After three generations have grown up in the house that Andy Breckman built threw together at random, it was time the family packed up and moved on…

Screenshot-2074

Charlene: You forgot me!

She could have just stayed behind, I was just putting them on a vacant lot until the new house was ready.

Screenshot-2076

Yep, I downloaded a Mod The Sims house. I stink at building, and wanted to use a real house. Also, I just love waiting 5 minutes for the graphics to load.

Screenshot-2078

Ethan: Hey, look there’s a tomb down here.

Be careful, there might be a mummy.

Ethan: Oh boy! Maybe he’ll read me a story.

I guess raising kids with a mummy has interesting side effects.

Screenshot-2082

Mummy with really long Egyptian name I didn’t write down: LOVE.  LOOOOOOVEEEE!

I guess he’s friendly.

Screenshot-2084

And the object of his affection is Harley!

Screenshot-2085

Ethan, on the other hand, he doesn’t care for.

Screenshot-2087

And the big prize at the end of the tomb is…

Ethan: Nectar.

Well, that could be a nice collection…

Ethan: Two bottles.

Set the mummy on fire.

Screenshot-2088

Ethan: I liked my old garden better.

Well, you just mastered gardening, so you don’t need it.

Screenshot-2089

Ethan: I caught a frog.

Kermit: Why are there so many songs about rainbows? WHAT DOES IT MEAN???

Screenshot-2090

Ethan: Now to max out fishing at the only place spookier than home.

Ghost: Boo!

Ethan: Are you kidding me? My house is haunted, and my aunt is a flaming ghost just like you.  And my wife is a GHOST BUSTER! Who’s scared now?

Ghost: Oh, look at the time, I’m missing “Paid Programming.”

Screenshot-2091

Ethan: Mastered fishing, and caught a death fish.

Ah, so that’s what “You’ll catch your death” means.

Screenshot-2092

Ethan: The library isn’t as much fun any more now that I’m allowed to be here.

Try working in one, it gets even worse. (Librarian)

Screenshot-2093

Darlene: Ha ha, your furniture texture isn’t loaded!

Consignment store guy: Do you want me to go to YOUR house with a calendar?

Screenshot-2094

Guess what I sold right after this picture was taken?  Yeah, I’m mean, but I really can’t stand hearing the same simlish songs over and over, and Harley won’t do anything but dance and work out if I let him.

Screenshot-2095

Ethan moves on to handiness, and manages not to electrocute himself.  I really want to see what Lakisha would do with a ghost spouse.

Ethan: What?

Nothing.

Screenshot-2096

Speaking of which, lets see what Winston Zeddemore is up to.

Lakisha: I want to be Peter Venkman!

No.

Lakisha: Ray Stantz?

No.

Lakisha: Not even Egon Spangler?

Nope.

Lakisha: Meany.

Screenshot-2098

Lakisha: This house is a mess.

Yeah, you’re busting ghosts here several chapters too late.

Screenshot-2100

Look, it’s the oldest member of the Breckman-Kent family!

Luke: DOORBELL. MAYBE I WILL FINALLY FIND A NEW FRIEND. IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE MY BUDDIES MONK AND GURTON DIED, AND MY WI-

Just shut up already and get the door.

Screenshot-2101

Luke: IT IS MY EMPLOYEE, ETHAN KENT.

Ethan: A simbot!  Why was I here again? Oh yeah. Can I—A SIMBOT!

Screenshot-2102

Hours (and I do not exaggerate) later…

Ethan: Oh, right. Can I have a promotion?

Luke: SURE YOU DO NOT WANT TO YELL “A SIMBOT” AGAIN?

Ethan: A SIMBOT? Where?

Luke: JUST TAKE YOUR PROMOTION AND GO.

Screenshot-2104

Of course, Luke then gave him the day off so he wouldn’t earn another promotion too soon (Can’t have THAT now, can we?) But we had a productive day anyway.  Except for no one getting killed.

Ethan: What?

Nothing.

Screenshot-2108

Ethan: I wonder how I can improve the meal quality from my stove. I know, beat the glass top range with a hammer!

Screenshot-2112

Ethan: Hmm, how shall I make the microwave cook faster.

Bang it with a hammer?

Ethan: BANG IT WITH A HAMMER!

Screenshot-2115

Ethan: Hmm, make the fireplace auto-light…

Bang it with a hammer?

Ethan: BANG IT WITH A HAMMER!

Screenshot-2117

Meanwhile Winston–

Lakisha: Lakisha!

Winston is continuing to bust ghosts, and advance faster than Ethan. Here she is in the Bachelor home. Toni, the bald chick in the back is the town tart. Her hairstyle draws the guys like flies.

Screenshot-2132

And then she sells all the ghosts to the science lab. I don’t know what they do with them, but I hope it’s not keep them in a container for William Atherton to turn off, and set all the ghosts free and cause chaos everywhere.

Screenshot-2133

Ethan: Time to upgrade the trash compactor.

Bang it with a hammer?

Ethan: Don’t be silly.

Screenshot-2140

There’s a strange woman in our shower!

Lakisha: It’s me! I’m washing my hair!

Oh, hi Winston.

Lakisha: (sighs)

Screenshot-2143

Finally found the computer Clark?

Clark: It was on the third floor. Took me 2 days to climb all the stairs.  I need a laptop.

Screenshot-2144

Harley: LAPTOP? NO SEE LAPPPPPTOOOOPPPP!

Screenshot-2145

Ah! Strange woman in the bedroom!

Lakisha: It’s me La— Winston. Did you expect me to sleep in that hair?

Kind of.

Screenshot-2150

Oh yeah, Ethan, I forgot to mention something.

