Sims 3: George and Leeanix 2  
Happy New Years everyone. I'm just taking it easy today. It's a holiday so I'm not going to do much as far as chores. It's cold anyway. I'm going out with Chris's parents tonight to have a late Christmas. Good, just us and his mom and dad. I like small meetings like that. We'll be eating at Longhorns. Hum, I should bring my laptop and show them all the photos we took. I think those are still on my laptop.

Ok time for the next chapter of Sims. This game started out kind of slow but it got very good when Ophidius showed up. I was amazed what happened but it was in character and I was reminded why I would hate him if he were real. Also I am amazed how much Leeanix is like me. Not just physically. Chris said she was more like me than Des. Not sure how to take that. BTW, now that I have a widescreen I can make my pics a bit bigger. I post them at 700 width. Would anyone have a problem with that if you have a smaller monitor? I know some pics on LJ could get cut for me when they were too big. I couldn't see what was on the right. I'm thinking 800 might be good. I'd like to do 900 but that might be pushing it on the lower resolutions.

Leeanix bought a logic book and was reading it. Ursula sat down next to her. "What's that darling? Let Ursula know if you need help."

George checked his lunar horoscope. He's sad because he got a bad one.

Misfortune. Oh no. That got him all bent out of shape.

Of course nothing happened. I say he had a good night. He finally found Solan and they started working on their friendship. I may have Leeanix learn Alchemy so she can make friendship potions. Just like real life I have no patience for all this friend building through socialization. And these two are introverts.

Leeanix is so happy and easily amused. She's so different from George who's a grumpy sour puss. This was so cute. She's saying hello to the bugs. My gosh I do this in real life with animals too! I was rather surprised.

George broke the sink. Guess who had to fix it? BTW, George is a writer. He's also a technophobe and hates electronics. He's annoyed when he has to use the computer. Sorry George. I couldn't find a typewriter. Seriously. If the game had one I'd have bought it for him. And I purposely got him an old computer. To match the pretty 80's chair Leeanix wanted. Ok some things from the 80's sucked. Haha. This one even has floppy disk. ACK! Remember those A drives?

George roars angrily every time he's done.

Look at all his negative moodlets. All the stuff in the red. The second one was cause he was sick. The third one is for the bad horoscope. The fourth one is because he's a technophobe and just used the computer for his story. The first one being because his personality is naturally grumpy is funny. Now I always used to go out of my way to not let my other Sims have any red moods. But with George I don't bother to fix them. It's in character. Notice his meter is full though. He's one of those that's happiest when he's mad. He doesn't have to be a grouch but he chooses too. Just like real people. So I'm not going to help him. I love George but if he were real? I think I'd hate him. I would have no patience for him. Leeanix is a trooper. In that we're not the same. I don't know why she puts up with him...well they're the same kind. But yeah I couldn't.

Ursula at the summer festival not doing well on skates.

Ellie from Jurassic Park and Cope don't do much better.

Lucky from Stunt Dawgs walks by and goes, "Lucky it wasn't me. Coulda' been worse." Leeanix and Owen chat in the background. Their conversation started great but then everything Leeanix said to him was wrong. Owen's so cocky he's hard to please if you're not talking about how great he is.

George gets ready to cook. But he's thinking about home and how he misses it. I love how deeply sad he looks here. Very much in character. He's thinking about everything he lost.

Meanwhile Leenaix is two houses down picking up a light beetle. These look like caterpillars to me. The reason for the light is I gave her a perk that lets her find objects on the map. I have it set to insects. So whenever there's an insect this light shines so you can find them. Extremely helpful instead of sweeping over the map and zooming in and out like a satellite.

George reaches level 3 of cooking and I figured he was ready to move beyond the safe Autumn Salads. I let him try waffles.

But nope. He burned them. He's got a neat fridge though.

Look what comes out when you mouse over them. Horrifying! Haha. I had him do it again and this time he got Nice Quality. He learned from his mistake. Because he's a perfectionist, when he does make something right it's usually better than normal sims would do. He learns faster that way.

