Ok, I am in the new Switch Witch round! Soo... I will continuously update this with new questions as people are asking them, so the person stalking me can know all there can possibly be to know about moi:
Favorite cartoons or animated films? i love Spongebob. An unhealthy amount of love, too. That show is HILARIOUS
Your take on the election? In other words, would you enjoy campaign related gifts, or prefer to stay neutral? Um, no campaign gifts please
Villians you sympathise with, or are interested in boinking? LOL!!! good question! I loved Stephen Dorff's bad vampire character in Blade. Him & his blonde vampire bitch were SO freaking hot!
Your stance on the all important peanut butter issue: crunchy? creamy? allergic? chocolate? maple? go directly to nuttella, do not pass go? Umm... no thanks on any unless it is in a Reeses
Who here likes to read historical fiction? If you do, what eras/people/countries intrigue you the most? No thank you!
What sort of colors do you currently wear? Do you want to branch outside that? What would you like to try? I cannot wear light colors because I am so pale, and not exactly thin. Aka: light colors are unflattering to me. Thank the universe for BLACK! LOL. I love dark blues, reds, purples, and black. And teal. LOVE teal.
About incense: do you like sticks or lose incense? Have you got one of those devices to burn lose incense over a bit of charcoal? No incense, please. Makes my eyes hurt
What's everyone's favorite fairytale and what are your favorite versions of it? Ummm... I am not sure...
So how many imps/decants is officially 'you have gone overboard and your Witchee is going to expire from scent overload'? Depends on the scents!
Who needs a recipe box? I actually made myself one a few years back. I love it
ANYONE ELSE want a home-made cookbook? That would be awesome! Although I'm not the best if recipes are super complicated. LOL.
How does everyone feel about really green gifties? I was thinking of giving my witchee some of my handy-dandy "paper" towels (hand-sized, washable muslin squares--kinda like ultra-cheapo cloth napkins) in a kitchen-friendly decorative box, but I didn't want to seem preachy ("Stop using paper towels, you environment destroyer!"). Would y'all use something like that? I doubt it. I am a FREAK about needing a napkin/paper towels when I eat. FREAK. I don't think I could give them up ever. And, really, it would just be more laundry, right? since I'd use about a million a day. eek! Sorry!
What craft (or crafts) have you been wanting to try but have no idea where to start? I'd like to make jewelry at some point, but supplies are a bit expensive, and I'm not sure where to start...
Would you appreciate some tunes in future packages? And if so, do you care if you get any CDs or mp3s you might have all ready? Or would you be able to find a way to post a list of things you're (a) looking for, or ( b ) all ready have? I think I answered this in the intial survey, but I'll do it again here. I LOVE music. But have little time to actually devote to listening to it, as I used to do it in the car... but my work commute is literally 3 minutes now. So while I would appreciate music, I just can't say I'd have time to listen. boohoo!
Polish goodies! Who wants them? Baked goods, candies, kielbasa, pirogies, magazines, you name it? Ummm... It would be really weird to have someone mail me kielbasa. REALLY weird. That scares me. ***9/18***
How do you avoid popping an item for yourself into an order you're placing for your witchie? It is sooo hard. I really can't say I do avoid doing that. Just depends on the day and what is in my wallet at the time. LOL.
Underpants? Do you like them? What's your style? Size? I like to buy my own panties, please. hehe
What tea would you love to try but haven't because of price or difficulty to get? I typically drink mild/sweet green teas
BPTP Room Sprays...your thoughts? They are AMAZING. I want a bottle of the Queen's Croquet at some point. It is delicious!
Would you like to receive baked goods from your Witch? And if so, are there things you WOULDN'T like? I'm a little weird when it comes to food being sent to me. I have weird paranoias of contamination. I can't help it. so as much as I would love them, I really would have a hard time getting myself to eat them. I would probably have a panic attack. LOL.
Your thoughts on the update? No Blood Moon for me... or Pancakes. hehe.
How do you decide what to put in which package for your Witchee or how many packages to send? I try to do three packages... or "gifts". And I do two smaller ones, than one larger at the end... and for grouping, sort of do it with what fits together (or in the box!) perfectly!
If you were my witchee, would you be terribly offended if I sent you a box containing project "experiments" or random miscellaneous pretty bits of brainstorming that I thought you might like/wear? That would be awesome! Please, feel free!
Do you often drink take away coffe in paper mugs? Nope! Don't like coffee
What would a perfume based on you smell like? Hmmm... sweet and similar to Hungry Ghost Moon probably. with dandelion!
Who here likes Wizard of Oz things? No thanks!
Do you like Mystery Science Theater 3000? Have you tried out (and if not, would you be interested in doing so) its weird little brother, RiffTrax? Nope, not really something I like at all. Actually, I would say I hate it. eek!
What will you like from Singapore? Candies? Food? Asian crafts/toys? I love little toys, knick knacks, notepads, erasers, bandaids and the like from places... but foods and candies usually scare me.
