    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.

    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...

    warrior: USA vs the world and when Europe won she screamed bullshit and turned the tv off. My only thought was ' calm down, damn, you don't even influence the outcome' I didn't say it so I just laughed at her

    The Legacy of Strangemany.

    From my experience, some strange families (like mine) take great pride in their strangeness--they see it as part of their identity, what makes them unique--and celebrate their oddness through original traditions that have somehow evolved or they have invented. Other families (and...

    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.

    "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...
