    Autumn Lace

    This is gorgeous! It reminds me so much of Black Lace. It's like a sweeter, woodsy, Black Lace. I'm glad I bought two bottles. This is totally a favorite!

    Siberian Musk

    I get all the sexy, musky, smokiness of Snake Charmer. It's really beautiful. This is the first single note that I actually "get". Beth's blends are so amazing, I found many single notes to be lacking. Not Siberian Musk! It's gorgeous and would be my new "go to" scent if it was GC.

    Dolly Kei

    My skin must be broken. It starts off smelly sickening sweet and just like Silver Haired Bat. It has now morphed into Antikythera Mechanism. I was hoping to smell the amber and myrrh, but I don't detect either.

    Boystyle Aristocrat

    I thought I would love this. Not so. I smell pure baby. That powdery soapiness of baby things. That's it.
  5. I'm a red musk junkie! I adore that stuff! Some of my favorite blends with red musk are Hygeia, Luna Negra, and MME Moriarty, Red Lace, and L'essence de Passion. Hygeia and Red Lace are particularly perfect.

    Variety of Pleasing Amusements

    This is beautiful. It's just what I wanted Perversion to be. The tobacco note is prominent with the honey sweetening it beautifully. The leather is subtle and sexy with the myrrh adding a slight smokiness. It's very well blended and difficult to pick out the individual notes (but I've been huffing and seriously trying!) It's really gorgeous and sexy but not in-your-face. This will age beautifully too, I think. Definitely back-up bottle worthy. (Possibly two back up bottles!)
  7. Is there anything you either didn't like or had never heard of that you're now curious to try thanks to the discussion in this thread? Yes! Paintbox Soaps Reveal? I will Would you be interested in the #occupywallstreet scent? Not really. I am afraid of patchouli after a bad experience with Banshee Beat Do Paintbox Soapworks' Goat's Milk Hand and Body Creams sound like something you'd like to try? Who likes silly items from Archie McPhee??? Nocturne Alchemy's NAlloween Pt. 2 update is live here! (And for a few days, last month's update too.) What do you want? What are you drooling over from the Sock Dreams Halloween stuff? FREAKIN EVERYTHING! Luck charms? Nope! Does anyone want anything from... here...? I wish... For those of you that like candles, do you like stuff from Yankee Candle? And if you had to choose, tarts or candles? I'm having a bit of a tart obsession at the moment, but I LOVE their candles too. I'm having a special love affair with Pink Sands right now and NEED more. Also LOVE Mistletoe and Fig. I like autumn and xmas scents the best! Would you be interested in getting a custom necklace fromhere? I don't really wear any jewelery. Is there a movie you want so badly that you don’t own now?Lion King on Blue Ray!! (I'm buying it for myself for my birthday next week though!) I also really want Angels with Dirty Faces, Gilda, You were Never Lovelier, Swingtime, Sleeping Beauty, and I need a new copy of The Rocky Horror Picture Show since a friend borrowed mine and moved to Brazil with it! Is there a song on Itunes that you haven’t downloaded yet? I want the new Tori Amos CD. I don't download from ITunes though. I prefer Amazon. ITunes got my credit card hacked the one time I used them and it took 6 months of fighting with my bank for them to refund me. Is there a rare book you’ve always wanted? None that I can think of off hand. Is there anything you want to buy yourself but have been too embarrassed (R rated or pg)? I have no qualms about sexuality! Have you seen the Lush holiday update? Do you like the look of anything from there? Not really. if you were my witchee, would you want some of my hot nuts my candied nuts my nuts covered in butter and brown sugar candied walnuts? Oh heck yeah! As long as you don't use flour. Does anyone else like collector Barbies?I actually have about 50 of them. They are in boxes in my closet though. I no longer display due to space constraints and fear my beasts would harm them. What small everyday items would you like, that you keep forgetting to get?I want one of those drug store blackhead squeezy stick things. (the thing with the loop on the end..?) I suck at girldom but I LOVE squeezing skin and that tool would allow me to squeeze my husband more efficiently without him bitchin! lol I'm gross! Tarot I don't really know anything about it. I don't practice it. Telling the future really does not fit with my spiritual beliefs. Tell me about something you like, and why you like it.I like(love) to read. I have a great imagination and truly feel like I am "in" in stories. I get genuinely attached to the characters and love being in other places. If you're the MMU type of Witchee, what Geek Chic Cosmetics tickle your fancy? I have no idea what this means... I googled and that's freaking adorable! I would probably never actually use any of it. Would any witchees be interested inQuinn Popcorn? It sounds yummy, but I'm not longer vegan so it's not necessary. Are there any DIY / Crafty / Free / Budget items you'd love to get but haven't noted yet? (Or, maybe you'd just like to emphasize something you may have only noted in passing?) You have already beautifully addressed my love of crochet. (I'm making the headband in the book with the yarn you sent me!!) Do you own a DSLR camera? Are you interested in a minky camera strap like these? What about anything from Photojojo? No and no Is anybody else into film photography? Interested in receiving film, supplies, etc from Lomography? No thanks. Are you musically inclined? Do you play an instrument or sing? If so, what? I wish! I will one day take cello and classical singing lessons! I want to be a mixture of Julian Lloyd Webber and Dame Janet Baker! 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? Nope!
