In my new batch of purveying the Reader's Digest website I've found this

http://www.rd.com/living-healthy/are-you-normal-or-nuts-your-questions-answered/article177191.html

Quote:

We all like to think we're regular folk, but even the most straitlaced among us has a boatload of habits that are downright peculiar. Which is as it should be. We're only human, which means we're all a little weird. As Whoopi Goldberg put it, "'Normal' is nothing more than a cycle on a washing machine." So it's a sure bet that your nutty quirk-the one you think is so freakishly unusual-is shared by plenty of other people, whether it's an addiction to lip balm (yes, there's a Lip Balm Anonymous) or peladophobia (fear of bald people).


Interesting explanation of a lot of common 'ailments' people like to keep quiet to themselves for fear of being thought of as 'different'.



Part 2 is here

Which ones do you do?

Reading the articles, I recognised a few that I do myself


Refering to myself in the 3rd person

Counting everything, and sometimes trying to make that number divisible by 3. I can only count up, I can never 'ignore' anything I must keep going until the number i've counted is divisible by three.




Maybe I watched The Holy Grail too often...

Of the things on the list I refer to myself in the 3rd person and I do see scenes in my head of all the embarrasing things I have done

Me : Think i'll cash in
Croupier : Did you know that each of your stacks are one short?
*Blames someone at random*

We were saying now that everything has died down with people moving house etc we're going to have to go back more often again.

Will keep you posted when we go next Smile
