My immediate family rocks. Extended family.. on my mom's side, it's messed up. I'd like to leave it at that. Dad's side, everyone's pretty ok. My paternal grandmother may have been one of the awesomest people in the world.

Whatever you do, don't use the Band Aid brand antibacterial band aids. BAD idea. I used them on a gash on my leg once because they were all we had in the house.. they gave me a whole new set of weird tiny cuts all around the original cut.

I'd want to see how things have changed in the future, but once I'm dead.. I want to stay dead. The idea of returning for a second chance, presumably with all the memories and knowledge left over from the first one, at life weirds me out.
