What are you OCD about?

Okay, so everyone has their little quirks which makes them odd or special. What do you do that is your little "wierd thing". I personally have a problem with my fear of house fires so during electrial storms, I have to unplug everything, stay away from windows, and stay away from water (likes dishes and baths) until the storm is over. Also, when setting my alarm clock at night, out of fear of setting it wrong and not getting up on time, I check it, recheck it, recheck it, and check it again. And this is right after another. What is your little quirk? Please share!

One thing I am really obsessive about is something I picked up from my dad. I need to wash my hands many times in a day, and it feels like they are dirty really easily, even if there is nothing on them. But for me, it's not that they have to be truly clean, they just need to FEEL clean. I can't use antibacterial hand cleaner because there is no water and it leaves my hands feeling sticky. I need to have some kind of water to make my hands feel clean, sometimes it's been so bad I've even used an ice cube from my drink to rinse my hands off... Another weird thing is that I always want to put colored pencils or markers in order by color. Since I'm an art student I have a lot of boxes of these things lying around, and I always want them to be in order from red to violet!
