    The leather that i found most similar to Haunt's Winchester was Western Diamondback. Probably equally hard to track down.

    Switch Witch 2012 #1

    Hello my darling Witch! I'll try to keep caught up with questions every few days in my blog. I'll make a new post each time instead of having a giant text block of doom for you to have to read through. If you ever need to know something sooner, or I missed it somehow, please poke me! XOXXOX Do you have a forum buddy? Someone who knows you and/or your tastes well enough to answer questions on your behalf? Arlith lives nearish me, and probably has a good idea of what I like. If you are on Livejournal, would you appreciate LJ stuff like paid time, custom userheads, stuff like that? If you are NOT on LJ but are on other sites that have similar paid-for services (Flickr, for example?) would you, and what are those sites/etc? No Thanks if you are into tarot, what is your favorite card? No Thanks would you like your own set of handmade rune stones or worry stones? No Thanks Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cider, or none of the above? Hot Chocolate and cider. Gum, hard candy, soft candy, or none of the above? Not a big gum chewer, but everything else is good. Loose tea or tea bags? Do you need anything for your loose tea? (Filters, presses, etc.) No Thanks Do you do Goodreads or LibraryThing or a site like that? If so, can I see your to-read list, please? Not on one of those. Are you a gamer (of any sort - video, casual, tabletop) and are there any games you want? No Do you like coffee? If so, what kinds? Flavored, fancy, basic? Beans or ground? No Thanks Would a Starbucks gift card make you happy or do you prefer your local place? No Thanks. Closest Starbucks is over an hour and a half away. Would you be interested in BPTP CANDY? Yes, but not an OMG MUST HAVE! CUSTOM-Made Pottery?? yea or nay? coffee mugs, rustic or more elegant? a set of bowls? soap dish? bird feeder? something alltogether different? and lastly, good colors for glazes...? I would LOVE THIS!!! Anything! Although, I do have enough bird feeders, and I do try not to buy too nice of ones because the bears tend to eventually get to them. Songs that you keep meaning to buy but never get round to it? No Movies that you love but forgot to put in your questionaire? No Name one movie you keep meaning to buy, but just never get around to getting? I don't really buy movies. There are only a handful of things that I care to watch more than once, and I think I own all of those already. Any favorite Bath & Body Works scents/products? Haus of Gloi is offering custom perfumes - would you like one? What would your ideal blend be? See the notes in the original questionnaire Any Bath, Body or nutritional type items you would love to try from a Natural and Organic food store (similar to Whole Foods) that you don't buy because they are a bit too pricey? No Thanks Tell me of your taste preferences. Dry/sweet? Red/white? Lager/ale/porter/stout? Fruit? Spice? Hops? Sour (brettanomyces, etc)? are there any if MeiLin's books (e-book or print) you'd be interested in? I think I've read them all. I'm about to be near a Lush store next week, is there anything you might like from there? I haven't tried much Lush, but I got a scrubby bar sapped like an igloo as a gift last winter that I liked. I don't remember the scent, but the scrubbiness was perfect. Also, I love the Karma scent. Witchee, will you be gone from your normal mailing address at any point during the round? Possibly. Work thinks I might like to take an assignment for 14 days somewhere. If I can't convince them that isn't a good idea, the fireman will still be here to get mail. Are you a Disney fan or does even thinking about Disney make your head hurt? If you're into Disney, would you like something from the Happiest Place on Earth ? Disney is ok, but I'm not a rabid fan, so I can't think of anything I'd like other than a post card or something like that. dear witchee, would you, could you use an electric candle warmer? i'm talking something like this. YES!!! I love candles, but won't light them in some rooms for fear they will be forgotten. I'd also love to get an electric tart thingy. Do you lust after some new socks/tights? Socks, always! The ankle high kind are the only ones that are safe right now because of my stupid leg. I love big thick fuzzy fluffy kind, and I can sometimes find fun ones at the Dollar General store that are perfect. Ninjas or Pirates? Does it make me boring if I say neither? I have an extra room spray and 2 extra bath oils (one Cephalopod, one Exhibit Hall Fatigue) from Dragon*Con - would anybody like a decant? Love it! I live near a Mast General Store. It has lots of vintage-y toys, southern foods (jams, jellies, spices) and vintage candy. Is there anything I can get for you? Whatever you think I'd like. Do you have any Fall or Halloween traditions? Normally I'm working, or on call because Halloween is a fun time to start the woods on fire. Also Nov. 1 is my Dad's birthday, so we try to get together with him. a) Are you OK with "special deliveries"? Sure. Is the address in your questionnaire the best place to reach you for said deliveries? Yes c) If the delivery requires a phone number (as say, some florists do) would you be OK with that information being tracked down by your Witch or asked of you anonymously? Sure. Would you be interested in beer, wine, or other specialty beverages from your Witch's area? I'm not a big drinker, and I detest beer (very embarrassing story about trying my first beer and first cigarette at the same time as a 14 year old, and throwing up all over the cute senior boy I was trying to impress with my coolness). However, if there is something you think I would like, and you can get a smallish bottle of it, I'd love to try it. I do like sweet wines and champagnes. Are there any crafts/skills you've wanted to learn but haven't gotten around to? And if so, would you be interested in supplies and tutorials? Soooo Many. I'll think about this. Who here would be happy to get a lil' sumthin sumthin from Adagio Teas? No Thanks Do you Ravelry? And if so, what's your handle over there? Would you be interested in gift patterns from your queue? No Thanks Who likes Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses? No Thanks Put your iPod/MP3 player/what-have-you on random and list the first 10 songs it plays! I'm going to show my age and uncoolness again. I don't have any of those. I do download audio books to my phone that I listen to while I'm driving. Witchee, what are your favorite quotes? What's one random thing you really like and one random thing you really dislike? I love cute office supplies. Sticky notes, glittery pens, I could break the bank at Office Max. I really hate sad endings. In books, movies, tv. I hate it! I read/watch those things to relax and enjoy myself. It pisses me off when they make me cry. Are there any herbs that you haven't been able to lay hands on that I could send you? There's an herbal shop I really like here in NYC called Flower Powerthat has quite a wide selection. No Thanks If there are no "witchy" shops near you, is there anything I can pick up for you from Enchantments? No Thanks Some of your favorite artists? Classic and modern? I'll post some pictures of my house in the thread so you can get an idea of what I like. If you could have an image or certain subject painted for you on any type of "canvas" (on a box, on paper, on a canvas, and so on) - could you point your witch to some of these images? I have a water color that my mom had done of my golden retriever that is one of my most treasured possessions. I'd like to get something done with Madame Cee Cee's picture on it, but I'm not sure what. Is there a GC scent that's been on your list for ages but keeps falling off the bottom of your order because of the LEs? Old Demons of the First Class, Dorian, I've been getting into indie nail polish brands recently. What's your favorite indie brand of nail polish? Or what's your favorite mainstream brand of nail polish? Or are you not big on polish? No Thanks Stuffed things: yea or nay? YEA!!!! mix-in-a-jar? How to you feel about cookie or cake or soup mixes that come in jars and you just add, like, an egg or water or what have you? Love it! Also, if you include the recipe I'd be thrilled! I live near this very cool Retro store (you can order online too) - are there things from it that would make you squee if your witch sent them? Would you enjoy receiving cute but useful items like colorful kitchen utensils/gadgets, or bento supplies? (boxes, chopsticks, accessories, etc?) What about things like spice mixes (homemade, or Penzey's for example) Always! No chopsticks or bento supplies, though. Do you like cute, seasonal or fluffy PJ bottoms? Like they sell at Target, Old Navy (they have had cute Halloween ones!) If so, what size do you wear? I like them, but do to having the same body type as an Oompa Loompa, I need to pick them out. What kind of chocolate do you like? Nuts, no nuts, white,dark, etc? White, then milk, but no dark, please. Nuts are great. My favorite are the Lindt white chocolate truffles in the blue wrappers. I live near a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Penzeys! What does your little heart desire from any or all of these places? Whatever you think I might like. Are home made foods acceptable or does the idea of eating strange mailed food disturb you? Homemade is awesome! But please, no hiding onions in it. I just gave you $20 and sent you into a "has everything" store ala Walmart and told you that you have to come out having spent it all, and none of it on anything you need. What would you buy? Be as specific as possible! Sparkly pens in funky colors, ribbons for crafting, Coke. What kind of cuisines do you like? (I mentioned this in my ?aire but curious what my witch may like)And, what are your favorite restaurants? I'm a huge fan of anything Italian! I also like a lot of sea food. I don't live near any chain restaurants, but we do like going to nice supper clubs. I'm from Canada - is there anything specifically a witchee might like that is only available here? No Thanks what are your "fandoms" and would you like a t-shirt from TeeFury if an appropriate one came up? No Thanks Do you have an eReader and if so which one? Kindle Do you like candles, or tart burners, or something? If so, what's your favorite scent to burn? YES! Anything that makes my house smellier! My favorite is Yankee Candle Midsummer Night, followed closely by Witches Brew. Marzipan? No Thanks Would you be interested in washable/reusable muslin “paper” towels (basically muslin squares hemmed around the edge)? Maybe in some sort of box to put on your kitchen or bathroom counter? No Thanks Do you drink alcohol and if so, would you be OK with your witch sending you homemade infused vodka? Also, does your state allow alcohol to be shipped through the mail? It probably wouldn't get a lot of love from me. If you get me (or a fellow Aussie, if there are any playing this round) as a witch or witch's minion, would you like to try some Australian specialties, such as TimTams (delicious chocolately cookies), Caramello Koalas (koala shaped chocolates filled with gloopy caramel), Australian native spices or anything like that? I believe that I've mentioned my love of the Black Forest TimTams! And the Koalas! Anything from Upsidedown land would be great. If your witch is a knitter, crocheter or sewer, is there a particular type of garment you would love to receive (hat, scarf, wrap, cowl, socks, fingerless gloves, arm warmers etc)? I don't wear hats a lot, because I have a lot of hair, and it just looks weird. Fingerless gloves seem absolutely pointless to me. My fingers get cold. They would like to be wrapped in yarny goodness too! Kind of the same thing with arm warmers. I have arm warmers. They are called sweaters. BUT, I adore gloves, scarves, cowls, wraps... Is there anyone else in your house (kids, pets, partner) that would really appreciate a small gift being included for them in the switchwitchy haul so they don't feel left out? The little dog is convinced that everything that comes into the house is for her anyway... The fireman has never been around for any kind of swap, so he certainly doesn't expect anything, but would be thrilled to be remembered. Since it's been mentioned several times, and I've also offered to nacho witch some, would you you like to receive wild rice and or maple syrup? I promise to include recipe ideas with the wild rice. Please no maple syrup for me. Dad mentioned that the stock pile in his basement was getting low. He was under 1,000 gallons now... I'm not sure who he's planning on making pancakes for! I have 5 bushels of tomatoes sitting in the kitchen right now that are supposed to turn into red sauce tomorrow, so would anyone like a basic red sauce (spaghetti sauce) to make its way to them? How would you feel about a taste of (insert witch location here) box I would love it! Last year, my wonderful witch Alethia adopted a bat for me from batworld.org, a bat rescue and sanctuary. Bat's World Would you be interested in having a bat adopted in your name? I think that would be sweet, as would any adopt an animal program. Do you like s'mores and s'mores-flavored things? I like real smores, over a campfire. Smore flavored, not so much. What's the neatest freebie you've gotten? It can be cool or thoughtful or just totally unexpected, and not limited to BPALdom. A ring that Dark Alice sent me when we swapped. She had no idea, but it fit perfectly, and was exactly like my late mother's wedding band, which was a size 4, and sits in my jewelry box. I wore the band from DA every day until the fireman gave me the big sparkly ring this Aug.

