I’m Surrounded By Idiots Chapter 3

Charles is already a senior. I love his skin because it shows old age spots, even on his hands.

snapshot_57273e14_7728b3ea

The family love spending time out in the snow. Charles and Sarah are even more so in love than ever. Serena admires her parent’s open affection for each other.

snapshot_57273e14_77298dfe

Charles loves to paint and these are his three favourite ones.

snapshot_57273e14_f7298a9e

Sarah is being picked on by a friend that Serena brought home from school. I don’t know why she’s so easily picked on. He finally stopped when Nanny Heidi arrived and distracted him.

snapshot_57273e14_37298fb7

Sarah joins her husband into the senior years.

snapshot_57273e14_9729a1f2

Serena started this habit of jumping on the flower beds and ruining them. She also goes and ruins the paintings if they are left on the stand.

snapshot_57273e14_d729a25a

Charles always gets a chuckle at watching Karma eat. She gulps it all up so fast. This time even while eyeing the other plate.

snapshot_57273e14_3729be71

Charles is kept very busy in taking care of his family, but he finds time to spend with his wife alone as well.

snapshot_57273e14_1729c2b4

Karma does like a dog. She farts then turns to smell it.

snapshot_57273e14_d729c3f7

Karma is now a teenager. She loves different colors all mixed and mismatched together.

snapshot_57273e14_7729c44f

The sisters spend a lot of time together. Serena always watches out for her little sister to make sure no one is bullying her because she looks different.

snapshot_57273e14_5729c5ed

Charles and Sarah celebrate their golden anniversary. Charles has reached his LTW.

snapshot_57273e14_7729c9e7

Serena’s school friend, Jess King, flirted with her but she pushed him away. She wasn’t interested in boys, and for some reason especially not him.

snapshot_57273e14_5729cda4

Serena still goes to jump on the flowers and ruins them. Her aspiration is so low.

snapshot_57273e14_7729d78c

Karma is a happier teen. She helps a friend learn to dance.

snapshot_57273e14_1729da62

Serena becomes an adult, and as soon as she does she broke down, probably because she wanted to grow up good. Turns out she had the aspiration of “Family Funk-Out”.

snapshot_57273e14_7729e4c7

snapshot_57273e14_7729e4fb

Now that Serena is an adult, she will now be taking the torch.

snapshot_57273e14_3729e57c

Sims 3 – My First Time Playing

I just got The Sims 3 and my first experience wasn’t that good. First of all I think I will have to upgrade my Laptop because I was lagging a bit. The worse thing I found while playing are the controls!! I was all over the place with it, I just HATE it!

I tried to do my self sim. It took me over an hour, and although I realized it didn’t look exactly like me, I decided to try her out. Well she .. eh, I, am ugly. My resolution in the game must have been wrong because looking at these shots I look like a horse. I have a thin face, but I overdid it.

Screenshot

Darn that Sim looks extremely ugly, lol. Anyway, I have a headache after playing for a couple of hours, especially because of the controls.

Screenshot-5

This one made me laugh when she almost chocked on her salad. Weirdly that shot looks more like me, lol.

Screenshot-8

I hate those zzz’s. I noticed that Modthesims already has a mod that takes them out. When I told her to go to bed she stood besides the bed and it took like 10 sim seconds for her to finally decide to go to bed!! And the speed is way too slow even on ultra high speed.

Screenshot-10

I then went into a different house with a Maxis made Sim. Her name is Meadow I think. I don’t’ know why but she looked a lot fatter and butch while I was in the game. Like I said, it must be my resolution. I find it way too cartoony. Maybe if I upgrade my graphic card it will be better?

Screenshot-11

I hate those noses. I hate the wide eyebrows. I miss custom skintones and eyes. lol

Screenshot-16

I am wondering if most of the Sims 3 was done by England?

Screenshot-17

She had a guitar in her personal inventory and she pulled it out and started playing. I found that pretty cool.

