Yes, I know I am weird haha.
"Bye" always has to be the last word I speak on the phone. A simple "see ya later" won't cut it..
Whenever I go out in public, I'm always subtlely checking to make sure my fly's up.
I have to double, triple, quadruple check that I have my keys before locking my car door...especially when there's other tasks involved like getting stuff out of the car.
I can't let my bed go un-made.
I always have to have my MP3 player when going to class.

As for habits, things also have to be in balance, but that's a lefty thing.
When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?
I have remote keyless entry on my car. It just takes one click of the button to lock all of the doors, but I click it again to hear the horn honk, I don't know why.
When I wash dishes, its always silverware first, followed by glasses, plates, pans, and finally pots.
Shirts are always arranged by colors, reds, pinks, oranges, etc.
I always shave starting on my left cheek, anything else is too hard.
Probably have a bunch more that will come to me later on.
Speaking of OCD, in high school my mom the social worker forced me to see "As Good as It Get's" at the theater when I was obsessing about my AP exams. It was a great movie, but I really didn't think I had OCD.
toilet paper must roll over the top
clothes in the closet must all face same direction.. (front on left)
Windsheild must be clean
Beer must be cold
"Yeehaw!" is not a foreign policy
Renovating the '62 Metzendorf
I realized that while the dogs have free reign of the house and back yard via their doggy door, and I know that they won't run off or bark all day in the yard, but I still have to have both of them in the house when I leave for the day.
You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone
You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
Oh, it recalled to me what is my most OCD characteristic. I use one kind of pen - Uni-ball Vision Micro, black. In a pinch I can use a Uni-ball Micro without a huge problem. If I use another pen I am not happy. Recently I have been able to sign a check using the store's pen but I don't write the transaction ino my checkbook register until I can get home and use thr right pen!
I really like the way the pen writes. When the pen starts to not give a full, rich flow of ink, I toss it.

I menitoned it before on another thread, but I've got this old rug that I have to walk on certain squares. Real Rainman stuff, I tell ya!
People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
I agree on the gas thing. Pump must stop at $X.00 or I will settle with $X.50. Everything I sign must be in blue ink. The right pants leg, the right sock and shoe must be put on first before the left. Beverages especially pop, must be near freezing cold, if I'm at home or at work. Toilet paper must be placed on the 'over' instead of 'under'. Cash in my wallet is always higher to lower demonination and also alphabetized according to Federal Reserve bank.

is urging me to be myself but never follow someone else

If I go someplace frequently, I have to park in the same general area and preferably the same parking spot. When I park in large lots I always park under a light, even if it means having to walk a long distance across a parking lot.
Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....
I have to work the sudoku puzzle first, before I can read the rest of the morning paper.
Debt is normal . . . Be weird!

I always have to put the money in my wallet in serial number order and from low to high denomination, with the bills 'faced' and the corners unfolded.
