Get this. I go in the kitchen and I'm putting the hamburgers in the pan, someone ever so bright walks behind me and bumps me as I'm putting a patty in the pan, burned 4 fingers on my rt hand in the oil. I've been holding my hand in cold water all night and it still burns. Idiot man. Luckily though the burns are on the back side of the fingers and not the inside. But still. It's been 3 hrs. I have to keep putting my hand back in the ice water after about 2 minutes out because it's pretty bad. So any playing I do will take forever. I guess I'll get used to hitting that 0 button to pause.
@MAnatomy: Don't feel bad, everyone belongs in this thread. I don't always comment on everyone's pictures and stories, but I always read them and I've liked everything that I've seen. All I can ask is just keep posting! Everyone in this thread is cool, no worries!
@Everyone else: Thank you for your complements on my family. Rune has been picked as my 5th generation heir.
Wow! That's a pretty awesome family tree also. Makes me realize how much corruption bites. My legacies always end in epic failure.
This is the longest I've gone... I discovered I have much more fun when I'm not motherloding them money
I took a picture in my garage while I was playing last night (or the night before)... does anyone have the SLIGHTEST idea what is causing these sparkles? The garage sparkles all the time, whether there are cars in it or not... I'd even torn down my original sparkly garage (not because it was sparkling, but because my house is getting boring to me, and there's no where to move them (to many blasted sims) and I keep renovating and rebuilding things... almost daily. Oops. Anyway, I digress. The sparkles. WHAT ARE THE SPARKLES?????

wow yu have such a big gnome family
did they ALL appear on their own??
and congrats on your boy!!
The teddy bear gnomes are laundry gnomes and randomly appeared as my Sims have done laundry.
The Sultan, Martial Artist, and French Soldier gnomes were gotten by Zachary or Louise while on their several vacations to earn their respective LTW's.
The invention gnome was built by Zachary (I only trust the unlucky Sim to invent at the moment XD)
The mysterious mr. gnome graves appeared on their own on the lot, the child gnome also appeared on his own. The adult mysterious mr. gnomes appeared randomly in the family inventory. Whether that's spoils from work (Ian's a Master Thief and Dorian's the Emperor of Evil) or that's where they randomly appear is unknown to me.

I love all the lives thus far. Mikezumi, your family is growing up fast.
Everything DOES move so quickly and I forget names. I like the hair on the toddler girls (and they are so cute) on the update by another member(it was a few pages back and I can't get to it now...sorry )
I lot happened last night for me, and very quickly. First I started, and just had fun watching Beatrice working out. This woman is strong, and man it makes me envy her even more:
Now she's just showing off, but I wish I could be her sometimes...
So I finally decide to let the couple that lives with Beatrice and Akira have a child. Marlon and Polly Jennings. One is the genii that Beatrice freed and his girlfriend, who keeps getting publicly disgraced because she "woohooing an occult" type predjudice.
This is them getting in the mood for baby:
And just wanted to properly introduce you to Polly Jennings, who used to be Polly Moloney (pre-made sim in Bridgeport)
Polly KNOWS she's pregnant now, it's not bad food
Marlon get to feel the baby bump first:
Meet the newest addition to the De Rosario household and to the Jennings clan, Ms. Damita Jennings
The gnomes were excited to and formed a welcoming party at the gates (I didn't realize there were sooooo many, they hide out in some many different places)
But babyhood is so short in the sims (even shorter in my version a mere 2 days)
and Ms. Damita is now a toddler
And Dad had the nurturing trait (as does Akira). Polly seems to be the only one short with her child (does hopeless romantic not do well with children as something hidden?). Even Beatrice is loving and doting. But the obligatory dad and daughter picture:
The birthday happened so fast, I'm not sure if I got to pick a trait for Damita or what happened...I think I'm going to have to testingcheats for that, it was late, I was tired, and trying to keep track of it all became difficult.
Im going to try and catch up to everything. So , if I miss something I'm sorry in advance.
sshawl - Lovely family! I can see why you need a heir vote.
dorendia122 - Charlie is adorable! Snickers and Demetrius LOL. I like the pattern on Riley's dress.
Seera1024 - Nice update! Sounds like a soap opera going on there.
dylsoccer12 - Chantel is very pretty and I love her name. I like the pink speedo he's wearing, very hip.
singoutloudx - Lovely house!
mikezumi - Daciana's is very pretty but, my favorite is still Crescentia. She just carries off that devious look so well! In first picture, Crescentia looks very much like she is up to something. Second one she is behaving. Third one looks like she gave in and got that bum again! Also third one looks like someone else was joining in the mischief . Sorry can't remember his name , back row fingers up to give someone a good pinch!
Ray27 - I like Logan, just like the way he looks.
qnoftheamazon - Beau is quite the ladies man!
tashie_baby11 - You have a beautiful family!
ddsimsworld - Your house is lovely!
AngelArosebed - Congrats on building your house.

OhhJuliet- Do you have a genie? Because when you have the genie magically clean the house, then the whole house will sparkle for a while.
BecomingJenn- Holy cow! Talk about invasion of the gnomes!
Mikezumi-Your girls are absolutely stunning! Im surprised you moved both of your boys out, you seem to prefer boys as the heir. But then, maybe the fact that Morty is Crescentia's boyfriend makes it worth while to have a female heir
