Will someone please tell me what the heck an aspiration level 'Black Sheep'
means?
Poor (no longer General) Mr Buzz has gone into a bright red decline since
Brandi was zombiefied by Loki (and now has become his willing slave)

I think he has thrown off the fetters of the military with a vengeance.
Lifetime aspiration is to have 20 best friends and wants to be a black
sheep? This.. This does NOT sound like the needs of a responsible familly
man to me. 8(

What to do? Attempt to reform him with the love of a good woman or let him
have his way? Catherine Runaway is hanging about doing nothing but mooning
over Mr Logical so perhaps it is a good time for her to give up and look
elsewhere. (boy, that Simpe is dead handy for turning out anti-social Sims)

Granny - first time i have looked at the game for a bit and am miffed. What
DOES go on behind our backs?

I have never seen that one. I though that black sheep was a family sim with
low aspiration score, but then again I thought that Milhouse was a surname,
so . . . .

Change, all is change.
Poor ex-general Buzz Grunt, after coming back from a quick trip to the Grot
Shop, where I was delighted to see Catherine Runaway slogging her trotters
off on the running machine.. Well he came back home and had a small nervous
breakdown. Not my idea to start off with but when he started crying it was
too good to miss.
The flying psychiatrist soon set him straight.

He now sees what he should do. Forget Brandi, she is lorst and gorn, and
besides, who wants to cuddle up to a zombie? Apart from the fell Loki, that
is.
So... He contacted social services and put a jolly good case to have her two
youngest come and live with his two boys for the duration. Dustin being
already at uni.

It took me ages to tombstone the new baby into the Grunt house me forgetting
what I had called the brat. He turned out to be Blight Broke. Named by his
mother when she was in the depths of depression. Fancy.
Both toddler and child moved in and got a quota of cuddles. The Gen's own
boys not seeming at all surprised to find the household augmented by two
when they got home from school. Considering his youngest and that Beau Broke
are alike as two peas in a pod, I already have my suspicions about the
general and Brandi. Which is a good reason for him to call the boy to him, I
suppose and explains why social services let the boys go off to a single man
who just had the twitching-gibbers.

Now I have to un-camouflage the gen's house, build an extension to the
bedrooms for the two children who are suddenly the same age (bit of a
swinger, our general) Buy toys and toddler trainers and all that jazz.

During lunch, cooked by the excellent Rip, who is well on his way to being a
chef, Catherine Runaway came a-calling (ZAP!) and took over baby cuddling
(can't get her to feed and change the brat, drat it) Both Grunt boys had
brought friends home from school and it was CHAOS in the kitchen.
Last seen The general managed to run away and play on the swing while I
wasn;t looking. Catherine is clearing up dishes; Rip is feeding the toddler
and the two children are playing cops and robbers.

That lass had better watch out. I have a terrible feeling she will be
staying the night and might not even manage to escape back to her little
hidy-hole at all. No doubt Genral Buzz is making plans as he swings, which
says it all.

I rather like the ex-general. The poor man has had his mood swing violently
over the last few days as his world tumbled about him. He came to live here
hoping his sons would meet a nicer class of people. I must introduce them
children to Bart and Millhouse. 8)))

And his lifetime aspiration is now marrying off three children. A much nicer
option I think.
Poor guy. I think he deserves a bit of woo-hoo, but not of the mercy
variety. I have yet to see what Catherine will say about it though.

Well. So much for being saved by the love of a good woman.
General Buzz went to work on Catherine and a bit of sweet talking soon had
little hearts flapping about in the breeze.
He invited her over, asked he to move in and they snogged their socks off on
the drive. Dis-graceful exhibition.
Then he told her the baby was upstairs, crying, the boys would soon be home
and wanting to be fed and if anyone needs him he will be on the swing.
Hum! To start off with Catherine wasn't very happy and after a night with
the General she went into a red decline. Goodness knows what the man did to
her but he did it again in the morning, twice, then went back to work with a
big grin on his face.

