the lives of over 100 sims
all his friends
He looks at the brand new fish tank he got and smiles. He loves fish, they’re so quiet and peaceful. All he needs to do is feed them and he can look at them for as long as he’d like.
But then he gets interrupted by seeing all the crap Celine put there. “They’re fish, they don’t care if you put a castle in their tank or not.” he told her, but she decorated the tank, and he did nothing.
The worst was when she hung those weird fish things on his wall. He hates decorations, doesn’t she know that? She tried to calm him down and assured him it adds character to the room. “But I don’t want the room to have character, I want the room to be as empty as possible.” he said and she promised if by the end of the week he won’t get used to it she’ll take it off. He didn’t say anything.
And then she said, “Hey, we should have brunch at your place sometimes, to celebrate your new house.” and he, as always, grunted and said nothing.
And they invited Celine’s family and their son Carel and his girlfriend Danae. It’s almost their one year anniversary and Mayne is afraid that she’s Carel’s one. Mayne absolutely hates Danae, she’s just so… so… Well, he’s not sure – But she’s not good enough for his son.
And Celine’s daughter Geri shares that feeling with him. She thinks they’re so disgusting, holding hands when other people are trying to eat.
And it’s not that she thinks romances in general are disgusting. Her mom’s ex-husband is dreamy, even when he’s munching on Mac n’ Cheese, which is the only thing her mom knows how to make. She thinks it’s really cool he’s a grown man living on his own, she wishes she would have lived on her own. That way she could have invited all her friends over every day. She bets he invites all his friends over every day.
It’s not that she hates her brother or his girlfriend either. Maybe she’s just not the lovey-dovey type.
Celine is the center of the conversation, going on and on about how she decorated the house and she thinks they can redo their kitchen themselves.
And Carel tells everyone about college. He got a new roommate this year and Danae and him joke about him. Mayne loves criticizing people so he doesn’t mind.
No one seems to take Mayne’s hints to leave, even when it starts getting dark, so he tries to carry on with his routine while everyone are doing whatever they’re doing. Gardening is definitely not that calming when Danae and Geri are throwing a ball right next to him but as usual, he just grunts to himself. He wants to tell Geri standing in the middle of the road isn’t safe but he knows no one drives in that area of Ville de Benefice anyway.
Luckily by bedtime everyone left already. He was hoping Carel would stay but he went back to campus with Danae.
- Moved to wordpress, I can’t stand blogger anymore. I’m keeping the old posts there but I’ll start posting here regularly now. I have used wordpress in the past and liked it so I figured, why not?
- I’m thinking Geri has a type, moody artistic guys. Hopefully it’s that and not just older guys.
- Mayne has 0 personality points in everything. I tried it and eventually he just turned out sloppy and anti-social so it’s not that interesting.
- Not much to write about in this update. He has this weird relationship with his ex-wife that I wanted to write about but that’s pretty much it. He also painted a bit. I’m letting him paint until he has enough paintings to open a gallery and he can start working on his LTW.