What is everyone's "luck" item? I have a moonstone I throw in my pocket sometimes that I think of as "lucky"
Do you like art deco/nouveau - style prints? Not usually, but sometimes I find one that I really like. Just depends!
What is one thing that, if you received it in the middle of all the hubbub, would make you smile and take your mind off of all you have to do for a bit? anything, really! I feel that way when I get even just an e-card. xoxo
How do you feel about Hello Kitty? I like that store, with all the stuff with Hello Kitty and her friends, but don't typically buy things in there. I love Deery Lou (that is the name of the deer, right? LOL. I forget). She is too cute!
Legwarmers? Armwarmers? love love LOVE these!
What makes everyone stand out from the Switch Witch herd? Not really sure...
If you are into the original Nintendo system, what 3 games would you want that you don't have? If I hadn't just gotten a Wii, I'd totally say "GIVE ME AN OLD NINTENDO! THAT WOULD ROCK!" and I'd probably kill someone for a California Games cartridge, too. hehe.
What is your favorite category of the GC? Hmmm... Maybe the Arkham set?
Stance on Joss Whedon and his enterprises? He is a freaking GENIUS
Has anyone tried ice wine before? Do/did they enjoy it? Wine doesn't really work for me... dont like the taste much. Of course I drink it anyway, though. LOL.
What other perfume companies (besides bpal) have you been curious about? There are a few Blooddrop scents I've been wanting to try... they are in my Wishlist
Does anyone here do anything with grave rubbings? No thanks!
Would you enjoy art based on original Graveyard photography? Depends on the picture, I guess! Not typically my "style", but there are of course many beautiful photos of that sort. I have an oracle deck by Graven Images Oracle that are all graveyard pics... My Enabler's friend took them, and they are beautiful
What's in your Netflix or Blockbuster queue, do you want any new Netflix/Blockbuster friends, if so how do we find you on there? I guess you can look up my name on there? I forget how it works... or email address (Netflix only). I am hoping to get Dexter Season 2 discs soon... they are all on Long Wait! Nooo!
Do you play a musical instrument? Nah... as a kid I did (piano, clarinet). Now I just like to sing!
What do you think of Irrelevant Disturbing and Surreal Crawdad Dream? Love it? Hate it? Kicking yourself for not getting a bottle? I love it! but have a lot already...
How do you feel about trinkets? You know - tiny toys or doodads that serve no purpose than to be cute, take up space and make us smile. Love them or waste of money? I have tons of cute doodads! love themCan melty things be shipped to you, or will they be in puddles by the time you open the package? I guess it depends on how far you are from me
Who likes pirates? Pirates are fun! But not in my decor or anything...
What are your feelings about Dia De Los Muertos? Don't really know that much about the celebration, but would be interested in learning more. I LOVE the designs, but don't really have anything from it around... but would possibly like a lot of things! I LOVE the BPTP tshirt. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
What do you think about the Nightmare Before Christmas? I LOVE IT! Tim Burton is AWESOME
If candy is sent, would you prefer small amounts to a Halloween sized bag? Whatever you send will be eaten by me and the BF. Trust me.
Do you like notes in your soaps or bath stuff that you don't like in your perfumes? If so which? Hmm... maybe things like sandalwood or amber I would like in a soap, but not in my perfume. But I typicall like the same sorts of things in both. Just no scratchies in the soap, please!
Do you like floral soaps or bath stuff? If so, what florals work and what don't? I love honeysuckle!
How do y'all feel about honey and maple? And different flavored honey, not just the standard kind? Please, SW, no honey or maple. icky...
What is your favorite thing to do on a cool fall day? it would be great to sit outside and read a magazine or book... if only I had the time!
If you have pets, is there a SPECIFIC toy they like to play with; brand and size? Is there a treat/cookie they eat? What brand and size? My kitty is a weirdo. She doesn't like toys OR treats. LOL.
What's your ringtone? "Crush Crush Crush" by Paramore for general calls... and the Knight Rider theme song for my BF
Just to throw a silly question out there...Munsters or Addams Family, y'all? I like both, but LOVED the Munsters when I was a kid. Like, OBSESSED.
What think you about receiving tea accessories and/or miscellany (like mugs, cups, saucers, strainers/filters, honey, natural sweeteners [like stevia])? I like mugs, but don't really need/use the other stuffs listed
How do you feel about copies of music or dvd's that your witch might have that you might enjoy? Not just mixes, but whole copies? Sure, why not?
Say, witches, I have a question about birthdays. do you expect/rely on other people to plans birthday outings and activities? Ummm... my mom is pretty good at organizing the family stuff. Anything done at home I would probably do.
Tarts? Yes/no? I love tarts! But my 2 fave companies aren't open anymore (4FatCats & Becca Lights). I don't know who else to use :-/
I'm wondering if my witchee would like to try these types of things (like the caramel with sea salts or chocolates with chilis/bacon/salt etc.)? No thank you!

