Sorry I missed yesterday, here are the questions:

Saturday June 22/13


Put your mp3 player/online music/itunes/etc on random and list the next 10 songs here:


what is your favourite object, that you own, ignoring sentimental reasons for attachment? So I guess something you find beautiful, or fun, or incredibly useful.

Do you have any problems with swearing or particularly off-color humor?


What style is your sense of humour?


Opinions on table top games, from cards and board games, to dice and rpgs. What do you like? What don't you like? Favorites? Any classics you like? Do you collect any?


What would you like from the most recent BPAL update? What are you planning on buying for yourself and what would you like to try?


Is there a literary character you identify with? Even if it's not spot-on, just someone you found yourself having that "I identify with this" feeling?


What are the three books you most want to read right now, and which you don't already have?


Would you like something from Empire Edibles? (http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/EmpireEdibles?ref=top_trail)


Is there anything small you try to collect from everywhere you visit?


Witchee, I know that SW isn't about what you get... but could you name one thing you would be heartbroken not to get and one thing you would be a-ok if it didn't make it in your box? (i.e. do you REALLY want perfume oil of some sort, or would you be totally heartbroken if there was no Lush in your box, etc


Do you like tarot cards, pendulums and rune stones etc? If so, what type?


What fandoms do you belong to?


What cheers you up?


Who or where would you most want to haunt? Who would you least want to be haunted by?


What question do you hate to answer?


What is the best compliment you have/could receive?


Would you like anything from an European country? Any particular food or goodies, magazines, books, whatever would be available to your witch in his/her country.


Do you like bags? If so, what type (rucksack, clutch, shopping bag) colour and would you like/need a new one?


What's your favourite comfort food(snack or candy etc) and/or drink?


Would you be interested in someone writing out for you a favourite recipe, or finding or devising one which they think you'd like? If so, please provide your favourite ingredients, info on how you like to cook/store and use food, and any intolerances - unless all of these are in your questionnaire, or you don't like the idea. (I'm not saying I'd definitely do this, unless someone is keen, and it wouldn't be the only gift). I guess for other witches this might include something like a knitting pattern - not my thing but would you like that? Or indeed would you like a picture created for you (if so what kind) or a story written? (sorry if this feels a bit Spanish Inquisition!)


If you knew you were going to live comfortably for say 800 years, what profession, calling or project might you pursue with some of your extra years, which you imagine you may not do in the life that you have?


Is there any thing - an object, a donation on your behalf, some research done for you, whatever - that your witch could do about this that you would like? And if you can't think of a present, would you rather she/he (I!) didn't either and confined themselves to things you are already involved in?


What colors/style is your kitchen decor? And do you entertain in your home?


Are your ears pierced?


Do you like stuffies/stuffed animals/art doll type thingies? If so, any particular type you'd love to get?


Switch Witch is, of course, all about you.....but if your Witch was so inclined, are there wee little ones in your home that will get jealous and are just too young to understand why you won't share the love, who maybe need a touch of Witchee love all their own, to distract them while you hide all your lovelies?!?
