Caliente- Dina, Round 10, House 3

Welcome back to Dina's house. Of course Dina is no longer with us, nor is her husband Magnus but their offspring remain.
 
This was the house Dina moved to after her and Nina went their separate ways back in round 1. Let's see who remains of her relatives.
 
Eldest son and head of the household Vito. He just became an elder watched on by his wife, former college student Monica Bratford.
 
Dina also had twins, Mario and his (eternally teenaged) sister Arianna.
Arianna- "Who took my bed?"
 
"Was it you brother?!"
 
"Or you, big brother?!"
 
"Or maybe it was you?!"
 
Also living here are Vito & Monica's children, Maria and Eduardo.
They are about to have birthdays...
 
Maria rolled to be a Family Sim with a lifetime want to become Captain Hero.
 
Eduardo's wishes on growing up were to get an A+, make a friend, jump rope and buy a toy dog. (The first time I've ever had that wish roll up!).
 
"This is the best birthday ever! Welcome to the house little Goofy".
 
Of course it's usually left to the adults to do the not fun jobs such as actually feeding the pet.
 
...and cleaning out it's pen.
 
There are other pets here too, Eliza enjoys watching 'pet rescue' on tv.
 
When she's not having kittens that is. Her mate Darcy doesn't care to watch the birth of his kitten William.
 
Romance Sim Mario is always getting invited out and what better way to boost friendships than with a tale of the Far East?
 
Or a good barbecue among friends,
 
Followed by the old standby of public woohoo!
 
Not content with one lady, this Romancer put the wishing well to good use,
 
and got date,
 
after date.
 
Of course it wouldn't have been that way had Jordan the Diva wanted to marry him,
 
But after several dates and outings early in the week neither rolled the wish to become betrothed and so it was not meant to be.
 
 
He's a good Uncle though and enjoys spending time with his nephew.
 
Even teaching him some new skills.
 
Meanwhile Maria is very close to her Aunt Nina. I think she's hoping to inherit her Aunt's house.
 
She's close to her little brother too and helped him with his homework.
 
Because their Mother was pregnant again and eating the contents of the fridge.
Maria- "eww it's just gross for our Mum to be having a baby!"
Eduardo- "Where do babies come from...?"
 
As Maria got older and took a look at her own aspiration she realised she too might be wanting babies but settled first in finding a partner.
She thought Mardy Goth was cute.
 
But liked one of the Oldie-Hanby twins more! Charlie I think this is.
 
On Thursday Monica had a second daughter, Elsa.
 
Dina came out to haunt.
 
So did Magnus and Midnight.
 
Poor Eduardo made a puddle.
"It was the dog!"
'mmm'kay!'
and passed out before he could reach his bed.
 
Magnus and Midnight play even in death.
 
Liza had a second kitten this week called Wilma.
 
Little Elsa became a toddler on Sunday and enjoys spending time with her Daddy.
 
While Mario's love life gets ever more complicated!
 
 
Summary-
 
      Always a fun week at this Caliente home.
 
I only got one 'Goofy is starving- you'd better feed him' message which I thought was pretty good considering I forgot about him most of the time. I can see the toy dog would be quite good in an apartment or college where the space is more confined.
 
The kitties were all sent off for adoption ready for the next time someone rolls a 'raise 20' wish.
 
Ending wishes,
 
Vito- see rain, become a witch, talk to Fuller Goth and Samantha Goth, go swimming and buy a highchair.
 
Monica- Maria gets a scholarship, go hiking, earn 100K, blog, catch bugs, birdwatch.
 
Mario- Have public woohoo with 3 different sims, be best friends with Donny Burb, bff's with Eduardo and Marco Lothario.
 
Maria- Be bff's with Eduardo & Aunt Nina, best friends with Fuller Goth, Go to College.
 
Eduardo- Get an A+, be bff's with Mario & Maria, gain 8th body skill point.
 
Elsa- Grow up well, be played with, talked to and tickled by Monica.

Goth- Round 10- House 2

Welcome back to The Goth household wherein reside;
 
 
Hans Goth, son of Cassandra & Nicholas Goth. 
Initial wishes- See my son Morgan gets scholarship, play with and entertain a new sim I meet, hustle pool and see my youngest son Mardy get an A+.
 
Ivy Goth, wife of Hans and mother to Wednesday, Fuller, Morgan and Mardy.
Initial Wishes- Talk to someone, see a ghost, earn some cash and see Mardy get an A+.
 
Wednesday Goth.
Now I'm home from college I want to get a job either in Politics, Music or Education (even though my LTW is to become a City Planner), meet someone new, entertain them and make friends with my zombie associate Erin Wren.
 
Juan Lothario- fiancé of Wednesday- son of Don and Kaylynn Lothario.
I want to hustle pool, work out, meet someone new and entertain them. Perhaps get a job in Dance or making coffee. Heh- my LTW is to become a Professional Party Guest so I'm going to look out for the Slacker career. 
 