Very important question: Are you planning on buying anything off your BPAL and/or other wishlists during the round? Not particularly with the BPAL, because of doing the decant circles... And I know to be "good" about the other wishlists!

Do you have a case for your mp3 player/digital camera? If you would want one, what size is your digital device? I have a ghetto case for my digi camera, but would love something new! knitted or something... Not beaded, as that could possibly scratch, I guess... unless you are super slick and can make it to avoid that :-P The camera is about 3-4 inches long, 2-3 inches high... 1-2 inches thick (judged by looking, not measuring the right way of course)
For tea drinkers, do you bag it or prefer loose? I like bagged tea, because I am a lazy bitch and HATE floaties in my tea!

Who are your forum buddies? People you know well enough online or IRL to help your Witch pick out stuff for you? *answered in SW thread*
My questionnaire is chock-a-block with ideas for Witching me on the cheap, and without sending "stuff for stuff's sake". And I just came up with another one--make me a Pandora, Finetune, or Last.fm station you think I might like! What manner of affordable Witchery might you covet? Not particularly interested in the radio thinger... but honestly I am a "cheap date" when it comes to fun gifty stuff. Even interesting online sites I might not know about would be fun to get links to!
Does your cell phone have a place to attach charms? *looks at it* ooh! it does! Who knew? LOL. And I have a big stuffed giraffe as my cover (FunFriends.com). i am in love with those! I get them on Ebay cheaper, though... I have a flip phone, and looking at their site I love the new ladybug one! *obsesses over it now*

How do you scent yourself? Do you layer soaps, moisturizers, etc. or do you go straight to slathering your bod with BPAL? Usually fun soap in the shower... then, if I am not lazy, maybe some lotion (I have Isle of Eden & Villianess right now), or maybe BPTP bath oil used as a lotion. Then I spray a scent if I want to (something fruity usually... or Marc Jacobs Daisy. omg. *drools*). Then I get ready for work. Then I put on the BPAL at the pulse points and in my hair!
Do you/how do you scent your world? Candles, incense, diffusers, potpourri? None of the above? I have a tart burner, or use big candles. no incense, please! or potpourri...

Strange and exotic spices with recipes to try? Cookies made with carnation petals?---- Well... I am a little weird about eating random things sent to me by someone I don't really "know". And, well, I'll pass on the vinegar (ewwww... ). I am a pretty bland eater. Crazy spices & flowery cookies would probably be wasted, and I would then feel awful!

Who here is a complete, over the top, Alice In Wonderland fanatic? Not I! I like it, but don't LIIIIIKE it.
