I can't fall asleep if anyone is touching me. I also have to be laying on my stomach with my arms under my pillow and my jaw positioned just the right way or I can't fall asleep. I shower 2-4 times a day, I can't help it I just like to be clean. Probably too clean. Also I am a chef so in the kitchen I have to have things done a certain way. For instance, I have to chop everything because I have a fear that other people don't understand that everything needs to be uniformly chopped. My idea of uniformly chopped and your idea of Uniformly chopped ARE NOT THE SAME...GET OUT OF MY KITCHEN BEFORE I KILL EVERYONE!!!! Right...okay so I am actually crazy.

I will steer clear of your kitchen and enjoy the food you prepare! Must be challenging to uniformly chop a person who violates your kitchen! :D

I read this last night and thought about it :p I think my biggest quirk is that 90% of the time I'm not the best housekeeper... but about once a month I have a panic and go crazy cleaning my house for hours. My bird room is always perfect, but the rest of the house... well not so much LOL

I have a stay at home husband (well, he does work just its hit and miss for his business) and I guess sometimes I just think he is going to take on more than he actually can while I'm working. But I actually hate the mess and I get so much anxiety about it sometimes I find it hard to know where to start and I can't get past that mental block to actually get anything done! So silly, and bad.. but my birds are happy at least :p I need lessons from all of you super tidy friends!

Another quirk, I can not walk up stairs, I have to run. I don't know why, but I never just calmly walk up or down a set of stairs, it has to be done as quickly as possible. I've been tripped by our 30 pound cat running behind me many times.

Also, I hoard papers and receipts that I never end up needing in my purse. No idea why I even take a receipt to be honest but I always do haha

I like to run and jump into bed so that monsters (which I don't even believe in) can't grab my feet.
