Questions for the Halloween round, 2011

Sign in to follow this  


What's on your list of formerly fun activities to reclaim, witches?? Photography, writing and reading poetry, and blogging.


As a Witchee, are you interested in clues to your Witch's identity? Sure.


Is anyone interested in participating in the sketchbook project 2012? Not me.

Would you still want the project if it was a craft fail???? Yep.


Do you need any winter wear, witchee? I'm not sure. I need trousers, and fashion advice. If you or someone who's good with these things could hold my hand through the process of decluttering the closet, I'd jump up and down in happiness.


I've read something about a Event Exclusive called Pumpkin Hard Candy (if someone knows the details, shout it out because I am still searching). Are you interested in this scent? How desperate are you for it? Pumpkin is among the notes of doom and pumpkin is a vegetable. Pumpkin candy is like asparagus candy.


Going back to the question about winter wear, are there any colors you would prefer not to have? Yellow and brown.


Do you like scary books? What's the best/scariest thing you've ever read? IO don't like scary books very much.


So I was at Uwajimaya the other day and saw Earl Grey Tea Chocolate and Cinnamon Chocolate. If you were my Witchee, would you be interested in trying something like that?

Tea and cocoa sounds nice; earl greay and chocolate doesn't sound so nice. But the general idea of trying chocolate in unusual combinations is good.


Are you interested in anything in the latest round of Lab auctions on eBay? I avoid Ebay!

What favorite song(s) would you think would translate into a cool or unique scent? I can only think of Suzanne Vega's Luka, but that would be kind of tasteless.


OK- Los Planetas' La Playa. The sea and chlorine on top of her suntan lotion and a whiff of the drugs and alcohol he's been taking.

Interested in anything from the Beaver Moon Lunacy update? lavender cheesecake sounds like my type of BPAL.


I sent you with $20 into a drugstore/Walmart (nothing too fancy/imported/expensive, just your average selection), and you are restricted only to the candy aisle. What would you blow it on? If there's a fair trade brand of chocolate I'm familiar with, that one. If not, own-brand Mercadona FTW.


What is your favorite kind of cookie? I prefer European-style biscuits.


How many boxes are you hoping for? More or less the usual... in other occasions the rule seemed to be one from an online shop, one from plotting and one reveal. It's not really important.


How do you feel about loose leaf tea in baggies? I mean, I have a TON of loose leaf, would it be okay if I send you samples in some zip lock baggies? Or is that something that would squick you out? No, that's perfectly fine.


How would you feel about getting a custom poster with your favorite quote on it and some cool graphics? I'm an architecture student and can print posters (provided I make them) at pretty much any size using Adobe Illustrator at a low price. Also if you would be interested in this, what quotes would you like? I'm all covered in wall decoration, thanks.


The best thing I ever ate...It's impossible to choose but I can't get the po'boy I ate three weeks ago out of my mind.


Mac using witchees, what computers do you use? What peripherals/accessories do you have and what would you LIKE to have? What do you use your computer for? I use as much free software as I can (Open Office, Firefox) on a Dell computer that my husband rescued after someone dropped a glass of sugary milky coffee on it (coffee, milk and sugar require different cleaning methods). When it dies it will be replaced by a macbook.


At work, I use the local flavour of Linux. I'm looking forward to having a lighter laptop so that I can bring it to work. I don't do anything special with it; nearly all I do, for work or pleasure, can be done online with the exception of Paint.net.


Are there any DIY / Crafty / Free / Budget items you'd love to get but haven't noted yet? (Or, maybe you'd just like to emphasize something you may have only noted in passing?) Fashion and decluttering advice and support.


Audiobooks: I'm interested, but I have never listened to one. All I ask for is that they are complete versions, I don't like the idea of abridged books.


Do you like liquorice? If so, hard or soft? Sweet or salt? Normally salted or so salt it pulls your face into a fishy shape? And which shapes do you like? I don't like it very much and I hate the salty varieties.


Are you musically inclined? Do you play an instrument or sing? If so, what? No, no, and no. I dance, though.


Does anyone else like collector Barbies? Not me.


Tell me about something you like, and why you like it. The cup I'm currently drinking tea from. It's not too big, fitting a little bit more than a glass and a little bit less than 250 ml. It's decorated with a collage design of squares, polkadots and tulips in blue and orange. The inside is white - I hate not being able to see the colour of tea. And I got it when I worked in the Aberdeen Annual Fund when I was the best caller of the night. We got little prizes like that all the time, and I wasn't a very productive caller. So it's a pretty and useful reminder of a job I was very proud of.