Ethan: FIRE! FIRE!

That fireplace…

Ethan: Yeah?

It WAS fireproof, before you made it auto-light.

Ethan: Oops. Sorry.

Screenshot-2151

Don’t apologize to me, you should apologize to Mr. Pyrophobe.

Around this time, Lakisha was finally able to change her lifetime wish from Tomb Explorer.  Unfortunately, they were all still WA picks.

Screenshot-2154

So I chose the 20,000 worth of relics one. Piece of cake. Thanks Beef Supreme!

Screenshot-2155

B. S.: Don’t mention it.

Oh, hai.

Screenshot-2157

Here’s America’s Next Food Network Star, HARLEY BULL!

Harley: Egggggs.  EGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGS!

Ok, he got cut in the first round.

Screenshot-2161

Charlene: I wish I wasn’t a Kent!

Screenshot-2163

Charlene: I’m starving! What do I do?

Eat your cake? Yeah, you’re still a Kent, all right.

Charlene: Are you sure?

Screenshot-2168

You just aged up at a 8 AM birthday party in your underwear. You’re a Kent. And a kleptomaniac!

Screenshot-2170

AND, you don’t know how to play foozball with another person properly.

Screenshot-2173

AND… You watch the kids channel as a teenager.

Charlene: OK, OK, I get it.

Screenshot-2172

Ethan: Don’t I look bad ass on my bike?

In that outfit? No.

Ethan: But I’ll get a promotion today, that’ll get me a new outfit!

Screenshot-2175

Yeah, that one is TOTALLY bad ass.

Ethan: Shut up.

Screenshot-2181

Lakisha: How does the poltergeist lift this shower without totally destroying the tile?

I dunno, same way it sucked Carol Ann into the TV?

Screenshot-2185

Hey, wait a minute, I know this homeowner! Hi Clarka, how’s the family?

Clarka: Family?

You know, your daughter? Hungry Lyktha?

Screenshot-2186

Clarka: Oh, her. She’s over there.

Um, nice parenting. Hey wait a minute, why is she STILL a baby?

Clarka: Who?

Nevermind.

Screenshot-2188

Lakisha: Hmm, maybe I should introduce myself to my Aunt-in-law.

Clarka: OK, you can leave now.

Screenshot-2189

Lakisha: Not even a thank you.

Well, that’s Clarka!  And with that, I think it’s also time for YOU to leave. Bye now!

Screenshot-1570

So where are you off to, Clarka?

Clarka: I need some scrap.

So the junkyard then?

Screenshot-1571

Or the Wolff household…

Screenshot-1572

Clarka: I really don’t like their kitchen. What’s with that wall behind the stove?

Screenshot-1573

What stove?

Screenshot-1574

Thornton, you might want to check out what’s going on in your home.

Screenshot-1575

Thornton: There is a bomb on my end table. I should put this book down and run.

Screenshot-1576

Morgana: I don’t care much for this Clarka Kent person.

Screenshot-1577

Clarka wins the rudest guest ever award!

Screenshot-1581

Clarka: Yes! Just what I needed!

Screenshot-1582

Clarka: This will make the job much easier.

Well, at least she did some cleaning up.

Screenshot-1580

Having maxed Logic, Athletics, Charisma, and Music, Harley decides to tackle cooking.

Harley: Chopped.  CHOPPPPPEEDDDD!

Screenshot-1583

J. J.: Hey, don’t I get a cake at least?

Sorry, I forgot it was your birthday.

J. J.: You get a pop-up the day of!

Screenshot-1584

J. J.: Finally, I don’t have to wash all that hair.

Screenshot-1590

Clarka: 500 Science and Math, 600 Technology, 700 Arts… oh screw this.

Screenshot-1591

Clarka: 662, Explosives!

Blowing up the library cost me thousands of dollars in fines, while blowing up the Wolff’s cost me about 20 bucks per item.  I like the game’s priorities.

Screenshot-1592

Harley was told by Clarka to have a cook-out and invite everyone he knows.  He doesn’t understand why the picnic tables are grouped so close together.

Screenshot-1596

The guests, slightly wary, avoid using all the tables.

Screenshot-1597

Marty: Hey, what’s that on this table?

Clarka: Never you mind…

Screenshot-1598

After that table exploded, the rest of Clarka’s plan didn’t pan out has she hoped.

So they moved the party inside.

Screenshot-1599

Clarka: I’ll be way over here, you all stand as close to the dryer as you can.

Screenshot-1601

While the guests in the living room managed to get out with no problem, the resulting fire did spread to the bathroom.

But Gurton came in and rescued the ladies.

That’s when Clarka discovered the snake charming basket.

Screenshot-1605

Abraham: There’s a snake in my boot!

Needless to say, Clarka’s just not been right since her resurrection. If she ever was before.

Screenshot-1609

J. J.: Shouldn’t you help with the cleaning?

Harley: Woahhhhh Listen to the music… woahhh listen to the music… MUSICCC!

Screenshot-1610

I am so sick of that stereo, sims are turning it on autonomously all the time, but not once do they turn it off.

Screenshot-1611

Thank you, Clarka.

Screenshot-1614

Clark continues to write book after book, working his way up to Vaudevilles. Apparently they’re over 1200 page long books, and not plays where mustached villains tie damsels to railroad tracks.

Screenshot-1615

Cleaning up after the party took days, and sims often got interrupted mid cleaning. I’ve never seen so many flies before.

Screenshot-1618

We called the repairlady to fix a few things after the party, and apparently she wanted to marry into the family, showing up in a bridal veil.

Screenshot-1620

Clarka built a time machine, so she could take out her evil urges in the past and future.

