If there's something like a container of sugar, salt, pepper or anything like that, once I've finished using it I have to shake it so the contents will be "all flat" and even on top. I can't stand the surface of the contents to be uneven.
All my dishes and cups are organized by color coding, size and use. If one is out of place...ooooo soooo much trouble will occur .... and no, I am not OCD...how can I be in a home full of little kids???? lol
Ever since I was a kid, I have loved to eat fried potatoes with hot, cooked chocolate pudding poured over the top of them...mmmmm...for some reason, none of my kids ever picked up on this habit, though, or my husband, lol...
lol same here...people just consider me weird. Oh I just thought of a good one. ppl think I'm weird because I'm a Preschool Teacher and I am a writer with a very morbid imagination but I could never harm a child!
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.
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.
I don't really know. I just know it would be unbearable to point it toward the right. 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 ). 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.
Thanks. The time off isn't because of the completion, though--it's because the economical (and also pure sine wave) generator broke down, and I'm stuck with the big gas hog until we get enough coin to install some wind power around here. Hopefully soon!
I tell ya, I give you a lot of credit for living out there. I went out to the Grand Canyon in October and it was bearable--low to mid 80's when we went. I certainly hope that you can come back for long stretches of time
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....
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. (And all this weirdness is related to ONLY pizza. Imagine the challenges of everything else in life. )
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.
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 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).
