Daisy Says Adieu 4.13

First, I’ve been meaning to tell you guys FOREVER that Daisy never had morning sickness with any of her pregnancies… She’s just that badass.  Second, I cannot BELIEVE how many more chapters Daisy has had vs. Cyrus.  Cyrus only had seven chapters, but this is Daisy’s 14th!  I still totally love Cyrus.  So last time we hung out with the Zales, we wasted time through Erik’s teenage years while granting Daisy’s every whim.  It was fun – but I’m over it, so lets move on!

We begin with our new TH snoozing away.  Aw…
Screenshot
Isn’t he cute?  He kinda totally is.  ❤ Erik

And while Erik snoozes, I had Daisy teach Duchess to speak… so here she is…
Screenshot-4
…Barking at Duchess.  So – as a dog trainer – this is NOT how you would teach your dog to “speak”…

Duchess agrees…
Screenshot-7
Screenshot-10
Huh?  o.O  whatchoo want?

And OMG ERIK!  STOP IT!
Screenshot-6
Erik: NEVAIR!
Screenshot-8
Deal with it.

Erik:  I’m ever so very tired…
Screenshot-12
I’m pretty sure you  just woke up from a nap, so cope a little, Mr. Diva.

(but he’s pretty damn cute – don’t tell him I said that)

I check in on Gustave, he’s standing around…
Screenshot-13
…Like always… Lookin’ pretty handsome though…
But then he does this!
Screenshot-14
DERRRR….PPP
Screenshot-15
I HAVE FOUND THE MISSING LINK!

After this lovely face – he heads off to bed – joining the rest of the sleeping household.  And I spy Traci!
Screenshot-16
At least she stays outside and doesn’t wake up the whole freakin’ HOUSE.

Super Ghost!
Screenshot-17
Traci: WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
(I’m glad she gets to come out and play with us…)

After a haunted night, we have a lovely family breakfast!
Screenshot-18
Aw… super cute.  ❤ my Zales.

What the hell?  Whodiss?
Screenshot-20
(He looks like a rainbow wolf stalking the house…)

Why it’s DUKE of course!
Screenshot-21
I made him myself!  I’m not super into fancy schmancy rainbow schemes, but Duchess was SO DULL (even after I put a heart on her) that I decided it was time we brought some creativity to the pets…

So meet Duke! (to go with Duchess of course!)
Screenshot-22
See his lovely eyes?  (Did I mention I made him myself?  Cuz I DID!)

Socialize!
Screenshot-23
Duchess: Yer awfully big Mr. Rainbow Dog…
But she likes him anyway… ❤
Screenshot-24
Duchess: Leafs! 😀
Duke: Cats! 😀
Aw… I luvs you guys.
PUPPIES!
Screenshot-27

*Rainy nighttime haunting pic*
Screenshot-25
HAI ANGELICA!  ❤

Then, a Zale family 3rd (or something)… a Zale works out!
Screenshot-26
Cyrus and Duke (who for some really annoying reason I want to call Hank.  NO HEATHER, his name is DUKE! YOU NAMED HIM DUKE – I even wrote “Hank” in some of my notes…FAIL)  Isn’t Hank Duke lovely?  I think so.

Just after this shot, Changpu shows up to haunt Cyrus…
Screenshot-28
Changpu: *ECHOES FROM ACROSS THE GREAT UNKNOWN* Who’s this hooker you buried right next to me?

Whelp, back to the new dog.  Because dog <3.
Screenshot-29
Duke is SO FREAKIN’ awesome.  ILU Duke!

And Duke + Future TH = ADORBS!
Screenshot-30
YOU CAN’T CATCH ME! (runs like a diva – just sayin’)
Screenshot-31
GO DUKE GO!  GO GET HIM! LOLZ!
Screenshot-32
YAY!  So much cute FTW!

And then – it was PROM!
Screenshot-33
Screenshot-35
Since ISBI teens do NOT get dates, it’s super awkward DON’T SIT BY ME limo time!
(Note: I love the hot air balloon in the window…)

So!  I took all these amazing notes with all the shit that happened at prom.  However, I have read MANY legacies, and PROMS ARE BORING unless someone gets a romantic interest, or a steady BF/GF or a first kiss.  Elaine hooked up with Orlando Skinner (and based off his thumbnail, he’s pretty cute!) but everything else was under the sea crap, alien lights, rejected dances, matching tuxes, wardrobe malfunctions, fights and regular bullshit… so I chose to skip it (although, what  waste of perfectly lovely notes…)  OH WAIT, really quick, while at prom, when Elaine gets all lovey dovey with Orlando Skinner, she rolled a golden body parts LTW, so I locked it in.

Upon returning from prom, I find…
Screenshot-34
…very cute dogs.  I freakin’ love those guys.

AND!  PUPPY TIME!
Screenshot-36

Duchess: O.O
Screenshot-37
It’s as big as I am!
No wonder she only had one!!  Poor thing…

Duke took a page out of Abraham’s book and slept through the birth (thought I took a picture, but I didn’t) but meet Eddie!
Screenshot-38
Eddie is clueless and lazy.  And adorable beyond all pixelated reason.
THE CUTE!  IT HURTS!
Screenshot-39
Dad loves his little peanut.
*kisses*
Screenshot-40
BABY SPAM!
Screenshot-42
Screenshot-43
Maybe you have to know the Zales (or to have manually created his daddy) to adore this puppy as much as I do, but I love him SO MUCH!  Eddie FTW!

So!  At this point, I get a pop up that Elaine and Erik have 2 days until their YA birthday, Daisy also has two until her elder, and Gustave has 3.  So I’m gonna AGE UP ALL OF THEM!  EPIC BIRTHDAY!

Epic birthday?
Screenshot-45
This is River McIrish – she party crashes all Zale parties.  She showed up, is still in the ACTION of heartfarting Gustave, (can you tell from her thought bubble?) and then SHE DIES.
Here’s everyone reacting…
Screenshot-44
Don’t mind all the children, they’re from Gustave’s day care.  Most people are thinking about Dahlia while she chokes herself.  Elder Drake is heading home, we won’t see him again tonight – apparently the stranger death ruined the party for him.  I love how Elaine’s all “HAI ELLEN!  I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WERE COMING!” *waves*

Someone JUST DIED PEOPLE!

But oh well.  CAKE!
Screenshot-46

PARTY!
Screenshot-47
Daphne and Elder Dane! (Drake and Dane are elders now… That means that three of Cyrus’ children are Elders!)

Don’t forget Dahlia! (One should never forget Dahlia – she’ll hurt you)
Screenshot-48
TOOT!

Ellen and Evan made it too!
Screenshot-49
Ellen: *STARES* Oh hello father, are you growing old? (CREEPY)

Evie is here too – with a party crasher…
Screenshot-50
…and we get to see Daph & Elder Dane again.

Gus went first!
Screenshot-51

Then Erik!
Screenshot-52
*Sparkly*
Before Makeover:
Screenshot-53
Erik rolled rebellious.  He is now a friendly, grumpy, genius diva – who is rebellious. 😐
Remember – he had rolled that famous surgeon LTW.

Elaine!
Screenshot-54
Elaine rolled snob (*LOL*)  She is now an outdoor hating, artistic, neurotic, over-emotional SNOB.  HA HA HA.  I love her traits!  It just sounds like someone you’d meet in real life.  And hate.

Daisy went last…
Screenshot-55
…Aw.  I will ❤ you forever Daisy.  You were my favorite.

MAKEOVERS!
DAISY!  I felt she’d rock short hair and lilac tips.
Screenshot-56
You are still a BAMF Daisy.

Gustave!  After all that shaggy hair, I felt he’d LOSE IT.
Screenshot-57
Go stand around some more, why don’t ya?

Elaine!
Screenshot-59
She has the tiniest nose.  I miss Ellen.  BUT!  She’s lovely and carries on Daisy’s hair.

Last but not least, TH ERIK!
Screenshot-58
Erik:  Look at me.  That’s right.  LOOK.  Now shhhhhhhhhh…

*AHEM*

Duke (not Hank) was starving and found leftover birthday cake!
Screenshot-60

GRADUATION! (I am just as tired of typing this shit as you are of reading it… so ENJOY!)
Screenshot-61
Screenshot-62
Screenshot-63
Screenshot-64
*who the HELL are all these people!?!*

Elaine:
Screenshot-65
DIPLOMA TOSS!
Elaine was voted “Most Artistic” – must’ve been that one painting she almost finished. -_-

Erik!
Screenshot-66
Sleepy, and with his arm in his face *toss!* He was voted “Most Likely to Take Over the World”  Sure.  He just wants to be a surgeon.

Here we have Daisy’s last action as TH
Screenshot-67
Because a formal wear dishwasher repair just seemed like the way the Zales would go.  Fancy to the end.

I have Erik and Elaine take aptitude tests!
Erik’s!
Erik's aptitude
Too bad he needs medicine – but I’m pretty proud of him anyway.

Here’s Elaine’s!
Elaine's Aptitude
At least she IS a fine arts major! (based off her artistic trait)

And it’s adieu to the youngest Zale Twins!
Apparently only sleepy Erik packs any belongings…
Screenshot-68

So!  That’s that!  Daisy’s reign of awesomeness comes to an end.  Join us again soon to enjoy Erik and Elaine’s adventures at University!  Welcome to the E generation!

