Today I headed to Pleasantview to play Dustin and Lucy Broke. I took my default replacement skins out almost immediately and was ashamed of myself for doing so. I wasn't used to the shiny, I must confess. So these pics have normal maxis skintones in them. However, after I finished playing I put my new default replacements back in and am determined to give them a real chance this time.

Thursday was Dustin's day off and he invited his friend Heather Ruben over to spend the day with him. Lucy was, of course, making bouquets for most of the day - she was determined to earn her next badge. She took a break for lunch though. And then, at 3:34pm, Lucy gave birth to a healthy baby girl who she named Tiffany, after her paternal grandmother. Tiffany has Dustin's skintone and eyes and Lucy's hair color. Lucy immediately called the nanny service to arrange care for Tiffany during her work hours. Dustin spent some simoleons on a better bookcase and immediately sat down with his cookbooks to gain three cooking points. Lucy was in bed exhausted by 6pm - the birth had taken a lot out of her. Heather was kind enough to pass on her cold to Dustin once again. 
Friday started extremely early with Lucy waking at midnight. From then on, her sleeping schedule was only going to get worse. She spent the wee hours making more bouquets. Dustin served up an extremely unhealthy chips and dip platter for breakfast, but recovered from his cold despite the lack of vitamins. Lucy called her new neighbour, Erik Swain for a chat before it was time for her and Dustin to leave for work. Tiffany's nanny turned out to be heavily in to baby harrassment - bad luck! At work, Lucy broke the FrigglyFreeze machine and tried to fix it with duct tape, but all she accomplished was to get her hair stuck in the intake vent. While she was stuck, several teenagers shoplifted candy and magazines to their hearts' content. Lucy lost a day's pay over the incident. Dustin's day at work was far more productive - he was promoted to Junior Executive. Lucy used some of his bonus money to purchase a remote controlled helicopter for when Tiffany was older, and a dart board for herself. She invited Erik Swain over in the hopes of getting to know him a little better. Dustin cleaned the bathroom and gained a cleaning point for his trouble. Lucy was in bed exhausted by 5:30pm - definitely getting worse. Dustin used some of those promotion bonus simoleons to purchase a chess table for himself. He immediately started practicing to gain a much needed logic point. Then it was time for Tiffany to grow in to a toddler. She looks a lot like Dustin. 
Heather Ruben walked right in to the Broke home without being invited and immediately passed on her cold to Dustin again. Dustin helped Tiffany to earn her first charisma point and Lucy was up at 11pm. She spent this particular all-nighter once again making bouquets. She finally earned her silver flower arranging badge too.
She kept at it through all the night hours of Saturday morning - she wanted to go for the gold next. When Dustin woke, he continued to spend productive parenting time with Tiffany by teaching her a nursery rhyme and also helping her to gain another charisma point. He got over his cold in the meantime. He and Lucy both headed to work and Lucy was in bed exhausted by 4:30pm. Definitely worse. Dustin played chess with townie Jason Menon and gained another logic point, which he needed. He decided it was time to upgrade the dining room chairs before spending some time in front of the bathroom mirror practicing his speech. He gained two much needed charisma points. Lucy was up at 9:30pm, proving once and for all that her sleeping pattern is only going to get worse before there's any light at the end of the tunnel. She gained herself a cooking point while serving up a late dinner of chef salad and also gained a cleaning point when she cleaned the kitchen afterwards. She spent her all-nighter once again making bouquets.
Today I headed to Veronaville to move Jonah Powers in to his first home as an adult.

