    I was talking with my girlfriend and she noticed thingsi do and went "huh?"

    Here are some examples:

    - I dont like to sit facing the wall giving my back to the room (such in a hotle room)
    - When i sleep i like one side (left or right) touching the wall, i went so far as rearranging the hotle room when i stayed there for 2 weeks.
    - I would fill the glass with soda but i would only fill it to half way drink that, then drink pour the rest.
    - I have 10 kinds of deodorants, even thou i only use 2.
    - I always flush the toilet even thou i just went in to brush my teeth.
    - When i sleep the tv has always to be on.
    -When i sleep i need a night light
    - On my mac i have to have a folder for everything, if i have a a file that does not belong anywere i will make a file for it.
    - I take a pill which says take 1 hour before going to the gym, i will always take it 1 hour before going to the gym. Not 45mins before, not 50 mins before.

    I cant think of anymore but if i do i will add them here.

    I prefer to sit on the left bottom side corner of a table.

    How can you tell the corner if it is symetrical??

    I like sleeping facing the door. IKt does not depend on side just facing the door.

    I'm pretty obsessed with doing "things" in 5s -- take steps in multiples of 5, brush my teeth in multiples of 5 strokes, chew and sip in multiples of 5, drum my fingers in multiples of 5. Makes me sound crazy, but it's one way to keep balanced, I think. I'm always counting off in my head, so why not put it to work?

    I hate sitting in the front. Can't help but think people are staring at me instead of what they ought to pay attention too. Drives me nuts sometimes. So, I avoid sitting in the front (say at a speech, or movie theater)

    You're such a wasteful person.

    Do your bit and conserve energy/water!

    You should really learn to get over your habits.

    I always need my bedroom door shut, even if I am alone. I cannot concentrate on anything if I know the door is open.

    I need to sleep in complete darkness, even when I was little (and with the door shut of course).

    I like my eggs slightly raw and runny; anything more and I feel sick after eating the eggs (they seem way too dry to me....my omelettes NEED to be runny).

    I always crave chocolate milk and get some to drink..but I hate it. My friends have to constantly remind me to not buy the chocolate milk because 4 seconds after opening it I remember I hate it.

    I drink 4-6 glasses of skim milk a day.

    You should cut down on your milk intake.

    Milk is not good.

    Cows are pumped full of hormones so they can produce milk all year round.

    You're taking in those hormones yourself!

    "Dairy products are a health hazard. They contain no fiber or complex carbohydrates and are laden with saturated fat and cholesterol. They are contaminated with cow's blood and pus and are frequently contaminated with pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics. Dairy products are linked to allergies, constipation, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and other diseases."

    Whenever I drink out of a glass, I need to wipe the area around the rim of the cup with my thumb because a single droplet of water (or whatever I'm drinking) sitting in an area of the cup where my lips has been makes me go crazy.

    I must, repeat MUST sit in the centre seat in a movie theatre. I go so far as to count the number of seats in the row if the theatre is symmetrical.

    i cannot wear mismatched socks, although they are all nearly exactly the same, by that i mean one pair may have a small grey detailing on the heal or side or the knit may vary slightly. i've tried to just to wear any but all day it will drive me insane.

    I'm the same way, it makes me feel really uncomfortable. It happens in one of my classes often (not a whole lot of seats left when I get to campus), and the professor looks at me a lot of the time.

    I have to have my eggs well done. Same reason as you need yours runny. I feel sick after having eggs not done well enough.

    same here, my parents are always confused by it, they think I'm doing stuff i shouldn't be.

    also...
    -when listening to music from stereo speakers, they have to be an equal distance away on each side.

    -when i sit down, i will find myself crossing my legs under the chair without noticing

    -if i have a pen/pencil and I'm listening to something i will start tapping on something close to me with it.

    You should cut down on quoting.

    Pointing out people's oddly hypocritical behavior is not good.

    People are taught to correct others, no matter how annoying it is.

    You're running the risk of inspiring him to change his behavior!

    :D

    I tend to bite the skin/gunk/whatever off the *bites stuff off lip* very surface of my lips when I'm bored/nervous/thinking *bites stuff off lip* or sometimes just for no *bites stuff off lip* apparent reason.
