Why are YOU eccentric?

A place for myself to post the comics storyline in prose form, plus a current comic discussion and most likely some random threads.

I can't really stand wearing socks to bed, even if my feet are cold.

I'll never wear pajama bottom shorts. if I'm wearing pajama bottoms (which I do most of the time), they have to be pants.

Whenever I read a Dan Brown novel, I recite how people die in various ways.

So do you eat pears in pairs? God that was cheesy...had to type it, though. Just had to.

yeah, usually. and apples.

also, when I get a bunch of grapes, I always pull them off in pairs and eat the odd one out, basically pretending like it never was there. and I also bite it in half and go "okay, that's two." hahahah..

When I eat grapes, I peel the skin off of every other one.

Ooh sweet! I'm not the only one that peels skin off grapes! (I don't have a specific pattern, though...just whatever ones I want)

I think I was supposed to be left-handed, but because I wouldn't choose my left or right hand when learning to write (I used to write to the center with my left, then switch to my right and finish writing across), my mom more or less chose for me. as a result, I'm a little bit ambidextrous.

I'm left-handed. The only other person in my family that is is one of my aunts.

Aww! :shucks: I sure hope that's no sarcasm there, lady!

Well, yes, I did figure it out. Plus, I could look it up.
It's just that I wouldn't have a clue how to pronounce it!
Why do you have such a hard word for it, though?
Why don't you just call it "both-handed"?
It's basically how we call it in Germany.

Anyway, no need to apologize, I got it, after all.

EDIT: I just did some research and found out there is the term "two-handed," which is odd, because technically most people are two-handed (ie having two hands)!

My favorite muscials are Rocky Horror and Godspell. I don't get it.

nope, no sarcasm on my part. :) and um... I dunno how to convey the pronunciation of the word to you over the internet. but I think if you look "ambidextrous" up on Wikipedia, it has a sound clip of how to say it.

anyway... time for my quirk: when I listen to American Doll Posse, I HAVE to finish the album in its entirety. no skipping songs, nothing. this is eccentric for me, because usually by now, I've picked favorite songs out of the whole album with other people and skip all the rest.

though that doesn't mean I don't listen to an ADP song when it comes up on my Winamp (which is perpetually on shuffle).

Basically it's just one of those that sounds just about like it's spelled.

Well, for one, you live in Germany yet you're on an English-speaking messageboard...which makes me assume you're bilingual. And anyone who can speak more than one language has got to have something up there! :)
