I sure hope some of my issues are fixed. Let’s find out.
Previously, Boo glitched and started acting weird. White Ice was born, but had not made it to toddler yet. UM is a grumpy teen. Viridian is just trying to survive at this point.
Snuggles: I think we should talk your mom into making me real. It’s too hot to be wearing this doll skin.
UM: I’ll see what I can do. No promises though.
UM: She said yes, but that I would have to earn it.
Ultramarine starts doing random stuff around the house. Mostly it’s keeping the horse happy. Otherwise, she just starts fights with Grape. They are close to becoming enemies.
While Viridian works on his block skilling, White Ice is preparing for his birthday.
Oh look. It’s another Boo clone. *le sigh*
Grape immediately sets about potty training. Viridian is just about ready to stop with the blocks.
He was able to get in some joyriding time too!
Snuggles: Haven’t you done enough yet.
UM: Apparently not.
Snuggles: Let’s go do something fun for a while. You’re dumb mom can take care of her neglected nag.
Boo: You won’t ever betray me, would you Violet?
Violet: *Neigh* (translation: Give me carrots and we’ll be fine. Ignore me and you will pay!).
I stopped playing here due to a problem with Boo and Violet. They turn black when they are outside…like they are cast in shadow.
—Four days later—
I never investigated the weird shadowing properly, but I did just install Windows 7 64-bit and started running 8gb RAM. I decided to give these guys a first try (after a testing file). So far so good. UM is still trying to earn her potion.
UM: I got the potion, but now we need to become better friends.
I hate to say it, but this is her happy face. It depresses me. She always has her head tilted downward too. She just seems so dejected. She also never got a 4th trait. She is Grumpy, Family-Oriented and Brave. She has 9,500 points, but there is no option for her to change her traits. Only her wish and favorites.
Anyway, they had a pillow fight to end all pillow fights. Lots of giggles…from Snuggles.
UM: Here you go. Drink up.
I swear I hear UM say, ”Ho Hum” in my head whenever I see her. She reminds me of Eeyore and that’s the voice she speaks to me in, well the female version of it anyway.
He is probably one of the cutest IF’s I have ever had in game.
I made one cosmetic change and that was to raise his lower jaw so that his mouth could actually close. Otherwise, he got new hair and goatee. Please note that UM still hasn’t acknowledged his existence.
Until I made her flirt with him anyway. Snuggles is an Eco-friendly and unlucky bookworm who tends to steal stuff.
White Ice, oddly enough, gets his attention from Snuggles. All he needs is his peg skill and he can have cake.
But first he needs a change, dinner and a bedtime.
Viridian was annoying the heck out of me doing that stupid presiding over a royal court. He did that every second of the day after finishing his joyride.
At the same time, super late on Sunday, UM finally decided to do her homework.
At the same time as that, Boo closes in on X daddy.
Olive watches and takes notes on how Boo’s irresistible greet suckers Oscar Arellano. To the left is Quicksand’s dad, Valentino Splash-Illusion. He married Rosewood and that is their daughter, Rosacea hiding her head from the camera.
Olive: OMG! Thanks for the autograph, Ex-step mom! I can’t wait to tell everyone all about it!
Boo: You don’t really need to do that. I think I’m related to everyone in town now.
Oscar was invited back to the house and got busy on the X baby. Unfortunately, I forgot that the downstairs shower was busted. I caught them heading to the time machine for their TFB.
I cancelled that and had them try out the photo booth.
We must not let the paparazzi get a hold of this evidence.
Grape and Boo are divorced. I just remembered this while writing it up. BAH! *Makes note not to count him as a child born at home while married* I have to get them back married. They are currently enemies. I think that’s what this pregnancy will be about.
X and Y are just going to be random townies.
After the deed is done, Boo quickly knocks their relationship back down to friend and kicks him out.
Then she went and fixed the downstairs shower while Grape mops and contemplates how best to get his hand (and swimmers) on Vivienne, Oscar’s fiancé.
