And about a year ago, *I* was assuming Nik was a feminine name. But I never told. <snip>

I have a definite obsession with even numbers, and pairs. If I step on a crack with my left foot, I have to step on another with my right foot, in exactly the same way. Everything has to be even, in a symmetrical sort of way. Like if I scratch my right arm, I scratch my left arm too in the same place -- this isn't as bad now as it used to be, but it still happens. But I have lots of other OCD-ish symptoms too, so it's not very surprising. Nicole -- AIM sn: iiiieeeee
