Why hello! Welcome, welcome! Grab a cup o’ tea and enjoy another installment of the Zale Idiots. Last time we hung out, I fixed my save game issues, Daisy mastered Mixology and finally got the gnome tattoo, and Erik & Elaine aged to children! With 5 eligible heirs, and Evan rapidly approaching young adulthood, I decided that you all needed to get to know the children better. Since I tend to only focus on the TH, you really don’t know the kids that well. So! Let a chapter of children stalking and photo spam commence!
So, I just start clicking down the household list to see what they’re up to.
Evan is sleeping… Well… how about Ellen!
linty linty lint lint. BEGONE!
Asleep… okay… this isn’t going so well.
Well, here’s Erik!
Eating two bites of secondhand cake. Gross.
Elaine practices idle behaviors…
Hmm. No wonder I don’t post the children much… they’re terribly dull.
Wait! Erik livens things up a bit
UNCLE DANE RAGE! He HATES that guy.
And here’s old Cyrus. He’s been pretty neglected lately
Considering he’s the only one who brings in any real money, and he WAS a TH, I should pay more attention to him. HI CYRUS *waves*
And it’s a Zale ISBI Alphabetcy First!
Mastery certificate! YAY DAISY!
HA HA, Elaine, you so crazy!
This block! Behold it’s majesty!
And here we have Erik creeping me out
Possessed wide-eyed sleeper! Ugh! *shudder*
Elaine: I’m sorry! I just wanted to clean up!
And, broken. Great.
Entire Child Clan: How do we door?
Cyrus had no problem, Elaine appears to be heading back in… thus confusing everyone else. There’s even TWO sides to this door. No one can do it.
Oh wait, here we go…
Good job. I’m proud of you all *wipes away tear* (Wait, where’s Evie?)
Customary school bus shot.
Evie and Elaine did make it on the bus, you just can’t see them. This bus only has two seats. You THINK it has full sets… but no. Two seats.
Aw, look at my little studios children.
And Elaine is skeered on her first day.
Everyone but Ellen: How do stairs?
So… you just climb them? Strange! These aren’t like the skinny ones in our house we have no problem with. These are so open and wide!
Elaine: I think I can, I think I can…
Evan: Okay you two – if I don’t make it, go get help!
Erik: You all are stupid.
Come on Evie… you can do it…
Moderate Success! But ANOTHER door awaits them at the top! CHAOS!
Evie: What is wet stuff?
It falls from sky? 😀
And then, after Evie has conquered one door, one stairs, and discovered rain – her brain explodes and she dies.
Just kidding. She’s fine. BUT SERIOUSLY? This was painful. This is why I ignored them. They’re the spawn of idiots.
Well, can’t stalk the children when they’re at school… and there’s no daycare on Fridays!
So Gustave and Daisy take advantage of the solitude.
Erm, Gus? Does Daisy need to brush or something?
He then freaked out forever, maybe because Daisy put more clothes on suddenly and he was hoping for sexytimes.
Gus: Oh lawd, WHY!?!
… oh wait, did she go outside? Did she just get in the hot tub?
Okay Gus. You’re super weird and I’m worried about you and your little moodswing.
Daisy: Oh GUSSIE!!!
(breaks ankle to scope out sexy foot)
Hmm Gus. Maybe lose the umbrella?
He does! But where the hell did he put it? Don’t wanna know. -_-
Very steamy you two!
Daisy has the “soaked” moodlet while sitting in the hot tub…
Ya think? I mean, I know it’s raining – but seriously. She’s in the hot tub!
And then I see this pop up about Cyrus
I said yes, and aw, it’s cute! He works with his son!
After I say yes, I see this!
I don’t see any changes in his moodlet section… hmm.
Oh wait… when he came out from work, he had this!
Which I could totally go for right now, because I’m FREEZING.
Uh oh – Evie has to door again…
The teens had a field trip to the police station!
Hey! You go Evie!
She did surprisingly well!
It’s tiring being as cute as Ellen.
While waiting for the kids to get on the bus, I see that Daisy is STILL in the hot tub, I asked her to get out ages ago… I go to see what the problem is and…
…holy shit! What happened to Gus!?! Even he doesn’t seem to know.
Wow! He was struck by lightening!
And I missed it. 😦
As I return to my children stalking, I spot Traci at the diner!
Traci: Yeah? What of it? NOW you care about me?
Well yeah, kinda. You’re not driving me crazy all the time. And you still wear your wedding ring. Aw.
Back on the bus, Ellen looks a little left out…
I wanted to sit up front *pouts*
Sorry Ellen. Evie managed to work a door pretty well and beat you on the bus.
Back at the house, Cyrus lectures Evan on the importance of hard work.
Everyone: THE TRASH COMPACTOR IS BROKEN.
