    Compared To The Standards Set By Society

    Compared to the standards set by society, I have an odd family. First, I'll begin with my mother. She's been married four times. In between marriages she was with women. Somewhere along the way she got involved in the baptist church and decided it was a sin to be with women, so...

    Watch Us...you'll See

    My family and I share lots and lots of laughs and this is only between my immediate family (the ones who live with me: mom, dad, and brother). Maybe like a month ago or whenever Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist came out, the four of us watched it downstairs in my basement...

    Strange, crazy, disturbed, loving, hilarious, cynical, rude, obnoxious, funny, likeable, kind, fun-loving....we're just a mish mosh of unlikely characteristics rolled up into one dysfunctional package. Oh well, they're mine and I love them...most of the time! ;)

    My Grandma

    The rest of the family is bizarre - Jerry Springer could do a special just on my aunt's family - but Grandma is the best. My grandma has asthma and other serious breathing problems. Often you'll see her on her oxygen machine inside then step out on the porch a cigarette. She...

    We used to have a cat called Mink,

    he liked to sit on a shelf in the entrance hall to our house, he liked to go fishing with a claw to see what he could lift from people who came past. Anyway once he lifted my great aunt's hairnet. It was so damn funny.

    Yep They Are Strange

    My family might be strange and I should know but that's what makes life almost bearable. The little things like my almost four year old calling a vagina a diamond. My family is strange but they are there for me whenever I need it and that's all that matters.

    The Legacy of Strangemany.

    "we're All Pretty Much Over It"

    My family, while it seems strange to me, is probably like many others - well, my dad's side at least. This side of the family is very financially focused (who isn't nowadays!) and tends to like to paint a pretty picture despite what's going on underneath. My grandfather (my dad...
