If the answer to both isn't yes, I do stuff before I go to bed.
Pain of discipline, or pain of regret. Eh Scud?

Re: what are your ocd tendencies?

I really don't like to put socks back on if I've taken them off.

I pretty much only set my volume in my car to even numbers or multiples of 5 (generally the latter).

A buddy of mine with kids told me that my cleanliness issues will die really fast once my wife and I have some little ones.

Oh yeah, I forgot the bed. First thing I do when I get up is make the bed. An unmade bed can make an otherwise clean bedroom look a total mess.
For me, I somehow got the 'efficiency' gene. Everything I do, I think about what's most efficient for me. So it goes: I could spend 10 minutes organizing my desk, would I get that 10 minutes back in time saved before my desk became disorganized again? If the answer is no, then I don't organize it. And usually the answer is no because I generally know where everything is.

Drives my wife nuts because our discussions usually go something like this:

Wife: Let's go to the pool and then on the way home let's pick up the tools we needed at Home Depot.

Me: It's better if we go to Home Depot first and then the pool, because the kids will be wet and tired after the pool and they won't feel like going into the store. Besides the baby will probably be asleep and we'll want to put her right down for a nap when we get home. And you know how we all hate walking around in wet bathing suits. And the kids will tolerate the Home Depot better because they'll be looking forward to the pool the whole time. As opposed to if they go to the pool first they'll have no interest in Home Depot. So let's go to Home Depot first.

Wife: Fine whatever, mister my way or the highway.

Ha no doubt SS. That phrase has been on a banner in the Gator locker room ever since Urban took over. I love it. And resemble it.

My wife eats things like M&Ms or carrots in pairs. She can't eat an even number.

Re: what are your ocd tendencies?

Almost forgot, my kids have to type my Birthday/Fathers day/ Christmas cards for me. Yep, they break out the old typewriter insert the card and type their message. I hate trying to read sloppy handwriting. Then they sign them with their signature ink stamps with their names on them in perfect cursive.

JK I just made that up.

Re: what are your ocd tendencies?

I pick my nose a lot.

No seriously, besides picking my nose a lot, I have to put shoe trees in my shoes almost immediately after taking them off. I hate to see them all crumpled up and sweaty in the corner somewhere. And they have to be neatly put away somewhere. Not necessarily with other shoes, but just together and out of the way. And I hate for the soles to be facing up or for one shoe to be laying on it's side. Weird, right?

When cooking breakfast I cook my bacon, eggs, and toast in the same order everytime. It's like a timer goes off in my head when to put the toast on.

Re: what are your ocd tendencies?

Oh, here's a weird one.

So when I was a kid I used to wear an extra pair of gym shorts under my pants to make me look fatter, because I was so skinny. So yeah, all these years later I still wear a pair of gym shorts under my pants or whatever I'm wearing. Every single day.

Not the same pair I used to wear as a kid of course.

Re: what are your ocd tendencies?

Sorry...trying to run up my post count today.

As far as watching football goes, I hate watching Redskins games with other people. Even if they are Redskins fans. Mofos just don't know when to shut up when the Skins are playing.

I think we may have a winner. Maybe you're subconsciously getting yourself ready every day in the event that you have to exercise or save a drowning person?

Remember the kid from Charlie Brown that carried the blanket everywhere?

It's so funny because I could be wearing a nice suit and people have no idea that I'm wearing a pair of stinking shorts underneath.

Seriously. And they always say stupid crap. It is always the regurgitated BS that is so very superficial. Or they spurt out some ridiculous notion that makes me want to smack them. I think my dad once said something like "I'm not a big Cooley fan. He's pervert. And he always fumbles." I was in shock at the ignorance. Or when someone used to complain about Samuels. They probably never realized how close to death they came. In my mind I was chocking them with game tape of the 27 other LTs in the game that weren't as good. I never trie to inform them because I knew what a jackass I'd look like...even though I was right.

Re: what are your ocd tendencies?

I finally broke my habit of closing my bedroom door at night. I could never go to sleep with the door open.

Mainly, I'm with JoeRedskin and Schneed, I don't usually sweat anything that happens out of order, nor keep my possessions in any extraordinarily meticulous condition. I'm a firm believer in energy efficiency. If it takes more effort to change it for no discernible advantageous effect than I don't do it.
