Those Wacky Simmies...

Rhoda Bagely. The annoying guest who would never leave…
Christian: Wait, you’re the one who had Father invite her to move in. Now you’re complaining about her?
Yup, pretty much.
Christian: *shakes head*

Sherman our fainting diva, has an ‘episode’ each and every time he sees her. As Lisa pointed out, it may be what keeps her from frightening him to death. I hadn’t thought of it this way.
Christian: Who is this ‘Lisa’?
Another Sim Goddess… stop interrupting every two seconds will ya? Otherwise this is gonna get long winded.
Christian: …
As I was saying, he faints at the sight of his sister’s ghost even when she hasn’t done anything to warrant such a reaction. Sometimes I let him lay around all fainted other times I poke him and send him on his way.

What is really neat is her body being dragged back to the tombstone each morning. The first time I saw it I thought I imagined it. Not sure why I find it so fascinating, but just like Ruby, I tend to be easily impressed. heh.
Christian: *smirks*

I’ve also decided that since Sherman has already died for me I’m gonna stop picking on him. As I’ve mentioned before, he’s a good sport and he’s grown on me. That and defying death with quick thinking and a flower, he’s earned the right to hang out and have some fun.

Christian’s turn to have an opportunity. Why do I bother mentioning these and not others? Well I have my reasons, other than the opportunity to entertain his in-laws at the park…
Christian: *smirks* They use to think I wasn’t good enough for their little girl. I wasn’t ‘rich’ enough for her. Well I proved them wrong. We’re still happily married and are considered one of the ‘rich’ families of Riverview.
And yet, there you are panhandling in the park… such a proud moment.
Christian: *facepalm*
Anyhow back to the reason I let him take this opportunity even though he doesn’t ‘really’ need the money… Of all people to call him and offer this opportunity to him, its his brother, Steve! I know right? I had to read it a few times to make sure I was not imagining it. Anyhow by kicking him out, he became a NPC of sorts. Now my curiosity is piqued. I need to find him. I need to see how he’s doing. I found him still working in the medical field where I placed him.

Then we followed him home. Here. Nice house. Eventually I will have Christian finish this opportunity and send him to his brother’s house. I’m just dying to get in there and poke around.
Christian: I can’t believe I have to report to my brother. My kid brother the first spare.
Yes well, your kid brother is on his way to being a doctor and just remember, I almost sent you off and him marry Precious.
Christian: *pauses* Why didn’t you?
*scratches head* I don’t know. You’re the first born male. And scary as it may be, you’re stats and name came from my son. Purely by accident mind you. The game picked genius, the die picked everything else. And yet you still ended up very much like your name’s sake.

Christian: So what will happen to Akara?
Hmmm… good question. So far Franklin has been primed for his position as heir. I could simply give it to Akara seeing how she too has lovely interesting traits…
Christian: We really are your guinea pigs aren’t we?
Cha! I told you that.

You know I have to say at first this was annoying. Then it dawned on me… this is much better than their flailing of arms complaining about not being able to do whatever it is I had sent them off to do and that action promptly dropping from their queue. At least this way they pause, move out of each other’s way and then go on to do what I told them to… providing Mrs. Absent Minded doesn’t forget what it was I sent her to do.

Remember the opportunity I had Sherman doing? Running for an hour around town… that guy there, the one floating in the window… ya that’s who he was to report back to.
Christian: Floating? Impossible! Sims don’t float unless they’re… oh. I see.
Now during Grim’s visit to one of Sherman’s friends, Sherman stood outside waiting to be let inside. In the meantime, Christian was off at the park playing his guitar to an emptying park and the girls were home taking care of the kids… hopefully. I left them alone for the most part. I figured they could handle a couple of hours on their own… right?
Christian: Roo, you’re making me nervous.
Just remember you love her… you said so…

*sighs* Seriously thought they were smarter than this. I mean, this isn’t TS2 for cripes sakes.
Christian: *blinks* So uh… fire death, huh…
*chuckles* Ya, fire death… unless you have something else in mind.
Christian: *sighs* Nothing, I still love her… that’s disgusting… but I still love her.

Ruby got a call from an old friend who wanted to hang out. So I sent her.
Christian: Him again?
Well not really no. She went over to visit her friend Ar .. Er … ya I don’t remember her name. She just happens to live in this house… with Don Lothario
Christian: How convenient.
See the chick next to Don? Ya that’s the chick she went to visit.
Christian: *sighs* Naturally she didn’t pass up the chance to flirt with Don.
Just remember Christian, flirting is all she ever did.

Precious wanted to throw a party. I gave her the perk for the awesome party host thing and had her call the crowd over for a swim party / birthday party.
Christian: No one ever swims at these events. They tend to gather in and around the house and stuff their faces.
True and occasionally they dance and mingle.
Christian: Or flirt with the host…
Your mom did that not Don. He just didn’t reject her is all.
Christian: *scoffs*

I don’t mind throwing parties now. In TS2 I avoided them like the plague. Now they’re so easy and makes people happy for a while. Not to forget the leftovers from the people bringing food over and all the party crashers that are potential friends.
Christian: Do I even know these people?
Uh… one of them you became friends with after beating her relentlessly in chess.
Christian: *chuckles* You may want to narrow that down a bit more.
*pokes Christian* Don’t be such a poop.

