Well, that was a nice long break, wasnt it? Id give you an explanation, but they all sound like excusesto me, so lets just move on.Today were going to be taking a look at the outermost ring of the town, where the twins and the odds nends live. Like I said before, didnt really have enough material to give the boys their own slideshow.Their bit is only about 20 frames long.
Everyone say hello again to Trouble. Whats she doing today?
What do you honestly think shes doing? Exactly what she does best. Living up to her nickname.I guess she has just few enough Nice points to really chuck that thing. Im probably a terrible person forthinking its funny. Esperanza pulled the funniest faces when she got hit.And yet, they did this for hours.
That, and this. Its just about the only way I had to get money to finish the house. She mostly just foundrocks and toy squeaky bones. Fairly useless, since nobody in town has a dog, and the closest thing arethe coyotes who come out at night, and the last thing this town needs is a case of rabies.
And this, of course. Canoodling on the couch, regardless of the fact that other people sit on it, too. Simsare rather inconsiderate creatures.
Every moment that wasnt spent canoodling or otherwise lollygagging was spent in skilling, most of itantonymous. I wasnt kidding when I said that this week was mostly uneventful.
Having little else to do after work, Heaven decides to run about town , and comes calling on Mondaynight to discuss options for the towns energy supply. Esperanza is more receptive than Eyulf has beenso far. I think its the prospect of having running water and something to cook on thats more than aglorified camp stove that does it for her.
And here is proof positive that Heaven now has the requirements to open businesses and addcommunity lots to the town. This is going to come in handy soon.
Johan, sadly, provided very little in the way of socialisation that night. Dont ask me what hes studyinghere, I cant remember for the life of me. Probably cooking; I like having sims who dont routinely set fireto their own belongings and persons when theyre peckish.And the next few slides have no bearing on the story whatsoever, I just thought they were funny.
Oh, dont whinge, you have all your fingers still. I did warn you.
During the day, its back to the grind for the girls, doing what they love to do according to their tastesand Aspirations.Esperanza: When I was a kid, we had a house right out back by the railroad tracks. I would listen to thetrains as I went to sleep at night.Euphie: I couldnt do that-- its just too noisy!
Oh gee, look at her expression. Beware the conversation usurper, Esperanza!
No, but they really do get along quite well. Dont mind Trouble, shes being antisocial in an attempt toearn some cash for later. Were going to need it when we make our next big purchase.
At this point, Im beginning to suspect that Euphie spends more time here than at her own house. Imsure Gary is starting to get a little lonely by now.That said, its actually good for her to get up am move, what with the ankles and all. A little walk at duskcan do nothing but help.
Sometimes her husband comes with, to sit and talk to one of the only other men in town. What withGary being Pleasure and Johan being Romance, they get along well and can discuss a lot of the samethings.Like women.
Or as is the case at the moment, woman singular.No sense of shame, these two.
Gary: At least she hasnt started recycling old memes and pulling jokes and references from otherlegacies yet.Stephanie: Give it time. Shes not that creative....I hate you both.
Gary: But Agnar? Totally hot.Stephanie & Esperanza: (Awkward silence.)Gary: I would smooch him.Stephanie & Esperanza: (+1 Awkward.)
Esperanza: What do you say: should he be barred from all future conversations about the twins?Stephanie: Yes. By all means yes.Gary: You guys cant keep me down.Stephanie: And you shouldnt talk about my booty call like that.
Speaking of booty calls.Stephanie: Is he walking around naked? Lord, he is one hairy sasquatch.Agnar: Ahem.
Stephanie: BOOGIE!Agnar: What is this “boogie?” Boogie to the disco??
Agnar: Hearts!Stephanie: ...Did I jump on you too hard?
Of course, being the fair and fragile flower that I am, all that sand and sun take their toll. I wish I couldsay this is the first time its going to happen, but I just dont see that being true.
At this point its basically just a race to the egg for these guys. One of them is going to get it, its just aquestion of who.And yes, the next pregnancy is definitely going to be Esperanzas.
