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!

Hee! Happy family! The family I'm working at the moment are rugged individualists. They get up and all wander off in different directions to do different things - it is an EFFORT to get them all to sit down and have a nice meal together. I think Paul has had a meal with both parents at the same time exactly once, but at least his sister was there too at the time!

Getting into private school, btw? The trick is to give him a full tour of the house, then the nicest meal you can possibly manage, then keep talking to him. You get "schmooze" points for every point of temporary relationship he gains from interaction, so use the "chat" command not the "schmooze" command. Nobody likes a suckup.
