Long time, no see. Last time, Apple escaped to her death, fails happened left and right, girl and boy got named and two more brats were born.
Jade and Moonie are off to put food in the cats bowls of their new house.
Peanut Brittle wanted to feed the cats too, but realized halfway there that it was already being done.
Eggplant found the basement filled with every wonderful thing a sim could want. He chose the bass.
The oldest of Moonie and Eggplant’s SIX children is Boysenberry.
Next is Thistle, who is sitting outside in the dark.
Tutti Fruiti aka “Girl” is excited about something on the wall.
Tamarind aka “Boy” is enjoying a seat in front of the fire.
The newest additions consist of Wintergreen
and last is Ivy Berry.
We can’t forget our four legged friends!
Lifesaver’s mate, Berry
and one of their offspring, Jam. Berry and Lifesaver will probably leave us this update (I’m play-updating for once, so this is just a guess).
I really want to try and get a sense of the kids this update. It’s almost time for an heir to be found.
Thistle gets bored outside and comes up to tickle Wintergreen. Everyone got makeovers in their favorite color except for Jade, PB and the toddlers.
There are two wine cellars in this house. I deleted one and converted the other to a mausoleum.
The nursery is pretty spacious and the twins love it. I am so glad they are doing something useful.
Gotta love a house that thoughtfully has a shower and a smoke alarm in all the rooms with a fire danger.
Get out of the sprinklers and go to school! The garden was then cleared out because everything was horrifying quality.
Ivy: I find the potty!
Wintergreen: Me too!
Tuttie Fruiti: No, Lifesaver, you cannot go to school with us.
The chances of Moonie completing her LTW is slim to none, but at least she will have completed one skill.
Everyone was gone when I heard screaming. It took a while to find out that Ivy was left in the high chair without food because Grandpa PB is an asshole.
Moonie takes a break from sculpting to feed the two and then heads off to record a commercial.
You could be at home saving us from a babysitter, but noooo, you’d rather sit out in front of work screaming at the sidewalk.
The babysitter took two hours to get up to the tots. He got Wintergreen, changed his clothes and stood at the crib for a while. Then everyone came home, so he set him on the ground and left.
Hahaha. Everyone is upset because there is no light in the entry.
Jade was directed to her bed for the first time. She gets her own “apartment” which is actually the butler room. I did take the liberty of removing the 2nd kitchen, because that is just begging for people to prepare food upstairs and walk it downstairs to cook it.
Okay, I take it back. The babysitter isn’t so bad after all.
TF got to Ivy just in time.
Boysenberry found out he can do laundry. Yay.
Huh? Someone is learning a skill?
Well isn’t that interesting. Tamarind finds the potion table.
PB had all the spoiled food in his inventory from being Portered. Thistle is the one cleaning it up. Also, cousin Dmitri came home with the kids today.
PB: This place is disgusting!
Then do something about it!
PB: Fine, but I’m not happy about it!
Dmitri: Omg, your house is disgusting and you haven’t even lived in it for a full day.
Thistle: No one invited you over, so feel free to leave.
PB: That bowl of brains is gross.
Boysenberry: What stinks?
Thistle: Omg, shut up. I’m getting to it. Damn.
If you were wondering about Moonie, she went to Glacier’s house for a party.
Vanilla was seen very, very pregnant. I know her husband was killed off to make the town run without lag (along with a lot of other Tart relatives).
This is what gets me. How the hell did that happen?!? I know they went on a date, but I don’t recall any hanky panky! It was seven months ago though, but still. You would think I would remember this.
I got called away when I got the pop up that Tamarind blew himself up.
With the mess in the kitchen all clean, nothing much is going on now. Most are just standing around except Eggplant, who is playing games.
Dmitri: Now that I have my appetite back, where’s the food?
Good luck with that, Moonie isn’t home dude. No one else seems hungry, so he might be waiting awhile.
Tutti: Good, maybe that will make him leave and I can finish my book without having to listen to his stomach growl.
Tamarind is not a favorite, but man he is really impressing me with his skilling attempts. He has one logic point, one martial arts point and he almost has an athletic point. All in one day.
Oh, you were wondering about the other three? They have a combined ZERO skill points.
Moonie bought the inventing skill books on her way home from the party. It’s her only chance at this point.
Eggplant must have gotten bored with video games. Now he just blocks the doorway so that PB can’t get in.
Thistle: Whatcha doin’?
Tamarind: Impressing Jenn.
Thistle: What are you doing, Tut?
Tutti: You heard Tam, right? I’m hoping to impress Jenn too.
Thistle: Sell out!
Tutti: Are you impressed yet?
Nope, keep going.
Eggplant found the way to the pool.
Thistle: C’mere, brat. I’ll impress Jenn in my own way.
Thistle: There. Are you impressed?
Sure. Next time, can you do it under 5 hours?
Thistle: That’s not moving in with us is it?
Hell no. Your great-grandpa should be grateful that I’m not kicking his ass out to go raise it.
