Ch. 10: Lean, Mean and Green

Just to let you know, there will soon be a poll for the heir of Generation 4 -- as soon as my blogging has caught up to that part of the story, that is. Bear with me a little longer if you can. Soon you can help put the madness to an end by helping me decide who is the ugliest - a spawn of Fulton or a spawn of Garridan.

Back to our story: Joe Carr is here to introduce Chapter 10.

Uh, Joe?

"Oh, um... what?"

Just kidding, Joe. Go back to your smustling attempt. After all, it is costing you $27 an hour. Make the most of that, LOL.

Sims are so gullible.

Ch. 9 The Heirship Is Up in the Air

I apologize for the lack of updates. My unreliable internet connection has made blogging very difficult. I finally got a modem upgrade a few days ago, and so far things are much better.

Now back to the ugliness if you dare look...

Winter is a time of fertility... at least it is here at the Thayer house. Both Marisa and Sandy are expecting. I could never pick an heir for Generation 3 between Fulton and Garridan. They were just so flipping ugly -- each in his own special way. So I decided I will pick the ugliest heir of the 4th Generation. Fulton and Garridan will share the title of heir until such a time as I have decided on the ugliest of their children.

"Booga, Booga!" Meadow must be trying to send Fulton a message to eat more fruit.

Somehow I doubt regularity is a problem for Fulton at the moment.

Ch. 8: Obfuscate

I really like Blair, but I decided to have him move in with Beverley and Phoenix to make room for the heir's spouse and future children. Sorry, Blair.

So do you think I decided yet? Who do you think the heir will be?

Now would be a good time to show you Fulton and Garridan's Lifetime Wants. At least they both have reasonable goals. This will give them a much better chance of dying of old age. ;)

Not that it really matters, but Rose had a want to get a gold badge in robotics, and she fulfilled it.

Ch. 7 Face It, They're Ugly

Have I mentioned how much I love the SentryBot? Gosh, I love it! I bought several tempting gnomes just so I could watch the constant zapping.

Fulton reached his teens, and I must say I am impressed, or at least I was impressed until he did this to me:

Ch. 6: Woohoo, A Vacation!

I really like the astronaut uniform, although I only got to see it for one day this time. Ackerley got promoted to General on his second day in the military. To celebrate, I've decided to have the family go on a vacation.

Ahh, who am I kidding? I want to let Meadow and Russ have a little more time together before they die.

The twins finished their homework right after school so they wouldn't have to worry about it when they got home from vacation. Now they're making up for their loss of fun. Wow, look at those faces! I am loving these two. I have a feeling it will be very hard to choose an heir this generation.

Ch. 5: Who said twinzrcute?

Seeing Marsha Bruenig always brings up feelings of dread in me. Sooner or later every simmer is doomed to countless calls from Marsha or some similar sim-stalker in their game who is determined to be BFFs with everyone. Fortunately, she has not yet met anyone in the Thayer family, but it is inevitable, isn't it? I think she's circling the block. I'm not looking forward to the day when one of the sim kids brings her home as a "friend" from school. I don't think I'm just going to tolerate her this time around. Most of the Thayer kids are Scorpios with 1 nice point, so I'm pretty sure they can make enemies with her if she gets annoying. Angry sim kids don't kick over the trash can, do they?

Darcie thought about being ugly as a child, but she's not that bad-looking as a teen. A new hairstyle, some makeup, and a non-Bruty shirt would go a long way for her. Bummer.

Ch. 4: A Rose By Any Other Name...

A Rose by any other name... would make more sense, as roses are supposed to be pretty, and this one definitely isn't. As you can see, Ackerley is the Generation 2 heir (a big surprise I'm sure, as I really built up a lot of doubt in that last chapter), and he has kissed and made up with Rose. Rose has moved in with $3000.

Ch. 3 Gen. 2 Teens and College

Once I was able to pry Ackerley out of the picture, I was able to see that Beverly is still not UGG-worthy as a teen. She has a bit of a large nose and an odd chin, but is a normal decent-looking teen.

Ch. 2: Spawn of Meadow

I decided Meadow needed a little makeup to make her look older than 14. Without any custom content, this will have to do.

Gen. 1 Spouse: Russ Bear

Personality: Aquarius (9-8-7-3-4)
Turn-ons: Formal Wear & Blond Hair
Turnoff: Gray Hair

My UGG Legacy is an "Uglacy", an idea started by the brilliant Candi020765 who wrote the must-read Uglacy and Prettacy Legacy stories. In 10 generations I would like to see how ugly I can get Meadow's descendants to be. Love her or hate her, if you play The Sims 2, chances are she has broken the heart of at least one of your teen sims. Hopefully I will be able to breed in the worst Maxis/EAaxis-template traits and by generation 10 you will really be able to say, "UGG!"

My wonderful husband just bought me a brand new computer (Dell Inspiron 530 if you care to know), so I have not yet cluttered it up with a ton of custom content. I'm thinking for this legacy I will leave out most of the CC, since it is an Uglacy. It would seem contradictory to add pretty face replacement templates, skins, eyes, hair, clothes -- you get the idea.
