Nightlife, baby

Gah, I am so addicted to Nightlife. It's insane.

Most of my fun stuff is Luke and Lorelai...they're not engaged, but they've been on a few dates. My favorite bits: woohooing in Luke's truck outside the diner, and Luke suddenly having a desire to buy Lorelai coffee. He also wants to have a baby with her, and be married to her. I've never seen that before...want to get engaged, yes. But never skipping that and wanting to be married. It's so Luke!

Tonight I played the college set - Harry, Ron, Hermione and Rory. Ron and Hermione have dated, woohooed and want to get engaged, Harry and Rory the same. What's annyoing is that Harry is attracted to not only Rory, but Lorelai and Hermione. And frankly, Ron fancies Hermione and Rory. There are lots of little hearts floating around the dorm. LOL Harry and Ron play chess all the time, and Rory listens to her MP3s. It's all rather cute. Now they're seniors, so I'll let them get engaged. They'll be plenty happy. *g*

C was sick today, so I didn't get to work with her. : ( It was funny, M called at 9 to cancel, because C had woken up okay, but then went back to lie down. While M was on the phone, she came back down asking when I was coming, insisting she see me, so M said we'd try it. An hour later, she re-canceled. Bah. Then Scott's mom called to ask about babysitting, but it was during Josh's soccer time. Gah! This is what I get for earmarking the money I had anticipated making with these kids for perfume oils. I lose the money. LOL Oh, well. Hopefully C will be better tomorrow. I like seeing her.

I ordered my winter bed flannels last week: LL Bean Mix and Match. I got red plaid sheets, pink pillowcases and the red comforter. The comforter came's SO RED. I love red, it's so bright and cheery, but dude. This is a very vibrant red. My room is rather pastely. Antique white walls, soft blue and pink flowered border, pink rug, etc. This is going to do wild and crazy things to my room. I think that'll be good. Worst case scenario, I spend another $30 on a lighter shade duvet cover. But I think it's going to be very cozy and fun.

come on baby, light my fire

I have been on a total Sims renaissance lately.

Luke is now all ready for whenever he and Lorelai start dating. He's got a different best friend, is fairly up the job charts, and when I had them hug so he'd have a crush on her, they both fell in love.

The real fun, though, has been the Potter family. I'm not too concerned with canon in this family. James and Lily were happily raising toddler Harry, and I saw no reason to stop them. Then they wanted a new baby.

So, when Harry was still a toddler, Lily got pregnant again. Baby Jamie was born the day Harry turned into a child, actually. Jamie was a sweet, easy going boy. Harry loved to talk and play with him as Lily held him. They both looked like their parents, but in opposite ways...Harry looked like his dad with his mom's eyes, and Jamie looked like his mom with his dad's eyes. Jamie aged well, and Harry loved toddler!Jamie just as much.

Lily and James are very family oriented folks. All Lily wants to see in her future is three of her children graduating college. James wants to see six of his kids get married. Rina wept. But, well, they want a baby? We will work to get them a baby.

Lily lit the fireplace in their bedroom. Sometimes you need that atmosphere when you have your toddler banging on his xylophone outside your door. They both get into bed and smile at each other. Then they scream. Lily jumps out of bed, and James follows suit, running around to her side of the bed to protect her. In doing this, he locks them both in the narrow aisle surrounded by bed, wall and wall of fire. Finally, James manages to calm down long enough to extinguish the blaze. Lily runs to check on the boys, neither of whom noticed a thing. James moves to get back into bed, and starts screaming again. Before he was able to install a smoke detector or sprinkler, the fireplace has caught on fire again. Luckily Lily is now outside the room and able to call the fire department. They come rushing in, save the day, and Lily is so happy she tips them 100 simoleans.

After returning Jamie to his crib, Lily joins James in bed. Exhausted, yes. Dirty, to be sure. Determined to get pregnant, you bet your ass. This is all just a good story to pass on to the kid when they are married themselves.

Next morning, Lily wonders if she is pregnant. That afternoon, she stops making Jamie breakfast, dashes for the bathroom and throws up. Then goes right back to her activity.

That night, she throws up again.

The next morning, again. I tell Nydia, "Gee, I think that's a record. Hope it isn't twins."

Jamie ages into a kid, and Harry can't be bothered to care. He's a teen now, and much more concerned with his own birthday and the girl he brought home from private school.

Then comes the big day. Harry and another friend came home at 1. Lily was feeling tired, and decided to make a bathroom stop before heading to bed. But, oh! The pain! Harry is in the kitchen getting a snack. James is napping in the front room. Harry's friend is playing the bass right in front of her, but really doesn't care. Jamie bounds into the house with his report card and yet another friend. And baby Emily is born! Lily cuddles her, sticks her on the floor where Jamie almost tramples in his A+ cheer, and then baby Elizabeth is born.

Finally, James wakes up and runs over to meet his daughters while I think, "Fuck. There's no room for two more people in this house" and save and exit.

