Round 1: Williams 1 - Goin' Legit

There are only three lots left in Round 1! First up is the Williams family.
Me: Wow, Marley, you have a gorgeous view. That is a great spot to eat breakfast every morning.

Marley: It's ok.

Me: Ok? If I had that view I would never leave my house!

Marley: Don't get me wrong. The house is beautiful, and my family loves living here. I am feeling guilty about how I acquired it. You see, my wife and I were art thieves.

Me: Really? Apparently, you were good at it.

Marley: Yes, we were very good at it.

Marley: We were so good that we were able to put my wife through nursing school.

Marley: But our daughter, Malika, is getting older, and I don't want her realizing all she has came to her illegally. Also, my "boss" will be retired soon with Nick Alto coming to power. It's the perfect time to get out.

Me: Well, I can understand your reasoning, and of course I support a Sim who wants to earn an honest living. What are you going to do now?

 Marley: Excuse me for a minute, I hear the phone ringing.

Marley: Naw, Nick, I'm not interested in the job. I'm goin' legit, man...What? I don't care if you need me for this one last job. There will always be "one last job." I'm done...Come on, man, I've got a baby girl...I do what you gotta do. Can I at least think about it? Ok...yeah, we'll be in, you have a good day.

Me: That didn't sound too good.

Marley: He said he would expose me if I didn't do one last job for him.

Me: He's blackmailing you? Not surprised.

Marley: It's all good. He's giving me fodder for my new career.

Me: What new career?

 Marley: I'm going to write suspense novels about an art thief.

Me: Well, they do say to write what you know about. Good luck, and watch your back!

Their house is pretty crowded with two adults, three toddlers, and only one bedroom.

Talia's roommate, Noemi, married Fiona's ex-husband and moved into a new home.

As for Talia, she had triplets (two girls and a boy) with her husband, Adam. I renamed the triplets, but the SP message didn't pick up on it. The triplets are actually named Julia, Lena, and Fabian.

Ooh...I bet Corny and Agnes are getting together to plan Agnes's wedding.

 Could these two be any more different? I don't expect this to last long.

Pablo's ex-wife has moved on to Casanova, Galen Hickey. I know I have said it before, but Katrina, Fiona, and Jennifer just can't stay away from the Casanovas and gigolos.

I don't find it a shame at all. This opens the door to a Pauline and Hank reunion!

Ok, so Marley and Aimee wanting to "go legit" was inspired by both of them starting off in the Criminal career, but wanting to switch to Writing and Medicine. Nick Alto did actually call Marley to discuss art, so  that's where I got the idea of them being art thieves.

Round 1: Wainwright 1 -- Skip to My Sue, My Darlin'

Me:  Good morning, Sue.

Susan: Well, it's about time.

Me: Yeah, I know it has taken me a while to get to you guys. I have been going through a rough time.

Susan: Please spare me your personal problems. Save that for your shrink. I meant it's about time  because you skipped us!

Me: *blushing* You are right, I did.

Susan: Didn't you learn your ABCs? Wainwright comes before Wan.

Me: I know, I know. I was so eager to get to Pauline's lot, that I accidentally skipped you guys. My apologies.

Susan: I know you have your pets, but you could at least treat the rest of us like we exist.

Me: You've made your point. I am going to slink off now and check on Boyd.

Me: Hey, Boyd! *gagging* That looks pretty tasty...eww. Gotta love you slobby sims!

Susan: Well if he would let me hire a maid, he wouldn't have to eat spoiled food. And if he would let me hire a repairman, I wouldn't have to fix this stupid toilet.

Boyd: Why pay someone good money to do something that we are fully capable of doing ourselves?

Susan: So you fix the toilet next time.

Boyd: I would, buttercup, if you wouldn't jump ahead and fix it first.

Susan: I asked you do it last month, dear, but you've been too busy watching your nature documentaries to fix it.

Me: Speaking of nature, I think you two need to get out and get some fresh air. How about a trip to the park?

Me:  It's busy as usual. Spencer and Irene Funke caught my eye because they were swinging in perfect unison.

 Me: I can't remember if these two are twins. I'll have to double-check the next time I play them.

Me:  I think they might want a new computer for Christmas.

Susan wants to be a Chess Legend, so she is building up her logic and chess skills by playing a match against Coby Frederick.

Coby: I can't believe I took a job working on Vita Alto's campaign. I might as well be working for Satan himself.

Coby: I shouldn't have said that out loud. She'll probably send one of her husband's thugs after me.

Boyd: This was a great idea. My hobbies and interests normally keep me indoors, but there is nothing like being one with nature and taming wild beasts.

Me: Wild beasts? You caught a minnow, not a shark, Grizzly Adams. Anyway, I will see you two next round.

Fiona has adopted a dog. Hopefully, this male will stay loyal to her.

Aw, Jared and Connor are keeping the family bonds strong. I guess Jared was commiserating with his brother over his failed marriage.

Speaking of Connor's ex, Jamie is duking it out with Katrina over Casanova, Shelby Donner. I don't know why you two are fighting over Tamara's sloppy seconds.

 Gage decided to move out of the house that he was sharing with the other Townie boys.

Could it be that he is preparing a love nest for his bride-to-be? Congrats Agnes and Gage!
