If people are around when I change the string, I make it look like it's a very precise process that's difficult to do.
Lol. I can relate to that one  :P

1. When i almost land a hard trick and the two diabolos get tangled up, i ALWAYS throw the diabolos and handsticks in the air and collapse on the ground. I know wierd, but its true.
2. When I do 2d, i never use my blue sun, i only use my purple and green one.
3. When i get new diabolos, the first thing i do is switch the cups around or switch the hubs.
4. I hate diaboloing in public, unless im doing shows.
5. I have three sticks (mb extremes, henry's carbons, and henry's aluminum), but i always use my carbons for shows for good luck.

If I practice where there's lots of non-jugglers around I look really angry/focused and curse a lot and loudly when missing. I don't do this because I'm unhappy or need to concentrate (actually I'm usually in a very good mood and sing along to music when I practice alone) but it's sort of a reflex to make people stay away from you so as to avoid questions like "are you trying to be a clown?".

I don't walk around asking footballplayers heading a ball if they're trying to be sealions...

I always practice on my driveway facing the street. It feels weird if I face away from the street, because then there are people walking behind me, and I can't tell if their watching me or not. XD

Even though, I have only been practicing for a short while, after reading this topic, I realised I have picked up habits already
1. Always carry my diabolo, even to work and to places I know I wont be able to use it.
2. If someone is watching me practice, for some stupid reason, I start with the hardest or newest trick I have learn't and I nearly always fail doing.
3. If practicing by myself or other people around me, if I drop the diabolo, I put the sticks together and whip a figure 8 in front of me, for no reason what so ever.

I don't neccesarily have to have my diabolo on me, but I always have juggling gear on me. I find that my hands actually itch for juggling.

Yes I know, I am strange.

Before I diabolo I always do an odd number of deep squats.

I'm averaging about 723, This is cutting into my practice time but I have the glutes of zeus.
