Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale (Chapter 7)

Hello World! As promised, this chapter contains various house pictures. This build took forever! I can never think of house plans when building but this time I built a house based on our old house. We no longer live in that house; we bought our own little, cute house and left the rental. Now on to the story:

Vivian: I showed Genji the pictures the real estate agent gave me. Genji liked the house and immediately booked a showing. I’m very excited! I have never bought a house with anyone before.

The house is already furnished in an eclectic style. I am considering not changing the décor.

Hmm, this bathroom needs a different paint color than beige.

…..Oh, he’s cleaning. I should have guessed. He’s such a neat freak.

Genji: Wow, I can’t wait to decorate for the holidays!

Vivian: Good one, Genji. Instead, how about we give them a present they’ll never forgot….drain them dry! Muah ha ha! I don’t think he appreciated my suggestion.

The second door in the spare room leads to the backyard.

So…what do you think, Genji? Buy it or not?

Genji: Let’s do it!

Gameplay Notes:

  • I uploaded this house to the gallery. My user name: VampCatz.
  • The 4th bedroom was actually an add-on. It looked like it was supposed to be an enclosed patio. We have three children and used that room as a bedroom.
  • The spare room was really a garage but at the time of the house build, I didn’t know how to make a garage. Voila! Spare room.
  • I don’t know if anyone noticed but the Sim that Vivian drank from was living in this house. (Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale (Chapter 6)
  • I’m probably not going to elaborate on why the house is already furnished and what happened to the family living there but if anyone wants to give me some ideas, leave a comment. I’ll make up a story with pictures based on comments.

Thanks for reading! And, of course, Happy Simming!

Promoting Sims 4

I haven’t gone anywhere. I am taking a break before I start writing season 10 (click here for Season Nine). I have an idea on where things are going, but I kind of want to let things sit for a while. Meanwhile, I have been playing Sims 4 and I looked into streaming on Twitch. […]

Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale (Chapter 6)

Hello! Thanks for stopping by! We bought a house last month and are in the process of unpacking everything. We didn’t have an internet connection until a few days ago so I was able to post another chapter until now. I am very sore and tired since moving. My recovery time from strenuous activity seams to be longer than expected. Sigh. I’m hoping to feel somewhat normal soon. It has been 2 years since being diagnosed with breast cancer and I still get very tired. Anyway, enjoy the new chapter!

Genji and I have been enjoying being together. Even though, he likes to cook, especially grilled cheese, he’s not very good at it. The other day he burnt something and almost burned the house down!

05-29-17_6-01-32 PM.png

05-29-17_6-02-25 PM.png

We had to race outside to avoid catching on fire. The fire was put out before we burned to a crisp in the sun.

05-29-17_6-03-13 PM

I love my little house but my neighbors have been acting odd lately. I’m not sure what’s going on. Genji and I have discussed moving before and didn’t but this time we’re serious. The neighbors are weirding us out.

07-05-17_7-08-23 PM
Our neighbor stood like this for hours. Shower? Spying? I do’t know just weirdness.

06-04-17_2-30-40 PM

07-05-17_9-53-15 AM

I think I found the perfect house! It has a fireplace, kitchen, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It’s even a decent price! Genji and I will have a look at it in a few days.

06-27-17_11-04-31 AM.png

Will they buy the house? Will there be a walk-through with the readers? Will the new neighbors also dress weirdly? Stayed tuned for the next episode of Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale.  If you missed the last chapter, here’s a link …. Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale (Chapter 5)

Thanks for reading! Happy Simming!

Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale (Chapter 5)

Hello, I recently bought the Parenthood Pack and haven’t been able to stop playing long enough to post. Really enjoying the new pack! I changed the title from Whims, Wishes and Insanity to Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale because I thought it was too long.  FYI: Vivian and Genji are married, now. Sorry about the lack of pictures, I took some but can’t find them.

Genji and I are now married. We had a private wedding in San Myshuno’s beautiful Central Park. I love Genji so much so that I could not bear to ever part ways with him. I offered to turn him into a vampire. He accepted.  I thoroughly enjoyed telling my ex-fiance the news which he did not take well and left in a huff.

05-16-17_2-26-23 PM

Shh, be very quiet, I’m hunting humans. Hee, Hee.

05-16-17_2-35-55 PMGnats! Must! Catch! Gnats!

05-16-17_2-36-39 PM

Oh, hello there. Where are you going? Don’t run away! Come back here right now!

05-16-17_2-38-06 PM

I had to chase him into the bathroom. Eww, gross, eating in the bathroom.

Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 4)

Hello! Surgery went well. My surgeon removed the seroma from my left breast. And I’m feeling better, not 100% better but better. She sent the seroma tissue off to the lab and it came back negative for bacteria and cancer cells. Yay!! Next week will be the third week since my surgery, I’m hoping to continue to recover. I’m very tired of being sick. Now, time for a Vivian and Genji  update! But first, I must apologize for any bad grammar or punctuation. I still am battling bouts of chemo brain so bear with me. Hopefully, it’ll go away soon.

If you missed Chapter 3, follow the link. Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 3).

I’m ecstatic that Genji stayed the night. I hope he will stay with me forever. He’s so tasty. Yum! Oops, I forgot Paolo was here.

25

Time to clean up. I wonder where Paolo went maybe he left for home. Whatever, time to clean up.

26.png

Oh, hello Vladislaus. How did you get in my house? Let me use my powers to make you go away….grrr, he blocked them.

