Yes. However, I always turn the paper (or whatever) I'm writing on sideways,
but usually in a direction where my hand smudges the writing and my hand
gets dirty, especially when I'm writing with a pencil. I've tried
calligraphy, but as you said, it's really hard trying not to mess everything
when writing with the left hand.

Haven't seen those eps yet (though I am a Buffy fan also). I think Michael
Saunders was watching Cat (and Gwendolyn) in his peripheral vision to see
how they acted on this first class, and it only seemed that his back was
completely turned. Still, he could also have been using some kind of spell.