Happy Thanksgiving to American readers, and CHEERS!  HAPPY SIMMING!
*PS – my birthday is in 40 minutes, Pacific Time  😀

Granting Daisy’s Wishes 4.12

Hey Simmers!  Welcome to a new post!  I closed the heir poll one day early so I could play on Sunday.  I always play on Sunday.  Erik won!  I’m happy we’re maintaining the boy/girl/boy/girl pattern, but I was genuinely surprised that Erik received more votes than some of the cool females in this generation!  Onward!

We begin with Gustave freakin’ out because the party for Erik and Elaine’s teen birthday was ROCKIN’!
Screenshot
Gus:  WOOOOOO!

And oh Erik…
Screenshot-2
Future TH Everyone!

I hate diva Sims…
Screenshot-3

So much…
Screenshot-4
Erik: *singing*  I came from thereeeee!  (Points at father’s crotch)
Erik rolled a be renowned surgeon LTW – I locked it in.  I think he rolled it when he saw Traci die.
He is also 14 days away from YA – so there’s LOTS of Daisy time left!  YAY!

Gus:  MY SON IS IN MY WAY!
Screenshot-5
Really moron?  He’s BEHIND YOU.

Daisy rolled a wish to teach Erik to drive, and Erik rolled a wish to learn to drive, so here we go!
Screenshot-6

And then this….
Screenshot-7
Daisy: Not on the sidewalk, son…

Apparently Sim World doesn’t know how to cope with sidewalk driving…
Screenshot-8
Floating seated Sims!  Erik was even “driving” around like that, wonderfully entertaining glitch.

The glitch fixed itself by basically resetting the two of them, so then this happened:
Screenshot-9
Note:  Take future teens out to drive during non-curfew violating hours.

Daisy still hadn’t made it home, but Gustave makes sure he scolds poor Erik…
Screenshot-10
Erik: Daaaad!  I was just learning to drive with Mom!  It was HER idea!  The car broke down and…

Daisy: It’s okay son, you’re excused…Screenshot-11
Erik: *Thinks* and I’m doing so well in school!  If I’m grounded I can’t go and…
DIVA!  Calm down – you’re off the hook.

Since I killed Traci died, and WONDERFUL LOVELY SIMMER FRIENDS helped me, Daisy heads to the graveyard… She was very brave.
Screenshot-12
I love the fire ghost, and the abandoned IF’s that were dropped off when a party crasher died in the Zale house.

We found her!
Screenshot-13
I laid her to rest next to Changpu – It’s a Cyrus’ Lovers plot.  I gave Traci the red flowers.  I guess I kind of feel guilty for how I treated her.  But I still don’t like her.  Much.

The next a day, a whole new daycare crew arrives!
Screenshot-14
These kiddos are: Erick Grubbs, Garland *snort* Grubbs, Dina Grubbs, & Samantha Garvin.  I meant to check the town for a Garvin family, because I’m pretty sure I’ve spotted a Grubbs paparazzi.  But I forgot.

Daisy rolled a wish to go to the spa (Pregnant!?!)
Screenshot-15
And when she arrived, we saw a VERY angry Dahlia!
Dahlia:  WHY WAS I NOT IN THE HEADER YOU BITCH!  I WILL CUT YOU!
I’m sorry Dahlia.  I know you will.  I fixed it.  See?  Don’t hurt me.

Aw, she misses her momma!
Screenshot-16
A lot!
Screenshot-17
Seriously – she just stood out here and WAILED the entire time Daisy was getting her Soothing Salvation treatment.
Screenshot-18

But then Daph appears!
Screenshot-19
Hmm, she doesn’t look much happier… *Note: Dahlia STILL mourning*

Poor Dahlia!
Screenshot-23
Let’s cure her!
Screenshot-24

And a little bit earlier I caught the ground thinking about ghosts…
Screenshot-20
…must’ve been all of Dahlia’s lamenting of the dead…

Is that a Sim trapped down there?  o.O?

Dahlia:  Thanks Sister!
Screenshot-25
Book on the ground thinks about itself.  It was also reading itself as the pages were turning.

Screenshot-26
Hi Book!  So, although I find this quite funny, I’m disturbed that there might be a Sim trapped down there.  I had a dog glitch like this, but it was “just” a dog, so I put him up for adoption, problem solved… anyone know how to fix this poor soul?  (no mods)

SO much happened while Daisy was out at the salon…Cyclone made an appearance:
Screenshot-27
I HATE PARTIALLY CLOUDY/PARTIALLY SUNNY WEATHER! !@#$%^
Note: He died later.  Just sayin’.

And then THIS familiar face showed up.
Screenshot-28
Hi Brandy!  FatRipped SheMale!  Ugh.  Can you ever NOT make a gross face?  Please?

After the excitement died down outside the salon, I sent Daisy home.  We discovered:
Screenshot-29
Kayla Offspring!  She’s someone’s friend or romantic interest, so she followed one of them home.  They of course ignored her and probably went to sleep, but Hi There Kayla!

Hmm, she’s “unique”…
Screenshot-30
But she waves to Daisy, so I automatically like her.

Speaking of waving… HI DUCHESS! *Waves* (you ALSO made it in the header Woo!)
Screenshot-31
She’s a little hard to see on Cyrus’ black sheets, but she’s a neat little dog.  ❤

Then, the moment we’ve all been waiting for!
Screenshot-32
Hi Traci!  I’m actually happy to see you.  (I’m now dealing with weird feelings of affection/guilt in regards to Traci.)  I’ll engrave her epitaph with something heartfelt.  I also hereby acknowledge that you made many VERY lovely children.  Okay guilt over.

Back in the house, Ellen does her homework!
Screenshot-33
Erik: God, Ellen, quit making me look bad.
Seriously Erik – must you ALWAYS look like a diva?  You have your own incomplete homework, feel free to join in and make yourself look just as good.

Elaine sings while cooking ❤
Screenshot-34
just like her momma Daisy.  She’s also just as off-key as Daisy – but it’s okay.  ILU Elaine.

Gus wakes up to a brand new morning and prepares for daycare…
Screenshot-35
…with a drink.
I don’t even know who made these, it wasn’t Daisy.

Meanwhile… Seriously Erik?
Screenshot-36
Try to cope a little, huh?  You have a LOT worse in you future.

Evie notices ghosts on the property, and head out for a chat!
Screenshot-37
Hi Grandma Traci!  *What’s with the swimwear?  Traci – once a hooker, always a hooker*

*Gasp* DUCHESS!
Screenshot-38
Bad puppy!  She’s like a real dog and just cannot learn how to potty outside.  She’s also ignored 84% of the time – so I can’t really blame her.

I FINALLY CAUGHT AN EPIC PANCAKE FLIP!
Screenshot-39
I think the smoke detector just adds to the image.  (defending horribly bland beige house)

So Daisy rolled another random wish (SO NOT PREGNANT), to learn fishing skill!
Screenshot-40
So we headed right across the street to practice!

Daisy just so happens to SING while fishing…
Screenshot-41
Complete with all arm movements…

…this CANNOT be good for fishing…
Screenshot-42
It is however, hilarious.
She did manage to catch a few things, even a rainbow trout!

And while she’s off fishing, alright Gustave!
Good Gus
WTG You!

Ooops… Sorry Mr. No-Votes…
Screenshot-44
I forgot about you…
Screenshot-45
But I got your sparkly picture, so we’re cool, right?

EVAN!
Screenshot-46
Evan ROLLED LOSER, which couldn’t have been more fitting or entertaining.  He’s now a good, clumsy, eccentric, never-nude politician!  I must say – never-nude politician can at least guarantee he won’t be caught by the tabloids!

But yeah, PEACE OUT EVAN!
Screenshot-47
Your mom may be too busy eating pancakes to care.  But I do.  A little.

Just after Evan vacates the premises, we have a dual haunting!
Screenshot-48
It’s Angelica and Changpu!  I keep hoping it’ll be Traci and Changpu just to F$%^ with Cyrus, but this was fun too.

Evie was disrupted by the ghosts, so instead of sleeping works on her homework!
Screenshot-49
At a desk!  (I have genuinely documented every time this has ever happened.  It matters to me, okay?  I’m sure everyone else has wonderful little sim-children who do their homework at desks ALL THE TIME, but mine do not!)

Then ALL THE CHILDREN congregate in Elaine and Erik’s bedroom!
Screenshot-50
Pajama Party!

Diva Erik grabs a PB&J from the fridge…
Screenshot-51
Just so happens he loves PB&J!

So Daisy rolled a hopscotch with Erik wish… *GRANTED*
Screenshot-52
Apparently she’s losing.  Aw.

I then catch Gustave being surprisingly endearing…
Screenshot-53
Sprinkler fun!

And then Ellen and Duchess continue the Zale Family Cuteness trend.
Screenshot-54

And artistic Elaine, well she finds…
Screenshot-55
The easel!  She hasn’t finished it yet.  😦

Then our dear, DEAR founder haunts just before dawn…
Screenshot-56
Lovely!

Aw Abe, you cutie:
Screenshot-57

Cyrus, you’re too cute too!
Screenshot-59

Oh no!  Be careful!
Screenshot-60
You aren’t as young as you used to be!

And Erik FINALLY learns to drive…
driving Erik

And it’s off to the festival in ERIK’S ORANGE wagon!
Screenshot-61

And the second we arrive, it’s an Evan and Dahlia sighting!
Screenshot-62
Hi Guys!

Daisy rolled a wish for a hot dog eating contest *GRANTED*
Screenshot-63
I had her invite a few of her kids, Elaine is NOT pleased.
Screenshot-64
Screenshot-65
Screenshot-66
Ellen wins!  By a LOT – and if you scroll up a bit, you’ll see she started last!  Ellen can SNARF food!

