(First of all may I say thank you to the lovely Mittimer for a suggestion of questions to answer, because I suffer from a lack direction and focus, and suggestions like yours are extremely helpful to me in situations like this!) Hiya, I'm Nixie and am here at the invitation of a particularly lovely and sexy lass that just so happens to also be a member here (waves to Can Can!). However, since arriving I've run across loads of other people I know from all sorts of murky corners of the internet, so that's made me think this place must be a good place to explore. My name is Nixie (I'd tell you my age but I don't know the current exchange rate from water faerie to human) and I live in the land of Nessie, crumbly castles and whisky (that's whisky without an E... yeah, we own that spelling and don't you forget it!). The weather here is... well... dreich. Yep, weather so bad we had to come up with our own word for it. For fun? I tend to cause trouble. Well, some people call it trouble, I call it being a free spirit. Differences of opinion have got me into all sorts of sticky situations, but what's life without a bit of stickiness? What made me join SF? Well.... erm.... um.... so.... yeah... next question please? I'm looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. As far as what I hope to gain? That's the only question I have no answer to, because I tend to go through life with absolutely no plan whatsoever. It's a blessing and a curse and probably why I'm here.
