I do that too. I wait for the universe, and if it doesn't come and help me.. then I will do something.

Me too. leg jiggles and hair twirling. People tell me to GO at green lights. I must be on a different time dimension. I think it just turned green and should now move my foot to the gas...but the "GO" is like super fast and annoyed. Like they have been waiting for 10 minutes. I hate that. So, I patiently go or say "I'm going".

You sound like me!
All except the pear juice on bread part.... I laughed so hard at that
I play with my hair constantly. It's become sort of a subconscious thing now. I would always play with my dad's hair as a baby and the habit has followed me past my childhood and teenage years into my young adult phase. There is honestly no real, conscious reason why I do it, but I put it down to a feeling of comfort and 'being home'. . on some level.
I don't really know if it annoys people but I know that people are definitely aware of it. Like my housemate has commented on it a couple of times since i moved in at the beginning of the year. But she isn't really bothered by it
Also, when I'm in the car, i have a tendency to jig my leg up and down when i stop at the lights. THAT pisses people off
If there's anything else I remain largely unaware of it. I'll have to experiment, study myself up lol
I'll report back if I find anything.
I know a girl who wont have lemon in her tea. She thinks it has been touched too much by some stranger who prepared it. Why the lemon? Why single it out? Why not lettuce or tomatoes? I don't get it? I squeeze my lemon into my drink and say "look!" and take a drink... cracks me up every time.

Funny, I like to have everything disorganized, everything is on messy piles in my house, but I always know where everything is, I call it an organized chaos.
And i am paranoid with food, I always put my hand in front of my plate when someone’s talking to me on the table , and if some saliva comes out of their mouth into my plate , I separate the part of the food that it fell into , and I don’t eat that part lol , and I hate sharing food too.
Amazingly, I almost relate to what you are saying, except I would rearrange it in those orders as well as all others, even the extra tall one in the middle.

Well, I have a thing with items having to be in a certain position. I always go around and move things even if it's just half an inch. I'm not obsessive about it though. Probably because I can be lazy when I'm at home. But I do glance at it a lot while sitting on the couch thinking about how much it is bothering me that it's "off kilter". I usually move it eventually if I walk by it.
But I'm not a total neat freak though. It's mostly just objects in there right place. If I don't want to clean, I at least organize the mess! Like the dishes--if I don't feel like doing them, I'll at least put all the silverware in a cup. Cups inside of cups and stack the dishes, put bowls inside of bowls, etc. Same with laundry. It's usually all over the room but I feel better if I at least get it into its own pile.
If I am arranging objects of different sizes, I have to have the tallest ones on the left and then smaller to the right. Sometimes I'll ALLOW a taller object somewhere in the middle for variance but it can't be taller than the first object. But if there are objects on the same surface but on the opposite side (say a dresser for example) then I have to have the largest object starting from the side that corresponds to the side they are on. So if they are on the left side of the dresser, the tallest starts on the left and vice versa.
I think it's mostly that I like arrangement and organization more than cleanliness. Things look chaotic if they are just all over the place in no particular order.
Geeze, I am weird now that I say this out loud...hahahahaha
Di Vinci lol. Must be something to it then. Socks with holes... I put my feelers around it and I don't like it. Places for larger bugs and spiders to crawl in, so it's a no go for me.

Yer, there is nothing more exciting than "the sock lottery" in my opinion
Oh and when i said im all for holes in socks i should have been more specific.
Holes at the ends where toes could escape...HATE IT!
Holes around the rest of the sock...LOVE IT!
Hole by the heel...a grey area for me.
Take a gander at this:
The REAL history of the universe......
I dont fully understand it but somehow it all makes sense
I think I have MPD but I don't black out or whatever and lose time. And they are all named the same. But man can I change personalities on a dime.

I don't really have any like many of the ones described. I guess mostly I've grown up not trusting many people and didn't understand why until a few years ago.
Apparently, I've been diagnosed as having DID or alternate personalites. Much of which have been related to missing time events. What's weird about it is that many times others around me also had missing time.
Maybe they were just playin' and I couldn't have handled the truth anyway. One time I recall I somehow ended up on the Howard Stern show over the company phone and he eventually offerred me a job. Actually, he offered the job to one of my alters.
Now that I've recalled many of these missing time events, I was supposed to as-if know what they knew, such as foreign languages and possibly hypnosis as-if a hypnotist?
So, I guess it's mostly deluded quirks or um........Quarks

I categorize things. I'm not a neat freak, but I do like my spices alphabetized, and when I go grocery shopping, I sort like items into piles when I place them on the belt. I also have my closet organized by style of clothing (tshirts, button downs, jackets, sweaters...).
