Ben, his head wedged against my pencil box, is watching me, vaguely reproachfully, out of one eye. (I am not petting him at this precise moment. The horror.) He'll like having another cat to pester, and a little more space to run around in, I suspect.
I'm contemplating leaving my rather hefty TV here and picking up a wee flat-screen number out in California, since the cost of shipping the TV back and forth is likely to exceed the cost of a new one.
I think portability is becoming my new religion. Pity I can't do art on a laptop worth a damn.
Trying to figure out health insurance. I can get health insurance via AAA for a decent price, but only if I'm a resident of North Carolina. It's tempting to go with that, since I know I have to come back to get my stuff, after all, and my jaunt in CA is only temporary, but I realize I'm not really sure what's involved in maintaining a residency in a state. A mailing address? Keeping my driver's license here? Voting absentee in NC elections? Can I get a PO box here and call it good, or do I have to jump through some kind of hoops?
