Round 1: Martinez 2–The Jaded Spouses Club

Me: Ah, yes, and now the house I’ve been looking forward to…Pablo!


Me: Er,Pablo? What on Earth are you doing?

Pablo: Cooking breakfast. What does it look like?

Me: I can see that. I mean why aren’t you out doing Gigolo-y things?

Pablo: Shh.. not in front of the wife.

Katrina: Oh, please, Pablo, spare me. Unlike your previous wives, I have no expectations about your fidelity.

Pablo: Really? Score!

Me: *facepalm^


Me: Wow, Katrina, I have to say you’re pretty open-minded.

Katrina: I’ve gotten what I wanted from Pablo. All of his little floozies are going to put my William through boarding school.

Me: Jaded much?


Given the green light, Pablo went creeping at the gym. No sooner as he started to work out, Zelda Mae came running in screaming at him.

TS3W 2011-06-10 00-33-05-01

Me: Hello? Haven’t I been telling you girls this from the beginning?

Incidentally, this was my first experience with Generation’s Reputation System.


Pablo: Look, Zelda, calm down. I’m sorry if I led you on to believe there was more to our relationship than what it was. It was never my intention to hurt you. Let me make it up to you. I’ll take you out tonight and show you a good time.


Zelda: Eww, no. I’m happily married now, Pablo. I plan to stay that way. I just want all these unsuspecting women to know what a player you are. *storms off*


Pablo: These women drive me crazy. Do they not understand the simple concept of a business transaction? They give me a few Simoleons, and I show them a good time. But, no, they have to go psycho on me!


Pablo: Say, who is that hot redhead over there?

Me: Back off. That’s Gwen Glover, and she’s in a committed relationship with Cycl0n3 Sw0rd.


Pablo: Well, who is that vision? I haven’t seen her before.

Me: She’s a tourist from France.


Pablo: Err, never mind.

ROFL! She changed her outfit and gained fifty pounds! Silly EAxis!



The gym is quite busy today. I don’t think I have ever seen it this crowded. Still, no one is using the pool.


Me: Have a good day at work, Pablo. How about trying to score on the field for once?

Side note: I totally forgot Illiana was pregnant again. Later that night, she gave birth to a little girl named Mia. She’s gotten the best baby names so far: Lachlan and Mia. Mia is also the last girl name on the Australian list, so we’re moving on to the Austrian list.


Speaking of birthdays, little William is ready to age up to toddler, so Katrina threw him a party.


And here’s the little guy.


Me: Hey, wait a minute…are you…?


Me: You are! EWWWW! That’s your mother’s skirt! Like father, like son, I suppose.

William’s creeping me out isn’t even the real story of this party.


Me: Oh, snap!

I don’t care if it’s 2011, I did say “Oh, snap!” out loud when I saw this. This was autonomous action! I told y’all something was going on between Marty “Mojo” Keaton and Monika Sekemoto. I knew it! I knew it!



Check out the smoldering looks. And you see Mojo’s wife Justine in the background? They don’t care!

Just a thought, if Marty and Monika do get together, I’m going to call them “Momo”, which is the name of one of my favorite sushi restaurants.


Poor Leighton, clueless as usual.


These two are shameless! Dancing with each other with both of their spouses in the room.


Leighton’s finally paying attention. I think Katrina clued him in. She’s probably recruiting for the Jaded Spouses Club

I was surprised that the flowers didn’t trigger jealousy. I’m not sure if EA neglected to code in jealousy or if one of my mods is suppressing it. I don’t have Twallan’s Woohooer installed yet which I know overrides the EA jealousy system.

So I was disappointed that Justine and Leighton didn’t seem to care that their significant others were disrespecting them in public. I know if my husband gave another woman who wasn’t related to him a bouquet of flowers, there would be some jealousy up in here! *singing* “I bust your windows out your car…”


At least Coby Frederick has enough sense to dance with his own wife Narcissa at the party.


Me: Oh, don’t even go there, Pablo. Monika already has one suitor too many.

Pablo: Huh? I wasn’t going to do anything.


Looks like Justine is putting the pieces together now.


What’s this? Are the scorned lovers going to turn the tables on the cheaters? The Sekemotos will be coming up soon. I’m looking forward to seeing where this story goes.

SP Updates:

TS3W 2011-06-10 00-48-54-02

The Steels were living with the Sekemotos, but they decided to get their own place on Pinochle Point. I think they were worried Justine was going to come torch the place!

