I do the meringue thing too. Also, if anyone asks if something's tickin, I have to say no, it's turkey.

Also the key/secret thing. I'm not proud.

Also, every time I see a meringue I ask, "Is that a cake or a meringue?"

It took a while, but the penny eventually dropped (to be quickly snaffled up by one of you lot).

Nope, I get all the others (and do a lot of them) but this one has me baffled.

Every so often if i am listening to the radio at work a certain track/song appears in my mind out of nowhere and then its played on the radio.This concerns tracks that are oldies that are not on the playlists regularly or hardly ever.Either that or i think i really want to hear a certain track that is hardly ever played on the radio and then its played on the radio.

I know someone that used to say "You know" at the end of every sentence which was annoying so i had to point out that it is somewhat unbecoming of an educated 52 yr old to have a grammatical inflection that you would normally associate with a teenager.

I don't know if this belongs here but,
I often quote Star Wars quite a lot and whenever the Millennium Falcon was mentioned I would follow it with A-Chimminy Skadooooo (from when C3P0 was storytelling to the Ewoks).
When the wife bought me the Millennium Falcon one Christmas (many moons ago) she actually asked for a Millennium Falcon A-Chimminy. The only reason I ever found this out was that she tried to say my mum said it so she wouldn't look so foolish, that was until I tried to take the piss out of my mum.

I think that particular one has become hardwired on the human genome at this point.  Imagine the horror of living there, you'd have to gouge out your eardrums to stop yourself going mad.

I'm humming it right now, thanks very much Staticgirl!