27.png

Nice try but you failed in your attempt, Vladislaus. I will never return to you home! Never!

28.png

Genji, meet Vladislaus Straud. Vladislaus meet Genji. Vlad doesn’t look very happy about Genji being in the house. He was betrothed to Vivian. Yes, I said was. She left in search of fun, humans and sunlight. No, she doesn’t want to become a human. 

29

Meet the newest thief in Newcrest.

Gameplay & Other Notes:

  • Seroma is a deposit of lymph formed in the body in response to surgery or physical trauma. These are very common after surgery. I had one from November 2016 to June 2017.
  • Paolo sat and stared at the TV for quite awhile. I think he had too much juice. I really thought he was watching TV until I looked at the picture I took.
  • I have no idea why she is in her swimsuit. She didn’t go swimming.
  • My desktop has a virus and my laptop heats up when I play Sims 3 or Sims 4. Now, that I feel bit better, I’m going to fix or have someone else fix my desktop so I can play Sims 4 on it. My laptop has several games on it and can’t handle them all. Sims is the only one that heats it up.

Until next time, thanks for reading and Happy Simming!

Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 3)

For a few days, Vivian hung around her house, painting and learning new vampire lore. She didn’t know what was in store for her. She soon found out after receiving a phone call from Genji. She thought that he wanted to meet at the gym to workout. Instead, he nervously asked her out. “Good thing, I wore my little black dress, thought Vivian”.  Genji confessed that he felt apprehensive about dating a vampire.

Vivian: “Oh Genji, don’t worry, I won’t hurt you. I really do have feelings for you. Yes, I would love to go out with you tonight!”

16

Vivian: “How’s this? Do you feel better now? No more worries, right? Now, let’s go paint the town red..err, um, I mean, let’s go Party!!”

17

“I feel alive when I’m with Genji, such a sweet man.”

18

Vivian: “This is so fun! The last party I went to was boring and stuffy. No one danced and the only music was from a pipe organ. I could dance all night!”

Genji: “Good, cause I’m a party machine!”

19

20

Vivian: “Genji, I need to go inside, the sun is rising. Will you stay with me? I don’t want to be alone anymore. Coming to this party with you made me realize how much I missed you.”

21

Of course, Genji stayed with Vivian.

22

Genji: “Thanks for making me a grilled cheese sandwich. My friend, Palo is at the door, mind if he comes inside.” (What on earth is Vivan doing? She better watch the grilled cheese. I would hate for a fire to start.)

23

Why does everyone head to the globe for a drink?

24

I missed my weekly posting. Well, I would like to post weekly. The week catches up to me and bam! it’s been two weeks. Good news, I’m finally going to have my breast reconstruction surgery. Yay! I’m hoping  that my surgery will be the end of me feeling poorly. Cancer is awful, cancer treatment is awful. I don’t know which is worse, the cancer treatment or the recovery from those treatments. Anyhow, here are the links to chapter 1 and 2. Happy Simming!! Thanks for reading!

Short Post: My Sims’ Neighbors

When playing Sims 4, I have noticed new and interesting neighbors. I love how my Sims’ neighbors dress and their hairstyles. Pictured here is a lovely lady enjoying a nice sunny day. Her hair is a nice shade of blue.

05-15-17_1-26-33 PM

Here are two neighbors enjoying a pleasant conversation. I love the beard and hair combo.

05-15-17_1-22-10 PM

What a face! I wonder what happened to him.

05-16-17_6-19-24 PM

Mmmm, baked potatoes. Where is she going? I’ve never seen this before. Usually, they stay and eat by the grill. I followed her to see where she was going but she disappeared.

05-16-17_6-15-25 PM

That’s all for now. Next blog will be an update to Vivian and Genji’s story.

Thanks for reading! Happy Simming!

Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 2)

Last chapter (Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 1)), Genji accepted Vivian’s invitation to come over.

Genji suggested that we go to a party. I put some clothes on and off we went. I had a great time dancing. Hmmm….I think I’m a little underdressed. Good thing I packed some extra clothes.

5

Ta-dah! My all important little black dress! Time to party!

6

7

I had a wonderful time with Genji, we stayed up all night. I would still be sleeping but I had terrible nightmare. Well, since I’m awake, I might as well get up.

8

Oh my! What a scary movie!! I should have waited and watched it with Genji. It did make me hungry. Time to visit a neighborhood.

9

Knock, knock…Anyone home?

Summer: Woo hoo! Exercise! Oh, hey there! Go on in, I’ll be right there!

10

Vivian: Did you hear about Mary? She ran off and joined the circus!

Summer: *Umm*

11

I want to suck your blood! HeeHee

1213

Ahh! I feel energized and inspired! Thanks, Summer, see you later.

14

So, energized after drinking from Summer. I’m so glad I caught her after she exercised. Painting and reading, my two favorite things to do made more fun when done together. Plus, I need to catch up on my learning. I’ve been putting it off. Shame on me, since I really need to learn the secrets of sun resistance.

15

Gameplay Notes:

  • Last chapter, she greeted Genji without anything on. She even went dancing in her birthday suit. She put on her swimsuit. I made her change her clothes from her swimsuit to a dress. The rest of time, well, Vivian wears whatever she wants.
  • Summer’s roommate didn’t even bat an eye during Vivian’s visit.
  • Vivian read and painted at the same time. I didn’t know Sims could multi-task like that. I know they can talk and watch Tv or eat but not paint and read.
  • Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 1)

Thanks for reading! Happy Simming!
