Do you have any funny quirks??

Actually I have MANY....lol....but I think the most interesting one is that I need to know how a movie (or book) ends before I see (read) it.

Thats why I go to spoiler websites to read the entire plot of a movie I want to see, AND why I always read the last two pages of a book to see how it ends and only THEN do I read it....

LOL....thats not quirky, thats downright FLAKEY!....heehee.

Yes, spending way too much time in Interland during Office hours.

I have a bunch of weird habits when it comes to speaking.
I constantly spew out random quotes (from books, TV shows, or just lyrics) to answer questions, and half the time I don't make sense. When i'm not quoting, I speak in a hybrid of German/French/English and pick and mix words from the different languages (mostly English though, obviously).
I always use made-up words too.

Infact, i'm probably an horrendous person to hold a conversation with.

I minored in math in college & did all right, but my quirk is that I don't automatically know what 7+5 and 8+5 are. I always have to think & rethink those two combinations. It's like a scratch on the CD in my head. I must've been sick that day in elementary school or something.

Another quirk - I murder the word "rural" EVERY TIME I say it.

I don't like my food to touch each other on the plate and I eat one thing at a time.

I can't believe someone else does this!!!! I do the same thing. When going to fast food places I eat my Cheeseburger before I start my fries.

so you say "you can't handle the truth" and stuff like that? cool. I don't quote, but I like to use made up words too.

I like to open the sandwiches and eat the bread first, then the cheese and I leave the ham for the last.

when I'm eating things like M&M or nerds I like to clasiffy them in size and color, I always eat the small ones, or with colors that I don't like first, and then the big yummy ones.

I always leave a very small amount of food in the plate and I say "I'm full".. my mom gets mad when I say that

ROFLMAO!!.......

I'm exactly the OPPOSITE.
My food could arrive with each condiment(sp?) neatly placed and buy the time I start eating it my plate looks like a war zone....with everything mixed together - that's how I like it.

I have a problem with odd numbers for some reason. I prefer even ones. Also, when I'm eating a sandwich or something with filling sometimes I eat the insides first and then the outside part.

I have OCD--things have to be in proper alignment or it just drives me crazy. I stayed at a hotel in Atlanta and the toilet was in a corner & not aligned straight with the bathtub & sink & it bothered me the 2 days I was there. Place mats & pictures much be in line etc.

I have to eat my food together. I have to take a bite of burger and then eat a fry before I finish chewing my burger. I have to take a bite of steak and then immediately a bite of potato, or rice etc. I HAVE to have chips with a quesadilla or a burrito. If SOMEONE forgets to get me chips I cant eat these items

I have to kiss my cats before I leave the house. And I look for them to make sure they are there/inside even though I know there is no way they would get out, I have to see each of them and say goodbye before I shut the door and leave. Of course one of them knows I do this so she plays a game and hides from me when I am leaving.

Same. And I never drink anything until I've finished eating. I think it's disgusting when people put food in their mouths, then take a swig of Coke or something when the food's still in there.

Another quirk - I cannot sleep unless I have an eye mask on. The room could be absolutely pitch black, but I still wouldn't be able to sleep without the mask.

I do this all the time with important stuff. Like if I take my wedding rings off and put them on my ring holder (the only place I'll put them), I go back and check they're there at least twice. The worst is when I travel or fly. I always keep a little wallet/case with all my papers/tickets/cash/passports etc in it - I'm CONSTANTLY checking it to make sure that I havent lost or, or that anything has magically disappeared from it. That and re-checking my car door locks.

I have a noticable walk.
I slightly drag my right heel on every 3rd step.
People always know when I'm coming down the hall

And I dance to the musak in my store and I don't care who is watching (boys across the hall at GNC get a free show everyday )

I have a problem with random crunchy things in my food.

For example... I make tuna salad and egg salad with mustard and mayo only, and never relish or onion because I don't like running into random crunchy things in my sandwich. I won't eat my mom's potato salad because of the onions... celery I can see and not eat, but onions are invisible in potato salad.

I like hamburger and bologne and hot dogs, but not most meat in it's natural form - steak or poultry that's not still on the bone. I'll eat it if I must but I have to shred it and examine it all very carefully. I can't handle running into random crunchy gristle.

oh, and I also don't like things of a bouncy texture, like jello, gummy bears, and ham.

I hate wet paper, so my friends like to toss wet paper towel or tissues at me.

Opposite of Kristie, I will not eat any form of meat that is processed and/or stamped into something other than it's natural form.

I can touch my tongue to my nose and walk on my hands.

I hate the bottom of shoes...you could chase me for miles if I thought you were going to touch the bottom of a shoe to my skin ( and one of my friends did in high school cos she thought I was joking). Only worn outside shoes though, on dirty ground. I bought a pair of Nike Shox last week and I love them. I have only been wearing them inside when I work out at home. I think I will actually have to buy a separate pair for wearing to the gym and the track. Relatives stopped by the other day and I accidently wore them out in my back yard on my deck etc. I seriously debated with myself about whether they were "ruined". Seeing as I just had the patio laid and the deck is brand new it was deemed alright by the fucked up centre of my brain that controls this quirk/phobia.
