I watched Amelie (French movie) the other day and found myself relating to her in so many ways. Especially when she sticks her hands in the bag of beans and gets a little tiny kick out of it. It feels sooo good!!! Weirdo!
I find myself on a daily basis doing things I imagine are quite weird. I think I do them out of mental boredom (or just plain weirdness)
For example, every time I use the microwave I set it to a time, they quickly do something else (wipe down the sink, go to the bathroom) then race back in and hope I get to it just before it beeps. It’s especially satisfying if I get to it and stop it right when it hits 1. It makes me feel like I’m in the special services as a Bomb Diffuser or something equally cool.
What weird and wonderful things do you do in life that makes you question your normalcy?

On the rare occasion that I eat candy, I always eat them in pairs and of different colors (m&ms, skittles, reese’s pieces, etc) I don’t know why, and I’ve tried to eat three at a time or two blue ones, but it makes my skin crawl. So odd…
And I LOVE Amelie- I always watch it in French too!

well I do a lot of weird stuff.
i also do the microwave thing, EVERYTIME.
I also count everything, in 5’s. So, there are two cups on the coffee table, so I cont them: 5, 10…
I also count edges of everything in 5’s. So, lets say there is a painting hanging on the wall…thats 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30. Its so hard to explain without showing. I have been doing that since I was a kid.
I cannot really think of anythign else right now…but I do so much weird stuff…LOL

My Fiance makes fun of me because I’m very clumsy. I’m always getting hurt. He probably hears me say, “Ouch!” like 20 times a day. And when I go grocery shopping, I have to have everything organized to produce, meats, fruits…. My Fiance tries to mix it up to get on my nerves. And I don’t like odd numbers, unless its a 3. He says I have OCD. Lol

I talk to myself sometimes. I buy things in pairs sometimes too. When I put mustard on my sandwiches, it must be in a smiley face.

Its funny that you mention the microwave thing because I do that too. So glad I am not the only one.
I don’t know if this is wierd or quirky but my fiance thinks its hilarious. The way I pronounce words always makes him laugh. Its hard to explain because obviously you can’t hear me but he claims that I have an accent because of the way I say things like umbrella.

@turkey22: lol… my Fiance does the same thing to me! He half Austrian and I can not pronouce schnitzel. And even though I’m mexican, I don’t speak spanish and he makes fun of me because he says I have an accent with certsin things I say. He says,” how do you have an accent when you don’t even speaks spanish.” Then he cracks up. :-/

OH! I also listen to the radio at specific volumes in the car. It can be on 8, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 22, or 25. I have absolutely NO reason for those numbers.

Microwave thing here too! I can’t just stand around and wait for it.
I eat M&Ms, Skittles, etc. in a certain color order. Least favorite color of the bunch to most favorite.
SO makes fun of the way I eat Combos, you know those disgusting (delicious) cheese-like filled cracker or pretzel barrels. I bite off as much of the outside shell as I can before eating the “cheese”. Since he makes fun of me for it, I’ve learned to just pop the whole thing in my mouth and bite it weirdly from there. Teehee.

When singing along to the radio
I will sing with the same accent the singer does (Human League – I’m rocking a terrible English accent)
I will sing along with Nena’s 99 Luft balloons even though I do not speak German. I have no idea what I’m singing.
same with Feliz Navidad. I don’t speak Spanish.
If it’s a duet I will sing only one part.

I don’t like my food to touch so I will sacrafice some food to use as a dam if there is something runny on my plate. If a pea rolls into the mashed potatoes I don’t eat it. Ok not quite that extreme but you get the picture! SO thinks it is hilarious and teases me and then I remind him that he likes cheese but will only eat it “on the side” he gets some interesting looks at Subway when we order. Oh and he won’t go through the drive-thru at fast food joints.
