One thing that happened this week is that I played host to Wonko the Sane. (I love these stage names!) He reminded me a little bit of
Frohike Langly, my favorite Lone Gunman.
He had a few spectacular failures.
But finished strong!
Another thing that happened is, I discovered that host requests expire! Someone else sent me a host request, but I didn’t have time to host before it ran out. Sorry!
If I don’t host your Sim, please just re-send… I’m not ignoring anyone, I promise!
Splutz played for tips to make a little spending money. It didn’t go well.
I gave her the stage name “Splutztastic!”
I’m so happy that Showtime has brought back the Photo Booth! Not seen since the days of Sims 2: photo booth snapshots you can hang up on your walls.
I got a laugh out of this: at Eldritch’s birthday party, Dallas peed himself. And immediately distanced himself from the puddle.
“Puddle? What puddle?” A true politician!
Splutz later auditioned for her first real gig. Her “invisible box” routine doesn’t seem to be wowing the proprietor.
But when she finished her routine, he was super stoked!
Or maybe he just had ulterior motives! These two started autonomously flirting while I was sitting at my desk just eating my lunch and minding my own business.
He really digs her!
Pity he’s too pretty to have kids with her.
Splutz’s first performance was a failure. At least she didn’t kill anyone with these knives.
Oops, I mean, “It’s too bad she didn’t kill anyone with these knives.”
As for little Eldritch, when she grew into a Young Adult the game gave her the “Evil” trait. I played around with outfits for a long time before I settled on this one.
It’s great, right? Classy? Look at those pockets hanging out the bottom of her cut-offs! LOVE IT.
The mystery of her strange gray pallor was solved when she grew up and turned into a vampire. I guess it skipped a generation. (As you may recall, her grandfather Ethan Parrot was a vampire.)
I cured her of her vampirism at the Science Center, but she got to keep the nifty gold eyes.
For Eldritch, I went with the Singer career. You start out by performing for tips and giving Singing Telegrams to random Sims around town.
While wearing a stupid outfit! (The only bad thing about these outfits is that they remind me of those cymbal-banging clockwork monkeys*. And those things have always creeped me out.)
Delivering singing telegrams gives you a lot of chances to meet other Sims and check out their houses. Which is how I found this wonderful collection of chairs in the dining room of one of the pre-made houses.
There is nothing not to like about this final snapshot.
You can actually add a pair of bunny ears to the bunny pajama outfit, but I thought this was a little over the top. (Deadpan.)
* Today I learned that the real name of the cymbal-banging clockwork monkey toy is Musical Jolly Chimp.. Thanks, Wikipedia, for making my future nightmares more accurate!
