If so, please provide your favourite ingredients, info on how you like to cook/store and use food, and any intolerances - unless all of these are in your questionnaire, or you don't like the idea. (I'm not saying I'd definitely do this, unless someone is keen, and it wouldn't be the only gift). I guess for other witches this might include something like a knitting pattern - not my thing but would you like that? Or indeed would you like a picture created for you (if so what kind) or a story written? (sorry if this feels a bit Spanish Inquisition!)

Thank God all my wee ones are grown! Do you read literature/culture blogs or websites of any kind? I'm thinking about anything that would help a putative witch to get a sense of what your current tastes in books, movies, games, genres, approaches to culture and literature and so forth are No How do you feel about traditional picnics (namely the intimate table for two variety)? Old-fashioned basket or something more utilitarian (cooler/insulated bag)? I like picnics and i am of the cooler variety If you were put in a room with 100 random other people the same age and sex as you, from your country, in what way do you think you would be different from the average?

    Switch witch help 2012

    Are there any existing Weenies that you have your eye on, but haven't gotten around to getting? No I joined a decant circle, thanks. What is your holy grail "I'd kill to just have one drop in an imp" bpal scent? I know everyone probably says this but I would love to have one drop of Yvaine  Hey Witchee! I want to send you a delivery. It could be cupcakes from a local bakery, it could be a singing hugging bear-a-gram, it could be a bouquet of flowers. But it will be something that you need to be there to receive. a) Are you OK with "special deliveries"? *waggles eyebrows* Absolutely Is the address in your questionnaire the best place to reach you for said deliveries? Yes c) If the delivery requires a phone number (as say, some florists do) would you be OK with that information being tracked down by your Witch or asked of you anonymously? (970) 216-8642  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? Books, shawls, cd’s, coasters, cool or retro serving dishes (glass or ceramic), wine glasses or martini glasses are all great. I would not like shoes or clothes as I have a hard time finding things I really like to begin with, I actually HATE clothes shopping for myself  and I have small feet that are very particular in regards to what fits them. 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? No thank you. Do you have any Fall or Halloween traditions? I love to decorate for fall and especially Halloween, I love unusual decorations and I lean towards the more spooky classy rather than the kitschy. Ninjas or Pirates? Aye Matey, I be taking all your Pirate booty! 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? No thank you. 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. I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE wild rice and I don’t think I have ever had real maple syrup in my life which is crazy I know, 0.O 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? As long as there is no celery in it YES! How would you feel about a taste of (insert witch location here) box? I am not sure I understand this question. 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? Bat’s are cool but no thank you. 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? YES! CD please. I am a great lover of music except for screamo or rap >;< 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? EVERTHING! Flowers to all the veggies. I'm about to be near a Lush store next week, is there anything you might like from there? No thank you. Songs that you keep meaning to buy but never get round to it? Oh geez that’s a hard one, I am pretty cool with anything except what I stated above. Movies that you love but forgot to put in your questionnaire? I don’t think so Any favorite Bath & Body Works scents/products? No thanks Haus of Gloi is offering custom perfumes - would you like one? What would your ideal blend be? I am afraid I am not familiar with their products so probably not. Are there any if MeiLin's books (e-book or print) you'd be interested in? I am not familiar with her work but am game for something new Witchee, will you be gone from your normal mailing address at any point during the round? NOPE! 