  8. how do you feel about ethical animal fiber, i.e. wool and the like? I prefer it for crocheting and things. I would love to be able to buy clothes made out of ethical or sustainable materials, but I live in no-mans-land and that isn't an option yet. I especially like bamboo yarns. Incredibly stuff. What about little wee creatures for your desk or mantel?Definitely!!! If I get into PA school, I will need one or two for my desk at school! Look down. What are you wearing, right now?Victoria's secret panties and a sports bra Kerchiefs?I bought some in Japan and they are still in wrappers since I really don't know what to do with them! It's the weekend, and you find yourself without a single chore or responsibility for a few hours. Right this very moment, what's the one thing you would do if you could do anything?Cuddle up in bed with Dante and read. I'm actually going to do that shortly...I have an hour to myself! Stuff you've been meaning to do:Laundry, clean kitchen, donate all the mismatched, older plates/cups/etc that I have and don't use, do a major spring cleaning and donate everything I haven't looked at in 6 months, get the VW detailed, trim Dante's nails, get an oil change in the Santa Fe, finish AIDS Institute documents, clean my desk at work, place a Haus of Gloi order, this could go on forever... Would you be interested in regional jams, jellies, or other preserves? HELL TO THE YES!! Do you have any bedtime rituals? Is there any particular product you have to apply or a certain shirt you wear or an act you perform to get you in the "bedtime" mood?I snuggle Dante. Are you interested in today's/any recent Tee Fury shirts?I think I'm going to order it! Princess Bride? Yay or nay?I think my stance on this is pretty clear! What's your favorite classic fairytale, witchesMy favorite "witch" is Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. She is such a baddass. "I too shall bestow a gift on the child. Listen well, all of you. The princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, beloved by all who know her....but...Before the sunsets on her sixteenth birthday she shall prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die! Stand back you fools!!!" *maniacal laughter* Seriously, cursing a newborn is pretty hardcore. Then she turns into a freakin DRAGON. She's awesome! Is there any kind of international candy you love or would like to try?Any candy is fine by me! What is something totally random (yes, that thing that just popped into your head) that hasn't been covered by any previous questions?This headache sucks. Is there any cheesy/non-cheesy Canadian stuff you'd be interested in?I don't really know of anything Canadian. If you were to go here and create your very own chocolate bar, what might it have in it? Gold. I would have Caramel, Toffee, Peanut Butter, and almonds somehow all separated but together! Is there anything you're wanting from LPMP? I don't know what this is asking me....I haz a dumb. say you stumbled into Camp Half Blood (or whatever the Roman camp ends up being named <bounces in anticipation>), which god claims you? I'm only 25, but these questions are making me feel old...I have zero touch with pop culture apparently. What is something people are always surprised to learn about you? I am NOT Christian! In my podunk redneck town that is seriously "weird". Finding out I identify most with Buddhism gets some serious odd looks, awkward silences, and often blessings to save my soul. It also suprises people that I was a vegan for over 14 years and converted to vegetarianism for another 3. I gave it up shortly after my Celiac's diagnoses since I live in the middle of nowhere and don't have many food choices. (I hate that I eat meat and get seriously worked up about it every now and again). People are surprised to know that I have a Masters degree and more so surprised that I have a Classical History degree in addition to all my sciency-stuff. I love European Symphonic Metal and could not name one Lady Gaga song. That really freaks people out! I also eat rice and miso soup for breakfast. I am, all in all, a strange girl by the accepted societal norms of my location. So who else watched Babylon 5? I didn't. I should... If you had to decide what your stripper name was, what would it be? Satan 16th by the rules...I would rather go by Lacey Ponts. Sooooo Witchees, have you ever taken that particular personality test? If so, are you an Analytical, a Driver, an Expressive or an Amiable? I'm a driver based on the test. I don't agree though. I believe that majority of us have many sides to our personalities that show depending on situations. I'm a different person in a school based setting than I am at home. (For one, I wear pants at school! ) My personality is far to unique and multidimensional to fit into a predetermined box, as far as I'm concerned. Is anyone else afraid of or creepy out by dummies/puppets/Muppets/etc? Other things you're squicked/freaked by that's best left by the wayside? I'm not a fan of dummies, but I got over my fear years ago. what level of contact were you hoping for? I'm happy with whatever my witch is comfortable with! I love hearing from her! She rocks my socks! Your favorite restaurant or type of food to eat out. Would you use a restaurant.com voucher? Groupon? dangerous for me with my disease, so I pass. Are there any local museums/attractions you keep never getting around to going to? HAHAAH! Maybe a trip up to "The Walmart". :lol: Yeah, no. I do want to really go to Animal Kingdom at Disney (about 35 minutes away). I was there last weekend but the park was closed and we were confined to the rides area. I wanna see the animals! JONES SODA CO has LE soda packs for The Guild, Buffy, D&D, So Cute, etc. Would you be interested in these, Witchee? I don't really drink soda. Cute idea though. It'sBanned Books Week! Are there any books on the list you'd be interested in checking out? Brave New World is one of my all time favorites!! I have yet to read Hunger Games. I refuse to touch Twilight. Poor writing makes me angry. I have just been enlightened to THESE. Are these flavors relevant to your interests? I've never tried Tokyo Milk, but I'm in love! What kind of purse do you prefer? Leather, cloth? over the shoulder or crossbody, or something that can do either? Do you like bold bright prints with fun things, or monochrome, solid colours? julep maven monthly boxes:No thanks. I can't figure out nail polish. Like commercial socks?Yup! What kind of bear is best?Root Beer! Is anyone interested in reading The Night Circus?Yes Hershey's Pumpkin Spice kisses?No thanks. I have a not-so-secret love for The Broship of the Rings. Are there any prints from her store you'd like?No thanks. Who here likes Stephanie Pui-Min Law's artwork?will look it up later. Do you drink wine?Not really. I prefer cider. Is it just me who is nervous at revealing herself to her witchee, and finding out who her witch is?!Not at all! I'm excited! Witches, did you lament NOT getting one of the condom case/imp cases that got released with the courtesan series???Nope 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? Ugh, no thanks.
