I had the WORST time trying to get Ferris Wheel Alphabetti to the altar this week! But I’m getting ahead of myself.
First: is it just me, or are the vampires in this game getting uglier every day? Yeesh.
Ferris Wheel kept getting these typically crackpot Celebrity opportunities. Like “Get celebrity points for dancing at such-and-such bar for four hours.”
And so he danced, all by himself, until he got the points.
You know you’ve had an epic night on the town if you pee yourself when you get home.
Around this time, Ferris Wheel had a random wish to “Chat with Summer Fischer.” And I was like, “Who?”
Summer is the stylist who gave Ferris Wheel his makeover last week. I guess her memory really stuck with him, because he was quite smitten.
And it looked like the attraction was mutual!
I had Ferris Wheel invite her out to the dive bar just for laughs. They had a blast! They got all hopped up on drinks and kind of went nuts.
Here’s a clip of Ferris Wheel dancing on the bar, while Summer plays on the drum set (badly).
(Please note Ferris Wheel’s “formal sandals.” Summer dressed him in those. It’s not my fault.)
What followed was a long string of mishaps. I had Ferris Wheel throw a house party, and Summer was TOTALLY STOKED to be there.
But before they could start the romantic stuff, Ferris Wheel’s mom Wilma died and SPOILED THE WHOLE PARTY.
Look how good they are together, though! Ferris Wheel just scored 250 happiness points simply for chatting with her!
For the next few days I kept inviting her over, and she’d say she was coming over, but then she never showed. (Why do Sims always say they’ll come over when their job starts in like ten minutes?)
Finally he managed to get Summer to come over. And when he invited her into the hot tub, she decided to go skinny-dipping!
But before they could do more than cuddle, she got tired and up and left. Sigh.
We had another foggy day in Bridgeport. I love it when that happens!
When I wasn’t paying attention, Ferris Wheel made… this. I think it’s grilled cheese
Hooray, Summer came over!
Boo, she left like five minutes later. But at least she invited Ferris Wheel to her party!
Gosh, he looks like a real fun party dude, doesn’t he?
Turns out Summer has a hot tub, too. And hers has a pretty great view of the city!
After a few more missed connections, I finally got Ferris Wheel and Summer together at the super-romantic park that overlooks the city. I was all ready to have him propose marriage!
Oh wait, she has to use the bathroom.
Okay, here we go!
Oh wait, she’s really tired.
Now I just had to get them married!
As near as I can figure, Summer works all day, then comes home and throws a party. Also, if you take a Sim who is throwing a party, and you invite them to YOUR party, but the times conflict? Not only does that Sim not come to your party… NOBODY COMES.
Wanna know how sad a Sim is when they throw a wedding party, and nobody shows?
Really, really sad.
Okay, so I decided to shift tactics. Instead of inviting Summer to our party, I would send Ferris Wheel to HER party, and have them get married there.
But it turns out that you can’t click on your beloved and “Get Married” when you’re not on your home lot.
She seemed to realize this.
Finally I just GAVE THE HELL UP. Forget the parties. Forget the romance. I invited her over, and she showed up, and I had them get married right then and there, without a single guest in attendance.
Ferris Wheel: “I wuv you so much!”
Summer: “Best party ever!”
Woo hoo, indeed!
