My hobby is spinning around the kitchen in circles for no reason.
I was thinking of either meditating or napping, but the way I do it, there's not much difference except in the explanation to the rest of my family.

My Hobby: Taking on any epic XKCD thought out task in the name of XKCD. Such as the one in LSR I mentioned.

Edit: Also obtaining the autographs of famous raptors. :P

I've just recently realized this, but my hobby is apparently wandering semi-aimlessly around the Plano/Richardson area for reasons that would sound ridiculous if I had to explain them.

Sliding down a steep bank in a kayakanoe. Application of the term 'woo' intensifies the enjoyment of this hobby.

Not flipping over at the end and landing face first on the riverbed is another hobby I try to ensure coexists peacefully with the first one.

My hobby: going to Google maps and picking a random road, then following that road and timing how long it takes me to find a place I recognise.

I can't afford to do this in real life anymore with petrol prices the way they are. :cry:

I pop my SO's zits and blackheads, clean his ears and care for his psoriasis. I think I was a cleaner wrasse in my last life.

My second hobby is to try to do serious research on youtube. About sciency things. Sometimes it's awsome, sometimes it's shocking, but there's a lot of fun to be had.

That's so sweet and kind of gross at the same time. Protip: If he gets some sort of skin infection, like MRSA or something, draining it regularly helps a lot.

I once watched a two and a half hour lecture on hematology on youtube. I can safely say I have seen the most awesome granny figure ever. Her comparison between dirt and platelets was inspiring.

At any rate, I very much enjoy destroying words for irony. Words such as "ignorism" work very nicely.

I do that too (well, if my school bus counts as "public transport"). Not so much any more, because there's always some smartass that turns it once then turns it back, saying he "solved it in 1 second". It's not funny. It's not clever. It's not original.

Randomly doing yoga at the computer. Or at the park. Or on a bench while smoking.
Calling people, yelling "O HI!" and hanging up.
Pondering life, the universe, etc.
I also enjoy sitting in the dark until my eyes adjust, then creeping around my house stealing (and later returning) small items from near sleeping people. Ninjas don't let themselves get rusty. For this reason I'm very popular at parties when the times comes to stealthily draw on people.

I have a deck of cards with me at all times that I shuffle when I'm thinking. It gives me something to do with my hands, and I'm an awesome shuffler.

My hobby: intentionally placing the hyphen one word to the left when I try to describe something as "adjective ass-noun" when electronically conversing in enlightened circles with the intended effect of having the hyphen mentally replaced to its correct location by xkcd fans, while confusing everyone else.
Example: "That man in the hat has aspired to become something more than the common-ass hole."

My Hobby: Conducting/channeling music while I'm walking around. The movements are like those "visualisations" in a media player, even I don't know how they quite sync with the music. I'm sure I look retarded/disturbed/possessed/stupid to the general public.

I do that with random fandoms that I'm part of. Most recently succesful was A Series of Unfortunate Events.
(The group was talking about their parents, and I said "Have you been good to your mother?", and then across the circle someone says "The question is, has my mother been good to me." They smile. I smile. Everyone else in the circle looks confused.

Good times, good times. ^__^ )
