I can't leave the house without tissues - even if I haven't got a cold.

I read somewhere that talking to yourself is actually quite a mentally healthy thing to do. Something to do with us having two distinct hemispheres in our brain that process information in very different ways. The way they communicate within the brain is not perfect so by talking out loud to yourself you're effectively passing information from one part to the other much more efficiently.


My strangest habit (other than getting unecessarily nerdy in a light-hearted thread) is probably when pouring foostuffs out, like rice, pasta, cereal etc. No matter how much I pour out I always have to grab three or four bits and put them back in the packet. I cannot just pour, stop, put packet away, it just feels wrong!

Well that is just being practical Small. You never know when they may be needed.

I worry if I don't have any with me. 

Sheddy, I knew you were strange

SS - I once left the house to go to for a meal at an Indian restaurant. Half way there I realised I didn't have tissues with me, so I turned round, went home and got some.

I also have slight panic attacks if I can't find one when I'm out!

That is a bit weird isn't it?

Well you have to keep them somewhere   The bit at the front is a bit more comfy than under the shoulder strap.

When i load the washing machine with clothes and before I switch it on I have to walk around and count the cats, even though I've just loaded I worry about the cats being stuck in there after it goes on!!!

 I also have to do the suitcase thing, I'm constantly unpacking and re packing before a holiday cos I suddenly think of something I want to take and have to check if I've packed it. (i guarantee everytime that i get somewhere and have forgotten something too!!)

 The cushions in the lounge have to be straight before i leave for work.

 I treat writing xmas cards waaaayy too seriously!!

 handbag, purse, keys, handbag, purse, keys, handbag........

tie back curtains are an art and I go crazy if they are done wrong!!!

just a few for starters!!! lol!!

i can only eat mouthfuls of the same food - i can't mix a forkful of meat with peas for example.  and on my plate i like no food to be hiding under other food.

12/12/2008 at 13:01

Oh gawd, I do that too.  There really is no hope for me.
