    So Judgey Hair Gloss

    Oh my dear lord. OK I need a gallon drum of this. It's what I wanted from Pop-Out Eyeglasses and Vibrating Motel Bed. Light, lemony, fizzy soda goodness. Like a really good cocktail that's sooo balanced and refreshing it annihilates you if you're not careful. If you love 21, Shade, or any of the other Champagne blends... watch out, because I'mma be hoarding this one, dragon style.

    Switch Witch 2019

    9/18/19 Would you like anything from Future Primitive? (It's fine to mention OOS things) https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/ Sylph and Orange Coconut Mallow sound lovely Does anyone have a favorite horror movie that they love? Need a copy/DVD of? Ha, maybe Return of the Living Dead, or They Live, if that counts Do you like smallish knitted stuff (hats, fingerless mittens, scarves, toys, etc. -- be specific!)? sure, I like long scarves and loose knit caps that don't restrict my big oblong head 😑 Do any of these knitted items appeal to you? I like the mittens and the cowl! How do you feel about thrift store finds (assuming they're in good condition and have been thoroughly cleaned before shipping)? Probably not clothes or books, but hard objects that can be sterilized are fine 9/20/19 I may have bought several full size Rituel de Fille makeup items in a frenzy over their whole vibe. If I tested something once or twice (and it can be sanitized), would you be interested? Sure, that brand looks gorgeous Are you interested in trying different skincare products from higher end, clean brands? Sure Any interest in anything from Torrid, noting their "fangirl" and Halloween collections are updated? Some of the Ariel stuff is cute What on the following list would you like to receive something related to (or have something donated to in your and Joni's honor?) Animal rescue is a no-brainer, but god who doesn't love pie? Or boozy candy? I'll be going to Seattle, London and Paris during this round- anything you'd love to have from any of these locations? Just about anything! I enjoy Seattle and London the most (though I have a disproportionately large collection of London shotglasses 9/22 Is there anything you would particularly like from Japan? Stationary, bento supplies, a particular snack, etc. The fall flavors for kitkats this year are Chestnut, Sweet Potato and Apple Pie. I like cute stickers and office supplies! Finding snacks is a challenge. Thinking about really good natural food stores like Natural Grocers or Whole Foods, if you could have ANY bath and beauty or body care items, what would you love? Nail polish, anything lavender scented like hand creams and stuff. Blotting papers. Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love? Rose tulsi tea, lots of teas actually. All of the vegan snacks. Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive? Hm. I don't think this is a fun item but I'm in the market for a new dish sponge holder. 9/23: Liliths? I've been loosely planning to pick up these from a decant circle: And Sing, And Sing Bits of Birnam Wood Gnome Ruckus Health Goth Impromptu Goat Yoga Lazy Daisy The Scottish Princess Vampire Tween Birthday Surprise Cat-Lilith and Cat-Dad Go Hawks! Lilith’s First Concert LUSH? I like Sleepy, and I need to get a new Vanishing Cream soon. And Tea Tree toner. 9/28/19 Do you have an Etsy/Goodreads/Amazon or anything else wishlist you’d like to share? I think they are up on the spreadsheet! And what’s your preferred wrist/necklace size? Necklaces, I will wear anything from a collar choker to a waist length pendant, since I'm tall. Don't know my official wrist size, not tiny for sure, but not that big either. Does anything from Bird & Blend take your fancy? Oh my, now I have another kind of tea to obsess over. Brighton Rock and Moondrop Dreams look gorgeous. And Bears Like Marmalade reminds me of my cat! Kung Flu fighter and Earl Grey Roobios seem like solid bets too. Oh my stars, and a Rainbow Matcha collection? I will definitely be shopping for this tea at some point in the future. Knitting questions have have been asked, but how about wash cloths, anyone need any? What colors?? I can always use more, my bathroom towel colors are all shades of blue and green but I am not fussy. is there anything from World Market that tickles your fancy? No specific thoughts! 9/29/19 There's a special thing happening over at Rituel de Fille this weekend, where some gorgeous makeup items are coming back for just a couple of days. I'll be placing an order Sunday or Monday- anything that might strike your fancy, either from the special sale or from the site in general? (https://ritueldefille.com) I'm not answering this promptly but that brand is beautiful. How do you feel about tarot or oracle decks? Would you be interested in any (for artwork or for mystical purposes)? New or used? Sure, if there's one my witch feels would be meaningful to send to me. I'm not all that well versed in the cards however. Would pigment samples from companies like M.A.C. or Notoriously Morbid tickle your fancy? If so, what colors catch you eye? Yes, any! I love all metallics and iridescent colors. 9/30/19 do you have a favourite saying or quote? Most anything Dorothy Parker said. How do you feel about spicy foods, and where on the Scoville scale do you hit your limit? I'm weenie! Jalapeno is about my spiciest possible number. How do you feel about coloring books, especially those pertaining to a personal interest or fandom? Not really my thing tho I know there are some pretty af ones out there. 10/1/19 A few questions have been asked about knitted items--are crocheted equivalents acceptable? (crocheted fingerless gloves, shawls, etc.) Any fiber issues? Vegan preferred! I'd love to have a whole crochet dress or long jacket someday 😊 tho not expecting my Witch to make it, lol About the Weenies: please list what you've bought or are definitely purchasing for yourself *as well as* what you would like to possibly receive from someone else! Nothing definite yet! Here is what I am considering decants of (thankfully I am safe from lots of the Weenies, unlike the Lils): Apple Sugar Cardamom Cream Pumpkin Cake Pistachio Pumpkin Truffle Pumpkin Cheesecake Hair Gloss Pumpkin Latte The Listeners Dear Witchee, are you at all boozy? Anywhere between hard cider to straight whisk(e)y? And any interest in the "unusual" stuff? (unusual as in non-mainstream, local craft ciders or meads, regional fruit wines, experiments from local distilleries, etc) A bit! I love special liqueurs and such - not as into beer, wine or mead, with the exception of sparkling wines. 10/2/19 Nail Polish: Do you need or want some? If so, what colors and brands are you interested in? Need? No. Want? Always. I love brights from Cupcake Polish, and neutrals, darks and jewel tones from ILNP. Does anyone else do nail wraps? Not really though I do own some VERY cute ones from Espionage. What about postcards? Sure Is anyone interested in anything from the Nocturne Alchemy Halloween release (or, presumably, anything else from the site)? Not familiar with them! I may look later. How do you feel about salt? I don’t mean, like, salted nuts or potato chips. I mean straight-up salt, like alder-smoked finishing salt or Hana Flake sea salt. Pink salt is fun, black is good for faux egg vegan dishes. 10/3/19 I am infamous for baking (shortbreads savory and sweet, poundcake, various cookies and bars), butter caramels (flavored or plain), and catnip. Are any of these relevant to you or your household? Squirrel doesn't get anything from catnip! I would like vegan versions of any of the human foods listed. Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits? Not much although I wish I did more. Cleanup is annoying. I want to get some Provence seasoning and dried rosemary soon though. Would you wear any of these? Fern , Nuada, Manannan, Duleek Abbey or an infinity scarf or tube cowl tall enough for a hood (like this scarf or this cowl for shape example)? - Do you have any utilitarian needs for everyday life? Things that would help or that you've been needing or wanting for work or whatever? - What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites? Answered via email! 10/4/19 How would you describe your crafting style? Whimsical & Cute? Elegantly modern? Totally Traditional? Nonexistant lol 10/6/19 So....we are about to process a metric f*ton of green tomato relish, which is basically bread and butter pickles but with sliced green cherry tomatoes. Is this relevant to any witchees? Sure! I'd try it, I have a boyfriend who would definitely finish anything I didn't. How do you celebrate Halloween/Samhain? Do you dress up? Would you like something for your costume? And am I the only person left on the planet who wears socks? Lol, is this all one question? I wear socks a lot, not usually Halloween ones or anything. For Halloween this year I was thinking of recycling my Jessica Jones costume from last year 🤷‍♀️