Esperanza: Pst—hey, come outside! I have a surprise for you.
Nothing quite like a quiet, romantic dance behind the flower bench....Actually, I take it back, that is kinda sweet, out under the moon and everything.
In the morning its quite literally business as usual. Esperanzas back to the old grindstone, and thebusiness is doing good! The townies always seem to pop by to pick up a fresh batch of flowers.
SYNCHRONIZED SHOPPING!They did this for five full, real life minutes. It was hilarious.
As it is for the moment, Most of the shop duties fall to Esperanza, since her roommates are eitherskilling or sleeping half the time. She handles it with heaps of grace.
...Still working on the badge thing, though.That looks like it hurts.
And I dont see that situation changing all that much anytime soon.Stephanie: Hi Agnar! Whats up? --Oh. Sure, I can come over, no problem.Well, whats this about? Lets pop over and find out.
Of course, its going to take a minute or two, seeing as its still Monday here.Agnar: Hello, Eyulf!Eyulf: Hello, Agnar. Do you think that you would stop doing that? I feel I must study immediately.Agnar: Yes, of course, brother.
Agnar: This is more fun as a group.Eyulf: Yes, it is.At the time, I had Eyulf studying Physiology and Agnar studying cooking (or maybe it was cleaning?) butit seems I got their Lifetime Wants mixed up. To top it off, I didnt even notice until the end of the week.
When hes not chained to the sofa, hes chained to the field.Well okay, its not a field, its just a garden plot, but its enough to get them through the winter, hopefully.Not quite enough to provide for everyone for the rest of the year, but its all they can afford right now.
There are hardly any pictures here, because I was so busy with the fields and studying and all of that.Sadly, I dont have much of a voice for these two yet, but hopefully that comes later. Mostly they werejust boring and did what they had to do in between entertaining the neighbors.
See? The poor man works like a dog. And its still a couple days off from hot water and a proper stovefor them. At least he can have a bath.
Euphie: The thing I miss most are restaurants. I think thats what this town needs. Maybe just a littleMom n Pop place, you know? Just somewhere to congregate.Eyulf: But do we not already congregate at each others houses?Euphie: Dont bring me down, man. I just want some deep fried fish and biscuits.Eyulf: We have fish!
And see, they do have fish. It was the weirdest thing: they were going to put the garden where the pondis, but they apparently dug right into a sinkhole and it filled with water.Where the fish came from is anyones guess, however. Probably best not to think about that.
Late Thursday morning, Agnar picks up the phone and makes a quick call--
--and summons the town witch, who touches down in the yard.Not sure why I felt the need to fly over there, when I could easily just walk, but I guess the rule of coolwon out.
Proof positive that hes spent a ridiculous amount of time at this easel. I cant complain: its a little extraincome for them. Theyll need it for cribs and whatnot.
I love how Eyulf is trying so hard to ignore the underpants here. Just focusing so hard on that damnmeal replacement shake. Come on, man, it cant taste that good.
The only other thing they can do for cash. And...thats all the slides I have for them. Like I said before,they were really just kinda busy, and I didnt take a whole lot of pictures of them doing the same oldthings over and over again. Tragic, because I really like them a lot, but if nothing happens, well...nothinghappens.Lets close this out.
I really dont think that will be necessary, dear.So this is where I leave you! The last slides are a quick shot of the town here at the end of the week,and our first official community lot.
Here it is: Uncanny Valley as of the end of Week 1. Took me forever to get here, but now were at theend.
And here is the cemetery: Ive clearly misspelt the word up there, but Im going to be correcting that assoon as possible. I never could spell “cemetery” properly. “Pterodactyl” is no problem. “Cemetery?”Hand me a dictionary.And thats it. Updates are going to hopefully be more regular after this, this once a fortnight crap takestoo long. So youll be seeing a lot more of me, mores the pity.Next week, we see the opening of Week 2! Until then, Happy Simming.