Leeanix had just come out of the science building and Ophidius happened to be in the area. He recognized her as George's friends and she's all alone! He figured he'd get George back so he goes up and starts talking nonsense and making scary faces. Basically being normal for Ophidius. "Why you hang out with that wierdo? I'm more fun like a disco ball. La la la."

Poor Leeanix! She was scared. But she tried to remember what George taught her. She's not a helpless girl but a tough centipede like him.

She roars at him and scares him back. Pretty effective. But you know these joker types. He keeps at it.

Well George sensed something was wrong. Look who just pulled up on his bike!

"What are you doing with my daughter?!" He roars. "Daughter?" Ophidius says realizing he's in for it. "That's the guy that scared me, George!" Leeanix eggs on. George slaps him silly and then...

Tackled! OOF! Btw, she's not his daughter but George sometimes refers to her that way.

While George puts a choke hold on Ophidius Leeanix notices Midnight, Jafar's horse. "Hey a horse!" And goes over to him.

But gosh, even after getting beat up Ophidius goes over and harasses her again. I was very shocked by this. What a creep. "So you're a bug like him huh? Will you end up as ugly as him, bug girl?" I had never seen poor Leeanix this pissed. She's always so happy.

George to the rescue again. Wow he looks like a bear. He's scary. You'd think Ophidius would learn his lesson now.

And look. A death stare on Leeanix. Too bad it's out of character but yeah that's just like me too.

"Leeanix, go home!" He orders. "I've got this bird face." She leaves.

At last Ophidius is defeated and humiliated. Even the stiff Robert Muldoon from Jurassic Park laughs at him. "Looser!"

George feels good and plays his guitar. He's calm after having trounced his enemy and defended his charge.

Lastly some funny gossip from Thanatos. Seems The Skipper from Gilligan's Island isn't a stiff at all but a party animal. Woo go Skipper! That really made me laugh.

I am laughing at the craziness already. hehe. Your games are always so much more interesting than mine. Leanix is so cute! ;)

Slith better learn his lesson and stay away. George is a sour puss just like I imagined him.

I look forward to more crazy adventures.

Well good. Yeah I don't know why almost any game I get a hold of such funny things happen.

Yeah he'd better leave Leeanix alone. Yep that's George.

I'll probably play again tonight.

Happy New Year! I hope you have a good time out with Chris's parents. It would be good to show them the photos. Chicken Itza would have been an awesome place, so much in it, so much to take in.

I'll look at your game stuff and comment again later. It's fairly early morning here and all I've had so far is a cup of herbal tea! ~

Thanks. Happy New Year. It was nice. It's still the old year over here and only 7:35pm!! I mentioned this on DA how we get the year last. Ok that's fine. I look forward to your comments once you have time.

Hehe it's good George appeared just in time. The horrifying waffles made me laugh too and how he was annoyed at the computer.
Happy new year!
Des: New Yearthagirion on January 1st, 2014 02:05 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I got quite angry Ophidius was being such a jerk. Had to have George come to the rescue. Haha, yeah at level 3 I didn't think he'd make such a bad mistake. He hates computers hee hee. Happy New Year!

Who knew I wouldn't get back to comment on this for so long!

I had to laugh that George's waffles were 'Horrifying Quality' :) I'm glad he is a good cook now, though.

Ophidius is unbelievable how he kept annoying Leeanix. I'm glad he FINALLY learnt his lesson.

I'm surprised that George could play his guitar so calmly afterwards. I would have thought that he would have had sore hands. I'm glad he defended Leeanix, though.

I agree with you that, although I like George, I could not stand to have a grumpy person around e all the time. Also, I would have thought George could fix a sink! Even I can or could do this!

Des: George Smiththagirion on January 6th, 2014 01:48 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you did.

Hehe yeah he really messed up on them the first time.

Ophidius was such a jerk. He actually annoyed me.

Well he's a pretty tough guy. Playing music helped calm him down too.

Yeah some of my characters if they were real I would not like them. He probably could but fixing stuff is more Leeanix's thing.
