    SW 2014 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

    1. I wonder what a potential witchee would think about being bombarded with PUMPKINS in various formats. Because my current obsession just may last long enough to be of use in spoiling.....but I know wouldn't be appreciated by everyone. Would you appreciate it?!? I love pumpkin, though the Lab's pumpkin note is not my friend really (Though I do like snakes in the pumpkin patch and bliss in the pumpkin patch and pumpkin queen.) I prefer to eat it, or smell it in a candle form. I don't usually do B&BW, and I didn't mention this in the ?aire because I forgot, but they add something to their soap that is really really bad, starts with a T or something, ugh now i have to look it up. hold on. Triclosan. There. found it, it's really not good for you so please please don't send me anything with this in it. I will hate to, but I will toss it :/ 2. I currently have a CSA and my significant other is perpetually out of town for work, so I've been doing a lot of canning and baking with my vegetables. How do people feel about canned good (pickles, salsa, etc) and vegetal baked goods (squash bread, zucchini bread). Yum. Yum yum yum. 3. Trading Post wants? Not many to be honest, though I have a feeling that might change once the weenies go live. Stay tuned. 4. What direct sellers do you not like and would prefer not to get things from? And also feel free to list any retail brands you really don't like. I'm not sure, I don't like avon and mary kay. I prefer brands that are not tested on animals. 5. How about y'alls coffee and tea preferences? Tea makes me happy, and I have an Adagio wishlist that Vennah would be able to tell you about (I'm not sure it's linkable unless you're friends with me on Adagio, but I could be wrong) 6. Do you cook? Would kitchen accessories make you happy? I love to cook, I don't know what my kitchen needs besides more storage space (Which I'm sure you're not able to help me with...) I keep thinking of stuff but never write it down, so next time I think of something I'll write it down so that I have something to put here. -Pizza cutter! -Ice cream scoops in various sizes for baking. -cookie cutters from warp zone. 7. How do people feel about creative endeavours? Would you like to receive one? Or supplies to make your own? What do you like? Drawings, stories, poems? Dude, get creative! I love to knit, and do some sewing, I want to learn how to quilt, and if you were to draw me something I'd probably hang it up, I love custom pieces! 8. What culture or country (doesnt have to be modern) do you feel an innate connection with? What about it makes it special to you? England and Japan. I want to LIVE in England, and Japanese culture and food is just so fantastic to me, I'd love to live there too, but something about England just calls to me. I'm half English so maybe that's it? 9. Is there any sort of art commission you would like: cartoony, pin-up, fantasy, realistic, etc? If so, what subject would you like drawn (a picture of you, a character, a loved one or pet)? Too many. I'd love a decent Sansa Stark picture, and maybe one of me, as a pin up. Anything with Leon S. Kennedy is gold too. Also, Rumplestiltzkin in a realistic style because I don't think there's enough of him in the world. (From Once Upon A Time.) Maybe a picture of Toothless being cute? (How to Train Your Dragon) 10. What do you find yourself doing for fun in your free time? What are your main hobbies and interests? I internet a LOT. also knit, and read. I love reading. And netflix. I love Downton Abbey, not sure I mentioned this on my ?aire, but I do love that show. 11. Table-top gaming? If yes, what kind, edition, etc? Gaming accessories you long for? Nope. 12. DVD movies or games that you wish would magically appear in your hands? Can they be used, through Amazon? Downton Abbey, Once Upon A Time, any of my favourite shows or movies. (Pretty sure I don't have any of them on dvd, and if I do, I don't have access to them atm :( 13. What kind of snacks or candy from other countries/states would you like to try? Like to Try? Not sure. I'm usually open to anything, love salty sweet. 14. Do you have a favorite internet meme, character or pop culture fandom? I'm on Tumblr under Autumnslioness-dearie, it's mostly Sailor Moon, Once Upon a Time, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Marvel, yea. I'm into the fandoms 15. Do you have a Facebook profile (or other social media) that you are comfortable linking to aid your witch in stalking? Please note whether you are willing to add BPALers as friends. I can be found on the bpal guspers fb page, my name is in the list. 16. Anybody interested in something from RCCC, whether it's con-exclusive merch or from a particularexhibitor or artist? Anything of my fandoms would be cool 17. How important to you is regular contact / chatter with your witch? I love high contact, but I do understand that people have lives. 18. Do you like puzzles/riddles/treasure hunts and that sort of thing? Sometimes, I'm not so good at them, but I do like them. 19. If you were to receive music, would you want a physical CD or digital versions? Either one is ok with me. 20. Whats a current problem/annoyance you have that could be remedied but you havent had time to address it? Unpacking and organizing my apartment. Otherwise, I can't think of anything to be honest. 21. How do you feel about having some sort of trinket to carry around for good luck/wishes? i.e. a small figurine, symbol, card, coin Oh yes! I love trinkets 22. Are you superstitious about anything? Any things you can't have in your house for that reason--bad associations? Nothing comes to mind 23. For the vegetarians and vegans: How do you feel about things (say, marshmallows or gummy candy) made with vegan gelatin or other typically-animal-derived-but-not-in-this-instance products? no applicable 24. Ok, so we've covered pumpkin. How do you feel about the other fall classic apples? YUM! Twilight Eyes brags about making Honey Crisp dried apples every year, I'm jealous, and have always wanted some! 25. Do you have any fabric or skin-contact aversions? Don't really like polyester, and not a fan of cotton yarn 26. How do you feel about Christmas/Yule ornaments? Sure! Why not? 27. How do you feel about Hello Kitty, and Hello Kitty accessories (including mugs, cups, etc)? I MUCH prefer Chococat! 28. If you had a week free where you could learn anything, with no financial restrictions, what would you want to study? Languages, Japanese, Russian, French, Though experimenting with science would be great, I didn't take it past the required courses in high school so I'd love to learn more, it fascinates me. 29. Do you enjoy poetry? Who are your favorite poets and what type of subject matter do you like? Not much to be honest. 30. Would you enjoy receiving something related to a favorite Disney character? LOVE Disney! and I LOVE the princesses! I don't know who my favourite is though, I tend to love them all! 31. How do you feel about cute things as decorations or accessories? (Example: Would you enjoy this stationery - or do you prefer elegant/creepy/neutral stuff?) Love Kawaii! (Japanese for cute) 32. What is something you'd really like to recieve from your witch? Please be as specific as possible - no, "Oh whatever she thinks is fine!" Remember how I mentioned those apple things from Twilight? If she's doing them again this year, those. Honestly. I've been wanting them for YEARS! 33. Go to your music source of choice - on random or shuffle setting if possible - & share with us the 10 most recent songs/artists. I will do this when I get home, though I don't know if I'll be able to do it right away, I have to fix up my music as we just cleaned our computer a few months ago and I haven't done that yet. 34. Tarot cards, rune stones and/or other divination tools yay or nay? YES! I've been dying for a set of Stephanie Pui-Min-Law (spellcheck?) tarot cards. I've never done runes but I'm always up for anything divination. I have a pendulum that I should pull out of hiding. 35. Do you have a Celeb crush? or someone who you just can't get enough of....other than your SO Yes. I am absolutely GAGA for Hiddles right now (Tom Hiddleston) he seem's like he'd be a great friend. Also love Robert Carlyle, and I love love love Kieara Knightly and Anne Hatheway. And honestly too many to count. 36. Glitter? are you okay with it, or hate it like the plague? Stuff with glitter on it? OK, Loose glitter in the package that falls when you open it? Please no. 37. If there was another time period other than now that described your style/aesthetics, what would it be? I honestly don't think there is one that describes me because I really don't have style, but if I COULD have style, I'd love 1800 French, like the opulent castles of Marie Antoinette, or maybe turn of the 20th century English (a la Downton Abby at the beginning of the series) 38. If you had to pick one or two quotes to live by, what would it be and why? There are no miracles for those that have no faith in them. - French Proverb If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it. - Albert Einstein 39. Do you prefer physical books? CD books? eBooks? If eBooks do you have preferred format, kindle/nook/kobo/PDF/ePub/ect? eAudio? All the books! Ebooks (epub goes on my ipad and my phone easier) but I also like physical books. 40. Smut! Yes or no? If yes, what kink, er, kind? I'm a big smut reader, I will pretty much read anything, but I'm not big on anal. I read smutty historical romances like they're candy. 41. Ebooks! Yes or no? See 39, but yes. 42. If you were to get a custom bottle from House of Gloi made for you what notes would create your perfect blend? I know I asked this, but I'm not 100%. Something with chocolate that's for sure. It doesn't seem like they have current as a note, but they do have thyme, maybe Brown sugar, chocolate, cream, and thyme? 43. If your witch were to take a photograph (or paint or whatever) of something just for you, what would it be? Landscape? Flower? Critter? Something to illustrate a favorite quote? SURE! I love Sparrows, crows, ravens, and love rocky landscapes, and forests, and leaves changing, LOVE LOVE LOVE peonys. they're my favourite flower. 44. What is your favorite Halloween animal or other symbol/decoration? Black cat or Crow/Raven. Also like spiders. 45. Makeup, especially of the indie variety. Nail polish, nail wraps, eyeshadow, lipstick/gloss, etc. Y/N? Specific preferences (color, finish, product, brand, etc.)? LOVE nail polish (Go for 3 and 4 free brands) And I love a lot of the Indie nail polish producers. (Smitten, Jindie Nails) Other makeup not so much. I'd love to play with mineral make up but I rarely ever wear makeup so it might be pointless. 46. How do you feel about profanity and off-color humor? I swear quite a bit, and tend to laugh at the most inappropriate jokes. 47. I make hairsticks...would you like/use them? I would, but my hair is just too short right now 48. Does anyone here LARP? If so, what kind of LARP? And what kind of character do you play? Nope. 49. Would you completely freak out if I sent you a chocolate covered scorpion or some other food oddity? This includes things like 'bacon powder' from thinkgeek.com. I'd probably look at it until it went bad, and wouldn't eat it. Kinda not my thing. 50. This has kind of been covered, but, are you ok with receiving canned jam (from a veteran jammer!) and if so, what flavors would you like and not like? I LOVE jams and jellies! I love pretty much all kinds. 51. Let's talk nail polish. What colors do you love? Hate? Which brands are you dying to try? Have you ever used indies? Do you like glitter? Any textures to avoid (glitter, sand, etc)? As long as they're 3-4 free brands go nutz! I am inlove with jelly bases and halographic polishes right now, though I do like glitter (Round glitter is my fave, but not many companies use it.) Something crocodile is fantastic, damn I'll have to look that one up, she uses Round Glitter a lot, but doesn't ship to Canada so it's VERY hard for me to get my hands on some. Also, I want to try Crows Toes Gomez and absolution (Potion master) 52. How do you feel about getting a special Halloween plushie? My first reaction was Sure! and then I realized I have a TON in my daughter's room and any stuffy I get will end up there eventually, and we SO do not need more in her room 53. I'm in Japan, anything specific you might want from the land of the rising sun? Anything and Everything *g* I love Japan and will enjoy anything sent. I will mention that I love bento boxes, anything sailor moon, probably any foods that can be shipped. I posted in the thread using someone else's answer as my own but I can't find it. 54. Are there any GC scents that you know you love, but for whatever reason, keep putting off buying bottles of? Actually at this point, I think I have all the GC's that I love in bottle form. 55. I know not everyone likes Lush products, but if you do, which Lush items would you like to get from your Witch? Please no Lush, I boycott them. 56. Is there anywhere (in the US) that you are dying to get away to? Also when would you be able to get away. Would this even be something you were interested in? If so, go look at the Southwest sale for routes and dates and times. As much as this idea sounds awesome, I have no vacation time. 57. If you are ok with receiving t-shirts, what size are you, do you prefer tissue tees, normal crew tees, babydoll etc? I love t shirts! x-large, babydolls, or tissue tees. 58. THINKGEEK!