I actually queued up Sherman to take the baby to the cake, next thing I know Precious has baby in hand and does the honors.
Christian: Well it is our offspring after all.
Just be glad I didn’t make you do it.
Christian: No one appreciates that more than I do.

Meet little Miss Spare Heiress, Akara. She was most displeased with me. I uh… forgot she hates the outdoors. Along with her cake happy moodlet was a traumatized for being outdoors to cancel it out. So I sent her inside to change that pink to purple and guess who she passed on her way to the dresser…
Christian: Who?

Him… your baby brother. He hasn’t changed a bit. He’s just as cute as the day he ran off to be a NPC.
Christian: He was in the same house as me and never even spoke to me? Did he see Mother? Did he approach Precious?
Uh… Yes… Yes… No.

It was odd actually. They had become so distant that she had the friendly introduction rather than friendly greet. Odd don’t you think?
Christian: Not really. He’s become a stranger to his own family.
A family that betrayed him and kicked him out…
Christian: Details.
Yes well they got along well. She entertained him and had him laughing like the old days. They aren’t friends, but they are at least not enemies.

Christian: I see and erm… so uh… tell me something.
*tries to stifle her giggles* If I can… sure. What is it?
Christian: Who is that?
That would be one of the party crasher potential future friends I mentioned.
Christian: She’s lovely.
Oh goody, I was hoping one of the women would catch your eye. *claps happily*
Christian: Why am I suddenly nervous?

I didn’t do much to change her. Akara is a cutie in her own right. I just couldn’t stomach the pink.

Oh, sorry. I was having an Aquabats moment.

I swear, Steve really looks like a friend of DD's. I'm gonna hafta scan his pic so you can see.

Akara looks bored.

Yeah, i finally saw the Coward Faint (TM) in my game yesterday, and it was from him seeing Mr. SuziCat's playable ghost, ha ha ha! He shows up at the gym, which is kind of funny.

Yeah, I like the standing there thing better than the flailing thing too. Both are annoying, but standing there is less so.

It's weird seeing Slutty Don old--he up and left my Riverview.

I saw the two identical old ladies in the first far away shot, ha ha! Are they twins???

Akara is a cutie; I liked the pink, hee hee.

It's good to see Steve again--yeowl! He reminds me a little bit of The EO's rocker guy, whose name is escaping me at the moment.

And Petalbrook is a commenting nut! :-D

Yay! I finally had a chance to catch up on reading this. Why is it that whenever Rhoda Bagely uses the VR machine, she looks like she's headbanging?? :O))

So ... I'm going to assume that the streak against the wall is Rhoda getting pulled back to her tombstone? I hope to see better pictures of such a situation in the future ..... unless I see it with my own eyes. :O))

STEVE!! DUDE!!! You're gonna be a doctor and you live in a KICK-ASS house?! AWESOME!!! I think in order for me to kick any extra kids outta the house, they'd have to do something to deserve it (or something would have to be implied that there was a reason for it). :O))

Daww ... Akara is so cute hugging the bunny!

DOH! Death ... caught on camera! ;O))

Ooops. Why'd she pee herself?! I thought sims were supposed to know how to take care of these things. *shakes head*

Hiya Don. You got OLD!

Akara looks drugged out on something in that toddler shot.

Man ... Steve is HAWT! Although, it annoys me that EAxis pushed the game through so many channels to get it released, and they failed to take care of pixel-glitches around the necks of sims. This is not the firs time that I've seen those boxy-shadow-pixels around a sims neck. *GLARE*

You gonna have Christian cheat on his wife? Or is she doomed to a death by fire? :O)

Why does Akara look like she has a lazy eye in her makeover shot?

*goes to play with Daren*

AeronwyDiobhell said...

Glad to see Sherman is made of such stern stuff. *grins* But yay for Sherman to finally get a reprieve from being killed! *claps*

Maybe it's not that you have to report to him, but that your brother gave you a dare that you accepted? *shrugs*

You're right, the foot tapping is much better than the arm flailing. What bugs me is when they have a HUGE WIDE OPEN SPACE TO MOVE and they -still- stand there tapping their foot, waiting for someone to get out of their way, because they wanted to go along that particular patch of ground to get where they're going.

Uh-oh. *winces and scrolls down* Oh, geeze, she peed herself? I haven't had anyone do that in TS3! *shakes her head*

*chews on her lip* It's too bad her friend didn't want to come over there to get together with Ruby, instead of throwing temptation her way. Although true, she did limit herself simply to flirting.

Parties are ONLY super-easy if you took the great host perk. If you try to throw a party without one, in my experience at least, it's always an unmitigated disaster. *grimaces*

Happy birthday, Akara! May you live a long and fruitful life, outside of the house, where Ruby can't torment you with constant death attempts. *grins*

Hiya kiddo! You are still just as cute as ever. *waves hello to Steve* I'm glad he reconnected with his family at least a little bit. (And how odd that he became almost a stranger - Madison is still best friends with her sister and brother.)

Why were you hoping someone would catch his eye? He's already married for goodness sake! Although Precious didn't seem to happy with the way Christian was staring at her.

*scoffs at SuziCat* Taking up space quoting a song and making your post look long doesn't count as being a commenting nut! *winks*

Oh no. Is Christian going to be following in the same vein as his mother and become a philanderer? LOL!