  9. When I saw people responding to ecard questions in the thread I realized you probably didn't see my answer since I replied to the ecard! I'll answer future questions in here. Pasted: Hello! You totally made me *squee* with delight today, which is appreciated since I am literally sitting in a fermenting sewer. I'm sorta gonna marry Tim Curry, and David Bowie, and Prince, and a few others....I'm a bit of a imaginary slut! I do have a VCR, I think. I'm not sure if it works, I haven't had any reason to use it in a while. I can check when I get home though! Thank you so much for brightening my smelly day! - Stefanie
  10. What strange misc. items would you love to receive that you just haven't gotten for yourself?: I don't think it's strange, but I'm dying for a tart warmer. I also need a new Ingenuitea tea brewer since mine is all nasty from permanent tannins. 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 find this question terrifying! Please no! 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. It's the only stuff I use. I prefer twist tube because I am lazy and things that resemble makeup scare me. I have Burts Bees Pomegranate in my purse right now. I'm pretty open as long as there are no wheat products and it's not stinky. No color either please. A slight tint is ok, but if it feels like makeup, I probably won't use it. I just like ot feel like my lips are moisturized. -How do you feel about getting art supplies in general? (copic markers, watercolor, brushes, paint, sketchbooks etc.) No thank you. I look at art, I don't "do" art. I would probably make those poor art supplies cry! Markers have been known to run away or commit markercide rather than live with me. True story. (I deleted the other art supply questions since this sums it up!) -How do you feel about Threadless tshirts? :lol: I seriously thought these were actual shirts made without threads!! I was so confused and intrigued by how that would be possible! I didn't really look at to many, but I didn't see anything that jumped out right away. 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? Honestly, I would buy $20 worth of Symphony bars and 3 Musketeers. If it is around Christmas time, different story. I will buy everything with a snowman on it in the entire store. Seriously. I do that every year. Darling Witchee, would you enjoy farmer's market pickled veggies (green beans, garlic, asparagus, etc) or fresh canned peaches or something of that nature?YES! Canned would be best since anything fresh would get cooked in the box in the disgusting temperatures where I live. Do you prefer color or white photographs? Nature or abstract? At this moment, I would prefer nature in color. I'm feeling very "naturist" right now. I do love black and white though. I tend to go more for surreal than abstract. would you be interested in something like this? https://lostcrates.com/how-it-works That actually looks pretty awesome! Amigurumi, yes or no?Yes!! I would especially love a pattern that is explained well! I want to be able to make those! I have a question! What are some of your favorite paintings? (famous or undiscovered?) Feel free to link to examples! Dali, Van Gogh, Glenn Barr, and Edvard Munch are my favorite artists. Swams Reflecting Elephants is one of my all time favorites. I also love Church at Auvers. I'm really into Asian motifs in art right now, so anything like that as well. If you could have an image painted for you - sky is the limit - what would it be? A family portrait with my dogs, with Moose actually sitting still and looking cute. He would probably be wearing Christmas moose ears. Dante would be dressed like an elf. I would die for such a painting! (I'm sooooo lame!!!) Name your 3 favorite scents for candles I have too many favorites to pick just three, but my favorite category of scents are "spicy/harvest/fall", "christmas", and "dark fruit" Name your 3 favorite types/flavors of tea Roasted (green tea that is roasted in these giant ovens in Japan ), Genmaicha, Jing Mai 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. Meh. I wear makeup 3-4 times a year, at most. It's usually not things that require brushes either (since I don't really know how to use them). My "makeup routine" is tinted chapstick and mascara. Eyeshadow if I am feeling wild and crazy! Do you like Legos? Especially mini-fig key chains, Lego block keychains, small Lego sets, etc? I haven't played with Legos is FOREVER! I would totally enjoy it though! 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. Bottle of Dee and Crowley. Are there any characters that you love or identify with? I identify with Danica Maupoissant in terms of her absolute devotion to her goal and inability to let anything interfere. I also totally related to Temperance Brennen from Bones. My entire family seriously swears that her character was based on me! I am in love with Daemon Sadi, David Bowie, Prince, Tim Curry, and Scarlett Johansson. A question! If you are crafty, what's your personal art style? I'm not talking just about what art you like to look at, but what kind of art do you like creating? Do you have a "process" while you're creating beauty? I crochet. I don't really consider it art. I consider it something to keep my neuroses under control! I like to keep my hands busy while watching tv or something. I am incapable of relaxing! Are there any Arcana Weenies that you MUST HAVE? I'm interested in the soaps. Sleepy Hallow especially sounds lovely. I probably won't actually order though. So what say you? IS an "unexpected" visit/in-person witching OK? I live in the middle of nowhere, so I would not expect anyone to come here. I have a full time job and classes with my dogs so I'm most often not home. I would need a little time to prepare, especially since I have a Moose of a dog that would likely scare the crap out of anyone. Cthulhu: yay or nay? Yay! Especially the awesome stuffed great old one!! Is there something that you wish you could do, but