Well...when I get nervous, happy, or when I fall down and still in shock, I flap my arms like a chicken. Seriously...I mean, I don't mean to do on purpose (I know I look like an idiot when I do), it just happens. So scary!
Yes I sniff everything too! I thought that was some fluke habit, I know it gets me plenty of strange looks when I'm in public. I sniff books as well, along with everything I eat. If it doesn't smell good I wont eat it, thus my aversion to sea food.
And yes there have been plenty of occasions where I have sniffed something and instantly regretted it.
I sniff books, too! Haha- it sounds like I'm getting high- but it's so true! I get high on books!
Random, weird story:
The reason why I haven't read the Lemony Snickett books is because when I was really young, I opened one of his books, and the strangest odor wafted out- it was a combination of old books, gasoline, and unripe bananas. Also, little white ants starting crawling out it. I was tramautized- by the aroma and the critters.
So moral of the story is be careful when you're sniffing books! I say smell books like you smell chemicals in a lab-don't stick your nose directly in it! First, use your hand to direct the fumes to your nose!
This is for only old books of course! I love inhaling in new books, teehee
another habit i have is having conversations with myself in my head lol
i see other people here narrate for themselves in their head...but no not me. i actually talk to myself and then ill answer myself as tho im in a conversation. often times ill be taking 2 opposing points of view and begin arguing/debating in my head lol
it gets worse if i catch myself doing this because then ill scold myself for talking to myself hahaha
My most embarrassing habit? Umm, I flail around? No, I mean...I mumble. I mumble when I talk fast, then I trip over my tongue, blah the words right out, then start again. Most people say nothing of it, but those that don't know me will give me weird looks. I also blurt out lyrics, not to sing them, but to communicate. Example:
Brother: "So, what do you want to do?"
Me: "I don't know, how about we leave some blue lights on?"
Brother: "Shut up."
Me: "Hey, there's a beat! You know, ever since you have been gone it's all caffeine free, faux punk fatigues..."
Combat Baby, Metric.
I also try to keep time to a double kick bass drum on metal songs. I guess the right term is air drum, but I do it! I get embarrased when people walk in and they see my bounce my foot up and down and I just go on, hoping they think I'm just bouncing my foot up and down and not air drum.
When I get nervous, like before an exam or something, I start practicing my piano scales. Not on a piano or anything just in midair or on a table. It's not really that embarrassing, but that's all I can think of.
