    SW Q & A

    Questions and Answers for BPAL Switch Witch! A note to my witch! Also to any Nacho witches out there! I would love something from you to add to my journal. I have a journal that traveled and a journal that I MEANT to travel (that idea died when mom didn't take me seriously-it was supposed to be an ongoing letter...oh, well). Both have artwork from different people in them. I would just love to have something from YOU-art or no (art is in the eye of the beholder, no?) even if it is your grocery or "to-do today" list! Do you like s'mores and s'mores-flavored things? I don't really enjoy the marshmallow/chocolate/graham cracker experience, no. Pass on this What's the neatest freebie you've gotten? It can be cool or thoughtful or just totally unexpected, and not limited to BPALdom. I've been gifted with a lot of things over the years. I'm trying to think of the NEATEST, and everydamnedthing is jumping up and saying "Me! Oh ooh, pick me!" So, I guess you could really say that every time someone gives me something it is "the neatest"! I'm kind of corny that way, I guess. I feel really silly admitting that. 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) I have too much in my kitchen now, but I LOVE chopsticks, even if I don't really use them well. Spice mixes...sure! Put a useful recipe on that puppy and I'll probably even use it! What I really would like is a one/two person Asian one. No one in this house other than me and sometimes my 4 YO son like rice...so it only ever gets made if it is for lunch, and that's a "meh, it's ok" sort of lunch because I don't have a good source for anything more than soy sauce and teriyaki sauce. I'm not well versed in MAKING Asian dishes, but I love to eat them when I (very rarely) find a good restaurant. Make sense? EDITED to add that apparently I need a noodle cutter. What with the inundation of eggs, mom says to make noodles with them. To use a noodle cutter. Also, a rolling pin. How can I not have a rolling pin?? 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? Goodness knows I need new ones! My inner thighs rub holes in all of my pj bottoms I need something PETITE! Sized 16, so Large/XL depending on how they run. Also? A drawstring or elastic top is the most awesome. My rear needs a lot of room, so I size my pants for that (natch) but the tops will fall down if there's nothing to cinch them. What kind of chocolate do you like? Nuts, no nuts, white,dark, etc? Milk chocolate, almonds, hazelnuts, sometimes white chocolate, but not dark!! I live near a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Penzeys! What does your little heart desire from any or all of these places? I have none of those here, so I have no idea. Are home made foods acceptable or does the idea of eating strange mailed food disturb you? I'm cool with eating strange mailed food Just let me know what it is-spicy? Need to be reheated? Made with ants? Just let me know! 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! I'd snag a Starbucks cold vanilla frappuccino. Sock aisle for knee high SOCKS! Then I'd head back to the scrapbooking aisle and fill up the rest of my $13.50 with various papers and inks and stuff. 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? Asian and Italian are my top top top favorites. I love this local Italian restaurant, Chiodo's. I fell in love with "chinese" food when I was very young, but I'm very americanized in my exposure. Gan Pong (or Gang Pang) Chicken from Mark Pi's in Columbus, Indiana is my current favorite and I really miss it when I'm home in PA I'm from Canada - is there anything specifically a witchee might like that is only available here? I wouldn't refuse maple syrup, but believe it or not, I am not a fan-it would be of greater use to hubs. what are your "fandoms" and would you like a t-shirt from TeeFury if an appropriate one came up? I have no idea about TeeFury, I love certain stories, but have never been part of a "fandom". Color me uneducated in this area. Labyrinth, Harry Potter, Anita Blake, Meredith Gentry, The Otherworld D'Artigo sisters, Game of Thrones, the Kencyr Jame, Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" series, the original Dragonlance stories are all favorites of mine. Do you have an eReader and if so which one? I use the Kindle App for Android and Audible. Do you like candles, or tart burners, or something? If so, what's your favorite scent to burn? I like candles