I have a fear of bugs....i know, most people do....but I seriously become incapacitated around bugs. I had a panic attack in the car over the summer , got in a fetal position covered my head with my hands and screamed at the top of my lungs b/c my mom said she saw a spider. I wish I could get over the phobia, b/c it really hinders alot of things I do...if I see one I become frozen with fear, I won't even go in my basement b/c my husband saw a cricket down there over the summer.

I have mild OCD, so I do many things that seem odd to other people.

One weird fact: I have broken my right pinkie toe so many times that it no longer moves. Yay for pointe shoes =)

My cat must think it's a dog too, it always has its tongue out, hates catnip, and drools way too much. Oh, Chairman Meow, you kinda rule.
Chairman Meow? I LOVE IT! laugh

Yeah, she's cool like that.

I can visualize and remember strings of numbers, but I cannot remember what my wife wants me to pick up at the store on the way home from work. I can tell you the numbers on every credit card in my wallet, I can tell you every number of every credit card/ID in my wife's purse, her SSI number, and those of my children. I'm screwed, however, if I am asked to stop at the store and get three things. If I don't write them down, I cannot remember what I was supposed to get. It is a 1/2 blessing, 1/2 curse!

I'm terrified of butterflies. I'm not sure why and they always seem to want to land on me.

I used to be OCD about washing my hands......100's of times a day I'd do it, lotion made me feel "dirty" and quite often my knuckles would just bleed from being so dry......I got over it though, but it was a year or so of my life that I did that.

I have noticed that in a public bathroom I will use the same stall every time I need to potty. Missing chunks of paint, familiar writings on the wall, and crude graphics were what made me notice.

I still have hard time in English (especially in speaking) even if I studied it for more than 10 years.

Many people's whose native language is English have a difficult time speaking English. You're doing a great job!

Haha! See? I wrote "people's whose" which is entirely incorrect! **distracted by Project Runway**

Thanks smile

What is the correct way to put it then? I even don't know the difference of which, whom and whose. embarassed

All my movies have to be in alphabetical order, but not mixing videos and dvds.
Books in a series have to be in order.
I turn the tv sound level to 0 before turning it off. If I turn it off before doing that, I will turn it back on to do so. This doesn't apply to the iPod dock though.
Everything in the car needs to be turned off, before switching off the ignition (fan, wipers, demister, radio).

My pinky toe is an inch shorter than my ring finger toe. I can't fall asleep without music playing. I hate the quiet, it drives me crazy.

When I was younger, I had to always start walking with my left foot, and if the flooring surface changed, my left foot always had to be the first one to step on the new floor. After years, I've mostly broken myself of this habit, but every now and then I'll stop short so that my left foot can take the first step on a new floor.

I have have a big hearing loss (80% or so) since I was like 4...but most don't know because I can read lips.

I found out I see the world of colors differently and some not at all. Example the only number I can see in this test is #25. The rest just looks like colored dots in a circle frown

I like washing clothes, I like folding clothes, but I HATE putting them away. There's a pile of folded clothes sitting on my dresser right now....

One that isn't mentioned on this list....The bills in my wallet (or register when I worked at a register) had to be facing the same directions...larger bills first (not that I have many of those)

Some words will make me seriously squeamish. Just a few that make me quiver are: fleshy, moist and sinewy.

My buddy hates the word 'girth', so we use it as often as possible.

I hate the words oozy, ooey, and gooey. I also hated the French word for 'egg'
February 23, 2012 7:48 PM
You're not alone... I only see 25 and 56! LOL

I know words in Russian that I don't know in English.

I have to check every grape for coloring, hardness, and bruises before I put it in my mouth.

I hate squishy grapes. angry

I do not use escalators.

Was pushed from top of escalator as a child, falling...falling...hit hard, on the floor,and i have escalator teeth scars on the front of my leg where it shredded my skin down to the bone as it scraped me on the way down.

Good thing elevators are everywhere.

Me too! Although now that I'm married and pushing 40, it doesn't get near the response it used to, lol.

I get nervous getting on/off escalators
I get anxious almost claustrophobic in elevators withtoo many people in them.

And I can flip my fingers and make them look like they have no bones. Cool party trick.
