June starting us back off on the wrong foot… Fail.

Europium: … what’s this baby’s name again?

Erbium. I remember because we already have a kid named Terbium. Also because I looked it up a couple days ago.

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 8.41.33 PM

Standing in your wife’s pee. Romance, folks.

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 8.43.34 PM

Family day out!

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 8.49.25 PM

June: Can you believe anyone in this family could not like videogames?

Terbium: Whatever, Mom. I’ll be here taking care of the kid that stole my name.
Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 8.49.51 PM

Holmium decided to stay home. His loss.

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 8.53.17 PM

He’s gonna miss the bowling alley.

Arnold is playing foozball with someone else at the bar.

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 8.55.37 PM

Er… hi.

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 8.56.06 PM

Gadolinium:Wanna play with me,  Terb?

Terbium: I would, but I made a joke about holding the baby and now I’m stuck with him.

She kept getting the action in her queue, but couldn’t put Erbium down.
Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 8.57.20 PM

Europium: Well… you’re cute.

June: I am standing ten feet away from you and in the process of picking up a very heavy bowling ball, dear. You might want to rethink

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 9.00.16 PM

Europium: … I think I might have made a mistake that will blow up in my face.

Dammit Arnold, I can’t take you anywhere, can I?
Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 9.05.13 PM

And June’s throwing money into the arcade cabinets.

June: I said that I liked video games, didn’t I?

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 9.07.07 PM

Europium: And then she said…

Terbium: Dad, who are you even talking about?

Europium: … I have no clue.

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 9.08.05 PM

Terbium: Oh, finally, I can put you down. My arms hurt like hell, kid.

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 9.09.27 PM

And Gadolinium immediately pulls him out of the crib.

Europium: Hey, I wanna hold the baby now for some reason.

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 9.09.43 PM

Gadolinium: ‘Kay Dad.

Terbium: Goddammit. I can’t leave you people alone for five seconds.

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 9.11.42 PM

June: Bonfire time! 😀

Terbium: Good, I need to watch something burn to get to my happy place. : )

June: … well, time to leave the fire unattended.

Smokey the Bear is sad.

Dysprosium went to visit a friend, but he wouldn’t let her in the gates because he’s a butt.

Scary Flowers

Welcome to another chapter of the Mendeleev ISBI! Last time, Cerium died and then I had finals and just a lot of stress so I haven’t played for a WHILE. But yesterday I booted up my game and played, so we get more Mendeleevs now!

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 10.49.24 AM

Arnold seems to be doing alright. Sleeping on the hard, stone floor…

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 10.52.39 AM

… who are these kids on our porch?

Dysprosium: Hell if I know.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.05.46 AM

Cute flirting couple yes yes.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.06.11 AM

Cute in a different way school cheer.

Europium: Vooooooo gerbits!

… did either of you even go to college?

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.06.46 AM

Ah yes, the teenage years.

Terbium: Hey, moron.

Gadolinium: Person person minus, sis. Person person minus.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.07.51 AM

Gadolinium: Well, at least I’m not a NERD who plays video games constantly.

Dysprosium: Could you two pick somewhere else to be asshats? I’mm trying to do my homework.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.12.11 AM

:O I saw you do that, missy.

Terbium: What whoopie cushion? I was just going out to start a bonfire.

I sawww youuuuu.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.12.42 AM

I dunno. I really liked the angle of this picture.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.13.06 AM

I thought that Terbium was going to play darts with Gadolinium, but he’s playing on his own. : P

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.14.06 AM

Nervous makes the fire bigger. Now it’s a real party!

… but everyone’s sleeping.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.16.03 AM

… almost everyone.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.17.13 AM

Terbium: Y’know, mom I just noticed we don’t have a computer room anymore…

Huh. I’ll have to get on that.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.17.46 AM

Terbium: It’s a good thing you’re not having any more kids. Maybe we can turn the nursery into a study.

June: Ha… about that…

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.18.54 AM

Hey, don’t faint when there’s a fire to tend!

Smokey the bear would not be happy.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.20.44 AM

Holmium has school but he’d rather eat cake.

He got chewed out later but stayed in the house anyway.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.30.30 AM

Gadolinium: You know, now that there won’t be any more kids, we can turn the nursery into a game room.

June: About that…

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.31.33 AM

Europium got old. He looks pretty much the same.

