No, Nathan. You can ask questions.

Kylie, tell us about your family. Brothers? Sisters? Parents?
Do you have a favorite cousin/aunt/grandmother?
Describe a typical family reunion for us. Does someone get drunk and call someone else a whore for stealing their man? Is it over a nice dinner, that after grace, everyone eats with their napkin on their lap with polite conversation? Would this reunion be at Christmas, or Thanksgiving, or...?
Is it hard for you to be so far away? What do you miss most about your family?
SIDENOTE: I have a lot of close family that are Mormons, and while the Book of Mormon has some silly and old-fashioned stories, I would not call the church batshit crazy. It is really just as crazy as Protestant churches. I've attended both. Fundamental LDS, on the other hand... They're batshit crazy.
This is Kylie's time to shine!
Kylie, when can we practice and eventually record our duet? And why are you such an attention whore? Your name can come first on the marquee, OKAY?!

2. I'm going to assume you mean a metamorphosis of sorts. I went from being a nerdy, shy, quiet girl in high school with few friends to an outgoing, friendly person in college. I felt comfortable being me. Still nerdy, though.
3. My closest experience would be after I had that low point I discussed earlier in the thread that I had to take medication if I felt I was going to have a panic attack. The first time I took the medication I was in my bed trying to sleep and I swear that I heard someone call my name. So, I went into the dorm hallway to find that no one was there.
By Kafkaesque, I mean more like "marked by a senseless, disorienting, often menacing complexity," "the Kafkaesque terror of the endless interrogations." (This is Kafkaesque: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEyFH-a-XoQ). Ever experience something like this?
My parents divorced when I was kind of young. I have two half sisters. Angie (26) and Elisa (24). A half brother named Keith (9). We all have different father's. Actually, my two eldest sisters... their father's are brothers. My sister Elisa, however, grew up with my father raising her. We don't consider ourselves half family though. We are really close. Since we were all raised in Jersey a large portion of our lives we are REALLY volatile though. I have some AWFUL stories about things we used to do to each other. My poor Mother was going to school and working as a nurse full time and would have to come home for medical emergencies.
My mother is really down to earth and accepting. She is actually bisexual. She also is a bit of a nudist. She just married a Korean guy she met off of the internet. He works for the government and lives in Missouri. Military type. Strict with the worst sense of humor. He has six or seven children. So, I have 2 step brothers Richard (20) and Shaun (mid twenties) and 4 or 5 step sisters Kait, Shannin, and two others or three. I met one of them once and one or two others are estranged.
My dad is hilarious, not in touch with his feelings, and strict. I have always considered myself a daddy's girl. He was a cheer dad and supported me in that. He married a crazy Puerto Rican woman. She is nasty and spits venom, but cares about me deeply. She has said some of the most hurtful things I have ever heard in my life. She netted me a step-brother named Ariel (28).
My favorite cousin was probably Brian, but I don't talk to ANY of my cousins really anymore. I have a million of them. My favorite Aunt and Uncle is Karen and Paul. Karen is actually my dad's sister. Paul is married to her. He used to work at M&M mars and gave us GIANT fucking bags of the best candy. I got to taste the M&M crisps a year before they came out. None of my birth grandmother's are alive anymore. My dad's mother died before I was born and I took her name as my middle name. My mom's mother named Ellie was awesome. She got into a car accident, so she was a bit daft and would hoarde things. She'd also give us a dollar for a quarter. My step-grandma. I guess is like my real one since she is all I ever really knew makes the best cheesecake ever. So, that is awesome.
If it's my immediate family it'll be my dad's side. A bunch of Kennedy's. It'd be in the summer and there would be beer and tons of people that I have never met before because my family is THAT BIG. I went to school with a kid named Shawn Kennedy for 6 years before I knew he was related to me. No fighting. There would be quoits and fun picnic type games. Good food. I loved out family reunions. The only tension was when my uncles divorced some of my favorite aunts. Also, my uncle found out that he had a child from Panama that moved here and he kind of didn't show any care what so ever. The whole family got really mad about it.
It is hard to be away from them sometimes because my family is huge. I mean I have 2 sisters, 1 brothers, 5 or 4 step sisters, and 3 step brothers. I have a lot of people surrounding me and a lot of traditions. I miss everything about them. The food, the fighting, just spending time with them.
Okay, well. It all started when no one would listen to how my day had gone so far. My uncle Joey was preoccupied with his new 1963 Rambler and leaves to go get something to touch-up his paint because there is a little nick in it. So, I get in the car, so I have something to do. I am sitting in the driver's seat and turn on the radio, but I didn't KNOW it was broken. I turn the key hoping that it would turn the radio on by using the auxiliary option. I was young, so I turned it the wrong way. I then think that the R on the gear lever means "radio". I accidently backed up the car into the house. I though Uncle Joey and my dad, Danny would never forgive me! But, I was wrong. My dad told me he would never stop loving me. I then realized that I was addicted to attention.
I've also been compared to Courtney Love and someone else a bunch.
I actually think Patricia is adorable, so I don't mind the comparison.
Favorie super hero and villain, why?
Favorite member of the Wu-Tang?
Which Star Wars character do you think you resemble the most?
Really dig that leather.
What have you come to believe is the purpose of human existence on Earth?
You're obviously a 'good sport' but are you 'down for whatever'?
Have you ever been arrested? What for?
If you wanted to be kissed soulfully, maybe you should have kissed as fucking duck...Now that would have been funny!
Quick question, has anyone else here actually held a fetus? They're not very cute.

and the super villans would be a tie between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. I wish I had a reason besides being fascinated with them as a child.
I'm going to say Mara Jade Skywalker because of the hair and nothing else.
I have no clue what this means.
Never. I am a law abiding citizen.
Do you have any phobias?
Do you have any irrational fears?

No really. Assuming that I live through whatever happened the first thing would be trying to make sure my friends are okay.
I don't have a worst enemy. There are a few people I dislike, but generally I don't hate anyone.
I have a laundry list of people that I wish I was closer to, but I am very closed off emotionally. It takes someone reaching out a few times before I open up and let them know who I really am, so closeness is hard to achieve.
What kind of belief system/philosophy do you follow today? What brought you to develop this outlook on your place in the world?
