    sometimes too much color/movement/stuff causes my Aspy eye too shut down.

        but I'll often find myself finger-fiddling (or 'piano playing') before I realize that I'm tense. The trick is in realizing that there's a potential problem before it becomes overwhelming (and also in finding a socially acceptable way to deal. 'Practicing' piano doesn't really draw attention, sitting down in the playground & playing with pebbles does).
