SW Halloween '12

Because there are sooo many, I skip questions that don't interest me, I've answered elsewhere in my blog, or I've answered eleventy-billion times. (If it's still here, though, I plan to come back to it.)


Do you like s'mores and s'mores-flavored things? meh


What's the neatest freebie you've gotten? It can be cool or thoughtful or just totally unexpected, and not limited to BPALdom.


Would you enjoy receiving cute but useful items like colorful kitchen utensils/gadgets, or bento supplies? (boxes, chopsticks, accessories, etc?) What about things like spice mixes (homemade, or Penzey's for example)

Do you like cute, seasonal or fluffy PJ bottoms? Like they sell at Target, Old Navy (they have had cute Halloween ones!) If so, what size do you wear? Yup, XL. I like 'em big! Plus they always shrink.


I live near a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Penzeys! What does your little heart desire from any or all of these places?


I just gave you $20 and sent you into a "has everything" store ala Walmart and told you that you have to come out having spent it all, and none of it on anything you need. What would you buy? Be as specific as possible!


What kind of cuisines do you like? (I mentioned this in my ?aire but curious what my witch may like) And, what are your favorite restaurants?


I'm from Canada - is there anything specifically a witchee might like that is only available here?


what are your "fandoms" and would you like a t-shirt from TeeFury if an appropriate one came up?


Marzipan? almond-flavored candy stuff, right? I'd be all over that!


Would you be interested in washable/reusable muslin "paper" towels (basically muslin squares hemmed around the edge)? Maybe in some sort of box to put on your kitchen or bathroom counter? I'm very pro-green, so yes


Do you drink alcohol and if so, would you be OK with your witch sending you homemade infused vodka? yup


If you get me (or a fellow Aussie, if there are any playing this round) as a witch or witch's minion, would you like to try some Australian specialties, such as TimTams (delicious chocolately cookies), Caramello Koalas (koala shaped chocolates filled with gloopy caramel), Australian native spices or anything like that? not tim-tams, because we can get those here now, and I'm not huge on cookies anyway (other than shortbread), but the rest, oh yeah!


If your witch is a knitter, crocheter or sewer, is there a particular type of garment you would love to receive (hat, scarf, wrap, cowl, socks, fingerless gloves, arm warmers etc)? love fingerless gloves! socks never seem to fit right

Is there anyone else in your house (kids, pets, partner) that would really appreciate a small gift being included for them in the switchwitchy haul so they don't feel left out? DH always seems to look a little mournful that he doesn't get anything, but hey, he won't even wear BPAL so my sympathy is pretty limited


Since it's been mentioned several times, and I've also offered to nacho witch some, would you you like to receive wild rice and or maple syrup? I promise to include recipe ideas with the wild rice. I'm from Minnesota. Nuff said?


I have 5 bushels of tomatoes sitting in the kitchen right now that are supposed to turn into red sauce tomorrow, so would anyone like a basic red sauce (spaghetti sauce) to make its way to them? If you could get it here. I think spoilage would be a problem though


Would you be interested in having a bat adopted in your name? I'd rather have a real one in my yard to eat skeeters, if you could make THAT happen


How would you feel about a taste of (insert witch location here) box? YES

Some of your favorite artists? Classic and modern? you mean music??


If you could have an image or certain subject painted for you on any type of "canvas" (on a box, on paper, on a canvas, and so on) - could you point your witch to some of these images?

Is there a GC scent that's been on your list for ages but keeps falling off the bottom of your order because of the LEs? I make a point of keeping backups of my GC faves; right now there are just the 3 LEs I'm looking for, mainly

I've been getting into indie nail polish brands recently. What's your favorite indie brand of nail polish? Or what's your favorite mainstream brand of nail polish? Or are you not big on polish? Not familiar with any indies. I like OPI a lot. Don't wear polish that much, but I like to have a selection

Stuffed things: yea or nay? nay


New Question: mix-in-a-jar? How to you feel about cookie or cake or soup mixes that come in jars and you just add, like, an egg or water or what have you? GREATEST idea ever!!!

Would you be interested in beer, wine, or other specialty beverages from your Witch's area? only a small amount, unless s/he did like the infused vodka thing?


Are there any crafts/skills you've wanted to learn but haven't gotten around to? And if so, would you be interested in supplies and tutorials? god, no, I'm the Anti-Craft


Who here would be happy to get a lil' sumthin sumthin from Adagio Teas? nope, if there's such a thing as expiring tea, I have a drawerful

Do you Ravelry? And if so, what's your handle over there? Would you be interested in gift patterns from your queue? it's more like I UNravel


I live near this very cool Retro store (retrodrygoods.com) (you can order online too) - are there things from it that would make you squee if your witch sent them? THIS place sounds extremely cool (haven't had a chance to do the clicky-dance, but oh, I willlll)


Who likes Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses? ick


What does your kitchen look like? Colors/style?


Witchee, what are your favorite quotes?


Put your iPod/MP3 player/what-have-you on random and list the first 10 songs it plays!


What's one random thing you really like and one random thing you really dislike?


Are there any herbs that you haven't been able to lay hands on that I could send you? There's an herbal shop I really like here in NYC called Flower Power (flowerpower.net) that has quite a wide selection.


If there are no "witchy" shops near you, is there anything I can pick up for you from Enchantments?


Hey Witchee! I want to send you a delivery. It could be cupcakes from a local bakery, it could be a singing hugging bear-a-gram, it could be a bouquet of flowers. But it will be something that you need to be there to receive.

a) Are you OK with "special deliveries"? *waggles eyebrows* Um, yes?