Evie found the trampoline!
Screenshot-67

Freakin’ cute Cyrus makes a sno-cone!
Screenshot-68
Seriously, cutest old Sim I’ve had.  Aw…

Where’s Gustave?
Screenshot-69
Reading on a bench being lame.  But Cyrus TOTALLY improves this picture. ❤ Cyrus.

Look!  It’s Daphne!
Screenshot-70

Drake too!
Screenshot-71

And since Evan was there, I had him join the family portrait…Aw..
Screenshot-72
Erik you Diva bastard, get out of the way!

And we received Erik’s driving certificate!  Zale First!!
Screenshot-73
Hmm. I said DRIVING – not DIVING.  Stupid Graphic.

Hi Duchess!
Screenshot-74
You are SO cute!

And Zales are EVERYWHERE!
Screenshot-75
You know what that means!

BIRTHDAYS!
Screenshot-76
Screenshot-77
Screenshot-79
Screenshot-78
YAY!

Evie rolled genius.  She is now a charismatic, bookworm, slob, eccentric, genius.  During this play session – one time after school – she rolled golden tongue, golden fingers.  I locked it in.
Screenshot-81

Ellen rolled dog person.  She is now a night owl, eccentric, natural cook, friendly dog person – who’s LTW is to be a celebrated 5 star chef!
Screenshot-80

And peace.  Scram.  Skedaddle.
Screenshot-82
BYE LADIES!

And I cannot possibly express how amazing this is.
not a million sims
There’s so few of them!  YAYAYAYAY!

Oh.  Then on a Save As & Quit my game crashed. :@

So I opened it up, just in the launcher to see how bad it was…
yay, it's fine!
It’s okay!  They moved out!  YAY!  Nothing lost!
(still very worrisome though.  I just wish it would run okay. 😦 )

Let’s hope it loads, shall we!

So!  This was an epically long play session!  Come back soon, and we MIGHT make it all the way through the rest of Elaine and Erik’s teen years.  There’s a prom looming!  I promised LaserKatt that I would send the E generation to Univeristy – so we might have that to look forward to as well!

Until next time, Happy Simming!

YOU Should Think of the Children! (Heir Poll) 4.11

Oh HI!  I didn’t see you there!  Well, since you’ve stopped by, welcome to another Zale Family ISBI – Alphabetcy post!  We’re happy to see you.  Last time stuff happened.  And if you care you can click here to read the last the post.  Recap FINISHED.

We begin with this LOVELY notification
freezing Erik!

Well of course he’s freezing.  He’s a fifth generation IDIOT and playing in the sprinklers at 2 am on an early spring (40 degrees F) day…
Screenshot
Yeah Erik.  You shiver.  You suffer your own bad decisions.

Meanwhile, Daisy broke the TV.
Screenshot-2
I then made her fix the TV
Screenshot-3
I documented this in case she died.  She didn’t.  Aren’t you glad you stopped by?  Me too.  It may or may not improve from here.

Well… on a positive note, the B Generation haunts together!
Screenshot-4
Isn’t that cute?  Bettina and Leif.  Aw.

Leif: Oh, were you trying to take a picture?
Screenshot-5
HERE’S MY FACE!  *PHOTOBOMB*  Yes yes. Hello Leif.  I miss your money ❤.

And, after much experience with our cowardly TH, we all know what a ghost sighting means…Screenshot-6
Yes Daisy, we all know how scared you are of Leif…  Hurry up and pass out so we can move on.

Daisy: OKAY!
Screenshot-7
Good.  Let’s proceed, shall we?

Aw, look at cute little Elaine!
Screenshot-8
Or perhaps we meant VIOLENT ELAINE!
Screenshot-9
*SMASH SMASH SMASH*

Oh Cyrus… you are SUCH a DWEEB!
Screenshot-10
But where are you heading?
TO THE SPRING FESTIVAL! (Note:  I leave Duchess at home this time…)
Car full of family:
Screenshot-11
Which is totally cute, and all – but like way more of them are stashed in the trunk or something…

See?
Screenshot-12
They all rode here together.

And SCATTER!
Screenshot-13
Have fun!

Ellen starts us of by searching for Festival Eggs…
Screenshot-14
I think she might’ve stepped on one.

Evie throws horseshoes!
Screenshot-15

OMG Cyrus… I don’t think you’ve ever been so cute.
Screenshot-16
Old man Cyrus FTW!

And there’s LOTS of dancing!
Screenshot-17
Aren’t they adorbs?  Except Blonde 70s Bunch Family Reject.  Not invited.

I was constantly clicking down the family list to see what they were all up to.
Screenshot-18
Apparently “Hate the Outdoors” Elaine had had enough “outside” and sent herself home.  Loser.

Oh… Ellen… Too cute…
Screenshot-19
Horseshoes take concentration!

More groovin’ over on da dance floor!
Screenshot-20
Evie has fun with half the Bunch clan.  Darlene like, Jazzercizes all over the place.  You had to be there, but LOL.

Daisy rolls a wish for face painting… so SURE!
Screenshot-21
Aw Dais… you are so great! ❤

Ellen and Darlene sync their horseshoe games…
Screenshot-22
…And apparently Darlene put on pants since her dance routine.

Daisy decides to try out the kissing booths!
Screenshot-23
Girls too!
Screenshot-24
(I’m taking this to my GRAVE!)

And then I decide Daisy’s pretty hot, so let us try rockin’ the booth ourselves!
Screenshot-25
Blows Kisses:
Screenshot-26
Well… that was surprisingly uneventful…

While the Zales tear up the Spring Festival, I spot no one other than…
Screenshot-27
Traci!  She’s at the restaurant with Madison VanWatson.  Hi Traci!!

The Zales are all having a fine time, but fading fast!  We return home to…
Screenshot-28…Daphne!  What the hell are you doing here?!?  It’s evening.  I cannot prepare waffles for you.

NOTE:  At this very moment – after paying all this recent and disgusting attention to the children, I actually catch a rolled LTW or two.  Evan rolls “Leader of the Free World”, I locked it in.  Evie rolled a wish to be friends with 15 dogs, but f-that.  Also, Daisy has LTH points coming out of her ears, so I buy a “Young Again” potion, never know when you might want one!

Moving on – we return home, and the family stands around socializing like normal people…
Screenshot-29…weird.

Gus snaps us back to IDIOT reality with this face…
Screenshot-30
… yeah gross.  Don’t do that again, ‘kay?  Thanx.  *GAG*

Speaking of faces, we all know this one…
Screenshot-31
Erik Pee Fail.  Good job child.

Daisy, however, LOVES her family – fails included.  So she promptly sports her new family portrait…
Screenshot-32
…on the bar of course, so she can wash away the idiocy with liquor juice, and bask in the cuteness.

**CYRUS UPDATE** He’s 82 days old and has 189894 LTH  (in case he goes and dies)

Oh goody…
Screenshot-33
…It’s the daycare horde.  My favorite kill me now.

Well, Daisy woke up grumpy, so I decide to have her take Duchess for a walk…
Screenshot-34
…Skip this daycare bullshit.  Let Gus do it for his $300 a WEEK.

Aw… Zale Family First – walk a dog.
Screenshot-35
Cute right?  I think so too…

Except Daisy kept bein’ all gimpy with one of her knees…
Screenshot-36
Can you tell?  That is NOT a normal gait…
Screenshot-37
SEE!??!  I laughed SO HARD – and it’s hard to capture in stills.  But it took Daisy and Duchess right near 11 hours to get to their destination, and Daisy gimped on her bad knee the entire time.  I SO KNOW you had to be there, but it was epically hilarious.

So, like I said, 11 hours later, we reach the pool!  And who should we spot!  But Traci!
Screenshot-38
Seriously, I think she stalks the Zales.  She’s always there, but not quite there.  Stalker.

But she IS Daisy’s mom, so they have a breath holding contest…
Screenshot-41
…Daisy lost, but celebrated like an IDIOT…. 😐

POOL PUPPY!
Screenshot-39
Screenshot-40
Having learned my lesson, BTW – I have Daisy pick Duchess up, and they take a cab home.  Look at me all learning and stuff.

And Gus!  He was ALL ALONE, I didn’t even WATCH with the daycare horde today, and look!
Gus does okay
Aw… Good for you Gussie.

Oh.  Then we see this…
Traci's gonna die
She’s gonna DIE!

Well, the kids are only a couple days from a birthday – so PARTY TIME!
Daphne’s the first to show…
Screenshot-46
Cake?!?!  Yes Daph.  Later.  In just a few minutes…

Dahlia shows up too!
Screenshot-44
Then Drake!
Screenshot-47
Guest of honor TRACI!
Screenshot-48
And ruggedly  handsome Dane!
Screenshot-49
HI EVERYONE!

Party shots!
Screenshot-50
Elaine & Erik!
Holy Carp!  (Yes carp – the fish)…
Screenshot-52
…That’s a LOT of Zales!  (and a maid)  WEEEEEE!

Elaine!
Screenshot-53

Erik!
Screenshot-54

And Dahlia pretends she’s a DOG!
Screenshot-57
HA HA HA!

Traci then goes to put a dish in the dishwasher…
Screenshot-58
…And dies.

Evan: OMG It’s so dirty *weeps*  Daisy: OMG the dishwasher, we JUST had it fixed *weeps*
Screenshot-59
Traci:  Oop.  I’m dead.

