EML298's 2016 Spring Fool Switch Witch Help Questionnaire Addenda



Do you like colouring?
I like the idea of coloring, but I am not sure I'd actually DO the coloring. Maybe I would?

Can you list your wishlists please?
Mine are linked in my sig. They are not up to date. I'll work on that. I have an Amazon w/l under my real name.

If you like Lush, are there any UK-only things you're desperate to get?
I don't know of anything currently. However, I do not keep up with the LUSH Kitchen over there. If they've ever released anything in the Blue Skies or French Kiss scents (or if they ever do), then I need that. I also recognize I'd probably know if they had. This is more of a pipe dream comment than one based in reality. (But WHY haven't they made a French Kiss perfume??? OR Blue Skies? ;) )

Crochet goodies yes or no? If yes, what kind of goodies?
I have seen some amazingly beautiful crocheted scarves, gloves, fingerless gloves, etc., that I would love! On the other hand, I have received (from my MIL) some more traditional/country-styled items that I am completely not compelled by. So, I guess I'd say YES - and assume it's likely the case that BPALista style is quite likely to coincide with my own. (Most of the pics I've seen of pieces I love are actually in the SW threads and on BPALista FB pages.)

Do you have any allergies to animals/smoke/food etc?
I don't have any actual medical allergies to these things. I say this because my doc told me people can't actually be allergic to cigarette/cigar smoke. So, whatever people CAN be to that stimulus, I am. (I *hate* it, and it makes my nose run/stuffs me up.)

Graphic novels:
I *want* to be into graphic novels. That said, I'm a huge Buffy fan, and have had a few of those waiting for me to read for a couple years, and they're yet to be cracked. This is an unclear answer only because I am unclear. The interest is there. It's the motivation that's questionable.

Nail Polish:
I go through phases where I keep my nails painted, and then don't do it for months. I recently purged the CND gel nail system/lamp/hoard I had due to nail damage (well, before my last move seven months ago). I have some new Zoyas, and am quite intrigued with the BPTP claw polishes, though I have yet to pick up any.

I say, yes, please! I am a huge fan. I have found that, although I purchase atmos, I just don't seem to use them. I am more of a candle or essential oil person. Otherwise, I think I use pretty much all the categories of Puddin's treats. Favorites have been Blueberry Peppermint bath oil, UGH massage oil, Patchouli Clove massage oil, Lick It! candle, but there are a ton of others I've enjoyed greatly.

Nail Wraps:
Probably not.

Teas/Spices/Spice Rubs/Specialty Ingredients from a local tea & spice shop?
Yum! No rubs for meat other than fish, please. I need to educate myself about decaffeinated teas. I like fruity ones, I think, but know very little about them. I think I've covered tea in either the questionnaire and/or a prior blog entry (those are still up if you want to see my prior answers!). I have equipment for loose tea and also love bags!

In Regards to loose/bagged tea:
I got ahead of myself! Both are good. For a bit there (possibly with the last SW answers), I was leaning more towards bags. I have since procured a Manatea infuser, so given how cute he is, I would enjoy loose tea. (We also found our other infuser while KMing our home.) Bags are great, too.

Speaking of spices - where's your spicy/heat threshold? (scale of 1 - 10 - 1 being nothing more than black pepper, 10 being ghost pepper+)
Hmmmm...I think I'd be a 5, but Mr. EML298 says I'd be a 3.5-4. To clarify, I enjoy spice, to include a typical "medium" salsa. That said, at some ethnic restaurants (i.e. truly ethnic and not bastardized American versions), I have to take mild because their version of medium blows my mouth out. Does that make sense? Clear as mud, probably.

Preferred book format? Physical, PDF, Kindle, etc?
Great question. Given our recent KMimg (KonMari - Marie Kondo's tidying process), I'm not extremely keen on more physical possessions I'd likely use once. However, this isn't written in stone. Anyway, digital is probably better for me. I have an iPad, which reads ePub, PDF, etc. I can also grab the Kindle app for kindle formatting. I suppose I prefer digital.

<pasted in questions for following days to be answered>

Would you be interested in any handmade critters? Stuffed animals, knit or crochet beasties, or anything remotely similar? If so, please give an example or five ;)
Sure! I like unicorns, octopus, elephants, BPTP-type beasties - are some called yip-yips?

Since this is the Spring Fools' round, is there anything that goes with the theme of April Fool's Day or spring that might be fun to add to your package? Flowers (seeds, real, or handmade) prank-related items, a court jester's cap? Feel free to be creative and crazy with this one!
I'm obsessed with learning more about air plants. I got some stuff to make a terrarium but have no little plants and am unsure how to go about getting them.

Pet owners - would you like any kind of toy or supply for your pet?