For those of you that like candles, do you like stuff from Yankee Candle? And if you had to choose, tarts or candles? I don't like things with very strong scents and in any case, I prefer candles to tarts.

Would you be interested in getting a custom necklace fromhere? They're pretty.

Is there a movie you want so badly that you don’t own now? Any Ghibli ones apart from Spirited Away, Totoro and Ponyo.

Is there a rare book you’ve always wanted? There are some books that you can't get me because they are not published in any language I understand. Att vara Elvis, 1977. Bara Elvis, 1979. Godispåsen, 1985. Skugg-gömman, 1988.

Hjärtat som ingen ville ha, 1989.

Tre trappor upp med hiss, 1991.

Eget rum, 1992.

Egna världar, 1994.

Annas blomma, 1997.


They are all by the Swedish writer Maria Gripe. They have never been published in Spanish and I'm not sure they are available in English. I could struggle to read them in French, German, or Portuguese.


Is there anything you want to buy yourself but have been too embarrassed (R rated or pg)? No.

Have you seen the Lush holiday update? Do you like the look of anything from there? Considering that I rarely take baths and that I don't like their soaps, Lush can do very little to take me back to them.


if you were my witchee, would you want some of my hot nuts my candied nuts my nuts covered in butter and brown sugar candied walnuts? Oh wow, yes, please.

Reveal? Please.


Would you be interested in the #occupywallstreet scent? Tpbacco often works bad on me, but I would love a sample.

Do Paintbox Soapworks' Goat's Milk Hand and Body Creams sound like something you'd like to try? Just by the name, probably yes.


You get a package in the mail containing 3 things you have really wanted more than anything else you've mentioned so far in this thread. (they are all reasonably priced of course! ~$20 or less apiece). What are they? Anything cute that benefits a charity or fair trade. Starter knitting materials - instructions to do something very easy, needles....

how do you feel about hemp? jewelry, soap, etc? no, thanks.

Is there a magazine that you DON'T read because you can't find it near you, but wish you could? I find magazines vaguely unsatisfying. Like junk food.

Describe your sense of humour. For all my life, I've been told I don't have one. Sense of humour is a zero-sum game in my family and apparently the men got all of it. I find I'm self-deprecating with the family, geeky with my husband, shocking with my students, and bubbly when I relax. I think of myself as a sombre person. Wow, that was a long answer.

Do you like reusable grocery bags? If so, do you like the kind that fold up (ie Chico Bags?) I always do my shopping with reusable bags, but it's handy to have a new one.


What is something people are always surprised to learn about you? My age (everyone assumes I'm younger). My geekiness. How alike my mother I am, if they know her.


Is anyone else afraid of or creepy out by dummies/puppets/Muppets/etc? Other things you're squicked/freaked by that's best left by the wayside? I really don't like porcelain dolls and similar realistic-looking dolls unless they are babies. Uncannny valley effect, I guess.


Are there any local museums/attractions you keep never getting around to going to? Not really.


Is there any kind of international candy you love or would like to try? There's nothing that I like, that is portable and non-perishable enough and that I remember right now.


What is something totally random (yes, that thing that just popped into your head) that hasn't been covered by any previous questions? The question "what is your favorite breakfast?".


If you were to go here and create your very own chocolate bar, what might it have in it? Orange blossom water. Fair trade chocolate. Organic cane sugar.


Would you be interested in regional jams, jellies, or other preserves? mm, yes!

Do you have any bedtime rituals? Is there any particular product you have to apply or a certain shirt you wear or an act you perform to get you in the "bedtime" mood? Nothing is essential.


Princess Bride? Yay or nay? Yay.


What's your favorite classic fairytale? The original Little Mermaid.


how do you feel about ethical animal fiber, i.e. wool and the like? an ideal to strive for. But then, I love silk, which makes me a hypocrite.

What about little wee creatures for your desk or mantel? NOthing whose only purpose is decorating, please.


Look down. What are you wearing, right now? A purple, sleeveless, hippie-looking cotton dress, of that sort of fabric that is supposed to stay wrinkled and unironed, with a sun on the front. And pink tennis shoes without laces.


Kerchiefs? No thanks.


It's the weekend, and you find yourself without a single chore or responsibility for a few hours. Right this very moment, what's the one thing you would do if you could do anything? Exactly what I'm doing now.