Off to build a new house, one with five bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (instead of two small bedrooms and one bathroom). It's really cute, y'all.

Discover that now James and Lily want 10 kids. Ha. Ha ha ha. Harry and his parents had huge problems keeping their paws off the twins while they slept. Which worked out for Elizabeth, since she cried whenever people put her down. Thanks, Liz. Real sweet. Jamie prefers to think the twins will go away soon.

The twins each have a room of their own. One is done in yellow and pink, the other in pink and blue. Emma is dressed in yellow to match her room, while Elizabeth is dressed in pink to match hers. Only way to keep them straight. They aged into toddlers and from the first moment, you knew they'd be trouble.

First off, Elizabeth refused to age. She blew out her candles first, and stayed a baby. James shrugged and went for Emma, who had no problems. She immediately went for the pile of water in the kitchen. Jamie, delighted, joined her. Lily got Elizabeth a new cake, and after two tries, Elizabeth grew up. Lily took one look at her kitchen and went upstairs to bed. Harry tried to clean it all up, but the kids kept making more of a mess. James finally managed to get them both upstairs, and Jamie went up to do his homework, and Harry was able to clean in peace.

I think I'm afraid to play the Potters again. LOL

dance of the new books

West Wing was actually good tonight. Not great, mind you, not even close to S1 or S2, but I enjoyed it and will be coming back next week even though the previews look like crap.

Not much to say about the election. Pretty much everyone has already weighed in, and we'll leave it at, I agree with you, you and you, but not you or you. ::nods:: Or, to sum it up a bit more, disappointed, angry, afraid, determined.

I focused on the pretty today. Made a new wallpaper, like the daffodil one I made a few weeks back. Only...snowier. <.g> And perhaps too busy? But I kinda like it.

Christmas letters 800x600 // 1024x768

Also played Sims last night. Lorelai, ironically enough, was playing golf with her boss. She decided to play to win, even though her boss the president really wanted to win, and he ended up promoting her to VP of the company. She went home, woo-hooed in celebration with Luke and is now pregnant. Luke is now a waiter. I don't think he's very happy. Perhaps he and Lorelai will both leave their jobs while the baby is growing up. They have quite a bundle saved up, and now Lorelai wants to sell some great book and art masterpieces.

I wonder if their house is a bit buggy - Rory does her homework every night and goes to school happy, but cannot rise above the C+ she entered school with. I know there's a problem with the dart board in the kitchen; they can't play anymore, just stand there sidewise, and I can't delete because it's "in use." I'll just have to block it.

Also fun is that Luke and Rina are always talking. In the way that Rina is always calling him on the phone. LOL Actually Lorelai and Rina really hit it off last night, too. What really amused me is that it didn't even occur to me that I was Rina and therefore I was practically stalking Luke, et al. <.g> Then I just started giggling.

Simmy pictures:

The Gilmore-Danes family. I cant find the shot, but now that they're married, he has his arms around her.

Some evening fun on the couch.

The happy day!

Luke napping while Rory reads next to him.

Lorelai's first day of pregnancy. She's yelling about how tired she is.

Yelling even more on day 2 about the tiredness. And she wasn't even that tired - barely in the yellow. <.g>

Lucy and Jem Blythe's wedding. See her bump? She was a few days pregnant with Gilbert, and ultimately was too tired to attend her own reception - she slept through the whole thing. And then decided she was too pregnant to go on the honeymoon, too, and went back to sleep. <.g>

Hit the bookstore this evening. Fuond the fourth book in the Thursday Next book series by Jasper Fforde. I am VERY excited. I also picked up an application to work there. The guy who waited on me was about my age, maybe a year or so older. He went to grab one from the older lady manager there. She promptly looked at me and said, "Are you of the age of majority?" I, eloquantly, said "Uh?" She clarified, "Are you old enough to work here?" "I'm 23!!" The guy's response? An immediate, "WHOA!!!" Yes, once again, Ipass for 16. Yay?

Also met with a librarian tonight to talk school and such. She was so nice! And after every other thing I said, she wuold repeat, "I can't believe how perfect you are for this job!" WHich is nice to hear after so many SLPs telling me I'll be a bad librarian. I'm gonna go down to her law library next week and poke around. And I think I'll ask her for a letter of rec - she seemed inclined to write one. So, yay.

So, my goals this coming week: do grad app, talk to letter writers, apply to bokstore job, find library job. Uh. Scary. Back to the pretty pictures.

comment spam/Sims 2

Is there a way to block certain people who post comments? Two days ago I got 500 comment spams from one person, and tonight I've gotten several hundred from another. I blocked their e-mails in OE, so I at least don't get the notifications anymore, but I want them off my website. ::frowns::

School continues apace. It's going to start getting busier, though - Tuesday I'm stuck there for 14 hours. I am NOT happy about this.