    Patient Friendly Oils

    I have to go against the trend here, and just say skip the scents. I love smellies, and the heavier the better. No scents have ever really bothered me, sometimes I wouldn't like them, but scent h as s never caused a physical reaction in me. Then I got to spend quality time in the hospital for knee issues (almost 4 weeks in the course of 3 months). I'm not sure what happwned, but I woke up one day and couldn't handle any scent of any kind. One day a gal came in to get my lunch tray and I had such a reaction they had to call some kind of code which brought all sorts of people running because I couldn't breathe. The culprit turned out to be a bath and bodyworks pocket bac. The kicker was that I had yhe same kind in my purse and it had never bothered me. I kniw that's not the answer uoi want, but heaven forbid somone have a freak reaction like mine, and I would think you could be in serious trouble for violating policy. Just my 2¢. Intetestingly enough the only thing I could tolerate the smell of was Ugh massage oil. And I craved the smell of that!
  4. My tastes are changing but I've been passing over my heavier loves lately for bright, bubbly and citrus. My favorite for super sticky weather is Death of the Grave Digger. Normally mint and I don't play well, but it works here. I'm also a huge fan of Bon Viviant and Skytyping with Chemtrails.
  5. High Strung Daisies is very pink sugar to me.

    If you can find it If would highly suggest The Twisted Oak Tree, a Haloweenie from '07. It's blackened oak, moss, and ivy. All woodsy and outdoorsy, but very little sweetness.

    Ordering Imps

    If you look on the Fraggle Rock page it says that due to the nature of the project imps are not available. You should be able to join a decant circle, though.

