– Grimm Idiots –
Score: +130 Points
Portia seems to have found love – or at least someone willing to get her pregnant. Since she has the Family-Oriented trait I think she deserves the whole package – you know, including a spouse – but it seems that maybe Mr Grunt isn’t the right Sim for her.
Maybe she’ll find someone she likes better at a later point.
I’ve realized how close Bellatrix is to ageing up to a teenager and also how close she is to getting an A in school and also maxing out her creativity skill so I have Ehren help her with a school project.
Creativity Skill Maxed: +10 Points
He also makes sure to guide her to the creativity table – just in time because apparently it’s now time for an abduction.
Please don’t get impregnated!
Ehren is returned more or less unharmed – and also not pregnant. Phew!
He ponders why aliens seem to have such a keen interest in him while he eats a bowl of fruit salad.
The next day Norah has the day off from work.
She spends most of it running around in her nightwear.
… seems like she had a nice day.
Bellatrix arrives home from school in a good mood.
A in School: +5 Points
Most days Oberon arrives home in the company of a nasty mood swing. Today he’s once again embarrassed.
Maybe the other kids are teasing him with how his ears look?
In the evening Bellatrix celebrates her birthday.
She’s a really cute Sim – disguise or not. I’m not a big fan of the yellow hair on my Sims but I think it suits Bellatrix. She’s like the Smurfette of Sims when she’s not disguised.
Ah, living in Oasis Springs during the hot summer days with a bunch of idiot Sims. What an absolute joy!
I have Ehren ask her to change into her warm-weather clothes. She looks at him like he has lost his mind.
I don’t know what she told Ehren but now it seems he’s the one thinking Norah has lost her mind. At least she changed into something cooler.
Okay – so we managed to save Norah. Arnold Knott, who is Norah’s good friend, is not quite as lucky when he visits later in the evening.
He qualifies as a true ISBI-Sim.
He’s an elder doing exercise (basketball) in a heatwave – what could possibly go wrong?!
Well… it was nice knowing you Arnold – and then I realise that I don’t really know what to do with a non-family Sim’s ghost. I guess since he died on the lot he has to stay? I’m not counting it as an unnatural death (-10 Points) for my score since he wasn’t part of the family.
I guess, in some sense, he is now.
Arnold is put to rest under the tree right next to the basketball hoop – I guess he really liked that thing so now he gets to enjoy it in his afterlife as well.
Bellatrix decides I haven’t had enough excitement within the last 24 Sim-hours so she takes it upon herself to learn cooking the next morning. Yay 😬
No fires, thankfully.
Bellatrix and Norah celebrate it with some soccer-practice which ends badly for Norah – or Bellatrix, depending on which of them you ask. Astra is dancing in the background – I think she has a hidden Dance Machine trait.
In the evening Norah is taken for a visit on her home planet.
Looks like it was quite the party.
I’ll end this entry with this notification – Ehren is almost an Elder. He’s got 24 hours before he turns grey.
