The thread has gotten pretty overwhelming, so I'm going to put Q's you've asked directly ( or Q's I think you might want to know the answer to) in this blog entry for your convenience.
Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? Mitts, hat, shawls, unicorn... http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/
The Unicorns are ADORABLE but I don't need any more stuffed animals, really.
otherwise, the fingerless gloves all look lovely, and I could use some for work(the office is ALWAYS freezing).
Color/design wise, the "SFO Sky" mitts caught my eye.
- What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?
Goodness, this is hard. I think...
The Last Unicorn
?? Maybe De Sade?
This is hard for me because at this point I've gotten most of my holy grails (Glowing Vulva) and the really expensive DC/LE's don't appeal to me. I went on a BPAL hiatus for 5 years and I'm not really interested in tracking down all of the stuff I missed. I'm open to trying new things, but I'm not super crazy about tracking down much older stuff.
I've always wanted to try the Clockwork Couture scents (Male and Female).
I'd also LOVE to try the "Burning Books SN" that was released recently. But it was super limited I think, so it's probably hard to track. Still, those might give you ideas on what I like.
But, more than that, I now know that I absolutely need to get more Dorian, from like... two years ago.
I'm not sure if you're aware of the kerfluffle with Dorian. It went out of stock last year and just recently has come back. I have half of a very old bottle (12 years!) and while it's AMAZING, it's not quite the Dorian I remember. Right when it went OOS last year I wanted to buy a fresher bottle.
When it came back recently, I snagged a bottle but..it's not the same...at all. it's a lovely scent, but it's not Dorian.
On the other hand, a friend of mine has a bottle from about two years ago, and THAT is the scent I remember. So now...I'm on the hunt for Dorian from around 2012-2015.
- What are some things you do NOT want to receive?
Hm. I'm not opposed to much. Nothing edible that's not gluten free.
Things without a purpose (trinkets, etc). Trying REALLY hard to de-clutter.
Jewelry/Clothing/Home Decor/ in the colors of yellow/pink/orange.
- what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus???
Surprisingly, there's only a few I feel really strongly about and really think I want, but quite a few that I'm very curious about and would really like to sniff and get a decant of. There's only one or two I'm really interested in a bottle of. I attached a text document so it doesn't clutter up the email too much.
I feel really bad about how long that is; please don't think I want or expect all of that. If you are able to get "sniffies" or half decants of anything, I am more than ok with that!
The ones I MIGHT be interested in a blind bottle of would be "Violent Gesticulations" ( for the scent description and the title) and " Chiroptophobia (Fear of Bats) "
I bought a decant of the Dead Leaves and Black Musk HG from the Trading Post, but there's (kind of thankfully) not much from the BPTP Halloween Update that I think I'm interested in.
Re: Scrivener and Writing Software, I can technically use Mac and PC, and I use Scrivener on both. I have a MacBook for work and I keep Scrivener on it in case I have a sudden fit of inspiration at work.
But all of my personal systems are PCs so it's probably safer to get me software for those.
Re: are you planning on moving any time soon, say within the next year? I've been wanting to move out to the Pacific NW for years now, and I'm currently trying to find a new job, and would be open to moving out to the PNW. This is part of my personal push to be more productive; I'm trying to find a new job AND finish a novel.
But that being said, realistically? I don't know if I'll be moving within the next year. So let's say that answer is a "probably not moving in the next year". (I guess I could win the lotto, which would have a greater chance of happening than me finding the perfect job and moving out there in the next year).
does anybody like anything from Solstice Scents? I LOVE their Jack and the Devil. http://www.solsticescents.com/
I've tried some of their scents before,as freebies from other trades and sales. I'm really interested in the "burnished glace", in any autumn scents you think I might like, based on my preferred scent notes.
