Chapter 2.3: Everyone’s Got Skillz

Yeah, yeah, I know it’s been forever since I posted but sometimes life just gets in the way.  I mean, I have 4 dogs and a newly acquired kitten my husband “found”.  My theory is he stole it off of someone’s porch.

Also, I was dreading posting this ‘cause there are soooo many pictures and wordpress will only let me insert one pic at a time into a post.  But no Fears!  I have discovered Qumana and now I can just drag and drop into the blog editor.  AWESOMENESS!!! I am retracting Qumana’s awesomeness.

I uploaded all my pics and got halfway through writing and it freaked out and now I can’t even edit the damn post.  So then I had to start over.  I’m so pissed right now.  So now you guys are only getting half a chapter ‘cause it like 10:00 and I have to go to work tomorrow.  Screw you Qumana!!  I am now using Windows Live Writer which still sucks but not as much.  Screw you too Windows!

Now to refresh your memories, last chapter Corbin Grew up, the Boudreaux’s got a second floor added to their house, the kids skipped school…a lot, The Twins grew up to overweight teenagers and worked on their fitness, and Val almost bitch slapped Nan on the front lawn for breaking curfew.  What a whore.

Screenshot-3Corbin: Homeschooling is hard 😦

Hey do you want be a loser when you grow up?  Now stop complaining and do your homework.

While Lisa and Corbin did their homework, Nan went tot he gym again.

Screenshot-4Nan: I’d like to play baseball with him wink wink

Simis: well, I am very handy.

ewww, creep.  She’s your son’s age and you’re married.  Besides, she’s giving googley eyes to Connor over there in the corner.

Screenshot-5Hmmm, maybe not.

Nan: oh oh here I come.  I’m a maneater.

Screenshot-6Connor: I’m so confused.  Why is she talking to that old man

Nan: I don’t have time for little boys.  I need a man.

Whoa, slow down there girlie.  Ugh, I feel sick.

So while Nan flirted with a man old enough to be her father, back at the house….

Screenshot-7Gordon and Val got into a little tiff

Val:  God, you never put the toilet seat down!

Screenshot-8Gordon: And you never leave it up!

I don’t know who’s stare is more intimidating.  mmmmm, G is so handsome.

Screenshot-10But all is well by the time bedtime comes around.  Val took her grandmother’s advise to never go to bed angry.  Looks like it worked ‘cause they’re both dreaming of babies…again.

Screenshot-11Lis:  Hi Readers.  Lovely day isn’t it?  You guys know I’m so much better than the others right?  I’m totally going to be the heiress.

Wow, what’s up the all the cockiness today?

Screenshot-12 Lis: so papa, what are the basic building blocks of cooking?

Gordon: Well, it starts with high quality cookware.

Lis: Really?  I thought it was high quality ingredients.

Screenshot-13Gordon: That too.  When are you going to give me grandchildren? Amanda won’t let your mother and I have any more kids

Yeah, I’m horrible.  But 5 is enough right now.  Geez, get off my back Gordon.

Screenshot-14Lis:*ignoring you*

Screenshot-15Corbin: Are there going to be lots of people at school?

Nan: Oh yeah, tons!

Corbin: I hate people

Poor little loner Corbin.  All those people gave him a terrible moodlet.

I know some of you are a little confused as to why the kids are going to school.  Apparently, my game was glitchy, so I packed up the family and house and moved to a new Sunset valley.  And TADA, they can now go to school.

Val gets singed at work copyOh dear!

Screenshot-16Umm, “slightly” singed?  *giggles* nice ‘do Val.

Val: I am not amused and I need a shower.

and then I got this message:

nan goes to michaels copyYes!  Go make friends/potential husbands!

Screenshot-17 Nan: What’s up with all the llamas?

Screenshot-18Michael: Uh, they’re fuzzy and cute.  What’s not to like?

Hmm, it kinda looks like Michael is suffering from Sims 2 Fish Lips.  Poor kid.  Perhaps I’ll fix it later if he make it into the legacy.

Screenshot-20Awww, here’s little Bella Bachelor.  She’s adorable!  I think I may have just found a girlfriend for Corbin.

Screenshot (2)Although some might think it awkward but Nan doesn’t hesitate to ask Simis for help with her homework.

Nan: Yes, I am a devious one.  muhahaha

Simis: You see, time dilation can arise from a relative velocity of motion between the observers.

