poor mariah

Mariah: Poor thing.

Mikelle: That’s what you get for treating a kid like an adult.

Mariah: Mind your business Mikelle. Do you always have to make a comment? God shutup!

Joslyn: You have no right to call her on anything, you and Selena are the queens of co signing.

Selena: I’m not even a part of this but if you want I’ll make it my business cuz I’m tired of the both you.

Naomi: Ladies!

Maliah: What I don’t understand is how Skylar’s gonna be miss perfect and can’t handle corrections? Ok you messed up, but did you die?

Ella: Maliah shut your mouth about my kid!! I’m not gonna tell you again!

Maliah: She’s interrupting the whole class and we’re trying to get it tight, there ain’t time for crocodile tears.

Ella: She’s a child, she’s stressed, let her cry!

Maliah: Ain’t no excuse ma! She can’t handle the heat, get out the studio.

Ella: I am so f*cking sick of your constant bullsh*t!  I can’t do this, not with her or any of those evil b*tches. Excuse my language! See this environment is not healthy for any of us. Naomi you have to pick right now, me or her?

Naomi: Don’t ask me to do that, please not again, not this week

Ella: Skylar get your stuff! We’re leaving.

Alien Update: Getting Old Part 2

I actually had more to post in last nights update but the post was getting too long. Glad I waited cause I have even more to report now!

So when we last left our Alien family, it was just Pamina and Mariah left in the house. Pamina had just hooked up with her new boyfriend, and Mariah was climbing the career ladder.

As her family was busy pairing off, Mariah was busy getting older. In fact, she hit a mid life crisis.

Her only midlife crisis wish was to move, so I packed her and Pamina up and moved them into a split level I built down the street from her brothers. It was my first try using CFE in build mode and I think it turned out real cute!

Apparently this lot was completely ideal for Aliens to visit, because in spite of going several generations without seeing any land, TWO showed up to visit this house in as many weeks.

If only I had this luck when I was streaming! It also seems like Shane somehow ended up with a Space Ship, because he lives nearby and I often hear ship noises when he goes to and from work. Huh.

While Mariah was working toward her life goal of becoming an Astronaut (which in the Sims is Military Career Rank 10 for some reason) and mingling with her new Alien friends, Pamina was having fun going on dates with a rapidly aging Julien.

Canoodling at the cemetery

After Julien spent the night, one morning Pamina was invited to a party. Little did she know this cuddle would be her last.

A quick reflection on Pamina’s life. She had a rushed childhood (because I had to get ready for the stream I shortened the days she could remain a child) and had a rocky romantic life. But she did fulfill her life goal of becoming a World Renowned Surgeon, and raised three very successful Alien children all by herself. Though she wasn’t the nicest person, she was loved for her hardworking attitude and selflessness, and her death left poor Mariah heartbroken. RIP Pamina.

I was worried Mariah would be lonely living in a big house all by herself, so when she stopped by Shane’s house, I had her adopt one of his dog’s puppies. This little furball’s name is Chun, and she’s a mutt. Dogs are really cute in the Sims 3! I’m surprised, cats are really weird looking. And also dogs seem a lot easier to take care of. Somehow cats are way needier and have a much more demanding social need, which seems completely reversed from reality. Oh well.

Since I am still doing a legacy challenge, there are certain tasks each generation must complete. Mariah is my heir, so her goal is to a) Reach level 10 of the military career, and b) Marry one of her co-workers once she does. At this point Mariah was level 9, so since she was getting close, I invited her only eligible male co-worker over to see if I could get them moving along. Well…

That didn’t go so well. At this point I was at kind of a loss for what to do. Unfortunately since this is a legacy challenge, I have to have her marry a guy so that they can reproduce. Luckily at just the right moment, an ex-paparazzo joined the military career, Jayme. This guy used to hang around their house and basically stalk them throughout their childhood, so I wasn’t thrilled with the idea of Mariah hooking up with him. But it was slim pickings as her only other male co-worker was Shane, so he’ll have to do.

Things went well, but I didn’t want to formally get them together until she hit level 10. It just so happened that she did the very next day, so I hurriedly got them married.

Upon moving him in, I discovered that Jayme is 130 days old, which is WAY older than any of my sims have naturally lived. I was pretty concerned that he’d drop dead before he’d have a chance to make any babies, so I got Mariah the Fertility Treatment lifetime reward and got them at it.

Bingo, preggers.

Meanwhile Chun grew up into an adult dog and promptly started learning all sorts of tricks. 

Now that it was a guarantee that they’d have at least one baby, I went ahead and got Jayme going on his lifetime wish, which was to become a lifeguard and rescue 50 people. There’s no way he’s doing it before he kicks the bucket but eh why not try. So he quit his low level military career and started patrolling the beach.

And after his third day on the job, Mariah went into labor! So he rushed to the hospital, and the two of them came home with twin girls, Tanya and Camille.

It’ll be interesting to see what these two are like as teenagers since they’re only 25% Alien. They have olive green skin.

That’s all for now! I may play some more later today but I may go swimming instead. Both sound pretty appealing :)