    This smells more like violets on me than it has any right to.
  4. StinkyPinky

    Pink Peach, Grapefruit, Yuzu, & Pink Musk

    Fizzy pink grapefruit and (very) subtle peachy nectar sweetness. Super light and fresh, truly a very "pink" effervescent blend. As a pink grapefruit/peach/fruity/gourmand girl, I need a gallon drum of this now. ETA: fade down is a nice gentle, sweet but not cloying, light skin musk reminiscent of Velvet Nudie. So far this scent is working on me from wet to dry!

    Switch Witch Summer 2013!

    Hi Witch!!!! Here are my wishlists links, before we go any further. Now I just include this to show an idea of my tastes - they are rather long and overwhelming, so don't stress about poring over them, please! Also I may have added like two solid pages of just food to my etsy last night when I was hungry and insomniac and awake. Yeah, I dunno. BPAL Amazon WL etsy favs Here are the questioney questions. I thought I wouldn't really answer a bunch this round, as there is still an ungodly amount of info up on my blog from the last few, but, well, I can't resist. Monday June 17/13 Dr Who? Oh hell yeah! The new one only. I love Tennant and enjoy Smith as well, and love Martha and Donna but have a hard time choosing a favorite companion. Maybe Martha, I dunno tho. They all have their moments. How much do you like lipbalm? Flavored or unflavored? What are your favorite brands and flavors? I don't like it. I LOVE it. Flavored is good by me. current favs: Burt's Bees in grapefruit Alba un-petroleum in cherry Fresh Sugar lip balm (this is hells of expensive tho) Hurraw! tinted lip balm in bing cherry Do you like and wear lipgloss? If yes, what colours? My holy grail is Tarina Tarantino's "sparklicity" gloss in Nouveau Nude. Sadly, I had just opened my backup of this and immediately lost it! Anyway, I love unusual or sparkly nudes, corals and some warm pinks. Warm colors in general, unless it's a sheer glitter color, in which case it can be a cooler tone glitter and still usually look ok layered on me. For those of you whose wishlists contain only BPALs, are there any other perfume companies you like or would like to try out?I'm hesitant to try new kindsa perfume, as most of them irritate my BF's sensitivities, so I can't experiment too much. If it was a similar more "natural" perfume oil like BPAL I'd be open to it. I do like some things from Demeter, too; mostly the foody and herbal ones. I once had like a lemon single-note perfume from Philosophy, years ago, that was really nice. It was LE and they no longer make it, though. Your feelings on Adagio teas: If you've never had anything from them, would you be open to trying them? If you HAVE had them and like them, name some favorites blends. And if you had them and dislike them, can you name a few *other* tea companies you're into? I'm always open to new and delicious kinds of tea. Uh, that come in a bag. What about coffee? Would you like to get coffee send to you? Whole bean or ground? What are some varieties and/or flavors you enjoy? I need to get a coffee maker! I'm not even sure what kind I like! If you were a Disney princess you would be?: I forgot about her until someone else mentioned her, but I'd actually probably be Belle. Like a fat Belle maybe. Or maybe I'd be one of these: http://geekologie.com/2011/12/i-cant-even-recognize-you-disney-princes.php Would you like a seashell from Florida? I don't have any real use for it, but if it's shiny and cool looking I'll probably like it. What craft project do you currently have on your docket or that you want to start? And that craft goodies would be welcome? I generally fail at craft. I sort of like doing nail art projects, but don't have the spare time or patience for anything much of the sort these days. If you could have one rare bpal which one would you choose? Hm, maybe The Star, although I haven't ever sniffed it. Or Glittering Apple of the Stars (I'm out ) 6-18-13: Do you need hair accessories? If so, what kind or color? I need more Alice bands/headbands. I want one with a little metal bow on it, I still haven't found the perfect one. I can always use more barrettes, pins, bows almost anything really (not scrunchies). If it helps, I like blue hair accessories! Also black, red, purple, silver, copper and green. Also I am raccoon-like and love anything that sparkles. What is your favorite shade of blue? I like sky blue, peacock teal, bright turquoise, and navy. Sorry I have a hard time picking favorites. Do you have any kitchen gadgets (a SodaStream, a Kuerig/Tassimo) that you want mix things for? No! That sounds fun though. Are you kinky? Yes, I think I can say that. Do you enjoy scented candles? Certain sizes that you like? What kind of scents or brands? WELL. Scented candles are a HUGE no-no in my house currently. BUT. I will be living on my own for a few months, when my partner takes a temporary job out-of-state, starting in late August. So I could probably get away with hoarding one and burning it after he leaves! I like citrus, mint, most lighter fruity scents, sometimes lighter pumpkin/spicy/cinnamon variety things, or pine needles, and I like the natural/health food store type candles. I'd love to try a BPTP candle, and I used to like a lot of candles Pacifica makes. Not particular about sizes. Thoughts about South Africa? Have you been here, would you like to go? Would you like to receive anything South African? You know, I really don't know all that much about it! I've never been, and don't know what kind of specific thing from there I might want! I'm sure there's awesome stuff out there. Sock Dreams? *drool* I will DEFINITELY be checking out the brick and mortar store when I make my visits to pdx over the coming year! Love 'em. If you were to start learning something new (intellectual or craft or hobby), what would it be? I am a beginner (read: complete first-timer) at writing music/my own songs, so I want to learn/get better at that! Sort of relatedly, I really want to learn guitar, or maybe piano. Video games? I'm not really much of a gamer. I like playing Defend Your Castle on the wii about 2-3X per year, and Katamari/We Love Katamari (on PS3) a few times a year also. And I've been known to be down for a Mario Party once in a blue moon. Do you have an e-reader? No. What about candy? Do you have a sweet tooth? It's not so much a sweet tooth as it is a poorly controlled sugar addiction. If it is vegan and sweet, I will likely eat it. If your witch is an extremely crafty sort, and she were to send all kinds of homemade foody goodies and handmade crafty stuff - what are items you would NOT LOVE to receive: Very delicate things, like strands of beads, that are likely to break, are probably destined for destruction at my house. For the foody, I'm not a huge fan of walnuts, or most nuts in baked goods, nor am I a big fan of banana. I'm generally not a picky eater though. Do you have something you do, without fail, as a personal daily habit/ritual? (Examples: pen-and-paper journal keeping, tea/coffee drinking, morning yoga, nightly bedtime reading. I'm kind of thinking on things that would be dear to you and might need small supplies or could use certain extras. )I should really include more of this kinda shit in my life. Not really, although I sing whenever possible and I'm a pretty big tea drinker (in bags). I guess flossing? lol Do you wear nailpolish? What colors do you tend to go for? What are your favorite brands? Are you open to trying indie brands? I HOARD the nailpolish like nobody's business. I love blues (from deep midnight indigo and cobalt, to teal, turquoise and sky blue), purples (blackened dark purples, grape soda purples, bright magentas, lavender pinkish shades), some warmer pinks/reds/corals/oranges, holos, metallics, neon, glitters... I fantasize about ordering from Rainbow Honey probably once a week on average; I absolutely love the colors I have from there. Totally open to any amazing indie creations. Usually, the more glitter the better, for me. More "mainstream" fave brands? Zoya, Orly, OPI, Rescue Beauty Lounge, NARS, and Deborah Lippmann. Name three BPAL scents you have tried, but are dying to get more of.Beaver'Versary, The Glittering Apple of the Stars, Uncle Traveling Matt Do you still write real letters on nice stationary to people you like/love?No bc I am a horrible person :,( Have you ever tried anything from Paintbox Soapworks? Which products or scents would you prefer? I've tried a few! They're a bit strong, I'll think about it though. ETA: Well I went through and favorited a bunch of things on etsy. Most of what I'm guessing are her summer collection sound quite lovely. Do you like/have space to garden? If so, what