Does anyone else have any strange little habits that they treat as entirely normal?
I have this thing where if i spit into a sink or the shower, i have to spit it into the very centre of the plug hole or i'll just keep doing it until i do lol... and if i see a word on tv then i'll concentrate on certain letters until the word disappears or i look away from the screen... as they are good luck! ...for instance the word 'Above' .. the best letter in that is A as its the best grade in school...S and Y are also good but D,E,F,G and U are bad! (like bad grades) lol i hate myself
And when i was a kid i used to think to myself 'if i dont make it to the next streetlight before the next car passes me, something bad will happen to my family' so id end up running all the way home!
Crazy, probably, but to me entirely logical!!!
Laugh at me and then tell me urs

I have a tendency to unconsciously wring my hands or rub them together... i don't generally notice i'm doing this, but if i'm not smoking a cigarette or typing then my hands generally find something to do with themselves.
i used to be really obsessive-compulsive when i was several years younger; if i touched something with one hand i always had to touch it with the other too (which was awkward and hard to pass off sometimes), but i've managed to do away with these impulses as part of the training of the will with which I busy myself most of the time.

Harlan Pepper: I used to be able to name every nut that there was. And it used to drive my mother crazy, because she used to say, "Harlan Pepper, if you don't stop naming nuts," and the joke was that we lived in Pine Nut, and I think that's what put it in my mind at that point. So she would hear me in the other room, and she'd just start yelling. I'd say, "Peanut. Hazelnut. Cashew nut. Macadamia nut." That was the one that would send her into going crazy. She'd say, "Would you stop naming nuts!" And Hubert used to be able to make the sound, he couldn't talk, but he'd go "rrrawr rrawr" and that sounded like Macadamia nut. Pine nut, which is a nut, but it's also the name of a town. Pistachio nut. Red pistachio nut. Natural, all natural white pistachio nut.

Oh .. and I NEVER whistle in the dark. Never. No one should. It brings ghosts.
If I'm with someone and they whistle while it's dark ... I get upset.
