stolen from JessicaGiggles

I’m reading JessicaGiggles’s blog from start to finish at the moment, and saw this blogpost about 101 facts about her. So I wonder if I’ll be able to think up 101 useless facts about me?

Here goes:
0. I’m seriously technologically challenged, so I don’t know how to link back to her blog, can anyone give me some lessons please?
1. My little toe is just that – little. I have very long other toes, and then a really tiny little toe.
2. I’m really good at breastfeeding. I just decided before I had my first child that statistically it will work for me, because everyone else that I knew struggled with it, I should have it easy, and i did and still do.
3. I also have just one living grandparent, my father’s mother, Ouma, and I love her sooooo much. It freaks me out to imagine her not being there one day.
4. I drive a 1984 380SE Mercedes, a real pimpmobile, and I ADORE my car, I feel just as cool as someone driving a SLK.
5. I have two dogs and a cat, and the Chow (Leo) and the cat (Jelly) look like brother and sister, they have the same cream coloured fluffy hair.
6. I’m scared of the dark. Always was, and always will be.
7. I can fall asleep within 2 seconds flat. It irritates the living shit out of my husband as he’s an insomniac.
8. I love alternative music, The Cure, Sister of Mercy, Joy Division, you name it, I like it.
9. I love my job.
10. I hate that I don’t always make enough money with the job that I love so much.
11. My birthday is on the first day of December.
12. I love cocktails, any colour or any kind, I love them.
13. I know nothing about wines, except that I enjoy Shiraz.
14. I only access the interweb from my Blackberry, anything I can’t access that way is not worth looking at.
15. Purple is my favourite colour (just like Wenchy)
16. Going to the hairdresser is one of my favourite passtimes.
17. In winter I love wearing scarves.
18. I feel most comfortable when I see my shadow and she has two pigtails, thus I’m forever wearing my hair in pigtails.

20. I’ve broken my right arm twice.
21. I hate wearing earrings, and never do, but I have a total of 6 holes in my ears.
22. Long ago I had a tongue piercing, and would love another one
23. I have kankles.