Zombies, yes or no? NO, NO, NO, please NO. 60. Would you like arm warmers/fingerless gloves? If so, what length? just beyond the wrist, almost to the elbow, full sleeves? Oh yes, I love them! any length really, but to the elbow is great! 61. Do you feel a particular affinity for a specific animal/s? Otters, Lions, Crows, Ravens, Sparrows, wolves 62. Anyone have any Paintbox Soapworks loves? YES! The sorbettos! Nekisse, Heima, and Punkie night are favourites! 63. How would you feel if your witch or a minion of your witch showed up in person at your house with goodies? Thrilled? Annoyed? Completely creeped out? Do we know each other? If yes, and we've met Sure! I surprised my witchee once after making plans with her husband. It was funny I had even gone shopping with her for our witchee's while visiting her earlier in the round. 64. Do you have a ravelry account? Tell me about your yarn obsessions. Yes! My ravelry username is autumnslioness, I love yarn! I may need to destash at some point actually, but I do love knitting 65. Sock Dreams, yay or nay? YAY! I like knee highs and Tabi socks! 66. Knitted items like scarves, shawls, dishclothes....yay or nay? Favorite fibers? Favorite colors? I love soft soft wool, ambers, jewel-tones, olive green looks great on me (I love it) browns. 67. Is your Amazon WL up-to-date? Nope, sorry witch, I haven't actually used it in ages. I tend to use Pintrest for my wl lately. 68. If you were to receive handmade caramels, would it matter if they were made with raw cream (unpasteurized)? ALL THE CARAMELS! I'm pretty sure raw is illegal here so if you were to make some and send them I'd feel like a bad girl 69. Would you enjoy getting a sampling of quality incense taken from various sources? Are there types of incense you know you don't like? Would you want a burner for loose incense and a few charcoals to get you started with that, or would you rather stick to simpler types? No thank you, incense tends to create migraines. 70. I know we already had a question about needed kitchen accessories, but what about spices? ALL THE SPICES! I love spices! I got a particularly fantastic packet of cinnamon a few rounds ago. I'm pretty good with Single spices atm, but if you have a favourite blend, I'd love to share in your love! 71. Would you like handmade stationary or cards? How about a quill pen? Sure! 72. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being "gimme that ghost pepper!" and 1 being "oh, that's a bit too much black pepper for me" Where is your heat tolerance? mild to medium, it depends on the type of heat. I tend to like spicier things but not super stupid spicy. 73. What is your favorite type of Halloween candy? peanut butter cups. 74. Do you need or want any cosy footwear, like fluffy slippers, or slipper socks etc? Actually I wouldn't mind a pair, this apartment gets colder then my old one, and it might be nice to have something for my feet when they're cold. Though I have to say that I have carpet in my apartment so preferably something with non slip treads. 75. What do you most look forward to each Fall? The leaves, the smells, the colder weather, the colours, the apple cider, the pumpkin everything, apple butter, pants. (in place of shorts) or tights, which I wish I wore more of. 76. What gadgets do you use in your everyday life and would you like a cool case for them - with your favourite fandom or artwork or saying? I have an ipad with a magnetic dust cover thing, but I'd love a cute little case to put it in when I put it in my purse. 77. Are there any beauty accessories you need or would like? For example make-up brushes, facial brushes or eyelash curlers. I could use a new eyelash curler, but it's not a desperate situation. 78. Would you be disappointed to get one big box, or would you prefer a bunch of little ones? And would you be disappointed if your witch actually had it together early and sent it to you sooner than later? How ever my witch wants to do this is completely up to them 79. Stores are putting out their halloween PJs and undies! Would you be happy to get any in a package? And if so, what size? For PJ pants, do you like cotton or flannel? Yes! Cotton! Underwear is a bit trickier, but I like the bikini cut, and tend to take the xl size, and only in cotton. The PJ pants are the same, cotton and xl, and I love all the weenie fabrics! 80. Do you like M&Ms? Yes! My favourite are the Peanut butter ones, but I love trying all the new flavours 81. How about wax melts? I have so many and no wax melter :/ 82. Would you like a subscription for Spotify? I don't even know what this is.... 83. What scents from the Lillith update would you like to try? (Not so) patitent (mini) magdalene, Avunculus, Blueberry picking, Lily Witch, Venustas, Very Pink Surprise Cake. I haven't ordered decants yet, but I will be ordering those, So no real need for my witch to send any unless they got a decant themselves and didn't like it. 84. Would you be interested in receiving a box of sugar cube skulls? Yes! Sure! Though, I can not for the life of me figure out if they're flavoured or not. I must be blind or something. 85. Skin care routine? Fave cleanser? Toner? Moisturizer? What about body lotions? Any particular brand or scent? Lip balms? Yay or nay? Lip balms, yes, I have a brand I love and I totally forgot it at home today, so I can't tell you the name, but I can always use more. I'll update this when I get home and let you know which Etsy Seller it is that I adore. I don't mind body lotions, but I rarely use them I could however use another cuticle balm and deep conditioning hand salve for the winter. 86. Is there anything you would like from Salem MA (mugs, keychains, postcards, etc.or witchy supplies like incense, candles, books)? All the Salem stuff! I went once when my parents and I went to Massachusetts a few years back, and I want to go back. The history fascinates me. 87. Would you be interested in any of the items in LisaNut's etsy shop? She has some nice multicoloured scarves 88. Spiders (as in cute knit kind) yes or no? I adore spiders, I think they're awesome, and love looking at Orb Spiders, they're so fascinating. Anything small cute and knit will be stolen by my daughter 89. Pillows (the mostly decorative type)? Sure! I had to toss all my older pillows because of staining and them getting caught in the rain, so we don't have any pillows for our couches, which are grape purple. 90. Any kind of bags - big, small, medium, purse, grocery, etc? I can always use tote bags with something cool printed on them. I have fabric to sew up a bag for myself and I have yet to clean up the craft room and dig out my sewing machine to get that going. 91. Is there anything special coming up in your life? Today, Sept 22, is my 6 year anniversary. I'm going for sushi! 92. Which one scent would you want from each of the following updates: Metamorphosis, Lilith and GC? I've been dying to try JailBait recently, I have no idea why. It's probably all floral, but I love the Bubblegum note in Bubblegum and roses, so I really want to try jailbait. As for the other two, I'm not sure on the Metamorphosis update, it's been a while since I looked at that even. And the one I want the most from the Lilith update is a tie between (Not So) Penitent (Mini) Magdaline and Avunculus. 93. Are you interested in anything from NYCC? I think I missed the boat on that one 94. Would something from the Tokyo Game Show (e.g. postcards, fans) possibly interest you? This one too. 95. Would you enjoy any of these couple rings? Or anything from the same store's Halloween collection? So I answered this in thread, I really like the cuff bracelets, not so much the couple rings. I love the "All Magic comes with a price, dearie" One, obviously since I'm a dearie and either quote about Donna from Doctor Who. 96. If you imbibe at all ... preference between: wine/beer/cocktails and then glassware and/or bar-ware? cocktail gadgetry? Books on the subject/recipes? would you want sample bottles of local/regional/small batch craft spirits if they were home decanted and labeled? Nah, I rarely drink 97. Would you like some chai, lemon, rose water or other flavored sugar cubes? SURE! Anything, I love rose water! and Chai! 98. Jamberry nail wraps? Sure! I've never used them, but would love to try some! (Nail wraps period, they don't have to be Jamberry Though to be honest, this one is awesome! : Vintage flowers 99. If you had to choose one currently available book (used-but-obtainable counts if you do used) costing $20 or under for your Witch to buy for you, what would it be? There probably is one, let me think about it. 100. Are there five things under $25 at Birchbox you would like? I'll take the time to check this out sometime today, but apparently they have simple syrup? I'd love some of that in probably any flavour. But let me check it out https://www.birchbox.com/shop/featured/25-and-under-1/royal-rose-simple-syrup http://www.birchbox.com/shop/featured/25-and-under-1/benefit-cosmetics-theyre-real-pushup-liner Not much really jumped out at me actually lol! 101. Do you want anything from the Fatherhood update at the Post? Dear witch, I've already taken care of this 102. Street art! Into it? Not into it? Meh? I think it's cool, but not really into it to be honest. 103. If you could only pick one note that you love (e.g. Vanilla, Orange, Lavender, Rose) & you could only wear/have perfume, etc in that note, what would it be? My first thought was 'Chocolate/cocoa' so even though I know there would be days that I wouldn't want to smell like that (thus the love of bpal a different scent every day!) Chocolate/cocoa is probably my favourite note.
  2. Friday July 5/13 Anything from Villainess that strikes your fancy, either from their update or from the GC? I have an update to my Villainess wants! I will put it here and then update my WL blog post with it. Smack: Birth Rite Crushed Iced Cocoa Quick or Dead Scintilating Some more (smack) Soap: Three Cakes Smooch: Decadence Crushed Ginger Snapped Paradise Misplaced Scintillating Krakatoa Perfume: Both sets of the Wicked- Samples Whipped in any of the scents listed above or Silk and Cyanide Thursday July 4/13 If I wanted to include something for your fluffball, what would be good, and what should I stay away from? Would homemade treats be something you'd like for your dog/cat? Tenou loves toys, he'll tear apart a stuffed toy, but that's part of the fun. He does like treats though, but please the more natural the better. He loves homemade treats. The cats don't really get toys because Tenou steals them. If you get a long weekend this weekend... what are you doing with it? Staying in? Going out? Family? Friends? If you don't get a long weekend, are you OK with that, or a little sad? (If you are Canadian, apply this to last weekend). I spent it with my parents, and Saturday was spent with my grandmum and cousins. I was a little sad my husband couldn't come, but that happens when you work weekends. Would you be interested in getting a kombucha starter and instructions on how to use it to easily make your own fermented, probiotic tea drink? Yes, I really would. Wednesday July 3/13 Anything interesting from the new Paintbox Soapworks update for you? Already added to my Etsy wl What about recycled sari silk yarn, witches and witchees? Sure. Sooo, the Blooddrop update (Aviary and Summer Simplicities). Anything you'd like from there?Ok, so I've never tried them before, so I've made a list of their update and their regular scents and will add this to my main WL. Kea, Kestrel, Magpie, Lemon Cake, Pink Vanilla, Epona, Bisou, Broom Stick, Bûche de Noël, Cafe Oblique, Citrouille, Delicieuse, Delightfully Wickedly, Eiffel Tower, Pumpkin, Sultrylicious, Dixie Elouise Adelaide Deschamps’ Perfectly Legal and Innocuous Kissing Cake, Frau Von Schtinklestein’s Partially Completed Barvarian Love Essence. DEAR FIBER AND YARN PEOPLE: I am going back to Paradise Fibers today. They have like almost every type of fiber roving and dye and stuff available. If you're a spinner and have any fiber wishes, what would you like? Dyed or natural? Do you need dye? colors? brand? Since this is from earlier in the week, it's probably no good to answer about PF, BUT, I love lace weight yarn, and sport weight yarn, and I'd love to try spinning, though I really have no idea how to do it. Tuesday July 2/13 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? I watch Family Guy and laugh my ass off. I'd say I have a fairly dirty sense of humour. (I also ADORE Seth MacFarlan, and wouldn't say no if he turned up in my bed ) Do you like puzzles? What kind? Jigsaw, word, etc? Sudoku and number puzzles, I tried those puzzles we were talking about in thread, and I totally sucked.... Monday July 1/13 I know Canadian chips can be different than others, how does "dill pickle" or "ketchup" sound? I am CANADIAN (sorry... ) No need 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 Wow, I have one, Thyme, Chocolate, Tonka and lime leaf, but I do like a bunch of the other notes that I just can't seem to get into a blend correctly... Cake, Oakmoss, Cinnamon sugar, brown sugar, amber, beeswax and honey, red musk, Pear, sweet cream, leather, coconut, clove, blood orange, lychee. Maybe Leather, sweet cream, pear and clove? Or Lychee or... I have no idea, I'm really bad at this QUESTION! Do you like Kickstarter? Are there any projects up that you really like? I have used it in the past, but it's not something I use often. 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. This pillow This Tote This necklace! (Or any Sailor Moon Necklaces from this shop) This Necklace This Locket Pretty much any cookie cutter from this shop! Festival this week -- includes an "encampment" and an art faire. any interest in trinkety things from the encampment or cards/prints from local artists Sure! How do you feel about glitter? does loose glitter make your skin crawl or would you bathe in it? Oh gods, please no loose glitter!!! Do you want/need/like/collect journals? If so, do you prefer lined or unlined? I just use a spiral bound book I can get at the dollar store, so I'm good there. Does the idea of wearing a plant as jewelery give you the warm fuzzies or the heebie jeebies? meh. 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? Sure, I'd be into trying weird flavoured popcorn! I'm up for anything 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. No thank you. 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?

These cases I know in the thread I said I'd love to have the Sarah one, but I really think it's a toss up between Thumbalina and Odette, with Thumbalina taking the lead only every so slightly. Prints though, I'd pretty much love them all! Do you like audiobooks? If so, do you have/would you like to try Audible? (I'm an addict, myself.) No thank you, I'm not a fan of audio books. Chocolate: Love? Hate? Allergic? If love, what are your faves? oh chocolate and I have a loving relationship! I like all chocolate, thought I'm not the keenest on white. I do like white and milk together. I've been a fan of those build your own chocolate bars Wednesday June 26/13 Do you have any long trips coming up? If so, could you use things to occupy yourself? Nope, no travels for me. 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?? I can't think of anything off the top of my head, but gods would I love to go there! Name three things that you could use, but might not necessarily think to get for yourself?

BPTP: Shortbread Snowflakes Bath Oil, Pumpkin Pie bath oil. TAL: Cooling Oil, Emotional Healing, Gainful Employment. I just found out Oreo is launching ones with watermelon flavor in the USA only. Is it something you would enjoy? YES. 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)? I'm pretty much in fandom, but there are a few shows that I love to catch without being in Fandom, How I Met Your Mother, Boardwalk Empire. As for actors I enjoy and would love to see wet help out in a drippy situation, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Keira Knightly, Natalia Tena, Natalie Dormer, Seth MacFarlan, Richard Armatage, Matthew MacFadyen, David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Gary Oldman, Oh the list could probably go on for days So, dear witchee, would you like some Tw*twaffle soap or scent or lotion? Either lotion or Sorbetto if it ever goes live. Has anyone asked about tattoos? Do you love them? Hate them? Have any? Want any? Have and want.

