Chapter 2.3

I’m sure stuff happened last time, but I’m writing this up six months after taking these pics and I don’t even remember this update much less the last one.

Also, this was scheduled for April 2016, but it failed to update.  I’m doing that today (June/2016).  My bad!

Spirit Animal Award

spirit-animal

A huge thank you to Umbramuse, Somebodysangel13* Randi** (The Tart’s), and Pinkfiend1* (The Parker Alphabetacy)  for the nominations.  I really appreciate it.  Head over to Bedlam ISBI to see her kick ass challenge.

Spirit Animal Blog Award Acceptance Rules:

1.) Thank the blogger who nominated you, and link back to their page.

2.) Post the award picture on your blog.

3.) Write a short paragraph about yourself and what your blog means to you.

4.) If you could be any animal, what would it be?

5.) Pick and notify ten nominees.


About me?  No one wants to know about me.  Seriously.  I’m boring.

Okay, okay.  My name is Jenn or Jennifer, but if you call me Jenny, I will hunt you down and make your life miserable.  I’m the mother of three (almost 24, almost 19, and a 12 yr old), grandmother of 2 (3 and 1 respectively).  My birthday is in September and I just celebrated my 21st birthday for the 22nd time.  My middle child, Caitlin just finished her first year of college and my youngest is a couple of days away from finishing out 6th grade.  My oldest, his wife and little Leo are doing pretty darn good too.  I also have a cat, who is basically a furry human.

This is my spirit animal.

Nah.  Just kidding.  This is the reason why I was delayed posting my nomination.  A case of poison ivy smoke inhalation with a side of anaphylaxis.  I will say that his face doubled in size between this pic and the hospital trip.

deer

This isn’t what I would ever have thought, but after a quiz I took,  it’s basically me.

The Deer: You are a shy type of sorts. You’d rather be home, reading, watching TV, or even sleeping on your days off. You let very few people into your life, but you are best friends to those you do let in. You’re often private & reserved, and you’re the listener in the conversations that you have.

Your comfort zone lies in the hands of just a couple people, and that’s okay. Trust is a big thing to give out, but don’t be shrewd to the people that want into your life.

The only difference is that I don’t trust anyone.  Ever.


Now I guess I’ll throw out my nominees.

1.  Berries of Insanity – a Sims 3 ISBI

2. The Winter’s ISBI – a Sims 3 ISBI

3.  The Kahekili’s – a Sims 3 Random Legacy

4.  The Dysfunkshinul Legacy – a Sims 3 Legacy

5. The Shepherd Legacy – a Sims 3 Legacy

6. Cabernet ISBI – a Sims 3 ISBI

7. Dayes of Our Lives – a Sims 3 Legacy/Completion Challenge

8. Rourke Epic Legacy – a  Sims 3 Boolprop EPIC Challenge

9. Zale Family – a Sims 3 ISBI/Alphabetacy

10. Evans EPIC – a Sims 3 Boolprop EPIC Chalenge


*I have edited this to add Somebodysangel13 and Pinkfiend and to link Umbramuse, because I guess I forgot to like a dumbass.

**I have edited this add Randi after the Tart’s got another nomination.

 

Chapter 2.2

Well, remember how last chapter waited to be published for almost three months?  Well, this chapter has 43 pictures from that same time frame.  Guess who cannot remember what the heck was going on?  Yeah. Me.

I do recall that I disliked their new house and built a small one on the platforms in Lucky Palms.  This is the tour.  Amethyst had wanted a boy, so the nursery is blue.  She got a girl, so the child room has already been converted for Jewel.  I did notice that there is no room for Fairy, haha.  She will sleep in the child room until she either dies or Jewel becomes a child, whichever happens first.

Oh and according to the next pics, they have not moved in yet.  When they do, Moosker will be out front on the left and Pumpkin’s doggy stuff will be on the right.

TS3W 2015-09-13 20-02-33-74

Tomato:  I smell stinky baby.
Amethyst:  I think you smell yourself.

TS3W 2015-09-13 20-06-32-81

Scrap:  Hurry up and find me a RoboNanny chip.  I want to hold that baby.
Amethyst:  Start getting some reward points then.  Sheesh.