Screenshot-18

I’m not crazy about the looks of the kids in The Sims 3. Sims 2 has better looking kids. They are cartoonish. Maybe custom contents will help. Or maybe it’s just my graphic card. But I am not crazy about Sims 3 as I thought I would be. And the controls…… arghhhhh…………. !!!!!!!

Screenshot-20

I’m Surrounded By Idiots Chapter 2

The following night after Charles Allen was abducted by aliens, he was dropped off.

snapshot_57273e14_77283193

Serena ran outside, excited that her daddy was back.

snapshot_57273e14_772831a7

What had they done to him? He didn’t remember anything!

snapshot_57273e14_572831c9

Serena wanted answers as to where her daddy had went, but he had none. He started crying.

snapshot_57273e14_172832b2

He fixed her some breakfast and hoped that things would get back to normal soon.

snapshot_57273e14_772832c3

Nanny Heidi certainly was a better Nanny. She cooked a big dessert to celebrate Charles being back.

snapshot_57273e14_f7283762

Charles and Sarah were as in love as ever, although he was starting to get fat and feeling strange.

snapshot_57273e14_d7284154

Suddenly sharp pains started in the lower area of his stomach. “OMG, honey, you’re in labour!” Sarah gasped.

snapshot_57273e14_172858fd

Well, he did want another child, so he got his wish.

snapshot_57273e14_d7285938

Baby girl Karma. [I do have an alien skin default replacement, and it’s the first time I have a baby with it. I thought it was still going to be greenish. And I thought I had added default alien eyes, but I don’t see them.]

snapshot_57273e14_972859a9

Charles spends some time with Serena teaching her to paint.

snapshot_57273e14_17286658

Karma is pretty… pretty scary looking! But they find her adorable and love her nonetheless.

snapshot_57273e14_17286868

Serena is already a teenager.

snapshot_57273e14_f7286ef2

Charles reached the top of his career and is now a City Planner. He received the drafting table as a gift reward.

snapshot_57273e14_172870bb

Karma is so funny to look at.

snapshot_57273e14_d728732a

She’s playing outside alone when a stranger stops to stare at her.

snapshot_57273e14_572893e5

Karma grows up happy, thanks to her daddy who taught her to walk and nursery rhymes.

snapshot_57273e14_b7289929

Everybody loves to spend time with her, especially Serena.

snapshot_57273e14_d728adb1

Charles has enough money to add extensions and make adjustments to the house.

snapshot_57273e14_7728a38b

Charles certainly loves and adores his family. He couldn’t have asked for better and wouldn’t want to change anything.

snapshot_57273e14_3728b0bd

I’m Surrounded By Idiots Chapter 1

I am doing the “I’m Surrounded By Idiots” Challenge. The Rules can be read Here. Basically, “The point of this challenge is to try to manage an entire household through several generations while only having one character under your control. Other household members must rely entirely on their artificial intelligence (or lack thereof), while their wants and needs remain forever hidden. Do you have what it takes handle all the responsibilities of a sim household from one sim’s perspective? Pass along the torch of awareness and keep the family going.” … in a nutshell.

The Torch Holder I chose is Townie Corey McCullough from Strangetown, he appeared in my Black Widow Challenge. I have him cloned, so he’s starting here fresh and with a different name – Charles Allen. I also changed his skin and eyes. I couldn’t think of a name and I was watching Two and a Half Men and thought of Charlie and Alan, so I  came up with that,

Charles’ aspiration is Family and his LTW is to Reach a Golden Anniversary with a spouse.

snapshot_57273e14_5727434a

His house isn’t much, but it’s all that he could afford since he doesn’t even have a job yet. I should mention that I am playing this Challenge in Veronaville. I have never played there yet.

snapshot_57273e14_972742df

He starts off by learning some cooking skills. He doesn’t even have any lights yet, and his floor is still grass.

