Thank you for the card my dear Witch, my rather gloomy day has been brightened!
Sorry for not getting you my questions sooner dear Witch. Here they are
Here are the answers to questions asked in the Switch Witch Thread!
Re: baked goods. I Looove them but I'm vegan for lent so depending on when they come, they would have to be vegan and soy free (allergies crrry). I do love all things cooked and related to cooking though!
I adore recipes. I collect cook books and websites and blogs and love them all. I think it would be SO COOL to have like a handwritten recipe collection from someone, like their favorite recipes or family recipes or something. I’ve always wanted one from my family, but alas . Either way, anything cooking is definitely a home run for me.
If you were to make an order RIGHT NOW. What would you order?
Hm, well, I’ve found the Lupers this year are actually all huge fail on me So from the lab… uh, well I need another bottle of Miskatonic University… I spilled mine otherwise I kind of lust after Sachs, so I’d definitely consider that as well. From the Trading Post, I’m dying to try Celeste perfume and bath salts, Kitty Perfume (french vanilla is huge win on me!), and Virginia Bath salts. I’ve never tried anything from the trading post, so I’d love to experience something fun.
What level of nudity are you fine with on items?
Pretty flexible on this. I prefer “tasteful” to, you know, distasteful.
Would you like other kinds of gently used items that may have come from a garage sale?
I love yard/garage sales, so I’m perfectly fine with them. I am however super paranoid about bedbugs (specifically D:!) so just make sure it is on the level that-a-way Also, I must say I prefer USEFUL things. I am not a “knick-knacks” person. I would love a box, a pretty piece of clothing, a small piece of art, etc.
Do you like cooking seasonings, like the kind you can get in ounce sizes? If so, things you'd love to try out?
I LOVE cooking seasonings. I have most of the basics, but I’d love to try some exotic or unusual spices or spice blends. I lust heartily after a lot of the fun things on the Arthur flour website http://www.kingarthu...et-ingredients/ as well as various sites that offer special rubs, seasoning blends, etc.
Do you like any particular kinds of green or black teas or coffees that could also be gotten in bulk?
I cannot drink caffeinated beverage (ACK I SHOULD HAVE PUT THIS IN THE QUESTIONNAIRE. So sorry Witch!!!) so I drink lots of herbal teas. No green tea, black tea or coffee for me.
Favorite snack foods (and can they be from bulk section as well?)
Snacks? Hmmm. I love white cheddar popcorn. I have no idea about bulk ‘n’ stuff though. I love to snack on almost anything Also, gummy things, like fruit slices, all things chocolate, chocolate covered macadamia nuts are a favorite of mine. I LOVE Jelly beans – jellybelly and starburst jelly beans are my favs, Ritersport is muh favorite chocolate, then Ferrero Rochet.
For my Witchee! Would you rather have HUGE list of things to try (as in my repressed imp orders) or just a highlight list?
Huge list please. Maybe I’ll have something on it that you’ll love!
I don’t mind mix CDs, but I don’t love them either. I rarely listen to CDs in general.
How do folks feel about little e-goodies? (articles online, pix, fic, etc)
This seems really neat. If my Witch is making it, it is an A++++. My favorite thing is if someone cares enough to spend some time regarding me. I definitely receive “love” through time .
Tim Tams? Yes or no? Chocolate Creme, Caramel, or Dark Chocolate?
Anything but Dark Chocolate. I can’t eat it until after Lent, but I think it’ll keep!
Is there any "classic" literature (Hemingway, Dickens, Elliot, Bronte, Hugo, Wilde, etc.) that you would like to add to your collection?
I already have most of the classics, so not really.
So how does everyone feel about receiving ebooks?
I don’t have a reader right now, but I’m not super opposed. Audiobooks (e-audiobooks) would be super cool… but they are really expensive
candles and/or aroma melts: yay or nay?
I can’t have open flame in my apartment, so Nay.
Get your music player, what are the first 13 songs on Random?
Will do this when I can!
Do you need another bpal box? If so what would your fantasy one look like?
I am running out of room for bottles and imps. I would love one with nature scenes, like a forest. My “happy” place is a forest with a stream running through it. Maybe with some flowers on the bank of the stream. It is where I go to when I need to pick up my spirits.
