Ok, I thought of another quirk I have. I'm one of those that does't like to start something before finishing what I'm working on.

I'm sorta like that except it drives me crazy when a started project doesn't get finished (in a timely manner). It bugs me so much that I am like a crazy woman with a one-track mind whenever I have a project going. (I always finish my projects but my family is very bad about starting but not finishing things).

That reminds me of one of James's quirks (he is the same way about finishing what he starts). When I eat, I eat a little of each thing, with the last bite being my favorite thing on the plate. When James eats, he eats all of one thing, then all of the next thing, etc. I read something a few months ago that said that people who eat one thing at a time are the type who finish what they start. I tend to start lots of things and am lucky if I ever finish anything!

Interesting. I eat as you do. Going around the plate and eating different things, finishing with the thing I like best. But, I also finish what I started, that is, my plate is always empty!

I can only get on a motorcycle from the left side. If I, for some reason, get on from the right I'll hop off and climb back on from the left.

I'm sure there's more......

I do those things too.

And I set the alarm clock at exactly 7:15 or 7:00. If I get to 7:01 I have to go all the way around again.

Thought of some more.

In the closet, all my clothes are on hangers in order of size and color. That is, longest first, then medium-length, down to shortest. All colors are done in order of the color spectrum. Shoes done in color order, too. Same for everything in my lingerie drawer. My jewelry is arranged the same way - according to color and size.

Guess I never got Roy G. Biv out of my brain after I was out of school. That's how I learned the order of colors. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

They are like horses. If you get on from the wrong side, they kick you!
