    I thought it would be funny to share our idiosyncrasies with one another.

    I'll start...

    -I have a "thing" for large jackets and wear a parka 9 months of the year.

    -I like pockets

    -I hate hearing the dishwasher, clothes dryer or washer. I am very sensitive to ambient noise.

    -I always chew my food on the right side of my mouth.

    -I brush my teeth for two minutes on the top, two minutes on the bottom everyday.

    -I face my alarmclock away from me.

    -I only wear shirts with a mandarin collar (well, I try to...)

    -I wear a nose plug when changing my son's diaper (When we had a cat I used to wear a gasmask when changing the cat litter)

    -My bass has a capo on the second fret all the time.

    -I cut my fingernails on Tuesday mornings.

    -when I watch a movie all the lights must be off.

    -I sleep with wax earplugs (ohropax) everynite.

    -I drink 3 litres of water a day.

    -Out of the 350 people I work with I am definitely the most Left of centre in my political beliefs and worldview

    There is probably more, but that's all I have right now.

    And you?...

    I was gonna post a thread like this, but I didn't know how to word it.

    Anyway, I will only wear socks if I have shoes on. Otherwise, I'll be very uncomfortable. I also put on my socks and shoes with my left foot first.

    I cannot sleep without ambient noise of some kind. I grew up near a freeway and it trained me that way.

    I WILL NOT wear watches or anything else that goes around my wrist.

    I do not eat green vegetables of any kind.

    I will put cheese on just about anything other than dessert.

    1) I have a thing for bassists. (cough) (cough)

    2) I go nuts if the Brita filter is empty

    3) I sleep with earplugs everynite too

    4) I work at an art museum but don't believe in museums (non-historical or preserving/conserving)

    5) I have the same routine every week. Wake up at 6:30am and go to work. Get off at 6pm and go to the gym. Gym to Art Studio. Leave art studio at 11pm or 11:30pm. Go to bed at 1am. Repeat. Weekends- wake up at 7am and go to studio and leave at 10pm.

    6) I MUST have a glass of water lying next to me before I go to sleep

    7) I take allergy pills to go to bed

    8) I go crazy when some event happens to screw up my routine but I never show anyone that is drives me crazy.
  7. Me too! Left, then right. Always.
  8. LOL! Was there another choice after the left one? :ninja:

  9. Hahahaha! Touche'. :D

    - I have to sleep with a bottle of water next to me. It cant be a glass of water because I spill it every darn time...

    - I *have* to sleep with socks on in the winter

    - I hate being couped up in the house for too long. If I'm in the house any longer than 3 or 4 hours I have to get outside if even for a walk.

    - I have this wool fetish where I love scratchy wool coats and stuff. never wear them, but I just think wool looks neat

    - I'm frustratingly center in my political views, sometimes left is right, sometimes right. Just depends on the situation. It drives coworkers nuts

    - ambient noise kills me too, I can only sleep or conentrate if it's absolutely quiet.

    - rainy and/or windy days send me into a daydreaming frenzy

    - I own an alarm clock that is supposed to wake me up with rainforest noises, but I've beat it to the punch everyday now for the past 4 years so I've never actually been woken up with rainforest noises.

    - despite trying hard to be a skeptic, I'm convinced that I'm mildly psychic as too many weird things have happened to me (go ahead and laugh, doesnt bother me!)

    - I have no one favorite thing in regards to color, songs, movies, animals etc... nothing. I just like batches of things equally.

    - scary places like cemetaries and crypts are cool. I'm more uneasy in a dentists office than I am in a supposed "haunted place"

    - I hate most sports and have no idea why

    I can't sleep with socks or shirts on, unless it's really cold or I'm really drunk.

    I like to put tomato juice and/or salt and/or tabasco in my beer.

    That's all I can think of.

    Y'all are weird. :p

    Hmm. This is interesting to think about things like this.

    - I love boobs.

    - I drive with one finger on the freeway. Usually my left thumb. I'm exceptionally calm during freeway driving, yet most of my friends are all white-knuckled nervous nelly's when going 70mph or faster.

    - I hate leaving sticky goo on purchased items once I've peeled off labels or tape or stickers.

    - I say "DUDE" way too often.

    - My work desk is F'in slooooopy. Covered in stupid crap. Yet I know where everything is.

    - I love squeezing pimples. LOVE IT. I'm almost happy when I find a big zit on my shoulders. I love giving gals massages and back scratches, but if I see a zit, I gotta pop the sumbitch.

    - When I wind up cables (speaker, instrument, signal...) I have to be extra careful to wind em up neatly so they're not tangled messes. Then I wrap the coil all the way around with the end, to keep the coil from unraveling.

    That's about it.

    Here are some

    - I say eh too often, typical Canadian eh?

    - I type with only my index fingers

    - I don't like wearing red or blue

    - I try my best to keep everything in mint condition

  16. Every one of you are so darn weird it hurts! :rollno:

    -1.) I sleep with one foam earplug in my left ear each night. Sometimes its necessary to also plug the right ear.. but only with cotton!

    -2.) Every time I start a prayer, I get this mental image of God... but its all wrong, and I can't seem to shake it .. I know He's NOT bald! :meh:

    -3.) I immediately clamp my hands over my ears with I hear sirens, kids screamin' or over-amplified sound. Instinctive?

    -4.) I can't put away any of my instruments if the strings aren't completely clean, and no fingerprints can be on the body at all.

    Great thread! Why didn't I chek it out it earlier? :D

    - I have a thing for female musicians,
    - I have no problems sleeping with a spotlight pointing straight onto my face or in a noisy environment,
    - I can't keep any plants alive in my apartment,
    - I like wearing orange clothes in the summer, but not in the winter,
    - I think salad is more decoration than food,
    - I don't care too much about bass gear,
    - I have no clue why people are interested in sports,
    - I hold the steering wheel in my car between my left hand's index and middle finger (I'm left-handed)
    - My TV is ridiculously small (14") but I don't care too much...

    That was about it I think...

    food has to be equally distributed on either side of my mouth in order for me to eat it.
    my right hand is stronger and i write with it, but i do everything else with my left (like throw/catch, open doors, carry things, etc.)
    i can fall asleep anywhere.

    - I drive my automatic transmission like a manual.
    - I seldom watch TV, and am often left out of conversations about it.
    - I'm very self reliant, and hate being helped unless I ask for it.
    - I'm WAY too organized.
    - I drive an El Camino.

    Wierd enough?
