Chapter 37: Rumour Has It..

Hi all.  Happy Canaday Day! I have been super-duper exhausted lately.  My grandfather had a fall a few weeks ago and they put a pin in his hip, so I’ve been worried about him.  😦  Selling the house, we also went through a few weeks of hell that is daily tours and Open Houses before getting a decent offer of purchase.  Now all that’s left is renovating the new place, decluttering this place, & moving out.

Week 27 – Day 183: Sun

This Sunday was very hot and humid.  Serefina & Niobe are 104, Hyperion & Deo have 18 days left until they’re Elders, Iris has 1 days before she’s an Adult, and Europa has 1 days left till she’s a Toddler

The latest rumour is that Hyperion peed on himself in public.  Gross and untrue.  He lost 4 of his closest friends, including the very beautiful Kiki Ash.  He sued for slander & the rumours are gone!  (Unfortunately the friendships are still gone too.)  Also the last babysitter sucked and was fired, so the new one is named Aileen Mazza.

Like most famous people, Hyperion and Deo have taken up Yoga.

With Europa as the defacto Heir right now, and since they are engaged, Deo and Iris should really legitimize their relationship.  Since they both have the Insane trait, I was a little worried about the wedding.  But it seems to have gone off without a hitch*!
*Or is that with a hitch?

Since it’s a celebrity marriage, Iris is elevated to B-List Celebrity status (3).

Day 184: Mon

Editor’s note: The game tried to give Iris & Deo 56 work days off for their honeymoon.  Crickey, that’s like 12 Sim-weeks!  I changed it to 1 Sim-day instead.

I'm... not entirely sure what this is. But Deo and Iris appear in the space odyssey "Turtles Don't Have Pretty Faces".

After the music-gnome’s attack, Deo organizes all the sheet music at the bookstore and is rewarded with a free song called “Summer Hayrides”.  I’ll probably never use it because I hate losing rare books after a Sim reads it.

Serefina has a building disaster at City Hall.  There was some huge mutant plant apparently trying to devour everyone; just another normal day in Lucky Palms.

Iris’ Agent tells her to eat at the Blooming Cactus Bistro to earn some much-needed Celebs. Double-birthday time, and that hat with the flower is just adorable!

Day 185: Tues

Deo taking Europa out for a stroll.

One of Deo’s MLCs is to spend $10,000 redecorating the house.  Money’s not a problem, it’s just hard finding enough things to buy without slowing down my computer!

Hyperion practicing for the big show.

You remember Disease Prize?  That band Deo and Hyperion formed in Week 23 that never practices and performed once?  They’re asked to play a late night show at Waylon’s Haunt between 12pm to 3am.  That shouldn’t be too hard to manage.

Iris got promoted up to Key Grip (3).

Iris is asked to film the State of the City address for the mayor.  The mayor’s probably gotta talk about why the giant man-eating Viridiplantae was set on fire when it was just filing for a parking permit. Also I put up a brand new white-picket fence to keep the paparazzi out.  Now they’ll stop spreading untrue rumours about the Wolfes!

Serefina is backyard skinny-dipping / passively baby-sitting.  “I raised 3 kids already; I’m not raising their kids too!”

Day 186: Wed

Deo as Squadron Leader Les Reck.

Deo as Squadron Leader Les Reck.

Deo and Hyperion’s Mid-Life Crises are over; Deo did 2 wishes & Hyperion did 3 wishes.  I don’t think that’s enough, their speech bubble say they still feel unsatisfied with life. 😦 But isn’t dissatisfaction with one’s accomplishments an integral part of the human experience?

Europa playing with Glowsponge.

Whoops!  Disease Prize missed their gig; I mixed up 12pm noon and 12am midnight!! They were supposed to perform in the middle of the day!  Donnell Patel is pretty upset because his bar is even more boring than ever! Well at least Hyperion and Kiki got a chance to patch things up.

Deo is asked to fill in for Carlos Feathers*, the acting coach at the school.

Rumours spread that Niobe was arrested for grand theft syrup.  So it seems the new fence doesn’t help after all..

Day 187: Thurs

Deo got promoted to Superstar Actor (10)!!  That’s his LTW complete!  For his hard-work he received a Simmy Award, a professional actor trailer, and earned a Legacy point.  Iris also got promoted to Personal Assistant (4).

Hyperion’s Agent tells him to promote the Blooming Cactus Bistro to 3 different Sims so he can earn a few Celebs.  “Hopefully the restaurant will improve its mediocre food now!”  Also Deo’s asked if he can cameo in the pretentious play.

Reisa Millard, one of the snoopy snooping paparazzi, died on the home lot.  That’ll teach her a lesson about trying to make a living with fake news!

Day 188: Fri

Hyperion and Kiki make with the premarital woohoo.  I hope the tabloids don’t get a hold of this!

I really like Hyperion and Kiki as a couple.  Their celebrity supercouple name could be “Hyperiki” or “Kikerion”.

Deo is 'Col. Medic Ferguson' with Iris as 'Distraught Business Woman' in the war-drama "Landmine Lovers".

Poor Europa’s been neglected all day.  The babysitter Aileen spent most of the day in the hot-tub, so Europa’s exhausted and starving to death.  Have the babysitters always been this useless and I’ve never realized it?

Deo’s getting better at Yoga, Hyperion’s still working on the fundamentals.

Serefina had an earthquake emergency all across the city.  Now that she’s a centenarian, I wonder if she should retire or keep fighting natural disasters?

Day 189: Sat

Iris got around to filming her address for work.  Good on her!  Another rumour spreading about Niobe being arrested for a misdemeanor “reckless tickle-fight”.  She lost 8 friends, what the hell? Unfortunately, she lost her boyfriend too.

Zachery Ross, Niobe’s older boy-toy passed away.

To try and increase Hyperion’s prestige, Serefina & Deo invite all their celebrity friends to the park as a lure for the paparazzi.  To generate interest in soft news, Serefina also does her “pass out” routine.

“Oh boy, what a scoop!  Celebrity and girlfriend standing in park.  This will make front-page headlines!”

“Oh boy, what a scoop!  Celebrity and girlfriend standing in park.  This will make front-page headlines!”

Editor’s note: I’m pretty sure Hyperion’s Celebrity points counter is broken.  He got his first celebrity level in Week 22, the second in Week 24, the third in Week 25, & now it’s hardly moved at all since then.  Every time he finishes an Opp the counter seems to ignore the new points.  I even tried resetting him a few times but it didn’t help.

You know, I don’t think I mentioned Belladonna once this post. 😛

And yep, I think that’s it for the week.  Tune in next time to see Hyperion die!  (Oops, uh, Spoiler Alert!)

Community death count: 259 or so.

Legacy Score: 78. (Gen: 5 + LTW: 11 + Portraits: 14 + House: 20 + LTR: 28)

Theme song of the week:  “Paparazzi” by Lady Gaga

 

Wait, I don’t remember these last 2 pics..
