Round 1: Steel 1–Did You Forget You Were Married?

We now come to the lot of Christopher and Tori (Kimura) Steel.

TS3W 2011-11-26 23-11-33-25

Tori immediately rolls a wish to change careers. I’m annoyed because she’s the Mayor of Sunset Valley, but Sim wishes rule.


Christopher Steel is supposed to be an Angler, but he decided he wanted to join the Fire Department instead. This is his first call.

TS3W 2011-11-26 23-49-04-07

It’s the home of Claire Ursine.


Now, I know Chris is a popular pick as a legacy founder’s spouse, but I’ve never really paid him that much attention. I must say he does look rather dashing in his uniform.


Watching him fight that fire is really endearing him to me.

TS3W 2011-11-26 23-23-32-62

He has another fire to fight back at the station.


Apparently, Chris is the only male firefighter in Sunset Valley. From left to right, this is Gena Close, Glenda Sellers, and Eliza England. Lucia Gillespie and Shasta Goodson round out the squad. My husband was watching me play and called it the “Politically Correct Fire Station.”


While Chris is at the station, Tori is hosting a lunch party to get to know her new boss and colleagues. This was supposed to be a dinner party, but I forgot to change the time in the party planning screen. Anyway, I can tell that Shelby Donner is really keeping the guests enthralled.

TS3W 2011-11-27 00-12-04-00

Well, at least one person is enthralled by Shelby. Too bad it’s one of Hank’s baby mamas. And speaking of Hank..

TS3W 2011-11-26 23-57-08-78

He’s moved on to yet another woman.


Shelby certainly isn’t enthralled by his ex-wife, Tamara. Tori invited both of them to the party to see if they could rekindle their relationship. It doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.

TS3W 2011-11-27 00-05-21-12

Tori turns her thoughts to kindling something with Leighton. Um, don’t waste your time, Tori. Leighton is all about Monika right now. By the way, did you forget you were married?


Tori finally manages to get face time with her new boss, Maximus VanWatson.


And my, what face time it is! Look at the smoldering looks he’s giving her. We may have another office affair brewing. (I don’t care what Monika and Marty say, I know something’s going on.)

TS3W 2011-11-27 00-06-47-19

Hopefully, Maximus will remember that he’s family-oriented too.

TS3W 2011-11-26 23-37-38-97

Especially since he and his wife have a new baby!


TS3W 2011-11-26 23-59-00-90

The Sekemotos moved to a more expensive house, but it is one bedroom short.

TS3W 2011-11-26 23-59-43-81

Tobias just happened to be the next name on my baby list, but it really works since his father’s name is Toby. We can think of them as Tobias, Sr. and Tobias, Jr.

TS3W 2011-11-27 00-02-24-91

I thought Galen was married to Anne (nee Song). Must be another Romantic Reputation break up.

TS3W 2011-11-27 00-12-30-00

Galen does have quite the reputation now that he’s joined the ranks of the Gigolo Squad.

TS3W 2011-11-27 00-03-05-07

Blair is getting serious with her beau. Hmm, Walter Wainwright doesn’t sound too bad.

TS3W 2011-11-27 00-13-13-32

Emma picked Hugh. I hope this one sticks! Though, personally, I couldn’t be with a man who has prettier hair than I do.

TS3W 2011-11-27 00-13-01-04

Their own house, you say?

TS3W 2011-11-27 00-12-48-65

TS3W 2011-11-27 00-13-27-66

LOL! Harry took a page right out of Hank Goddard’s book: woo the girl, move in with the girl, then dump the girl. I’m glad he skipped over the “knock up the girl” step.

Round 1: Sekemoto 1—He’s Just a Friend

Oh, boy, the Sekemotos are up next, and how I have been waiting for this lot!


Monika: Leighton, I can’t believe you’re still giving me grief about Marty’s party.

Leighton: You spent more time with him at the party than you did with me, Monika. What am I supposed to think?


Leighton: It’s the muscles, isn’t it? I know he’s ripped. I can hit the gym more. I promise.

Monika: You’re being silly, Leighton.

Me: Yeah, there’s no way you can buff up that scrawny body.

Monika: You’re not helping.


Leighton: It’s the money, then? Team Captains pull a huge salary. The only way I could make that kind of money is to become captain of another team. But how could I play for anyone other than the Llamas?

Monika: It’s not the money.

Me: But a little extra Simoleons wouldn’t hurt.


Monika: I’m going to tell you this one time, and one time only, so you better listen up. Marty Keaton is my friend and my team captain, nothing more.


Monika: No matter what she wants to imply, I love you, Leighton Sekemoto. I love you. I love your son. I love our life together. And on most days, I even love your mother. You’re the only man for me.


Me: I guess you convinced Leighton that there’s nothing going on with you and The Mojo.

Monika: There is nothing going on, would you please stop it?

