A.16 Tips for Keeping that Bounce House Safe

Howdy readers! Lately it’s been harder to update, now that my position at work has changed to something where I’m not at a desk all day. Not that I would use work time to do sims stuff or anything…..anyway…..we open up this chapter with Sara, once again left at home all alone with a houseful of hungry, smelly kids while Kurtis runs off to work. I didn’t take any pictures because seriously, do they need any more ammunition against their marriage? Nope.

In the midst of taking care of Amnesia, Sara completely forgets her daughter in favor of scolding her oldest son for…something. We’ll find out in a minute.

“Move it, kid, your rude thought bubble is in my way.” (Random kid is Nigel, bee tee dubs, and he came home with Al.)

“Hmmm…I’ve never done this before…I’m not sure where to start…”

20140623-122803-44883332.jpg

“Oh well, may as well just jump right in! YELL!! YELLING IN SIMLISH!! WAVING OF THE ARMS IN ANGER!!!”

20140623-123048-45048470.jpg

“What?! What did I do, please don’t hit me!!”

20140623-123212-45132560.jpg

“I DON’T KNOW, WE’RE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL YOU GET A NEGATIVE MOODLET AS A RESULT OF THIS SCOLDING TO FIND OUT AND OF COURSE I WON’T HIT YOU, EA WOULD NEVER ALLOW THAT!!”

20140623-140939-50979466.jpg

“There. How’d I do?”

“Uh, person person MINUS, duh!”

20140623-153958-56398692.jpg

“Whatever, kid, go take a time out….what is it I’m punishing you for, anyway?”

20140623-155041-57041478.jpg

“Bad grades. And by the way, that wish I just had to hang out with you? Consider it CANCELLED.”

20140623-165203-60723622.jpg

“In your dreams, shortstop. Only real Sara can cancel a wish, and she won’t because this is a wishacy, so ‘duh’ yourself.”

“Oh please, you’re so Sims 2, Mother. It’s my hot body and I do what I want!”

20140623-181606-65766833.jpg

“He can’t do that, right?”

‘Fraid so, Sara. He disappeared a wish to hang out with you even though I locked it in. Alopecia’s magic.

20140623-194851-71331543.jpg

Shouldn’t you be in a corner somewhere…?

“Are you kidding me? I love the OUTDOORS. Ain’t no corner on this lot big enough to handle all this, know what I’m saying?”

…not really, no.

20140623-200055-72055567.jpg
Inside the house — where Alopecia SHOULD be — we find sad, hungry Amnesia.

“Mama still forgot me, didn’t she?”

….looks like it.

“Why I always forgotten?” ::sadface::

I don’t know…it started out as a joke, but now it just seems sad…

For once, Amnesia’s not the only kid forgotten in the Simptoms house at the mo’; that kid Nigel’s been ignored the whole time he’s been here so he’s just chilling with the cats.

“Me can haz treat yes?”

“I want to scratch that.”

20140623-200917-72557809.jpg

“Aww, here little kitty, have this cat treat I just happen to be carrying around in my pocket for just such an occasion!”

“YAS YAS YAS!!”

20140624-154649-56809579.jpg

“I’m going to scratch that.”

20140624-155219-57139449.jpg

“All right!! I’m now better friends with this cat then the kid I came home with…”

20140701-085254-31974709.jpg

“I am scratching this.”

20140707-124308-45788499.jpg

“THE SENSATION OF FABRIC RIPPING BENEATH MY CLAWS….THE ABSOLUTE POWER OF UTTER WANTON DESTRUCTION…..IT IS GLORIOUS!!!”

20140707-124505-45905775.jpg

“Seriously, where did that kid even go?”

20140707-125132-46292433.jpg

“I need new friends. The ones I have are all garbage.”

20140707-125702-46622194.jpg

No, kid, YOU’RE garbage! Open your freaking eyes; who do you think you are, French Stewart? Consider yourself out of the spouse running, Nigel.

“But….I like the cat….here, is this better?”

20140707-131015-47415335.jpg

TOO FREAKING LATE, NIGEL! You were the weakest link. Good-bye.

So. Yeah. That’s all I’ve got for now, guys. In fact, I haven’t actually gotten to play since early May, and, although I’ve been trying to drag out what pictures I took then to last as long as possible, I no longer have enough left for even the semblance of an update.  But anyway, when I DO come back, be prepared for:

DRAMA!!!

BIRTHDAYS!!!!

MOVING!!!!

ROMANCE!!!

CATS!!!!

AND EVEN MOAR STUFF AND THINGS!!!!!!!!

OR MAYBE NONE OF THOSE THINGS!!!!!!

  1. Oh dear! You’re all caught up! Want to write some of MY posts? Bleagh….

    I started laughing over Al needing to be grounded outside and continued through the kitty destruction. Bravo :).

    I bet you’re not caught up on the Callenders.

    • I am NOT caught up on the Callenders. But working in it. Slowly, but surely…llama help me if I get caught up with THEM.

      And I see the Samples are back…..huzzah! See, you didn’t need me to write your updates after all. 😉

  2. I wish I was able to do sim stuff at work. Instead, I have to suffer under a crazy, micromanaging vegan who has absolutely no idea what she’s doing, or what the point of a local history/reference library is. I have to watch her all day so she doesn’t throw stuff away. Oh. What’s this? A 200 year old map of the city? This obviously belongs in the bin …*breathes deeply*

    ANYWAY …

    I love Alopecia. At the moment, he completely has my heir vote. Although, the British underdog supporter in me has a soft spot for Amnesia. It’s hard to be the forgotten child. Maybe the scolding counted as a hang out in the crazy world that is EA programming? Also, while you’re doing Susan’s update, can you also do mine? That’ll be great 😛

    • Wow, Jo. I swear we’re alternate versions of each other; you just described my life. My version also does things like: “Oh, hey, we don’t need a reference section anymore! That’s so outdated! And you know an *excellent* way to deal with the budget cuts? Stop staffing the children’s library! Kids don’t need supervision anymore, el oh el oh el oh el!!”…….-_- Mine’s not vegan, though.

      I think Al’s my favorite, too; Rex was winning, until he got his new trait. Poor Amy, though…I kinda see her growing up to seek revenge on them all.

      No, only YOU can write Arya! Get on that!
