Haha, for once a thread that I'd have trouble contributing to, thanks to the fact that I've always been far too open on forums, and many people here may even remember my old over-detailed profile or have had those long IM convos with me where I loosen up, so to say.
Well, I mentioned it elsewhere, but for one thing - my birthday. I mentioned it elsewhere, but two somewhat funny things about it:
I'm already 23, but my 23rd birthday is tomorrow. Blame being born in Europe in the early hours of the morning
My birthday is also exactly 1 day (and 2 years) earlier than my younger brother's. Fancy that 'coincidence'.
Another amusing Oto fact you may have heard before:
Last December, I came THIS close to joining the Canadian Communist Party. It wasn't something I was toying with as a joke either.
An interesting Oto genealogical fact:
Genetically (i.e. not in title), I am a direct descendant of Russian and Danish royalty by the way of ties to the German noble house of Oldenburg. Not close, mind you, in the 9th generation, but still.

Word. Same here, uh... in fact people often point to my pronounciation as a sign of a Russian accent, whereas it really has more to do with my mumbling (that extends to any language) than anything else.
My eye-contact behaviour with people is quite strange too. Sometime around 12 years old I developed a habit of avoiding eye contact (I kid you not, I was convinced at the time, which was around grade 6, that people could READ MY MIND that way), and though lately I've been consciously training myself against that, it can still slip into a 'look away while talking' mode and I'm sure it annoys people
