How many Fiona Quinns? But yeah, I never use both my names

You just did. ;D

But I'm glad someone feels the same as me....

Actually, MWC was the first forum that saw my first name. I no longer feel the need to hide behind a pseudo name

Good on ya, Fiona. :-*

(P.S - Cathy or Catherine means 'Pure' - yeah, I snigger over that one too. ::))

My name is beginning to irritate me...

I chose it because I was having a bad day, although when I was about five, my mum bought me a pair of fake angel wings and I climbed up on the roof (we had a weird garden that sloped up to the top of the house) and then I spread my wings, jumped, and.... well, I broke my wings. Everything went downhill from there!

If I could change it I would, it would become something like 'Sellamillion' or 'Lestrange' both of which are kinda self explanitory.

Hmm, now I can't stop thinking of strange names...  ;)

But if I do that it would confuse people, at least, it would confuse me  ;)

After The Station hits Lulu, all new members will be mobbing me for advice. So I'd have to leave and return with a new name.

Again, not being British, I assume that pillock is some derogatory thing. I think it means something like putz, but I've only ever taken the meaning from context. Anyone want to help a Damn Yankee?
