Hey guys, and welcome back to Herping and Derping! I meant to have this chapter up a bit sooner, but my sleeping/waking cycles have been really screwed up. I don’t know how well this will flow because I pulled an all-nighter and I’m exhausted from that but we’ll see if I make any sense or not momentarily.
First things first, congratulations to Patty! I don’t think I’ve actually gotten a Sim up this far in the medical career before… honestly, it gets to the point where I get bored. XD But yeah! Maybe we’ll have her max it out?
Whatcha doing now, Patty?
Patty: Treating myself to a little reward for a job well done.
I’ve no objections.
So she decides to go to the summer festival! But that’s not all…
Er, wait a minute. This sudden change in lighting reminds me of something…
But instead of Terry Crews, we’ve got Joe! He’s not quite as awesome as a “beautiful chocolate man!” but he’ll do. 😉
Yeah, nobody beats Terry Crews…
Erm, here’s something random. Has anybody else noticed this sign before? It makes me laugh uncomfortably. XD
Patty: Huh. That’s a lot of flamingos.
Concession Stand Lady: Are you going to buy something or are you just going to stare at the décor?
HOT DOG. IT’S A GIANT. HOT. DOG. CAN. YOU. BELIEVE. IT.
And also, this is my first time buying firecrackers! Patty bought up a whole bunch of them because this family is a bunch of rich fuckers who own half the town I thought they would be fun for later.
Sparkly rainbow all the way across the sky……. ooooooooooooo…….. So intense!
Tina: So, here we are several months later.
It’s not several months later. I just didn’t take many pictures of the babies during their babydom because it’s boring when they’re that age and I was busy enough as is trying to prevent a social worker visit.
Sheldon: Wooo! Partay!
Tina: Well, let’s get this over with.
Just be thankful that all of the birthdays will happen in one batch. It’s better than a birthday a day which you see a lot of in legacies.
This one is Squilliam.
This one is Kevin.
And I’m officially a Kevin fangirl. *squees*.
And here’s Squidward!
I guess I was going crazy during all of this excitement… I don’t have a transition photo for Squilvia at all. XD
The party was eventful in other ways. Herp apparently thought it appropriate to hit on his great grandson’s wife. At their kids’ birthday.
Wow. Good job with the attraction system, EA.
NO. NOT USED. D:
Sheldon: *singing* The stars at night are dull and dim, when they have to be over dumb old stupid Texas!
Don’t you dare take the name of Texas in vain!
Sheldon: What’s so great about dumb ol’ Texas?
Er… I’m at a loss. But I was born there.
Sheldon: Everything makes sense now, knowing that…
Heheheheheheheheheheheh……. Looks like there’s somebody else around who doesn’t like you talking smack about Texas…
Sheldon: Oh what fresh hell is this?
I think you know. You saw it happen to your mother.
Sheldon: Shit. I knew I should have brought my alien repellant with me today.
Alien: Heeeeeeere’s Spacey!
Spacey? That’s the best you could come up with?
Alien: Don’t blame me, blame the writer.
Sheldon: I take it all back! Texas is awesome! Howdy ya’ll! Waaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!!!!!!!
Sheldon: I’m too young to be probed!!!
Oh, I’m sure they were *really* friendly… *snickers*
That alien broad is right. I’m terrible at writing after not sleeping for 30 hours.
Sheldon: Well that was fast. I didn’t even get her number.
Sheldon: And I feel so… violated.
Sleep it off. I’m sure you’ll feel better.
LOOK WHO CAME. IT’S CUDDLES. CUDDLES! ❤
Dutchman: I was wondering when you’d come back around, Cuddles.
Cuddles: I thought it was about time for me to make an appearance. Wouldn’t want to sink the Duddles ship now, would we?
Squilliam: Swomebody fweed me, pwease!!!
Sorry Squilly, I don’t think they can hear you over the sound of their… amorous activities.
Herp! I would have thought you of all people would appreciate the Duddles ship!
Herp: I still haven’t forgiven that boy for deflowering my granddaughter before she was even an adult!
Oh yes… good times with the woohooer mod. Good times.
Patty: Too… many… ghosts!!!