    Winter Swap Questions

    Winter Holiday Swap 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? Lindt White Chocolate Stracciatella Truffles (the ones in the blue wrappers), fun eye make up, glittery purple, bronze or grey liners, sparkly pink or purplish lip gloss, fuzzy socks. AAA batteries (because I never remember to buy them), any good smelling room sprays or candles. A book if any of them look interesting. 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 LOVE Penzey’s and I miss living near one! I like (and can use) most of the baking spices right now. Especially vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, all spice… Those are the ones that I can think of right off hand. I also love to try new things, and would be thrilled to receive any of their sets or gifts. (They also have really yummy hot chocolate mix!) 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?)? I am a sucker for anything handmade! I have a lot of examples of things that I like in my Etsy wish list. I don’t think I could find a use for fingerless gloves or arm warmers. I could really use a pair of warm mittens. I’ve recently seen a hooded scarf that looked like something I would get a lot of use out of, too. The only colors that I’m not very fond of are mustardy yellows, golds and oranges. hey swap partner...could you use a new mug? I could really use a largish, insulated travel mug to use at work for hot chocolate. Is there any sort of regional food/drink/treat you miss or have always wanted to try? PLEASE TO NOT BE SENDING ME ANY MAPLE SYRUP!!! My family makes it every spring, and at last count there were 159 gallons in the basement! Also, my fox can pretty much be assured that she will be receiving some if she indicates she would enjoy it! I I’m slightly rabid over Black Forest TimTams, and am currently considering retiring to Australia to be able to get an unlimited supply of them! Girasol is completely to blame for this, BTW. She also sent me some caramel koala bears that I would be willing to stab a baby with a fork over, too. Otherwise I like Cadbury chocolate, and I’ve seen people raving about flake bars, but I’m not sure what they are, but if they are chocolate I’m pretty sure they would not be set around waiting to be tested for long! Do you do a Christmas tree? No, I don’t do a Christmas tree. Last year I did 7 Christmas trees. The most I’ve ever done was 13, and that was just a little silly! This year I will do at least 4. I do one in the kitchen/dining room that is decorated with gingerbread men, candy canes, dried fruit, antique cookie cutters and red plaid bows and such. I do a tree in my office that is a fun tree, ornaments that have come from swaps, and friends, and are silly and make me smile. This tree has the ornaments that Hannah the cat likes best at her level. This tree is also attached to the wall with wires and I-bolts! The tree in my bedroom is usually done with gold or silver ornaments, white lights, teddy bears and lots of pink flowers and dried babies breath, kind of Victorian/romantic looking. The tree in the living room, that Santa visits, has all of my antique ornaments from my grandparents and mom, and the special ones. This tree is also attached to the wall with wire and I-bolts. Depending on who is visiting I’ll do a tree themed for that person in the guest room. I’ve done fishing, football, baseball, stock cars and tractors before. I also have little trees in each bathroom and some ceramic ones scattered here and there. It really does look like the Christmas fairy threw up at my house by the time I’m done! Would you like a special ornament? I would love one! As you can tell from the above answer, I’m sure I’ll have no trouble finding a home for it! As you can tell, I’m a holiday freak! One of the things I love to do is bake and make candy! Pretty much anyone who comes to my house is forced to take a bag of goodies home with them. The last few years I’ve done upwards of 300 dozen assorted treats. I’ve already started stockpiling the butter, sugar and flour for this year’s insanity. I do lots of traditional Scandinavian cooking where the main ingredients are butter, sugar, flour, and some more butter. Maybe an egg. Then just for fun, sometimes we deep fry all of the butter/sugar/flour instead of baking it. Now, a question of my own: 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? 10. Would any Bunny like to receive Holiday serving bowls, trays, platters etc...? Winter/Christmas or Thanksgiving/Fall themed? Absolutely! More plates/trays/bowls/platters etc. just give me more things to fill! 11. My lovely fluffy Snow Bunny, would you like a body scrub 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? I love scrubs (the scrubbier the better)! I like citrusy and pine essential oils. Please no cinnamon or other warming types. 12. 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? I have a serious candle addiction! If it will burn and/or melt, and will make my house smelly, then bring it on! I use lots of pillars and tarts. My favorite candle scents are Witches Brew and Midsummer Night from Yankee Candle. Anything that has patchouli in it is usually a winner. I also like pine scents at Christmas. I really don’t care for cinnamon or bayberry scents. Heavily scented and little to no decoration. I also really like everything that I’ve gotten from Dark Candles 13. 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.... I think I have to say no to the bar soap. Not because I don’t like it, but really, I could probably send everybody in this swap a bar or two and still have enough to get through the next few years! Of course, if you find something that you think I would LOVE than, by all means send it, and I promise it will not sit around unloved! 14. Socks! Slippers! Do you love them or not really wear them? If you love them, do you also love Sock Dreams? YES!YES!YES! My feet are always cold! I love sock dreams socks, but have to be a little fussy about the kind I get. I have one leg that can swell up, so I try to only wear socks that are ankle length or a little higher, definitely below mid-calf. I really like soft fuzzy socks. And slippers will get much love at house of Lucyboo! I wear a woman’s 9/10 and I kind of have Fred Flinstone feet, that are wide at the toes and narrow at the heel. 15. Would you wear something like this if your Fox were to knit you one? If so, what color? I would jump up and down and squee till my neighbors came to find out what the commotion was all about! I would love it! Pretty much any color would be good. If it helps in your planning, I have two winter jackets that I wear for the most part. One is chocolate brown and the other is red and black. 16. New question: talk to me of coffee. Whole bean? Ground? Flavored, not flavored? Decaf, whole caff? Favorite roasters? Drip, french press, keurig? BRING ON THE TEA? PLEASE TO BE SENDING ALL OF YOUR COFFEE AND TEA TO SOME OTHER BUNNY! I do like hot chocolate and hot cider. 17. Who else here loves or would like to try Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics? If so, what would you like? I had never heard of it before, but some of it looks interesting. However, to be honest, I don’t think I would know where to start. I kind of have the dumb when it comes to make up. I am really trying to find something that looks like Archtype’s Northern Lights Shadow. If someone could find that for me, I would love them forever, and bake them cookies until they begged for mercy! 18. Have you tried anything from Cocoa Pink and if so, what products and scents do you like or would like to try? I LOVE Cocoa Pink!!! Anything that was picked out for me from there would be loved! I use Princess Poo, Shine Sweetie, SoulMate, Anti-frizz, Glisade, and Ends with Benefits. I also love their Soft Bubbles Sugar Scrub and I really like the linen sprays for trying new fragrances. Right now I’m obsessed with the Blood Orange Cotton Candy, and I need to get it in the 30ml perfume spray soon. The only scents that don’t work on me here are similar to BPAL, in that if they have my evil arch-nemesis MINT, or the Holy-crap-get-it-off-me-now CINNAMON, then I probably won’t use them. 19. Anybody into nail polish? Any color or formula preferences? Sorry, polish here would be wasted. I still haven’t out-grown chewing my nails. 20. 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!) Hmmm… Possibly back ups of Sprinkle Cake and Halloween Las Vegas that just arrived today, and both have me swooning! TKO? Dorian? Bon Vivant? Those are ones that I go through at an alarmingly fast rate. Of course I keep meaning to get bottles of Black Forest, Crib Girls, and Haloes and Tattered Lace (I know those aren’t from the lab, but I keep putting off getting them). 21. Is there any particular holiday DVD that you don't have that you would like to own? I actually think that I have all of the ones that I love. 22. How do you feel about superheros? Are you a Marvel or DC fan? Do you have a favorite hero? No comics for me. 23. Would my bunny like anything in particular from Lush? I do have access to an actual Lush store, and also wouldn't mind ordering retro items online. I’m slightly embarrassed to have to admit this, but I’m a Lush virgin. Another place that intimidates me, and I wouldn’t know where to start! 24. Would you like a Paintbox from Paintbox Soapworks? If so, which scents? Let me tell you a little secret: I have a little fantasy that I quit my job, run away to Pennsylvania, and Tarty lets me be her assistant! I LOVE her things! I’m addicted to the scrubs and slip, with my favorite being The Queen is Dead. I’m afraid to have to admit this, but I have yet to try her thicker lotions, and I really want to. My only excuse is that I made my last gargantuan order, and she put them up like a week later. I did try one of the proto versions and it was lovely! **and in case anyone is interested, I think her holiday LEs are going up in the next day or so. I’ll be sure to add them to my favorites on my Etsy wish list. 25. NEW QUESTION! - 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 two furbabies, and I think most people who hang out in the SW or GUSP threads have heard about my critters. Hannah the 24lb cat and Madame Cee Cee La Roux, the 4 pound dog. Hannah enjoys most kitty toys and treats and has no restrictions. And of course her newest love, courtesy of my SW, KittyDemonCrack. Cee Cee because of her age (12) and her previous life in a puppy mill she never learned how to play. Also because of her previous life she doesn’t have any teeth, so while she would love a giant bone, she will either try to A. swallow it whole, or B. carry it around and guard it from Hannah, until I have had enough and throw the thing away. So, any treats for her need to be soft. Incidentally, if you would like to come over and rub her belly, that would be fine with her, too. 26. How do you feel about honey/beeswax? Would you like any? I have a good local supplier of it. 27. NEW QUESTION: Are you a Trader Joe's fan, who either doesn't have a store nearby or just loves their stuff and has a wishlist? LOVE Trader Joe’s. Unfortunately it is a several hour drive to the nearest one. I love their crystallized ginger, jojos, and I really miss their fresh mozzarella (but that probably wouldn’t be a good thing to ship!) 28. The Paintbox Soapworks Yules are up, or at least round one is (updates coming throughout the week). Interested in anything? Yuletide Mariner and Poinsettia in both slip and sorbetto! Also the Victorious Sun Hand and Body Cream. 29. If I were to place ONE LAST Weenie order, (uh, which I will) what would you want me to include for you? (presuming that is that the order can get here in time, bites nails) Halloween Las Vegas and Sprinkle Cake. I’m in love with both of them. 30. Will you be away for any part of the round? Nope! You will be stuck with me the whole round! 31. Anyone else with an Etsy store and a member of Tradeaholics (or you could join) and interested in bartering for gifts for their bunny? Everything in my shop is up for trade. No store for me. 32. What type of books do you like? Dying to read anything? I like popular fiction/mystery stuff. My favorite author is Janet Evanovich, and I love the Stephanie Plum novels, but I haven’t read any of the new series with Diesel, and I would like to. 33. 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 think I touched on music in the original questionnaire, I like fun, upbeat stuff, or classics, but no traditional hymns, please. 34. 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.) I’ve never tried any, but it doesn’t sound like something that I need to try, either. 35. 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?) No thanks. 36. 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 do not like spicy! The only exception to that is ginger, which I eat like potato chips! 37. If your fox/bunny were to gift you with a gift card from anywhere, as in any store food-wise, music wise etc., what gift card would you like? Villainess, Soapbox, Sock Dreams, Amazon, Bathed & Infused. 38. 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 kind of get squicked out by raisins hidden in things. They remind me of ticks. Favorite candy is probably Angel Food. Also turtles, caramels, toffee, if it’s candy, I’ll probably like it. 39. Does anything from Fusion Sweets interest you? All the things! I love them!!! My favorites are the caramels, either sea salt or lavendar. 40. Interested in anything from the Elements and Artifacts Yule update? Ummm…. I hate to admit this, but I kind of went a little nuts at the update, and bought all the things. I figured it out, and what I spent on E&A this update is enough to heat my Northern Wisconsin home for a month and a half this winter. I told Alicia that I suffered from the terrible debilitating disease of S.O.S. (Shiny Object Syndrome), and she said I was just a magpie! (which may also be true. Either way, there are LOTS of Elements and Artifacts items in my Etsy wishlist, along with lots of other jewelry and other assorted sparkly things. 41. What was the best holiday present you ever got? A scrapbook kit specially geared toward family history and recipes. Also, a painting that my mom had done for me of my dog. 42. Bunny, what scent are you desperately wanting to be resurrected this year with the Anniversary update? Skadi or Stranger in Camp 43. Groupon for Moxie Nouveau! Dear Bunneh, is this something that would interest you? I’ve never tried any of her things, but they look interesting, and I’m easily enabled. 44. Bun-bun, what's your favourite colour? Dark teal blue, pink, winter white. 45. Your favourite gemstone? I like lots of things (as you can tell from my answer to the Elements and Artifacts question). I like pearls, especially grey or peacock ones, pink tourmaline, sapphire, garnets. 46. Your favourite animal (real or imaginary)? I suppose I had better say this one: 47. And do you have any intense phobias? Snakes!!!! Ewww!!! Can’t watch them on tv, can’t walk past the snake house at the zoo (they might escape!), cannot go into the boathouse at my Dad’s cabin, I HATE SNAKES!!!! 48. Are you Nano-ing this month, bunny? If so, how would you feel about merch/donations to the cause? Not this year. 49. Do you like/need boxes for perfume/knicknacks? I need a new bottle box as the bottom came out of my chest of smellies, but I want one that can hold my 300+ collection of BPAL, and I can’t find one I like/afford. 50. Coffee or tea? With caffine or without? Flavors (if so, what?) or no? Whole bean/ground/loose leaf/bags? Tea and coffee should best be sent to people who are not me. 51. Do you have a strong preference for any sort of bath and body product brands (i.e. etailer/etsy type cos, department store/specialty brands like Lush) or are you cool with anything that doesn't smell like Bunnybane? I’m addicted to Paintbox’s Sorbettos! I really like scrubby scrubs, and am always up for trying new ones. The other thing that I go through a metric-butt ton of during the winter is lotion. Specifically really thick, heavy lotions or body butters. Right now I’m really liking Bathed and Infused and Isle of Eden for those. 52. A question: reveal, yes or no? I hope she will, but if not I shall just sing her praises from afar (and since I’m singing, you’ll be happy that you are a far!) 53. Any favorite cuddly characters? BEARS! I love bears! 54. Charity gifts? Either fair-trade type stuff, or virtual type gifts, like vaccinations or school supplies being bought on your behalf, or something along those lines? Anything that benefits animals would be a winner! 55. Bunny, are you interested in tarts from Two Timing Tart? What scents, if any, are you interested in? I’ve never tried them, but again, I’m easy to enable! Sooo. Yules. Those just happened. What are you interested in, Bunny? Do you like coin purses? I have one that I use. Do you prefer dark or milk chocolate? What? Where is the white love??? Please be sending me your white chocolate! Or milk. There is an ugly rumor that dark chocolate could be good for you, so I try to stay far away from that! What are your opinions on traditional holiday cookie flavorings? I'm thinking anise and cardamom in particular. Anise, I do not like! Other than that, bring it on! Do you like artisan oils and vinegars? I do, oils more than vinegars. If you have a recipe that you use a specific oil or vinegar in, I’d love that, too. Bunny, could you use a 2012 calendar, and, if so, do you like big monthly ones or the page-a-day type? I have a day planner that I buy refills for each year. Speaking about candles, how much do you look forward to the BPTP candles that will be launched on Etsy? I don't know if there will be other scents than the Samhain and Pumpkin Cookie one, but is there a specific one you are longing for? I’m looking forward to the Yule candles that were out at will call. All of them sound yummy! Does anyone have issues with gently used things like books, etc.? I love used books. And a plug for my favorite used book seller, Better World Books. Are you a big ol' nerd for any particular subject? Science, math, linguistics, etc? Or particular authors/fandoms? Nothing that I can think of right off hand. Bunnies, how do you feel about lemon-flavored items, like lemon marmalade, lemon curd, lemon pound cake, or lemon cookies? Mmmm LEMON! Love it! fingerless mittens or full mitts? Full mitts! I hate having cold fingers. 65.Ok, random question that came to me in the shower (sorry ) I have a ton of soaps and not one soap dish. Would anyone else be interested in a soap dish or something like that? I could use another soap dish that drains well. 66.ALSO. I have a question. If your fox were to knit something for you, would it be a lacy shawl or a pair of socks? Inquiring foxes want to know! I’d love socks, but I have the goofy leg that I have told you about, so it would probably be best to say no. I would love a shawl! Or anything that you hand made. 67.Are you a Harry Potter fan? If so, which house do you identify with, and why? Would you want knitted things/replicas/accessories in your house colours? I enjoyed the movies, but wouldn’t consider myself enough of a fan that I’d need anything. 68.Are there any Yules from *PAST* years that you're interested in trying? Including past winter inquisitions? Skadi 69. (oh la la)Let's talk about fruit! Do you like dried fruit or hate it? Like some but not others? Ginger!!!! Holy Jesus, do I love crystallized ginger!!! It’s like crack for me!!! 70.How do you feel about cherries? Prefer the sweet or tart versions? Dried? Jam? Salsa? Hot sauce? BBQ sauce? I like cherries, and would enjoy any version that you would like to send. 71.Bunnies! What is your general philosophy about patterns for accessories such as socks, scarves, and tights? Do you like solids? Stripes? Polka dots? Weird patterns like harlequin-type stuff? Any of the above? Any of the above! I’m not really much of a tights person though… (I’ve never really found any that fit comfortably). 72.So, apparently Geek Chic Cosmetics will be closing down next week to prep for a huge sale and a new line - the words "bigger on the inside" have been used for the new line. Bunny, are you interested in anything from Geek Chic Cosmetics? I have never tried anything from them, but again, feel free to enable me! 73.Sooo. Yules. Those just happened. What are you interested in, Bunny? Sooooo many Yules…. My head is spinning! I’ve ordered a couple, but I will update my wishlist within the next couple of days. 74.Chiles? No thank you. 74.I had a question for everyone else though! A friend and I were recently talking about those Giant Microbe plushies, if you were my bunneh, would you like one? Which would you like? I think those are adorable! I like the common cold, herpes, white blood cell really any of them! 75.Do you need any baking supplies? Are you interested in winter/holiday specific baking supplies? Always!

