Welcome to White Round 4, home of Platinum White, the neighbourhood's crazy cat lady!
This was the most snore-worthy week. I had to force myself to play this house, and it took me more than a week to slog through it.

We started off the week with trying to get Bailey and Heidi to mate and have kittens.

Let's just say it took a lot of tries - even though these two had a high relationship, they just weren't ready for babies, apparently.

Finally, she got pregnant and eventually had 3 kittens.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Meet Azriel, Mrs. Norris and Henrietta. 5 imaginary bonus points if you can tell where my nutty husband got the names. Well, except for Mrs. Norris, I named her, I guess.

Bailey spent the rest of the week, wondering how he entered into this fiery hell. LOL

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

That damn exercise bench on the back porch got hit by lightning FOUR times in one night! And nearly every time, the cats would go running to stand in the fire.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I was glad I finally caught a lightning strike on camera, but after the fourth time the bench got hit, I was just tired of it!

I guess Bailey did come around and start doing some fathering. I thought this picture was cute.

Mid-week, Gordon King paid the house a visit. He starts sneaking into the yard, and my first thought is - that's okay, I have a burglar alarm. I was wrong. He snuck in the door, then ran outside and stole my %*!$ car!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Even with the photographic evidence, the police just searched the house and told us he got away. Duh! I'll get him back some day - just wait until I get a cowplant! On an interesting side note, I married a burglar once - on the sims, lol - and they had every item they had ever stolen in their inventory. Remember that if you ever get a family portrait or something stolen.

Later in the week it snowed, and Platinum was too stupid to put on winter clothes to build a snowman. She didn't freeze though, too bad.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

But that outfit doesn't look very warm! I wish the sims had to shovel out their driveways like I had to do today. That would be good for about 3 body points. Plus, I'd enjoy watching them slave away.

Platinum is very worried about not meeting her LTW (Raise 20 Puppies or Kittens) and so am I.
Well, I'm not that worried. I don't really care either way, those cats are a pain in the butt - they empty 3 bowls of food in half a day!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

At least the three kittens grew up before this week was out - I think that's about 5 that she's raised so far. We might make it.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Token kitten aging picture.

And so we leave Platinum with all her cats. The younger ones will be leaving at the beginning of next week, one way or another. I'll probably give a couple to her sister Crystal, so she can make more best friends.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

*Snore* At least next Round, Off will be home from University and we'll probably have babies!
 
 
07 April 2007 @ 01:59 pm
I'm at Round 4 already!

This week flew by! We started out with Pitch and Almost moving in to the new home they have built on their gigantic lot. It is still not finished. But since Seasons has come to Prosperity, they thought it was prudent ot have a roof over their heads.

The first day, Ebony came home to visit. She told Almost about the great jobs that a girl can get if she goes to University.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Almost thought that was the greatest, so the next night she called a cab and left for Uni.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

See ya at Uni, Almost!

After she left, Pitch was bored out of his skull, and feeling a little lonely. Chris Blue was walking by his house and really had to pee, so she ran in and used his bathroom. Then she sat around and chatted with him for a little while.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

She told him that he should get a pet or two. He'd have company, and he could breed them and sell the pups for money! (He wants to earn $100,000)

The next night, after being promoted to Business Tycoon, he took himself to Planetary Pets and bought two new doggies!

Meet Shiva...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

and Ifrit.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I love the shots I got of their long Basset Hound ears flying in the wind!

Shiva LOVES Dagmar and runs out to the street every time the mail comes.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I'm surprised there arent little hearts over that picture, lol.

Shiva and Ifrit really hit it off, and soon the doghouse was a rockin'

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

You know what that mean - Basset puppies next round!

And Ruby is the first in line to buy one. She's already hanging around to make sure Shiva stays healthy while she's pregnant.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

That's it for these folks! I can't wait to see the puppies!
 
 
07 April 2007 @ 01:37 pm
By the time I got to this house, I really was about to pull my hair out. And not for the monotony of Uni. I do ike it sometimes, especially if I have a Romance sim who wants to screw their way through college.

First of all, I should have set Phlegm up with Bright's sister, Pansy. (I still might, but there will be lots of family tension!)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

She's got the black hair and everything. She's a Popularity Sim who wants to be a Hall of Famer. She's getting a head start on her fitness, and she's taking Drama with Warren Lewis. I wish they brought friends home from class in Uni.