On Monday morning after decorating his first home to his taste, Jonah called his girlfriend Prof. Virginia Garth to invite her over to see the place. He'd been doing some thinking and decided that when she arrived he would propose to her. After all, he certainly didn't want any children ruining his lifestyle, and she was his only girlfriend past childbearing age. As soon as she arrived, he got down on one knee to her absolute delight. They decided to tie the knot immediately and had a private wedding in the backyard. After a quick makeover for both, they headed to the bedroom for a honeymoon woohoo. 
Later on, Jonah invited Cynthia Kim over in the hopes of getting to know her a lot better. Virginia headed to the computer to look for a job in the slacker career and found it straight away. Now she's employed and Jonah has no immediate plans to find employment. Virginia received a phone call offering a subscription to the cuisine magazine, which she accepted. Jonah and Cynthia became friends and both Virginia and Jonah settled down with the cookbooks to gain a cooking point each. Virginia made a phone call to Ricky Garth for a long chat. The welcome wagon that came to welcome Jonah and Virginia to the neighbourhood included Hermia Kosmokos, who incidentally lives right across the street. Jonah was keen to befriend Hermia and it wasn't long before they were good friends. Jonah and Virginia retired for another woohoo, after which they slept through the night.
On Tuesday morning Virginia invited Ricky Garth over and they finally became friends. Jonah settled down on the couch with a cookbook once more and gained another cooking point. Virginia managed to convince Ricky to clean her house for her while she watched the cooking channel. Later, she purchased a guitar and played it in the hopes of earning some tips. She was surprisingly awesome on guitar and earned $150 in tips before heading off for her first day of work. Jonah invited Hermia over to hang out with him for the afternoon. While at work, one of Virginia's co-workers sold her ballet tickets which turned out not to be tickets to see the ballet troupe said co-worker promised. Virginia demanded a discount but her co-worker refused. Virginia dejectedly sold off the tickets to someone else at a loss. She was promoted to Gas Station Attendant. Jonah earned himself a membership pass to Sue's Secret Kitchen and Virginia used her promotion bonus to purchase an outdoor chess table, which she and Jonah have yet to use. She invited townie teen Jennifer Corsillo over to hang out with her until bedtime.
Jonah started Wednesday morning by serving up a big pancake breakfast for his bride. Virginia invited Jennifer over again and they became friends. Seeing that Virginia was distracted with her friend, Jonah called his girlfriend Roxie Flexor to ask her out on a date. She accepted and they met at their favorite trysting place, Lucky Shack Cards and Drink. After some slow dancing in the middle of the street and an extremely heavy makeout session they ran off to their usual sofa near the bathrooms for a very naked public woohoo. Jonah gave her a lovely backrub and after another makeout session and another sofa woohoo, the date ended with the score of dream date. After a flirtatious suggestion or two, Jonah headed home. Upon arrival home, he gained membership to My Muse - Music & Dance Studio. He managed to clog the toilet and called the repairman to come out immediately. He then invited his friend Cynthia over and after some flirting out in the street they developed a mutual crush. He proceeded to make out with her quite heavily, all while his wife was inside chatting to Jennifer, oblivious. Jonah headed inside to call Celeste Benson for a long chat. Virginia headed off to work and Jonah got a call from townie Troy Go, who gave him a free sample of a television set. Jonah will most likely pass it off as a love gift on one of his many girlfriends. With Virginia at work and Cynthia inside enjoying Virginia's guitar, Jonah invited his friend Hermia over so he could make his move on her as well. They quickly developed a mutual crush. Virginia was promoted to the top of the elder slacker career track - she's now a Convenience Store Clerk. She purchased her first car with the bonus. Jonah cleaned the bathroom and earned a cleaning point for his trouble before spending the evening hanging out with Hermia. They became best friends.

I foresee that very soon Jonah will have illegitimate children all over Veronaville...

Dustin Broke in Pleasantview: 3 Pictures Behind The Cut! )
Today I headed to Veronaville's Academie Le Tour to play the Sharpe household. Edwin Sharpe is in his second semester of junior year, majoring in Biology and Jonah Powers is in his first semester of senior year, majoring in philosophy. Both were recently put on academic probation for partying too hard and not studying at all. Jonah has a bad case of the flu due to a recent cockroach infestation. He has many girlfriends, none of whom know about each other.

On Friday morning Edwin gained a cooking point while making himself a bowl of cereal for breakfast. After breakfast, he buckled down to do two assignments, but that wasn't likely to help him pass - he needed skills. In typical Jonah fashion, Jonah served up a simple lunch of gelatin. Edwin was undeterred from his partying ways even with the threat of being expelled, and decided to call all his friends and invite them to a party. Jonah finally got over his bout of the flu and both of them headed to class. The party was a success. After class, Jonah called his girlfriend, Roxie Flexor to ask her on a date. She agreed and they met at Lucky Shack Cards and Drink. After some romantic slow dancing, they headed inside to sing a terrible duet on the karaoke machine. They thought they were pretty awesome, though. 
This was followed by a heavy makeout session, which led to an extremely public woohoo on a sofa by the bathrooms. Mrs Crumplebottom was far from pleased and told Roxie off for her public nudity (but seemed undisturbed by Jonah's nakedness... guess she thinks he's too hot to wear clothes...) Mrs Crumplebottom was about to find out that nobody in Veronaville cares what she thinks. Jonah and Roxie immediately started making out again and yet again jumped on the sofa for another woohoo. By this time, Mrs Crumpebottom was too busy drinking at the bar to react to what was happening right behind her. The date was a dream date and Jonah headed back home to take a bath. He managed to break the bathtub and called the repairman to come out the following morning.
On Saturday morning Jonah harvested some mouthwatering tomatoes from the tomato plant out back. Edwin spent the morning playing SSX3 on the computer and Jonah invited another girlfriend, Wendy Parker over. As soon as she arrived, he hustled her in to the bedroom for their first woohoo together. 
Edwin called college dormie Thomas Bar for a chat in the hopes of getting to know him better and then planted a fresh crop of tomatoes. Jonah called all his friends for a party and Edwin called Thomas Bar back to invite him over to join said party. They spent the party hanging out and quickly became friends. Both Edwin and Jonah headed to class and everybody at the party had a good time. When he got back from class, Edwin decided to throw a party of his own and settled down to play SSX3 before any of the guests could hog the computer. During the party, Jonah finally made a move on his friend, Demi Capp. They simultaneously became best friends and fell in love. Jonah wasn't about to wait for those flames to die down - he dragged her off to the bedroom for their very first woohoo together. Needless to say, Edwin's party was a smashing success.
On Sunday morning Jonah invited yet another one of his girlfriends, Prof. Virginia Garth over to spend the day with him. Edwin played yet more SSX3 when he got up and Jonah decided to call all his friends to invite them to a sports party. He harvested some very bland oranges from their orange tree as well. Edwin invited his friend Thomas over to join in the festivities and spent the entire party hanging with him. The party was a success and both boys headed to class. When he got home, Jonah called Prof. Virginia Garth to ask her out on a date. They met at Sim Center South for some very romantic moonlit slow dancing, which was all Prof. Virginia required to have a good time. Jonah headed back home immediately afterwards. Edwin spent much of the evening playing SSX3 and Jonah called his girlfriend Demi for a chat. Knowing he would soon be expelled, he invited his only college student girlfriend, Wendy over and asked her if she'd like to move in. She was thrilled and moved in right away. Wendy called the college registrar to declare a major in art. Prof. Virginia came by to leave a juniper bonsai tree for Jonah in commemoration of their date. He already had one, but he kept it to decorate his future home. Jonah and Edwin, after no studying for the entire semester, both headed off to their final exam and were of course both expelled from college. Wendy is now the sole occupant of the Sharpe household.

