« previous entry | next entry »
Mar. 15th, 2013 | 05:29 pm

Previously at Strandbrynsvägen, everybody was happy and Hugo most of all since he reached the Knowledge IW. We had a lot of secondary aspirations and filled aspiration panels. Lovisa found her true hobby which is fitness, and left for University.

We’re in for a boring round, with four permaplat grown-ups – nothing more to strive for. Engla has maxed her Music enthusiasm since before

6753 Mishap

Hugo actually hasn’t got any plaque yet, so he’s reading up on Culinary. However, he’s also sick in the flu and doesn’t get to the bathroom in time. That’s about how interesting this house is.

Elmer dances all day in his max Music enthusiasm 1p, if not before

6755 Architect

Hugo wants a second career for his second LTW, and chooses to become an architect

6756 Max culinary

Then he starts blogging about food and maxes his enthusiasm, 1p

6757 Pastime

To pass time he even fixes the broken shower

6758 Drums

When Tessa arrives home from her Chief of Staff job, she practices her drum skill

6759 Plaque

Then she earns her plaque too. 1p!

6760 Full asp6761 Full asp

This house is boring, I know, but we get a lot of points!
Elmer and Hugo both fill their aspiration panels . 6p!

6762 PArtner

That day Hugo becomes an architectural partner

6763 Spend time

Elmer and Tessa spends some time on the sofa…

6764 Tessa dies

…and just in time, too, because her time is up

6765 17jun95

6766 Obituary

Out of boredom, we even designed a Swedish looking obituary. It might, or might not, become a tradition in this hood.

Swedish obituaries look a lot like the Norwegian ones... Not a big surprise perhaps.

American obituaries are usually much longer...at least, they are in small towns in the country where elderly ladies have nothing fun to do but "read the obits." ;) (I used to be a papergirl, so I know this.)

I'd expect to see a shorter tribute like that in the paper on the anniversary of somebody's death. People do that in small-town America too, take small pieces of space in the paper to say, "Dear Dead Person, It has been five years and we still miss you. Love, Your Family."

I was expecting to have to write a Sim obituary a few posts from where I am now, but my most elderly elder managed to make it to the end of her household's play cycle with a sliver of life-meter left. So you will have to wait another whole round to see an American-style obituary.

We have those memorial ads too, just like yours. Looking forward to your obituaries :)

Aww. RIP Tessa. I like the obituary. Would be neat to see something of the sort in posts where someone dies, but I know doing them would just make for extra work. I'm currently all about eliminating/avoiding as much extra work as I can with my blogging (not that I've been doing much since I've not been playing).

I was so bored with this lot so I created some more work for myself :) There will be at least one more of those, which is already created. Later on we'll see...

Certainly a quiet house. The obit is pretty cool. You see things like that occasionally in the US, but usually they are longer like someone else said. That's especially true in small towns....which I grew up in.

Sometimes there are longer obituaries, too, but these "ads" are always there anyway
