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!

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.
