Cooprider 2 - Round 2

Cooprider 2 - Round 2
The Real Porpoise of This

Today we visit the new house of Michaell Cooprider and Santos Vega. Yes, even more college grads. Santos is one of the elder sons of Coqui Vega. He grew up poor and often helped care for his 3 younger siblings. He loved it so much he strongly desires a family of his own. Michaell is the older sister of Kricket Cooprider who you've recently read about. Michaell and Santo met in high school, fell in love, went of to college together and are now ready to start their lives together. I hope their story will be happier than Kricket and Leeland's.

Little side note, I had forgotten to change my graphics settings when back to max when I reinstalled awhile ago, so the pictures will look much better from now on. Check out the details in Michaell's wedding dress! I'm very excited, but I'm a geek, so it happens.

Sim Rachel: Let's see another house of two recent college grads. If it goes like all the rest there will be a wedding any minute, then a honeymoon and a pregnancy will begin shortly after. Let's see, no one's in the yard, no party guests. Humm, let me check. Oh here's Michaell climbing into bed. Michaell what's going on?
Michael: I'm sick with the flu. I need to get some rest.
Sim Rachel: Oh no, this throws the whole schedule off. I mean, sorry to hear that, you get better dear. Oh the welcome wagon is here.

Sim Rachel: Wen I see your back.
Wen: Couldn't resist saying hi to more of the neighborhood.

Sim Rachel: Wow, boy the welcome wagon sure is thrilling aren't they watching TV?
Wen: Hey Michaell is sleeping and we haven't seen Santos yet.
Sim Rachel: Let me see if I can find him. *goes off looking for him*

Sim Rachel: There you are Santos. Looks like you found the WW.
Santos: Yep, I have a strong desire to be friends with Wen now.
Sim Rachel: I'm sure she'd be thrilled to be your friend.
Me: Sure, more blog time for her.
*Wen shoots nasty at me*

Sim Rachel: Feeling better Michaell?
Michaell: Much. Santos and I are having a little home date now that I'm up and about.
Sim Rachel: Great, so the wedding should be starting at any moment then?
Michaell: It's like 3 AM, we'll have to wait until the morning.

Santos: So wasn't it great how we both graduated with honors from college.
Michaell: Wonderful dear.
Sim Rachel: You Vega boys need to work on your pillow talk. I'll leave you two alone now.

Sim Rachel: Michaell do you have the flu again?
Michaell: I think so!
Sim Rachel: How terrible! And it's your wedding day!

Sim Rachel: Well you sure do look lovely, glowing even. Oh boy, wedding time!

Sim Rachel: Looks like quite a party. Everybody having fun?
*Nobody answers*
Sim Rachel: I guess they're having too much fun to talk.

Michaell: Yipee honeymoon time!
Sim Rachel: So that means as soon as they get back it will be pregnancy time.

Sim Rachel: Wait, what, Michaell. Why are you studying and not, umm, you know?
Michaell: My dream is to be a Criminal Mastermind. I got a job in the criminal track and they told me there were some skills I needed before I could get my first promotion so I thought I'd get started.
Sim Rachel: So you'd rather study than... you know?
Michaell: Yep. There will be time for a family later.

Michaell: I need mechanical and...

... creativity and...

...body. Ouch, that didn't go so well. Let me see....

Michaell: Much better.
Sim Rachel: Wait what are you wearing? Maternity clothes!?!?
Michaell: Yeah, turns out I didn't have the flu again.
Sim Rachel: Congratulations, I'm sure Santos is thrilled.
Michaell: He is. It wasn't my plan, but it's alright I wanted kids eventually as well.

Sim Rachel: Wait I thought you already had enough creativity?
Michaell: I do, I'm just working ahead. Oh boy, I've mastered creativity! Oh, no all the excitement....

...has put me into labor!!! Santosssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sim Rachel: Who have we here?
Michaell: This is our daughter, Dolphin.
Sim Rachel: How beautiful and?

