I thought it was about time i confess this….
I am slightly OCD. There I said it, that is the first step ya know!
Here’s why i believe i have some form or another of OCD
My clothes are in rainbow order, and sometimes even by the shade of color, sad i know!
I alphabetized my books one night when i couldn’t go to sleep (did i mention i was 10?)
They’re not alphabetized anymore, now they are by genre, publisher, then author, and size/series number.
My cd’s are alphabetized by last name and then by year. My christmas cds are on a different shelf and then my compilation dics are in their own box.
And i have arranged our dvd’s to be by cartoon (alphabetized), live action (alphabetized), and Jane Austen (in order of books published)
I even go into stores and rearrange their shelves to be in order (why??). My sister then follows and puts just 1 book out of place which must, of course, be put back to where it should be 🙂
At half price books in the clearance section (which is never orderly) I make sure that like authors are together and the same books are next to each other.
Oh yes, then there’s the fact i Cannot, Cannot, stop reading a book on an odd chapter, no stopping on chapter 19 or 3 for me, no sir! But for some strange reason multiples of five are acceptable. So I must either read the book by the two or by five chapters. And under no circumstances am I to stop on Chapter 13, that would mean disaster for the entire known world!
That’s pretty much the extent of my OCD-ness 🙂
