my quirks

great post over at rands in repose, where he (and many others) list their superstitions/ocd quirks. lots of stuff in the post and in the comments, many of which i do myself. here are a few less obvious ones that i recognized in myself:

» volume levels on TV/stereo/etc must be even or divisible by 5

» I always wet the toothbrush before putting toothpaste on it.

» Even after I *know* I’ve put my keys into my bag, I must double-check that they’re there before closing car door or trunk

» I have to start walking with my left foot

and here are a few of my own:

» french fries are eaten in groups of three

» i smell a glass before putting liquid in

» check and recheck that the alarm is set, even though i always wake up and turn it off before it goes off

how many of them do you recognize in yourself? what are yours?