Seriously Patty. You’re either going to have to get used to all of your dead relatives hanging around or you’ll have to move out. You’re just about useless at home because you’re constantly passed out on the floor. XD
Patty: Come on, Squidy! Come to cousin Patty! Let’s show the God-voice that I’m not useless!
I might have been too harsh earlier. She actually does do a lot for the kids, especially considering she doesn’t have any obligation to take care of them (she’s like their second cousin or something…).
Err… Patty isn’t the only one taking care of the toddlers though. Everybody has a hand in it.
Seriously these are like all of the pictures that I have from their toddlerhood because it was so hard to do anything but train the little bastards fuckers kids. I had to force myself to play through it. That was a long five sim days.
At this point, they have all learned how to talk. Walking’s the next step, and Squids the first one to learn that one.
Woo! Squids got genes!
NO NOT SAM!!!!!!!!
WHY DOES THIS ALWAYS HAPPEN TO ME?!?!?! I ONLY FORGOT TO FEED THE BIRD FOR A WEEK!!!
Oh, and this is how Sheldon works. He stargazes to raise his logic skill and finds galaxies/planets/other various space shit and that’s how he earns money and gets promotions. Because the ghost jobs are glitching like crazy. Seems like soon it’ll be time for another neighborhood. I’VE ALREADY BUILT THE HOUSE 😀
Well gee this looks familiar.
Sheldon: What this again? I’m kind of bored with this.
What do you want me to do? Apparently you’re quite the interesting test subject.
And one hour later…
Right on time.
And no, he hasn’t turned up pregnant. Don’t get excited. :S
Well that’s good news.
And we’re right back to bad again and NO.
NO NO NO NO NO. PENNY. D:
R.I.P, Penny. You will be missed. Mostly by Peaches, your on-again/off-again flame.
WTF ALIENS LEAVE US ALONE.
I can’t get them to stop coming here and yet I can’t get them to abduct the Sim I want abducted. *grumble grumble*
Seriously though, did you guys see the time lapse there? I pretty much went 24 Sim hours without taking any pictures (only screen clippings). That is how crazy I was going about all of this damn toddler stuff.
Oh and I guess at some point I sent Dutchman to the summer festival and had her enter a hot dog eating contest. XD
She… didn’t win. D:
In other news, these two are constantly getting promoted. 😛 It’s too bad we really don’t need the money. Maybe we should try burning the excess? 😉
OMG. KEVIN. I LOVE YOU KEVIN. *huggles*
Look at how cute he is. *smooshes face*
Sheldon: I’m on patrol, I’m on patrol! I’m on patro-o-o-o-ol!
Wow there are a lot of Spongebob references this chapter.
Not that I’m complaining. Keep patrolling, Sheldon, you’re doing something right obviously.
As is Patty. 🙂
I don’t have a favorite, I swear.
And I seriously have no idea what the fuck is going on right now in this chapter. I blame the no sleep thing and the coffee.
I had a lot of coffee.
Dutchman: I want some of whatever is making the God-voice act so bizarre, if you’ve got it. If not, I’ll take a rainbow popsicle please.
Dutchman: I don’t get it.
Well it’s sorta shaped like… oh forget it.
I don’t know what I’m laughing at and I’m at risk of falling asleep on my keyboard. I’m sure there will be typos abound in this chapter. Please ignore them. I claim insanity.
Sheldon: Give me something too! Like that creepy bunny on the side of your truck. I want to take my… revenge.
Sheldon: Heheh… I’ve been waiting for this confrontation for a long time, creepy freezer bunny of doom…
Freezer bunny of doom: *gulps*
THIS IS A RARE MOMENT. CHERISH IT. CHERISH IT.
Shel’s on the job.
And apparently he’s part fairy.
Nice positioning, random Moonlight Falls lady standing behind Sheldon.
Wow Patty, you could have taken a car…
Yeah I don’t know how effective that will be at this point considering you flew here through the rain on a broomstick but go for it.
Sheldon: Yeah, that’s a boy Kevin! You’ll be a great musician one day at this rate.
Kevin: (I’ve got everybody in this family wrapped around my adorable little fingers.)
Wow that is the most conniving face I’ve ever seen a toddler make in this game.
Take a page from Squidward’s book, Kevin – act innocent and sweet. Readers may find they like that better. 😛 Or at the very least, the EVP will be less creeped out.
