Your Quirks and Why-Do-I-Do-Thats
« on: 25 Dec 2011, 22:46 »

I know I have plenty, but what made me think about odd or pointless things I do was a few seconds ago when I went to take some pills. I poured them into my left hand. Then, for no reason, I moved them to my right hand before putting them in my mouth.

You're right handed, right?  Pour with the right (into the left), then put them into your mouth with your right.  It's the more accurate hand for you.  I've seen people try to use their "off" hand for things.  You could actually miss your mouth...

Doesn't explain why I always put soap in my right (dominant) hand, and shampoo in my left.

You use the right hand to squeeze/pour the shampoo into the left as receptacle?

Wife gets on me about squeezing the tube from the bottom/middle instead of the end. Squeezing from the end is too awkward for me.

So squeeze it back from he end when you're done using it. 


She'll never know...   :evil:

We got these little squeeze thingies that you slip over the tube that keeps it squeezed up from the end, and you can squeeze the middle of what's left (it's fatter that way), and then you just slide the thing up every once in a while.

I do the knee bounce thing a lot, esp when I am tired or focusing, I don't notice it.

I know I have many weird quirks but I can't remember what they are until someone points them out and I say, "Don't judge me."

Re: toothpaste - Before I open the tube, I push all the toothpaste up towards the top, open the tube, then squeeze from the middle. Unless it's almost empty, then I squeeze from the top. Squeezing from the bottom seems dumb and awkward.

I'm not sure why they felt the need to mention that the tube is not included. I wouldn't know what to do with a tube containing toothpaste, cream, ointment, and etc.

You know those key-like tools that come with tins of sardines, which you use to roll up the cover? A similar tool can be used to roll up empty portions of tubes of ointment, the ones that come in a metal (aluminum, tin, I dunno) tube that doesn't spring back after you squeeze it. But you can no longer do that with toothpaste because all of those have plastic tubes now.

I like the feeling of muscle cramps in my feet, so I'll make them happen on purpose sometimes.
Don't those, you know, hurt like hell?

Oh, I just thought of a quirk: For some reason, I like bouncing the cartilage parts of my knuckles and finger joints against my front teeth. From that description you'd think it makes me look like I punch myself in the mouth repeatedly, but it's not that dramatic.

Mister D Nomms has reminded me of one of mine.
I always say, "Sammy Davis Jr" when I mean, "Robert Downey Jr". I know they're two completely different people when I think about it but if Robert's name comes up in conversation, I will say Sammy's name. It's reached the point my closer friends won't correct me on it because they know who I meant, so they just hear the right thing even if I don't say it.
I don't say Robert's when I mean to say Sammy's though.

Restless leg in both legs, can be done voluntarily but often shows up on its own.

Am left-handed, but was taught to do most things right-handed.  I use a fork and spoon in right hand, though I can use them equally well in left hand with practically no training.  Oddly, I cut my food (ex. steak) with the knife in left hand but when cutting up food to cook, cut it with the right hand.  When I learned to use chopsticks some time ago, I could use them equally well in either hand (at the same time, too), but decided to stick with my left hand since that's my dominant hand.  Now I can barely use them in my right hand.  Go figure.

I stroke my chin a lot, while in deep thought, making decisions, listening in to a conversation, etc.

I twist my neck to crack the joints, even when the joints don't need popping.  Usually happens when I'm irritated or feel out of my league.

I overanalyze EVERYTHING.  Even when I try and stop myself from doing it, it just happens until I either find an acceptable solution/answer or just overload myself.

I have odd eating quirks which drive my mother bonkers whenever we have lunch together. Why she's bothered by my way of eating is beyond me.

I eat the crust on pizza first then I eat around the pepperoni (if there are any). I don't know why.

When I eat fries, I eat them in pairs. Near the last dozen or so, I pair them up according to size on my plate (or burger wrapper) before I eat them.

Muffins, I tear the top from the stub, eat the stub first then the top.

My friend Cory eats sandwiches by taking them apart and eating one thing at a time. Pizza too. The part that baffles me is that he'll actually make the sandwich and assemble it all nice and then take it apart.