you keep putting it off? Take classical singing lessons, learn to play the cello, learn to crochet those amiguri things, remember all that anatomy and physiology stuff I haven't looked at in ages! (Need to start preparing for Gross Anatomy but have been lazy!) Put your current mp3player (I am the anti-apple, so no ipod ), winamp playlist, what have you, on shuffle, list the first 10 songs: 1)Sins of Thy Beloved - Until the Dark 2)The Cure - Cut Here 3)Ayreon - New Born Race 4) Andrea Bocelli - Leoncavallo: La Boheme - Musetta 5)Tool - Forty Six & 2 6)Tristania - Aphelion 7)Tori Amos - China 8)Fiona Apple - Criminal 9)Tool - Jimmy 10)The Cure - Lovecats 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 Waiting on my decants to finalize, but looks like a bottle of Sonnet D'automne, Golden Apple of the Sun, maybe Black Apple of Saturn (if it works), and Hygeia. Do you have any interest in rocks? Not like, polished colorful stones.. but like... rocks. With geologic significance! Like crystals? I like those. 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? Light and drapey since it's so hot here. I like darker jewel tones and black. 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. Page 100 has pictures of my babies! Do you like/own/wear/want fairy wings or something of the like? No thank you. How do you feel about terrariums? I don't really feel anything about them. What's your favorite horror movie? Opera If your witch was the practical type and wanted to include one or more of your everyday essentials, what would those include? I'm talking about the bath products, lotions, face lotions, teas, food, etc that you really use every day. I use a HoG soap or scrub and lotion, Cocoa pink Princess Poo shampoo and Shine + conditioner, St Ives apricot scrub, alba face moisturizer, and Arm and Hammer Naturals deodorant every day. I'm looking for a new wheat-free shampoo and paraben and silicon free conditioner. If you have a suggestion or wanted to send a sample I would love that! I also need a new facial moisturizer since I'm not in love with Alba, but everything I've tried (from Lush, specialty stores, etc) has not liked my skin. I have mountains of tea so I am good on that front. I tend to eat peanut butter and jam on gluten free crackers for breakfast at work everyday since my tummy won't let me eat first thing in the morning so jam would be great. Jane Austen .. Yay or Nay? YES!!! 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? My favorite thing ever is the preface to the Picture of Dorian Gray "All Art is Quite Useless". I would prefer a book, poem, or play quote since I'm not really into the 'Hang in there" Kitty cat poster things. I love Shakespeare, Poe, Jane Austen, and all sorts of "older" literature. Anything like that would be rockin! 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? Story and characters are what drag me in. The graphics are not nearly as important. I want to care about the characters, empathize with them. Otherwise, it's not very good in my opinion. If you could choose a Smack, what would it have in it? Lemon Meringue, Pomegranate Fig, Spice Trade, Vanilla Bean if you could have a salon scent made, based on any artwork(s) what would it be? Probably on Waterhouse's Siren or Miranda. I would expect Siren to be dark and resiny, with aquatic notes, and musk for sensuality. 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'm very much a scientist, but since that is my job, it's not what i want to do while "relaxing". I do love to crochet though. What's 'your' song/your theme song? As my best friend says : Devil's Child! What would be your superpower? Telepathy, telekinetics, ability to be young forever (and grant that to whom I chose, like a vampire), and ability to make money appear! Witchee, would you like a gently used BPAL tshirt? Oh yes!! 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'm good with anything as long as it's gluten free. Oats and granola would have to be certified gluten free or I could get very sick. I especially love dried figs and cranberries. Do you like charm bracelets? If you had a bracelet, what sort of charms would you want on it? Favorite hobbies, symbols, whatever? I couldn't really wear it often because of my job and since I'm lazy too, I would probably never put it on while home. =p 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? No really. It's just one more thing for my cats to try to eat. 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? Googling did not give me any help to figure out what this is asking. Colors! What are your favorite colors and what colors do you not like? Pictures and links, people! I love Red, Black, Dark Blue, darker greens. I HATE pastels and yellow. What is your favorite word? Lamentable What are the feelings on arm warmers? Color, style, texture, length? I live in Florida. 'Nough said. Do you like tarts? tealights? jar candles? votives? Tarts and jars are first, tealights second. I like votives, but not as much. What's your favorite flavor? Sour, sweet, bitter, salty? SALTY!!! Sour is a close second. So, are there any online gaming witchees who covet purchasable in-game items or other gamer-y stuff? (yup, geek question) I am clean! *twitch* Anyone doing anything cool for Mabon (or the start of fall, if you aren't pagan? It's not really something I celebrate since Florida doesn't really have seasons. Celebrating Autumn when it's 97 degrees out seems almost patronizing. What is your favorite coffee blend at Starbucks? If you don't have one, what is your favorite roast of coffee? HATE starbucks. I am Anti-Starbucks. All their coffee tastes burnt! I do like the Dunkin Donuts Original Roast coffee. Is there anything you'd like from the Mütter Museum Store? I would love a hand in a jar! I just noticed that Cocoa Pink has 5 ml Perfume Atomizers. Yay or nay? Scents you would like? Scents you would NOT like? I prefer BPAL for my perfume needs, I do like Boo Boo Lemon Noel though.

