Ok fine, I'll post my quirks like everyone else. Although I remember doing this another time...

1) I also hate someone else's breath in my face. Right now my husband and I are asleeping in a double bed. Not a queen. Not a king. A double. I hate having someone else's breath in my face so bad, that when I go to bed, I sleep facing out. When I want to turn over, I get up, go around to the other side of the bed, and make him move to the other side, so I can lay down and face out again. Luckily, he feels the same way, and usually when I get up and go around, I just have to lay my hand on his shoulder, and he immediately says, "Ready to switch sides?" I might do this 2 or 3 times a night. I don't do this if I'm sleeping in a kingbed. Is this TMI?
2) I am a creature of habit. I like to eat oatmeal every morning and drink a glass of OJ. Every morning. While I'm eating it, I read my scriptures. While I eat lunch every day, I read whatever book I'm reading. I get annoyed if someone calls me during lunch, because that is usually the only time I really read my book. I might sit there an hour to read. Everything else about my day is very habitual. I always brush my teeth for 8 minutes. I always floss. I always swish with Listerine. I always put A&D ointment on my feet after I get out of the shower and then put thick socks on, until I'm ready to get dressed. Maybe this is TMI too?
3) I hardly ever call someone and ask them out to lunch. I always think they will say no, or that they are too busy. Luckily maybe my friends know this, so they call me a lot. I even think about calling someone to go to lunch and then talk myself out of it. I do call my daughters (when I'm in the US) but even then I probably don't call them as much as I would like to.
4) When I am shopping for something, whether it is a gift, or just something I want, I want EXACTLY what I was thinking of. I don't like to "settle" for something different or inferior. I want what I want and I want it now. :0) And I also hate it when someone asks me what I want for my birthday or Christmas, and I tell them, and then they can't find it so they "settle" for something "like" it. Because I usually "don't" like it.
5) I am not a fake person. I am what I am. Take it or leave it. I do not act much different in public than I do in private. Sometimes to my detriment.
6) I like sandwiches without condiments (mayo, mustard, etc), just plain bread. I have to have a coke slurpee instead of a coke when we go to the movies (you don't have to pee during the movie if you have a slurpee - does it take a while for the cold slushy ice to turn to pee?. I like brown sugar and wheat germ on my oatmeal. I can't eat syrup on my pancakes because if I do, I can't swallow them. My throat sort of closes up - I have to have jam. I am addicted to cantaloupe and eat it practically every day in the summer. (I wonder if Ireland has cantaloupe?) I really don't care whether my peanut butter is crunchy or smooth. I hate whole milk. To this day, I cannot make brown gravy. I can make white, cream gravy, not any form of brown.

I think that was more than 6 :P.

I'm just curious. Why do you brush your teeth for 8 minutes? I never heard the dentist say anything about 8 minutes. Did someone tell you that, or is that a sort of OCD round number you like? ;) Just curious. lol

I like white gravy better than brown gravy anyway.... :)

My periodontist wanted me to brush them for 10 minutes, but I settled for 8. And I lumped all the food stuff into #6.

:) This was cute to read, I'm the same way about wanting a specific thing and get mad when I can't find it.
