I can't think of a catchy title...

I loaded up my game for a little while Saturday and checked in on the Simmons. I only played for a little while, because my optical drive was making an awful noise. I had my laptop checked a couple weeks ago because it's been making noise for a long time now & I just haven't looked into it since it was still working fine. Turns out it's my optical drive & it needs to be replaced. I took it in for repair this week but the drive they had was DOA, so I'm waiting for them to get a new one. I might not play until then because the noise has gotten worse since they opened up my computer. Don't wanna take any chances!!

Now for the update:

First off, Kadence is now a teenager. She had aged up last time I played, but I hadn't taken any pictures of her.

Teenage Kadence in her EA-issued outfit. Really EA? Really? On another note, do you see how skinny this girl is? I think she's as skinny as a sim can get!

My first order of business was to give Kadence new clothes. No sim deserves to look that tacky!

Why didn't anyone tell me it's so much fun to detonate stuff?! Kimber needed new scrap & there was none in the scrap piles, so I had her detonate some stuff.

 She blew up a chair...

 and this globe.

 So much fun!

  I made Star quit her job in the music career, so she's unemployed now & has time to cook wonderful meals for her family & clean house (because it's obvious the maids don't know how). I gave her a new dress so she'd be more comfy :)

I completely forgot to mention this invention gnome last time. Kimber discovered it while using her inventing table. I hadn't noticed that he was no longer on the desk in Kimber's room, until I just happened to look in the bathroom. He must be fascinated by the clean toilet!

 Can't a girl get a tattoo without seeing someone die? Kimber was all set to get inked when the stylist died. Of course everyone had to come out of the salon, including Kimber & the tattoo artist, & witness the death & chat with Grimmy.

 This is the first time I've had a sim get a tattoo, but I kinda knew what to expect after seeing stuff online. However I didn't realize she'd have to be half nakie to get her arm tattoed!! 

 Kaylynn's doing well with her painting. She even accepted & fulfilled an opportunity to decorate the Bistro in town. If I'm not mistaken, she's level 8 now.

This was so funny I had to include it. Apparently, when Mr. Gnome isn't spending his time gawking at clean toilets, he enjoys a game of Sim Gnubb.

SIDE NOTE: Am I the only one who enjoys keeping my sims looking 'cartoony'? I visit a lot of sim sites & I see so many people who make their sims more realistic-looking. Don't get me wrong, to each his/her own, but I like that my sims look like cartoon pixel people :)

Beach House Added to Downloads page

I added my Beach House lot to the downloads page. This is the first house I built in the Sims 3 :) If you find any problems with it, please let me know as I haven't used it in a while & can't remember if there was anything that needed to be changed in the uploaded version.
