N: Nixies and O: Ogres

Nixies are water shape shifting water spirits from Germany. They are fond of music and dancing and can change into fish, serpent, or human form. In human form however they always have trace of wildness left on them such as green teeth or a damp skirt. They are, above all wild, and therefore can be as harmful as they can be helpful. (Anyone else having trouble seperating paragraphs with blogger's new set up?) An ogre is a humanoid monster of French origin. They are typically depicted as large, bullying animals who brutalize men and women and eat their flesh.


  1. I think I might like Nixies, but ogres not so much!

  2. every time you think of something on your back you think of monkeys... try having an ogre. what the heck kind of day might you be having?

  3. Hello, Taryn! I wouldn't want to run into an ogre. Well, unless it was Shrek. He acts all fierce but is really a great big teddy bear!

    Have a lovely week and happy A to Z!!

  4. Huh, I didn't know that nixies were German or ogres French... I wonder what's Italian (seriously - not sarcastically :) )