Then Arnold got asked out on a date. Poor dude’s sad because his wife died, so why not?

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.33.11 AM

Arnold: A storm cloud has settled over my heart… : (

Camille: Yeah, but you’re hot.

Arnold: You’re not bad either. 😉

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.34.08 AM

… you’re clearly not at the party either, Camille.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.35.54 AM

Arnold immediately went on another date the next morning. Didn’t even make it home from his first one.

Arnold: Women are just kind of falling all over me all of a sudden. So I’m actually kind of over being sad about my wife now.

What is with this sudden influx of dates for Arnold?

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.38.52 AM

… no way in hell, Neo.

While Arnold is dating half of the town’s female population, Europium was off doing stylist work. I leave him for two seconds to check up on Arnold, and come back to this.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.43.18 AM


Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.43.34 AM

And Cecil made this face in response to being rejected.

That is… certainly a face.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.45.18 AM

Terbium: RAWR!

Europium: Oh, hello. Didn’t see you there.

Not the reaction she was hoping for, but Terbium will never be as frightening as flowers.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.45.55 AM

Although that is a bit worrying, I’ll admit.

Terbium: If I can’t break the laws of man, I will break the laws of physics.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.46.12 AM

Arnold… still hasn’t come back.

Arnold: … I may be stuck in the tall grass.

Careful! There are wild pokemon there!

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.47.27 AM

Gadolinium up to his tricks.

Gadolinium: You’re such a NERD, mom!

… you are really missing the point of this legacy.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.48.38 AM

Dysprosium: I heard Gads was making fun of you, Mommy. That’s okay. We can geek out over comic books together.

June: You’re officially my new favorite child.

Terbium: Er… what about me?

June: Only if you can beat me in Smash.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.49.48 AM

June: You’re just mashing buttons!

Terbium: Yeah, and winning!

While the nerds were doing their NERD things, Gadolinium was being cool…

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.50.22 AM

… telling a ghost story to absolutely no one.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.52.18 AM


Europium: Quick! What’s the next element on the periodic table?

June: Can’t that wait until the baby is OUT of me?

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.52.57 AM

… you really are stuck, aren’t you?

Arnold: Nope. Just figured it out. Now I’m heading back to my calm and peaceful home where nothing exciting is currently happening.

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 11.54.20 AM

Holmium: Someone’s at the door.

Gadolinium: I’ll deal with it.

Holmium: And Mom’s having a baby.

Gadolinium: … not dealing with that one.

Cheat Death with One Weird Trick

So, uh… busy semester. I’d love to tell you that next semester will be different, but I literaly have no idea what I’m doing next semester or anything. Pretty stressful. And stressful = bury myself in sims!

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 2.55.16 PM

When I open the game, people were still at the park, but they started heading home shortly after.

Arnold: I’m just going to take this kid upstairs.

… you have ‘expire’ in your queue.

Arnold: Oh? Do I?

Gadolinium comes home with a werewolf named Romulus.

And his twin brother Remus.

Where’s Terbium? Hiding under the bus?
Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 3.03.48 PM

Terbium: If I don’t go home, maybe people will worry about me and feel horrible for no reason.

I doubt anyone will notice, but you do whatever evil little thing you have planned to cause pain to your family.

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 3.04.11 PM

Doing your homework kind of negates the evil.

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 3.06.00 PM

I have Europium befriend the nice twin, Romulus, in case he could be useful.

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 3.07.27 PM

Romulus: … I don’t know why I know those horrible rumors about your sex life, but I’m glad they’re not true. Maybe I can sleep at night now.

Terbium found her way back home and did not die.

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 3.26.17 PM

After giving a makeover, Europium needed to befriend this guy Irving so he could promote the bistro. I was going to send Europium back home when his mom died, but Good Guy Irving started to console Europium and it was so cute.

Irving: That’s right, dude. Hug it out.

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 3.28.22 PM

Used Terbium’s action that I’m not sure if I used or not now that I think about it to have her meet Romulus.

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 3.35.51 PM

Cecil really let himself go. : (

Europium: … why am I giving haircuts the day after my mother passed away?

It was birthday time, so we invited Irving over.

Gadolinium is flirty now.

Hey Yttrium! I had no idea any of the ghosts were even out!

