some people seem to think there is a difference between being eccentric and being weird, of having quirks and acting odd. however you phrase it i find singular traits fascinating - in others and myself. so here's a few of mine in no particular order; i know others can easily add to them...
1 running to answer the door or phone
2 standing on furniture (e.g. couches, chairs, beds)
3 doing ballet moves when barefoot on tile in kitchens
4 naming objects with people names (e.g. lockers, foot stools, cars, trees)
5 saying "it's okay" constantly
6 muscling through things and acting as though i grew up in a refugee camp (e.g. going w/o heat, continuing to rip up carpet nails after bloodying my hands)
7 keeping dry food goods for years and thinking that's okay (see 5 & 6)
8 alphabetizing cds, dvds, books
9 driving away AS SOON AS i start the car
10 taking comments literally
11 crying when i laugh hard + speaking unintelligibly in a high squeeky voice
12 walking fast
13 mutant saliva that makes steak grow in my mouth and causes me to take FOREVER to eat it
14 believing you should use things like kleenex and toilet paper only for their specific purposes
i'll stop there.
