Yep, I'm weird too...

I think I may have some more weird habits but the problem is, they seem normal to me!

1. I talk to myself without realising that I'm talking out loud.

2. I eat the crusts from my sandwiches first.

3. I must have a coat or jacket with me no matter what the weather, I feel naked without one.

4. I bless myself discreetly when I hear sirens.

5. If I start a book I can't put it down. And once I've read it, I'll probably read it again

I grew up catholic, and my mother would always bless herself when she heard sirens. Sometimes I do it too - especially if I see that it was a bad wreck or something. Even though I'm not religiously I guess that is my way of sending good vibes.

Re: #1... I've noticed I replay past conversations in my head, and sometimes notice I react (expressions and all) loudly, to myself. I must look like a lunatic. I'll remember something a cute guy said, and I'll smile like a fool... to myself. For no apparent reason...

From my superstitious Catholic background, we say silly things like, "Oh, look a funeral, that's good luck for the rest of the day."

Mary - it's not something I've noticed other members of my family doing, but I must have picked it up from someone!
Jadzia - seriously though, I'll ask myself a question inside my head and then answer it aloud as though I was talking to someone else.
Goldennib - I haven't heard that one before!

Nics - It may be a Austrian/Salzberger Catholic thing. So mant things are lucky. A passing funeral prosession (I'm assuming because you're not the one dead) but there's pigs, chimney sweeps, gnomes, among other things. It's got to be a leftover from the Celtic heritage.
