I've now watched Stranger Than Fiction twice. I kind of noticed the counting. I realized that I myself count a lot of things. Some things are normal. You have to count to knit or crochet or counted cross stitch. But I count other things as well. Stairs sometimes, seconds to leave conditioner on my hair, things like that. It makes me wonder if that is the reason I like the crafts that I do. There is counting involved. Hmmmm
P.S. The movie was really good, by the way. I enjoyed it.
ETA: I count clothespins as well.
