Previously, on 100 Days of Awesome:
ANASTASIA: You know what the worst part is? The worst part is
that before the date was over, I thought what a good husband
Georgy’s dad would make. (wails) I barely even know him!
Hi! Despite numerous delays, all of which were my fault, 100 Days
of Awesome is finally back!
I have discovered a new and better way to take pictures which very
rarely results in your being able to see a Sim’s queue in the upperleft-hand corner. And since I need to do a rebuild, I thought I’d
delay taking a new cover picture until the family was successfully
recreated in the new ’hood. I hope that’s not too much of a
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.
PONG: Things are going a lot better now, I think.
REBECCA: They’re going okay.
PONG: Lots better. You laugh at my jokes again.
REBECCA: Not very often. They’re not very funny.
PONG: They’re as funny as they ever were.
REBECCA: Which is not very.
PONG: And see, we’re arguing about it now. In person. You
talking to me, in the same room. Lots better.
PONG: I rest my case.
ANASTASIA: So who wants to take on the community lot task
ALLYN: What is it?
ANASTASIA: “Make five best friends.”
PONG (ignoring them): And here’s a kiss for my sweetie.
ANASTASIA: Win, be a pal and make your parents stop being all
mushy before I’ve had a stiff drink, okay? (mutters) Or maybe
ALLYN: Can I try it?
ANASTASIA: You really want to go out and make five best
ALLYN: Sure. It shouldn’t be that hard, should it? I mean, I’m
almost best friends with Olga already. And I like meeting people.
ANASTASIA: You’re not Pop, are you?
ALLYN: No, but there’s nothing wrong with having friends.
(cheerfully) And maybe some of my new friends will be boys. Or if
they’re girls, they might have brothers. Or male cousins. It’ll be
fun. But what about the home lot task?
ANASTASIA (V.O.): Don’t you worry about the home lot task. I
have that under control.
ANASTASIA: Esme, it’s good to see you again!
ABHIJEET MCCLELLAN, THE FIREFIGHTER: Yeah, you too.
You’re always so… enthusiastic.
ANASTASIA: What? I’m always glad to see you.
ABHIJEET THE FIREFIGHTER: I know. I just can’t help
ANASTASIA: What do you mean, “why”? Because you are one
smexy, smexy man.
ABHIJEET THE FIREFIGHTER: So I’ve been told. And that’s
pretty well all I am, isn’t it?
ANASTASIA: What are you talking about?
ABHIJEET THE FIREFIGHTER (V.O.): I’m talking about talking.
We never talk. We never do anything except go into the sauna. It’s
like I’m just another notch on the bedpost, right? Or like I’m some
sort of -- of trophy, that you get points for.
ANASTASIA (V.O.): What, you want to be part of the family or
something? Because… Georgy… wouldn’t mind having you
around more often…
ABHIJEET THE FIREFIGHTER (V.O.): Well, I hate to disappoint
the kid, but I’m not going to be.
ANASTASIA (V.O.): Is it because of the sauna thing? Because I -ABHIJEET THE FIREFIGHTER (V.O.): No. Look, I -- I have
another girlfriend. And she got a great job in Strangetown, so I’m
going to move there with her.
ANASTASIA (V.O.): You what?
ABHIJEET THE FIREFIGHTER (V.O.): Well, it’s an awesome
career opportunity for her. And a firefighter can get work just
about anywhere. So this is going to be the last time in the sauna.
ANASTASIA (V.O.): You son of a bleep! I’m almost tempted to
tell you no sauna now.
ABHIJEET THE FIREFIGHTER (V.O.): But you won’t.
ANASTASIA (V.O.): (sniffs haughtily) No. I need the points.
ANASTASIA: I can’t believe that son of a bleep!How can he just
up and decide he’s going to move away like that? The nerve of
ANASTASIA: No, it’s not the other girlfriend. I don’t have a
problem with him having another girlfriend. Why would I have a
problem with him having another girlfriend? I’m Romance, in case
you haven’t noticed. I just don’t see where he gets off thinking that
she’s better than me.
ANASTASIA: (mutters) Bastard. (aloud) Don’t you have
something better to do?
ALLYN: Aunt Rebecca and I are off to the community center!
We’re supposed to make five best friends.*
*Note from esmeiolanthe: I don’t know if sending two members of the
household to a community lot is strictly legal, but I don’t see anything about it
in the rules. If you think it is verboten, please let me know.
ALLYN (V.O.): I met my friend Olga there, and we were
practically best friends already, so really becoming best friends
ALLYN (V.O.): And Aunt Rebecca and I were almost best friends
too, so that made two pretty quickly.
ALLYN (V.O.): But then we had to split up to try and get the other
three. And I got kind of distracted because Tamara was there, only
we’re already best friends, so that didn’t count.
ALLYN (V.O.): So I met a bunch of cool people, but I didn’t make
best friends with any of them. (sighs dejectedly)
REBECCA (V.O.): It’s a lot harder to make friends than Allyn
thinks it is. I wouldn’t have used the shotgun approach she did, but
hey -- I wasn’t in charge of the expedition.
