Good one. I'm surprised BT didn't nail that one. He must not be feeling himself today......in the logical sense.

I have a few
I absolutely, CANNOT, sleep in a bed that is not made. DH is still in bed when I leave in the morning so I dont' get to make the bed until I get home. I have to shake out the bottom one, no wrinkles and then put each layer on without wrinkles. DH will come in and throw all of his over to the middle and I always have to fix it so that my side is still flat and unwrinkled.

The other is, there is only one kind of plate that I will eat off of because I cannot stand and pattern that my utensils will scrape against.

There is only one fork I will use. It is the only one of it too. I think it was left here from a party. Noone else in the house is allowed to use it. If they have, they learned real quick not to. I will take it from them mid bite if I had to
One more, I CANNOT eat from thick utensils. They have to be thin. I don't know why, so don't ask. I just can't. I've wondered if any of this is a form of OCD or just being weird?!

Come on, show me I'm not the only weirdo, PLEASE?? lol
I can eat off of anything and out of anything and it wouldnt bother me.

I HATE having cash on me so i leave it in the bank.

my room is a hell hole and i HATE it but i HATE cleaning with a passion so im screwed no matter what.

othetr than that i cant think of any, i know i have them i just dont pay attention to them.

I have a quirk....

when posting here, I don't like my words going
past the center of the posting page.
I also don't like terribly uneven right edges to my posts!

so you won't generally see my posts stretching way over to the right side of the page, like this!

Another quirk : I can't stand drinking plain water, it has to have flavor and I really hate clorinated water! I have well water and the water is filtered thru the refrigerator's filter.

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

My house can be a mess the floors dirty windows dirty . But my microwave has to be spotless on the inside. Can't stand a dirty microwave or leaving a pile of dirty dishes overnight in the sink a plate and a couple of glasses is OK. I also can not and will not cook or bake etc with dirty dishes in the sink or a cluttered counter everything must be in order first.