Screenshot-1621

Relieved that she was no longer blowing up stuff in present-day Sunset Valley, the town gave her a medal.

Screenshot-1629

Now that she was an elder, Beef Supreme got into a hobby enjoyed only by the very young and very old: Fishing.

Screenshot-1631

Fortunately, instead of keeping these ugly monstrosities in the house, Beef sold them all to the consignment store.

B. S.: It’s either that or Harley makes us sushi, and I hate sushi.

Screenshot-1635

Not allowed to retire, J. J. catches up on zzz’s anywhere she can.

Mailbox and trashcan: Hey genius, wait for us to load before hitting “C.”

Screenshot-1636

Reminded by the repairlady’s veil, Clark realizes as heir he has work to do.

Kaylynn: Look, your story about chicken is interesting and all, but I am already married to Ethan Bunch. But, hey, he’s got a ton of sisters, you might try your luck with one of them.

Screenshot-1638

Clark: Do you like chicken?

Ethan: Is this dude hitting on my sister?

Screenshot-1639

Darlene: No, I like DIRT!

This girl is definitely legacy material.

Screenshot-1644

Clark: I know you just ate dirt, but I’ll kiss you anyway.

Screenshot-1648

Clark: Also, I bought this before I came to the park, hoping some random girl would come home with me.

Darlene: I’LL BE THAT RANDOM GIRL!

Screenshot-1653

Darlene: Lucky for you, I brought Wedding Bands to the park.

Screenshot-1655

Clark: And with this ring, we find out what your LTW is. Please don’t be Golddigger… Please don’t be Golddigger…

Fortunately for Clark, it’s International Super Spy.

Screenshot-1656

Darlene: Um, I live with a Mummy now…

Screenshot-1657

Darlene: Mummies are AWESOME! I’m so putting this on Youtube.

Screenshot-1658

At the age of 87, Dewey finally becomes a Sports Legend. I guess if your team goes 1-10 when you play in 2-3 games ever, it takes a while to get the recognition you deserve.

Screenshot-1660

Realizing she can die at any moment, Beef finally reconciles with her dad’s best friend.

Luke: I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW.

Screenshot-1661

Darlene gets to work on the bad side of her job: writing reports on Nick Alto’s garbage.

Darlene: Mr. Alto likes Beer, Mac and cheese, and Highlights Magazine.

Screenshot-1663

Lt. Wainwright: Good job exposing who stole the Highlights magazines from the pediatric hospital waiting room. You have earned a promotion. Now if only we can make headway on who’s stealing all the cop cars.

Darlene: I’ll keep a look out, but I just haven’t seen any clues at all.

Screenshot-1668

Robbie Bland: Good job stealing all those cop cars, you’ve earned a promotion.

Screenshot-1670

Clark: Congrats on making Vice Squad.

Darlene: Yeah, I want to take a break now though.

Clark: To write?

One track mind, that boy.

Screenshot-1672

Clark: Hey, what were those chimes?

Darlene: Oh, don’t worry about it.

Screenshot-1673

Dewey: What the hell? I max out athletic and I die before my sedentary wife?

Screenshot-1677

Death: TELL ME ABOUT IT. MY WIFE DIDN’T EVEN CLEAN MY ROBES SO I HAD TO BORROW THIS CRUMMY OUTFIT FROM STEVE IRWIN.

Dewey: Is that the hole from the Manta Ray?

Screenshot-1679

Dewey gets buried next to his in-laws, so he too can pop in uninvited at night to play video games.

Screenshot-1680

For those of you who still haven’t gotten what Darlene’s up to, here’s a gratuitous vomit pic!

Screenshot-1684

Darlene: Must keep in shape…

Right, can’t afford to lose those attractive Bunch looks.

Screenshot-1687

B. S.: Crap, this is not happening! Where’d I put that death flower?

Death flower? What Death flower?

Screenshot-1690

Death: THANKS FOR THE FLOWERS, I NEED THIS TO MAKE UP FOR MY WIFE. AFTER THE STEVE IRWIN INCIDENT I SAID SOME… UNWISE THINGS AND NOW I HAVE TO WEAR THIS.

B. S.: Alright! I’m almost 20 days younger now!

This was so unplanned, I still can’t remember where she found that flower. In fact, I’m pretty sure it was still in seed form.

Screenshot-1691

So Beef not only holds on long enough to see her grandchild, she’ll see him live into Teenager.

Darlene: It’s going to be a boy? SPOILERS!

You were only 2 seconds away from finding out, please.

Screenshot-1694

Darlene: His name’s Ethan. Can I eat him?

Um, please don’t.

Ethan is Easily Impressed and Hates the Outdoors.

Anyway, we named him Ethan because, true story, Ethan named his own daughter with Kaylynn “Darlene.” Which I thought was rather weird, but turnabout’s fair play.

See you next time!

Sergeant O’Leary is walkin’ the beat, at night he becomes a bartender.

Screenshot-1258

And that’s what he was doing when Harley the Mummy stole his patrol car.  Darn those kleptomaniac mummies!

Screenshot-1263

And meanwhile, Beef Supreme has backslid on her hiding skills.  And once again it’s the old people she’s spying on.

Old Man: What do you mean you don’t like Andy Griffith?

Screenshot-1270

Harley wins Teacher of the Year, probably cause he keeps the kids entertained after school.

Harley: It was a graveyard smash!

Screenshot-1272

Every morning Harley walks with the kids the mile from the house to the bus stop.

Screenshot-1273

And then the bus takes off, not bothering to wait for the mummy.  Haven’t we all had those days watching the bus pull away? I always felt they could see me and were laughing.

