Those little quirks
What is something you do that would be considered odd by someone else or has actually been labeled as odd by someone else?

For example, I'll start with something I do:

(I have an extremely dry scalp that, I suppose, one could label as being of high caliber dandruff quality.) On my days off, when I am sitting in front of the laptop and watching a television show, I love to pick at my scalp, dig at the dandruff, and pull it out.

I eat out at restaurants for lunch almost every day, usually alone.   hobo

I never dress up for any occasion anymore. I wear those baggy, men's fleece shirts and pants all the time. During hotter weather, I wear cargo shorts and T-shirts.  Nod

I dress like that now, and I'm 31  Big Grin

In my younger days, I was the stereotypical gay fashionita. I wore girl's clothes because I had an amazing size zero waist.

I say whatever I want to say at the time. If the people there can't keep up that's not my problem.

If I could go out in a wifebeater (oh, ummmm....white undertank) and a pair of gym shorts every day I would. I love being comfy.

All that said, I'm quirkfully ignorant of fashion as it relates to me, but I love modeling and such as an artform (love those late 90's GAPcommercials).

I wear board shorts when I'm not tanned. Scars don't tan.

I almost never eat dinner unless I’m out at a restaurant.   (I make dinner for my husband, son, etc., but don’t eat it with them).  If I eat dinner-like food, it’s in the morning.  
I count things to keep myself calm.  Steps, stoplights, passing cars, etc.  
Otherwise I am perfectly normal.  Perfectly normal, I tell you!
god, ugh

Speaking of eating, I only eat one meal a day. After work.

When I'm deep in thought, I gnaw on the middle joint of my left index finger. There's a thick layer of callus on that side of the finger from doing this, and this morning at work I noticed tooth marks in it. I thought I only did it late at night when playing solitaire games on the computer, but apparently it happens throughout the day.

I'm pretty run-of-the-mill. The weirdest thing about me, I guess, is eating light.

Not me, but the husband.....he digs out his earwax with his truck key. Drives me out of my mind, especially when he starts doing it when we are mid-conversation. I even tattled to our doctor who told him to stop it. Still does it.
Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

I actually really hate when people call it that. I'm supposed to assume someone who wears one of those beats their wife? I'm not sure what the term is trying to convey, but it's pretty dumb.

Yeah. I think I grew up thinking that was the official name for them. The only time I've seen them modeled, the guy did look a little MTV Jersey Shore, but maybe those guys are good men. Who knows.

"The connection to sleeveless shirts may be a total coincidence, but linguists do cite these medieval origins for the phrase "wife beater," to refer to an abusive spouse. The first use of "wife beater" was seen in the New York Times, for example, in 1880, to describe a man who had beat his wife. Apr 8, 2016"

Everyone's gotta be a rebel, I guess.

Being told you're delusional does not necessarily mean you're mental.

I like everything to be even, or a multiple of 5. Blush

TV volume-22, number of bananas on the bunch I buy from the store-4/6, total dollar amount of gas I put in the truck-$40/$50/$65.

So much so that when I see someone else fiddling with their volume settings, on their own shit, and they stop at 19 or 33, it irks me. hobo
