So, those of you who are not affiliated with my BPAL addiction may or may not care about the answers to the questions posted here, but I thought it would be fun!! 

Where are a few of your favorite places?  
The beach in winter, Jamaica, a good friends house, deep in the woods in the middle of summer with a cool breeze rustling the leaves and no other sounds, my favorite leather chair with my blanky and a book
Out of curiosity, all the fall babies who are celebrating their birthdays during the round - who are you, and when is your bday?
I fall just after this round again – November 9th!
What is one (only one) object that you collect, that totally goes against your personality or beliefs?
None. I’m pretty much open to everything, and everything I collect has deep personal meaning to me, even if it’s not apparent to others….
Are you a soap addict? Anything you like to avoid in soaps (goat's milk, lye, dyes, etc...) or any particular scents you like or brands you want to try?
More of a scrub addict than soap, but both are good!  See my SW help list for details there….
Do you like kilts and would you wear one?
Yes, and no – they belong on boys
BoiWitches? Question for you both.....Hath any of thou own a Kilt?
What's your favorite book?
Way too many to list here…..
What size socks do you wear? How about hat size?
I wear a child size 5 shoe; I can wear a women’s size 7, but they always are big on me.  Hubby found children’s socks last year and bought the largest children’s size, and they fit SO good!  Seriously, no extra toe room or nothing! I’d love hand knitted ones, or hand knitted slippers, or slipper socks….but, I don’t like toe socks.  Those are strictly for my DD. I’m really picky about my hats…..I have no idea what size I wear.
Do you read comics? Which ones do you love and which can't you stand? 
I haven’t read comics in years, but I’m not opposed to reading any.  I’d love to read Watchmen, which is more of a graphic novel, as I understand it.  
Symbols that are meaningful to me?
Dragonflies, celtic symbols, my wedding band
By nature are you a morning lark or a night owl?
Night owl, big time. Because of my job and my physical limitations, I flip between nights and days….
What's your favorite type of music to hear live, rather than recorded?
Any of my favorite bands….we go and see my hubby’s favorite band Aerosmith any time they are local, and I’d love to see Pat Benetar again, the B-52’s, Manhatten Transfer, and some others I can’t think of right now…..
What is your favorite autumnal-seasonal drink?  
Spiced cider….yummmm……
Crossword puzzles? Other pencil puzzles?
I don’t get the whole Sudoku thing, but I do like crossword puzzles, and logic puzzles….
Favorite artist?
Don’t really have a favorite?  I like the fairies by Amy Brown and Nene Thomas, I like Monet, Picasso during his blue period, Arthurian pieces….
Favorite poet?
Merritt Malloy.  I don’t have any of her books, but I’d love some, especially her earlier works!
Halloween. Do you like it kooky or creepy? 
Yes, please! I have a little of both, but mainly towards the kooky….more sweet Halloween, like I have two Boyd’s bears that decorate my table, a ghost candy dish, some Longaberger Candy Corn pieces…..but I like the spooky stuff for outside!
Reserved or Raunchy?
Dude, me raunchy?  Hee hee hee……..
Earth, Wind, Fire or Water?
Water, all the way…
Tea or Coffee in the morning?
OJ and possibly a cold iced mocha. I don’t do a lot of coffee ever, I drink tea pretty much all of the day
Fruity snacks or chocolate?
Chocolate, chocolate chocolate! I don’t do fruit, it’s too sweet for me.  I prefer rich to sweet….
Would you accept art?
Absolutely, with pleasure and much bragging rights!
Antiques or Brand New?
Depends on what it is…..but I do love older pieces, especially if they have a history.
What keywords do you use when searching for items for yourself on Etsy?
So far, just ‘corset’ and to look and drool over Alicia Stardust’s items…..there’s also someone who sells bath oil pellets for fibro which are supposed to work very well, on there.  
Are there any of y'all who are allergic/sensitive to having natural fibers on your skin?
I’m not allergic, but I am very sensitive to fibers.  I can wear pretty much anything, but I prefer soft fibers, whether natural or not. 
What was your favorite ghost/scary/campfire story growing up?
Don’t remember….
Bugs? Do you like 'em or not? 
Um, no.  Especially not spiders.  I DON’T like spiders.  At all.  
i haz no imp storage. do you?
Just a small box that I throw them into…made out of clear plastic. Not really what I would like, but it does the job
If you have a garden/planter box, what do you grow?
I have two African Violets and a Xmas cactus that are both doing well.  I’d love to grow some herbs on my windowsill, but haven’t gotten around to getting the seeds and containers and such.  
What incense scents do you prefer?  
None, thank you……..
Do you decorate for Halloween? What sort of decorations? Dress up for Halloween?
Yes – for the decorations, see above.  Dress up just depends on my mood, and usually includes cool makeup.
Bats, cats, skeletons, monsters, vampires, witches or what other ghoulies do you prefer?
All of the above!
Do you like horror flicks?
Yep, all kinds from gorey B movies to the really good suspenseful keep-you-at-the-edge of your seat type
Who here prefers stylus and ink to ballpoint? Anyone invested time and effort into calligraphy or proper Victorian writing?
I can do calligraphy, but it’s not something I spend any real time on.
What about stationery? Need some? What styles do you like?
Yes, I do, and I’m open to suggestions!
What is one item that you've wanted forever, could have afforded, but have never gotten and why (haven't you gotten it!)?
Um…..don’t know?
What Halloween scent are you most looking forward to?
No idea…..
Tattoos! Do you have em? Do you want em? Whatcha got or getting?
Yes, I have a dragonfly with stained glass wings on my right shoulder, and I’m getting a gryphon with or without a dragon entwined with it as my tramp stamp, when I get the money together.  
Reduce - REUSE - recycle. Do others feel the same? 
Pretty much.  We tend to reuse items whenever possible, but we’re not rabid about it.
What is your favorite crafting supply?
Beading, especially semi-precious faceted beads
Weigh in...Are you right or left-handed?  
Left handed and proud of it!
Any period of time that you love?  
The roaring 20’s and medieval times; also ancient Japan
What's your favorite part about Fall?
The cooler temperatures allowing me to wear sweaters, and the changing of the leaves, making the local mountains look like patchwork quilts
Do you like office/school supplies? If so, what is your favorites?
Yep! I love gel pens in black ink, and I’m really getting into different colored Flair pens – the ones with the bright ink and soft tip.  They make writing so much easier for me!!
What's your favorite Halloween candy?  
Chocolate, especially the Snickers pumpkins!
Will you be participating NaNoWriMo? If so, is there anything you'd like to have for that?
Not this year, but I do have the writing manual for it on my Amazon list!
Where does everyone like shop for witching goodness?
Everywhere I go!!
What is your favorite pumpkin goodness?
My own pumpkin bread….hubby loves my pumpkin pie…..