Almost Everyone: Oh.  Is something happening?
Screenshot-60
Evie: OMG THE DISHWASHER!

Death appeared in the hall, and then walked ALL the way around to collect Traci.  Kinda funny.
Screenshot-61

Oh Cyrus – don’t do this…
Screenshot-62
😦

Screenshot-65
Traci pleads… Death doesn’t care – and it curtains for Traci!

I was far more moved than I thought I would be.  Still not a lot of cares given – but some.  A few cares.

AND WELL – I may or may not have forced Traci to pass away at the party.  I wanted her remains on Zale property so I could bury her and be pissed every time she haunted.  I mean – I got the pop-up!  She was as good as dead!  But then I couldn’t find her worthless little urn anywhere – and I SAW IT before she floated away… 😦  I think it might be gone.

Because I sort of killed her, and couldn’t find her urn – I let everyone mourn.Screenshot-66

For a bit…
Screenshot-67
And then I quit because!!!!

MOTHAFREAKIN’ HEIR POLL!
See?  See how cute they are?!?

Happy Simming!

Won’t Someone Think of the Children!?! 4.10

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.
Hmm.  Boring.
Screenshot
Evan is sleeping… Well… how about Ellen!

Aha!
Screenshot-2
linty linty lint lint.  BEGONE!

And Evie?
Screenshot-3
Asleep… okay… this isn’t going so well.

Well, here’s Erik!
Screenshot-4
Eating two bites of secondhand cake.  Gross.

Elaine practices idle behaviors…
Screenshot-5
*Cracks knuckles*

Hmm.  No wonder I don’t post the children much… they’re terribly dull.

Wait!  Erik livens things up a bit
Screenshot-6
UNCLE DANE RAGE!  He HATES that guy.

And here’s old Cyrus.  He’s been pretty neglected lately
Screenshot-7
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!
Screenshot-8
Mastery certificate!  YAY DAISY!

HA HA, Elaine, you so crazy!
Screenshot-9
This block!  Behold it’s majesty!

And here we have Erik creeping me out
Screenshot-10
Possessed wide-eyed sleeper!  Ugh!  *shudder*

Elaine: I’m sorry!  I just wanted to clean up!
Screenshot-11
And, broken.  Great.

Entire Child Clan: How do we door?
Screenshot-12
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…
Screenshot-13
Good job.  I’m proud of you all *wipes away tear*  (Wait, where’s Evie?)

Customary school bus shot.
Screenshot-14
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.
Screenshot-15
And Elaine is skeered on her first day.

Everyone but Ellen:  How do stairs?
Screenshot-16
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…
Screenshot-17
Success!

Evan:  Okay you two – if I don’t make it, go get help!
Screenshot-18

Erik:  You all are stupid.
Screenshot-19

Come on Evie… you can do it…
Screenshot-20
Moderate Success!  But ANOTHER door awaits them at the top!  CHAOS!

Evie: What is wet stuff?
Screenshot-21
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.
Screenshot-22
Smoochie!

Erm, Gus?  Does Daisy need to brush or something?
Screenshot-23
He then freaked out forever, maybe because Daisy put more clothes on suddenly and he was hoping for sexytimes.
Gus: Oh lawd, WHY!?!
Screenshot-24
oh wait, did she go outside?  Did she just get in the hot tub?

Woohoo!
Screenshot-25
Okay Gus.  You’re super weird and I’m worried about you and your little moodswing.

Daisy: Oh GUSSIE!!!
Screenshot-26
(breaks ankle to scope out sexy foot)

Hmm Gus.  Maybe lose the umbrella?
Screenshot-27

He does!  But where the hell did he put it?  Don’t wanna know.  -_-
Screenshot-28
Very steamy you two!

Daisy has the “soaked” moodlet while sitting in the hot tub…
soaked
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
I said yes, and aw, it’s cute!  He works with his son!

After I say yes, I see this!
hmm
I don’t see any changes in his moodlet section… hmm.

Oh wait… when he came out from work, he had this!
fuzzy
Which I could totally go for right now, because I’m FREEZING.

Uh oh – Evie has to door again…
Screenshot-29
The teens had a field trip to the police station!

Hey!  You go Evie!
Screenshot-30
She did surprisingly well!

Ellen: *YAWN*
Screenshot-31
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…
Screenshot-32
…holy shit!  What happened to Gus!?!  Even he doesn’t seem to know.

Wow!  He was struck by lightening!
lightning strike
And I missed it.  😦

As I return to my children stalking, I spot Traci at the diner!
Screenshot-33

Traci: Yeah?  What of it?  NOW you care about me?
Screenshot-34
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…
Screenshot-35
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.
Screenshot-36
Everyone:  THE TRASH COMPACTOR IS BROKEN.
Don’t look at me, Elaine broke it.

Erik: How to door?
Screenshot-37
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?
Screenshot-38
Gustave: Well, Evie – not the best I’d say.
Screenshot-39
*Person Person Plus*

(FOLLOWING THE CHILDREN IS BORING AND I AM BORED)

Elaine:  Screw homework!
Screenshot-40
Video Games Forever!

Ellen: Screw homework!
Screenshot-41
Bedtime!

Erik then politely poses with the dog…
Screenshot-42
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.
Screenshot-43
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!
Screenshot-44
She’s gonna take my job!

So yeah, about that?
Screenshot-45
Of course she is!

And OMGYAY!
Screenshot-46
Someone finally found the pool table upstairs!  First time I’ve seen anyone use it!

Holy cow, this place is packed!
Screenshot-47
But then again, it IS the only nightlife in town.

And Daisy makes a SUPER fancy drink!
Screenshot-48
With a BLOWTORCH!  I want one.  Whatever it is.

Hmm, Daisy?  Where ya goin’?
Screenshot-49
And why are you walking in the middle of the street?

Um?  Honey?
Screenshot-50
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!
Screenshot-51
And two – Drake’s there!  It dispersed suddenly shortly after this shot.

Hey there Daisy!  Whatcha doin’?
Screenshot-52

BUYING DAISY’S DIVE!
LTW FTW
LTW FTW!  HUZZAH!

Back at home, Elaine is being read to sleep by her STILL SINGED father!  Aw!
Screenshot-53
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…
Screenshot-54
Angelica! Holy crap dear, it’s been ages!  I almost missed you!

Elaine:  EW a Ghost!
Screenshot-55
SOO SLEEPY.  Then go to bed!

Elaine: Hi sister I’ve never spoken to before, read me a bedtime story?
Screenshot-56
Ellen:  SURE!
NO!  You just had one!  Get out of the basement and GO TO BED.

Sheesh Elaine, you’re ruining EVERYTHING.
Screenshot-58
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!
Screenshot-57Well, about to play anyway 🙂

Elaine:  Read me to sleep?
Screenshot-59

Please?  I’m ever so very tired… -_-
Screenshot-60
Angelica: Sure thing kid.

Elaine:  NEVER MIND –
Screenshot-61
I’m too hungry now.

This child is killing me… Slowly and painfully.
Screenshot-62
Sure, eat some cake.  It’s only 4:45 am.  Why the fuck not.

Cyrus is also trying to get some sleep…
Screenshot-63
But Angelica is in the way.  HA!

Damn ghosts wake up the whole freakin’ HOUSE
Screenshot-64
It’s a 4:00 am pajama party in the flooded kitchen.  Complete with cake.

Daisy:  Ghosts 🙂
Screenshot-65
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…
Screenshot-66
…Even though it’s being repaired at that very moment…

…And down she goes…
Screenshot-67

Evan:  *GASP* My little sister!  it’s so sad!
Screenshot-68

… And hilarious!
Screenshot-69
*LAUGH CLAP CLAP CLAP*

😐

Screenshot-70
I hate you Elaine.

WHAT?  SERIOUSLY?
NO!  BED!
NO NO NO NO NO!  GO TO YOUR BED RIGHT NOW!

I love you Ellen.
Screenshot-71
Seriously.  You are Zale ISBI Hero of the Day
Screenshot-72

And THEN you do your homework?
Screenshot-73
DOORBELL!

We got a pop-up that asked if Gustave would watch Kristoffer even though it was a Saturday… I said sure!
Screenshot-74
OMG Gustave!  Take a shower!  And Evie!  You stink too!

Erik!  You are also emitting stink fumes!
Screenshot-75
but thank you for doing the dishes, you’re excused.

Ellen and the Koi!
Screenshot-76

Ellen and the Trampoline!
Screenshot-77
*The exclamation points make them less boring.*

Hey!  Evie does some homework!
Screenshot-78
Aw.  Thank you child.  Thank you for small miracles.

OMG GUSTAVE!
Screenshot-79
Take a damn shower you worthless man!  You got struck by lightning AGES AGO!

Erik does homework at a DESK!
Screenshot-80
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!
Screenshot-81

QUICK!
Screenshot-82
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…

😐

 

Save the Zales 4.9

Hi Simmers!  Last time, I suffered Technical Difficulties, but with the help and support of my fellow Simmers, Zale life goes on!  And before the chaos of failed saves, Duchess made an incredible journey, Daisy got out more, I remembered we had a basement, the Daycare KILLZ ME, and Ellen and Evie made it to Teenager!  So let us see what we can get up to next!

We begin with:  Gustave and Erik bein’ cute.
Screenshot
Aw.  Erik’s all “Hi Daddy!” ❤

And we have to see Duchess! She’s an adult now!
Screenshot-2
Aw… little dog in big bed is cute, but between the MANY babies in this generation and the TERRIBLE HATE FOREVER daycare, well, she’s in the wrong home for disliking children.  I still love me some Duchess.  ❤

And here’s Evie, sans glasses… showing us her bookworm trait!
Screenshot-3
I think her eyes are kinda weird.  Just sayin’… but I LOVE HER!

