8, in the Peter House:
An elder Leona, a world-famous Celebrity Chef, serenely dabbles in the
The Peter House is slowly getting buggy. In the back yard, most
animations take place a few squares from the object being interacted
with. Also, something in the yard keeps making people leap in
surprise, though the invisible object they're reacting to is different
each time. Here, Ashley is shocked by... a card?
...and Charlie Gray trims hedges that are actually way over by the
cemetery moat. I wish I could do my gardening by remote control!
This is Maxine, the daughter of Meghan Brokaw and Jeff Langerak.
She looks a bit like her dad, including
having huge earlobes that hopefully she'll grow into. Jeff and
Meghan are engaged but are holding off on a wedding because, you know,
Maxine Brokaw: 58649 = 32
What was I saying about Romance Sims? And what *is* it with these
gardeners?! And yes, there is a baby, and his name is Logan.
Meanwhile, Kelly grows up and immediately moves the heck out of this
crazy house. She takes her mom Ashley with her, because Ashley
cries non-stop and I was getting tired of hearing it (I have trouble
keeping Pleasure Sims happy).
Meghan tries to talk Kelly into staying, mostly because Meghan needs a
full-time babysitter. Kelly conceals her laughter.
So, I bought Kelly and Ashley a tiny house in Pleasantview, and they
started to get to know the neighbors. Kelly, a Family Sim, was in
a hurry to get pregnant, so she called the Matchmaker and paid full
price for a date. Imagine her surprise (and mine!) when Mortimer
Goth fell from the sky!
The date did not go well.
I'm skeptical of this whole Matchmaker thing. Kelly was back at
square one, plus she had this red-sweatered jerk stealing her paper and
knocking over her trashcan. She soon struck up a friendship with
Ivy Copur, and we'll see where it leads...
Maxine plays with Sims of her own
Dramatic pinball shot... oooooh
Meghan picks a fight with the woman from the restaurant
Oh, the irony! The ageing-up Logan sucks Kacper's life force.
Meghan is proud of her creation, which appears to be burning yellow
fabric with slices of sausage.
Logan as a child
Maxine is a totally hot teen. She has learned the secret to
gourmet cooking: sprinkle salt and pepper on everything.
Leona sits quietly and misses Kacper. Or maybe I was just trying
to get an artsy picture.
Meghan talked fiance Jeff Langerak (Maxine's dad) into moving in; the
wedding may or may not ever happen. Hopefully the squinty eyes
will not reemerge in the next generation!
A few days later, we moved Jeff out. He was boring. :P
A random glitch messed up Maxine's custom skin, or maybe she just
likes to study until she's blue in the (floating)face? I had to
recolor her to a Maxis default and lose the "light Asian" tone that
suited her so well. Sigh.
Another glitch: boyfriend Sean Davison, after I cheated him into a new
hairstyle, sort of... disappeared.
Oh, good, he's back! But no lightning bolts. Sorry,
How about this guy for whom Maxine has two lightning bolts? "Did
you SEE his nose??" Yeah, sorry.
Now, *this* guy... under all that hair and green glass, does a
Legacy-worthy genome lurk?
As is shown by this entirely non-suggestive photo, yes, yes it does
The wedding of Maxine Brokaw and Hayden Midlock was an informal affair
in the backyard of the Peter House.
Hayden celebrated by coughing up a lung.
The guest list: Kelly Brokaw, Samuel Brokaw, Ashley Brokaw, Alex
Brokaw, Logan Brokaw, Vincent Brokaw, and Eliza Brokaw. (Leona's in the
cemetery - I totally don't remember when she died.) Meghan must
be off taking care of the baby. More on the baby later.
Nothing says "love" like whacking your new spouse with a pillow.
A picturesque moment as we fade out on Generation 8 - pillow fights,
bonfires, ghosts, and a hot tub.
