– Grimm Idiots –
Score +365 Points
Norah entertains me by painting her impression of P1umB07 during the night. The two of them can’t stand each other but as long as they stay a good distance away from each other all is fine.
Later they let me get a screenshot to prove the tension they feel when being too close to one another.
Another event for this night is Eric ageing up into an Elder. Oops – I knew he was close, but obviously I didn’t pay enough attention to just how close. Eric is sad from not being celebrated… sorry, dude!
He punishes the household by placing a toilet prank before heading back to bed.
Early in the morning Amber is the one to trigger the prank. She hates it and enter a rage-fuelled cleaning frenzy afterwards.
Apparently she wants to cool off after cleaning so vigorously and angrily. That’s of course great and all – but dearest Amber, It’s winter and not really a good temperature for wearing a bikini 🥶
Chip hates his job… well, not this job specifically – any job probably. It’s weighs heavily on him that he’s a corporate sell-out. At least he still manages to get promotions, so he can’t be half bad at what he does – even if he doesn’t enjoy it.
Time to have him save Amber from freezing to death in the pool.
What better way than to ask her to become his girlfriend – something I have been considering the wording of for a while. Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to ask someone if you can become their boy/girl/whatever-friend instead of the other way around where it sounds like you make someone your property?
Let’s pretend Chip asked if he could become Amber’s boyfriend…
Amber agrees – which is excellent since she’s already living here.
Eric and Bellatrix arrive home.
The two of them seem to have had a very different experience while away.
Remember how Bellatrix wiped Eric’s memory a while back?!
Well, the two of them don’t remember being married, so I have to fix that.
I can control each ISBI-idiot for one action during each of their life stages.
I have Bellatrix ask Eric if she can become his girlfriend. He agrees.
P1umB07 Has the Bodybuilder aspiration and I guess he’s working on it here…. I wonder if he can complete it?!
While P1umB07 is keeping himself busy with the punching bag Chip and Amber are whisked away to the Spice Festival. It was Chip’s work-from-home task, and it seemed like a nice change of pace for Amber to go out and have fun in the city with her new boyfriend.
Tasting some of the spicy food – yum!
Spicing things up… with a proposal on the docks of San Myshuno – with the bridge in the background and the fog rolling in – I don’t know if it’s romantic, but it is what it is.
Chip is not excited about being engaged – not at all, but he’s not feeling sad or annoyed by it either so…
Back at home I have Chip work on his book and he gets a Starlight Accolade nomination for it.
[A/N: Look at how proud he is!]
Link, who moved to Brindleton Bay not long ago, is now married to Poppy – a Sim I created for the Plumbobber CAS Game a while back.
Since Poppy is Evil I’m not sure if we should congratulate Link on his marriage – He might regret it before long.
Chip once again mixes business with pleasure when he brings Amber for a trip to Mt Komorebi so that he can write a review of the food stall at the Festival of Lights and she can do whatever she pleases… as ISBI-Sims tend to do.
When it gets darker and all the lights are turned on Chip and Amber find each other for their little private ceremony.
Again, Chip is not very impressed by any of this… at least Amber seems happy about tying the knot.
Congratulations – Mr and Mrs Grimm!
Back at home, it’s time that I use Eric’s one controlled action.
Bellatrix loves the idea of getting engaged – again.
Careful now – Eric’s back is not as strong as it used to be!
All the excitement of getting engaged has Eric tired and he decides on a nap… on the floaty in the pool, during a cold winter night. One day this pool is going to kill one of my Sims…
No gains and no fails means that we’re still at…

Portia has aged up – I hope that at least one of her two youngest kids will grow up to a Young Adult before she leaves us for good.
Astra has also aged up. I think her daughter, Kamilla, will grow up to a Young Adult soon and if not Astra’s husband might be around for a while still. He is still an Adult.Oberon’s wife, Jane, has aged up too. I kind of feel bad that I never gave that family a cat…
Portia’s grandchildren, Henry and Hugo, have aged up to children. Cute little fellows.
Sadly, Oberon has left us…
Cousin Melissa and her husband, Caldor, are expecting. I wonder if they’ll have Spellcaster babies?!
Chip’s friend, Bess, has had a girl with her partner Anna-Lucia. I picked the first name suggested and so their daughter will henceforth be known as Princess Thimbleweed
