Downtown year 75-79, A Broadway Star

« previous entry | next entry »
Oct. 28th, 2010 | 07:05 am


This is a new lot. We last saw Anita when she graduated from University in 74.



Anita Jernelid finished her University education.

 

Even though she was invited there by David Lind, they didn’t end up together, but she moved to her own small house downtown.



The house is actually not so small. It’s an abandoned Asylum, so the decoration leaves some things to be desired. Not to mention the landscaping. However, it was an as-is-bargain and even two genie lamps were included! There’s also a rumour of a ghost, but Anita doesn’t give the rumour much credit.



Anita makes an effort with the sponge, to make the dump livable. She’s a Fortune Gemini with an LTW to become a Prestidigitator, and her true hobby is Sports. She turns on from elders in glasses and turns off from make-up.

She recently graduated from college, SCL in Drama.



After a couple of hours cleaning, Anita gets bored and invites Louise over. They are the best of friends, and always got along perfectly when in college.


 

Her old boyfriend Michael Dalton asks her on a date to the nightclub, and she accepts.
He talks her into woohooing in the photobooth, but she not really pleased with herself when the deed is done.



Michael even gets a hands-on lecture by Mrs Crumplebottom.
They decide to finish up the date at home instead. It’s not their first time, but the cinematics are nice, so why not?



Apart from a moment’s insanity during the date with Michael, when she hoped to get married to him, Anita is a sensible woman. She mostly wishes for skills and new stuff, which is understandable. She could use some new clothes, too.
 

While downtown shopping for new clothes, Anita ends up cooking burgers and hotdogs for all the neighbourhood. First batch she couldn’t even touch herself before it was gone.



With her new clothes, Anita also decides on a new hairdo, or rather, undo. J68 thinks she looks fabulous!

 

Oscar Törnblad passes by one day and Anita invites him for spaghetti, but she doesn’t like him very much. She has still not found her desired job in the Entertainment field, and the cash is running low.

Luckily Anita is a Fortune sim and can give financial advice over the internet and earn some money.



Finally, she finds a job as a Broadway-star and she will start earning some serious money!
The house is still depressing, but it will be better with time!



After one day of work, where she turned down a part that didn’t appeal to her, she is contracted to play Ophelia and gets a bonus of 50.000§! Time to make some renovations to the Asylum!



To celebrate her success, Anita invites her closest friends to a party. David Lind wants to congratulate her in a special way... This can end in a disaster! Gerd, David’s wife, is also invited.



Luckily, David and Anita come to their senses and get out of bed before anything happens.



But suddenly it’s appearant that David have more skeletons in his closet. Professor Korn, who stands behind him now, just jumped into his arms and hugged him. Gerd was furious of course, and Anita is stunned!

Maybe it wasn’t David that was crazy, but Professor Korn. Seconds after the first debacle she tries to jump into the arms of Anita’s friend Jennifer, too.

Jennifer: “Are you completely nuts, woman?!”
Professor Korn: “Please, whatever-your-name-is, I love you! Don’t turn me down!”



Gerd: ”I will have you committed, you homewrecking old bat!”
Professor Korn: “Such hostility is unbecoming of a young lady as yourself!”

Louise, Gerd’s sister, and Monica, their cousin, are backing Gerd up.



Professor Korn doesn’t give up.

Professor Korn: “Ah, Elisabet! You are so beautiful, please let me kiss you!”
Elisabet: “Get off of me you crazy old hag, or I’ll give you a lesson in Kung Fu!”
Professor Korn: “Well, that didn’t go as planned...”




Later, all the others are inside. Professor Korn makes a move on Anita, too.
Professor Korn: “Ah, Anita, you are so beautiful, please let me kiss you!”
Anita: “Well, thank you, Professor Korn”
J68:   O_O


That Professor should really have her head checked!


Downtown after round 21:
Anita Jernelid

She must be a drama professor. They are known for causing lots of drama!

It would not be too far-fetched, since Anita majored in Drama!

In my Greater Pleasantview, the drama professor married my self!sim's daughter, so became playable. He got instant best friends and instant love with every sim he met. So yeah, totally crazy. His wife kept forgiving him, but their daughter hated him and eventually her relationship with her mother too went down every time she saw them doing any romantic interaction, so I had to hurry her to college right after she became a teen to not have her run away from home! 0_0 DRAMA!

Wow! What a story! That would have been something to see blogged!
Maybe I should continue to invite Professor Korn for some more Drama :)

It is a glitch with all drama professors that they do such a thing.

Great entry :) I'll be interested to see if the rumored resident ghost ever makes an appearance (is there really one?). Also, I'd been unaware of the issues with the drama professors - but then I don't often have my college kids get too involved with their professors beyond talking on the phone sometimes for the grades boost. Only rarely do they have any real contact with their professors after they graduate.

I actually don't know if there is a real ghost. The name on the tombstone is Jennifer Davidsson, the same as Anita's friend. I can't remember what I did with the Asylum residents after I stopped playing it. I did a few tries with that challenge, too :)

For a single house there was a lot going on. Anita's makeover is great! Also, I like the tiled countertop recolors... any idea where you got them? The party was fun... ACR always makes parties more fun, lol, at least Gerd didn't catch David and Anita together!

The counter tops are a standard colour in the IKEA pack for the cheapest counters. I like them too.
David and Anita never got down to business, but it would have been bad enough if Gerd saw what we saw! :)

David was pretty receptive, too. All the others turned her down.
I had no idea Drama professors behaved like that until I had comments on this update. You learn something new every day! :)

Good lesson for me too about the professors! I like Anita...I'm glad she's joined the hood.

She's pretty fun, despite her being Fortune, which is the most boring aspiration to me