Michaell: What do you mean and?
Sim Rachel: She's a twin right?
Michaell: No, just Dolphin.
Sim Rachel: *looks at me* Excellent!
Me: See I can resist the cheesecake twins. The last house didn't use cheesecake either, but no one believed me because they had natural twins.Sim Rachel: Likely story.

Sim Rachel: Oh Santos you must be SO excited to have a child.
Santos: Oh yes, I can hardly contain myself! She's going to be a daddy's girl too.

Santos: Whose the cutest idibity baby ever? You are!
Sim Rachel: *Looks at me* Is it just me or does this choke you up a little.
Me: *sniffle* Just you.
Sim Rachel: Lyer.

Sim Rachel: Ut-oh the nanny is here. *Whips out notebook* So far so good.

Sim Rachel: Feeds baby, good, good.

Sim Rachel: Strike one, Nanny places baby on the floor.

Sim Rachel: Oh good, now she's playing with the baby. Good, good.

Sim Rachel: And back on the floor, strike 2.

Sim Rachel: Ahh, of course she put the baby down to play chess.
Me: Notice how physically close Dolphin is to her crib. Seriously how hard is it to take 10 steps and put her in it?

Sim Rachel: Strike 3, she changed the diaper and put Dolphin back on the floor just a foot away from the stinky diaper. That can't be good for her.

Sim Rachel: Oh good now a neighbor has picked her up and is just standing there holding her with a strinky diaper. Quick Santos tell him a joke to get him to put her down, then grab her.

Santos: It worked. Oh poor Dolphin you were such a stinky baby. It's your birthday, you need to be a flowery baby.
Santos: You OK big giant voice in the sky?
Me: *sniffle* Yeah fine.

Santos: What a beautiful little baby girl you are. You look so much like your papa don't you?
Dolphin: Pa

Santos: Come on walk to Papa

Dolphin: Weeeeeeee!!!

Sim Rachel: Hey there you Michaell. Where have you been?
Michaell: Skilling. Santos loves doing all the parenting stuff, so I let him. I'm more than happy help when I need to.
Sim Rachel: I see. You know Michaell the gold walls with the green carpet and the pink baby furniture don't really go together.
Michaell: Oh hold on. *snaps*

Michaell: Better?
Sim Rachel: Much, but how'd you do that?
Michaell: Not sure, magic I guess.

Santos: Say Ted-e for Papa
Dolphin: Papa
Me: Excuse me, I ah, have something in my eye.

Sim Rachel: Dolphin whose your friend?
Dolphin: Nat-in An-er-sen
Me: Anyone that remembers the Anderson Pass a Sim family, that's Nathan from generation... 14.

Sim Rachel:Still skilling?
Michaell: Yep, just mastered mechanical! I'm off today, so i should get a promotion tomorrow.
Sim Rachel: Great!

Sim Rachel: Ah, I see you're back Wen.
Wen: Of course, Santos wants to be my friend, so here I am.

Sim Rachel: Looks like he did it.

Michaell: Oh crap!
Sim Rachel: Pregnant again?
Michaell: So much for the promotion.
Sim Rachel: Just for now. Well that's all for now. Victoria, my daughter, wants to report on what's been going on at college, so I'll see you all in awhile.

Me: The real question is will Michaell be able to avoid cheesecake for an entire round? I won't make her eat it, but I won't stop her either.
1 point for little Dolphin, my favorite animal BTW.

Rosada 3 Round 2

Rosada 3 Round 2
Yes, another new house. This is the last of the Rosada sisters, Amethyst, that has graduated and the first of the Vega kids, Bronx. Bronx is one of the older kids of Coqui Vega. He was on a search for love when is brother Santos greet Amethyst. they went to college together, got engaged, graduated and are now ready to start their lives together.

