Re: Weird habits

My cat occasionally loses a whisker or two around the house. I save the ones I find in a special box.

Re: Weird habits

Whenever anyone gets on the metro with a pram, I try to make the child cry, just to brighten up my day.

It's harder than you'd imagine, though.

Sometimes when I type on the comp, I talk to myself trying to bring the thoughts aloud. It irritates hell out of me and this is just me....

Re: Weird habits

I try to avoid the cracks on the pavement. It makes walking look so weird with some small steps and some long jumps.

I'm exactly the same when I walk on the sidewalk with pavers. I try to skip them in odd numbers i.e. 3 or 5

Re: Weird habits

I always overtake other joggers at a really fast pace before slowing back to normal when out of view, just to make them feel unworthy of their existence.

I used to try and avoid cracks with my left foot and cover as many as possible with my right foot....this results in a much more normal walking behaviour.....(being weird right under everybody's noses
