used to ask how much of something someone has, or to ask about someone's arrangements:
How are you fixed for cash?
How are you fixed for Saturday evening?

How are you fixed? :
How are you placed?, as in "They're running a trip to the Panto on Tuesday - how are you fixed for going?"

Is it common? What did Frank mean by "...fixed for moonlight/stars" ?

Is it ok to ask someone "How are you fixed?" if it's obvious what we're talking about eg. he's counting money in front of me?