    More questions answered

    I'm sure you're getting sick of reading about me witch, but I'm at work and bored... Do you need any winter wear, witchee? It’s already gotten to feel like winter here in my part of the world! I’ve noticed that I really need some new slippers and new gloves/mittens. In both cases I’m much more interested in how warm they are than how cute they are, if they are both, than that’s an awesome plus. I've read something about a Event Exclusive called Pumpkin Hard Candy (if someone knows the details, shout it out because I am still searching). Are you interested in this scent? How desperate are you for it? I tend to do very well with Pumpkin scents so I would love to try it, but nothing I’m dying to have, either. Going back to the question about winter wear, are there any colors you would prefer not to have? I have two winter coats that I wear most of the time. My casual one is red and black, and my dressier one is brown. Any colors that go with either of those is fine, The only color that I can think of right off hand that I would hate is a mustard yellow. Do you like scary books? What's the best/scariest thing you've ever read? NOPE! Real life is scary enough. I like to read to escape and be happy. So I was at Uwajimaya the other day and saw Earl Grey Tea Chocolate and Cinnamon Chocolate. If you were my Witchee, would you be interested in trying something like that? Maybe. I once had a witch who sent me bacon chocolate, and that was surprisingly good. I like chocolate, but I’m not dying to try fancy or strange chocolates, either.

Witches, did you lament NOT getting one of the condom case/imp cases that got released with the courtesan series??? I recently saw candy corn in non-candy corn flavors like CHOCOLATE and CARAMEL APPLE. It's not a fancy brand, I just saw it in the drugstore, but who here would like something like that?

I can’t watch them on tv, and I hyperventilate when I walk by the building that they are housed in at a zoo. what level of contact were you hoping for? Anything is ok. I would be scared if my witch was too Ninja. I got abandoned in my first swap I was ever in, and it felt horrible to be left out of the fun. I’m a pretty high contact witch, but I’m also slightly neurotic. Your favorite restaurant or type of food to eat out. Would you use a restaurant.com voucher? Groupon? I swear I just answered this. Are there any local museums/attractions you keep never getting around to going to? As mentioned I live in the boonies. I’ve been to all the local museums, the Fishing Hall of Fame and the Lumberjack hall of fame, and even the Woodcarvers Hall of fame. I think I’ve wrung all the culture out of Northern Wisconsin that there is to have! Is there any kind of international candy you love or would like to try? That evil, evil Girasol introduced me to TimTams, which are pretty much my idea of heaven covered in chocolate. Especially the Black Forest ones.

I also accidentally at an Asian Lady Beetle on one of those trips. Is there anything you would want from NYCC, something you'd like your witch to ask me to pick up? Can’t think of anything. The best thing I ever ate...: ALL THE THINGS! Lol! My Grandma’s Brownies that Grandpa would sneak to me straight from the freezer. My mom’s gravy. Captain Crunch Chicken, Crab Au Gratin with White Truffles. Do you like liquorice? If so, hard or soft? Sweet or salt? Normally salted or so salt it pulls your face into a fishy shape? And which shapes do you like? Not a huge fan. I’ll eat it if offered, but nothing I would ever choose for myself. Never had salted. Mac using witchees, what computers do you use? What peripherals/accessories do you have and what would you LIKE to have? What do you use your computer for? No Mac here. Do you like listening to audiobooks? Would you like to receive one, and if you would, what sort of audiobook would you like--or is there a particular audiobook you've been meaning to get? I love audiobooks!

Is anybody else into film photography? Interested in receiving film, supplies, etc from Lomography? No thank you. Are you musically inclined? Do you play an instrument or sing? If so, what? I’ve played the piano for the last 25 years or so, and I enjoy singing, but, nobody enjoys hearing me.