I adore my new Sims 2 game. I am so addicted. So far, I only have two familes - the Blythes (Anne, Gilbert, twins Rilla and Jem) and the Weasleys (Ron, Hermione, Ron's daughter Ginny, and their son Will). Details on their stories below. <.g>

I'm impatiently waiting for nsync and Britney skins to pop up so I can get them back in my game! I wanna see how the chips fall this time. <.g> (Last time being Chris/Justin, Joey/Lance, Joey/Rina and Lance/Britney. Poor JC got the shaft!)

computer fun

So, started with Chris and Justin. They were at 101 relationship points. Then they kissed too much and weren't happy. A little time apart and the relationship bounced back on it's own. JC came over, and while Chris read a cooking book, started hitting it off with Justin. He and J chatted for awhile, and then Justin flirted with him right next to Chris. Chris and JC were then at -100, and Chris queued up the option to slap JC after he finished reading. J started playing the piano, as JC cheered him on, and Chris decided to actually talk to JC. Turns out they have things in common, and are only at -75 now. I fully intend, however, to check out the "slap fight" option. I tried some teasing, blowing raspberries, but they actually mutually enjoyed that. Huh. <.g> Oh, and while Chris and Justin don't like for me to dictate affection, they will stand there for hours and kiss in different ways, which I found amusing.

Lance and Joey did less...Lance and me hit it off pretty well and are good friends now. Lance and Miggie are also getting friendlier. Joey loves to cook and play the piano. He and Lance love to be together.

All in all, fun to play. <.g> But I'm too tired to make this an equally fun report. LOL

April 19, 2002

Miggie and JC

Okay, all my characters are in now. <.g> Miggie and JC have yet to meet anyone but each other, but that will come in time. LOL Meanwhile, MAN, did the two of them hit it off. LOL I think they fell in love the fastest of all my sims so far. <.g> Here are a few shots.

I really love the outfit I found for shirt with a star, and washed out jeans.

JC sweet talking Miggie.

JC has fallen in love with Miggie after she flirts with him one more time. (By this point, Miggie is also in love with him.)

The big smooch.

Later, the Chasez's will get acquainted with their neighbors, hopefully. <.g> Here's looking forward to some Basez or Teerlove. LOL

Sim fun

Kate asked for a post to read before her class tomorrow, so here goes. LOL

I finally set up Lance and Joey. I adore their house...bright and cheerful. <.g> I start the game, check out their interests. Neither has any interest in romance at all. "Oh, no," I groan. So much for JoLa. Or me and Lance, since I have the same problem.

Joey hops in the hot tub, which I love...he stretches his legs out over the side and everything. Lance follows. I can't have them talk in there, only play, cuddle, wash, and kiss. Since they never met before or talked, I figured no, I'd let them just hang out. Lance says one thing about travel. Joey approves. They nod their heads, switch places....and Lance goes down on Joey. LOL I shrieked and ran into Kate's room, laughing. LOL Guess they don't need romance. <.g>

Later, I came for a visit. Lance and I chatted for awhile, and found several common interests. I went away after a little bit of flirting, (I greatly enjoyed the pictured growl, despite the photographic evidence) but we're nearly family friends already. Then, Chris came over. Joey greeted him, and Chris's first thing was to tease him. Joey cried. Then they talked and ended up getting along somewhat. Then Jennie came over. She and Joey talked for awhile, but her real conversation partner was the robot...they talked enthusiastically for hours, and he did tricks and juggled for her. <.g> She and Chris also hit it off fairly well. Then Justin came over, while Jennie and Chris chatted and Joey napped. He and Lance became close fairly quickly before Lance excused himself. Joey kicked out the other guests, and he and Lance spent time slowly making their moves. The next day, they were in love. Awwwwwww. LOL

I checked on mine and Jennie's Sims to see how our relationship with the boys were doing, and we started slow dancing in my bedroom. <.g> I thought that was pretty cute. LOL If you haven't caught on by now, I'm the redhead with long hair, she's the dark haired one in purple. <.g>

Now to get JC and Miggie into the game. LOL

April 15, 2002

Justin and Chris

Okay, so sometime this week turned into tonight. LOL I was showing Kate some Hot Date options, and took some snapshots as we went.

Justin and Chris kissing in the hot tub.

Chris washing Justin in the hot tub. (Justin had just finished washing Chris)

Chris cuddling Justin in the hot tub.

Chris going down on Justin in the hot tub. (Justin soon followed. And while there were no moans or cheering this time, there was spitting.)

Cuddling on the couch
cudding 2

Smooching on the couch
kiss 2

They were really making out here. Kate and I kept going, "Ooooh!" because they kept going.
kiss 3

It really looks here like Chris is the one always initiating, but let me come right out and say that's not always the case. <.g> I was just too lazy to toggle back and forth, for the most part. They finally kissed passionately, but I was so excited, I forgot to take a picture. They didn't like the fiery kiss, though. <.g>

So, there's some of the fun nslash stuff I've done so far. Maybe sometime this week I can add it Lance/Joey and JC/Miggie, and let them all rip. See what fun relationships come up out of it. : ) But for now...sleep! I did my assignments for tomorrow, and am really quite pleased.