Screenshot-1276

Nothing scarier than a teacher in the library!

Screenshot-1284

Harley: I’m gonna catch that bus next time!

Screenshot-1294

Should I make this the last of the stakeout shots? They crack me up every time.

Harley’s sister: I think someone’s watching me.

Screenshot-1306

Last time I mentioned that Clark and Clarka both rolled Illustrious Author.  Well, so did Raging.

Screenshot-1307

And so did Clarkette.

Screenshot-1309

And so Clark gets to work as well.

Screenshot-1310

Clarka also gets to writing. Isn’t this exciting?

Screenshot-1312

This shot is only to show that J. J. aged up to adult.

J. J.: Aren’t you going to show what I look like after?

Really? You don’t get how this works by now? YOU LOOK THE SAME.

Screenshot-1315

J. J.: Well, I’m an adult now, so I have to get serious with my skilling.

Adults turn off their cell phones when they’re IN A LIBRARY.

Screenshot-1318

Dewey was working on his martial arts skills when he got a call to do a skill opportunity.

Screenshot-1319

Dewey: Get more strength? Piece of cake.

Screenshot-1320

Dewey: Easiest opportunity ever.

Screenshot-1323

Clarka decides for her first painting she was going to tackle the hugest canvas she could find.

Screenshot-1385

That’s kind of impressive.

Screenshot-1336

Beef finally tops off the Private Investigator career so the town holds a celebration in her honor.  Any words Beef?

B. S.: A SIMBOT!

Screenshot-1337

Luke: I JUST WANTED TO SAY CONGRATS:(

Screenshot-1339

J. J.: So, I know that you’re a mummy… but can you…

Screenshot-1340

Ew…

Screenshot-1343

LTW updates: Joey Jr. finally made it to the symphonic branch of her career.

J. J.: This dress is so lame.

Screenshot-1346

And Dewey maxed out athletic.

Screenshot-1352

Whatever happened to the Transylvanian Twist???

Screenshot-1354

Suddenly, the whole family upped and moved to Sunset Valley! You know what that means!

Yep, I had like 3 Error Code 12s.

Screenshot-1355

Clarka: Wow! The bus came right up to our mailbox!

Yes, this is what normal people do who don’t have to create their own lot. Good Riddance, Twinbrook.

Screenshot-1356

Clarka: I can’t believe I got a boy to take me to his house.

Screenshot-1357

Probably cause this boy and his family are weirder than you, Clarka.

Screenshot-1360

Clarka: How about if I don’t bathe and talk to myself?

OK, you win.

Screenshot-1361

Looks like Tamara Donner found the trampoline!

Screenshot-1362

See, I called her Tamara Donner instead of making up a name for her.

Screenshot-1363

That’s because I’ve played Sunset Valley QUITE a few times. So at least for a generation I won’t have to write names down.

Screenshot-1364

Um.  I should make sure she’s OK. I guess.

Screenshot-1367

Birthday time (AGAIN).

Screenshot-1369

Clark gets the trait Eccentric.

Clark: BEEP BEEP.

Yep, that’s pretty Eccentric.

Screenshot-1373

Clarka: This was such a special occasion, I took a bath.

Screenshot-1375

Congrats, Clarka, you are now Hot-Headed!

Clarka: SCREW YOU.

Screenshot-1376

Clarkette: Hope it’s chocolate for me!

Screenshot-1380

Clarkette rolls Lucky.

Clarkette: I sure don’t feel Lucky.

Screenshot-1382

Raging: Yes, we’re gonna have a party, party.

Screenshot-1384

Raging is now a bookworm. Do something Bookworm-y!

Raging: I’d rather eat cake.

Screenshot-1390

Beef goes out on a case and is surprised to see it’s Gurton! He moved as well.

Gurton: Good luck movin’ up cause I’m…. movin’ out!

Screenshot-1393

B. S.: I don’t know why I’m bothering to dust for prints, it’s obvious that no-good roommate of his, Luke, did it.

Screenshot-1397

Dewey: Watch me break this space rock.

OK.  (The screenshot I’ll get of him breaking his hand will be hilarious.)

Screenshot-1400

Dewey: Hai-yah!

Darn.

Screenshot-1403

Clarkette: Hey, next time you’re using the “soften terrain” tool, make sure you don’t have moveobjects on, genius.

Why?

Screenshot-1401

Clarkette: I CAN’T MOVE!

Oops.

Screenshot-1405

The good news is Beefy got an award for solving her last case. The bad news is she lost a whole lot of friends in the move, so she’s got to earn her charisma challenge rewards all over again.

Screenshot-1406

B. S.: Do you realize that everyone you know will someday die?

Yeah, this is going to take awhile.

Screenshot-1411

Harley: WOOLY BULLY…. WOOLY BULLY!

Screenshot-1412

Raging: Ugh, Dad, you’re a real jerk sometimes.

Screenshot-1413

Harley: Principal.  PRINCIPALLLLL!

Raging: I know Dad, I know.

J. J.: Let’s make this dual guitars!

Someone’s not getting any sleep tonight.

Screenshot-1417

B. S.: Thanks for inviting me over, Pauline. I’ve been looking forward to seeing this movie tonight.

Screenshot-1419

Pauline: My TV is broken.

B. S.: Your TV is broken?

Pauline: My TV is broken.

Screenshot-1422

B. S.: Let me give fixing this a shot.

Pauline: GO GO ELECTROCUTION!

B. S.: What?

Pauline: Nothing.

Screenshot-1423

B. S.: Dammit, the movie’s over. Hey where’s Pauline?

Hank: She had to go. Hey, have you seen Sergeant O’Leary’s car?

