Pet Peeves/Random Facts/Odd Habits

Hey guys, I just got super bored, so I decided to put this up and see what others might confess about themselves...

I know I've got a heck of a lot of these and I could maybe find out why in the world I do some of these things.

So whatever it is, something that sets you off, or a weird habit, anything. I know everyone has confessions, and I figured I'd share mine!


1. I can't stand when people spell "you" like U or YU or YUH. Especially that last one. They both have three freaking letters! It's almost like people try to sound dumb.

2. Every time I lock or unlock a door, I check to make sure it really worked.

3. I absolutely have to pop/crack every single joint in my body before I go to bed.

4. Sometimes I forget to breathe. Like I'll be looking at somethng all spaced out and I'll take shorter and shorter breaths until I just stop breathing. But, I always catch my breath with a sigh or yawn.

5. I can make a hole in my shoulder. Well, more like a dip.

6. If I'm walking on tile I won't touch the lines.

7. I count everything by 8's.

8. I LOVE Kristen Bell. Always.

9. I wear my Vans shoes too much. I think I overly-love them.

10. I think guys with Aussie accents are insane, mad hot.

11. If a guy plays guitar or bass, he's automatically 10X sexier.

12. Even if there is a clean, empty cup right by the sink, I still drink from the faucet.

13. I love the smell of fuel.

14. I hate Cheetos with a burning passion. I think they are the most disgusting thing on Earth.

15. I'm a grammar/punctuation cop.

16. I'm into mental institutes, dreams, psychics, etc. I think that mind-bending stuff is just so cool.

17. I never close a shampoo/conditioner bottle by hand, I always tap it against the shower wall to close it.

18. In the good guy/bad guy stories, I tend to take the villain's side for some reason.

19. I've never sneezed more that twice in a row.

20. I get the hiccups fairly often.

Sorry there are so many

Enough about me, how about you guys?

I can't fall asleep without cuddling my dog.

The sound of crinkly wrappers makes me angry.

I love the sound of horses eating. Especially when they freeze to listen to something, ears up and in mid chew.

It takes me at least 20 minutes to get out of bed everyday, whether I work or not.

I hate wearing pants lol.

My favorite thing in the world is getting my hair gently petted.

I'm afraid of dead rodents and dead fish.

My self as well as my place is always a mess, but my animals are immaculately cared for at all times. I'm sure I'm not the only one that has this quirk!

I will eat anything as long as I am not aware of what its made of.

I once gave myself a black eye with an ice cream scoop because the ice cream was frozen solid but I was too excited and wanted to consume it immediately.

The sound of wind going through trees is therapeutic to me.

Up until a few years ago, I always wore socks when I slept.

Awesome idea for a thread, everyone has their own weird little quirks!!!

I need to be symmetrical. Like, if I step on a crack on the sidewalk with one foot, I need to step on a crack with the other foot or else it just drives me nuts. Or if I rub the palm of my hand with one finger, I need to rub the palm of my other hand immediately after.

I'm abnormal.

1.) Sometimes I get into horrible moods were if go ballistic if someone (my horse included) touches me. I especially hate it when my horse swings her head around and hits me. I go crazy.

2.) I have a girl crush on Alex Kingston. It's unhealthy.

3.) I had when I can hear someone else's TV from my room.

4.) I'm horribly afraid of animals who walk on two legs. It all started when I saw a scary werewolf movie as a child... It started a cascade of nightmares about chupacabras and other two-legged creatures.

5.) My worst "realistic" fear is being trapped under water. I once saw a program on the TV about some guy whose canoe turned over. He was swept down river and got trapped under an ice shelf, unable to come to the surface for air. That is the worst thing I can ever imagine.

6.) I'm weirdly disproportionate. I'm 5 foot three inches tall with noticeably short legs, a weirdly long upper body, tiny waist, and am fluffy everywhere else.