snapshot_57273e14_5727445d

Some visitors drop by to visit him to the neighbourhood. What a weird bunch they were. He asked them to go home not long after because his main interest at the moment is to try to find a girlfriend, and none of the two held any interest to him.

snapshot_57273e14_b7274597

Someone brought him a free computer so he took the opportunity to start chatting online. He started chatting with Sarah Phillips. She showed him a small picture of herself and he was interested to find out more about her. He asked her if they could meet in person.

snapshot_57273e14_3727450f

Charles found her quite adorable, although she seemed a bit shy at first. He knew he wanted to see her again soon.

snapshot_57273e14_17274816

The next day he landed a job as a cement mixer.

snapshot_57273e14_f7274cb0

He spoke on the phone with Sarah quite a bit, and finally he got courage enough to ask her out on a date. He was really pleased to see the changes she had made on herself when he saw her again. She was even more adorable.

snapshot_57273e14_57274ddd

They really hit it off and their date lasted very late that night.

snapshot_57273e14_57274ee2

He asked her out on a date again, and again. They were both crazy for each other.

snapshot_57273e14_d72751c7

When he asked her to marry him, she said yes and they were married that same day.

snapshot_57273e14_97275276

She moved in with $15 thousand dollars which went mostly on the house, inside and out.

snapshot_57273e14_f7275cd3

She obviously has a job, although I have no clue as to what.

snapshot_57273e14_3727619c

Charles job is going well. He’s already had a promotion.

snapshot_57273e14_972761db

Soon they found out that Sarah was pregnant. Charles was so happy to be starting a family with the woman he loved.

snapshot_57273e14_77276350

Sarah kept falling asleep in her food. She’d eat a few bites, then fall asleep. Charles was really concerned.

snapshot_57273e14_d727653f

It was a very hard pregnancy. Charles tried his best to help her in any way he could.

snapshot_57273e14_f7276943

Finally baby girl Serena came along.

snapshot_57273e14_57276aab

Charles hired a Nanny, hoping that it would help Sarah to get back on her feet.

snapshot_57273e14_17276e68

Things were starting to get back to normal again, but then Sarah announced that she was pregnant again. Charles celebrated by making his special spaghetti.

snapshot_57273e14_572805ca

Unfortunately Sarah woke up in the middle of the night and had a miscarriage. [I didn’t even know this was possible in the game.]

snapshot_57273e14_b7276b92

She went into a depression after loosing the baby. She’d cry constantly.

snapshot_57273e14_17280b11

Charles tried to console and encourage her the best he could.

snapshot_57273e14_572809d4

Baby Serena is growing fast. She looks a lot like her daddy. [Probably the cutest toddler I’ve had in the game.]

snapshot_57273e14_f7281050

Sarah found out she is pregnant again. She is trying to take care of herself, but Nanny Sharlene isn’t helping her at all.

snapshot_57273e14_572814cd

She is constantly picking on Sarah and making her cry. Why is she so mean to her?

snapshot_57273e14_772814e9

That afternoon Sarah has another miscarriage. [The chef shown is because Sarah was cooking. I love Freetime, but I hate the fact that someone shows up each time you show interest in something!]

snapshot_57273e14_972815a0

When Charles came home that day he fired Nanny Sharlene. He couldn’t have one more day go by with how bad she was treating Sarah. It probably contributed to her miscarriage.

snapshot_57273e14_d7281621

He then hired Nanny Heidi. He hoped this one would be a lot better.

snapshot_57273e14_f7281b87

Sarah returns to work again and her spirit seems to go a lot better. Maybe she’s a fortune aspiration.

snapshot_57273e14_d7281c60

On his spare time, Charles likes to paint. He starts on a painting of Sarah while she is resting on the couch.

snapshot_57273e14_17282105

Charles didn’t want to put Sarah through another pregnancy, but she insisted that she wanted to try it one last time.

snapshot_57273e14_7728214c

By this time, Serena is already a child. She’s in very good spirits and every night Charles helps her with her homework.

