Zales Being Zales 7.5

Well Hello!  Last time, I discovered Meredith, and I liked her so much I created some potential drama, but readers united and suggested I follow the wish pattern.  So honestly, not much happens this time!  Hence the title!  But read on to see how it goes!

We begin focusing on Meredith… Since she was the main discovery of the last post, aaaand…. here she is…

…napping in the rocking chair.  That I should sell, but I never do.

Meanwhile, Al was off at work and got a taste of his own medicine!
Serves Al Right!
It’s about time someone slapped him.  I approve.

Working on Giles’ wish to be “good friends” with Meredith, we show her a gross video.

…because she stinks, and that’s gross.

HA HA HA!  Apparently it’s TERRIBLE!
Screenshot-3
Let me see!  WE WANT TO SEE!

Hmm, I don’t know about you, but her reaction seems a bit dramatic.
Screenshot-4
Maybe a bit of a weird video, but gross?  Nah.

But apparently Meredith likes this stuff, because…
Screenshot-5
…person smellyperson plus!

I then get sick of her stench, so we go to cure her.

And… well?  SORRY!
Screenshot-7

FAMILY CHECK!

SHELLEY!
Screenshot-8
Oh dear, excuse me! *embarrassed*

Flora, Al and Harold…
Screenshot-9
…Careful Flora – he’s mean.  And in front of the baby!

Helen and Hank look like they’re up to something while they ride the school bus.
Screenshot-10
And it’s super dark, even though it’s around 4:30, it’s rainy and stormy out.

Lastly, we spot Hal …
Screenshot-11
Asleep… Exciting these Sims are!  (I think I’ve been reading too much of The Lockwood Chronicle, and now I’m talking like Yoda.)

Oh look, shocking, Alejandro and Flora are not getting along.
Screenshot-12
And a broken shower is flooding through the walls.  GREAT.

Hank and Helen arrive home…
Screenshot-13
…and Hank is adorable!

Helen and Flora enjoy their favorite activity, chatting in the rain!
Screenshot-14

Okay, so you all know I don’t like this guy, but he’s actually managing to be pretty adorable.
Screenshot-15
And he managed to get promoted a few times, unlike TRACI, Traci never went around smacking people.

But see?
Screenshot-16
It’s obvious why I liked him once.  Before his jerky nature became so apparent.

Shelley  has been sitting and watching Hank preside over the royal court for ages.
Screenshot-17
She’s very happy about it and has been having a nice time!  Silly Family Oriented Sims.

Helen, being the brave girl she is, checks under her bed for monsters.
Screenshot-18

THIS IS NOT GOOD!  THIS IS NOT GOOD!!!  ABORT MISSION!  ABORT!
Screenshot-19
HOLY CRAP!

Me too Helen, MEE TOOO!!!
me too!
WHAT KIND OF GAME IS THIS!
what kind of game!

Why are you  not running away!?!
Screenshot-20
I guess she really is brave.  I ❤ you, Helen!

Giles works nights now, and was heading out the door, and I captured him being…
Screenshot-21
too cute to be evil.  TCTBE.

He’s level four now, a getaway driver.
Screenshot-22
And he’s adorable.  I really enjoy my Giles.

***THIS PICTURE BROUGHT TO YOU BY…***
Screenshot-23
***…SHELLEY ZALE COOKING AND WEARING CLOTHING!!!***  Wee!

Flora here is about to pass out, but takes care of Hal first.  I’m sure he’s not sleepy, but thanks.
Screenshot-24
GnomeJuila watches from behind.  But Julia doesn’t read my blog anymore.  I miss laserkatt.

Yes Flora, put him to bed, I’m sure he’s VERY SLEEPY.
Screenshot-25
*facepalm*

Hal:  NO IDIOT WOMAN!
Screenshot-26
I JUST WOKE UP, I AM HUNGRY.  IT IS YOU WHO IS TIRED.

Then this happened, and well, I guess Flora isn’t THAT much of an idiot.
Screenshot-27

Except she is… because I don’t know about you, but I do not see Meredith in this bed.
Screenshot-28
Anyone?  See Meredith?  Yeah?  NO!  IDIOTS.

Oh man, Helen is checking again!
Screenshot-29
*nomonstersnomonstersnomonsters*

SERIOUSLY!?!
Screenshot-30
RUN SWEETIE!  RUN!

