Cthulhu: yay or nay? OMGYAY!
Is there something that you wish you could do, but you keep putting it off? Get portraits of Ow1goddess and I taken.
Put your current mp3player (I am the anti-apple, so no ipod ), winamp playlist, what have you, on shuffle, list the first 10 songs:
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 caved and ordered Fruit Bat Fruit Bath. And I think Ow1goddess is planning to order some Spun Sugar Spectre, but you could always just tell her not to.
Do you have any interest in rocks? Not like, polished colorful stones.. but like... rocks. With geologic significance! I like rocks. I am a nerd. If they have significance, please tell me of it, so that when people admire my awesome rock I can tell them all about it!
If your witch were to knit you a scarf/shawl/cowl, which would you prefer, and what features would you want? Would you prefer something light and drape-y or thick and warm? What kind of colors would you prefer? Do you have any fiber allergies or preferences? I tend to prefer natural fibers, but I love all kinds of scarves/shawls! I don't own any shawls or cowls at all, I'm perpetually knitting them for others and not myself.
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. YAY TIME FOR SPOT PICTURES!!
Do you like/own/wear/want fairy wings or something of the like? I like them, don't own any, and I'm not sure when I'd wear them. Of course, if they're amazing, I will find a time.
How do you feel about terrariums? I feel that my cat may knock it over and eat the plants inside.
What's your favorite horror movie? April Fools Day!
If your witch was the practical type and wanted to include one or more of your everyday essentials, what would those include? I'm talking about the bath products, lotions, face lotions, teas, food, etc that you really use every day. I really need a better face lotion. The Hope in a Jar I have right now leaves me a greaseball by midafternoon. Not attractive.
Jane Austen .. Yay or Nay? Pride and Prejudice, YAYAYAYAYAYAY! Jane Eyre, OH HELLS NO.
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? Yes, I'm definitely interested! It sounds awesome! Nothing in particular comes to mind, though. I like Shakespeare?
Do you like period or period-styled paraphernalia? Stuff like postcards, notecards, jewelry, office supplies, what-have-you? YES.
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? It's all about the story and the art.
If you could choose a Smack from Villainess, what would it have in it? Limeade, Raspberry Plum, and either Spice Trade or Unearthed.
If you could have a salon scent made, based on any artwork(s) what would it be? Ooh, I'd want the frescoes from the Villa of the Mysteries in Pompeii! This one is my favourite panel: "The two themes of this scene are torture and transfiguration, the evocative climax of the rite. Notice the complete abandonment to agony on the face of the initiate and the lash across her back. She is consoled by a woman identified as a nurse. To the right a nude women clashes celebratory cymbals and another woman is about to give to the initiate a thyrsus, symbolizing the successful completion of the rite."
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.? It sounds like fun, but I might not get around to actually doing it, depending on what it is.
What's 'your' song/your theme song? Girl Anachronism, by the Dresden Dolls.
What would be your superpower? I am outing myself big time as a Slytherin, and probably not the best of moral character here, but did anyone else watch the X-Files and remember Pusher? I totally want to be able to do that. NOT TO HURT PEOPLE. I just want the person at the registrar's office to send me a transcript, darn it! I want the person in customer service at Verizon to listen to me when I tell them I've already done the simple troubleshooting like resetting the router/computer. I want people to stop fighting on vent and raid like civil people! I want people to pay attention in class! Is that really so wrong? (Fair warning, though: I might use it to convince people they want to let me have the Ashes of Al'ar. It's clearly too girly for our big butch Taurens. Give it to the female Blood Elf priest instead of the Druid or the Shaman! It's a no-brainer! >_> )
Witchee, would you like a gently used BPAL tshirt? Yep, as long as it isn't one of the ones I already have! (Naughty and Nice from the last Yule Inquisition, Miskatonic Valley Yuletide Faire)
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! I don't like coconut flakes, and I'm allergic to wheat. Other than that, as long as it's not too heavy on the raisins, anything goes! I love nuts!
Do you like charm bracelets? If you had a bracelet, what sort of charms would you want on it? Favorite hobbies, symbols, whatever? I used to have one, but I just wouldn't wear it now, between my watch and other bracelets.
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. Yes! Bring on the brushes!
Do you like Lego? Especially mini-fig key chains, Lego block keychains, small Lego sets, etc? I like the extra-dorky Lego, like Lego Harry Potter things. I would love a Lego Snape!
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. Halloween: Las Vegas, and Honey Hair Gloss!
Are there any characters that you love or identify with?
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?
Are there any Arcana Weenies that you MUST HAVE?
