Worthington lll- Round 10- House 19

The final house and a new entry to the round is Francis J Worthington lll.
Francis J is joined by his college sweetheart Tina Lothario. Daughter of Don & Kaylynn the ex-maid.

They move into this house, found in the lots & houses bin and modified to have an attic room.

Once Tina finishes unpacking she makes a salad for lunch at Francis J's request.

The welcome wagon of Lilith (Pleasant) Dreamer, Dream1E Dreamer and a walkby townie all freak out when a tree sets on fire.

Francis J is busy chatting with Jordan the Diva before he cuts short their call to phone the fire department.

Another townie joins the other 'dance-around-in-circles-and-do-nothing-helpful' Sims.
A fireman came and put out the fire.
The tree burnt down though.

Lilith, "You shouldn't plant trees so close to the fence young man!"
Francis J, "It was here when we bought the property you old moaner".

Francis J got to take a bath after the other guests had helped themselves.
There's nothing he hates worse than mess. :D

As Tina didn't seem to be in the mood for cooking Francis J treated them to a meal out.
Things didn't go quite as planned.

But dessert was so much better and Tina was thrilled with the surprise engagement.
The next day Francis J hired a maid. Tina was not neat at all and Francis J knew it would drive him mad to come back from work to a filthy home.

That evening Jordan sent an invite for an outing and Francis J and Tina happily attended.

Although Tina spent most of the night squishing 'roaches.
Tina- "ugh vermin!
        ugh vermin!
        ugh vermin!"
(she had 6 memories of it by the end of the night).

Townie Joy Young does not like Count Grayson.
I'm not sure slapping him is such a good idea though.

He's so mad he makes a beeline for the waitress in the kitchen.

I'm only serving raw steak from now on".
Francis J- "look Alan have you seen a mirror? I can't have you looking scruffy if you're going to work for me".

Francis J-"see? that's so much better!"
(In his thumbnail Alan's shirt was pink so I went for matching colour only to find he's not wearing pink at all). :D
Tina- "I've learned how to control my anger but I must have eaten something bad last night. Did I cook"?

 Tina's LTW is to be a Celebrity Chef.
Francis J isn't thrilled about his fiancée working but allows her to go for now until she has a family to look after.
Francis J soon became the Chief of Staff at Pleasantview General Hospital.
His next LTW is to become a Media Magnate and he's always looking for ways to make lots of money.
Once again Tina isn't home to cook his dinner so he cooks his speciality dish of Lobster Thermidor.
After inviting a walkby to join him he then influences them to tidy up the yard.
Tina comes home with a promotion...
and a surprise!
Tina, "But we could have invited my family Francis J!"
Francis J, "there was no time my sweet- we don't know how soon you'll give birth to my heir. I mean our child".
Francis J- "well Mrs Worthington lll, how about you go make me a sandwich?"
When Francis J was at work the next day Tina invited her mother and two of her sisters' around.
Francis J came home from work and blurted out how he and Tina had married the previous day.
Kaylynn does not look impressed.

Still they had a nice family dinner and got to know each other a little better.
Tina- "oh Francis J, I do love snuggling in bed on a Saturday".
Francis J- "me too, but those hedges do need trimming".
Tina- "I do love my husband, I do love my husband".
Francis J- "Finish up now dear, let me rub your shoulders oh and meet me in the bedroom".
Fulfilling wishes!
Tina- "Honestly Mrs Dreamer I never realised married life would be so hard.
I'm tired all the time!"
Tina- "Mrs Dreamer's been giving me some baby tips Francis J".
Francis J- "Good God woman don't put me off my lobster!"
Francis J- "What was that? oh my god the carpet".
Tina- "It's twins Francis J! A son and a daughter".
Francis J- "We'll call them Charles J and Candice J, family tradition you know".
Francis J- Well I don't know about you Tina but I'm exhausted, how about making me a sandwich?
Tina & Francis J both wished to learn about Parenting (yes really!).
 "They cost what?!!"
"They don't sleep through the night until they're how old?!!"
Luckily Tina had bought many energizers and stored them in her inventory. She had no time for sleep.
A genie dropped off a lamp for Tina who despite her exhaustion had fulfilled her Lifetime Achievements.
Francis J wished to summon the genie first and wished for wealth.
Francis- "I've got lots of mouths to feed you know!".
Neighbour Carter (Broke) Burb popped by to introduce himself and welcome Francis J to the neighbourhood.
Tina just finished learning about Parenting.
Tina- "so the book said to fold the diaper there, pin here and fold...what the heck.. this is complicated".
Tina- the book said cradle the head and lean up a bit so as not to choke on the bottle...

Francis J- "honey I'm home, I got another promotion, is there any dinner?"
Tina hadn't cooked dinner but had made Francis J a nice winter sweatshirt.
Francis J- "there you go dear no doubt you've had a long day. What have you been doing? No fires lit, no dinner cooked"...?
Tina- "screammmmmmmmmmmmmm!"
Ok so it's not my usual narration but I felt like a bit of a laugh.
Sadly since I installed windows 10 on my pc I can't seem to print screen so no family trees or special events at the moment.
The neighbourhood is running a little slow but I'm hopeful I can play round 11.
I actually quite like Francis J- he's a little dull with his wishes with the buy this, blog this, etc but he does clean of his own accord and he's worked hard this week as he needs to move his family to a new home for the next round as this one is too tiny.
Tina- also a little boring with the wishes- she had lots of nature related ones so hiked and birdwatched a lot but I'm saving buying her a garden until they move house.
I wasn't too surprised that Tina had twins- she is a twin herself after all. :D
I'm looking forward to seeing how their kids turn out as I think Francis J (along with Monica Bratford) is one of the few really facially expressive sims in the sims 2. :)
So that's it for round 10! I have one Sim in Uni and that's Graham Gregory, we'll see him in round 11.
I never scored this round- I'm just enjoying playing now but still keeping to the wishes style.


  1. LOL! That was great. Fabulous.

    I have been putting off upgrading to windows 10 because I'm worried things won't work well. I've been having problems taking screen shots for a while. I've been using the snipping tool that comes with windows. It's not as perfect but it gets the job done.

    Great as always. Hope you can continue on.

    1. Thanks for stopping by :)
      I don't care for Windows 10 and am going to put Sims2 on a pc with 7.
      I used to be able to go into properties on the Sims2 folder to enable taking a screen but it seems to have disappeared since Windows 10. I'll check out the snipping tool.
      Yes I think it will be fine to carry on and I'm getting straight to round 11 :)

  2. love the way you made Francis sound a bit pompous and over the top. I certainly like this style of writing. I don't want to install window 10 in case anything happens to my sims. I need a new computer but worried i wouldn't be able to install sims 2.

    1. Yes I always think of Francis J as a bit pompous :)
      When I last had to reinstall Sims2 I had to use the Origin version (which was a free download at the time) as you can't install past Bon Voyage anymore owing to the fact the Launcher doesn't work now.
      Presumably there are ways around this, but I don't know what they are. :)

  4. This was a great Sunday morning coffee read for me, thank you!
    I love their house, it is so different on the inside from what you'd expect from the outside. And it's nice to see the outfits, walls and floors in your game that my Sims can use now, too :-)

    1. Thanks for reading, yes it's so nice to have some new décor for the homes. Francis J packed most of his stuff into his inventory from his college house which saved a fortune too. :)
