Marguerite dans le pays de l’amour et de nectar 4.1

OMG LIKE HAI!  Happy Halloween!  I used Google translate to make the title, so if it’s incorrect in any way, blame Google (and our friend who works for Google) and not my own ignorance of the French language.  And although I know a name like Daisy would still be Daisy in French, I chose to use the French word for daisy because reasons.  I also no longer remember what I translated… But it’s something about love in the land of nectar.  Whatever.  Last time, um… last time we hung out with the Zales… er… HI! I HAVE HAD ADULT STYLE BEVERAGES!  And OOH!  A new one has just appeared.  Must’ve been Daisy and her mixology.  NO!  It was my HUSBAND!  So I’m on vacation starting NOW.  We’ll be gone until 11/5 because it’s our anniversary!  Look at us and our one year of marriage.  Aw.  ANYWAY!  BACK TO drunken BUSINESS!

Last time, Daisy took over!  She screwed that nimrod Brandy who I TOTALLY HATE, and we brought Daphne back from private art school where she learned how to twerk.  Not paint or draw or anything… then, Daisy headed off to France!  So!  Let us see what she gets up to, shall we?  Indeed we shall.  Indeed.  Slurrrrp… delicious… 😀

I wanted Daisy to do at LEAST one quest in the limited time she was in France, so we checked the board!  Some French lady lost a baseball.  Loser…
Screenshot
Daisy:  YAY!  France!

Daisy: Let’s go find that lady and her missing item!
Screenshot-2
I brought my rebel ride with me!  YEEHA!  (Author’s note: She’s so damn fast travelling through France on this thing my game can’t keep up!)

Beautiful!
Screenshot-3
Daisy: YEA!  I LOVE this place…

After I finally found the staircase like a NOOB, things started happening!
Daisy rocks and has a blast in the ruins looking for the baseball very important lost item!  She paused while breaking these rocks apart and scratched her butt.  I laughed out loud, but I missed the shot… Damn.

Screenshot-7
HA!  That heart key is totally radiating from her ASS!  Just sayin’…
Screenshot-8
TADA!  Daisy is mad adventurer!  Except she’s a coward, so she was getting scared moodlets all the time… Aw… Rebellious/Coward is a sweet mix… it’s kinda real?  Like, sometimes we think we’re all tough and rebellious, but we’re actually scared?  And blah blah I MENTIONED THE DRINKING TONIGHT RIGHT?!?…

Daisy meets a local… *kiss* *kiss*
Screenshot-9
And she bought stuff from her, like the incense, and the nectar maker just in case someone in the OMG 26 GENERATIONS WHAT AM I DOING family decides they want to be a nectar maker…

Then, as we all recall, Daisy’s first wish upon arriving on French soil was to purchase a bottle of nectar!  So we head over to the nectary!  Spoiler: Good things happen.
Screenshot-10
Simmer Sighting:  I like him.  Let see what happens?  NOTE:  I TOOK NOTES!
REAL NOTE: His name is Gustave Delven.  This Simmer thinks he’s cute…

Daisy sees him too!  Not because I control Daisy or anything
Screenshot-11
(I recently learned this was called heartfarting… fascinating…)
Daisy likes him too!  (Drunk Author’s Note:  I have yet to discover what they had in common…)

SO!  Here comes a HUGE amount of picspam, and seriously, I had very little to do with anything, these two, would autonomously interact in the most positive ways I’ve ever seen, even their casual banter was fraught with extreme happiness… and GO!  Cue picspam!
Screenshot-12
Well Hello!
Screenshot-13
Person Plus!
Awesome!
Screenshot-14
Dude With Hat:  Yes, Hello Shopkeeper? I’d like a … Hello?
Screenshot-15
Daisy: YES MUSIC 😀
Everyone else:  Annoyed posture cuz they can’t get no service!
Screenshot-16
Gus:  SHOOTING STARS 😀
Daisy: Tell me more!
Everyone else:  Yo?  Hello?  Shopkeeper?  Service?
Screenshot-17
Daisy: Ladybugs :D!
Gus: *she’s beautiful*
Other Patrons: F this … I’m goin’ over here…
Author’s Note: I just watched them be completely infatuated with each other.  I had kind of a different idea in mind for Daisy, but her and Gustave genuinely hit it off in a way I’ve never really seen before.  Moving on…
Daisy: He’s falling for it! Hook line and sinker!
Screenshot-18
Gustave:  I’m having impure thoughts.
Nectary visitor:  Yes, I’d like… STUF NO ONE CARES!
Screenshot-19
Dude with Hat:  HELLO?
Daisy & Gus: FACES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ❤
Screenshot-20
Daisy: Hi Gus.
Gus: Uh.huhuhhuh…
Lady wanting to buy nectar:  F this… I’m going over to Nectar King.  McNectar blows.
Note:  I’m pretty sure Daisy’s learning the songs, right now… but again… Adult style beverage consumption…
Screenshot-21
Gus: Dear Daisy, you’re beautiful, but the song goes like this *SINGS*
Screenshot-22
Gus: NAILS IT!

Ideas…
Screenshot-23
Daisy sings *poorly* about roses…
Gus:  *thinks* she’s so damn hawt

Daisy is cowardly, this action is a NO in her options, but I feel, after all she’s been through, and with her rebellious nature, she’d GO FOR IT!  HEAT OF THE MOMENT KISS!  *I mean, they’re singing together!*
Screenshot-24
Decapitated Patron:  I see a bottle of nectar I’d like to bu—WTF?  GET A ROOM!
Gus:  You made a move!  YES!
Screenshot-25
Daisy: Don’t break my heart!  I’m afraid!
Previously Decapitated Now Bespectacled Patron: What does it take to get a bottle of nectar in this town?
Screenshot-26
Gus: get yer hawt ass over here!
Bespectacled Patron: F this shiz.  I’m going to Nectar King.

Daisy: Hey Gus?  I rolled a wish to watch the stars with you…
Screenshot-27
(although she looks like she might be double jointed, this Simmer is a romantic.  Go watch the stars in France with Gustave.  You deserve it Daisy.)

Ooh:
Screenshot-28
Getting closer!

And Closer!
Screenshot-29
**Unnecessary Author’s Note:  I barely controlled this… She rolled want after want, and he was SO receptive!  Watch!
Screenshot-30
Romantic flower embrace scene… D’aww… Drunk Author’s Note Daisy & Gus 5EVEAH!
Screenshot-31
Loves!  Aw!  WHOA!  Whoa… what do we have here?  From a quick “leap into arms” to this?
YES.  THIS IS A ROOM IN THE NECTARY!
Screenshot-32
OOooohh!
Screenshot-33
HA!  Her hand!  ❤ Daisy

OKAY, so the romantic distraction over, it’s Nectar Making Time!
Screenshot-34
Daisy: *I picked these grapes*  DIE DIE DIE!

Screenshot-35
I’m just gonna sit her and contemplate my life NOT!  NECTAR TIME BABY!

Baby?  Nah, no babies… let’s go talk to our French Lover!
Screenshot-36
Daisy: baby? OMFG!
Gus:  LOVE!!!

Cue Sim Love Cuteness Scene:!!!             (Quiet Author’s Note: I just watched them be adorbs)

Daisy: FLOWERS TO THE THROAT!
Gus: KISS ME!
Screenshot-40
Gus: I like Daisy…
Patron: SERVICE PLEASE!
Screenshot-41Gus: OW MY ANKLE!
Daisy: Derp.
Screenshot-42
Daisy: I touch your face.
Screenshot-43
Gus: I touch YOUR face.
(How cute are they, Seriously?!?)
Screenshot-44
Daisy Whispers: *I love you*

And here, in the beautiful World Adventures of Champs le Sims, in the Nectary – does our Daisy?  Our Marguerite find love?
Screenshot-45

Who knows?!?  Cuz she’s home now…
Screenshot-46
(AUTHOR’S NOTE:  just like when the Zales went to China, I suffered game crashes, glitches, and FAILS ALL AROUND.  This time, was no different…  Cyrus vanished.  I mean VANISHED.  His square appeared, but he wasn’t in it… and the birthdays you’re about to see happen, had to happen twice…) IMPORTANT NOTE:  LEIF IS STILL ALIVE! He never even died in all the fail/crash games I played… THANKFULLY: I saved, over and over again… the end result?