Seriously. Why? Why?!
Sheldon: What?! I need that next promotion!
Yeah. And your mother is going to need therapy after all of this.
Speaking of promotions… it’s been forever since Tina’s gotten one. Like I said, the neighborhood is glitching… Sheldon can’t do half of the job’s he’s assigned, and Tina’s boss changes every other day so it’s impossible for her to build up her relationship with the boss to a level where her career performance increases significantly. And the relationship with the boss is a huge part of the business track. D:
I think I took this to show that Dutch is still mixing potions. I’m going to go with that anyway.
Look who came to visit! Chip! 😀
Chip: I’ve come to say… goodbye. Penny’s gone, and my time will be here soon as well.
Don’t say that Chip. 😥 We’ll miss you.
PLEASE SOMEBODY TELL ME WHAT IS GOING ON BECAUSE I KNOW I TOOK THESE PICTURES BUT I CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHY I WOULD TAKE THIS PICTURE.
Actually, this picture might have been an accident, sometimes I press the c key on accident…
They got another bird! Because this family takes such good care of birds that getting another one made so much sense.
This one is a falcon. A. Freaking. Falcon.
Tina: Well, today’s the day we’ll be rid of toddlers. I’m looking forward to it.
Guys. I think they might be plotting the death of their four young children.
Or it might just be birthday time. That would explain the excited Squilliam face.
Ahhh, Squilliam, you’re a cutie!
Er… okay then.
Well he’s an interesting mix of characteristics, isn’t he?
Kevin’s turn! 😀
OMGEEE. Kevin. Kevin. I want to steal you.
Kevin: That’s creepy, but flattering.
Oh my gosh, guys. He’s never going to leave the house. XD
Squilvia! The much-ignored daughter.
And she’s cute too! Even though you might not be able to tell with her derpy face.
Er… does she seem as though she’s developing into the antagonist in a spy movie to anybody else?
Squid’s the last one of the quads to age up.
And I kept him bald because I thought it suited him. 🙂
Wow. And he’s never going to talk to anybody.
This is an interesting group of siblings. Oh, and FYI, they all learned all three of the toddler skills, too. 🙂 I really don’t know how I managed, especially since I only play them on toddler for five days and there were four of them. XD
Sheldon, what are you doing? It’s cold out obviously.
Sheldon: I sense some kind of… disturbance.
Sheldon: Better check it out with my telescope.
He acts so surprised, but this has happened every single night this entire week. The family should be used to this by now.
Sheldon: Well, that was fun. Same time next week?
Alien: You know it!
What, we’re making this a regular excursion?
Sheldon: Well, it’s actually quite a nice trip. We usually go to a nice interstellar cafe, order drinks, and talk about planetary extinction events. We have very fascinating conversations.
Also fascinating… another promotion! This is the highest I’ve ever gotten in the medical career, without a doubt. 😀
And speaking of fascinating things… these two who are uncontrollable showed up haunting at the same time and did this. ❤
Wow I love this. ❤ So cute.
Patty however… doesn’t take this too well.
Wait… who’s woohooing in Patty’s bed? We know it’s not her, she’s out cold downstairs.
Well, it’s not Sheldon. He’s sleeping off his abduction.
And it’s not Dutchman either, she’s busy bathing while being watched by the creepy canine gnome. But then…
Wow. I can’t believe they autonomously did that there.
Does nobody have respect for Patty’s things?! XD
Guess what? It’s fall! 😀
Oh, and this happened. 😀 I think that was actually the reason I was out looking for sparkly things earlier… it was for alchemy supplies.
Squilliam and Kevin: *awkward stares*
*twiddles thumbs* I don’t know what to do about this… this whole family is socially awkward.
Well, at least they’ll collaborate together on their homework. That’s something.
Squilvia: Collaborate? Psssh. I’m not helping those two dunderheads out. They can figure this stuff out on their own like I did!
Kevin: What fuckery is this?
Squilliam: The title says ‘math’, but my heart says ‘jail’.
And this is where we’ll end this chapter! I really don’t know how it reads considering I’m half crazed due to sleep deprivation. WOO!
Erm. Happy New Years everybody! Hope 2012 was good for you! Until next time, happy simming!
