Chapter Forty - Another one bites the dust

We're almost at an end of this round of updating. This will bring you right to where I am in game-play. Of course I still have a couple of secrets up my sleeve :D

"Hey is that pirate booty?"



Forrest decides to get some of his own back, after all Chardonnay did not try to intervene in her daughters nefarious schemes.

"Cool dad, a Simvac! What are you doing to Grammy?"

Yeah. We don't use the Simvac normally, and this is the first and last time it has been used in the Vulcan Household. It creeps us out it does. (Us = me and BabyBob, the jellybean living in my tummy.)

It is time for Ebony to grow up. We fear for her, she seems to have gotten her dad's nose, and we have trouble predicting what children are going to grow up like.

Apple uses the distraction of her sisters newly found teenhood to sneak off. Well in all honesty the two events were hours apart, and she was very nearly caught by her mother, but all in all the sneak-out was a success.

Elspeth makes me proud. Bless her little pixilated socks. She's the first Sim I've managed to get a full lifetime aspiration meter for. I guess it must be all those dates she keeps on wanting.

"Maybe I could push Forrest down here. It doesn't look that deep, so maybe he wouldn't die. But maybe he would!"

We had the Garden Club over for the very first time. Elspeth aced it with the help of Chardonnay and the Gardener of course. Elspeth is enthralled by her latest garden ornament.

"Wow! Where'd this big bag of cash come from? I don't remember painting anything lately."

Of course, just cos we gots the well, doesn't mean its functional.

Gina pops round to talk to the girls about joining Iata Pi, how hard it is to be pretty and popular *yawn* I didn't really listen all that much. The whole Greek House thing is a pretty foreign concept for me.

However Gina and Apple did get along like a house on fire. Thats what we like to see. And no I'm not forcing anything, both of them developed reactions to the same gender independantly. But it does make it nice and neat for me. I like it when things work out like that.

Yay! Count Forrest has also reached the lofty heights of Pretend Perma-Plat! Wow I'm on fire this generation. Of course, I will get him to take a couple of jobs and leave them now, I have realised we are behind with the Career rewards. Elspeth might have to grab another one as well. Not that they have much more time to go job hunting, old age is looming.

Heheheehehehehehehe. Sorry, this amused me, normally Forrest brings Paden home, I think they bond over undead experiences. What is also normal is for Forrest to come home at night. Now that he is a Game Designer he comes home during the day, and Paden runs off steaming :D

Ebony nabs a promotion to Law Secretary, and the Young Enterprenuers Scholarship. She's ready for Uni, and not all that scary looking after all.

"Huh? What is it with you People? Seriously, why must you die on the very same day your multiples have to choose turn-ons.... If I hadn't just extended my kitchen I swear I'd never come back to this place. Monkey s**t outfit.... *mutter mutter mutter*"

Hai Grim! In our defense we were expecting you to appear last night. What kept you?

"*cough* I have a new Hula girl, she used to be a gymnast. She's very flexible...."

Alright I don't want to know. Just Give Chardonnay her drinkies and take her to the big pirate ship in the sky!

"Until next time...."

Fitting last words, I think I'll steal them. Until next time!

Oh and yeah Sorry I missed the twins growning up, but you know it's a very busy time in the Vulcan household. You'll see more in the next update I promise!

Oh yeah, can't let all those skills go to the grave...Smart move on Forrest's part.

Yay for wishing wells! They come in handy for all sorts of stuff!

Ah so Forrest made it to the top! Congratulations! Hehe Paden.

Congrats on your own 'lil bundle bakin'- ASimWen
