It fascinates me how people have their own different quirky habits, but at the same time we can all be so similar in our weirdness. We are unique, but we also have so much in common. A couple of years back, I tried to capture this in a video on eating habits. For example, so many people eat Oreo cookies in the same way (breaking it open, eating the white stuff out, eating the other half). Or many people eat M&M’s and skittles based on color. Here is a video with a collection of such small eating habits:
And here are a couple of drawings of the visualization of parts of my thinking process that got me to my final video.


Do you have any weird (eating) habits? Do you recognize any?

    I found you through Skunkboy Creatures by looking at her followers. Sometimes I go through to find blogs I would be interested in reading! xoxo

    I can relate to quite a lot of the habits in your video! One of mine that isn’t in the video is plaiting strawberry laces before I eat them – this doesn’t always end well for me though as my boyfriend doesn’t plait his so if we’re sharing a packet he will have eaten the whole packet before I’ve even finished my first plait!

    Gold star for the old No Doubt soundtrack!

    I have two friends who always fold toast in half before they eat it. Always.

    Love the video! I am certainly guilty of eating some of those things the same way.
    As for my own quirks? Hmm… Well, I eat Oreos like a regular cookie. When I have waffles, I put syrup in every little square one by one and then cut them along the lines to eat. When I used to eat lucky charms I would save some marshmallows for the last few bites to be just marshmallows. I don’t eat the tops of asparagus. When I have chicken stars (nuggets in the shape of stars) from a fast food place here called Carl’s Jr. I eat the points of the star first, leaving the “circle” for last. Ummm I think that might be it! Though I’m sure there are more that I just haven’t remembered because I haven’t eaten those things in awhile.
    Awesome study you’ve done; this is fun!

    Of course, I have some weird eating habits. We all have them. Don’t we? :?
    I can’t remember them (all) right now. Let’s see… I always wash boiled egg after peeling/before eating it. Is this an eating habit at all? :/

    I love the video!!

    lol.. i love reading about others quirks. great video. I eat an oreo the regular way..don’t separate anything by color.. I’m not a big fan of my food touching each other. People go into buffets and pile their plates high.. I always bring back small portions so that the food doesn’t intermingle.

    I always fold wrappers up neatly after unwrapping, say, a Klondike bar, instead of wadding them and tossing them. Oh, and I eat the very same things every single day (I know, that’s bad.) I’ll switch it out every few years or so. See, I forget to eat, so by doing this it helps keep a constant calorie intake. For a few years it was a certain cereal blend with milk, hot pockets for lunch, and chicken nuggets with tater tots for dinner. Now it’s cinnamon rolls… a tortilla with cheese meat and mushrooms.. and yes, that Knondike bar. Anything else bothers me.

      Really? Well I have to admit that I eat the same for breakfast and lunch almost every single day (oats with almond milk and fruit, toast, and I eat an apple nearly every day), but i find it hard to imagine for myself doing that for dinner as well. Aren’t you worried about getting enough healthy nutritions? Fruits, vegetables, vitamins, etc?
