Do you have any rituals that you do that might be considered weird, etc?

I'm obsessive/compulsive, so you can assume that pretty much everything I do is a weird habit.

I often do my best work, feel like doing my best work instead of a half ass job like ussual, and come up with my best ideas in the wee unholy hours of the morning when 90% of the time I can't do anything about it till the next day by which I either don't feel like working on said project any more or forgot my brilliant idea...

I prefer most colas uncarbonated and my pizza cold.

I can't stand it when food is steamy hot; I'd rather it be luke-warm.

I put ice cream in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it up.

I like beer cold, but not THAT cold.

I hate putting a dirty napkin back onto my lap at a restaurant - it defeats the purpose (I tend to crumple it up before wiping with it, so trying to keep one side clean to put it back down doesn't work for me)

I have a laissez faire anal retentive personality. It drives me nuts.

I'm a chronic nail biter and have been such since I was 2 yrs old. It's not bad...I don't make my fingers bleed and can still pick up a dime from a tabletop.

No sugary soda pop allowed in my truck. Sugarless is OK. I HATE sticky door handles, seats, etc.

I hate it when people say: NUCULAR instead of nuclear. AX instead of ask. LIBARY instread of library. FEBUARY instead of February. And use "learned" instead of "taught:" "I learned my boy how to say nucular when he ax when we was at the libary in Febuary."

Everything has a place, and it needs to be in that place. When I need it again, I know where to go get it. If it's not there, I get  grumpy  .

I can't stand disorganization. Things on my desk are stacked and arranged in a specific order. Things in my file cabinet are the same. Most used first, and chronological.

I clean, starch and press all my clothes except suits, t-shirts, underwear and socks. I'd prefer the starch be heavy enough so that any given pair of pants/slacks or shirt stand up by themselves. And when they hang in the closet, there is an order to it. Short Sleeve Pull Over Dress, Short Sleeve Pull Over Casual, Long Sleeve Pull Over Dress, Long Sleeve Pull Over Casual, Short Sleeve Button Down Dress, Short Sleeve Button Down Casual - you get the idea.

I can't stand a dirty vehicle. Inside or out. I'll probably need a paint job on the BAFDT before it's 5 years old because of the number of washings it gets. Winters kill me up here because the BAFDT is instantly dirtied as soon as I leave the garage. Not to worry, the garage is heated and has a floor drain.

Kitchen items MUST be stored with the label facing front and with a semblence of order - veggies with veggies, sauces with sauces, dry goods with dry goods, etc. whether they be in the cabinets or the refrigerator. Anything stored in the frig that has been opened will be sealed in a container or a Zip-Lock type bag.

Nope, nothing is in there long enough to reach an expiration date . . . I do spend what is probably more time than necessary in the grocery checking those dates though prior to purchase.  thumbsup 

Might be a bit anal-retentive, but I don't have to spend 30 minutes trying to find anything . . . if I do someone has fawked with me stash . . .  biggrin

I suppose I have them to thank for that yes, I'm good with it . . .  bigthumbsup 

Comparatively speaking - my brother is a walking clusterfu*k, couldn't find his ass with both hands and a sqaudron of Cav Scouts . . .

Funny that - my brother is a total neat-freak - gets it from my Dad. He has small kids though, and it drives him nuts (hehe !) I on the other live in a semi-permanent state of total chaos, punctuated by periodic frenzies of tidying up and cries of "Oh, THAT'S where that went ! I've been looking for that for ages !".

I'm exactly the same. My other accent is English. I don't notice it till someone tells me and I can stop it. It happens anytime for me so I don't know what causes it.

-Ever since I was a kid, i'm not comfortable when I sleep unless my hand is under the pillow.

-I bite my nails all the time.

-My room is always in a mess, and my school papers, books, etc are never organised but when it comes to my PC, everything is perfectly organised.

-My accents also change, I have a fluent English accent but with some people I use a more "broken down" accent of English (its usually with those who are not very good at speaking English).

I always poke at a small cyst I have under my chin, beneath the skin, when I get nervous.

And, I have a tendency to drink sips of soy sauce for some weird reason. It's not like I sit and have a glass of the stuff, but I will take little tastes all the time if it is around me. LOL.

Also, when I come to a stop light, I'll often say to myself, "If I can count to ten before the light turns green, then I will have a good day, or certain 'bad' things won't happen, etc.

Wow...what don't I do that's weird.

I spend all of my day at work posting in the non-av part of an aviation board.

I always get up in the morning to the left.

I used to talk to the goalposts. Not only when the puck hit one, I'd say nice save, thanks, but when there was no action in my end, I'd stand there and talk to them/myself.

ANC, that is a little freaky. But, like you said, at least you know where everything is at all times. I wish I was a little more organized myself, not quite to that degree, but a little.

* I'm too nit-picky when it comes to spelling mistakes (both in English and Spanish). I can't stand them! My sister won't ask me to help her with her homework because I keep pointing out her spelling mistakes instead of actually helping her out  Silly

* I usually scratch my nose when I'm nervous (such as, when I'm happily posting here and then manage to minimize the browser window a nanosecond before the boss walks into my office  relieved  )
