Well, here's me, newbie to the site:
Name: Sepa (OK, it's really Kylie. Sepa's may cat and I use her name on the net). From: I live in London and have been down the arches a couple of times and am looking forward to Glasto too. BUT I'm really from Darwin, Australia, and yes, I am doing the Aussie thing in London and have been for 4 years now. Sad, isn't it! But lots of fun! Interests: Poi, love it, love it, love it. I've only been spinning for a couple of months but have only tried fire a couple of times as I don't have fire poi of my own yet. Favourite colour: Green and blue. Sadly my practice Poi are bright pink, they didn't have green when I bought them! Work: as a secretary but I also do helpdesk sometimes too. other interests: travelling (of course), having fun with friends, anytning and everything. I'm the archetypal jack-of-all-trades.
Not much more to say really, see you round, folks.