So what say you? IS an "unexpected" visit/in-person witching OK? YES! I would love that! You could coordinate with Ow1goddess ahead of time!
What strange misc. items would you love to receive that you just haven't gotten for yourself?
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?
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 hate petroleum-based lip balms. Hate. But I love Long Winter Farm on Etsy! I could never have enough of those. My beloved Earl Grey melted this summer, but I have Vanilla Pear, Red Currant, Blueberry Lemonade, and Lime, but I seem to recall there are about a billion more on my Etsy faves list.
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) It probably would be wasted on me. I like the black .35 rollerball pens.
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) Sadly, I am not a painter.
How do you feel about getting art supplies in general? (copic markers, watercolor, brushes, paint, sketchbooks etc.)
How do you feel about Threadless tshirts? I love them! I keep meaning to buy the boat-neck House Brawl girly tee, but I keep not getting around to it.
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? Nail polish and eye liner!
Darling Witchee, would you enjoy farmer's market pickled veggies (green beans, garlic, asparagus, etc) or fresh canned peaches or something of that nature? Bring. It.
Do you prefer color or black-and-white photographs? Nature or abstract? This may not be helpful, but honestly I love all of those things.
Would you be interested in something like this? https://lostcrates.com/how-it-works Sure!
Amigurumi, yes or no? VERY YES!
I have a question! What are some of your favorite paintings? (famous or undiscovered?) Feel free to link to examples!
If you could have an image painted for you - sky is the limit - what would it be? Oh wow. This is hard.
Name your 3 favorite scents for candles. Rehab: Lime, mint, and ozone get sorted out by French lavender and white musk. Crazy Bitch: An insanely fruity blend with hints of vanilla sugar. Cougar: An expert blend of blackberry and tart cranberry. Meow!
Name your 3 favorite types/flavors of tea. Earl Grey, Matcha, and White.
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?
How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc.... Candle would be okay, but I don't want to smell of pumpkin myself, generally, as it reminds me so much of candles.
Has anyone else heard of or does anyone else love Glamourkin? Some of them are awesome, some of them are not meaningful to me. My thought processes tend not to be so girly. I like "I promise you adventure", but not "Paint your sigil upon my heart" or "She sings a dove song".
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). I have a late 2006 iMac, which is going to be replaced in the spring (I hope). I'm using a Razer keyboard and a Razer Naga mouse. Both are wired, because having my mouse or keyboard die in the middle of a raid is likely to result in severe inconvenience. I'm in charge of heals for my WoW 25-man raid.
Would you like/wear a pair of these? http://www.ravelry.c...rary/yoga-socks If so, what color? Probably not. If I have an excuse to be barefoot, I don't want socks!
Is there anyone here who likes toe socks? You know, those socks with a place for each toe? I do! I like toe sockies.
I missed most of the crazy food team action, but I am another for team EAT ALL THE THINGS! I've never had brussels sprouts, though. And it has to be soy or turkey when it comes to team bacon. Oh, and there's the wheat-free thing. I guess I am Team Jewish and Team Gluten-Free!
Stuff I like from across the Atlantic: Jelly Babies, Fruit & Nut bars, Cadbury Eggs, Paprika Pringles, any kind of candy, really. I don't think I can eat Allsorts any more, though, since I can't have wheat. If I could find a digestive that wasn't made with wheat, I would turn cartwheels. Same with Jammie Dodgers. I miss them so damn much.
Dr Who fan? If I could only join one team, it would be TEAM TARDIS! I've been watching since I was a kid: Five is my Doctor! I am also so in love with Eleven! LOVE. Seriously. Matt Smith does a wonderful job of being The Doctor. I am going to have to stop talking about Doctor Who before people start staring.
Anyone love Buffy/Angel? I didn't get big into Buffy, but that was mostly because the friends I had who were super into it were so annoying talking about it that it completely turned me off.
Do you wear t-shirts? Are there particular things you like on them? Would you like one designed by your Witch? And, if you don't mind saying, what size t-shirt do you wear? I love t-shirts, I especially love geeky ones, and I would love one designed by my witch!
How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc.... Not a huge fan. I prefer leafy scents for fall.
Has anyone else heard of or does anyone else love Glamourkin? Never heard of it, but I'm willing to look into it!
Are you looking for a certain kind of DVDs to spruce up your collection right now? Not really.
Does anyone like postcards? Is anyone willing to be a Nacho witch for postcards? Sure, and sure! I can do Edgar Allen Poe-related postcards, the Poe Museum is right here in my hometown.
Anyone going to see any good concerts this fall? I wish! The Indigo Girls are coming next month, but I don't think we're going to be able to afford it.
