    I'm with you. A 1BR apt has no space for several bookcases. I need to put them in storage like jenn26point2.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    The more polite, brisk, and restrained I am, the less I like you. Just because I'm smiling doesn't mean I like you. I may be imagining pimp slapping you. If I'm cussing and threatening to kick you, I have accepted you as at least a minor friend.

    So a major friendship could result in loss of a limb?

    If I am polite I am generally not smiling. I don't smile at people I do not like. Apparently I have a very expressive face. As such, I have to be very careful to keep facial expressions neutral with those I want to pimp slap so as to avoid my face giving me away. So neutral look and ultra-politness means I am probably hoping you contract a painful case of genital herpes.

    My face is very expressive as well, but I've learned to turn the "go die" glare into a polite Southern Belle smile of "that's nice, honey, go fuck a pine cone."
    And you can ask most of my Guys, they've all been kicked repeatedly.

    I get sickenly sweet and a very cold tone to my voice if I don't like you. If I do like you, I am very sarcastic and funny. Pretty much my normal self. My face is full of expression, but I don't care if I hide it or not.

    Most people can figure out if I don't like them. I've had people ask why I don't like them, I tell them I just don't and walk away.

    ouch. My face is so expressive, my husband can tell when I am annoyed at him even if I don't want him to know. Unfortunately, this causes him to sometimes read things that aren't there.

    One reason Mrs. FW and I have such a sweet and enduring marriage is that we are both complete idiots. Simply absurd. With all the holiday crowds, I kept harrumphing about the zombie apocalypse, and sometimes spontaneously broke into zombie in the middle of Costco, for example. Mrs. FW perfected the zombie face. I ask Is it... the ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE?! And she gives me the prefect slackjawed expression of a brain-eater every time.

    There are various other memes: she'll be talking away in the passenger seat and suddenly realize I'm "driving while asleep" (the eye away from her is open, but head is back, mouth agape). There's the "who can out-dumb the other," which is actually pretty nuanced - you have to have a sincere, deadpan expression and be able to speak in almost-sensible non-sequitur ("Why did though do there?", "Where did you doze that?", etc.). There's the goober face, which pops up frequently and unexpectedly. And more.

    But yeah, Mrs. FW can read me like the proverbial Kindle. She often imitates the exasperation facec, as when we are separated in a big store and I find her a bit past the expiration point of my patience.
