Round 1: Funke 1–Paternity Leave


Me: Good morning, Rhett.

Rhett: It is indeed a good morning. In fact, it may be the most beautiful morning ever.

Me: Why is that?


Rhett: Because I’m quitting my job. I am so happy that I will never have to clean another bed pan in my life that I would come through this screen and hug you if I could.

Me: Don’t thank me. You’re the one with the wish to join Law Enforcement. Since your Lifetime Wish is to be Super Popular, it doesn’t matter which career you’re in. So get out of those PJs and get down to the station.


Rhett: Well, I was thinking that I would join the force after Carol starts school. That way we’d save money on a baby-sitter.

Me: Oh, I see. Well ,I guess it is a good idea to save the money you aren’t making.

Screenshot-11 Rhett: You know it’s important that she learn all of her toddler skills so that she grows up well.

Me: Yes, I know. Well, I better get going, Rhett.

Rhett: Leaving so soon?

Me: Yeah, I don’t want to be around when you tell the mother of your three young children that she’s going to be the sole income for awhile.

So, yeah, another boring family.  I thought I had taken a capture of Rhett’s wish to join Law Enforcement, but I couldn’t find it in my Screenshots folder. I’m glad he wants to join the Law Enforcement career, because there are only four Sims in that career right now, and one of them is a townie.

Anyway, on to the good stuff….

The updates this time seemed to fall into one of three categories.  First, the baby boom continued.

Real smart to have a baby with the Town Casanova, Tamara.

TS3SP03 2011-02-05 10-14-54-26

Wow, I wasn’t expecting this one. Good for you, Iqbal!

TS3SP03 2011-02-05 10-14-58-59

It’s another boy for the Bunches. I’m still going through the Popular Australian Names list, so it is just a coincidence that the baby is named John. The name fits though since his father’s name is Jack, and Jack is often a nickname for John.

Yay, Connor got his girl! Funny enough, the only two girls born in Sunset Valley so far are first cousins.

I call the next category of updates “Ladies Rule.”

TS3SP03 2011-02-05 10-01-29-37

Illiana got promoted to Vice President,

And she did so by unseating Thornton. So, the top two people at Goth Industries are women: Nancy Landgraab (CEO) and Illiana.

Meanwhile, Vita Alto rules the political scene. She was promoted to Mayor and holds the highest office of the Political Sims.

TS3SP03 2011-02-05 10-14-34-19

Strangely enough, she didn’t get her husband’s vote!

The final batch of updates all center around my girl Pauline.

TS3SP03 2011-02-05 10-11-23-08

Hate to break it you you, Susan, but breaking Pauline’s tub is no big deal when she’s woohooing the repair guy anyway

TS3SP03 2011-02-05 09-48-19-70

Unlike Susan, Tori Steel has a legitimate reason for being miffed with Pauline. For shame, Christopher, I expected better from you.

TS3SP03 2011-02-05 09-47-25-63

Honestly, Kristofer, you’re as bad as Jennifer Martinez. I guess it is true to life. Sadly some people keep going back to bad relationships.

And speaking of “Martinez”, I missed getting a screen cap, but Pablo Martinez got married to a townie named Katrina Wiles. I’ve only been playing this hood for about two Sim weeks, and this man is on his third marriage, people!


  1. Well, three marriages in 14 years is a bit much for my standards,(been married to the same guy for 16 years plus 6 years together before that) but I guess it happens quite a lot in the world and in the simiverse :)

  2. I'm very conservative compared to my Sims. Their antics push me out of my comfort zone.
