Sophie Westerhof is an intelligent young adult, addicted to new experiences. Do something more than 5 times and she’s bored.

She’s bored a LOT.

But not when hiking.
Or skiing.
But she does look a bit bored when she comes off the ski slope.

I’m afraid to send her to university; she’d just find the repetitious homework a big snooze.

Walking Lady

Walking Lady in Brindleton Bay

One of the few redeeming features in the Sims 4 is canine adoration. Lady (the only rough collie in my game) has been with Elle through young adulthood and university. Elle recently graduated with a Psychology degree at Britechester.

When they go for a walk I follow them and watch Lady watching her mistress. It calms me for some reason.

Whatever it takes, right?


The Brindleton Bay docks at night.

Sims 4.

I dunno; my brain is stuck therefore I cannot think of anything else. Oh, not sims. Another sister popped up, a lovely person who will probably visit this summer. Well, you know the Cracker Box. I’m mentally rebuilding the thing; painting, new rugs, some plants…. a new master bath redo would be grand, since I took a sledgehammer to the original and it sits… like a demented shell of the room it was… with a toilet. I would never take out a toilet willy-nilly.

What was I saying? Oh, yeah. Sims.

Brindleton Bay

It’s hard to tell with such a small picture, but mornings in the Sims can be beautiful.

I heard they’re starting work on Sims 5, God help us. I’d rather they re-tool one of the iterations that really worked, game play wise. Sims 4 beauty with Sims 3 game play.

The Scotts

Minus their parents, who still live in Oasis Springs.

No idea why it looks like the sun is rising from the tree, but it’s a cool effect.

Watson, finally happy because his sister Katy called.

…and yes, he really does live in the shadow of a volcano. Heh.

Sibling Katy is happy. She’s a cheerful, creative sim who loves life. Unlike gloomy gus.

Katy recently went on a date with a sim named Nick, also a creative type. Instead of meeting up at a bar or park where they would have things to do, Nick asked her to a basically empty lot.

At the end of the date he said “don’t call me again”. Oh, well. Once again, never assume.

Katy just finished her first semester at Foxbury, so she’s not really looking for a steady beau right now anyway.

Simthing Wrong

Don’t usually post my sims stuff, but this picture of Watson Scott, newly minted young adult, made me laugh. Watson was a good toddler, child and teen. He worked hard and received straight A’s in school.

A happy young man, when he aged up to young adult… well, let’s just put it this way: something is wrong with Watson. Or simthing.

Oh, there are more pictures of him slumping and frowning all over the place. Gym, nightclub, library… oh, there is a dilly of one meeting a woman… guess he didn’t like her because his eyes squinted up and his mouth pursed like my dog’s arse hole.

I moved him to a small (tiny) home directly under the volcano in Sulani. ‘Tis a beautiful place, Sulani. I fully expected him to take right to it; an outdoorsy, brilliant sim who could walk a few steps to the ocean. Right? I assumed he’d like to attend Foxbury U, become a marine biologist and live a full sim life.

Never assume, even with pixels.

Little People

When I fire up The Sims Arthur always comments on “your little people”. I never played with dolls growing up, always preferring horses and dogs and even cows to the play dates my mom set up. Barbies? Nah, too boring.

Yes, I even chose chores over plastic babies.

Anyway, I started playing the Sims with the first iteration and though 3 is my favorite, as usual I moved into 4 when it was released. New has to mean better, right? Not when you’re talking about sims. I know people who won’t leave Sims 2! And 4 is just a mo better version of 2.

Just some pictures because I’m stalling until it gets really hot til I go outside and work in the yard. Heh…

Dawn Roarke, who wasn’t at all sure she wanted to be a plant sim… but being a scientist, quickly got with the program. Dawn loves pink and usually has pink hair. Thought it funny she didn’t lose her pink eyebrows (probably because they’re custom):


A female vamp whose name escapes me. Lost her during the last re-install.


Julie in Oasis Springs, who had twins and was thus blessed with 2 toddlers at the same time… poor thing didn’t get a bath for days…


…and some views of the city of San Myshuno, the part we can’t go to.. I miss Sims 3!