snapshot_57273e14_97282c3c

Things are looking good for this pregnancy.

snapshot_57273e14_77282f37

Charles was looking through the telescope late one night when a UFO grabbed hold of him. It was around 1:30 am when he was snatched.

snapshot_57273e14_b7282fdc

Sarah was cooking when she suddenly had another miscarriage.

snapshot_57273e14_5728308b

Charles wasn’t around to help her and she was crying uncontrollably and forgot about the food on the stove. It eventually caught fire.

snapshot_57273e14_972830be

Fortunately they had a fire alarm and the firemen came quickly to extinguish the fire.

snapshot_57273e14_172830f2

Serena was awaken by the fire, but she wasn’t scared. She only wanted her daddy to come back home.

snapshot_57273e14_f728311c

Asylum Challenge Part 2 – Final

Jesmin finally got the Oceanography job career! It took over a week!

snapshot_9720c188_b7248cac

I find it funny how Cordell uses the bathroom and shower no matter who is in the room.

snapshot_9720c188_37248733

Jesmin sees her brother Syn walk by and invites him over.

snapshot_9720c188_d724919b

Syn is really not very nice. He goes outside and ruins Harvey’s snowmen.

snapshot_9720c188_b72493c9

Jesmin constantly has to fix stuff in the building. Thankfully Harvey is a great help.

snapshot_9720c188_5724927a

Brian plays in a puddle, pretending he’s a pirate and that the sea is rough.

snapshot_9720c188_5724990c

Jesmin gets close to Gerard Landry. It does her some good to have some playtime for herself.

snapshot_9720c188_17249c7d

They go on a couple of dates, but of course they have their dates at the asylum.

snapshot_9720c188_f7249d84

She constantly works out because her job calls for body skills. But often someone will just turn off the TV, it really pisses her off.

snapshot_9720c188_9724a9d9

She then invites her brother Colt over.

snapshot_9720c188_1724b1ea

Just as she was chatting with Colt a fire broke out in the kitchen. They often forget their cup of ramen in the microwave.

snapshot_9720c188_b725b9c9 

Luckily she wasn’t at work again and she was able to extinguish the fire before anyone got hurt.

snapshot_9720c188_1725ba07

Barbara Young comes to visit the asylum. Ivory finally gets to meet her son’s girlfriend.

snapshot_9720c188_f725c203

Jesmin often invites Cassandra over, she loves to spend a lot of time with Harvey. They seem to have the same chin.

snapshot_9720c188_b725c23f

Another fire breaks out on the stove and again Jesmin is home and extinguishes it.

snapshot_9720c188_5725c285

She fears that one day she will be gone at work and will loose one of her patients to one of these careless kitchen fires.

snapshot_9720c188_5725c2cf

Cordell uses a mop that he drew a face on and pretends it’s a girl. He really misses romance in his life. His mother, Ivory, mocks him. She hasn’t broken down this way yet.

snapshot_9720c188_f725c385

Jesmin is so busy that she forgot to order more food and the patients are starving.

snapshot_9720c188_f725c741

Harvey wants to have a family so bad. He pretends that the bag is a baby.

snapshot_9720c188_1725d0df

Jesmin’s career is going great. She puts most of her energy into her skills and making friends and she is having promotions quickly.

snapshot_9720c188_f725f698

But the poor patients often break down in uncontrollable sobs.

snapshot_9720c188_b725fdd6

Jesmin’s brother, Joseph comes to visit with Cassandra.

snapshot_9720c188_f7260002

Another fire breaks out on the stove and this time Jesmin is at work! It was 2:30pm when the fire started and she gets home at 3pm

snapshot_9720c188_b726077e

Finally she runs to extinguish it. The stove is all burned down, but the fire is still going. She has just reach the top of her career and is now Hand of Poseidon. She has reached her LTW!

snapshot_9720c188_d7260800

Jesmin NO! She goes and steps right on the flames! I tried to make her move but she just stayed there in distress!

