Ooh I love ketchup, I'm a ketchup fiend. I even eat it by itself :) ( yeah kinda gross I know )

The oddest thing I have ketchup with: scrambled egg. OK maybe that's not the oddest thing I've had with it, gotta think about that one. I've had many, many weird things with ketchup.

I have an irrational fear of spontaneously combusting.  :o  When I was younger it was so bad that I couldn't sit on the inside seat in resturant booths.  I'm better now.   ;)

On the eating sandwiches topic, I can't just eat it.  I have to tear it into little pieces first.

When I have a high fever ( around 103 and up ), I talk almost the entire time in my sleep. Which is why I don't get a good rest when I have a high fever, because I always wake myself up with my constant talking.

I have to eat ice cream with an iced tea spoon (the kind with the long handles).  Even if it's just a single scoop in a bowl, I can't eat it with any other type of utensil.

I have to trim every single bit of fat off meat, even the tiniest little string of it.  I just can't deal with the texture.  Just thinking about it makes my stomach churn.

I can't bite into bananas; I've got to break off pieces with my fingers, then eat it.  No clue why, but it's the only way I'll eat them.

OMG.  Me too!  It makes me gag!  And this one time at 4-H camp, I had to do this punishment with this boy at the evening campfire, because we were caught wandering off and we each had to start at one of the ends of the banana and eat towards each other and I honestly thought I was going to throw up!  Still a vivid memory 28 years later!!!

I pick up things with my toes....never had kids either....

The scarf on your head for a headache/sleeping is an old yogic/ayurvedic remedy.  I have a light *ace-bandage* type thing that I wrap around my head for headaches - works a treat.

Milk is not my favorite. I will have it on cereal and in coffee - but not just a glass of it - I can't even watch my husband drink a glass of milk - ick!

I love apple pie - apple juice, etc - but I can't eat a raw apple - ick!

I have a *serious* aversion to rubber-bands.  When I first started my current job - they were the first things in the bin at my new desk! Can't even stand being near someone's desk if there are rubber bands on their desk.....

i don't like coffee...or anything that tastes like coffee, latte, mocha, espresso, toffee...none of it.  yuck!! 

and it wasn't until about 5 years ago that i could drink anything "hot" like hot chocolate, tea, etc.  everything always had to be either room temperature or cold.

I will read anything that has print on it, boring stuff like shampoo bottles, the informational crap in front of the phone book, ingredients in everything I eat, etc.. You name it, I read it!

However, if assembling something I will attempt to do so first without even bothering to read the directions. I save those for later to see how I did, or for when I mess it all up!  ::) ;D

One more - I put potato chips on my sandwiches, I love that crunch it provides.

And when I hit the door, socks and shoes have to come off, my daughter is the same way.

I have to eat side dishes before I eat the main dish.  I like to save the main dish for last!

I need to rub my feed together while I'm in bed at night to go to sleep.

I have heart palpatations (nothing serious)

i shave mine every two days.  i didn't have gorilla arms to begin with...but i tried it out once and it just kinda stuck.  i love it.

when i was a kid, i had to eat my french fries in sets of two and they both had to be the same length.  and when i would eat chips (crisps) i would eat all the broken ones on my plate first, from smallest to largest....then i would eat all of the ones that were the "normal" shape.

I cannot stand to see a bug in my house, I will Lysol the hell out of the spot I find/kill it.

I hate to fold laundry, it will sit there for days before I finally fold it which by then is wrinkled as hell.

I have to take a shower in the morning and a bath at night before bed.

When I get a paper out of one of the machines, I pull the middle one out, I can't get the one on top.

I change my undies and socks about three times a day, don't know why (maybe that was sharing too much)!  :-[ ;D

I do that with everything!  When I shop for clothes, food, books, etc... I always pick the one behind.  Maybe I think the front one is contaminated by other people? Who knows! 

Btw...I never knew I had so many quirks until I started reading everyone's posts.  I'm a complete weirdo!  :-\\\\
