I just rememberd that when I was younger I used to love sitting in front of the washing machine watching the laundry go round and round for the roughly 2 hours it took to wash it. I stopped about 8 years ago, I still can't believe I was able to this. I found it to be so intersting. I especially love the spin, it sounds like a jet! On the plus side, other than wasting my time staring through a glass hole, I learned a lot about doing laundry. When we moved from Yugoslavia to Canada though, I was unpleasantly suprised to see these top loading "washing machines", which I dislike to this day.
Do you have unusual stuff to share simmilar to this?

Well, I've already mentioned that I put peanut butter in my oatmeal, can't eat it without it. I also LOVE the smell of an airconditioner (a window unit). I could stand in front of one for hours and just smell it! I'm sure there are other things, but I can't think of them. My dad does a lot of weird stuff. He shifts his car, and it's an automatic, and constantly taps his rearview mirrow when he drives. I think he's obsessive-compulsive. Riding in the car with him for an hour could drive a person crazy.

I watch plane after plane do pushback procedures at the airport and I never get tired of it. I also go into the airport employee lot and climb on top of a sticky old dumpster just so I can get shots of planes taxiing toward the fence head on without obstructions.

I used to have this obsession with vacum cleaners, which now I could care less about. I also used to sit on top of the washer and open and close the door. I did a lot of weird stuff when I was little.
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

When I want to sneeze, I try not to, because once i took a hankie when I felt like the sneeze was coming, and as I inhaled, the hankie stuck in my throat and I almost choked to death. So, I try to hold my breath to avoid sneezing in public without a hankie and I have tears in my eyes and I get a reddish color on my face and everyone says it looks weird...

When I was little, I was obsessed with stuffed animals, and so I would pretend that the animals were real and have a zoo. Also, when I was less than 5 years old, I remember stripping down to my underwear, and putting a stuffed animal in my pants and pretended to be a kangaroo.
