I didn’t spend as much time playing this weekend as usual, because Japan. I don’t even know what to say. Except, “Japan.” It is just so heartbreaking, with the worst yet to come.
Plus there’s that extra frisson of terror because I live near a major fault line, in earthquake territory, as well as in a tsunami evacuation zone.
But what else is there to do, once you have donated what you can to the relief organization of your choice, but keep on living your life. So here we are.
Time for another Alphabetti wedding. I took a risk and tried having the wedding held in the park. Surprise! It didn’t work. Some day, I swear!
Adirim looks pretty cheerful for just having been left at the altar.
They were wed in a small ceremony in the front yard. And actually this is the second attempt. Bad luck with weddings this time around!
On their honeymoon night, the bathtub broke. How ironic, considering that’s how they met.
I love the views out their windows.
I have uploaded the lot to the Exchange, and you can download it here. It comes complete with Adirim Alphabetti, but you can kick her out and move in your own Sims, I promise my feelings won’t be hurt!
At around this time I realized that they are worth about §2.2 million. Lacking anything better to do, I went around and bought EVERY SINGLE BUSINESS IN TOWN. So the Alphabettis basically own Bridgeport now.
You know what? It’s a real pain. It takes two of them the entire day to collect all the funds. Why don’t they have direct deposit in Sims 3?
Anyway, soon Adirim was pregnant, and Chadrick kept wanting to talk to her belly, and listen to her belly.
I was particularly glad to see this baby born, because that lavender pregnancy outfit was driving me bonkers. I itch to recolor them. Maybe one day the game will let us customize their maternity clothes.
At any rate, welcome baby girl Felicity.
I like to think baby Sims watch their own plumbobs like a mobile. I totally would!
The theme of “bad parties” continued with her birthday party. Her mom set her on the floor, and then everyone wandered away to do something else.
Better than Chadrick, though, who awoke from a sound sleep to turn into an old man.
This happened when Chadrick phoned his job to retire. Somehow toddler Felicity got tapped to perform the “Cheer” action. Since toddlers can’t cheer, the game stretched the toddler skin onto an adult skeleton.
I was quite grateful when she went back to toddler size after cheering.
“Can you say filthy stinking hovel?”
“Fiwthy stinking hovew!”