Me: *channeling Minnie from The Help*: Mmm-hmmm.


Me: So, did Monika put your mind at ease?

Leighton: Yes, she id. She was right, you know. I was being silly. I trust Monika completely. After all she picked me over all the other guys in town.

Me: Consider who her other options were. Is she going to pick Xander Clavell, player extraordinaire?  Or Gobias Koffi, who would probably be more interested in you than her?

Leighton: Hey, Gobias is married with a child.

Me: So was Shelby Donner for a while. And Pablo Martinez was married, and Hank Goddard has kids running all over Sunset Valley. Let’s face it, Leighton, Christopher Steel had already gotten snapped up. You were her best remaining option.

Leighton: Gee, thanks for making me feel better.

Me: I’m just looking out for your best interests. My mama always taught me if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it’s probably best friends with a mouse and a tripped out dog.

Leighton: Huh?

Me: Never mind. just be careful. I don’t want to see you and Sam get hurt.

Leighton: I know, and I am grateful, but Monika and I are going to be ok.

TS3W 2011-11-20 19-31-16-53

Leighton: In fact, I think it’s time we had a child of our own.

Me: *facepalm*


TS3W 2011-11-20 19-11-22-85

Pauline is at it again.

TS3W 2011-11-20 19-03-57-24

He may have a different face, but he is behaving like the Harry in my Lazlo save. As soon as Jennifer picked him, I knew he’d be trouble.

TS3W 2011-11-20 19-30-02-89

And another one of Jennifer’s suitors is off the market. Maybe Jennifer should get together with Stiles McGraw. That could work, couldn’t it? I don’t know why the girls won’t give Stiles a chance.

TS3W 2011-11-20 19-15-10-60

TS3W 2011-11-20 19-29-33-49

Wow, Emma. You must be doing something right to land these hotties.

TS3W 2011-11-20 19-31-35-74

Finally is right. They already had a baby and were living together.

And now for the shocker of the the day…

TS3W 2011-11-20 19-13-18-56

Are you kidding me? Not only are you guys old, but you’re breaking canon. Mortimer is supposed to be an only child.

Round 1: McIrish 1—She’ll Cut You

So, um, yeah, it’s been awhile since I last posted to this blog. I really want to finish Round 1 of Sunset Valley before the end of this year. I’ve got ten houses left after this one, assuming no one splits up. I’m going to try.


And speaking of trying, Molly French is really trying to focus on training up her daughter, Sandi, but Molly has wooing on the brain.

TS3W 2011-09-03 12-27-04-06

As do Cassanova Shelby Donner and Tart Jamie Frio. I need to go back and read my previous entries because I don’t remember Jamie getting divorced from Connor. I bet the Romantic Reputation system is to blame.

TS3W 2011-09-03 12-27-17-38

Here  she goes again. If this Harry Chesterman is anything like the Harry Chesterman in my Lazlo save, then this is not a good choice for Jennifer. Of course, when has Jennifer ever made a good choice where a man was concerned?


While Molly is training Sandi, River McIrish is entertaining her ex-stepdad, Zachariah and his friend, Berjes Anderson, with a ghost story. This is another gem from Generations that annoys me to no end.

TS3W 2011-09-03 12-54-31-32

I tell you, something else that annoys me to no end is Hank Goddard having babies with women other than Pauline Wan! I swear, I’m going to make another save and make them both family-oriented, nurturing, and hopeless romantics just so I can see them settle down.

TS3W 2011-09-03 12-55-43-86

Pauline is not helping things by finding a new boy toy.


The McIrish household was really boring, so I took some of them down to the park to see what drama  I could find. What I found was Noemi Foley making eyes at her roommate’s boyfriend.


The boyfriend in question is Torgo Pendragon, and the roommate in question is none other than Talia Epperson. Noemi, are you crazy, girl??? Talia doesn’t play. She’ll cut you.


I also found the townie boys hanging out at a picnic. From left to right, Milton Tong, Dave Ramsey, Abraham Finkell, and Gage Briody. You’ll always see these guys to start in a fresh Sunset Valley save.This picture gives me déjà vu. Have I used this picture in a previous entry?


River has a crush on Lawrence Lum. It looks like she wants to invite him to a costume party.

TS3W 2011-09-03 12-56-13-09

She thinks about him a lot.

TS3W 2011-09-03 12-46-39-73

Unfortunately for her, he is thinking about someone else.


TS3W 2011-09-03 12-47-39-94

Xander has found another victim. Nothing new there.

TS3W 2011-09-03 13-02-23-11

Blair has also found someone. Since Cycl0n3 Sw0rd is with Gwen Glover, I would like to see Blair get together with Stiles McGraw.

TS3W 2011-09-03 13-07-08-80

I just captured this because I thought the name Honey Pisces was cool.