GC Detox, LE Not hard to find: Dark Chocolate and Key Lime Truffle, Mango Lychee Champagne, Dark Chocolate, Lime, and Chocolate Mint (Are those easy to find?) Hard to find LE: Voodoo Queen, Le Pere Fouettard, Candy Butcher If you knit/crochet, what sizes of needles do you need? I need some long ass circulars for this big ass project, that one day I will have all the yarn for and start. I could also use a set of interchangeable circulars, with the different sized cables and different sized needles. I prefer knitting with metal needles (nickle plated or whatever, I just have a really hard tension and metal slides better) What styles of artwork do you like? Art Nouveau, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, my Deviantart favourites also has some ideas for you. If you cook, would you be interested in-hand made spice mixes/rubs? Sure! Would you like mexican vanilla or silver rings/necklaces? Yes. To both. I'd love love love some Mexican Vanilla, and I could definitely use a new silver chain. 20" I believe, (Will double check) and just a plain chain. 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? Fire Dragon Parasol, Heliophobe, and Voluptuary sound nice, but I've never tried her stuff before. I'd be possibly interested in trying a scrub. What is your favorite color? It changes, but right now it's Pink. What is your favorite season? Autumn! If you could live anywhere in the world and money was no object, where would it be? England. Probably London. Or maybe Wales. Somewhere over there. Monday June 24/13 Do you have any symbols or totems that are meaningful to you? Triple Goddess Moon symbol, crows, orb spiders, moons, 7 pointed stars, the number 7 and anything in 7's, foxes/shibas, Siamese cats, owls, specifically barn owls, lionesses (obv.) Sparrows! When you are having a really rough day, what do you like to do/have to make it a little brighter? a treat, icecream or cookies (especially homemade) a bit of good chocolate (vosges is awesome) tea, I have a wide taste in teas, a cheesy smutty romance novel, Sailor Moon (manga, anime or PGSM live action) My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic! A really good homecooked meal, either comfort food or something fantastic. Would you like if your witch sent a regional pop/soda? If so, what type (Root beer, creme soda, cola, citrus-flavored, chocolate-flavored, etc...)? no thanks, I don't drink pop, I don't like the carbonation. Ninjas or Pirates? Pirates Werewolves or vampires? Both! Zombie or Cthulhu? ... Neither 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? What ever my lovely witch would like to do is awesome. 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? Oh yes! Socks, or Amigurumi, or wrist warmers or fingerless gloves or even mittens! I prefer soft natural fibers. I like jewel tones or pinks or autumn colours Sunday June 23/13 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? "You find someone to carry you" was etched onto our wedding cake cutting set. The whole quote is: "Tracey: "When you can't run, you crawl. And when you can't crawl, when you can't do that ... " Zoe: " ... you find someone to carry you."" Also, I'd kinda love a scarf or shirt with "tsukini kawatte oshiokiyo!" either in romanji or Kanji/hirigana. (http://www.wikimoon.org/index.php?title=Tsukini_Kawatte_Oshioki_yo) The link takes you to song lyrics, but it shows the kanji for the title. This can also work for anything my witch would like to knit or crochet or whatever, since I know there was a question about that but I seem to have lost it. Also, STARBUCKS, Yay or Nay? Anything you particularly like? I work at Starbucks, so I don't need anything unless you have a very cool CITY mug, I kinda collect those. What question do you hate to answer? Like someone mentioned in the thread, answering the "How are you" is something I don't like very much mainly because most people asking don't really care, and it's become almost a greeting anymore. There is probably something else that I just can't think of right now. Is there someone on the forums (within SW or not) who knows you really well and might be able to help with stalking? Um, I talk with Fright a lot, and Skyelyric has had me as a swap partner a few times, I'm also chatting with Venneh a lot lately. If you happen to find out who yours is, how much would it bother you? Nope! I'm usually trying to figure it out anyway, I do like the end of round reveal though. Do you use waxmelts or tarts? If so, which ones do you prefer? I want to say yes, but I just don't burn them a lot. We don't really use scented products around the house, if my house stinks, we open a window LOL. Do you enjoy drinking hot chocolate, and would you like stuff to make it with, or to add to it? I do like it, but rarely drink it. If my witch were to find a make from scratch recipe that they could alter that would be awesome. Have you ever tried Spoonfudge? Would you enjoy it if your Witch would send you some? Which of the flavors would you like? Never heard of it, not big on fudge to be honest. What's your opinion on Moonalisa? Any favorites or products you'd like to try? Never heard of this either! If they have bubbling scrubs (like tarty's sorbetto) I'd be interested in trying, but I don't really need another bath and body shop to shop at. 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) The Weenie spiders from last year, I believe every one had a note of death for me. I was especially sad about Orb Weaver Spider. Also, the Halloween: City scents, I loved the idea, but none worked, or they had a note of death. Put your mp3 player/online music/itunes/etc on random and list the next 10 songs here: I don't have any of my music set up right now, which sucks, but I know this question has been asked in years past, so you can check out my previous answers in other blog posts. 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. I think it's my Sailor Moon clutch wallet (that's falling apart! *cries* ) 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? Ideally you want to be able to ship it without it getting damaged, so maybe not too big. But I have a space on my wall right now that has a wall hanging that I could move if I got a big piece with say Leon on it Gift cards/vouchers - yay or nay? If you like them - which stores would you like one for? YAY! Adagio or Sock Dreams, or Etsy Is there anything from Australia you would like? eg: snacks (yes, you can ask for Tim Tams!), books, magazines, memorabilia? I love me some Tim Tams, but I need to lay off the sweets a bit and I tend to eat those by the package full. I wouldn't mind coins, I don't think I have too many from Australia (I collect foreign coins) Do you have any problems with swearing or particularly off-color humor? Nope! What style is your sense of humour? We're very punny in this apartment, my husband is horrible with it. I love Family Guy and Seth McFarlan, and really find his brand of social commentary humour funny. Opinions on table top games, from cards and board games, to dice and rpgs. What do you like? What don't you like? Favorites? Any classics you like? Do you collect any? We don't play too many games here really, I do like card games, and some board games. I like the themed games, like mario monopoloy or the like. I would love any Sailor Moon themed game. 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 probably won't buy anything from the update, but I will put what I'd like to try in my WL. 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? There are a lot, Usagi Tsukino, Donna Noble, Sansa Stark, Twilight Sparkle, and there are more thank likely more. What are the three books you most want to read right now, and which you don't already have? I'm interested in a book called "Guns, Germs and Steel" which is a history of some sort that my brother in law was talking about at Christmas. There's also a Twilight spoof out there, it's called Nightlight: A parody by The Harvard Lampoon. I'll have to think on a third. Would you like something from Empire Edibles? the blossom melts, or the tea ruffles, the hot chocolate on the stick. Not big on fudge, or really caramels. Is there anything small you try to collect from everywhere you visit? Coins! or small denomination paper money. 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 love seeing things from my witch, that gives me an idea of who they are. (copied that from the thread, but hey, it's the truth!) Do you like tarot cards, pendulums and rune stones etc? If so, what type? Yep! I love tarot cards, and would love to find or even make, a sailor moon deck at some point. There was a buffy set that I prepaid for and it was never released, I had a huge sad. I'm not so good with Runes. I also like oracle cards, or goddess cards. I have a bunch, if this is something you're interested in doing for me, let me know and I can write down what I have. What fandoms do you belong to?Sailor Moon, Doctor Who, Game Of Thrones, MLP: Friendship is Magic, Vampire Diaries, Resident Evil What cheers you up? pictures of cats, my daughter, the perfect snack (which changes pretty much on a daily basis...) Sailor Moon, reading a cheesy smutty romance novel. Who or where would you most want to haunt? Who would you least want to be haunted by? I'd love to haunt my husband, I think that would be hilarious. As for least want to be haunted by, I'm not sure. What is the best compliment you have/could receive? When someone eats all the food on their plate when I made the meal, or even compliments the food. Also I feel really good when someone tells me my daughter is beautiful, and then says she looks just like her momma. 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. My friend brought back these black current candies, they were kinda hard, kinda gummy, they were fantastic. I think they're Swedish or uh, the country IKEA is from since I'm having the biggest brain fart EVER right now... Do you like bags? If so, what type (rucksack, clutch, shopping bag) colour and would you like/need a new one? Love bags, prefer something with a long enough strap/s to go over my shoulder, but not long enough to go across my body. zippered or not, pockets or not. For the longest time I was using a tote bag as a purse. (stopped only because I got tired of it.) What's your favourite comfort food(snack or candy etc) and/or drink? TEA. and something salty sweet. Would you be interested in someone writing out for you a favourite recipe, or finding or devising one which they think you'd like? If so, please provide your favourite ingredients, info on how you like to cook/store and use food, and any intolerances - unless all of these are in your questionnaire, or you don't like the idea. (I'm not saying I'd definitely do this, unless someone is keen, and it wouldn't be the only gift). I guess for other witches this might include something like a knitting pattern - not my thing but would you like that? Or indeed would you like a picture created for you (if so what kind) or a story written? (sorry if this feels a bit Spanish Inquisition!) All of these are amazing. If my witch want's to do something like this, I'm completely open to it. we're good with pretty much anything, no intolerances. 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? I've been thinking about this one a lot and I just can't come up with anything... Sorry! 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? I don't think so. What colors/style is your kitchen decor? And do you entertain in your home? Apartment rental cream/white. LOL! I wanted to do a burnt orange and avocado green theme in my kitchen, but it never took off. Are your ears pierced? Yep. Do you like stuffies/stuffed animals/art doll type thingies? If so, any particular type you'd love to get? We have a ton right now, seriously they were not kidding when they said having a kid makes them multiply tenfold. Though, if it were to be an Amigurumi I would LOVE it! (Especially Leon or Donna or Usagi or Sansa or the Hound or a crow or or or...) Switch Witch is, of course, all about you.....but if your Witch was so inclined, are there wee little ones in your home that will get jealous and are just too young to understand why you won't share the love, who maybe need a touch of Witchee love all their own, to distract them while you hide all your lovelies?!? I have a tiny bug, she's 9 months, and she's getting in to EVERYTHING. My witch doesn't have to send anything for her, but if she wants to that would be lovely. 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 Kinda? I don't really read them on a regular basis, but I like The Mary Sue, Mommyish, and there's another geeky blog I follow sometimes, but again, brain fart... How do you feel about traditional picnics (namely the intimate table for two variety)? Old-fashioned basket or something more utilitarian (cooler/insulated bag)? They're cool, but we have a lot of lunch bags and grocery shopping bags we could use. 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 do have a kid, and I know a bunch of people my age, and some have kids and some do not. I'm rather quiet and awkward, and fairly geeky, but I don't know how I would be really different. Haus of Gloi did a Reverie update! Do any of them interest you? (Or anything else up currently?) Don't really buy Haus of Gloi. Might be interested in trying their scrubs though. Witchee, do you cook? Do you do all the cooking? Is it a chore or a pleasure? love cooking, can be both, and lately, sadly, we've done a lot of eating out. This needs to change. I really want to figure out the best way to do a meal plan for the week, so that I cook more. Which reading level do you prefer to read in YA or Adult? Or even both? I read both. If you could have one rare bpal which one would you choose? Voodoo Queen Are you kinky? Can be, though, I prefer do be more domme than sub. Do you enjoy scented candles? Certain sizes that you like? What kind of scents or brands? Like the tarts question, I'm not big on smelly stuff in the house. Thoughts about South Africa? Have you been here, would you like to go? Would you like to receive anything South African? Never been, might like to visit someday, it's probably far down my list though. As will all travel questions, coins would be awesome! I'm pretty sure I don't have anything from South Africa. Do you like Sockdreams? If so, what styles would you prefer? (You can also link your wishlist.) YES. Tabi socks are awesome, as well as knee highs. I might go through and create a wishlist at some point (If I can get to it, I'll pop the link in my wishlist blog post. Do you need hair accessories? If so, what kind or color? I really like hair combs, don't have many, otherwise, I'm pretty good. What is your favorite shade of blue? Sky blue. Do you have any kitchen gadgets (a SodaStream, a Kuerig/Tassimo) that you want mix things for? I've been thinking of getting my husband a SodaStream, but so far we haven't. No other things that need refills. If you were to start learning something new (intellectual or craft or hobby), what would it be? Chainmaile! I want to start, so so so bad! Or Crochet. A former witch got me some yarn and a hook and gave me instructions and I totally failed. Or spinning yarn. What about candy? Do you have a sweet tooth? Yes, ish. I love Turkish Delight, and specialty odd flavoured chocolates or truffles, I love Vosges, just wish it was cheaper! Do you have an e-reader? What kind? Would you like to get ebooks? I do, but no thank you. 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. Please dont hedge on this one...some of us are serious crafters and will be making most of what we send! Uh, I think honestly if my witch were to read my ?aire, and through my questions and take a look at my etsy wishlist, they could have a fairly good idea of what I like. I love foods of all kinds. And I would love anything my witch put time and effort and love into. Witchee dear, do you like video games? Are there any you want to play? Do you have a large library? I play mostly Mario games, I have a couple for the Wii, or getting Wii (canadian!) points would be cool to get some of the previous Nintendo games. 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. ) Tea. I'm really trying to get into drinking tea so I can use up my stash, but I always love more! Other than that, uh, nothing really. Do you wear nailpolish? What colors do you tend to go for? What are your favorite brands? Are you open to trying indie brands? Love nail polish! I have quite a few examples of what I like on my Etsy Favourites. Name three BPAL scents you hav tried, but are dying to get more of. Detox, Voodoo Queen, Candy Butcher Do you still write real letters on nice stationary to people you like/love? I would do this more if I could get stationary. LOL Have you ever tried anything from Paintbox Soapworks? Which products or scents would you prefer? I love her Sorbettos. They are my favourite. I love her The Natural scent, and the Avast, and the Cotton candy one (name is escaping me) I like fruity or foodie scents. Do you like/have space to garden? If so, what do you grow? I'm planning on planting some Dill, Thyme, Basil, Mint and Catnip on my balcony. I'd love seeds of any of these, or a little in home garden kit of some sort. Do you like sample sized things? Think lipgloss, mascara, bodylotion, scrubs, mini candles, and so forth. Love little samples of body lotion or scrubs. Have you tried Fortune Cookie Soap? What products or scents would you like? I have not, but I'm always up to try new sugar scrubs. (even if I don't need a new place to shop from) Do you use solid soaps at all? If so, what kind do or don't you like? I use them to wash my hands in the bathroom, and I have a ton at the moment. Have you ever tried Cocoa Pink? If you are curious about it, what looks interesting to you? Never tried it, would try a scrub. 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? I actually boycott Lush. Anyone a fan of Shiro Cosmetics? Any particular products? Eye shadow pigments in general? Never heard of this either, but I'm really interested in trying mineral eyeshadows and makeups. My eyes are green, and my hair is henna, I tend to wear golds, browns, purples and sometimes greens. Are there any companies, products, or items you boycott?Lush, a bunch of restaurants, (Actually I really try to avoid chain restaurants anymore) I'm really trying hard to Actively boycott Nestle, but dear gods they own a lot. As I am in Japan, what sort of things would you like from there? All the Japanese THINGS. 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'm not really on facebook except to catch up with my friends or post statuses. I have a few pages that I follow, but most of them end up not showing up in my feed. Dr Who? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. How much do you like lipbalm? Flavored or unflavored? What are your favorite brands and flavors? I love it. But I've found my favourite brand, and I don't want anything else. I love Long Winter Farms (found on Etsy) lip balm. I have a few, could always use more, and I'm open to anything. Do you like and wear lipgloss? If yes, what colours? Nah, I find lipgloss to be too sticky. I stick with lip balm. For those of you whose wishlists contain only BPALs, are there any other perfume companies you like or would like to try out? I've tried others, but honestly I prefer BPAL. 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? Yes, Yes, a thousand times yes. I talk with Vennah a lot about Adagio and she's my friend on their website, she could give you insight into my tea preferences. 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 No coffee thank you. Who is your favourite female of all time? Historical, literary, ANYTHING, and why? I adore Elizabeth the first. I think she was just a kick ass woman, and honestly the first woman I really knew about in history that did anything other than sit and darn socks. I would love to learn more about her, or more about other kickass women in history. Humm, I wonder if there's a coursica course on that... If you were a Disney princess you would be?: My husband says Pocahontas, but I really love Jasmine and Merida. I can see myself being Belle, I really love books, and my husband can be a beast sometimes Would you like a seashell from Florida? I am odd with seashells, I would say yes, if it's a perfect shell, that's like a chonch or similar. I don't really like flat shells. What craft project do you currently have on your docket or that you want to start? And that craft goodies would be welcome? I want to do some chainmaille, would love to get some Aluminum jump rings, and some rubber rings to start to try and learn.

Would you be interested in someone writing out for you a favourite recipe, or finding or devising one which they think you'd like? If so, please provide your favourite ingredients, info on how you like to cook/store and use food, and any intolerances - unless all of these are in your questionnaire, or you don't like the idea. (I'm not saying I'd definitely do this, unless someone is keen, and it wouldn't be the only gift). I guess for other witches this might include something like a knitting pattern - not my thing but would you like that? Or indeed would you like a picture created for you (if so what kind) or a story written? (sorry if this feels a bit Spanish Inquisition!) If you knew you were going to live comfortably for say 800 years, what profession, calling or project might you pursue with some of your extra years, which you imagine you may not do in the life that you have?

Switch Witch is, of course, all about you.....but if your Witch was so inclined, are there wee little ones in your home that will get jealous and are just too young to understand why you won't share the love, who maybe need a touch of Witchee love all their own, to distract them while you hide all your lovelies?!? 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 How do you feel about traditional picnics (namely the intimate table for two variety)? Old-fashioned basket or something more utilitarian (cooler/insulated bag)? 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? Haus of Gloi did a Reverie update! Do any of them interest you? (Or anything else up currently?) Witchee, do you cook? Do you do all the cooking? Is it a chore or a pleasure? Which reading level do you prefer to read in YA or Adult? Or even both? Wednesday June 19/13 If you could have one rare bpal which one would you choose? (Feel free not to answer, I know it's not a standard one!) Are you kinky? Do you enjoy scented candles? Certain sizes that you like? What kind of scents or brands? Thoughts about South Africa?

If you were to start learning something new (intellectual or craft or hobby), what would it be? What about candy? Do you have a sweet tooth? Do you have an e-reader? What kind? Would you like to get ebooks? 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. Please dont hedge on this one...some of us are serious crafters and will be making most of what we send! Witchee dear, do you like video games? Are there any you want to play? Do you have a large library? 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. ) Do you wear nailpolish? What colors do you tend to go for? What are your favorite brands? Are you open to trying indie brands? Name three BPAL scents you hav tried, but are dying to get more of. Do you still write real letters on nice stationary to people you like/love? Have you ever tried anything from Paintbox Soapworks? Which products or scents would you prefer? Do you like/have space to garden? If so, what do you grow? Do you like sample sized things? Think lipgloss, mascara, bodylotion, scrubs, mini candles, and so forth. Have you tried Fortune Cookie Soap? What products or scents would you like? Do you use solid soaps at all? If so, what kind do or don't you like? Have you ever tried Cocoa Pink? If you are curious about it, what looks interesting to you? 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? Do witches prefer the answers posted here, but a more cherry-picked number of questions answered, or a more exhaustive list posted in the blog, which means posting here much less? Anyone a fan of Shiro Cosmetics? Any particular products? Eye shadow pigments in general? Are there any companies, products, or items you boycott? As I am in Japan, what sort of things would you like from there? 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? Monday June 17/13 Dr Who? How much do you like lipbalm? Flavored or unflavored? What are your favorite brands and flavors? Do you like and wear lipgloss? If yes, what colours? For those of you whose wishlists contain only BPALs, are there any other perfume companies you like or would like to try out? 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? 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 Who is your favourite female of all time? Historical, literary, ANYTHING, and why? If you were a Disney princess you would be?: Would you like a seashell from Florida? What craft project do you currently have on your docket or that you want to start? And that craft goodies would be welcome?

If so, which scents? Hum, Blackbird, The Englishman, Sweet Cheeks, The Queen is Dead, Lavender Truffle. Do you have kids (or kid-like pets) who your fox may want to take into account, either in terms of a little extra goody or simple safety? I have a dog, a shiba inu named Tenou, and two cats, Luna and Heroe, I also have a husband, Q, I tend to keep all my goodies away from him How do you feel about honey/beeswax? Would you like any? Oooh yes! I adore the smell of Beeswax, and would love to get a candle, but I find they're always so expensive. Are you a Trader Joe's fan, who either doesn't have a store nearby or just loves their stuff and has a wishlist? Never been to one, any goodies that my fox likes is good with me! The Paintbox Soapworks Yules are up, or at least round one is (updates coming throughout the week). Interested in anything? I would love to try her Snoggin' but I'm also interested in getting slips and sorbettos in Avast, Guy Fawkes and all three in Indian Summer. If I were to place ONE LAST Weenie order, (uh, which I will) what would you want me to include for you? I sadly haven't gotten my weenie decants yet (My friend and I ordered together, we haven't had a chance to get together today yet) BUT, that said, I have a big feeling that I will be wanting at least one bottle of The Gorobble. I'm also very said that I missed grabbing a bottle of Beaver Moon Will you be away for any part of the round? Yes, I'm going to be visiting my sister in Edmonton from the 22nd-29th of November.

