My wife noticed this, but it's extremely odd. I make 'M's and 'W's. I draw out the pattern of those letters all the time. With my finger on my knee while I'm sitting, with my pencil while I'm daydreaming. I'll scratch her back in a W pattern or trace it out on the steering wheel with my finger while idling at a light.
It's very, very odd. It's like I've been exposed to the Threshold signal and the aliens are trying to communicate with me through some sort of code.

When I meet someone for the first time, I try to rhyme their name in my head so I remember it. I do not have a very good memory so sometimes this works. I never told anyone put my wife. She is the only one who knows me who knows this. Now, when we meet someone together for the first time, I always notice her (my wife) looking at me after introductions. She says she is trying to guess what I am rhyming the name to. Or, when we meet someone with a unique name, she smiles knowing that I am killing myself to find a rhyme for that name,
Thos are the big ones. The others are too many to mention and are probably duplicates of others.

I'm another fries-first eater as well, although I always take one bite out of the burger first.
I talk to myself. Usually just inside my head, but occasionally I realize I'm saying stuff out loud.
If I have the choice, I prefer walking on grass rather than the sidewalk.
I have trouble getting to sleep unless I'm in one particular position: on my side, one arm under the pillow and another over the blanket with a fistful of the edge, legs curled up with the blanket tucked partly between them.

I seem to always push the lever on paper towel dispensers (like in public bathrooms) 6 times really quick to get the proper amount of paper towel. I found it really throws me off if the dispensor has an abnormal rate of dispensing and spits out enough before I get through the motions.

Ok, here's one that I've just noticed, and I'm curious to know if anyone else recognizes this. In movies and tv shows, when they show a character reading a book or magazine, they seemingly always turn pages the wrong way.
When you've finished reading a page in a book, you take the page on the right, and move it to the left. I've seen so many instances where they will take the page on the left side and move it to the right.
With a magazine, at least you could say that a person is just leafing through it, not really reading anything in particular. But in a book, you are going to the previous page (try it out with a book if you can't visualize it in your head).
I know I've seen this a bunch of times before, but I remembered it today because of a scene in the last episode of the British version of "The Office" where it happens.
I know in movies sometimes they'll reverse the picture, which can lead to things like that, but it seems to happen far too often.
Anyone else ever notice this, or am I just crazy?
EDIT: I guess the quirk is that I always look to see if the pages are turning the right way, which they aren't a fair portion of the time.
Yeah, 20%, rounded up, at restaurants (or a little more if I'm a regular). If I pick up to-go food at an actual sit-down type restaurant, I'll usually tip 10% for the guys in the back, or I'll put a buck in the "tip jar.
