    I have to organize the laundry when I hang it on the line - socks together, my undies, Dh's undies, t shirts, pillowcases, etc. Like goes with like. Or else....

    Plus I go nuts if two forks are stuck together by the tines - like nails on a blackboard.

    Most of my quirks are food related (I think)

    I don't eat wet bread---dressing, bread pudding, soggy Italian beef, etc.
    Pumpkin and custard pies are also a big NO because I don't like the feel of them on my tongue
    I like cheese but not on sandwiches except for burgers

    I used to have a lot of quirks about my house, everything had to be neat and in it's place.
    My home was my sanctuary and I didn't like to have it invaded by anyone. After people would come and visit it always felt strange, like it wasn't "just mine" anymore. That might have come from growing up in a very small house with 7 other people.

    Oh, I have a phobia about birds, heights and tight spaces.
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.

    LOL, mine are alphabetized too. But I'll bet that like me, you can make out a grocery list with one quick glance.

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!

    That reminds me, I also alphabetize my spices. Makes them so much easier to locate.

    I have to squeeze every little bit out of the toothpaste tube. I even roll something round on the tube to get it all. Same with any thing that comes in a tube. That sucker better be empty.

    This is a fun topic!!
    I'm quirky about the way I drink Coke...I absolutely have to have it poured slowly down the side of the glass, which has to come out of the freezer not the cupboard, and have one very large piece of ice in it. I make my ice in the smallest (1/2 cup?) Glad plastic disposable cups.

    I only use Yardley Lavendar soap in my bathroom.

    I have to sleep with 5 pillows, one against my tummy, one against my back, one under/between my knees and another to support my upper arm when on my side. Oh, and my head, of course. (Reckon I'll never remarry unless we have separate bedrooms! No room in my bed, LOL!)

    I can't stand the feeling of 'prickly' upholstery fabrics, only cotton/denim for me! Or I have to cover my seat and chair arms with dish towels.

    Don't anybody touch my pillowcase or face towels, nobody!

    Geez, there is certainly a bit of neuroticism among us!
