Do You Have Any Weird OCD's?

So we all know what OCD is right? Well if not then here's the definition:

"Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead you to do repetitive behaviors (compulsions). With obsessive-compulsive disorder, you may realize that your obsessions aren't reasonable, and you may try to ignore them or stop them. But that only increases your distress and anxiety. Ultimately, you feel driven to perform compulsive acts in an effort to ease your stressful feelings." - MayoClinic 

Okay so now that we understand OCD, I was wondering if any of you readers out there suffer from OCD? I know I surely do. I'd like to share some of my OCD's with you and see if we have similarities with ours. 

So here are a few of my OCD's:

1.While washing of dishes I frequently take a towel and dry my hands after every 5 utensils or dish. 
2.When cooking I must have the right pot top on a pot i'm using. 
3.My measurements have to be precise when cooking. 
4.I have to full screen every video I watch online and make sure
the menu bar or curser isn't showing. 
5.I need album art on all of my music on iTunes; sometimes songs/albums don't have it's cover so I go crazy over that. 
6.If interrupted by someone while i'm listening to a song, I won't press pause; after the conversation I will replay the song.
7. When putting on deodorant I count my applies to 7 under each arm; sometimes I go to 11. 

There are a lot more, but these are the ones I'm most anal about!
Share some of your OCD's with me!