Unfortunately for these star-crossed lovers (or one lover and one dirty
beast) Catherine, who was really gloomy after a day of coping with Brandi's
last baby, now toddler, spotted Mr Logical walking past and dragged him in
to have a good moan. Sometimes this game surprises me. I mean, anyone could
have walked past, but no, it had to be him.
Moaning led to flirting led to one thing and another and what a pity it led
to kissy-kissy just as the general's helicopter threw him out. Shame that.
But what a hussy that Catherine turned out to be. And pretending to be such
a shy little thing, as well.
ANYway she wasn;t standing for a slapped face and moved out. Runaway back to
her little cottage in the woods.

The general went into a decline again. He wanted to talk to Brandi and I
wasn;t at all surprised so I had her phone him over to the Beakers and damn
me the bloody man got eaten by the cow plant. 8(((((
Now I was in a fix. Should i bring him back or let nature (oh my life... a
cow plant, nature?) let nature run it's course? bad enough that Brandi was
yowling over the tombstone but this brought Loki out at a mad gallop.
Yipeee! Something to play with!!
I had Brandi pick up the tombstone and carry it off, fastest to her room,
and heaven help Loki if he tries to snitch that from under her nose. The
dirty beast even went to beddy-byes in Brandi's bed that night, probably so
he could keep an eye on the urn.

What a madhouse. Loki wakes up in the morning and there is his wife and his
slave reading books on the bedroom sofa, an urn on a side-table, and now he
has to go to work and God only knows what those women will get up to behind
his back. (I haven;t decided yet)

Meanwhile the social worker came and took away the general's youngest (good
riddance), And brandi's Beau (awful child) and young Buster, who was
originally named Blight ( an awful little thug) . I dare say someone will
send a telegram to the older Grunt boys telling them their father has been
gobbled all up. That should improve their grades.

Let that be an awful lesson to all presumptious men who think they can move
a woman into the house just to look after someone else's kids. A woo-hoo a
day doesn;t keep the reaper away.

Granny.

Marvelous story! But I think if it had been me, I'd have quit without
saving right after the cow plant ate General Buzz. I've not tried even
looking at the cow plant yet.

Well I decided that if a Sim is stupid enough to try and grab the pie they
deserve all they get. I haven't worked the cow plant out yet. Why is a cow
plant? Sounds Zen.

You may wish to know that Loki couldn;t bring Buzzy back as he didn;t know
him so brandi waited until Loki and Circe had gone to work and brought him
back herself - on the cheap.
Being as she already has the hots for the shambling wreck it didn;t take
long to rekindle his interest.
They went on a spending spree together - Loki's money, and when he got back
to his little factory laboratory home he found, to his horror, a little cute
Tudor style house had appeared next to the lab. My, but it reeks class. The
most expensive of everything.

But... Circe is pregnant, just showing. Loki is annoyed at everything.
Brandi and Buzz are woo-hooing the happy hours away and I thought I would
try the 'make pregnant with' option on the Zombie Brandi. I don;t know what
will happen but they got the music. If anyone else has tried this let me
know.

And Catherine has found out about Buzz because a) she phoned up brandi, and
then Circe came visiting when Cath moved back into her little gideaway.
Damn me, after Gen buzz slapped her kisser AND she found out he is a zombie,
she now wants to get engaged to him - or Mr Logical, she isn;t fussy which.
That woman has problems. 8(
Perhaps I should make her a romance Sim so she can get all this flowery
business of homes, husbands and babies out of her head. She obviously isn;t
the flowery type after all.

Heck of a morning and husband mine is grumbling because he hasn;t any clean
vests.
Shame.

What's he want vests for? It's summer, I always take mine off at the end of
May. Tell him to cast his clouts.

I have suggested no-vests in the past but he went into some sort of strange
psychic fit. My man was born in the 1940s and has remained fixed there ever
since. You know the type.
men wear hair short, wear vests, wear hats, and wear women out yowling for
food.

But all sims are stupid! The words are almost synonymous, aren't they? And
I think the cow plant is patterned after "Little Shop of Horrors", though
they added the cow parts so one can "drink" the essense of one's friends.
Rather like "grokking" in Heinlein's world, I think.

Really? I think I married his twin. And here I was thinking I had the only
anachronistic man left in the world....