Success!  And by that we mean ISBI Success!
Screenshot-47
Daisy can’t handle the ghosts: **FAINT**
Cyrus eats cake
Daphne is nonplused
Bettina and Abe haunt, and Abe heartfarts Cyrus, because their family tree is borked due to the Aurora Skies move.  Abe shows no relation to Cyrus.  Funny that Abe shows attraction to men… Explains all the running women?  Maybe?

Dear Leif (who I keep confusing with Changpu on their Sim panels…) decides to autonomously make drinks!  AW!  Then we get a pop up about his job performance – and well, he topped his career…
Screenshot-48

So it’s retire time!
Screenshot-49

Aw! FUN!
People Care
Screenshot-50
Like Changpu and his Retirement Yeti and the Maid.  Aw… (I’m sorry, Leif deserves better, but the ISBI is what it is…)

SO!  Sunset Valley has no bars or night life… I brilliantly decide to convert that mosquito place into a Dive Bar.  Awesome Simmer I am not, but this place RAWKS as a Dive Bar.  I’ve added bathroom stalls, a pool table, bad lighting, and seating for the Dive Drinkers… but I’ve gotten ahead of myself.
Screenshot-51
It’s Dane!  D’awww!
Screenshot-52
Daisy Moonlights all over the place…
Screenshot-53
(Bunch Old Lady Fairy DOES NOT LIKE) I DON’T CARE!
Screenshot-54
Merman: Drink?
Daisy: YES!
Screenshot-55
I GOT THIS!
Screenshot-56
SHAKEY SHAKEY!
Screenshot-57
BLEND!
Screenshot-58BEHIND THE BACK NINJA MANEUVER!
Screenshot-59
Here ya go!

Oh wait…
Screenshot-60
BAR CLOSED!

WHAT?  WE HATH A GNOME!
We have a gnome!

And, Not Julia is named with heartfelt love for Laserkatt and her Loki ISBI and general awesomeness… We lost our original gnome AmyWan when the Zales had to move…

BUT!  My game crashed, like six times, so this little gnome, doesn’t even exist in my game anymore… :’-(, but I DID catch it on camera!
Screenshot-61
Laser Kitty and Amy Kenobi of the Villainy, you exist in the Zale world – in my heart… cuz you both aren’t there anymore…  At least AmyWan got to “HARK!” Things…  Poor NotJulia was forced to look like a freaking Easter Creature on Drugs…  But I ❤ you both, and I’m sad you aren’t gnoming it up all over the Alphabetcy.  Let us weep.  (Well, I re-read this chapter, and the Juice Is Strong, in this Simmer…)  OH WELL!  Let’s MOVE ON!

Screenshot-62
Sam Sekemoto, the NAKED MOLE RAT, came home with Dahlia – and instantly became one with Daisy. Um.  Gross.  And the Oldie at the table?  That is Changpu, not Leif.  Who’s gonna die first?  Cuz *SPOILER* LEIF IS STILL ALIVE! FTW!

Is that Cyrus?
Screenshot-63
*Pukes in the plant*  “Whatever, you’re just happy I’m still visible”.  Yes.  yes I am Cyrus. STFU.

What?  Amidst all this chaos birthdays are still happening?!?  Why YES!
Screenshot-67
Daphne:  That cake.  I love that cake. ❤

Dahlia:  My cake is better than your cake…
Screenshot-68
Dahlia: IT IS NOT THE SAME CAKE!  STFU!
Daphne: ❤ Cake.

LIGHT THE CANDLES
YAY!
Screenshot-69
Only Changpu cares… oh what?  You thought that was Leif?  Me too… It isn’t…  It’s Changpu (Terrible Author’s Note: I call him Shampoo in my  head because I’m a bad person…)

Changpu:  YAY!  CLAPCLAPCLAP
Screenshot-71
Dahlia:  I rock this shit… (pre makeover)
Dahlia rolled Vegetarian to join excitable, workaholic, insane & never nude.  Now that’s a SIM!
NOTE!:  My game crashed as you probably read awhile ago – I had to replay this.  Dahlia rolled something else the second time around, but I corrected the game crash, and gave her Vegetarian again.
MAKEOVER:
Screenshot-80
There she is!  Aw… Well, I kick her out now… I didn’t even take pictures… Oh WELL!
(HAVE I MENTIONED LEIF IS STILL ALIVE!?! CUZ HE IS!)

And Daphne!
Screenshot-78The maid… she cares…
Daphne rolled loves the heat – but as previously mentioned the game crashed and Daphne had to age up again, and I reselected loves the heat… her makeover!
Screenshot-79
Daph is a bookworm, slob, friendly and heat loving sim.  I like her new booky look.   🙂

While Dahlia and Daphne aged, Cyrus and Changpu rocked choreographed party moves!
Screenshot-72
Screenshot-73
Screenshot-74
Screenshot-76
Screenshot-77
Daisy gives no fucks the entire time and reads her pregnancy book – per her wishes…

**Record Scratch** Pregnancy Book?!?

Why YES!  She’s Pregnant!
Screenshot-64
Is it Brandy’s?  Or is it Gustave’s?

Hey!  Like I stated above, I’m out of town for the next several days, so I hope you enjoyed Daisy’s adventures!  Come back next time to see what’s afoot in the Zale household!  Cheers!  And Happy Simming!

Daisy Days! 4.0

Well Hello There!  last time we hung out with the Zale family, I closed the heir poll!  Daisy beat out Dahlia 6 to 3, and the boys, well, they got goose eggs.  Bettina died :(, Leif topped his career further shaming Traci.  And I continued to hate Traci.  Changpu and Cyrus adopted a little girl we named Daphne, who they promptly shipped off to private school.  Man, Lots of stuff happened.  But I’m tired of recapping, so lets move on!

Knowing Daisy won, and will be the new TH, we scope out her high school sweetheart Brandy.
Screenshot
Um… no.  Sorry Brandy.  There’s more for Daisy than this!

Daisy:  OMG I’M SO HUNGRY!
Screenshot-2
THIS CAKE! NOM NOM DERP NOM!
Aw Daisy.  ❤

Then someone broke the dishwasher.  Fantastic.
Screenshot-3
That is an EXPENSIVE dishwasher, but it looks like good ol’ BRANDY broke it.  One of Cyrus’ last TH actions is to repair it.  And then do this really quick.  Cuz aw.  (And I’d locked it in.)
Screenshot-4
And on that parting note, with Changpu and Cyrus hugging amorously in Dahlia’s bedroom, we pass the torch to Daisy!

**HALT!  I totally forgot, we also had Cyrus place a VERY important phone call…

And what’s DAISY’S FIRST ACT AS TH?!?!
Screenshot-5
Pay bills.  What else?  Did you expect something exciting?

Wait?  Who’s this?  She’s derping a bit, but back by popular demand…
Screenshot-6
Daphne!  Hi honey!  (Cyrus phoned her home between hugging his husband and repairing the dishwasher.)

We got Daphne back from school, but she’d only learned how to club dance…
Club Dancing
Some art school.  For CHILDREN.  Gross.

Daph: Hey Dais?  Can you read me a story?  I’m ready for bed.
Daisy:  You got it toots!
Screenshot-7
Allow me to put on my very inappropriate attire for bedtime stories, and read you to sleep in MY bed…

-_-

(at least it’s a children’s book.)

With Daphne usurping her own bed, Daisy unceremoniously evicts dear old Leif, and steals his bed.
Screenshot-8
*Damn down wall…*

Hey look!  It’s Dane!  And he’s in his bedroom, that still appears fit for a child because I just didn’t care enough about him.  Or his brother… But he’s making a very important phone call!
Screenshot-9

Bye boys!  I loved neglected you!
Screenshot-10
Note:  Only seeing six Sims on the panel is weird.  Just sayin’.

Dahlia sighting!
Dahl:  Oh Sweet!  I’m starving!  Yesterday’s half eaten cake!
Screenshot-11

And after three bites of someone else’s old cake, it’s SLIDE TIME!
Screenshot-12
In FORMAL WEAR!  WEEEEEE!  (it’s okay, she’ll find a much finer time to wear her suit later)

Aw Leif!  Bless you and your ISBI Spouse Awesomeness!
Screenshot-13
Leif:  WEEEE!  I’m 103 days old!

Well!  Daisy has to master mixology, so we get started straight away!
Screenshot-14
Her face.  Lolz
Daisy: I love my bar ❤

Oh damn you graduation.
Screenshot-15

Off she goes!  Here’s some terribly and boring pictures of graduation:
Screenshot-16
But it’s Dane!  So I had to share!  And Mortimer.  And a woman in a red skirt.

