Chapter Nineteen - It's that time again...

Yes that's right, it is that time again. The time for college. Wow. I love Uni, it's so much fun....yeah. We'll just get right on it then.

As you can see the twins didn't rack up as much dosh as Bryn and Paden did, but Brandi really really wants her plastical surgery machine, and I really couldn't put up with her whinging or the teen-aged angst so I packed the kiddies off to college.

Now that Chardonnay is out of the parental house she's really started to channel her inner pirate. The only reason she bought this outfit was because it had a corset.

Of course we were both much much more excited about finally being able to do 'things' with the exterminator Ian. He's a fortune sim, but we won't hold that against him if he manages to sire green-eyed babies.

"Ahoy me-ah. I see land-ah! So heave too before I kick you like the scabrous dogs you are."

I was going to say college had mellowed Chardonnay, however then my instant simlish translating software* kicked in, and I realized she puts Captain Bligh to shame.

*Instant Simlish Translating Software, aka 'ISTS', and 'My Imagination', is in fact only available in my head. It also works for a variety of other programs including 'Making boring relatives more interesting.' And '1001 reasons why you were far too busy to wash the dishes that are not related to playing The Sims 2'

"Wow who would have thought you'd actually be kinda pretty under that maxis hair and no make-up."

"Oh Hennessy. Tee hee"

Oh yes, both kids managed to get into the greek house, and I figured if I was going to have to play Genisis for the entire college session, I may as well make her over. Imagine my surprise when she cleaned up pretty. I didn't even know it was possible for that face template. You learn something new every day.

"My darlin' I've been lusting after you ever since I was a teen. Please say that you'll marry me and come live with my parents in the house that didn't really have roaches, so we called you anyways."

"Oh yes! Is that real?"

"Of course it's real, nothing but the best for you darlin. Of course it might have fallen off a truck at some stage on its journey from exotic South Africa....."

The tradition of long-winded and confused proposals continues. I was actually on the verge of flipping for the two, but Chardonnay is definately the more interesting of the two twins, and we have yet to get the platinum family grave stone, so she is the heir. Besides, Ian (the exterminator) is way hotter than Genisis. Oh and yeah, he's a fortune sim, so he'll be happy with the match.

I just included this screen cos they look so sweet and innocent and very very pleased with themselves. I haven't the heart to tell them that this bed has seen far more action than they could possibly imagine. Yup, it's Bryn's Bed 'o Lurve.

"So my sweet how does an endless supply of simoleons, and unending life sound to you? If you say you'll be my wife all this could be yours. And more!"

"Endless? As in, they haven't invented a number to count our riches? Oh yes yes yes you crazy fool!"

Genisis is also a fortune sim. And also very pleased to be joining the family.

More smooching in the upstairs bed room. This bed is considerably more innocent than the one next door however. The Iata Pi house is now proud to announce it has 3 bedrooms (2 doubles) and 2 bathrooms, and a dining room no-one ever uses cos they'd rather eat in the study.

"C'mon Smythe, Donny is absolutely gonna love you!"

Some suitors bring roses, and perhaps a DJ Booth or fountain, not our boy Ian, he seems to know the way to his princesses heart is through her need to have piratical accessories. Please note he has also given himself a more piratical look thanks to the wonders of modern television (and Mod the Sims 2)

Unfortunately we had to delete Smythe (or rather, we used the mighty Hammer of Doom in the build mode) because he'd always bug out trying to get outside. Thats okay though, Van Clef is still sitting at home awaiting Chardonnay's return.

Its a big scary day for our love-birds, thats right, the parents are over, the victim is over, and its time that they should meet. Of course if Bryn and Brandi were anything other than romance sims they might have actually cared. They were more interested in playing the piano and munching down on chef salad.

Nothing says 'family bonding' like a little kicky bag with your prospective father-in-law. The jeering of your soon-to-be-mother-in-law is just a little added bonus.

"Look, I don't know how many times I have to tell you people. Iata Pi is a one cheerleader household, and you aint it honey."

"But...I've got to raise school spirit."

"Don't give me that bollocks. You and I both know all you're looking for is an in with the family. And they are also a one cheerleader family. Now beat it before I split kick your gerbits back to Strangetown!"

Hold me? I'm scared. Normally Genisis is pretty mellow, she's a lazy sim, I know she has the constant slouch of the mentally deficient. However add another cheerleader to the mix and she suddenly gets all feisty and territorial. Thankfully, domesticated females do not feel the need to mark their territory with pee.

On that delightful note I'll conclude this chapter by saying.... aww crud, I ran outta words. I have a new monitor now, so bob knows what the screens will look like in a couple of chapters. The next one I know will be with pictures taken on the old 17' monitor (I have now got 22' of flatness.) I suggest taking a coffee break whilst I rustle up the words for the next chapter.

Yeah! She is the heir! And here comes the pest man! Too bad for you Genesis, you'll be happier living in a spare house anyway. :)

I was rooting for Chardonnay! She's all pretty and got her grandmother's spirit. Plus pirateness. And pirateness is always cool.
Seraphyem, know that if I ever die of laughter (came very close seeing Ian in Jack Sparrow hair), it will be your fault. *goes back to laughing fit*

Hahaha there is nothing like a pest control man dressed up like Jack Sparrow. LOLOL I am glad Chardonnay is the heiress. She is fulla spunk. Sorry for Genesis though, but I agree with Bubbs...she will be happy in the spare the high life that her lazy self will embrace.
