I can't sleep in an unmade bed either. I helped my daughter move in her new apartment last week. As soon as the movers left, I found her linens and said come on let's make your bed - she thought I was crazy when there were so many other things that needed un-packed, but the next morning she said she was sure glad when bedtime came :)

I have an alarm clock quirk too, but not like larry's. I do not like to be woken up by a person. If someone wakes me up, I feel like I did not get all the sleep I could have gotten because people have a habit of waking you up a little early, just in case. I prefer an alarm clock because I choose the time I will be rudely dragged, kicking and screaming, from blissful slumber.

What a fun topic!

I don't think I have very many, but the few that I have are a bit strange...

Whenever DH and I are walking through a store (any store) there always seems to be something that seems to have a certain texture that I *HAVE* TO TOUCH! It wasn't until I got married that I noticed how often I do this. DH and I will be holding hands, and he'll notice me going towards a certain object, and he'll try to pull me away from it!! I know it's silly, and does not make a bit of sense, but I HAVE to see what it feels like! I have absolutely no idea why.

Another is that I absolutely hate to get my face wet. When i'm taking a shower, I have a small wash cloth that I hang over the shower curtain, so that way if too much water splashes on my face, I can quickly dry it off. I always wash my face at the end of my shower, and will dry my face with a clean towel that I hang by the bath tub (not the same wash cloth). I get so mad if I have to go outside while it's raining, and I don't have an umbrella. If that happens, i'll normally try to find a magazine or something to help block the rain from hitting my face.

I'm sure there's probably more, but that's all I can think of right now..

My quirks are food related...I like celery, but raw, not cooked. And other things like that. DH says it makes it virtually impossible to cook for. I'm getting better, but it's rough.

My food can't touch. That's #1, and most important!
If clothing hits the floor it's dirty.
Unmade bed, I don't think so. Dh thinks I'm goofy making a bed just to get in and mess it up. (Who says I'm gonna mess it up?)
I hate tight collared shirts, make me feel like I'm choking..... but I don't mind necklaces or turtlenecks. But give me a t-shirt with a neck to high..... sorry.
I have to cook and do housework with good tennis shoes on. But I don't like shoes in the house. Solutuon? I have a pair of tennies for in the house only. That is a little wierd I guess.
My late SIL would gag when she saw wet paper. Same with wet bread. DH used to throw wet paper towels at her just for a laugh. Nice brother huh?

I have an unusual "alarm" clock thing. I don't use one. I just set my body to the time I need to get up. Been doing this for nearly 30 years.

If I need to get up at 4 a.m., I just set "myself" to do that. Never fails me.

The bed thing...yes. I have to have my bed made up before I can go to bed. Buck is like a ferris wheel. When we get up in the morning, I'm lucky the covers are in the same county. Sometimes I have to make the bed from the "ground up." Ugh!

I will admit, that I could care less if the bed is made before I go to bed...I mean, i'll quickly make sure the sheet and comforter are evenly over the bed, but that's about it. DH is the one who can't sleep in it unless the "fitted sheet is tightly pulled, the sheet is tucked in at the feet and pulled to an exact spot (not too high, not too low) the comforter is tucked in at the feet and pulled about an inch lower than the sheet, and his pillow fluffed up)... lol he's NUTS!

My belly button I will let no one touch my belly button EVER. I can barely touch it myself. I do keep it clean but I get totally creeped out touching it. When I was about 12 years old I told my mother that in a past life during the medieval times I had been shot with an arrow right in my belly button and that is why it creeps me out. How I came up with that I do not know but that's my story and I'm sticking to it. By the way it's an inny.