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 9.26.27 AM

Europium had more work to do the next day, except the one guy never showed up. Instead, this woman who might be his ex or something heart-farted.

Fairy: I mean, he ordered a ‘single sim wardrobe’ from you, so if we were dating, we aren’t now.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 9.28.41 AM

Turns out the guy was stuck on the sidewalk.

Hey Cecil!

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 9.32.02 AM

Europium: Now you can stand on the sidewalk for all eternity in style.

The picture’s dark, but I figured I could take another one when the sun was up. It wasn’t like he was going anywhere, right?

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 9.34.36 AM

Apparently he was. : I

Guy: I’ma have to cancel our appointment.

Twelve hours after you were supposed to meet us.

Guy: *casually walks away as if he hadn’t been stranded all day*

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 10.24.30 AM

There was still work the next day, but I didn’t send Europium out because we had FOUR birthdays to do.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 10.34.16 AM

Terbium is now an evil slob who wakes up at the drop of a pin.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 10.38.57 AM


Gadolinium gained hydrophobic to go along with… whatever he had before. : /

Gadolinium: … sure, but you remember HER traits.

She’s an evil sim and I was putting in an effort to make her look slobby. It’s a miracle when I even remember the new traits, kid.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 10.42.19 AM

Dysprosium was next. No new traits or anything.

Her eyebrows also look like they carry the angry gene.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 10.44.18 AM

Holmium didn’t even make it downstairs.

Dem eyes, tho.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 10.46.02 AM


I don’t really blame June, though. Four infant/toddlers having birthdays is brutal.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 10.47.56 AM

Yeah, just… float through a sleeping guy.

We need a lesson on ghost etiquette in this house.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 10.48.30 AM

Isn’t today your first day of school?

Terbium: Nope. Sunday.

… so it is.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 10.50.14 AM

Which means it’s time for a family outing.

There are a LOT of sandcastles here. I thought Terbium would smash them.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 10.52.36 AM

Terbium: Smash someone else’s hard work? I’d never! I’m just playing nicely with my dollie.

You can’t fool me; I know what traits you have.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 10.53.22 AM

And now there are rumors that Europium was arrested. We’ll probably have to deal with those sometime.

Not right now, though.

Hey guys, I have a weekend course on top of regular classes right now. Things are kind of hectic. I’ve had these pictures for a while without writing anything, and I am piss poor at taking notes. : /

We could open a gallery.

Meanwhile, Europium’s doing work as a stylist.

Screen Shot 2015-09-08 at 10.48.20 AM

Pickier than the people deciding how much that dragon scribble was worth, at least.

Cerium went off on a ‘date’ with one of her coworkers, but I think they just chatted for a while and he left.

Yes, he.

That’s not her date playing Frisbee with Cerium, that’s just the other coworker who came to hang with Cerium after Cerium spent an entire night in the dump.

Screen Shot 2015-09-08 at 11.30.40 AM

Balancing Act

Hello, hello! I’m back at college!
Um… here’s sims.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.39.19 PM

It’s time for a wedding, as Europium’s a celebrity so it means he has to get married or there will be a scandal!

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.39.21 PM

Table: Omigod I’m your biggest fan.

O… kay.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.40.34 PM

And I didn’t give June an actual wedding-y dress.


Um… we’re being super nonconformist and making a statement about weddi– screw it I’m lazy.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.41.09 PM

We have a pretty nice setup on the side of the house, even if Neo is ignoring the bride in favor of taking pictures of some other random girl.

Neo: June’s going to be my sister-in-law. I’m sure there will be other opportunities to take pictures of her. : /

*casually places picture of pro wedding design on blog*

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.42.09 PM

They got married and it was beautiful.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.42.29 PM

You may now kiss the bride!

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.42.59 PM

Everyone’s so moved by the wedding!

Look, that one guy’s even sparkling!

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.43.25 PM

… oh.

Death: Oh. Er… *brushes dust off* If I’d known I’d be coming to a wedding, I would have put on my formal robes. : I

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.43.54 PM

And while THAT was going on, I noticed THIS behind my wedding setup, thereby retroactively ruining all my beautiful pictures.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.44.03 PM


Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.44.51 PM

Europium: I can’t reach the cake because June’s in the way!

June: Wait… I’m blocking the cake? That means if I don’t move, this can ALL be MINE.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.46.22 PM

… aren’t you afraid of ghosts, Europium?

