i drink out of the side of my mouth with my mouth closed...its wierd...i like suck out of the side of my mouth.....

I do something similar.
I eat fries by inserting them into the right hand side of my mouth. Acording to my mom, I've done this since I've been able to feed myself. I stop when I catch myself doing it now though blink.gif

i can't wake up on even number times ...actually i can't do anything on even number times without feeling weird

i set my alarm to get me up in the morning and the last number has to be 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9...

when i punch in at work i either punch in a minute early or a minute late ...i can't punch in when the number ends in a 0

that's the ultimate...the 0 thing...i can't see movies that start exactly on the hour or half hour...i see the quarter of the hour movies

i also do everything in military time like the 1300 hour, 2300 hour, because the repeating numbers bother me too...my watch and my phone have the military time..

it's weird too because i am at work really late and my best hour at work is midnight and on military time midnight is 00:00...i can't look at my watch the whole hour...it just freaks me out for some reason..which i guess i wouldn't have that problem if i didn't use military time, but the rest of the day i need the double hour afternoon/evening times because of the repeating thing...

I used to bite my nails.. until they bled. I stopped, really easily but I still nibble on them, put my teeth behind them or put them to my mouth whenever Im nervous, bored, or just when i have nothing to do with my hands.

When I talk to people I dont know I avoid eye contact as much as possible, and fidgit or touch my face, I cant help it! I also cant stand or sit still.

I bite pens. I snap off the clippy bits from penlids and chew the edges of them.

I walk backwards. (Today I very impressively managed to headbutt a lampost by turning round not at a very good time unsure.gif

I rearrange stuff. I like everything to be tidy unless its in my room, which is a total mess.

I say "um" "thanks" and "sorry" waaaay too much.

When I used to have braces, I had to have these little elastic bands attatched to part of it for some reason... and I always used to flick them with my tongue. tongue.gif

Cant really think of anything else.. I'll have to edit if i think of more. smile.gif

Well, welcome!

I make websites. Obessively. And then abandon them. Compulsively.

Actually, I do that with most things...
CrazyFooIAintGettinOnNoPlane
yeah I have one website that is very bad, and one that is not finished as Im too lazy to finish it sad.gif Also Im over ambitious and stupid and end up confusing myself dry.gif

My main quirks involve being clean. I have to be clean.... lol I like everything to be clean.... lol I constantly wash my hands, brush my teeth, and sanitize things religiously. My boyfriends tells me I'm going to end up one of those really weird people who has to wear gloves all the time when I go places.... lol *hoping he's wrong* lol

I also have to have something in my mouth. I buy big packages of gum at Sam's Club smile.gif But I also have pens, straws, etc. in my mouth a lot of the time. When I'm nervous or worrying about something, I either bite on my lip or chew on my finger nails. I don't bite my nails so that they get shorter or anything... just chew on 'em a little.
CrazyFooIAintGettinOnNoPlane
I chew on mine till they have little score lines.. but I wont bite them off, because thats giving in.. I just pick them a bit till they come off by theirselves... unsure.gif

I get way too ambitious about things, start them with a big burst of enthusiasm, get half way through, and then lose interest. As a result I have numerous projects lying around the place - internet sites, a model chateau, a wargame, even an idea for a business. I need to commit.

I have quite a bit of trouble going more than ten minutes without pulling skin off of my lips. That, and I like to set things to music. And not just turning on some music once in a while. I have the tendancy to think "This is what is going on, and this is the type of music that would go good here if it were a film.". I keep those thoughts to myself, but, if I said them all aloud, it would probably annoy people to near death.
CrazyFooIAintGettinOnNoPlane
Oh yeah... I think about something,
then I think about telling someone about that something i was thinking about,
then i think about thinking about telling someone about the thing i thought about,
then I notice the big annoying loop and think about it,

About the same friend Polo was going on about. I ask him to hold my orange while I do "something" and then he jumps up to wash his hands - its quite funny really.

erm I chew food on the right side of my mouth. I chew biros only. I sleep with an Elmo and pinkie. If I say goodbye to one teddy bear, I have to say bye to them all. I hate dolls but love stuffed toys. erm Oh yeah, and Polo's tie. I love his tie. He said he would give it to me, but then he lost it sad.gif

My head is like a badly directed movie. If I imagine something, its always in the same format as CSI or a blockbuster action movie, or with appropriate music. Oh the fun! Or its just a cheap porn movie. Those ones are particularly... vivid.

Me too! I always thought it was just another quirk. Nice to know someone else does that.

I used to have a big thing of dreaming then the alarm goes off or something and I wake up, get dressed, go to school then something happens like an elephant walking across the street and I realise I'm still dreaming, so I wake up, get dressed, go to school, then something happens like an elephant walking across the street and I realise I'm still dreaming, so I wake up, get dressed, go to school, then something happens like an elephant walking across the street and I realise I'm still dreaming, so I wake up, get dressed, go to school, then something happens like an elephant walking across the street and I realise I'm still dreaming, ......
I was nearly always late for school by the time I woke up. Doesn't happen as much now though, I think it was the stress of school.