Sim Rachel: Hey Amethyst, hey Bronx! What a nice little house you two have picked out.
Amethyst: Oh thanks! Hey, I'll be right back.

Sim Rachel: That WAS quick. Where'd you go?
Amethsyt: Shopping. We've got a wedding starting soon. The hair dresser will be here any minute.

Sim Rachel: What a lovely new do.
Amethyst: Thanks! The hair dresser was named Rachel too. She said something about writing actions in Photoshop so she had a bunch of options for me. Oh yeah, it was called a re-color.
Sim Rachel: Rachel huh? Well it's lovely at any rate. Uhh, guests are arriving.
Sim Rachel: Wait a minute, why is everyone wearing their wedding dresses?
Me: Ummm, sorry, I forgot to change their formalwear back to something normal. My bad.
Amethyst: It's OK, it's sort of a theme wedding I suppose. Say, if everyone could find a spot, we're about to start.

Sim Rachel: Oh a lovely blue dress for a blue girl.

Sim Rachel: I love it when the bride actually gets out on the dance floor with the guests!
Sim Rachel: Oh hey here's the welcome wagon. Xuan, you sure have been showing up alot.
Xuan: Wen couldn't make it so she asked me to. She wanted to spend time with James, he's getting up there you know?
Sim Rachel: Yes, yes I do. Well, come on in, there's a heck of a party going on right now.

Sim Rachel: These two are pretty sweet together. Bronx is pretty quite for a popularity minded person.
Me: How do you know he's interested in being popular?
Sim Rachel: Ummm, he told me.
Me: So, it's not because he's a popularity sim?
Sim Rachel: No, he's not a sim, any more than I am
Me: I see. How silly of me.

Sim Rachel: What wedding reception is complete without a pillow fight?
Sim Rachel: See, another Roof Raiser, thanks to a pillow fight.
Bronx: I think it's really important that we recycle. I know everything just goes into the one garbage can, but we put the paper in there, we have to be recycling.Sim Rachel: Bronx, you might want to work on your pillow talk. Talking about recycling just isn't approriate right now.
Bronx: I was hoping you'd get bored and leave us alone. It was a plan.
Sim Rachel:OOOhhhh, sorry, excuse me.
Amethyst: Wait, so you're whole family has wings! How cool!
Monarch: Yep, and the people of Prosperity Point are SO open minded. They don't care that you have blue skin or that we have wings! Vanessa's are umm, missing at the moment, but I think we figured out how to get them back.

Sim Rachel: Where you going Amethyst?
Amethyst: Work! I got a job in the business career track. It's my first day! I really want to be a Business Tycoon! Bronx is inside, you can hang out with him for awhile.
Sim Rachel: Great, I'll let you get on your way so you're not late. This will give me an opportunity to get to know Bronx a little better. You know some one-on-one time.
Sim Rachel: Wait, where'd all these people come from?
Bronx: Oh hi Rachel, come hang out. My brother, England, a couple friends from college and this woman Jessamyn who just happened by, and I are all getting to know each other better.
Sim Rachel: Sure, can't hurt.
Sim Rachel: Hey Amethyst, how was work?
Amethyst: I don't fell so good.

Amethyst: Thanks for coming over Mercedes. Bronx and I are trying to make a lot of friends. You see both our jobs require quite a few. I want to be a Business Tycoon and Bronx wants to be Captain Hero.
Me: Plus I want you to scout out lots of potential mates for your kids to come.
Amethyst: What? Huh, what was that?
Me: *Whiseling*

Amethyst: Oh my goodness, I'm pregnant!
Sim Rachel: Yes, this seems to be the way things go. Move into new house, promptly get married, and get pregnant on your honeymoon.
Me: *Still whiseling*

Sim Rachel: Ahh, so sweet Bronx, you brought Amethyst flowers.
Bronx: Of course, we had a wonderful date, what else would I do?
Sim Rachel: Oh and look Jackie Burton came home from work with you. I've heard her family is a real mess.
Bronx: oh really? Well, I'm just looking for more friends, doesn't really matter what their families like. I'd befriend a Dante.