Don’t look at me, Elaine broke it.
Erik: How to door?
Oh no love. Not you too. And you can see Elaine waiting because she can’t figure out how to propel herself forward through the empty space of a wide open door.
Evie: Hey dad? How was your day?
Gustave: Well, Evie – not the best I’d say.
*Person Person Plus*
(FOLLOWING THE CHILDREN IS BORING AND I AM BORED)
Elaine: Screw homework!
Video Games Forever!
Ellen: Screw homework!
Erik then politely poses with the dog…
To show us the new and improved Duchess! (She was kinda boring, just sayin’)
So seriously, following the children around and watching them be stupid, stupid Simmies, I decided to send Daisy to the dive to make a little cash and OMG DO SOMETHING ELSE besides watch the children.
When I checked in with her she had a “Lea Offspring is being flirty” message and a “received flowers moodlet” Well okay then. Apparently I can’t take my eye off Daisy. But look! it’s Dahlia! *waves*
Bartender: OMG IT’S DAISY!
She’s gonna take my job!
So yeah, about that?
Of course she is!
Someone finally found the pool table upstairs! First time I’ve seen anyone use it!
Holy cow, this place is packed!
But then again, it IS the only nightlife in town.
And Daisy makes a SUPER fancy drink!
With a BLOWTORCH! I want one. Whatever it is.
Hmm, Daisy? Where ya goin’?
And why are you walking in the middle of the street?
I don’t think that’s an offroad bike… It’s almost like she glitched, and walked where she should’ve ridden, and rode where she should’ve walked.
Here’s a very dark picture of a protest! I’m including it for two reasons. One, it’s the first one I’ve ever seen!
And two – Drake’s there! It dispersed suddenly shortly after this shot.
Hey there Daisy! Whatcha doin’?
BUYING DAISY’S DIVE!
LTW FTW! HUZZAH!
Back at home, Elaine is being read to sleep by her STILL SINGED father! Aw!
It’s “Physically Fit to be Tied” – that book we stole from a party crasher awhile back. Funny.
And just in the other room we see…
Angelica! Holy crap dear, it’s been ages! I almost missed you!
Elaine: EW a Ghost!
SOO SLEEPY. Then go to bed!
Elaine: Hi sister I’ve never spoken to before, read me a bedtime story?
NO! You just had one! Get out of the basement and GO TO BED.
Sheesh Elaine, you’re ruining EVERYTHING.
Ellen is very hungry! Thankfully the sight of Angelica on the computer cancelled the action so she could react negatively to the ghost. I thought “Oh good, Elaine will go to bed now”
Abe is here too! Also playing on a computer!
Well, about to play anyway 🙂
Elaine: Read me to sleep?
Please? I’m ever so very tired… -_-
Angelica: Sure thing kid.
Elaine: NEVER MIND –
I’m too hungry now.
This child is killing me… Slowly and painfully.
Sure, eat some cake. It’s only 4:45 am. Why the fuck not.
Cyrus is also trying to get some sleep…
But Angelica is in the way. HA!
Damn ghosts wake up the whole freakin’ HOUSE
It’s a 4:00 am pajama party in the flooded kitchen. Complete with cake.
Daisy: Ghosts 🙂
No Daisy. Not 🙂 Not 🙂 at all. Nothing in this house is 🙂 right now.
Ellen finished her cake… stood up… thought negatively about the broken dishwasher…
…Even though it’s being repaired at that very moment…
…And down she goes…
Evan: *GASP* My little sister! it’s so sad!
… And hilarious!
*LAUGH CLAP CLAP CLAP*
I hate you Elaine.
NO NO NO NO NO! GO TO YOUR BED RIGHT NOW!
I love you Ellen.
Seriously. You are Zale ISBI Hero of the Day
And THEN you do your homework?
We got a pop-up that asked if Gustave would watch Kristoffer even though it was a Saturday… I said sure!
OMG Gustave! Take a shower! And Evie! You stink too!
Erik! You are also emitting stink fumes!
but thank you for doing the dishes, you’re excused.
Ellen and the Koi!
Ellen and the Trampoline!
*The exclamation points make them less boring.*
Hey! Evie does some homework!
Aw. Thank you child. Thank you for small miracles.
Take a damn shower you worthless man! You got struck by lightning AGES AGO!
Erik does homework at a DESK!
First time this ISBI since Bettina and Breanne where children! YAY! More small miracles!
The full moon ascends into the night sky…
Ruh-roh Cyrus! Something is coming!
CLOSE THE DOOR!
Aaaaannnd… That’s all folks! This post was painful – and I apologize. Come back next time to see if the zombie gets in and eats all of their BRAIINSSS. Not that they have much – or would miss them if they were gone… or if we’d even notice if they DID get eaten…