  12. 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?Cook at home!!! I'm always interested in exotic cookbooks. I am especially into Japanese and Indian cuisine right now. I'm looking for a good French book as well. I'm pretty much set on utensils. I have way more than is necessary! The only thing I really want at this point is a cooling rack for my baked goods. New question: How do you feel about maple syrup? I hate the store stuff. I would be willing to try real maple syrup. 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) The link wouldn't work for me, but I think the idea is wonderful! Do you like Star Wars? Original Trilogy? Prequels? Spin-offs? Favorite characters? Only with all of my being!!!! Darth Reven, Mara Jade, Naga Sadow, and Darth Vader. 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)- I find it very icky. 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. I don't have restrictions at work so I'm game for anything! Doctor Who? Yay or nay? (please don't make me cry by saying nay) YAY!!! 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? YAY!!! Anyone love Buffy/Angel? Not Angel, but I loved the Buffy series. Spike was my favorite! How would you feel about gummies? Like, gummy bears? Gummy werewolves? Gummy vampires? Gummies = WIN especially sour ones! (just need to be gluten free) How would you feel about a totally original Gela-skin for your laptop/iPod/phone? Stickers? Decals? Epic! If I start PA school in January, I will need a new laptop and I will need to make it awesome! 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 LOVE it all!!! Are your ears pierced, Witchee? Do you have any other piercings? Would you like to receive any items of jewelry for these piercings? My ears are pierced, but I don't change my earrings ever. The ones I wear are sentimental. How do you all feel about Whoopie Pies? What in the world is a Woopie pie? Are you looking for a certain kind of DVDs to spruce up your collection right now? The only one I am looking for is HP and Deathly Hallows Part 1. Does anyone like postcards? Is anyone willing to be a Nacho witch for postcards? Yes and yes! Anyone going to see any good concerts this fall? Kamelot with Simone Simmons next week! Do you like Star Trek? Original TV series, films, spinoff series, etc? Favorite characters? I like it, but not nearly as much as I love Star Wars. 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 live in tshirts! I wear a large in babydoll sizes and a medium in standard. (I'm heavy in the boob area so I need some material there!)I tend to wear band shirts, anime characters, and general kid stuff (harry potter, etc). I also LOVE Jinx tees and I have many "geek" tees. I would LOVE one designed by me witch! That would rock! How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc....LOVE! Has anyone else heard of or does anyone else love Glamourkin? Never heard of it. Googling now! If you had an international witch, is there anything you would like from the UK? (Or Australia, Belgium, France any other country we have witches from.Yes!!! postcards!!!!! Also pictures of the area would be wonderful and I would love to frame! Also, any cheesy touristy things (like I <3 Paris plastic Eiffel Towers) are awesome! SOCK PREFERENCES?I like below ankle socks since I have thick calves (14 years of dancing + gymnastics) and the higher socks tend to look funny on me or cut off my circulation. I like rainbows and silly characters but most of all I like Asian theme things like dragons and cheery blossoms. Would you like/wear a pair of these? http://www.ravelry.c...rary/yoga-socks If so, what color?I like jewel tones, like an emerald green would be awesome! Is there anyone here who likes toe socks? You know, those socks with a place for each toe? YES!!!!
  13. This was a question before, but does anyone here like stones? Just pretty polished stones for use in whatever purposes? I like the smooth ones. I find it comforting to hold and rub with my finger. Would you like to receive e-books? And if so, in what format? YES!!!!!!!!! Format doesn't matter since I have a program that can convert them for my Nook. 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? My kids are of the canine variety. 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!) Not really. I'm not very fashionable and I cannot see myself actually moving my wallet to multiple purses. I fail at girldom. Are there are patterns, motifs, etc that you especially like? n/a Witchee, would you be interested in having a special tea cup/coffee mug/glass to drink out of? OMG YES! Tea is just about my favorite thing EVER so a special cup/mug/glass would make me feel all happy every time I used it! 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'm a purest and prefer loose tea. I'm interested in tasting anything that you think is yummy, but loose is my favorite. I've never tried compressed and find it very intriguing. How would you feel about kitchen towels and other similar household objects, if they are pretty or a souvenir? I love household items! I especially love things with chubby chefs or wine motifs. How did you dress up for your last party or compulsory-formal-dress occasion? I wore a wedding dress Can you sum yourself (whether it be personality, life's goals, ethics, whatever) in 10 words or less? A neurotic, geeky, obsessive, eclectic, soon to be PA How about little bottles of booze? Ya wanna? What kind? I don't actually really drink. I do about 10 hard apple ciders a year! 