  • Icebreakers!

    Ok, I thought I'd post some sort of questionnaire form here in the Introductions forum, hoping that it might make it easier for the newbies to "break the ice", so to speak. Newbies, you might like to copy the questions and then paste them into your own new reply with your own answers. If there's anything on here that you don't want to answer for any reason, just leave it blank.
    I'll go first as an example; heck, any of you "non-newbies" can join me if you like - why not let the Newbies get a taste of us too?

    1) Is there a story behind your user I.D./screen name?

    2) How'd you find us here at Mystic Wicks?

    3) Do you follow any certain path (spiritually)?

    4) Would you give me a kidney if I needed it? JUST KIDDING! Only checking to see who's paying attention... lol

    the real #4) Would you like people to send you a private message saying "hi" if they see your profile and want to get to know you better?

    5) Do you use incense, and if you do, do you have a favorite scent?

    6) How about "totem animals"; is there any certain animal with which you most identify?

    7) Is there anything else you think we should know about you, or that you'd like to share?

    Greenwitchcraft mostly traditional wicca as well

    4) Would you give me a kidney if I needed it? JUST KIDDING! Only checking to see who's paying attention... lol

    the real #4) Would you like people to send you a private message saying "hi" if they see your profile and want to get to know you better?

    sure why not

      1) Is there a story behind your user I.D./screen name?
      Guess I should update this - been through so many of them! Upcoming one is via synchronicity with the Pink Floyd song and also her White Cliffs of Dover song.

      2) How'd you find us here at Mystic Wicks? I did a search for lirope, which is a plant that has been growing in my back yard. So I'm here by "accident"!
      :D

      3) Do you follow any certain path (spiritually)? Not really... I feel as though I'm becoming more spiritual all the time, but I'm drawn to different aspects of several different spiritual schools of thought.

      4) Would you give me a kidney if I needed it? JUST KIDDING! Only checking to see who's paying attention... lol :D

      the real #4) Would you like people to send you a private message saying "hi" if they see your profile and want to get to know you better? Oh, I'm always open to messages!

      5) Do you use incense, and if you do, do you have a favorite scent? Yes, I do... I think that my favorite would have to be the HEM Frank Incense, but I also love Nag Champa and Superhit... and Patchouli... I also love to use sage for smudging.

      6) How about "totem animals"; is there any certain animal with which you most identify? Well the obvious choice for me would be a frog, wouldn't it? However, I've felt a pull toward more than one other animal spiritually, such as the giraffe and the eagle. I'm definitely connected to spiders, although I'm not sure if I'm totally comfortable with it yet! Oh and I cannot believe I almost forgot about the peacock!

      7) Is there anything else you think we should know about you, or that you'd like to share? I'm a tad weird. You may have figured that out by now.

            1) Is there a story behind your user I.D./screen name?

            Well my nickname is Kitty but I wanted something a little more meaningful for a user name so I choose this name based on the story of the Sacred Cat of Burma. You can read a little about the legend here if you are interested: http://pio.tripod.com/magicpaw/catmyths.html

            2) How'd you find us here at Mystic Wicks?

            I'm fairly new to Paganism and was searching for a place to discuss things with and came upon you all!

            3) Do you follow any certain path (spiritually)?

            I'm still finding my way but at the moment I am very attracted to Wicca so I am focusing my studying on that area right now.

            #4) Would you like people to send you a private message saying "hi" if they see your profile and want to get to know you better?

            Absolutely! I love PMs :bouncysmi

            5) Do you use incense, and if you do, do you have a favorite scent?

            Not yet.

            6) How about "totem animals"; is there any certain animal with which you most identify?

            You think I'm going to pick the cat don't you? Hehehe. Actually the Wolf is the one I most identify with - I've always felt a connection with them since I was a little girl.

            7) Is there anything else you think we should know about you, or that you'd like to share?

            Ummm... no. : I'm a nervous newbie right now.

                This is in lieu of the intro I never posted.

                1) Is there a story behind your user I.D./screen name?
                Um, it was a name I came up with in year 11 I think. It's Italian. It had been floating around in my head for ages. It means (supposedly though I have a feeling the endings aren't right) "Silver Eyes." The only explanation I can give as to why it means something to me is that in a fantasy series I'm rather fond of, one of the characters is blind and blindness is described as being silver-eyed, or something to that effect. And since I have crappy eyes (but not technically blind, I just meet the requirements for driving, ok?), I felt it was kinda fitting. The silver eyes were a sign of deeper insight, seers, or something like that. I really must go back and read those books again.

                2) How'd you find us here at Mystic Wicks?
                Oh, the Gods only know. I stumbled across it one summer (possibly 2000-01), forgot about it when school started again, and came back later on. I made a new log-in as I forgot the password for the first one. i've been here since.

                3) Do you follow any certain path (spiritually)?
                Kemetic Orthodoxy, with a fascination for Hinduism and Roman Catholicism (this from a completely Protestant family).

                4) Would you give me a kidney if I needed it? JUST KIDDING! Only checking to see who's paying attention... lol
                I could find you a kidney if you needed one. Well, you didn't specify species, Boofy.

                the real #4) Would you like people to send you a private message saying "hi" if they see your profile and want to get to know you better?
                Yeah, go ahead. I'll try my best not to scare people away. :D No, really, I ain't that scary.