Is there anything you'd like from the Mütter Museum Store? probably not.


what's your favorite kind of pizza? I'm not the greatest fan.

who are your style/fashion icons? post pics if you want! The uniform project. Yes, I know. I'm boring.


If you're interested in a handmade pouch/cover for an item you have (phones, tablets, books, keys, kettles...), what would your ideal pouch/cover have? Design, material, additional functionality/features like pockets or lights or secret hidey-holes? I never use them. I'd love a geeky-looking pillbox.


Would you like a photo collage based around your interests/favorite colors/favorite themes? As I've said somewhere else, I have no more space for hanging things on the wall.



Colors! What are your favorite colors and what colors do you not like? Pictures and links, people! I own exactly two garments (threadless T-shirts) and no home decorations in yellow.


What is your favorite word? I like words and expressions that don't translate well, like merienda or comfort food.


What are the feelings on arm warmers? Color, style, texture, length? no, thanks.


Do you like tarts? no tealights? yes jar candles? yes votives? yes.


What's your favorite flavor? Sour, sweet, bitter, salty? Sweet. Umami. And I really like yeasty things like blue cheese.


Chutlhu: yay or nay? Nay.


Is there something that you wish you could do, but you keep putting it off? See my 101 project.

Put your current mp3player (I am the anti-apple, so no ipod :lol:), winamp playlist, what have you, on shuffle, list the first 10 songs:


Do you have any interest in rocks? Not like, polished colorful stones.. but like... rocks. With geologic significance! No, thanks. Wow, BPAL people do have a very wide range of interests.

If your witch were to knit you a scarf/shawl/cowl, which would you prefer, and what features would you want? Would you prefer something light and drape-y or thick and warm? What kind of colors would you prefer? Do you have any fiber allergies or preferences? Non-itchy, please. Anything of this sort that I get will end up eventually on my hair, so if it's warm I'd like to wear it (occasionally) wrapped all around my head like some hijab styles (so it would have to be quite wide), and if it's very fine I'd wear it like a hair band. The problem is when they are somewhere in the middle. So in one word: if you're knitting, please make it wide.


Do you like/own/wear/want fairy wings or something of the like? No thanks.


What's your favorite horror movie? I don't like horror.


If your witch was the practical type and wanted to include one or more of your everyday essentials, what would those include? I'm talking about the bath products, lotions, face lotions, teas, food, etc that you really use every day.

Let's see. A basic, not harsh, soap-looking face cleanser. English Breakfast tea or a similar style. Good nail files. make up brushes and eyeshadow applicators. Something to feed extremely dry hair. Anything lavender-scented. Yep, that's my day.


Jane Austen .. Yay or Nay? yay. Team Austen. Absolutely.


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? Do you have one in mind, or a topic in mind? I like caligraphy. Something inspirational-but-a-bit-humorous about teaching would be nice.


Do you like period or period-styled paraphernalia? Stuff like postcards, notecards, jewelry, office supplies, what-have-you? Probably.


If you like manga, comics, and/or graphic novels, what is it about them that you like, in general? The story, the art/style, etc? Primarily, the plots.


if you could have a salon scent made, based on any artwork(s) what would it be? Something golden and happy by Klimt.


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.? At the moment I'm feeling too clumsy for that.

What's 'your' song/your theme song? In My Life.

What would be your superpower? To be in several places at once.


Witchee, would you like a gently used BPAL tshirt? I don't remember a design I liked enough.


Do you like homemade snack mixes? I know Puppy Chow was mentioned in a previous question, but what about healthier and more natural type snacks like granola or trail mix? You can put a lot of delicious and fun things into trail mix, yeah? If you say "Sure, I'd love some!" what kinds of things do you like/not like in those kinds of snacks, ie coconut flakes, raisins, certain nuts (allergies??), candy, etc. Give us your list of DO's and DON'Ts! Hmm... no candy, no sweeteners, just fruit-nut-cereal.


Do you like charm bracelets? No.


Would you like any ecotools makeup brushes? 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. You make them sound lovely, so why not?


Do you like Legos? Especially mini-fig key chains, Lego block keychains, small Lego sets, etc? I prefer Playmobil.


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. The Neil Gaimans on my list until I run out of the money.


Are there any characters that you love or identify with? I used to say Jane Eyre. Now I think more Mary Poppins.


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? The truth is that most of the beauty I create lately is food.... I don't know, I try a new recipe, and keep experimenting with personal touches until it's more like the idea that I have in my head.