And… Jack and Ethan Bunch!
Screenshot-17
Jack: Haters gonna hate (proceeds to twirl cane)
Note: I have never seen that before, I cracked up!!

Back to Daisy!  Cuz she matters and this damn graduation got in the way of things!
Screenshot-18
Daisy:  I am a rebellious badass, and I now have a motorcycle.

Daisy: Peace bitches
Screenshot-19
Cyrus: Daisy!  DAISY!  WAIT FOR THE FAMILY!  OMG YOUR GONNA KILL YOURSELF ON THAT THING!

They made it home okay…

Now, where were we:
Daisy was working on her mixology skill!  Cue Daisy Sequence of Awesomeness!
Screenshot-20
Screenshot-21
Screenshot-22
Screenshot-23
YAY!  I’m gonna… *CRASH*
Screenshot-24
Tada!  DRINKS!

Omg I love this.  Why have I never done this before.  And oh Daisy – she’s PERFECT for it!

Cyrus was trying to support his baby girl’s dreams, and sampled some of her wares.
Screenshot-25
Yeah – not so good.  HA!

Daisy:  What?  Don’t look at me all judgmental (turns back)…
Screenshot-26
Uh Dais?  It’s a little early…

But we love Daisy – so it’s okay.
And… not that we don’t all love Dahlia too, I mean, she got some votes!  But Dahlia!
Screenshot-27
Stahp!  You’re just a teen!  And it’s 6:05 on a THURSDAY – but way to find your swimsuit.  Good for you.

Dahlia:  I SEE YOU ARM!
Screenshot-29
You can’t GET ME!  I’m WATCHING!
NOOOOOOOO!
Screenshot-30
ARGHGGHH!

Here is the most insane face I’ve ever seen a Sim make.  Are you ready?  It’s intense.
Screenshot-31
Dahlia:  I eat souls

Daisy:  I make drinks
Screenshot-32
Ooh, steamy?  Fizzy?  Yellowy?  Stinky?  Whatever, something.  And Daisy looks pleased, if not a bit unaware of where her waist ends and how her wrist works…

Cute Daphne and her dad time!
Screenshot-34

OMG Leif!  Do NOT play in the sprinklers!  It’s 33 degrees F!  Freezing!
Screenshot-35
I’m so worried about him… I even made him Black/White on the header – but he’s still alive!

And Dahlia hung out at Naked Mole Rat’s house doing homework being a badass all night, and got caught by the police.
Screenshot-37

Ahoy!  Who’s this?
Screenshot-36
Is that, Brandy?  But I thought the Simmer said NO!

Yes, it’s Brandy.
Screenshot-38
SMOOCH!

Ugh Daisy – hurry up with this bad decision, he’s a total CREEPER (WRONG LEGACY)
Screenshot-39
VOMIT! His face makes me sick and kinda sad for Daisy – and YES, I know I’m CONTROLLING THIS – but I genuinely feel like this is something Daisy would do!

If you’re offended by this – skip the next few pics…
Screenshot-40
Screenshot-41
Screenshot-42

Daisy: Just between us wall – I think that was a mistake…
Screenshot-43
Even Brandy’s body is weird.  He’s like fat, but ripped?  How does that work.  He’s like a shemale who’s fatripped.  I don’t like him…

BUT!  What are high school sweethearts FOR, especially for a “rebellious” Sim, but adventure and mistakes!
But, I’m in control, so BYE BRANDY!
Screenshot-44
Daisy: Yeah, that was terrible.  I don’t like you.  And who wears a red V-neck sweater with octopus boxer briefs?  Begone fatripped shemale.

Brandy:  RAWR 😡
Screenshot-45
Ew, and his attitude is gross too.  Peace.

HEY!  It’s BETTINA!
Screenshot-47
HAI BETTINA!!!

Daisy:  Hey person on the phone? I’d like to plan a trip
Screenshot-46
I need to get away and live a little… France Please!

Bye Grandma!  I’m heading to France!
Screenshot-48

No one else was awake… so ghost Bettina plays video games while Daisy makes a trip!
Screenshot-49
Screenshot-50

Come back next time to enjoy Daisy’s adventures in Champs le Sims!  (I think)  In France!  I’m sure she’ll have a fine FINE time!  (Her first rolled wish was to buy a bottle of nectar.  Ha, my little bartender…)

See you soon!  And Happy Simming!

An Interesting Turn of Events 3.6

Hey Simmers!  Happy Weekend to you all!  We last left off with OH SO MUCH Happening!  Bettina and Leif continue to grace the household in their ripe ol’ age.  Cyrus and Traci FINALLY GOT A DIVORCE!  Cyrus embraced his true nature, and acquired a brand new husband, Changpu!  Dahlia became a teen, and an heir poll ensued!  IF YOU HAVEN’T VOTED, VOTE NOW.  I’M CLOSING THE POLL TOMORROW.  You can vote on the poll featured in the last post.  Daisy is currently leading 6 to 3 over Dahlia.  Both boys have no votes, which initially made me VERY HAPPY, until I met them as young adults, but I digress.  Let’s get on with the show, shall we?

So!  I think I mentioned a prom for the triplets last post, but well, Dahlia aged up too, and made it to prom too!  How’d it go?  Here’s a hint…

great prom
Looks like they’re having a blast, yes?  HA!.  However, some romantic interests came from it all.  Drake and Bella!  Kinda cute!  Sam Sekemoto and Dane.  I’m sorry, but Dane can do better.  You don’t know because you don’t really know him.  I didn’t give any of the triplets enough screen time or personality, but after the YA birthday they’ve had since, DANE CAN DO BETTER.  Just trust me.  And Daisy and Brandy Keaton…  Brandy… Male?  Female?   I checked Daisy’s relationship panel, but I honestly couldn’t tell. I thought I took a screen snip, but hmm.  I’m assuming female, because Brandy is a girls name…

Oh WAIT! (seriously, I’m typing this WAY LATER) I found the snip!
boy or girl
I found the snip!  Is that a boy or a girl?  I feel stupid that I don’t (didn’t) know.  MOVING ON…

Aw Drake.  Way to suck.  We have all seen enough broken fixtures in this house!
Screenshot-3

But check out this sweet family dinner!  I think the children really enjoy Changpu.  There’s never any bickering, or trait incompatible snafus.  I get a very happy vibe from the house now…

Screenshot
Besides Cyrus being sleepy (as a TH so often is) and Dahlia stepping over laundry, it’s a very happy scene!

See?
Screenshot-2
Family dinners are important!  And in an ISBI, prevents everyone from starving.  I LOVE the “call household to meal” option.  Changpu makes himself head of the table!

Hey!  It’s a snowy founder!
Screenshot-5
HAI ABE!!!!!!!!

He then proceeded to float through Dane and Drake’s bedrooms and disturb them… Great.
Screenshot-6
Where was he heading you ask?  THE COMPUTER!

Abe Zale misses video games VERY MUCH.  All he does when he comes a-haunting is play video/computer games.
Screenshot-8
Maybe because as a TH he had no personal time to himself?  I don’t know.  I’m always happy to see him, however!  Even though he woke up the boys…

And then!  BENJI!
Screenshot-10
Hi Kitteh!  Benji ALSO floated through both Drake and Dane’s bedrooms, disturbing Dane, who had gone back to sleep.  Thanks Benji…

But aw!
Screenshot-12
I like seeing them together!!

Over in the land of the living, it’s domestic bliss for Changpu and Cyrus…
Screenshot-13
Ha!  Fantastic…

And hey!  Abe!  Get outta the dining room table, Leif wants his CAKE!
Screenshot-14
Leif:  This looks like it hurts, but I am nonplused.

No really, he doesn’t give a shit.
Screenshot-15
Leif: La la la, I float and eat cake!  Just another day being a Zale!

By the time the ghosts vanish, I witness a Zale Family 2nd!
Screenshot-19
A Zale works out!  It’s Daisy!

And While Daisy feels the burn, Cyrus rolled a makeover wish, and how could we possibly deny our TH a mid-life crises wish?  We can’t!
Screenshot-16
(So that’s Bebe Hart standing RIGHT BEHIND Cyrus… and when Cyrus came in Bebe and the stylist were makin’ OUT.  HA HA!)
Cyrus: I’d like to keep my arms and legs, please.
Stylist:  Yes, like you see in the mirror?
-_-

I didn’t think he’d like it…
Screenshot-18
And **YAWN** he doesn’t.  But I think he looks fine!  Maybe years and years of seeing Sims show up in the most INSANE outfits… (FreeSpirit anyone?) that I’ve become complacent, and Cyrus just looks normal to me…

Back at home, I decide it’s time to check  up on Leif and Bettina, they’re very very old.  Bettina shows 98 Sim Days old, and has 189,545 LTH points.  Aw.  Leif is also 98, and has 115,047 LTH.  I think that’s DAMN FINE for an ISBI spouse… and wait until you see what he does later this post…  Anyway, the SECOND I finished checking on Bettina and writing her stuff down…
Screenshot-20
Bettina:  Damn.  I never reached my LTW.
Author’s Note:  We would have… If we didn’t have to leave Aurora Skies.