OK, I was able to recover from seeing that simbot. Sorry. Anyway, we last left the Breckman family in Egypt.

Screenshot-746

Joey Jr.: Walk like an Egyptian…

Beef Supreme: Interesting acoustic cover.

Screenshot-749

The girls then decided to go help out the locals by answering their ads on the adventure board. Just like last time. And every time sims go to Al Simhara. You know the drill.

B. S.: This place is a dump.

Screenshot-751

B. S.: One of these days I’m gonna regret shoving my arm in random holes.

Probably because it’ll get stuck.

Screenshot-752

B. S.: This is SOOO normal. Everybody’s house has a “stick your hand in the hole” basement stairs.

Screenshot-754

Adventuring went a little easier this time with both the girls in action.

Screenshot-756

J. J.: *pant* Wouldn’t it be better *pant* to get the boys to help out instead?

Probably, but I’m kicking them out ASAP, so you better get used to it now.

Screenshot-760

And in no time at all, Beefy had finished off the tomb, finding the lady’s … papers or whatever.

B. S.: You really should start reading quest descriptions.

I never have before, why start now?

Screenshot-764

I’m just going to make up my own.

Fat Storekeeper: Fetch me some copper, and I will give you whatever you want.

B. S.: TURKEY LEG!

Screenshot-766

Looks like she’s gotten right on it.

Screenshot-767

Or maybe she just went to bed.

Screenshot-769

Gurton: I got to get this copper again why?

Screenshot-770

Monk: I don’t know, Beef said we had to, but I figured it was the best way to get us screen time. We get ignored more than Luke.

Screenshot-771

Meanwhile, Luke’s gone off to see the sights.

Screenshot-772

Can you find Luke?

Screenshot-773

There he is! Looks like he’s nonplussed by the Sphinx.Screenshot-775

I wonder how ancient Sims built all this, and if this is zoned Commercial, Residential, or Industrial.

Screenshot-778

Impressive.

Screenshot-779

Luke: Meh.

Screenshot-781

And this completes Luke’s Tomb Tour opportunity.

Screenshot-780

Luke: Thank God, this running all over was like getting a tooth drilled.

Screenshot-776

B. S.: I can haz turkey leg?

Fat Shopkeeper: Next I need mummitonium!

If you didn’t know, this stuff takes a while to find, so we let Joey Jr. have a few opportunities now.

Screenshot-783

Another Egyptian Whose Name I Did Not Write Down: Hello, ma’am. I bought a house from a crazy Egyptian booby trap inventor. Could you please go down in my basement and make it less dangerous?

J. J.: Sure why not.

Screenshot-785

J. J.: This is the part where I show how easy it is, and then you cut to me on fire, right?

Screenshot-786

If you insist.

Screenshot-788

Yeah, I really like the four arms are better than two approach.

Screenshot-791

So Beef Supreme had jumped in that dive well in the last picture, and was dripping water everywhere, and apparently the home owner felt the urge to come all the way down to mop it up. I was too surprised to catch her in action.

Screenshot-793

*disarms trap*

Screenshot-794

*disarms trap*

Screenshot-796

*disarms…*

B. S.: I AM SO TIRED, WHEN THE HECK IS JOEY JR. GONNA CARRY HER LOAD?

Screenshot-800

Gurton: She talked me into taking over, does that count?

Not really.

Screenshot-802

J. J.: I disarmed all your traps!

Sure you did.

Screenshot-803

B. S.: I found the last mummitonium in the store. I can haz turkey leg?

Nope, we’re going to another tomb.

Screenshot-805

J. J.: You know when you told me we’d be tomb exploring in Egypt, I thought they’d be in pyramids, not people’s bike sheds.

B. S.: Tell me about it.

Screenshot-810

B. S.: Why is it always me getting burned/shocked/maimed?

J. J.: Cause I’m the pretty one.

Screenshot-813

B. S.: Yep, best place to find ancient Egyptian relics is in underground office buildings.

Screenshot-815

B. S.: Wait a minute, that PC is broken.

Screenshot-814

B. S.: Hello, tech support?

Screenshot-818

OK, OK, I’ll buy the fire traps, lightning traps, and ancient artifacts in secret underground office lairs, but instant technical support is WAY too fantastic for me.

Screenshot-819

Kids love playing in tombs! They were still there when Beef and Joey left hours later.

Screenshot-821

In fact, Beef even took a few hours off for a nap.

Homeowner: This is VERY inappropriate.

Screenshot-822

Hush, she bought you a fish for your secret underground office lair.

Screenshot-824

Then she hacked your computer.

Screenshot-825

J. J.: I’m too tired for another tomb, and I don’t even have a tent.

Don’t worry I sent Luke to buy you one. I don’t know what’s taking so long.

Screenshot-826

Luke: I would like to buy…

Shopkeeper: A SIMBOT

*take two*

Luke: I would like..

Shopkeeper: A SIMBOT

*take three*

Shopkeeper: A SIMBOT

I eventually got the tent, but I’m about done with Luke.

Screenshot-827

Here’s a few shots you didn’t really need to see.

Screenshot-828

It’s swimsuit model, Beef Supreme!

Screenshot-832

Ain’t she smokin’ hot?

Screenshot-834

Joey Jr. is hydrophobic, so she calls it quits on this tomb.

Sorry J. J. backed out on you.

B. S.: That’s OK, I’d probably be the one on fire and covered in bugs even if she was still helping.

Screenshot-845

Of course, time expired before we could finish up the pyramid. So as soon as we got home B. S. showed off her snake charming skills in the middle of the road.