    Questions through 9/23/11

    Is there anything you'd like from the Mütter Museum Store? I liked my decant of U, but have never gotten a bottle, so that would be much appreciated. Otherwise I like the string keychains. I just noticed that Cocoa Pink has 5 ml Perfume Atomizers. Yay or nay? Scents you would like? Scents you would NOT like? I love Cocoa Pink! I’m not a huge fan of the 5 ml Atomizers, because I use them up in a day. I really like the linen sprays right now. They work great as body sprays and in hair, too. I would love any of the scents you picked, with the exception of the ones that contain any kind of milk (rice, coconut, it all turns nasty sour). I’ve also just gotten both of the Halloween sets so I wouldn’t need those. what's your favorite kind of pizza? Thin crust, very little sauce extra cheese Canadian bacon. who are your style/fashion icons? post pics if you want! I have no style. At home I’m almost always in sweats and work I wear dress pants and a sweater. My style icon is probably Betty White. Are there any food items you're craving/aren't able to find around your area? Can’t think of any. 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? Can’t think of anything that I need a cover for. 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? No, I think it’s a really neat idea, but I don’t do anything with fabric. Colors! What are your favorite colors and what colors do you not like? Pictures and links, people! Cotton candy pink, the dark teal blue on a mallard duck’s head, iridescent bronzy copper. What is your favorite word? Douchecanoe, Twatwaffle, Quagmire What are the feelings on arm warmers? Color, style, texture, length? They would get no love from me. I’m always cold, so I wear sweater or sweatshirts with long sleeves 90% of the time. They would be impractical in the same way that fingerless gloves would be. Do you like tarts? tealights? jar candles? votives? I LOVE tarts!! And jar candles! I don’t have much use for votives and I have a stash of 10 of those 100 tealights in a bag (I found a really good sale) so I think I’m set there. What's your favorite flavor? Sour, sweet, bitter, salty? I like sour (especially citrus), and sweet and salty, but please no bitter. I adore salty sweet together like sea salt caramels!! So, are there any online gaming witchees who covet purchasable in-game items or other gamer-y stuff? (yup, geek question) No thanks, not a gamer. Anyone doing anything cool for Mabon (or the start of fall, if you aren't pagan? I’m stuck working with my twatwaffle douchecanoe of a coworker all weekend. I’m thinking about ways to “accidentally” set her on fire. What is your favorite coffee blend at Starbucks? If you don't have one, what is your favorite roast of coffee? Ick! No coffee!!! I’ve tried all sorts of incarnations of it, and they all taste terrible! If I go to Starbucks I get a Caramel Apple. Cthulhu: yay or nay? Nay Is there something that you wish you could do, but you keep putting it off? Set coworker on fire. Oh, sorry, I seem to have a one track mind tonight, can you tell? I want to get my office organized and change the seasonal decorations in my house. I need to order LP so I have heat for the winter, but I keep hoping that it will go down in price. I need to get out all my winter clothes and put away the summer ones. I need to get an oil change in the car, and rotate the tires. I need to make an appointment for Cee to go to the groomers. I need to have an uncomfortable conversation with the SO. I want to learn how to crochet better and I’d like to learn how to make jewelry and work with beads. Put your current mp3player (I am the anti-apple, so no ipod ), winamp playlist, what have you, on shuffle, list the first 10 songs: I don’t have anything like an ipod, and I’ve mentioned my listening preferences earlier, if you’d like a more detailed list of songs and artists just poke me and I’ll put some serious thought into it. 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 should. I want to, but I’ve been spending A LOT of money on other smellies and such lately so I’m putting it off for at least a month. And, I want all the things! Do you have any interest in rocks? Not like, polished colorful stones.. but like... rocks. With geologic significance! Yes! I have a couple of big jars that I have rocks in. 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? Either, I wouldn’t want short and fat or a skinny one, because I’m not sure how I’d wear one like that. I love all sorts of scarves and wear them at work as well as outside to keep warm. I would not like a poncho. My mother dressed me in one in the mid ‘70’s and I’m still slightly scared from the experience. 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. I have spammed you enough with pictures of my fur babies. I do have more if you really want to see them. Do you like/own/wear/want fairy wings or something of the like? No. Sorry, I kind of think it’s cute and all, but I live in a small town where people would point and think I was the Tooth Fairy’s angry aunt. How do you feel about terrariums? I don’t have any, but I think they are very cool! I would need very detailed instructions on how to care for it because I really do have a black thumb. What's your favorite horror movie? I do not like horror movies. I like suspense movies like Silence of the Lambs and Sevens. Nothing gory or paranormal or I won’t sleep for a long time! 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. Tylenol PM, Princess Poo, Shine Sweetie and Soulmate from Cocoa Pink, Sorbetto and Slip from Paintbox Soapworks, Naturallogic (on etsy) blemish eraser, Fruit enzyme cleansing gel, and organic balancing facial toner. Lip balm in lots of fun flavors (no coffee or chocolate though), hair scrunchies or clips, diet mt. dew, Australian crystallized ginger, string cheese, fuzzy ankle socks, hot chocolate mix. Jane Austen .. Yay or Nay? Nay. 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? I do like them, unfortunately my mood lately has run to the snarky and sarcastic. My favorite is probably, “Some people are like slinkys; they aren’t really good for anything but it makes you smile when you push them down the stairs.” Do you like period or period-styled paraphernalia? Stuff like postcards, notecards, jewelry, office supplies, what-have-you? Yes, I do like vintage looking notepads and stuff like that. 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? Not my cup of tea. If you could choose a Smack, what would it have in it? I’ve never tried a Smack, I’ve wanted to, but I’m slightly intimidated. Bluegrass, Bonfire, Suede and ??? I would trust you to pick. if you could have a salon scent made, based on any artwork(s) what would it be? I’m having a lot of trouble with this one. I like all sorts of different art, but I suck at combining notes together. The scent of Falling Leaf Moon reminds me so much of the picture that I have in my dining room (I posted that in thread I think), and I love both the scent and the picture. 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.? I would never consider myself scientifically curious, but some of the things on that list sound interesting. I would love to try making soap and scrubs and things like that. And the idea of dying fabric sounds super cool, but what would I do with it after I had dyed it? What's 'your' song/your theme song? Billy Joel, You May be Right What would be your superpower? Teleportation. I hate the traveling part of going somewhere; and I don’t mean big vacations, just going to the grocery store 10 miles away makes me cranky. Witchee, would you like a gently used BPAL tshirt? Sure, I don’t mind the gently used, but I’ve got the big bewbies to deal with. 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! Sure, I’d love some. No raisins! No carob covered anything. Love cashews Do you like charm bracelets? If you had a bracelet, what sort of charms would you want on it? Favorite hobbies, symbols, whatever? I’ve got one that my mom started for me already. 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 could always use more brushes. Especially eye brushes. Do you like Legos? Especially mini-fig key chains, Lego block keychains, small Lego sets, etc? No thanks. 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. I’m not good at this either. Lemon Scented Sticky Bat to replace the one I washed after wearing it one time, and TKO Are there any characters that you love or identify with? I love Red Green! (I may have a slight crush on him) 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?