I’m so sparkly!  And a little bit scared!
Screenshot-21
Dad?  Is that you?

Cue sadness and family grieving.
Screenshot-22
Wait?  Where’s Leif?

Leif: La di da, a fine night for a game of catch, is it not, Dahlia?  Fine night indeed.
Screenshot-23
Dahlia:  Yes grandpa.  Fine to play out here in the snow and darkness.  Is something going on inside?

Leif: Nonsense dearie, nonsense…
Screenshot-24
LOOK!  You can SEE Leif playing catch out the window.  Isn’t that fantastic?  Do you see him?  I think it’s amazing.  Everyone else, they’re beside themselves.  I think Drake is even dislocating his elbow.  Aw.

So, we say goodbye to Bettina.  And she looks SO BADASS as a gypsy ghost!
Screenshot-26
I sure hope she haunts in her gypsy clothes!

After things (wait for it) DIE DOWN (HA HA HA) a bit, Daisy remembers she’s a coward.  HA!  I’m going to have to get used to her.
Screenshot-27
Daisy:  Oh the simanity!  I’m going down!  GRANDMA!!

Bye Bettina.  We’ll miss you.
CYRUS TO THE RESCUE WITH THE MOODLET MANAGER!
Screenshot-28
He quickly zaps everyone.  And since the youngest is Dahlia, and she’s a teen, we were able to pretend we didn’t even care about Bettina… Hmm.

BUT WAIT!  Does anyone recall?  I said that if Bettina or Leif died before Changpu became an edler… that we’d…
adoption
ADOPT!  We picked a female CHILD.  I’ve never adopted older than a toddler before, so I didn’t know what would happen.  But we got to name her!

Meet Daphne!
Screenshot-30
Um… is that a helmet?

Oh!  She’s a super special child who needs to wear a helmet all the time to protect herself!
Screenshot-31
Look how happy she is!

Okay – so I took away the helmet.  If I were a better simmer, well, I’d roll with the special needs appearance and write it in, but well – I just wasn’t shooting for that right now.  And in all honesty, it’s just “hair”… SO!  one quick makeover later, MEET DAPHNE ZALE!

Screenshot-32
She’s a friendly, slovenly, bookworm.  She likes rockabilly music, fire cracker tofu, and spice brown!  Isn’t she amazing?  I think she’s amazing.  And if I’d been known for sure that either Leif or Bettina would have died so quickly, and that I could adopt a child aged child, I would have made her eligible for heir.  Definitely!  I peeked at her as a teen, YA, and adult, and she’s SPECATULAR.  Unfortunately, we won’t really get to see her much…  You’ll see why.

Here’s her room!  Since Changpu had never even BEEN KISSED (seriously, he got his first kiss moodlet with Cyrus, and he’s THREE DAYS from ELDER) I imagined that he was overwhelmed with love and devotion to his adopted daughter, and so they SPOIL her.
Screenshot-33

Daphne:  This dollhouse…
Screenshot-34
It’s like the house I always imagined… and now I have a home.  *sniffle*

(I have no idea why the dollhouse made her cry…)  😦
Cyrus rolled this:
art school
And I decided to comply – so we barely get to enjoy Daphne before she heads off to private school.  I’m hoping she’ll call us and ask to come home!

Since I knew she was leaving, here she is being cute as hell…
Screenshot-37
I freaking love her.

While Daphne plays pretty princess, 100 year old Leif decides the best place to sleep…
Screenshot-39

Is an igloo…
Screenshot-40
I’m watching him like a hawk… I know he’ll be dying soon!

Daisy is leading the heir poll race, so I thought people should get to know her better!  Here she is!
Daisy: I HATE YOU SNOWMAN!  YOU ARE NOT WORTHY TO WATCH OVER OUR ANCESTORS!
Screenshot-41

Elbow to the SnowFace!
Screenshot-42

Oh.  Oh no.  Did I just kill a snowman?!?
MUST FIX!
Screenshot-43

I’m sorry snowman!  I love you and the stuff that makes you!  Nom Nom!
Screenshot-44

Leif remerges unscathed!
Screenshot-45
He stood their frozen/idle for awhile, and I thought he might be dying.  He was fine.

And with that, BYE DAPHNE!
Screenshot-46
Have fun at French Cheese Art School!  We barely knew you!  </3

Daisy – again, leading the TH race – I felt you needed to know her a little bit more… She decided to set a booby trap!
Screenshot-47
heheheheheheh

And then!  She shows magic powers and shoves her own arm in to her body…
Screenshot-48
THAT FACE!!!! XD
Daisy: mmmmmm, waffle remnants ……….

Like I said, I’ve been obsessively checking on over 100 Sim day Leif…
Screenshot-49
He’s fine… fast asleep.  And look!  The Koi out his window!  Awesome!  Normally I’d make some funny comment about the handcuffs dream, but Leif is in the law enforcement career track, so it just makes sense… weird.

I keep forgetting that Daisy is a coward!
Screenshot-50
It’s just Benji!  She was drawn to the giant fish on the TV.  Oh Daisy.  Your rebellious nature doesn’t suit your coward trait AT ALL.  But I love it.  I do.

So.  Maybe you all wondered why I hated Traci so much.  I can’t REALLY explain it… I had to watch her do all her little Sim things, and I just hated her all the time.  But here…is PROOF of her extra special FAILURE!
leif international superspy
Yup!  That’s LEIF.  Uncontrollable ISBI SPOUSE, topping his career.  You, Traci.  YOU WERE DEMOTED TO PAPERGIRL.  You couldn’t make it out of level TWO of the journalism career.  Leif topped his career path!  I just wish it had been his LTW.  His LTW is renaissance sim, which he won’t make, but I don’t care.  He’s the best.  Ever.  The proof is in the pudding.

So Hey!  Look!  There’s people swarming the Zale door!  It’s a birthday.  It’s many birthdays.
But who do we have here?
Screenshot-51
Hey!  It’s Brandy.  And he’s a BOY!  Alright then!  I honestly had no idea, but I should’ve recognized the shirt, but I didn’t.  Brandy – is a boy.  Daisy’s Romantic Interest is male.

And look! It’s Bella! (*snickers* – you’ll see, oh readers, you’ll see)
Screenshot-52
I think I might be the ONLY SIMMER who adores Bella, but when I discovered that Bella was Drake’s Romantic Interest, I was pretty happy!

And oh LOOK, it’s FUCKING TRACI – and what did she bring?  AUTUMN SALAD.  Cuz ya know, it’s not ANY SIM EVER can make AUTUMN SALAD.  Loser.  I hate you so much.  At least bring steamed vegetables or SOMETHING.
Screenshot-53
Traci:  I miss these walls.  I always loved you wall.

Author’s Note:  I had absolutely zero dealings with what you are about to witness.  I exclaimed out loud when I saw it, and my husband asked me if something was wrong.  I think my exact words were “Well!  What’s this shit!?!”

So!  It’s a party!  And I heard kissing…
Screenshot-54
That is Traci.  And Bella.  Smooching up a STORM!

You can’t write this stuff, I’m telling you.  Cyrus ditched Traci, then found love with an older man, Traci, once tossed to the curb, found love with a MUCH younger woman!  I mean Bella is her SON’S romantic interest!  Bella was at PROM with Drake!  MUHAHAHAHA!  I am indeed, surrounded by idiots.   And entertained to PIECES when I saw this happen.  Seriously.  DAMN!

Moving on, this IS a birthday party!

Such a hodgepodge of Sims.  A Keaton Vampire crashes, Brandy is all up in Drake’s Biz,
Screenshot-55
And Sam Sekemoto, who is DANE’S romantic interest (seriously, he can do so much better… You’ll see) is busy being a pink baldy.  He’s like a naked mole rat, ugh.  Dane, I never really appreciated you, but you can do better than Sam Sekemoto.  Just sayin’.

