Dominic Hollie, Oleander Hollie, Regina Hollie, Ryan Hollie

*Kimi and Loralie went to spend the summer with Paul Russell, who plans to petition for custody.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 20-42-56-21

Dom and Oleander are both at work, so it ‘s just the twins and Nanny Dianna today.

If you recall, Dom became our first tycoon last season and Oleander is level 7 in architecture.  The toddlers have all skills and plenty of toys, so I’ll just triple speed until the daddies get home.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 20-48-41-01

Okay, let’s have another adorable pic first.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 20-50-57-49

*gigglesnort*    I think Dom needs to head back to the barbershop and make his brother fix his face.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 20-50-38-73

Also, Oleander got a promotion.  You can see him hiding behind the mailbox covering his ears from the loudness of Dom’s helicopter.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 20-53-10-74

Oleander came home wanting a baby, while Dom has a fear of another one.  Cue a plantbaby.  This might take a bit because I just put in a new PT set in.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 20-55-21-63

Meet Oak, an aspiration fodder baby.  Oleander thanks you for the 8,000 points and saving him from failure.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 20-56-48-33

Dominic:  *grumblegrumble*  I don’t want any more kids!  >:{
Tough, it’s not yours anyway grumpy.  Also Tobias O’Hara came home with Dom and plays with baby Oak while Oleander works on the two creativity points for his next promotion.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 20-59-52-75

Are you playing with him?
Dom:  Or course not.  I’m trying to scare him with my horrifying face makeup.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 21-01-21-14

Oak:  Haha Daddy not scary!
Dom:  I’m not dad—fine.  I guess.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 21-03-44-17

Since Dom and Oak were in a good mood, I got them started on the nursery rhyme.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 21-13-03-26

Oleander takes a break from painting to make the miserable plants happy.  He talks all night and into the next day.  When Dom returns from work, they head to Fayers Sports Center for some money making.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 21-36-01-10

Oleander had a want to make a wish, which worked and gave him $1,000.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 21-37-58-95

Dominic just snoozes in his own little area blocked off from everyone.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 21-40-04-59

I don’t think they will make rank 10 this season, but they are getting closer and making a lot of cash.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 21-40-27-52

I seriously thought this was Oleander for like 2 days.  It turned out to be Orchid.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 21-41-49-69

Oleander was found outside trying to max his creativity skill.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 21-57-06-57

After he did that and maxed his enthusiasm he started making tips performing.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 21-59-10-08

Ticket prices were dropped to an all time low and Dominic tries his hand at selling.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 22-00-46-72

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 22-07-10-05

Lavender visits and they become best friends and she might have been the one to put us up to rank 7.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 22-09-54-31

Now that they are millionaires, ticket prices are dropped to $2 and these two meditate at triple speed.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 22-19-12-47

Maybe they will reach rank 10 after all.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 22-20-24-44

I caught these two sneaking off to the hot tub.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-13 22-20-56-36

Which means Donald the Reviewer did not get greeted and he just worked out.

Then my game crashed and when I went to load it up it said M&G wasn’t installed.  HDCU did not find a single conflict and I did a repair through Origin and took a couple of days break.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 08-38-19-30

A few minutes after loading, they reached rank 7 again, so glad I added that dazzle energy mod thing and saved.  Oleander was back down to wanting level 9 creativity, which he got around the same time as the rank up.  They also aren’t millionaires anymore, so the price to get in was increased.  Although a typo had Oleander trying to dazzle (unsuccessfully) people into paying $99,999.  LMAO

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 08-34-59-71

With paying customers Sophia Hall, Jared Russell, Mable Bryan and Molly Bryan plus two NPC’s, Kim Page and Enrique Randall, they were raking in about $60,000 an hour.  Enrique has 4 loyalty stars, so he will be asked to leave when he pops out his last one to make room for someone else with cash in their pocket.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 08-51-24-64

