Switch Witch HALLOWEEEEEN 2017 part two



Part two!

would any witchees be interested in NASA swag? I'm now super-close to Marshall Space Flight Center and will be visiting the space center with my kiddo pretty regularly. If so, what would you like? Clothes, a mug, magnets, a plush Snoopy wearing a flight suit?
Usable stuff is always neat! Like a towel or a travel mug.
does anybody like anything from Solstice Scents? I LOVE their Jack and the Devil. http://www.solsticescents.com/
I've never tried any of their stuff! I would be very much interested in trying something. Gehenna looks especially intriguing (dragon's blood!).

Witchee, would you like anything from the Trading Post Halloween update? https://blackphoenix...y/weenies-2017/
Hair glosses! Absinthe-laced Candied Apple, Autumn Cider, I Foamed! I Raved! I Swore! And Pomegranate Clove bath oil. Also, any of the atmos sprays look interesting.

Awesome farmer's market by my house. They have a local honey stand (which also sells things made from local honey like Propolis tincture!); there's a small apothecary and she additionally makes soaps and hand-made, hand-poured scented candles; plus a guy that makes an array of BBQ and Hot Sauces. Does ny of this appeal? Would you like anything from my local farmer's market?
Sure! Just nothing spicy. And no candles. Wax tarts are okay, but I can't have open flames because my cats don't understand fire.

Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? https://smoldercosmetics.com
Lip stuff! Especially Bonbon, Desire, or Cincinnati.

Anything from Strobe Cosmetics (http://strobecosmetics.com)?
I think I'm set for eyeshadow right now!

How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff?
Very positively! Especially Badtz-Maru, Aggrestuko, or Little Twin Stars.

Would you like to get some favorite recipes?
Sure! Especially if they're things that you can make on Sunday and reheat or freeze to eat later. It's just going to be me eating it, so it has to store and reheat well!

Would you like anything from my shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/LisaNut?
I think I'll pass. The cowls are neat, but I already have one from you that I love!
Haus of Gloi?
Anything but bathing dust in Apple Milk, Blood Orange Marshmallow, Red Roan, Persephone's Descent. Any of the whipped soaps. Lip balm.

How do you feel about these little guys? I think they're adorable and kind of want them all, but especially the ghost and pirate ones. https://lovemomiji.c...imited-editions
They're adorable, but they're not really my style.

Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? Mitts, hat, shawls, unicorn... http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/
Mitts! Especially the owl mitts. Those would be awesome for my commute.

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?
Golden Champaca Attar, Sampaguita, Apple X.

What are some things you do NOT want to receive?
Candles! My cats are assholes who do not understand fire = DANGER. Also baked goods that need to be consumed within a few days. I'm *horrible* about this. Shelf-stable stuff or things that can go in the freezer are okay.

is there anything from here that you might be interested in getting a print (or pillow/make-up case/etc) of?
Ooh, The Reader, Hail to the Freaks, Starman, Spell of Ravensong, Danse Macabre. I'm not so sure about a print unless it was already framed (ask me about my to-frame print collection!), but on something like a pillow/makeup bag/tote bag/etc. would be lovely.
Claire's has some super cute Halloween stuff. In the style of Haunted Mansion - black lace collars, lace and sparkle masques and the like. A few items in Dias de los Muertos style. Would you be interested in such things?
The style, yes. Decorative items sturdy enough that they wouldn't get wrecked if dropped from a height of three feet (because cats!), sure. Wearable items like earrings, collars, masks, not so much.

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ If so, which products/scents/flavors?
Aw, man, some of the sold out lip balms (cherry ginger ale, Earl Grey Tea, blood orange) would have been awesome. Of the not-sold-out ones: Lemon creme, Meyer lemon cupcake, orange clove, strawberry lime margarita. Lemon creme body butter would be nice, too.

