Hey guys! I went to a convention! Yay! So if people want to see my con costumes or something… sure? They suck, but I love you guys for reading what I write and making me feel the warm fuzzies. *nod nod*
Also, I’ll be trying to keep on top of my simmies during the summer, but I’m not sure how much time I’ll have. I’m moving, I’m supposed to get a job, and my dad was diagnosed with cancer, which sucks. But um… how about we move on to the simmies now?

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.04.09 AM

We now know one of Suzanne’s traits, at least. In addition to the one we already knew which was the ‘Completely Useless Babysitter’ trait. : /

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.06.29 AM

Speaking of useless, guess who got arrested! πŸ˜€

Palladium: Speaking of useless, guess who forgot my name last time!

Okay, fiiiine. I won’t make fun of you. : /

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.08.24 AM

Laurel came back to play with the martial arts thing. : D I saw her recently in another Riverview file, and she looked so sad, and I was like, ‘oh honey don’t worry you marry into the best legacy ever and you kick ASS’.

Um… not to say everyone else’s legacies aren’t awesome. It’s just that the simmies in this one are MINE. 83 *squooshles all the Mendeleevs into a group hug*

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.09.54 AM

I do a ‘sim check,’ which had a form but not a name in my game until I read the Zale legacy, which is lovely. I caught Nervous smacking his wife around with a football. : /

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.10.35 AM

When Palladium gets out of prison, her body disappeared. Oh, and I just noticed she passed out, too. So there’s that. : /

Way to fail two times at once. So I reset her.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.11.52 AM

Palladium: Hey… whoever I’m talking to! How’s it going?

Yeah. I forgot. Sue me.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.13.01 AM

Palli taking care of the kids in this condition was pretty disturbing. I have a video, right here:

Don’t watch those other videos that come up at the end. They were for my Technology for Educators class and they suck. D8

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.13.26 AM

Indium: Yay! Food!

Bottle: *appears and slowly slides toward child*


Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.14.43 AM

Indium: Hey, Cadmium. Look. You can’t even walk, and I can LEVITATE.

Tin: *engrossed in green milk*

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.18.33 AM

Teleporting did not work to fix Palli, either. It wasn’t really a big deal, because I can’t control anyone to have them interact with her anyway, so I didn’t need to click on her, but, you know. Annoying. : /

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.19.28 AM


Rest in peace, Hans.

Hans: Nah, someone kissed me and turned me to a prince, so I’m off to marry a princess and get a kingdom of my own! πŸ˜€

Oh! Good luck then! *waves*

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.21.46 AM

:O Palladium came back when she went to train on the fighting dummy!

Palladium: I always knew that violence solved everything!

Indeed it does.* *sage nod*

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.23.06 AM

Did you get zapped again?

Yttrium: Maayyyybeeee?

I don’t know if I count this. I don’t know if I’ve even been counting this?

In other news, we’re training Indium in everything and not paying attention to Tin. : /

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.25.10 AM

It’s time to play ‘How Long Until Yttrium Showers’! Who wants to make a bid? Spin the wheel, draw a card… I’m not entirely sure how gameshows are supposed to work. : /

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.30.09 AM

Nervous: Your mother is a yeti. She was caught by the cops. She sucks.

Silver: Um, no? She just got a promotion.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.30.38 AM

Silver: Way to go, mom.

Nervous: I’m still ahead of you.

Palladium: I started later. And was on MATERNITY LEAVE. : /

No one likes Nervous, I think.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.32.47 AM

Aw yeah, working out to a kitty stereo!

Why did I take this picture?

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.35.31 AM

Hey, look! Yttrium showered! And correctly chose the better baby!

I’m not playing favorites. Nope. >_> <_<

And then I had to stop writing so I could figure out what traits were, which means, birthday.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.47.05 AM

Indium’ s new trait is vehicle enthusiast. Did I remember because I gave him cars on his shirt, or because I’m a bad bad simmer who picks favorites? You decide.

And he has, like, Danny Zuko hair because the car thing.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.47.17 AM

I think Cadmium’s new one is grumpy. Unless he had that one, but I don’t think he did. So his new trait is grumpy. He looks like the polar opposite of his brother.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.48.50 AM

Indium found his own bed that was done in his color because of course he did.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.55.50 AM

Meanwhile… er, not meanwhile, like the next day… Silver goes on an adventure on a boy with fairy wings and plantsim hair. His name is Not Important.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.56.16 AM

Indium has a friend too! He’s a vampire. I think Cadmium may have gone home with another child and I didn’t get a picture?

