I check that the kitchen electrical outlets are switched off before I leave the house.

That's not odd, it's saving energy and making sure you don't have an electrical fire while you're out.

Odd is chanting: purse phone keys, purse phone keys, while you're getting ready to go out

I suck my thumb when I'm tired. I was trying to get my daughter to stop because her orthodontist said it was absolutely the worst thing you could do in the world (after rape and murder) and she told him blatantly that she'd stop the day after I do.

I've got really good teeth. I'm an expert at not pushing on them. I'm allowed.

I do that. "Keys, phone, wallet, pass..."

I tend to say 'Thank you' to the cash machine.

I also talk to myself in the car. That's allowed when I'm on my own because I can pretend I've got a bluetooth earpiece on. But when the kids are there and I forget I'm not alone they realise I'm mental.....

Anyone one else do the pretending you're being filmed for a cookery programme while you're making tea?

I sucked my thumb until I was about 14 years old, and there's nothing wrong with my teeth.

I only stopped (despite my mother's nagging, foul tasting liquids painted on, etc., etc.,) when I wanted to grow my nails.

Current odd habits?  None that I'm telling you lot about!

I talk to the television .

i have to check that the freezer door is closed each night before bed. someone left it open once and i think that throwing out all that food and cleaning up the flood of water left me slightly traumatised.

oh and i also check that the gas hob is off.(someone left that on once too)

and i talk to myself in the car - often to describe my next manoeuvre.

i consider myself borderline v mild ocd. tell me others check appliances too................... please

I do the right shoe first thing [and sock].
I talk to cash machines and the satnav [we argue actually].
I'm not often filmed for a cookery programme, but every teensy wobble I go out on I'm being filmed running solo from Land's End to John o' Groats and I give the film crew a commentary on the countryside around us. They don't seem bored with my 4 mile loop yet!
Toast should be cut diagonally.
Can't drink coffee from a china mug, but it's essential for tea.
I don't and never have sucked my thumb!

I like to dress up as a nun.

That's far more normal (dressing as a nun) than flying around in the air with your tail spinning, though, eh?