Burnt Orange's girlfriend Tara Fancey lives in this dorm too. She cleaned up pretty well.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Even though she is a Romance sim, she has a good LTW of Professional Party Guest, so her and Burnt should do okay. She's taking Literature, so that she can read all those magazines she'll be appearing in with Paris Hilton and K-Fed. LOL

Mellow Yellow is in this dorm, too.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

She's a Knowledge sim who wants to be Criminal Mastermind, and she's taking Literature too.
I really want to set her up with this chickie.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Unfortunately, she's got the hots for fat Blondes, and keeps wanting to flirt with Royal Purple, who has children the same age as her! Perhaps she'll get set up with him, but stay in the closet and have a torrid lesbian affair with dormie girl. She could be her sugar momma! I'm sure I could work that out somehow.

The sisters White are also in this dorm.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Blanche is a Knowledge sim who's taking Physics so that she can become a Mad Scientist. She's working really hard, can't you tell.

This is the only picture I have of Snow White. Getting bitch-slapped by Dormie Girl (I can NOT remember her name! - I just call her the hot red head.)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

They had a knock-down, drag-out fight just before Snow's exam. Dormie girl kicked her ass! I like her for Mellow Yellow the more I see her!

So before I get to this group next time, I have to figure out how to work this out between Mellow and Dormie girl and Royal Purple. I'll probably just wing it though, like everything else!
 
 
07 April 2007 @ 01:13 pm
Welcome to House 2. Otherwise known as the house of love, as you can't walk three steps without seeing one of these couples making out!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Here is Shell Pink playing with the dorm pet, Pudgy. To refresh your memory, she is a Fortune Sim who wants to become a Criminal Mastermind. She's enrolled in the Literature program at Prosperity U.

Next up, her bethrothed, Warren Lewis.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Here he is writing his term paper. He's a Family Sim, who wants to Marry off 6 children. Guess there's going to be a population explosion. He's taking Drama.

Also in this house is Bright Purple, who is taking Philosophy.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

She's Popularity, and really wants to be a Celebrity Chef, even though all she makes are Ramen Noodles.

And lastly, Phlegm Yellow.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

He's a Family Sim who also wants to Marry off 6 children. I should have set him up with Warren and been done with it. He's taking Psychology, and his term paper is "The Effects of Bad Names on Children." It's sure to be published, lol.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Shell and Warren quickly rekindled their teenage love. Check out the nose on him! Yikes.
Since I lost the freckled skin tone, I'm going to hunt down that tutorial I saw on messing with genetics, and give her a proper pink skin tone gene to pass down to her children.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Token engagement picture. I hope he gets a better outfit than that to be married in!

I started to slowly push Bright and Phlegm together, but it just wasn't moving as fast as I'd like. They did okay... They had a first kiss.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

He gave her a brick that he made, lol.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

And then I saw THIS.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Um, no, I don't think so. Way to twist your whole body around to check her out. I bet she didn't notice that AT ALL!

So I took matters into my own hands and did a couple of makeovers.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Now let's see how they like it.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Tada! These two will be going off to have 6 children too.

Not much happened, I don't think a single mascot or streaker visited the dorm this time!
 
 
 
27 March 2007 @ 08:55 am
Since I try to follow through with what I say I'll do, I've tried not to cheat this college round. The poor sims have had to earn their own skill points, and do their assignments all by theirselves.

The first batch I played was Off White, Ebony Black, Burnt Orange and Cindy Gray. Here they are at the end of their second year. Yes, I know, my photography is amazing! LOL.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Off is taking Physics, and at the end of his 2nd year re-rolled his Aspiration. No more WooHoo with 20 different sims for him! Now he wants to become a Hall of Famer. Thank god. He trimmed his hair a little bit and now he kind of reminds me of Marilyn Manson.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Except better looking. He has a 4.0 average, of course. When I make my sims work, they do it right, lol. He has had a date with a college student townie named Erin Davidson. He likes her pink hair. I don't know what will become of them. I kind of want to set them up with other playables first, so he just may hit on Ebony or Cindy.

Ebony is taking Mathematics, also with a 4.0 average. Still no prospective mate for her, unless she gets Off. Here's a low quality picture of her leaving for her first class, post makeover.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I love her hair.

Burnt is taking Economics because he wants to be a Business Tycoon. He's had a few dates with his teen love Tara Fancey, who likes to fantasize about Jolly Green now that she's old enough to Woohoo!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This was only about the 11th time I saw her thinking about him! All I can say is ew. Well, I'm sure she's a Romance sim, so any male is fair game! She could have at least been thinking about her date, though. Tramp.

Burnt is also on the Dean's list with a 4.0 average.

