ocd girl

My friend Kez, who also suffers from OCD, sent me this video today. There was no letter attached. All I had to go on was the subject line of the email, which was “OCD Girl.” I’ve watched the video now, and I’m not sure what he meant by that. Did he think the young woman featured in the piece suffered from OCD, or did he think that watching her lick her way around all the surfaces of a hotel room would give people OCD, and perhaps send me spiraling into one of my patented OCD “I never want to touch anything ever again” freefalls?

    And, yeah, I knew from the shots that professionals made it… I still thought that she was crazy, though… Crazy women, quite often, have friends that know how to produce good videos.

    Always check your hotel mattresses for bed bugs, for your own sake and the sake of others — to help stop the spread.

    In an infested mattress you will find black specks/smears along the edges in the creases, usually at the headboard end, which taste a lot like bed bug shit.

    John:

    1) thank you for the attention.

    2) it was a joke, alluding to the aforementioned ocd girl who licks everything in the hotel room.

    3) I CAN tell the difference between bat shit and mouse shit (and how fresh it is) by the way it crumbles, but I haven’t eaten any yet, to my recollection.

    It is an odd marketing choice. Because I get it, I get it, very clean rooms, but what do I remember? Saliva on doorknobs and tv remotes. Ew.

    Exterminator:

    Doesn’t bat guano *look* remarkably different from mouse droppings?

    I’ve heard it’s nearly impossible to tell–except in cases of extreme age–how recent the latter are.

    Suzie:

    I’m with you. That was the most upsetting ad I’ve seen, with the possible exception of the one in which a woman is out on a high ledge, for the purpose of touching the new iPhone or something.

    I knew that reading this site would eventually pay off! This video has given me my best idea ever. I can’t tell you what it is, but I’ll tell you this. It will revolutionize the adult film industry! This is an historic day!

    It’s really depressing when a hotel toaster gets more action than you do.

    CKL: Thanks for the opportunity to clarify:

    In that I personally can remark on the visual distiction
    (as in “hmmm, kinda looks more like bat droppings than mouse droppings to me, sir — see how they’re a little longer, a trifle chunkier, and glitter slightly from the bug wings?), they look remarkably different. In that most untrained folks I’ve encountered can’t tell the difference at all, no, they don’t look remarkably (as in unambiguously, obviously)different.

    Perhaps other region’s bats poop differently than the Big Brown Bat or the Little Brown Bat of Michigan. I wouldn’t know.

    “Then why do you crumble them, Mr. Exterminator?” you may ask. Just to make sure, CKL, just to make sure.

    As to the mouse poop: recent mouse droppings are squishy, because they haven’t dried out yet. Old ones are dry. The same can be said of your, mark’s, or my poop, no doubt.

    So yes, you can tell if they’re recent.

    Perhaps you inferred that I meant I could accurately tell the age of any mouse poop? Nope: just if it’s fresh. Anyone can. Squishy = fresh.

    You really never know what’s going to happen when you start a thread. It’s kind of beautiful in way. It’s like watching a flower open.

    mark,

    i sent the clip because it really freaked me out and got me thinking, “who was in my hotel room AFTER the cleaning crew left? they were just in the hallway, this girl has a room key and starts spreading her DNA all around my room, and then she just leaves!”

    who would think that? maybe mark will agree…

    “or maybe she’s got OCD so bad she has to lick only freshly-cleaned things?”

    and then “who’s licking my office supplies at work!”

    i’m disgusted with dealing with other people’s germo. just when i thought i was getting better, someone sends me a phone-licking video!”
