Ooh, cool idea!  :)

I absolutely can NOT drink milk by itself. My fiance has tried to give me a sip telling me to just try some (he loves the stuff), but I absolutely couldn't do it. I decided not to drink plain milk when I was 7, and I haven't been able to ever since.

Weird thing is, I love it on my cereal and I put it in my coffee.

Teehee! Me too! I am exactly like this, only I add a bit of sweetner to my milk to make it more appealing.

As for me- I hate hate hate the sound of people snorting their runny noses, in paticular old men who snort deeply, and people who do little ones every 3 seconds. ecch.  [smiley=bleck.gif]

Great thread!

The first odd thing about me that comes to mind is my "superhuman" sense of smell. Believe me it's not a fun thing to have a nose that works all too well!

I love to play with my hair to find splint ends, I have little scissors that I use to trim the splits.  The more splits on one piece of hair the better. 
Yahhhh, I'm not the only one with that weird habit.  The best find is the one that has so many splits it looks like a feather.  Maybe it's hereditary because my daughter has the same habit  ???

I twirl the same chunk of hair, and I have super curly hair.  But it always has to be the same chunk that I twirl between two fingers! (hubs also noticed this and said "i think its cute that you twirl your hair like a little girl"!! :P
Okay, another odd thing about me....I do the same thing.  I've been a hair twirler since I was a little girl, I'm 38 now, you'd think I would have outgrown it.  I tend to do it more when I'm driving or thinking.  I don't feel so odd after reading this thread, lol.   [smiley=mad.gif]

Im not a hair-twirler, but i am a hair-braider!
If im sitting watching a film or something on TV,  I will absent-mindedly plait at least the 2 strips of hair on either side of my face, and sometimes i will do my whole head!

I even caught myself doing it during a meeting at work one day!  :-X

I can pick up things with my feet.. I learned to do it while pregnant!

Haha!  I've never been pregnant, but have always been able to do this.  A number of people have told me that I have 'monkey feet'. :-[

Great thread!

Ditto for me on the hair twirling and not being able to drink milk.

One of my oddities is that I am afraid of balloons and I hate the sound of a helium tank blowing them up.

I'll be back with more later.  :)

The odd thing is that I "*love* dairy products- i.e. cheese, yoguart, etc. I just hate a glass milk. No amount of Oreo dipping was ever able to cure me.

I also hate beer/lager. The taste, the smell, the look...blech.

I cant have wood in my mouth (heheheheheh)... ice lolly sticks, toothpicks, wooden fish & chip forks... it gives me the boak.

Me too!  And I can't eat anything that's even touched wood.

Something weird about my husband. His right eye squeaks *really* loudly when he rubs it. I swear you can hear it in the next room or something, it's so odd.

*raises hand*  I'm a hair twirler too, ever since I was small. I do it without even noticing, gets on my sister's nerves.

I can't drink any kind of alcohol until it gets dark. Even if I have one cocktail, I can't do it until night falls.

I can't really stand feet, cannot have mine touched and hate to touch anyone else's. The only foot I can touch besides mine are my daughter's. My DH has really bad callouses on his heels from wearing combat boots during his military days and he will threaten to touch my leg with them, drives me nuts.

Okay, here is a new one: When I was about 7 and younger, I used to *love* ketchup on Bologna.  [smiley=bleck.gif]

 I don't really care much for bologna but if I have a bologna sandwich I must have ketchup on it, and I am not a big fan of ketchup at all!

I have to "smash" my sandwiches, you know.. flatten the bread down before I eat it. No idea, but I've always done this. I also tend to take food apart when I eat it, for example when I eat pizza I eat the toppings first then the crust.