Geek paraphernalia! Almost everyone here has SOME sort of geek-love, whether it is Harry potter, Horror movies, graphic novels, science, etc. So would you be interested in any kind of items related to your geek-ish interests?
I saw a little Groot dancing Popko (or something) figurine once that I know is geek-ish, but I am not even a fan of that geekhood! I think I take things item by item!

Any yarn, plastic, metal, or fabric sensitivities?

would you like pretty stationery/note cards, etc, for writing snail mail?
I wish I thought I'd actually write snail mail, but I don't seem to do it. I'm trying to get myself to be more organized with a paper planner, so stickers for that are somewhat intriguing, as well as some cute decorated paperclips I've seen people use for that purpose.

If you could have any BPALs right now (GC, LE, HTF) what would they be? Give examples of at least a few of each category
I still haven't really updated the BPAL w/l in a while. I don't know that I need that much.

Any places you would like gift cards from?
Amazon, LUSH, Torrid, and Target are places I shop fairly frequently. I also really enjoy Starbucks.

Do you wear make-up? Any brands you like? Color preferences?
Occasionally - mostly Urban Decay, Too Faced, and some NYX.

Junk food and candy?
I like these things, unfortunately. ;)

Witchee, regarding your fave TV shows, would you be interested in the associated DVDs? Fan books?
Hmmm...probably not at this point.

Do you need any items for your kitchen (linens, gadgets, cooking supplies, etc.)?
I can't think of anything specific, but if my witch found something s/he thought I could use, I'm open to that!

Gardens/plants: I am dreaming of spring, dear witch: Do you like plants? Do you have any? Indoor potted plants? A balcony bed? A yard? Do you want/need anything?
Yes! Many are poisonous to cats, so I've had to edit. I'm now obsessed with getting into airplants that can be inside terrariums that my can cannot get into, thus removing the cat problem and allowing my love of plants to resume!

As of Thursday, March 3 8:30 PM

If I were to make you something based on one or more interests mentioned in your Q'aire/blog, would you prefer something you could wear, something that hangs on a wall, or something that sits on a shelf (or couch or wherever) ?
Hmmm - this is hard! I don't mean to be indecisive, but all of these sound nice! Maybe something on a wall, if I have to pick? But, I don't feel very strongly in any direction.

Are you in need of BPAL storage?
Not really, but when I see cool options, I always think I'd like them! So, I could incorporate them! BPAL is the one area of my life I'm continuing to feel comfortable with collecting.

Hi, witchee! Do you like candles? Incense? Wax melts?
Love candles, but not paraffin wax. So, I use soy, beeswax, other types of wax, etc. I love the ideas of incense and melts, but find that I don't use them too much.

BAGS! Do you like/want/need any kind of bags? Purses (big, small, medium), storage type bags, totes, re-usable grocery bags, make up or craft supply bags . . . anything? And if so, please give as much info as possible about type, color, use, fabric, etc
I don't really *need* any more bags, but I would enjoy small bags for things like cosmetics in my purse, etc. Other than not being a huge fan of leather, I'm pretty open to fabrics (and ignorant about types). In terms of colors, this would probably be consistent with all my regular color preferences.

Here's a question. I make handmade journals/albums/smashbooks/junk journals. Would you be interested in anything like that?
I tend to be a pretty digital person these days.

If you like Harry Potter stuff, what house do you belong in? If you like Game of Thrones, what family?
I do like HP, but haven't seen but the first movie. I don't know the answer to this question. I meant to get to GoT, but haven't yet.

What's your favorite animal/totem? Would you be interested in a small figurine of said animal from this etsy user?
Unicorn, elephant. Sure!

Anything exciting to you in PBSW's Spring Collection?
I haven't seen it, but I'm not opposed to my witch selecting something if s/he was so inclined.

Witchee, are you interested in this kind of music (it's one of my favorites)[Tartanic - uncivilized]?
I'm not very informed about this, but it is interesting.

Oh dead Witchee, how do you feel about Sakura Matsuri? Do you like Green Tea and Sakura flavored desserts/treats? Decorations or jewelry with a cherry blossom theme?
Not sure about this - maybe not a huge amount?

Hey, witchee! If I were to send you a garment, what size would I send?
I tend to be 24/3x in tops or 26/3-4x in pants.

3/4/16 Missed this question a few days ago:

What style of bag from here (if any) would you like? You can easily narrow down the choices on the side menu - but I only want to know the style, not the pattern! ;)
The clutch looks cute - seems like something I could use for cosmetics and small tools in my purse.

It's Hottie Friday, witches and witchees! :yum: Name a famous crush or five :D
Hmmm... Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds; Mitch Pileggi/Skinner on X Files; Alyssa Milano's character on Charmed; Spike from Angel/Buffy

Also - what are the last 5 songs that appeared on your random or shuffle music list
Harold Budd, Lisa Gerrard, Brian Eno, Robert Rich are constantly on shuffle here.