Are there any Arcana Weenies that you MUST HAVE? Please don't make me go to their website. I'm enabled enough as it is. Surprise me if you want to ;)


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 like to use nailpolish but I'm very lazy about it. And I always end up having a dozen of aqua ones.


Dear witchee, how do you feel about lip balm? Favorite style (twist up tube, pot, tube with wand, etc.)? Favorite flavors? Flavors to avoid? Favorite brand? Do you need more right now or are you set? Are you one of those people who could never have enough lip balm even though you have a bowl on your dresser overflowing with them and 10 in your purse and an order for more on the way? I prefer lisptick and I don't like it to taste of anything.


-How do you feel about getting art supplies in general? (copic markers, watercolor, brushes, paint, sketchbooks etc.) No thanks.

-How do you feel about Threadless tshirts? I like the designs and I have a few. However, their girly/babydoll tees is currently done in a cut that looks horrible on me. They are too long.


If you were turned loose in a basic drug store (CVS, Walgreens - a pharmacy with attached mini-mart, basically!) with a $20 bill, what would you pick up? Nailpolish and christmas cards.


Darling Witchee, would you enjoy farmer's market pickled veggies (green beans, garlic, asparagus, etc) or fresh canned peaches or something of that nature? Yes, but they'd be too expensive to post, wouldn't they?


Do you prefer color or white photographs? Nature or abstract? Color. People.


would you be interested in something like this?

https://lostcrates.com/how-it-works I'm not sure. On the one hand, the surprise is fun. On the other, I'm starting to get really tired of the commodification of anything and everything.


Amigurumi, yes or no? Not sure.


If you could have an image painted for you - sky is the limit - what would it be? A Chinese or japanese landscape.


Name your 3 favorite scents for candles Natural beeswax (you know, the honey.coloured and honey-scented ones).


Name your 3 favorite types/flavors of tea. Darjeeling. Keemun. Flower-scented black tea. In all cases, loose leaf.


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 prefer them babydoll-style. I have a size M towards L. Anything designed or handmade by my witch has a value of its own.


How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc.... Pumpkin is a vegetable. The idea of pumpkin scented stuff is a bit like the idea of celery-scented stuff. I mean, I love to eat it but I'd rather keep it in the kitchen.

Has anyone else heard of or does anyone else love Glamourkin? Looks cute but I'm not a big fan of pendants. I have too many.


Computers and stuff: Not a big fan of any brand. My husband (woo, I can call him husband now) likes Linux and uses Mac when he's not working.


SOCK PREFERENCES? As close to 100% cotton as possible. Not very long. Black socks with a discreet touch of colour/silliness are an ideal.


Is there anyone here who likes toe socks? You know, those socks with a place for each toe?


Are you looking for a certain kind of DVDs to spruce up your collection right now? Hm. Classic BBC series, like for example adaptations of 19th century classics. Anything on my Amazon whislists.


Does anyone like postcards? Is anyone willing to be a Nacho witch for postcards? I would prefer Christmas or birthday cards to anything else.


Anyone going to see any good concerts this fall? I'd like to, but it's not planned.


Do you like Star Trek? Original TV series, films, spinoff series, etc? Favorite characters? I'm not a fan, but my husband is, and he has no merchandising at all; he has watched everything online. He likes the old films and the original series and he identifies a lot with the engineers.


Are you more prone to order out or cook at home? Would you be interested in cookbooks, kitchen utensils, and the like? If so, anything specific? I love to cook. There is no "too busy or tired to order food"; if I want someone else to cook for me, I'd rather go out, and if I'm really too tired or busy to cook I'll have soup or a salad.


There are cookbooks on my amazon wishlist and that can give you an idea of what I like. I'm Robin Robertson's biggest nonvegan fan.

How do you feel about maple syrup? I prefer honey but it's nce to have once in a while.


How do people feel about little pocket shrines, maybe something inspirational/motivational to keep in their purses/backpacks/whatever? That would fit perfectly into my little altar. Also, I have a collection of all-in-one-piece tiny Nativities.


Do you like Star Wars? Original Trilogy? Prequels? Spin-offs? Favorite characters? I like the original trilogy but I'm not a huge fan.


Do you like beef jerkey, I know some may be vegetarian, but where I live beef is a staple and beef jerky abounds. If so do you it really thin, hard and crunchy or thicker and softer. I would be curious to try it, why not.


Also do you like or racier ecards from time to time and do you need to be warned if something may be not safe to open at work. No, thanks. Not my thing.

Doctor Who? Yay or nay? I saw a bit of the old one some time in the late 80s and I'm curious.


