A Legacy Being Simple Chapter 2 Welcome back. Here we exhibit the location of Angie Simple’s home in Belladonna Cove. Next to some fancy apartment and a nice house with a helicopter pad. And with the lovely autumn colored leaves, it’s clear what season it is.
On the actual lot itself, Angie spies her next newest best friend for both a nice bonus of 1000 and hopefully 3500 big fat aspy points. Thankfully, by talking about sports, Angie and Miss Spitszig get off to a nice start. Hopefully the topic idea came from the idea of being a former, uh… Oh right, playground monitor.
Spitszig, “And now that we’ve gotten to know each other, I want to offer you some special discounts whenever you use buy or build mode.” Angie, “That’s nice to know. Maybe I’ll be able to get my humble abode in better shape that much sooner.”
This just in! The latest gossip is no longer about mystery sim peeing themselves. It’s now: Angie, “And can you believe he left such a sloppy mess on his face. Who does he think he is trying to fool? “
DER! THE SLOUCHING STARE! THE SLOUCH! IT HAZ SLOUCH-INESS!
Yes we know you got promoted. Enough with the happy thoughts about becoming a Teacher’s Aide. Stop thinking like a fortune sim. Meanwhile… the house now consists of an additional 3x3 room for wonderful skilling time.
Angie, “Our school should have a recycling program because we need to recycle, reduce, and reuse as many school type stuff as possible. It also helps us reduce garbage and otherwise harm the environment. And other super cool things will come of it.” Oh Angie, talking is not your strong suite. Or is it suit? SKILL. Speaking not your skill you shy, bashful little Virgo.

Yes, of course, by skilling within the regions of charisma and cleaning, you will eventually get another promotion.
Dearest of diaries, One of these days I will land the big promotion and eventually be able to afford a nicer looking home with a nice big screen tv. And then I will be able to start throwing magnificent parties with all my wonderful friends.
Work at platinum mood = bonafide promotion. To substitute. Which means more money. Yay. And this time Ottoman lady didn’t follow Angie home. More yay.

This little old lady ain’t so little, but she’ll do nicely as yet another victim of friendship. Shame that she’s also quite Teed off over the whole ‘Let’s talk about the weather’ line Angie seems to love.
Old Lady Athlete, “I see you are a substitute teacher. How would you like a better job? Let’s say, blowing stuff up under the ocean as a Deep Sea Demolitionist.” Angie, “Does it pay better than my current job?” Old Lady Athlete, “Maybe.” Angie, “Deal!”
In order to get a promotion in the field of… Oceanography, Angie needs skills in other areas. In this case, mechanical and body skill points. Mechanical skill comes first, since it requires the most skilling. For now.

After plenty of smashing and bashing, broken object should have magically repair itself Step 6. Put wrench back where you found it for when object breaks again.
It’s Xerxes! Well he and the rest of the gen 3 Ugly Pies did a short tour through Belladonna Cove, so they’re still around the hood.
Mailman, “Dirty rotten no good newspaper stealing scoundrel!” I think every newspaper thief has heard that line at least once. But thanks anyway, Mailman. Mailman, “Now what do I do?” Go back to the off screen area where you hide. And stop staring at me.
Angie, “Today, I shall go to one of the mysterious community lots of the Cove. Maybe buy myself a cell phone if they have one of those vendor machines.”
Hmmm, well the minimart does have vendor machines, just not the electronics kind. And I do learn that not a single one exists in Belladonna Cove unless I actually place one. There is a break dancer here, but I don’t really care about having Angie learn how to perform that dance. Too funky and makes no sense to me.
The arcade place at least looks pretty darn cool and entertaining. Angie enjoys herself some RC car racing and some pinball wizardry.
Look, Gabriel Green, aka Mr. Pointy Nose. Did have the idea of just picking him as Angie’s spouse, but he’s a playable so he’s pretty much off limits. Gabriel, “Fantastic!” Angie, “Darn it all. Can’t believe he got away.”
Watch as the neat sim eats her chip or cracker or whatever it is that is invisible between the fingertips with such dramatic eloquence. Angie, “I do declare this snack to be the fairest among all snacks.” Yummerz.
Dearest of Diaries, I do wish I had a lawn gnome. It would make me feel much better knowing I have something to write about in you. It would also compliment the big screen tv.
Mr. Contender, I do believe this conversation is going in the wrong direction. After all, you are a playable so you can’t even move in! And what’s more, that should be Angie’s +3500 Aspy points! Grrrr!
Time to build up that body skill. Jumping rope works for free for a while. Darn full fun need bar! A quick scoot to the buy mode results in the purchase of this handy exercise bike. Thankfully, it gets Angie her the last bit of the body skill points that she needs.
Angie, “I’m so fit and thin.” So are most sims. In fact, maybe I should pick up a handicap. Living Large anyone? Haha… nah.
With a quick greet with the newspaper boy and snagging 1 last body skill point, Angie goes into the wonderful platinum mood. Just in time for the carpool to boot.
Darn it! Who I thought was a newspaper thief turns out to be garbage can kicker. Hope Angie makes it home just in time to get the trash up before roaches invade.
Thanks for borrowing the paper Marcie. And do please tell your brother to stop stealing it.
Look! Yummy tasty popplers! No wait… I mean yummy kibble-bits of fish food. Angie got her promotion to Marine Biologist and snagged her career reward.
The koi pond. Fish included. Wonder if they die off if they don’t get fed on a regular basis like aquarium fish.
Angie, “Working out is exhausting and sweat-inducing.” At least with it being fall, you don’t have to stay out in the blazing sun as long.
