Yes dear, even though you are now at death’s door, you still retain your hands.
Considering that she painted this in her dotage, I think someone has some social issues.
Still incontinent though.
The third and final triplet becomes an elder. At least Burton seems to be enjoying himself.
Fresh couldn’t deal with the lonliness after Brian’s death. She had him ressurected when the opportunity arose. He moved back in with them full time. Strangely, they were considered to be “engaged” and not “married”.
Yes Burton, one way to get ahead at work is to take your boss out for dinner at the local crummy Diner (it reminds me of the diner in ER, back when ER was a good show) a few times, and then propose to her in front of the dumpsters. Suave.
Is more continent now.
This one really does look like a teacher.
I’m surprised that Burton really did it. I thought it was just going to be a ruse in order to get to the top of the career ladder before she popped her clogs and then be well rid of her when she did. Nups. He actually married her before he got to the top. WTF Burton?
Burglaries abound before now, but things seem to be a little calmer at the moment.
Do they get skills for kissing people, or something? Another day another man to suck the face off for Oxy.
Having found a new beau at the park, that means finishing with her previous guy. She’s not really gentle.
Oxy decided that after all of these years of being childless, despite having many (many!) men, she would trap a guy and get herself pregnant. Looks like she’s found the guy.
Brian Temper dies, finally. He was an outsider – maybe that’s why no-one else is looking terribly bothered?
I’m not sure if I should be congratulating someone that traps a man?
I really cannot remember who this one is. Oxy’s already looking fat. Sorry fatter.
How does that work? Yet ANOTHER burglary?! Please! This one just seemed to stand around rather than steal anything.
Having not told her boyfriend that she was up the duff, Oxy was a little stressed and spent a fair bit of time at the Spa. She went into labour while there one day. Not the first to try and give birth in town, and probably won’t be the last.
A kid, whose name, yet again, escapes me. It was probably something fairly normal though. At least it was only one.
Looks like someone’s just rammed something up there, judging by his eyes. Ugly bastard.
I am determined to get this family to 10 generations. It feels as though it’s taking so much longer than in The Sims 2.
Previously there were pregnancies, burglaries and many many relationships.
It’s been so damn long since I wrote one of these entries that I can’t remember which kid this is, but it has grown up nonetheless!
I found it mildly amusing that someone died outside the hospital doors. Apparently this hospital “saves more than it kills”. Yeah…right.
Yet another man in her life. I’ve lost count, but if I recall correctly this guy is also called Temper, and his first name may be Donte?
After having Donte (?) round for dinner, and then giving them both a place to stay for the night, his son decides to reject the food and instead the little insolent little brat throws it on the floor.
If I remember correctly, this is Dettol and Christa, and she’s pregnant with his kid. She lives across the road in that trailer.
Christa went to hospital to have the kid, this innocent bystander felt the need to join in.
Oxy’s got another man. Will she break up with Donte (?)?
Fresh paid a visit to Christa’s house after the baby was born, but had the misfortune of meeting Christa’s mother (I think) who did nothing but bitch at people, and here she is either accusing Fresh of being the cause of some flies, or being a fly. Trust me, this was not a “Chat”, they were almost physically fighting.
Even this kid can’t stand to be held by the acerbic bitch.
Oxy tells Donte (?) where to stick his relationship as she gets a little friendly with the dark haired guy. She didn’t like his kid anyway. Brat.
Previously on The Temper Family Files we had some growing up, some golddigging and many relationships for our dear Oxy.
Oxy had it on with the maid for a while, as boyfriend number three. He was some stick insect called Bimble Saylor or something like that. As you can tell from this picture, it was over pretty quickly. I’m so glad that “WooHoo” doesn’t carry a risk of “accidents”, otherwise she’d have enough kids for a circus.
Don’t mind this guy. He’s just doing the regular stint as burglar.
If this was outside they would be arrested for lewd behaviour.
If you recall Fresh was the one with the lifetime wish to be a golddigger, or more precisely to see the ghost of a wealthy spouse. Despite not really wanting any kids (never rolled the desire) she decided to get pregnant anyway just to make sure that he was well and truly snared for the rest of his life.
On this day there were four birthdays. Two of whom were the triplets (with Fresh being up that duff she didn’t age), and the other two Brian and I think Persil, the oldest brother.