but tea lights are the best. I use unscented if I'm burning my BPAL oils (the ones that I love that don't work on my skin). The scents that I love the most in my house are usually the Yules. I have a tart burner and hubs bought me a bunch of tarts at Christmas last year. I still have most of them PLEASE NO CINNAMON!! Ugh. Marzipan? I'll try it, but don't send a lot-I wouldn't want it to go to waste if I don't like it :/ 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? This is an interesting idea! Yes, please! Do you drink alcohol and if so, would you be OK with your witch sending you homemade infused vodka? I don't think you can send alcohol to PA? I do drink occasionally-always sweet! 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? Australian native spices sound intriguing! If you include a way to use them, that would be bonus points! 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)? Anything that you are thoughtful enough to make for me, I will cherish. 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? You really don't need to include something if it is "work" (don't want my witch to feel pressured!) but if you feel a need to pass the love to the rest of my household, hubs loves chocolate and peanut butter, the kids love all candy, and small necklaces/bracelets are always a hit with the two small ones. 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. OH, GODS, please!!! 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? Yes!! How would you feel about a taste of (insert witch location here) box If you love it and want to share, please do! 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 this is a cool idea! I love bats and respect that they serve a purpose. Some of your favorite artists? Classic and modern? I've loved Boris Valejo, but for now, go see my etsy Faves. 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? Etsy Faves! 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? Envy. If the Last Unicorn scents count, then Magic, Do As You Will. By the same token, if Fraggles count, then Mokey! 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? Ha. I LOVED my Nerd Lacquer trio but needed the money more, so I sold them. I do like polish-indie or mainstream-deep metallics, shiny, jewels. 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? I'm good with those as I like "easy". Send 'em along! 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? Oh, holy crap-YES! Would you be interested in beer, wine, or other specialty beverages from your Witch's area? If you're willing to risk a misdemeanor to do so, then I say "Yes!" Keeping in mind that I like my alcohol on the sweet side (honey mead, rieslings, sherry, hard cider, etc)! 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? Only art journaling at this time. Yes, I would love some tips and tricks and examples, especially! I'm not great in the "inspiration" area and often just don't know what to do or what order I want to do it in Who here would be happy to get a lil' sumthin sumthin from Adagio Teas? Yes, please! I'm a black tea gal-I take it with (soy)milk and sugar. I've got a great Monk's Breakfast, Hot Buttered Rum, and Wild Blackberry trio of loose leafs that I just started experimenting with. My tea ball fell apart, though. Do you Ravelry? And if so, what's your handle over there? Would you be interested in gift patterns from your queue? You betcha. I'm turtlejen over there and yes-I would be interested in gift patterns from my queue. Just don't mind me if I don't get that item made...immediately. Who likes Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses? Um. I think I'll pass on that one. Ninjas or Pirates? Steampunk Airship Pirates, all the way. 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? Oh, PLEASE! 