do you grow? I fail at growing things and don't really have a space I use for it. Do you like sample sized things? Think lipgloss, mascara, bodylotion, scrubs, mini candles, and so forth. That would be a yes. Have you tried Fortune Cookie Soap? What products or scents would you like?No I haven't! Do you use solid soaps at all? If so, what kind do or don't you like? Yeah! I like Tom's tangerine soap a lot, and those bulk ones at whole foods. I don't like florals, but I do like minty, citrus/fruity/tropical things and some lavenders. Have you ever tried Cocoa Pink? If you are curious about it, what looks interesting to you? Yes I have, I liked their unscented body butter a lot. Most of it's all too scented for me though. Do you like Lush? If so, what is your favorite product that is currently available, also, what is a product that you love but has been discontinued? Yes - I like their scalp treatment, I think that's been discontinued. Favorite current products: Ocean Salt and Vanishing Cream. Anyone a fan of Shiro Cosmetics? Any particular products? Eye shadow pigments in general? Not familiar with Shiro. I love pigments and own a ton. I have a lot of glorious Archetype ones I'll never be able to replace. So far the only HG one of those I've run out of was Dirty Blonde. What was the question? Are there any companies, products, or items you boycott? OK I am fussy and from San Francisco so I boycott a lot of things: -fast food places (all of them but especially McDonalds) -Walmart -companies that animal test (Procter & Gamble is one) -Monsanto (in theory; I'm sure I'm not avoiding their shit altogether) -companies that sell fur -Nestle (in theory. They are a pretty awful company, I know that) -Purina ... I pretty much just prefer non-chains/mass produced, and companies with ethics in general. As I am in Japan, what sort of things would you like from there? Kawaii stationary or the like, I will never turn down. I'd say candy but doubt most of it's vegan-friendly. Since FB and the FB Gusp group (and the BPAL Sorority which is quiet) have become gathering places...what are some of your favorite Facebook pages you like? I like George Takei's, and l used to love Ebert's too. Thursday June 20/13 Do you read literature/culture blogs or websites of any kind? I'm thinking about anything that would help a putative witch to get a sense of what your current tastes in books, movies, games, genres, approaches to culture and literature and so forth are Sometimes I look at Neil Gaiman's blog. I look at Vice occasionally. I'm feeling so un-literary. I look at Rachel Maddow's website/blog occasionally. I used to love looking at Roger Ebert's online presence and writing, I haven't been doing that since his death though. Sometimes Jezebel and Gawker, mostly I am just lazy and look at facebook so I read whatever's being linked in my feed. Pathetic really. How do you feel about traditional picnics (namely the intimate table for two variety)? Old-fashioned basket or something more utilitarian (cooler/insulated bag)? Sounds charming either way. I was just thinking it's been a reaaaalllly long time since I've picnicked. If you were put in a room with 100 random other people the same age and sex as you, from your country, in what way do you think you would be different from the average?I've been mulling this one over for a while now and I'm still not completely sure how to answer. The superficial things? I've probably got most of those other girls beat in the hips/ass department (my proportions are rather extremely pear-shaped), I've probably got on more sparkly/unusual jewelry and accessories, and possibly more visually interesting clothing. I wear glasses and have a pierced lip, I am on the tall side, and I might also have on more interesting makeup, depending on the day. Although I'm nonreligious, I'm of Jewish heritage, so I suppose that also would set me apart from the majority, statistically speaking. The non-surface things? I am very pro-women's, pro-immigrant, pro-animal, pro-queer and pro-trans rights, my politics fall on the radical side of progressive -- I'm probably more into politics in general, actually. I have a rather biting and dark sense of humor at times, and also a very goofy one (ex. I do impressions. Not all are good). I've put a fair amount of time in my life into studying music and acting, so I guess I'd like to think my voice stands out from the crowd. Oh, and like someone else here mentioned, I do open relationships, woot. I think of myself as pretty unconventional all-around, but it's hard to think of specific things that set me apart. We're all unique snowflakes, right? I guess I have a lot more movie trivia under my hat than a lot of girls my age. I'm pretty into film in general, as well as theatre and music. I'm a mostly-vegan vegetarian, and I'm also what I believe is referred to as a functioning stoner. I'm firmly child-free, as well as pretty anti-marriage (I live with my partner, but marriage gets less likely as times goes by). That's a pretty huge one, actually, as I'm hovering around that magical 30th birthday mark. Another big thing? Well, I like meeting people online, and am the sort to sign up to spend a month or two gifting and spoiling a (likely) complete stranger from an online community, who I may never meet IRL, just for the fun of it! Haus of Gloi did a Reverie update! Do any of them interest you? (Or anything else up currently?) Everyone here seems to love them; I've never tried them myself. I'd be open to something like a lip balm, I forget what else they make. Witchee, do you cook? Do you do all the cooking? Is it a chore or a pleasure? I do most of the cooking in my house, which is still a pretty small amount. It's a chore mostly owing to my cramped apartment and limited budget of money and time/energy. Which reading level do you prefer to read in YA or Adult? Or even both? I'm not too much of a snob for YA, some of my favorites are in that genre (Dahl, Lowry, flb, for example) That said, if it's real simplistic, I might not get much out of it either. 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.After seeing someone else answer "computer" I realized I have to say my iphone. I judge myself for having one (I have problems with Apple's production style) and relying as heavily on it as I do (just makes me feel like a stereotypical asshole), but hey, it's unarguably incredibly useful. Do you have any problems with swearing or particularly off-color humor?Dude, fuck no. 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? I would like to sample almost EVERYTHING from the Song of Nature line (barring the ones with my "no-no" notes), and Hungry Ghost moon sounds kind of nice too. I'll probably skip buying anything for myself, however. Resources are going toward Witchee spoiling right now! Opinions on table top games, from cards and board games, to dice and rpgs. What do you like?I like some "party games" but I'm not much of a serious gamer AT ALL. I've had fun playing Cards Against Humanity before but it also makes me uncomfortable. What style is your sense of humour? It ranges from dark/dry to absurdist to broad slapstick. Is there anything from Australia you would like? Regional spices/flavoring blends/sauces? I don't really know! I'd be open to trying vegan foods from anywhere. I guess Princess Tina and Black Milk are Aussie lines I think are cool, but way more expensive/designer-y than anything I'd normally be buying myself or expecting you to get for me, Witch! Gift cards/vouchers - yay or nay? If you like them - which stores would you like one for? Love 'em. Any makeup company, Sock Dreams, Target, Starbucks, Whole Foods, almost anywhere really. How big is too big...for something to hang on your walls? If I'm painting you a pretty picture, are there maximum dimensions that you have/prefer? I could go fairly big I imagine, and could probably find space for any art you'd make me, but I guess let's say movie poster size is about the max for not having to rearrange anything. Question: Put your mp3 player/online music/itunes/etc on random and list the next 10 songs here: This game never works out well for me cuz I have so much random stuff squirreled away on here, but here we go: The Compliments Song - Home Movies Soundtrack hahahaha King & Weed - !!! Long May You Run (unplugged version) - Neil Young Walking With a Ghost (White Stripes cover) Timmy! Medley - Home Movies Soundtrack (thanks again, itunes. lol) These Days - Nico It's a Wonderful Life - Sparklehorse (I have literally never listed to this one) Let Down - Radiohead Human Nature - Michael Jackson (have also never listed to this) 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 a great question; I'll have to think on it. What are the three books you most want to read right now, and which you don't already have?HMMMM. Let's see. *goes to check wishlist and goodreads* A Moveable Feast, any Marilyn Monroe book, and... Chin Music. Would you like something from Empire Edibles? looks amazing but i doubt they have vegan stuff Is there anything small you try to collect from everywhere you visit? No! Perhaps I should start. 