|bovinator||11:19 am - Hello|
Hello all, I just thought I'd say hi. I bought Sims 2 yesterday - I thought I'd give it a try :) Now comes the hard part... what to call my sim!
June 14th, 2005
Somehow I have created the most functional Sim family ever. Whereas my other family cried all the time, slept constantly, and were never happy, these are ridiculously cheerful. It's a single mom and teenage daughter. When they wake up, they immediately start dancing together. BECAUSE THEY LOVE LIFE! (I wish I had a screen shot of them dancing in their jammies together.) In fact they dance all the time, including while a cop was beating up their burglar and while the headmaster was deciding if the daughter should be in private school.* They like, never have negative thoughts, except, amusingly, the mother will think negative thoughts about homework after helping the daughter with it.
It's just a joy to be a part of their happy, shallow, angst-free lives. But I do find it funny that because the teenager's aspiration is romance, sometimes her wants include "Buy a bar." Um, no. You may not have a bar, young lady.
*He said no, because the home atmosphere was so crappy. What a square!

Hiro Protagonist, first and founding Sim of this neighbourhood, has passed away.

End of an era, really.

|tevriel||11:27 pm - Welcome home, Mr and Mrs Argos/It's a BOY!|
Jason and Concera came home from college.
When Concera left for college, the family was living in a small, crowded 2br-1bath house on a tiny lot with no garden to speak of.
She came home to ( Protagonist Manor.Collapse )
Where she and Jason, not wanting to disturb and already busy household - at that point already occupied by Hiro, Pao, David and Ender - had a quiet little commitment ceremony on the lawn.
( Married by the mailbox!Collapse )
Jason got a new outfit. Concera was so impressed by his new stylishness she let him knock her up. Enter their new son.
( Jason and Concera, meet Paul. Paul, meet Uncle David and Grandpa Hiro.Collapse )
Pao moved out and Ender's gone to college. I had not, until I watched the closeup when he had his First Kiss with Randy, realised just how strange-looking Ender (who is half-alien) is; he has this weird flat face with a ridiculously tiny nose.
You know, on a day when it hurts to laugh, David should not have been promoted to Ecological Guru (top of the Natural Scientist track). Sure, it's a great job for someone whose life goal is to max out his skills - he only works one day a week now (but gets paid over ten grand for that day).
But it means he dresses like this:( Image cut.Collapse )
David has now made this his Every Day outfit. His father, Hiro, isn't quite comfortable with his son's taking up near-nudism:

But *I'm* amused.