The Broke Family in Pleasantview: Warning: Some Language + 3 Pictures )
Today I headed to Pleasantview to play the Broke family. I haven't played them a whole lot since I had to reinstall everything, and I know I neglect them terribly. Brandi now works in the law enforcement career as a Cadet. Dustin has his after school job in the criminal career as a Numbers Runner. Therefore, the family can occasionally afford something nice, finally! Beau is currently a child, and Brandi's third child was a son, whom she named Bob. Bob is currently a toddler.

On Monday morning Brandi spent some quality peek-a-boo time with Bob while Beau practiced his painting skills and Dustin smustle danced until it was time for school. It was Brandi's day off. She spent the morning productively by completing Bob's potty training. Dustin had the day off work also. Brandi put Bob down for a nap and practiced her speech in front of the mirror to gain a charisma point before falling in to bed exhausted. Beau's relatives heard about his good grades in school and sent him $100 as a reward. He went to bed exhausted after school, poor thing. Being a good student is hard work. Dustin was far too depressed to do his homework and the social bunny was hovering around him constantly. He took a cab downtown to buy himself one of life's little luxuries - a gameboy. He then headed back home with his purchase. Bob grew up well in to a child thanks to Brandi's wonderful mothering skills. Dustin invited his steady girlfriend, Angela Pleasant over for some romantic slow dancing out front, though his mind wasn't completely on the romance. 
When Brandi got up (and oh, goody, her sleeping pattern is all destroyed!) she went back to the mirror to gain two more charisma points. When Beau woke up it was time for his birthday as well, and he grew up well in to a teenage knowledge sim.
Beau spent the early hours of Tuesday morning cleaning the bathroom and gained a cleaning point for his trouble. Brandi was still in front of the mirror gaining yet another charisma point. Beau tackled his homework to continue his run of good grades. When Bob got up he spent some time smustling in the bedroom. Dustin managed to break the bathroom sink (he is made of fail!) and called a repairman to come fix it during working hours. Then it was off to work and school for all the Brokes. Dustin was offered a choice of instruments in music class and chose to learn the cello, but he was terrible at it and ended up breaking the school's cello - he had to pay for it too! He headed straight to work after school and Brandi headed straight to bed after work. Beau and Bob sat down to do their homework together - that's right, Bob, Beau is the older brother to be looking up to, not Dustin. Dustin was once more too depressed to tackle his growing pile of homework assignments. A townie acquaintance that came home from school with Dustin clogged the family's only toilet. Dustin once more called the repairman to come out the next morning. Later that night, Brandi re-broke the bathroom sink - I guess that repairman didn't do a very good job. She pulled another all-nighter and spent it in front of the mirror gaining another charisma point.
In the early hours of Wednesday morning Brandi gained yet another charisma point! When he got up, Bob called Mama Caliente to chat until it was time for school and work for all. It was Dustin's evening off work, and he managed to do Wednesday's homework but not the previous two days' homework, regardless of the fact that his job is in jeopardy if his bad grades continue. Brandi went straight to bed after work again. Beau called Sim State University to see if he was eligible for any scholarships - a teen for less than two days and already thinking about college - and he won the SimCity Scholar's Grant. Brandi was terribly proud. She pulled another all-nighter. There's no end in sight to her terrible sleeping pattern yet. I don't even remember what happened to put her in to it.
