i compulsively grab paper clips from my desk and twist them into little forms before sitting them down or throwing them away. i find them everywhere around my office and it embarasses me. i seem to have no control ove it. btw, the forms have no artistic merit whatsoever.

in the summer i compulsively tear leaves off of bushes that are near the sidewalk and then rip them to shreds.

i bet other people do this.

thats about it. the watch mostly.

i'll wear a watch until it breaks without taking it off. then when it stops working i get a new one. if i say i'll call someone at 9:00. and it's 8:59 and some seconds.. i'll stand there and not start dialing until 9:00 on the dot. im obsessed with time.

i love wearing things and never taking them off. I wish i didn't have to take my watch off when i took a shower.

I do this, too! What's worse is that one of the psuedo experiments from last semester was the effects of social facilitation on motor task performance and we used colored paper clips to see how fast the participants could link them together. I don't use them that much so they are literally ALL OVER the place since I had to buy a couple hundred of them.

I also compulsively:

apply chapstick
bite my bottom lip
twirl at loose strands of hair
look at my watch
crack my knuckles, shoulders, back
adjust my glasses
play with my earrings

i compulsively throw knives into the floor while wearing my socks such that a good five inches of extra material extends from the tips of my toes. if i am lucky enough to hit the sock and pin it to the floor, i wait it out in that exact spot until morning, and then i go on with my life.

i compulsively mess around with my hair, too. i tuck it behind my ear, which is bad news because it makes that chunk straight whereas the rest of my hair is wavy/curly.


and i compulsively smoke nugs if i have any in house. lately i have tried (rather successfully) to keep it out of my house so i don't have to smoke it daily. i'm a slave to it when i have it.

also i compulsively say: man, dude, anyway, and um

bite my nails. bite the inside of my mouth. twirl my hair. twiddle my beard. engage in all manner of picking at myself. tap the empty spaces on the touch-screen register at my work. check netphoria. check penny arcade. flip through channels on tv. browse through the digital channel guide while i watch tv. check the clock. check my alarm. check my car doors. check the front door. check any place large enough to hide a person.

oh and i have a pretty brutal headcold on the go right now, so i'm constantly dry-swallowing to make sure my throat still hurts.

I act like a stoner all the time even though I'm not. I'm always squinting and I walk funny and I talk in strange patterns. I can't help it. It really makes me unhappy.