No etsy store, I procrastinate too much.... What type of books do you like? Dying to read anything? I love Smutty historical romances (The smuttier the better, Avon is a great Publisher for those) and historical fiction, I love Dresden and Harry Potter, A Song of Ice and Fire and Sookie Stackhouse. I also like historical fantasy and vampire books. My favourite historical romances are the Regency period and the Scottish Highland series books. I also love our very own MeiLin's books If you like Christmas music (or any other holiday music, for that matter), what kind of style do you like? Traditional? Modern and poppy? Indie? I really like all christmas music to be honest. I have my favourite cds that I listen too, and I LOVE the Trans Siberian Orchestra. Do you enjoy things that taste like roses? For example chewing gum, turkish delight, delicious goo that you eat by the spoonful out of a glass jar (and they all taste of rose. Yes, we have all these in Greece.) Turkish Delight is one of my favourite candies in the world, sans nuts please! I also fairly like any floral candy. Also, same question about mastic. Would you be interested in trying it out? (If yes, any preferences? for example you wold prefer to try the chewing gum, the turkish delight, an Easter bun (I can go hunting, some companies make them all year round although it's not the same as the bakery Easter ones ), the raw resin itself, anything?) Never Tried Mastic, but I'd be interested in trying it! How about Mulling Spices? Mmmm Mulling spices! i live in the city of the chicken wing. if i were to send you something savory, what's your heat tolerance (or sweet and heat for that matter). I like Franks Red Hot, but like most people in the thread mentioned, I like the flavour rather than the heat. I should mention that I've had a weird reaction to a local hot sauce, and I've stayed away from that restaurant because of it. I wish I could tell you what was in it, but maybe it's best to stay away from that kind of thing. If your fox/bunny were to gift you with a giftcard from anywhere, as in any store foodwise, music wise etc. what giftcard would you like? Chapters or Amazon, Paintbox SoapWorks or Elements and Artifacts, Body Shop, Bpal? If I were to send you chocolate is there anything I should avoid as in nuts, cherries etc.? Also, what are some of your favorite holiday candies? I love chocolate and stuff in chocolate! I love fruit flavours in chocolate, and I've been dying to try bacon chocolate for ages. The best chocolate bar I've ever eaten was Chocolove's Chilies & Cherries in Dark Chocolate. I also love plain Cadbury's Milk Chocolate Does anything from Fusion Sweets interest you? Um, Yes! Anything I saw that I was intrigued by has been favourited! Interested in anything from the Elements and Artifacts Yule update? Of course! I've had 4 items put aside for me. I must be insane... October 30 Dear Snow Bunnies: Do you do a Christmas tree? If yes is it themed or specially colored or do you just have all different ornaments and such? ORNAMENTS! YES! PLEASE! I want to get a small real tree this year if possible, and we have a VERY small collection of ornaments. Would you like a special ornament? YES! Tim Tams. Yay or nay? Of course! I've heard there's a black forest flavour, and that would be amazing! I know some people are squicked out at the idea of eating things that other people make, or the thought of deep fried cookies sends them into cardiac arrest. If you were my fox, would you like to receive some homemade goodies, or would you prefer that your goodies came from the store? BAKE ME GOODIES DEAR FOX! (Ahem, that is, if that's something you're into!) Would any Bunny like to receive Holiday serving bowls, trays, platters etc...? Winter/Christmas or Thanksgiving/Fall themed? No thanks, I have a ton of the like and a very small apartment. My lovely fluffy Snow Bunny, would you like a bodyscrub made by me? If so, what scent(s) would you like, if you had to think along the lines of essential oils? And would you prefer sugar or salt? A dryer scrub or one that's more oily/moist? Oh yes, that sounds awesome! Essential oils, I'd love something with Thyme in it, it's one of my favourite scents. Either sugar or salt is good, and probably middle ground for moistness. Dear snow bunny, do you like candles? if yes, then what kind? scented (what scents), unscented, what colors, do you like them plain/painted on the outside/with decorations attached to the surface/sculpted? Yes! Jars, pillars, tarts, scents to go with are anything similar to my perfume likes, or take a look at other wls/question blogs. Also what do you think of little soaps? I know most people don't use soaps nowadays but I love the chocolate/vanilla/cocoa/butter/sugar combo scents that I see at beauty stores Sure! I use the paintbox mini bars as hand soap in the sink, so we can always use more. Socks! Slippers! Do you love them or not really wear them? If you love them, do you also love Sock Dreams? Not a big fan of slippers, but I do love me some fun socks! I really like those tabi socks from sock dreams, where the big toe is separate from the other toes. Would you wear something like this if your Fox were to knit you one? If so, what color? http://www.ravelry.c...gap-tastic-cowl Not so much, I prefer scarves to be honest. talk to me of coffee. Whole bean? Ground? Flavored, not flavored? Decaf, whole caff? Favorite roasters? Drip, french press, keurig? BRING ON THE TEA? Decaf if coffee, I do have a french press, but I rarely drink coffee at home to be honest. I love tea, all flavours of tea, I have a tea cupboard of doom! Who else here loves or would like to try Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics? If so, what would you like? I'll have to check it out, but I rarely wear more than eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick. Have you tried anything from Cocoa Pink and if so, what products and scents do you like or would like to try? Never tried Cocoa pink, but I must say I am intrigued. I'll have to check it out when I have a moment and get back to you. Anybody into nail polish? Any color or formula preferences? I love nail polish, I love all colours, though I am trying to find metalic gold/silver/bronze/copper/brass colours, and I like the Matte colours as well. If you found a $50 bill on the ground and were to place a Lab order, what would be in it? (And shipping is free through the magical BPAL unicorn!) With $50, no shipping, I'd get a bottle of Eclipse, and a bottle of Detox, and an imp of the lights of mens lives. October 29th So... someone has gifted you a $20 gift card from Walgreen's to ONLY use on things for yourself. No necessities here. What do you buy? Do they sell Chocolove Chilies and Cherries in Dark Chocolate bars? Then, probably a couple of those Possibly nail polish, and some snack of some sort. Maybe a lip balm (I really like Blistex in the blue tub) or some really thick and as natural as possible body butter for my dry elbows and knuckles (winter skin) Maybe a foot soak item? Or some hair ties, bobby pins and clips. (We don't have walgreen's up here, but we do have something similar, so I was going off what they have at those stores) I live near a brick and morter location for a really, really good spice store. would you use cooking spices and if you would, what would you need? (it's penzey's if you want to google it). I was looking at them, but holy crap they have a ton of stuff! I am really wanting to get some non Dutch processed Cocoa to make real red velvet cake, and I'd love some real cinnamon, past that, I'll have to look! Do you like knitted goods? If so, what would you like, what colors, and do you have any sensitivites or preference when it comes to type of yarn (ex: wool: yay or nay? do you prefer machine washable materials? do you not care?)? Does a bear shit in the woods? sorry to be vulgur, I just REALLY love knitted goodies! I'm all set for scarves, but a hat/headband or gloves/mittens, (or even socks!) would be lovely! hey swap partner...could you use a new mug? As long as it's HUGE, of course! I drink pretty much everything out of mugs (my family thinks I'm weird) and I like using different ones once in a while Is there any sort of regional food/drink/treat you miss or have always wanted to try? Hum, I'm not really sure, I liked these oat cake things I got once from Scottland (Or maybe they were bought in England... I can't remember lol!)

    More Help!

    September 26th Is there any kind of international candy you love or would like to try? I'm always up for trying anything, heh. What is something totally random (yes, that thing that just popped into your head) that hasn't been covered by any previous questions? Random thought, I am lately extremely fascinated by spiders, they are just amazing, the way they move, the way they spin their web. I love orb spiders the most because they are very beautiful with their markings (I have a collection in my apartment, they move in as it gets colder. Sadly the pets will probably eat them before too long) Also, anything to do with knitting lace. I am enjoying it throughly but I don't have anything to block with (or on) and I usually just use some towels and some straight pins. Or something that winds balls of yarn, I do it by hand but man, if there was a small machine that could help (even if my witch just tells me about it) it would be amazing! Small mason jars with lids for spices! Is there any cheesy/non-cheesy Canadian stuff you'd be interested in? Canadian, no need If you were to go here and create your very own chocolate bar, what might it have in it? I'd go for Blueberries and basil in milk or dark chocolate, or coconut and curry (maybe add cashews and mango, maybe not) in milk, or orange, cinnamon and cardamom in dark, or Dried cherries and almonds in dark, or pine nuts and lavender in dark, or seasalt and cayenne pepper in milk. Oh man that site is amazing! September 25th Stuff you've been meaning to do: Too much, get frames for my prints that I have to hang, get new book shelves (and figure where to put them) go through books and clothes to get rid of what I don't need/want any longer, write a list of spices that I like/use on a regular basis and get jars for them, and then get spices from a reputable source online, get some cook books and make a binder of my favourites for easy meal planning, declutter apartment... The list go on and on and on... Would you be interested in regional jams, jellies, or other preserves? Of course! I really like Marmalades and jellies, though jams are awesome too! Do you have any bedtime rituals? Is there any particular product you have to apply or a certain shirt you wear or an act you perform to get you in the "bedtime" mood? Usually I make the bed (yea at night lol!) and if it's already made I just jump in. I also have to use the washroom and take my night time pill (I have a morning and a night time pill) and then dick around on my phone for a few, or chat with Q, he usually "tucks" me in, which basically consists of him sitting on the edge of the bed either talking to me or horsing around with the dog. That's about it. Are you interested in today's/any recent Tee Fury shirts? I like them, and have one (the Our Lady of Sunnydale Buffy shirt) but I can be picky about my shirts. Princess Bride? Yay or nay? Love it! I got a copy of the book last round from my witch and I still have to read the bloody thing... What's your favorite classic fairytale, witches I really like the Snow Queen, though I'm not sure if I'd say it's my favourite. I really like Beauty and the Beast, and the one about the swan... Uh, the name escapes me.... September 24th how do you feel about ethical animal fiber, i.e. wool and the like? Sure What about little wee creatures for your desk or mantel? Oddly enough those remind me of those mice that Steve Carell made in that movie, uh, dinner for shmucks! So those things kinda creep me out... just a bit... Look down. What are you wearing, right now? A tank top and unders, I take my pants off when I get home and didn't feel like putting anything else on. Kerchiefs? Not really my style. It's the weekend, and you find yourself without a single chore or responsibility for a few hours. Right this very moment, what's the one thing you would do if you could do anything? Read, knit, cook, eat, tea. September 23rd Is there anything you'd like from the Mütter Museum Store? I don't know, I haven't really had a chance to take a good look around. I just noticed that Cocoa Pink has 5 ml Perfume Atomizers. Yay or nay? Scents you would like? Scents you would NOT like? Oh no! another place to spend money! uh, Wiccaphobia and Phasmophobia sound good, That place has a long ass list of scents! what's your favorite kind of pizza? Lately I've been on a just Pepperoni kick, though my favourite from like dominos or pizza pizza is Pepperoni, green olives and pineapple, and ranch dipping sauce. If I'm making it at home I like pesto, goat cheese, arugula, asparagus, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. who are your style/fashion icons? post pics if you want! I really don't havea ny. Are there any food items you're craving/aren't able to find around your area? Probably, but I can't think right now. If this is something you're interested in, let me know and I'll try and remember. September 22nd If you're interested in a handmade pouch/cover for an item you have (phones, tablets, books, keys, kettles...), what would your ideal pouch/cover have? Design, material, additional functionality/features like pockets or lights or secret hidey-holes? I'd love either a Tardis like felt/fabric cover for my Kobo or an old hard cover book transformed into a kobo cover. Would you like a photo collage based around your interests/favorite colors/favorite themes? Sure! If you're crafty, are you interested in spoonfeather? And if so, what things there delight your eyes? Seems rather expensive. Colors! What are your favorite colors and what colors do you not like? Pictures and links, people! I love yellows, and ambers and oranges, and browns. Greens, and blues, pinks and reds. In short, I like colours! I'm not a fan or too much neon, and I really don't like pastels, but otherwise, I'm pretty easy. What is your favorite word? Douche or Wanker. What are the feelings on arm warmers? Color, style, texture, length? Sure! I'm not really picky. I think I might have a few styles favourited on my Ravelry page. Do you like tarts? tealights? jar candles? votives? I answered this in thread, but am too lazy to find the answer I like jars best, and tarts, though I don't have a tart burner at the moment. I'm not a fan of votives, mainly because I don't have any holders, and tealights are just tiny and kinda cluttering. What's your favorite flavor? Sour, sweet, bitter, salty? Umami! I love sour gummy candies, but I'm also a fan of the salty sweet, and again love savory! I'm kinda easy to please in that sense. So, are there any online gaming witchees who covet purchasable in-game items or other gamer-y stuff? (yup, geek question) Nope, don't play online MMOs, mainly because I don't really need another reason to be online all day. Anyone doing anything cool for Mabon (or the start of fall, if you aren't pagan? Heh, past! But sadly this year I didn't do anything. I like to try and make a seasonal stew for Mabon but I've been working like a dog lately. What is your favorite coffee blend at Starbucks? If you don't have one, what is your favorite roast of coffee? Not into coffee, and besides, I work there. The only thing I'd like is any of the HUGE mugs! September 21st Cthulhu: yay or nay? meh. don't hate me! Is there something that you wish you could do, but you keep putting it off? Study my doula books. I really need to get on that. Put your current mp3player (I am the anti-apple, so no ipod ), winamp playlist, what have you, on shuffle, list the first 10 songs: It's in the thread, I'll attempt to find tomorrow. Witchee, have you made (or are you planning to make) any Lab or Trading post orders soon? And if you did (or plan to), you should share what you're getting I think a friend and I are making a trading post order for the weenie shirt and two of the bath oils. Do you have any interest in rocks? Not like, polished colorful stones.. but like... rocks. With geologic significance! Not really. If your witch were to knit you a scarf/shawl/cowl, which would you prefer, and what features would you want? Would you prefer something light and drape-y or thick and warm? What kind of colors would you prefer? Do you have any fiber allergies or preferences? I'll attempt to answer in the morning. If you have a pet, could you please post a photo of it? I really need to see what your pet, if you have one, looks like. Posted in thread! Do you like/own/wear/want fairy wings or something of the like? no, thank you How do you feel about terrariums? Uh, sure? lol I guess that'd be cool. What's your favorite horror movie? Scream (series), 13 ghosts, ghost ship, evil dead If your witch was the practical type and wanted to include one or more of your everyday essentials, what would those include? I'm talking about the bath products, lotions, face lotions, teas, food, etc that you really use every day. I use Paintbox Soapworks and Villainess soaps/scrubs/lotions exclusively, Kiss My Face Aloe tooth paste, Jamieson brand prenatal vitamin (I'm not pregnant yet, but I like taking the vitamins) Salt stone deodorant, Venus razors, Loofa sponges, diaper rash cream for irritations (it really works!) lip balm(pretty much anything, but I Adore the Blistex in the blue tub and always have at least one on me) Jane Austen .. Yay or Nay? YAY! I am trying to read the books, and now that I have a better grasp on the language and the way they talked it's a bit easier. I really enjoy Pride and Prejudice. Oh Mr. Darcy! I put up quotes I love in my office and studio to get me going, They range from goofy to sarcastic to inspirational... Are you interested in a hand painted quote? Do you have one in mind, or a topic in mind? That would be really awesome! Quotes... I don't really know... Something Sailor Moon? (she has some pretty awesome quotes through the series) or something Dr. Who, or Pride and Prejudice, or Elizabeth the 1st. Or, surprise me? You seem to know me fairly well already (I think?) Do you like period or period-styled paraphernalia? Stuff like postcards, notecards, jewelry, office supplies, what-have-you? Oh man that'd be awesome! If you like manga, comics, and/or graphic novels, what is it about them that you like, in general? The story, the art/style, etc? I do like the style, but I really have to like the story. If you could choose a Smack, what would it have in it? Oh wow, there's a lot... lol! Bonfire, Spice Trade, Marshmallow and Redwoods Coconut, Candy Floss, Buttercream cupcake and berry patch Peach, Limeade Raspberry and plum and unearthed suede, spicedtrade, chocolate mousse and cherries jubilee Probably others too! if you could have a salon scent made, based on any artwork(s) what would it be? NSFW under the cut I'd also love to see Sailor Moon scents based off the princesses using these images found here Or any of Mucha's work, including these: I also really like waterhouse, and Erte is pretty awesome! Are you scientifically curious and/or process-oriented? Would you like a project-type gift that allowed you do do something like make soap from scratch, take and (nontoxic-ly) develop photographs using a pinhole camera, use plant dyes on yarn or fabric, etc.? Sure! What's 'your' song/your theme song? I have no idea! lol! My wedding song was "God Only Knows" by The Beach Boys, but, uh, yea, I have no idea! What would be your superpower? some sort of telekinetic ability Witchee, would you like a gently used BPAL tshirt? Sure! I believe I shared my sizing info in my ?aire Do you like homemade snack mixes? I know Puppy Chow was mentioned in a previous question, but what about healthier and more natural type snacks like granola or trail mix? You can put a lot of delicious and fun things into trail mix, yeah? If you say "Sure, I'd love some!" what kinds of things do you like/not like in those kinds of snacks, ie coconut flakes, raisins, certain nuts (allergies??), candy, etc. Give us your list of DO's and DON'Ts! Omnomnom! Sure! I'm up for anything, though I prefer savory Do you like charm bracelets? If you had a bracelet, what sort of charms would you want on it? Favorite hobbies, symbols, whatever? No, thank you. September 20th Would you like any ecotools makeup brushes? They're kinda one of my favorite things ever, and they're animal-friendly and the handles are bamboo. And to top it all off, they work really well for applying makeup. Sure! I don't have a very good collection of brushes (I think I have one brush....) but I'm always up for more. Do you like Legos? Especially mini-fig key chains, Lego block keychains, small Lego sets, etc? I like the mini figures, but not the blocks. Since the previous question about "what would you buy from the Lab if you had unlimited funds, etc" left WAY too much to the imagination with no limitations (my answer was pretty much BUY ALL THE THINGS!), what would you do if you found a $50 bill on the ground and a nagging voice in the back of your mind told you that you HAD to spend it on BPAL or else face Death. Also, say they had free shipping (LOL) so don't factor that in. What would you get? And spend it all! Or as close to $50 as you can get. With $50, no shipping, I'd get a bottle of Eclipse, and a bottle of Detox, and an imp of the lights of mens lives. Are there any characters that you love or identify with? Love Leon S. Kennedy (though, I think by now, you know that ) Identify with Sailor Moon/Usagi Tsukino, and Donna Noble. A question! If you are crafty, what's your personal art style? I'm not talking just about what art you like to look at, but what kind of art do you like creating? Do you have a "process" while you're creating beauty? I don't really have one. Are there any Arcana Weenies that you MUST HAVE? I haven't checked out the list, but if you would like, I can! So what say you? IS an "unexpected" visit/in-person witching OK? Sure! Just, uh, let me clean first! Or maybe a get together would be better, I'm usually always up for going for coffee/tea! September 19th What strange misc. items would you love to receive that you just haven't gotten for yourself?: I was thinking about this the other day, and now it's slipped my mind. if I can remember I'll write it down and post it. How do you feel about franken polish? Are you okay with all chemicals, or would you prefer 3 free? Would you want glitter or holographic glitter? What colors would interest you? Not so much on the glitter, maybe just a bit, but this sounds fun! rather be 3 free if it could be. Dear witchee, how do you feel about lip balm? Favorite style (twist up tube, pot, tube with wand, etc.)? Favorite flavors? Flavors to avoid? Favorite brand? Do you need more right now or are you set? Are you one of those people who could never have enough lip balm even though you have a bowl on your dresser overflowing with them and 10 in your purse and an order for more on the way? yes. All of it. Would you be interested in getting fountain pen inks or art supplies via JetPens and or DickBlick? (I know I have a wishlist on JetPens and just love using fountain pens in my artwork) My writing is horrible, (I blame it on typing for the past 10 or so years) so something like this would be wasted on me. -For those interested in watercolors, how would you feel about getting a palette filled with paint from my watercolor tubes but not getting the paint tube itself? (kind of like this but without the covers for the compartments and bigger http://www.flickr.co.../in/photostream) While I think it would be neat, I don't really paint so, again, probably wasted on me. -How do you feel about getting art supplies in general? (copic markers, watercolor, brushes, paint, sketchbooks etc.) Now, markers or acrylic paint and brushes would be welcome. -How do you feel about Threadless tshirts? They're cool, I'm particular about my tshirts. If you were turned loose in a basic drug store (CVS, Walgreens - a pharmacy with attached mini-mart, basically!) with a $20 bill, what would you pick up? A cheesy celeb magazine, a cool nail polish, a lip balm, a snack (chocolate or chips or both!) and a bottle of water. Darling Witchee, would you enjoy farmer's market pickled veggies (green beans, garlic, asparagus, etc) or fresh canned peaches or something of that nature? In theory yes, but in reality it would probably go bad, or in the case of fresh canned, probably cost a ton. Do you prefer color or white photographs? Nature or abstract? Colour or black and white is good (usually the subject matter is what dictates that, and I love nature and naked women. That makes me sound like a perv... would you be interested in something like this? https://lostcrates.com/how-it-works No, thank you. Amigurumi, yes or no? YES! Chococat or Leon or a shiba or a spider or a raven or a black cat or or or... lol!!! I have a question! What are some of your favorite paintings? (famous or undiscovered?) Feel free to link to examples! This is hard, cause I really like art, but can be picky. I love Mucha, and am enjoying Erte. I like Waterhouse too (I should pick one and get a print for my bedroom) I also have a few favourited artists on deviant art (though, def. not a enough!) If you could have an image painted for you - sky is the limit - what would it be? This would probably change every day, I'm open to many things, if this is something you're interested in doing let me know, or surprise me! Name your 3 favorite scents for candles: Food scents, spice scents, uh... lime scents! Name your 3 favorite types/flavors of tea I highly prefer tisanes (herbal teas) to tea tea, but I like chai, and fruity teas, I LOVE LOVE LOVE genmaicha, the japanese green with puffed rice stuff in it.

