*not sure if this is the right place to post this...*

The title is pretty much self-explanatory.. I'm guessing this is a nice way to find out more about each other and feel more normal at the same time  Razz

I suppose I should have the embarrassing privilege of going first. I have the weird habit of naming inanimate objects - among many others, my PC is called Pooky, my two teddies are Cuchy and Wookems (see a pattern yet?) and I even named my cloth used to clean my glasses, Pinky.
I also have the habit of arranging everything on my desk in a straight line. My lamp, speakers, everything has to be set perfectly or I'll got nuts. I often eat tic-tacs in even numbers..

Janny ... that sounds a little like OCD Smile

Hmmm .. weird habits ... this one is a little gross .. maybe. I tend to bite my finger nails a lot at work ... especially when I'm stressed and I'll kinda just spit the nail out Smile in the general area.

Recently I moved cubes and one of my friends got my old cube. She asked if I ate a lot of popcorn ... because there were all these popcorn kernels around.  I told her ... umm .. those are my fingernails Smile She wasn't too happy Smile

Weird habits, that's an interesting one.

Like I said before, I don't watch TV much. Around once-twice a week usually on the weekends so on average 2-4 hours per week is how much I watch.
My habit is that when I am watching, I tend to be either just standing up for the whole time or sitting down with my legs folded beneath me, very much like the Japanese style. I don't know why, it just feels comfortable while watching something. I don't like couches much and chairs are worse haha.

^ Have you tried to sit on a bed while watching tv? I hate couches too, they're not as comfy as they seem..

I have a habit of falling asleep during movies and shows. But that's probably because I watch them from my bed (my room pretty much kicks ass, you know).

I can't think of any proper habits though... I'm sure someone will be able to point out something annoying I do Razz

I have periods at work when I'm not doing anything, so I have a habit of playing Spider Solitaire on the computer. I find that I can't leave it alone. It's a free version with the "Undo" command turned off, so it's more of a challenge; I win a game about once a week. Sometimes I'll play it for awhile, then I'll say, "Enough!" and quit and a few minutes later I'm at it again.

Yes I tried but I still prefer the floor, unless it's my sister's bed in her room. Her bed is very comfortable. Razz

Eh, sometimes when I'm writing, I have a tendency to get a little too into my own little world.  When doing so, depending on what I'm doing, I'll end up behaving very differently.  Like when I'm walking, I might appear as if I have no idea where I'm walking to with a sort of swagger.  If someone's talking to me, I might end up repeating myself a lot while not completely tied up in the conversation.  There's another part that I might abruptly laugh at an idea for a story.  That last parts mostly for a few of my characters for each of my stories, they're odd like that and I enjoy thinking how would they react to this portion of a story, or how they would react to another portion of the particular story they are in.

This is actually one of my habits too, though I'm sure you write a lot more. When I conjure up a new idea or scene which I find fitting, I usually laugh out briefly. Hah! Smile
