Did I ever tell you all of Banjo’s traits? I guess I didn’t. He’s insane, virtuoso, mooch, easily impressed and a dog person. Sometimes he rolls wishes to adopt a dog, but that will probably never happen. Not with the cats they already have. His LTW is to be a hit movie composer.
Cassius continues to be cute. However, he is super whiny.
Right now we have lag and my sims stand around until pee comes.
Eudore doesn’t bother to go to school and is scolded.
Cyril is sleeping on the floor as usual. -5
His role model, I’m sure.
Alvine is slowly warming up to the “superfluous” baby.
She is super old now. I guess game senses that I don’t want her to die.
Here comes one of Cassius’ infamous crying fits.
Now he’s cute again.
I’m fine, thanks.
Eudore followed Layla home after school on her last day as a teen. She wants to become a doctor, so I spent her free action on initiating a game of chess with Layla. Layla is Bay’s kid, in case you forgot, and they are cousins. Also next door neighbours, as you can see from the window.
She gained 1 logic point before it was time to do the birthday twirl.
I seem to have walked in on a domestic quarrel between Bay & Rade.
Never mind that now. Eudore is about to leave the house just as quickly as she came. We didn’t get to see much of her, but she managed to piss everyone off during her short time in the Cuckoo family.
Uh, NO, game.
Please and thank you.
Have fun in random household, Eudore!
“Thanks, I will.”
Do you know what still amuses me? Alvine during disasters.
“Bite me, earthquake!”
“I have goblins to kill and the world is my friggin’ oyster!”
“I wanna make big men do synchronized Village People dancing!”
“I wanna go down in flames, just like Jesse James!”
“Girls just wanna have fun, wooo oooo ooo”
“Meoooowrrrrauur!” *sexy claws*
Alvine, get a grip, there’s a guy suffocating under a collapsed roof.
I’m all for your carpe diem antics but you’re a FIRE CHIEF ffs!
“HAHAHA not really sorry!”
I give up.
And this kid. He has a condition.
Another Starkey offspring, to the right. Banjo got the good genes of the family.
Bay, why are you doing this to me? That was your mum’s sugar daddy for like 30 minutes.
Epitrix had two kittens, Felix & Fennel (a girl). Was that fast? Sometimes it feels like the kittens come too fast. I’m not sure I’ll continue with the cats much longer.
Felix is the fluffy one. Fennel will stay.
Enjoy this rare shot of Cyril not asleep.
Random visit at a random school mate’s house, and then birthday.
What a great play date this was.
At home it’s not much better. Cyril gets scolded for missing school – again.
Look who’s preggers again, now that the crib will be free soon!
“Take a time-out, son!”
“What?! I’m 13!”
“And besides, it’s my birthday and I’m really filthy and would like to take a shower before bed.”
“NOT GONNA HAPPEN!”
Timing is everything, Banjo, and yours is way off.
ONE STEP BEYOND! *skanking all night*
*mosh mosh mosh mosh*
I’ll name this baby after a band, I swear.
“Baby? What baby?”
“I’m the baby here! There can be no other babies while I’m baby!”
You will not be a baby forever, though.
“Surely you jest.”
Then, something happened that I had been hoping for since I found out Alvine reached the top of her career.
The ceremony where Alvine receives the Key to the Town from the mayor for her service.
I’ve read about it but I’ve never actually seen it happen.
Grandchild Layla is there to cheer her on! It cracks me up that Village People guy is there, all thankful and clapping, when Alvine did fuck all to save his friend from the rubble.
Some sims just want to watch the world burn.
Now, where were we. Yes, kneeling before the mayor! All rise.
Aaaaand… a My Little Pony! Just kidding, it’s the key to Glendalough of course!
It doesn’t seem to register among the other family members. They have no clue why they are forced to stand outside City Hall.
Brand new moodlet!
Savouring the moment! Well, that was fun. 🙂
Cyril left early to mock the simbots in the park.
They weren’t too keen on him either.
Anne stayed at home to have baby # 3.
Another boy, and true to my word he will be named after a band: Cortex.
He’s outdoorsy & friendly.
Cassius freed up the crib the same night.
He’s an absent-minded coward.
“Enough with the insults already!”
Aaaaand he’s grumpy.
“Honey, we have a new baby now.”
“Oh? What’s it called?”
“He’s called Cortex.”
YES THE SUBMARINE ADVENTURE FINALLY
Cleaning yourself up is a good start. Must be hard to age up from dirty diapers. 😦
Some girl rang Cyril.
I have to start talking on the phone like that.
At some point when I wasn’t watching, Alvine managed to develop a new romantic interest (in a bar, I presume) AND feel betrayed by him, apparently he had a fling with the lady behind her as well. She got the knife moodlet and then dropped the relationship two days later. At age 97. Livin la vida loca!
I have age set to 82, btw.
Next fire alarm: had a picnic in the park with random hottie.
Yet another fire alarm.
I feel a little bad for Banjo to be honest. This is supposed to be his generation and he’s always working, or washing dishes, taking a shower, feeding a toddler, talking to a cat, picking up trash, doing laundry, cleaning the toilet, repairing the shower or, if he’s really lucky, sleeping. He’s basically just a glorified maid. While Alvine seems to have no plans on slowing down. Being heir is hard work. Being the nutty grandmother isn’t.
So now we’re at -70
Next week will probably be pretty busy for me, since I’m in the process of selling my apartment. I procrastinate when I’m stressed out, and now I am very stressed out.. But I hope there won’t be a new chapter until I’m done with estate agents and cleaning and freaking out and defrosting the fridge and freaking out. Until then! 🙂