And yes, I too would sleep in the tree house.
Screenshot-31
you are forgiven.

NOTE:  A while back, Alejandro rolled a wish for a sonic shower.  I granted it, and put it in Meredith’s pool house space.  BUT ALL THE ZALES ARE ADDICTED.  Everyone uses it constantly, without issue by the way… but Flora?
Screenshot-32
She’s a moron. And standing upright in front of something and occasionally brushing your hair aside causes the above.  Oh dear, Flora.  You are too much.  Moron.

But back in the main house, Shelley is adorable.
Screenshot-33Family Oriented Sims!  I cannot relate.  But it’s adorable!

Hal is pretty cute too.
Screenshot-34
HA!  I love the eating of Mr. Green.  Classic.

So Giles was sore from working out so he can advance in his life of crime, so we asked for a massage from Meredith.
Screenshot-35
It’s a normal butler action, but I think these two are ADORABLE and they both look like they’re enjoying the moment.

Then Giles rolled a Meredith wish!  I had been waiting SO LONG…
pillow fight!
It’s not the “Get Married and Have Five Babies” wish I was hoping for yes I know, not a thing, but I am excited nonetheless!

So promptly, this happens!
Screenshot-36
OMG SHE IS TOO CUTE!

Watch that smile, Giles, she’s about to wipe it right off your face!
Screenshot-37

Toldja!
Screenshot-38

After this interaction I let Meredith take control of the show, and they gossip.
Screenshot-39
Too cute!

And HIGH FIVE!
Screenshot-40
Dorks.

AAAAaaaannndd… they’re totally the cutest friends ever.  Giles doesn’t roll any romantic wishes for her (or his husband, for that matter) nor does she initiate any romantic interactions with him.  We know she’s attracted to him, she sent him a letter – but ya know?  I don’t think she wants to be a home wrecker, I also think she is attached to the children, and doesn’t want to hurt them, or create chaos.  We’ll have to see what happens with Giles and Alejandro during Al’s midlife crises, and Giles’ potential one in a few days.  SPOILER: Alejandro has his adult birthday in a moment, and Giles is still YA.  And yet Giles was a YA when we invited Al over and Al was still a teen.  I REALLY WISH THIS GAME AGED SIMS PROPERLY.  Anyhoo, back to business…

YES GILES, You are VERY scary….
Screenshot-41
…especially in your purple floral swimwear towel that you’re wearing because you wanted to slide on the waterslide a moment ago, and I said NO!  *cancels “scare Flora” action out of his queue*

CAKES!  ON GLOWING COUNTERS!
Screenshot-42
GUESS WHAT?!?  They are not who you think they’re for!  I bet you think they’re for the toddlers!  BUT NO!  They have a few days left (much to my chagrin) but the two simmies these cakes are for were going to age themselves up in a few hours!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHELLEY!
Screenshot-43

And you…
Screenshot-44

Giles:  GOOOO MOM!  WOO!
Screenshot-45

Flora and Meredith:  ALRIGHT SHELLEY!!  YAY!
Screenshot-46

Aw, Shell…
Screenshot-47
Author’s Note:  I meant to REALLY try to call Shelley “Shell” but it never stuck.  I didn’t like the spelling of “Shelley” but I liked her so much, but yeah… Shell never really happened.

And you.
Screenshot-48
I cannot deny that your husband is rooting for you right now.  So Giles cares about you, even though you’re an abusive a$$.

But the kids care too!
Screenshot-49
For their “other daddy” who I don’t like, but they  have mediocre to decent relationships with.

It’s okay Shell… you’ll always be beautiful to me.
Screenshot-50

And you.
Screenshot-51
I don’t like you, so enjoy you’re terrible sparkle picture where it looks like you stepped out of TS1.

And I was *sarcasm* SOOO Surprised to see this!! *end sarcasm*
Oh Al.
I HATE YOU ALEJANDRO!  More than Traci.  And more than Angelica when she was a guitar addict, and more than Leif when he flirted with his mother-in-law, and more than Gustave when he sucked as a childcare provider, and I hate you SOO much more than Liz, who I still miss.  And Flora is fantastic and lovely, so you win ISBI-Spouse MOST HATED EXTRAORDINAIRE.  Your award?  I’d say divorce, but my readers aren’t sure, so… YOU GET TO WAIT AND SEE.

