Lemme think.. Well, everybody in my family is crazy, on mai Italian side.

Mai aunt is one of those naturalist organic food freaks who drinks raw goat milk, and obsesses over eggs (her daughter [rare, for this generation of Italian family] is allergic to eggs, luckily for her).

Mai uncle does stuff with computers and likes doing judo for fun (I suppose that's not really that weird, but he's also got some other, smaller weirdness factors).

Mai other aunt is a nurse who is only a little bit weird (probably the most average of mai aunts/uncles on mai Italian side). I don't really see her much, but she's got two kids (both guys) who she teaches random stuff with her nurse powers.

Mai mom is probably one of the crazier ones. She teaches science and Spanish (that's pretty crazy, in itself) for high-school (the ones with guys that slit the teachers' tires, and leave them death threats). She's got herself a super low-paying job where she works 9-12 hours a day in a small classroom, with 30+ students at a time. And that's a private school.. She was in her early 40s around when I started going through puberty (that was fun...), so I may be kinda biased. But, still, completely different from everybody else.

Mai grandma was a college professor in science (I guess my mom was kinda a downgrade..). I get a lot of traits from her, such as my tendency to hoard, and my liking for art (despite being terrible at it). She lives with mai aunt (the naturalist one, so she's pretty crazy) since she doesn't own a house, and she's poor (ahh, Italians [I can say that, I'm Italian]). When she was still raising four children, she was super poor. You know, the "work all day, can't afford lunchboxes for kids" kind of poor.

Now, mai great grandma (yep, she's still alive, somehow) has been in a nursing home for a while, so I don't know all that much about her past and such. However, I know that her parents actually lived in Italy (ha, you thought I was only distantly Italian). She's got herself a heavy New York accent. Of course, since she's old, it just sounds like she's old. As far as I can tell, she's just got the old people weirdness (obsession with wheel of fortune and such). However, as she was part of mai family of Italian people, she was probably very poor. At least, each generation had 7 people instead of 4.

Well, I've rambled on about how my family is weird (this is only a fraction of the people, not even including cousins). If you actually read all that, you deserve to know the actual name of mai Italian family (It's on mai great grandma's side.. and mai grandma's side.. and mai mom's side.. So it's not like you'd be able to find me. Also, there's about 300 people in the US bearing that name, so.. There's also about 300 people in Italy bearing that name..). Unfortunately for you, I'm not going to tell you the name. *cough* Carnicelli *Cough* A long line of Italian taxi drivers and Italian laundry cleaning service.

Note how the paragraphs get bigger over time.

I'm on the fence about this one. I don't mind them. I don't hate them but I don't really love them either.

Considering that I am one of them, yes. And we prefer to be called "unique".

Normal is dull. Eccentric people bring colour to life.

It depends on what type of eccentricity is being referred too. If it's some agender gibberish pronoun tumblr demonspawn eccentric then I don't want none of it.

Well since I'm eccentric myself, I prefer to mix with other eccentric people as those that aren't, usually bore me.