Weenies 2017! (Decants are perfect!)
All Souls
Apple Butter Rum
Cardamom Cream Pumpkin Cake
Cinnamon Chai Cupcake
Day of Skulls
Feeding the Dead
La Calavera Catrina
Sugar Skull
Pumpkin Spice Cathedral
Pumpkin Spice Harlot
Pumpkin Spice Opium Poppy
Pumpkin Spice Snake Oil
Bobbing for Apples
Pumpkin Spice Everything
Suspicion of Foul Play

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners?
I use a wall calendar at work, but it needs to be work-appropriate. I usually end up with a kaleidoscope calendar because those are completely noncontroversial.

If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES?
I don't really use stationery.
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads?
OH HELLO THIS IS MY WEAKNESS. I don't like paperclips with a thick coat of plastic, but if it's just colored metal, that would be awesome. I agonize for *ages* over which neat post-it pads I want to get because I love them all so much.

Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson
Holy bats, YES. A travel mug, tote bag, pillow, or carry-all bag would be amazing. Anything but the stripes. Also any of the stickers (except The Goat. He's not really calling to me) on a white background so they really pop against my journal cover. Any of the all-over print t-shirts in xxl. Lined notebook. Gah, the more I look at her stuff, the more I want!
Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/
Holy wow. I think I want everything.
Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, felted, chain maille, scale, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) dishclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything? Colors? (Duct tape, chain maille, and scales come in colors.)
All of the above! Except chain maille if we're talking jewelry. And I don't really wear enough hats to warrant getting another one. Colors: Green, purple, blue, hot pink.

Do you collect anything from SBUX like City Mugs, City Mug ornaments, City Cards, or Bearistas? If so, which do you need/want? Or would you like a City Mug or an ornament for fun?
I don't collect anything, but it would be nice to have a dishwasher-safe travel mug that fits in a car cupholder.

anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch.
Ooh, *yum*. It might just be because it's time for me to have dinner, but those all sound wonderful. I'm very pro-nuts-in-fudge.

do you like spicy foods? I am currently addicted to these suckers and want to send you some buffalo ridged kettle potato goodness (https://www.billygoa...shop/1lb-kicker)
Hard pass on anything spicy.

do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need?
I don't collect them, although if there is one with a black cat on it, I would love it. I collect black cat things!

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/
These are super pretty (especially Nostalgia)m but I'm super behind on getting prints I already own framed and hung!
Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?
Man, this is actually a hard question for me because I love animals. Just to name a few: Black cats, otters, seals, bears, sloths, Sasquatch. For starters.

would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!)
No, thank you.

Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)?
I would like decants! I want to support the Lab's Activism line, but I'm on the fence about wanting a full bottle of either of these.

Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment?
Pass on this.

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/
The Halloween foaming hand soaps! Especially Better Have My Candy, Ghoul Friend, or Vampire Blood.

I am possibly going to a crystal / gem show tomorrow. I can't afford expensive gem stones, but...
What kind of crystals would you like?
I'm not really into crystals.

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread?

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite?
Hmm... I love cookies. It might be easier to say I hate raisins and bananas, I don't like fruit with chocolate, and NOM NOM NOM COOKIE!

Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.)
This sounds like it would be really nice for winter leg cramps!

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?
I'll pass. I'm not really a drinker.

Want some honey from the bees on our property?

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
Ooh, blackberry is my favorite! Cherry might be good, too.

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero.
Hard pass on anything spicy.

I didn't dry any apples this year but I was thinking of heading over to Green Bluff and seeing if any honeycrisps are left. I have a commercial dehydrator so let me know if you are interested in any "Apple Crips" (as voodoocatwoman calls them!) I wash, peel, core, and slice before dehydrating.
I like apples (and I love Honeycrisps!), but I'm not really a fan of dehydrated apples unless they're the crunchy-like-a-potato-chip freeze-dried style.

Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight.
Or how about a couple of pillowcases?
I love bags! Something that would encourage me to pack a lunch for work would be especially neat. Pillowcases would be neat, too.

Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm
Ooh, yes! Those look delicious!

do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above?
No, unfortunately, I'm in a shower-only household.