    September 18th Do you wear t-shirts? Are there particular things you like on them? Would you like one designed by your Witch? And, if you don't mind saying, what size t-shirt do you wear? I love teeshirts! I prefer the longer style, and a little bit of a scoop neck otherwise I tend to look a bit funny. If you'd like to design me one that'd be awesome! Sizing is in my ?aire How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc.... Omnomnom! Dear Witch, I rarely have candles burning, reason? I don't have very many! Shocking I know! I am always open to receiving candles! Has anyone else heard of or does anyone else love Glamourkin? Glamourkin is great! I do have one though, and unless you see one that you think I couldn't live without, I'm good for now. If you had an international witch, is there anything you would like from the UK? (Or Australia, Belgium, France any other country we have witches from. I adore Japanese snacks/foods. As for UK, I like Prawn Crisps and I had a friend from the UK send me some scottish(at least I think they were scottish) oat cakes/cracker things. They were fantastic! Dear witchee, if you answered 'Mac' to the Mac/PC question previously issued by another participant, please tell me what kind of computer you have, what peripherals you own (like the wireless trackpad, wireless vs/wired keyboard and mouse), and whether you're interested in Apple-related items (stickers, keychains, other things with the logo, etc). Nope. SOCK PREFERENCES?

I'd love to be able to watch it on my tv! Does anyone like postcards? Is anyone willing to be a Nacho witch for postcards? I <3 post cards! I'm actually planning on covering my coffee table with the many different postcards that I've received from family, friends and forum members. Anyone going to see any good concerts this fall? Not that I know of. Do you like Star Trek? Original TV series, films, spinoff series, etc? Favorite characters? I am a fan, I like the original series and The Next Generation, Kirk and Picard are probably my favourite characters, followed closely by Data. I also am enjoying the reboot of the series, probably because I have a HUGE crush on Chris Pine. Witchee, would you like a framed photograph and of what? If you can get the frame here in one piece, I'm all for it! As for subject matter, there's quite a few of Ellebelle's photos I like, and I also have a favourites list on my DeviantArt page. If you'd like a list of my favourites from Ellebelle's photos, just let me know! September 16th Are you more prone to order out or cook at home? Would you be interested in cookbooks, kitchen utensils, and the like? If so, anything specific? Lately we've been eating out, or scavenging for food, mainly because I have really bad work hours. I'm always up for cookbooks, easy/fast meals are good ideas, healthy but yummy are also good. New question: How do you feel about maple syrup? Meh. How do people feel about little pocket shrines, maybe something inspirational/motivational to keep in their purses/backpacks/whatever? (Like these: http://www.art-shrin...cketshrines.htm) Those are really neat! I'd be totally up for something like that (Leon maybe) Do you like Star Wars? Original Trilogy? Prequels? Spin-offs? Favorite characters? I enjoy them, and have a costume from one of the movies, but I dunno, just too much hype I think, in my opinion anyway. There are so many things that I enjoy more. That said, I do much prefer the original trilogy to the prequels. Do you like beef jerkey, I know some may be vegatarian, but where I live beef is a staple and beef jerkey abounds. If so do you it really thin, hard and crunchy or thicker and softer. (OK that borders on obscene)- Not really my thing. Also do you like or racier ecards from time to time and do you need to be warned if something may be not safe to open at work. By all means! You're witching someone who loves to read Avon Historical Romance novels. some of them border on erotica! Doctor Who? Yay or nay? (please don't make me cry by saying nay) Have you seen my icon?

Not too big into Angel though. How would you feel about gummies? Like, gummy bears? Gummy werewolves? Gummy vampires? SEND ME ALL THE GUMMIES!

Are you a cartoon bats and smily pumpkins person or a skulls-and-bones the-dead-are-rising kind of person? Are your fairytales dark or Disney? I'm not a gore person really, I don't mind scary movies though (As long as I can watch them with Q!) I'm not even sure how to classify myself in this question. LoL! Are your ears pierced, Witchee? Do you have any other piercings? Would you like to receive any items of jewelry for these piercings? Yes, but just my ear lobes, and yes. How do you all feel about Whoopie Pies? Ew. No thank you.

OMG YES! How would you feel about receiving a Groupon deal for something in your local area? If there is anything you WOULDN'T like, mention that also. I would be nice to get something, but I'm on the Groupon email list for my city and I usually don't see anything I would enjoy. Best to leave this one out. do you like real sugar skulls? Things with sugar skull designs? There are some really pretty pieces of art that I've seen, but it's really not my thing. Who here adores meringue? Meh.

Or Just Breathe (I have that tattooed on my inner left wrist actually) How about little bottles of booze? Ya wanna? What kind? No, thank you. What are your views on fudge and brownies? (Also, if you live in a warm place, where the fudge might melt, that'd be helpful to know. Or, if you're diabetic and fudge is death, that'd be useful to know, too.) Oh gods YES!

I tend to get him more organic treats, and I like the softer ones. As for toys, Tenou had a dental surgery this year and they took two teeth, so I'm trying not to give him hard plastic toys, but rather soft stuffies or soft rubber ones. The cats rarely get toys since Tenou goes after them, but if they get some from you I will try my hardest to keep Tenou away from them!

Anything you liked but swapped for something else and once in a while get all "I wish I hadn't done that" about it? For me lately it seems to be Tarot: The Star. I had a full 10ml bottle, and some decants, and then ended up swapping it for something or selling it or something like that. I don't really want a full bottle, but a decant would be nice to have again! March 23 Easter Candy - do you like it? If so, what types?Omnomnom!! I love candy, sours and gummies are the best! (I've been wanting some gummi bears for a while now.) I like jelly beans, but really only like the expensive jellybellies. Easter specific candies? Peanut butter eggs. What scent(s) are you petrified of getting DC'd? Bliss, Eclipse, Detox, of those I only need to get a bottle of Detox, but I'd love to have backups of all of them at some point. March 22 Violette Market Update is up. Do you covet anything from it? I try to stick with BPAL, as I lack the funds to buy many different types of perfume. What is your favorite type of wine? Would you be interested in trying something new? In that case, is there anything you really DONT like? Ooooo how about dessert wines? No wine for me. March 21 What three things are you craving right now? A swim in the ocean, crab and/or southern food, some more cupcakes from www.fortheloveofcake.ca or http://theweddingcakeshoppe.com. Both amazing bakeries within walking distance to my house (though the love of cake one is closer.) paper goods, anyone need? including resume paper, and formal stationery as well as casual cards. I'd love some! I'd actually kinda like some that looks like it could be Usagi's (sailor moon) pink with stars, moons and rabbits all over it. I wish I could find you the image, but I'm having trouble finding what I'm thinking of. What is a scent that you've been trying to find even a sample of for a very long time to no avail? (What bottle would you die to get your hands on - even a partial?) I don't even know! LOL! I haven't really been looking because I can't really buy, but I'd like to get my hands on some Champagne, Chocolate and Cheap Sex, Le Père Fouettard, and I'd love to even just sniff Orange, Storyville or unseelie. I'd love to get a hold of some Voodoo Queen too! (I don't ask for much do I? ) Is there anything in your life that you'd like advice or a "selfhelp" book for?: (ie finances, eating healthier, meal planning) I'd like some exercise tips or healthier eating, meal planning tips. I answered this in thread, but can't find it. lol! March 19 If your Witch lived near you, would you be happy or creeped out to get a "coupon" for a service like cleaning help or babysitting or dogwalking or coffee out with your Witch or something like that? Would you be creeped out if a local minion personally delivered a package to your house from a far-away Witch? Not at all! I like visitors!! Let's say I have a pair of something you collect, would you like one of them and we have matching things? That'd be neat. March 18 Do you like poetry? I think? I've liked some poetry does that count? What types of scents do you like to scent your home? Which do you totally avoid? I'm kinda the foody scent person, though I'm fairly specific. I do like lime too. What are your thoughts on comics? Any you like? Any you have been wanting to try? Favorite characters? I've been reading The Walking Dead, and Buffy Season 8. I have the first 5 of the Buffy uh, what's the word, when it's like 6or so comics in a papercover? ugh I'm so bad with language! Also attempting to collect all the Sailor Moon pocket graphic novels, I have 4 so far, and will continue to try and get more. It's gonna take a while though. I do like x-men, but haven't really followed most of the comics, and would love to start reading Sandman. How do you feel about nail polish? What colors do you like? Sparkles? As others have stated, I also only paint my toes. Mainly because I'm not allowed to have polished nails at work (and it sucks!) I do love it though, and I really love RED! Though I'm always looking for really awesome metalics in Gold, silver, copper and bronze that don't have sparkles and apply smoothly without the brush strokes showing up in the polish. Ok geek check - what sort of geeky things do you do? Do you read comics/graphic novels? Are you obsessed with something (a TV show maybe?) Do you work in a geeky field? Do you play rpgs like Dungeons and Dragons? Would you like gifts related to any of these? I think I was good at giving some idea of the level of my geekyness on the ?aire (I added a 3-4 paragraph note to my witch ) but I do read comics (see comic question) and fairly obsessed with Leon S. Kennedy (though many of you already know this I wish he were real and I always wish he was in the Resident Evil movies, but at the same time I'm glad he's not because I don't know if anyone could play him up to my idea. Also fairly obsessed with Sailor Moon (I her! I want to do cosplay some day) and Dr. Who, for the non-tv, I adore the Dresden Files (don't tell me there was a show, I'm trying to forget!) For video games I adore Final Fantasy 9 (only 9, couldn't get into the others.) Mario (who doesn't?) and Legend of Zelda! I used to play D&D but no longer. I also am fairly obsessed with Vampires and have been since I was young. I don't really care for a lot of the modern day teeny bopper vamprires, or Anne Rice to be honest, but I do love me some vampire erotica or romance. I would adore anything related to these! And if my witch needs to know more of the geeky stuff I'm into I can try and make a more detailed list. :nod: Do you have a favorite fabric? If someone were to make you a fabric item, would you prefer it be out of any fabric? e.g. velvet, satin, silk, cotton, bamboo??? Would this change if it were an article of clothing vs. a bag/pillow/blanket/something else I love the feel of Velvet and silk and bamboo! my favourite bedsheets are bamboo and I want to get another set or two. I do like most other types of fabric as well, just prefer natural fibers as apposed to synthetic fibers. Anything with the Worm Moon update that you're already lusting after? Thankfully enough, no! I took a look last night right before bed and went to sleep knowing there was nothing to tempt me, but had to double check this morning because I don't think I was paying that much attention! March 17 Would you want an invite to a site that is invite-only ex. Diaspora, Demonoid, etc. If so, what? Can't think of any, no. Pillows? What size/designs/colors would most interest you? I think I'm set for pillows. purses? bags? What style/colors? As much as I really do need a new purse I can be picky. It needs to have inner pockets, and a zipper on top, with a strap that can extend to wear over my shoulder. I have a few ideas of what I like on my Etsy wl though. Decorative scarves for hair and/or creative accessorizing? What colors? Not really me. Would you like anything from Starring Fragrances. They make awesome hair stuff, natural deoderant, and home fragrance (and a ton of other stuff, those are just my favs)? Not even gonna look! don't need something else to spend my money on! March 16 For those who like lipgloss, lipstick, tinted balms, etc, what colors do you wear (and warm? cool?) and do you prefer something sheer or more opaque? How do you feel about shimmer? I wish I could get a lovely red, (like Christina Agulara wears) but I can never find one and a lip liner that doesn't smug or bleed. I also have weird shaped lips so it goes a little weird on me sometimes (my birthmark has a name and I can't remember it right now, but it's made my upper lip asymmetrical so I have to really focus when I put lipstick on. Are there any fancy/gourmet/special herbs or spices that you'd love to receive? ie: good quality vanilla or other extracts, vanilla beans, saffron, lavender, etc. Not that I can think of, no. What's your favorite animal? Or is there one that's particularly significant to you? Big cats, particularity Lions, tigers, jaguars, leopards, and the little wild cats like sand cats, ocelots, geoffry cats, bob cats. I love Shiba inus, and Akitas. I love ravens and crows, Owls, Otters(!!) and octopuses (weird, octopuses doesn't get a spell check, but Octopi does.) I guess you could say I like animals? If you were able to get a vintage or prototype bottle from the upcoming West Coast Will Call, which one would you want?I might get Boo v3, Cake Smash v6 or maybe Elf or half Elf though I have no idea what they smell like (those just happen to be my favourite species in D&D) DVDs, Blu-Ray, both, neither? just DVD really, we have a PS3 but I usually just put something on a geek stick (usbstick) and pop it in the usb port and watch downloaded shows/movies that way. Sock Dreams? What kind? (anklets, footies, etc.?) Oh they said the magic word! I adore sock dreams! I wish I could afford more! I really like the tabi socks, and recently found these and love them! (Brown, charcoal, olive, denim, grey, hunter, royal, rust.) Since this is a price capped round, would you rather get one "big" thing or lots of "little" things or don't care? I am going to leave this up to my witch, it's not that I don't care, it's that it doesn't matter! I will love anything you get me! Do you like pirate-related things? Sure! but maybe just some art? or a functional item. Soaps? Be specific: if there are BPAL soaps you want to try or are dying for more of, tell all here! Also, any other companies people like or love? Villainess, maybe? Or Lush? What flavors??? I'd love to try the Shub soap from the trading post, or a little bit of Glowing vulva bath oil. I adore Tarty's soaps from Paintbox soapworks and really want to try The Immaculate Confection and the Blackbird soaps, and from Villainess the Death by Chocolate bar sounds amazing! What periods of art do you love most? Like, if someone was going to get you a tapestry or a box or some other item, what period would you want it to most resonate with? the pinks and golds of Rococo? the clean geometry of Art Deco? The romanticism of Art Nouveux? The strange lines of Cubism? Art Nouveau, hands down. I am quite a romantic Would you like caffeinated lollipops?: No thanks witchy dear, I can't do caffeine. Copied CD's or DVD's? But of course! I'm going to Disneyland in a couple of weeks, is there anything I can get you? I adore Jasmine! March 15 Booze? Yay or Nay? what kinds? No, thank you, doubt it could be shipped to Canada, and if I have a Canadian Witch, I just don't drink that much. Steampunk inspired items? Yay or nay? Sure! I'm kinda getting into the subculture! (though I have nothing of it as of yet.) Do you like Amigurumi dolls? Yes! I would love one! A chocobo, or a Leon, or maybe a Leonard from BBT, a Maneki Neko (japanese Lucky cat), a shiba inu, or or or! the list could most definitely go on!! Pirates vs Ninjas vs Zombies - who wins? Which do you love most? Uh, Pirates, obviously Do you like wearing things in your hair? If so, what kind (snap clips, scrunchie, headband, etc), how big & crazy (lowkey, bigger the better), and colors. I love Snap clips, need some more, but I prefer the more nuteral coloured ones. Also need more bobbie pins. And Elastics! My hair just started to get long enough to pop in a pony and I have two or three lonely elastics roaming the apartment. I did have some headbands for work but I stopped wearing them. Piercings? - ears?? - elsewhere? Just my ears, and actually juts my lobes. I do have 7 holes though. Chocolate. With stuff in it? Are you more a plain chocolate lover, a chocolate and normal items lover (normal items being nuts, fruit, caramel) or do you like weird stuff in your chocolate? (weird stuff being curry, chilis, balsamic vinegar, floraly things) My favourite chocolate bar ever is the Vosges Curry bar. Omnomnom. I wish it wasn't so expensive up here, else I'd get it all the time! That said, I really do like to try anything once and the weird stuff is so yum! My favourite American chocolate bar is the Hershey's Symphony bar. My parents get me a big one every year at Christmas and then sometimes throughout the year they might bring one up. I thought Q had eaten mine from Christmas this year, but I found it in a drawer! (thank goodness!) March 14 surprise! the world has given you the day off. You hear that, no chores, responsibilities, or budget you have to follow. What would you do in those 24 hours? Ok, Providing there's endless money, I don't have to worry about sleep and I can get places all over the world quickly, I'd go to Japan and help with the rescue of people and animals in the areas hit by the earthquake and tsunami, in the last 2-3 hours of the day I'd come back here and get a full body massage, pedicure, and sit in The Waters. Now if I couldn't just go anywhere in the world, I'd do what I could to help Japan from here, getting food together, supplies, whatever we're sending, and if we're sending nothing, then start getting people and supplies ready and finding a way to send them there. And again the last couple hours I'd get a massage and all that. Do you have any blogs you regularly read? uh... not really.. I'm bad at keeping up with blogs. And I should really figure out how to use RRS. That said I do have quite a few in my book marks that when I'm bored and think about it I go see if there's any new posts. Do you need another bpal box? If so what would your fantasy one look like? Maybe not a bottle box, but am in dire need of an imp box! as for looks? surprise me!! (though I do love that box that Twi shared! I will own one, one day!) Do you enjoy gardening? If so, what kind of stuff do you grow? Vegetables, flowers? I wish I could, I would love to do it.

