Laurenplusalex: Haha I love my computer nerd too! All of my biggest crushes in life have been on skinny, slightly nerdy guys with dark hair and glasses. My Fiance fits that to a T. So much more attractive to me than all the totally ripped dudes walking around at the gym that are “supposed” to be hot, for whatever reason!
I am learning Turkish so I put lots of the numbers I see into Turkish in my head and count in my head in Turkish. I guess that’s not so weird but it gets a little awkward when someone asks me what time it is and I start to say it in Turkish.
I am kind of obsessive about picking up crumbs and other debris from the floor at home. I call them my “particles.” Fiance says we should just get a Roomba.

Ditto on the not being able to poop in public thing too lol. Well, never mind I can, only if the coast is clear hehe.
Oh, & my dreams really affect me, I mean if I have a nightmare, It stays with me for a while. I just can’t stop thinking about it even though it’s not real. I think mainly since I’ve had a few instances where I would dream something then days later something eerily similar would happen. its only happebed a few times but still gets me.

It makes me feel better to see all these people with number obsessions. My feeling on numbers is hard to categorize – I used to prefer even because it’s symmetric but currently I see odd as being more symmetric because it’s centered around an axis of sorts (the middle number). The latter is why I need an even number of BMs, so that I’m that “axis”. And the volume on things must be a multiple of 5. I detest that I’m getting married in 2014 because it’s so close to 2015 which falls into both the need for an axis and being a multiple of 5.
annb9: “And to keep the “beat” or “rhythm” or whatever, I scrunch and un-scrunch my toes while I’m doing it.” This. Except it isn’t for counting something, it’s just for keeping a rhythm at all times. It can be any muscle.
And finally the one I think I’m most embarassed of – I have been “bouncing” since I was really young. I sit on a couch and bounce back and forth. I can’t not do it. There are very few people I can do it around because I’m so embarassed by it. So when pretty much anyone else is around I feel so antsy because I can’t do it. Oh, and all couch selections are conditional upon bouncability.

Bebealways: I pretty much only drink water- ever since my mom switched me from a bottle to a cup, apparently. I got a little better when I got older- I decided a red cherry icee was okay. Now I will have a glass of wine if I have to be polite (though I don’t enjoy it), strawberry margaritas are okay if just right, and I’ve tried some mixed drinks but I don’t like them. Fiance made me hot chocolate made with water and it was okay. But I still have never had soda or milk or juice or coffee or even flavored water- and anything carbonated (even water) is a no go. Coincidentally, I almost always win “Never have I ever” So I have only ever had dry cereal like Aquaria:
I am a little obsessive about random things- like I always have to neatly fold fast food wrappers before I throw them away, I can’t have different foods touch (though mashed potatoes and gravy are okay because they are supposed to be together), and I eat one item on my plate at a time from least favorite to favorite.

Birdi: You can’t dump in public?!!!! C’mon! It is so liberating!
stephee: I used to count signs, letter, etc too, on my fingers “S-P-E-E-D L-I-M-I-T” 10 digits. All the time. My mom put me on Paxil for 2 years because of THAT compulsive behavior.
Nowadays, hmm I eat yogurt every single morning with a baby spoon.

lealorali: LMAO! I can’t do it. One time someone from work made split pea soup and I had few bites..about 20 mins later my insides were rumbling. I was playing Russian roulette with my farts. I ran upstairs with a roll of TP to one of our model condos and shit my brains out. Something similar to the dumb and dumber bathroom scene. It. Was. HORRIBLE!!!

Birdi: I can’t stop laughing!!! I am a high school teacher so if I ever had an “episode” like that, I would be in DEEP SHIT. Luckily I have a stomach of steel. I’ve never even slipped a fart in class.

I have to have ALL labels facing the right way this includes my fridge and pantry. People love to move them around just to see if I’ll notice.

Another one here that dislikes pooping in public. I have IBS, so when I have to go then I have to go, but I despise it. I will literally wait until I’m seconds away from pooping on myself, and I’m actually physically shaking from trying to hold it.
Even at home, if theres people around I will try my best to hold it in, and if I cant, then I turn on the radio really loud to make sure they cant hear anything. Its pretty ridiculous.
Another weird thing is my huge dislike of phones. I have to prepare myself for probably about an hour before I can get the courage to call someone. I had a panic attack the first time I had to call in from work. It was awful.
And I hide whenever someone comes to the door. Even if I’m in plain sight of the door and I know they can see me, I will still pretend like I’m invisible.
I cannot stand my hands being wet. Even if its just water. It grosses me out.
