Do you ever stare at the screen too long without blinking?

Some of the time when I read something I enjoy, I'll forget to blink, then when I do I have to pause for a minute while my eyes tear. Does that happen to you too?

Actually embarassing as it is to admit, this happens to me quite often. My ears dont usually tear though, thats one of those rare things. I just get so absorbed in what I am reading that I forgot the other elements around me, including what i have to do to keep my eyes from hurting lol And funnily enough, as i was reading the description of your conversation, i realised that it had been a while since i last blinked. I also do this when I am writing on the keyboard, even though things are moving in front of me. I think subconsciously I know that blinking will put me off a little so I neglect to do it as much.