What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these?
iPad mini, iPhone 7, 13" Macbook. I'll pass on things for the iPad and iPhone (I love the cases/covers I already have for them!), but something for my laptop would be cool.

See's Candy. My absolute favorite. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?? Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc?
See's was my family's Fancy Chocolate growing up! I love pretty much everything they make except chocolate with orange or berry flavors.

Are any witchees into coloring books?
Huh. I just realized I've never bothered even trying to dabble in coloring books as an adult. I would probably love them if I tried them!

Witchees, is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)?
Uhoh. This is the part where I get lost on a website for three days. I love this sort of thing. So pretty much everything? Especially the Nessie kitchen stuff.

If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household?
Just one! It's a one-human household.

Do you like Broadway shows/music? If so what are some of your favorites and/or ones that you hope to see or listen to eventually? Would you like merch from your favorite shows or CDs from shows you want to listen to?
My favorite musical is Avenue Q! Or maybe Hamilton. Or maybe Hedwig and the Angry Inch (is that Broadway?). I also listen to the soundtracks for The Book of Mormon and Chicago a lot. Scanning over the list of current Broadway plays, in an ideal world, I would go see 1984, Kinky Boots, and/or Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Or A Clockwork Orange, if off-Broadway was allowed. I would love merch from a show! I think I have cds of everything there are cds for already except Kinky Boots.

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there?
A NYCC shopping bag! One of those nice heavy-duty reusable ones. I'm a bring-my-own-bags-to-the-store shopper. I don't know if they have them, though. I would love to have a collection of those bags from different comic cons all over the country/world, so this answer would apply to all cons, but the only ones I definitely know that have them are Rose City and Emerald City. One of those con-exclusive Moleskines would be neat, too. As far as Lab/Post NYCC exclusives go, any of the hair glosses (but especially Honeyed Apple), the bath oil, Broadway, II, III, IV, VI, or VII. It all looks amazing!

I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there?
Sure! I love cons!

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)?
The healing oils, coffee cup warmer, pretty much any of the scarves/wraps or sling bags

Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items.
Pretty much all of my bath products and makeup come from indie shops, and that list is probably too long for this post!

Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get!
Wax tarts, incense, oven mitts/potholders (especially if they were fannish), and kitty toys (especially local catnip). And then I would double back for a second round through the show to see what else there is!

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com
I made a wishlist!

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to?
I haven't bought any Weenies from either the Lab or the Post in a few years! The past couple of Halloweens have sucked for me for various reasons, so I'm super excited to get back into things this year.

Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...)
I've noticed a lot of people make sure to state their level-of-horror/style-of-Halloween preferences, so I might as well mention: I like pretty much all styles of Halloween, and I'm a huge fan of horror of all types. Slow burn, goofy slapstick, full-tilt terror you name it. I have a very high threshold for scariness in horror, and I'm not a fan of jump scares and torture porn because I feel like those are shortcuts for very lazy storytellers, but there is not any such thing as too scary in my book.

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits.
Secret lair/workshop of a billionaire superhero. Or art nouveau bordello. One or the other.

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting?
I don't wear them, primarily because I don't have one! I would want one for cooking.

BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll)
I'll have to pass. This looks like it would immediately become a cat toy no matter how hard I tried to protect it from my monsters.
It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference?
I have chunky calves, so if we're talking socks from a place like Target, I go for ankle or crew socks. Sock Dreams has a great selection of plus-size socks, so I also love over-the-knees and knee-highs from those sections as well as Sock It to Me's Stretch-It line! Basically, I wear all lengths, depending on how stretchy they are. I'm not really particular about fiber, although if they're fuzzy slipper socks, I desperately need tread on them. I'm *really* klutzy!

Would you be open to previously-loved books?
Definitely. How else am I supposed to know if a book is good if someone else hasn't loved it first?

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
Absolutely awesome. Decants, too.

