    He actually admitted to cutting himself more than once by going the wrong way! You know, even if I had done that, I'm not sure I'd admit it to anyone!

You could try practicing in the mirror, though. Just remove every bit of interest in what you are looking at (in this case it would be yourself), make sure there isn't the remotest hint of a smile tugging at the corners of your mouth, give a very small non-committal grunt and keep looking back at what you are actually interested in, ie. your book. I promise you, it works.
    I think I lack the gene for this. I would LOVE to do it, but everyone tells me I have such an open face. Hence being flypaper for freaks. I think part of my problem is fear of confrontation in a public place like the doctor's office waiting room. But I have discovered excusing myself for the restroom and then sitting back down in a different part of the waiting room.

    I have no problem confronting people when they've pissed me off. It's just in settings like the waiting room that I don't do it.

    I must practice my stare. Or come up with something that is worse than their problem that will scare them off. Maybe a "do you hear that? The pod people are saying that I must kill again and soon."

    Miss Kitty, do you have a Staples or Office Depot? (not sure if they are in Canada), but they carry those.

    , I use the sawing back and forth motion myself and have yet to cut myself. I didn't know you are only supposed to go in one direction. Hmm, note to self: Must read the directions first.

    Once again, I think I am related to Rattus; I'm always accused of looking "mean" or "pissed off"-usually I'm only daydreaming. Anyway, that means I can help. I'll have someone take a picture of my Mean Woman Face, and blow it up to life size. Then you can use it as a mask when you don't want to be aggravated. Or maybe you had rather be Rattus today?
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    Queenb, I actually have a life size mask of a friend of mine and his mean face (we used them for a surprise 35th birthday party one year and it was hysterical).
    So you and Rattus both send me one and I can pick from 3 to use.

    I have a dr. appt. this morning. I'm going to try my mean face and see if it works. I'll let you know in case, I need you guys to make me a couple masks.

    ETA: Does anyone know where I can buy binders for magazines? You know the kind that come with those little sticks you place in the middle of the magazine so you can keep 6 or so in a binder? I don't want to punch holes in any of them. They are face and bodypainting issues from the UK.
    Try this link and go from there, you might find something my dear.

    He would, arrogantly, disagree with your assessment. You can just look at the files on the Egg and see that using it in the direction of the short axis would cause a problem.

    He does a lot of things for me, so I try to keep my eye-rolling and sighing to a minimum around him.

    Having car trouble again. It quit AFTER I put gas in it. It may have been the shock of getting filled up that did it. But why quit AFTER I spent a fortune to fill it up?
    I feel like going on a Yosemite Sam rampage. So it's at the gas station and I'm at home, apparantly for a while.
