Round 3: The Jenkinses

Round 3: The Jenkinses

On the last visit in round 2 to the Jenkins residence, James installed a Pee Tree because the house was gettin' crowded with so many aunts and uncles that his step grandpa Craig was adopting and bringing into the house. Brandi (Ice Princess) grew up to teen, Moira went over the facts of life with Janie, Jordi was adopted by Craig, Jonah the alien grew up to child, and Craig was abducted a second time on the scope. Brandi has since left for Uni right along with James.

This round, just like with the
Bustos, we open the lot with someone standing in the corner heaving great sobs of dispair.

You got it right. Craig was so upset about being abducted a second time he laid newly adopted daughter Jordi on the floor to cry about it. OH HO! What's this I see? Cheesecake on the kitchen counter. Brandi whipped it out for her adoptive dad right before she left for Uni. Hmmm...me thinks I see a peice missing out of it. Who? Oh who could have eaten it? I think we know who ate it. Probably couldn't help himself.

In the meantime, adopted daughter Jordi grows up to toddler. She is a pretty one.


Hm. Does Craig's belly look extra large to you? I think he couldn't stay away from the cheesecake. He has twin aliens on the way. That will give him the number of kids he needs to have to fulfill his LTW to Marry Off Six Kids. Wow, up to six kids already and not even half way through his adult life.

Labor Day is here. This is something that Moira has seen before. She doesn't look real excited, does she. She has quit rolling the Fortune Sim wants and is just basically waiting to die. She has spent her life in Fellowship helping Craig raise his pack of kids.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Baby picture. Heh. We have all seen 'em but I never get tired of lookin' at 'em.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Jordi thinks havin' alien siblings is all right.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Several times during the week, one or both of the Busto boys came home on the bus with Jonah and Janie. I just can't quit lookin' at 'em. They get along really well with the Jenkins kids.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Jordi grows up to child. She is a happy child. Despite growing up in the bathroom.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Awwww...Jonah and Janie like each other a whole lot. I love these autonomous hug pictures.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

OK. I have realized that Janie is really not a very nice person. As soon as she grows up, she farts in Jonah's face. Whereas just that morning she was giving him hugs. Janie grew up Knowledge, with an LTW to Max 7 Skills. She is a mean Knowldege Sim. Like Ben Long. Jonah is so nice he is overlooking his adoptive sister's mean tendacies. He accepts her the way she is.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Time for Moira's Grim party, which, I might add, took place right in the middle of a headmaster visit. I reckon I wasn't paying attention to her lifebar. It was rough. BJ Ryan might
drink liquid suppers and admit the children into his private school, but a Grim Party really puts a damper on his attitude. Nobody got in. However, the money problems for the Jenkins family was over. Moira was 74 when she passed.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Lots-o-stuff goin' on during this headmaster visit.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

OK so Janie tries again to get into Private School, and calls Mr. Ryan for a return visit. Already she rolled the Private School want. Even though she is mean. During this visit, Jonah grows up. He rolled Knowledge like Janie, the sister he adores, and has the same LTW of Max 7 Skills. Coy cat.

But, *sigh* I guess Mr. Ryan was harboring memories of the Grim Party and nobody got in again. I have never had so much trouble with headmaster visits.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Time for the twins to grow up. Janie was doing pretty well keepin' her needs up high enough to energize so she can work on maxing those skills and was around to help the kids. Here she is with Jessup....


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And Judy. Gad, everytime I think of Judy or type it in, I think of Punch and Judy. Erm...where is SimPE? I think I see a name change for Jessup in the future. The two kids definetly do not look alike.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

With alla the excitement that has been goin' on, Craig hits the energizer quite often too. Alexandria Potts has come by to visit, and gets a load of watching Craig power up.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Yes, Craig did make it to work in the Military field. A couple of times.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Yay! Now he has advanced enough to get the obstacle course. Well, the Jenkins lot is so small it had to be placed in the front yard overlapping the sidewalk. People just walk around it. I like to keep it out and handy.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Meet Cara. I don't recall her last name. After Moira passed away, Craig The Family Sim went into depression. Rolled immediate wants to fall in love and get married. Forget about Moira. So I go to his address book, and this townie chick was the only one that he had a high enough relationship with to satisfy those two wants right away. It was sad to watch Craig struggling with his love life like that.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Cara is a Knowledge Sim with an LTW to become a Criminal Mastermind. It will happen. Also, Craig rolled the good old 10 kids want. Why, that is only 4 more. We end the lot with Cara pregnant, but not showing.


