My OCD dilemma continues.

Today, whilst in a state of work, I noticed myself involved in another behavior that could possibly be cause for alarm in this ongoing saga of potential obsessive-compulsive disorder. So, once again, I call on your expertise. Previously, we explored my incessant need to ensure my sales price at the gas pump was rounded to the nearest tenth. We dicussed how this must be accomplished at no expense. Even in the face of potentially dangerous gas overflow? Sure, if that's what it takes to make it to the 0.

But this particular behavior is a little different. It seems to be a concoction of oddness.

Figure A1


As you can see, when I consume candies of candy-coatedness such as M&Ms and Skittles, they must be arranged on my desk in perfectly aligned columns, separated by colors, arranged in the color scheme, with all markings facing up. I then must eat them one color/column at a time, in order to maintain a level of high similarities between columns.

Cause for alarm?

Sadly, I am. I just had to scoot out of the way to take the picture. Someone help me.

I'd still line it up in neat little rows.

Haha, have you seen the South Park where they diagnose everyone with ADD? Made me think of that.

I see you have one of those sexy 20" widescreen monitors. I got one 2 months back...awesome.

I must also arrange by color in a symmetrical pattern. Consumption results in a reorganization of the pattern in order to maintain symmetry.


You're totally normal!

I like that rationale. That's what I'm going with. Clean it up, people!
