6.5 – Rock-a-bye Bowl

Hi again! Last time, Gillis and Gulliver aged up to teen and child respectively. Other than that, there were fails everywhere. Let’s see what the Cuckoos are up to now. Grieving, apparently:

Basil: *bawl*

Screenshot-469

Basil: “She was such a good chameleon!”

Etta: “I have no idea how a bad chameleon is, but I agree!”

Screenshot-470Banjo: “Something smells in here.”

Basil: “Move away from that terrarium or I’ll give you an F!”

(he’s a teacher)

Screenshot-472

Banjo: *mock cries* “Oh no, the reptile in captivity died! I feel emotions!”

Basil: “One more time and I’ll use your urn as a flower pot!”

Screenshot-474Banjo: “My great grand-daughter is actually starving so she can mourn over a reptile. That’s crazy.”

You just got here?

You know what’s better than random? Old Testament random.

Screenshot-476

Gillis: “I’m filthy, I should knock the dirt out of my clothes.”

Gulliver: “Not sure if will work.”

Screenshot-478

Gulliver: “Maybe if you let the school bus drag you through a few puddles.”

Screenshot-479

Gillis: “What an excellent idea! Thank you, little brother.”

Screenshot-481

Banjo: “I’mma throw this reptile out now.”

Talulah or Chaplin: “But we haven’t had a ceremony yet!”

Banjo: “Ok, dog, the reptile led a very unsatisfying life in a glass cage, he/she is now released of his/her burdens, may he/she become good potting soil. Are you happy?”

Talulah or Chaplin: “We should buy a wreath.”

Banjo: “I’ll pretend I didn’t hear that.”

Screenshot-482

8 AM, Etta decides it’s time for bed.

Screenshot-483

10 AM, she finally crawls into it.

Screenshot-484

10.15 AM, she rises for work.

Screenshot-485

Etta: “WHY DID YOU WAKE ME!?”

I didn’t, you set the alarm yourself.

Screenshot-487

Basil ffs!

-5

Screenshot-489

Etta ffs!

-5

Screenshot-493

Faun ffs!

Screenshot-494

GULLIVER! I believed in you!

(totally didn’t)

-5

Screenshot-495

Gulliver: “Do you think the man in the moon gets sick often because it’s so cold in space?”

Gillis: “Probably! You’re so smart, Gulliver, I would never have thought of that!”

Screenshot-496Random shots of school chums.

Screenshot-498

Purdy. Also a relative, if I’m not mistaken.

Screenshot-499Artemis Chun, not a relative. Also purdy.

Screenshot-501

Griffin is cute.

Screenshot-502

Yep, you’re cute.

“Oh stahp!”

Screenshot-503

“I was going to do something in here, I wonder what is was..”

May I suggest SLEEP?

Screenshot-504

Aw look at that cute little face. *pinches screen*

Faun: “I feel mildly offended.”

I didn’t mean YOU!

Faun: “Still mildly offended.”

Screenshot-505

(mel.: Row your boat)

Brush brush brush your dog gently down the back, furrily furrily furrily furrily have a sneeze attack

Screenshot-506Faun: “Since I’m knocked up ALL THE TIME and fed up with born out of wedlock shaming, and also my mum wants to see me married, whaddya say?”

Basil: “YESSSSSSSS!”

Screenshot-508

Faun: “Wanna get it over with right away?”

Basil: “May I sleep after?”

Faun: “You may.”

Basil: “Then HECK YES.”

Screenshot-509

*WHAM, 5000 lifetime happiness points for seeing Faun married*

15 seconds later: “I need to use the bathroom. Stop with the sparkles.”

๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Screenshot-510

“Dude, for serious. I have to powder my nose like right NOW.”

Screenshot-511

“MY BACK TEETH ARE SWIMMING!”

Alas, they will swim no more.

Screenshot-512

“Why is everybody staring at me?”

Screenshot-513

“We all need to go sometimes. ”

So true. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Screenshot-514

“Moove! I swear I’ll pee myself.”

Screenshot-515

Famous last words. Unfortunately Grim route failed so we didn’t get to see how Etta handled that she was about to “go”, not just to the bathroom but to the hereafter.