ABBEY (V.O.): I decided to help Georgiana with her homework
today. We’d been putting it off, because I know that one of the
things we might be asked to do is to teach a child to study. But it
wasn’t today’s task, and Georgiana’s going to become a teenager
tonight. She wants to learn how to study properly, and I want to
teach her, so I don’t see the harm.
ABBEY (V.O.): She’s growing up so fast -- well, they all are. And
Georgiana looks so much like her mother! (sigh) I do hope she’s
happier than her mother, though. I’m not sure why Anastasia is so
angry all the time…
GEORGIANA: What kind of guys do I like? I don’t know. I mean,
I like aliens. They’re just so -- so -- I just like them. That doesn’t
make me a racist or anything does it? Only I don’t like it so much if
they’re bodybuilders or something. You know how bodybuilders
oil themselves up and use spray tan and stuff to make their muscles
stand out more? I don’t like that. I don’t like how shiny it is. And
spray tans always look funny on guys with green skin. And it
doesn’t matter if he’s not like rich or anything, because what’s
important is having a good time. I think I’d like a guy to stay home
and take care of the house and stuff. I mean, somebody’s got to do
it, and I don’t think I’d like it all that much.
PONG (V.O.): No, you can’t film them. One picture on age
transition, and that’s all you get unless and until they are legally
old enough to give consent to their image being used themselves.
PONG (V.O.): It’s not called “overprotective.” It’s called “sensible
PONG (V.O.): Anastasia can do whatever she wants with her kids.
She’s not actively harming them, I suppose, no matter what I
personally think about invasion of privacy. And she’s at least got
the sense to not let either of them take on today’s challenge.
ANASTASIA: It’s “First Woohoo” -- of course I’m not going to let
the girls try it. What kind of a mother do you think I am?
ANASTASIA (V.O.): I’m okay with them doing the community lot
challenge, though. They could stand to be closer.
GEORGIANA (V.O.): O.M.E., Mom is so awesome! She said
Allyn and I could go to the diner and make a best friend.
ALLYN (V.O.): New Mom can be such a pain sometimes. Did you
know that she expected me to go to a community lot to make
friends with my little sister? Seriously?
ALLYN (V.O.): I mean, Georgy’s not bad or anything, but it
would have been nice to make friends with someone male and
single. (sigh) Not that it mattered, because there were these drunk
college guys who started up an epic game of kicky bag and trapped
us in the booth for hours. We finally had to crawl out under the
ALLYN (V.O.): We tried to make best friends, we really did. And
we are friends now. But it got to be really late, and they didn’t
have any coffee, and whoever heard of a diner that doesn’t have
any coffee? So we went home.
GEORGIANA: Mom! We got today’s tasks!
ANASTASIA: (groans) You couldn’t wait until morning to tell us?
Or leave a note?
GEORGIANA: No, because the home one is “Become a vampire”
and you can’t do that during the day.
ANASTASIA: We don’t know any vampires. Are you sure you got
GEORGIANA: Well, really it’s “Become a supernatural creature.”
But vampires are the second coolest supernatural there is, and you
can’t become an alien.
ANASTASIA: I don’t suppose “radioactive toddler counts as a
supernatural, does it?
ANASTASIA: So what does? (quickly) And it has to be something
ANASTASIA: Becomable at home.
REBECCA: Zombie, plantsim, or werewolf.
ANASTASIA: And two of those are luck-based. Crapnuggets!
ABBEY (V.O.): We decided to try for a zombie, but that requires
specialized equipment, and you have to be in a certain line of work
to get it. The kids were all able to find positions in the field, but
they weren’t high enough to snag any of the equipment. And there
simply aren’t any serious jobs for seniors. If I really wanted the
job, I’d probably sue for age discrimination.
ANASTASIA (V.O.): We neglected the garden all day. Normally
you turn your back for five minutes and you’ve got weeds and bugs
everywhere. And bugs mean plant spray, and plant spray means
ANASTASIA (V.O.): How about nope? No bugs. Barely even any
PONG (V.O.): All we had come around all night -- both nights -was one of the neighbor’s dogs. Tiffany, I think her name is.
ALLYN: So today I’m supposed to give a townie a makeover. This
should be fun! I just need to pick the right mark.
ALLYN: See? It’s perfect. It’s a superhero mask and a Superman
hairstyle. Because your name’s Justus, see? And now you can just
need some spandex and maybe a cape to become Justice! Defender
JUSTUS THE DORMIE: Awesome! Uh… who’s Liberty?
ALLYN: I feel really proud of myself, finishing a task! I didn’t
really get off to a great start earlier, but I know what I’m doing
now, and I am ready!

GRAND TOTAL: 24
Days played: 24 out of 100
Note from esmeiolanthe:
Here you have proof (if any was needed) that a rebuild is probably
an excellent idea. Although Melanie is clearly being held by
Abbey, she thinks she’s being held by Georgiana.
Next episode will be played and shot in a nice new ’hood with
cloned and carefully recreated Sims. You shouldn’t notice any
difference, apart from the lack of explosions.
Also, due to complete and total incompetence on the part of
someone whose initials are e.i., Day Two and Day Three were
written up in reverse order. I didn’t notice until after I had created
logical transitions, and I couldn’t figure out how to rework things.
The score and events remain unchanged, so I hope you can find it
in your hearts to forgive me.
Until next time, Happy Simming!
