It's referring to a psychiatric term, " anal retentive", meaning the person holds back their poo. However, the way the term is used nowadays is to imply that the person is very fussy and particular about how everything is done or placed. In other words, they're very controlling.

That's me! All anal all the time! Seriously, I can't help it. I have a list and I gotta stick to it. It's hard for me to relax, I don't like sitting around. Late to bed, early to rise. Things to do, places to go, people to see...as long as they're on the list!
Anal means to want something done in a very particular way. For Example: 1.I want my eggs scrambled. (I'm being anal.) 2. I want my clothes neat and organized. ( I'm being anal.) I'm like that all the time. Hope this helps. =D
