So this is weird... - December 7th 2009, 01:08 AM

I have a string obsession?
I like pulling strings out of my jean seams.
Or random strings out of blankets.
Or just strings!
I pull them out.
The twirl them between my fingers.
And it's just weird..
Half the time I don't even know I am doing it!
I'm like a kitty?
I see string(yarn) and it's like OMG I MUST PLAY WITH THAT!

I have no idea how to stop!
I more so posted this to see if anyone else possibly does this?
Or i'm just unique and crazy? =P


I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without.

I do this sometimes too...not an obsession really, more like something to occupy my hands with. Like if I see a loose string I'll just start playing with it...or when I wear sweats with strings I'll sub-consciously tie them in knots n such.
I really don't see it as a problem...unless it's harmful in any way which it doesn't seem to be. But to answer your question...no, you're not crazy!

There is a world of difference
between refusal and failure.

Hahaha okay thanks!
Cause my friends would alway shit me and be like "LEAVE THE STRINGS ALONE!"
I have ruined the ends of some of my pants from it =P
But it's nice to know i'm not the only one! =)