Anyone love Buffy/Angel? Last year I downloaded all Buffy and watched it in one go. I loved it. I dislike the character of Angel but I want to see that series, and buy the Buffy DVDs because it's not fair to like a series so much and not pay for it.

How would you feel about gummies? Like, gummy bears? Gummy werewolves? Gummy vampires? no, thanks.


How would you feel about a totally original Gela-skin for your laptop/iPod/phone? Stickers? Decals? no thanks.


Since this is a Halloween round, what's your Creepy threshold? Are you a cartoon bats and smily pumpkins person or a skulls-and-bones the-dead-are-rising kind of person? Are your fairytales dark or Disney? The only Halloween related things I like are Nightmare Before Christmas and cooking with butternut squash because I prefer it to real pumpkin.


I like the old classic dark fairytales.


How do you all feel about Whoopie Pies? never had one.


Would you be interested in a handmade bookmark? sure.


Do you like real sugar skulls? Things with sugar skull designs? I don't like skull-shaped things, but I'm curious about real sugar skulls.

Who here adores meringue? Not me.


How about little bottles of booze? Ya wanna? What kind? No, thanks.


What are your views on fudge and brownies? (Also, if you live in a warm place, where the fudge might melt, that'd be helpful to know. Or, if you're diabetic and fudge is death, that'd be useful to know, too.) Fudge is toffee's poor cousin.


Also, what about mochi? Love it, hate it, baffled by it? I looooove it.


Anything from the BPTP update ya'll are liking? All the glosses sound amazing but I think they are way too expensive.


Does anyone like kimchi? Not interested.


Would you be interested in a sample box(from somewhere like Birchbox or loosebutton)? Sure, why not?


You have to place a Lab and Trading Post order. Right fuckin' now. No spending limits. What do you buy? All the hair glosses. All the Neil Gaiman stuff on my wishlist. And you didn't mention it – but a cartload of TALs.

Paintbox Soapworks - anything you're interested in, in general or from the latest update? I'll trust your taste.


Do you guys have any sports that you follow obsessively? How about favorite teams and/or athletes. I like sports that are somewhat related to dance: rhythmic gymnastics, artistic gymnastics, and synchronised swimming. But the judges are so often unfair, and the athletes are way too young and skinny in the case of gymnastics, that I've lost interest over the years. So the short answer is “not really”.


How do you feel about notebooks/journals/stationery? Anything you need or particularly like? I'm a teacher. What do you think?


Does confetti/glitter make you angry or fill you with glee? Noooooooo!!!!!!!!!!


How do you feel about stuffed animals/plushies/general soft, cuddly things? If you like them, what kind of animals would you be interested in? No, thanks.


how interested would you be on somewhat personalized bottle cap labels? This reminds me: those round little labels are hard to find so it would be nice to have some sheets.



How would you feel about kitchen towels and other similar household objects, if they are pretty or a souvenir? Yes please.

How did you dress up for your last party or compulsory-formal-dress occasion? I went to a friend's wedding in a Hoss Intropia dress that looked very 50s. Spaguetti straps, heart neckline, beige and printed with watercolor-like birdcages in many colours. Red wedges. A blue hippie crunched scarf as a shawl. Three fabric poppies on my hair instead of a fascinator.


Do you enjoy puzzles/riddles? (Cryptograms, Sudoku, Crossword, Jigsaw, etc) No.


Witchee, would you be interested in having a special tea cup/coffee mug/glass to drink out of? That would be lovely.

Would you like to receive e-books? And if so, in what format? No, thanks. On the other hand, audiobooks would be very much appreciated as long as they're not abridged.


If you have kids, would you be interested in getting things for them? And if so, what are they interested and what sizes are the wearing now? no kids.


Would you be interested in a felted handbag? Do any of these styles appeal to you? http://tinyurl.com/3o2epzl (there's at least one guy-friendly style, too!) I'm picky about handbags. They must close with a zip, the opening cannot be narrower than the bottom, and the strap has to be long enough to wear across the chest. I like them simple and square.


Are there are patterns, motifs, etc that you especially like? Nothing particular. I have to say, I'm really not interedted in anything Halloween-related unless it's Nightmare before Christmas.


If you're a tea drinker, is there any specific tea you would like to receive, not just the kind/flavor but also the type/packing--i.e., tea bags, loose tea, compressed, etc? It's easier to say the things I don't like: pu-erh. Rooibos. Those “tea flowers” that come as a ball and turn into a flower when covered in water. Compressed tea is a form of pu-erh. My stomach doesn't like ginger in tea, in most brands. Anything else in the entire world will make me very very very happy, but I prefer it loose.