snapshot_9720c188_f726084d

The others just screamed and didn’t help her out. She burned alive!!

snapshot_9720c188_b72608a8

Death came to get her. After all the fires she had extinguished, all the lives she’d saved, she wasn’t able to save herself.

snapshot_9720c188_772608c2

I still can’t believe it ended this way. After finally reaching her LTW. It was her last day in the asylum, she had actually succeeded her goal. She hadn’t even lost one patient. Yet, it’s over, she’s gone just like that.

snapshot_9720c188_5726091e

They couldn’t believe that Jesmin was really gone. She had helped them all to overcome their obstacles. She had cared so much that she had given her life for them.

snapshot_9720c188_372734ff

The End.

Asylum Challenge Part 1

The Rules to the Asylum Challenge can be read Here.

Here’s a picture of the gang I am starting with. I will introduce them one by one in a bit.

snapshot_9720c188_9720c189

Here’s a picture of the asylum. It’s just a plain, flat, white building.

snapshot_9720c188_3720d56e

Jesmin Black was born in my Black Widow Challenge. She is the 10th of 11 children that the widow had.

Jesmin Black has been committed to run a mental health facility against her will. To earn her freedom she must achieve her LTW [Lifetime Want] which is to reach the peak of the Oceanography career. Her aspiration is Knowledge. I did roll the dice to get those results.

snapshot_9720c188_1720da8a

Ivory Black. She is the Black Widow from my Black Widow Challenge and the mother of Jesmin. The rules says that everyone should be unrelated, so I cloned her so that she wouldn’t be related. However, in my writing they are related. She was committed to the asylum after being prosecuted for murdering all 11 of her lovers. She’s still a Romance aspiration.

snapshot_9720c188_9720d84e

Cordell Black is the son of Ivory, the Black Widow from my Black Widow Challenge, and he’s also in Son of a Black Widow. He is the 8th child of her 11 children. He’s a Romance aspiration. He has been committed after seeking professional help after 3 of his lovers passed away.

snapshot_9720c188_b720d86d

Kara is a Fortune aspiration [I used the dice]. She has been committed to the asylum because she believes she is the wife of Donald Trump and kept stalking him.

snapshot_9720c188_d720d884

Telly is a Romance aspiration [I used the dice]. She’s addicted to love and seeks it in all the wrong places. She was committed after kidnapping 3 men and proven to be insane.

snapshot_9720c188_d720d8c4

Harvey is a Family aspiration [I used the dice]. He’s such a perfectionist and when everything around him collapsed he broke down.

snapshot_9720c188_b720d9b2

Sally is a Knowledge aspiration [I used the dice]. She was committed after impostering as a nun. In her mind she believes she is a nun still.

snapshot_9720c188_9720da30

Brian is a Popularity aspiration [I used the dice]. He played a role playing game online so much that he believes he is one of the characters of a different race.

snapshot_9720c188_d720da4f

It starts out pretty smoothly. After they all met each other, they all started with activities outside.

snapshot_9720c188_3720dc41

Jesmin hurries to fix some sandwiches before one of the patients attempts to cook. [On the cupboard there is an espresso machine, I didn’t know it was too high in energy for the rules, but later I changed it to a lower one.]

snapshot_9720c188_d720dcf5

There is smaller room where the TV, a violin, and the telephone is. They can also gather and get to know each other more here.

snapshot_9720c188_3720de51

Jesmin hurried to fix food, but it wasn’t long before some of them started to cook themselves. She really feared one of them would cause a fire.

snapshot_9720c188_f720e104

Brian and Sally walk in while Ivory is having a shower. Not much privacy in this place.

snapshot_9720c188_d720e204

Jesmin hurries to get a bed before they get all full. She found a job in the medical career, although this is not what she wants nor needs. But there was no other options.

snapshot_9720c188_b720e23d

Cordell and his mother stay up late to eat and talk.

