    It's nice to have some affirmation on the straw thing. I've gotten many wierd looks from waitresses when I ask for a straw with one of those tiny little glasses of juice!

    P.S. While I am a packrat, my spaces tend to be "scattered," not dirty. Don't want you all to think I'm a slob! I even try to organize sometimes. Sometimes it works for a while. Other times, I get really upset because I knew where to find something when it was strewn about, but now that it's "put away," I can't remember where I put it! There is a method to my madness.

    Me, too! I know what pile to look in for something, but if I put it away somewhere, I can't find it and have to tear the place to shreds to find it

    That is a fabulous name!

    AliceBShoe, I am obsessing over your name! Every time I see it I think to myself, "What a great name." and then I have to say it out loud.

    Secondly, the whole pack rat/cleanliness thing is so much a part of OCD.

    When I post here or write a recap, I am in a huge hurry to get it done. Then I have to go in repeatedly to correct and change things that will bother me.

    I have turned off my computer at night, lain in bed and thought of something I must alter and then come back into my office, fire up the 'puter and try to adjust my post. This doesn't always work because too much time has elapsed.

    I have developed the following fetish in the last few years: I don't like anyone wearing shoes inside my house. I ask them politely to remove their shoes at the door. I just think that shoes that have stepped in dog poop and worse have no place inside my house.

    Does anyone else share this one with me?

    P.S. I have already been back for one edit.

    Im definately with ya on the shoes thing!! TP has to go overtop and at the moment I cant really think of anything else. I did however have a very bad habit back in the day of having this routine that I did before watching this certain NFL team play. I wont name the team as they have to be the MOST hated PS...dunno if this is OCD but I have to have atleast one sentence containing ........ in my Posts. LoL

    CaliGirl, I must admit that I stole "AliceBShoe" from a shoe illustration Andy Warhol did earlier in his career. It used to be my avatar. I'll have to dig it up again. As a high school student, I was somewhat obsessed with Andy. Weird.

    And another thing, I am now obsessing over the fact that I misspelled "weird" in an earlier post. It's driving me crazy, and it's too late to edit! I usually proofread carefully.

    Thank you so much for the clarification. I knew it sounded somewhat familiar.

    I was obsessed with Lily Taylor's performance in "I Shot Andy Warhol." Then I became obsessed with Lily Taylor's disappearance in "Six Feet Under" and later on I became obsessed with Lily Taylor.

    Now I am obsessing about a reply in a different thread. I think I got yelled at and put in my place and it is driving me insane. I will be living with it for half the day. That is the biggest OCD issue that I have. I just live with junk for a day or so until I either vent it on someone.

    Scrumpot, I'm like that too. I can't forgive myself very easily.

    Remember though, don't take too seriously what people say over the internet. I knew what you were getting at in the "other" thread.

    Caligirl, about the shoe thing.

    We always take off our shoes when we're at home. I think it's an Asian culture. I get your disgust for wearing shoes in the house.