Cindy is taking Biology. Her and Burnt seem to spend a lot of time together, so if I can hook Miss Fancey-pants up with someone else, I might put them together. We'll see. Here's a pic of her playing catch with Burnt -

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

He's just pelting the ball at her as hard as he can! Hmmm... maybe they won't be put together. My sims have enough problems without adding domestic violence to the mix.

Other than studying and going on a few dates, not too much happened. The Evil Cow Mascot came to visit and set the sprinkler off at least 7 times. The room was flooded!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Then, inexplicably, she got naked and walked around.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I have no idea what she was doing. Maybe she used the shower?? It was a first for me, anyway.
Usually you have no idea what the mascots look like under their costumes.

Funny picture:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Dagmar is always thinking about how pissed off she is at Goopy! (Goopy's makeover courtesy of Lemon Yellow while he was bored running his gym.

That's it for this week. University is excruciatingly boring for me right now. Even with manageable sized families of four or five, it's taking forever.
 
 
23 March 2007 @ 08:39 pm
Welcome to the home of Samuel Pink. Last time we saw him he was broken-hearted over the death of his wife Pale, and moved off to a home of his own.
So how does Sam start off his week? With some new dates of course.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Well, he tried anyway. Apparently, if you don't pay the matchmaker enough, she doesn't give you an actual date, and I haven't found out what the lowest amount is yet.

Well, the matchmaker introduced him to Noelani Sim, who is a sim that I had just made for fun one day.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

(She was his second date, that's why he's in pajamas.) I think he likes her, even if she isn't blonde!

So here's where it all went to hell. Since the matchmaker didn't actually give me a date, I poked around with boolprop to see if I could make them be on one. While I was looking at the Tombstone of Life and Death, I saw an option that said "Simulate Genetic Merger With..." My reaction was "Oooh - I bet a little picture like the one (when you have a kid with two sims) in bodyshop will show up and I can see what their babies look like.
Um - no. I clicked it and heard the chimes! Ooops!
Well, guess who's pregnant,lol!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Heehee! Yup, ol' Sammy is pregnant! After he got pregnant all he could think about was marriage. He didn't want to be a single father - he'd heard from his sister Hot that The Controller liked to hit the Random button during the birthing process.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So he prayed, and The Controller took pity on him and summoned the mother of his children. A few clicks later and...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Welcome Noelani Pink, newly made over to our prosperity. She's kinda pretty, isn't she?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The rest of the week passes quickly, they were busy working on their careers. Samuel is in the Natural Scientist career, I can't remember what level he is, and Noelani is in the Music career, she's on the third level, whichever that one is.

I also managed to lose the freckled skin tone, which I really didn't like anyway. I had a problem with my sims showing up with black or blank faces and in the end discovered it was my default brow replacements. So if you think Sam's skin tone has changed, your right!

Finally, the big day comes... (On Saturday night at about 7:00 - thank god!)
I admit, I always laugh at male sims in labour - having been through it myself, it's sweet payback, lol.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

*Labour music with Charity cackling in background*

And stupid me hit the Random button, on a house that only has about 800 bucks total.

Welcome Salmon, Flesh, and Coral. (Two boys and a girl, in that order)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Not the greatest picture, but I screwed with my game a lot this week. I'm just waiting to see what else I messed up.
I hope they come out with a baby fix soon, the last few hours of this round was spent playing with those things to stop them from crying! Phew! Noelani is on the brink of peeing her pants!

Next week, hopefully, University! Providing I get through it in time to post next Friday.

Welcome to White Round 3!
This is the infamous family with the very flammable nanny. I hope I get the spontaneously combusting nanny next time I hire one, lol.

First in this round, we have an Ugly Winter Clothing Fashion Show. First up is Snow White, she of skin as white as snow, hair as black as coal, and lips as... well, they're a pale pink, so I'll shut up.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Why does this outfit look like it's got sandals?? Yuck.

Next up is Blanche in a not-that-ugly outfit, but I took the pictures, and had to write something about them!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

As you can see, I've changed everyone's hair, I just kept trying hair on them until they clapped, so they got what they liked. I'm mostly mean to my sims, so I figured I'd be nice for once. And then I went back to the fire-breathing dragon that I usually am :)

For those of you who don't remember, Crystal White's life-long dream is to have 20 Simultaneous Pet Best Friends. This LTW SUCKS!! I have a No-Relationship Decay hack, because I'm a cheater, and I'm still having a hard time with this one! She doesn't have a single pet best friend YET! Ugh.