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 I'd honestly be fine not getting any perfume (though there are def ones I want to try/hoard). Is that weird? I won't be heartbroken not to get anything that I can think of. I guess some kind of personal communication/touches would be great, but I also understand if you want to be ninja about it. Do you like tarot cards, pendulums and rune stones etc? If so, what type? Not really. I'm kind of interested in getting more gemstones I guess. What fandoms do you belong to? I wouldn't say I'm a card-carrying member of any one fandom. I like some nerdy things, like Gaiman, Dr. Who, Cowboy Bebop, Labyrinth, Miyazaki movies... but I'm not really that devoted to any one in particular. What cheers you up? My cats Who or where would you most want to haunt? Who would you least want to be haunted by? I don't understand the question? What question do you hate to answer? Honestly??? I sort of hate being asked how I am doing, most of the time. What a hard thing to try and be honest about and still be socially appropriate. What is the best compliment you have/could receive? Well, here's a few of the best I have ever received (I remember these things, I am a Leo, okay) - one time a girl in a musical theatre class in college told me I sounded like Judy Garland, after I sang in a trio version of "Sing for Your Supper." My close friend Jo told me recently that I was the person she trusted the most for recommendations on comedy TV shows. And, I recently got a complement comparing my curves to Bettie Page's (yeah, in my dreams, I must have 100 lbs on her, but damned if that wasn't a fucking great complement to get). 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.Oh man, European chocolate is amazing, but I'm not well-versed in what is dairy-free. I guess I like French and Italian Vogue, I'm guessing those would be heavy to ship though. Just anything you think I'd like, doesn't have to be anything fancy! Do you like bags? If so, what type (rucksack, clutch, shopping bag) colour and would you like/need a new one? I am a bag hoarder, all kinds really. I can always use more little grocery bags, though, esp. since they started charging for bags in my city. Hey, why not blue bags? What's your favourite comfort food(snack or candy etc) and/or drink? Chocolate soy milk (it's been a while since I've been regressed enough to want this), soy White Russians (this has been more recent ), chai, veggie burger with fries or sweet potato fries, vegan sweets of almost any kind. Eat emotionally much? Would you be interested in someone writing out for you a favourite recipe, or finding or devising one which they think you'd like? Sure! 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'm into vegan recipes that are easy to follow and don't require a ton of specialty ingredients/tools. I like Post Punk Kitchen a lot. Just found this one tonight and it looks pretty good too: http://hellyeahitsvegan.com/ I guess for other witches this might include something like a knitting pattern - not my thing but would you like that? I don't knit. I most likely wouldn't use it. 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!) OMG, it is that and my eye is too messed up right now too take all that in. Later! 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? Well I would get really good at playing and composing allll kinds of music, maybe I'd start learning to rap and become really amazing with all that practice. This reminds me of that movie Groundhog Day. I'd definitely study a bunch of languages, too. Maybe take up photography, learn to cook really well...hmm, what an interesting question. I'd write plays, maybe, or operas, or maybe novels? I think maybe I'd sing in some operas as well, I don't see myself ever doing that in this lifetime but maybe in another one... 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? Wow. Research on launching acting/singing/writing careers that would be helpful to my particular situation somehow, maybe? What colors/style is your kitchen decor? And do you entertain in your home?Utilitarian, undecorated for the most part. I do throw the occasional party (throwing one in August in fact!) and entertain guests. Nothing fancy in this apartment tho. Are your ears pierced? Yep, a "hole" bunch. Ech, sorry Do you like stuffies/stuffed animals/art doll type thingies? If so, any particular type you'd love to get? Dunnys. Junko Mizuno figures too. I also may or may not kind of want a squishable Is there a Quote that resonates with you, or that you particularly like a lot. Would this be something you would like artwork made of for your walls or a shirt/bag/scarf? I know I have some up on my Goodreads, I can't think of a good one offhand though. Also, STARBUCKS, Yay or Nay? Anything you particularly like? I've been pretty into u/s soy green tea lattes lately. Is there someone on the forums (within SW or not) who knows you really well and might be able to help with stalking? Glambie is one of my BFF, she's out of the country for a bit tho. If you happen to find out who yours is, how much would it bother you? I'm not gonna be uptight about this! It's SW, anything goes and it's all good. Do you use waxmelts or tarts? If so, which ones do you prefer? Nope Do you enjoy drinking hot chocolate, and would you like stuff to make it with, or to add to it? I have yet to find a vegan solution for hot chocolate that was any good at all. Have you ever tried Spoonfudge? Would you enjoy it if your Witch would send you some? Which of the flavors would you like? Hm, guessing that is dairy, I would try a vegan one (starting to sound like a broken record ) What's your opinion on Moonalisa? Any favorites or products you'd like to try? I've no knowledge on the brand. Are there any BPALs that you loved the idea of, the imagery - whether artwork or description - but which didn't work out for you? (I'm asking because if they did, you might mention them elsewhere, but if not, the imagery might be helpful) What was that Shunga with white ginger and gingergrass notes? That one. ENTANGLED. That was it. I thought that sounded so much nicer and creamier than it turned out to be on me. I think that was when I realized I can't do gingergrass. Do you want to receive one big package or a bunch of small ones? Digital stuff all at the end when the box should arrive or as we go? Whatever is easiest for my Witch! However, I feel like part of the SW experience is getting that physical box and opening it/photo-documenting it, so I guess I prefer not total 100% digital witching, if I get a choice. Do you welcome knitted items? If so, what would you like most? (amigurumi, washcloth, socks, shawl, shawlette, scarf, wrist warmers, hat, etc.) Do you have any favorite fibers? How about any fiber allergies? Favorite color for knitted items? I would definitely welcome any handknitted items, but especially wearable ones. I'm still looking for a good knit/crocheted beret/cap/beanie that's not too tight and that I can stick my hair under if I want to, and I can never have enough scarves. I guess I prefer vegan fibers but am also ok with ethically-sourced animal fibers. I had a previous witch, childoftime, who made me a lovely scarf, using ethically sound wool; it's super soft and nice and I love it. Only fiber allergy is to down feathers, but I doubt it matters unless you are knitting me a handmade boa, in which case, I will suffer through the allergies. I like black, grey, red, and of course, blue. Oh you know I could use more potholders, too, if that's your thing. Do you have any symbols or totems that are meaningful to you? Sometimes hummingbirds (I have this fantasy where I get a big chest piece involving hummingbirds and fuchsias) - they are native to the western hemisphere only, and I have heard they symbolize "looking for true love" or some shit. Also, lately, owls (and I at one time was also planning an owl tattoo as well). And ouroboros - I've been really fascinated by these lately. One of the things they symbolize is eternal return. Plus they're referenced heavily in one of my favorite albums, I'm Having Fun Now. When you are having a really rough day, what do you like to do/have to make it a little brighter? If I'm on my own, watch a random movie