I so can't wait until I have a house. or at least something with some land I can garden in!

I adore fanfiction too, so if You can find some with my favourite characters also awesome! My favourite parings: Buffy/Giles, Buffy/Spike, Leon/Clair, Wesker/Chris, Wesker/Clair, I kinda have a soft spot for Twilight fanfiction, mainly because the fanfiction is better than the stories themselves. Sailor Moon fanfiction, X-men fanfiction. Tim Tams? Yes or no? Chocolate Creme, Caramel, or Dark Chocolate?: YES! The answer is YES! Is there any "classic" literature (Hemingway, Dickens, Elliot, Bronte, Hugo, Wilde, etc.) that you would like to add to your collection? I've been interested lately in the classics and actually have a bunch on my universal wishlist. candles and/or aroma melts: yay or nay? Sure! But it can't smell too fake. I tend to like foody scents in candles cause it's not that hard to mess up (though I have smelled some and gone "How is that apple pie?" or some other food) Skyelyric mentioned something about woodwick candles in the GUSP thread a bit back and I'd love to get one of those! Soy candles or melts are great too! and if the scent is all natural then even better! (see my wishlist for an idea of scents I like, I popped a list of notes in there that I like or that are doom notes.)

Well, Let's say I had unlimited funds I'd get a bottle of Detox, Bitch, Grr, Dana O'Shee, Mme.M and another bottle of Snake Oil to age, and imps of The Lights of Men's Lives, The White Rider, The Red Rider, and Tombstone, get all my main GC wants, and LE wise I'd probably get Chocolate bacon, White Chocolate Mango, Harigata, USHI!! Young Pine Saplings. From BPTP I'd get another pair of the green plant yoga pants, Celest perfume, Kitty's case, Virgina's case and a couple bottles of Spanked! As for forum, I'd try and find some Lovers with Rutting cats and some Pet Magah Bird OH OH OH! I can't forget! WAND CAPS!! I need to start getting wand caps for my perfume!! What level of nudity are you fine with on items? Ex: none, tasteful, erotica: Completely fine with nudity, I have some pictures on my deviant art favourites that are nudes. I know the ?airre asked about gently used books and if you like garage sales, but would you like other kinds of gently used items that may have come from a garage sale?: Of course! by all means!! (just no underthings, which is probably a given. ) Do you like cooking seasonings, like the kind you can get in ounce sizes? If so, things you'd love to try out?: YES! I love cooking with spices and I'm really trying to use more and find more! If you like it send me some! Do you like any particular kinds of green or black teas or coffees that could also be gotten in bulk? I much prefer fruit teas and not a big coffee drinker. I do like many fruit teas that can be bought in bulk at speciality stores, my favourite flavours are pear and peach. Favorite snack foods (and can they be from bulk section as well?) I LOVE those rice crackers with the soy glaze! Omnomnomnom!! And I really like gummy candies! also like dried fruit and goldfish crackers!

If someone were to make you a fabric item, would you prefer it be out of any fabric? e.g. velvet, satin, silk, cotton, bamboo???

Are you more a plain chocolate lover, a chocolate and normal items lover (normal items being nuts, fruit, caramel) or do you like weird stuff in your chocolate? (weird stuff being curry, chilis, balsamic vinegar, floraly things) March 14 surprise! the world has given you the day off. You hear that, no chores, responsibilities, or budget you have to follow. What would you do in those 24 hours? Do you have any blogs you regularly read? Do you need another bpal box? If so what would your fantasy one look like? Do you enjoy gardening?