POINTS this round: Moira passes in plat = Platinum headstone. 3 new Sims = Jessup, Judy and Cara.

Round 3: The Bustos

Round 3: The Bustos

The last visit with the Bustos found Vampiress Contessa Brittany changed into a mortal since she had married Howie and gotten pregnant. It also found Howie turned into a vampire after she lovingly bit him. Brittany gave birth to a daughter, Bria.
Howie also bought his second business, The Corner Shop, and hired Andrea Hogan as the manager. Rufus fell in love with Shasta Norwood, and Hedwig left for Uni.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

This round opens with Brittany standing in the corner of the house heaving great sobs of dispair. Oh my! What in the world is wrong? Ah. Now I remember. Brittany's stud of a husband Howie
died on the Roma lot. Of course. She is sad he is gone. Poor Brittany.

OH let's see...alright. Rufus is a Knowledge Sim. You know how those knowledge types are. Once they roll "PRIVATE SCHOOL" they can't seem to think of anything else.

So Rufus gets busy and calls the headmaster. It is BJ Ryan. He is usually easy to please in a headmaster visit. It is all worked out. Rufus chats it up with the headmaster on the lawn whilst Brittany, who is so hugely pregnant, sleeps all afternoon. Rufus has no one to cook the headmaster meal. So he gets Marisa Bendett-Upton to do it who happens to be on the lot playing poker at the Busto home venue.

While Rufus is giving the headmaster a tour of the poor looking Busto house, Brittany gets up and bellies up to the supper table. Wow. Marisa fixed the liquid drink meal for the headmaster visit. I envision Rufus's bid for PRIVATE SCHOOL going right out the window. But, it didn't turn out so bad.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

As you can see, due to Rufus's superior communication skills (schmoozing) he got himself and Bria into private school. So, fixing the liquid supper will get you 17 points with BJ RYan. lol


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

OH, look at that. Shortly after the headmaster visit, Brittany goes into labor with Howie's kid. If you will remember, Brittany ate cheesecake on the
Roma lot meant for someone else. I knew twins were coming. But then, I was glad about it since Howie is dead.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

GAD!!! Twin boys. Folks, in all the years I have been playing Sims, I have never had twin boys. Always girl/boy, girl/girl. Thanks, Howie! The first one born is Bassel. Yeah. Bassel Busto. Brittany hands him off to Rufus, walks into the kitchen to have number two. (Hey, does that kid look a little strange to you? Look at that nose.)


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The second one is Bates Busto. I figgered those were great sounding names for a Busto.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Alexandria Pott's husband Adrian (green shirt) and a townie are in the house eating. They are takin' a break from gambling and got to witness the birth of the boys. See how they are talking about it? Brittany is happy her boys are accepted.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Let's see. Since Howie was gone, that meant that Brittany had to work the businesses, raise her three kids, and work her job in the slacker field. Gad, hard with Howie gone. That night she goes to The Corner Shop to open it for a few hours.
She calls Andrea in to work. Andrea didn't work more than a few minutes when she quit.

Well, Andrea had a thang for Howie. She really liked him, was attracted to him. I guess she didn't wanna work for his widow.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

So poor Pleasure Sim Brittany slaves at the cash register all night and empties the store. Let me say...Brittany was very unhappy about having to work so much. Her aspiration stayed border green/red the whole time.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Whoops! Time for the twins to grow up a little. WOW...look at Bassel. Ick. Hehehhe, he is a Busto all right. :) I'd know that look anywhere. I was right, he has Howie's nose. He's got one heckuva brow bone goin' there.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Looks like Bates got the same chin Bria inherited. Plus he got some nose, but his brow is ok. Funny shaped eyes. Brittany isn't too unhappy with her boy's looks. Maybe they remind her of their dad.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Bassel grown to child. He looks tough. All he needs as a tatoo on his arm.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Bates looks like he is saying "Doh!" all the time.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

By now, Brittany has gotten smart enough to hire help at the store. This guy had a silver in sales, so she hired him. Things really started looking up. Both of them managed to earn a bronze in cash register. The business worked up to level 7, and Brittany maxed out the wholesale perks. She worked the home venue up to a level 7 as well. That is a big jump from last round. It was only a level two.