Triplets in sync!
Screenshot-56

Screenshot-57

Drake goes first!
Screenshot-58
Before makeover, I think he looks pretty good!  I like him more than I thought I would (which is what I always say… but that’s okay, I’m a compassionate simmer except Traci)

Then Dane!
Screenshot-59
I think he’s hawt.  LOL!  I DO!  I’m SORRY! (kinda.  I paid him no mind until he got all hawt)

Daisy!
Screenshot-63

HA HA HA H AH AH HAHAHAHAHAHHHAHA!
Screenshot-64
THE HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  LOLZ

Changpu went too!
Screenshot-61
He always seems so dignified to me…
Screenshot-62
He’s also a very graceful elder.  He looks pretty happy!  He did get a makeover, but I didn’t bother with a shot.  Here’s the triplets after their makeovers!  You’ll also learn their new trait and their LTW!

Drake!
Screenshot-68
He had clumsy LOCKED in.  World renowned surgeon was available, and since a clumsy surgeon made me LOL, and aside from him MOPPING HIS TEENAGE YEARS AWAY I had absolutely no attachment to him – it seemed fine.  I did try to pick a look befitting a clumsy doctor wannabe.  So there you have it.

Dane!
Screenshot-66
Dane rolled couch potato.  We selected Blog Artist for his LTW, since it just SUITED him.  He’s got that lazy, entitled vibe about him, that just made me love him.  And I think he’s hot, but I said that already.  I’m sorry I didn’t pay enough attention to him.

Daisy!
Screenshot-67
Since she’s probably going to be the TH, I paid a lot of attention to her traits and personality, and I went for a rebellious, sexy, but kind look for her.  She’s also a slob, so I wanted her clothes to appear low maintenance, but she’s part of my flower theme, so she wears them in her hair… She rolled Dog Person.  Her LTW is to be a master mixologist, and I picked it for a couple reasons.  One, it TOTALLY suits our Daisy, and two, I’ve never done it before!  And!  YAY DOGS!  (I’m a professional dog trainer {as in I get paid to train other people’s dogs} and I have two of my own!  SO YAY DOGS!)

Oh… Well that’s the last screen shot, but it’s as good a time to end as any!  The next generation are young adults, so by the time I post tomorrow, I’ll have closed down the heir poll, and we’ll have a new beginning!  At this very moment, the score is:
Daisy 6, Dahlia 3, and the boys zero.  I did want to go boy/girl/boy/girl, so I’m happy the girls are winning!  I had no idea Dane would turn out so badass.  Just sayin’.

Come back next time!  The TH will be decided, and I bet the torch gets passed!  Cyrus has NO HOPE of reaching his LTW, as he’s only level 5 science.  He might max his career, but it’s unlikely.  Hmm, remind me to unlock the garden gate so other sims can get in there.  Out of all of my Torch Holder’s to date, only Abe reached his LTW.  That is PRETTY sad.  Oh well, I’m having a blast!  And free interwebs to you if you found this even remotely as enjoyable as I do.  Cheers!  And HAPPY SIMMING!

Cyrus Begay & Heir Poll! 3.5

Hi Simmers!  Last time a WHOLE ton of stuff happened.  The adults went on a free vacation, the teens threw a party and BROKE EVERYTHING, Benji died :(, Traci was the most obnoxious Sim I’ve ever experienced, Cyrus had an adult birthday and well, here we go!

GENERATION B JUICE PONG!
Screenshot

CHUG CHUG CHUG CHUG
Screenshot-2

Bettina and Traci had a “moment” last time in the kitchen, and it was commented upon that Bettina is now gangsta.  She is indeed gangsta.  BAM!
Screenshot-3

GO BETTINA!  We ALL hate Traci!
Look at the hate.
Screenshot-4

Note:  Bettina and Leif are 96 Sim days old.  Bettina has 183,650 LTH and Leif 108,293.  As an ISBI spouse, I found that number quite pleasing.  You go Leif!

Cyrus got promoted!  And being  a workaholic, is VERY pleased with himself.
Screenshot-5
FYI:  Drake and Dane are there because they were on a field trip.  Aw.  Cute.

While Cyrus succeeds, TRACI FAILS!
Traci is a loser
Really?  She couldn’t even make it out of the second position?  Leif is an uncontrollable spouse, and he’s been promoted MANY times.  Traci is a COMPLETE disaster, and we hate her.  She’s now been promoted to “Paper Girl” which a CHILD can do.  Way to shine, Trace.  Way to shine.

I promised Cyrus an adult makeover, here’s his outfit!
Screenshot-6

I also promised him the TH Tattoo of Honor.  The Gnome of the Wrist!
Screenshot-7
Aw, cute.  And hairy!

When coming out of the salon after his tattoo, this tourist was standing around!
Screenshot-8
Aw, China!  The Zales went there!

They have A LOT in common!
Screenshot-9

His name is Changpu!  Changpu Sau Hing!
Screenshot-10
Aw… Bros!  Brohoof!

And poor Dahlia… she just misses Benji so much!
Screenshot-11
Don’t mind me… I’m an 8 year old with an iPhone.  OMG BENJI I MISS YOU!

All the time!
Screenshot-12
I’m sorry honey.  The moodlet manager cannot save you.  You’re forced to mourn Benji.

And only HORRIBLE TRACI would be mean to a CHILD who was devastated over her lost kitteh.
Screenshot-13

Cyrus rolls this:
holly flirt
It’s not the divorce Traci wish we were all looking for, but it’s a start.  Holly is a co-worker, and since I want Cyrus to divorce Traci be happy, we promptly invite her over.

Screenshot-14
She’s cute too.

Adult Paper Girl Traci doesn’t think so.  MUHAHAHAHHA
Screenshot-15
Aw… Poor you.  You mad?  STFU

Then I got this pop up about Dahlia!
dahlia no
OH NO!
I found her stuck on a playground.  I had to reset her.  Poor baby.

It’s DAHLIA’S BIRTHDAY!
Screenshot-16
WOO HOO!  FUN TIMES!

I wish…
Screenshot-17
I wish I DON’T GROW UP WITH ZALE HAIR CURSE!

It comes true!
Screenshot-18
Not a bad grow up, if I do say so!  Best we’ve seen in a long time!  She rolled Nevernude.

HEIR POLL
HERE HERE READERS!  You now get to control the future of the Zale Idiot Clan!  To recap:
Dahlia!Screenshot-22
She is a Nevernude, Workaholic, Insane, Excitable Sim who loves Disco, Goopy Carbonara, and the color LIME.

Drake
Screenshot-19
He is a Friendly, Good, Workaholic, Cold Loving, Easily Impressed Sim who enjoys Soul, Cheese Tofu Steak, and Irish Green.

Dane
Screenshot-20
He is a Friendly, Good, Light Sleeping, Over Emotional Sim who likes Country, Stu Surprise, and Yellow.

Daisy
Screenshot-23
She is a Cowardly, Grumpy, Rebellious Slob who favors Chinese Music, Stir Fry, and Lilac.

Choose Wisely.  With great power comes great responsibility… Or some shit.

HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PRAISE THE LLAMA!
DIVORCE!
IT HATH HAPPENED!

We warm up to the divorce by arguing real quick…
Screenshot-24
I mean, it COULDN’T just come out of the blue, could it!?

BEGONE TRACI!
Screenshot-25
GO CYRUS!  WOO HOO!!!

Well, shit.  This was sad…
well this sucks
OH WELL.  SHOO!

I have a cell phone, but I’m going to use the house phone to move out…
Screenshot-26

BYE!
Screenshot-27

I’d say we’ll never see here again, but she’s like, the ONLY family member we could invite to parties, so I’m sure she’ll come around.  And we’ll all enjoy laughing at how much we hate her.  PEACE!

Well well… what do we have here?
Screenshot-28
HA!  You thought it’d be exciting.  Nah, it’s Cyrus in his make-over undies and his honorary degree.

And Bettina, well, she keeps with tradition.
Screenshot-29
Angelica, I’m thinking of you.

Hmm, a visitor!
Screenshot-30
Is that?… Could that be?…Is he from out of town?

Why yes!  I do believe Cyrus has invited his Bro Changpu from China to come visit!
Screenshot-31
That’s cool.  Ya know, you need your homies when going through a divorce!

FLASH!
GOOD!
WHATEVER!  We’re HAPPY SHE’S GONE!

Cyrus:  Hi Changpu!  Please, come inside!
Screenshot-32
*Cyrus strips instantly* (Seriously, he did it all on his own!)
Changpu looks confused.  LOL

Cyrus: Hey Bro!  Do you know your star sign?  I’d like to know it too!  For Bro reasons.
Screenshot-33
Changpu: I’m strangely attracted to this skinny, hairy man.