If you were to make an order RIGHT NOW (Not that any of you will make any bpal orders until SW is over, because you do NOT want to mess up any plans your witch might have!) What would you order (from lab, forum, DD, TradingPost, etc) What level of nudity are you fine with on items? Ex: none, tasteful, erotica I know the ?airre asked about gently used books and if you like garage sales, but would you like other kinds of gently used items that may have come from a garage sale? Do you like cooking seasonings, like the kind you can get in ounce sizes? If so, things you'd love to try out? Do you like any particular kinds of green or black teas or coffees that could also be gotten in bulk? Favorite snack foods (and can they be from bulk section as well?)
  11. 9/25/10 If you could make a scent that represents where you live (or have lived), what would be the ingredients? I think I will have to think about this a bit more, as the only places I've lived are TO, and Grim City. Are you in need of Roller bottles or anything of the like? I'd love to find a small roller bottle that could hold 2-3 decants worth, possibly with a metal ball, though I'm open to anything really! 9/24/10 Just curious, but if your witch was to make an amigurumi critter (or other plushie) just for you, what would it be? OMG! Leon Kennedy, or maybe the Car from Supernatural, or a Tardis, or the 10th or 11th Dr.!!!! I also love octopi, and squid! maybe a Platypus! Would you want a local/tourist item from your witch? Like a t-shirt, mug or shot glass? Big mugs would be welcome, and maybe a kinda cool keychain. Okay, who wants NAlloween and some Vampire Apothecary goodness? Not ventured in that direction, and I'm slightly afraid to with out being on top of all my finances just yet. Venomous Villains? I NEED to have the Bad Faerie nail polish. Everything else can wait until I see it in person and test it out. Last Unicorn? I will need to see a notes list. Who is your fav Disney Villian/villianess? How about hero/herione? (doesn't have to be specifically Disney though) I answered this in thread, but I'm not sure about villain to be honest, I do like the evil witch from Emperor's New Groove. I have this weird black and white mentality when it comes to Disney movies and most books I read. I usually can't feel for the villain at all because I usually feel they deserve what ever they get. Again, I'm weird. I love Jasmine, Esmerelda, Belle and Briar Rose(sleeping beauty). Ariel is up there, as is Mulan and Pocahontas. 9/23/10 Do you collect stones/rocks? I'm talking like "semi" precious stones, ie moonstone, bloodstone, quartz ect. Are there any that you're looking for at the moment? Are you in need of a stone but don't know which kind? I do collect them and I would take whatever my witch felt was a good idea to send to me. What's your favorite Halloween Music? Rocky Horror Picture Show. Though I find I don't really listen to Hallowe'en specific music, like I listen to Christmas specific music. 9/22/10 Do you have a deviantart print wishlist or favourites list? Yep! Link can be found on my wishlist blog entry. Is there anything from Blooddrop that you want to try? GC? Halloween update? Not looking! lol!!! What kind of shoes do you need/want? What size shoes do you wear? Would you mind gently used shoes? Oh, I have no idea! I think I'm set for shoes at the moment. Do you like paper dolls (new or vintage) or coloring in books? Not so much, wouldn't really get used and would probably be gifted away. However, a Sailor Moon colouring book probably wouldn't get gifted! lol Do you like weird scary things as traditionally girly fashion items like heels and handbags? meh. I'm rather picky about my shoes to be honest, and I have a hard time seeing the use of too many handbags. This is on it's way to changing however What song is on heavy rotation for you right now? "For Now" from Avenue Q, "To Sir, With Love", "Faithfully" and "Over The Rainbow" from Glee. "Gray Sky Eyes" and "What About Everything" by Carbon Leaf, "Bombs Away" Weibilt, "Super Honey" Edwin and the Pressure. Are you coveting any of the NYCC atmospheric sprays? I try not to covet what I know I can not get. If you could get any one thing hand-painted from your witch, what would it be and what would be on it? Hum.... I have no idea! Maybe a bowl or vase of some sort? or a box? As for what on it... I have no clue! (helpful I know) Would you (assumin' you're a yarnie) be interested in a naturally-dyed yarn that's designed to very gradually fade with washing? That would be totally up my alley! If you have played before, what are some of the most memorable things you've gotten? What really made you go WOW? If you haven't played, same thing, but not limited to SW. Schackjj had someone make me a nest(bowl) and some little owls, they were my favourite from that round (though the Boo scented lotion was a VERY close second! ) Unlaced got me into Weibilt, and I'm pretty sure it was her that had someone send me a few soundtracks that had gotten lost when my computer decided crashing was an awesome idea. I've loved EVERYTHING I've gotten from my witches, because it shows me that they are listening to what I have to say, and they're taking the time to make/buy something specially for me. 9/21/10 Do you like garlic? Do you REALLY like garlic? Would you want to try some really unusual garlic stuff, like garlic cheese or garlic fudge or garlic chocolate, etc., etc., etc.? mmmmmmmmm Garlic. I am totally up for trying anything once. Except bugs. I don't think I could eat bugs. Can I talk to you about the living dead? How do you feel about Zombies? Please don't. I have more knowledge of zombies, and have seen more zombie movies then I have ever wanted in my life. RE is an exception, as is the Abhorsen series (mainly because it took me years to realize that the "dead" as they're called, are actually zombies. Duh.) 9/20/10 If you happened to be my Witchee, is there something you'd like from the Arcana Halloween update? Couldn't find it randomly enough.... How many bottles of BPAL do you have? Uhh... maybe 20 ish? A Ton of imps/decants though and quite a few roller bottles with random amounts of oil in them too. Is there any exercise program that you're interesting in learning? Meditation, Yoga, Pilates, Belly Dancing, Zumba ect? Or if you do any of these (or anything else sport related) are there any things you need/want? Candles, music, mats, water bottles ect? I have wanted to do Yoga and Belly dancing for a long time. I think Pilates would be something really good to get into, considering I really do want to loose weight. I keep hearing about Zumba, but I haven't looked into it. Anyone else into Emily Autumn? Who? What's on your walls? Please show us up to three paintings/posters/whatever. If you love a painting so much that you would steal (to watch it with your greedy eyes) one, please share. I shared this on the forum, but I will repeat here. I have a fabric wall scroll: image found here I have a frame with 3 wedding pictures, a self portrait I painted in Highschool and a picture painted for me by Karen07 from one of the art swaps. I also have a picture of a lioness and her three cubs in my bathroom. I have a few prints that need to be framed and go up, and I would love to find an Alphonse Mucha mounted poster to put up somewhere. do you like Girl Scout cookies? What kind? mmmm I like the Thin mints. What's your take on homemade apple butter? Want some? *Drool* YES PLEASE! 9/19/10 Do you read/like fantasy? What kind of books or authors do you love? Which one would you like to read? Would you like gifts related to it? I love fantasy, I've read the Dragonlance books, and am always looking for more to read. Soaps : do you like them? What brands? What scents? Anything you're dying to try? Oooh soap! I love Tarty's soaps, some lush (quite particular with their soaps to be honest) and I like Villainess, and I have a few others favourited on my etsy wl too. I wondered if my witch or any witch would enjoy things like nice pens to draw with or anything similar? I love coloured pens! For those who are yarnies, would you like other-than-yarn witchery? Hooks, needles? Preference of material? Do you use/would you like handmade stitch markers, etc.? I could always use some new circulars, though I'd have to look up the size that's best. Probably us size 5, in a 16" length. Totally fine for stitch markers. Does anyone do altered books? Would you be interested in old books to alter? Any type or title in particular? This could be neat, though I don't think I'd alter one on my own, one that's already altered would be cool. Did someone ask about incense yet? Would you like some? Something to store or burn it in? What scents? What form? I can't, I'm pretty sure I'm allergic. Any oddball free things you collect or would want saved for you? I don't think I have anything.... 9/18/10 Who likes hair toys, and if so what kind? I could always use new hair pins, I'm thinking something like this: image found here. Headbands too, though not too tight, and not ones that go all the way around my head (my hair is still too short in the back (only about an inch long) Does any art we may send need to be child safe, either in the actually safe sense or the non X rated sense? Nope! Send away! In the knitted/crocheted things area, would you want wrist warmers, 1/2 gloves, a neck warmer(the kind that pretty much just goes around your neck and maybe fastens instead of being long and loose like a scarf), slippers, or hats? I have a few favourites on my ravely favourites list, but I like wrist warmers, or even full fore arm warmers (biking I hate wearing a big sweater but it's going to get cooler before I decide to turn to my winter jacket.) How do you feel about altered/recycled/upcycled items of clothing or accessories? Sure! Is there anything you want from the Violette Market update? Not looking! (do you see a trend?) What is your favourite habitat and climate to live in? How about to visit? (ie. forest, canyons, mountains, by the beach; temperate, tropical...) I love mountains, and wish I could live near some. I also like my winter and autumn. What do you wish you could make/craft if you had the know-how and supplies? Specifically, which particular items? I would love to learn how to spin fiber into yarn. (I found a few "kits" on etsy as starters) Is there anything you would like from Conjure Oils general catalogue or the new updates that isn't already on your wishlist? Still not looking!!! Am I alone in this, or is there a Book Fair/Comic Con scent you're dying to get your paws on, too? Again, I tend not to covet what I know I can't get. Anyone need address/phone type books? Think I'm set. 9/17/10 Are there any particular movies, tv shows or cd’s that you’ve been meaning to buy for years but just never got round to getting? Would you mind a gently used dvd/cd if your witch had it or could get it?? I think I have a good amount of those on my amazon wl, and yes, as long as it doesn't skip I tend not to care where it came from (a good portion of the dvds Q and I own are previously viewd from Blockbuster.) Is there anything from the Possets' Hallowe'en update you're lusting after? I looked, but I can't remember, and I don't want to look again, I just can't afford to fall in love right now. Would you like a custom/altered toy either from a seller or from your witch (like My Little Pony, or a Barbie or any particular toy that can be changed?) Maybe a rubber ducky made to look like one of my fandoms. (I have a small collection of rubber duckies) Do you like the candy apple, candy corn or pumpkin spice kisses? Yes! Don't know, don't know! Though I wouldn't mind trying what I'm not sure of! LOL! Anne Taintor, anyone? Some of her stuff is amusing, but I'm kinda picky about that kind of thing I think. Which web comics do you enjoy? Questionable Content, xkcd, Oatmeal, Ensign Sue Must Die, there's another but for the life of me I can't remember the name, and I'm not sure what to search for... durr! 9/16/10 If I were to knit a scarf, would you prefer a skinny one, or a wide one? A short one, that when wrapped once around your neck will just tuck under your jacket, or a long one, at least to your waist? I like wide, medium length scarves, I tend to wear them over my head like a hood when it's really cold. Though there's a hood I have on my favourites list on ravelry that I want to make at some point, it's so cute! Don't like scarves? Would a rectangular shawl or triangular shawl be more to your taste? Any is good! How do you feel about recipes? YES! What kind of a cook/baker are you? I can be very ambitious, and like to cook/bake. Are you happiest calling for delivery or microwaving a lean cuisine, Or will Food Network be asking you to host their new program? lately I've been calling for delivery more then is really good, but Q and I have just been lazy about grocery shopping. If I send you something home made would you like the reciepe for it? Yes please! If you are someone who doesn't want baked goods sent, would you like a collection of some of my favorite recipes? I'd love the baked goods as well as the recipes! How about home made mixes or kits? Kind of like the cookie in a jar thing, where you would need to add the perishable ingredients? Sure! if you are a tea lover, what are your flavor preferences? Green? Black? Herbal (I know, technically those are NOT teas, but tisanes)? Flavored blacks/greens? Herbal is my favourite to be honest. I like some black and green teas though. I have recently favourited a bunch of teas from a shop on etsy, which could give you an idea of my favourite flavours. 9/15/10 How do you feek about silly, funny knick-knack, dollar store stuff, stickers, magnets etc? Would you like receiving that kind of stuff or rather not? I love stickers, but nothing else please, I have a hard time finding places for all my junk stuff as it is Is there a specific book you've been wanting to get but haven't found the time or the opportunity to? TOO many! Changes by Jim Butcher, The Last Unicorn, uh.... *blush* there are more, I just can't seem to think of them atm... Do you read mangas/watch animes? Which ones? Do you have a particular favourite? Would you like to receive managas or anything related to them? I have a bunch of Manga, and I'm not really interested in more to be honest. The only that I would be interested in if my witch could find them would be the 3rd, and 4th volume of the Return to Labyrinth, based on Jim Henson's Labyrinth, and any of the Sailor Moon graphic novels. I have a few but they're so hard to come by, I'm tempted to sell the few I have and just keep the digital file of them all. I would adore a full set though. Are you open to receiving things that are not on your wishlist, maybe something your Witch thinks you might like? I answered this in thread, but figuring out how to find my posts in the threads now is a pain in my arse, so I'll just say, Yes and no. I can be slightly picky when it comes to things, though I'm mostly all for stuff that is similar. which seems a contradiction, but it's just so hard for me to put into words. I would be happy with anything my witch picked out for me though (I'm weird) If you have something on a wishlist that we could craft INSTEAD of buying, though it might not end up identical to the wishlist thing, would it be okay to craft it instead? Obviously we don't want to copy anyone else's design, but if we can replicate the flavour or intent that you like without stepping on toes? OF COURSE! I think that's one of the main points of SW. OK, I know that lots of folks love socks. Do you have a preference of length? Materials? Patterns? I love socks, but tend to only wear ankle or knee length socks. Something a bit higher then ankle is ok too, and I love the Tabi style from Sock Dreams, they're the ones that have the big toe separate from all the rest. How do people feel about word magnets, I would love some! Dr. Who, Supernatural, Buffy, Sailor Moon, True Blood, Romance inspired. If you could have any costume, or if you aren't into costumes, necklace or other accessory, from any movie character, what would it be? I'm dying to get making my Cloud City Leia costume, and eventually make Q a Han Solo costume. I also want to make both costumes Leia wears in A New Hope. I love the costumes in The Tudors, and OMG so many others! (I need to start a list of stuff I want to make and see if I can start making stuff!) I also want a few pieces of "ren faire clothing" to mix and match so that when I go to a ren faire I have stuff to wear. I'm a wench at heart so something wenchy would be awesome. How do you feel about samples/decants of things other than BPAL? Soap slices, lotion/scrub/shower gel decants, single use make-up/beauty products, etc. Bring it on! What are you guys going to be aiming for in the Inquisition? Or do you just plan on ordering individual items? I want SO badly to get a Trick tissue tee, though I doubt I'll have the money to grab one before they go down. 9/14/10 Chocolate or other types of candy? mmmm Anything Peach flavoured, or orange with chocolate, raspberry with chocolate. I <3 Mars bars! For tea drinkers, do you prefer loose leaf or tea bags? Either! I can be lazy sometimes, and I only have 2 metal tea balls, and they're starting to get questionable lol! If you would enjoy something of a knitted persuasion, do you have a preference on type of thing? Since making a scarf for someone who has 10 might be a smidge excessive? Also, how do people feel about shawls? One can not have too many scarves! I have my favourites yea, but I do like having different choices! As for shawls, I like em, though I don't have any Is there a TV, movie or literary character that you are a lot alike, or would like to be alike? I find that I'm similar to Usagi Tsukino, (Sailor Moon) in that I care deeply about my friends and I can put other people before myself. Is there anything you need for your kitchen, ie measuring cups, spoons, grater, ect? I could really use one of those spoon rest things, I tend to just put the food covered spoon on the counter at the moment, or if I'm making from a package, I'll put it on the package. Music, DO you prefer Live or Studio? Edited or explicit? I enjoy live if I'm seeing it live, but prefer studio if I'm listening at home. And by all means, give me some explicit! I'm usually the one singing the proper lyrics during a radio edit. If you are an animal lover, is there a specific type/breed that you love most? I love cats, always have. Household cats I prefer siamese, or relation there of, and black cats. I love lions (um, ya think? lol!) and panthers. I also adore Otters! And most bird of prey as well, including Owls. Also flowers and plants- If you like flowers/plants, do you have a favorite(s)? I adore daffodils, and wild roses, lilly of the valley and orchids. Probably many others, but those are what I've got right now Do you have a favorite quotation? Song lyric? Book passage? WhateverthehecktheycalltheanonymousregionalwisdomthingiePROVERB! that word. I have a few, though I never really write them down. *shakes head* DH and I used "You find someone to carry you" as our wedding quote, and eventually I hope to get it tattooed somewhere. The song "For Now" from Avenue Q really touches me too, and I love listening to it. I have a few quotes on my fb page, and my lj profile. I just tend to forget quotes. I really kinda want to get a little book that all I do is write down quotes in it, either things said to me, or stuff said by friends. What is a bpal scent that you've been dying to try for awhile but just can't find? (A scent where even a tester would do) Only really really rare things it seems, namely Orange and Noir. Go ahead, laugh, you know you want to Let's say, hypothetically speaking, that you have some children/spawn (1 or more), and, hypothetically speaking, your witch would like to spoil them a little but knows nothing of kids these days. What do they like or dislike? Also is there anything a (sane) adult might think they would like that you don't think is appropriate for whatever reason? (I'm thinking of things like temp tattoos, make up, things that make noise, or anything else that might be bad for non-obvious reasons.) no worries, I has no kids. Yet anyway. Is there anything you would like that can be delivered over the internet? Things like fanfic recs, cat macros, mp3s you are looking for, how-to or amusing videos, things like that. I love reading fanfiction, I have a horrible soft spot for AH Twilight stories (AH=All Human) I like Buffy/Spike, Buffy/Giles stuff too, and I'm pretty open to others in the fandoms I like, but I prefer my fanfiction to be erotic/smut. What would your last meal be if it could be anything in the world (sky is the limit, drinks too, the whole shebang) Maryland Crab, with those biscuits from Red Lobster, Roasted garlic & chive mashed potatoes, Sushi, namely stuff with Eel and salmon, and thai salad rolls. I would also need to have a small piece (or two) of southern fried chicken, with biscuits and gravy, some gumbo and jambalaya in there too, (the sausage in the gumbo and jambalaya would need to be double smoked) Drink wise, I'd need an avacado milkshake, some japanese style green tea, some apple cider, and an Earl Grey Misto, with a couple shots of Jack to wash it all down. Yes I love food. Yes I glut myself all too often. *blush* NaNoWriMo? The idea intrigues me, but I have let myself bash myself into thinking I can't write and I'm having a VERY hard time getting creative again. 9/13/10 what interests you from the latest lab update? I was able to order decants of most everything, though I'm still interested in trying (like 1/4 imp) of Hallowe'en: New Orleans, Pom IV, and I kinda want to try Pumpkin Latte, even though I can't do her pumpkin note at all (could be a nice room scent, but I could just be fooling myself. LOL!) I'm also interested in trying the Bean Tea Party scent, but I'm slightly scared of the flowers! How do you feel about stationery, like nice pens or notepaper? And if you're in favor, do you prefer classic/contemporary or cutesy stuff? I love note paper and envelopes and such! I can never find stuff! I like cutesy stuff, like smiling sushi and stuff like that Would you like homemade preserves (e.g. marinated vegies, pickled onions, chilli jam?) I gotta be honest, I'm kinda picky about this kinda stuff, so best that it not get sent. If you've got stuff on your BPAL wishlist, would partial bottles be okay? I love partial bottles! Would you like something you have to make yourself, like a kit? Hum, probably? I know this isn't really a good answer, but I would probably like it. Say you were my witchee, and I found things on your wishlist that I could totally make. Would you want me to make it? Or would you rather it be purchased for you? Totally up for something you can make if that's how you want to do it! I like making things myself that I find on Etsy when I can find the supplies Who is your favorite soap etailer? I adore Paintbox as well as Villainess What about vintage decoration items, teacups, etc etc? I wouldn't mind something that can be used if it was vintage, but wouldn't like it as a decoration. With regards to your gifts, would you prefer your presents' awesomeness evenly spread out (several packages of pretty terrific things) over the round or a slow build-up of awesomeness (going up from pretty cool things to something super-duper cool at the end) to go out with a bang? Do you have a preference? It's up to you my dear witch! What kind of make-up do you wear? What colors? Is there anything you'd like to try but haven't yet? I don't wear much, as stated in my ?aire, but I wouldn't mind trying mineral eyeshadow. As for colours...

I like to have a fair amount of contact, I like knowing people are thinking about me, I'm home alone a lot lately, and it's boring being alone. Do you have a place where you list all the BPAL you have or have tried? I'm not so good with this *blush* Do you like maple sugar candy? No. Please not to be sending me this. What is your position on the chocolate & bacon flavor combination? I'm intrigued! I've been wanting to try for ages! If you are a tea-drinker do you need a tea-cozie for your pot?

Salt&Pepper, Garlic powder, Old Spice. Microsoft or Apple? I prefer Apple, but I can't afford it. I do have an iphone though. Where was your last vacation? What did you like most? That was 4 years ago, Q and I went to Panama, it was beautiful. I think I liked being away from home to be honest!

Celery, bell peppers, cauliflower. Would you be opposed to receiving a digital version (via email) of a magazine you like but don't subscribe to...you know, in the interest of saving a tree? I would like the physical magazine, only because I like to keep them and use them for crafty things. 9/12/10 Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to go to last.fm immediately and create an account! Download the scrobbler! Link us to your account! If you reject this assignment, maybe just tell us what your mp3 player says you listen to a lot? I may get to this if you need me too dear witch, just let me know. As for what I listen to a lot? My top 25 played aren't really the best to go off, since for like 3 weeks straight I was listening to only the Glee soundtracks on my ipod... lol! Any countries you're interested in? Would love to learn more about japan (know quite a bit already) Sweden, Finland, England (soft spot for England) And the rest of the UK actually (know very little about Wales) Would you enjoy homemade bath products (bath salts, fizzies, etc.) and/or linen sprays? Esp. if scented with some of your favorite BPAL scents? One of my favourite items from last round was some Boo scented lotion from Schackjj that was super nice! I would love any handmade bath products! If you witch made you something and it didn't come out just right, would you still want it? Of course I would! Are you a foodie? I love to cook, I love to eat, and I love foody perfume (though I can be picky! LOL!) Any sports fans in the house? What's your favorite sport/team/player? I love Nascar, and my driver is Tony Stewart, and Joey Logano. I like Hockey too, but not as much, and my team is the Montreal Canadians For holidays, do you decorate? Would you like decorative stuff, weenie or otherwise? If so, do you lean towards the elegant, the crafty/folksy, or the more, erm, campy? For some holidays I do! For Hallowe'en I haven't been decorating, though I'd love to get something to hang on my door (not sure what though... LOL!) Do you like journals/notebooks/sketchbooks? DO I? Oh yes! I love writing things in books lol! 9/11/10 Cake truffles? If YES! Cake/icing/chocolate type? Mmm Cake truffles! I'd love a spiced cake with creamcheese icing, and spiced milk chocolate!