B..) Is the address in your questionnaire the best place to reach you for said deliveries? yes

c) If the delivery requires a phone number (as say, some florists do) would you be OK with that information being tracked down by your Witch or asked of you anonymously? sure


What are some things you are OK with receiving gently used or homemade, and some things you absolutely do not want if they are gently used or homemade?


I live near a Mast General Store (mastgeneralstore.com). It has lots of vintage-y toys, southern foods (jams, jellies, spices) and vintage candy. Is there anything I can get for you? strawberry butter!!!


I have an extra room spray and 2 extra bath oils (one Cephalopod, one Exhibit Hall Fatigue) from Dragon*Con - would anybody like a decant?

Witchee, would you like it if I made you a "mix tape" of songs that I think you might like? And if so, would you prefer mp3 or CD format? in theory yes, but I never seem to play them


I know it is totally the wrong season (for most of us), but do you like/have space to garden? If so, what do you like to grow?


I'm about to be near a Lush store next week, is there anything you might like from there?


Songs that you keep meaning to buy but never get round to it?


Movies that you love but forgot to put in your questionaire?


Any favorite Bath & Body Works scents/products?


Haus of Gloi is offering custom perfumes - would you like one? What would your ideal blend be? nah


Any Bath, Body or nutritional type items you would love to try from a Natural and Organic food store (similar to Whole Foods) that you don't buy because they are a bit too pricey?


Witchee, will you be gone from your normal mailing address at any point during the round?


Are you a Disney fan or does even thinking about Disney make your head hurt? If you're into Disney, would you like something from the Happiest Place on Earth ;) ?


dear witchee, would you, could you use an electric candle warmer? prolly not

Do you lust after some new socks/tights? always :D


are there any of MeiLin's books (e-book or print) you'd be interested in?

Are you a gamer (of any sort - video, casual, tabletop) and are there any games you want? bigfishgames.com - I play a lot of their games

Would you be interested in BPTP CANDY? there's trading post candy????


Do you like coffee? If so, what kinds? Flavored, fancy, basic? Beans or ground? I'm a coffee ho'


Would a Starbucks gift card make you happy or do you prefer your local place? I don't hit Starbucks except when I'm going thru airports.... which is pretty often lately...


CUSTOM-Made Pottery?? yea or nay? coffee mugs, rustic or more elegant? a set of bowls? soap dish? bird feeder? something altogether different? and lastly, good colors for glazes...? bluuue! oh, blue what, you ask? A bird feeder might be cool. We've never had one. We have hungry hummingbirds among other things (cardinals, you name it)


Do you have a forum buddy? Someone who knows you and/or your tastes well enough to answer questions on your behalf? voodoocat? stellans, maybe...


If you are on Livejournal, would you appreciate LJ stuff like paid time, custom userheads, stuff like that? If you are NOT on LJ but are on other sites that have similar paid-for services (Flickr, for example?) would you, and what are those sites/etc?


A question, witchees: if you are into tarot, what is your favorite card?


And another question: would you like your own set of handmade rune stones or worry stones?


Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cider, or none of the above?


Gum, hard candy, soft candy, or none of the above?


Loose tea or tea bags? Do you need anything for your loose tea? (Filters, presses, etc.)


If you like tea, what kinds?


Do you do Goodreads or LibraryThing or a site like that? If so, can I see your to-read list, please?


Zombies; Yay or Nay?


If you have cats, do they like catnip toys? If you have doggies, would they like a super-reinforced canvas toy with a squeaker in it?


If you have kids, what are they into?


How do you feel about wearable knitted lace? Shawls, wraps, and the like?


Looking at the warehouse, I notice that our lovely Greenwoodtree is able to do chart readings and/or forecasts at a very reasonable rate. Is this something you would want?


I live in Japan. Anything you would be interested in from there?


Candy Corn: yes, no?


WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH YOUR ASS OFF!!! movies, comedians, black humor, your partner, a comic strip? what?


You are meeting up with someone on a casual lunch/early afternoon thing. This person is someone you want to impress/look good for (for whatever reason, not necessarily romantic, and not necessarily for business either). What would you look like, given the contents of your wardrobe/etc?


You are to be let loose in a clothing store of your choice, to pick a full outfit, down to the shoes, the accessories, etc. and things would be altered to fit you if needed. What store would that be, and what would you look like?


You open a box from the post office to reveal the 3 things you want most right now. What are they? (caveats: size doesn't matter, but they have to be tangible/buyable).


The end of this month I'm going to Scarefest, the big horror and paranormal con in Kentucky. (www.scarefest.com) If I were your witch, is there anything you would like from there (skull jewelry, art prints from an artist that catch your eye, etc), or anyone whose autograph or photo or such you would dig?


What is your holy grail "I'd kill to just have one drop in an imp" bpal scent?


Are there any existing Weenies that you have your eye on, but haven't gotten around to getting?


if you wear earrings, do you have pierced ears?


My new job is at a consignment store where we have all kinds of designer brands for very reasonable prices. Are there designer clothes/purses/sunglasses that you desire/love? (Give some indication as to your "style" as well. For example, do you like bohemian-style frocks in lavender? Crossbody purses in black? Sunglasses that are round and bug-like?)


I realize that we had a similar question in the ?aire, but I need you Witchee-s to list at least 5 items, each ranging $20 and under from Amazon.com or Walmart.com.


In the meantime, let me know what you like to do on the Internet to kill time. Flash games? What are your daily websites/blog visits, or favorite YouTube videos?


And what are your favourite characters from your fandoms?


My Little Pony... Cute or meh?
