With her lifetime wish fulfilled, it was time for Pelikan to start looking for a Significant Other. Sometimes this town really seems deserted!
I got so frustrated and bored that I decided to leave her sexuality to fate. I resolved to have her hit the first Sim that wandered onto the lot regardless of gender, marital status, or whether or not they seemed compatible.
Meet LaShawn Custer, a flirty, single, young adult, male Sim. Well that’s kinda boring, but a promise is a promise.
I’m having trouble getting past the hat. Who wears a hat like that?
Pelikan didn’t seem to mind the hat.
Whoa girl, save something for your wedding night!
An all-underpants proposal. How romantic!
Seeing Klango’s “Sim Venus on the Halfshell” reminds me of his painting of the week:
And speaking of successful romance novelists, Klango is making a fortune from his two romance novels! Heaving Bosoms pulls in §2,302 per week. The Saucy Medieval Scotsman earns a whopping §2,475 per week. (I love naming their novels!)
Anyway. The next day Pelikan and LaShawn were wed in the front yard. This wedding resulted in six guests getting stuck on the lot and having to be freed with the resetsim cheat. That’s a personal record!
Events took their course, and soon Pelikan was barfing in the toilet and having food cravings.
In order to improve the birthing odds, I had her mediate while the Kids radio station played endlessly in the background.
Whenever she wandered away, some other household member would change the radio station. I can’t say I blame them!
After the station was switched to Pop, I was startled to hear a Simlish version of a song I’ve been enjoying in real life: Esmee Denters’ “Get Me Outta Here.” A lot of artists have recorded songs for The Sims games in Simlish but I had never really paid attention before.
I wasn’t able to find a YouTube video with the Simlish version. But in searching for it I solved two other mysteries – why the English/real life versions of Katy Perry’s “Hot ‘N Cold” and Lily Allen’s “Smile” always seemed so familiar.
(I hate Katy Perry so much. She’s the shitty bland American version of Lily Allen.)
(In looking for all this stuff I ran across this hilarious Twilight: New Moon parody trailer for Sims 3 World Adventures.)
(By the way, this section represents a 45-minute digression from writing this post. I don’t know why Pixie Lott isn’t available on either iTunes or Amazon. If she was, rest assured I would not have gone to the lengths I went to, in order to snag an MP3 of “Mama Do” for my listening library.)
Um, right. Anyway! Pelikan meditated so much to that annoying Kids radio station that she developed the ability to Zeneport! This is like teleporting, except that you have to meditate for several hours before you can do it.
It’s… kind of anticlimactic, actually.
While Pelikan was at the spa, Olivia died of old age.
After visiting the spa, Pelikan returned home and immediately went into labor.
NOT THE RUG!!! NOT THE RUG!!!
She raced to the hospital and gave birth to twins. I named them Quimby (Bookworm, Genius) and Quark (Athletic, Loves the Outdoors).
“I came back from the dead for THIS?”