TS3W 2015-09-13 20-07-42-22

Scrap:  If I could help you, baby, I would, but my chips are not set for childcare.

TS3W 2015-09-14 09-48-44-04

EEEK!

TS3W 2015-09-14 09-50-56-36

Amethyst saves the day because apparently no one else can do diapers.

TS3W 2015-09-14 09-52-36-44

Woo, congrats Kimi.

TS3W 2015-09-14 09-52-56-65

Tomato:  I’m really, really hungry.
Amethyst:  I don’t care.  I have wants for a boy and a girl.  You can eat after I have been fertilized.

TS3W 2015-09-14 09-53-41-98

Tomato:  Computer is broken.  It is day four of it being broken.  It must be fixed soon.

Jewel:  Halp!  Who is the strange scawwy monshter?

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-01-47-28

Scrap siphoned the washer to death.

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-02-38-64

She never shuts up.

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-03-12-72

Tomato:  NOM NOM NOM!

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-06-20-53

Congrats Stephanie!

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-07-57-46

Fairy makes an appearance.
Fairy:  Move so I can go to bed.
Amethyst:  Stuck.  Wait a minute.

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-13-18-85

Pumpkin:  *tries to trip the human*
Amethyst:  Baby!

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-15-10-36

Wedding bells for Onyx!

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-15-47-02

Amethyst:  Hello, I want to move now.

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-19-04-23

Tomato:  Pumpkin!
Pumpkin:  *is trapped*
Fairy:  I’ll box anyone who gets in my way.

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-19-39-30

Still crying.

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-19-56-09

Awww, I can’t believe Brandi is getting married already!

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-24-44-35

Scrap traded the football for a frisbee and even found a place to drag Fairy off to play.

Tomato spends some quality time in the hot tub.  It’s got a nice view.

TS3W 2015-11-28 11-53-16-71

Tomato:  It’s crying.  Again.
Fairy:  Maybe it’s tired.  Put it in the crib.

TS3W 2015-11-28 11-53-55-15

Tomato:  That didn’t work.
Fairy:  Snuggle it?

TS3W 2015-11-28 11-54-37-55

Tomato:  That didn’t work either.

TS3W 2015-11-28 11-55-15-45

Amethyst finally arrives home from work.

Amethyst:  Change the diaper.

TS3W 2015-11-28 11-56-30-69

Tomato:  I draw the line at poop.

TS3W 2015-11-28 11-57-28-36

Tomato:  Oh and changing it didn’t work either.
Tomato and Fairy leave for work.  Amethyst ran off to play drums for the military.

Major goings on around here.

TS3W 2015-11-28 14-20-18-65

Fairy stayed right here for hours after work.

Fairy:  This spot is better than going home to that screaming kid.

TS3W 2015-11-28 16-28-49-63

What Fairy did not know was that Scrap got the RoboNanny chip from a trait chip bundle and installed it.

Scrap:  Baby fed: Check.  Baby sleep:  Check.  WHY IS IT CRYING NOW?

True fact:  By the time she was fed and went to sleep for a little while, she was lonely and poopy again.

TS3W 2015-11-28 16-39-09-76

Pumpkin hasn’t gotten much attention this chapter, but she’s doing good.

TS3W 2015-11-28 16-40-02-27

LMAO

TS3W 2015-11-28 16-42-45-75

Scrap eventually changed her and she finally stopped crying.

Scrap:  Now what?
Well, you could put her back to bed.

 

TS3W 2015-11-28 16-43-38-45

Tomato:  It’s broken.  *sadface*  Fix it?

TS3W 2015-11-28 16-44-47-05

You know, you could have fixed it yourself instead of making your hugely pregnant wife romantic interest do it.
I just realized that they never started dating, much less got married.

TS3W 2015-11-28 16-50-25-03

Apparently Scrap only changed her, so she was still a bit lonely.  Good thing Tomato had nothing better to do while the hot tub was getting fixed.

