Cha 2.5 Wait a Minute!

It's been a while since we last checked in with the Sandy LisonB legacy. Generation two heir, Esther, is married with a daughter, Aribeth.
Last Chapter:
1. The family stalked poor infant Aribeth
2. Aribeth grew into a toddler
3. Aribeth learned to walk, talk, use the potty and she learned a nursery rhyme
4. Neil showed his true colors by pretending a fire he started wasn't his fault

We ended last chapter with Esther flagging me down.
me: yes, Esther?

Esther: What's this!?
me: looks like a pregnancy bump to me.
Esther: I'm shocked! How did this happen!?
me: uh, go talk to your mother. Sim Goddess Tina is going to play conservative and teach abstinence and not education.

me: Aribeth, what ya doing?
Aribeth: dance...

me: oh sh*t! I forgot your birthday!

Aribeth: If I praise you, will you remember my next birthday?
me: I'll try.

Aribeth: Hey! I still have five fingers!

Time for bed.

Aribeth: so my number one objective on my first day of school, is to get in with the in-crowd.
Neil: :o

me: Esther, why did you stop taking that dish to the sink?

Baker's Hat: Hi, I entered your home uninvited to tell you that you can visit the cooking lot any time. Welcome to our exclusive club.
::head on desk::
*shake my fist at Maxis*

Esther: I'm a member of the cooking club
me: I heard. Congratulations - now will you continue on with your previous task?

Aribeth plays with her dolls

Aribeth: and then the mommy tells the daddy it's time to start a family.
Esther joins Sandy in the pool

I just wanted to see the pregnancy belly in the water

Getting out of the water, Sandy let me know that she was happy with her fitness level

Esther makes chili

me: ooooo, Esther, are you okay?
Esther: I cut my finger *whimper*

Now that Sandy feels good about her fitness level, she cuddles with Ian

me: HEY, that's more than cuddling!

Aribeth makes a muffin

Aribeth: mmmmm, this muffin smells so good. I am A GENIUS!

me: Sandy, is that water? or is it vodka in a water bottle?

Sandy: let's see. . . . limeade? check. Tequila? check. Triple sec? check. Kosher salt? check

Sandy: Blend and pour. . . . .

Sandy: . . . . and drink.


Aribeth: Hi ya, Sim Goddess Tina. I see you watching me.

Aribeth: wwhhhhEEEEEEEEEEEE!

wowe, she doesn't look too happy.

oh, wait, there's a sorta-smile.

Aren: HEY, Sim Goddess Tina, you're ready to end this chapter and you haven't made ONE mention of ME!

me: pardon me, Aren, but I thought you were shy and I just wanted to respect your privacy
Aren: OH forget it! I wash my hands of you.

me: is that right? I own you! I run your life! You do as I tell you!
Aren: I'm not listening! na na na na na na na!
me: hmmmmmmmmm....I have my ways, you know.

Well, this is where we bid farewell, for now. Thanks for reading. Next time we'll watch the birth of the 2nd child in this family and hope for a better nose (cross your fingers).

Cha 2.5 The Life and Times

Here we are, back to visit the Evan Irwin Legacy. Let's see where we are:
1. The twins grew into toddlers
2. Poor little Hope passed onto to the next realm
3. Faith challenge me, her Sim Goddess Tina, to a battle
4. Aeric shared his alien abduction story with Evan

Let's find out how the Evan Irwin family is doing:
Birthday Time!

Evan: tooooooot! Wooot wooot!

Kirsten: woooooot! Tooooooot!


The dance begins for Charity

Charity: BAM!
Chastity gets ready to jump into childhood.

Chastity: yeah, it's different, for sure.

Growing up is exhausting!
Charity stats:
sign: Gemini
Neat: 3
Outgoing: 10
Active: 9
Playful: 10
Nice: 1

Chastity stats:
sign: Gemini
Neat: 3
Outgoing: 6
Active: 7
Playful: 5
Nice: 5
Chastity: I rock! I'm the bestest! I love dreaming of me!

First day of school starts with a hearty breakfast.

The girls eat in silence

Charity: Hey, Sim Goddess Tina!
Chastity: Hi there, Sim Goddess Tina!
me: be good at school.

While the girls are off to school, the men of the house head out the fishing hole.

IanJr: what's this?

IanJr: oh my GAWSH! It's a huge fish!!!
Look, Sim Goddess Tina!!

me: Evan, how's the fishing?
Evan: shut it! Stupid boot!

IanJr: hey! I caught another large fish!
me: you're pretty good at this, IanJr.
Evan: Shut your pie hole or I'll knock you into another world!

The girls are back from their first day of school...
me: how'd you do, Charity?
Charity: let's see.....

Charity: I don't get it...I did all the work. What the duece!?

Chastity: see ya later, Bus Driver Dude.

Chastity: I'm's not fair. *whine*

The girls are low on the "fun" scale, so let's send them in to play SSX Tricky.
Charity: go to the right...the right! the RIGHT!
Chastity: YOU SUCK at this Charity!
Kirsten: wowsers, where'd that come from?

The game was creating all sorts of minus signs so I sent the girls out to the pool to raise the critical fun levels.




Chastity: kow-uh-BUNGA!!

Chastity: Marco!
Charity: Polo!
me: Chasity, reach out to the right. SHE'S RIGHT THERE!

After swimming comes pizza.
me: holy sh*t! Chastity! What a shnozzer!! Charity, how's your nose?

Chastity: yeah, do you have a 'schnozzer'?
me: ugh! Yes, you do. Guess this means college will bring plastic surgery, eh?

Time for homework help.
Faith: what do you mean you don't understand.
Charity: you're not explaining it right...the teacher said to do it different.

Kirsten: carry the 1 and that makes 9
Chastity: uh-huh...that's what I got, too.

Ever wonder what an insomniac does all night when he can't sleep?
I have. So I decided to follow Evan around at 2:00 in the a.m.
Here we find our subject getting ready to dive into the backyard pool

me: that dive gets a 9.5; the feet are a little too far apart for to earn a 10.

Next, our subjects ventures into the kitchen for a risky move:
juggeling water bottles.

me: including the bow, I'll give it an 8.0

Where will we follow Evan to now?
Evan: good morning, Stormy.

me: naturally...the dog.
Evan: you are such a good dog!

Oh, oh, oh! Kirsten is up, it must be near 7 a.m.

The watcher gets watched.

Well, thanks for reading, again! I hope you enjoy these installments.

We'll leave with the twins and their Mary Mack

Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back.

She asked her mother, mother, mother
For 50 cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump over the fence, fence, fence.

They jumped so high, high, high
They reached the sky, sky, sky
And they didn't come back, back, back
'Til the 4th of July, ly, ly!

See you next time!