    Catch up as of 9/19/11

    What strange misc. items would you love to receive that you just haven't gotten for yourself?: I'm not sure. I know there are lots of little things, but I just can't think of anything off the top of my head. I'll try to start jotting them down when I think of them. 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? I don’t wear polish 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? I LOVE lip balm, and I can always use more! I like trying new places and flavors and I like the twist up tubes the best, although tubes with wands are ok, too. Just don’t get me the kind that I have to stick my fingers in to apply. Ick! 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) No thanks, I don’t really have a use for them. -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) I’m not into painting. -How do you feel about getting art supplies in general? (copic markers, watercolor, brushes, paint, sketchbooks etc.) I can’t think of anything that I really need or want right now. -How do you feel about Threadless tshirts? I don’t wear t-shirts a lot, and I have more than enough. 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? Sparkly pink, grey and taupe eye shadows, candy, a book. Darling Witchee, would you enjoy farmer's market pickled veggies (green beans, garlic, asparagus, etc) or fresh canned peaches or something of that nature? No thank you, I do a lot of that sort of thing myself. Do you prefer color or white photographs? Nature or abstract? I like color and BW, depending on what suits the photo best. I like nature photos a lot! would you be interested in something like this? https://lostcrates.com/how-it-works Sure Amigurumi, yes or no? Maybe… Some are really cute. 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 really don’t need anymore tshirts right now. How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc.... Like pumpkin scented a lot, especially if it isn’t overwhelmed by cinnamon. Has anyone else heard of or does anyone else love Glamourkin? Not really my style/ 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. TIM TAMS!!!!! The Black Forest Tim Tams especially! That was the most wonderful/horrible thing anyone ever sent me! Wonderful because holy hell are they delicious, horrible because they make me consider moving to Australia a rational solution to obtain more! Also, Cadbury chocolate is yummy. 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). SOCK PREFERENCES? Love socks. I’m a bit of a sock whore, but I’m a picky whore. I have one calf that is larger than the other, and makes any socks that go much over my ankles uncomfortable. My favorites are the really soft fuzzy ankle socks. Would you like/wear a pair of these? http://www.ravelry.c...rary/yoga-socks If so, what color? No, My poor toes would freeze. Is there anyone here who likes toe socks? You know, those socks with a place for each toe? No, I’m with the can’t stand anything between the toes club. Are you looking for a certain kind of DVDs to spruce up your collection right now? I’m really looking at the Bridesmaid Unrated movie that is coming out today. Does anyone like postcards? Is anyone willing to be a Nacho witch for postcards? I would be thrilled beyond words to get post cards to cover my fridge with! I’d be happy to send post cards off to the world, too. Anyone going to see any good concerts this fall? No. Do you like Star Trek? Original TV series, films, spinoff series, etc? Favorite characters? Not my thing. Witchee, would you like a framed photograph and of what? Most definitely! I love to hang things on my walls! I like nature and animal scenes the best, either B&W or color is good. My favorite photos that I have are of the Northern Lights. 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? I definitely cook at home, and I’m a cookbook junkie. I’d like to get a few more candy cookbooks, as that is the section that is lacking in my library. I can always use potholders and dishtowels. Right now I’m also in need of a new candy thermometer. New question: How do you feel about maple syrup? Hehe. That’s my question! Please don’t send me maple syrup. I haz way more than enough. Dad cooks it every spring. This year was a bad year, and he complained that he only got 58 gallons… I’m not sure who he’s planning on having over for pancakes… 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) I like the idea, but I’m not sure what would connect for me. Do you like Star Wars? Original Trilogy? Prequels? Spin-offs? Favorite characters? I saw them, and enjoyed them, but don’t need to see them again. And here is a somewhat embarrassing confession from my childhood: I saw the original Star Wars movies at age 8 or 9, and my parents got me a Star Wars bedding ensemble, I had the biggest crush on Hans Solo, and would kiss his pillow every night. 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)- Yumm! Beef jerky! Any jerky except goose. The goose jerky was good, but my stomach didn’t like it. I like the thicker softer variety. 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. Racy is fine, and I don’t need a warning. Doctor Who? Yay or nay? (please don't make me cry by saying nay) Sorry… Nay. Never watched it. Although with all the fans around here I think I should check it out. I have a couple spare Doctor Who stickers. If my witchee is a fan, would they like a couple Doctor Who stickers in their package? Again, they would probably be wasted on me. Anyone love Buffy/Angel? No thanks. How would you feel about gummies? Like, gummy bears? Gummy werewolves? Gummy vampires? Gummies are good, especially the sour ones. How would you feel about a totally original Gela-skin for your laptop/iPod/phone? Stickers? Decals? No thanks Since this is a Halloween round, what's your Creepy threshold? 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 definitely in the cartoon crowd. I don’t like creepy. Are your ears pierced, Witchee? Do you have any other piercings? Would you like to receive any items of jewelry for these piercings? Only pierced ears, and only once in each. Earrings are always welcome How do you all feel about Whoopie Pies? I feel that there are other people who like them much more than I. interested in anything from Lush? I have never tried anything from Lush. I’ve looked at their website, and a lot of it looks neat, but I wouldn’t know where to start. The only thing that I know that I don’t want is any of their bar soap. Other than that, if my witch has a favorite, or something that she thinks I would like, than I would love to try it. Do you blog? Would you like a header for your blog, a layout, etc? I don’t. I subject the SO to pages long emails, and would hate to have to force them on anyone else. Would you be interested in a handmade bookmark? Absolutely! I usually have 3 or 4 books going, and can never find a book mark when I want one. do you like chex puppy chow or muddie buddies (ingredients: semi-sweet chocolate chips, PB, vanilla extract, powdered sugar, chex cereal)? would you want to get some from your witch / nacho witch? Sure! Both are yummy as is plain old Chex mix. 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. No Groupons in the middle of nowhere. do you like real sugar skulls? Things with sugar skull designs? I like the idea of them, but I’m not sure what I’d do with one. As for the designs, again, I like them, but if it were on clothing or jewelry I wouldn’t get much use out of it. Who here adores meringue? I’m ok with it, but it’s not something that I lust after.

I play piano, and have since I was 4. Does anyone garden? And if you do, what do you grow? If not, would a starter garden kit be something you'd be interested in? I don’t have a garden, and I kind of have a black thumb. I like the idea of a starter garden but I wonder if I wouldn’t kill it, or if it could take the Northern Wisconsin weather. Do you decorate for Halloween? Is your decorating taste elegant, kitschy and fun, or scary? I do, to a degree. Fun and kitschy would probably best describe it. But NO SNAKES or spiders. Seriously. Snakes freak me the hell out! I would have to have the SO remove a toy snake from any package. Witchee, do you have any symbols or totems that have special meaning for you? Not really Is anyone fond of programs like Adopt a Tree/Highway/Library/Manatee/Acre of Rainforest/etc?: I do like those. Especially the Wolf and Polar Bear ones.

I don’t have any restrictions on the twitter account, so follow me at will. Do you have wishlists for non-BPAL e-tailers? And if so, could you provide a link or a list? I used to, and I’ll work on updating it and getting a link posted in my blog. Witchee, do you use a PC or a Mac? PC What is your favorite animal?

