how are you weird?
 
I cannot shave my legs because it aggravates my eczema. However, I can use those stinky lotions that dissolve the hair away. How can toxic chemicals be easier on my skin???

That's just one of my many, many weird-isms :toothy4:

What's yours?

I talk to myself allllll the time.

It's not like I have an dialogue were I answer questions that I ask myself or anything and have a full on conversation with myself. I think it's just me thinking aloud. I have plenty of other weird quirks but that's one that's really transparent because sometimes I forget and do it in public! I can't help it. I used to be embarrassed but I'm over it now.


I also love being in the dark.

My dad used to call me his little vampire. I think I must have excellent night vision or something because people are always walking into rooms that I am and say "Can you see anything...?" as they turn on the light. However, it's never really pitch black dark just more dim than most people prefer. I do like it pitch black when I sleep though!

I don't like most cakes/candy/sweets and I'm indifferent to chocolate.

How am I weird? Let me count the ways... I'll be back.

I whistle a lot, especially at work often without realizing it. People always comment about it to me so it must be unusual. I think I do it because I just constantly have music on in my head so I must let it out either by humming, singing, whistling, or dancing.

SunshineGrrl 06-16-2012 08:27 PM

I talk to myself all the time, too! Like working my way through problems or just b**ching to myself about the systems or someone high maintenance. The other 3 people in my immediate cubicle area have learned not to pay attention to me unless I pop my head up over the cubicles at them. But they laugh at my personal tirades all the time!

I also have to have white noise in my room when I sleep. Like a box fan to drown out the noises of the city outside and house. If the fan don't work, sleep ain't happening.

I also absolutely have to have a body pillow to sleep. Dunno why, but if I don't have mine, I'll make one out of regular pillows.

I'm pretty particular with my food textures...and my food can't touch on my plate, but that was another thread.

When I'm in a raging bad mood at work, I'll randomly mouth lalalalala to myself. It's from some reduced calorie commercial talking about how dreamy it is and some guy asked if it's dreamier than him singing in a hot air balloon with rainbows or something. I don't know why I do it, but it's a stupid commercial and singing the lalalalala part puts me in a slightly better mood!

*gasp!* I'm not the only one?! Pastries do not interest me at all. Never have. I always hated cake as a kid, plus I'd much rather eat my carbs in the form of fruit :)

My mother says I'm weird in that I'll eat an apple/banana/6oz container of yogurt over the course of multiple days.

Speckla 06-16-2012 09:52 PM

I'm weird in the fact that I know it's ok to be different and it's not abnormal to try to be normal and fit in a group of fake-normal acting people but they're not normal and the person in question is probably more normal than most.

MissKris 06-16-2012 11:02 PM

I don't like apple pie, peach cobbler, cheesecake, toffee, butterscotch. I don't like the following ice creams: coffee, mint chocolate chip, strawberry. I talk to my food b4 I eat it. Chocolate and fruit don't go together unless it's a strawberry.....PERIOD. Mint and chocolate don't go together.....PERIOD. I hate rice and beans in my burrito(it's a textural thing). Not really on the Mexican food thing anyhow. When I was in school, I preferred taking a test rather than writing a paper.

I do cheers for no reason. Cheerleading stayed in my spirit from day one(some time in '93). I love peaches and pinapples, but not as a flavor for a beverage. I love bananas, but I find anything banana flavored totally nasty(pudding, smoothies, candy, etc.). Cakes with a fruit filling or flavor is totally nasty. If I make a red velvet cake, cream cheese frosting is out of the question(vanilla bean icing pleez). Oatmeal, no....Cream of Wheat, yes(again a textural thing). Fried okra, totally nasty. My DVD line up includes action, comedy, stand up comedy, Bible stories, and period films(pride & prejiduce, jane eyre, etc.). Bring it On and Bring it On Again are awesome......the rest of them are just plain stupid. I've never seen Menace II Society, but I have seen Steel Magnolias. My stand up comic faves are inconsistent with one another.....Kevin Hart, Jamie Foxx, Jeff Dunham, Jim Gaffigan, the Blue Collar guys, and Latham Ent.

One Sunday I praised my wig right off my head but God wouldn't let me stop so I kept going with it in my hand.....am I weird enough yet???!!!???!!!

I'm always dancing to the music that constantly plays in my head.
I find peanut butter nauseating, literally.
I don't blink often at all, people have to constantly remind me or they feel i'm staring at them.
Lastly I have a very sick gruesome sense of humor.
Oh and i like it dark most of time. Pitch black darkness is very relaxing.

I think there are many ways other people find me weird. But really, I'm just me - and don't try to be anyone else.


One thing which turns out to be less unusual than I thought is I can't drink regular milk but can drink organic. I'm fine with other dairy products, but normal milk gives me massive stomach pains which feel like a knife cutting me open from the inside out. I don't remember how I ended up finding out that was the case, as I stayed away from any type of milk for several years. One of my friends thought he was lactose intolerant and that his lactase pills just didn't help enough until he realized he was fine when he didn't take them for other dairy products. Remembering my situation, he decided to try and discovered that he had to have organic milk as well and would be fine. It just seems weird to me!

I spell out words in my head and group the letters in 2s or 3s. Words that can't be grouped like that I spell over and over again until I'm ok with them. I also rearrange lighters at counters so they are all up front in their display. I have many OCD tendencies though.


My fat thumb will make mistakes.

I do this too!! Only in groups of 2's, and when it has an odd number of letters I have to keep going until I accept that one is in the middle. I have other OCD tendencies too, most of them related to sleeping:

-closet cant be open at all, even a little crack when I'm sleeping
-I need water by my bed at all times even if I'm not thirsty or it's hard to fall asleep
-same with putting on Chapstick and lotioning my hands before bed

I know there are more that I just can't place right now.

Weirdly enough I am the same! I always thought it was me just being really strange :') I am fine with any other type of dairy but milk can have be doubled over in pain for a good few hours..I'll have to try organic instead :)

Ways in which I'm weird:
I drink Tea. ALOT...all day, everyday

I can only eat hot meals...yeahh I just can't stand cold food. I don't know what it is but it just makes me feel queasy...I eat a hot meal for every meal everyday

curlypearl 06-17-2012 05:03 PM

^^^Never mind that - you are weird because you have a bee in your avatar (ugh!!!).

But seriously Po :sunny: what is sss? I tried looking it up and I decided I needed the Cliff Notes Version from you.

Take care you weirdo you and all the other weirdos and weirdees out there. :cheers:

Let me know if it helps! Be careful in case that doesn't solve it for you...

I like to say mundane things in French in a ridiculous sexy Monique Thubert-inspired voice (but only among family).

I'll sometimes hear a trashy song and imagine the same melody done with a classy arrangement (for instance, a Billie Holliday-ish version of Britney's Oops I did it again).

And, oh yeah, I went through this phase where I'd put food in my hair. I blame you curlies for that one!