Do you have any blogs you regularly read?
-The Pioneer Woman Cooks (http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/)
-Smitten Kitchen (http://smittenkitchen.com)
-Dianasaur Dishes (http://dianasaurdishes.com)
-Budget Bytes (http://budgetbytes.blogspot.com/)
Surprise! the world has given you the day off. You hear that, no chores, responsibilities, or budget you have to follow. What would you do in those 24 hours?
Oh gosh. I may have to wait to answer this one. …I’ll come back to this!
Do you enjoy gardening? If so, what kind of stuff do you grow? Vegetables, flowers?
I love gardening, but as I am in an apartment, I do not right now. I would love to grow fresh herbs, some veggies and maybe a flower or two. I wish I had indoor stuff to do that with… I used to be quite the little herbalist.
Favorite artists or specific paintings?
Oh my. I’ll have to come back to this two. I don’t have any favorite artists/paintings, but I do like specific styles, and I’m kind of picky about it.
Booze? Yay or Nay? what kinds?
I like rums, cordials and flavored nummies. Also, I love wine. I am not a connoisseur but do like many types.
Steampunk inspired items? Yay or nay?
Steampunk is super cool, I can definitely appreciate how it looks!
Pirates vs Ninjas vs Zombies - who wins? Which do you love most?
Zombies. Zombies. And more Zombies. I love zombies. I usually dress up as a zombie for halloween, and I will probably be participating in “run for your lives” a 5k running from zombies! Then maybe Pirates. Probably not ninjas. Except maybe Askaninja.
Do you like those little crocheted amurigami? If so, who needs to be emulated as one?
I loooove these things. Sooo cute. I like animals a lot but if it had to be a person/thing I’d love my wow character (a belf, I could provide screenies if this was possible, or my goblin and my fiance’s undead or goblin. I doubt it is even possible though. But it’d be so cool!)
Do you like wearing things in your hair? If so, what kind (snap clips, scrunchie, headband, etc), how big & crazy (lowkey, bigger the better), and colors.
I can’t wear traditional headbands or clips as pulling my hair tight gives me tension headaches. I do love loose/cloth headbands in subtle colors, but I could use a little flavor in my life I guess. Little little clippies are nice too. But not my fav.
Piercings? - ears?? - elsewhere?
I have my ears pierced, once. And as long as the earrings have no nickle, I like studs/posts or french hooks maybe.
Chocolate. With stuff in it? Are you more a plain chocolate lover, a chocolate and normal items lover (normal items being nuts, fruit, caramel) or do you like weird stuff in your chocolate? (weird stuff being curry, chilis, balsamic vinegar, floraly things)
I love hazelnuts and almonds in my chocolate. I do not like fruit in it. I would like to try some “weird stuff”. I love caramel, Ommmg. I prefer milk or white chocolate, and rather dislike dark.
Minion Things I would want...
I don’t know who does what, but I have seen tons of little things people here have made and they are amazing! Having something that someone made just for me would make my little heart explode! I like all the minion things I’ve seen so far, But I am really fond of Carwoman’s stuff, and maybe Catseyes stuff… if it is nickle free?
Minion Alert! On that note, I am currently making vegan cooking, and if anyone wants it, I’d be happy to trade/oblige for free. I bake and might even do some vegan candy if I can muster it up. I make some AWESOME vegan chocolate cupcakes.
For those who like lipgloss, lipstick, tinted balms, etc, what colors do you wear (and warm? cool?) and do you prefer something sheer or more opaque? I prefer more sheer. I love lipgloss/balm a LOT. I love when it smells nummy and feels silky and good. I like subtle colors, or colorless. It must be NON STICKY. Makes me crazy.
What's your favorite animal? Or is there one that's particularly significant to you?
My favorite animal is the north american panther/ cougar or the ocelot or lynx. I’ve always identified with it. I like all cats, big and little. I love parrots! All things fuzzy and cute have a place for me. I also like snakes.
If you were able to get a vintage or prototype bottle from the upcoming West Coast Will Call, which one would you want?
Oh my! Anything foodie would be really nice. Other than that, I couldn’t say. Maybe Cake Smash as a pot dream… Paladin would be cool since I have one in WoW Elf? Or did that sell out. I’d love elf.
