...but Mary totally upset Brandon's family and got kicked out of his house. Oddly, between her and Jimmy, he's the mean spirited one that always insults people including his brother, yet she gets tossed out.
That's Melissa kicking her out. Before that it was Melissa's little sister who had an issue. I suppose it's a glitch, but still pretty funny. Sweet Mary causing a ruckus! Look out!
I just adore than an entire family can go for a visit. Here's Jimmy taking little Kaya over to Brandon's.
Here's the little family before Kaya aged up.
Here is Kaya aged up.
Still hard to tell who she looks like, but she has Mary's eye color, and it looks like Jimmy's nose.
Their life is a little too peaceful. It's very nice to play. Mary is an author, but she also takes a lot of photographs. I've been having a lot of fun with that, and she makes quite a bit of money at the consignment shop I've added to Coconut Island. She's the bread winner of the family, that's for sure. Jimmy comes in handy to fix stuff and cook.
I've been having the most fun with Ambitions starring:
Yep, Paula as...
...a ghost buster. Okay, this is the dramatic shot she asked me to use. Really, she spends a lot of time chatting up ghosts now-a-days, reassuring them that their loved ones are okay and then convincing them to move on. And every so often, she breaks out the zapper and zaps them or gets into a little fight. (So far she's won all her fights.)
Paula lives with Mitchell who's an inventor which means he gets to blow up stuff for scrap!
Blowing up toilets that clog constantly is so much more efficient than actually fixing them. It's also a great stress reliever. He often gets the urge to blow up plumbing that doesn't work perfectly, but he doesn't often get to blow them up. (Paula threatens to turn her zapper on him if he doesn't behave. Someone's gotta keep these inventors in line.)
So for fun, I sent them down to the salon where Paula got her first tattoos and Mitchell got a make over.
The neat part is that this actually unlocks some new clothes, so there is an actual incentive to do this other than the moodlet. I sort of wish we could choose their clothes though. Paula also got a make over, but we hated it so there are no pics of that. (Seriously, even she didn't seem impressed!)
Paula apparently got bored while Mitchell and the stylist were talking. So she autonomously grabbed someone and offered to do a make over.
Surprisingly this is the outfit she started out with, not the one Paula put on her.
I can't remember what Paula put her in, but it was comparable to this. She was not happy. I didn't see the problem personally. I also didn't get a picture.
This is the stylist. Who wouldn't want him to tell them how to dress?
Paula loved her tattoos so much, she had the want to get another one. Somehow, it seems she made Mitchell think he wanted one too. So I had them head to the salon again, but it was too late.
This was when I learned that after about 6pm or so, everyone goes home and the shops close. Well, they came all the way into town, so Paula was not about to leave without getting or giving a tattoo.
"Sit," she said.
"What? Oh no, no no."
Some dealing must have gone on. I wonder if at this point she agreed to let him blow up one piece of plumbing. I think he's just much too nice to really say no convincingly.
Yeah; he didn't really stand a chance, I'm sure.
He got some tattoos all right. Nothing that he could really show off to anyone, of course. Then to add insult to injury, Paula broke the chair, and Mitchell fixed it.
He figured it was best to stay on the good side of the tattoo artist who he'd ask to remove Paula's work.
Here you can see some of her "work." I think Mitchell has learned a very valuable lesson in a very painful way.