that my Bf wouldn't want to watch (something escapist, foreign [bF works at home, including when we watch movies, so we don't often put on anything subtitled] kid stuff like Miyazaki or a period piece), do my nails, maybe read a book or a magazine (that's a total comfort/luxury item), talk to friends, look at the forum!, eat something delicious and/or made of chocolate, listen to either cathartic/emotional or relaxing music, have a nice cocktail/beer/wine (white), smoke bowls, spend time with kitties, do deep breathing (should remember to do this more), sing. Tattoos: I LOVE (good) tattoo art, the more creative the better. I'd be sporting a whollle lot more of them than I am now, if I'd ever had any amount of money in my life to get them with. How do you feel about home-canned goods? Awesome TAL on etsy? Probably not. I've never used any TAL and wouldn't know what I was doing. Seen anything lately that makes you go OH HOLY FUCK THAT'S AWESOME!! ? THESE SUCKERS RIGHT HERE HOMIGOD Do you like audiobooks? If so, do you have/would you like to try Audible? (I'm an addict, myself.) I had a subscription that I cancelled. Right now I have 3 unlistened audiobooks on my computer: Mindy Khaling's book, Rob Lowe's book, and Good Omens (actually it's mostly listened-to except the very end, and I've read that one before). Anyway I wouldn't mind trying it again but as you can see I don't make it a priority to listen. Chocolate: Love? Hate? Allergic? If love, what are your faves? Love, but have been limited in variety since cutting out dairy. I'm still always on the search for the best vegan chocolate! Chocolove (the ginger, peppermint and cherry varieties) might be my current favorite, and I've also tried a few amazing raw/organic chocolate from local producers that I've liked a lot. I still miss milk chocolate, and I've seen rice milk chocolate at the store and wondered just how close a sub it might be. Every package has to have something blue in it. Blue can also be used to describe more risque humor...how would you rate your general sense of humor? Are you strictly PG-13, R-rated, NC-17? There's really not that much that shocks me, I don't have any one particular rating though. Do you like puzzles? What kind? Jigsaw, word, etc? Well they're not my fav, I prefer board games. I guess crosswords, I like. I'll do those very occasionally. Monday July 1/13 I know Canadian chips can be different than others, how does "dill pickle" or "ketchup" sound? No thanks! *hides* If you were getting a custom Haus of Gloi blend, what four notes would you choose? Summer notes listed here and you can click through to the whole list from there. http://www.hausofglo...er-single-notes Oh my, I find that totally daunting. Lemon, pineapple and peach skin all appeal to me though. QUESTION! Do you like Kickstarter? Are there any projects up that you really like? I'd support more stuff If I had more money. *shrug* Film projects especially. QUESTION! If you have an Etsy wishlist, what are your top 5 favorite things on there? The price is unimportant, not because I'm rich, but because I'd like some inspiration. Armor leggings Ouroboros Little star The Auryn ... kitties Mine are all clothing and jewelry, does that mean I'm really boring? Don't answer that. >.> How do you feel about glitter? does loose glitter make your skin crawl or would you bathe in it? I have bathed in it very recently, I threw some over me when I went out during Pride, when I couldn't wear eye makeup due to eye grossness. I don't like loose confetti so much in packages though, as it is pretty but hard to clean up, plus I kinda feel bad throwing it away. Do you want/need/like/collect journals? If so, do you prefer lined or unlined? Yes, I don't really collect them but I do covet them. Lined. I write messy. Does the idea of wearing a plant as jewelery give you the warm fuzzies or the heebie jeebies? It doesn't give me much of a strong feeling either way. Gourmet popcorn, yes/no? What do you like: glazed, savory, candied? Nuts or not? Any flavors you wouldn't like (like Bacon CHeeseburger, Pizza, Watermelon, Root Beer Float, Hot Chili Dark Chocolate)? Or if any of those sounded interesting, how weird is weird enough? Anything vegan, but not hot chili. I've gotten a taste for trader joe's kettle corn recently. Question: I make my own hair gloss, would you like some detangling and very shiny hair gloss made by me? This is a 'cone rich blend, not the least bit natural. Why yes, yes I would. Thursday June 27/13 I live near the Brown and Haley outlet - makers of Almond Roca and Mountain Bars - would you want anything from the outlet? For nut-haters, they have nutless Roca For the no-sugar folks they have sugar-free as well. Dairy free? I also have an Oberto jerky outlet local to me - any wants there? You'll know my answer, witch Do you like BPTP clothing? Oh god yes What size do you wear of: Baby-doll T's XL Regular T's Probably L? yoga pants XL Also, what is your favorite lunacy (or non-lunacy) T-shirt that you don't already own? Or other clothes from BPTP? Would love a basic logo tissue T, with brimstone or triple dagger. Used is good too. Or a MVJVB baseball tee! The tank top with leather logo patch is lovely too, although probably not vegan, and very pricey. meh. What else do you love from the Trading Post site, and need to have? Hmmm. Soap? Claw polish in Hell's Belle? Jewelry? Apron? Is there a particular movie genre that you like (Fantasy? Drama? Romantic Comedy? Musicals? TV-Series, etc), and what format would you prefer: DVD, Blu-Ray, or something in the cloud (like Amazon, iTunes, Flixster, etc)? My Amazon WL has a pretty good representation of my tastes in genre. Comedy, both black and absurd, is always a favorite. I love musicals and Shakespeare films, good sci-fi, and culty TV comedies. -Following up on the Adagio question from earlier, what are you top five wishes, for teas and blends? I like earl grey and almost all kinds of herbal and green teas! Do you have anything that you do ritually, every summer? No! I should think of something good. I guess I always go see a movie hosted by Peaches Christ at the Castro. I'm going to see The Craft this month! Hehehe. -What are your top five wishes from ThinkGeek? My bf likes that site more than me. They do have some cool little projectors that throw stars/galaxy designs on the walls that seem awesome. One day when I'm rich. Wednesday June 26/13 Do you have any long trips coming up? If so, could you use things to occupy yourself? Not especially. I'll be helping my partner move to Portland, so I will be busy eating vegan food and donuts, and crying, lol. We're driving up there but it's a fairly short trip and we're supposed to have a friend along as well. Then the plane ride back is nothing. I'm going to Jungle Jim's next week (it's basically a massive international food gasm in Ohio, look it up); would anything interest you?Did you say food?? Name three things that you could use, but might not necessarily think to get for yourself? -More washcloths/hand towels -new crystal nail file -lingerie bag for the laundry (ok I saw that online today) Does anything from the TP Etsy update interest you? I can't keep up with these ever. I just found out Oreo is launching ones with watermelon flavor in the USA only. Is it something you would enjoy? Oh god, keep it away! On the other hand, I just tried some lemon Oreos that were quite nice (though, granted, pretty bad for you). What are the three BPALs you would most like to receive - one GC, one not-hard to find LE, and one HTF LE from your dreams? If you don't consider yourself in a "fandom" (and I get that ... I don't really go overboard on my liking of any TV show/Movie/etc), are there any TV shows or Movies that you really like and/or watch regularly or any actors/actresses you wouldn't leave standing in the rain (unless you like looking at them sopping wet, in which case ... well, nevermind)? So, dear witchee, would you like some Tw*twaffle soap or scent or lotion? Has anyone asked about tattoos? Do you love them? Hate them? Have any? Want any? Tuesday June 25/13 What are the three BPALs you would most like to receive - one GC, one not-hard to find LE, and one HTF LE from your dreams? If you knit/crochet, what sizes of needles do you need? What styles of artwork do you like? If you cook, would you be interested in-hand made spice mixes/rubs? Would you like mexican vanilla or silver rings/necklaces? The Conjure Oils update (http://conjureoils.com/emporium.htm) looks absolutely fabulous...I didn't know she made soaps and candles and whanot. Is there anything from the Oddment Emporium you would like? What is your favorite color? What is your favorite season?

