Chapter Thirty Five - Tickle me Emo

So it's only taken me about 3 months to write 2 chapters. I'm quite proud really. If only I knew my results so far already. Ah well, back to the show I call Vulcan.

Of course, the finely tuned nose of Mr Penguin could sense that the children had been fishing.

Of course we don't store our fresh fish on the carpet, we just figured that Mr Penguin should be rewarded for his astute deductions. Just look at those beady little eyes alight with joy!

Who the bleeding heck are you?

"I'm Elspeth. The heir?"

What did you do? Where is the clueless make up?"

"Eh, I'm over that look, and Forrest recommended his stylist. He said if I didn't change my look for something he could be seen out with he wouldn't marry me."

Ah. Yeah, well. Yeah. I got owned.

Elspeth and Marcas head off to the dance studio. Elspeth successfully demonstrates that her new look is indeed a people magnet. Even the DJ seems impressed.

"The DJ is a moron."

Shush Marcas.

"I'm just as interesting as she is. I don't need a ton of eye make-up."

No you have that dashing earring.

"Darn tooting."

I am bored with the warren of rooms that the Iata Pi household has become, so I sent the children out so I could do some drastic remodelling. We're going from dinky Spanish inspired to open-plan modern. Should be interesting.

Much like fish, snowmen seem to be penguin magnets. Except Mhairi's. Hers is just skeery. But I do think the flame wreathed hat is a nice touch.

Mhairi isn't all mean and grumpy. Here she is helping Amar relax with a soothing romantic massage in the new gym. Which despite my spending a zillion simoleons on decorative objects makes the children cry.

Mhairi graduated Summa cum Laude, with a degree in something. Um. Oh gosh! Literature

Amar followed shortly after with a degree in Political Science. He still seems rather attached to his llama hat.

After a move back to Legacy Bay and a surprise lottery win...yeah. Lotto. The two happy lovebirds have a quick simple ceremony and become Mr and Mrs Bransfield. Now I can happily ignore them and get back to making babies in the main household.

"I don't know what you think you are doing, but if you want me to be your placeholder Vulcan you've got to think harder."

Drama in the bathroom. Oh noes! This is Gina Day, the cheerleading placeholder of the Iata Pi household.

The cow continues to be a HUGE pain in the bottom. See what she did to the date? Now how am I going to get Elspeth to the energizer. This is the first time I've ever seen the date box that color.

Time for some fun in the sun. The kids settle in for Elspeths final semester. With a little help from Jerome, who is overjoyed that the weather is heating up again.

Um? Nice clothes there Elspeth.

"Yeah. Like I have a choice what I grow up into."

Yes thats right! Elspeth is now all grown-up, with a degree in Philosophy! Time to make some babies Els!

As you can see, Gina is a finely honed athlete as well as a paragon of Etiquette. Yeah. To the Gym with you young lady!

Ah, thats much better. And you look good too.

If you ever wondered what the professors are doing when they aren't constantly bugging your sims, this little tableau unfolded before my very own eyes. I'm not entirely sure what happened either...And I was watching it live. Apparently Professor Cherry Wade is a very friendly lady.

Finally the baby graduates, and discovers his inner Goopy. Nice Marcas, very nice. But this means that Chardonnay and Ian have achieved thier lifetime wants, which doesn't really mean anything now that I have installed Freetime.

And in conclusion, this lovely night-time ceremony joining Marcas to his Naenae. Yeah, we don't exactly remember when Naenae got bitten, there were so many instances of biting during the childrens time at the Iata Pi house, but rejoice, shortly after they were wed, Marcas gave her some medicine, and she is all better now.

And here we will leave the Ever Expanding Vulcans. We will soon be entereing the brave new world of generation 5! Just as soon as night falls in the main house and we can invite Count Forrest over.

I managed to finagle my way back up to okay, although Elspeth still fumes about the incident.