Ellen:  Wut?
Screenshot-4
I swear, I was JUST about to sit down when *BREAKS*  Honest.

Sure Ellen… Sure.

A broken computer doesn’t phase dear Elaine.
Screenshot-5
*Plink Plink Plink* I am virtuoso!  (are not)  You’re super cute!

Daisy, while working on her mixology skill… WOOHOO!
Screenshot-6
I HAVE TO PEE!   *CLAP CLAP CLAP*
Oh Simmies… You’re so endearing.

While Daisy applauds her need to tinkle, I find Evie and Elaine…
Screenshot-7
I have no idea where they think they’re going, or why they’re out here.
*Note: I found them inside and totally normal boring just moments later.
Still, way fun to see their outerwear!  YAY!

Aw… Erik…
Screenshot-8
You’re the cutest!

Erik and Daisy work on da skillz…
Screenshot-9

Daisy!  Mixology almost mastered!
Screenshot-10

MASTERED!
Screenshot-12
mastered!
Daisy: PuhLEEZ let me stop skilling and FEED ME!
Screenshot-13

Starving Daisy spots one cute Erik!
Screenshot-14

Here I test save, to see if the problems I’ve been having with the Zale save have been resolved!  Success!  The save worked!

*Back to post* Have we even seen Evan?
Well, here he is…
Screenshot-15
…sleeping in his stocking cap, dreaming of rubbish.  Oh Evan… I wanted to love you so much, since it should be a male heir…   …   …

Everyone was asleep or boringly milling about, but I found Gustave!  Doing this!
Screenshot-16
So… I’m the first to admit I’m no snow angel expert, but I’m PRETTY DAMN SURE you aren’t supposed to make them face down, Mr. Frosty Face.

But YAY!  Snowman!   *ahem* apparently I didn’t take a picture of his snowman.  It was just the normal one, so I guess I missed it… sorry

HI ELLEN!
Screenshot-17

HI ELLEN’S THOUGHTS!
Screenshot-18
So… This was funny to me.  I saw the floating thought bubble and thought someone was glitched, so I clicked everyone, just to realize that Bunk Bed Ellen’s thoughts were transcending the house level.  Cool man.  Cool.  She was thinking about the trampoline – HA!

Just after Ellen’s floating thoughts, we find Evie!
Screenshot-19
Evie: Aw Dude!  Half-eaten Cake!  FTW!   No… No Evie, you shouldn’t eat that…
Screenshot-20
Eats leftover cake… two bites in and it was GONE.  Erm.  Evie?  Forget leftover cake, you have the TINIEST nose.  (In the picture above, she looks FINE… actually, it looks like it might be a little prominent.  But trust me, face front, she’s noseless.)  But that nose may be even AWESOME (because she is awesome) but seriously.  You can barely tell she has a nose unless you’re zoomed in like this.  She has mini nose.  Is it Daisy’s/Traci’s?  It’s not Gustave’s… After review of Gustave’s offspring *ELLENCOUGHELLEN* he has a schnooz.  So this tiny nose must be Daisy’s.

But then we find Ellen (with a very respectable nose) being INCREDIBLY cute:Screenshot-21
Hello Adorable Ellen!!!

Oh, the pup?  She’s playing…
Screenshot-22
Oh, Lovely Puppy… NO!  DO NOT PLAY IN NASTAY POTTY PUDDLES!

Then oh shit… The daycare SPAWN FROM HELL arrive….
Screenshot-23

Daisy: Hey, I just want to fix the broken computer that everyone is complaining about… Never mind I got electrocuted TWICE when trying to repair it last time.  It has to go better this time around, right?
Screenshot-25
*Daisy shows off her more grown up outfit, and starts dressing more appropriately… UNTIL… WELL SHIT.
Screenshot-24

Scorched Daisy witness daycare fun at its finest!
Screenshot-26
Yeah, you guys have fun with that…
PEACE!
Screenshot-27
Daisy: House smells gud 😀
But yeah, BYE BOYZ!  Have fun with the daycare! HATE HATE HATE!
So I NEVER get tired of Daisy enjoying her rebel ride!
Screenshot-28
And COOL!  She heads to the salon!
Hey!  Look what I learned from Sammy! o.O PUT LIGHTS IN THE SALON!Screenshot-29
That is SOOO much better!

Daisy: OW OW OW OOOooooow!
Screenshot-30
GNOME OF THE WRIST!
Fight the power
Yeah Daisy!  WOOO!
Gnome of the Wrist BITCHES!
Screenshot-31
Snizzap!

YEAH!  DAISY!  Daisy?  Dais?
Screenshot-32
You okay?  You rebellious badass you…
DOWN SHE GOES!
Screenshot-33
Oh Daisy.  I can relate to your coward trait.  I too, am chicken shit.  But I have MANY tattoos, and I never made this unsightly face afterwards… But I still love you ❤

After Daisy proved to be too weeny for the tattoo, she arrived home to:
Screenshot-34
Leon Offspring!  He followed a Zale teen home…
So did THIS one!
Screenshot-35
He looks pretty good from the front, but he also suffers from noseless-ness…
Screenshot-36
See?  He could never marry in.  But I like all the Offspring!

Daisy, having mastered Mixology skill, and only needing moola for her LTW, helps out with the daycare.
Screenshot-37
Aw, little Perdue kiddos.  ❤

Hey!  This little Simmie is Kayla Offspring.  I invited her to the party (?) because she’s Evan’s “romantic interest”
Screenshot-38
I have no idea where she got that dress, and this is MY game, so I’m jealous.

Wait?  Did I mention a party?
Indeed!  PARTY!
Screenshot-39
Hi Drake!!!

Oh wait.  Did I say Kayla was Evan’s romantic interest?  JUST KIDDING!  It was Felicity…!
Screenshot-40
There she is!  Felicity! Evan’s RI!  She’s CUTE!  Kayla?  She crashed the party.  I only invited Zales and Felicity.  Silly adorable Kayla.

Fatne Sighting!
Screenshot-41
Daph:  I HAVE SALAD!  LET ME IN!  SHOULD I SHOVE IT THROUGH THE WINDOW?!?
Screenshot-42
Wise Half Moon says: “Remember the love we all had for Daphne.”

Daphne waits for acceptance.  Daph:  WELCOME ME AND MY SALAD!!
I’m kinda sorry, Daph.  I ❤ ‘d you once…
Screenshot-43
Those kids doing homework at a PARTY – Leon & Frankie Offspring.  Good to know my plopped in family of “Offspring” are surviving so nicely…

NOTE: Kayla the crasher and Felicity, Evan’s “romantic interest” heartfarted.  Felicity heartfarted Evie, and Kayla heartfarted Ellen.  I’m not sure if that means my Offspring family females are gay, or if the Zale females are gay!  This is the one time I wish I had a mod to figure out who wants what.  I’m pretty sure Abraham Zale was gay… maybe we all understand Angelica and her guitar a little better?  Beard much?!?  I’m over thinking it…

Drake: GAG!Screenshot-44
GROSS!  Don’t they have a maid?  When I lived here we had a maid.
STUF DRAKE!  Our MAID SUCKS, and this FAMILY IS BUSY!  Go GAG elsewhere.  Cyrus prefers to vomit in the plant.  Feel free.  Think of it as fertilizer.

Hey!  It’s a Dahlia sighting!
Screenshot-45
Yeah… she looks super weird.  But she’s insane… so *all together (Hide the fear in your voice now)…* HI DAHLIA!
*Note: I actually love her.  She was a gorgeous teen, and we only saw her briefly as YA – and she got some heir votes.  The Zale Clan would’ve done just as well if she won instead of Daisy.  Is she as “pretty”?  No.  But she’s awesome.

Just after the Dahlia sighting, we find Dane too!
Screenshot-46
HAI DANE!  I always neglected loved you!

But this IS a party!  Erik goes first!
Screenshot-47
Screenshot-48
Screenshot-49
PARTAY!
Screenshot-50
Screenshot-51
Elaine goes next!
She looks very shy, and one beautiful Daisy looks awfully non-photogenic.  It’s okay Dais, happens to us all on occasion.
Screenshot-52
Screenshot-53
PARTAY!!Screenshot-55
Elaine: DERP!
Screenshot-56
Sparkle Dance!
Screenshot-57
So at this point, everyone is in everyone’s way to reach that which is the glorious cake.

Daph?  She has no problem finding cake.
Screenshot-58
OMNOMONOMNOMNOM!

You eat up Fatne.

Aged up Erik: Hi.  You’re tall… (Elaine heading to the dresser to “edit outfit”)
Screenshot-61
…Do you have a nose?  Cuz noses are important… Zales have incense, and everyone who comes near this room thinks it smells amazing…
Aw Erik… You’re cute.  Here’s ERIK!  I LOVE his orange hair tips!
Screenshot-59
Erik rolled DIVA (I HATE DIVA!) to join Grumpy and Friendly – which I already thought were incompatible… you go Erik.  This next generation is supposed to be male, but as cute as you look, your traits SUCK (And I don’t really feel the love for Evan either…)  I feel like Erik looks a LOT like Gustave, but with Daisy’s hair color.  He’s AWFULLY cute though.  I do have some love for Erik ❤

Here’s Elaine!
Screenshot-60
She grew up in the braids we used for Evie, so we changed them to these fine braids instead!  And I felt they suited her new EMO (over emotional) trait which joins neurotic and hates the outdoors.  I think she looks a LOT like a female Gustave.  With Daisy’s hair.  But I like her tons too!  I’m telling you, this entire generation is badass.  ❤

So!  With that said!  My save games have been working better (although slow and strange… it goes not responding only to reopen seconds later and be fine…(-_-)  ) So I’m not comfortable with their little lives right now, but at least it’s working!  Hurrah!  I ❤ you all for helping me recover my Zales.  They’re super happy to see you!