And another question; anyone like anything in particular from Think Geek? The t-shirts with women in science. Anything XKCD.


What #1 actor, director, author and/or musician are you obsessed with? I'd try anything with Ayswarya Rai, Sharukh Khan or Gene Kelly on it. And Michael Winterbottom.


Are you interested in anything from the Villainness Bad Apples update? Just Right, and maybe twistappel.



What are your top three "I want to try them but I think I'll never get to try them" (or, "I've tried them and I want moar moar moar, but I don't think I'll ever get any") scents/bath oils/sprays? BPTP in general.


Is there a particular artist and piece that you would like a print of? If so, what is your max size that you could spare on your walls? I have too many unframed paintings.


If you are in to beauty and makeup related stuff, what kind of stuff do you like? What is your skintone and hair color? Are there any beauty products you've wanted to try but just never purchase? Anything would be nice. I like to wear make up but rarely make the time for it. I like stuff that smells nice whatever its function. My hair is almost black and I'm paler than the average Spaniard. I have been postponing buying nice eyeshadow that is discreet enough for work, but not brown.


Are there any CDs/Albums you've been wanting but haven't bought yet? What format do you prefer? (i.e. mp3, actual cd, record, etc) mp3 or CD are fine. I keep postponing getting anything by Adele.


Are you going away for any part of this round? Yes, mid-sept to early october.


Would you like to receive a mix-CD from your Witch? Sure, it would be lovely.


If your witch were going somewhere on a vacation during the round, would you want a little souvenir? That would be nice.


Do you work/study at a desk and enjoy interesting or cute office supplies? Yes and yes.


Witchee, are you a fan of musicals? If so, which ones? YES. I love musicals and I tend to care more about choreography than about the songs. I love Gene Kelly, Gershwin, and Bollywood most of all, but if it's a musical I will probably like it. I was disappointed by Sweeney Todd, though.


I am fond of the thrift. Do you mind lightly used goods? Please be specific! For instance, I'm a little squicked by used clothing, but I don't mind any other used goods (i.e. books, glassware, games, DVDs, whatever.) Anything but shoes, socks and of course underwear is fine. Books and home decoration are sometimes better than first-hand.


Do you have an Etsy shop? Do you know of any Etsy shops that are Switch Witch friendly?

I've tried to make one but I don't have the time or the motivation right now.


Would a gift or a postcard from Disneyland make you squee with delight or puke into your mail box? I'm not a big Disney fan and I hate anything Princessy.


what are your favorite types of Halloween candy? I'm not familiar with seasonal candy.


Do you prefer soap or shower gel? Please give examples of your favorite scents or brands.

Both, but I use bar soap more. I like them to have a strong scent. I like Villainess as long as it's not leathery or smoky. BPAL's galahad makes some good ones. I like them fresh, mostly. My shower normally has a sweet-smelling product (now: Posh Brats chocolate showergel), a fresh-smelling product (now: Arcana vampiresomething (vampire garden?????) that smells of tomato leaf and patchouli), and something lavendery (now: nothing? Really? Excuse me while I go to the shops for a minute).


How do you like your chocolate? For example with nuts, mint, peanut butter, caramel?

I think that in previous questionnaires I've said I'm a chocolate snob. I like it to be good quality, and I prefer dark to milk because that way I eat less and taste more. I like Green and Black's a lot, and I hate very greasy chocolate, like Belgian tends to be. I think that chocolate with non-cocoa vegetable fat should be banned and its inventors made to relive the eighth grade for all eternity.


Beads! Do you use them? Would you want some? What sorts of beads do you like?

I used to sell my own handmade jewelry at University. Now I only use beads for gifts or for myself. If you sent me jewelry supplies, I would probably like them and use them. I like stones, pretty glass like Murano glass, things like that. No plastic or painted glass.


Anyone here like caramels? Sea salted caramels?!?! I don't know if there's a difference between toffee and caramel. I love both. I've never tried sea-salted caramel.

Would you like a hand dyed or hand painted scarf or wrap or other item? If so, what colors/designs/fabrics do you like?

It sounds very nice. Just because I'm likely to combine it with a black dress, any shade of red, or green/blue, would be great. Definitely not brown. I'm not the biggest fan of “autumn colours”.


This was a question before, but does anyone here like stones? Just pretty polished stones for use in whatever purposes?

Not now, thanks.