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? My most favorite Disney Princess is The Little Mermaid but my most favorite Villain is Maleficent, so yes whatever you choose would be awesome! Dear witchee, would you, could you use an electric candle warmer? I’m talking something like this. No thank you all my kids are grown and I love real flames Do you lust after some new socks/tights? socks are always appreciated, I have small feet size 6 Would you be interested in BPTP CANDY? Again I am not sure what this means  Custom-made pottery? Yea or nay? Coffee mugs, rustic or more elegant? A set of bowls? Soap dish? Bird feeder? Something altogether different? And lastly, good colors for glazes? Handmade pottery or ceramics are very true to my heart as I used to do A LOT!!! Unique is great , rustic elegant it does not matter, I love glazes that are VERY, VERY different, mix your own colors I will say all purples, grey, black, white and cobalt or true red (blue base) are my favorite. Mistakes; bring em on baby!!! Do you have a forum buddy? Someone who knows you and/or your tastes well enough to answer questions on your behalf? Yes the lovely Alethia and the Outstanding Stellans and of course Miss Glambie. If you are on Livejournal, would you appreciate LJ stuff like paid time, custom userheads, stuff like that? If you are NOT on LJ but are on other sites that have similar paid-for services (Flickr, for example?) would you, and what are those sites/etc? No thank you A question, witchees: if you are into tarot, what is your favorite card? I would love to learn Tarot, so teach me! And another question: would you like your own set of handmade rune stones or worry stones? YES< YES< YES I had a very good friend who did runes for me and I would love my own set. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cider, or none of the above? coffee; the stronger the better, TEA; Earl gray with lavender, hot chocolate dark, cider, yes! Gum, hard candy, soft candy, or none of the above? Life Savers gummies Whooo Hooo!!! Or those fruit chews shaped like the fruit. Pretty much all the softies including black licorice. Loose tea or tea bags? Do you need anything for your loose tea? (Filters, presses, etc.) I am in love with Revolution tea they have the best flow through infuser bags I have ever used. Do you do Goodreads or LibraryThing or a site like that? If so, can I see your to-read list, please? I have a nook tablet but as far as a list I am pretty picky, I change my mind from day to day. Zombies; Yay or Nay? Nope 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? Ha ha, 1 toy poodle 10 lbs. 1 standard poodle 80 lbs. and 3 cats! We are an animal loving home and yes they love ALL THE THINGS! If you have kids, what are they into? Two still at home a girl 21 yrs. old and a boy 19 yrs. old. So unless it’s nail polish or muscle mags probably not but thanks. How do you feel about wearable knitted lace? Shawls, wraps, and the like? Yes but PLESASE polyester as I am allergic to wool  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? Oh Yes VERY cool! I live in Japan. Anything you would be interested in from there? A Japanese print , it would not matter what it was of, I really love that style of art work. Candy corn? No WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH YOUR ASS OFF!!! movies, comedians, black humor, your partner, a comic strip? what? I always take time in my day to see things a little different so all those things and many more make smile and laugh my ass off. 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? My cork wedgies with the black leather straps across the toes(toes painted a very vibrant pinky purple) my lilac colored shorts and my Calvin Kline tank top that is black, silver, grey and purple and of course some awesome jewelry!!!  ( rings, earrings, bracelet, watch, necklace, ankle bracelet,) ooh and my Fendi black prescription sunglasses and some Clinique Buttershine 414 Fresh Watermelon lipstick. And a very big smile!!! 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? Well it would depend on the season and what I would be wearing the outfit for, casual or business or evening. 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). A pre-paid 1 week stay at a cottage (on the beach) on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and 2 round trip tickets for me and my wonderful husband of 30 years to get there. This would be my most coveted wish as Donald works away from home for 4 to 7 weeks at a time and is only home for 2 weeks  Now back to reality lol, a really nice tea kettle, a unique big bowl or something artsy for my dining room table and a new purse preferably purple ,over the shoulder, roomy but not HUGE, and lots of pockets with silver toned metal accents.

Do you like cute, seasonal or fluffy PJ bottoms? Like they sell at Target, Old Navy (they have had cute Halloween ones!) If so, what size do you wear? I have 2 pair of Old Navy wide elastic black pj type pants that I adore and wear all the time but they are old and would love some more What kind of chocolate do you like?

