You could never make me pick up the phone
My friends in London were SHOCKED when I told them about the shiny new options for freelancers in Oregon to self-insure for around $200/month. That won't fully cover you, by the way...you'll still pay a percentage whenever you have a medical bill. And yeah, that's still loads better than it was. I just turned 26, and though Obama saved my butt by extending my coverage on my parents' health insurance for 3 years, I'm currently uninsured. (-_-)
Woof, I'm still a little tender today after that surprise stomach flu attack. I was lucky it happened while I was at Nico's; he kept me alive while I was useless on the couch for 24 hours. He says it was inevitable to get sick eventually in a new country, and I have to build up my immunity to France. :P
We had a nice surprise today -- Periscope Studio sent a holiday care package!!! Chocolate, tea, coffee, Mexican food ingredients, peanut butter, mac & cheese mix, drawings, cards, homemade jam, photos, mp3s...you should have seen us shrieking like little kids over each new item. :) Of course we ripped that mac & cheese open and cooked it immediately.
