Hobbies:
- I leave ridiculously long and wandering voice messages that make the person pissed that they had to listen to the whole thing to get to the point, but secretly a bit happy because it's funnier than a regular text message.
- Kind of OCDish... I try not to step on cracks (which looks particularly funny on tiled floor), and if the blocks of cement/tiles are large enough, I mentally bisect the corners and try not to step on the new lines formed. It's OCD because I do this 99% of the time I'm walking.

My Hobby: Correcting a slightly grammatically and/or syntactically wrong but perfectly understandable thing I said; and replacing it with another semantically equivalent, perfectly correct but immensely contrived thing.

(Guess whether this is the original or the corrected version of the sentence.)

You know when you're walking along the footpath and somebody else is walking the other way, and they're on one side of the path and you're on the other so you would just walk past each other, my hobby is moving to their side when we're about 10m away, forcing them to then shift to the other side at the last minute.
Also I must never make eye contact with them.

Also I like it when we're walking in opposite directions on a collision path, and seeing how long it takes them to shift to the side so we don't collide. I'm never the one that shifts. It's the one aspect of life where I feel like I have control. Mwahaha. I'm such a loser.
You're the architect of my dreams, Spencer. You plan them and build them on blue paper and then I dream them, Spencer. That's what you do for me. Thank you for that, Spencer. You prick.

I do that too! I always bisect, even on small tiles (causing me to go tiptoed most of the time). I also bisect the angles formed by the intersecting bisecting lines. I (with blocks small enough) also try to keep two steps per tile / block. I only travel along diagonal blocks where it may apply (bishop rules) and finally avoid lines bisecting corners of walls.

I suspect this only works with specific video card hardware, and only if you have some unnecessary control software running in the background.

My Hobby: Walking up behind people standing perfectly still and yelling, "HI!" as loudly as possible. Alternatively, just take someone facing away from you, walk right up next to them, hold an odd object (Your face, a shoe, a pack of spray paint, etc.) right up to their face and wait for them to turn around.