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? The only thing specifically "vintage" that I can think of that I would love to get my hands on is fabric. The old pillow fabric? Their kitchen towels are nice! Aprons. Do you have any Fall or Halloween traditions? Not traditions, exactly. I love to see decorations that people put up, but rarely take the time (or spend the money) on any for myself, but I do take the kids out Trick or Treating. Mostly I just love the whole season. Especially the wind. Not helpful, I know, but I adore the colors, the cooler weather, the apples and the whole sense of getting ready to snuggle down for the winter. a) Are you OK with "special deliveries"? Is the address in your questionnaire the best place to reach you for said deliveries? c) If the delivery requires a phone number (as say, some florists do) would you be OK with that information being tracked down by your Witch or asked of you anonymously? Interesting! Yes, yes, and yes Put your iPod/MP3 player/what-have-you on random and list the first 10 songs it plays! Welcome Home-Coheed and Cambria All Good Things-Nelly Furtado My Love-Justin Timberlake El Phantasmo And The Chicken-Run Blast-O-Rama-White Zombie Secrets-One Republic Speed of Sound-Coldplay Into the Night-Santana (featuring Chad Kroeger) Dare-Gorillaz Personal Jesus-Marilyn Manson Du Hast-Rammstein Witchee, what are your favorite quotes? "Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most"-Mark Twain What's one random thing you really like and one random thing you really dislike? Pass? 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. Ooooh, COOL~Choose something for me!! Especially if I could use it in my cold-process soap! No lavender or chamomile, though-I have plenty of those! If there are no "witchy" shops near you, is there anything I can pick up for you from Enchantments? Again, COOL~pick something! What are some things you are OK with receiving gently used or homemade, and some things you absolutely do not want if they are gently used or homemade? I'm good with anything you think I might love! Stuffed things: yea or nay? If it is hand made, I'll love it. I have my minion and my dragon and an olive that I can add it to What does your kitchen look like? Colors/style? Right now, it is a mix of light blue and white, with not enough counter space, tooooo many things sitting out in the open due to lack of cupboards, and in dire need of a re-do. Witchee, would you like it if I made you a "mix tape" of songs that I think you might like? And if so, would you prefer mp3 or CD format? Absolutely! Either format is fine. I know it is totally the wrong season (for most of us), but do you like/have space to garden? If so, what do you like to grow? Yes, I love to grow tomatoes but haven't had any luck in the last few years (blight, blight, blight). Herbs, especially basil! Stevia, chamomile, lavender, garlic! Onions, beans, peas, carrots. Pumpkins and melons this year. I'm about to be near a Lush store next week, is there anything you might like from there? Oooh, Curly Wurly or a bath bomb? I'm going sulfate/silicone free, so as long as you're not buying me hair care products with those in them, I'll use them! Songs that you keep meaning to buy but never get round to it? Pumped Up Kicks-Foster the People Blown Away-Carrie Underwood Drive By-Train Movies that you love but forgot to put in your questionaire? 9, Coraline, Stardust, How To Train Your Dragon, Spirited Away, Practical Magic Name one movie you keep meaning to buy, but just never get around to getting? 9, Stardust, How To Train Your Dragon, Practical Magic Any favorite Bath & Body Works scents/products? Scented hand sanitizers Haus of Gloi is offering custom perfumes - would you like one? What would your ideal blend be? Sure, I'd try! Oakmoss, Red Musk, Fig, Sandalwood 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? I don't know! I love honey (especially dark!!) Are there any if MeiLin's books (e-book or print) you'd be interested in? Sure, I'm game! Either format is fine. 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 ? I love Disney movies, even though I think too many I wouldn't mind stickers or something small like that. Dear witchee, would you, could you use an electric candle warmer? i'm talking something like this. That's cute! COULD I use it? Yes. WOULD I? Probably not as I don't keep jar candles around...if you really really want me to have this then I guess I would start collecting jar candles. Do you lust after some new socks/tights? Knee high socks, crew socks, stripes, patterns, plain, whatever. I love socks. Are you a gamer (of any sort - video, casual, tabletop) and are there any games you want? I play WoW, SWTOR online, then Bejeweled, Angry Birds, "find the hidden objects" games on my tablet. I would love to have the full version of any of the hidden object games for Android. Would you be interested in BPTP CANDY? Butterscotch!!!!! Do you like coffee? If so, what kinds? Flavored, fancy, basic? Beans or ground? Yep, I use K-cups. Basic unflavored coffee, please! K-cups can be expensive though, so don't feel you need to get me coffee Would a Starbucks gift card make you happy or do you prefer your local place? I would love a Sbux card. 