Sim Rachel: Man you guys get a lot of visitors.
Amethyst: So then I danced around like a monkey.
Gage Uglacy: What a funny joke! Let's be friends!
Amethyst: GREAT!

Sim Rachel: Hey Victoria! You're stopping by too huh?
Victoria: Hey Mom, yep. Checking stuff out. I heard this house is a hot bed for towns people, so I thought I'd see what's up. Look, there's Candi Simmers, the writer of the Uglacy Legacy. She's an avid simmer too.

Sim Rachel: Speaking of an Uglacy, Gage is in a terrible fight with Sandra Profitt. Why do all these towns people come to the lots and get in fights? It's so weird, I didn't even think these two knew each other.
Gage: Take that! We might not be attractive, but we can kick some botty!
*Meanwhile, outside*

Victoria: Hey look Mom, someone other than you is having a kid.
Sim Rachel: There have been lots of births around here since you headed off to college dear, mostly by the Rosada sisters. 5 boys and 1 girl.

Sim Rachel: Another boy, man these Rosada ladies seem to pop out boys!
Amethyst: This is my son Tanzanite. We're naming our kids after gem stones. I had girl names like Ruby and Emerald picked out. Thank goodness for Google, it helped me find ones that worked for boys. Wow that hurt, I'm glad that's...

...AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!Sim Rachel: *shoots nasty look at me* MORE cheesecake twins!
Me: No, noone here even knows how to make it yet. So much for my plan of a single birth in this house. Even when I don't plan twins I don't get them. I swear I don't have any hacks for it either.

Amethyst: Another son, Zircon. Thanks again to Google.
Sim Rachel: More little blue babies. Soon the regualr human skin tones will be minorities.
Bronx: You're amazing honey, giving birth to two wonderful, healthy little boys!
Sim Rachel: Humm, the nanny must be here. *Whips out bad nanny notebook*
Sim Rachel: Yep, once again she fed the babies and laid them on the floor to sleep all day. Where is she anyway?
Sim Rachel: Of course, playing chess. Yeah, that's great child care!
Sim Rachel: Oh thank goodness Amethyst is home to tend to the little ones.
Amethyst: I got promoted too, one step closer to my goal

Sim Rachel: I have to tell you about the TERRIBLE job the nanny did today.
Sim Rachel: She fed the babies, but instead of putting them back in their cribs she just left them on the kitchen floor while she went and played chess.
Amethyst: You've got to be kidding me! I'll have to call the service and see if they can send over someone better.
Me: *in a hussed voice so no one can hear* Interesting side note, this is the first house
Sim Rachel actually physically showed up at. She isn't very social. I about fell off my chair when she walked by.
Bronx: Alright it's a baby birthday party! Who could resist?
Sim Rachel: Judging from the turn out, not too many people.

Sim Rachel: See, this is the same party and these are almost all different people in this shot. It is a HUGE party.
Bronx: That's it Zircon, one foot in front of the other.
Amethyst: Tanzanite, you're going to use the potty like a big boy for Mommy, aren't you?

Sim Rachel: Hey ahhh Bronx, remember how I told you the Burton sisters don't get along? Well, you've got two of them in the house at the same time.
Bronx: Doesn't matter to me, I'll be friends with both of them.

Sim Rachel: Don't say I didn't warn you Bronx.
Sim Rachel: Whatcha doing Amethyst?
Amethyst: I think I have all the Charisma I could ever need, thanks to my home putting green.
Sim Rachel: Great. Well, it's been great visiting with you, but I still have 3 more new houses to visit and Victoria has a University update before we get back to my house, so I had better take off. See you next week.
Amethyst: See Ya Rachel. Bring some more friends along when you come back.

Me: So ends the round with this family.
