Tallåsen year 75-79, Scary Morfar

« previous entry | next entry »
Sep. 5th, 2010 | 10:43 am


Previously at Tallåsen, Martin maxed his Creativity skill and worked in his flower shop. Melissa played with the family dog and grew up to child. Sofie trained the dog and seemed to hit the glass ceiling in her company, never getting promoted, despite the management's promises.



Martin is sick with the flu, but not worse than he’s able to go to his store.

 

He doesn’t open the store, but works on his stock instead, to be ready when he’s healthy again.



Sofie comes home promoted to CEO, a position that she was promised a long time ago, but has had to wait for until now.



Martin: ”Yes, Melissa, the single most important thing in life is to become financially independent. Look at your mother, she’s a CEO now!”
Melissa: “Ok, Pappa!”



That night, Orlando Ceder, Sofie's father, decides it's time for the family to remember him.

Orlando: ”BOOH!”
Melissa: ”Gaah! Morfar! I don’t like when you do that, at least not four times a night. I’m just a kid, I need to sleep!”

Seriously, he woke her up ALL night!



Melissa: ”Gah! I’m telling Mamma!”
Orlando: ”No you don’t!”

Melissa: “Mamma, didn’t you see that?!”
Sofie: “What? I smell a lovely familiar after shave!”
Melissa: “It’s Morfar! He keeps scaring me, but I didn’t do anything! Tell him to stop!”

 

Despite the hauntings during the night, Martin has the energy to go to his store the next day. And with the help of his girls the flower shop reaches level 5!
And by closing time, when Martin is able to leave the register, he earns his gold badge in stocking as he wished for for a long time.



The next day, while making himself a burnt nudel-o-rama, the shop reaches level 6!

 

Back home, Melissa is turning nocturnal, since her Morfar doesn’t let her sleep at night. Tonight she maxes her creativity skill.
And a few hours later, Martin maxes his Arts&Crafts enthusiasm and earns a plaque, just by preparing bouquets for his shop.

 

Back at the shop, the girls learn a lot, too. Both of them have at least one gold badge, which makes them qualified as managers, so Martin relaxes a bit in the dog bath (!)
Later on, even Martin himself earns his gold badge in sales, at the same time as the shop reaches level 7.

 

By level 8 the business even starts to have a better cash-flow. It works swimmingly!
However, since the dog bath got installed, Martin is rarely in his uniform anymore!
Then he earns his gold badge in flower arrangements. My very first sim ever to get that far! Now, we can sell snapdragons!

 

And back home, we have more good news – Sofie gets promoted to Business Tycoon at age 45, thereby fulfilling her LTW – 2p.
Now she wants to become The Law.

She immediately applies for a job as a Personal Injury Attorney, as it was available.

 

Then it’s time for Melissa to grow out of her pink princess dress and into a Popularity aspiration. I think that will suit her.
She turns on fron un-employed highly charismatic people, unless they are redheads.



And here is teen Melissa, preparing her breakfast in her brand new outfit. She decided she wants to become The Law, just as her mother wants right now.





However, the law career is not easy for Sofie. She gets fired her first day for making a wrongful decision of what to sue for. She gets fired from a bad chance card! And there the time is up - on to the big family of Ovanåker

 


Tallåsen after round 21:
Martin Montell
Sofie Montell
Melissa Montell
Gumman, the Poodle

That certainly was a businesslike family. So many shop related badges!

Looks like Orlando is bored and wants more ghosts around. Perhaps he should move to the graveyard?

Maybe. He's got his wife Maria there, too, but she is rarely seen. If it doesn't get any better next round, I'll move them.

How did Melissa manage to keep up with school and homework if Orlando's ghost was keeping her awake all night all the time? Good job with the badges and promotions. Hopefully Sophie will be able to get another Law job next time and make a go of it.

Luckily Orlando was worst during the weekend, so Melissa didn't suffer in school.
Sofie doesn't have much luck in her worklife. First no promotions, and then fired on her first day in a new career

That stinks about all the hauntings. I tend to keep my ghosts on the lot until they become a nuisance and then send them to the cemetery. At least everything seems to be functional around the house. Martin is doing great with the flower shop, I'm starting to enjoy business more and more. Congrats to Sophie for finally reaching TOC and achieving her LTW. For a second there it looked like Melissa was rebelling against her parents with her attraction to unemployed men, but then I guess she changed her mind when she decided to want the same as her mother career wise.

I was SOO close to send Orlando off, but in a way this was more fun.
Technically Martin is unemployed, maybe that is what Melissa wants - to work like her mother, while having a self-employed husband running the house? :)

Sometimes ghosts can be really annoying and although I like to keep the graves around because of the family connections and whatnot, sometimes it can just be too much.

Orlando was a real pain in the... this round. We'll see if I'll allow him to stay next round :)

Melissa is quite a pretty girl. She looks a lot like her mother. So it looks like more Pop sims now, instead of romance sims. Funny how it goes in rounds like that. Although the majority of my hood is pop sims or pleasure sims. lol. Nice job with the business, and yay for gold flower making!

It's nice to have some variety in the aspirations. i think the most rare one in Mattsmyra is Fortune, even if this house has two!
