The vast majority of the time I eat pizza I eat it cheese and toppings first, then wrap the rest around the crust, and eat it like a bread stick.

That's all I can think of for now.

    I'm sorta like that too. I always eat all of my fries first, no matter what else is in front of me, and I always save the main entree for last.

I've been told I do that too. A few former GFs would comment why I was only eating one thing and not the other. And I always eat the side dishes first. My best friend's aunt noticed this during thanksgiving dinner. She comment how I ate from my plate "efficiently."

I also say "what?" any time someone say "what?" to me, like if they want to ask me what I've just said.

If I hit a bump while I'm driving, I'll always say "boom-boom" when the tires hit it. I started doing that when I was really young.

I cook baked goods and then don't eat them, or I eat only the tiniest amount and don't want any more even if I made a bake sale type amount. The weirdest thing is right now I have a roommate who does this even more than I do. In the course of a week there are probably about 4 or 5 different kinds of baked goods made in this household. Now that I think about it, I'm really not sure where they go...

I'm really bad about making sound effects too...when I'm driving down a big hill...I always say "WHEEEEEEEEE" and will usually listen to a song and pickup the really sound effect and play it over and over...right now I can't stop doing the whistle part from a Juelz Santana song. When I have to stop fast...and slam on the brakes...I always imitate the brakes squealing too.

Behold the "Wise" Words of Renegade Raine, the Bishounen Hunter:


Oh boy, I've got enough quirks to last a lifetime...

I HAVE to skip stairs two at a time while going up.

I can not stand any condiment on sandwiches, if I get a burger and it has either ketchup, mustard, or mayo, I'll take the toppings off and rinse them under the sink. I'll then scrape the offending condiments off of the sandwich with a butter knife.

I set my clock about two and a half hours ahead, since I'm so lazy about getting out of bed. And I almost always forget that it's not at the exact time in the morning, so I rush out of bed.

I can not stand the feel of paper rubbing against my hands.

All cupboard doors MUST be shut...it drives me crazy if any of the doors are open.

I collect my movie stubs and tickets to events I go to.

I know I have more quirks, but that's all I can think of for now.

I just remembered that when I get DVDs, at some point I must watch them on my computer in Windows Media Player and then label each track on it. I think I do this to make sure I've seen everything on the disc. It really helps you find easter eggs as well. For example, these are the discs from the first five volumes of Seinfeld that have easter eggs on them:
Volume 1: 1, 3, and 4.
Volume 3: 1, 2, 3, and 4.
Volume 4: 3 (two of them) and 4.
Volume 5: 1 (two of them), 2, 3, and 4.

A few other things I noted, and thought of while reading others posts.

When dropping a duece, I always wait until it is about to rupture out of me. I am NEVER in the john more than 60 seconds for a BM. EVER. Every girl I have ever known in my life has said the same sentence at one time or another to me. "You're done already?" (* Note, we are still talking about BMs)

When getting a sub or other sandwhich at Subway, blimpee, or some place like that, I always ask for the meat to be put on the bottom side and not the top. The lady at subway, where I eat all my lunches, will tell the other girls "Look, its mister meat on the bottom" when I walk in.

I cannot stand a to download a song, and whatever numb skull had it first, puts either the wrong artist, or misspells thier name. I have to edit it the second its finished downloading. And, all my artists have to be listed last name first. IE Lauper, Cyndi and Springsteen, Bruce. Dont know why.

I'm pretty ridiculous with ID3 tagging, too. I have to have the right artist name, song title, album name, genre, and year. Also, all of my MP3s are in the format of "(Artist name feat. Featured Artist 1, Featured Artist 2 & Featured Artist 3)-Song Title.mp3. Every single last one of them. I don't have a monster collection like some people, but it's probably around 10gb worth. For some reason I just cannot stand to have them named in any other way.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"Because personally if I was being choked by Ric Flair, my personal reaction would be well, "Glrrrrkkk, can't breathe" but after that... "Man, I'm being choked out by Ric Flair, this is so cool." and then some more "Gllllrrrrk, can't breathe."" (Llakor)

