Your first name
Marion, but commonly known as Maz online

Your current location
Wet, cold and dreary Chicago suburbs :(

Where you hope to move to in NZ if you're not already there
Most likely the Wellington area, and least I hope so!

Family status
Married for over 11 years with one 5-year old daughter

Visits made to NZ
We're visiting NZ in April 2007 for 3 weeks. Dead excited! :D

Anything else! :)
Our 2 cats would come with us, but we'd find homes for the 2 guinea-pigs! They only live to about 5 or so anyway, so they're middle-aged and would never (well, it's unlikely) survive the flight.