Brian had, by chance, witnessed the death of someone else and was really cut up about it. He was more bothered about it than his wife going into labour.
I suppose it’s not so bad as these boys can go all over the town, sowing their seeds and never having to bring the kids up themselves. He was named Hayden, a fairly normal name, no?
The second brother (technically third if you include Bloo who left ages ago) Dettol finally got some loving with a family across the road named Temper. You might remember where they came from. A few entries back I made reference to Lana Temper who had moved into a ‘trailer’ across the road. Well, a few kids and a couple of generations down the line, we’re now here with Christa Temper who is Dettol’s beau. Technically they should be somehow related by blood, but the game doesn’t recognise that.
Burton was such a bastard. Stealing candy from a baby. Cunt.
Oxy is dumping number four here. This was Ryan Jnr. Temper. You might remember him too, he was Bounty Temper’s son from a relationship she had with a co-worker. He was actually gay, and Oxy forced him to break up with Clyde in order to become her boyfriend. He was hurt.
Previously on the The Temper Family Files, we had teens giving birth, teens growing up, golddiggers rearing their ugly heads and lifetime wishes being fulfilled.
Oxy, the ginger bird here, had a lifetime wish of being the girlfriend of ten different sims. At first I thought that this meant all at once, but The Sims 3 can’t cope with that. Seriously, you cannot have simultaneous declared girl/boyfriends. They have to be “single” first. They can shag whomever they choose, but they can’t “declare” it. Here she dumps her first boyfriend. She’s well on her way!
Burton becomes a teenager, and a fat one at that.
Oxy’s just asking number two to be her boyfriend. Don’t worry old dude, she not after your money, just a bit of sex, kissing and then a break-up. She enjoys it like that.
Burton wasn’t the best behaved teenager. Here he awaits his mother’s chastising while Fresh and her boyfriend Brian get close in the background.
Who would be lucky number three for Oxy?
Brian likes a woman with a bit of meat of her, and Fresh was no exception. It’s been nigh on impossible to rid this family of the fat gene. Maybe if I can get a few rakes into the gene pool, that would help?
I forgot to mention that Brian did agree to marry Fresh, and they had a quaint little ceremony in Central Park. A couple of Oxy’s ex-boyfriends were invited to make up numbers. A little bit of arguing ensued.
How could Brian not have realised that she was evil before they got married?!
Brian was a technophobe. So I got him to sabotage the TV. After it’s used for a while it suddenly breaks. Technophobe sims can’t even be in the same room as TV because they get a negative moodlet. When I’ve had him play computer games his fun bar continues to go down. Now, reading or painting is fine, but anything with electricity isn’t.
A third generation of teen pregnancy was putting paid to the idea of reform in the Temper Family.
Please Sis, you know where the toilet is. Oh…right. Oh! You’re having a baby!
Yeah, why do they? Anyway, I gave this kid a normal name. That’s right, he’s called Burton. No, not Burton Menswear. Rather Burton Fallin (the moutachieod man on the left), because I’d seen all of The Guardian and an advert had recently been on TV for it. Perhaps the funniest thing about this one having a kid was that I deliberately gave her the “Dislikes Children” trait.
I suppose this must be dear little Burton growing up. I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention to him, and neither did his Mother. That’s what happens when someone who “Dislikes Children” has one. Most of the rest of the family looked after him while she went to school and work. She couldn’t stand to be around him and always had a negative moodlet (or two) if she had to interact with him. Other people (Jeyes I think) taught him to talk and walk and his relationship with his Mother has stayed at pretty much a perfect zero.
Persil’s finally an adult with a dead end job. All the better to achieve his lifetime wish! If the wind changes and she gets stuck like that, she’ll never find a man.
It was her transition into Young Adult. Wonderful. However, little Burton here seems to be taking the lyric from The Killers song “Human” a bit too far, “You’ve got to let me go”.
Get them desensitised to death when they’re toddlers. All the better to become crims then. Jeyes is the one dying here, if you hadn’t guessed.
Poor old Burton, not quite beaten with the ugly stick, but not shown much love by the pretty stick either.
This one wanted to be the girlfriend of 10 different sims. She started early.