Do you like Star Trek? Original TV series, films, spinoff series, etc? Favorite characters? In order of like: Next Gen (far and away my fave, I super love Data and Picard), TOS (SPOCK!), Voyager (for the holodoc and Janeway), DS9 (just haven't seen very much of this). Never got into Enterprise at all.
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? If I'm going to eat in the house I'm probably cooking. I would definitely be interested in kitcheny stuff. Right now my biggest wish is one of those big flat bent things for icing cakes.
New question: How do you feel about maple syrup? LOVE. But it has to be the real thing. I have family in Montreal, and when I was growing up we were kept supplied with homemade maple butter/maple syrup, etc., so if it's not 100%, I can tell.
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) Sure!
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) Yes, but if it has soy sauce it can't be made with wheat. :| I don't want to break a tooth on the stuff, either.
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. Whatever you think is funny.
Doctor Who? Yay or nay? (please don't make me cry by saying nay) YAY YAY YAY!!!!! I started watching Doctor Who on PBS in the 80s, and I was so thrilled when it came back in 2005! I loved David Tennant as the Doctor, and I love Matt Smith's Doctor, despite being super skeptical since he was so young. But love. OH AND AMY AND RORY AND RIVER A;LFJA;DJFA;LKDFJ;AGA;LKDJF;KAJDLKJF
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? YES times infinity!
Anyone love Buffy/Angel? I know I'm a bad geek, but I never got into this. I liked the original movie, but never really got into the show.
How would you feel about gummies? Like, gummy bears? Gummy werewolves? Gummy vampires? Haribo forever! Gummi frogs, peach rings, HAPPY COLA, gummy worms, you name it.
How would you feel about a totally original Gela-skin for your laptop/iPod/phone? Stickers? Decals? YES! I have an iPhone 4 with a green bumper.
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? Zombies! And I had a two-volume set of the real versions of fairy tales as a kid. When I watched The Little Mermaid and she didn't die at the end I was surprised!
Are your ears pierced, Witchee? Do you have any other piercings? Would you like to receive any items of jewelry for these piercings? Yep, my ears are pierced more than once, even.
How do you all feel about Whoopie Pies? As long as they don't contain wheat, I freakin' love them!
Interested in anything from Lush? I'd rather have BPTP stuff, honestly. I used to be huge into LUSH, but I've replaced the soap with Paintbox, the scrub with Villainess, and the lotion with BPTP bath oils.
Do you blog? Would you like a header for your blog, a layout, etc? I have a LiveJournal layout that I'm actually really happy with, but my Tumblr is HORRIBAD and I just can't seem to come up with something. I would love something for that!
Would you be interested in a handmade bookmark? Absolutely!
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? Yes! It just has to be one of the non-wheat chex kinds!
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.
do you like real sugar skulls? Things with sugar skull designs? Never had a real sugar skull. Sugar skull designs are hit or miss for me. Alicia's sugar skull necklaces are lovely, but I've seen some really hideous stuff out there.
Who here adores meringue? I can take it or leave it, for the most part.
Can you sum yourself (whether it be personality, life's goals, ethics, whatever) in 10 words or less? Wanted to be a surgeon, became actress, now nursing school.
How about little bottles of booze? Ya wanna? What kind? Yes, yes, yes! Crazy things! Especially in awesome little bottles!
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.) I live in beautiful, scenic, bigoted Virginia, where the weather is schizophrenic. I'm also allergic to wheat, so don't use wheat flour in the brownies! They do make some tasty brownie mix that's wheat-free.
Also, what about mochi? Love it, hate it, baffled by it? Love, but now I don't trust places here not to use wheat flour and I usually don't have access to an ingredient list.
Anything from the update ya'll are liking? BPTP UPDATE OMG, I want like everything. Except the Candied Pumpkin perfume. Pumpkin is just not really my thing. I went into a lot more detail in the order anything question.
Does anyone like kimchi? Not me. But I've only ever smelled it. :yikes:
Would you be interested in a sample box(from somewhere like Birchbox or loosebutton)? Definitely!