TS3W 2015-11-28 16-51-43-34

Contrary to the sign, it is 1:25 a.m. and Fairy is stinking up her sleeping bag while freezing to death.  Amethyst will call her home if she survives fixing the hot tub with only three handy points.

TS3W 2015-11-28 16-58-23-45

She survived!  She also fed the dog and cleaned up her mess.

Amethyst:  Mother, it’s time to come home before you end up an ice cube like mom.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-00-42-80

Amethyst:  Can you save your lame flirts until after you have had some sleep?  In fact, let’s just go woohoo so you can just sleep afterward.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-02-42-75

Fairy:  I’m home, Amethyst.  Thanks for not letting me die out there.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-04-51-12

Yay, it worked.  Now just sleep and forget about how hungry you are.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-05-48-17

Scrap found his hidden recharging station I just put in.  I was worried that he would keep killing everything as he siphoned from them.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-09-17-84

Amethyst quit her job to concentrate on her LTW and childcare.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-09-57-06

At least he isn’t a deadbeat.  Now hurry and get married and you won’t have to worry about it anymore.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-10-13-44

Goings on around town #2

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-10-26-84

Well, Fairy was nice enough to find something else for Amethyst to do.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-11-33-24

After breaking the tub, Fairy decided to make a grilled cheese.  This is pretty great since everyone is hungry.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-11-58-66

Fairy:  This is a knee slappin’ great time!
Hey, the stove!

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-12-56-55

Fairy:  Oh yeah.  I forgot I was starving.  Thanks, Am!

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-50-55-41

Fairy:  That thing is squawking again.
Tomato:  I’m too hungry to deal with that noise.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-51-54-49

Amethyst;  Yeah, don’t hurt yourselves trying to help or anything.
The house is not going to last guys.  Everyone picks up the baby, walks to the door, drops the baby just to pick her back up and then feed her/change her.  Then sets her back on the floor before picking her back up and putting her in the crib.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-52-58-74

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-53-05-06

Bowser being a creeper!  Hahaha.  Aww congrats to the new couple, now make babies!

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-53-30-66

Tomato, why do you insist on wanting to help out when she’s just about to fall asleep?

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-57-22-10

Somebody left for work, but never arrived.

TS3W 2015-11-28 17-59-44-07

Somebody else left for work and two seconds returned in labor.  A quick trip to the hospital was in the cards for Amethyst.

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-00-10-96

Aww.  Still going strong.

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-01-12-24

Scrap:  The oldest little human is screaming again.
Fairy:   Well, make it stop!

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-04-01-36

What?!  You can’t do that to her!

Hoyt has moved on finally.

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-23-35-00

It is starting to take 30-45 minutes for sims to decide to do anything.  I lowered the sims population cap in the hopes of slowing down SP immigration without having to turn it off.  I hope it helps because the twins have been crying for an hour.

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-24-04-87

I realized quickly that aging was broken again.  Isn’t Jewel adorable?  She was an infant for at least seven days when it was only supposed to be three.  She got Grandma Pearl’s hair!

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-26-35-51

Fairy was happy that she lived long enough to see grandkids.

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-35-46-07

Oh dear.

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-35-51-61

Hoyt is going to be a father again.

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-36-00-54

Wah?  No one died!  You can’t drink what isn’t supposed to be there!  I checked and he’s back at the beginning of YA.  There are only a couple of deaths and they are old age only.

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-41-58-02

When I realized how cramped the nursery was for three girls, I deleted Amethyst’s want for a boy.  There is just no room for another child.  Oh and the nursery finally got a makeover.  When Jewel moves to the big girl’s room, the twins will share this one.

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-43-48-91

Scrap:  I think we can squeeze another in if you want to squeeze one out.
Amethyst:  I think I’ll pass.

TS3W 2015-11-28 18-44-48-01

Scrap really likes the girls.

TS3W 2015-11-28 19-06-40-15

Why can’t you just sleep in a bed like a big boy?

TS3W 2015-11-28 19-10-47-79

Full moon.  Ugh.  He will probably stay in this form for the rest of his life.  I had to change him to human earlier to get him into CAS so I could offer him up for download.

