I actually made it home before the snowstorm, yayyyy! Which means I don’t have 3 days straight of keeping my lonesome self occupied, so no 200 pic play sessions, but I do have some Mendeleev pics backlogged so I’m gonna try and catch up a bit. Currently, I’ve got to having the first of Yttrium’s kids be a toddler, and the child is special. 😉
We open on the family all going to graduation. Probably would have been better if graduation was after school ended and attendance was optional, at least for the family. : / Because a day in sims is long compared to a day in real life. I mean a day is like 1/3 of a baby’s babyhood. But that’s just me rambling.
I also wonder why they’re taking the taxi and not the nice motive mobile I had Krypton get, with the intention of letting my simmies survive graduation and also go on family outings without all of them running home immediately because they’re hungry or need to pee or something.
Ohey a protest.
Protestors: Police should use their psychic powers to catch burglars, not teens!
I agree. Off topic, I have another save where I’ve got the blonde doll-loving sim up there living with her love interest and HIS love interest, and both the women are pregnant but neither of them have figured out that he’s cheating. It’s pretty wonderful.
Congratulations Zirconium! Her ‘Most Likely to’ is pretty accurate, seeing as she’s got, like, 9 points of athletic right now. : /
Yttrium promptly steals the show by being valedictorian. Her ‘Most Likely to’ is also accurate, since she’s in an ISBI and alcohol is flammable. : /
Squish squish squish.
I feel like I do when I have an angler sim and I take the same picture a billion times. At least with painters the paintings look different. : P
Yttrium’s bedroom is in the basement with the nectar so that we can expand upstairs once the other kids moved out. I was kind of planning on a larger renovation, but then we spent all our money on alcohol. #TheStruggleIsReal
I’m not even entirely sure what that means but it’s a bandwagon so I’m jumping on.
Just looking through the family and found this. Honey, your dad is your only friend. : /
Creepy, sad, or both? You decide.
Molybdenum gossips with… someone. It’s been a while since I took these pictures and I didn’t take notes. : /
I don’t think I’ve seen a sim do this when they were examining the sky rather than watching the neighbors.
Niobium: That star thing was coming right at me! … I’m sure it’s not important.
Zirconium: Aw yeah. Looking good in my graduation robes! Practically valedictorian!
You had to come down to Yttrium’s room when she’s sleeping because…?
In other news, Laurel got singed at the chemistry table and she hasn’t taken a shower yet.
Laurel: Read any good books lately?
Niobium: You smell like burnt flesh.
Laurel: If you started a garden, it might help with the nectar making. Since you’d have your own fruit.
We did start a garden, but I’m not sure if I have any pictures.
Thank you Zirconium. I’m SO glad I decided to let you stay a bit.
Laurel: So, I was thinking of starting a band…
Zirconium: Dammit mom, take a shower.
And then Krypton aged up!
He’s an adorable elder, but I apparently didn’t take a picture. : /
Krypton: I’m going to go to outer space.
You dream big, Krypton. Shoot for the moon. If you miss, you’ll die horribly lost among the stars. Or burn up in the atmosphere.
But, um… they make a plaque to remember you by?
No, she still hasn’t showered.
I’m gonna go ahead and say that was a pranked sink, since I think I’d remember if my TH peed herself. Or, at the very least, I would have gotten a better picture.
Then, while Yttrium is RIGHT THERE, talking to Nervous Subject, Molybdenum comes over and pranks the sink again. I’m ninety percent sure he was the one who did it the first time, too.
Yttrium: Dammit, Molybdenum! I had to end my phone call with Nervous because you were stupid enough to prank the sink while I’m STANDING NEXT TO IT?
The sink was set off once more by Krypton (I think) and Molybdenum went right back to set it up again.
Molybdenum: I got a time out.
If you tried to pull the same prank right in front of an adult on TWO SEPARATE OCCASIONS, you deserve it.
Molybdenum: I’m not speaking to you.
Trufax, I was calling him Niobium this entire time. I’d wanted Molybdenum to be a girl so I could call her Mo, but the first of the twins was a boy. So sometimes I mix up the names.
Now that Krypton’s an elder (I need a better picture of him : /) he has another interaction I can use, so I chose upgrading the nectar machine.
Unfortunately, he finished it at 88%. So no upgraded nectar unless I can get Yttrium up to a decent handiness.
Niobium: So, when are you getting knocked up?
WHAT IS IT WITH THIS FAMILY AND SEEDS?
They actually talk about seeds at a pretty average rate, but after Ellie and Zhan just talking about gardens constantly, I suppose I’m a bit sensitive about it.
Molybdenum went and did something else. I don’t even know what.
Molybdenum: Come ONN!
Yes, Mo. Paint your troubles away.
