Fall SW 2011 Help! Part the Second

Sign in to follow this  


Is there anything you'd like from the Mütter Museum Store? There is nothing that seriously jumps out at me, but I haven't looked thoroughly. Some of the keychain string monsters are cute!


I just noticed that Cocoa Pink has 5 ml Perfume Atomizers. Yay or nay? Scents you would like? Scents you would NOT like? No thanks. STOP ENABLING ME PEOPLE.


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 already said my ideal cover would be for my wireless keyboard. Something soft and protective would be best, in a fun/bold pattern. No weepy pastels for me!


Would you like a photo collage based around your interests/favorite colors/favorite themes? No thanks.


If you're crafty, are you interested in spoonfeather? And if so, what things there delight your eyes? I am not cool enough to know what this is.


Colors! What are your favorite colors and what colors do you not like? Pictures and links, people! I like bright, bold colors. I posted some photos from my apartment in the thread.


What is your favorite word? schedenfreude, for meaning. Sonorous of effluvium for sound.


What are the feelings on arm warmers? Color, style, texture, length? Sure - I like them to go from the middle of my palm and up past my elbow. Dark color, soft wool is best. Think gothic knits.


Do you like tarts? tealights? jar candles? votives? No tea lights please. I like soy candles in a jar best.


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


So, are there any online gaming witchees who covet purchasable in-game items or other gamer-y stuff? (yup, geek question) No thanks.


Anyone doing anything cool for Mabon (or the start of fall, if you aren't pagan? Sadly no.


What is your favorite coffee blend at Starbucks? If you don't have one, what is your favorite roast of coffee? My favorite coffee EVAR is Kenya AA roast.


Witchee, have you made (or are you planning to make) any Lab or Trading post orders soon? And if you did (or plan to), you should share what you're getting I ordered from BPTP. I got: both atmosphere sprays, Crypt King, and the Pumpkin Oatmeal Stout soap. I ordered from the lab. I got ... a lot. Blood Moon 2011, Le Revenant,The Golden Apple of the Sun, Halloween: Las Vegas, and The Glittering Apple of the Stars.


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.?

That would be lovely.


What's 'your' song/your theme song? Evolve, Ani Difranco.


What would be your superpower? teleportation, so I could go anywhere.


Witchee, would you like a gently used BPAL tshirt? No thanks.


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! Sure, I'd love some! My only "dont's" are raisins - I'm not a big raisin fan. I also prefer honey roasted peanuts to just plain salted ones. Otherwise, anything is good.


Do you like charm bracelets? If you had a bracelet, what sort of charms would you want on it? Favorite hobbies, symbols, whatever? No thanks on the charm bracelet. My mom started a charm bracelet "for me" when I was 5. She now has three or four bracelets filled with charms from places we've been. Someday that will be mine and that is plenty.


3 things for under $20 that I really, really want and maybe haven't mentioned....:

It's funny, because I've totally been thinking of things recently that I wanted to mention!


(1) A non-disposable coffee sleeve (I may have added a couple to my etsy wishlist a while back). The cafeteria at work is frequently out of them and then I feel guilty for double cupping. And/or good coffee to-go cup. The one I have now is too small and difficult to clean. Witch, if I purchase from Starbucks, I order either grande or sometimes venti. My current to-go cup is about the size of a tall. Okay, that's 2 things, but they're related, so I'm making them one. So there!


(2) Some new, cute, kitchen dishtowls as mine are so sad and raggedy. Preferably not in white.


(3) A soap dish for my bathroom that lets the water drain. My nice bars of soaps that I like for hand washing turn into a gloppy mess because they sit in water in my current soapdish.


So who else watched Babylon 5? My dad did, but not me.


If you had to decide what your stripper name was, what would it be? Depends on the algorithm, but mine would be Cat De La Cruz.


Sooooo Witchees, have you ever taken that particular personality test? If so, are you an Analytical, a Driver, an Expressive or an Amiable? Expressive


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?There is really nothing for me that fits this category. I am not easily made uncomfortable. Unless you're going to send, like, ... vomit in the mail? Something like that maybe.


what level of contact were you hoping for? Medium to close - witch, you are doing fine!


Witchee, would you like anything from this particular Haunt update? I bought all the things. For serious. But I'm always happy for backups, particularly in the glossing oils and scrubs! And I didn't get any of the whipped butters or perfume oils.


Who's interested in Halloween: Montreal? I've resisted a decant circle so far, but definitely interested!


how do you feel about hemp? jewelry, soap, etc? I have no particular feeling. Not so much into the jewelry just because it is not my style.


What's your favorite classic fairytale, witches Puss in boots.


say you stumbled into Camp Half Blood (or whatever the Roman camp ends up being named <bounces in anticipation>), which god claims you? I don't know what this means.


JONES SODA CO has LE soda packs for The Guild, Buffy, D&D, So Cute, etc. Would you be interested in these, Witchee? Hee, those are fun. I don't really need them though; I would drink the soda and recycle.


What about little wee creatures for your desk or mantel? I favorited some on etsy. Those as way cute!


how do you feel about ethical animal fiber, i.e. wool and the like? Yeah, I bought a sheepskin rug at IKEA, so....


