No Turkey for You!

This was originally meant to be a Thanksgiving post, since I was playing yesterday and realized, hey, Thanksgiving is tomorrow, but I changed my mind for… reasons. This is the story of why the Mendeleevs did NOT get a Thanksgiving party.

But first, here’s a picture of our new fridge, because everyone was complaining they couldn’t get to the one we had again. The lighting fixture makes the fridge see-through, but only part of it. I found that interesting.

Here is Iodine in the new pajamas I gave him, helping out with one of the babies. Hell if I can tell which one. I was going to take a picture of his face with his new hair and all, but I got distracted…

Turns out it wasn’t the pregnancy or the death that made the opportunity glitch last time, but the opportunity itself. So ignore the picture of Antimony completing it, and of Iodine taking care of the baby. Those didn’t happen.

Nooo, Bob! Where did you go?

Evil Spirit: I ate him! Mwahahaha!


Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.15.30 AM

Instead of completing the opportunity, I sent Antimony to buy some books, because I realized that I could put out the new post on Thanksgiving, and IF HER COOKING SKILL WAS LEVEL NINE WE COULD HAVE TURKEY!!!

Then we had a sim check.

One’s working out…

One’s painting…

And, of course, one is drinking.

I didn’t bother redoing Iodine’s makeover. His makeover self is saved in my launcher, though.

And Xenon is playing shuffleboard.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.17.30 AM

Scratch that, he’s impaling himself on the shuffleboard table and having a birthday.

He went to sleep after, so I didn’t snap a picture and then I… forgot… but he got flirty as a final trait and dyed his hair black.

The next day, while I have Antimony studying, it’s time for graduation… and two of the three babies get taken. I’m pretty sure it was Caesium and Barium who were taken to graduation… and they were already in the yellow when the family got in the taxi.

Please take care of the babies, guys. D8

Good job, Iodine.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.29.18 AM

Not valedictorian but… good job, still.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.29.37 AM


Tellurium is graduating too. Huh.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.29.54 AM

Thank you for taking care of the baby, Tellurium. I kind of regret kicking you out early now. She’s still upset, but she’s just tired and there’s not much he can do for her on the city hall lot.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.30.51 AM

Yes, the baby is crying.


Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.31.51 AM

Even random strangers are paying more attention to the babies than the people who BROUGHT THEM HERE and LEFT THEM ON THE GROUND in the first place!

And then I got the pop-up saying that the babies couldn’t be left on the lot and should we stay there or call a babysitter.


Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.32.34 AM

So Antimony went to go pick up the babies and take them home, although she could take only one baby at a time. : /

Antimony: Why are my children on the floor?

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.33.04 AM

She’s not very happy how her family members were treating her babies.

Antimony: Obviously not.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.34.00 AM

Iodine brings the Caesium back home… but I don’t forgive him for bringing her in the first place.

This was when I decided that we would NOT be celebrating Thanksgiving in the Mendeleev family. I was NOT going to make Antimony work her butt off making a turkey for the people who dropped her babies off on the bricks while they went into city hall.

This… is a huge house.

And it belongs to Tellurium. He’s… doing well for himself.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.44.05 AM

He has a bit of a strange obsession with chairs, though.

Then I got pulled over to the triplets’ birthday, while I was also working on helping Antimony perform her job.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.47.55 AM


We meet again, old friend…

I’m not as bothered by the teal hair since there’s only like one other person in the house with it right now. Caesium’s a light sleeper and insane, if I haven’t mentioned yet.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.49.46 AM

We moved on up to actual ghosts!

This is Bo Ho.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.49.50 AM

He likes Antimony, apparently.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.51.08 AM

He got mad when we tried to convince him to go back to the afterlife, so we tried with the banshee banisher, but it didn’t work. You basically spam a few interactions like ‘talk about full life’ and ‘reassure about loved ones’ until you’re best friends, then they’ll move on.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.54.10 AM

Barium is named Barium, apparently, because that’s what he does to his enemies. His favorite color is, obviously, black, and he is a perceptive couch potato. Not Evil. Somehow.


Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 9.55.50 AM

And Lanthanum’s, too! I think it’s a slightly different shade than Barium’s, which is cool. He’s brave and easily impressed. He looks slightly less evil than his brother.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 10.00.16 AM

Antimony had an accident while I was focusing on finding the last ghost in the house. I take full responsibility for this.

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 10.03.49 AM

And here’s a ghost who is… from Egypt, apparently, according to her surname, ‘Tut’. Which wasn’t even King Tut’s name, but whatever. I’m not going to try to figure out the history of this house.

  1. Ha ha! They definitely don’t deserve turkey after leaving the infants on the ground! And this:
    “He has a bit of a strange obsession with chairs, though”
    YES! I was like “what’s with the chairs?!?” HILARIOUS.