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.) YES AND YES, but sadly no since I live in a sauna. Also, what about mochi? Love it, hate it, baffled by it? I loved mochi when I was in Japan. They actually cut the jelly in front of you and toss it in the powder flavor stuff. Yum. Also MOCHI CREAM!!!! I don't really know about manufactured mochi. Some kinds in Japan were yummy, but I slightly fear Americanized versions. If you think it's good, I would like to try! Anything from the update ya'll are liking? BPTP UPDATE Not really. I don't take baths and I doubt I would use hair oil. I do want to try the Snow, Glass, Apples soap and maybe the STREUOBSTWIESE soap. Does anyone like kimchi? I like it well enough. I haven't found a prepared variety that I like as much and the made at home kind. Would you be interested in a sample box(from somewhere like Birchbox or loosebutton)? I had to google both. Makeup scares me a little. I would be willing to try as long as it's nothing too complicated or scary. Eyelash curlers are probably some of the freakiest things ever... You have to place a Lab and Trading Post order. Right fuckin' now. No spending limits. What do you buy? Halloween 2011: Sonnet Dautomne - 5ml The Black Apple of Saturn - 5ml The Golden Apple of the Sun - 5ml The Salon: Hygeia - 5ml Perversion - 5ml Dee - 5ml Phoenix Steamworks: the Antikythera Mechanism 5ml The Neil Gaiman Collection: Mr Ibis The Neil Gaiman Collection: Mr Nancy Good Omens: Crowley 5ml Good Omens: Famine - 5ml 51 - 5ml Baghdad - 5ml Florence - 5ml Glasgow - 5ml Kathmandu - 5ml Morocco - 5ml Prague - 5ml Shanghai - 5ml Tombstone - 5ml Halloween 2011: A Nocturnal Reverie - 5ml Halloween 2011: Autumn Cider - 5ml Halloween 2011: Devils Night 2011 - 5ml Halloween 2011: La Calavera Catarina - 5ml Neil Gaiman Scent Locket: the Goldfish Pool Halloween Tee - Babydoll V Neck A Little Lunacy: Blood Moon Tee - Babydoll Crew Neck Sockfeetz: Purple, Red and Black Stripes Paintbox Soapworks - anything you're interested in, in general or from the latest update? I've never tried them, but the Indian Summer soap and sorbetto emulsion, Avast soap, Silken Peony lotion and sorbetto, Gingermilk soap and lotion, and Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh soap all sound AMAZING! Do you guys have any sports that you follow obsessively? How about favorite teams and/or athletes Nope How do you feel about notebooks/journals/stationery? Anything you need or particularly like? I don't think I would really use it for anything purposeful. Does confetti/glitter make you angry or fill you with glee? It freaks me out. I am totally afraid of glitter. I think it's evil! Fabulous witches and witchees, perhaps you all could note of you've received MeiLin's goodies? Or if you want? I don't really understand the question! I tried to google and found nothing. 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? LOVE! I especially want the Microbes from ThinkGeek! how interested would you be on somewhat personalized bottle cap labels? Like these that I did? When you're miserably sick (*sniffle, cough!*) what are the things that comfort you the most? Peanut butter and jelly, my bed, and my Dante. What constitutes ultimate luxury to you? (go crazy!) All stainless steel appliances in my kitchen. A double oven. Butcher block countertops. A wine fridge, gas range with 5 burners and the grill portion, wood cabinets, the Samsung refridgerator with the set temperature drawer. *drools* I can't wait to buy a house and make my dream kitchen! What do you really NOT want? Glitter. Anything with gluten. interested in anything from Lush? Not really. All the products I loved either changed or were discontinued. I'm over Lush at this point. Do you blog? Would you like a header for your blog, a layout, etc? I don't have a blog. Would you be interested in a handmade bookmark? YES! 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? If it was gluten free, absolutely! How would you feel about receiving a Groupon deal for something in your local area? If there is anything you WOULDN'T like, mention that also. I think one for like a wine tasting or something would be awesome. I don't really do anything sport related and it's hoenstly too hot out for most outdoor activities.
  14. That other blog got a bit long... Is anyone fond of programs like Adopt a Tree/Highway/Library/Manatee/Acre of Rainforest/etc? I would love a tree or animal. That would make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and I would totally frame a picture of it and look fondly at it often! What #1 actor, director, author and/or musician are you obsessed with? are you interested in anything from the Villainness Bad Apples update? Yes!!!! Discord soap! 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? They would love it! My kitties tend to not be too crazy about treats since they get chased away from the dogs! My puppy boys LOVE treats, but only stipulation is they must either be very small (one bite) or large enough so my Moose doesn't choke. (He tends to inhale food, rather than chew) Anything "big dog" friendly is fine. 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? Tried and will never get: Black Temple Burlesque Troop, Snake Charmer, Want to try and probably never will: WILF, Spanked Revisited, Storytime at Dark Delicacies 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? I already own many prints of most of my favorite artists, I am interested in anything with an Asian or Egyptian feel to it. I've been looking for a good cherry blossom print for a while. 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 really don't do makeup. I have some mascara which I break out on special occasions and that's about it. I'm pale with light freckles and dark brown hair and eyes. Do you like coffee or tea? Would you be interested in trying some different types? I love coffee and tea, but especially tea! I'm a bit of a tea snob, and prefer whole leaf, but am more than willing to try bags if you think they are yummy! 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) Night of Hunters by Tori Amos Are you going away for any part of this round? Yup! I'll be in Orlando for a work convention and trip to Animal Kingdom and Harry Potter World from September 23-25. I will be in Chicago for a weekend getaway October 21-23. If your witch were going somewhere on a vacation during the round, would you want a little souvenir? A postcard or cool little commemorative trinket would be awesome! I also collect picture frames from everywhere we go and a small frame would be awesome in my collection! Do you enjoy any outdoor activities? Do you have a favorite form of "exercise"? (keep it clean, all!) I love going hiking with my dogs in the wintertime. Summers in Florida don't really allow for much outside time since heatstroke happens so quickly and is so dangerous. When the weather is nice we do a lot walking and jogging with the boys. I also rollerblade with Dante (not with Moose...he tries to attack the rollerblades ) I exercise inside. I do some things with my ball at home. I have a gym membership but rarely go. I do want to start