George Yehsreh ( Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 881668 Tim) and Jen Driann (Jen's self-sim) have survived twin toddlers. Here they are with their children Charlie and Adrianna (now where did I get those names  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 97206)
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 YehsrehDriannFamily_zps35191bd7

Karyn Tatum ( Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 Elle) broke off her engagement with Colonel Mustard ( Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 881668 to lilipad at MTS2). It's interesting, when using the breakup hack, some aspects of BFF continue. Several times Colonel Mustard was seen stalking her house - but he didn't bring either a knife or revolver  laughin . But he got his revenge, he... stole her newspaper!  affraid
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 KarynBreaksWithMustard_zpsac1031ff

She immediately got engaged with Toni's Kishu Rohini. Now Kishu is at the top of EliseLuong's Pharma Sales career, and Karyn is up-and-coming in the same career. Hmmm... thinkin\' But they do seem very happy together.
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 KarynKishuEngaged_zpsa80a0d23Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 KarynKishu_zps2ca53475

Ari's Nora is in the very difficult career Pharma Industry (again by EliseLuong) and recently met Sean Bean (a very early contribution to MTS2 by Ellenaj).

Ulli  (self-sim) came home with Delphy - who now has a baby daughter Delphine

One thing led to another and Huor ( Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 Elle) and Ulli now have a baby on the way. I've used the maternity recolors by BlakeS5678 on MTS2. The program assigns the dresses - and it's green! (Well, sort of, anyway)

Speaking of Uni...
My Sissy gave me all of her old TS2 EPs and SPs, as she is now playing Sims 4.
I have never owned Uni and also got Seasons in the deal, too.
Not sure if OFB was included in the stash...  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 553217
Anyhoo, I have heard so many pros and cons about Uni (including the ones I have read in this thread), that I am still on the fence about installing it.
A few folks have told me I am missing out (especially with Seasons), but I'm just not ready to add those two EPs to my game at this time.
It's good to know, however, that I have the option readily available when and IF I DO decide to install Uni and Seasons! Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 21650

Mac, I still can't get over how different Karyn Tatum looks in YOUR game compared to Elle's and mine.
It's a mind blower!

It appears that Elle's Karyn in both her game and my games are pretty much identical.
Here is a composite image of Karyn in Elle's game (top left), Mac's (top right) and in the bottom half of the snapshot, how Karyn appears in my game.

Karyn Times Three

A lot of a sims looks are in the hairdo. I think that explains much about the different looks of Karyn T. Much comes also in the play and just when a pic is taken. My (hottie) Karyn is a lot of fun to play.  wow!  laughin She couldn't be more different from Nora or, for that matter, Toni's new Celeste.

Actually Delphy is married to Tovia, a creation of Jen's (miss both her and her creations Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 729422) and Delphine is their daughter. Elle's Huor (a Christmas elf) is the dad of Ulli's baby to be.

I like a lot of the stuff in the seasons expansion pack although lightning can be lethal if you don't use a hack to make it less so. "Leftovers" is enough to make this pack worth it - makes cooking and eating so much easier. Maybe it's included in some packs that came after seasons, check how your fridges work. It's nice, too, to have the seasons pass, although winter can be demanding on your video card and 'puter. I used to leave winter out of the sequence.

I've never really gotten into all the things that came with OFB - skills and opening up businesses - make the sims seem too much like work!  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 922586

Much of one's reaction to Uni depends on one's own college experience. If college was hijinks and rah-rah, go for it, but if, like for me, college was swot, swot, swot, then don't bother. I think that at one time Harvard was very much the former - trust fund kids having fun. By the time I got there it was actually about education.  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 804361  

There are hacks listed in my thread that minimize the pain of Sims Uni and the duration of a YA's time in Uni.

Two of these expansions, however, come with more careers: Seasons (Architecture, Dance (had to have this for a certain person!  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 247485 ), Entertainment, Intelligence, and Oceanography), Uni (Artist, Natural Scientist, Paranormal, and ShowBiz). I'm big on careers, and must have around 40 non-maxis ones.