Screenshot-850

This is the coolest thing I’ve ever found in WA.  I make Luke sleep in it.

Screenshot-854

Remember Dewey Kent? B. S. finally confessed her love for him.

B. S.: I know you have a girlfriend, but will you dump her for me?

Dewey: OK.

Screenshot-857

I wonder what his girlfriend looked like.

Screenshot-860

B. S.: I forgive you for calling the cops on me.

Dewey: I have to work now, kthxbye.

And then he left before I could get them to be steady.

Screenshot-863

Bald lady: I’m gonna sue for leaving this trampoline for people to get hurt on!

You need to sue your stylist first.

Screenshot-865

Joey Jr. makes her own moves on Harley Bull.

Screenshot-866

J. J.: Let’s make out.

Harley: Uh huh, I’m dating Tiana.

Screenshot-868

J. J.: How about you move in then, best friend? Totally, just as friends.

Harley: Well, that’s OK.

Screenshot-870

After moving in Harley suddenly was no longer adverse to cheating on Tiana. Funny how that works.

Screenshot-871

But his romantic moves on J. J. still were unfruitful because…

Harley: AH A SIMBOT!

Luke has become my biggest mistake simming.

Screenshot-872

Luke: EVERYONE HATES ME.

Screenshot-873

Yeah, I’m not shedding a tear. (Don’t worry, he’s not dead.)

Screenshot-875

Finally the two lovebirds get alone time.

Screenshot-876

Joey seems to gotten farther with Harley than Beefy’s gotten with Dewey.

J. J.: Love’s not a competition, but I’m winning.

Screenshot-877

J. J.: Do you know what I’ve been thinking?

Harley: I lay back and think of England.

J. J.: Do you know the real answer?

Harley: I was born to be a dancer.

OK, it makes no sense, but with Harley’s shirt I couldn’t resist.

Screenshot-883

Oh, it’s cake time again! Bet you thought you’d get off lucky this time.

Screenshot-885

Monk’s finally a Young Adult. He gets Mooch to go with his other traits, which don’t matter cause I instantly kicked him out and let him take Luke with him. Sucks to be a spare Monk.

He and Luke instantly applied for jobs at the science lab, and maybe Monk will get his LTW to be a Creature Robot Crossbreeder. Luke wanted to save lives as a firefighter, so much for that.

Screenshot-886

J. J.: Why are you talking about their jobs? I got a job in the music career, and I still live here!

Sorry. They kept having the party after the birthday boy left, which amused me.

Screenshot-887

J. J.: You need to dump Tiana.

Screenshot-888

Harley: Come in Tiana!

Screenshot-889

Harley: Tiana, this is my friend Joey.

Screenshot-890

Tiana: I suspect something is going on here.

Screenshot-891

*gets ready to have the loudest woohoo ever*

Screenshot-892

Tiana: I think you are cheating on me.

Screenshot-893

Harley; I have been cheating on you.

Screenshot-894

Harley: Oh wait, here’s “break up.” It was under mean. I guess I should have looked there first before doing all that cheating stuff. Oopsie.

Screenshot-895

Now unattached, the foursome double-dates in the nursery.

Screenshot-897

Harley and B. S.: Will you marry me?

Screenshot-901

J. J. and Dewey: Yes!

Next time: A wedding, and Gurton (hopefully) moves out!  And probably more Egypt, since Relic Hunting takes a long time.

So, Andy is now dead, and Beef Supreme is running things.

Screenshot-640

Rough day, huh?

B. S.: Well, I was visiting the graveyard because I had to get rid of that grave belonging to that weirdo who died on our trampoline, when I decided to explore the mausoleum. So, I go in there, and I get mauled by a bear.

A bear? In a mausoleum?

B. S.: Yeah, I think he was entombed with some circus performers or something.

And he had a flamethrower?

B.S.: Apparently!

Screenshot-642

B. S.: Why, oh why, did I agree to eat poisoned food just to get some apples? Am I stupid or something? Blech.

Screenshot-643

As the new heir, B. S. decides to work on her basic skills, beginning with charisma.

B. S.: When meeting new people, it is best not to fart until you have a relationship of at least “Good Friend.”  This book is so helpful.

Screenshot-644

Then, she begins working on her life time wish, which is get $20,000 worth of relics.

B. S.: Al Simhara airlines? I was wondering if you gave a discount for mummies? No? How about I just curse you then?

Screenshot-645

Can’t you do that at home?

B. S.: Shhhh! I’m almost done with Murder in Pleasantview.

The repoman did it.

B. S.: Curse you.

Screenshot-646

B. S.: Oh boy, my first Egyptian Tomb. I can’t wait.  I wonder if it’ll be a pyramid, or the Great Sphinx, or have huge pillars, or statues…

Screenshot-647

B. S.: Or look like a woodshed from back home. *sigh*

Screenshot-648

B. S.: Is this a tomb, or someone’s wine cellar?? Oh well… *helps self to a couple thousand simoleons worth of nectar*

Screenshot-649

And so Beef Supreme finishes the “tomb” and retrieves the papers for her new Egyptian acquaintance.

Screenshot-650

B. S.: Here’s your papers, lady, and how about you keep your exciting adventures to yourself from now on.

Screenshot-651

Back to the board Beef runs hoping to find an adventure more worthy of her time.

Screenshot-652

Rock collecting! I used to LOVE doing that!

B. S.: When you were EIGHT!

Well, yeah.

Screenshot-656

B. S.: Here’s your rocks lady. If the next “adventure” is lame, I’m so going to punch someone.

Screenshot-658

B. S.: Fetching flame fruit in the Tomb of Burning Sands, that’s more like it.

Screenshot-660

B. S.: I spoke too soon, this tomb is easily boring too.

You’re on fire.