Screenshot-2 (2)Nan: But I need help with Geography.

Simis: oh, then I’m afraid I can’t help you.  Geography is not my strongest subject.

Screenshot-3 (2)Lis: OMG!  Einstein’s Theory of Relativity?!  I’m going to need some help!

You should go see Simis.  He seems to know all about it.

Screenshot-4 (2)Oh hey.  I forgot Corbin’s birthday.  I’m awful!!

Corbin: Woo hoo!

Screenshot-5 (2)Lis: Yes!  Now I’m even closer to obtaining my rightful spot as heiress.

Corbin: Wooooo…

that’s quite some sparkly birthday hang time buddy.

Screenshot-7 (2)Oh No!  He’s chunky too!  And an exact clone of his Papa *le sigh*

Corbin is now an artistic, ambitious, clumsy loner.  Very nice.

Screenshot-9 (2)Lis:  Barf!  You’re cleaning skills leave a lot to be desired Mom.

Val:  You’re a terrible child!  Now go finish your homework.

Screenshot-15 (2)Lis: This stinks worse than the bathroom.  When I’m heiress, I’m totally banning homework.

This is not an election and you are not running for office.  Okay, maybe it is and you kinda are.  But I don’t think that’s a major voting point for the readers.

Screenshot-20 (2)Lis:  You know, we really ought to be working on our painting skills.

Screenshot-21Lis: ‘cause I have big ideas I tell you!  They’ll blow your mind!

Screenshot-23Lis: Did you check out Corbin’s last painting?  What a dork.  His perspective was soo off!

NAN:  HAHA, he’ll never be heir with skills like that!

Screenshot-25Val:  The fish just are not biting today.  I really need to be working on my gardening skills.

Well, you can’t fertilize your garden without the fish.  So keep on…

Screenshot-26Val:  Humph, this is going to take all day *grumble grumble*

and it did…

The next day Corbin went home with some girl that I don’t remember her name.  I wrote it all down in my notebook but then my dog Callie ate that particular page so I got nothin’.  Whoever she is, she did have a very fancy house.  I’m sure I could boot up my game and look but I’m too lazy, so suck on that.

Screenshot-27Unknown chick:  OMG!  I can’t believe Corbin Boudreaux is going home with me.  He’s soooo cute!

Corbin: Ugh, why is this chick insisting on sitting next to me?  God, I hate people.

Screenshot-28Oh look who came home with Nan today.  It’s Michael!

Michael:  I like your house.  The open wall plan on the second floor is very avant garde.

Screenshot-29Nan: So are you single?

Michael: Yep

Nan: Cool


Screenshot-30Michael:  So would you like to go hiking sometime?  I love being in nature.

Screenshot-32 Nan: Um, you mean The Outdoors?

Screenshot-31Nan:  Yeah, listen Michael.  I think you’re a great guy and all but clearly this isn’t going to work. But let’s still be friends.  So, is your Dad still married?


Nan: This is somehow your fault Amanda.  The Plague?!  SERIOUSLY?!

You’re so dramatic!

Oh hey look!  My simself had a baby boy named Leon!!!

simself has a baby boy leon copySimself, I approve!  I’m sure he’s named after Leon Kennedy of Resident Evil fame.

Screenshot-34I had to make Val go tend her garden again.  She’s never going to get promoted.  Why must she be so stubborn?!

Screenshot-37Corbin totally ignored fancy chick and opted to sit at her fancy dining room table and read about inventing.  She didn’t seem to mind so whatever. Screenshot-39Synchronized thinking

OMG! Zoey and Francis had a baby boy.

francis and zoey have a baby copyOf course, this means nothing if you’re not familiar with Left 4 Dead.  And if you don’t play it then you suck.  But seriously, go buy it now.  You’ll thank me later.

Any who…

Screenshot-50Gordon visited the local library to beef up his cooking skills *haha I made a punny*

Poor Stiles.  He looks a little disturbed.  Perhaps he’s intimidated by Gordon’s smexyness?

After coming home from  the library Gordon showed off his fancy cookin’ skillz.  (I spelled skillz with a z ‘cause that’s how awesome his skillz are.  I’m just sayin’)

Screenshot-51 Screenshot-52 Screenshot-53 Screenshot-55 Screenshot-56 Screenshot-58I mean, he’s like the Neo of cooking!  AMAZING!!!

