      Oh, and she also had a thing about a single string hanging off a piece of clothing.  She HAD to pull it off!  Even if it was on a complete stranger! HA!!

    I have to make sure pizza or pie slices are pointing off toward my left, rather than pointing toward me.  If you ever notice, a lot of people have to point these triangle foods at themselves; and that, to me, looks kind of self-centered for some reason.   lol

        lol   Since (according to some people) I'm weird enough to also need to eat pizza with a knife and fork, that point is there when I'm positioning the plate.   It is kind of funny to watch a few people in a group with pizza slices or pie.  Most (I think) will turn the plate until it's pointed at their belly before they begin to eat.   lol

        lol   I don't really know.  I just know it would be unbearable to point it toward the right.  smile  I think it may have something to do with which hand I use the knife with (my left).  I guess that's probably it (now that I ponder it  smile).   The other thing about pizza is "some of us" (most?) go for the point first, and that would involve dragging my sleeves across the pizza to get the point with my left handed knife.  Here's something "wild and crazy":  If anyone else has to go for the point first we should all try leaving the point and going for some place along the side first.   smile

    It would be easier to answer if the question was, "What do I do that others DON'T consider to be weird?"

    Okay, okay.  Ummm...I read.  No, I mean, I READ.  Years ago, working as a commercial insurance underwriter complete with (yuch!) necktie and pinstriped suit, I'd be standing at a Men's Room urinal, taking care of business with one hand while reading an insurance file (my job at the time) held in the other hand. 

    Guess it would have been a lot weirder, though, if I'd tried using BOTH hands for either one of those activities....

    Lisa HWposted 7 years ago

    mtsi1098, now you're making it challenging.  Upon thinking about it, I realize if the no-crust pizza were rectangular rather than square, I'd have to have a narrow end nearest my belly.  With a rectangle or square, I'd most likely have to move to the next determinant of how to position the pizza - the way the cheese was melted.  The heaviest concentration of cheese would need to be farthest away from me, and I'd probably aim to have as much symmetry (on the sides) as possible.   smile   (And all this weirdness is related to ONLY pizza.  Imagine the challenges of everything else in life.  smile )

    I used to watch "Friends" on tv. One day, Monica had to pick up the wedding gown for Ross's future bride. She tried it on, and then she and Phoebe ended up wearing wedding dresses and throwing their bouquet in the apartment. It made them feel better when they were feeling a little down before.

    I thought that was a good idea. I don't have a wedding dress, but I have several nice formals that I bought at a thrift store for various events, and I have no problem with putting them on and wearing them around the house once in a while. It feels good to me.

    I always walk down the stairs left foot first, and take unnecessarily shorter steps to keep up to an even number of steps when walking, going up/down stairs, and never step on cracks. When I read a word or look at a sentence or object, I trace the outlining edges and number items that I see until they form an even number. Really stupid, I know. I hate it when people put the toilet paper roll on so the *tail* hangs BEHIND the roll. ARGH!! I am truly a perfectionist.

    You cannot visit my house unannounced- my nose always itches before someone crosses through my front door. Left side- female visitor, right side - male visitor, both sides- more than one person.

    My second x-husband used to get so mad because he couldn't sneak back to the house and catch me doing whatever his imagination was telling him!
    I do not have to be at home to know someone just showed up.

    Crazdwriter - I can't make out your avatar. It kinda looks like you're eating your cat's tail but the tail's in front of the cat! smile

      LMAO I know I actually lightened it up because it was darker and saw that too. But the black kitty Shadow is "nursing" on Sasha the torti cat. I'll be posting about that in a hub tomorrow. about the nursing thing that is.

    I only do what the voices in my head tell me to do. I just wish they would stop arguing so much.

    I don't mind going to the movies alone. My family thinks that is weird.

    I zub.  I don't know anyone else who does this.  I go, "zub, zub, zub, zub,' when I'm having trouble with the computer.  Believe it or not, it helps! And, it keeps me from swearing too much.  If I'm saying "zub, zub, zub....", I'm NOT saying,@#$$%< ***, !@@#$%%!!!!"  Of course, it will drive everyone else at work COMPLETELY CRAZY!  (Maybe that's a side benefit.  I don't know).