I guess she just refused?

Screenshot-149Faun: “Which one are you again, Talulah or Chaplin?”

Talulah or Chaplin: ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Screenshot-148

Talulah or Chaplin: “Miniscule human, you will grow up to care for me, will you not?”

Griffin: “Daah?”

Screenshot-146

Chaplin or Talulah: “I DESPERATELY NEED A HUMAN FRIEND!”

Griffin: “Wah wah wah!”

Screenshot-144

Gulliver makes his homework occasionally, ta-daaa:

Screenshot-143

Well done for… feeding yourself, Basil! You’re not starving to death yaay!

Actually he was promoted. For what, nobody knows. The shortage of teachers these days awful.

adorable

He can be bribed with fruit. Say no more.

Screenshot-142

Gillis: “Baseball cap doesn’t go with tux.”

Gulliver: “Talk to the hand cause the bow-tie ain’t listening!”

disgustingvillainousgoldenmantledgroundsquirrel-size_restricted

Screenshot-167

You ate rotten food AGAIN? Can you just not?

“But it was good for 3/4 of the plate and then I just thought what the heck, live a little!”

-5

Screenshot-159

Who will I have to kill to get at least one girl in generation 7? Asking for a friend.

Screenshot-155Random party. At least someone brought food. (hint: it wasn’t the Cuckoos)

Screenshot-153

Basil is middle aged.

Basil: “I’m pretty sure this isn’t my birthday party.”

Be thankful for what you get. I.e mac&cheese of normal quality.

Screenshot-156

Basil: “Now I will rock the mac&cheese to sleep.”

4aa90a3626c8349aafc03ddfd8b2633a

Screenshot-157

Well I’m awfully glad “shove your infant through the floor boards while you put the bowl to bed” isn’t a fail category of its own. ZERO FAILS WERE HAD.

And yet…

Screenshot-161Oups, another bathroom birthday party!

“Thanks for paying attention, WATCHER!”

Sorry, I feel bad. LOL JK.
Screenshot-162

I gave her a more mature look.

Faun: “I don’t want to look MATURE!”

Sorry, now you do. Moving on.

Faun: *midlife crisus*

Screenshot-163

Faun: “Good God, I have FOUR KIDS and TWO DOGS, when did THAT happen?”

Like most things, little by little. They are cute kids and dogs though.

Screenshot-164

Faun: “And Basil, he’s kind of a tool isn’t he?”

Is that a trick question?

Screenshot-166

Hes a loser and he really likes dogs, other than that he’s kind of sweet?

Screenshot-168

Just look at that sweet bed time story reading dog-loving tool! โค

Screenshot-169

Drusilla: “I’d rather not.”

Nobody asked you. Literally zero human beings, cats, or dogs.

Screenshot-151

Gulliver proves he’s a child and not a homework doing droid.

Screenshot-349Sometimes I’m like I’ve had it with gnomes and then I’m like nah, they can stay.

Screenshot-354

“I’m a genius, what am I even doing in this house?”

Really really bad judgment also makes you an idiot. Even if you have an IQ of 140. Which makes the rest of us snicker.

Screenshot-355

I gave Gulliver a free baking action because cupcakes taste nice.

Screenshot-357

Kid really loves his homework.

Screenshot-358

Not sure if Faun is more beautiful or more scary, sometimes.

Screenshot-359

She’s fighting hard for Griffin. Spoiler: it’s useless to struggle.

Screenshot-360Right, there’s a fourth baby. Don’t look so surprised, Basil!

“Actually I had completely forgotten about him. Her. Him?”

GORKIJ!

“Her. Him? Him?”

Yes, it’s a boy, now pick him up.

Screenshot-361

Gillis, where are you and what the fuck are you doing?

Screenshot-363

He took a cab to a random house (not a s schoolmate’s), where no one was home, sat down in the snow and did his homework. Okay.

Screenshot-364

All that skilling and still she didn’t manage to help him master all three. For shame.

-5

Screenshot-365

Too late now, spiffin Griffin will be a school boy in seconds.

Screenshot-366Jump for joy!

