Switch Witch Q&A - Fall 2011 Round #2

Sign in to follow this  


Pfft. Ran out of room at the other entry.


If you have a pet, could you please post a photo of it? I really need to see what your pet, if you have one, looks like.

My animal photo collection on Flickr. Right now I only have three dogs - Jake Blues, Miss Lela, and Howie. Most of the thumbnails below are linked back to their source (flickr) so you can go look at the rest if you want.


Jake & Lela:






Jake Blue's Dogster page

Jake wanting to play Switch Witch. Or Warlock.


Miss Lela:


Miss Lela's Dogster page. there is even has a video on Lela's page of Ella the foster pup trying to kick Miss Lela's butt. (Ella fails.)




Howie's Dogster Page


Do you like/own/wear/want fairy wings or something of the like? FAIRY wings?! ha! I have BAT WINGS!!! :lol: But I wouldn't be against more wings. Things to wear to Burning Man parties or whatnot if nothing else.


How do you feel about terrariums?

um? Not so excited. It would depend on the terrarium.


Identify with?

Willow to some extent. We're both huge geeks and I did spend most of my high school days playing with computers. And boys, also geeks. I had a boyfriend whose handle was "The Bronze" but of course that was YEARS before Buffy came out. :lol: Also sort of identify with Luna - people don't get me and I'm fairly dreamy and easily distracted when not on the computer.


What's your favorite horror movie?

Something dorky like Waxwork or April Fool's Day. Or Evil Dead!!


Sooo...Cthulhu: yay or nay?

YAY!!! My Cthulhu Evil Elixir water bottle is sitting right here next to me.



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'd love a cover for my ipad! I could use a skin (I like the ones that are on my amazon wishlist) but a case would be awesome too, maybe something knitted or crocheted and then felted? I love skull n crossbones, celtic knots, bats, whatever. purple... black.. A little pocket for my headphones would be awesome.



Colors! What are your favorite colors and what colors do you not like? Pictures and links, people!


What is your favorite word?

Too many choices.


What are the feelings on arm warmers? Color, style, texture, length?

Yes! But I really prefer long wrist warmers as opposed to arm warmers. So they have to go up over your hand and have a thumb. Kind of like fingerless gloves except totally without the fingers. Knitted, of course, cashmere would be the best but merino cashmere or merino silk is ok too! Length - no further than my elbow. Preferably shorter, maybe halfway down the arm.


Do you like tarts? tealights? jar candles? votives?

I like unscented tealights, love tarts and jar candles and votives and pillars and 3 wick pillars and and and and candles. yes. candles.


What's your favorite flavor? Sour, sweet, bitter, salty?

Sweet & salty!


So, are there any online gaming witchees who covet purchasable in-game items or other gamer-y stuff? (yup, geek question)

I still have a bunch of Ultima Online accounts but I don't play much anymore. So although there are things available to buy that I waaaaaaant, I also kind of don't want since I don't play much.


Anyone doing anything cool for Mabon (or the start of fall, if you aren't pagan?

I wish!! Wish I were going to the Michaelmasse feast at Camlann this year. :( It's October 1st, I still have time!! Maybe I can convince some friends to go. And the All Hallows Feast.... *whimper* Rose petal pudding!!


Is there anything you'd like from the Mütter Museum Store?

I heard someone mention skeleton magnets... I already have all of the BPAL that the museum carries.


I just noticed that Cocoa Pink has 5 ml Perfume Atomizers. Yay or nay? Scents you would like? Scents you would NOT like?

Sure. I haven't ever ordered from Cocoa Pink but I love vanilla type scents.


what's your favorite kind of pizza?

My favorite in the WORLD was Atlantic Street Pizza -- the spicy red sauce, fresh garlic, pepperoncinis, sun dried tomatoes, and pesto. Sometimes I'd mix it up with some kind of meat or artichoke hearts or olive or mushrooms or pineapple or whatever. Sadly the owner of Atlantic Street passed away (young!!) and it is no longer open. Next fav is Pagliaccis but they are so expensive that I rarely order from them. They have a wonder pear pizza in the fall (COMING UP!) and I had their fig pizza last week that was AMAZING. I love their salads too. And their gelatto. (THANKS, NOW I'M HUNGRY.)


who are your style/fashion icons? post pics if you want!