She has no problems meeting the pets. Every time she exercises out on the front step, they just walk up to her and look at her like "Hello, I'm here, make friends with me, already."

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

She plays with nearly every pet that comes along, but still no friends... I don't see me fulfilling this LTW this time.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Now that the girls are in college, maybe she'll adopt some pets. I could make her a crazy old cat lady!

Friday night Blanche left for college.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Snow wanted to be different, so she left while her mother was at work. What?! She had to finish her homework first! LOL

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So long girls, neither have a prospective mate yet, so when we hit Uni in a few turns, we'll see who we want to hook them up with. Just no Freckled guys. We already learned from their cousin Pale that it doesn't work!

After the girls left for college, Crystal spent the day setting the kitchen on fire. I had to put this picture in - it's the first time I've seen a fireman leave with no fire extinguisher on his back. Like he used it all up.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Maybe they do it all the time and I just don't notice - you never know with me!

Finally, a look at the lovely fountain in the upstairs hall.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This house must need some base heaters or something, even the inside fountains freeze in Winter, LOL.

Hopefully next round we'll make at least one best friend with a pet. Blah!
 
 
16 March 2007 @ 07:39 am
Welcome to Blue, Round 3.
The first thing I did this round was give Old a makeover, and put a roof on their house! I am getting pretty tired of the same old male hair!
Here is is new, snazzy self.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
For the next few days, we worked on the house a bit, and then we had a birthday.
Cobalt turned into a teen, and the first thing he did was invite his little friend Beverly Picard over for a visit... heeheehee.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
What's that I see in the background? That wouldn't be the Tombstone of Life and Death, and the Mind Control Mirror, would it?
Well, you know what that means...
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Happy Birthday, Beverly! Now get yourself over to the normal mirror, so I can make you presentable!
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Ahhh... that's better - what do you think, Cobalt?
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Looks good - now let's get to dating! Cobalt needs company at college!
Meanwhile, during the date... someone's icon suddenly disappears from the side panel. Crap! - I forgot to buy as many things as I could with his aspiration points before he kicked off! Grr...
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
A true Romance Sim to the end, Old's last thought before meeting Grim is of having one last kiss! We unceremoniously plopped his urn on the coffee table next to the door and carried on with the rest of the week. Poor Blue - I'm planning on making a proper memorial for him soon, just not this round.
Chris was upset because she didn't have anyone around, so we welcomed two new members to the family.
Suzi...
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
And Maxx...
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Right now they're still puppies that like to pee in the dining room, but a few days into the next round, they will be grown up and hopefully ready to have puppies of their own! (Big dogs can have babies with little ones, right? Just like in real life?)
And that ends Round 3 for the Blues. Next week we'll try for puppies and Cobalt will be leaving for college. Oh - I guess Navy grew up to teen this week too, but the poor thing got overlooked in all the chaos. The only thing I remember about his birthday is Cobalt cheering and blowing the noisemaker about two hours after he'd transitioned. I guess he didn't notice the empty kitchen and half-eaten cake - dolt. LOL
Until next round!
 
 
13 March 2007 @ 10:14 am
Welcome to the Greens.
You know who I'm talking about - aspiration failure Hot Pink and stinky Jolly Green being forced into holy matrimony by me!
Well they didn't hate each other THAT much, but they did take a while to warm up to each other. They didn't quite fight like cats and dogs...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

But the wolves around the neighbourhood did - and they didn't stop! Every time I turned around those darn wolves were fighting in the yard!

Jolly and Hot did eventually get married, although she packed his bags a few times... lol

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

But, like I said - I forced them into marriage and procreation. See?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

These two had hardly any money. They had to hock their cell phones, MP3 players and handhelds to buy goodies for their spawn.

After I finally got them to like each other, I quickly made them get pregnant - now if they hate each other it will just add interest :)

BUT... I shouldn't have hit "RANDOM" when Hot was giving birth. Let me introduce you to the green babies...

First we have Beryl Green...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

then we have Kelly Green.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

And apparently as an afterthought, Hot decided to pop out a little pink baby, too. I didn't know which baby was which, so I named them all green names, but once she's legal (in other words once she's selectable, lol) I'll use my nifty painting that I found somewhere to change her first name. Welcome Jade... who will soon be... well, I haven't quite thought of another "Pink" name yet, lol.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Other than that, they did a bit of gardening, a lot of "It's raining!" actions and shutting back and forth between babies. And neither one of them has a job yet (that I can remember). This family will be fun next round!

Hot is a family sim, so we'll wait and see if I want to have any more babies after I finish with these triplets!
