I have to have my TV volume on an even number if I can hear it at 11, it goes to 12.

My nervous twitch...I tap my thumb to the tips of my fingers; pointer, middle, ring, pinky, and back. (A really strange story about this "twitch". I am adopted. I have since met my birth family--they got married after high school and went on to have two sons--. Right after meeting them I went to watch one of my brothers play football. He was doing the exact same thing with his fingers while standing on the side lines.)

I can't stand any constant ticking sound. Clocks, drips, alarms, microwave reminders. They drive me nuts! The barely audible clock is the worst, it immediately sets my nerves on edge.

Is that where mine is coming from? Every time I put away my dishes my forks and spoons overflow their spots, more and more. It's been weird......

speaking of annoying sounds.
i cant stand the sound of crinkling bags when i am trying to watch a movie.
i can feel my blood pressure rise.

it seems like every time i put a movie on(which i admit, is a lot) thats when my wife decides she needs to screw with some sort of plastic bad. a chip bag or some #.
it drives me insane

The sound of a metal spoon or fork scraping on someone's teeth makes my hair stand on end. I will claw my way out of any room where someone is scraping a metal spoon against a metal pot. ARRRHGGHH!!!

Whenever I drink from a glass or ceramic cup I click the rim against my bottom teeth.

I think this stems from me reading somewhere that our teeth are our most sensitive sensors for hardness.

I don't know about you being the clumsiest. If there's anything that can get knocked over, I'll find it. Also, anything that can be tripped over or tangled up in. Not having feeling in my hands gets me another way. I drop things constantly. Oh, and I seem to hit my head about twenty times a day, at least.
As for weird quirks, I have a lot. One is I have to look under the toilet seat before I go number 2 (I'm sure you all wanted to know that lol). I guess it's to check for spiders. Another is I talk in my sleep. Some of it's off the wall stuff that people will tell me about when I wake up. Other times I speak some language that is definitely not English. My sister in law thinks it sounds Algonquin. She recorded it once when I was at a powwow. I'd been asleep for a while and started doing it. Weird stuff.

If you have children, I can tell you exactly where your silverware goes. File 13. The round file. Those absent minded little hoo hoo's go to scrape their plates and sometimes, just let go of the fork and don't even miss a beat. I have seen it happen more than once. One day, when I am old and living in their house, I am going to crap on their kitchen floor to return the favor. Then deny it.

I usually buy things in pairs. Mostly food stuff and personal hygiene things, except ultra-expensive or perishable items like milk and eggs. Otherwise, I'll always have two boxes of any cereal, two bottles of condiments, two cans of corn, two deodorants ( I love it when they come packaged in pairs!)

This one is probably a bit more universal than most of my others... But I don't watch TV proper. That is to say I do watch TV shows online, but never on a television.

I only have a few shows I like and I catch them via stream when I want.

The problem is that I often catch-up on my faves and end up trying to find a new show to fill in the blanks. This leads me into the land of "binge watching" some series I never knew existed and trying to cram 2 or 3 seasons into a single night. Then, until I am caught up, I'll do little else with my free time other than watch the show in question.

To day my most impressive feat: Binge watching Doctor Who - that was a trial by fire!

when eating food I never mix the items. Ie. I'll eat the cheeseburger first and not touch my fries. Then I'll eat the fries. Then finally the drink. Same thing for dinner meals. The sides first. then the entree. never mixing the two. then the salad last.

I have a bad habit of turning the lyrics to any song into a rap where I only rhyme mexican food items. ie i'll hum the macarena but replace all the words with rhyming mexican entrees. I never do it out loud, but it does make me wonder whats wrong with me.

I dont do the mexican thing but I often keep myself amused by trying to sing songs but with all the words from the line in the wrong order.

It does cause problems if I then try to sing the song normally.

If anyone wants to try I started with ding dong merrily on high and its the right time of year so why not give it a shot?

The singing thing... Yeah... I tend to take whatever tune is popular and it somehow morphs in my mind into something either politically incorrrect or outright obscene. Then I walk around singing it, my way, thinking that others will laugh.

Most do, some don't, and occassionally a fist ends up letting me know that others don't always appreciate my genius.

It's a shame that normal folks don't enjoy our genius.

I was nearly thrown off of a bus once for playing an imaginary trombone.

That's called being stoned...
I invented a culinary masterpiece known as the chili cheese waffle that way in college.


Haha i lol'd when i read that! I had the same inspiration to mash up fudge pop tarts into my vanilla ice cream. It was spectacular. Not as original as the chili cheese waffle though.

sides first starting with what i enjoy the least.
salad is always last.

You do realise that you just gave us an uneven list of five quirks, don't you?