SO!  Daisy FINALLY got her tattoo, we only need, like, $5K to buy Daisy’s Exclusive Dive and she mastered mixology this time!  WOOOOOOO!  So next time I’m CERTAIN she’ll complete her LTW!  First time since the FOUNDER (that’s so sad…)  But that’s just how badass Daisy is!  Come see us again soon, yeah?

And again – If you’re not reading Amy’s, Julia’s and Sammy’s Blogs – well, you’re MISSING THE F&CK out.  So do it, okay!?!  HUGS and Cheers!  Happy Simming!

Note: I’m still afraid the Zales will die at any moment, but thanks to everyone who helped me get them back up and running.  I appreciate you!

Homeward Bound – An Incredible Post 4.8

Hi there!  Welcome back!  Last time the Zales threw an EPIC party, Evan aged to teenager, Daisy worked hard on her LTW, Elaine & Erik toddlerfied, and that about sums it up!  Let’s enjoy a brand new post, shall we!?!

First – I COMPLETELY forgot that we had a basement.  I was trying to cram all the Daisy/Gustave spawn on the main floor of the house, as well as maintaining some sort of nursery type place for the demon spawn from hell children that arrive for the daycare!  Well!  I have a basement, and I redecorated it from fatty Daphne’s room to a room for Evie and Ellen.  SO MUCH BETTER.
ScreenshotSee?  So great.

Evan actually turns out to be helpful!  Yay for teenagers!
Screenshot-2

Did I say helpful?  JUST KIDDING!
Screenshot-3
BOO FOR IDIOTS!  FEED HER!

Duchess finds a mysterious puddle!
Screenshot-4
A LARGE mysterious puddle!  Look at her ears!  ❤

Daisy sings the love song she learned in France while making pancakes… She is terribly off key.
Screenshot-5
NooBOOOOOoooooo Oh NooooOBOOOOOOOOO!
Screenshot-6
NooboooOO!OOO!O!OOoo  Oh NOOOBOOBOOBOBOOOOO **SCREECH**
Terrible.  Cute, but terrible.  Gustave sings it all the time too, but when he does, it’s lovely.

Evie and Daisy meet at the table.
Screenshot-7
Daisy: I love that you’re doing your homework, however, you should eat breakfast.
Evie: Is it fried chicken?
Screenshot-8
Daisy:  No.  OMNOMOMNOM It’sh pancakesh…
Screenshot-9
Wut kindsha mom wuh I be *snarf* if I madshe shicken for breafash. *snort chomp shovel*

Calling the household to the meal is AWESOME!
Screenshot-11
Pancakesh for EVERYONE!

Except Duchess…
Screenshot-10
…she’s cute as ever and chases her tail.  Awwww.

So little Erik?  His IF is pretty cute…
Screenshot-12
…for a creepy ass IF that may or may not EAT HIM later.  Ugh.  Hate those things.

But I love little Orange Erik
Screenshot-13
And Elaine is teaching herself to walk in the walker just there.  Awww.  Love ALL the children in this generation!

And I love little Sea Foam Elaine
Screenshot-14
Gus: **SNIIIIFFFFFF** you smell gud.
Idiot Sims are so weird… -_-

SO!  I was catching up with Amy and Julia – and I decided the Zales needed to get out more.  For entertainment’s sake.  So I have Daisy invite Ellen, Evie, Evan, Gustave & Duchess to the winter festival.  Toddlers don’t have anything to do there, and I thought Duchess might have a nice time.  Never have I been so wrong.
Screenshot-15
Oh – well, so we saw Gus up there huffing Elaine- so since he had her in his arms when Daisy invites him to the festival he carries HER along too.  Even though she wasn’t on the invite list.  Party Crasher Elaine, ladies and gentleman.

And SCATTER!
Screenshot-16
(BTW – See Gustave’s phone ringing?  It rang the ENTIRE taxi ride.  I can only imagine how annoying that was for the taxi driver)

So OMG, I didn’t even want Gustave to bring Elaine, but so much cute!:
Screenshot-17
And beautiful town’s winter sunset in the background!  Aw.

So, I brought Duchess.  I thought she’d have fun with all the people and stuff…
Screenshot-18
Oh dear!  The snow is over her little puppy head!

I’m sorry I brought you little baby puppy!
Screenshot-19
Here she is, just trying to walk around.  HA!

Back to the festival – Fairy Ice Skating FAIL!
Screenshot-20
Ummm, she’s not skating.  She’s fairy floating.

So while I was entertained by fairy ice skating, I was worried about little Duchess, and I found her whimpering in the snow.
Screenshot-21
See that tiny slightly lighter mound?  Lower left?  That’s little Duchess.  So I clicked: GO HOME  I have never been so wrong.
Here she is… Going home.
Screenshot-22
Running loose in the streets… and she’s just a baby!
Screenshot-23
Aw, peanut!  I’m sorry this is your ISBI life.  I love you!  Run Duchess, RUN!
Screenshot-24
Oh… Oh no.  There she is, a little under-the-snow puppy tunneling her way home.  Do you see the house up there?  The pink house on the top of the hill?  That’s the Zales neighbor.  Poor Duchess.  I do genuinely care for Duchess.  I thought she’d have fun.

And well, I never wanted Elaine to attend this festival in the first place.  YOU BROUGHT HER!
Screenshot-25
FEED HER YOU IDIOT!

Evan and Evie make a snowman!
Screenshot-26
Evan: Our snowman could use makeup.
Evie: I think Elaine is crying.

Where’s Ellen?
“Skating”
Screenshot-27
Hmm, I’m not so sure she’s having fun…
Screenshot-28What?  What is that behind her?  A Fairy?  OMG!  They don’t skate!
Screenshot-29
Look at them!  They just fly in circles!  FAIL!

Ellen, wonders why she can’t float around in circles.  WAY EASIER than skating…
Screenshot-30
Her poor little face… 😦

Speaking of faces, Daisy gets her painted!
Screenshot-31
Aw, I love the snowflake paint.

So wait… where’s Duchess the puppy?
Screenshot-32
Still making the incredible journey.
I’m SO SAD that I had Daisy bring her to the festival… And then I’m EVEN MORE SAD that I clicked “go home”.  That was wrong.  That was very very wrong.

Well, the baby (who shouldn’t even be here) is about to pass out, so we’ll head home.
Screenshot-33
Let’s check in with the rest of the family, shall we?

Evie is first…
Screenshot-34
Hmm, she decided to send herself home…
Let’s check on Ellen!
Screenshot-35
Hmm… she’s ALSO on her way home!
How about Evan?!?
Screenshot-36
He’s being left out.  That’s too bad.
Well, let’s find Gustave!
Screenshot-37
He’s TEARING IT UP!  YAY GUSTAVE!!

So… where’s the puppy?  Didn’t she head home a long while ago?
Screenshot-38
Yes.  There she is.  The little pathetic dot just to the left of the tree.  I’m so sorry little puppy.  I knew you’d be happier at home – but I didn’t realize how terrible it would be to GET HOME.  I thought you’d catch a cab?  ilu. ❤

Well, like previously mentioned, I decided to round up the family and head home.  Nearly all of the family was either already home, or on their way home…and…well… welcome HOME!
Screenshot-39This is what Daisy comes home to.  Can you imagine?  You just wanted a nice family outing, you get home and well, everyone NEEDS something.  But where’s the puppy?!?  DUCHESS!?!

Duchess: I’m SO tired!
Screenshot-41
Oh baby!  You’re so small, and travelled so far!  Are you okay?
Red plumbob, captured on purpose says NO!
Screenshot-42
(You can’t even see her… poor little incredible journey.)

Daisy to the rescue!
Screenshot-40
*NOTE: I genuinely thought Duchess would have fun at the festival.  I’M SO SORRY!*
Screenshot-43
OMG YAY!
Home safe!
Screenshot-44
I have never been so happy to see Daisy carrying Duchess.  I thought we’d lose her.

In the meantime, Erik screams for no reason…
Screenshot-45
Erik screams for no reason in the Orange/Sea Foam room.  And although he is genuinely screaming for no reason in this room, I just wanted to show you this room.

Poor Duchess recovers from her Incredible Journey while being Homeward Bound by passing out… with her eyes open…
Screenshot-46
…inches from her bed.  Poor thing.  😦

But, it’s a brand new day, and Evan aims to be helpful again!
Screenshot-47
He’s so cute in his pajamas, and Evie looks like she’s heading outside!

Cyrus decides it’s time to ice skate on the koi…
Screenshot-48
Ha!  Love it!

And Evie shows us her bookworm trait!
Screenshot-49
Evie:  I’m trying to read “Logical Fallacies You Can Really Believe” SHUT UP THE BABIES!

Evan is like father/like son
Screenshot-50
FEED HER YOU IDIOT!
Screenshot-51
PLEASE!!!
Screenshot-52OMFG!  You are awesome Evan.  A little slow, but awesome.  Thank you for feeding her.