Oleander re-maxes his creativity and now wants to max his enthusiasm again too.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-00-09-19

During the Smustle, Enrique finally gave up his star and was asked to leave.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-02-23-82

Julia Russell was the replacement, but now I’m worried with both her and Jared here.  I hope they don’t fight.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-03-44-72

Wow, apparently my math was off since I found Ellie’s name in the customer list.  She was upstairs playing.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-06-41-12

I made everyone stop what they were doing to join in for Smustle Day.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-10-45-22

Some people left and Ashlee Hall and Tyler Ratner replaced them.  Then Ellie got struck by lightning and left, but at least she was alive.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-12-18-33

Ellie’s replacements are Catherine Lewis and Joseph Hollie.  I am determined to get back to rank 8 before they leave.  They are also at $2million.  It turns out that Joseph can’t afford the ticket and leaves.  I forgot they were poor.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-14-40-13

Bertha Wyatt comes in.  I prefer NPC payers because I hate to see how poor the playables will be next season.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-16-45-01

It’s a treacherous storm and Bertha immediately get struck by lightning and leaves.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-18-28-09

Wooo Donald the Reviewer came back!  Also Sabrina Hopson and Joseph Bradley make an appearance and pop out their $10,000.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-20-19-90

Donald walked in and got pissed that Sabrina was on the treadmill.  He wrote in his notebook and then took off.  Jerkface!  Penny Ramsey enters the lot.  I just need 4 stars to Rank 8 people!  C’mon.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-23-30-22

Louise Ratner, Antoine Becker and a returning Bertha Wyatt are granted entry.  An unseen Andrew O’Hara was given free entry because he’s the poorest family in town.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-27-24-13

We can thank Julia Russell for this treasure.  I decided to keep the prices as is and go for rank 10 after all.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-35-58-88

Aww shit!  I tried to cancel it, but I was too late.  Dammit.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 09-36-47-86

Ermahgerd!

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 10-33-51-47

Ticket prices are now at $2.  I realized they had $4,000,000.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 10-38-11-50

Dominic wanted to fish and he was about in aspiration failure, so half of a pool was deleted to make room for a pond.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 10-50-43-51

I probably should have had them fishing from the beginning!  Dominic wants a gold badge, so they will stay a bit longer.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-01-14-95

I didn’t realize they still had the whole season left to play.  Oleander heads off to work and returns with a promotion.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-01-25-03

Besties Open-mouthed smile

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-03-02-34

Not only did he get that promotion, but he also got his first pop during weeding.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-06-38-56

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-06-48-09

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-07-26-75

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-08-15-19

Ryan, Regina and Oak all surprised me with birthdays.  Oak takes a job in Business because we are really failing in that department.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-15-45-75

He rolled his occult inheritance and got a no. He called up the Gypsy and bought a potion.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-16-32-78

He’s kind of plain, but still cute.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-18-25-97

He even went ahead and got a blind date.  This Uni guy is Gordon Nott, only two bolts and it was pretty boring.  They ended the date at “good”.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-25-57-23

With all three kids having bank accounts in the six digits, Oleander went ahead and passed over ownership of the Sports lot.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-38-25-61

Then they headed to said lot so that Oleander could pass on all the perks.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-46-16-60

Oleander went above and beyond with his boy.  They opened up the complex and let several people pay extreme amounts of money for two hours.  After earning $100,000, Oak fulfills his LTW.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 11-29-30-57

Three more universities were funded and sent off to Tobias so that he could tally it all up at the end of the round.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 12-16-07-41

Dominic ends the season by crying because I keep cancelling out his numerous (10x an hour) attempts to woohoo.  I finally turned off woohoo with the adjuster.  After that they spent all their time with Regina and Ryan.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-15 12-40-56-62

On top of funding three colleges, they paid out $23,800 in taxes (Rounded up from 23,750).

I am so not looking forward to twins next season.  Ugh.  Poor Oleander is going to be running around pregnant for eons now.
