    Your foibles, curious habits and general strange things you do...

    I never, ever buy milk in see-through plastic cartons and won't use milk from one.

    I'm sure I've loads more as I'm sure we all do but it's sunday morning and my brain is fried.

    I hate sitting with my back to a door, it freaks me out no end. Sometimes it's unavoidable and i spend the duration looking behind me.

    I'm constantly checking the time. I can't sleep if the curtains are closed. I wash my hands after I brush my teeth.

    All I can think of for now.

    Yeh I hate milk in plastic cartons too. Tastes horrible. Refuse to buy it which causes arguments on holidays with mates who want to get a huge cheap carton of the stuff. I also cant eat bisuits, cakes or chocolate without milk to dip them in. I'm addicted to milk is the key

    It's caused by Vitamin D. If the milk is exposed to daylight -which it is on any shelf in a supermarket or shop it starts to turn. Refrigeration is pointless if it's not kept in the dark.

    I also check milk cartons for suspicious "plumpness". If they're too firm then the chemical reactions have started.

    Ah it all makes sense now. I always thought it the plastic that made it taste different. So that's probably why coke from a bottle and a can tastes different. Damn, I hate when I miss obvious stuff like that. Makes me feel stoopid

    I won't drink Guinness from a plastic cup. Also, I hate being late.(And no,I'm not female!)
    Did you ever notice that in every painting of Adam & Eve, they have belly buttons. Think about that...take as long as you want.

    It's also a reason why many drinks are sold in green or otherwise tinted bottles.

    Plastic containers shouldn't affect taste but metal ones most definitely do with some drinks.

    I'd notice no difference in taste whatsoever in some lagers whether they came from a bottle or tin ...Budweiser, Miller, Heineken.

    But with ales ...particularly Newcastle Brown but also Bass, Smithwicks, McArdles etc... there is simply no comparison between the two with the bottled being vastly superior to the tinned.

    Yeah agree about the plastic milk cartons, hate lateness too, I'm always on time when meeting mates in the pub etc. although this usually means I sit waiting on my own on the hu*es for ages.

    sitting at a messy table/desk.

    i simply have to tidy it up, be it monday morning in work or saturday night in a indian fast food place.

    i think it might be OCD or something.

    also, despite being a preacher of reason and logic, and generally despising superstitions, i cant help but blame particular scarves for poor runs of form.

    I hear than GavinZac, I pour scorn on superstition and religion, yet can't help feeling ****ed off when seeing a single magpie on the way to a match, and sometimes find myself choosing what gear to wear based on the results the last time they got an outing. It annoys me that I do this- yet I continue.

    I can't help but check that doors are locked. When heading out, even though I know I locked the back door, I still have to go back and check it again. Same with doors of my car.

    A guy from Sligo* has OCD and has to check the locks repeatedly,
    among other things. He also sleeps with Helen Hunt.

    *Might be wrong about that bit.

    I'm willing to accept OCD for that perk
