And I thought I Was Crazy! Quirks, Idiosyncrasies & Meshugaas ~~ A book review & giveaway! **Ended**

Quick Links to Info on This Page

Do you ever do anything that is kind of strange, even for your own standards?  Something that if your friends and family, or even the neighbors saw they would be like, “what in the world is she doing?”  Well don’t worry, you are not alone!

In the book, And I thought I was Crazy!  Quirks, Idiosyncrasies & Meshugaas, by Judy Reiser, you can read about all the weird quirks, habits, and craziness that people around the country exhibit every day, and you might even find that your little weirdness is not so strange after all!


I received a digital copy of this book from Judy to complete this review, and after reading the first few pages I knew I was going to be hooked.  I really enjoyed reading about other people’s issues instead of thinking about my own (who doesn’t right!).  I think once you pick this book up you will find it difficult to quit reading except to wipe the tears from your eyes from laughing so hard. One of my favorite stories from this book is about a woman who has to change her underwear three times every day.  She just has to do it!  Another is about a guy who MUST hold his breath the entire time he is riding on an elevator.  How do you even do that if you have a long ride!?

Here are a few excerpts just to show you how hilarious this book is:

When I go to the bathroom I always count (1, 2, 3…) and try to end my peeing on an even number. I have absolutely no idea why I enumerate while I urinate.  SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER, FEMALE, 52

Sometimes, I grocery shop by a letter of the alphabet and buy only items starting with that letter. I love a good C-shopping day: carrots, cauliflower, cat food, corn, coffee, chocolate chips, chops, chorizo. Occasionally I invite the kids across the street over for a P party: pizza, pineapple, pretzels, popsicles and punch. WRITER, FEMALE, 57

Before reading The New York Times every morning, I iron the outside of each section to sterilize it and protect myself from germs. ARTIST/SCULPTOR, FEMALE, 93

My socks have to be smiling when I put them in the drawer. When you roll up socks and flip one opening over the other, the little shape that’s formed at the end of the ball looks like a smile. It’s cheerful to open my drawer and see all the socks smiling! INSTITUTIONAL TEXTILE SALES, MALE, 46


This book would make a wonderful stocking stuffer, or really a perfect gift for any occasion.  If you have a someone on your list who loves a good laugh I definitely recommend this.

    I can't think of any odd things that I do. I have to fold my towels a certain way and I hang my toilet paper so it rolls out and not under. I sometimes change it when I go places and it is hung Other then that I can not think of anything real odd that I do. (but then maybe it is only normal to me?) Reply

    I have to eat candybars and poptarts a certain way. Once I had a poptart and my fiance wanted a bite. Clearly I didn't want to give him a bite, he'd throw off my method. I eventually told him it was love because I let him bite my poptart. Reply

    I like patterns of numbers like 3,6,9 or 1122. I look for them in phone numbers, addresses, anywhere there are a series of numbers. Even numbers make better patterns I think. Reply

    I move my living room furniture about every 2 months. Every time my family/friends come over, it's different. Reply

    I need some good laughs. Sometimes I try to count my steps when I take walks. I always get confused and have to start again. Happens often when you walk a mile and a half or two miles. Besides who cares how many steps...and wear a pedometer. lkish77123 at gmail dot com Reply

      When I was a kid I would always try to avoid stepping on any cracks.... I've tried to stop doing that as i get older as I realize it is just silly, but sometimes I still find myself taking bigger or smaller steps to avoid them. :-) Reply