Erm, do you notice what I notice in the picture? The vampire is Brittany Jayaplan, Esmond Kirkendall's fiancée. Look at the window. It is daylight. She was in there twice when the sun came up during this round. Makes me wonder what her needs are gonna be like next time I see her. I wonder if she will kick the bucket like Howie did.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Ah, what a nice big brother you are Rufus. He taught Bria how to study. Oh, I gave Bria a make over. She needed it.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Here she is conversing with her future husband, Carmen Patch...errr...Sullivan Profitt. Man, he is almost good looking compared to her. I wonder what their kids will look like??? Keep the fugly genes together, I always say.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Bria is happy she has met her future husband.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Here is the playground bully getting off the bus.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The round ends with Rufus beating it to Uni. He is glad to get out of the house.

POINTS this round: 2 New Sims - Bassel and Bates = 2 points

Round 3: The Corcorans


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Round 3 - The Corcorans

Last visit we found out that Corky, in a desperate measure to get a father for Chardé, married Llama Suit Guy Holden Todd. He is a Fortune Sim. He has no clue that all the kids Corky has been popping out aren't his. They even look like him, sort of. Blonde hair and all. At the end of round 2, Corky had another daughter, Chyla. Her daddy is the same as Chardé's, that being one Romance Sim Bob Profitt. Oh what a web we weave!


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

OK, let us begin. As soon as I opened the house everyone seemed to need to use the bathroom. So everyone congregated in that tiny room. Corky was showing a want to kiss Holden, and being I figured she could use the aspiration points, why not. Well, Chardé bursts into tears. I realize it is because her mother is kissing someone who is not her dad.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Well, Holden might as well be the girls' dad. He teaches them chess.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

He helps them with their homework.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

They play games together.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And he assists in their personal care. Yeah, he is their dad.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Holden is consciencious about keeping in shape. He works out with Corky almost every day.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

He keeps up on current events by reading the newspaper so he can make sure Chardé and Chyla know what is going on in the world.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Oh my and what the repairman he is. He has saved the family all sorts of money by fixing things himself.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Why, he adores Corky so much he even employed a maid to keep the house clean so Corky could take it easy.


Clickable Thumbnails


If Holden is so great, and is treating Corky and the girls so well, why is this going on? Well, who knows. It is some sort of Sims Addiction. *but the question is whose addiction*. Hehe. Ok. Now that I have spent several lines of text and a few minutes of my time making Holden look good, and Corky and Bob looking bad, let us turn our attentions toward Bob. What kind of dad is he? Keep in mind I have no control over him when he comes over to service Corky.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Ah. Chyla has had a birthday and is quietly playing with the social rabbit head. Bob autonomously sat down to play with his daughter. They kept at it so long now they are very good friends.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

When she was still a baby, he would pick her up and cuddle her to no end. Here he looks surprised to see his own eyes.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Bob and Corky have even had lengthy conversations about having grandchildren together. After all, that is Corky's life ambition, her LTW. To have 6 granchildren.


Clickable Thumbnails


'Course, even though he is Corky's squeeze-on-the-side, Bob does have his faults. He has a gnome fetish. He can't keep his hands off the little plaster sculpture Corky has in the front yard. Being the great and patient man he is, Holden brought it home. Corky's Main Squeeze.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Well I guess you saw this coming. Corky is pregnant with she and Bob's third child. Will it be another girl?


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Chardé Corcoran
Aspiration - Pleasure
LTW - To Become A Professional Party Guest
Zodiac - Pisces

Oh look. Chardé had a birthday. Her personality fits a Pleasure Sim. Don't think she will reroll in Uni.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Chyla had a birthday as well. She is very pretty.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And the third birthday. Meet Charissa, Bob and Corky's third daughter. And incidentally, Susan Profitt's sixth grandchild. Her LTW was just fulfilled. Awww..look at Holden. He was holding a want for a baby in this one did not fulfill it. He looks so hurt. Do you think he knows?


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And this is where we leave the Corcorans. Oh. Holden and Corky shut down their home business so they could get their started on their careers. Corky has yet to get to the top of her first career. So being a Family Sim, she joined the Military. She is in the Elite Forces. Holden quit his job as a Hall of Famer, and is a Con Artist in the Criminal field.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Oh this picture here. I sent Chardé downtown to get a cell phone and meet some other teens, and the Ex-Matchamaker came onto the lot. If you will remember, she was
bitten by a vampire. Now she just acts like a regular townie. She lost her matchmaker status.


POINTS this round - 1 new Sim, Charissa = 1 pt. Susan Profitt - Elder LTW fulfilled .