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...? YES!!!! Coffee MUG or soap dish...rustic, Autumnal colors, microwavable for the coffee mug pretty please? Do you have a forum buddy? Someone who knows you and/or your tastes well enough to answer questions on your behalf? Not exactly, but I can be poked by Yewberry or Mordath or TwilightEyes or thepiratequeen or holborne or dixiehellcat as they all know me from Rav. Or any of the usual channels for SW 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? I don't need anything at this time (I figure if I haven't used it by now, surely I can get by without it??) A question, witchees: if you are into tarot, what is your favorite card? I love the Death card. Change is a good thing. And another question: would you like your own set of handmade rune stones or worry stones? No, not unless something just screams "TURTLEJEN!! I BELONG TO HER!!" for you Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cider, or none of the above? Coffee and Tea!! Gum, hard candy, soft candy, or none of the above? I'm a sucker for Werther's Coffee flavored candy. Also Trolli's gummy worms. Loose tea or tea bags? Do you need anything for your loose tea? (Filters, presses, etc.) I use both, but my tea ball fell apart, so I'm winging it. If you like tea, what kinds? Black. Not a red tea or green tea or white tea fan. Black tea in a handful of flavors, add soy (milk/cream) and sugar. Sip in bliss. Do you do Goodreads or LibraryThing or a site like that? If so, can I see your to-read list, please? I do have an account with both...RARELY remember to update them, I'm sorry :/ Zombies; Yay or Nay? YAY! Unless they're eating my head.... If you have cats, do they like catnip toys? If you have doggies, would they like a super-reinforced canvas toy with a squeaker in it? Zoe, my dog, is rather more into balls than squeaky toys. If you have kids, what are they into? Ryan (4) loves cars, trains, trucks, WHEELS. Raina (5) is pretty much a tv junkie, mostly preferring to sing and dance as opposed to actually PLAYING with anything. How do you feel about wearable knitted lace? Shawls, wraps, and the like? LOVE! Looking at the warehouse, I notice that our lovely Greenwoodtree is able to do chart readings and/or forecasts at a very reasonable rate. Is this something you would want? Absolutely. Candy Corn? Not so much for me, but hubs and the kiddos love it. I live in Japan. Anything you would be interested in from there? *Mind draws a blank* Pick something? If I were your witch, is there anything you would like from there (skull jewelry, art prints from an artist that catch your eye, etc), or anyone whose autograph or photo or such you would dig? By now, you should have seen enough of my likes that you could get an idea of what sort of art/jewelry/stuffz I'm into, also that anything from you will make me happy Autographs or photos would go into my art journal, so don't spend a *ton* of money on one, ok? You are meeting up with someone on a casual lunch/early afternoon thing. This person is someone you want to impress/look good for (for whatever reason, not necessarily romantic, and not necessarily for business either). What would you look like, given the contents of your wardrobe/etc? Brown broomstick skirt, layered tops to drape over the belleh and butt-butt...I'd sweat over my minimalistic footwear and probably put on knee-high socks with my brown too-tight-but-covers-my-whole-foot heels. You are to be let loose in a clothing store of your choice, to pick a full outfit, down to the shoes, the accessories, etc. and things would be altered to fit you if needed. What store would that be, and what would you look like? ZOMG, I need an adult! HALP! I'll probably dress myself like a gypsy. This is what I want to look like when I grow up; You open a box from the post office to reveal the 3 things you want most right now. What are they? (caveats: size doesn't matter, but they have to be tangible/buyable). FLUEVOG BOOTS! A tea infuser. Anything from my etsy faves. WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH YOUR ASS OFF!!! movies, comedians, black humor, your partner, a comic strip? what? All of that. I watched Ralphie May last night and just hearing my husband laugh unabashedly made me laugh. What is your holy grail "I'd kill to just have one drop in an imp" bpal scent? Oh lord. I'd love to smell Storyville again. Are there any existing Weenies that you have your eye on, but haven't gotten around to getting? Existing Weenies. My husband smells fan-fucking-tastic in John Barleycorn. I'd love to be able to slather him in that. I have half of an aged imp that I'm hoarding. If you wear earrings, do you have pierced ears? Yes, I do! I don't like huge, or terribly long, or heavy. Small dangles are fine! Say, less than an inch? My new job is at a consignment store where we have all kinds of designer brands for very reasonable prices. Are there designer clothes/purses/sunglasses that you desire/love? (Give some indication as to your "style" as well. For example, do you like bohemian-style frocks in lavender? Crossbody purses in black? Sunglasses that are round and bug-like?) I would love a soft brown leather bag with compartments to replace the mesh one that I carry everywhere now. It would be nice to be able to find stuff instead of perpetually emptying it out when I need to locate that lip balm that is hiding at the very bottom.... I'm a petite! 16-18 in bottoms and L/XL (small shoulders but with a belleh) for tops. I realize that we had a similar question in the ?aire, but I need you Witchee-s to list at least 5 items, each ranging $20 and under from Amazon.com or Walmart.com. I'm updating my wishlist every day. Keep checking it, dear witch! Do you subscribe to any sample boxes, and if so, which ones? Would you like to receive some samples? (perfume, eco/"green," skin care, hair, music downloads, cosmetics, soap...) I do not, but as I love to get mail-this would be FUN!! Would you like a pair of knitted socks? Yes, I would love a pair of knitted socks. Do you have any use for knitted dishcloths, facecloths, etc, especially if they were fandom related? I would love them, fandom related or not. My Little Pony... Cute or meh? Not a fan, sorry. In the meantime, let me know what you like to do on the Internet to kill time. Flash games? What are your daily websites/blog visits, or favorite YouTube videos? Ravelry, BPAL are the two places that I hang out. Other than that, I love to play on Pogo but haven't bought time in a few years (there's an idea!). And what are your favourite characters from your fandoms? Labyrinth-Jareth Firefly-Wash Game of Thrones-Tyrion Lannister Alphas-Rachel Lip balm - tube or tin? I'm more tube, I think. Would you like to receive a journal or sketchbook? How about other pretty paper goods like post-its, notepads, bookmarks, letter paper/envelopes? You know, I tend to collect paper and books and things. I would LOVE to receive a journal or sketchbook. Yes, and yes, and yes. Are you interested in audiobooks? If so, any specific titles? LOVE them, and have an audible account that already has a wishlist two pages long...I have credits there, I just haven't had time to listen to some of the titles I've already downloaded!! Bar soaps with some scrubby bits, yes or no? I really don't want to get bar soaps-I make my own and am swimming in them already :/ I'm sorry! Do you need any small electronic gadgets like flash drives and the like? Need? Nah. Do you have a problem with nudes??? Not at all. People ask a lot of questions about dogs and cats, but I know a lot of forumites have rodent pets. How would you feel about hammocks or toys for your rats/hamsters/gerbils/etc.? Sure! I'd love a new hammock or two for the ferrets! I keep meaning to make them...but. Paintbox Soapworks: Interested in anything from her? I would try a sugar scrub or a hand cream if you feel the need, but I really like to stick with BPAL for my perfumes are there any other e-tailers you're desperately wanting to try? if so, any specific items/scents/etc? Not desperately, no-don't stress over it. I would like to try some of Lush's Curly Wurly, though...that idea got into my head in a BAD way!! Alsoooo, just fell in love with MAC, Fyrinnae, and Bare Escentuals :/ Would love to get stuff from them. ThinkGeek: anything interesting to you on there? No, I suppose not. I've managed to go this long without it. What's one thing you want, right now, that you're having difficulty finding? An MP3 of the Eagles' Album "Hell Freezes Over" Who here is going to be picking up JK Rowling's new book on Thursday I didn't know about it. If it sounds interesting, I'll report back but honestly I would just get it on audio or Kindle