But, if you see something that you think is me, than I’m sure I could find a spot for it! What traditions (family, holiday, or otherwise) are important to you? Christmas, birthdays, Do you like going to the movies? Not in a theater. I do like watching movies at home. What are your favorite restaurants? Locally a small Italian place called Bona Casa, The Tower House and Timber Ridge Steak House. I’m in a very small area where we don’t have chain restraunts. Do you play any video games? No Do you like any anime? No Do you have an E-reader/iPad/something similar that you need a cover/case for? I have all the covers that I need at the moment, however if I ever get the nook that I’m lusting after, than that would need a case. how much do you like jewelry? like, if you were to get a shit ton of it during the round, how excited would you be? I love jewelry! I would be a very happy witchee! How would you like to receive some of your Witch's favorite recipes, tailored to your likes/dietary restrictions? And specific wants? I love recipies! Do you need any boxes to store your smellies in? What would you store in said hypothetical box--imps, bottles, supplies, all of the above? I most definitely need additional bottle storage! I have a treasure chest that I keep all my bottles in, but they are double and triple stacked in there and I can never find what I want. Muppets: yea or nay? Nay Do you have an affinity for Calvin and Hobbes, Peanuts, The Far Side, and other comic strips? If so, which is your favorite? When I read it, Far Side makes me chuckle Favorite Mythological Creature?: A man that likes to cook, clean and give back rubs. Do you like hair things barrettes, headbands, flowers I can always use more hair thingies. I have longish hair that I always have up or back or somehow confined. I’m not really a big flower on the head kind of a girl, though. Expanding on the hair question - does anyone like those flower clips for the hair that are big right now?? See above answer. What #1 actor, director, author and/or musician are you obsessed with? None that I can think of right off the top of my head are you interested in anything from the Villainness Bad Apples update? I’d love samples of any of the soaps, but I don’t know that I’d want whole bars, the burns on the other hand look amazing and I’m lusting after all of them!!! If you have a pet, would he/she/they like to receive a treat or a toy as a gift? Does your pet have any dietary restrictions or other preferences w.r.t. said treat? Hannah the cat loves little things that she can pounce on, and any treats or catnip would be much loved by her. She isn’t picky in the least! Cee Cee the dog also isn’t picky, and to put it quite frankly, is a bit of a food whore, however, she doesn’t have any teeth, so all food must be soft. She does wear little coats, boots and sweaters in the winter, otherwise she shivers, and I try to get her seasonally appropriate collars. What are your top three "I want to try them but I think I'll never get to try them" (or, "I've tried them and I want moar moar moar, but I don't think I'll ever get any") scents/bath oils/sprays? Snow Glass Apples Geek Goth Antique Lace Is there a particular artist and piece that you would like a print of? If so, what is your max size that you could spare on your walls? If you are in to beauty and makeup related stuff, what kind of stuff do you like? What is your skintone and hair color? Are there any beauty products you've wanted to try but just never purchase? I have some things favorited in my etsy wishlist. I love the Naturallogics things I’ve tried. I’d love to try some of the Villainess muds and slick. I like blue/pink colors in make up. I am very, very pale with light brownish/red hair. This is a very specific thing I’m looking for: Archtype cosmetics has a mineral eyeshadow in a shade called Northern Lights, that is pretty much my holy grail of beauty products right now. I received a sample of it, and I must find more! Otherwise I like pinks, blues and purples, and the more sparkles the better! Do you like coffee or tea? Would you be interested in trying some different types? No, ick! Hot chocolate and hot cider are yummy, though. Are there any CDs/Albums you've been wanting but haven't bought yet? What format do you prefer? (i.e. mp3, actual cd, record, etc) I don’t buy many cds, but I love getting mixed cds. I can listen to cds and mp3s Are you going away for any part of this round? Nope, sorry Dear Witch! You are stuck with me all round! Would you like to receive a mix-CD from your Witch? I would love it! If your witch were going somewhere on a vacation during the round, would you want a little souvenir? I would love to know that you thought of me while on vacation, but wouldn’t want you to feel obligated to anything. Do you enjoy any outdoor activities? Do you have a favorite form of "exercise"? Yes. Swimming Any witchee's with a ravelry account have any favourited patterns that cost money that would be a welcome gift? Not on ravelry Do you work/study at a desk and enjoy interesting or cute office supplies? Always! Witchee, are you a fan of musicals? If so, which ones? Not so much Can you sum yourself (whether it be personality, life's goals, ethics, whatever) in 10 words or less? No. I don’t think I could even try. I’m much more complex than that. How about little bottles of booze? Ya wanna? What kind? I’m not a big drinker, but if it’s something out of the ordinary and you think I would like it, then bring it on! 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.) Both are yummy, with fudge having a slight advantage over brownies. Also, what about mochi? Love it, hate it, baffled by it? I had to look it up to find out what it was. I don’t think it would be anything that I must try. Anything from the update ya'll are liking? BPTP UPDATE ALL THE THINGS!!! Seriously. I want almost everything! Especially the hair glosses and atmo sprays. Does anyone like kimchi? No! I’m not a big fan of fermented anything. I can’t imagine that it would do anything pleasant to a vegetable. Would you be interested in a sample box(from somewhere like Birchbox or loosebutton)? Sure. I’ve looked at them from time to time and they look like it would be fun. I’m a sucker for the mystery boxes and surprise boxes. You have to place a Lab and Trading Post order. Right fuckin' now. No spending limits. What do you buy? All of the atmo sprays! 100 bottles of Snake Oil and TKO so I never run out. Paintbox Soapworks - anything you're interested in, in general or from the latest update? I LOVE Paintbox Soaps! I love them so much that when Tarty came out with the last update I ordered all of them. I use her Sorbetto every single day and have a bottle of slip in my purse at all times. Anything from her shop would be much loved and appreciated, but possibly not needed right at the moment. Do you guys have any sports that you follow obsessively? How about favorite teams and/or athletes I follow NFL (GB Packers) and College Football (WI Badgers) and NASCAR pretty closely, but I don’t need anything themed. How do you feel about notebooks/journals/stationery? Anything you need or particularly like? I always love them, and buy them, and then get them home and realize I have no use for them at all. Does confetti/glitter make you angry or fill you with glee? I love it! Unless it is in a card or package and results in my having to get the vacuum out. I love glitter in make up! Fabulous witches and witchees, perhaps you all could note of you've received MeiLin's goodies? Or if you want? I have not. I keep meaning to get her books, and then other things grab my attention. I suffer from SOS (Shiny Object Syndrome). How do you feel about stuffed animals/plushies/general soft, cuddly things? If you like them, what kind of animals would you be interested in? I love stuffed animals. I collect bears, either ones that are more natural looking or dressed up in cute clothes. how interested would you be on somewhat personalized bottle cap labels? Like these that I did? I could definitely put those to use. How would you feel about kitchen towels and other similar household objects, if they are pretty or a souvenir? I can always use more kitchen accessories, towels, pot holders and the like. How did you dress up for your last party or compulsory-formal-dress occasion? Discounting several weddings in which I was an attendant, and the bride forced us to dress in hideous satin creations with large bows and puffy skirts, I don’t believe I have attended a formal dress occasion since 1988 when I went to HS prom, and I am hoping to keep it that way. Normal party or dress up for me would be a black skirt and a nice blouse or sweater. Do you enjoy puzzles/riddles? (Cryptograms, Sudoku, Crossword, Jigsaw, etc) No. When I see them, it’s like a compulsion and I must work them, but they make me a little bit crazy. Witchee, would you be interested in having a special tea cup/coffee mug/glass to drink out of? I don’t drink coffee or tea, but I have been thinking that I need to get an insulated mug for work for hot chocolate. Would you like to receive e-books? And if so, in what format? Sure. Kindle If you have kids, would you be interested in getting things for them? And if so, what are they interested and what sizes are the wearing now? Only have the 4 legged kids at my house. Would you be interested in a felted handbag? Do any of these styles appeal to you? http://tinyurl.com/3o2epzl (there's at least one guy-friendly style, too!) Absolutely! Are there are patterns, motifs, etc that you especially like? I have quite a few examples of styles that I like on my Etsy favorites list. If you're a tea drinker, is there any specific tea you would like to receive, not just the kind/flavor but also the type/packing--i.e., tea bags, loose tea, compressed, etc? Sorry, but I am not a tea drinker I am fond of the thrift. Do you mind lightly used goods? Please be specific! For instance, I'm a little squicked by used clothing, but I don't mind any other used goods (i.e. books, glassware, games, DVDs, whatever.) I love thrift, but please no used shoes or undies. Do you have an Etsy shop? Do you know of any Etsy shops that are Switch Witch friendly? I’m just a buyer on Etsy, not a seller. Would a gift or a postcard from Disneyland make you squee with delight or puke into your mail box? I would love it, and keep it on my fridge forever and ever! what are your favorite types of Halloween candy? Caramel apple candy corn and marshmallow pumpkins. Do you prefer soap or shower gel? Please give examples of your favorite scents or brands. I like scrubby soaps like Paintbox Soapwork’s Sorbetto. I like highly scented and the scrubbier the better. How do you like your chocolate? For example with nuts, mint, peanut butter, caramel? YES! Beads! Do you use them? Would you want some? What sorts of beads do you like? I would love to start doing some jewlery making with beads. Anyone here like caramels? Sea salted caramels?!?! Sea Salt caramels are the best thing ever! Would you like a hand dyed or hand painted scarf or wrap or other item? If so, what colors/designs/fabrics do you like? Love scarves (the bigger the better), and a hand painted/dyed on would be amazing. I like all sorts of different styles, see my etsy favorites for examples, and the only thing that I wouldn’t like would be something with skulls or made from scratchy wool. This was a question before, but does anyone here like stones? Just pretty polished stones for use in whatever purposes? Sure And another question; anyone like anything in particular from Think Geek? I always forget about them, but they do have quite a bit of fun stuff. Pinterest, do you have boards you want to share or are you following anyone with great boards you want to share? I don’t know what it is.