getting into yoga, but I just haven't yet. I did buy a mat though! Would you like to receive a mix-CD from your Witch? Yes!!!! Any witchee's with a ravelry account have any favourited patterns that cost money that would be a welcome gift? Heh, probably! I have tons of favorited patterns I there. I really need to learn to crochet faster and start getting though them! Do you work/study at a desk and enjoy interesting or cute office supplies? Between my candles, medical books, medical models, and random junk, I really don't need anymore clutter on my desk. What I need is some sort of organizer to arrange my shit! Witchee, are you a fan of musicals? If so, which ones? Les Mis, Wicked, Chicago, Cabaret, are just a few of my favorites. I also love opera. I am fond of the thrift. Do you mind lightly used goods? Please be specific!I don't mind used goods at all! The used bookstore near me is one of my favorite places! Would a gift or a postcard from Disneyland make you squee with delight or puke into your mail box? ZOMG YES! I would do ANYTHING for something with Figment on it. I also love anything Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, or Sleeping Beauty (my absolute favs). Really anything Disney = WIN for me! Anything from Finding Nemo would make me *squee* too! what are your favorite types of Halloween candy? My favorites are Milk Duds, Snickers, and lollipops. I can't have anything with cookies like Twix or anything with malt like Milky Way. Anything else is good really! Do you prefer soap or shower gel? Please give examples of your favorite scents or brands. I prefer soap. I also love the bubbling scrubs from HoG, so anything similar would be great. The scents I like in bath products are very different than my perfume tastes. I really like Cocoa Pink's Boo Boo Lemon Noel, HoG Milkmaid, Hex, Zazz, Honeysuckle Lemon Curd. I really want to try HoG Haus Amber. I don't like overly sweet, more like hint of sweetness with something countering it. I like dark fruits a lot. How do you like your chocolate? For example with nuts, mint, peanut butter, caramel? Chocolate is my favorite food group! I especially love it with caramel, peanut butter, or nuts. Mint is not my favorite. My favorite is dark chocolate salted caramels! Beads! Do you use them? Would you want some? What sorts of beads do you like? I don't actually use them for anything. And another question; anyone like anything in particular from Think Geek? Other than everything? Since I'm an infectious disease person, the plush microbes are adorable! I especially love Chagas Disease (American Trypanosomiasis) and Sleeping Sickness (African Tryanosomiasis) since tryp. are my specialty! (Sleeping sickness is so cute with it's undulating membrane!!!)I'm also totally in love with the Weighted Companion Cube plush! The stuffed Sushi pals are adorable too! I want the Plush Microbe Holiday Ornament Set more than anything though! Sooooo freakin cute! I also am dying for Holiday Vader!!! I also wants the Metal Star Wars Movie Posters. Wow..this question makes me look like an obnoxious little kid! Sorry =(
  15. xscpx


    Who's into nail polish? What colors/brands? This is going to sound terrible, but I suck at being a girl. I don't even know how to do nail polish. I guess I would be interested in trying out some. I could probably get it on my toes without making too big a mess!! I would probably want some crazyass color like sparkly purple or something! Candles? I am hopelessly addicted. Candles, tarts, room sprays, anything to make my area smell yummy. I especially like Autumn and Christmas scents, especially cookie/baked good ones. Current favorites are YC Mistletoe and Figs, Christmas Cookie, Autumn Wreath, Spiced Pumpkin, etc. I also like freshish scents and I am currently obsession over a tart of YC Pink Sands which smells exactly like Skytyping With Chemtrails!!! Do you like knitted goodies? If so, what would you like and what colors? LOVE! The idea of someone making me something makes my heart happy!! It doesn't matter what it is, although I always wanted one of those cute little crocheted animals and I have been too afraid to attempt them myself! Would you be interested in homemade edibles that are NOT sweets? Any specifics YES!!! Anything gluten free would be well loved! I freakin love food! I would be especially interested in homemade preserves and jams and cool things like pickles. I love pickles! What GC do you live in mortal terror of the lab discontinuing, but never get around to buying? Dee. I love it so. Have used up countless imps. It's my go-to slather, yet I just have never gotten around to buying a bottle. Weird actually...I would be heartbroken if it were discontinued. Is there a quote (or lyric or part of a poem) that really resonates with you or is your favorite? There are quite a few. I will answer this in a separate, non-at-work blog so I can really put some thought into it. Dream candle? Scent, color, type (tealight, votive, pillar, jar, etc.), throw... I like strong scents since I have a house full of animals and takes good throw to be noticed!! I like all candles, but I do not use pillars or anything not contained. It's not safe with all my fuzzies. Social Media I'm on facebook. You can find me from my name. I have cool Japan and fuzzy babies pictures on there! Yo, yarnies! Do you Ravelry? If so, who are you over thar? Hells to the yeah!!! I believe I am also xscpx on there! I get all my patterns from Ravelry! There is also a very cute pic of my pup Dante in the sweater I made him on there! Favorite animal? Leopards, tigers, hippos, moose, panthers. I cannot pick just one! What am I going to be for Halloween? Sleeping!! How do you feel about nick-knacks? What traditions (family, holiday, or otherwise) are important to you? Christmas decorating is very important to me. I had many of my mother's decorations from when I was growing up. It was always something I looked forward to as a kid. I take it even more seriously now since my husband tends to get very down around Christmas. (It's very close to the anniversary of his best friend's death) I also follow many family traditions when it comes to method of cooking, but also specific dishes for certain days. Do you like going to the movies? I love going to the movies. Even if the movie sucks, I love the experience of