|05:05 pm - Five of My Weird Habits|
Ground rules: The first player of this "game" starts with the topic "Five of My Weird Habits" and the people who get tagged need to then write a LJ entry about their five quirky little habits as well as state the rules of this game clearly.
In the end, you need to list the next
five people who you want to tag.
I don't know what other people have said.
NEW RULES: You can't repeat anything that someone else has already said. ITS QUIRKY not COMMON.
1. I always sleep on the side of the bed furthest from the door. I feel like it gives me more time in case I'm being attacked, but intellectually, it's stupid because if I were being attacked, I'm farther away from the door and therefore it would be harder for me to get away. But that's what makes it quirky, right?
2. I don't know if this is quirky habit, but I always brush my teeth before I shower. This started because in my old apartment, where the hot water heater sorta sucked and we lived on the third floor, I had to turn the water and let it run for awhile before I could get hot water. Since I didn't have anything else to do with the time, I would brush my teeth. Prior to that, I brushed my teeth after bathing/showering. I doubt it's truly quirky because we all have to brush sometime, but the reason why is quirky enough, isn't it?
3. I have a candy bowl for company. I get this habit from my grandmother. That doesn't make it common.
4. I always turn my head away when someone is typing their password. I wasn't even aware that I was doing it until a couple of people pointed out it. ("You don't have to turn away. I don't care if you know the password." "Huh? I don't do that." "Oh, yeah, you do. And every time." "Hrm." And they're right. I do. Really. Everytime. Only now, I notice after I do it, and laugh.)
5. This is just soppy. The last thing my husband and I say to each other when we go to bed is "Goodnight, Love." and we give each other a kiss. If we talk afterwards, we have to repeat it. If after the kiss, one of us says, "Goodnight, Love" again, we kiss each other again, so the kiss is the last thing. It started on a whim one night and we've been doing ever since. Crazy kids.

My Jive Five
1. Whenever possible, I flush public toilets with my feet. All that standing like a crane in Karate class pays off.
2. I pump the paper towel dispenser before I wash my hands. Then I wash my hands, then I use the first pump of paper towels to pump another section and then use that to shut off the spigots.
3. I use the second pump of paper towel to open the bathroom door. Depending on the restaurant, I either dispose of in a trash can in the restaurant (Like Panera's or Papa Gino's) or free throw it into the trash can from the door that I'm now holding with a non-hand section of my body.
4. Will ask Hubby or Guy buddies that use a public bathroom before me, if it is gross. Cause if a guy finds the men's bathroom gross, then I know that the ladies room will be more than I can handle.
5. In a typical month, will walk out of at least one public bathroom and say to myself "I can wait".
And yes, I have "issues" with public bathrooms.

Re: My Jive Five
I'm not following the rules set out by Emma, but perhaps that is one of my quirks.
I must admit that I share most of these public bathroom habits. #1
Yes, always. #2
I use my elbow to get the paper towel started, but often there is already a finger sized piece left from when the previous person ripped off their towel that I can use to start the paper towel. I use paper or sometimes my elbows to turn off the faucet when it isn't one that shuts itself off. If I accidentally touch the faucet spigot I have to wash my hands again.#3
Yes, always. But some bathrooms don't have any paper towels. In that case I use the bottom of my coat or some part of my clothes that doesn't get too near my body later. If I accidentally touch the door I have to go back and wash my hands again.#4
I don't usually have someone to ask. I'm usually the first one who has to use it.#5
I am usually in need so it is rare that I have the option to wait. But I can balance above the seat to avoid contact when needed.