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.57.10 AM

He may have gone home with this family and then stayed outside. I don’t really remember.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.58.34 AM

Silver: My favorite color is lilac, which you can tell because it’s all over my clothes.

He’s got an interesting-ish face. Possible spouse material? Mebbe?

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 8.59.48 AM

And then it’s Silver’s birthday, but she’s at a friend’s house so I couldn’t get her cake or anything.

… wouldn’t you be shocked if your kid left for elementary school and came home a teenager that night?

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 9.00.19 AM

Yay, Silver! Her new trait is Stinky. Oh, wait, it’s… artistic? Genius? Bookworm? Brave? Er… taking screen caps of traits doesn’t help when you don’t remember which ones she had to begin with. But it’s one of those four.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 9.08.00 AM

Silver: Gramma, did you have to interrupt me while I’m getting rid of the pit stink for my teen picture?

Yttrium: I have to make sure I’m not the only one who stinks for days on end.

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 9.08.21 AM

Well, here she is. She is beautiful. And smelly.

Idiots and Flying Fish

Welcome back. Or.. um… I’m the one who’s been away, so welcome back me! I’ve been super busy with college and stuff. I have like three papers soon, due but one only needs one more sentence so there’s that! πŸ˜€

I apologize if I seem like I’m not paying attention, because I started loading pictures and then I heard ‘Do you wanna build a snowman’ so I had to stalk the people watching Frozen in the lounge.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.15.48 PM

What’s her name, uh… Palladium can… oh shit. Sorry, Elsa just frozed the hell out of the palace. Okay, where was I. Palladium can train people now! So there’s that.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.19.25 PM

And steal candy from babies. I almost wrote steal babies from candy. : 3

Silver: Mommy? I thought what we had was SPECIALLLLL! D8

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.20.21 PM

Silver: Okay, all is forgiven : 3

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.21.16 PM

Palladium: I should have known that lifting weight would trigger labor!

Yeah, you should have. But babies nao. : D

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.23.25 PM

It’s a girl and a boy! Just kidding, it’s a boy and a boy, but one likes pink because real men wear pink.

Pink was a boy’s color before, but then it switched.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.26.04 PM

Pink-loving baby is Indium, who is eccentric and friendly. And my favorite, but we’ll get to that later.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.26.10 PM

Cadmium likes blue, and is artistic and absent-minded. I should have introduced him first, but oh wells.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.34.06 PM

Silver is now… was she Brave before? Because she’s brave now and that’s the only thing I can remember?

Silver: Don’t let them in, don’t let them see,
this caption doesn’t even match what’s going on~!

But… Frozen. : (

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.34.36 PM

How do you have homework before school, anyway?

Silver: You should stop captioning until Let It Go is over, because you keep trying to fit that song in here.

Let the song rage on!
Snarky sims never bothered me anyway. B)

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.35.06 PM

I’m pretty sure that I used Silver’s one child interaction to play with the jack in the box because I never used it before?

I mean, it should be a really cute inter…

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.35.17 PM


Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.35.29 PM

Silver: DAFUQ!


Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.35.40 PM

And then the jack in the box made my dear, brave child cry. HAPPY TOYS SHOULD NOT MAKE BRAVE SIMS CRY.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.40.44 PM

Adorable reading to sleep which I accept as adorable because Silver and Palladium are able to sleep in the same bed.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.43.27 PM

He then stops when the twins are in the orange to admire a hedge.

Nervous: It is beautiful!


Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.45.16 PM

Palladium: Paintings are better than people…
Oh self, don’t you think that’s true???

I tried to redo the portrait, but it obviously didn’t turn out as well. First try it is, then.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.46.47 PM

Thanks, Palladium. Great way to welcome me back after my sort of hiatus.

Palladium: The toilet was clogged.

No it wasn’t, Palli. I saw. I sawwwww.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.49.00 PM

Silver’s bed is, like, officially sleeping next to Palladium at this point. It might be creepy when she gets older.

Palladium: We’re reading Do’s and Don’t’s of the Dons! πŸ˜€

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.52.01 PM

Free nanny service! Yay!

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.52.56 PM

Silver: Mom? It’s Saturday.