it. We often go to the 21+ theatre with private couches and they serve cocktails and food. It's my favorite thing to do for "date night". What are your favorite restaurants? With my Celiac's disease, eating out is a bit difficult. I do really like this little Thai place near where I live. I also enjoy Bonefish Grill (they have a gluten free brownie sundae!!!) and Olive Garden (gluten free pasta!!). We are taking a trip to Chicago in October for the weekend to eat at some awesome restaurants! I'm sure they will be favorites! My all time favorite restaurant ever is this TonKatsu place in the Kyoto Station in Kyoto, Japan. I think I ate there 3 times in the 5 days I was there! I will probably measure all food up against that place for the rest of my life. Until I go to Europe at least! Do you play any video games? I was addicted to World of Warcraft for a long time, but I have been clean for 4 years now! I'm playing Dragon Age intermittently now just for something to do (I've already beaten it) and impatiently waiting for the new Star Wars Old Republic MMO to come out! I was also waiting for Diablo III but I have since given up. Do you like any anime? Blood+, Twelve Kingdoms, Scrapped Princess, and Full Metal Alchemist are my favorites. I also love Neon Genesis Evangelion, Hand Maid May, Tenjou Tenge, Mnemosyne, and a whole bunch of others! Do you have an E-reader/iPad/something similar that you need a cover/case for? I have one, but I already have a nice cover for it. 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? With the job I have I cannot really wear much jewelery. I'm pretty low maintenance too. I've had the same earrings in for years! How would you like to receive some of your Witch's favorite recipes, tailored to your likes/dietary restrictions? And specific wants? That would be awesome! Especially if she knows any gluten free baked goods! 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 have a craft box, but have been meaning to get a pretty, wooden box or something like that. Muppets: yea or nay?I love the Labyrinth, but would not like to have muppets in my house! Do you have an affinity for Calvin and Hobbes, Peanuts, The Far Side, and other comic strips? If so, which is your favorite? I don't think I've read most of those. I'm not really into comic strips. Favorite Mythological Creature?: Do you like hair things barrettes, headbands, flowersI don't have any, but I might be interested in trying some! I don't know about flowers though. I'm not really a "flower" sort of girl! Expanding on the hair question - does anyone like those flower clips for the hair that are big right now??I have no idea what this is referring to...I suck at girlness. Do you like to burn incense? If so, what are your favorite kinds...sticks? cones? resins? What are your favorite scents? I do. I really like nag champa, but am open to everything. I like sticks and cones but have never tried resins! - Harry Potter - a fan? If so, what house are you? Slytherin bitches! Sirius and I are...involved. It's been a bit difficult lately, with him being dead and all, but we make it work. - If you were to receive a gift card, what places would you like to get one from? Target is probably where I shop the most. Petsmart and PetSupermarket are close seconds. TJ Maxx would be cool too! Is there a particular myth/folktale/legend/fairytale/godstory that you're drawn to? This answer also needs more time than I can do at work! Will answer later! If you RP, tabletop, forum, or otherwise... Do you have any original characters you'd like to see art of? If so, please give information! Even if it's a link to a web page or a profile or picture! I sadly have not participated in RP in years. I miss it and that actually sounds like a great idea to get back into it on a forum. If you could see anything, what would it be? Can be a person, an event, a landmark or monument, an object, etc. And it doesn't have to be on this planet, or in this time period, or in this reality!This is too much! So many ideas! I will keep to ancient things since I covered where I want to go in the questionnaire. I would totally want to hang out with Caligula, have drinks with Perikles, have a three-some with Marc Antony and Cleopatra . I want to see the pyramids now but also when they were built. I want to study in the Library of Alexandria when it was created. I want to see the Parthenon when it was finished, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Collassus at Rhodes, Colosseum when it was being used, the Agora in 5th century Athens, the Elusinian Mysteries, and thousand more things! (Classical History major much?! ) I also want to see a dragon, fairy, nymph, and satyr. When you are having a really rough day, what do you like to do/have to make it a little brighter? Coming home to my boys, Moose and Dante, makes any day better! Puppy kisses are the key to happiness! What are your thoughts on comics? Any you like? Any you have been wanting to try? Favorite characters?I liked Chastity and a few others. I've always wanted to read the Dawn ones. I'd be interested in anything with a strong female lead, especially if something like vampires are involved! Are you musical? Do you play an instrument, and if so, what? If not, what do you wish you could play or do? I wish! I always wanted to play the cello and take classical singing lessons. My parents wouldn't let me as a kid, and I haven't found the time or money yet as an adult. I love opera so much and want to learn to sing one day! I will learn to play Bach's Cello Suite 5 Prelude and his Arioso on cello at some point in my life. If you want to listen. 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 want to. Everything I've tried to grow has wound up getting cooked in this sauna of a state that I live in. The basil I grew did smell fabulous when it got sauteed by the sun though! I would be interested if you know of something that could withstand extreme heat, extreme dryness, followed by monsoon rains. Do you decorate for Halloween? Is your decorating taste elegant, kitschy and fun, or scary? I don't decorate for Halloween. I've always wanted to decorate for Autumn, but since we don't have Autumn in Florida, it seems silly to do so! (It's 90 degrees until like the end of November) I start decorating for Christmas at Thanksgiving though!
