Third Time’s a Charm

3rd-times-charm-1So there I was… watching the world from map view…

When all of a sudden the camera jumped. Again. Third time today. And there was Elvira, right in the middle of it. And what’s that black stuff around her? Is that smoke?

Dropping in for a closer look I see something in the bistro courtyard is being thoroughly consumed by fire. Elvira is just off to the side letting loose with an evil cackle. Nothing is visible from inside the smoke except the flames. One question immediately comes to mind: Who is it this time?

Getting Caught Up

Sunset Valley in Autumn

Sunset Valley in Autumn

Ok. So it’s been awhile. In July I signed up for a course to help me pass the CompTIA A+ certification tests so I had to curtail my Sims 3 activity. It’s really hard to study when you’re playing computer games. Since I pre-ordered Seasons I knew I’d be back soon enough. I haven’t taken the exams yet so I probably shouldn’t be spending so much time playing games instead of studying, but I missed my sims. Maybe I’ll get back to studying before Christmas.

I actually didn’t quit playing the game until late July, leaving quite a bit that wasn’t posted here. I’ll try to get you caught up, but it’ll probably be in the form of messages sent to friends as events happened. That seems the easiest way to remember things. lol

All’s Quiet… For SV2E

Life in SV2E has been rather calm, almost quiet even. When I reported on KerryAnn’s pregnancy I forgot about one tiny little detail. Vlad’s fertility treatment. Joey now has two baby sisters. 🙂 And a brother on the way. Yes, just one this time. After four sets of twins for Mr. Schlick I decided it was time to remove that fertility menace. He may yet get neutered, but for now no snip. I can’t promise that will last, apparently he’s the only man in town who appreciates a female gigolo, and KerryAnn doesn’t need to keep having his babies. Add to that the fact that two of his teenage sons have managed to get girls pregnant, I think we have enough underage vampires for one community. Oh — and I almost forgot — between the birth of Celina and Michelle and KerryAnn’s latest pregnancy, Holly Alto also gave birth to a Vlad Schlick baby girl. Lucky for Holly she only had one, Gwendolyn.

Who’s Minding the Baby?

Has it been 10 days since my last report? Wow. I guess I’ve got some ground to cover. Sarah gave birth to Candace, Moe’s daughter (making her KerryAnn’s full sister). She looks positively green in her pink blankie. Vlad engaged in a little gigolo canoodling with KerryAnn (she’s working for her son now) and they have another child on the way. Joey is getting his first full brother or sister at approximately the same time that his own first born will be born. Yes, that’s right, Joey and Hannah are expecting, which prompted them to rush to the alter (this was not the work of StoryProgression). It remains to be seen if Hannah will be ok with his avocation. Given her career, though, she really isn’t in a position to complain about his activities — as long as he takes appropriate precautions. 🙂 The last noteworthy birth is that of Toby Hayes, the son of Hannibal Hayes (Hannah’s twin) and Ebony Huffman. Toby is already in those precious, precocious toddler days.

As SV2E Turns

Vlad and KerryAnn have tied the knot. KerryAnn and her daughter, Tiffany, have moved in with Vlad. Who is a guest in Sarah’s home, along with his son Joey. Oh yeah, Joey is KerryAnn’s son, too. How nice. For the first time since Joey was an infant the family is living under one roof. And for added flavor, there’s all the extended family: Grandma Sarah, and half-siblings Jason, Janie, Isaac, and Jacob. If I’m remembering this right, all the kids are half siblings to KerryAnn through Sarah, and to Joey through Vlad. So I guess that, by extension, makes Joey and KerryAnn brother and sister? lol Since I wasn’t invited to the wedding, I’ll be serving as the post-event wedding photographer at a later time. Knowing these two, it could be after the divorce. Or maybe I’ll put Sarah in the pics instead of KerryAnn. Her blonde hair looks better with Vlad…..