^^^ouch that sounds horrible

I have normal stuff, like trying to avoid cracks (at times, I could NEVER step on them when I was younger).

And I have strange dreams. One of them I was in a ship with Polo, the guy who likes to wash his hands all the time and his twin. It looked like the ship from Futurama, but it could fly, go on land AND underwater. And the water was like jelly. Then there was the time when I dreamt I was having an affair with my Physics teacher...twice - and I thought it was true in those first few minutes after I woke up, and imagine my relief when it twas a dream. Oh and then there was the time when I was killing aliens outside a purple planet, and then there was some of the nicer ones *cheeky grin*

erm I think I've gone slightly offtopic...

i just remembered another thing today...

i have this whole...THING about going into shops and buying things at a counter...i dunno what it is...i get all self-conscious and paranoid...and i feel all weird...don't feel better until i'm actually out of the shop...
CrazyFooIAintGettinOnNoPlane
The not stepping on cracks thing is just a game for me... I do it when Im bored. But I have to skip bits as well so i take really big steps and look weird.

My dreams are very messed up. Once I dreamed that there was an extra level on space impact (the game on nokia phones) and it was a 3d chess type thing, and i was god, playing against the big monster thing. I had a 2 sided sword, a 2sided axe and a pawn. I didnt want the 2 sided axe, and in the end I attacked a random nuclear power plant (red alert 2 style) and It exploded and we all died. unsure.gif

I die quuite a lot in my dreams actually... blink.gif

I dont like shops at all.. especially clothes ones dry.gif I work in a newsagent and I have to go to work tommorow and I dont wanna, the customers scare me. sad.gif
Succubusalicious
Oh my God there are so many weird things I do. I have to be even, like if someone hits my right arm I have to hit my left arm and stuff like that. Except on my left arm it doesn't matter so much because it's my favourite side.

I have to start each flight of stairs on my left foot and end on my left. Also if I catch sight of the right side of my face in the mirror I have to turn around and look at the left side. I'm such a freak !! ohmy.gif
miss_spunk
HANNAH YOU'RE SUCH A SPUTNIK FREAK!!!
antagony
I go crazy if someone leaves a door ajar. Especially when I'm trying to sleep... actually, I turn into a genuine psycho when I'm trying to sleep. Everything has to be perfectly aligned. Also, I take pens apart when I'm bored.

I'm obsessive-compulsive though. Among other things. Being crazy isn't that bad...

What was I talking about again?
CrissiLove
When I'm going to go to sleep, I have to have everything turned off--no light or noise.

Oh, and I have a weird thing with staplers.... lol I just keep pushing down on the stapler over and over--until I get a nice little hill of closed staples. I remember doing that when I was in elementary school even. I had a small stapler that I would put on my desk and just keep pushing on it.... I still do that sometimes if I'm talking on the phone or something and I'm sitting at my desk. unsure.gif

CrazyFooIAintGettinOnNoPlane
I fired a staple into the teachers eye once... well just above the eye. Dunno how I did it, I didnt actually mean to hit him.. staplers can be good catapult type things though. And I didnt even get a detention! My innocent look is so great biggrin.gif
SteelWingedCherub
Um I have a few

- allways leave a little drink at the bottom of my cup
- I Rarely almost never have my blinds open because I cant stand the constant blazing of the sun througth my windows
- I always try to avoid eye contact
- I always try to avoid eating in public places but when I have to like in a resturant I have to sit facing the wall or I just cant eat my food
- I avoid going into shops that have really loud colors like a bright orange floor ect or bright lights and even load music it scares me away
- I always have to cross the road in the same place and walk at he left hand side of ppl
- I chew my food on the left hand side of my mouth

I smoke....not a complusive habit you say? Well, I don't smoke for the nicotene. I haven't wanted a smoke in about a week, but I smoke daily, just to have something to do on the way home. And if I smoke and I'm not driving, I have to let the smoke drift out of my mouth, I can't blow it. And I watch it float into the air.
WeeJ
I click a lot. Especially my knuckles and wrists. I think its because I need to keep my hands busy.

Oh...and people who whistle in public should be shot. It may be a habit with some people..but it is the most annoying habit ever. It drives me insane and makes me grind my teeth whenever anyone does it mad.gif

if you're smoking daily and you're not smoking for the nicotene you soon will be. just my personal experience there. **coughs** been going strong for almost 10 years off and on. damn it's been that long. I never meant to let the habit last more than a year or two.

nicked from other ppl that fit the bill:
"I make websites. Obessively. And then abandon them. Compulsively."
I start sites off, and then get into really complex server side scripts, really enthusiastic, but then I have to goto bed, and the next day i just can't be bothered with remembering how it works, so I leave it.

I'll never just GO to the toilet when i'm on the net or whatever, I just won't notice until i'm jigging about desparate.


