I talk to myself pretty much any time I'm not actively talking to someone else. I'll just be mumbling and saying things and while I'm aware I do it, I'm not usually aware of when I'm doing it or even what I'm talking about.

I have a way of shrugging which my family makes fun of me for  :-( When I'm trying to think of something, I push my lower lip out and raise an eyebrow while stroking my chin. When I write, sometimes I make facial expressions which match the tone of what I'm writing. I do have a rather expressive face, but I only seem to use it when I am in certain moods - otherwise my face looks rather blank. I seem to always be wearing a red dressing gown. When I am relaxing, I sit on my chair either Indian style or with one leg under the other. When I have nothing to do, I instinctively bite my fingers/nails, or lick my fingertips and the back of my hands. I space out a lot but whenever I hear my name in the distance (even if I'm not being addressed) I look around me - except for when someone is actually calling me, of course  :roll: . In school, I constantly fiddle with my watch, changing the tightness of the strap - and I even do this when I'm not wearing it!

I touch my hair a lot. Especially on the back of my head. When I had long hair, I'd twirl it, but I can't do that anymore. I will slide the battery cover on and off of remotes and phones if I hold them for more than a few seconds. If I have a click pen, I will rapidly click it. I stand with my hands on top of my head sometimes. When I walk and I'm wearing a shirt, jacket, or dress with pockets, I will put my hands in them. If it's just my pants that has pockets, I won't. I don't really get that one. If I stand for too long at work, I'll stand in tree pose and switch back and forth between feet. This is a relatively new thing that I've noticed. I usually opt to eat in a quiet place rather than a noisy/bustling place, but only when I'm eating alone. I have a habit of not looking at people when I'm walking down the street.

If I am eating with another person, I will almost always cover my mouth with my hand while chewing. I also do almost anything to avoid using my front teeth to bite things, ripping with my hands if it's at all possible/polite, though I think this is thanks to nervousness about my front teeth after the whole kneeing/root canal thing.

I also tug my shirts down over my hips constantly while walking- I wear form-fitting clothing and the hems of shirts always seem to want to rest on my natural waist instead of my hips where I'd very much like them to.

I jump over puddles.
Also I am told that if I don't have an expresion on myface I look like an eastern European terrorist, hence I try and keep a small smile, or some other small expresion on my face at all times.

The upside to it is you get an excellent poker face.

Yeap.

\o

Honestly part of the difficulty in learning to have a more expressive face is that I've kinda gotten used to the benefits of not having one. But ultimately I gotta try cos it does suck for making first impressions  :-( might be less of an issue for a guy, idk.

I don't know, I've been called out for looking creepy in class.(by a student, duh)

We are uncannily similar habit-wise. Except I used to crack my left wrist a lot, not my feet.

Holy balls, my left wrist is the only joint in my body that does this. I am sure this is not good for it, but it's great for making people flip the fuck out.

I could only do it really often when i was younger. As I got older I couldn't quite as often and it was painful when I could do it. Now I can't do it at all.

The human body is weird.

I drum a lot on pretty much everything, with my hands. Myself, tables, notebooks, etc etc etc.

If I  clench my big toes and unclench them over and over and over again they start making this rapid tick-tick-tick-click-tick-click-tick noise.

I'm a fidgeter.

I like making sure lines of pens or pencils are even on at least one side.

I pick at scabs because they're uneven with my skin. :(

I chew my fingernails down to nothing because they're not smooth.

I make noises randomly, I'm not sure why. "Ook! Ech. Wrnnnhhh."

I recite music theory at times to help myself fall asleep.

I avoid stepping on lines in sidewalks. I feel overjoyed when I can step over an entire block.

When walking on tiles, I walk like a  knight moves -  two forward, one to the side. Since my kitchen and bathroom are tiled, it's hell to walk through these rooms.

When roleplaying, I act out the motions I am typing to see if they do seem natural.

I burn my bad poetry and lyrics instead of throwing them out, as I don't even want a homeless person who ends up finding it at the dump to read it.

I duck whenever I walk through a doorway, no matter how tall it is, as I'm used to smashing my head a lot.

I have to order M&M's into colour, and then sort them by how many there are, and eat from the row that has the most and work my way down (keep them even).

I can't help but touch people when I talk to them.

When someone says "Heyyo" I start laughing terribly hard due to a certain Dr. McNinja comic

All I can think of off-hand

Oh, and I draw on my jeans when I get bored. People keep asking me where they can get jeans like mine.  :lol:

Apparently when I'm around a girl I like I brush the right side of my hair back while talking. I also do the eyebrow thing that Patrick mentioned (and the guitar pick thing). Aside from those and the usual (cracking knuckles, tapping beats on desks, etc.) I don't really do much.

Oh, and I play air guitar if I'm listening to any song with a guitar in it (I can do it secretly while listening to Okkervil River) even when I'm out in public, some people think it is weird. I think that I totally nailed that solo.

I air anything. If an instrument hits me in a song, I will pretend to play it. I air-sing. Air piano. Air guitar, air drum...

Air tambourine, air harmonica, air bass, air flute...

I once gave myself a black eye whilst air guitaring. I told people I got my ass beat in a fight. It was less pathetic.

Sometimes I end up doing it without even noticing.

Also: I air instrument way too much. Sometimes I try to do multiple instruments at once. There's nothing like trying to riff on an air guitar while pounding away on your air piano, beating the shit out of your air drums, and rollicking through bass chords all while attempting a 5-part vocal harmony.

Somebody asked my roommate if I was her brother, and the next question was "does he have some kind of palsy?" because I was playing some serious air guitar.
