Round 9- Broke - House 4

Welcome back to the Broke household. Residing here are Remington Broke (widow of Brandi) their daughter Eliza and her husband Adam (Pleasant- son of Alexander Goth & Angela Pleasant) and one of Remington's twin alien sons, Jules who has graduated college and moved back home, plus various dogs.
Remington wished to get a skill, see a ghost, flirt and play with Nina Caliente.
Eliza wished to have a party, play with, talk to and entertain a sim and make friends with Adriana the waitress and have 30 best friends. She bought Priya Ramaswami home from work and fulfilled several wishes.
Adam wished to call someone over, talk, play and entertain them, meet someone new and be best friends with Crystal. Bigfoot was called over and instantly fulfilled 4 of these wishes.
Jules wished to have 1st woohoo, ask Dagmar (post lady) on a date, tell a joke, inside joke, swim and become a witch.
Jules enjoyed a fun date with Dagmar at the diner.
As soon as he'd got home she phoned and asked him on a second date. They went to the Crypt 'O Nightclub but I have no idea why she turned up in a Llama costume!
Their second date ended up back at his place and resulted in Jules fulfilling his 'have first woohoo' wish.
After several days Eliza and Adam found the Culinary career and reached the top. 
Jules was having more luck with his love life than his job when a chance card resulted in him being fired.
He thought accepting an invitation to go downtown would cheer him up but he got zapped by lightning whilst in the hot tub and just wanted to go home.
The outing did at least improve his social enough to look for and find the Architecture job again (for his LTW).
Remington got a nice boost in aspiration points when he saw the ghost of his dead wife Brandi.
He also added very nicely to the family funds with a chance card from his job in the Medical profession.
This family are definitely not 'Broke' anymore.
Jules fulfilled his LTW by reaching the top of his Architecture career.
He had a wish to learn physiology.
and had another date with Dagmar.  Weird how she keeps turning up in the costume.
In the early hours of Friday morning Eliza got a surprise of her own.
Adam took over training of the dogs and decided to introduce some 'wolf' to the breeding pool.
There haven't been any puppies so far this week but hopefully next week we may see some.
On Saturday and aged 71 Remington decided to retire. Now he can enjoy the home, garden and his pets again with the remaining time he has left. (Not much by the look of his bar).
Adam is busy making best friends and catching up with family members.
Brandi comes out to haunt.
No-one gets much sleep.
Eliza tends to the garden. She's always in the zone.
The dogs have fun and get clean playing in the water wiggler. Their names elude me at the moment but one of them became an elder dog during the day.
The early hours of Sunday see everyone rush into Eliza's room to witness the birth of the next generation Broke.
It's a boy- welcome to little Barnabas Broke.
After everyone got some sleep and a small routine was established Remington invited his relatives over. (Of course they are not his blood relatives). Carter Burb was Brandi's youngest (and unborn at the start of the game), he came over with his wife Lucy (Burb) and their children Donny, Bradley and Lowry). A good afternoon was had by all.
Remington wished to stargaze (his hobby), earn money, play with and command the dogs.
Eliza-worked on getting her LTW (Celebrity Chef) this week- job didn't come up until quite late in the week but she reached the top on the first day thanks to her college degree. She also brought Priya home several times this week and fulfilled her 'have 30 best friends' wish when Priya became her 30th!
Adam- same as Eliza with the job, he'd also reached the top of the Education career whilst waiting for the Culinary career to come up. He made friends, earned money and trained the dogs. Adam is a romance sim but I'm keeping him reigned in- his new LTW is to have 20 lovers but I doubt that will happen. We will see.
Jules- Jules had a fun week, I decided to move him back home as his brother Verne branched off to his own place.  He dated Dagmar several times, got fired and re-hired. He's shown no wishes to get engaged or married as yet. Maybe next time?
No puppies this week but hopefully the Leader of the Pack will have worked his magic for next week.

