Downtown year 85-87, Under the Influence

Previously at Downtown, Anita made out at the gym. Then she skilled the rest of the round.



Anita Jernelid, 35, Fortune

...



Anita is very focused on her career in Show Business and works to get promoted all the time. Except this minute, when she actually spends some time on her salt water aquarium.



She has been dating Michael Dalton since college, but never showed any interest in making it really serious.



On her day off Anita invites Michael for breakfast, and he brings a friend, Jenny, who is in Uni. The conversation around the table is revolving around the Uni experience they all share.



Then they share Anita’s bed and afterwards she talks him into doing the cleaning, while she calls another friend.



Cedric invites her to an outing at the gym, and there she meets Joel Tranberg among others.



And spends some time with Cedric. But outings are hard and it’s still a boring experience.



But when they start playing Marco Polo, the gang thinks it’s fun anyway. Successful outing, amazing!



Meanwhile, Michael continues to clean Anita’s house. Very convenient arrangement to let your boyfriend clean for you!



At least she thanks him by asking him on a date.



And they make her car fly!



The next day Anita influences Solveig, a neighbourhood girl, to clean for her. She’s got a talent for making people do what she wants.



She pays with a lunch. She could afford a maid, but she keeps rolling the want to influence someone to clean instead. Maybe a habit since college, or a sign of Anita becoming a diva.



Michael had a rediculously fun time at their date, and leaves a telescope as a thank you gift!



We have found that Anita is in the wrong career to become a Prestidigitator.
Anita: “I’m a Blockbuster Director”
J68: “OK, but that won’t get you to Prestidigitator, but to Icon...”
Anyway, there ar no Entertainment jobs available, so that’ll be next time. Maybe.



Saturday she invites some friends for a drink. The topic of conversation is still the Inception movie. Mattsmyra has an Inception fever!



A great evening is had by all, and there we end the update from Downtown for this time.

At least after this round she seems to have a circle of friends to spend her Sundays with. Not really an entourage yet, but give her some more time ... Even she changes her career, she'll still be in the spotlight, right.

The Entertainment and Show Business careers are very confusing in Swedish - the Show Business one is called Entertainment, and the Entertainment one I don't even remember what it's called. And they are really similar, so I don't think Anita needs to change her life much.

Love is holding hands; true love is cleaning the bathroom!

Anita really knows how to work a crowd doesn't she? And her neighbors and boyfriend too. Maybe she can make it to both Icon and Prestidigitator.

Maybe she will, since she didn't find an Entertainment job this round. She just might happen to reach Icon before another job will show up :)

For only having one sim in the house her life seems far from boring.

it's so unrealistic to leave your boyfriend at home and expect he'll clean for you ;) Looks like Anita is doing well despite the Oops of being in the wrong career... I always get those two mixed up too!

I realized when I checked it more carefully, that BOTH the Entertainment career and the Show Business career are called Entertainment in Swedish, so it's not vary hard to understand that I got them confused...

Hmm....can Michael Dalton come move into Breeze Point? I think Temperance Kirkendall would greatly enjoy him in his underwear cleaning. ;)