Cyrus: You’re a Pisces?  OMG!  I rolled a wish to meet a Sim with a compatible sign, and you ARE!  Let us BroHug!
Screenshot-34
Changpu:  Hugz.

Cyrus:  Wait.  I think I feel extra feelings for you.  Feelings I never felt in all my life.  All my married life.  With  my wife.  And our four kids.  Changpu, I’m attracted to you!
Screenshot-35
Changpu:  Me too!  I’m attracted to you!  I’ve lived my whole life in China with just my parents.  I had no friends, no colleagues… I was so lonely.  I isolated myself.  But with you, I feel joy!  And happiness!  And I thi—-…. SMOOCH!
Screenshot-36
Cyrus:  Shhh, Changpu.  I understand.

Let us heal our broken hearts with the love we fought our whole lives.
Screenshot-37
SMOOCHIE

Cyrus:  So, wanna go steady?
Screenshot-38
Changpu: What are you, 15?

BUT OKAY!
Screenshot-39
Great!  You’re My BOYFRIEND!  I’m SO HAPPY!

So… How about fiancé?
Screenshot-40
Wait wait wait… I’m sure I have a Traci’s old wedding ring around here somewhere!

Eh?  eh?
Screenshot-41

RING!
Screenshot-42

Changpu: OMGYESYESYES
Screenshot-43
Cyrus!  GREAT!  Let’s get married.

Changpu:  Now?
Cyrus:  NOW.
Screenshot-44
Aw!  Look at Cyrus!  I’ve never seen him look so intoxicated happy!

So!  With that!!  Meet Changpu Zale (OMG A C!  Like Angelica and Abe!  Changpu and Cyrus!)
Screenshot-45
Changpu Zale is 3 days away from elder.  His LTW is to be a master magician, but he is unemployed.  It’s like if I wanted to be an award winning author but I Sim blog and waste away in a cube… ANYHOO MOVING ON… he only knew two people from China.  His parents.  Aw.  He was just waiting for a man to save him.  D’aaww.  He likes Latin music, Crepes, and the color purple.  He’s a Light Sleeping, Athletic, Excitable, Loser, who happens to be Lucky just once in awhile.  Like visiting Sunset Valley, and touring the town when Cyrus went for a tattoo.

That’s all I have for this post!  PLEASE vote for heir!  Also, if Bettina or Leif die within the next couple Sim days, Changpu and Cyrus will adopt.  The child will not be eligible for heir race, but NOT because she is adopted, but because there’s just too much of an age gap, and I’ll be ready to move on with the family.  AUTHORS NOTE:  Adoption will ALWAYS be allowed to continue the Zale Family legacy.  I am an adopted child, and I am no less worthy to carry on my family name than if my parents had had any biological children.  The same rule is applying to my Sims.  Adopted children will be just as eligible to continue the Zale line.

Ahem – VOTE VOTE VOTE!  And come back soon to see what’s next!  Things are pretty exciting in the Zale house these days!

Happy Simming!

OH SHIT:  And a special thanks to Amywan for inspiring the Zale Family with her Cyrus Begay Zombie on the de Vil Villain Legacy, and SERIOUSLY to my dear friend Julia laserkatt.  Read her amazing adventure with Loki over here.  Do it.  Now.  CLICK THEM BOTH NOW!

 

Everything Breaks, Bye Bye Benji 3.4

Hi Simmers!  In the past, on Sundays, I have posted twice!  Wow!  But today, well – you get a Megapost.  There are over 100 pictures in this post, and it starts slow, but oh so much happens! Not really.  Last time, Cyrus finally had a break from skilling the triplets, Traci was obnoxious, and Dahlia aged into a toddler, and the triplets became children!  Get to reading to see what happens now!  MEGAPOST!

We begin with Cyrus and Dahlia being too much cute!  Dawww.
Screenshot

And I’m a terrible, terrible Simmer.  I kept confusing Drake and Dane, and I couldn’t really figure out why, I mean, they look different… Then I discovered that I gave the wrong boy the wrong favorite color, adding to my confusion.  Anyhoo.

Drake tells a scary story!
Screenshot-2
Permanent Pajamas Traci watches.  And Dane – well… he thinks it’s a bit TOO scary…
Screenshot-3
…fail.  And weeing Sim Dane’s favorite color is actually yellow, and Drake is Irish green.  I have since corrected it.

Drake then gets invited over to Sam Sekemoto’s house.  He’s a very VERY weird looking child with no hair.  I thought I took a picture of him.  Oh well, so here they are, hanging out being awesome friends.
Screenshot-8
Drake (still in the wrong color) doing his homework.

Sam… also doing his homework
Screenshot-9
Three stories away from his “friend”.  Awesome.  Look how bald he is!  HA HA HA!

Cute Grandma Bettina is cute:
Screenshot-10
I had since fixed their colors, so this is Drake!  Aw.

Bettina & Permanent Pajamas Traci BEER JUICE PONG!

No one drank.  So no one won.  😀

HOLY CRAP BIRTHDAYS!  This is another Epic Quad Birthday

Dahlia Cake!

Drake cake!  Look at all the people!  Bald Sam!

WOOHOO BIRTHDAY!  (longhaired boy in the green coat?  Drake)

GO DAISY!  FANTASTIC PARTY!  (HA HA BALD SAM)

DAISY!  THAT ZALE HAIR!
Screenshot-14
Gross.

EPIC BIRTHDAY!!!!
Screenshot-15
Look at all da peeps!  Zales are so popular!  (not really – they’re all strangers…)

Hey!  It’s Dahlia!
Screenshot-16
Dahlia rolled Workaholic.  This joins excitable and insane.  I gave her glasses like her daddy, who is ALSO a workaholic, he got to add a new trait because I’m sure he did something like charisma… I don’t know.
Woman’s hand and plate become UFO.

Here she is up close!
Screenshot-23
Aw… Cute Crazy Girl.

The triplets age up too!
DRAKE!
Screenshot-18
Aw… he’s cute!
Up close!
Screenshot-24
I’m sure he looks good – but he has weird eyes.  With like, tons of eyelid weirdness.
He rolled mooch to join, loves the cold, good, and workaholic.  Apparently the theme for this generation.

DAISY!
Screenshot-19
Daisy’s up close photo!  After makeover.  She’s a rebellious slob, who rolled coward to go with just being grumpy.  I thought she’d rock rebellious and slob, so I picked THIS look for her:
Screenshot-31
BAM!  DAISY!

And don’t forget DANE!
Screenshot-20
Aw, he’s very handsome – from here…
Up close, he has the same weird deep set eyes, with tons of funky eyelid.
Screenshot-25
I’m not sure you can see it… but it’s gross.  He rolled lucky, to join friendly, over emotional, and light sleeper.  So yeah, teenage triplets!  YAY!

Traci has a birthday too.  I do not care.  Oh look, she broke her leg.
Screenshot-21
Good.
OH GOD, the Zale Hair Curse!
Screenshot-22
Cute Dahlia In Horrible Clothes I Have Since Fixed:  WOOHOO GO MOM!
I hate that hair.  I hate Traci.  She can keep it.

Permanent Pajamas Traci: I am disgusted.
Screenshot-27
No one cares.  No one likes you.  SPOILER: Cyrus has also birthday’d up.  If he rolls a wish to divorce her, I will comply.

Aw, sibling cuteness… Dane and Dahlia
Screenshot-32

The triplets autonomously sat themselves here.  Since I forced the first triplet couch shot, I thought this was important.  -_-
Screenshot-33
TRIPLETS!

A wild vacation notification appears!  We accept!
vacation
But wait, this is an ISBI, I’m just going to have to WATCH what happens while the adults are gone… Should be fun?

This pops up!
i clicked throw party
I clicked “throw party”  Should be rockin’… o.O

Before any party guests could arrive, the one piece of entertainment broke.
Screenshot-34
DANE: OMG, THE PARTY IS GOING TO SUCK!
Screenshot-35
Guaranteed… but you’ll see for yourselves…

Then Drake – he broke the dishwasher…
Screenshot-36

… And the sink…
Screenshot-37

And Dane?  He broke this shower…
Screenshot-41
Great, IDIOTS… you have a party starting soon!
Author’s note: I bought a stereo.  So the kids would have SOMETHING to do at this party.  I hate SimStereos.