Round 9- Nina Caliente- House 3a

Welcome back to Nina's house.
Nina's initial wishes are to be friends with Brie Bruenig, resurrect her brother-in-law Magnus Caliente, gain a skill and work out.
The first thing Nina gets is inheritance from her friend Brandi Broke and brother-in-law Magnus.
Nina decides to go for a work out, she needs to be in great shape for her lifestyle!
She also gained her skill. As she's got older Nina loves to watch the cookery channel.
Hunky maid Amin helps Nina with one of her daily wishes when they have a pillow fight. (He'll have to clean up the feathers of course). :D
Since losing her son Rico in the college dorm fire Nina is now the Master of Rico's little dog, Jake.
Nina enjoys getting to know her remaining relatives and invited her nephew Mario over who brought along her great-niece Maria.
Nina's next wish was to win a dance contest. She was up against townie Amin Sims, the Dance Instructor and newlywed and vampire Regina Burb (married to Bradley Burb).
Nina won the contest. She is very good friends with the DJ Adam, perhaps that swayed his decision? ;)
ok, so she was very good friends with him, but he caught her out when she dated Bruce, a townie. It's funny how when not in his DJ gear he has a different hairstyle.
It wasn't just Adam that was mad with Nina either. The Count was also at the community lot and gave Nina an ear bashing.
Here's something funny- Bruce came to deliver a gift for the great date he and Nina shared whilst Adam came to steal Nina's newspaper!
oh yay, another piano. (Nina will sell it for funds). :D
It always makes me chuckle when Nina goes off to work as it coincides with the arrival of the maid and mailman, both of whom are Nina's lovers and think very highly of her.
Nina earned 50K from a chance card during this shift.
She decided to celebrate with college guy Jess. He must've come home with her son one time or she met him at another resident's party.
Unfortunately the Count was walking by to kick over Nina's trash can when he ran right into the house as Nina and Jess were getting 'friendly'...
So we have another autonomously turned college Vampire!
After Jess left Nina had to use the combination of smart glasses/smooth talk to get the Count to stop being furious. It worked. ;)
After work the next day Nina met Neil Cameron and invited him in for a date. (She is trying to get 50 1st dates as a new challenge).
She was later invited on an outing by Opal, a college student. Randy London also came along as well as a couple of Nina's ex lovers...
It didn't take long for a fight to start, Joe Carr and Komei Tellerman had never liked each other anyway.
Joe won the fight and Nina decided to end the outing.
It must've been good though as Randy later dropped off a little gift.
Nina's new friend for the day was Talin, a walkby townie.
Of course Nina invited him on a date and they were best friends before they knew it.
On Friday Nina retired. She was a couple of 'years' older than my usual '70' age for retirement but I wanted her to have her full week at work.
She celebrated by having a date with the next walkby, Waylon. She befriended him using her trusty voodoo doll.
On Saturday Nina wished to head to her holiday villa.
She just remembered to hire a nanny to take care of Jake before she left!
Nina's olive skin isn't what it used to be and she got quite burnt this time.
She made some new friends,
and reinforced some old friendships.
Nina also found a couple of secrets that she missed on her previous trips.
and learnt a new skill in fire dancing.
She even wanted to catch some fireflies to light up her porch before she headed home.
Her first night  back saw her house being broken into by Amin the burglar.  It's a shame that a dog residing in the house can't scare away a burglar isn't it? That would make for entertaining viewing, :)
Of course Nina was mad with Amin but spent the day on the phone to him until he could be invited over...
Well Nina's never one to miss an opportunity is she?!
Summary,  a usual fun week at Nina's. Her wants were very much for dating, meeting someone new and going on the vacation but all others were fulfilled such as skilling, working out, swimming and even training Jake up in a skill.
Nina has had 42 dates so far and is now 75 years old. I wonder if she'll make the big 50?  Will anyone 'inherit' Nina's home? I've been keeping her friendships up with her remaining family members just in case.
Next up we're off to The Broke's!