Vampire shows, literature, etc? Yay or nay? I've been obsessed with vampires for a long fricken time! Twilight isn't actually vampires, but I do like Nancy Kilpatricks Vamperotica books (see a question further down) I also like True Blood, Buffy, Angel, Dracula (would love the book Dracula!) Besides True Blood I'm not really into the current vampires, though I wouldn't kick Jasper (Whitlock) Hale outa bed Dracula 2000 is one of my favourite movies that I don't have. If you play console video games, what game systems do you have and what games would you love to have? I love playing video games! I'm not a gamer girl by any means but I like playing them! I have a wii (wii points are awesome!) I have my own DSlite, and there's a ps2 and a game cube in the house. I also love Zelda and Mario games. How do you all feel about flowers and plants? Flower and plant seeds? Drawings of flowers or plants? Pressed flowers? I want to have a green thumb, but I don't think that anything would grow here unless it's VERY sun hardy! My balcony faces west and we get the sun from 2pm on. How do you feel about marzipan? mmmmmmmmmm If you could have 3 BPAL bottles fall (gently) out of the sky right this second that you've been looking for or pining for - which 3 would they be? Let's see, there would be a bottle of Gelt, a bottle of Shub-niggurath and Voodoo Queen (stop laughing ) Are there any international treats that you love and have a hard time finding? I adore Walker's crisps, in Prawn and Worcestershire flavours. TimTams are awesome too, and I love Old Bay Is there anything from the 'Ween BPTP update that you would like but haven't ordered for yourself? Sagardoa soap, Nut Crack Night room spray. If you are a crafter, would you like to receive supplies from your witch (beads, fabric, yarn/roving etc?) I love getting yarn for knitting, and I'm really interested in learning how to spin my own yarn, so roving would be neat as well! I also like to make jewellery, so wire, jumprings, stone beads, findings would be awesome too! I can always use more circular knitting needles too! Find your iPod (or other MP3 device), put it on shuffle/random. What are the first five songs to come up? I did 10, because my Soundtracks dominated, 1) Kelly Clarkson, I Hate Myself for Loosing You 2) CATS Musical soundtrack, Skimbleshanks, the Railway Cat 3) Repo! The Genitic Opera Cast, Lungs and Livers (25 second song, so I'm gonna do 6 rather then 5 random songs) 4) Spice Girls, Love Thing 5) The Producers Soundtrack, The King of Broadway 6) Monty Python's Spamalot soundtrack, The Song That Goes Like This 7) Rush, Fly by Night 8) Avenue Q, Fantasies Come True 9) Garbage, I Think I'm Paranoid 10) The Who, Behind Blue Eyes Soundtracks you'd like?: I would love to get another copy of the Across the Universe soundtrack (since I lost mine) I can't think of any others atm. Any concerts you'd like to see?: I would love to see David Bowie live, or Carbon Leaf would be nice! I Carbon Leaf! 9/10/10 Would you like a bag of dried Honeycrisp apples? YES YES, A THOUSAND TIMES YES! If you were to receive a knitted item (such as a scarf, hat, etc), what colors would you like? And do you have any sensitivies/allergies to any materials?: I love knitted items, and have always wanted a pair of socks, but I love fingerless gloves/mits and have always kinda wanted a pair of mittens too! I love orange/yellow/brown and green, and lately have been wanting some blue, a nice deep sapphire blue. Gift Certificate: physical or email? Prefer Email (I'm with the others on the instant gratification Favorite Yankee Candles? Or other brands scents? I'm not sure... I don't know if I've ever smelled Yankee candles. I like the smell of beeswax, and someone said something about a beeswax clove candle and that would be perfect! would you like a zuni animal fetish? And if so, what animal? I'm not sure I have the place to put it And how does everyone feel about glow in the dark radishes? Those are cute, but not something I'd wear. What places to do you visit that you'd like a gift card to? Starbucks, Target, Wal-Mart, B&N, a favorite restaurant or clothing shop? Starbucks, Paintbox soap works, villainess, sock dreams, amazon. Though if it were Starbucks, it'd probably have to be purchased in Canada for it to work... Cake or Frosting? Pie. 9/9/10 What movie scared the bejeezus out of you as a child? Odd as it sounds, I could never watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (original) not sure why... As for scaring me, I once watched a zombie movie, I think it was Dawn of the Dead, or some such movie (again original) and I went around the house looking under things, like the kitchen table..., because I was scared that zombies had gotten into my house. Name a couple of sites you frequent other than this one Facebook, twitter, Questionable Content, It Made My Day, LOLcats, graphjam, Dlisted Do you like the Muppets? Which is your favorite? Don't think I have a favourite, but that cat from the cat came back video was adorable! If you could have any creature (real or imaginary) as a pet, what would it be? For real it'd be an Otter, hands down. Imaginary, CJ7 (chinese movie, at least I think it's chinese! I have a stuffed one, they're so cute!!!) or a dragon maybe? Comfort Rereads?:Tamora Pierces Tortall series, Garth Nix Abhorsen trilogy, The Witch of Blackbird Pond. Will you be going out of town during the round, or is there any other time during the round when it would not be ideal for you to receive a package from your witch? Nope! Staying home and stalking! If you are in school now, what classes are you taking? Does anything you are currently studying really interest you? (if you are not in school, is there anything you are trying to learn?) I can't think of anything... What animal would your daemon be? Alternately, your patronus. I took the test and ended up with Otter, and that works for me! What's YOUR favorite word? Digress. Alert. Steampunk, yay or nay? If yay, what part appeals most? Yay, I like it, but I'm not sure what appeals, maybe the clothing itself, in that it's one of my favourite time periods that they're pulling from. 9/8/10 Do you have a special symbol or totem that is meaningful to you? The Oak tree, it represents strength, and it's what I use when I feel like I have none left. I also love the Moon as a symbol, and the wind (which is rather hard to visualize...) Also wanted to add 7 pointed stars, and labyrinth images (the symbol, not the movie ;P ) For totems, Otters, ravens, black cats, spiders, lions. Do you need a box for your bpal bottles? Your imps? Your something else to put in a box stuff? I would love an imp box, since right now they're just in a flat rate box.... If you could be any person, being, or animal from Fantasy what or who would you be? For person, I'd be an Abhorsen from Gart Nix's Abhorsen series. For being, I adore the Disreputable Dog, also from the Abhorsen series, as for animal, a Gryphon I think? Or maybe just a vampire LOL! (But not a twiampire, those aren't really vampires.) If you could go back to any point in time, where, when, why? Need to think about this one a bit more. I have this big fascination with Queen Elizabeth the 1st, so I might go to her court. I also love the Regency period, again in London. I also would love to go back to the time of the Norse gods, or back to Greece when they were building the monuments to the Gods. Favorite Halloween Candy/Treat? Reese pumpkins are awesome as are small Mars Bars (I <3 them!), I love candy apples, but the red candy candy apples, not the newer types with chocolate and caramel. I don't actually remember if I've ever eaten candy corn... What are your favorite baked goods/homemade treats? I love cookies! I've always wanted to try snickerdoodles, but I like pumpkin cookies, chocolate chip, cookies with nuts (walnuts or filberts are the best!) and I like tea flavoured shortbreads. Would you like an astrology birthchart?: I would love one! I have a book, but I'm not on the up and up yet, still learning! 9/7/10 Socks? Sock Dreams? Anyone? OMG yes! my favourite Sock Dreams type socks are tabi, where the big toe is separate from the rest of the toes. What is something you use to comfort yourself when feeling yucky, depressed, or in pain? Tea, usually a ginger or peppermint tea, curl up with my favourite blanket and either watch a movie (usually something I've seen a million times, like Ever After, Ella Enchanted, Labyrinth) or read a cheesy romance novel. I find I sleep a lot when I'm sick too. Favorite Halloween/Scary movies/books: I really like Halloweentown, they were a great series! I like watching some horror, but mostly Q is the one that rents them. I do like the RE series (games and movies, and am going to start reading the books) Never seen Hocus Pocus (though I'd love to) and it's been ages since I saw The Nightmare Before Christmas. What would the name of your custom blend be? The description? I'm gonna have to get back to you on this one. lol! COMIC BOOKS. Do you read them? Are there any series you like, or some you would like to try? Love comic books/graphic novels/manga! I have a bit of a collection, but wouldn't mind getting something new If my witch wanted I could give them a list of what I do have. Warm drinks? I love apple cider, and love teas and tisanes. I'm open to all kinds of teas/tisanes, but prefer that they don't taste too strong. I also am starting to like coffee a little bit, but it must be decaf. I also like hot chocolate, but it's not something I drink very often. 9/6/10 When you go to an etsy wishlist, it will tell you what things are sold. If you click on the sold item, sometimes it will give options that are similar to what was sold, but not identical, would you like the similar item or prefer not to get it at all unless it's the same item? How picky are you? I think most of the stuff on there can be used as an idea of what I like, I might be picky about some of it, but probably not lol! Do you wear make up? Yes sometimes, I'm interested in trying mineral eye shadows since all I tend to wear is eye liner, mascara, eyeshadow and lip balm/gloss. Disney movies, Yay or Nay, and favourites if you do like them? I adore most Disney, but I prefer pre 2000 stuff, favourites include: Hunchback of Notre Dame (I <3 Clopin) The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast (Beast in human form is yum) Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, The Rescuers, The Sword in the Stone, The Black Cauldron, The Lion King, Pocahontas, Hercules, and while I prefer the stuff from before I do enjoy The Emperor's New Groove, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Meet The Robinsons, Bolt, and would like to see Treasure Planet. (Of these I own Aladdin & Hunchback) I also love the Narnia films (Own the first one) I also enjoyed the 3rd Cinderella movie, A Twist in Time. Do you have A VCR, DVD Player or Blue Ray or a combo of the three? I have a VCR and DVD player. Would you like custom icons as a gift?: Custom Icons would be great! 9/5/10 What is your favourite snack food, something you could grab any time?: I have a couple, I love dried fruit, prefer dried apples, but like pretty much all of it. I love rice cracker mix! <3 It's so yummy, with a hint of soy sauce flavour on the outside. (Damn now I want some, I haven't had it in a while! Need to find a Bulk Barn) And Worcestershire flavoured crisps. I am DYING for some right now! E-books: Sure! I don't have a reader, but I assume I could get a program for my iphone Nail Polish: I LOVE nail polish, and would love to try some of the Zoya brand. I'm also running out of base&top coats. I like RED reds, blues, purples, pinks, greens, browns, silvers. I'd love Metalic silver/gold/copper/bronze colours. Soft/plushy things: I love the plushy things! I like the Plushy Microbes! My favourites are: Anthrax, beer yeast, chicken pox, cough, egg, flu, kissing disease, plague, red blood cell, sore throat, sperm, swine flu & yougurt What hobby/craft would you like to learn how to do? I would love to learn how to spin yarn. I've seen people do it before and it's just awesome looking! and the colours of fleece that you can get! For those who decorate for Halloween, do you prefer cute decorations or creepy ones?: I like slightly creepy cute, and devilishly cute type decorations. I love black Cats ravens and spiders for decorations. (I love spiders) I want to say though that I'm not a big fan of gore type decorations. Also, as part of the cute-or-creepy question, would you want hand made, molded, glazed (by yours truly!) ceramic decorations (napkin rings, potporri/tart warmers, etc) to add to your stock? I would love a tart warmer, since I don't have one at this time. how do you feel about mortars and pestles I love my Mortar and Pestle, but I can always use more! (The one I have is used for savoury spices, I'd like one for tea leaves) Is there anything you have a phobia of, or that would make you go "squick" if you saw it in a package? No clowns, no china dolls (or similar type dolls with the glass eyes) no vomit or other human excrement, actually no excrement of any kind, fake or real. I think that's it. 9/4/10 Are you into Austen's books? I've had trouble reading them, but like the movies! I only own the 2005 P&P Do you read Tarot cards? If not, would you be interested? I have a couple sets if my own, I wish I could read them better, but I guess I do just fine. I can't wait for Stephanie Pui-Mun-Law's Tarot deck to come out! So for those of you who are into Harry Potter at all, which house do you think you'd be sorted into? I answered this in the thread too, and again lost my post about it.... I thought I'd be sorted into Hufflepuff, but would prefer Gryffindor, and ended up with Ravenclaw after taking that little quiz thing someone posted. What, if anything, is your guilty TV watching pleasure? I love True Blood, and The Tudors as kinda a soft core porn type show I love the Food Network, and I have a soft spot for challenge cooking shows (chopped, dinner impossible, top chef) If you cosplay or need a costume for your bellydance/burlesque hobby (or any other hobby which needs dressup/different from your normal wear), is there anything you need/want for it? I want to start cosplay, but I don't know where to start! I would love to make a few of the Princess Leia costumes from A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back, and I'd like to make a Sailor Moon costume of some sort (not sure which scout or costume) but I can't think of anything off the top of my head. Sorry! I do know I'd like to get some Ren Fair clothes, probably a wench costume of some sort Celebrity crush?: Many I adore Gary Oldman, Jensen Ackles, David Tennent, Natalie Portman, David Bowie, Keira Knightly, And probably more! Biggest crush is on someone who doesn't exist, (though dear witch you're probably getting tired of reading this by now) Leon S. Kennedy. This is actually the same image I have for my desktop right now, and he's on my iphone too. Knitted things?: I've ALWAYS wanted a pair of hand knit socks, I'm just not experienced enough at the moment to make them. What about [mixed or otherwise] DVDs? By all means! DVDs: Do you prefer widescreen or formatted? I like widescreen, but again it doesn't really matter. Music: Any preference towards MP3 or CD? Either or, doesn't much matter to me! It's just going to end up on my computer and put into itunes anyway Do you like scented tarts? Yes, but I don't really have a burner for tarts. I do like foody scents for tarts, or autumn scents. (Bath and Body works had a great candle in a jar called Falling Leaves, and it was heavenly!) Stuff with cinnamon or stuff like that is usually pretty good. Lip balms? I love lip balms, I like My Lip Stuff, and have always wanted to try Ganache for lips Do you have any body mods? If so, do you need any new jewelry, o-rings, plugs, etc (and if so, what size, length, etc)? Do you like pro-body mod stickers? I have a bunch of tattoos, (with plans for MANY more!) And I'm actually thinking of getting my lip pierced, but Don't know how that would look. Pre body-mod stickers for a stud piercing would be kinda neat. Booze. Do you drink it, would you like some?: I like my Jack Daniel's, and don't mind a few other things, but I don't think Booze can be shipped? What is your favorite artist or art style? (including if you have links to favorite pictures/paintings/photographs) I adore Art Nouveau! It's just so beautiful, and my favourite artist is Mucha. I also like this guys Disney Heroes Collection. Ahh hot imaginary men in underwear, yea I like it! I also like nude art, but I think Q would prefer to see the female form to the male, I say send either one! I also adore Stephanie Pui-Mun-Law I also like vintage pin-up girls 9/03/10 Hallowe'en plans? Probably, nothing. Though I'm gonna see what parties are happening and maybe go to one. I don't really have a costume this year, I hate wearing the same thing every year, and don't have the money to make one, so I might go through my fabric stash and see if there's anything I can make. Mix CDs? Oh yes! I love listening to new music! Girlyness level? I answered this in the thread, and now have lost my answer! I'm a jeans and tshirt gal, but like my fitted tees rather then crew. I wear skirts sometimes, but rarely, and I love painting my nails (finger and toe) Like doing some stuff to my hair, but usually just pull it back in a pony when it's long enough (I'm growing it out, so anything to hold hair back, bobby pins, small combs, small clips would be AWESOME!) and I like pink things, but not clothes. I like random pink things, like my cd case, or my ipone case, or my DSlite, or other random house hold things. I really want to get a bubblegum pink bath towel set. (I'd like to see Q steal my towel then! ) 9/02/10 Baked goods: Ooooh yes please! Gifts for other household members: I'm sure Q would love something! He got a bath bomb before that is still not used, (I will get him in the bath soon!) but he loves anything Horror related, He even rents Horror movies in other languages because he just loves them that much! Are you someone who'd rather have lots of small testers of different things on your wishlist, or would you rather have one or two "big" things? I think my WL is pretty clear on that, I have bottle wants and imp/decant only wants, but any of my bottle wants can be decants as well, and the imp/decant only is usually just to test/sniff so they could just be small amount testers. social networking usernames, ie twitter, facebook, livejournal, ravelry, anything else: Twitter is AutumnsLioness, LJ is Autumns_Lioness, Ravelry is AutumnsLioness, if you'd like my FB name, just pm me would you like to receive Groupons or similar deals/gift certificates from your Witch?: No thanks. How about tshirt/bottoms sizes? For jammies: usually Lg bottoms, and Lg to XL top (it's the bewbies) Normal shirts are the same, but I prefer babydoll or fitted tees rather then crew.

  13. This is where you'll be able to find the questions people ask in the thread on a day to day basis. I will try to update it in the evening of every day and include all questions asked that day. I will be going by Forum time for the days (some questions are in on the wrong days, but that's ok, I'm pretty sure I'm catching them all!) 11/3/10 So what do you want from Paintbox Soapworks' Yule release? 11/1/10 Would you like a box filled with Christmas/Yule treats? Darling Witchee, are you in on this NaNoWriMo craziness? Would you like motivational pings/writing instruments/lovely blank books in which to pen your masterpiece 10/29/10 Did you know BPAL is on etsy with leftover trunk show bottles? Would you like any of them? 10/28/10 Would you prefer to have your final package before Halloween or have a reveal package at the end of the round? Do you prefer lip balm in a tube or tin? 10/21/10 What are you most interested in from the Yule update? 10/20/10 If you were my witchee, would you want to receive Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict, or wouldn't that be your cup of classics? Would you like some homemade snack mix? Knitterly Witchees, would you like a yarn bowl? 10/18/10 So....let's say that you're my witchee, and you have an affinity for widgets. Let's also pretend that I sent you one of these widgets, but in a form that has a very special personal significance to me. Would you find that to be touching (in a "Yay, now I'll always use this and think of my witch!" way) or tacky (in a "My witch is making this all about her!" way)? Have you had a chance to try Halloweenies? If so, which ones are you really really in love with this year? Pocket shrines! Would you like one, made for a particular obsession of yours? 10/14/10 Do you prefer scented or unscented lotions/moisturizers? 10/13/10 Today I got one of the Starbucks Halloween Bearista Bears - it's dressed like a werewolf! Is this something witchees might like? Are you interested in Halloween costumes for your pet(s)? 10/12/10 Would you want your witch to reveal herself? How? 10/9/10 I came home with some Dungeon Crawl and some Bedbugs yesterday. If you were my witchee, would you want some of either/both? 10/7/10 Did you forget anything fun/interesting or find something new and exciting? 10/5/10 Would you like to receive international magazines, even if you don't speak the language it's written in, just to ogle the pictures or for the novelty of it? If yes, what kind of magazines, or what magazines in particular? would you have interest in any of the new Christmas stuff from Lush? Oh, witchee-poo... if there was one bottle you could have from the NYCC exclusives, what would it be? If someone were to make you one of the items in this post which would it be?

    Banshee Beat

    Oh noes!!! I was hoping, and also not hoping (so maybe I'm happy about this?) that this scent would work on me, but it's just... Not. In the imp it's very patchouli, with something else that I'm assuming is Hemp, but I can't say cause I've never smelled it before. Once on my skin it's getting slightly cedar-y, which is not good (cedar is a headache inducing note) and it's reminding me of a friends cabin. Once dry I'm getting faint whifs of the vanilla and the patchouli, but once the hemp realizes that they're attempting to be seen he engulfs them once again, and it's just fainly sweet cedar. I don't have a headache from it, (yet) but I don't think this is something I could wear. Now to decide if I'm happy about this or not...

    Teatime in Roswell

    This was a bottle that I ordered unsniffed. This is one of two that I've ordered unsniffed in the past 6-8 months, the other being Boo. Boo worked amazingly on me, and my luck has continued with this blend! in the bottle I get cake with a little something else, my nose isn't the best yet, but I'm thinking it's a greenness from the cucumber. on my skin it's the most glorious scent in the world! Have you ever had Earl Grey tea with milk and sugar? You know those last few sips where the tea has gone cold, but it still tastes amazing? That taste is what this smells like! I feel like I'm drowning in a lovely, cool cuppa! After a while the scent disappeared, which made me sad, but oddly I could still get a few wiffs of it when I turned my head. Today(I tested this yesterday) while I was doing some cleaning, I kept smelling cake, and it smelled amazing! I was smelling it still the next day while I was sweating! I really really want to be able to get at least one backup of this, I think it's amazing!!!
