THE HILLS ARE ALIVE WITH THE SOUNDS OF SIMLISH

DEAR SIMS PLEASE REGURGITATE MY HEAD ONE OF THESE DAYS


I WILL TAKE THE REST OF THIS ENTRY OUT OF CAPSLOCK TO SPARE YOUR EYES

BUT IMAGINE IT'S ALL IN CAPSLOCK

Because

-I made a Sound of Music family

-I made Maria and Liesl and Friedrich and Brigitta and Marta and Gretl

-I didn't make Kurt and Luisa because they bore me

-And I didn't make the Captain because he annoys me

-I wanted to make some nuns but I don't have a nun's habit

-But anyway

-The point is

-Liesl is the only teenager in the neighborhood apart from Friedrich, because I forgot to make Rolf, but she has a romance aspiration, so she has been hitting on Maureen from Rent

-I gotta make an Into the Woods household and add Jack of beanstalk fame to the neighborhood, because I do not wish Maureen to be the trial case for determining what the statutory rape laws look like in Simland

-And Maria left Gretl sitting on the sidewalk right next to the street all alone while she went inside to play SSX3, and what's up with that?

-And all of the Rent people are swarming our house and Maria really wants to flirt with Collins but I am not letting her flirt with anyone until Miss Hannigan comes over

-Though I still maintain that Miss Hannigan/Velma Kelly is the best pairing ever

-But the essential point here is that even though she lives halfway across the neighborhood, in the middle of the game, Elphaba ran pell-mell into the house, punched Friedrich in the face three times, and then hightailed it out the door and off the property so fast no one could even greet her

-And I do not understand Elphaba's compulsion to punch everyone who ever moves into the neighborhood

-But at least the Sound of Music people had no garden gnomes to steal

-And I seriously need to be doing copyediting

-And oh shit

Sims are so much fun, aren't they? Especially when they start coming up with relationships and things you never would have expected...like, I made Firefly Sims, and...Simon somehow ended up falling in love with Jayne. While still married to, and very much in love with, Kaylee. And he doesn't even have a Romance aspiration.

And yeah, Zeus randomly ran into the Tam household (Simon, Kaylee, and teenager!River, who I had to make their daughter 'cause you can't make a teenager the sibling of an adult, apparently) completely uninvited, shoved River, and ran out again while she was waving her arms and screaming at him. It was sort of befuddling.

I suppose I could move Stephanie March in in Talk Radio and have her get swanked up in Alex duds from time to time.

I KNOW I KNOW I NEED TO PLAY MORE MARCYS AND JILLIES. I AM JUST ON A KIDS' MOVIES STREAK RIGHT NOW.

Normally when people get punched it's cos the sim was using the telescope and spying on the punching sim. If you watch them, you'll see the little thought bubble and the sim reacting to what they're spying on.

I love Maxis.

OH IS THAT WHY. Yeah, Friedrich was using the telescope earlier. THAT'S SO WEIRD. No wonder he didn't have a skill point accruing overtop his head - he wasn't studying, he was spying!

He better not have been, they have a very nice lawn and I don't want him spoiling it.

She NEEDS therapy. But the only therapy you get in Sims is when something horrible happens that plummets your aspiration meter way down into the red. At that point a guy called Therapist falls from the ceiling, and he talks to you soothingly for a bit, but then he hypnotizes you with a mirror and you cluck like a chicken. I'm not sure, but I don't think he's licensed.

I think it kinda suits her. I mean, if she just let go of her detachment for a bit, punching everyone would totally be Elphie's bag.
