What is your "ONE THING"...
Everyone has at least one, weird, mildly embarassing fact about themselves that they do not usually share with others. It could be that they hide it because it is an obsessive-compulsive impulse. Or it could be that they hide it because it's kind of disgusting.

What is yours? Please share!

Mine is that I check out people in the movie theatre to make sure they aren't "bombers".

If someone is sitting by themselves, or if they come in after the lights go down, I check out everything they have with them, and look them over to make sure they are "okay". If they get up at any time during the movie, I look to see if they are taking their stuff with them, or if they are leaving a bag or purse behind.

I know it's weird. My dh just found out about this a few weeks ago and he laughed so hard that people were turning around and asking him to be QUIET.

Anyone else have any dark secrets locked in their brain?

When I was little and I would spin in circles I would have to count how many times I'd spun, so I could unspin in the opposite direction.

Ok this is going to sound kind of weird but when I was younger and I'd go by houses at Christmas time I'd give them a kind of rating with a smile. If their lights were good they'd get a big simile, if they were ok, then they'd get kind of a grin, and if there were no lights I'd frown at them. But in doing my ratings I'd also take into account if I thought they might be Jewish or something and didn't celebrate Christmas so if I thought they might not celebrate the holiday they just wouldn't get a rating. I know this sounds crazy, and I just recently admitted to my mom that I used to do this, in fact I did it probably till I was about 14 or 15 and sometimes I still like to do it when I see a house decorated really nicely. I know I sound crazy. I think I have a few other "things" I'll have to think about and tell.

I like to take eggs out of the carton so that the eggs stay symmetrical. Using odd numbers of eggs was a problem before I started buying 18 eggs at a time. Since there are 3 rows in the carton I can still make a cool pattern even if I use an odd number .

I'm an obsessive skin picker, have been since I was around 15. I've accepted it now. It's also a stress reliever for me.

When I was a kid I had a group of imaginary friends (not weird yet..) but I ONLY talked to them when I sitting on the toilet.


I guess it was before I learned how to read a magazine.

Who needs magazines when you have video games?