B. S.: I know, it’s easy.

Screenshot-661

No, you’re on FIRE.

Screenshot-662

B. S.: OMG, I’m on fire!

Screenshot-665

B. S.: Here we go, a dive well.

A bit late, but OK.

Screenshot-668

B. S.: These treasures looked a lot cooler in the Indiana Jones movies.  I didn’t even turn into a melty skeleton or anything.

Why would you want to?

Screenshot-672

B. S.: It’s times like this I really miss Luke.

Screenshot-677

B. S.: How are these Egyptians supposed to be so advanced if they can’t even invent THE DOORKNOB?

Screenshot-678

B. S.: I think I’m getting the hang of this..

Um, you might want to avoid those holes.

Screenshot-680

B. S.: You know, I should just make this my everyday outfit. At least I don’t have Mummy Face with it on.

Screenshot-683

B. S.: Another case where the movies lied to me. Where’s my arm covered with scorpions?

Once again, Why would you want that?

Screenshot-684

If I did cover shots, this is where I’d put the title one. But I’m not going to, so never mind.

Screenshot-692

B. S.: Hellooooo anyone home?

Screenshot-695

B. S.: I’d rather be fishing.

No you wouldn’t.

B. S.: I’m just thinking up lame t-shirts I could sell.

Screenshot-698

B. S.: Awesome! It’s the suitcase from Pulp Fiction!

Screenshot-700

B. S.: I’m pretty tired, is it safe for me to take a break here?

Seems fine to me.

Screenshot-701

Perfectly fine to me.

Screenshot-702

B. S.: Ummm. I’m a Mummy too?

Screenshot-703

Yeah, he didn’t buy that.

Screenshot-706

So Beef got the “fully explored tomb” wish fulfilled, but all I see is a lot of empty space.

Screenshot-709

B. S.: Here’s that flame fruit you wanted me to get.

Rude Egyptian: You are fat, work out more.

B. S.: AND YOU’RE WELCOME.

Screenshot-716

Back at home, Beef adds a few small things to her LTW.  Obviously it’s going to take awhile.

Screenshot-717

The disk wasn’t even from this trip, It’s from when Andy went. So that brings us to a grand total of 4 relics this trip.

Screenshot-724

To kill time between adventures, Beef takes up photography, and gets the self-employed job to go with it.

Screenshot-725

We missed you Joey!

Joey: Shh, I almost got a level.

Screenshot-729

Oh God no, not a birthday!

Joey Jr.: I bet you thought you were home free this time.

Kinda, yeah.

Screenshot-733

J. J.: MWAHAHAHA, too bad!

Screenshot-734

Joey Jr. gets her final trait, Hopeless Romantic, to add to Virtuoso, Easily Impressed, Good, and Hydrophobic.  Her LTW is to become a Hit Movie Composer.

Screenshot-737

Do I want to ask Luke why he’s hanging out at the school?  No, no I don’t.

Screenshot-740

I sent Joey Jr. to go get a job in the music career, and when I came back to see her doing this, I thought she had, and then let her play for tips until she felt like coming home. I realized later that I never got the “Accept this job?” pop up. Doh.

Screenshot-745

Well, what do you know, two days go by pretty fast, so we’re back in Egypt.  Next time, the whole family gets involved! Or just stays at base camp annoying fellow tourists, who knows.

I decided not to feed Gurton, so he’s dead now.

Screenshot-442

Andy: No, he’s not, he’s right here!

OK, so I’m a little evil.

Joey Jr. joins her big (literally) sister in childhood by aging up like this:

Screenshot-443 Screenshot-444 Screenshot-445

To go along with Virtuoso and Easily Impressed, J. J. becomes Good.

J. J.: Just great.

Screenshot-440

The kids moving out of the nursery means it’s time to make the house bigger.

Screenshot-449

J. J.: This trampoline is AWESOME!

Screenshot-452

J. J.: NO WAIT IT’S NOT!

Screenshot-453

Poor girl.

Screenshot-454

So the girls go to bed in their brand new rooms.

Screenshot-455

Where Beef Supreme no longer has to worry about being woken by her screaming brothers.

Screenshot-456

Monk: I am NOT screaming, I am watching TV!

The history channel? Odd choice for a kid.

Screenshot-459

B. S.: I made a house.

Well, that’s more symmetrical than your dad’s.

Screenshot-467

J. J. invites Dewey Kent over after school, and the kids make their first friend.

J. J.: Let’s play tag!

Screenshot-469

B. S.: Tag’s not really my thing…

Screenshot-470

J. J.: Keep up!

B. S.: *dies*

Screenshot-472

It’s Monk’s birthday!

Andy: Happy Birthday, the dishwasher’s broken, happy birthday the dishwasher’s broken, happy birthday, dishes are dirty, happy birthday the dishwasher’s broken.

OK, I’ll call the repairman.

Screenshot-475

Monk: My hair is gone! And I’m now Neat.

Just like his TV namesake. He’s also Friendly, and Loves the Outdoors.

Screenshot-482

And then they all went to play tag again.

Screenshot-483

And Beef Supreme apparently likes to chase girls.  She’s a girl too, in case you forgot. I know I have.

Screenshot-489

Monk: Since all my dad does is just paint all the time, I guess I have to clean up around here. POOP IN A CHAIR. UGH.

Andy: I’m making paintings for the family to sell when I’m gone. You’ll thank me later.

Monk: THAT’S MY LINE!

Screenshot-491

It’s always someone’s birthday in the Breckman household.

