Five Weird Habits About Me -

Warning.. this is not a meme or a tag. I am just hoping some of ya pick it up. I picked this from dependable renegade and Ntodd's place.
Here goes...

1. I do not like to leave the toaster oven or the cofee machine plugged in at home before going to work. I am just scared of those things catching fire! ;-)

2. When I am in bed, and I want to sleep I lie on my right side. When I have trouble sleeping (which is rare) I lie on my left side. Miraculously this will get me in that transitionary period where I know the sleep fairy has almost got me and I turn back to my right side and that is it, I am asleep. I can't sleep when I am on my back.

3. I will run my fingers over my moustache when I am deep in thought. This especialy happens when I am reading something. Maybe I am restless and no I don't think it is attention deficit disorder.

4. When I am dead tired, my legs get restless. I cannot keep them still. I will move them and occassionally hit something like a table or a chair leg and when it happens at home, *A* always shoos me off to bed. If this happens at a party or when we are out, it is a sure sign to leave.

5. I have exactly one can of coke everyday when I am at work. I finish it over a couple of hours. The it goes right next to my monitor. I repeat this the next day and then at the end of the day I walk over to the break area, wash them and then they go to the recycling container. I don't keep more than 2 cans. And then it repeats. Things in twos...
Update: Nowwhere girl in the comments asked if the coke in the can does not go flat over 2 hours. Yes it does and leads me to add another weird factoid. I do not drink the coke cold, it is always at room temperature.

Anyone feel like sharing their weird/strange/funny habits?

I thought I was paranoid about unplugging the toaster and stuff. Glad to know I have company. That must have been terrible to see everythign burnt down :(
Ethan will check out your list too.
Actually I only have a can of coke a day whoch is about 350 ml. I know people who drink more.
Keshi as for dancing at traffic lights.. do they have traffic cams at lights?
If so I am sure they have video highlights of ya someplace ;)

I actually will spike icecream sometimes int he microwave for a few seconds to soften it.

You don't fall for hunky dudes? heh
Guess the nerds must take heart then? :)

Me. It's more like just an ordinary knock. Legs fine.

:-) Mine...

1. When at ease/in a relaxed state of mind, sitting on the train or idle my palm is always curled, like a babies, two forefingers of one hand held by the other hand. I often catch myself in this weird state of existence and think it's odd.

2. Everyday as a ritual to pass the subway ride I pick a lucky rider and give that person a mental makeover. When I get off 7 stops later in the city that person looks absolutely fabulous in my head.

3. I talk to myself usually when I'm struggling with a decision. I play the role of the devil and the angel and I have a conversation with myself. Sometimes I use different voices. It's a tie so far.

4. I never ever support nor do anything illegal or unethical. I'm quite anal retentive about it to a flaw and have pissed people off by not indulging in silly harmless activities. And this is weird because I'm fairly insane and don't have a straight view of the world.

5. I cry at movies, tv shows, even lame stories between strangers on the train, commercials. Yes even something that lasts 30 seconds has the ability to make me bawl. And this is weird because I'm a badass and generally prefer making people cry. :-)