7.) I hate it when people laugh at me when I'm seriously pissed off. I guess I have a "I cannot take you seriously with that face" thing going on.

8.) I remember everything I read.

9.) My best subject is history; my worst is Spanish.

10.) I hate clothes. I wish I could go nude all the time. (Is that a weird thing to say in public?)

11.) I'm a pop culture reference master. I tend to slip them in as savvy-speech bonuses just to see if anyone gets it.

12.) My favorite food in the world is grapes. I love grapes.

13.) I would watch Doctor Who forever.

14.) I assign everybody in my life a theme song.

I touch my face/eyes too much

I hate it when someone bumps into me. Seriously ticks me off,even when I know it was an accident. Really sucks since I work in a small space and it happens way too much.

I sleep with my car every night, living stuffed animal.

I sometimes have temper issues, and am furious for no real reason. Not a good quality around animals.

I'm a picker! Can't leave things alone.

99% of the time my face comes out weird in pictures.

I blast my music when im alone in the car but have to have it really low when im riding with someone else, it stresses me out to talk over it.

I love scary movies like Paranormal activity but hate the ones with weird crunch people things that crawl up walls. Not. Okay.

I cross my arms or mess with my necklace to make myself more comfortable

Cant walk slow, cant stand being behind someone walking slow. I even speed through my house and to school even if I am way early, I have to concentrate to walk slower.

Tall people (5'6" and up) annoy me when I cant see whats going on.

I have a really hard time just sitting and watching someone else play video-games, Im a backseat gamer. . .

I wear sweatshirts 98% of the time, even in the summer. Even if I am sweaty Ill just roll the sleeves.

In 2001 Silent Hill 2 was release and I watched my cousins play it, I was 10yrs, I still strain my eyes in the dark around my house to see if those nurses got in.
. . . . lol

I am afraid of heights, I cant even climb trees, but two of my most favorite things are roller coasters and flying in planes (especially when there is turbulence!)

Ok guys prepare to facepalm and laugh at my ******ed habbits and pet peeves:

1. I can watch the same movie over and over and over again day after day and NEVER EVER EVER get sick of it

2. Sometimes I convince myself characters in books are real

3. When I'm watching the tv, the volume setting HAS to be in the 10's, otherwise I totally freak out.

4. I can't jump without doing a weiord face, look at ANY picture of me showjumpingn and I'll have the most arkward expression on my face.

5. Cosentino from Australias got Talent is THE...HOTTEST...GUY...IN...THE....WORLD!!!!

6. I say 'like' atleast 5 times a minute

7. I love saying ANYWAYSSSS

8. I laugh a lot when I hurt myself

9. My favourite movies are kids movies, like I actually love watching wow-wow-wubzie with my little brother

10. When I act, I get so into my part that if my lover dies in the play I cry in real life

11. I get so worked up over some things I'll cry for hours on end, even if it's something stupid

12. I bump into doors and appologise to them

13. Sometimes I just hate on everyone. Like EVERYONE. If anyone touches me, talks to me or even so much as LOOKS at me when I'm in that mood, you can garantee they're going to be sore the next day

14. I'm 14 and I still play imaginary games... AND PROUD OF IT!

15. I still kinda, might, slightly maybe believe in faries

16. Up until 6 months ago I was convinsed every white foal was a baby unicorn, and God help anyone who disagreed with me

17. I can make myself feel really sick on command

18. I also sometimes forget to breathe

19. I get so lost in thought sometimes that I am oblivious to anyone and everyone, someone can yell my name through a loud speaker and I won't hear them

20. I've always wanted to be named Tiger-Lily

Marlea, I have to have the volume setting evenly divisible by 5 even if I'm turning it down to turn it off. I can't leave the volume on anything else. You're not alone lol

ME TOO! I'm exactly the same way. Even if it's something involuntary, like a muscle spasm in my right thigh, I have to twitch my left thigh to make it even or I will go nuts.
