The game was so difficult this week! Stuck moodlets, plummeting Needs that could not be kept up, and Sims getting trapped in action loops. Thank goodness for the “resetsim” cheat, that’s all I can say!

I’m trying to boost Eldritch’s singing career. But it’s hard when the game won’t let me send her out via SimPort, for no apparent reason. Instead, she’s stuck spending hours and hours singing for tips.
Here she sang all night and into the dawn, when a deer appeared.
She immediately had a wish to “Watch Deer.”
Eldritch: “Oh, the beauty of nature!”
Deer: “YOU SUCK AND I HATE YOU.”
Deer are such jerks.
While Eldritch was merrily singing away, things were getting dire at home. Solomon’s mood got so bad that he just shorted out right then and there.
When Eldritch got home, I had her try coaxing a better mood out of Joshua. You can deliver a Sing-A-Gram to almost anyone, so I had her deliver him a “Cheer Up” Sing-A-Gram.
Eldritch: “Did it work? Are you cheered up?”
Joshua: [Awkward smile]
The next night, she had a gig scheduled at the park. The venue wasn’t exactly packed.
But the two or three audience members were stoked!
Dude, seriously: chill. She’s not that good.
She played all night…
She played so long that even the stray cat (his name is Henry) fell asleep.
She played until well into the next day.
She played until her last remaining die-hard fan couldn’t stop fantasizing about taking a nap on the park furniture, himself.
Wait, hold up…
Wow, that guy is really ugly. I made a note of his name, for when little Fern is ready for a husband!
At this point I realized that something had gone wrong. I couldn’t cancel her “Play Gig” action. She was stuck, the poor thing. I reset her, and we all went home.
Back at home, things had gone dire again.
Then this happened.
Joshua had donned his official genie outfit; I don’t know why. Solomon peed himself. And then shorted out, I guess from embarrassment. And not only is no one else cleaning it up, they’re all standing around in the puddle!
Hey, kid, cheer up! WHY SO BLUE????