And this one wanted to be the town golddigger. Yep, that’s right, she wanted to marry a rich sim and then see his ghost. Sounds like a nice girl. Real salt of the earth type.
Dettol achieved his lifetime wish pretty early on. It was to have a household fund bucket worth something around §1,152,000. That wasn’t difficult. He’s happy and now spends most of his time just jogging. Good on him.
Some things obviously are never learned, as we shall shortly see.
You can relax a bit now Jeyes. You’ve almost fulfilled your wish, having had six children. You’re high up in the medical career and you’re serially happy. What could go wrong?
During Persil’s quest to max out three skills, he tried a little too hard and got fried by the trash compactor.
No-one really liked Cillit, those tears are just for the camera.
Here, one of the triplets meets her Father for the first time at her birthday party. I didn’t bother with pictures of them as teenagers because they all looked the same, and that was practically the same as when they became children. This was the first (and last) time that they saw their father.
The intelligence available to the crims must be out of date now, as this burglar wasn’t banking on the Tempers having installed an alarm system.
I found it rather ironic that as one of the Triplets was getting it together with a boy, her Mother was painting an angry face.
If only she’d listened to her mother: we wouldn’t have a third generation teenage pregnancy. Honestly, throwing your lives away.
Jeyes didn’t think anything could go wrong during her twilight years. She thought they would be troublefree and easy. She wasn’t banking of having one stupid kid, who, despite having helped her fulfill her lifetime wish, was now disappointing her beyond belief.
With one daughter pregnant, the last think she needed, or wanted was for another daughter to get picked up by the Police. Oh dear…look what’s happened!
The pregnant one kept going to school. It’s a shame that they can’t give birth at school/work. That would add an extra element of surprise!
Jeyes isn’t as young as she used to be, so he’s on her final man.
With Jeyes having this lifetime wish to fulfill to raise five children from babies to toddlers she really had to have a multiple birth. I tried everything I possibly could to help it happen. The advice I found online to encourage multiple births was to have my pregnant sim watch children’s TV, while listening to Kid’s music, and also reading a whole load of children’s books. We will have to wait and see if it works.
The normality was short lived, for I changed her hair back. But this outfit, really now girl?
Looking as fat as ever, Jeyes went into labour. I decided not to send her to hospital.
Even though you can only see two here, she did in fact have triplets. I would appear that the above advice worked a treat. All of them were girls, and sticking with the cleaning product theme, they were named Pine, Fresh and Oxy.
Dettol rolled the Athletic trait, but is it me or does he looks a little fat for that?
And then, out of nowhere I found a new function in The Sims 3: the ability to hold an autograph signing. Entirely by accident I found that Cillit, being a famous conductor could go to certain venues (this is the stadium) and sign as many autographs as possible in the space of a few hours.
All three of them grew up at the same time, but had different hair colours. Now, just how difficult can three toddlers be?
I was so enamoured by the first autograph signing, I got her to do another one. It love the faces of the fans, they are always so excited.
It was finally time for Vileda to depart us. It’s better than hanging around any longer to look after those triplets.
I’m only showing one, because they all looked like this. Long hair, girly and slightly evil.
Another boy for the Temper family, short lived though as I got her to move out pretty quickly. I can’t even remember what I called it. Probably something normal.
Baloo Bloo became a young adult, but he seemed more interested in watching the maid wiggle her ass.
The real reason for him leaving was because I wanted to try for triplets, and by getting him (as well as Bounty and her sprog) out, it left three open spaces in the family.
Out on a date one night with her latest punter boyfriend, Jeyes became a fully fledged adult. I wish she’d put those legs away.
Persil wanted to be a Renaissance Sim. I’m sure he’ll make it, he has a dull job in a shop rather than a career so he has time to dedicate to it.
After a long life, Vileda finally became an elder.
He looks sweet, I hope he has a sweet attitude too.
Jeyes has to wait a while for this guy. She got close to him without realising that he was a teenager, and it wasn’t until he became a young adult that she could take advantage of him. That wasn’t terribly long before she was supposed to become an elder either. The clock’s ticking.
Persil here got brought home by the Police one night. Jeyes isn’t happy about that. Not happy at all.
I wonder if he has any idea just how many other men have been in this bed before him? As it’s generations old, even I can’t remember.
