Do you have a mini-obsession or idiosyncrasy? My sister cannot go to bed unless all her dishes are done....
says Sukiesnow on Apr 1st 17 (#807448)
I have several idiosyncrasies...but the one I would call a mini-obsession is the fact that I cannot go anywhere without lip balm...
I got caught once in -29 degree weather in Calgary...those dry lips and the more you lick them...the more they get wet...and then frozen...ever since then I've been obsessed with lip balm...
The room I am in now has...hmm...5 of them situated at various stations.
says Sukiesnow on Apr 1st 17 (#2535335)
Soft lips are a good thing:)
says Carla on Apr 1st 17 (#2535339)
I can kind of imagine how that would be an issue with severe cold and zero humidity. I often do the same thing with sun screen in the summer here.
says OzSurfer on Apr 1st 17 (#2535575)
Yes, in fact, I find it very difficult to pass up opportunities, such as these, to ask particularly random questions about the subject manner. For example;
Let's say you had your lips surgically removed for some reason (of which I think it inappropriate to go into now) would you still have to take your lip balm with you everywhere?
says AliceD on Apr 21st 17 (#2550711)
So you're saying it's not a real obsession? :) Maybe not...since, yes, I would lose it if I had no lips...

I have a thing about my laundry.
Hate to iron
My whites are overbleached so have to be washed twice. White should be...white.
And i hate...really hate
To have my picture taken

There is a row off 12 light switches at the bottom of the mainstairs in my home. I push them all down before I go to bed. Even if that means I have to go to the location of other switches to turn off the lights that I turned on by pushing them. Even if I have to climb the stairs in pitch dark. I don't know why. I just have the mini-obsession that they should all be down. Sometimes I even go to all the switches in the house and make sure they are down which means eventually I will be walking around in the dark trying to find my way to bed.

I am much like your sister. I can't go to bed in a dirty house. Everything has to be spotless.
says Tiffanee on Apr 1st 17 (#2535389)
I can't go to bed with your sister, unless her dishes are done.
Then again, seriously, I have a bit of OCD, which is weird because I live in a home of chaos. I haven't even cleaned for months and yet, I still suffer from the condition. I guess it's selective, which makes it even... Weirder.
says ZonkeyBalls on Apr 1st 17 (#2535424)
A bit OCD myself. Got into making home like scenes inside walnut shells. Lots of tedious effort and precision while completely ignoring the mess on the garage floor. I don't think it is actually OCD at that point. More like Obsessive Single Track Mind Disorder. :)
says DW2 on Apr 22nd 17 (#2551570)
You are just weird. Nothing more to it.
says ZonkeyBalls on Apr 22nd 17 (#2551571)
I hope there's not more to it. Otherwise the whole universe is in my head. And I can never allow myself to die for the sake of said Universe.. :). Zonkey just called me "Weird". There's got to be an Amirite trophy for that! :)
says DW2 on Apr 22nd 17 (#2551575)
You just won twenty kilograms of cocaine.
says ZonkeyBalls on Apr 22nd 17 (#2551577)
Telling you though, you actually make a working door on a Walnut shell. And a window next to it that looks like a window... you are **** up and should seek help. :)

I am perhaps a bit overly obsessed with personal hygiene.. only because of the feedback I've had from women over the years that all told me horror stories of their partners and ex boyfriends who had no idea how to wash. So now I can have up to five showers in a day, and never leave the house unless I'm clean enough to have **** with.
says OzSurfer on Apr 1st 17 (#2535579)
Five showers a day? Mate, I hate to point this out, but you are insane. Well, insane and not having enough ****.
says ZonkeyBalls on Apr 1st 17 (#2535590)
well not every day, some days just two, but when the weather is really hot here, it's more like 5 to keep the sweat away, especially after the gym, or a swim etc. Yes more **** greater than zero would be awesome
says OzSurfer on Apr 1st 17 (#2535593)
I have huge love for both: my left and my right hand.
says ZonkeyBalls on Apr 1st 17 (#2535594)
When ever I think about that, my hands get a headache and they tell me not tonight
says OzSurfer on Apr 1st 17 (#2535600)
So, it's rather the wild and not the domesticated pussy you're after? Kangaroos have hell of a kick, I've been told.
says ZonkeyBalls on Apr 1st 17 (#2535603)
Just a good friend is good enough for me as they're hard to come by. If anything more developes that's a bonus.

MOVE BACK TO THE OCEAN!!!!!
says DW2 on Apr 22nd 17 (#2551584)
I can't go to sleep without checking to make sure the door is locked and everything is off. Can't leave a room without flipping the switch. Yes I have turned the lights off on people . I have to make sure everything is off like the oven before leaving.Yes once I drove 30 minutes back to my house because I was unsure. I can't stand wrinkles in my clothing.
says Lil_Princess on Apr 5th 17 (#2539024)
You can't stand wrinkles in your clothing? I have you pegged as a blue jeans girl.
says Sukiesnow on Apr 24th 17 (#2552810)
I do occasionally wear blue jeans. At work I have to dress professionally however I don't always do that. Today it's a jeans, t-shirt & tennis shoes kinda day
says Lil_Princess on Apr 24th 17 (#2552871)
How can you dress professionally if you have to drive around forklifts, etc?
says Sukiesnow on Apr 24th 17 (#2553114)
It's still a requirement. My boss has a fit if I wear tennis shoes. Today however I said screw and wore jeans, a t-shirt, and tennis shoes. I have to sort pallets and I decided I was going to be comfy
says Lil_Princess on Apr 24th 17 (#2553233)
Can't go to bed and leave dirty dishes in the sink.
says StarzAbove on Apr 21st 17 (#2550464)
I wish others were like that I wash as I use dishes so the kitchen is always clean. But then it's easy to do when you live on your own... kids would make it impossible lol
says OzSurfer on Apr 21st 17 (#2550566)
Even after hosting a family get together, when I'm dead tired, I won't go to bed until I clean up the kitchen. I can't stand to wake up to an awful mess in the mornings.
Kudos to you, my friend, you sound like a very clean and neat person.
says StarzAbove on Apr 21st 17 (#2550757)
I can't sleep during an active Chess game online. I'll be up every 15 minutes. Therefore games that take days don't work for me. I need timed matches. :)
says DW2 on Apr 21st 17 (#2550593)
That's actually a good habit
says Sunny_the_skeptic on Apr 21st 17 (#2550749)
Not to be an azzhole but...I need to have an orgasm every morning or my day doesn't work...like those who cant function without coffee
says RECRUIT on Apr 22nd 17 (#2551377)
There's actually some old Chinese stuff that says that when you have an orgasm you are literally draining yourself of energy. I don't necessarily disagree with that. :)
says DW2 on Apr 22nd 17 (#2551585)
I guess self-serve is in order...what're you gonna do when your 92?
