That quirky thing about yourself that no one knows...

    ...but about which you are happy.

    What the hell am I talking about?

    I have no taste for chocolate. Never crave it, can look at it and not want any. Comes in handy when you are on a diet, and your wife wants something sweet for desert.

    That's the kind of thing I'm talking about. What is your secret quirk?

    So many to choose from. I'll start with a tame one: I'm a recovering teen soap addict. I've seen every episode of My So-Called Life, Dawson's Creek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, most of Gilmore Girls, The O.C. and One Tree Hill and about half of Beverly Hills, 90210 (the original only). I don't watch any of the new ones and rarely will Netflix one of those. And I don't admit it to people I know in real life, even when they're having a conversation about a show. It drives me fucking crazy when they say something incorrect, though. (Buffy and So-Called are exceptions to that rule. They're just great shows.)

    Second one: I've masturbated while watching all those shows except So-Called, which was too good to waste and less explicit anyway.

    I have to pop my fingers in the same order every time. Say I pop my right thumb first, then it goes pointer finger, middle, ring, pinkie ... and the reverse for my left hand. I don't know why that is.

    Probably more OCD than quirky, but I cannot stand to do chores "partially". I can't mow the front yard only, or mow without trimming and edging. When I wash my car, I can't just wash it - I have to wash it, vacuum the inside, clean the windows inside and out, etc. I can't vacuum one room of the house - I have to vacuum all the rooms both upstairs and downstairs. If a ceiling fan is the only dusty thing in a room, I still have to dust everything in the room and not just the ceiling fan.

    If I'm mowing and it starts raining or something so I can only do half of the job, it's to the point where it would keep me from sleeping that night.

    I absolutely abhor taking a dump in public places.

    Be it my office, at a game, etc. I've worked at my current shop for eight years and I doubt I've taken eight dumps in the building over that whole time.

    My home or my hotel room on a road trip ... that's where I shit. And some of those hotel rooms are even borderline.

    My memory is otherwise unremarkable except I can remember really stupid trivia, like Tedd from HIMYM once had a spot on Law and Order, testifying under the scrutiny of Jack McCoy.

    We may need to revive the home bowl syndrome thread from two years ago ...

    When at work at night, I go up a few floors in the building to advertising to take a dump. There's no one on the floor, and the cleaning crew comes after they've all gone home so the bathroom is clean and private.

    In the rare times I do take a shit at work, I never do it on the floor my office is on.

    I need to do a hard-target search of my office to find that elusive bathroom you've found.

    I ONLY take a dump in public places. And spectators must be present. The greener the grass, the more I spread my ass.

    Also, I read at least one book per week. Oftentimes two.

    YGBFKM just chimed in and said I can't pronounce anything correctly. He says I have a giant vocabulary and obsession with words, yet I can't actually speak.

    And I am incapable of screwing lids back on anything correctly, apparently.

    This has been fun.
