    I Eat Butter...and...

    Well...if I have buttery toast I like to lick the toast...and the butter knife. And if I'm sad the thing I eat to cheer me up is, yep, butter- the fattier, and saltier, the better. I am also wary of food that anyone outside my immediate family has touched, unless it is in a...

    My Strange Habit

    My strange habit is adding all the numerals of a number to see if they equal to thirteen. If say, I were reading a book, I would count the numerals of the page I plan to stop. If they all added up to thirteen, I continue reading at least one more page even if I am so sleepy. I...

    Does Your Girlfriend Know?

    that you look at me like that? she's right over there, do you always treat her this way? how do you think she feels? I hope she's doing the same thing behind your back.

    And when I'm walking a dark road...

    I used to fear the dark, just like every little kid. It was time when monsters and nightmares came to us, to the little ones, as our parents were somewhere else sleeping, unable to protect us from whatever was creeping underneath little beds. I don’t know what you did, my...

    Food

    I have weird habits with all sorts of foods 1) Froot Loops - I have a battle with them.  I eat all the colors minus the blue and purple and then, when I have them to themselves, I won't look at my bowl so I'm unbiased about which ones I eat.  When I get...

    Direction of My Life.

    I always make sure the last movement my body makes is on the left hand side, or moving towards the left. Like if I'm walking, I will always put my left foot down last. But I have to make sure the right side has made the first move. This way it balances out, but I'm not sure...

    My Strange Habit That Everyone Who Looks At Me Will Know

    The one extremely weird habit I have is that when I'm sitting down to study, I have my elbow on my table and my head on my hand which allows for easy access for me to rub and sort of pick at my eyelashes. I have like half a centimetre on both ends of my upper eyelids that are...

    Knuckle Nibbling

    I have had my habit for ten years now, I am 23.  I have looked all over the web to try to find others who have the same.  I take the skin covering my knuckles (apparently called knuckle pads) and put the skin of the knuckle pads in my mouth and gently nibble/pinch with my lips...

    People Are Strange When You're a Stranger

    I have a very weird eating habit. I like to dip my McDonald's french fries and cheeseburgers in vanilla ice cream. I think it gives it better flavor! I would choose ice cream over ketchup any day. When I go to Mr. Gatti's I get ice cream and cheese sticks and I dip...

    Not Strange, Really

    I couldn't find a simple group about bad habits, so I chose this group instead. If there's anything more annoying, it's all my habits I have. They're awful. -nail biting since I was probably five or six years old -finger cracking since I was probably eight or nine -rocking back...

    Stotting, Running, Almost Dancing

    When I'm alone and don't have to worry about other people seeing me, I do not move at all like other people. I'll run up and down the hallways, jump about, move almost like I'm dancing, albeit in an odd and flailing and silly looking kind of way. I have no idea why I do this or...

    I guess you could call it a habit

    but I couldn't find a better group to place it in. Ever since I was younger and my sister was born I developed a liking for playing with hair. She got dolls and I began playing with the doll's hair. I used to cut the hair too. I still like hair and I still take my sister's...