Ellen is TOO DAMN CUTE
Screenshot-53
And she spies THIS!
Screenshot-54
Which of my creepy Sims made that!?!  *shudder*

Ahem, Sir?  Maid?  Excuse me…
Screenshot-55
Where did you find that donut?
*NOTE: must fire maid IMMEDIATELY!

Well!  What do we have here?  Is that Daphne?!?
Screenshot-56
Fatne collides with Daisy while Daisy’s trying to do the laundry.  Since donut eating maid, and every maid before and since, FAILS TO GRASP THE CONCEPT OF LAUNDRY!
But why is Daphfatne here to begin with?
BIRTHDAYS!
Screenshot-57
It’s Cyrus’ elder birthday, and Gustave’s adult birthday!  Look at our handsome men and their cakes!
PARTY PICTURES!
Screenshot-58
Above Left to right; Evan, Gustave, Daphne, Drake, and Evie!
Screenshot-59
Dane shows up too!  And I think he brought hotdogs!
Screenshot-60
Cyrus contemplates the meaning of life.
And the need to pee.
And cake.
And from his perspective: Family
Screenshot-62
Look at them… Aw… That’s a damn fine party.
Gustave ages first…
Screenshot-63
Gus: I look SO FINE!
Drake: OMGYAYBROINLAWBDAYISBESTEVAR!!!!
Seriously Drake.  Calm down.
And yes, Gustave.  You look damn fine indeed.

Cyrus’ turn!
Screenshot-64
Daisy:  No shits given.
Cyrus: Sparkles.
Someone’s Hand: PHOTOBOMB!
Cyrus:  I ROCK OLD MAN!
Screenshot-65
Yes Cyrus.  Yes you do.
Cyrus: OMG I need to put this cake down RIGHT NOW!  I have to PEE!
Screenshot-66
Cyrus:  PEE NOW?
Screenshot-67
Well, a bathroom would’ve been better… AND LOOK!
Screenshot-68
Your ex-wife showed up JUST IN TIME to watch you piss yourself in your old age.  And, even though I’m reluctant to admit it, Traci looks pretty good.  But It’s okay, the day after she moved in with you as a youngster, she pissed herself.  So it has gone full circle.

Erm.. Evan?  You okay?
Screenshot-69
Evan pisses himself.  Do you see everyone’s faces? Cuz LOL!
Dane: Hey Mom?  It’s kinda weird to see you…
Traci:  Evan?  Evan?!? Bathroom maybe?
Drake: That’s disgusting.

This picture below?  It’s Daisy.  Praising the puppy
Screenshot-70
Because even snow covered puppy knows where to potty.

I love puppy
Screenshot-71
Duchess is the cutest thing ever…

…speaking of cute, Cyrus rolls a wish for a cane!
Screenshot-72
I grant it!  Look how cute he is now that he’s showered.  Aw…

OMG MORE PEE FAILS!
Screenshot-73Evie!  Shame on you peeing on your grandpa’s laundry!  There are FIVE TOILETS in this LITTLE HOUSE… FIND ONE NEXT TIME!

Traci seems to have moved back in… since she’s STILL HERE, and it’s 6:17 the morning after the party…
Screenshot-74
Traci: …what? I used to live here.  Leave me alone.  My house.  Mine.

Daisy pretends Traci isn’t trying to come back home, and remembers the family portrait from the winter festival…
Screenshot-75
…It’s too bad Erik isn’t present, or perhaps it’s too bad Elaine was dragged there by Gustave… but it’s still adorbs!  ❤  Daisy places it on the bar where she can see it all the time.

OMG!  Evan has prom!
Screenshot-76
He sat in the limo looking VERY much like our awkward founder Abraham… then he X’ed out the “go to prom” action all on his own, and got out of the limo.  I then sent him to prom.  I don’t even think it was cheating because I don’t recall using any teen action for him.  YAY!

Evan’s Prom!
Evan Prom Felicity
Felicity? Who’s Felicity!  She’s an “Offspring”!  What fun!
Prom Dancing
Prom wardrobe malfunction
He also won prom king due to rigged votes.  But everyone’s Sim is always prom king or queen, so I chose to ignore it.

So all this time, Traci has STILL been in the house.  It’s been AGES since the party, but she won’t leave.  I finally have to ask Daisy to send her on her way.
Screenshot-77
As soon as Traci left, Daisy got the moodlet for throwing a great party!  At last!

I also finally remembered that Daisy has been carrying around the remains of that random townie Qiana who both crashed the party, and then died at the party, for “Spooky Day” and Evan’s birthday.  I decide that Daisy should head to the cemetery to respectfully deposit the remains.
Screenshot-78
Daisy appears very brave, but shows this:
Creepy Graveyard
I agree Daisy.  I agree.
We promptly lay Qiana’s remains to rest, and are ready to scurry off, but decide now is as good a place as any to dispose of the IF’s in her inventory.
Screenshot-79
Ugh. So Creepy!

And we’re just about to head out when we see someone else in the graveyard!
Screenshot-80
It’s Dane!  He blew a kiss to the remains laid to rest here.  Someone Skullsomething.  It was super weird.

Since Daisy is a coward, and already pushing herself to the max, we decide to visit Daisy’s Exclusive Dive.
Screenshot-81
Someone let a cat in who destroyed a bar stool.  Daisy is not happy.  I replace the ruined stool, and Daisy takes over as mixologist!
Screenshot-82
Look at her!  ❤ Daisy!  She had rolled a wish to make a perfect drink, and this is when she completed it!
But the mixologist she replaced, Alphonso Shook – well…
Screenshot-83
…Alphonso:  O.O  Thems some BOOBS!
I know Alphonso – I know, but SERIOUSLY Daisy.  Stand up a bit.  Really.
Cycl0n3 then orders a drink…
Screenshot-84
Since everyone likes him, except me, I thought I’d show him enjoying a fine, flammable drink.  It’s rated “outstanding” then the bar closes and she earned $427.  Not bad!

Daisy gets home and gives some love to her very own little mini Daisy.
Screenshot-85
They’re not exactly alike, but still.  And awww…

Then she works on Erik on the potty!
Screenshot-86

And it just gets SO GROSS!
Screenshot-89
Overflow potty lake!  NASTAY!

And… with this room filled with potty – people drop off their children for daycare!
Screenshot-87
New people!  The Beauchamp family has apparently outgrown our services, but here’s the new crew!  Left to right:  Melanie Perdue, Kristoffer Perdue, and Angelina Perdue.  Dropped off by Miranda Shonda and Javon Reese.  Triplets again?!?

OMG THERE’S ANOTHER ONE!
Screenshot-88
Here is Eddie Perdue.  I didn’t pay attention to who dropped him off.
There are now SIX toddlers, two children, a teen, and two adults in the house who I can’t control.  I will confess.  It was not fun.  And I don’t mean that in a fun not fun sort of way.  Like games can be challenging and hard, and you can be like WHEW, that was difficult, but you still had fun?  I hated every single second of this.  Everyone kept plugging their ears, and I wished I could too.  I HATE DAYCARE.  However!  I genuinely think it helps a non-modified town populate!  I mean, the Offspring family has at least one teenager, so they’ve outgrown the daycare, but Evan dated one at prom!  And we had Beauchamp toddlers, and now Perdue toddlers!  As much as I hate the daycare, I think it does pretty awesome things to the spawning population of a town that runs without mods.

Moving on!

The maid grabs a juice box and sits down with Daisy and tells her she should get some sleep.
Screenshot-90
Daisy chokes on her old mac n cheese!  Hey!  Maid!  Quit eating our food and clean up potty lake over there!  Get busy!
Spoiler:  He left without cleaning it up.  I hate him.

And then!  Birthdays!  Duchess goes first!
Screenshot-91
Screenshot-92
Screenshot-93
OMG she’s so damn cute!
And small!
Screenshot-94
Gustave thinks her birthday is BEYOND AWESOME! :-O

So forgetting Duchess’ birthday was totally okay… but it was Ellen’s too!
Screenshot-95
Oops…!
Screenshot-96
And if it was Ellen’s… it was Evie’s…
Screenshot-97
Screenshot-98

So.  I hereby made my first (and pathetic) attempt at trait cards for my Simmies.
Ellen had Natural Cook locked in.  Here she is!
Ellen
She’s unique looking, and I genuinely like her!  Yay trait card!

Evie had Charismatic locked in (How much did I score with locked in traits?  Cooking and Charisma?  Could’ve been SOO much worse!)
Evie
I’m sorry, but Evie is a bad ass, and I hope her trait card captured that.
**LATE EDIT:  Evie actually likes lobster thermidore, not chili con carne.  Oops.

So… Fail.  Red wavy underline not liking “Evie” captured is a fail.  Different sized fonts… fail.  HOWEVER!  I still love them both, and I love their trait cards.  So deal with my fail.  It was my first time!

I wanted to go boy/girl/boy/girl so technically it would be a boy’s turn… but both Evie and Ellen are pretty spectacular…  And Erik & Elaine are in the running.  Might have to capture more grown up spoiler pics of them for heir poll?  Or only include Evan, Ellen & Evie.  Who knows!

This was a VERY LONG (and very exhausting) post, and I’m totally over it.  So hey.  Next time something will happen, I’m sure of it.  Until then, Cheers, hugs, <3s and Happy Simming!

