That's Not Odd, Is It?

Since I was put on to The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl a few months back, I've found myself celebrating awkward situations by laughing at J.  I find many of the episodes so intriguing because I can relate to them on so many levels.  In fact, I think J's peculiarities are universal.  In the spirit of J, I decided to make a list of a few off-center things I do to share in on those awkward moments we all experience.  I'll let you be the judge on how odd they all may be.
  1. After speaking to my neighbors when I leave out in the mornings, I find myself avoiding them for the rest of the day.  Am I supposed to speak again when I see them or put on another fake smile?
  2. I hate when people are talking around me when I'm typing.  I often find myself typing the words they're saying.
  3. I sometimes text people randomly to avoid conversations and eye contact from strangers.  I might have stranger phobia :(
  4. When I see misspelled words in text messages, I look at my keypad to see if the position of the correct letter is near the one misused.
  5. I separate my food by eating in sectioned plates (or will get two plates) so that my food doesn't touch.  
  6. I people watch. like. all. the. time.  I watch their mannerisms, hand gestures, and the way they communicate with others.  If we are engaged in conversation, I am probably studying your body language more so than what you are saying.  The eyes never lie, right?
None of these things are odd, are they?  What are some of the odd things you do?  Please share in the comments.
