Welcome to the neighbourhood! I’m so excited to start this rotation. My starter sim is Sandra Muffin.
What? That’s just her name, there’s nothing I can do about that. Or are you suggesting I chose that name for her because I love muffins and I’m a lazy goofball? Silly you.
Anyway, that’s her:
She’s an outgoing slob and goofball. And she’s so pretty without makeup I didn’t dare give her any except for some eyeliner. Here are some of her outfits. I gave her 5 everyday outfits and 3 in every other category so she has lots of clothes to chose from. I recently learned from CathyTea that sims do change their clothing autonomously! Isn’t that awesome?
It’s time to move Sandra into town. I’ve done a few builds lately and I decided that the Spanish Bungalow would be perfect for her.
Wait, this build costs about 200.000 and Sandra only has 20k…
Oopsies. You never saw this! Ò.Ó
Alright, so Sandra has magically inherited 200.000 Simoleons and is able to afford the Spanish Bungalow. So I moved her right in!
The first thing she did was check out one of the computers. I like to think that she ‘chose’ the purple bedroom that way (there is also a red one). She seemed very pleased with her new home.
She played Bicblock for a while and thought about Aliens. In hindsight, this makes a lot of sense. You’ll see what I mean.
She did check out the other computer in the entry hall.
But soon after, she went straight back to the purple computer (I’ll call it that from now on, easier) and played Bicblock again. She must really love that game.
No more video games now, Sandra! Time to get a job. While she was looking for jobs on her phone an astronaut popped up in her thought bubble, so astronaut it is!
Makes sense now, that she thought about the Aliens earlier, eh? Her daily task is playing chess, so I sent her to the chess table, but she was interrupted by Nina and Katrina Caliente welcoming their new neighbour!
I chose ‘Friendly introduction’ for both of them but Katrina was not amused. Apparently she expected a classier gal in this expensive house. She left straight away. Rude.
Sandra also didn’t hit it off with Nina. Although Sandra was being nothing but friendly, I got the message that Nina felt ‘unwanted’ at this house. Bummer.
But look who showed up fashionably late: Don Lothario.
Is that fruit cake? Oh dear. I hope he doesn’t try to impress Sandra with that.
I can’t decide if this look is ‘I like him’ or ‘Pff, I can see right through you’
Obviously, Sandra likes Don because they got along straight away and he even asked for her number! Their friendship bar was rising quickly, but no autonomous flirting happened. I’m not sure if I want Sandra to get going with Don. We’ll see. At least he took the fruit cake with him as he left. Phew, crisis averted.
Meanwhile, Nina strutted around like she owned the place!
Aaaaand, she’s playing Bicblock on the purple computer. What’s it with this computer and Bicblock? Must be a coincidence (Future me: Bahahaha).
After Don left, Sandra tried to chat her up, but Nina was not interested. Girl, you’re using her computer and not even going to talk to her? That’s low, really.
Later Nina warmed up a bit, and though she was talking mostly about herself, their friendship bar got back into green. Nice.
That’s it for today, tune in next time 🙂
PS: I saw Nancy Landgraab and Mortimer Goth strolling by. Can’t wait to play them as well!