Europium: What ghost I don’t see any ghost. *stares intently at plate*


Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.52.29 PM

June graduated the next day.

… “Most Likely to Take Over the World”?


Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.53.28 PM

But I like her kitty hat.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.55.24 PM

While that’s going on, I’ve got Europium working on the sketch table for his job as a stylist. He’s got days off because of the wedding so we can’t actually do any work.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.56.03 PM

DAMMIT AR- oh, the sink’s just broken. Carry on.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 3.56.57 PM

… so I forgot about the rule that sims can’t woohoo with the occult if they’re a celebrity or something. : /

“Bad actions”? “Inappropriate behavior”?

Sims 3 Late Night more like Sims 3 Morality Police

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 4.11.40 PM

I said no, ’cause she’s married, but if June and Arnold carry on I might just say yes for the next one.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 4.15.35 PM

I noticed that Arnold had enough LTH for the wing change or whatever, so I changed his wing color because I didn’t like the shade of pink he had.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 4.17.15 PM

Neo will you stop.

Neo: But he’s cuter now that his wings are green!

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 4.17.57 PM

Europium: Wow, you’re getting pretty big.

June: Yup. Soon the baby will be old enough to vote.

Europium: … I think you’re moving a bit too fast, dear.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 4.18.30 PM

Not fast enough, according to the baby.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 4.18.49 PM

We interrupt this birth to bring you news from Cerium!

Thanks I didn’t want diversity or anything. I love having everyone in the family look similar. : /

Arnold: June had twins!

Barium: Late night old man football toss GO!

Good to see they’re settling in.

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 2.57.01 PM

June found a bed…

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 2.58.13 PM

As did Arnold and Cerium.

Too bad it’s the bed meant for Europium. : /

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 3.02.14 PM

Random Guy: GUYS? The door is locked!

That’s the POINT.

You don’t even have the excuse of being a zombie. Or a paparazzi.

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 3.10.19 PM

Europium’s LTW involves the Stylist career. I haven’t dealt with the stylist thing in a while, so it might be interesting.

So a salon was placed and Europium went to sign up.

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.16.42 PM

Then he graduated.

Most popular. Awesome.

There are a few days before Europium can start his job, so I set him up with the drawing table to research fashion designs.

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.31.50 PM

June: Um…

Wait, what? I could have sworn Barium had more time!

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.32.25 PM


Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.32.59 PM


Barium: Well, I had a long life.

I thought it would be longer! ;_;

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.42.17 PM

The next day was for getting over Barium’s death, so mostly people sobbing. June took up darts.

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.44.32 PM

SERIOU-oh, I don’t know you. Carry on, then.


Door: ;_; Why did this happen.

So that was a thing.

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.50.42 PM

Neo was at the salon when Europium came for his first day of work.

Stylist: And what sort of look were you looking for today?

Neo: I want a look that says ‘not related to my incestuous little brother’.

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.53.18 PM

Promethium was there, too.

Neo: Okay. I don’t think anyone recognizes us. Now it’s time to skip town.

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.53.36 PM

Apparently you can counter fairy tricks.

Neo: Maybe if you didn’t try that on me EVERY DAY I wouldn’t have figured out how to throw it back at you, you ass.

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.55.01 PM

Europium did a stylist thing while I watched the two dorks up there.

Europium: Maybe… try high heels? I dunno.

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.55.57 PM

Neo: Hey, who’s this cute stylist in the top hat?

Europium: Er… Neo? It’s me? I’m a young adult now.

Promethium: Play it cool, no one recognizes you in these shades. No one knows you’re related… I’m so ashamed to be connected to this family.

Me too.

Europium is sent home before he had a chance to do anything worse.

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 5.59.47 PM

Wren: Hey, I think I’m gonna go join my husband now.

June: … is anyone else tired of people dying every night?

And WHY is Wren in underwear now?


Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 6.05.04 PM

June had her birthday the next morning.

Europium: If I throw myself into this party, I won’t be thinking about how both my parents are dead! … : (

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 6.13.03 PM

Her new trait is… I forget. : I Oops.

June: If only that old couple I never really interacted with were still here… *sigh*

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 6.16.58 PM

June had her star tights on, so I went with it and dressed her in IF colors. We could go and look for non-IF spouses, but with how intent Europium is on hooking up with a family member, so let’s get these two together ASAP.