Having a birthday does not mean she stops crying.  Ever.

Tom and Fairy:  Wooo, she’s right.  You are a great mommy.  Keep up the hard work!

She is soooo cute.

TS3W 2015-11-28 19-21-59-59

Jewel:  Kill monshter!

Tomato:  Grrrrr!
You were just next to a bed, idiot.
Amethyst:  I can’t tell what stinks more, your potty or your father.

Amethyst:  Mommy is going to dump the potty on daddy.

TS3W 2015-11-28 20-02-06-25

Onyx has a stalker!  If you notice they don’t have portraits, it’s because my game does not recognize sims in their career outfits for some reason.

Last, but not least, Randall makes his debut.  He is the younger brother of Brandi and the only boy for Tam and Cedrick.  Yet another cutie!

TS3W 2015-11-28 23-56-02-72

I almost forgot Raquel!  She is the toddler from the last update.  She belongs to Wesker Bedlam and my Razzberry Shiraz.

Pregnancies:  Vofura Vajjer is 51 hours along with another grandkid for Fairy (through Onyx).
Alexandria Fusion-Taffy and Hoyt Bedlam are expecting a child together.
Fern Heartleaf-Vanderberg is in labor as we speak with her second child with Sebastian, who has since passed away from old age.

We will start the next update with the birthdays of the twins!

Chapter 2.1

TS3W 2015-09-14 12-31-07-53

Last time, Onyx was almost left to die in the cold, then there were birthdays and we said goodbye to the older set of triplets.  This was followed by five of the most boring days ever until the last birthdays happened and we said goobye to Sapphire and Citrine.

A/N 11/28/15:  Please note that this update has been waiting to be posted since Sept. 14.  I just sort of forgot I uploaded it.

Chapter 1.7

So, I had an update all completed last week (June/July-ish) and was ready to be uploaded and posted.  I then got distracted for a few days with random things that needed to be downloaded.  I went in and made my title shot and got Windows Live Writer open to insert it.

The post was empty.  Gone.  Zilch.

TS3W 2015-07-03 04-13-45-65

All that is left (basically) is this title pic that took forever to make because I was playing in photoshop with bevels and shit.  I tried a million other things, but this came out pretty neat.

So, I have lost 5 sim days and only have a handful of pics to show for it.

TS3W 2015-06-28 19-48-46-47

Last time, the first set of triplets aged up to young adult and got jobs.  A lot of the family were able to get skills done, surprisingly.  Bonehilda was bought and wreaked havoc.  Pearl failed to save a paparazzi and the family went to some parties around town.  Eventually, the youngest set of triplets had their birthdays too.  They never got honor roll, but they did well enough to roll for their traits.

Holy crap!  So, I was nominated for the Liebster Award twice by (The Tart ISBI and The Dreamsicle BISBI) Umbramuse and also by itsjulie for my main blog, Jenn’s Junkyard.  I’m pretty amazed by this.  I think the only other thing I was nominated for was the loony bin.

I prefer not to be.

2. Okay, let’s get serious. Why did you decide to write a sim legacy/challenge/story/clusterf**k?
Right after Pets, I started the Vinson EPIC legacy.  A week after that I started the Tart’s.  I started the EPIC because it was a new challenge (and I proudly state that I am the first one to complete it) and also because my friend Styxlady was one of the co-creators.  I started the Tart’s after reading A Berry Crazy ISBI and in fact, her Blackberry Sorbet was my founder’s spouse.

3. Do you have a favorite sim from your challenge/legacy family? It’s okay, the others don’t have to know.
I actually do not get attached to my sims.  Not even a little bit.  If I had to choose one, everyone knows Ivory Mist would probably murder me in my sleep if I did not name her.  She is my assassin, who has done a prison challenge (failed), then did a perfect genetics challenge (failed) and a homemaker challenge (failed).  She was then whisked away to be in the Kahekili random legacy for a few chapters.  Now she just hangs out in my neighborhoods with Colin and making me babies.

Here she is before she was domesticated by with Colin.  It has also been my header on facebook for years.

