US citizenship test

The Herald-Sun is running an online sample of questions from the US citizenship test online. Served as a good reminder that I need to get off my duff and start the paperwork for my US citizenship. My greencard will expire in 2006, so it’s definitely time to get the wheels turning on this.

Am looking forward to being a dual citizen. Nothing spells James Bond like choosing which passport to use when you travel…

Oh, and I passed the Herald-Sun version of the test. Woho!
