I Have This "Thing" For...

Okay, so, I have this thing for certain things.  And trust me when I say I couldn't be any more vague with that comment. I am the first to admit or point out that I have eccentricity issues! I think the word is idiosyncratic. Some just call it weird.   W-h-a-t-e-v-e-r   *rolling my eyes!*

 

I have this thing for: really geeky people. The real-deal text book case geeks. The kind so geeky they can't get chicks and their clothes do not match.

I have this thing for: folded potato chips. If you are at my house and reach for a folded chip in the bowl or bag, please, step away from the chip. It is mine!

I have this thing for: getting my holiday decorations up after Thanksgiving dinner. Everybody outside, time to work off the feast.

I have this thing for: anything monogramed.

I have this thing for: scents. candles. smell-goods. aromatherapy.

 

I know I'm not alone on this. So tell me, what is your thing?

I have a thing about guys with tattoos on their necks. I want to lick them off...or bite them off. Some call it a fetish, others call it love.

I have a thing about people who use the word "aint" I will stop them in their tracks and point out that unless they are an uneducated fool who lives in the forest/desert ALONE with virtually no contact with human life forms, they ought not use that word. Now, using it in jest is a whole other 'thing' Along these same lines, the phrase "dont know nothing" drives me nuts. I will even correct strangers out in public when I hear it. I know, i know. im crazy. 

I have a thing with cheese that is cut in cubes. I will hold it between my fingers and bite off one corner, then the next then the next, then the next until its like an octagonal looking thing. Then i bite it directly in half, and then i can eat the other half.  Moral of the story- dont bring me cheese cubes.

Re: I Have This "Thing" For...

I just told my wife a couple days ago that if I'm ever diagnosed with a  terminal disease I'm going to get the entire front of my throat tattooed. And maybe the tops of my hands. It sucks that I can't get the job I want with a throat tattoo.

Ok, now then. I have a thing for hair. I like a woman with a good head of hair. Other than that, I have to have black socks. I can't wear white socks.

Oh god no. I roll with black on black. I try to buy shoes that are mostly black if not all black. I wear my regular skate shoes to work.

.... toe socks... they just make me smile when I put them on and wiggle my toes in them...

... people who feel they need to scrape every last molecule of food off their plate... I will stab you with a fork... just let it go, you won't starve.

... fun dip sticks... I hate the powder... I will go into a gas station, buy up all their fun dip, ask for scissors and separate the powder from the sticks... proceed to dump the powder packets in the trash... give back the scissors... and out the door I go with strange looks following me.... I love those things.

... symmetry... everything has to be symmetrical... otherwise I can't pay attention to anything else...

... blueberry muffins.... I have a blueberry muffin dance for when I get a blueberry muffin.... that is how much of a thing I have for them...

 Ooh, wanted to add:

... styrofoam... love it... I will squeak it together, carve into it, break it into tiny little spheres, the S packing peanuts I love because you can connect them... yeah I know they're bad for the environment... that's fine, send it all to me.

 

... and Marshmallow... especially in creme form... or Fluff as it used to be called... it's just awesome...

I used to be into luggage.

I would camouflage my bag addiction by storing suitcases in different places so my wife wouldn't see it in one area. I had pieces in the attic, in the tops of closets, etc. Every time I thought I had a handle on my "jones", I would get a mail-order luggage catalog and I would go off somewhere with my box of tissue.

I almost started on the hard stuff when I somehow got on Hartman's mailing list. As I was dialing their toll-free order line, I realized I spiraling. I hung up and sought help. I've been clean for a number of years. Most everything I had went on eBay. I'm left with a very nice set of hard-sided wheeled Samsonite and a matching set of canvas bags when I want to bum.

Although I'm about 98% cured, I still have my weak moments. I get the sweats at the luggage carousel at the airport but if I have a drink right before I get off a plane, I can usually keep it together.

Sometimes I get in trouble with roaming eyes. A girl will walk by where I'm waiting at my gate and my head will follow. She'll notice my attention and will glare at me thinking I'm staring at her rear end.

I have to explain that I was checking out her wheeled Filson carry-on.

Re: I Have This "Thing" For...

Oh finally, a topic for my OCD self...

...I'm with Anime on toe socks. Can't get enough, they brighten my day when i take of my shoes and see each of my piggies neatly covered, not having to share a room with it's 4 annoying neighbors.

...cows. I love them. Yes I'm a city girl to the bone, but something about those adorable (and yummy) creatures just make me go to mush. In fact that was my first tattoo.

...patterns and symmetry. If you have 3 chairs on your porch and 2 are white while one is black PLEASE for the love of God, put the black in the middle. I have been known to rearrange my doctors office's chairs, along with people's front porches.

...the way lunches are packed, clothes are folded, drawers are organized.... Ok yes anything to that effect. I don't care how YOU do it, as long as you don't care when I go back to re-do it and "make it better"

...Spelling. I can't stand when things are spelled wrong, especially on things that are PRINTED.  Even more annoying is when they use the wrong form of a word. Learn the meaning of there, their, and they're, or to, too, and two. 

I could go on and on.....

 

Be yourself...... Everyone else is taken!

 Toe socks ROCK!  I love them especially because I hate my feet to be hot... and strangely, toe socks keep my feet from getting hot... that and wiggling my toes is very enjoyable...

Also, I'm with you on the color symmetry thing... come on people... say it with me... BALANCE

half-popped pocorn kernals. You know? The five or six of them in the bottom of every bag? I love them with all that I am.