One Fine Party 4.7

Hi!  Look!  It’s another post!  I’m sure you’re all SHOCKED.  But IRL I attended a funeral today, and nothing cheers me up like Those Silly Zales!  Last time, Daisy popped out a couple new spawn, Erik & Elaine – the daycare was operational and moderately successful!  Daisy took the family to the Summer Festival, Evie and Ellen had their child birthday and were cute as could be.  Daisy worked her butt off forever, and I put her bed with much affection.  Let us all enjoy the Zales some more!

FIRST!  This happened LAST time, and I forgot. 
mad scientist
So I thought that the Creature Cross Breeder – or whatever it’s called, was the top of the science career – since it’s an LTW?  But apparently it’s not!  Cyrus topped his career.  LaserKatt pointed out that Daisy and her father, Cyrus, were in the same life stage!  Indeed they are, and I thought Cyrus was close to elder, but he had like, SEVEN days left to elderhood!  YAY!  Cuz I need his bucks if we’re to buy Daisy’s Exclusive Dive – for over $96k.

So, back to THIS post – it begins like this…
hooker
It would, would it not?  Freakin’ hooker.  I HATE YOU TRACI ZALE!  She’s terrible!

But as terrible as Traci is…
Screenshot
Duchess (Archer reference?  Anyone?) is cute!  I LOVE this puppy!

And for the first time in an ISBI, both Ellen and Evie made it on the see-saw!
Screenshot-2
They’re super cute too!

Hey look!  Daisy’s up!  After a nice, long sleep!
Screenshot-3

As the serenity of sleep fades, Daisy remembers…
Screenshot-4
WHAT IS MY LIFE!  *RAGE!*
Oh Daisy.  I love you.  I’m sorry – kinda.  If you weren’t so freakin’ amazing, your life would be easier.

Duchess is also in a pickle…
Screenshot-5
She’s in the wrong house if she doesn’t like crying children.  BUT DAMN if tiny puppy isn’t cute in huge bed.  ❤

Due to the full moon activity, some ghosts are bound to come around. 
It’s okay Daisy!  It’s only Changpu!
Screenshot-6
Daisy:  House smells great.  OMG GHOST!
ONLY CHANGPU MY ASS!
Screenshot-7
SKEEERRRY!
Screenshot-8
*faints*
Poor Daisy… >.<
Thankfully, she seemed to come to terms with the ghosts in the house, and didn’t seem to freak out TOO much when…
Screenshot-9
FOUNDER SIGHTING!  Abe appears!!!  ❤

Then, still in the full moon glow, at 4:53 am,
Screenshot-10
Daisy and Gus enjoy a fine breakfast.  Daisy made fresh waffles, but Gustave ate old Goopy Carbonara.  No one cares.

SOMEONE (ghost Abe) broke the computer, and Daisy rolls a wish to repair it!
Screenshot-11
No problem!  She won’t die! She’s pretty great at fixing things…

Eep.
Screenshot-12
Well, I try again – I mean, it can’t happen again can it?
Screenshot-14
Hmm, yes it can.  Author’s Note:  I am officially LUCKY she didn’t die!  I think we should stop this now.
Hello, repairperson?
Screenshot-15
Please fix our computer… be careful, it bytes!  (har dee har har)

And then it was SPOOKY DAY!  Daisy rolls a wish to throw a costume party, so I lock it in!  Unfortunately EVERYONE ELSE rolled a wish for a feast party.  Oh well – Daisy is the boss of this show, so enjoy the costumes!
Author’s Note: why have I never done this before?  It’s amazing!
Gustave is a HOT DOG!  A freakin’ HOT DOG! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
Screenshot-18

Daisy, a police woman (kinda ironic, since she’s the be all and end all of what the house does)
Screenshot-19
Ellen?  Well, I don’t know what it is, but it’s SPOOKY! ❤
Screenshot-20
AND LMAO!  Evie is a cow plant!  And the cutest one in the world!  ❤
Screenshot-22
Evan opts for alien!  HA!
Screenshot-23
Cyrus goes for military attire, and so does some random party crasher.  NOT INVITED.

Hey look!  It’s Drake and Dahlia!
Screenshot-24
No costumes?
Oh, here we go!
Screenshot-25
Too much fun!  Drake the cat burglar, and Dahlia, well, she looks like herself, except in an INSANE way.  Which is oh-so-fitting for Dahlia!

Daisy and I try something new at the party, and serve some nectar we picked up in France.
Screenshot-26
Fun!

And apparently Daisy isn’t so fond of crazy-ass Dahlia.
Screenshot-27

OOPS!  It’s Alien’s Evan’s Birthday!
Screenshot-28
but I bet that’s a pretty great party, all your family is there, TONS of people rooting for you!
Screenshot-29
And in costume nonetheless!  YAY!  EVAN!  (Woman in the black ninja cat suit is TRACI!  I hate to admit she looks pretty badass.  But I still hate her forever.)

Evan had clumsy locked in (aw, like Abe, and Drake, and probably someone else I can’t recall right now.) which joins never nude, eccentric, and good.  NOW, let me just tell you, it’s hard to create a persona for a Sim with such nuance.  I opt to embrace eccentric, and the fact that he’d never be nude.  He wears a shirt in his swimwear, and full coverage in his sleepwear.  Eccentric is most obvious in his everyday.  Meet Teen Evan!
Screenshot-33
I can’t figure out his features, but he’s no one’s clone, so YAY!  I also like him very much.

So!  While Evan was planning his attire and changing his look…
Screenshot-31
Someone went and died.  I hoped it was Traci – cuz that would’ve been GREAT! (And I could bury her in the backyard…) But it wasn’t.  It was uninvited party crasher Qiana Grier.

Gus, well, he took it kinda hard… But umm..
Screenshot-35
…he’s a hot dog.  It’s kinda of hard to sympathize with a hot dog.

But you know what’s easy to sympathize with?  A sad puppy.
Screenshot-36
Stupid non-invited guest goes and dies and makes our puppy sad!
Screenshot-37
Aw Duchess.  ❤  It’s okay.

Death comes!
Screenshot-38
Daisy can’t take it!
Screenshot-39
And down she goes!
Screenshot-40
HA!  So dramatic.

And while Qiana is pleading with death, I get this pop-up!
yeah, like dying
Um, yes, Qiana.  You do need to GO HOME, and take care of a few things DIE!  I actually laughed out loud when I saw this.  Golden.

Insane Dahlia thinks this party was FANTASTIC!  YAY PARTY!  SOMEONE DIED!  YES! *CLAPCLAP*
Screenshot-42
Screenshot-43
Screenshot-44
*Shudder*  She scares me.

Holly Alto, the hot dog fairy *snort*, Drake, and his mother Traci –
Screenshot-45
– why YES, this WAS a fine party!  Must’ve been the frosty windows and the French nectar, cuz I gotta say, if I was at a party, and even a complete stranger died, I would not have had a nice time.  Sims are weird.

But look!  It’s Leif!  You’re the BESTEST Leif!
Screenshot-46
Leif:  HOT TUB! 

So, noteworthy, I never saw Leif in the hot tub, but when he showed up in the house, he was in his swimwear, so I’m hoping he hung out in there.  Or even in the garden sprinklers, which he loved!

Before going to bed after the very weird FINE party, Daisy rolled a wish to play tug-o-war with Duchess.
Screenshot-47
OMG, so much cute FTW.  Someone should fill that bowl – just sayin’.

After the Spooky Day party, and Evan’s birthday, it’s back to business!
Screenshot-48
Drinking Mixology makes Daisy very happy!
Screenshot-49
TADA!
Screenshot-50
YUM!  (HA!  DRUNK FACE!)

While Daisy works on mixology, here’s the family!
Screenshot-51
I think everyone but Cyrus is present above.  Erik and Elaine are in the swings, Evan thinks they’re swell, Gustave is standing around – like he always does -_- and Evie and Ellen are working on homework!  Aw, my Zales.  *affectionate sigh*

Family and Homework Time!  (I’m getting tired- so just look at the pictures okay?)
*Begin Family Cuteness*
Screenshot-52
Screenshot-53
Screenshot-54
Screenshot-55
Screenshot-56
*Family Cuteness Complete*

And what do we have here?!?  Cakes?  Birthdays?
Screenshot-58
WOOHOO!  Elaine Birthday!!
Everyone in sync: MOVE!
Screenshot-59
*BALD BABY SIGHTING*
NO REALLY MOVE!! *WAVES ARMS IN AIR!*
Screenshot-60
Screenshot-61
PUHLEEZE MOVE!!!  (WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM!)

Only Sim not freaking out because molecules are blocking their way?  Evie.  Evie FTW!

However!  Meet Elaine!
Screenshot-62
Holy crap.  Daisy’s hair was a surprise.  I see Gustave’s eyes again (very prevalent.) but OMG is she not the cutest!?!  Yes.  Yes she is!

And Erik!
Screenshot-64
Wow.  These two are spectacular.  I see Gustave’s eyes again, and I can’t really place anything else, but WOW!  I love every child of this generation.

I love the playpen.  Daisy loves the play pen.
Screenshot-65
Teach yourselves to talk!  (But holy crap how cute are they!)

Well!  That’s all I have for this post!  Daisy completed her mid-life crisis and never rolled a tattoo wish, so we’ll go get one next time.  She’s level NINE (and then some)! of mixology, and we have almost $80k in the bank, so we WILL complete her LTW!  (First time since the FOUNDER!)  Evan also has a prom coming up, but that may or may not happen next time.  Remember, I don’t play ahead at ALL – so when I saved and quit, Elaine and Erik were in the playpen.  So what’s next?  Your guess is as good as mine!  Come see us again soon, and Happy Simming!