    Switch Witch 2012!

    Hi Witch!!! Psst. I realized today I forgot to mention on the questionnaire one of the things I collect - Dunnys from Kidrobot. If you need details on that, feel free to get a message to me! KETCHUP QUESTIONS OF DOOM AND KETCHUP. What's the neatest freebie you've gotten? It can be cool or thoughtful or just totally unexpected, and not limited to BPALdom. Debbie, purveyor of Glitterlimes, who always seems to remember me as a customer, has included barrettes with some of my larger orders in the past. Since I love everything she makes, this is always awesome! Do you like s'mores and s'mores-flavored things?Add me to the gelatin-free list and we're talking. OMG, I've also had really good s'more-cookie-like-treats from Sweet & Sara before. Would recommend to anyone with a vegan-sweet-loving Witchee. 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)? Spice mixes sound intriguing as long as it's not garlic salt. I have a bento box already that I never use, sadly. 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 Sure, I'd probably take a L or XL for my big ol' self. What kind of chocolate do you like? Nuts, no nuts, white,dark, etc? I tend to like flavors like orange, cherry, mint or caramel mixed in with my chocolate... often I'll go for a milk, but I like dark too, as long as it's more sweet than bitter. Nuts aren't so much my thing except for almonds, which I do like. I admit I have a bit of a weakness for See's, my hometown favorite. Chocolove is amazing too. Are home made foods acceptable or does the idea of eating strange mailed food disturb you? I like to live on the edge. 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! (Oh, BTW, like stellans, Walmart is on my Boycott list, but for argument's sake...) Some kind of gratuitous cute bra, yet more lip balm (the "natural" kind), a new highlighter, which I could kind of use but don't really -need-, mini Heath bars to replace the bag I went through this week What kind of cuisines do you like? And, what are your favorite restaurants? I'm sure I touched on this because eating lots of different foods is my favorite, but... Indian, Thai, Japanese, Mexican, Vietnamese, Middle Eastern, Italian, "creative vegetarian comfort food" - stealing this from Joyful Girl. OMG makes me think of Doomie's in L.A. - Golden Era and Greens, Papalote and the Curry Up Now truck in SF are some current favs... I live near a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Penzeys! What does your little heart desire from any or all of these places? Whole foods: those Marcona almonds they have, chocolate, or tea (I'm sure someone will ask tea questions at some point. Or lotion... yep, could always use more lotion. TJ's: I love most everything they sell. I just got some cleanser pads there that are like $4 a jar; I'm sure I'll be going through these going forward.... Penzeys: Not familiar! Haha, sorry. I'm from Canada - is there anything specifically a witchee might like that is only available here? I wouldn't turn down a maple sugar candy or two, and I hear good things about Laura Secord chocolates. Oh, or maybe you could mail me a young Dave Foley? What are your "fandoms" and would you like a t-shirt from TeeFury if an appropriate one came up? I'm not sure I qualify as belonging to any fandoms (what are the requirements anyway?). I love my favorite TV shows a lot, although i doubt you'd see a Strangers With Candy tee up there anytime soon. Same with Woody Allen, and I'm pretty sure I count as a fangirl for his oeuvre. Oh, I love Labyrinth, now that one is more likely. Do you have an eReader and if so which one? Nope. Do you like candles, or tart burners, or something? If so, what's your favorite scent to burn? I can't burn scented stuff in my house. Although if I could it would be clove orange. I'd suppose I might take an unscented candle, for emergencies, lol. Do you drink alcohol and if so, would you be OK with your witch sending you homemade infused vodka? Also, does your state allow alcohol to be shipped through the mail? Pretty sure it's not legal, but I would totally drink it if it "somehow" arrived... 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? Sure, I'm game for anything you think I would like! 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)? Hmm, a cowl, gloves, beret/loose knit cap, or scarf (the longer the better) would be worn with pride! There's nothing like homemade. 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? Haha, I' sure BF would be happy to dispose of any non-chocolate, non-oniony treats! He doesn't actually know I'm doing SW yet, come to think of it... 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. Sure, and recipe ideas would surely be needed! Haha. 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? Yum! How would you feel about a taste of (insert witch location here) box Aw, that sounds like a cute idea. I may be stealing this... Last year, my wonderful witch Alethia adopted a bat for me from batworld.org, a bat rescue and sanctuary. Bat's World Would you be interested in having a bat adopted in your name? Maybe not a bat... I think I would prefer a cat! Or other animal... Some of your favorite artists? Classic and modern? I'll have to come back and update this gradually, maybe into its own post... Classic: Bosch Van Gough Dutch still-lifes (I forget the name for this kinda art, boo.) Mary Cassat Manet Modern: Dadaism (various) Dali Magritte Kandinsky Hopper Frida Khalo Andy Warhol Keith Haring Takashi Murakami Mark Ryden Miss Kika: http://www.japanla.com/detail.php?design=2963 http://www.japanla.com/detail.php?design=3057 KI-Bei Badgirl: http://www.japanla.com/detail.php?design=3026 Audrey Kawasaki 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? I can't choose one! Maybe after I take a break from researching the above question, lol. 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? Hm... Alice maybe? Envy is my favorite GC so far, and I do have a bottle of that one... 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? YES, finally a question I know my answer for. Lately I've become obsessed with Rainbow Honey. I've ordered some minis and full sizes from the Equestria collection - mostly because every mini convinces me I need its full-size sibling. I love a few Rescue Beauty colors, but never get around to ordering - although when Aqua Lilly is re-released I may bite that $20.00 bullet. It's not indie, but I'm very sad I missed NARS' special shade Lal Mirchi from their Thakoon collab. It involves my bf's name, so I really wanted to get that one! Whaa. I love Zoya too and have a looot of their colors. I keep meaning to get some more Butter London shades, but always miss the BOGO deals. I really want Thames, Bluey and Henley Regatta one of these days. Stuffed things: yea or nay? Yea I think. As in food or animals? LOL. I want to get a Squishable one of these days. There's a toy store I walk by once a week, on my way to my therapist, that has a bunch in the window. I admit it can be a very tempting sight on those vulnerable days! 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? Sounds fun! I'm a lazy-ass cook, so... I live near this very cool Retro store (you can order online too) - are there things from it that would make you squee if your witch sent them? Hmmm. they have retro aprons... and dresses. Oh, why did I just look? If there are no "witchy" shops near you, is there anything I can pick up for you from Enchantments? Well I'm no witch, and I don't really do spellwork or anything. Although if there were some special red candles or the like that happened to come your way, I'd have use for 'em. 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 Powerthat has quite a wide selection.I can usually find that kinda stuff at the co-op, but feel free to send anything you think I'd like! What's one random thing you really like and one random thing you really dislike? Like: red pandas Dislike: moths (scary!) Witchee, what are your favorite quotes? I may need to come back to this. I have some listed on Goodreads and my FB though, LOL. Who likes Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses? No, please, no. But, all the gross "cherry cordial" ones are belong to me, however! Do you Ravelry? Nope. Who here would be happy to get a lil' sumthin sumthin from Adagio Teas? I'm not familiar, but I love earl grey, and anything w/lavender... 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? Just learning musical instruments like guitar, really... and there's not a tutorial in the world that teaches me that kinda patience and perseverance, sadly. I has a lazy. Would you be interested in beer, wine, or other specialty beverages from your Witch's area? Hell to the MF'ing YES! But, Witch, take note: Red wine and me aren't friends. I think I have an allergy. But beer or other bev's, yes! a) Are you OK with "special deliveries"? b)Is the address in your questionnaire the best place to reach you for said deliveries? 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? a) I love flowers, but I hate secondhand embarrassment, so please nothing from a person wearing an "outfit." yes I think so c) sure Do you have any Fall or Halloween traditions? Not really, sadly. Like, going to sbux at least once for a fall drink treat. And trying to find something fun to do for Halloween, even though it's on a weeknight this year, SUCK. I live near a Mast General Store. It has lots of vintage-y toys, southern foods (jams, jellies, spices) and vintage candy. Is there anything I can get for you? have no idea offhand, but will try to take a look later. Yes I am evilly updating this thing at work. 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? EHF would be lovely to try! Ninjas or Pirates? My Jolly Roger BPTP pants tell me to go with Pirates... yarr. Do you lust after some new socks/tights? ALWAYS looking for cool/unusual plus-size tights (like a SPANX D for reference...) or cute socks! I can throw some on a wishlist somewhere if it helps you... dear witchee, would you, could you use an electric candle warmer? No thanks witch dear. 