I finally remembered that Grape has been a RI of Jelly Bean for the better part of her life (can we say ewww?)
OMG EA..really? That’s what you dress the poor thing in? Yikes! Anyway, Jelly Bean and her wife (lady to the far left) just had a little boy named Gobstopper. Grape was tasked with being just friends with JB.
Grapes twins, Olive and Oleander were off to the side watching and gossiping. Aren’t they adorable in their matching career outfits?
This is what I panned back too. I was not happy.
Especially with a newly pregnant Nutmeg watching and new mom Rosewood. Oh and oops to the walls down pic LOL Public bathroom is uber small.
He finally was able to be just friends with her, but her wife was on the swings D:
Ahem. After a quickie divorce, Capirinha made fun of her, mocked her and slapped her.
I finally let her have a makeover. I tried to give one to JB, but she was in her career outfit. Luckily, it reverted to that when I X’d it out.
We all remember Bay Leaf, the ex-wife to Richie and mother to one of Grape’s kid. She is now listed as UM’s niece. She also has a new husband and a baby on the way. UM was there after school for some reason.
That night, White Ice had his birthday.
Everyone is in attendance except Boo. She was at work.
WI turned out okay. He has a turned down mouth like UM.
Viridian (another mouth down person): I thought you were a brother? I could have sworn it was a he.
WI: Boys can have long hair too, idjit. Now go eat cake or go away.
(real conversation between me and Stink, my 8 yr old. Well, minus the idjit and cake part )
Snuggles: You can be a rockstar with that awesome hair!
WI: Nah, I want a career in science.
Viridian: I totally made him mad at me.
UM: That’s okay, I do it all the time. It’s an art.
Boo: I’m pregnant:
Grape: What else is new, tramp?
Boo: Rub my belly?
Grape: *Goes to rub belly*
Boo: What the heck do you think you’re doing? Stay away from my baby!
She did this THREE times. Ugh!!!
Grape: Quit being a sissy. You wanted to pillow fight if you remember.
Boo: But you hit too hard.
Grape: I hate you!
Grape was sent off to Vivienne Vasquez’s house. After some chatting, flirting and some kisses, we hear a lullaby.
She is really pretty for a townie.
It was easy to sway her with Grape’s attention. She didn’t even notice that Oscar was on hand watching.
Her son and Oscar were both not happy about this kiss.
Later at home, it was just before Viridian’s teen birthday. Grape tried to flirt with Boo.
Boo: I don’t even think so, jerk.
Grape was going for the boob I think.
Boo: Move that hand one more inch if you want to lose it.
Grape: Lalala! I can’t hear you!
Grape made the huge mistake of trying to take on Ultramarine next. She hates Grape almost as much as Boo does.
UM: Don’t even dare come up to me and talk bad about the mom I hate!
Grape: My name is Ultramarine. I have no one in the house that likes me. I made the honor roll in two days. I’m just an unloved smartypants!
UM: I happen to have several friends and a potential boyfriend! *slap slap slap*
UM: I declare you ENEMY! Get out of my room! I have homework to do!
The boys were downstairs doing homework out of the blast zone. Viridian got honor roll on his last day of childhood.
His smile really creeps me out.
Eek unedited pic! Alert! I think it was to save you the visual of Gigantor over there. But I wanted to show you that everyone actually showed up for the cake for once.
Viridian: Mom, isn’t it about time you throw that garbage out?
White Ice: Totally! There’s a can at the end of the driveway with his name on it.
Oh Golly, Viridian. Don’t ever smile again. It’s creepy!!
Viridian was found playing the piano to an audience of two.
Boo was in the next room playing pool when the pain struck, and struck her hard.
The sad thing is that the only X color I found was Xanadu. She has a wish locked in for a girl, but Xanadu is a boy.
Oscar did show up, but Boo was halfway home before he was out of the hospital.
Stay tuned for the Y daddy and subsequent baby. Will Boo ever get Grape to remarry her? Will this challenge be a failure? Well, I know about as much as you at this point!
