    I have a nanny to look after them when I'm gone for more than a day.
    Of course I will take them with me. What kind of person would leave them behind?
    If you had a chance to turn one of your 5th cats to a human being, who it would be and why?

    Now that sounds like it might be a good idea...until I remember that my cats--although they have different personalities--don't have the best human qualities.

    They're very hairy (I suppose they can't really help that). They sleep most of the day and night. They eat so much that they make themselves sick and then I have to clean it up.

    And they don't even make me breakfast in bed on Saturdays!

    No, NotMe, I'll just keep them as cats. I can accept their bad behavior that way.

    Are you addicted to social nets?

    Yes and no. I like to communicate with people and see what they have to say, but I have to be in front of a computer all day at work. So social networks are a way of keeping in touch with people. I'm on Facebook, expat.ru, and redtape.ru. I'm not on any other networks, though, because I think that's more than enough to keep me busy when I should be working.

    I've been to Turkey a couple of times. It was very exciting to go for a business trip the first year I was working in the multinational company. Saw the Grand Bazaar, The Haga Sophia, and the beautiful Blue Mosque. Unfortunately, it was only a 2-day trip.

    I've been to Izmir in similar circumstances at a conference where we spent the entire day in the hotel. We had a side trip to Ephesus that was great.

    Sorry, that should be Mozart's Coronation Mass. I didn't have my music with me when I aswered this, and we practiced this one a lot last night.

    I'm sorry. I don't understand your question. That is, I understand each individual word, but I don't understand what you mean to ask me.