You have to place a Lab and Trading Post order. Right fuckin' now. No spending limits. What do you buy? OH HELLS YEAH. This is gonna get long. First, I'm going to hit the Trading Post. I'm buying Spun Sugar Specter bath oil, Castitas bath oil, (I'm a bath oil addict, but I don't have a problem or anything. .) The Orchards of Hell atmo. spray, Harvest Festival atmo. spray, Exotic Bazaar atmo spray, Sugar Skull soap, Streuobstwiese soap, and ALL THE HAIR GLOSSES (okay, okay, Honey hair gloss). Then I'd throw in the Halloween tissue tee (Idk my chest measurement but I'm a 32E), a pair of yoga pants (I'm 5'8", 11 stone, 29" waist, 40" hips; make of that what you will. I'm still losing weight and aiming for 9st 9.), and a pair of purple sockfeetz. Then I'd get a Goldfish Pool locket--the story is personally relevant since I was a professional actor. After that I'd hit up the Lab. I'd order a backup of Crowley (my first GC order ever, and boy did I hit it out of the park on that one), a bottle of Bordello (which I keep meaning to buy and never seem to get around to putting in the cart), and then I'd take chances on some 'weenies, but last year the 'weenies were a 100% washout on me, so I'm super wary here. What I really need is decants, but since money is no object here I went down the LE page and hit add to cart on anything that looked good. The first thing in was Sonnet D'Automne, which looks like the biggest hit of the bunch for me. It's tempting to get a bottle of Samhainophobia, which I bought in 2007 and still abso-fraggin-lutely love. I also am tempted by the Vampire Bride, Nymphae Avernales, The Glittering Apple of the Stars, Elegy IX: The Autumnal, Pumpkin Princess, and La Calavera Catrina. And since Blood Moon is still up, in it goes.
Paintbox Soapworks - anything you're interested in, in general or from the latest update? YES YES YES. It's all on my Etsy faves, but I want Cicada and Guy Fawkes and Indian Summer soaps!
Do you guys have any sports that you follow obsessively? How about favorite teams and/or athletes I don't follow anything but Doctor Who obsessively, and that's not a sport. If we're talking American football, I go for Green Bay. I was on my college's varsity fencing, and football/soccer team. Senior year I was captain of the Sabre team, too.
How do you feel about notebooks/journals/stationery? Anything you need or particularly like? I love notebooks! My preference is for ones with perforations for tearing sheets out cleanly. Other than that, I'm not particularly picky, though I prefer that they not be made it China, and have some recycled content.
Does confetti/glitter make you angry or fill you with glee? Glitter makes me angry. Confetti is fun!
Fabulous witches and witchees, perhaps you all could note of you've received MeiLin's goodies? Or if you want? I have not and I am open to the idea!
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'm picky about plushies, but the most recent acquisition on that front is an amigurumi adiposeling (Doctor Who again!) from DixieHellcat who ROCKS MY SOCKS. I love it! Before that, I got a wind rider hatchling (yes, I play WoW. For the Horde!)
How interested would you be on somewhat personalized bottle cap labels? Like these that I did? Okay, confession: this question was on a page that I skipped, but I'm assuming that these are for BPAL bottles? If so, YES!
When you're miserably sick (*sniffle, cough!*) what are the things that comfort you the most? Honestly? My wife and my kitty. Snuggles, back/foot/face rubs, and just knowing someone cares help so much. So maybe e-cards? Ooh, and food that's not full of dairy. I am so unhelpful here, aren't I? *hangs head*
What constitutes ultimate luxury to you? (go crazy!) Expensive truffles. Ridiculously HTF BPAL. Silk or cashmere sock or lace yarn.
What do you really NOT want? Things that suck? I don't know where this question is headed...
How would you feel about kitchen towels and other similar household objects, if they are pretty or a souvenir? Sure, I don't really use them in the kitchen, but I can stick them in the bathroom! Our bathroom is green and blue.
How did you dress up for your last party or compulsory-formal-dress occasion? Little black dress with a simple necklace, freshwater pearl french hook earrings, and Fluevogs.
Do you enjoy puzzles/riddles? (Cryptograms, Sudoku, Crossword, Jigsaw, etc) The only kind of puzzles I don't love are slide puzzles.
Would you like to receive e-books? And if so, in what format? Probably not, the only e-reader I have is my iPhone.
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!) Yes, and I'll even check out the linked ones in a few minutes.
Are there are patterns, motifs, etc that you especially like? Not that I can think of at the moment!
Witchee, would you be interested in having a special tea cup/coffee mug/glass to drink out of? I so would!
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? I happily accept all teas, provided that they are not strongly chamomile or mint.
Anyone here like caramels? Sea salted caramels?!?! Yes, and HELLS YES.
Would you like a hand dyed or hand painted scarf or wrap or other item? If so, what colors/designs/fabrics do you like? I would LOVE it! I'd love hand dyed/ hand painted yarn as well! I like green, silver, black, blue, purple, and red. :3
And another question; anyone like anything in particular from Think Geek? I have a wish list there, it's in my questionnaire!
Pinterest, do you have boards you want to share or are you following anyone with great boards you want to share? I have yet to check out pinterest.