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? Um, both, somehow. I think Disney's kinda evil, but I absolutely LOVE Alice in Wonderland. So anything related to that is good. Also, Maleficent's pretty cool, and I'm forever sad that I missed out on her branded Disney Villains/MAC items... yeah anyway. Witchee, will you be gone from your normal mailing address at any point during the round? Not planning on it. I'm about to be near a Lush store next week, is there anything you might like from there? ALL THE THINGS A small Ocean Salt or I Love Juicy would be lovely! are there any if MeiLin's books (e-book or print) you'd be interested in? Sure, I think Lovers and Beloveds is the first in her series right? I don't have an e-reader though, so I can only do book-books. Tell me of your taste preferences. Dry/sweet? Red/white? Lager/ale/porter/stout? Fruit? Spice? Hops? Sour (brettanomyces, etc)? Sweet, white, stout, fruit, rich, chocolately.. this is all in reference to drinks, right? I love trader joe's oatmeal stout, for beer. 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? Um, allll of them. Bath and body stuff? Unscented body lotions, and face creams for sensitive/acne prone skin. Nutritional? Always looking for throat, allergy, asthma and throat/voice care related items! Haus of Gloi is offering custom perfumes - would you like one? What would your ideal blend be? I'm not sure, so pass. Any favorite Bath & Body Works scents/products? Sadly, I can't do with BBW stuff. They are too scented for my household. Sorry witch! Name one movie you keep meaning to buy, but just never get around to getting? Erm, my Amazon DVD wishlist is marked with priority... but... maybe Gilda, or Roxanne? Or The Man With Two Brains, I don't think that's actually on there! Movies that you love but forgot to put in your questionaire? Hmm... 200 Cigarettes, Eternal Sunshine, Joy Luck Club, Romeo and Juliet, Roman Holiday, Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day, Mermaids, Bring it On, Breakfast at Tiffany's (except for the racism ), Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland... I got a million of 'em. Some most of these I own already (I have a fairly large DVD library), so feel free to check with me, if the question involves actual copies of movies... As you can tell, I'm into girly movies, haa. Songs that you keep meaning to buy but never get round to it? Lily Allen's albums, MIA's Paper Planes, the new Jack White album all come to mind... Put your iPod/MP3 player/what-have-you on random and list the first 10 songs it plays! Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, The Beatles Jack-Ass, Beck Minus, Beck Scalding Hot Coffee Rag (ghost world soundtrack) Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie, Joanna Newsom Bulletproof, Rilo Kiley Hotwax, Beck Derelict, Beck Break So Easy, Johnathan Rice Got to Get You Into My Life, The Beatles I used my phone, so I don't have that wide a selection here, lol. forum buddies? *cocks head over in the direction of Glambie* She knows me best, but she's also a very busy bee these days, JSYK! Candy Corn? Without gelatin, YES. Although my teeth may see things differently... I live in Japan. Anything you would be interested in from there? Only AL THE THINGS. Seriously, I love almost anything that's kawaii. I also love Sanrio/Hello Kitty/my Melody stuff - not completely indiscriminately, but I do love and casually collect all that cutesy stuff. I love cute Japanese stickers and stationary too! I know there's lots of kooky snacks/candy in different flavors available, and I'm pretty much game for anything within my dietary restrictions! If you have cats, do they like catnip toys? Yes, I believe they do. How do you feel about wearable knitted lace? Shawls, wraps, and the like? It sounds lovely, does that mean I'd get to wear a mantilla like Dorothy Lamour? If you are on Livejournal, would you appreciate LJ stuff like paid time, custom userheads, stuff like that? I wouldn't have a use for it, but thanks! LJ is my little dying herd member... teh sad. if you are into tarot, what is your favorite card? Despite having a couple of sets (one hello kitty, even) I'm not into tarot. However I do like the look of those Loteria cards (La Pera and La Sirena especially). would you like your own set of handmade rune stones or worry stones? I probably wouldn't have much use, but thanks anyway! Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cider, or none of the above? OMG, all, except I don't make my own coffee at home. Gum, hard candy, soft candy, or none of the above? I like gum (SPRY is my favorite), and I think overall I prefer soft candy to hard. Loose tea or tea bags? Do you need anything for your loose tea? (Filters, presses, etc.) Tea bags only please! Do you do Goodreads or LibraryThing or a site like that? If so, can I see your to-read list, please? Here it is. I was trying to remove the few I do already own, but might have missed a few cuz the site started going screwy on me. Are you a gamer (of any sort - video, casual, tabletop) and are there any games you want? Tabletop/casual/board games are a lot of fun and I'd take more of those! I just played Catchphrase last night which was pretty fun... apples to apples maybe, or the game of things. Would a Starbucks gift card make you happy or do you prefer your local place? My local place (the grind) probs doesn't sell these online, but there are a million starbux by my work (along with pete's and tully's). I'd totally use one! Would you be interested in BPTP CANDY? Sure, maybe just to try it... CUSTOM-Made Pottery?? yea or nay? That sounds heavy to ship! But I'd take a mug for sure, or a soap dish (a big one would be useful). Maybe in a blue? Zombies; Yay or Nay? Shoot 'em in the head? I dunno. I saw pictures of Disney princess zombies from Dragon*Con that looked pretty sweet... WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH YOUR ASS OFF!!! movies, comedians, black humor, your partner, a comic strip? what? I wonder if I can post videos here... a great many things, but I love Patton Oswalt for starters. Also Kids in the Hall (and their movie Brain Candy), Strangers With Candy, Arrested Development... you know, twisted stuff like that. 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? Probably a knee-length dress and tights, cute flats, hair tied back, or worn down with a barrette or two to contain the madness. Light sparkly makeup and hopefully shiny sparkly nailpolish, if it's something I've been planning in advance. 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? Possibly Nordstrom, if I can't do it at an online store like Dorothy Perkins, Fred Flare or 6PM. Studded or spiked black flats or boots, interesting dark or black tights, stockings or leggings. Chunky, sparkly bracelet and necklace. A solid color dress of some sort, maybe a solid cardigan (Kate Spade makes some pretty ones), or a nice, long dark coat to go on top of it all. And maybe a sparkly barrette or headband for the hair too. 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). -New dark grey skinny jeans (in a US 16) from Dorothy Perkins -These babies -And, since I'm pretty sure I dreamed about it last night, this sucker right here ^Hm, apparently I really want new clothes/accessories. Note to self, must save up something for these soon. 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? I had to look it up, since I'm not familiar with this con, but I FUCKING LOVE MALCOLM MCDOWELL. Do with that information as you will! What is your holy grail "I'd kill to just have one drop in an imp" bpal scent? LOL, is it good or bad that I don't have one? Are there any existing Weenies that you have your eye on, but haven't gotten around to getting? I was't able to budget in any weenies this fall. Although I may need something from the Post when they update. If I could have, I would have signed up for decants of: -The Perilous Parlor -Boo -Fizzy Jack o'Lantern -Ghost House -Mango-infused Pumpkin Chai Latte -Pomona -Suck It -and Mariposita, even though it's not a Weenie per se. Yes, I like the sweeties! New answers 09-24-12 (maybe I should be dating these? :/) My Little Pony... Cute or meh? Cute, in a comforting, brainless sort of way. TBH I routinely talk myself out of ordering a bunch of cute shirts (and a Twilight Sparkle hoodie) from Welovefine about once per month. Do you have a problem with nudes???Male or Female? Well, that completely depends. I think "not terrifying" is a good keyword to keep in mind on the subject, when making that decision. Do you subscribe to any sample boxes, and if so, which ones? Would you like to receive some samples? (perfume, eco/"green," skin care, hair, music downloads, cosmetics, soap...) Nope. I'd be into a cosmetics one but it's not super high on my list either. Lip balm - tube or tin? I can work with either but prefer tube. Are you interested in audiobooks? If so, any specific titles? I have 3-4 of these on file form Audible.com that I haven't listened to yet, so I should probably refrain from adding to the collection right now. Bar soaps with some scrubby bits, yes or no? That's fine. Would you like to receive a journal or sketchbook? How about other pretty paper goods like post-its, notepads, bookmarks, letter paper/envelopes? Yes. Would you like a pair of knitted socks? Sure, anything you knit me, I'll find use for! ThinkGeek: anything interesting to you on there? Not desperately. This is more my BF's terrain, although they do have some cool light machines as I recall. Do you need any small electronic gadgets like flash drives and the like? I already have one very cute, Hello Kitty blind-box flash drive. However, since I can't burn anything to disc on my godforsaken old macbook, I'd take another throwaway, just-in-case flash drive.