The next day while the kids were at school I noticed that Corbin had a positive moodlet.  Hmmm, something’s going on ‘cause he hates crowds.  So I  decided to take a look.  Yeah, I’m a regular Nancy Drew.

Screenshot-59And the kids are playing on the playground.  NOT skipping school but I guess they just didn’t go back to class after recess maybe?  But Lis and Nan were on the jungle gym chatting about art and stuff.  And Corbin (you can barely see him over there on the left)  was sliding down the slide.

And then the bell rang.

Screenshot-60 She’s so cute!  Oh, btw, I totally used Nraas to make her thinner  She was spending way too much time at the gym and I’m an instant gratification kind of girl.  You got a problem with that? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Screenshot-61Corbin:  I got to work on mah fitness too!  And get a job.  It’s very important to me.

And while he was jogging I noticed the fish were incredibly active.

Screenshot-62Check out some serious action shots.  Yeah, i go mad skillz too.  lol

Screenshot-63Screenshot-64Screenshot-65Lis rolled a wish to learn a guitar skill.  Luckily, Val and Gordon have been making some decent simoleons so I gladly granted her wish.

Screenshot-66Screenshot-67Lis: I shall express my teen angst through song and melody.

Screenshot-68Nan, in the meantime, was expressing her teen angst through art. Screenshot-69Nan:  it seems to be missing something.  But what?

Screenshot-71Corbin: I love books!  Maybe they’re hiring.

And indeed they were.  So now our little ambitious sim has a job.  Yes, I’m very proud.

Screenshot-72Corbin:  Getting a job makes me hungry.  Who’s that?!  He’s intoxicating.


Screenshot-74I don’t know who she is.  Go find out.  It looks like she’s got romance on her mind.

Screenshot-76Corbin: I think i will!  I mean, it’s only one person right?  I can do this.

GO Corbin GO!

Screenshot-77Meet Jamie Jolina.  A little heavy handed on the makeup but none the less very pretty.

Screenshot-78Corbin: So, do you enjoy coming to the park a lot?

Jamie:  Did I leave my iron on?

Screenshot-79 Corbin worked some of his Boudreaux magic and found out that Jamie is a Trauma Surgeon.  Another possible spouse added to the list 😉

Jamie had to go to work shortly after they’re introduction so I made Corbin go to the theatre to make more friends even though he didn’t want to.  And look who he found….my simself!

Screenshot-81 Amanda: Why am I here and not at home with my new baby?

Screenshot-83Amanda:  Girls like to kiss, kiddo.  Remember that, it’ll come in handy in the future.

Corbin:  This seems inappropriate.  Stranger Danger!

Screenshot-84Corbin: So what do you do for a living?

Amanda: I’m a Kitchen Scullion.

Um, eww….

Screenshot-85Corbin:  Cool, my Dad use to do that job.  I just got a job at the bookstore.

Amanda: Really?  My LTW is to be a published author.  Why am I not working at the bookstore?  Stupid EA.

Back at the house, Nan was putting the finishing touches on her painting.

Screenshot-86Nan:  Humph, I don’t like it.

I’m sure it’s fine.  Let’s take a look…

Screenshot-89Um, yeah.  Let’s sell this one shall we?

Nan: Good idea.

Now for some SIM PORN!!

Screenshot-90Hello Gordon’s fine bum!

Screenshot-91The Twins do their best ABBA impression.

Screenshot-93Gordon: Can you believe you mother hasn’t fixed that computer yet?  I need my game fix.

Screenshot-94Nan: Papa!  You have got some serious nose hair!

And this was his response:

Screenshot-96Screenshot-97HA HA!  He’s so charming.

I couldn’t decide which one I like more so I posted them both.

Screenshot-98 Nan:  Moose Ears!  LOL

And, dear readers, I leave you on that note.  It’s almost midnight and I’m going to struggle to get up for work tomorrow as it is.

Next time, the kids FINALLY grow up into Young Adults.  And I FINALLY post an Heir/ess poll.

    Wow, how did all three kids grow up chunky when their parents (especially Gordon) are so fit? Though I do love how Sims can work out for a few hours and go skinny, wish that was the same in RL *sigh*
    Also? Gordon, keep walking around the house in your undies, we don’t mind!
