Chapter 7: The Thermidor Crisis

Is this my first post since I finished school?  I guess so.  Exams are pretty brutal, but done is done.  I’ve got pretty good grades.  But enough of that, this is what happened this week:

Day 43:

Alexander has only 1 day left before he becomes an elder, the twins have 1 day left before they become teens.

Roxanne got one of those fancy Steel Bladders installed that prevent her from ever needing the toilet.  So where does it all go now?  Who knows!  She also got promoted and is continuing her lifetime goal of Rock Star.  Naturally she performs 3 concerts in her third trimester.  It works well because Ezekiel was hosting an autograph session out front.

Roxanne's tour bus.

Alex invested in Goody’s Groceries.  Tristan started his next book “The Dog Who Was a Tank”.  I wonder if he should go into the Journalism career?

Day 44:

Whoops, Roxanne pushed herself too hard and went into labour after her fourth concert!  Alex freaked out as usual.

Rock star Roxanne gives birth before theatre!  Husband shows great concern for wife's well-being!

The next member of the legacy family is a bouncing baby girl Cascadia Wolfe.  Oh, so cute!

Are babies are born without hair?

Also our long-dead friend Naomi took this moment to rise from the grave and wake the twins.

Ghost grandmother.

Alexander took his last birthday and lost the lovely copper streaks in his hair.

Oh Alex!  No more beautiful red hair!

Also the twins aged up so now they’re ready to get in on the fun and hijinks.  I had to clean out their fridge because there were 3 entire cakes in the fridge, as well as 17 random pieces.  Can you imagine, so much fatty sugary goodness!

Day 45:

First day of highschool for the boys.  Tristan had to do some sort of school-to-work program at the Sahara Corporate Headquarters.  I don’t think he’d be a good businessman; the pay isn’t great, and that career reward is pretty lame.  (Hold business meetings.  WTH?)

There wasn’t enough room for Cascida Cascadia so I had to build her a separate room.  I’m still going to try and fix up the house later on.

Also from the Roaring Heights neighbourhood, I got the Fixer-Upper Car.

Holy smokes!  What a hunk of junk!

I’m still deliberating whether this is a cheaty item or not.  What do you think?  Other ppl I asked weren’t really sure one way or another.

Day 46:

In an ironic twist of fate, an insane highschool principal armed with several nutcrackers and nothing to lose takes all of the lobsters in the grocery store hostage.  Alex is tasked with bringing this mentally ill madman to justice for a whopping §2,000.

Alex slaps the lobster-wielding maniac with a rainbow trout.

Day 47:

Cascada’s Cascadia’s first birthday party!  She aged up well but she has brown hair.  Seriously, where did that come from?

Red + Yellow = Brown?

Red + Yellow = Brown?

Day 48:

Random Sims keep trying to fix Alex’s car, it’s like the Sprinklers all over again!  Virgil broke curfew to stay out late fishing, drinking milkshakes, and buying tomatoes.  What a delinquent!

Virgil is fishing.  Tristan is bathing.

Whoops, Virgil was working on his late homework and got a detention!  Tristan’s latest literary caper is worth §264.  Why is that guy watching him have a bath..?

Day 49:

I’ve had World Adventures installed for a while, so time for a family vacation!  When Sims go on vacation they enter this vortex in time and space where time stands still and nobody ages until they get home.  So they’re leaving on Day 49 and will return on a Saturday.  But that’s the next post!

Community death count: 26 or so

    I don’t see why the Fixer Upper Car would be a cheaty item – you have to do quite a bit of work to restore it, so sure you should have a nice car at the end. Not like it’s helping make their lives easier.

    Yay for little Cascadia! Again, cute name. And lols at the random grandparent genes.

      The car is actually really slow, I’d never use it for travelling. But if you sell it brand new, it goes for a really high price. Also it has a really high autonomy level for visitors; basically everyone tried to repair it above every other autonomous action. I guess I was thinking it might be cheaty because it’s so easy to leave it unattended and have a neighbour build the whole thing, then sell it for a pretty penny.