So what are your favorite fandoms?
I feel like I might have listed those on my questionnaire. If not, right now, those would probably be Mr. Robot, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter (it's my Halloween-through-Christmas tradition!), Westworld, Marvel movies/Netflix shows (my favorite from the Netflix shows: Jessica Jones), Supernatural (although I won't be watching the new season until it hits Netflix), and Gotham (IT IS A TRASHY FANFIC ACID TRIP, AND I HEART IT). And, of course, horror. It wouldn't be Halloween season without a horror movie a day.

I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so!
Lavender is lovely!

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both?
I'm interested in it, but I don't personally do it, mainly because I don't have a clue where to start. I own a few tarot decks (Rider-Waite, Alice in Wonderland, and gummy bears), but I have no idea how to use them. I would definitely be open to trying pretty much anything (book, tool, whatever) if you had a beginner's sort of thing in mind.

Would my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally?
That would be super cool.

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?
I can't think of any. I'm not particularly magickal. I'm not opposed to it. I have just never explored it.

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?
Pass. I can't use bar soap.

Favorite gemstones?
Amethyst! I'm supposed to like garnet since I'm a January baby, and it's okay, but I'm also an Aquarian, and amethyst has my heart. (Amethyst and green garnet make a great combination, though, because I love purple and green together!)

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky?
No jewelry, please.

Any love of pirates or SCA?
I love pirates! I just realized that my answer to the next question might be interpreted as being related to this. It's actually not.

Is there anything you would like from Disney World?
Something Pirates of the Caribbean (I have a personal family story behind this one) or Haunted Mansion!

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong?
A bit! I have all of the movies (except Fantastic Beasts, which I don't care about as much as I care about the original series) and watch them leading up to Christmas every year. Ravenclaw to the core. Except that one weird time that I took a Game of Thrones/Hogwarts hybrid quiz and got Hufflepuff for some strange reason. I retook it and got Ravenclaw!

How do you feel about chokers?
Pass. I don't wear jewelry, and on the very rare occasions when I do, it's long dangly necklaces.

Here's a few questions from me: Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type?
Those are really cute! But banners in general are not really my style.

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year?
Trader Joe's is my main grocery store! I'm not a pumpkin fan, though. I think the only pumpkin thing I like is their pumpkin spice rooibos tea.

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
Not much of a cook. I can always use more spatulas or spoons/slotted spoons for cooking things like soups and pasta sauces since I do like to make big batches of various things to stock my freezer with single servings that I can just microwave for quick meals. I do like to do bento boxes, but i haven't done those for years because I moved and tossed all of my supplies, and I haven't bought new stuff beyond one bento box I keep forgetting I own.

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related??
Something pirate-y? I'm not really a beach person.

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.
Beyond something that could be used year-round, I don't really know. And by "used year-round," I just mean something that will hold up to regular use, like a houseware, versus something intended to be used/consumed just this year and then tossed. Halloween isn't just for October!

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
Funny you should ask that. I would actually love some.

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like?
I think I answered this in my questionnaire, but if not: I have (or do they have me? It could go either way) six-year-old indoor kitties. One is a seventeen-pound hunk of British blue-looking burning love named Oscar, and the other is a much smaller clearly-from-a-feral-bloodline ball of cuddly skittishness name Edgar. They like crunchy treats (and they're not picky about type or flavor beyond "crunchy") but seem to be very oddly scared of soft treats. Their favorite toys are dangly things like Cat Dancers, and they like strong locally-grown catnip for they are Portland stoners (I think the stuff you can get in places like Target sits on the shelves for a long time and loses its potency).

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
Potion n. 113, Blood Bond, Boogieman, Number 29.

Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things)
Decants for oils/sprays are awesome!

  • Fatherhood: My Little Themysciran Princess, Spinning on Graves, Wednesday's Child Is Full of Woe
  • Doggies: Granite, Pa-Pow
  • GCs: Humanitas bath oil; Snake Oil, La Roue de Malheur, Mischief, Red Incense, Who Is Nibbling at my House? hair gloss; Cathouse, Down the Rabbit Hole, Erebos atmos sprays; Allure, Lullaby, Temple of Dreams, America's New Gods, Becoming Thunder, Coin Trick, Czernobog, Laura, Mad Sweeney, Mister Wednesday, Mr. Nancy's Gloves, Zorya Polunochnaya claw polish.

Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?-
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?
Nope. I think Gummy Drop on my phone is the extent of my gaming. I don't even play board or card games.

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)?
They're all so pretty! Especially the leaf one. Basically, I love really long scarves that I can wrap around my neck a bunch of times.

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you?
Like booze? What kinds?
Like Wine? What kinds?
I'm going to group these all together: I'm not much of a drinker. I'm not opposed to it. I just don't.

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors!
I'll pass. I have very short hair not conducive to hair accessories. Plus these look like something that would just end up being stolen by my cats!

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies?
It's not Halloween without Donnie Darko, Trick R Treat, and The Lost Boys. Some I try to watch every year but don't always manage to get to: A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Scream, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Ginger Snaps, The Evil Dead/Army of Darkness, and probably a few more I'm blanking on (but not Nightmare Before Christmas. That's a Christmas movie for me). Fan merch is fun!

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/
Any of the liquid soaps, body oils, hand creams, butters -- pretty much anything but the bar soap.
What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?
Love black cats, bats, skulls, rats, haunted houses... Really, anything but spiders. I *hate* spiders! As far as non-Halloween autumnal things, um, *everything*. Autumn is my favorite season! And Dia de los Muertos.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?
Sweet tooth! I have one! I love pretty much any Halloween candy (except black licorice or circus peanuts), and specialty/local candy is extra-awesome.
Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have?
I love frivolous things! Except I'll pass on a fidget spinner. Those specifically make me agitated for some reason.

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art?
Ooh, these look intriguing and relaxing. I have no experience with them, but I would love to try them.

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?
No, I don't really have enough hair or the right type for this sort of thing. I have a pixie, and it's too fine and silky to hold accessories!

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy?
Yes. I love local goodies. When I go on vacation, I try to go into grocery stores and find their local stuff. Chips, candy, jam -- it doesn't matter as long as it's yummy!

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?
I love them! I'm fairly set as far as the big beauty names go, although I've seen some Asian beauty ones that are intriguing that I haven't tried yet. I don't subscribe to any magazines at all.
Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.?
Hmm... Nail effects. I'm not really an eyelash person, and dark lipstick isn't really my style. I wear funky eyeshadow colors, but I don't really do costume makeup.

How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes?
Mainly iTunes and amazon! Wait. Not mainly. Exclusively, now that I think about it.

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book?
Format doesn't really matter. I just love reading!

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders?
Anything but candles! Open flames + my very inquisitive kitties = BAD THINGS. They don't seem to have this problem with incense or wax tarts/burners. As far as brands go, I don't have favorites. As far as scents go, I don't really have favorites there, although "white" notes are not for me.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?
I think I already answered this somewhere! I don't really craft, but I'm interested in learning how to knit.
How do you feel about nail wraps?
I love them! Especially Espionage Cosmetics (I have worn EC wraps steadily for two or three years now). Not so much Jamberry because I don't own a hairdryer, and that's a step I'm not willing to do anyway since Espionage wraps are so much easier.

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
I'm set for hats, but a cowl or sleeves (the tube kind without thumbholes) would be nice. My desk at work is directly under an HVAC vent that will randomly start blowing cold air on me even on the coldest day of the year! Hot hot pink or pretty much any shade of green or purple (or green *and* purple) are my kinds of colors.
- would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers?
Yes, yes, and yes! I'm allergic to wool. I love soft, silky stuff like chenille (and washable, because I *will* spill hot cocoa on it) for wearables, but I prefer cotton for washcloths.

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?
I'm going to have to think about this one.
If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why?
This is another gotta-mull-over-it question.
If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite?
Another ponder. (The three-famous-people question always gives me problems regardless of context!)
