haha omg I love threads like this. Let’s all reveal our true selves.
I am addicted to aquaphor on my lips, cracking my knuckles and picking the gunk out of my cats’ and dog’s eyes! THe last one is so gross, but I think them having that crap in their eyes is grosser!

I’m a Q-tip junkie too !. I offer to clean my Fiances or family members ears all the time. They think Im nuts but I can’t stand the thought of earwax in visible sight.
@MrsNeutrino: Have you ever tried ear candeling?

I count everything like a weirdo. It doesn’t over take my life and I don’t recount things once I have counted them, but it’s pretty strange. I know how many tile are in the kitchen backspalshes at everyone’s house that I know LOL.

Cleaning my BlackBerry. I keep alcohol wipes, cutips, and toothpicks next to my couch so I can clean it. I seriously cannot use it unless it has been cleaned. I am always cleaning it at work too, makes people crazy.

Tweezing my eyebrows. I cannot stop. I don’t over-pluck but i tweeze every day. I read once that Courtney Cox has the same obsession and that made me feel better:)

I’m majorly addicted to burt’s bees lipbalm – it has to be the original peppermint kind. When I was in sixth grade, I was addicted to carmex and put it on my lips every ten mins it seemed… and I became immune to it. I’m terrified of ever becoming immune to burt’s bees.

I pick at stuff. Scabs, hangnails, peeling sunburn…anything my fingers think “shouldn’t be there”.
Whenever I’m on the road I always look for interesting license plate letters. Like my mom’s old car was FEB. One day when she picked me up from school, the car behind her was MAR. I looked to see if the car ahead was JAN, but no such luck, lol. If the letters aren’t interesting in themselves, I make car nicknames or other word combos out of them. I’ve done it since I was a kid; my dad’s old license plate was WPJ and I came up with “wet pajamas”. Mom thought it was hilarious.

I have a potato obsession.
and not JUST potatoes.. potatoes done a particularly childlike and bizarre way. First I bake a potato, cut it in half, and put both sides face down on the plate. Then I smush out the potato insides, fold the skins in half with butter, salt and pepper inside and set aside. Next, I make mashed potatoes on my plate using my fork, with more butter, salt and pepper. I could honestly eat them for every meal, every day.
it embarrasses my husband so much that he made me promise to eat my potatoes like a normal person when we’re in public. 🙂 I’ve been doing it that way since I was a child, and to be honest I’m in my late twenties and have no intentions to stop.

I pick the skin off of my lips. How gross is that? It’s gross. I like picking off the rough parts. Chapstick doesn’t help either. I’ll pick them until they bleed. Darling Husband smacks my hand when I reach up, LOL!

scratching, I have really bad problems with dry dry itchy skin and can’t stop sometimes until I bleed. Fiance has to stop me if I’m doing it in bed.
picking my nose (oh man, I’m embarrassed to admit that!), I try to keep it to myself and not in public
salt cravings, I love myself some soy sauce, some saltines, anything of the sort sometimes

@melodicsighs1: I’m addicted to Burt’s Bees too but I can deal with any kind. I actually do find that if I use the same kind enough it seems to stop working. Luckily though they make enough different kinds that I can cycle through them. I cannot stand to have my lips be dry.

I crack my knuckles (and my back, though that’s mostly pain relief), bite my nails, pick at scabs and bite my lips. Ugh.

Love the feel of stickey things like tape or a sticker. It is weird but I like the tackey feeling in between my fingers and I keep playing with it.