All in the Family

Hey guys!

… that’s it. Don’t know what else to say.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.30.35 PM

So I was watching the house and realized I had no idea where Samarium was… apparently she’d ended up at someone else’s house after school. Probably from one of those ‘can so-and-so go home with what’s-his-face after school?’ prompts.

… I should probably start reading those.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.31.38 PM

Cerium: SAMARIUM. You KNOW that if you’re going to go late-night hot tubbing, you’re supposed to invite ME.

Samarium: Mom! You’d embarrass me!

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.32.05 PM

Samarium: Dad, on the other hand…


She made that little ‘pss, hot’ finger thing, too. D8

Anyway I remembered that I still had teen actions I could use, ’cause sending them to prom shouldn’t even count and I don’t care if I used the teen actions. No one’s gonna condemn me for breaking up the little family get-together Sam and Europium have.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.41.55 PM

Europium: So, er… I was thinking we might want to consider breaking off the romantic stuff and just being friends. And by ‘friends’ I mean ‘cousins’. We’re cousins, Samarium.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.42.11 PM

Samarium: I can’t believe you’d do this to me, Europium! Do you KNOW how much it’s gonna hurt when I see you at family reunions? Do you?

Europium: Exactly. FAMILY reunions.
Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.42.38 PM

Samarium: Whatever. You obviously don’t have a brain if you can’t see what you’re missing out on.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.42.59 PM

Europium: So… um. Have you read the latest Miss Marvel?

Samarium: Oh. Yeah. It was really good.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.44.40 PM

Family outing to the pool was uneventful.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.47.21 PM

Except that Samarium refused to go and instead danced her heartbreak away.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.00.16 PM

An imaginary friend contacted us.

*sprays holy water at it*

I just get worried when the Imaginary Friends are like ‘HEY WE’RE FUNCTIONING LIKE NORMAL SIMS’ because that tells me something’s up with the game. : /

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.01.01 PM

Other things that tell me something’s up with the game: Cerium drinking coffee for four hours. It wasn’t her day to be controlled but I finally had to cancel the interaction.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.01.29 PM

The four hours of coffee didn’t even have any effect, so she passed out after work. Glorious.

Silver: WOOOO! Yeah! The older you get, the closer you are to dying and coming to ME, stud muffin. 😉

June: … my hair is broken.

Europium started a painting.

It will never be finished.

Aging up in a huge puddle in the bathroom.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.41.55 PM

Samarium: Aren’t I gorgeous?

Yes, now get out of the house and stop hitting on family members.

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 8.51.05 AM

I gave Europium a bit of an early birthday the next day. I have no idea which TH is supposed to be on which day and I’ve been wanting to have a new house for a while now, but thought I’d wait for Europium to take over.

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 9.02.24 AM

His final trait is never nude. : P

I changed his hair so it would be consistent with the top hat he has on for formalwear.

… isn’t there something better you could be reporting on?

Paparazzi: Honestly I’m trying to get the scoop on Sam and Europium’s illicit love affair.

They’re not in a relationship, okay? They just see one another as attractive, which isn’t incorrect, and completely understandable what with the surge of hormones and all.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.38.41 PM

Weird sim spent the entire school day standing in front of the building and doing the university cheer.

Wren: … we don’t actually register as being related after the move, so this bores me.

… I checked, and if I wanted we could actually ‘keep it in the family’ with the way the relationships between the cousins are. Not that I would, but the ‘no incest’ block that’s normally in place doesn’t seem to be there.

… are you going to change out of your dress, Cerium?

The cell phone woke him up.

Europium: No, I am not going to run around town finding semi-precious stones for you. Never call me again, or my eyebrows will find you, and I can’t be held accountable for what they do to you.

I’ve been playing this for years and I still come across things I don’t think I’ve seen before. Someone was playing the horror channel on the TV and it scared Europium.

Samarium: … is my hair even possible?

Europium: Tell your fairy friends I’m not going to Neverland.

Europium: Father, it is not proper birthday protocol to eat hot dogs when the cake has been set out, and certainly not with a bowl attached to your hand.

Wren: Woo, Europium! When can I stop cheering?

Europium: And Samarium is facing in the wrong direction.

Barium: Shut up and eat your cake.