That moment when you go to click on “Continue sculpture” but instead you scrap it. Poor Moonie had to start over.
Oh no! Another fridge!
Tutti: Hurry up, grandma! I’m going to die of starvation!
Ivy: So am I!
Omg. I forgot about her! The house is just a bit too big for an ISBI family, I think.
Sapphire and Peach join us tonight.
Plum! It’s always a treat when the founder comes to visit.
Ivy: For the love of God, FEED ME!
Tyr! I will love you forever if you feed her.
Are you serious? Poor baby. I did go around and put in the baby monitors while she was trapped in the crib, but she couldn’t use them until she was taken out. So, thanks for that Tyr, at least.
Remember when Jade was at the fridge? Yeah, Tutti never got food and now she is starving and about to pass out.
Yay for taking a shower after exercising. Boo for getting distracted on the way to bed by your famous distant relative.
Thistle is making food! Yes!
You can’t do this to me. There are 35 bathrooms in this house and 5 other starving people to cook. Go!
Damn it, Thistle! -5
Tutti, you have failed this ISBI. -5
Does anyone else think of the Facts of Life when I call her that (albeit Tootie spelled her name different back then). Or am I just dating myself? Is it sad that I remember being in love with George Clooney wayyyy back then when I was a little kid?
Still crying, although she has been fed. By who is anyone’s guess. Now she just crapped herself and needs a change.
You’re not going to escape that easy, Mister can’t keep it in his pants.
Tam, Eggplant and Boysenberry found there beds at some point.
Omg, they finally stopped crying.
You’re damn right you should! Tamarind is being naughty and never woke up this morning.
It was only a matter of time. Takes from one fridge and walks 30 miles to the counter next to the kitchen fridge. Said fridge outside is deleted right now.
She wasn’t even to the counter when it happened. RIP Berry, I’ll miss you (along with everyone else).
It was a field trip day, so no one ate at school. Moonie called everyone to eat before getting out the moodlet manager for the mourning moodlets.
Thistle: Please, please hit me with that next. Look, I’m cleaning!
Moonie: You’re last, failpants. (-5)
Eggplant got a promotion! Woo! Only 7 more to go, loser!
How long have you been stuck there?
Ivy: FOR MONTHS! GET ME OUT!
Ivy: Bless you, strange old lady.
Jade: I’m not old. No wrinkles here, brat.
Yeah, Jade won’t even be a full adult for another 37 days. THIRTY-SEVEN! Omg. PB. He has 70 days.
Ah shit. (-5). The baby monitor doesn’t have a “PUT ME TO BED, ASSHOLES’S” option.
Moonie: Hold on a sec. I foresee a fail.
Tamarind: Just standing here because I am a dumbass.
Moonie: You need to talk to your son, Eggplant. First he skips school on a field trip day and now he forgets he’s been potty trained for 13 years.
Tamarind: Why the hell didn’t you tell me to go pee?
Not my job. Seriously. It’s your damn bladder, you take care of it.
Oh dear God, visitors. Let’s see
Sims: Fruit Parfait, Blackberry , Caramel, Fudge and Apple
Cats: Elmer, Pixel, Ingot, Cookie, Gummie, Igor, and Peanut Butter.
Ai yai yai.
It’s cat central station! There was no space for pets, so I converted the garage for them. I might have mentioned that already, but I’m old and that was yesterday. Sometimes I even forget what I ate five minutes after eating. Don’t get old, people. It sucks.
Well at least one of them got put to bed.
*This is the same fail, not a new one. In fact, his energy bar is maxed, so he’s been there all night*
Tamarind: I think someone should buy a chess table.
Jade: I think you should worry more about the fact that you’ll be passing out in 27 minutes and it’s time for school.
If you go to bed right now and miss school, I think you’ll be the first sim in 9 generations to fail. You will definitely not be in the running for heir on top of that.
What in the world are you doing?
Why? Damn you.
You teens suck.
Well, at least one of you is doing fairly well.
Thistle: I finally impressed you?
No, not really.
Dammit. I hope he likes his nap and makes it to school.
I’m glad you won’t starve, but you do realize that you’re going to pass out when you finish.
Boysenberry: Not before Tutti pees all over the place.
Boysenberry: Told you so. (-5)
Tutti: I keep failing. I FAIL at life. I will never be heiress at this point.
Crying about it doesn’t help, sissy.
Boysenberry: I think that bed is calling my name.
I think you mean school bus.
Boysenberry: Nope! I’m going to bed.
The whole lot of you got really lucky that it is the summer holiday.
Since it’s a holiday, you two can have your birthday early!
And this is a great place to stop for today.
Self wetting (3): -60
Passing out (3): -110
The lovely house was built by Firestarr for Loralie. Loralie generously shared the house with everyone and I snapped it up. I think it would make a wonderful legacy house, baby challenge house, but not an ISBI house. I will probably copy the basement plan and move them to a house that doesn’t have as much room to get lost in. You’ll see in the next update that we almost lost the kids to the social worker because I never remember to check the nursery.