Daisy: Don’t look at me, I’m not breaking things.  I’m doing my homework.
Screenshot-42
AND IT’S HARD!
Screenshot-43
AND OMG STUFF IS BROKEN!!!
Screenshot-44
Ironically, I think she looks like Cruella de Vil here!
She scares me…
Screenshot-45

Drake: Moppy moppy moppy!  I am mopping like a good boy!
Screenshot-46
Yeah, good luck with that Drake.  Between the sink and the dishwasher, your task is never ending.

PING PONG BREAK!
Screenshot-47

Dahlia:  Dad?  Dad? I think I … oh wait… dad’s not here…
Screenshot-48
I broke the toilet… to join the dishwasher and the kitchen sink.

Oh… then I broke this sink too.
Screenshot-49
*pretty hot air balloon is pretty*
(recap:  the TV, the kitchen sink, the dishwasher, this toilet, and this sink are now broken.)
Remember, Cyrus is on “vacation” so stuff just gets to be broken.  HA HA HA, It’s funny!!

A party guest arrives!
Screenshot-50Cora Francisco: That TV, It’s broken.
Yes, Cora, it is.  How astute of you.

Then Sandi French!
Screenshot-51
OMG, AM I LATE!  RUNS!

Then they actually socialized!  I was surprised.  Good thing I bought the stereo!
Screenshot-52
Cora: Do I hear a waterfall?
Drake and Sandi: So romantic!  Let us dance to the waterfall!
Screenshot-53

Additional party guests arrive, and these faces need no introduction, but!
Screenshot-54
Arlo Bunch!  (Daisy close-up:  Dem eyez!)

And Lisa Bunch
Screenshot-55
I think she’s kinda cute, but those Bunch genetics are something else!

Daisy: WTH Cora, you’re not a TEEN.  What’d you do?  Have a birthday on the way over!
Screenshot-56
Drake: GAG!  The puddles!  THE PUDDLES!!
Arlo: Sandi
Sandi: Broken

Drake:  I just wanted to wash my hands…
Screenshot-57
Well, you broke it.  Great.  Way to go you.

Dane & Lisa, groovin’ to the sounds of broken TV static…
Screenshot-58

Cora, I swear… if you break that…
Screenshot-59
You shouldn’t even be here YOUNG ADULT.

The party amongst all the broken things actually looks like fun!
Screenshot-60

Then a fashionably late Darlene Bunch shows up…
Screenshot-61
String bean contemplates…
OMG!
Screenshot-62
SO MANY BROKEN THINGS (you have no idea Darlene.  No idea at all… -_-)

Cora:  Hey, your computer?  I think someone broke it.
Screenshot-63
Couldn’t’ve been me… nah…

Drake: MOPPY MOPPY MOPPY!
Screenshot-64

Screenshot-66

Zale parties RAWK!
Screenshot-68
Plop in the flooding.  Plop my pretties.  (OMG SUCH LOSERS!)

Daisy:  Wut.  I just took a shower…
Screenshot-69
Aaaaannnd… It’s broken.

ARLO!  Leave the koi alone!
Screenshot-70
That is a landscaping POND… with PETS… they are NOT for catching!

Um… Abe?  Now’s REALLY not the best time to see your house…
Screenshot-71

No really…
Screenshot-72
Arlo: I just wanted to wash the koi guts off my hands!  It just BROKE.

Dahlia:  I’m going to use one of the few working sinks to clean up because I’m a good girl.
Screenshot-73

Ooops.
Screenshot-74
-_- WHAT IS GOING ON!

Ugly Bunch Girl: I just wanted to wash away the pain!
Screenshot-75
Whelp, that one’s broken too.

Author’s Note:  Seriously?  WHAT IN THE HELL IS HAPPENING!

Dane:  I DON’T KNOW!  YOU TELL ME!
Screenshot-76
MY ARM IS GROWING OUT OF MY CHEST! (But at least my room is yellow now… YAY!)

Priorities… ya know… weird arm growth is secondary to my finally acknowledging their favorite colors correctly.

Drake:  Uh… I broke the shower.
Screenshot-77
HELL WHY NOT!  IT MATCHES THE SINK YOU FUCKING IDIOTS.
(seriously?  What is going ON!?!?!?)

Screenshot-79
MOPPY MOPPY MOPPY!  I AM DRAKE I MOP FOREVER.

Dahlia: F— the broken ass house.  I’m playing outside.
Screenshot-80

Drake:  Dearest Dahlia.  You are our only hope.  You must learn handiness to protect us from that which is *DU DU DUUUUUUUH* BROKEN HOUSE
Screenshot-82
Dahlia: But I’m SO TIRED!  And this is NOT my bed…

CHILDREN OF THE BROKEN HOUSE.  FLEE  FLEE!

Benji segue:
Screenshot-85
She’s damn adorable and her lifebar is full, and I’m worried about her.

ADULTS RETURN TO RUINS!  THE WATER DAMANGE, THE MOLD, SINKING FOUNDATION AND HIGH WATER BILL
Screenshot-87
Cyrus: Broken TV.
Bettina: OMFG WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE HOUSE
Leif:  Benji!  Lookin’ GOOD!
Traci: The dishwasher appears to be brok–Shut up, no one likes you.

Cue ongoing never ending Cyrus repair sequence:
Wait, an author’s note is required.  Cyrus had like, sixty billion LTH points (no, I do NOT exaggerate, why do you ask?) so I bought him an honorary degree.  In science.  I then moved his job over to the science career track – so now he needs handiness.  Which is GREAT, since the HOUSE IS IN SHAMBLES.
Cue ongoing never ending Cyrus repair sequence!

Forgive the down walls, she died in the hall.

Bye Benji.  You were super amazing and fantastic, and you saved Abraham once, and you never had a tail, but you were purrfect in every way.  The house will miss you.  I will miss you.

Traci: WAH!  POOR WALL, I ALWAYS LOVED YOU WALL!

STFU TRACI!  NO ONE LIKES YOU!

I’m sorry Cyrus…

… You can fix all the house, but not a broken heart…

…Oh wait, yes you can. MOODLET MANAGER TO THE RESCUE!

…But you can’t fix poor Dahlia.  She’s forced to cry forever…

:’-(
Screenshot-100
I’m so sorry Dahlia.  You remind me of Celine when Abe died.  Standing right by the wall by the front door…

Goodbye Benji.  You are the epitome of all that could be good in an ISBI cat.  You were always happy, and adorable, never any trouble.  May you rest happily with Abe and Angelica.
Screenshot-102

*BACKTRACK*  Cyrus went and had a birthday while attempting to repair the TV and watch Benji die.
Screenshot-112
Happy adult birthday Starving Cyrus.  It was completely ruined by a flooding house and a dying kitteh.  I promise you an adult make over, and Gnome of the Wrist upon next play session.  And if you roll a midlife crisis wish to divorce STUPID TRACI, I promise that too.

I hope you made it through MEGAPOST 2013!  Come back soon, I’m sure there’s going to be a prom, cuz ya know, teenagers… and Cyrus WILL get that tattoo.  And will he roll a wish to divorce Traci?  Your guess is as good as mine!  Happy Simming!

Tripletpalooza! 3.3

Hi!  Zales were being Zales and doing Zale things… Triplets aged into toddlers, and Cyrus was skilling and skilling and almost dying all the time.  Let’s see what happens next, shall we?

Run Cyrus, Run!

Cyrus had a carpool to catch, but I can only imagine how grateful he was to leave the chaos of his parents, his wife, and his four children.  Flee Cyrus, FLEE!

The maid showed up, and her disgust was obvious.

Kate Pistachio: WHAT DO THEY FEED THESE CHILDREN!

And my little Zale Idiots had a rough day…
Bad Day
Only Betts was doing okay – which was good since she was at work trying to earn her LTW.  Not likely to happen, but I digress.

DAMN!  I missed another birthday… I’m sure you’re all shocked disappointed.

But this one is quite dapper!
Benji: Are you a ghost?
Zombie: Me.

Leif, Leif, Leif…

Leif: I was so tired, but so hungry.  Torn between desires I… I…
Screenshot-11…FAIL!

Benji and Cyrus retreat from the chaos in the man cave.

Cyrus: No one understand me but you, Benji.

Cyrus: I’m SO HUNGRY!
Screenshot-17
Mmm Beer a Cold One.

So what?  It’s 6am on a Saturday morning.  Do you understand Cyrus’ life?  Don’t judge.
Screenshot-19
Quietly slurping away the pain.