Is it just me who is nervous at revealing herself to her witchee, and finding out who her witch is?! I was my first round, but now I'm not anymore. I know I love my witch and I'm sure my witchee will love me.


What kind of purse do you prefer? Leather, cloth? over the shoulder or crossbody, or something that can do either? Do you like bold bright prints with fun things, or monochrome, solid colours? I prefer solid colors and cross body strap, but I also like patterned clutches. I don't know, I just love purses. I've favorited a ton in my etsy favorites.


What kind of bear is best? A bear with CLAWS and FANGS.


Is anyone interested in reading The Night Circus? Added to my w/l.


Do you drink wine? yes please.


Hershey's Pumpkin Spice kisses? yes please.


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


I recently saw candy corn in non-candy corn flavors like CHOCOLATE and CARAMEL APPLE. It's not a fancy brand, I just saw it in the drugstore, but who here would like something like that? Hmm, maybe not. Candy corn is hit and miss for me.


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


Kerchiefs? I don't wear them.


I have a not-so-secret love for The Broship of the Rings. Are there any prints from her store you'd like? I don't know what this is and I fear looking it up.


Who here likes Stephanie Pui-Min Law's artwork? Not my thing (I had to look it up).


Is there anything you're wanting from LPMP? QUIT ENABLING ME.


Witches, did you lament NOT getting one of the condom case/imp cases that got released with the courtesan series??? Nope, not at all actually.


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?

Not really. I do tend to slather myself in some kind of smelly (glossing oil, lotion) before bed. But that is all.


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? Watch my DVR!


Are you interested in anything in the latest round of Lab auctions on eBay?



What favorite song(s) would you think would translate into a cool or unique scent?

Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. But I like snow scents. Some on yules!


Anyone interested in VApothecary's Halloween update?



Interested in anything from the Beaver Moon Lunacy update?

I ordered a decant of the scent with wax in it, but otherwise.... not really. Lots of clunker notes for me. It's all for the best.


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?

chocolate in all forms - chocolate kisses, chocolate MnMs, ... or, and some bright crawlers. I can't help it, I love them. I'm, like, 12 years old.

What is your favorite kind of cookie?

White Chocolate macadamia nut.


How many boxes are you hoping for?

as many as my witch wants to send! I have no hopes for things like that.


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?

I'm not a big tea person, but if you have something you think I'd like, that's fine. It does not bother me. Actually, Truelove sent me the most awesome tea that she gets locally in the coffee swap that I LOVED. Just the right blend of herbs. Maybe it's not that I don't like tea, but that I'm not drinking the right tea (ponders).

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?

Sure, that would be fun. Check my quote journal: username la_boheme_ @ livejournal


Is there anything you would want from NYCC, something you'd like your witch to ask me to pick up?

I'm in NYCC, so that's not necessary.

The best thing I ever ate...:This is a TIE. My BF and I are quasi-foodies (We are not obsessed with food and will happily eat whatever, but both of us enjoy the fine dining experience). Best thing #1 is the rabbit ravioli from Alize in Las Vegas. But it's been several years since I had it, and the memory is fading. Best thing #2 (which I have eating twice in the last four months) is the truffled polenta at Scarpetta in NYC (Scott Conant's restaurant, for those Food Network aficionados). BEST. DISH. EVER.


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? Not a hug fan, unless it's the usual red twizzlers. Sorry, I am boring that way.


Do you like listening to audiobooks? Would you like to receive one, and if you would, what sort of audiobook would you like--or is there a particular audiobook you've been meaning to get? No thank you.


Do you own a DSLR camera? Are you interested in a minky camera strap like these? What about anything from Photojojo?

I DO own a DSLR and I am happy for any camera accessories. If you check my various websites, you can probably get a good idea of what I already have.


Is anybody else into film photography? Interested in receiving film, supplies, etc from Lomography?

YES YES YES. Medium format in particular. But Lomography is quite expensive - there are much cheaper vendors. ANY medium format film is appreciated.


Does anyone else like collector Barbies?\

No thanks.


What small everyday items would you like, that you keep forgetting to get?

A large spatula, barbeque tongs, dish towels, soap dish



Not for me.

For those of you that like candles, do you like stuff from Yankee Candle? And if you had to choose, tarts or candles? I think I covered this, but I am not a Yankee Candle fan really.



Yes, please! I hope?


Would you be interested in the #occupywallstreet scent? I totally already bought this. :blush:


If you're the MMU type of Witchee, what Geek Chic Cosmetics tickle your fancy? No thanks.


Nocturne Alchemy's NAlloween Pt. 2 update is live here! (And for a few days, last month's update too.) What do you want? I'm still testing out their GC catalogue - not ready to branch into their LEs!


Have you seen the Lush holiday update? Do you like the look of anything from there? No thanks.


Is there anything you want to buy yourself but have been too embarrassed (R rated or pg)? Shame? What's that?


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?

Yum, nuts. Absolutely.


Is there a movie you want so badly that you don’t own now? It's not a movie, but I really want more Buffy and Angel seasons. I'm happy with used!
