Last time, Myra earned §100 000 but wasn't given perma-plat for it (it has been fixed), Cleo got some lovin from various NPCs, Gen 7 was looking cute, and the girls were accepted into private school.
We'll start this one right off with a glitch. Why a glitch? Because I installed Free Time, that's why!
The dogs were pulled out of the ground, only for one to die and one to turn into an elder. BOOOORING
Did you know they can tinker with the hot tub? I let them keep whatever the game assigned them, and I have NO REPEATS. Would you believe it?
If you suck at tinkering, though, you break things. Hmph.
I think it's awesome you can take the dogs on hikes. Fern goes on a lot of hikes just so I can clear the house out.
He came back from the hike to bathe outdoors in the pouring rain. Hey, at least he was almost bottoming out his hygiene this time, right?
This guy was struck by lightning in the hot tub. He went straight home.
Guess whose birthday it is! go on, guess!
Did you guess Leona? You should have.
OH MY GOD I was tempted to let her keep it, but she has a blue and white theme.
She looks almost identical to her grandmother. It's not a bad thing...but it's not a good thing. She rolled Family, likes athletic redheads that don't wear glasses, and wants to be a superhero.
Here's Kimberly, in case you forgot.
They're similar, but not the same. Leona's chin and nose stick out more, while Kimberly has HUGE eyes and is blonde.
Leona: You really don't think I look like her, do you? Get real!
Anyone recognize this pic? It's the picture used for sim_rants's new favourite icon!
Myra caught some butterflies before the bees got to her. I laughed hysterically at this animation.
The BFFs thing is new and strange. Cleo has 13!! Fern has 9, though. You think there's a LTW related to BFFs? Like, 10 or 15 of them?
Guess what Myra's hobby is. I'll give you a hint, it has to do with the violin.
Who's this kid? I hovered over him to find out: Orlando Bertino, who I was allowed to age up with Leona. He's so cute.
Lenoa! GET IN THERE AND TALK TO HIM, FAMILY SIM!
Here's a dog! Hi, Hansel!
Kimberly was dropping actions and I was freaking out because I didn't want that bug. Turns out, her grandmother was dying.
Thanks, Cleo, for turning your grandaughter into an alcoholic.
Oh, and thanks for dying in the middle of her date so that she cried for the rest of it.
Mostly, though, thank you for your platinum grave. Who's a rock star? YOU ARE...were.
Leona was upset.
Ok, a lot.
My dogs have been having single births for a while. Is there a reason?
Anyway, that's Ray, the thirteenth generation dog.
His grandfather hates him.
I can't keep going with only having one puppy at a time. Not enough variety.
Kimberly's the tinkerer in the house, remember? Let's start this puppy up.
I'm a mechanic's daughter and I deem this unacceptable. We'll work on the engine first, k?
Fern is middle-aged, which is cleverly represented by a haircut and removal of his piercings. Is there no end to his hotness?
He caught bugs. Apparently, one of them is a Ringo beetle. You realize now that he's going to be on bughunts all the time until I find John, Paul, and George beetles, right?
Instead, I'll just send him to Peerless park, the nature enthusiasts' commune with Hansel.
It was exciting. Fern made hotdogs...
Overfed some koi...
And met this woman
Then he went home. LOOK AT THE CUTE DOGGY GOING FOR A CAR RIDE!!
Another puppy was had. Meet Domino.
Other than screwing with various household items, there's not much to do to gain Tinkering enthusiasm. Kimberly will happily do this until it's time to shower.
OMG RAY GREW UP. Definitely another one for the second set of dogs.
Wow, look who Leona brought home.
Oh, hey, a puppy! This is Lily, the only non-white small dog female in the pound.
Binary cash! Does that mean they only have §83? /lame joke
You know, I like her with a little weight on her. It looks good.
Unfortunately, all that swimming made her fit.
For skittlebox, ohcherub, and simulfacts: MOAR BETTY
The bodywork completed, Kimberly attacked the engine.
It needs an entire windshield, but nothing a little paint won't fix!
Yellow, her favourite. (OMG the car is sexy, but I wish it was blue)
Myra: Here, Leona, have this free meal coupon and cologne. Maybe the boys will like you more.
Leona: Thanks, mom!
And, um, a dog died. THE END
So, that's 7.3. My plan today is to play through 8.1 (Kimberly won 12-3-1) in its entireity. It's so hard to play this legacy because of the laggy lot, but I refuse to move them. I think it's time to delete the graves and sell some objects. There's a lot of pet graves and a LOT of objects I never use.
