i am neurotic (and so are you)- Liana Kong

Oh this one was a hoot!

Lianna Kong started her blog "to create an entertaining procrastination tool...and provide a space where my friends and I could anonymously confess our neuroses." Soon people she didn't know were sending in their quirks. And a year later, they've been compiled into this book - i am neurotic. Everything included in the book was sent into the blog. Each neuroses is accompanied by a colour photo illustration by Matthew Stacey.

Well, like what Luanne?

Aligning the strings of people's hoodies.
Throwing out your pen if someone else touches it.
Alphabetizing your canned goods.
Tacks must be in rainbow order. Crayons in heatscale order.
Aligning the hangers in a department store.
Alternately - having something out of place, so it's not 'perfect'.
Eggs must always be in pairs in the carton.

Oh there's a lot more. But I saw myself when I read this one - "Whenever I buy a new book, I have to bury my nose in between a few random pages and take in a deep breath."

Just a fun book to leaf through. Anyone who likes Postsecret will appreciate i am neurotic.

You can follow at Twitter or on Facebook and of course, contribute your neurosis on the blog.

Anyone care to share?

This sounds really interesting. I guess we all have our little quirks.

Books that started off as blogs seems to be a big thing lately, don't they? I love Postsecret :)

I have to read this!

My personal quirk? Fixing people's popped collars on the DC Metro. I've only done it twice but every time I see one I want to fold it down.

What do they do when you do it Connie?