Here’s Shelley’s elder make-over!  Her seemed way too dark coming from a blonde, so I lightened it some, cut it a little, and redid her clothes!
Screenshot-52
I think she looks so great.  I’ve always loved Shelley.

Al gets a makeover too, he aged up in his teen hair, so I instantly send him to a mirror to fix… and I give him a hair style I don’t like, but am strangely drawn too.  It’s perfect.
Screenshot-53

I left Traci in the Zale Hair Curse, and I give Alejandro this style I can’t figure out.  It’s Perfect.

Parting Note:  How cute is Meredith eating with the children?
Screenshot-55

And I don’t recall making her bosom this big…
Screenshot-54

And that’s all folks!  I’ve really been enjoying time over on Miss Wingless’ blog, so if you have the desire, go give her a click!  She’s sweet as can be, too – so that’s always fun…

I think Sammy and I were alone in feeling the OMG JUST MAKE BABIES RIGHT NOW WITH MEREDITH AND GILES, but I think the hesitancy was right.  I actually like Meredith and Giles MORE right now, and I think it comes from not forcing things.  I was ready to send Alejandro away with all the boys, and maybe kick out Shelley and Flora – and well, it all seems SO WRONG now.  So I appreciate the feedback, and I approve of the way things have gone.  Except we still have to figure out what to do with Alejandro being a jerkface to everyone.  And I’m not giving up entirely on Giles and Meredith.  His midlife crises is yet to come, and if he rolls some flirty wishes, or some divorce wishes, well… we’ll see!  Come back soon!

    I’m fine with having Shelley and Flora move out into a house nearby(I did it on my Wisteria legacy) and moving Alejandro out as well. I think the boys should stay, only because it would be really sad to see them go. I am also glad that you didn’t rush things with Meredith because I enjoyed seeing their friendly chemistry and when they actually start rolling romantic wishes, it’ll be that much cuter :3

      I think I would be okay with them moving out nearby too, but since I don’t know how Al and Giles’ marriage is going to work, I’m not going to worry too much. 🙂 I know what you mean about not rushing Meredith and Giles. Their friendship is pretty spectacular. I hope he rolls some romance for her! We’ll see! (Might play tonight!)

    Awwww this was so cute. Shelley will be a really awesome elder 🙂
    I LOL’d at Alejandro’s new hairdo. It’s perfect for him.
    Meredith and Giles are SUPER MEGA CUTE. I guess even if nothing comes of it, at least they’ll be best buddies. Though I hope come Giles’ midlife crisis we have a sudden change of events.
    Anyway, great chapter as always 🙂

      I love Shelley as an elder, she’s one of my favorite elders since Abraham. And I agree, if they’re just best buddies, that’s going to be okay too! I’m excited to see what’s going to happen. Thanks for the nice compliment!

    >.> I hope things work out for them too.
    But I just don’t know how you would deal with the full house problem.
    Anyway, I trust you with your sims so whatever you do I’ll enjoy reading! 😉

    I love the checking under the bed action.
    Have you considered what you would do if he didn’t have a midlife crisis? Roth never had a single crisis wish when she went through hers recently.

      I love the action too! I haven’t had a “brave” child in ages, so it’s been wonderful! I have considered Giles not having any midlife crisis. It just means that Meredith and Giles will be good friends. 🙂

    Baw, I’m here again D: ❤ Also, it looks like GnomeJulia is perving on Flora's ass. I MEANT SHE TOTALLY JUST WANTS A TREAT. huehuehue (I actually didn't see the gnome first and thought you meant the toy horse and thought "SWEEET I'm a my little pony. Ahem.)
    I noticed I'm starting to run out of chapters, which makes me sad, but it has been my immense pleasure to read everything up to here ❤
    Hugs to you! HUGS I SAY!

      Ha ha! I wondered when you get to the post where I said you didn’t read my blog anymore and that I missed you. I thought about taking it out before you got there, but nah. You are so funny! Of course you’re not a little pony, you’re a doggie gnome! If I get another Uni Gnome, I will be renaming it LaserKitteh posthaste!

    I have never seen a monster under the bed before. That is terrifyingly awesome and reminds me why I love the Sims.

      Isn’t it just great? I love it. Sometimes you can capture the glowing red eyes under there too… but it’s really tricky to get shots of. It happens very quickly!