HAUNTING!  Abe and Angelica!  On a lovely, lovely, zombie infested night!
Screenshot-14

Angelica: Abe?  Honey?  Love?  Are you just going to leave me here?  Someone is coming.  Someone “undead”
Screenshot-15
Abe: You’re undead honey.
Angelica: Abe?  It’s still coming… Abe?
Abe: *happily floats away*

I hear the sound of a breaking appliance.
Hark!  It’s Permanent Pajamas Traci!
Screenshot-20
Traci: NOOOO Not the socks!  Not my precious socks!  They’re all wet!

HOUSE FULL OF PEOPLE AND TABLE FULL OF CAKES = BIRTHDAYS
Screenshot-21

Daisy goes first!
Screenshot-22
Benji: PAR-TAY!
Toddler Dahlia: I’m coming for you kitteh.  I see you.  Oh yes.

Screenshot-23

EVERYONE: OMG CAKE GET OUTTA MY WAY
Screenshot-25
Maid: I gots my cake.
Cake is magical.  People become one.

See Pink Vest Lady up there?  She put down a book to eat cake.  One does not put down objects in the Zale Legacy.  I stole it.
Screenshot-26
“Physically Fit to be Tied” has joined the family inventory.  *YOINK*

Then Dane!
Screenshot-27
Aw, Cyrus is the happy.

Screenshot-28
Cyrus & Dane spit germs all over the cake *pffffffft*

Last but not least!  Drake!
Screenshot-29
PVL: Has anyone seen my book?
NO!

Derp!Screenshot-30

Tingly!
Screenshot-32

HERE YOU HAVE THE ZALE TRIPLETS!
Screenshot-33
Daisy, who rolled Rebellious to go with grumpy and slob.
Drake, who rolled Over-Emotional to go with friendly and light sleeper.
And Dane, who rolled Workaholic to go with loves the cold and good.
(Yes, I told them all to sit.  Doesn’t count.)

Then I saw Bettina and Traci in what I thought was a “flirting” position.
Screenshot-35
Which upon closer inspection might’ve been a FIGHTING position.  Uh ladies?  Personal space?  Take it outside?  It’s a children’s party for heaven’s sake!

And then this lady.  This LADY.  LOL!
Screenshot-36
She was NOT this fat when she arrived.  Three cakes will do that to you I guess.
Suddenly Fat Lady: You gonna eat that cake?
No.  Have at it.

The newly aged triplets needed more appropriate rooms.  So here ya go!
Daisy’s space

Dane’s place

Drake’s populace (So sue me.  I ran out of “ace” words that worked)
Screenshot-39
(Yes, I sent them all to bed.  Doesn’t count.)

So here is where I leave you!  Cyrus is busy sciencing.  Yes.  It’s a word.  Verb.  The act of making science.  Sciencing.  Look it up.

Come back next time for more fun-filled adventures featuring your very favorite Zale clan!
I hope you enjoy the new menu and page layout.  Happy Simming!

Three Babies and a Man 3.2

Hey Hey Kids!  What’s new out there, eh?  We left off with the Zales moving all over tarnation, finally settling in Sunset Valley, and there were triplets!  Yay!  Cyrus has an LTW that I’ve never attempted before, it’s that sciency one, where he has to master science and one of three careers?  Well, it intimidates me, and I’m worried we will not be successful… SO!

Cyrus lives here now.
Screenshot

And things seem to be going okay upstairs…
Screenshot-2
I mean, Leif is a little sleepy, but with three brand new babies in the house, who can blame.

But OMG, I hate IF’s!  I *know* people like them, and I agree that they add a lot to the game, but LOOK!
Screenshot-3
Seriously.  It’s planning a way to EAT DAISY.  God they’re creepy.  *shudder*

AND WTF IS THIS!  LEIF, TRACI!
Screenshot-4
You are in SO much trouble.

Ugh!

And Traci!  Get the hell outta your husband’s man cave.  You have a perfectly LOVELY kitchen upstairs.  Git.
Screenshot-5
Traci: But my husband has fruit punch **SLURP**

Author’s note: I hate Traci.  Isn’t that funny? -_-

Also, with Bettina’s LTW, there wasn’t a fortune teller location when we moved, so she became “unemployed” and all that damned hard work we did getting her to level nine is long gone.  So I unceremoniously plopped a fortune teller lot in the town, and cheated her back up to level 9, but now she shows no private readings.  So I think it’s unlikely she’ll make her LTW.  Damn.  Thankfully however, back at level 9 she’ll bring home some bacon because…

no monies

Zales be broke.

Hey!  What’s this?
Screenshot-6
Shall there be birfdays?

Screenshot-7

YES!Screenshot-8
The family doesn’t know anyone, and I left the spares behind in … where was I?  Aurora Skies, so it was just a household affair.

Here’s the triplets!
DANE!
Screenshot-9
Drake!
Screenshot-10
And Daisy!
Screenshot-11
She has now caught up in size, and her IF can no longer consume her.  But I hate those damned things.  Cyrus takes drastic action in a little while.

I love the triplets.  We finally have some light blonde offspring, and Daisy has Traci’s blue eyes that I like so much.  But I don’t really have a favorite, and after playing for ages and working SO HARD at skilling them, no one pulled ahead… just saying.  I’m glad it’s a reader poll, because I’m not super attached to any of them.

What?  What’s this?
Screenshot-12
Permanent Pajamas Traci is having a baby!

It’s a Girl!  Yay!  2 boys and 2 girls!
Screenshot-13
Meet Dahlia Zale.  She likes Lime (so many greens in this family), goopy carbonara, and disco.  She rolled insane and excitable!  Well then!  We’ll have to learn more about her when she toddlerfies.

So, Cyrus is on constant micromanaging working on skilling the kids, going to work, and sleeping.  He’s barely scraping by.  Here’s a random shot I took while he was at work.
Screenshot-14
Bettina: Traci, it’s time you took off the maternity clothes.  You, and the baby stink.
Traci: YOU stink old lady

Ahem.  Apparently without Cyrus around, I didn’t know what to do…
I then got a pop up that BETTINA’s IF, Peanut, wanted to come out and play.  BETTINA is a grandmother of four.  BETTINA has no desire to play with Peanut.

So…  Cyrus?  Is that little blip you?
Screenshot-16

What are you doing, Cyrus?
Screenshot-15

Chorus of freaky, freaky toys:  CYRUS NO!!  WE LOOOOVE YOU!
Screenshot-17

Please Cyrus!  Don’t leave us!
Screenshot-18
Cyrus:  Peace bitches.

I ALMOST titled this post A Man and Three Potties.
Screenshot-19
Three potties in a very fancy, non-childlike living room.  By a very fancy indoor bamboo garden.  This house is in desperate need of a nursery or something family-friendly… oh well.

Founder’s Dual Haunting!
Screenshot-20
Abe: Nasty, my wife’s a ghost.
Okay… Idiot.

This is Cyrus’ life.  Skill Skill Skill
Screenshot-21
Aw… It’s one of the boy children.  Drake.

And Dane!  Cue cutest sequence this Simmer has ever captured.
Screenshot-23
Screenshot-24
Screenshot-25
Dawwwww!  :’-)

But seriously, Cyrus is working so hard all the time.
Screenshot-26
Here he is singed by the dishwasher he rolled a want to repair.  Then sell.  Ha.  Still working on skilling the triplets.

And Benji!  Being so freakin’ cute!
Screenshot-27

And the rest of the family?  Completely obsessed with Dahlia.  Cyrus if flying all over from one triplet to the next, and here’s the rest of the house:
Screenshot-30
Idiots.

HOLY CRAP!  You can put two of them in this thing!  I had mine up against a wall before, so I didn’t know!  SCORE!
Screenshot-31
The boys.  Aw.  Dane left, and Drake right.

Cyrus is very weak stomached.  I think it has to do with being neurotic, but he was CONSTANTLY gagging.  Wuss.  But I love him.
Screenshot-32

Cyrus and Leif:  If only there was some way to move through this solid wall.  Like a door!
Screenshot-33
Idiots.
*REMINDS ME – Cyrus needs Gnome of the Wrist Tattoo ASAP*

And seriously, after playing for about an hour, but constantly working on toddler skilling and preventing Cyrus from dying due to starvation, etc… I was SO OVER THEM.  The triplets are mostly skilled, it’s Dahlia’s birthday tomorrow, but I just had to take a damned BREAK!

I gave Cyrus one too.
Screenshot-34
Cyrus: Benji is the only creature in this house allowed in my man-cave.

Come back soon for Dahlia’s toddler birthday, and many more exciting events I’m SURE of it!

Happy Simming!