Are there any food items you're craving/aren't able to find around your area?

Cannon's Sweet Hots! The mild!


Is there anything you like or would like to try from Bath & Body Works?

I would love more wall flower refills and I use their pump hand soap (not the creme and not the foam, just the regular "Deep Cleansing" or the "Hand Washes".) OMG I just looked at their halloween section. Too cute! I love the purple frosted cupcake candle with the skull & crossbones. And many other things.


Wall flower Refill or scent-portable : Marshmallow fireside, Autumn, Spiced Cider, Autumn Apple, Fresh Balsam, Twilight Woods, Warm Vanilla Sugar, Frosted Cupcakes, Eucalyptus Mint, Lavender Vanilla, Jasmine Vanilla, Lavender, Orange Ginger, Vanilla Verbena, Exotic Coconut.


Deep Cleansing Soap: Coconut Lime Verbena, Warm Vanilla Sugar, Exotic Coconut, Black Raspberry Vanilla, Caramel Apple, Creamy Pumpkin, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin

Hand Washes: lavander, lemon zest, coconut, eucalyptus spearmint, jasmine vanilla, lavender vanilla, orange ginger, black currant vanilla


Pillow Mist: Lavender Vanilla or Eucalyptus Spearmint. Wish they still had their "honey" pillow mists.


Room Spray: Eucalyptus Spearmint



how do you feel about ethical animal fiber, i.e. wool and the like?

I prefer merino and ethically sourced cashmere. (My mom had cashmere goats!)


What about little wee creatures for your desk or mantel, like this?

Aww, so cute! I used to have the House of Mouse "Edward Scissorpaws" on my Etsy favs but he kept falling off. Look, he is back in stock! And while I would definitely love him and squeeze him and call him Edward... he might have to come live at work because home is a MESS.


Look down. What are you wearing, right now?

The usual TDU's (Twilight Dress Unit.) Black BDU's, a black cami, a black NMBC sweatshirt, and a purple velvet newsboy type hat. No shoes or socks.



No thanks. I have a few like that already (hand knitted of course) and I never wear them.


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?

Realistically? Sleep or read. Oh wait, that's what I did THIS weekend! If I could do *anything*, I would have energy and go traveling. Helicopter or small plane ride, horseback riding, a jaunt to universal studios or dizzyland (only to see the NMBC decor), up to Alaska for dinner...



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?

Tea and a book. And doggies snuggling at my feet. I generally have to turn on the fan for some white noise. I do usually apply a bedtime scent but I don't have a particular one that I HAVE to use unless I am having a really hard day, in which case I use something like TKO, Baku, White Light, Peace, etc. We won't speak of the hitachi, whomever mentioned that. :P


Are you interested in today's/any recent Tee Fury shirts?



Princess Bride? Yay or nay?

YAY! I have the book and probably 2 or 3 different copies of the DVD. I had it on laserdisc but sold it when I sold my LD player. All of my friends can recite it verbatim.




Is there any kind of international candy you love or would like to try?

Wine Gums!! (even if they are mostly corn syrup I would still like to try them.)


What is something totally random (yes, that thing that just popped into your head) that hasn't been covered by any previous questions?


Is there any cheesy/non-cheesy Canadian stuff you'd be interested in?

Sure! Maple sugar, maple syrup...


If you were to go here and create your very own chocolate bar, what might it have in it?

I am not really into that because I'd want to taste their chocolate first and make sure it was up to par. The chocolate itself is the most important part of the bar and no offense, but some place where you can "design your own" strikes me as a novelty type thing and I wouldn't think they would use as snobby a chocolate base as I'm used to. Plus I can get chocolate bars I really love locally.


Is there anything you're wanting from LPMP?

From what?


say you stumbled into Camp Half Blood (or whatever the Roman camp ends up being named <bounces in anticipation>), which god claims you?

I kind of like Poseidon because - hello, HIPPOCAMPUS!!! and Pegasus!! and dolphins!! Roman gods might be different.
