Re: list your peculiarities here

When I visit NC (about once every 20 years), I get to a diner and get eggs over easy, grits and crisp bacon. Chop/mic it all up and use my buttered toast as the spoon.

Yummy.

Big perculiarity (fetish maybe ) is young Chinese women from the city of Guangzhou.

Didn't you mean young Chinese women teenage girls?
Now, that would be a tad peculiar although not too uncommon for a 50ish OAP.

3.* I talk in my sleep--not all the time, but often enough.* I looked up somniloquism a long time ago on the Internet trying to cure myself but found nothing useful.* I didn't want to pay for psychotherapy.* It's not really bothersome now, although it used to embarrass me when I was younger and would stay at other people's houses overnight.* I think I am able to handle anxieties better these days because sometimes I laugh and sing in my sleep.*

I can make a longer list but some of them are too private and a lot are from growing up in a different country.

Re: list your peculiarities here

My DH affectionately calls me an anal-retentive clean freak. My list of peculiarities are endless but here a few:

In the bathroom: everything has a place and I mean everything except dirty clothes laying on the bathroom floor (drives me nuts). I like my towels folded in 3's. I like it placed on the bathroom counter on a diagonal. I like my bath towel hung up on the right and husband's on the left. My shampoo bottle in the middle and his on the right. I am very particular about my bath/body soap. Has to be bar, vegetable oil, and smell wonderful.

I am very particular about my sheets. The bedding must be changed no less than once a week. Must have high thread count but bought on sale. Cream colored. Light weight down blanket. Bedspread folded in 3's at the foot of the bed. No clothes laying on the floor, closet doors closed.

There is more but I don't want to sound scary....

LL

Be careful, Dear.

One more name, one more
name you call out in your sleep
One more name and I'll know
it's not a lie
One more name, one more name
that from your lips does creep
One more name and our love will surely die.

Re: list your peculiarities here

Wab,
I like #1 a lot. As a matter of fact, #1 is just my type.

This years Miss China Town beauty contest is next week. For some reason it is s\ponsored by the Mason's.

Another peculiarity is that the Masonic Lodge band marches in front of the Chinese funeral processions.

Never mind, they all look alike (blatantly racist joke, I know!).

I think #25 is my favorite. Apparently it's justin's, too.

I wouldn't say "no" to any of them, though.