I'm pretty bad, too. All guest artists must be credited in the song title, as in "Song Title (feat. Guest Artist Here)". Also, single MP3's are "Artist - Song Title.mp3" while MP3's from full albums are "Track Number Song Title.mp3". Thanks to iTunes, I don't care about file names for songs in that format, and I have a reason for the guest artist crediting. I don't want to scroll through eight listings from the same album on my iPod where it's "Artist", "Artist feat. Guest #1", "Artist feat. Guest #2", blah blah OCD-cakes.

tasks at home and my occassional job twice a month require handle large amounts of money. the bills always have to be facing the same way. If I have a stack of money for a bank deposit, it's always organized from largest to smallest bills (largest on top, smallest on the bottom).

    Organization...my CDs, DVDs, and Video Games have to be in Alphabetical order, all of the time. And the boxes can't be out of order either, Boxed sets go together alphabetized, and the 2 main types of DVD boxes are grouped together, to keep up the appearance. If I have more than one CD by an artist, I always go in order of release...


Clearly, you are crazy. If you have more than one CD by an artist, they have to be arranged in alphabetical order by album title. Though maybe your way does make more sense...

Anyway, I'm sure I have TONS of quirks that other people notice, but the only one that comes to mind is that I need/like to have things organized which is incredibly ironic because I'm usually too lazy to organize my stuff.

That reminds me that whenever I go to the bank to cash or deposit a check, the check absolutely cannot be folded in any way.

How do you handle titles that start with "The", or if the creator's name is shoved in front of the main title? (such as "[Marc Ecko's] Getting Up" or, [John Romero's] Daikatana) That kind of thing has been screwing up my alphabetizing for a while now, so I wonder how someone else would handle it. (or another example.... Alphabetically, SSX 3 should come before SSX Tricky, but the latter was the earlier release. Which comes first?)

I like raisins out of the box but they disgust me when they're in things (cookies, cereal, breads, etc.).

Also, touching velvet (usually the less plush variety) freaks me out.

When I go out, my smokes and my lighter need to be in my left pocket, my phone and keys on the right. Change can't be in the same pocket as the keys.

If I'm playing cards that have a discernable image (not the plain blue or red pattern on most poker decks) on the back, I have to arrange the cards so they're all the same way.

I buy gas at a Sheetz near my work on pump 9, 11, or 13. If I go anywhere else for gas, I need to think for a minute which side my tank is on.

It takes me 15 minutes to decide what I want at a McDonalds. I always get Double Cheesers with lettuce, tomato, and mayo.

If I wish for something, be it from tossing a coin into a fountain with my back turned or smoking my lucky, I have to wish for something in one word.

If someone asks me something I don't know the answer to, I spout off random words.

I steal. If you know I steal, odds are I don't steal from you. I don't take things of any real value (excluding the leather jacket that was my size that I found in a lost and found), mostly mundane things like lighters, loose change, pens. If I'm in a store, bacon, eggs, etc.

I'm a dog whisperer. Either that or I scare the shit out of dogs.

If somebody starts singing a song I know, I start to sing along with them.

When I write the letter 'o', I stop to look at it to see how close to a perfect circle it was. I've gotten two perfects in my life, at random.

I don't arrange my DVDs or CDs alphabetically, by artist, or even by genre, so long they are all parallel.

I bite my finger nails.

So, aside from being completely batshit, I'm normal.

I unconsciously snap my toes. Like finger snapping, but with my big toe and the pointer (?) toe. Or I use two feet and snap my pinkie toes. It's ridiculously loud, and apparently very annoying if you're not the person doing the snapping.

I pretty much do it nonstop when I'm laying around watching TV or when I'm nervous. Of course, I have to be shoeless and sock-less, so I don't do it often in public.

For me, my keys are always in my right pants pocket. But when my hair starts to get long after a haircut, then I start carrying around a small pocket comb in my right pants pocket. When that happens, the keys are then switched to the left pants pocket until my next haircut.