Morgan Goth.
I want to sneak out with my buddy Noah Pleasant, go to college, go steady with someone and entertain someone.
 
Mardy Goth- I want to talk to Marco Lothario- Juan's twin brother. I also want to meet someone new, earn a skill point and make best friends with Graham Gregory.
 
Campbell Goth- son of Cassandra & Nicholas Goth and twin to Hans.
I want to sell a masterpiece, play with and entertain a sim and be friends with Marco Lothario.
 
Pluto Goth- alien offspring of Campbell.
I want to learn to go on the potty, then have my dad talk to, play with and snuggle me.
 
Here we are at the Goth Manor. I don't know why I have a tree on fire- it's a permanent thing until I go into buy mode and when I go live again it's not on fire until I leave the lot and come back.
It adds to the mystery of the Manor I suppose.
 
Juan got lucky and found the job as a Slacker. It really will suit his lazy personality. His fiancée Wednesday also found the job of her dreams in the Architectural career.
 
With the house needing more rooms I added a basement and raided the closest for more appropriate clothing.
 
Ivy was happy to have her daughter back at home.
 
Lots of wishes were fulfilled when Mardy got his first A+.
 
After teaching his son potty training Campbell soon became his best friend.
 
Morgan was having such a fun night out with his friend Noah until the police turned up to bust him.
 
He got into such trouble with his parents but they forgave him when he got his final scholarship and headed to college.
 
Juan, the prankster enjoyed meeting the members of his fiancée's family.
 
 
Pluto entered childhood but was unimpressed with his new hairstyle.
 
He did love the new pirate outfit he got as a gift though.
His brother Mardy enjoys talking weather related issues with Tulip Terrano.
 
Regardless of aspiration all the Goth's seem to enjoy learning new things.
 
Since the installation of the basement the original ghosts have started coming into the house.
 
Its not that funny.
 
No-one is getting much sleep.
 
On the plus side we never need a maid.
 
Having her degree helped Wednesday reach her LTW really quickly. Her next LTW is to reach her Golden Anniversary and as that is a long way off she decides to start a family as soon as possible.
 
She soon got pregnant and treated herself to a new hairstyle.
 
Juan too earned his LTW and could look forward to a lifetime of even more slacking.
 
Campbell had a mad wish to get engaged during a date with Jessie from college.
 
I'm not sure why Adam Broke (nee Pleasant) is unhappy about the engagement. Perhaps he dated Jessie whilst in college? He's a happily married man now though.
  
 Campbell soon forgot he was engaged and wished to go out with another of his regular dates.
 
Juan missed his old college buddy Nova Goth and invited him on an outing.
 
They went to Baliwood Star Lanes. (if it looks familiar it's from the Sims Life Stories).
 
Juan won the bowling match with his superior striking power.
 
Hans got old.
 
He wasn't so thrilled about looking old though!
 
Ivy too- although she kept her dark hair as I don't have the grey version. :D
 
hmmm, when Hans & his wife Ivy were canoodling Juan suddenly came in and got very upset about it.
 
I'm not sure that's the best way to treat a potential father-in-law.
 
Thankfully baby boy Gale made an appearance to pause the silliness.
 
Juan wasn't too thrilled at the idea of changing nappies so handed Gale to Ivy.
 
Who then handed him to Campbell.
 
But Campbell was going out with a bunch of friends- one of whom included Nina Caliente- oh dear, I can spot at least 3 lovers of hers in this picture.
 
The party was going great until one of Nina's lovers made a grab for her right in front of Campbell- who is also a lover of Nina's.
 
Also in the party were Sinjin the townie and Guy Wrightly-who were not happy at the going's on. 
There was a lot of slapping.
 
 
and the outing went downhill faster than Franz Klammer.
 
Juan was perhaps enjoying too leisurely a life and got a demotion from a chance card.
 
It's a double celebration party,
 
Mardy became a teenager and rolled to be a Romance sim.
 
He loves his new look!
 
His Uncle Campbell got old.
 
He and his twin share their life stories as the winter begins.
 
The week ends with little Gale becoming a toddler.
 
In amongst all the partying at least one person in this family knows how to take life seriously.
 
oh... maybe two!



Summary,
 
As always with big families it was an action packed week.

Hans, Ivy and Campbell have all been perma-platinum for some time and were only controlled a little. Campbell more so for his many outings and dates.
 
Campbell also aged a few days later than his twin as he didn't go to college and so stayed a teen a little longer than his sibling.
 
Morgan went off to college where he joins the Lothario sister's et al and we'll catch up with them soon.
 
Cassandra & Juan are also both perma-plat. I totally forgot about Juan's mother Kaylynn's wish to see 6 kids get married so I will try and remember that next time around. They neither showed wishes for it but didn't date so maybe next time.
 
Mardy & Pluto were busy skilling and making friends and I wonder how Mardy will fare next time when his teenage Romance hormones kick in? Hopefully pretty well as his LTW is to have 20 Simultaneous Lovers!