                5) Do you use incense, and if you do, do you have a favorite scent?
                Yep, love incense. Frankincense has to be my fave scent, or a frank/myrrh combo. Heavenly!

                6) How about "totem animals"; is there any certain animal with which you most identify?

                Not really. Possibly cats. Never got the whole totem animals thing. Never thought it was needed.

                7) Is there anything else you think we should know about you, or that you'd like to share?

                I write horror-fantasy, I'm slightly crazy, I love anything shiny, sharp, pointy or with bells, and I love slash just a little too much, (It's not possible, I swear it isn't) (If you don't know what slash is, don't ask about it) For anything else, see my LJ, or my websites -- see links in my sig.

                That enough, Boofy?

                Oh, and call me Argent. :D

                  Hey, nice idea AuntBoo, i'll give it a go.
                  1) Is there a story behind your user I.D./screen name?ummm ... i guess i was kinda wandering in search of a home when I came across here, and that's how i thought of the name. It also goes well in a kind of ironic way with the avatar.

                  2) How'd you find us here at Mystic Wicks?
                  My ex girlfriend, who knew that I was interested in Paganism even if i wasn't sure yet that I was, suggested it to me as she thought i might be interested. As you can see, i was.

                  3) Do you follow any certain path (spiritually)?
                  I haven't finalized anything yet, I think you could call me an eclectic Christian-flavoured pagan inclining towards Wicca.

                  4) Would you give me a kidney if I needed it? JUST KIDDING! Only checking to see who's paying attention... lol

                  the real #4) Would you like people to send you a private message saying "hi" if they see your profile and want to get to know you better?
                  Sure i would AuntBoo, i'd do anything for you .... um, sure, why not? I'm pretty friendly as long as I've had my coffee.

                  5) Do you use incense, and if you do, do you have a favorite scent? yes, I like Patchouli, thought lately i've been getting into opium ..... just 'cos I hope people will ask what it is, so i can say "That? oh, it's just opium ... want to try some?"

                  6) How about "totem animals"; is there any certain animal with which you most identify?Though I've never been lucky enough to see one in the wild, i do kind of identify with the wolf ...
                  ... and the sheep of course.

                  7) Is there anything else you think we should know about you, or that you'd like to share? Aren't you scared enough yet??

                    What a spiffy idea.

                    1) Is there a story behind your user I.D./screen name? Nope. It's my name. No, seriously, it is. :P

                    2) How'd you find us here at Mystic Wicks? Probably also by accident via Google.

                    3) Do you follow any certain path (spiritually)? Sure. My own.

                    4) Would you like people to send you a private message saying "hi" if they see your profile and want to get to know you better? Sure. PMs are perfectly welcome.

                    5) Do you use incense, and if you do, do you have a favorite scent? Yes, I do. So far, my favourite scene is generally lavender, though I'm also very fond of "ocean."

                    6) How about "totem animals"; is there any certain animal with which you most identify? I don't know much on totem animals or anything, but I do relate well to snakes in particular. I'm also rather connected to serpents in general (particularly Chinese dragons).

                    7) Is there anything else you think we should know about you, or that you'd like to share? Well, if you know astrology, I can tell you a couple of things that everyone else "should" know about me: I have at least five planets in Capricorn, and I have Mercury in Aquarius and Mars in Aries. With that knowledge, you've got the basics of my personality.

                            the real #4) Would you like people to send you a private message saying "hi" if they see your profile and want to get to know you better? I love PM's. lol

                            5) Do you use incense, and if you do, do you have a favorite scent? I use it all the time. I love Dragon's Blood and Egyptian Musk.

                            6) How about "totem animals"; is there any certain animal with which you most identify? I most identify with cats. Not house cats, but wild cats, like bobcats and cougars. But my totem animals consist of a Bobcat, Bear, and more recently a Crow.

                            7) Is there anything else you think we should know about you, or that you'd like to share? I am a part time paranormal investigator. I love ghost hunting! I am currently writing a book about my experiences in the paranormal. :boing:

                              1) Is there a story behind your user I.D./screen name? Ok... well a long time ago when I first joined a Led Zeppelin forum (yes, Led Zeppelin come into every story!) I called myself JimmysGirl (in relation to Jimmy Page, the guitarist). I never liked it much but I became known as JG and it stuck :P

                              2) How'd you find us here at Mystic Wicks? From a Google search

                              3) Do you follow any certain path (spiritually)? Hrmmm.... I suppose right now I am a beginner, solitary, eclectic Pagan.

                              4) Would you like people to send you a private message saying "hi" if they see your profile and want to get to know you better? Yes, I'm always willing to talk to new people :D

                              5) Do you use incense, and if you do, do you have a favorite scent? Mum won't let me burn things in my room... haha. I still manage a sneaky candle in every now and again though!.

                              6) How about "totem animals"; is there any certain animal with which you most identify? I havn't found one yet

                              7) Is there anything else you think we should know about you, or that you'd like to share? I play the guitar... um... I like aniseed... is that enough? :P
