Hi! Welcome back to 100 Days of Awesome, the story starring the
family made of Awesome plus Win! They could definitely be doing
worse on the whole “score” thing: 24 points in 24 days at last
The 100 Days challenge was created by Callista over at the old
Boolprop, and the only change I’ve made is to decide that it’s okay
for Sims to go to work or school.
ANASTASIA (V.O.): I decided to let the girls sort things out
ALLYN: No fair! I’m the one who’s Family! Three out of five.
GEORGIANA: I won twice fair and square.
ALLYN: But I’m the Family one!
GEORGIANA: Okay, Miss Matchmaker Lady, we all want dates!
One for me, one for my sister, and one for my mom. And we want
them to all be good dates. Actually, me and my sister have a bet on
about who can get their guy to go steady with them first. That’s
today’s task on our reality show: Go Steady. So maybe make mine
a really good date, and make hers not quite as good, okay? So it
takes hers longer to agree and I can win the bet?
MATCHMAKER: If you can afford it, hon, we can provide it. (to
the camera) And remember, always hire a member of your local
Gypsy Matchmakers Union affiliate. Unions make labor better!
ALLYN: So you see, that’s my proposal. Does it sound good?
ALLYN’S DATE: What are you, smoking something?
ALLYN: There’s nothing wrong with wanting to go steady with
someone you’ve only known for twenty minutes!
ALLYN’S DATE: Yeah there is. You’re definitely altered if you
think I’ll agree to that. But I meant are you literally smoking
something? Because I can smell smoke.
ABBEY, PONG and WINIFRED: Aaaaaaaaugh! Firefirefirefire!
REBECCA: Win’s still got a ways to go in the kitchen department.
It’s not like any of us are such great shakes in the kitchen really, I
mean, I was unanimously elected to do out community lot task,
which is Cook Lobster Thermidor, because I have the most cooking
REBECCA: I have seven. Lobster Thermidor takes ten. Ten!
REBECCA (V.O.): But nobody was hurt, which is the main thing.
It’s no big deal. (chuckles) Georgiana didn’t even notice.
GEORGIANA: I was supposed to notice something? What?
GEORGIANA: No, really, what? What was I supposed to notice?
C’mon, tell me!
GEORGIANA (V.O.): I was kinda distracted.
GEORGIANA: You don’t wanna go steady with me?
GABE ALBEE: No.
GEORGIANA: But we have really good chemistry!
GABE ALBEE: Yeah, but I would have to know you better before I
agree to something like that. I like you and all, but then there’s the
GEORGIANA (V.O.): It was disappointing! I wanted to earn us a
point, and Gabe is pretty cute. No, but really -- what was I
supposed to notice?
REBECCA (V.O.): I got elected to today’s community lot task too,
which was Make Friends With A Supernatural, because I’m the
only one who knows one. I chatted on the phone just enough to get
to the point where I could invite her for coffee.
REBECCA (V.O.): But when we got to the coffee shop, she said
she had to go to the bathroom and left. I don’t get it. I mean, I know
enough about her to know she’s not at all finicky, and the bathroom
at the Benevolent Grounds isn’t that bad. It wasn’t even occupied at
REBECCA (V.O.): Fortunately, she came back later, and we were
able to make friends properly. At last, a task checked off our list!
ANASTASIA (V.O.): So for the at home task, it’s Receive A
Flaming Poo Bag. I wish that had been the task yesterday, because I
already did get one. Of course, since I’m now a proven success, I
got the official nod today.
ANASTASIA (V.O.): Not surprising, is it? “Oh, is it a crappy task
for a promiscuous Sim? We’ll just get Anastasia to do it.”
ANASTASIA (V.O.): To tell you the truth, I enjoyed this one a
ANASTASIA’S DATE: Oh my Esme, did you just fart?
ANASTASIA (V.O.): But I have to admit: the first guy was kind of
ANASTASIA: Who, me? I never fart. (loudly, pointing at her date)
It was him! This guy, right here!
ANASTASIA’S DATE: No it wasn’t! That was a soy fart if ever I
smelled one, and I haven’t had soy in months!
ANASTASIA (V.O.): I kept trying to gross him out. What better
way to tank a date, right?
ANASTASIA: So, shall we see exactly how far I can get my finger
up my nose?
ANASTASIA (V.O.): But no matter how hard I tried, he wouldn’t
ANASTASIA’S DATE: Oh wow, that’s a good sized booger! Did
it come out of a sinus, do you think, or was that, like, post-nasal
*Note from esmeiolanthe: “Post-nasal drip” is snot that hangs down the back
of your throat from your nose. Some people are more prone to it than others.
ANASTASIA (V.O.): He wouldn’t even argue right!
ANASTASIA: You’re a po-faced son of a camel whore, that’s what
ANASTASIA’S DATE: Wow, that’s an interesting image. Does
that mean my mother is a camel who is a whore, or that my mom is
a human whose clients are camels?
ANASTASIA: Only a dork like you would care!
ANASTASIA’S DATE: No, no, it’s an interesting linguistic
question. Come on, which is it?
ANASTASIA (V.O.): Seriously, though: Dude was weird.
ANASTASIA’S DATE: Nnnnnnno. No hugs. I know where those
hands have been.
ANASTASIA (V.O.): I had better luck with the next date.
Seriously, a couple joy buzzers and some insults about his mother,
and I had it in the bag.
ANASTASIA (V.O.): Nothing about camels, though. That was
ANASTASIA (V.O.): The one problem there is that I earned the
poo bag. Oh, you best believe I earned that poo bag! But because of
the stupid columns on the porch, he couldn’t set it down and light
it. And he didn’t come around again until two in the morning the
following day, so we don’t know if it counts yet. The judges are
still out on that one.
ALLYN: Today’s community lot task was Play With A Grandchild.
I thought about volunteering to go to college and drop out real fast
so I could adopt, but that didn’t seem right. Not after Grandma.
REBECCA (V.O.): I remember Mom once said to me “I hope I go
quietly. In my own bed would be best, but if I can’t be in my own
bed, then in the bathroom.” I said “Why the bathroom, Mom?” and
she said “It’s traditional.” With that little smile thing she’d do, you
know? “It’s traditional.” (sniffle) Well, she got her tradition, I
ANASTASIA (V.O.): After Dad died, Mom said to me “Hula
zombies are nice, but I don’t want everyone to stand around and cry
for me.” She said she liked that poem by Mary Whosit: “Do not
stand at my grave and weep/I am not there; I do not sleep.” “Don’t
cry for me,” she said. “Keep on having a good time, and wherever I
am, I’ll see and be happy.”
ANASTASIA (V.O.): And then she said “But don’t have such a
good time that you forget to use protection.” Because that was my
mother for you. Practical.
REBECCA (V.O.): Today’s task was Use An Aspiration Reward In
Green Or Lower. So I did.
REBECCA (V.O.): I’m glad it wasn’t something elaborate we
needed to do. I don’t think any of us could have handled that.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you waken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Question from esmeiolanthe
So, judges, what do you think? Did Anastasia earn the point for the
flaming poo bag, even though it arrived after midnight and couldn’t
be set down?
I will abide by a majority vote, so please be sure and leave me a
comment or something to let me know what you think is fair!
Abbey’s poem is “Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep” by Mary