4. Are you the only Simmer in your family? If so, do they think you’re totally crazy for bossing around a bunch of little pixels?
Yes, I am the only one.  Mostly if I am reading a story and LOL, someone will ask what is funny.  I just say “Sims” and they run away screaming.

5. What’s your favorite Sims 3 expansion and why?
World Adventures, because I love doing the tombs.  There’s something about a sim on fire that amuses me greatly and mine tend to catch fire quite easily.

6. What do you love the most about the Sims 3 (or the Sims 4), besides sating that god complex?
All the ways that you can kill them.

7. Would you rather Nick Alto, Gunther Goth, or Geoffrey Landgraab? For any lady lovers: Vita Alto, Cornelia Goth, or Nancy Landgraab.
None of the above, but if I HAD to choose, I’d do a Landgraab.

8. Favorite world? Custom, store, or EP are all acceptable.
I think my favorite is Sunlit Tides.  It’s playable for long periods of time with no lag.  I don’t necessarily enjoy the default sims there, but the world itself is gorgeous.

9. Are there any other video games you enjoy playing?
I play tons of video games.  I have recently completed Dragon 1, 2 and 3.  I just bought Final Fantasy XIV, which is downloading as we speak.  The family recently conned me into trying Clash of Clans, which now I am completely addicted to.  I have Final Fantasy XIII-3 on the PS3 going and Final Fantasy XII on the PS2 going.  I have completed all of these games several times actually.  I do have Titanfall, in fact I did a major computer upgrade just to play it on the recommended settings and then found I was not a big fan of the game.  Just to clarify, I am a complete and utter fan of Final Fantasy 1 – 13.  I have them all.

10. What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?
I will listen to just about anything, but I pretty much only listen to Metallica, Linkin Park and Dead by Sunrise currently.  I’m old, so I do prefer my 80’s music to anything else and probably always will.

11. And finally the most important question of all: Coke or Pepsi? Admission that Dr. Pepper is the one true soda is also acceptable.
Neither.  I drink water most of the time (flavored not that tap water shit).  I do have Cherry Dr. Pepper, Root Beer and Sunkist Orange sitting in the fridge too.

Questions asked by itsjulie

1.  If you were stranded on a desert island with one of the sim characters from your story – which one would you like it to be?
Probably Ivory Mist.  She would probably spend her days trying to kill me, so at least I would have something to do besides cry that I don’t have a shower or internet.

2.  How long have you been playing the sims for and what got you started?
I started playing just before Pets came out, so probably in August of 2011.  I think it all started when I played Sims Social for about a week (and disliked it).  I found out about Sims 3 through that and bought The Sims Deluxe (base game and Ambitions).  Within the month I had everything up to Pets.

3.  What other hobbies do you have outside of simming, blogging and writing.

I like to read.  Our family also has invested in some RC cars and we are building a racetrack on our side yard to race.  I also play other games and watch movies.

4.  What is your favourite sim trait and why?
Family Oriented and because my sims tend to have hundreds of children.

5.  Do you think there is an age limit to when you should be playing sims, or an age when it is not acceptable anymore?

Nah.  I think when I finally get bored, I will just stop playing.

6.  Where do you get the inspiration from for your writing?
I do not write.  I am commentary style.  I usually base it on what is going on in game or something from the thought bubbles.

7.  What do you love most about the Sims game.  What keeps you playing it?
I have no clue.  I think it’s all the challenges out there for the game.  I love doing challenges and legacies.

8.  How seriously do you take your writing?  Is it just for fun or would you like to make a living out of it one day?
I have 0 (ZERO!!!) artistic talent.  I will not ever write for fun or profit.  Nothing I do is serious anyway.

9.  Which are your favourite world, expansion pack and premade sim?
I hate premade sims with a passion.  I will marry them into a family, but only if the rules explicitly require it.  My favorite world is Sunlit Tides and my favorite expack is World Adventures.

10.  Five sim traits that describe you.
Haha!  Grumpy, family oriented, slob, loser, and great sense of humor.

11.  Tell me a random fact about yourself.
I absolutely detest shopping of any kind and I will commit murder before ever going to a mall.
