Ratner 2 Family
This is basically an empty lot where I threw sims who had nowhere else to go. Jody Johnson was made in CAS to help when some weird glitching that was going on earlier in the round. We officially met her when she got a makeover from Joseph Hollie.
There is a lot going on this update, so grab a coffee and some snacks and we’ll head on in.
Everyone who has a job leaves and then I watch Ashlee Hall kick the trash. I wonder what brought that on.
Alisha and Ellie both hired in at level 9, but Ellie had a bad chance card and got demoted. She ran straight back to work and gained her level back.
They had enough money pooled together after promotions to finally get a house.
Paul Clarke was a friend of Ellie’s as a teen and they apparently got engaged at some point. They only had one bolt and decided to call that off.
Ellie went out to the Fayers sports place but couldn’t afford the $9,999 (I need to remember to turn off the ticket machine!), so she stayed outside and waited for Oak to come out to sell tickets. She talked him into a date because she rolled the want to date him after meeting him.
She invites him over and I get a pop up that the both have the flu. Ellie immediately makes soup and then pockets the rest.
Jody: I want some!
Ellie: Are you sick?
Ellie: Then you can’t have any.
Ellie the Moron rolls engagement AND marriage wants for Oak, who is gay. LOL
Ellie then heads off to the tried and true Hot Tub Heaven run by the town hoe, Fern. Ellie immediately meets Timothy Mosley and they have 3 bolts! She asks him on a date.
Which eventually led this to happen.
Ellie: What do you mean you only have $5,000!
Tim: I totally just married a rich babe!
Back home, Jody kept trying to put the moves on Tim. Luckily he didn’t accept them.
Meet Rascal. Ellie wants to raise a puppy and Alisha wants a pet to max out a career. There was only one dog at the pound and it was not a puppy. Ellie befriended Rascal and kept him around long enough to adopt him.
The dog at the pound is Ariel.
They both got jobs in service. Oh and I forgot that Alisha had a servo in her inventory. Irona was brought out on the first day. They get started on pet skills.
Found some fish in their inventories.
More skills for Rascal.
Which leads to more skills. I see a pattern emerging.
Alisha recovers from her demotion finally.
I’m not sure where Jackie came from since she doesn’t have a job, but Alisha was super happy to see her.
They have a date and Jackie rolls this out of nowhere. HA! Gotcha!
This happened while I was trying to get Alisha’s date bar to rise.
Jackie enjoyed her woohoo with Alisha.
Jackie’s marriage fear rolled away, so with Olive O’Hara as a witness, a proposal was made and accepted.
Jessie comes over now that Jackie lives there.
Tim: I think Ellie is knocked up.
I think so too.
Rascal completes Alisha’s LTW! Good boy!
The never seen Irona buys an arcade (exactly like one already in town) and adds some stuff around the lot for humans. She borrowed Jody’s education bookcase too.
Day 1 with Irona and Jackie brings a rank, an award and a silver badge.
Jackie takes a much needed break to play kicky bag with her sister.
As soon as her aspiration rises, she hits the energizer and then gets back to reading. She wants to max out 7 skills.
With only charging $40 a ticket, it only takes a few days for Rank 5 and for Jackie to complete the two or three skills she didn’t complete at university.
I actually was triple speeding through the day and missed Irona get her gold badge. Here is Clarence Martin being conned into paying $1,500 for a ticket while Jessie is paying for hers already.
Jackie has now learned everything from the bookcase that she can and now wants to sell a masterpiece.
Everyone here is paying $1,500 to watch tv.
Lots of reputation stuff and free samples too.
Gaming competition with Jackie.
Irona and C-3PO were charging next to Stanley, but he ran off before I could get a pic of all three together.
I didn’t even give this a second thought until they were done and flirting.
I apparently did not see this when it happened! I immediately had Irona send Lavender away.
Irona ends up with a tv and a computer and Jackie gets a tv.
I’m not sure why they stuck around, but it was a mass hangout with free admission.
Back home, Irona hands over fistfuls of cash to everyone. Jackie, Alisha and Rascal move out.
Whew, so glad it was a single pup.
Ellie’s addiction continues. She wants to befriend Daisy and then after that she wants to be her master. Jody and Ariel now move out.
Irona continues in her quest to unlock a spot in Intelligence.
I saw the “Rally Forth” option and decided to try it out. I cracked up.
When Ellie went into labor, I decided to age up Daisy too. Tim and Ellie welcome a little girl named Hazel into their family.
Ellie’s secondary LTW is to become the law, so she got a job in that and is working her way up. Irona tops her career!
Irona decides that it is time for her to move out too.
Taxes paid: $17,800 (rounded from 17,799).
Tim busted the computer while paying taxes. Sadly he did not electrocute himself.
Pretty busy house and I was really happy to see everyone move out. Haha. They are all tacked on to this round, so we should be able to get through them fast and get on to Round 6.
