trying to think, trying to think - can't think of any. I eat over the plate. will straighten out pictures that are crooked, attentive to detail, flee a store that has a crying baby or a kid bouncing a ball, perhaps I'm more anal-retentive? Finger nails on black boards and fork biting do not bother me at all, never understood that. People who sing out of tune make my skin crawl and a constant low repetitive hum from far distances will drives me nuts; I have super sonic hearing. I did have an amalgam filing removed once because I heard music and voices, bu I can't think of any complusions, but this thread is young....

public transportation

-i always take the left seat in the back of the next to last metro in the morning when i go to work because i know that that is where the least people go.
-i systematically take out earplugs when an accordion player comes into the metro car
-i make and read flashcards in the metro

work

-i still have and use the little plastic paper they sell with your powerbook to protect the screen from getting keyboard markings
-i dislike it when my colleague swigs from his water bottle
-i reorganize my desk each time i finish a job
-i joke about people borrowing my stapler but whenever possible try to get it back into my drawer

home

- i never open the window at night in a room that has the light on. If a window is open, it has to be somehow curtained off by another security door.
- i chop my tomatoes in half and then into little squares.

there are many more, i'm afraid

I regret to inform you that those are merely quirks and not full-blown compulsions.

Cubed tomatoes, hmm… is that anything like cherry tomatoes without the crust?

-I hate it when people read over my shoulder, but have no reaction if they're sitting next to me. Same thing with watching movies. You have no idea how many times I've had to reposition some member of my family next to the laptop.
-auntie and T.I.P. - I'm the complete opposite when it comes to glasses. They HAVE to be touching each other, or else the little clinky sound happens when you take one out. And that would be horrible.
-When I see people bending the covers of books backwards while they read, I instinctively cringe.
-Once pizza has been refrigerated, I never reheat it. I always convince myself that it'll "take too much time", but in reality I have this hatred of all things microwaved. I dunno why...
-Whenever I leave the house for longer than 1/2 an hour, I always bring at least one book with me.
-Whenever I run or lift weights, I always have to end the session with the total minutes being a multiple of five or with the number of repetitions being a multiple of ten.

Breakfast lunch and dinner, counter-clockwise, main course last.
If the food touches each other, it's "no good", and must be moved to another section, until all the "good" food is gone.

Locks: check X 3.
Lights: X 3
toilet paper: 3 pieces, or multiples of 3 up to nine, depending on the current tp issue at hand

Saying "no thank-you" to the first 3 offers for anything (coffee, doors opened, $1,000,000) upon starting a new day.

Chicken/soap/bleach/hand sanitizer/ X 3.

I'm a Virgo, so I think it's mostly anal retentive behavior.

I'm a Virgo, so I already know that it's not anal retentive behavior.

Poop.

whenever I set my alarm, it can't be on a multiple of five.

ideally it should be three past some random multiple of ten past the last hour. seven works too.