"Oh yeah... I think about something,
then I think about telling someone about that something i was thinking about,
then i think about thinking about telling someone about the thing i thought about,

God I do that kinda thing!!! I thing about telling someone about something, then make their response up and have a conversation in my head, by the time I get to an end, the topic of conversation has passed so it never leaves my head!!! Weird, eh?

When I was learning to Swim, i couldn't stand on the black stripes on the floor of the pool, no idea why, but they freaked me out.

I can never sleep until at least 2am, unless i'm really knackered, but I have real trouble going to bed, there's just not enough hours in the day to do all the stuff I have to get done. This links in to the website one, as i'll work on a site until the wee hours of the morning and then abandon it, so wasting the effort!

Anyway, it's 02:20 here, so I guess I can go to bed. :/

I can't really think of any on my own, but other ppls remind me, so carry on!!!

used to happen to me all the time...except for the elephant part

i'd hear my alarm go off and i'd wake up get ready and think i'm at school and then i like sneeze or roll over and i'm so upset because now i really have to get up when i thought i already was up and the whole waking process was completed...

yea it sucks

The elephant was just an example... That only happened a few times, and in two of those it was swimming not walking.

I think that must be pretty common with stressed students.

I actually jumble the numbers on my alarm clock when I'm half asleep. This morning I was reading it "3:57" and it actually said "4:57". Therefore, I was late and missed the bus, and will probably get in a whole lot of trouble when my mom gets home. But really, people are stupid as hell when half asleep. Geez. No, three quarters asleep.

I once had a two-part dream. one saterday morning I dreamed I was at a party with a lot of my friends and this crazy axe-murderer type charged in. in an effort to save everyone I threw myself in front of the first axe swing, I was knocked unconscience.

seven days later I dreamed that I woke up at the same party, bleeding from the head. I saw a blood trail going upstairs so I went to the kitchen and grabbed a big, sharp knife encrusted with pizza goop. I went upstairs where the axe-murderer was sleeping, woke him up, and the instant he oppened his eyes I began to brutally hack and slash.

I woke up happy and ready run my croos country race...

ok maybe that was a little off topic but has anyone else ever had a two part dream?
drarok
Sort of, but not as strange...
I don't remember my dreams very often, but I do sometimes when i'm dreaming (make sense?)

This is all a fuzzy memory, of course, as it's dream stuff...

But I can remember one dream where something (can't remember what) was going on and I thought "I dreamt that!" But I was dreaming at the time...

That's all I can really say on the topic, maybe it was just a recurring dream, I don't remember it enough detail.

I always shave in the same way - left to right, starting with the sideburns, then the cheek, then the left half of the moustache, then the chin, then under the chin, then the right cheek, then the right sideburn, then I finally remember the rest of the moustache, then the tongue, then the eyeball, and lastly the forelock


I have a kinda simular thing whereby I have wash my body in a certain order: left hand> left arm> left shoulder>left side of back, and so on. If I dont was in the excact order, I still feel 'dirty' when I've finished.

I do that so much, especially when I need to talk about summit with someone. I usually imagine I'm talking to whichever friend usually gives me the best advice in that area, or who plays devil's advocate the best. -Alttough the 'friend' maintains thier chracteristis, they are kinda 'frogi-fied'.


I think my major one has to be that if I step on the corner of a curb on the left side of the ball of my left foot, for example, I then need to step on something of equal size, and with equal pressure on the right side ball of my right foot, before that is, the feeling of thet initial step with the left foot fades. Preferable though on the next step.
Also if I dont step 'correctly' with the (eg) right foot, then I have to erm. I cant explain it any better than saying it's like patterns in poems, ie, a, b, a, c, b, c. I hope that makes sense. I have to equal the a's and b's etc, otherwse I get angy at my self. I usually ony remember upto about six per foot, as a particular feeling has usually faded by then, unless it was there was quite a lot of pressure. I only really do this when I'm stressed though.

Hmmmm - I do lots of odd things but I'm not sure I'd consider them obessive or compulsive.

When I'm on recreational drugs I HAVE to check all my jewellry. I think it's a paranoid thing where I'm always worried that one of my ear rings have fallen out or I've swallowed a tongue stud.

I think about a subject in my head and then start a conversation with someone half way through the topic. It stumps most people but my Mum seems to be the only one who realises that I've been having the conversation in my head and just didn't realised I hadn't vocalised it yet.

When I have no socks on, I absolutely have to have my second toe crossed over my big toe and my little toe crossed over my fourth toe. It makes me feels secure because I'm always worried about catching toes on something and ripping one off.

I have to have the duvet tucked between my legs when I sleep.

I also (like a lot here) have a very specific way that I wash myself in the shower. It is always head to toe. I dry myself the same way.

I constantly check for my wallet and lose my temper when I can't find it. I know it sounds weird, but it happens.

I can't have sex if either one of us is wearing socks. Just, no.

I have to have my goatee (got rid of the beard) completely symetrical. This takes a while to do sometimes...