snapshot_9720c188_1720e316

Jesmin is having a hard time to get her Oceanography career, in the meantime she will work in the medical field. She doesn’t have much money and she needs to keep the patients fed and the bills paid.

snapshot_9720c188_5720e560

While Jesmin is at work, the patients have to fend for themselves and cook. Sally preaches the Bible at the table to anyone who will listen.

snapshot_9720c188_9721f019

Ivory admires herself. There are men around and maybe she’ll be able to snag one. She still looks pretty good for her age.

snapshot_9720c188_3721f18f

Cordell uses the bathroom no matter who’s in there. He isn’t shy about that sort of thing.

snapshot_9720c188_b721f1df

Jesmin didn’t buy any exercising equipments because she feared the patients would overuse it. Instead she uses the television to help motivate her workouts.

snapshot_9720c188_3721f58d

Some figure it’s better to eat directly from the fridge than sit at the table and listen to Sally preach.

snapshot_9720c188_b721f806

The shower is broken and Harvey constantly cleans the floor. He is very helpful around the Asylum. His perfection comes handy.

snapshot_9720c188_5721f869

Each day she comes home, Jesmin checks the paper for the Oceanography career, but it’s not showing up and it’s been almost a week. Today she can’t find the paper. Someone must have thrown it out.

snapshot_9720c188_f721f919

Worship this ball or be damned to hell… Poor Harvey often gets caught listening to her jibbers.

snapshot_9720c188_3721fc74

But even when no one is listening she goes on.

snapshot_9720c188_b721fd4e

Kara is depressed because Donald Trump hasn’t came to visit her yet.

snapshot_9720c188_77220142

“Shouldn’t you put pants on to play kicky ball?” Kara asks.
“I love to show off my body.” Cordell smirks.
“You had me at hello.” She swoons.

snapshot_9720c188_3722021a

Did Cordell start a trend? Now even Sally the nun is walking around in her underwear.

snapshot_9720c188_f722039e

Whenever Jesmin needs to have some fun, I make her play “red hands” with someone and I find the fun goes up fast. Here she is playing “red hands” with her mother Ivory.

snapshot_9720c188_772208c2

Jesmin tries to make friends. Here she is talking with Cassidy. Poor Harvey breaks down crying and Telly tries to sooth him.

snapshot_9720c188_37220938

Often when someone is cooking, they forget the food in the stove so Jesmin hurries to get it before it catches fire.

snapshot_9720c188_b7220c35

Sander, Cordell’s son and Jesmin’s nephew, comes to visit.

snapshot_9720c188_9722139c

Jesmin was outside talking with Sanders when she realized a fire had broke out in the kitchen. Someone caught the microwave on fire.

snapshot_9720c188_7722141a

She hurried to extinguish it. I am not sure if I am allowed to call the fire truck, so I didn’t.

snapshot_9720c188_77221438

She managed to put out the fire herself and she didn’t loose any appliances nor furniture, and most importantly no one died. Good thing she wasn’t at work.

snapshot_9720c188_97221554

Now the fun begins. Everyone is going to fight for the shower.

snapshot_9720c188_972215e7

It’s now winter and they are enjoying the outdoors. Harvey is making her second snowman.

snapshot_9720c188_57221aa8

Kara was cooking when she broke down.

snapshot_9720c188_17221d9b

Again it was a good thing that Jesmin wasn’t at work. She hurried and was able to extinguish the fire.

snapshot_9720c188_37221de9

Kara goes outside to beg for money. She says Donald Trump isn’t sending her money anymore.

snapshot_9720c188_d7221eee

Jesmin feels bad for her and goes to give her a gift.

snapshot_9720c188_77222648

Brian gives up trying to have his turn to the shower and decides to get naked in front of everyone and bathes in the kitchen sink.

snapshot_9720c188_17221f32

Quite a few days have gone by and Jesmin still hasn’t got the Oceanography job yet. I think it should be called “Fish Chummer” but I haven’t seen it yet.

snapshot_9720c188_f72221e3
