Cancelled until Further Notice

My computer can’t play TS3 anymore, so until I get a new one, I’m back playing TS2 (and loving it). Check out the new Bachelor challenge and submit a contestant!

The Next Bachelorette is…

So sorry about the delay! Last week was a mess…guests were coming out, big party to prepare for, and I got a job interview thrown in the middle of it. Chaos!

We have a definitive winner of the polls…with 6 of the 11 votes (so just over 50%…yay!).

The next step of the challenge will be to contact the person who submitted our new Bachelorette to make sure she is on board with helping me. She will help make some of the initial decisions, as well as give me more details about our Bachelorette.

After that, I will need to write up the logistics of the challenge…how many contestants and how many will get eliminated each round.

And now for our winner….

drumroll please….

After we decide, I will begin posting more information about how to submit a contestant for the next round!

What Happened to Leslie?

Since only Sheila, Nathan, and Leslie moved to the new neighborhood, Leslie is the only contestant (so far) that has been kicked out on her own. So, I decided to check in on Leslie to see how life had been treating her since she left the show heartbroken.

When I found her, she was still in the prom-meets-bridesmaid dress that she showed up in to Sheila & Nathan’s wedding. However, she was at the laundromat- so perhaps she just wears this when she runs out of clothes?

I followed her back to her new place, which is a cute little house that she occupies by herself- no roommate. Oh…odd thing was…she *has* a washer and dryer at home…and they weren’t broken. So was she just looking to make some friends at the laundromat?

Despite not being particularly artistic, or needing any skills in that area for her job, Leslie seems to have an interest in the arts. She wishes to take a class in painting, and she owns a string bass (she already owned it when I went to check on her…I’m not exactly sure how such an expensive purchase was acquired).

Leslie met one of her neighbor- a friendly old woman, who seems to be Leslie’s only friend in this new neighborhood.

Since she’s been on her own she has acquired a “boyfriend”…one Justin Kayes. He is apparently some genius computer whiz guy…but he’s kind of a jerk. They went on one date, and it did not go very well. She has a better relationship with her car (seriously, she considers it a “good friend”…it is affectionately called the Sloppy Jalopy) than Justin. He never stops by, calls, or shows an interest.

To make ends meet, she is pursuing a life of crime…she works with some seedy folks, but she doesn’t consider any of them “friends”. I’m not exactly sure she is suited for a life of crime though…she has made no career progress…even after I spent a week managing things for her. A major factor is her difficulty in building the athletic skill- she is clumsy…so her and working out don’t go well together.

 Long hours at work, followed by long hours at the gym, and having a very poor quality mattress, means Leslie takes frequent naps.

She has no television or computer and no one to talk with, but she still manages to keep herself entertained.

The nice old lady invites her to a formal get-together she is having.

Leslie tries to make some new friends, but she isn’t meeting the friendliest people.

Back home…the sink is now leaking. It seems like things break around here on  a daily basis, but Leslie has no money to buy new ones.

Of course, she can improve her house by taken home items stolen from work…like this soap dispenser…

Just when you think things can’t get any worse….you get arrested.

After spending a night in jail, Leslie thinks she needs to add to her (imaginary) tough-girl persona by getting another tatoo!

Then it’s back to the gym!

After the Wedding

Last Time: Sheila and Nathan finally managed to have a wedding. So what happens now?

Sheila has decided to pursue her passion for cooking a little more intensely, perhaps she can make some cash on the side from selling her dishes?

Ever since the world’s been updated, trips outside SimNation have not been going well for Sims. SimNews has reported who neighborhoods have had to be eliminated due to glitches. Sheila and Nathan decide that it is best not to spend all their money on a romantic honeymoon, as was their plan, given the current risks. Instead, they add a new addition on to the house so that they can build a nursery.

Sheila is expecting!

The area that once was their bedroom, is now a nice den with plenty of room for a computer desk and television.

 

Off the new den is a nursery!

Along with their new bedroom.

Anxiously awaiting the arrival of the baby!

And the day has finally arrived! Off to the hospital we go!

Welcome to the world Fynn! In the world of the Sims, children are born with certain characteristics, and they run tests at the hospital to determine some of these characteristics before the child comes home. So we know:

– The someday his favorite food will be peanut butter and jelly sandwiches

– That his favorite color is yellow

– He prefers pop music

– He is a couch potato and will prefer chilling on the couch playing tv and video games

– He is a genius, and will be able to read and pick up new skills faster than most other sims

Almost there! (Another Bachelorette Poll!)

We are coming close to deciding who the next Bachelorette will be! Just two more polls!

The winner will have to answer more questions about their Bachelorette, as we will be following the Bachelorette around for one week to learn more about her!

If a Sim you have submitted is in this poll….you are encouraged to send me an e-mail with more info or reasons why your Sims should be the next Bachelorette. I will update this post to include that information!

This poll will put Evelyn, the winner of all the previous polls, up against Becca, Kat and Amber…3 ladies who made it to the final rounds!

The winner of that poll will be pitted against Maisy-Jo and Leslie, the two runners-up!
