I think it's sorta weird. I freak out if I get sticky stuff on my hands, like clay (watching me in my ceramics class was hilarious, every couple minutes or so I was wiping my hands clean), but I can make kisses with a  guy and not wig out. Kissing is dirtier than clay, I think.

Honestly?  I don't think that's weird.  You make kisses with whoever because you want to.  Sticky stuff on the hands, at least to me, attracts things, and I touch pretty much everything with my hands, sometimes including my food.  Yes, I wash them first, but it's still the "ick" factor involved.

I like to wash blood off before it gets sticky.  Fresh and squicky is okay, but ewww when it starts to dry.  Other bodily fluids (and solids and semisolids) are just things I have to tolerate, but I wash them off ASAP.

As far as clay goes...

Tried slicking your hands with water first before handling it?  Or wearing gloves?

Do either of these help?

Sorry to sidetrack the thread.

Blood has to be washed off right away. Gross gross gross. I'm always afraid I'll accidentally touch something, and get blood on it.

I've tried the gloves, it doesn't work because I can't find any non-latex gloves that actually fit my hands, if the gloves are too big they leave weird marks in the clay. And slicking my hands down with water does help a little, but sometimes makes the clay too wet to work it right.

I wish I would eat things with my hands, I am getting tired of weird looks from people at lunch because I cut food, like burgers or hot dogs, up and eat them with a fork. But I also get weird looks if I wipe my hands off with a napkin every couple seconds. I also look at every bite, to make sure there's nothing on it that there shouldn't be.

But my room is a complete pigsty. Whut teh eff?

*cough* on track stuff...on track stuff...erm. I got nothin'.

Forgive me, but I noted no one "tee hee"ing anywhere.

At the risk of taking the whole thing FAR too seriously, did it ever occur to you that the people here (myself included) might have far more problems than they let on? And that a vacuous "tee hee" might not be the last word? I mean, I might go into how I also have Asperger's and that makes it really hard to relate to people, and to pull myself out of my thoughts and get on with life, but why the hell would I do that on a forum full of people I don't even know? Oh wait. I just did. Tee hee.

I'm really sorry if you've had to put up with airheads like that on a regular basis, but not everyone is one of them.

[/rant]
The "tee hee" ire was more of a general thing to denote the usual tone of the things said in various places - not a specific thing said here. ...Which could really be said about my whole comment/rant there.

It's not so much anything said here in particular, just the way these kinds of conversations inevitably seem to go when OCD is mentioned. People read a few QC comics or watch a few episodes of Monk and then they think they have OCD because they wondered if they were a cyborg once or because they prefer it when their food doesn't touch.

And really? I put up with airheads like that everywhere I go. If my OCD is brought up, people try to "relate" by telling me how they alphabetize their CD collections (as if that's anywhere close to it). Even in totally non-OCD forums/conversations, some bonehead tends to pop out some cliche comment about how "I'm so OCD I... *fill in the blank with some idiotic thing here*" Idiotic Twilight fans are now running around proudly proclaiming they have OCD - "Obsessive Cullen Disorder". I've even heard someone say they had "Obsessive Christ Disorder". That's all what the "tee hee" was summing up. It's all just such blatant and idiotic disregard for the suffering OCD actually causes.

I'm sure you've noticed by now, I've got a bit of a chip on my shoulder about these things. The internet'll do that to ya, I guess.

Like I said in the first post, ridiculous things like that are, in my opinion, no better than making light of quadriplegics and trying to "relate" to them with tales of woe about your top-shelf-reaching difficulties.

And if this conversation doesn't go that way? All the better.

Anyhow, it's like wargrafix said. Everyone has quirks. Everyone. And about 98% of them have ONLY that.

Bottom Line: I was ranting about the tendencies I've witnessed. Not to/at anyone here.

I'll admit I overreacted. I do apologize for that.  :|

I've been bothered by inconsistency in Hannelore lately.
In http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=942 she is fine (more or less) with Dora brushing her hair and covering her ears, but then freaks out when Marten covers her ears in http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1298
Also, it seems that Hanners is showering in http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=632 but in http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1321 she finds the idea of using another person's shower terrifying.

Well, at least with the shower, it seems she's just scrubbing herself in the bathroom in the first strip, not showering. Not that scrubbing yourself in a public restroom is, er, sanitary. Hell, I don't even enter the places. I seriously just go home if I have to pee.

Of course, if you have to scrub, you have to scrub.

And I noticed the ear thing, too... Although Dora's almost motherly with Hannelore and takes care of her in a lot of different strips. It's possible she sees Dora as "safe" and is able to let her do things other people can't. For instance, some people I can hug without a problem. Others, I would need a hazmat suit and some Xanax just to think about it. OCD rarely makes sense, really.

I still don't feel right about the underwear-on-the-head thing, though. No amount of detergent really makes things "clean"... :/

Maybe Hannelore became unable to take a shower at someone else's place after being traumatized by finding a hair in Marten and Faye's shower when she was staying there while her apartment was filled with her mom's accounting records. Anyone have the strip number? I can't find it offhand.

Edit: 967.

Marten is a boy. Same as boy laundry is gross, boys are kind of gross. Or at least, I'm betting that's what Hannelore thinks.

also, she is not showering she is SCRUBBING HER SKIN OFF. seeing as how the bathroom at coffee places usually do not have showers.

as for the other one, Marten pretty much lunged his hands at her ears unexpectedly, which is a little different twhen there is someone brushing your hair and you know is behind you

Seems a good place to hang a funny story from last night.

Was at a bar watching a show. The girl on stage was singing a quirky little song about being "weird", one line for example is "My friends think I'm strange, but not in that cute way."

So the stage is along the back wall, and off to one side is the hallway to the restrooms.

A guy walks out of the hallway perfectly in time to the line: "I hope you washed your hands, because that in particular really freaks me out."

The whole crowd's eyes turn to him, he holds up his hands and nods vigorously.

Noticing the audience reaction, the singer slowly turns to him, not missing a beat. "Are you SURE?"

Then pretty much the whole room broke down laughing.