Screenshot-368

We didn’t get to choose this time EITHER so he’s still not insane.

griffinbookworm

Loner & friendly cracks me up. He likes the colour of the sky and the ocean, fish & chips with lots of malt vinegar and strumming gently on a guitar.

Screenshot-370

“I scream you scream we all scream for malt vinegar!”

*nods*

Screenshot-371

Gorkij: *forever alone*

Screenshot-373

I repeat. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Screenshot-595

Spoiler: this one will be taught to walk. Eventually.

Screenshot-375

I painted your new room blue. So how do you like it, Griffin?

“All these ginkgo leaves are giving me a massive headache.”

Well, tough titties.

Screenshot-374

“Why can’t I just keep the pink room grandma had? It was nice.”

Because blue is your favourite colour; why must you nag me so, ungrateful child?

Screenshot-377

TIC-TOC

Screenshot-378

“I see you moved the book case to my room. This pleases me.”

Finally something you approve of, I’m so glad. -__-

Screenshot-379

I haven’t seen Gulliver all day but apparently he’s visiting a schoolmate and now it’s 11 pm and he wants to hear a bed time story.

Screenshot-380Schoolmate’s mum has no objections, like for instance “it’s 11 pm and aren’t your parents worried and I’m sorry but we don’t have a spare toothbrush”?

Screenshot-392

Schoolmate’s mum: “Llamas in pyjamas or Dr Snooze?”

Gulliver: “Llamas in pyjamas!”

Screenshot-391*does a one hour pantomime of llamas in pyjamas*

Screenshot-390“That was fun. Now where do they keep their food?”

In their fridge that is theirs. Now hop on your bike home.

Screenshot-395

She even made salad for him. :ยด)

Screenshot-383

Gillis: *existential angst*

Screenshot-384

30 seconds later: “Never mind.”

Gotta love an idiot. Too dumb to dwell.

Screenshot-387Griffin had the same idea as Gulliver, but in his own bed because he’s a normal kid.

“My mum smells so nice.” ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m sure she does.

Screenshot-388

“And she’s so pretty.” ๐Ÿ™‚

Can’t argue with you there.

Screenshot-389

“I love my mum.” ๐Ÿ™‚

And I’m sure she loves you too. Now sleep.

Screenshot-394

WHAT ARE YOU DOING UP!?

“I was hungry.”

Screenshot-397

Meanwhile, at the other side of town: “Oh well, it was sweet while it lasted.”

To have a complete stranger read to you? That might hurt your parents’ feelings.

Screenshot-400Moon over Glendalough.

Screenshot-398“They see me rollin’, they hatin’.”

Screenshot-396

I don’t even remember where you were all night.

*scrolls up* In a snow drift doing your homework, outside a complete stranger’s house, while they were away. And now space ship sparkles. Okay.

Screenshot-591

I’m going to assumeย desperately hope this is another day.

Screenshot-592

Love this kid. He’s like Blake II. Nobody remembers Blake, which is just as well, but he was a good kid.

Screenshot-593

LOL, dog is aggressive. Dog tackles Griffin. Griffin takes it in stride though.

Screenshot-594

I love aggressive dogs. They scare off Grim! Good angry dog.


Etta died without fulfilling her LTW or maxing her career. She was a fun heir to play but honestly I was quite ready to move on with the legacy before I’m 100 myself.

fails: -30

wins: +5 (honor roll for Gulliver, the little nerd)

-145

  1. RIP Etta and Karma. Seems that the Grim finally remembered about Etta after she was rescued by a dog so much time ago. She will be missed ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Ooh, Faun and Basil are finally married. I was wondering if that would ever happen. School chums are really pretty! And I loved Old Testament randomness.

      Etta will be missed indeed, but since she’s been not only around but OLD since July 2016, I felt it was about time!

      I just kept forgetting they weren’t actually married and I didn’t really care either way, but I did it for Etta.

  2. Looks like Faun’s proposal gave Etta enough closure to move on. Couldn’t die without getting that wish fulfilled. ๐Ÿ˜›

    You rock that Mac and cheese to sleep, Basil. I’m sure your children won’t mind being chucked through the floor.

    Gulliver getting a bedtime story at the neighbor’s was hilarious. ๐Ÿ˜‚