Superman and Batman 4evah! Would my bunny like anything in particular from Lush? I do have access to an actual Lush store, and also wouldn't mind ordering retro items online. No thank you would you like a Paintbox from Paintbox Soapworks? If so, which scents? No thank you Do you have kids (or kid-like pets) who your fox may want to take into account, either in terms of a little extra goody or simple safety? Sure! I have 3 kitty babies and 2 poodle babies. Holiday DVDs? A Christmas Story! Tim Tams. Yay or nay? No thank you. My lovely fluffy Snow Bunny, would you like a bodyscrub made by me? If so, what scent(s) would you like, if you had to think along the lines of essential oils? And would you prefer sugar or salt? A dryer scrub or one that's more oily/moist? Yes! That sounds wonderful. Definitely sugar and moist with clean white flower scents. Ooo, or a salt moisty scrub with ocean like scents! But, and I know I’ve said it before, I do have a very severe nut allergy, so please no nut oils. Dear snow bunny, do you like candles? if yes, then what kind? scented (what scents), unscented, what colors, do you like them plain/painted on the outside/with decorations attached to the surface/sculpted? I loooove candles! My favorite brand is Yankee Candle, but homemade candles would be very much appreciated. Clean scents; like linen, cotton, ocean, white flowers, and lavender. For the colors: white and every shade of purple and blue you can imagine. Anything else I would love for my fox to decide! Also what do you think of little soaps? I know most people don't use soaps nowadays but I love the chocolate/vanilla/cocoa/butter/sugar combo scents that I see at beauty stores. No thank you. Socks! Slippers! Do you love them or not really wear them? If you love them, do you also love Sock Dreams? Socks for me. I just recently checked out Sock Dreams! Very cool. I would love a pair of those fuzzy socks with the aloe in them? I saw a pair at Ulta and my feet just about sprang out of their shoes! I have mostly stone tile in my house, so socks are a must in the cold months. Would you wear something like this if your Fox were to knit you one? If so, what color? http://www.ravelry.c...gap-tastic-cowl No thanks. Plain old scarves for me! Talk to me of coffee. Whole bean? Ground? Flavored, not flavored? Decaf, whole caff? Favorite roasters?

But my favorite is French Market Coffee and Chicory. Yay for tea! I prefer black and strong. (No flavors, please.) Who else here loves or would like to try Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics?

I Would love homemade goodies as long as they contain no nuts or nut oils,or mango or celery/celery seed or avocado- sheesh Miss Allergic of the century.

Unfortunately I have severe food allergies so no treats for me However if my Fox were to send something edible no worries as there are lots of people here who can eat anything! Penzey's - Yes I love to cook and am always looking for good spices, bay leaves, chili, lavendar, clove, good cinnamon and all salt. knitted goods - Yes to scarves,anything home made is always welcome. My most favorite color is anything in the purple family or wine colors1 If I had $20 to spend at Wallgreens I would buy some Old Wisconsin Turkey Sticks, some citrus Jelly Bellys and a book.

Meanwhile, I am asking all of you (and especially my witchee) what would you think of this (with a matching scarf) ? No thank you Would you be interested in regional jams, jellies, or other preserves? Not really, my allergies are too intense for me to trust most food I don’t make myself. What's your favorite classic fairytale, witches? Rapunzel What is something people are always surprised to learn about you? That I have 4 grown ass children and four (not so grown ass) grandchildren!

Is there any cheesy/non-cheesy Canadian stuff you'd be interested in? What? If you were to go here and create your very own chocolate bar, what might it have in it? Dark chocolate, lemon peel, salt, pepper, and orange peel. Say you stumbled into Camp Half Blood (or whatever the Roman camp ends up being named <bounces in anticipation>), which god claims you?

Only red (cab, shiraz, and malbec), though. No white. julep maven monthly boxes: No thanks. I have a question- 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?

Polar bears! New Question: Witches, did you lament NOT getting one of the condom case/imp cases that got released with the courtesan series??? I’m too new to even know what those are 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? No thank you Witchee, would you like anything from this particular Haunt update? (She'll be updating the preview with more items so maybe check back Friday morning/afternoon to see if there is anything else you'd like. The update is Friday night.)
