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

I do use soppin bread on occassion, but sometimes it is not handy... so I do what I gotta do!

I just thought of another quirk of mine.... when grocery shopping, and your standing in line to check out, I can't stand when strangers get to close to me. (I have my personal space you know!) So to put space between me, specially those tailgaters, I will move my basket or cart just so as to prevent them from invading my space. I am always respectful of other folks' space!

I have a double sink in the kitchen if you MUST put a dirty glass in the sink instead of the dishwasher, put it on the right side.

I too cannot get into an unmade bed. If I can't make it until it's bedtime, I'll make it then get in.

In the refrigerator, the milk goes on the right and the juice on the left.

When I'm cooking eggs, I always use the left front burner.

Make sure you close the toilet lid before flushing or I will have to clean the entire bathroom. (I heard once that when you flush a toilet, micro particles will fly over 6 feet out of the toilet and I have been freaked out ever since.)

ok, i thought of a few.

when i eat sushi, i always save my favourite piece to eat last.

i try to eat the various things on my plate evenly, so i take the last bite of each thing as i'm finishing.

when i'm really thirsty and chug something, i count the sips, and never go over 10 sips.

that's it so far.

My blankets have to be a cetain way before I go to sleep.

Food on my plate can't touch.

I always eat all of one thing before I move on to the next.

And I refuse to wait on a customer who's too busy gabbing on
their stupid cell phone.

what twitch?

lol, quicksilver.

another quirk of mine is that i don't like is eating on a cluttered table. condiments are ok, but i don't like to eat on a table or counter with a lot of stuff like mail, canned food, cereal boxes, cat food, newspapers, etc.

my plate needs it's personal space.

I don't like any "obstacles" in my food to get in my way while eating. I lose my appetite if I have to stop and shell prawns, poke around and remove the bones, skins etc. from fish, or worth yet accidentally biting into them. Olives, they are okay if you are eating them on their own but if they are mixed in pasta or salad or something, I wish them to be chopped up and seeds removed, I don't like them being left whole.

If I am served something like this at other people's house, I won't complain and quietly do my best to deal with them, but if I am cooking I make sure everything is ready to be eaten peacefully and smoothly without further ado.

I like things lined up/straightened up, like picture frames, stacks of papers, etc.

My paper money has to be arranged with largest bills in the back, smallest in front, and each president has to be right-side-up and facing forward (my mom was exactly the same, but she had small bills in back and larger in front, lol).

I like things ordered by size. For example, my cookbooks are arranged from tallest to shortest.

I like symmetry.

When typing, I always go back and fix spelling errors/typos if I see them. I am so thankful for computers, which make this easier. (LOL I already had to hit edit and come back and fix something here). When in college, I would retype an entire paper for something as small as a comma (the teacher would allow that to be corrected with black ink, but unless I didn't notice until it was too late, I retyped it).

I'm trying to get better about this, but even when making a list just for myself that no one else will ever see, I will throw it away and start over if I make a mistake when writing it. I'm making a little progress and will now sometimes just cross it out and rewrite it underneath.