Palladium: And?

Silver: We’re supposed to go on an outing?

Palladium: … oh.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.55.23 PM

So we go to the first place that has like nothing to do, but when I try to move the outing it splits the family up. So Silver stays in the bar, reading…

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.55.39 PM

The twins are teleported back home…

Screw you, spell check. Teleported is a word.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.57.30 PM

Palladium sketched a picture of a random girl.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.57.51 PM

Imaginary Friend: I shouldn’t be here. I find this worrying.

Me too. She disappears immediately after.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.58.20 PM

Suzanne: Oh, the kids are starving? Maybe I should stop staring at a wall and go inside.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 2.59.20 PM

So Palladium goes in to fire her.

Suzanne: Oops, sorry. I gotta go.

Palladium: … this isn’t over.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.00.33 PM

We invite her over and she comes almost immediately.

Suzanne: Lol, I didn’t really need to do anything. I just needed to leave before you fired me.

Palladium: I am so not going to kill you. *forced smile*

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.01.50 PM

Suzanne: Now I really gotta go now. Kay bye!

I don’t know why, but now I feel the intense need to exact revenge on her. Somehow.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.03.03 PM

I find Nervous playing catch with a the random girl Palladium sketched. Not creepy at all.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.05.41 PM


He’s just… he’s my favorite so far. His face. His traits, which mean I can probably make him an inventor or something, which would be fun. I had to remind myself about heir votes when I saw him. And he has the purple hair. πŸ˜€

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.06.13 PM

And this one is Cadmium. I think he’s a male clone of his mother?

And now, I present to you, yelling at sims. The scene: Night has fallen. Two toddlers are hungry and dirty. Nervous and Palladium are at work. And… action.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.07.08 PM

Yttrium: I am hungry, and the kids are hungry too, but I’m gonna feed ME first. Because I’m WORTH it!


Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.07.30 PM

Yttrium: Ohey, it’s my birthday!


Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.08.00 PM

Yttrium: I’m one hot elder, yeah?


Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.08.30 PM

Silver: Wanna start a band? I mean… uh… read me to sleep?

SILVER YOU LOSE ALL THE BROWNIE POINTS. *frantically waiting and expecting social workers to come at any moment*

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.09.23 PM


Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.09.53 PM

Silver: Can I have a bedtime story now?

Yttrium: That seems more important than what I was going to do with this kid.

At this point, I am left to assume Silver is secretly evil and trying to get her siblings taken away. SILVER YOU DO REALIZE THAT YOU WILL BE TAKEN BY THE SOCIAL WORKER AS WELL, RIGHT?

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.10.28 PM


Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.11.01 PM

Yttrium: Can I eat yet? I’m hungry.

Imagine how the toddlers feel when they’ve been SCREAMING FOR HOURS.


Oh, um… language warning.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.11.14 PM

Good girl, Silver. You shall be rewarded by me refraining to hate you.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.11.31 PM

Yttrium: Food. πŸ˜€

I didn’t realize I still had her elder interaction until after all this. ;_;

But Palladium’s off work! GO GO GO.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.13.06 PM

Yttrium: I’m good at childcare! 8D

Yttrium you are, like, retroactively my least favorite heir/TH. I need to get some hair dye to cover up all the new grey.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.15.48 PM

And then the repo man comes.

We are having a banner day in the Mendeleev household, I swear.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.21.49 PM

And then I apparently don’t have any pictures after that. Just know that the repo guy took our aquarium, and I invited Suzanne and thought there was some rule about only moving in spouses so I aged up Suzanne, with the idea that I could marry her to Palladium and then maybe make her take care of the kids because YTTRIUM PROVED HERSELF INCOMPETENT.

Hey, what’s Palli looking at?

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.21.56 PM

Fish: ‘sup.

I… I… I can’t!

The fish will hereby be known as Hans.

Hans: I’m cool with that.

Hans is best Sims 3 fish ever and there is no denying that ever.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.27.16 PM

Yttrium has clothes now. I’m not forgiving her.

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 3.29.43 PM

And then Suzanne flirts with Nervous while his wife is right outside the window.

So he’s a bit of a fixer-upper
That’s a minor thing
His quote engagement is a flex arrangement
And by the way I don’t see no ring (’cause I fail as a simmer and don’t give them wedding rings)

*cough* Ahem.