B. S.: I wish I looked like a girl.

Screenshot-495

B. S.: CAN IT GET ANY WORSE??

Just wait until adulthood! (Evil foreshadowing)

Anyway, to join her traits of Slob, Perceptive, Easily Impressed, she’s now Excitable.

Screenshot-496

B. S.: Luke, am I pretty?

Luke: HI I AM THE SIMBOT THAT HAS BEEN HERE SINCE, I DONT KNOW, THE BEGINNING OF THE CHAPTER.

Yeah, I forgot to introduce him. I don’t like him much.

Luke: I HEARD THAT.

So? I’m going to just talk about Andy, and pretend you don’t exist.

Screenshot-501

Andy: I’m pregnant!

Sometimes it’s just food poisoning, Andy.

Luke: PLEASE TALK ABOUT ME, I AM SAD.

Screenshot-508

OK, fine. So Luke got an opportunity to fix this lady’s shower.

Screenshot-511

Luke: HERE IS YOUR SHOWER LADY, CAN I STAY THE NIGHT? I AM TIRED.

Lady: I don’t really know you, so no.

Screenshot-513

Luke: LUKE SMASH!

Screenshot-514

Pleasant little fellow, isn’t he.

Screenshot-515

Home owner: Please leave.

Screenshot-516

Gurton: Hi! It’s my birthday!

Screenshot-517

Gurton: Oh yeah, I look good.

Gurton adds Light Sleeper to Athletic and Perceptive.

Screenshot-518

And so the family sits down to eat their favorite (only?) dinner.

B. S.: I’m on my third piece.

Screenshot-523

Video game time!

Monk: Why do we have wedding cake in our living room?

Because your dad is crazy.

Screenshot-532

And more birthday cake!

J. J.: How many more times do we have to do this?

Too many.

Screenshot-535

OK, this time is different.

Andy: Shiny.

B. S.: Not impressed.

Screenshot-541

Take two.

J. J.: You know, when I was a child, being in my pjs wasn’t as awkward.

Joey: I CAN SEE YOUR UNDERWEAR.

Anyway, now Joey’s Hydrophobic.

Screenshot-549

Luke seems to be getting along with the family.

Screenshot-551

Or not.

Luke: I WONDER IF I SHALL HIT HIM WITH THIS WRENCH.

Screenshot-556

I decided Luke needed a hobby.

Screenshot-554

Gurton: This whale is so cool! Thanks, Luke!

Screenshot-565

Now that the teens are older, they go over to other houses to make new friends.

J. J.: I see you have a guitar.

Screenshot-561

J. J.: You get great acoustics in the bathroom.

Well one day Bill was walking along
And he saw a kitten stuck in a tree
When he saw what was the matter he ran to get a ladder
To set that kitty cat free
Bill said no, ain’t gonna do it
Ain’t gonna climb up no tree
This is a stupid stupid song and no folk singer
Gonna make a fool outa me

Screenshot-566

Beef Supreme had a little less luck making friends.

Dewey’s mom: I’m about to hit this sack, when will this girl leave?

Screenshot-568

B. S. works up enough courage to hug Dewey, but she really wants to kiss him.

Screenshot-569

B. S.: Dewey, I just want you to know…

Dewey: It’s late, I think you should leave.

Screenshot-570

B. S.: Can my night get any worse?

Screenshot-572

Yeah, you could get arrested for breaking curfew.

Screenshot-574

Let’s have another birthday, it’s been a whole ELEVEN screen shots since the last one.

Screenshot-575

Monk is now also Frugal.

Monk: I wish my sister would put some pants on.

Screenshot-580

Oh, yeah. Gonna have to agree with Monk on this one.

Screenshot-591

You know we’re one birthday away from tying last time’s entry.

Gurton: Don’t I look good?

Screenshot-597

Gurton: Oh, yeah, I’m handsome.

Screenshot-599

Gurton: Must… work.. out.. so… not… to… look… like… Beef… Supreme…

Screenshot-601

B. S.: Thanks dad for spending your rewards points on this!

Screenshot-602

Gurton: Looking good, sis. You know you have to work out to keep that, right?

B. S.: Ugh, I knew there was a catch.

Screenshot-616

One day, while painting…

Andy: Oh crap.

Screenshot-620

The whole family mourns Andy at a weird, but spooky angle.

Death: I WAS GOING TO USE THE ALL CAPS THING, BUT LUKE STOLE IT FROM ME.

Joey: Oh well, at least I’ll get a ton of cash for his paintings at the consignment store.

Screenshot-622

Joey: Oh crap.

I guess Luke will have to sell them instead.

Andy was 96 days old, and Joey was 90.

Screenshot-623

Death: DO YOU LIKE MY OUTFIT?

Joey: No, not really.

Screenshot-637

And so Andy and Joey were buried under a willow tree.

Screenshot-638

Sorry Joey, I never got around to fulfilling your LTW.

Screenshot-624

B. S.: Worst birthday ever.

Screenshot-625

J. J.: Sorry I’m late, did I miss anything?

B. S.: Ow.

Screenshot-629

B. S.: OH MY GOD ARE YOU SHITTING ME. NOT ONLY DID MY PARENTS BOTH DIE ON MY BIRTHDAY, BUT I AM A MUMMY???

At least you got to be the heir.

B. S.: Only because you decided before I was born, the first born would always be the heir!

True.

Screenshot-630

B. S.: F this, I’m going to go eat cake. AGAIN.

Oh, yeah, you’re now a Vegetarian.

B. S.: *grumbles*

And so concludes…

Death: WAIT…

Screenshot-636

Death: I AM IN YOUR YARD, KILLING YOUR NEIGHBORS LOL OMG WTF.

Just leave already.