    Massive Treasure hunt SW ketchup

    I am sorrry my Dear Witch, for not getting this posted before leaving town! I'm blaming it on excitemet over seeing the significant other, as opposed to just my usual dorkiness. Anyway, here are a list of questions, that I think are updated through last night. If you need anything else, please poke me, and I'll respond much quicker and I promise to stay on top of the questions! Violette Market Update is up. Do you covet anything from it? I've only tried a few VM blends, but looking at the Lion & Lamb LE's the following look very nice: The Lost Woods of Killarney, The Lion and the Lamb, and Tir na nOg 2011. What three things are you craving right now? Mashed potatoes, coke and crystallized ginger paper goods, anyone need? including resume paper, and formal stationery as well as casual cards. I go through a TON of sticky notes. Love them, tiny ones to giant sized. 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?) Geek Goth! I'm pretty sure this would be my idea of heaven in scent form. Is there anything in your life that you'd like advice or a "selfhelp" book for?: (ie finances, eating healthier, meal planning) 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? I think it would be great! However, I live in the middle of nowhere and the nearest BPALista is about an hour away (Arlith- who is awesome, by the way). Let's say I have a pair of something you collect, would you like one of them and we have matching things? I would ADORE that!!!! What a great idea. Do you like poetry? Not really my thing. What types of scents do you like to scent your home? Which do you totally avoid? I'm not a fan of florals, but anything else, bring it on! I love foody/bakery types, lots of citrus in the spring and summer and vanilla in any form is love. What are your thoughts on comics? Any you like? Any you have been wanting to try? Favorite characters? Not a comic reader How do you feel about nail polish? What colors do you like? Sparkles? I'm quite ashamed to admit, I don't wear polish. I bite my nails. Household/kitchen goods/gadgets? I love kitchen gadgets of all sorts, and right now I really need to find a new candy thermometer. 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? Nothing that I can really think of. 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 soft snuggly fabrics: chenille, velvet, really the only thing that would be a no would be wool, and that is if it were to touch me, as I'm slightly allergic, but in a bag or something that would be fine, too. Anything with the Worm Moon update that you're already lusting after? LORD TEISHIN WITH A DEMON BEHIND A SCREEN, I NO HAYATA KILLS THE NUE AT THE IMPERIAL PALACE, MINAMOTO NO YORIMITSU CUTS AT THE EARTH SPIDER, and ENLIGHTENMENT OF THE COURTESAN JIGOKUDAYU are the ones I'm lusting after. I have Worm Moon '08, and while I like it, I don't wear it enough to justify another bottle. Would you want an invite to a site that is invite-only ex. Diaspora, Demonoid, etc. If so, what? I'm not sure what they are, so I would probably have to say no. Unless of course you think I would like it, then I'd have to say, I'd be happy to check it out. Pillows? What size/designs/colors would most interest you? I love pillows! Greens, browns for the living room and pinks, golds, for the bedroom. purses? bags? What style/colors? I love bags and purses!!!! Big ones! If I can't put a hard cover book and my camera in it, it isn't useful to me. I've got some favorited on my Etsy wishlist, so those might give you some ideas for style. Decorative scarves for hair and/or creative accessorizing? What colors? Sure. Again, some are favorited on my Etsy list to show the types that I like. 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)? I have never tried anything from them, but have lusted after some of the things on their website for a while now. I would love to try anything that you think I might like. 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? Definitely more cool colors (I like things with a purple or pink tone usually), and shimmer is great. 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. Good vanilla is always appreciated! Any other spices & herbs would be fun to try, especially if you have a favorite recipe to try them with. What's your favorite animal? Or is there one that's particularly significant to you? I love love love love bears! If you were able to get a vintage or prototype bottle from the upcoming West Coast Will Call, which one would you want? There are so many I would love to try! But seeing as I live so far from WCWC, I try not to look at them because I know the odds are so great against my ever getting to try them. However, glancing at the list, I would probably commit all sorts of naughty deeds to get my hands on any of the following: Enraged Bunny Musk, Monsterbait: Underpants ( I lust for this), Snow Maiden 2006, Red Phoenix, Velvet Panther V3, Cake Smash V6, CD:Alley of Games V6, Elf V4, Half Elf V5 and Sugar Plum Fairy V3. Actually, looking at that list, it is probably a good thing for my wallet that I can't go to Will Calls! DVDs, Blu-Ray, both, neither? DVD Sock Dreams? What kind? (anklets, footies, etc.?) Oooo Sock Dreams Love!!!! I have weird legs, and I love the socks that are ankle high. Since this is a price capped round, would you rather get one "big" thing or lots of "little" things or don't care? Whatever is easier for you Dear, Witch! Do you like pirate-related things? Not so much 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??? The soaps are taking over at Casa de Lucyboo! I love, and can ALWAYS use more Paintbox Sorbettos. The Significant Other recently stole my last hoarded Queen is Dead. I've tried a couple of other kinds, but I don't really care for the ones that aren't emulsifying. Next on my list to try is Villaness Smack. 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? I like lots of different types, but nothing modern or gothic. Would you like caffeinated lollipops?: http://www.lollyphil...cks-caffeinated Those look like fun! I wouldn't go out of my way to get them, but would enjoy trying them. Copied CD's or DVD's? Sure I'm going to Disneyland in a couple of weeks, is there anything I can get you? Nothing I can think of off the top of my head, but if you see something and think of me, then I would love it! Booze? Yay or Nay? what kinds? Unfortunately, right now it has to be a nay. I'm taking a med right now that makes drinking a very bad idea. Steampunk inspired items? Yay or nay? No thank you. Do you like amurigami dolls? I don't have any, but I think they are adorable! Pirates vs Ninjas vs Zombies - who wins? Which do you love most? Ok, in this case, for me, it's a case of which do I find the least offensive, and that would have to be pirates. But none of them are a big winner for me. 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 have a little longer than shoulder length hair and 99% of the time I wear it up. I love scrunchies, and clips and claws and really anything that pulls it out of the way. I've never really figured out a way to look good in a headband, though. I have thick, kind of bushy hair, and they always kind of give me a Bozo the Clown look. Piercings? - ears?? - elsewhere? Just ears... One hole in each. 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) Mmm... Chocolate. Especially White chocolate! Or milk chocolate, but no dark, please! I love to try the weird stuff! Bacon chocolate was too much fun, and I need to find some more to share with the Significant Other. 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? Not really, I have a couple that I read irregularly, and always like suggestions for more to check out. Do you need another bpal box? If so what would your fantasy one look like? Yes! Somehow my collection has exploded out of the 150 bottle chest that I was sure a year ago I would never, ever fill up! My fantasy is in my favorites in my Etsy wishlist. Do you enjoy gardening? If so, what kind of stuff do you grow? Vegetables, flowers? I don't have a place for it right now. Social Networking sites: lucyboo21 on Twitter and Joni Kay Orth on facebook, although I don't post anything on facebook, but I do, occasionally tweet. favourite artists or specific paintings? March 13 how about mix CDs? Sure! New music would be fun, especially since I'm going to be spending massive amounts of time in the car in the near future. Hey, how do folks feel about little e-goodies, like links to stuff your witchee likes? (articles online, pix, fic, etc) Those are great! Tim Tams? Yes or no? Chocolate Creme, Caramel, or Dark Chocolate? Mmmm... Tim Tams! I have loved all that I have tried! Is there any "classic" literature (Hemingway, Dickens, Elliot, Bronte, Hugo, Wilde, etc.) that you would like to add to your collection? I think I have all of the classics that I've wanted. candles and/or aroma melts: yay or nay? Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes!!!! If it can make me or my surroundings smellier then bring it on! Get your music player, what are the first 13 songs on Random? Ummm... I'm probably the last person alive that doesn't have one. But I like country, old rock, some pop, some folk. No rap, techno, but I like to try new things. Astrological charts and interpretation/ reports? I just had a marvelous chart done by Javenper, and I'd love to find out more about what some of it means. I'm quite a newby when it comes to Astrology, and need to learn more! I'd especially like to see out the Significant Others chart and mine connect. So how does everyone feel about receiving ebooks? I don't have an e-reader, (I'm lusting after a Kindle, but can't justify the $ right now) and I don't want to have to sit in front of the computer to have to read a book. Would you rather have HUGE list of things your witchee wants to try or just a highlight list? Huge List Baked Goods? Yea Nay? Baked goods are yummy! If not Baked goods and you are changing eating habits..a book of recipes perhaps that will help the new eating lifestyle? I love recipes!!! 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) Time does not bring relief, Womb Furie, BIWA, Burning Vulva, Dancing Koi, Festival Mask, Tea, Ushi, Aphrogenes, Areia, Hekaerge, Standing Female Nude, WILF, TKO, Crib Girls, White Rider, Black Rider, Ladon, Black Opal, Goblin, Imp, The Light of Men's Lives, The Night Raven, Old Demons of the First Class, The Old Goblin, Yew-Trees, Black Hellbore Honey, Tobacco Honey, Daphne Honey, Horse chestnut Honey, Laurel Honey, Yellow Jessamine Honey, Oleander Honey, Hemlock honey, Deadly Nightshade Honey, The Bow and Crown of Conquest, The Great Sword of War, Dirty, Dorian, 51, Snake Oil, Morocco, Windward Passage, And There Was a Great Cry in Egypt, Cupid Complaining to Venus, Carnaval Diabolique, Doc Constantine, Fazia the Black Mamba, Boomslang, Storm Clouds over the Midway, Eisheth Zeninum, Inez, Hand of Glory, The Maltese Cross of Sanctus Germanus, Tombeur, Emma, Josie, Bilquis, Crowley, War, Door, Hunter, Lady Una, The Stormhold, The Witch Queen, Lemon Scented Sticky Bat, Heroine, Dawn: Mother, Dawn: Cernunnos. Ummm... This would be my fantasy order if I win the lottery tonight. What level of nudity are you fine with on items? Ex: none, tasteful, erotica Any is fine 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? Sure, anything is fine, except the thought of used shoes is a little icky to me. Do you like cooking seasonings, like the kind you can get in ounce sizes? If so, things you'd love to try out? I have a good spice outlet near me, so I get small quantities of what I need so that they don't get old sitting in my cupboard. Do you like any particular kinds of green or black teas or coffees that could also be gotten in bulk? I'm not a tea or coffee drinker Favorite snack foods (and can they be from bulk section as well?) Absolutely. I'm addicted to crystallized ginger. Seriously, it's like crack for me!

    After Dinner-mints

    So what do you want from Paintbox Soapworks' Yule release? I MUST have the Mariner one!! Pine and sea spary? I cannot wait to try this one. Of course there are also a couple fall ones that I still need to grab. Oh, and Witch, you are so ebil! Thank you for satisfying my Queen is Dead craving. Until you sent it I’d never tried the slip. I’d always thought it would be too thin (plus, who needs more things to lust after, right?) Ummm… Not only do I love it more than any other lotion I have ever tried, it is already half gone because I can’t stop using it. Do they have a soap/perfume 12 step program? Would you like a box filled with Christmas/Yule treats? Sure. 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 I’m attempting NaNo this year. What I could use is a drill sergeant standing over my shoulder and yelling, “WRITE, DAMN IT!” I’m amazed at the number of things I can find to do to procrastinate… Like updating my SW blog… Did you know BPAL is on etsy with leftover trunk show bottles? Would you like any of them? The only one that really called to me was Enraged Orangutan Musk. Some of the others sound good, but I’d be afraid of a full bottle without taking it for a test drive. Would you prefer to have your final package before Halloween or have a reveal package at the end of the round? Well, since we are past Halloween, I’ll pick after! Really I’ve had so much fun being your witchee this round, that I’d like to put off the reveal as long as possible!!! But I do hope you reveal so I can shout my love from the rooftops. Do you prefer lip balm in a tube or tin? In a tube