anyway. What do you do to take care of yourself when you're having a rough day (sick, life not going your way, whatever)? I try to sit in my chair with the heated blanket and drink hot tea while I knit or read or just sniff my BPAL (I know, strange). I will sometimes tell hubs that I'm leaving the kids and all the duties up to him while I go up and take a long hot soak while listening to an audiobook or music. favorite and least favorite baked goods? Favorite-chewy chocolate chip cookies. Hands down. Then I'll take apple pie/dumpling. Least favorite-quiche. Blech. Also not a fan of the lemon or lime pies (no idea if those are baked!) what size T-Shirt do you wear (standard AND babydoll)? I need a Large if it is standard, never worn a babydoll T-shirt but I would assume a large as well. I found a fantastic little shop while traveling that had unusual jellies and jams. Would you be interested in trying something like Georgia Moonshine Jelly or TOE Jam (each letter stands for some kind of fruit, I don't remember which ones) or something similar? How about homemade jam in general? Absolutely. Jams and jellies are what I love on toast and with peanut butter. Would you be interested in homemade herbal remedies and tinctures? YES! Especially if there were instructions!! Witchee, do you want anything from the Haunt update coming up on 10/3? I know it might be too early to say, but if you could look at the preview on the night of 10/2 and let me know if you want anything... Holding for the update.... Batik and Witch-Wife sounds awesome, as does the Bettie lip balm. Adding "Cask" lust to my want list! Is there something(s) that you consider too spendy or too frivolous for you to buy for yourself, but that you actually want? Anything off of my etsy faves or my BPAL wishlist Do any of Villainness' Soap Box exclusive scents interest you, especially any of the Smooches/Whippeds? I would try the Datura, Ennui, OOOh-EMBARGO!, Jai-Mahal! Do you use or would like to try loose eyeshadow pigments? Yep, I have some samples and I'll take any that I can get. I'm a rust/green/gold/brown sort of girl. If you like necklaces, what are some symbols or images that you would love to have a necklace depict? (ex. spiders, skulls, hearts...?) Tortoises, I suppose. Dragons. What's a new company to you that you most want to try a product from or what would be a new product to you that you most want to try (make-up, perfume, or bath/body)? Anything in my Etsy faves but I've gotten a Unicorn Farts lip balm from LongWinterSoapCo. I'd really like any of the Indie nail polishes that I just faved. Would anyone like a witch pendant? Sure. I don't have anything against them. Arcana Update Spirit and Shadow perfume, Sleepy Hollow perfume, Claw and Teeth...any of the perfume oils! What do you think of Shiro Cosmetics Halloween Collection? (www.shirocosmetics.com) They look gorgeous! Count me in! Yes, please! Yes, all the yesses! If you had a fairy for NYCC, what exclusive scent would you kill to own? Oh, god, the atmo sprays!! Especially Hattie Taylor. Nymphes, then Badgers, then any of the others. WITCHEE, DO YOU WANT ANYTHING FROM CALIFORNIA? Not so much. I love the Laces from Dark Delicacies, but I don't need them. Comic Books I used to collect the Elfquest comics when they FIRST CAME OUT and my brother and I had almost all of them when we lost all the comics to a fire in the next apartment. I don't collect any anymore. Ingenuitea? ZOMG, excuse my language, but FUCK YES!!! Oh, please. This sounds like exactly what I need.

    Newbie Lunacy Full Moon BPAL FAQs

    To my knowledge, yes. I don't think that 72 is "hard and fast"-if that time frame ended on a Sunday, then it gets extended to Monday, I believe. It's a good thing to be aware of, though.

    Dad Scents

    I am nowhere near prolific in my knowledge of BPAL, but manly scents so far *for me* have been Metal Phoenix, Brom Bones (good luck finding them but you can use them as a jumping-off point for locating something similar). The Robotic Scarab, Scarecrow could both be. Also, Velvet Dogs Playing Poker smells like my grandpa's Old Spice aftershave. LOVE IT for a manly scent.

    There's a leathery, smokey, sweet smell out of the bottle. Caramel! Yes, musks, sure, but that caramel is what strikes me first. I really liked it on. It lasted for hours and I enjoyed it the whole time. Trying to decide if this is a MUST HAVE or if I'll just be happy to have experienced it.
