OK, I basically love this books because it tells me "You are not alone with your strange ticks. There are more people who have a set order in which they eat their food and think that DVDs should be sorted properly (well, I don't sort thzem alphabetically but after genre and then chronologically...but something tells me that this does not make it better) and there are more people who worry about the future A LOT." In parts it got a bit tedious even for me (it did have a whole chapter on eating breakfast) but then that also is somehow the point of the book.

Quotes Aoife Liked

Jon Richardson
“My weirdness aside, if I am to find any friends, particularly a girlfriend, she will almost certainly have to be a human. My previous track record tends to suggest that of all species that exist on the planet, it has so far been exclusively humans to whom I find myself sexually attracted. This is a good thing legally if nothing else.”
Jon Richardson, It's Not Me, It's You

“I don't mean to hate people, I just get forced into it.”
Jon Richardson, It's Not Me, It's You

Jon Richardson
“I am in no doubt that if you use the term 'luv' in a letter or text message then you are incapable of truly understanding the emotion. Artists have not pored over heartache and unrequited sentimentality for years so that our generation could decide that four letters is simply one too many to express how we feel.”
Jon Richardson, It's Not Me, It's You

Here shops are closed ALL Sunday. Stop whining"

Annie Nope you are not alone, sweety. I sort my DVDs and books and stuff as well. I even have seperate lists for them. *whistles*

Aoife Ab einer gewissen Anzahl von DVDs/Büchern machts einfach Sinn wenn man sie wiederfinden will XD Ich verstehe nich wie manche Leute die einfach bunt durcheinanderwürfeln *g*

message 3: by Annie (new) - added it

Annie Ich bin froh, dass wir da einer Meinung sind. :) Ich kann auch nicht verstehen, wie die da überhaupt noch irgendwas finden. *kopf schüttelt* Es leben die Listen! XD

Jools You're not alone. ;) Ich sortiere zwar auch nicht nach Alphabet, aber nach bei Büchern nach Autoren und bei DVDs nach Regisseuren bzw. Schauspielern. ;)
Listen sind was wunderbares. Und das Buch kommt ganz oben auf meine Wish-List. :)

Aoife Bei Büchern sortiere ich nach Genre und dann nach Autor (oder bei historischen Romanen nach Zeit in der sie spielen XD).

Lies es, es ist wirklich toll. Wie gesagt ganz toll für Leute wie uns, die eine gewisse Ordnung schätzen *g*

message 6: by Annie (new) - added it

Annie Dann muss ich das Buch wohl auch mal lesen. ^^
Ich sortier meine Bücher auch immer nach Genre und dann nach Autor und bekomm dann immer zu hören, ob ich nicht vielleicht auch auf Bibliothekar umschulen will. *drop* Na wenigstens bin ich nicht allein. ^^
