What things are you anal about?

Are you a neat freak? A creature of habit? What sorts of things do you need to have "just right" lest they drive you insane?

By books, CDs, and DVDs have to be *just* so. Everything else can go to hell...and often does.

heehee... my closet is mostly organized also. nearly all of my clothes face the same direction and work clothes are to the left and everything else is to the right. shoes are neatly lined up at the bottom and boxes which contain "things remembered" are neatly stacked above. however, THIS is probably the cleanest space in my apartment. everything else seems to have gone to hell. ...i'm working on that. i am anal about the weirdest things though--like making sure the canisters in my mother's house are neatly arranged. i don't know WHERE that one came from. heehee...

Okay, okay, I'm a freak of nature...the kitchen. I know, I'm the only guy I know who cares about this room but...

...I have been grossed out so many times by so many past and current roommates about so many dishes, etc. that have been left in the sink, on the counter, around the house. Initially I cleaned up after them, then found my pride and stood on principle. The green and brown things that crept out of those dirty dishes made me rage, and I promised myself to never let that nastiness happen to me. I've held fast to that promise.
