding?
Flower-flavoured pastilles/candies. I can't find them ANYWHERE! I love rose/violet/lavender candies.
Is there anything from the 'Ween BPTP update that you would like but haven't ordered for yourself?
TRICKY Bath Oil! OMG I am jonesing for this so hard.
If you are a crafter, would you like to receive supplies from your witch (beads, fabric, yarn/roving etc?)

Would you like a bag of dried Honeycrisp apples?
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 like jewel tones. Dark blues, reds, greens. Creams or whites also work!
Gift Certificate: physical or email?
Either/or. I'm pretty easy to please!
Favorite Yankee Candles? Or other brands scents?
Not so much of a candle fan. Please to be not trouting me.
would you like a zuni animal fetish? And if so, what animal?
And how does everyone feel about glow in the dark radishes?
Cute, but not for me. I'm not really a knick-knack kind of person.
What places to do you visit that you'd like a gift card to? Starbucks, Target, Wal-Mart, B&N, a favorite restaurant or clothing shop?
Sephora, Chapters, SOCK DREAMS!
Cake or Frosting?
Cake. But only if I'm the one baking.
What movie scared the bejeezus out of you as a child?

What would the name of your custom blend be? The description?

I don't read comics, but I'd be interested in starting. I liked the Sandman graphic novels.
All of em! Tea! Coffee!! Cider!!!!
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?
Much of the stuff on my etsy wishlist are examples of what I like. Some places (like Paintbox Soapworks) relist their stock, so you can usually find that item relisted if you check the shop. Overall, I'm pretty easy going. I'm probably going to love anything that comes my way.
Do you wear make up?
Usually lip balm and mascara. Lip stains and eyeliners are great too.
Disney movies, Yay or Nay, and favourites if you do like them?

Do you have A VCR, DVD Player or Blue Ray or a combo of the three?
DVD and Blu-Ray

how do you feel about mortars and pestles
I already have one!

Oh man. I have LOTS of guilty TV watchings!! True Blood, Supernatural, Glee, Weeds, Castle, Fringe, The Big C, it's almost embarassing how much TV I watch.
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?

Sigh.... Alexander Skarsgaard. Also, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ray Lamontagne, The Winchester Boys, the list goes on...

Booze. Do you drink it, would you like some
Nope, and nope thank you!
What is your favorite artist or art style? (including if you have links to favorite pictures/paintings/photographs)
I will edit this.
My parents are coming to visit!!
Middle of the road I'd guess. I like makeup and dresses. But it depends on what your definition of "girly" is.
No thanks, but I like chocolate with sea salt! My favourite cake is dark chocolate or red velvet. Carrot is pretty awesome too but no raisins please!
Gifts for other household members:
Sure! Husband is very into Star Wars stuff.
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?
Either way is fine with me!! Again, I'm pretty easy going.
social networking usernames, ie twitter, facebook, livejournal, ravelry, anything else:
would you like to receive Groupons or similar deals/gift certificates from your Witch?
I have no idea what a Groupon is.
How about tshirt/bottoms sizes?