TS3W 2011-06-10 13-38-46-60

Another conquest for Hank.

TS3W 2011-06-10 13-39-26-05

Aw, poor Stiles. It took him forever to get hooked up with someone and then it doesn’t last long. His lot is up next. Stay tuned!

Round 1: Martinez 1–Back in the Saddle


Me: Hey, Jennifer.

Jennifer: Well, it’s about time. I’ve been waiting for you for ages. Where have you been?

Me: Long story. Anyway, it’s for your own good that I have been away because I have a bone to pick with you, girl.

Jennifer: *wincing* Is this about Pablo?

Me: It’s not just about Pablo. It’s about your poor choice in men in general. I was happy for you that you broke free from Pablo, but since then you have been flitting from man to man. I think you have some issues, Jen.

Jennifer: I don’t have issues.

TS3SP03 2011-02-19 14-04-56-13

Me: Really? You’re involved with three men right now, none who have a good track record in terms of fidelty. And you’re still giving your Gigolo ex-husband the time of day.

TS3SP03 2011-02-19 14-04-35-81

Jennifer: Can we discuss this later? I’m going on a job interview today.

Me: Admitting you have a problem is the first step, Jen.


While Jennifer was working, I panned the camera around town. The first thing I saw was a traffic jam at the school. I have so many kids and teenagers in this hood now that by the time they all get inside, the school day is almost over. And, it takes hours for them all to come home at night. Some of the teens are late to work because they can’t get out of the school building on time. I may need to add another school building to the hood.


I spotted townie Coby Frederick at the park, but he should have been at the hospital.

TS3SP03 2011-02-19 14-13-06-42


I spotted townie Galen Hickey in the park. A reader had asked what he looked like, so here he is. He has aged to Mature Adult now, but he was a pretty hunk Young Adult.


Clark Sauer was sitting outside the bookstore.

TS3SP03 2011-02-19 14-27-14-36

Make that, Clark Baker. Clark seems like a nice guy, but I was hoping Becky would hook up with that firefighter.

TS3SP03 2011-02-19 14-14-00-83

And more townies find love.

TS3SP03 2011-02-19 14-28-26-93

So Jared’s daughters are named Emily and Charlotte. I swear I’m not doing a Bronte theme with them. It’s a coincidence.

TS3SP03 2011-02-19 14-18-13-79

Congrats on getting the job, Jen. Sorry you have to work for Gus Hart.


Jennifer: *giggling* Sure, tonight at seven sounds great.

Me: Um, who was that?

Jennifer: It was Chuck Colbert, and he just asked me out.

Me: *sigh*

Jennifer: Oh, don’t even start. Chuck is a good guy. They say you have to kiss a lot of frogs to get to the prince.

TS3SP03 2011-02-19 14-13-23-62

Me: Pucker up, baby.

Jennifer: Look, I don’t need your negativity. I’m going out with him and that’s final.


Jennifer and Chuck went to The Grind, and the joint was jumping. I wished the game was smarter and made sure spouses danced with each other.


I love this shot. I imagine Thornton is looking across the room at Morgana and really seeing her for the first time. In my head, Thornton married Morgana because she was the “appropriate” choice rather than because he loved her. Beautiful, traditional, educated girl from a good family. The perfect wife for a future Fortune 500 CEO.

Jennifer: Um, I thought you were telling me story. The Wolffs will have their turn.

Me: Sorry.


I gave Chuck a makeover because I couldn’t stand his original look. I think he’s really cute now. Suddenly, I hope things work out between him and Jennifer. Unfortunately, at the end of the night Chuck said he had a horrible time. (I missed getting the screen cap).

Me: So, I guess you and Chuck are not a match?

Jennifer: *dejectedly* No, and I really thought he had potential. I guess it’s back to the drawing board.

Me: At least you got yourself out there again. Just be patient. The right guy will turn up. And for Will’s sake, stay away from Pablo!

Sorry that this entry was all over the place. Jennifer really didn’t give me much to work with. Anyway, I played this back in February, so I’m now caught up to my playing. The next entry will come out after Twallan has fixed SP. It will run with Generations, but he has not yet added Generation features to the mod. It does not work well with the new adjustable lifespans and other users are reporting issues with boarding schools and teen parties. I want to see those issues resolved before I play with the mod.
