here it is. the kids

here it is. the kids are in green, relationships are red lines between people. I realized, as I was doing this, that all the relationships, except for Eileen & Lisa, are romances. not sure what that means.

once again, I’ve wasted an

once again, I’ve wasted an entire evening playing the Sims. not much time with Jason/Emily/Eileen tonight – I booted the Fam family (single mom w/2 kids) and started up 2 separate households, both single women. Roberta Smith (hint: she has wild black hair, dresses all in black, and is a hypnotist) and Cheryl Shapely. I made Cheryl super-neat, super-active, and hardly at all nice. result? she is a total bitch. she actually insulted Frankie (? I can’t tell him & Homer apart, except for the clothes) and tried VOODOO on Sylvia Marie, which got her slapped. oh, and she drinks like a fish and laughs at horror movies. great, huh? Roberta is fun too – she & Homer are having a wild affair, and I’ve actually managed to get her a pretty nice pad without using the cheat at all.

this is how into it I am – I made a chart with all the doings of my main neighborhood. oh, except I just realized that I forgot Joan!

I looked out the window

I looked out the window – it’s raining! (yeah, big surprise.)

need to get rid of these damn jelly beans. I get to this part of the day, and I have the most god-aweful sugar high.

should water my plants.

what am I going to do when I have another person here?!

oh, time for a Sims

oh, time for a Sims update, too. Eileen has an A+ average on her report card, and she’s made friends with little Lisa Simpson. one of the genie’s wishes actually turned out to be worth something – Jason made friends with Joey, and then they fell in love. of course, he also seduced Frankie later that same evening. and he continues his affair with Jane, and is still madly in love with Emily. what a devil! (meanwhile, Emily continues to juggle both Jane and Joan.) Jason got promoted again, too; now he’s an Internet Entrepreneur (sp?!), with venture capital & everything. let’s just hope he doesn’t blow it!

I’m playing around with a new design. fairly simple, but with a weird palette. it’s always such an arduous experience to overhaul my site, but at the same time I really enjoy it. must be masochistic or something. 🙂 but it keeps my brain fresh, too.

this morning I was walking

this morning I was walking through the block of portables, and as I came out on the north side, I saw 3-5 little birds with black heads tumble out of a tree, twittering wildly, then take off, flying in swoops and swirls. I wish I’d had a camera.

yes, it is spring. despite – or because of – the clouds and rain, the air is mild and all the trees are leafing out.
