I've been tagged!

My first time being tagged! My cousin Di tagged me; I have to tell you six random things about myself. As if this whole blog isn't random enough.

1) I have to shaky my head violently after I sneeze. It's like I have to shake the sneeze feeling off my face (no, not the snot, that's what tissues are for!) Oh, and I almost always sneeze twice.

2) If one or two things are out of place and lying around in my home, I have to tidy them up or it drives me insane. But if more things are lying around and the place is a real mess I can't get motivated to clean up and end up stepping over the junk instead.

3) I am a total lip balm addict. Not just mmm, I like lip balm, but more like oh my gosh, I will go insane without my lip balm fix! If I need lip balm and don't have it on me I cannot think about anything else. I figured it out: I can't stand to feel the air on my lips. I'm not even talking about dry lips (shudder) but just feeling the air on my lips sends me mental - gotta have that lip balm barrier! Because I use lip balm constantly it is everywhere in my house - at least two in my studio, one in my pocket at all times, one in the kitchen drawer, one in each handbag, a few in my nightstand, etc. I have to have it to hand when I need it. I used to just buy cheap stuff because of how many I go through but recently decided to "splurge" (come on, it's less than £1.50) on nice lip balm - I'm currently loving a vanilla one by Avon. I mean, if I use the stuff so often, I might as well enjoy it when I do. Oh, and it has to be in a tube, not in a tub - I don't want it on my fingers.

4) It bothers me more than I can say when I see the toilet lid up, especially if I see it in pictures people post of their homes online. Do they not even notice? Ack! Close the lid, people!

5) I find it traumatic to be woken when I've just dropped off to sleep. If it happens twice in a row, I will be unable to sleep for the rest of the night. It's like my brain protecting me from it happening again - it prevents me falling asleep so I can't be woken.

6) Because of the above, I can't fall asleep if anyone is touching me. The image above? Not gonna happen. If someone is touching me they might move just after I fall asleep and it would wake me. So to protect me from the trauma my brain won't let me fall asleep.

(A lot of my issues stem from hypersensitivity (sensory integration problems) but that is a whole nother post of its own.)

Ok, so that is me. Now I have to tag 6 other people. Here are the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you (i.e. me)
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Write 6 random things about yourself
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them
5. Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger (me) know when your entry is posted

I'm tagging Rebecca, G&D, Joanne, Monica, Angela and Tiffany.
