Myren year 68-70, A Ghost at my Party

« previous entry | next entry »
Dec. 20th, 2009 | 09:15 am

Previously at Myren, Rolf and Evert were working their businesses and looked great. Britta gave birth to Ulrika, the first-born generation 3 of the Myhr family. Britta then developed a fear of changing diapers.

The family received a genie lamp from the gypsy, and Evert wished for peace of mind. He then closed his art gallery and earned 100.000§, which was his IW. He finished his private business, too and drew his last breath, leaving the rest of the family in grief. Marita found comfort in taking care of young Ulrika.

 

We start where we ended last time, with Marita teaching Ulrika her skills.  

Marita: “Say Farmor, Ulrika dear. Far-Mor!”
Ulrika: ...



Two hours later. Marita is persistent.

Marita: “Say Farmor, honey. Far-Mor!” Ulrika: “Far-Mor!” Marita: "Good girl!"

Friday night Rolf asks some people over. Among them, his newly-wed, highly pregnant sister Agnes. Agnes: “Yes, we’re expecting. The doctor says it might be twins!”

Britta shows herself from her best side to Rolf’s friends. Barbro doesn’t appreciate the treatment, but Britta is satisfied, and the party becomes a success.

That night, when arriving home from work, Marita calls her crime syndicate and retires. She doesn’t feel comfortable in the Criminal Mastermind outfit anymore, and doesn’t feel it’s appropriate for a Farmor to work in crime anyway.

Saturday it’s party time again. It’s Ulrika’s birthday. Evert makes an appearance, all depressed to be dead.

Well, Ulrika features her mother’s colours, but the cheekbones and chin are most definitvely her father’s!
 
Marita concentrates on her skilling after her retirement and maxes her cooking skill.
 
The rest of the family enjoys a lazy Sunday brunch in their PJs. Even the maid Katarina is invited to the family occasion.

After the brunch Ulrika goes outside to play with the neighbourhood kids. She meets at least one her own age, it’s Rasmus Eriksson. The other guy is called Tryggve (!) And that's all we have time for. See you next time!  


Myren after round 19:
Marita Myhr
Rolf Myhr
Britta Myhr
Ulrika Myhr

Tryggve sounds so Norse! It is the kind of names we had in Western Norway when I was young, along with Harald and Gunnar and Gunnhild and Bjørg. Viking romantic names!

It's a very Nordic name, indeed, but quite outdated, at least in Sweden. Harald and Gunnar are names still in use though!

And I don't think the name Tryggve fits a black guy :)

It's hard to write reasonable stories about people in the criminal career. and your right the uniform for criminal mastermind looks ridiculous on the elderly.

I don't think the Criminal Career is realistic at all. They should have put in some ordinary job istead, like engineer or shop keeper

That's sweet that Evert showed up for Ulrika's birthday -- hopefully he didn't scare anybody, that can really tank a party score. Even though Ulrika favors her mother's coloring, hopefully she doesn't take after Britta in the personality department! The house seems very quiet to play without the businesses going on.

They still own one business, but kept it closed over the weekend, so we will still see some store action in the future.

And I agree that I hope Ulrika doesn't take after her mother in behaviour, pranking and farting all the time :/

Ulrika turned into a rather pretty little girl overall. I like the coloring she got from her mother. Hopefully she'll keep growing up well into her looks.

That picture of Evert crying at the party is really sad.
Ulkira is a cutie! And how in the world would you pronounce the name Tryggve?

Hmm... 'Trig-veh' would be pretty close I think :D
