To the rest of the issues: I've tried to 'force' myself to see things over the years, but it still takes extreme effort to become aware of trifling matters like laundry, dishes, vacuuming and which day to take the garbage to the curb. People on the street are invisible. Snow, rain and other conditions that would have an impact on other people's travelling time don't apply to me (see aforementioned tardiness conspiracy) and if people move furniture into a spot that used to be free floorspace, I'll bump into it for a while, despite seeing it there. Heh, my life is filled with these tiny ridiculous things- I wonder if I'll ever learn. I don't do the 'two different shoes' thing, but I routinely manage to get through the house (several flights of stairs) and outside before I realise that I completely forgot about shoes altogether.