    Has anyone mentioned Gorg's Garden? I don't know how that would be in terms of soil prominence/dominance, but it sounds like it might be your kind of thing.

    Help me choose a Blue Moon! (CHOSEN)

    A Blue Moon 21st birthday? I say go for all 3! But if that's not on the table, I think your safest bet would be Blue Moon based on what you say here. This is my birthday month as well, and I'm very tempted by Beth's blend myself!

    In the vial: Soap. On wet: Soap. Soapsoapsoapsoapsoapsoap. And a little bit of spicy radish dust. And just a hint of plastic diapers? Drydown: What is that spicy, soapy radish flavor I keep feeling in my mouth? Oh, it’s a line of Doozers, marching dutifully through my nasal passages. This is… not working for me.

    In the decant: Wow, smells so sweet and pretty. Chocolate and vanilla together + fruit are definitely my thing! The more sweet and creamy the better, and this has a nice tartness from the fruit (quince is citrus, right?), where it starts smelling like creamy chocolate dipped citrus fruits. Just from sniffing, I sort of want a bottle already. On wet: An immediate burst of creamy sweetness and tart tangy fruitiness. I like this very much. After a few moments the chocolate vanilla creamy yumminess starts to fade and there is a bit more sharp high-pitched fruit. I guess that’d be the quince, and the pear and fig starting to come out. It’s starting to smell a bit artificial on my skin now. I still like it, but I’m getting a hint of –dare I say it- potpourri? But it was so lovely in the vial! WTF, skin? This is why I need a scent locket. Drydown: Potpourri/artificial fruit city. Ugh, I really hate when my skin does this. Must try scenting the clothes or something while I scheme a way to buy me a scent locket. Because the chocolate and vanilla creamy fruit stage was so, so nice! And totally gone now.

    Pink Lace, if you can get your hands on it, is sweet like strawberry incense.