I eat sammiches (another quirk?) by eating the crust first. I spin the sammich around while eating the crust and then keep spinning it so it's roughly the same dimensions throughout eating.

I do eat for the same reason I eat my food from least favourite thing to most favourite thing. Most of the time if I go right for the thing I enjoy the most I won't be hungry enough or just plain not bothered for the rest.

Same here.  I used to eat a slice of layer cake by carefully eating all the cake, leaving a frosting skeleton...

While my mother thought it was weird, my father admired the precision it took to do it. 

Now I eat it in such a way as to have roughly equal amounts of frosting with each bite of cake, which is a bit harder than it sounds...


I actually have a lot more OCD tendencies than I let on, which is one reason I hate  to have other people do things for me - they won't be done the way I  do them, and so won't be good enough.  Fortunately, I've learned to let most of it go. 

Most  of it.

I eat multicolored things in "color order"...


First, I sort them all by color. Then, I order them by how many there are. If there are 5 red ones, 5 blue ones and 3 green ones, I eat a red one first. Because I like blue the best and there should be more of them than red. And I don't like ending up with the same number for a different color. And they're all laid out in my hand in a triangle. Then, I eat one of each. Then I do that again. And again, etc. Until there is only one left.  If I can, I do it in ROYGBIV order....but only when I get really lucky.

I do this with M&Ms, Skittles, Lucky Charms, etc....(except I don't have as much control over the arrangement of the cereal and if I take too long it gets too soggy for me to eat....That's more of a "I like you the least so I'm going to eat all of you first. Then, I end up with a bowl full of marshmallows. YUM.)


Food is tons of fun.  :-P

Oddly, I cut my food (ex. steak) with the knife in left hand but when cutting up food to cook, cut it with the right hand.
Same here, I'm right handed though.

Yup, same here as well...
Also... with every single meal that I have... I always save the best part in the end if it is possible to do so. Well, not really... If I eat let's say... Steak with rice or something. I eat everything pretty much equally until I'm almost done with the meal... Then I would just save my favorite part (a bit steak) for the last bite as I want to "save the flavor" for a longer time or something.

I don't eat things in color order, but I do eat them in pairs - two at a time, and of matching colors. The number takes precedence over the color (I hate odd numbers), though I prefr that they match. If I have an odd number and leftover orphans from other colors, I pick a color that is closest to another on the color wheel and go from there.

Anyone ever match their shirts (or pants) with the same color hanger?

Red shirt on a red hanger, blue shirt on a blue hanger...

I did that every once in a while, but I switched to those fancy fuzzy hangers and they're effing expensive so i bought the cheapest color. Now all my blue shirts match the hanger.



Oh. another thing I do...this one is ridiculous and I wish I could stop but it just is not happening. We live in a basement apartment and the laundry room/storage area is on the opposite side of our front door. Whenever I come back from doing laundry or getting something out of storage I run back to the door, look behind me and then run across and into my apartment and lock the door. I used to do this coming up from the basement in my parents house.

I remember the storage room from one of my old apartments. It was awful. It really was a combination of this:



But the walls where like this:



So I don't blame you if you run because you get freaked out ro something.

That really reminds me of a corridor out of Silent Hill.

Ahhh, that is scary! In ours the laundry section is a huge open space, but storage is just like what you posted (and it's pretty dimly lit). Plus, we have a bizarro third room that is open (but dark) that attaches to a corridor that leads to the other side of the building. Just....too many places for things to hide.  :|

The only thing that I found cool about it (but it was also really scary when you think about it) was the door... It was almost like that cliche door in the banks that have a ridiculous amount of money. You know... really heavy steel doors that you have to close with two big steel levers or something.

Just think about someone closing the door... urgh... and since it was underground, the constant eco and sounds from above didn't help at all.

I think about this any time I go into the big fridge at work. I always turn the light in it on, even though it barely does anything, and leave one of the big trolleys in the doorway.

I always feel the need to jump into bed after I turn off the light or run to my room if I turn off the hallway light. Guess it's a primal thing that just sticks with some people.
