Pay day Folksy purchase


So yesterday was pay day-hurray! As with last month I opened up the Folksy page and chose my favourite thing.....this gorgeous necklace from Concept Design Form. I love the colour, as may be apparent by now my brain works very much in terms of colour. I can't wait to see this in the bead as it were and will then make a decision whether it will be a present for me, or someone else!
The colour thing is very strange, apparently as a child I would go nuts if my outfit didn't match. Even in my day job where I dispense medications I get temporarily stumped if a box colour changes, often I can't recall a brand name but will remember the colour of a capsule. I even have nick-names for meds dependant on their colour. I dread the day I phone a Dr about 'babies cardigans'- (Diazepam 5mg- a lovely soft yellow!) I have a similar affliction with song lyrics, I forget artists and song names but could hold whole conversations in lyrics! Do you have a brain that is wired for colour, sound, taste?

This condition is called synesthesia (Google it) and is more common than you might think.
I see my weeks / days / months / years as patterns.
Interesting subject ... it's given me an idea for a blog post in the future :o)

I'm not sure how my mind is wired but I know what you mean about songs (I am very good at dating them too for some bizarre reason). I suspect that most of the time my brain isn't even plugged in, nevermind turned on!!

I have a thing about colours too, and numbers but that's another story!! I'm also good at dating songs and guessing what time it is, just plain weird!!!When I was little my Mum used to make all my clothes and if my woolly tights didn't match my cardigan, I would have a hissy fit :)

I tend to take things apart mentally and make a flat pattern of everything in my head, which apparently is a bit weird!
