Sims Sunday: Vooooh, Girbitz!

We started off with a big birthday party for Fern and her brother Friday.

Shockingly, no one peed themselves!

I wasn’t feeling very creative, so I chose an outfit for Fern kind of at random.

Then I slapped a ton of makeup on her face, because teenage girls.

Meanwhile, that stray dog stopped by again. Only a Sim dog would be barred from entry due to a recessed floor light.

Now that Fern was growing up, I thought it was time to start working on Girbitz. I sent Eldritch over to reconnoiter the situation.

Gosh, what a pretty little pink cottage he has!

Pale olive green and violent pink. I see.

But to his credit, he didn’t seem to mind when Eldritch cornered him in the bathroom to ask if he was single.

The answer is no, he’s dating someone. But I can work with that.

Then he got hungry. Retreat! Quick, before he starves to death!

There ya go. Drink up, little buddy.

The next day I sent Fern over.

“Um… hello? I was told my betrothed lived here?”

Awkward silence.

Whoops, he’s hungry again. Retreat!

And so it goes…

Update I forgot to add, for those of you who didn’t play the Sims 2 University expansion pack, “Girbitz! Girbitz! Vooooh, girbitz!” is an annoying thing that the Sims cheer. Some random player was thoughtful enough to upload it to YouTube:

One of those things that happens so often, it gets etched into your brain!

  • It looks like he lives in what Hollywood imagines a brothel looks like. Very “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.”

    Are ya sure about this guy….

    I had a vampire in one game who was a coward, and his favourite colour was pink. (I got him to turn one of my Sims. He was at least useful for that.)

  • I love this guy! And it’s so funny that you have to leave him alone to eat or he’ll starve to death. I never broke down and bought Late Night because I heard it was so glitched up. This is hilarious, though. I’m in love with Girbitz’s sense of style. I think you should let him redecorate Fern’s house after he inevitably moves in!

  • Maybe she should bring a big Jug O’ Blood with her when she visits?
    There are worse colors than pink. Give me a minute and I might be able to think of one…

  • A Sims party where no one pees her pants is kind of disappointing now. It’s like a party with my relatives where no one sneaks out to her truck for a nip of liquor they don’t want to share with anyone else. It wouldn’t be right.

    his house looks like Christina Aguilera’s.