I think even with different hair, your Karyn looks nothing like Elle's original (her facial features aren't the same), which is rather strange, but your Karyn is STILL lovely!
MY Karyn is also a delight to play, too, btw.  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 940149

Oops! My bad! Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 100574

Yes, "Leftovers" came with EPs after Seasons, so I have been enjoying that feature for awhile now.
As far as the four seasons go, I guess I am the same with Sims 2 as I am in real life.
I rather like warm, temperate weather year 'round. Perhaps I belong in Hawaii or San Diego as do my Sims!  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 134529
I like that they can play chess and do ANY outdoor activity all year long without concerns about the elements.

The one thing you mentioned that I am MOST on the fence about is the fabulous careers that come with Uni and Seasons.
I think you mentioned the careers that came with an EP that I have (Freetime):  Architecture, Dance, Entertainment, Intelligence, and Oceanography
Seasons came with:  Adventurer, Education, Gamer, Journalism, Law, and Music ... I think!?!  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 553217
And Uni brings to the game 4 new careers for college grads: Artist, Natural Scientist, Paranormal and Show Biz (go figure  Rolling Eyes )

For as much as I like the idea of the above careers in my game, like you said, Mac...
I can always download similar ones from trustworthy, reputable modders!  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 584675

Sugah - you're probably right about which careers came with which EP's. I just reached into my stack of Prima guides and probably pulled the wrong book.

As far as I know, I'm not using any pillow hacks. The daybed is an old MTS2 contribution here. You might put the quilts on and see what happens.

Stop the presses! Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 366915

Ulli and Huor have just had a baby girl, Bronwynne (I was trying for a boy and restored a saved game around 9 times, but the gender must be set at some point prior to birth). Nevertheless, I'm sure that Ulli and Huor will give the little tyke all sorts of love Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 508493
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 Snapshot_5fc2d39c_612f2f80_zpsd6da37f1

Who says we don't get involved with our pixel creations? verklempt

Huor and Ulli had a very private wedding. It occurred after the birth of Bronwynne. Now the cliche is that Huor "made an honest woman" out of Ulli. I really think that, in this day and age Huor "made an honest man" out of Huor! Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 971462
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 UlliHuorWedding_zpsdec2fad5

Toni's Nicklaus and Ari's Darcy are now engaged and living together.  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 to both creators! They should make beautiful babies. Darcy is Family/Scorpio Tourism(5)/Arts while Nicklaus is Knowledge/Leo Model(5)/Dance
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 TroutWintersEngagement_zps85998a0b

I've just wound up a season (spring) in my 'hood and am starting a new cycle. As sims get to level 10 in their careers and their kids move out, I've been moving them to a "retirement" neighborhood. I no longer play them, so they don't age, but they still walk by in my main 'hood, can be invited over, and surely will be present for their grandkids. Still, I miss Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 503793 Nerissa and Nathaniel, Jack and Jacqueline, Sugah and Keanu, Toni and Kostos, and... M&M! Elle, Ulli, and Em are still around, though.

The census for my active 'hood is now: 27 single males, 64 single females, 42 MF couples, and 7 FF couples. Waiting in the wings are 14M/10F YA, 2/1 Teens, 2/4 Children, 0/2 Toddlers, and 0/3 babies.

On to Summer! sunny

The cut scenes are cute. I usually have them turned off because they get repetitive and because it interferes with my picture taking. I played for the longest time without them because my old laptop wouldn't support them.

I wonder if there's a hack to get rid of those college NPCs, they are super annoying. I try to ignore them as much as possible. When they aren't around you definitely see less of the college hijinks. The playable students and the dormies don't seem to do as much of that rah rah nonsense that you're talking about.

Jen and George certainly have cute children.

Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 97206 I'm glad that's all he did.

I like Ulli's maternity dress. Very cute.

Sugah - I would recommend installing university. Even if you don't like the university part of it, you don't have to send sims there, it's optional. (They do tend to cry about not going, even when there's not an attached college. Rolling Eyes ) But it might be worth it for the additional objects, careers, hair and clothing options. I could see why you might not want to install seasons though. Personally it's one of my favorites because I enjoy the change in seasons. You do have to watch out for sims overheating, getting too cold, or getting struck by lightening, but those things haven't been a problem for my sims. You do have to be a little more careful though. I think it adds a lot to the game, with fishing and gardening and leftovers. If you decided to install it for the other features, besides weather, you can set the seasons in your neighborhood. So you could avoid winter completely or make it constantly spring or summer if you'd like. There are also mods that will turn off weather. But it seems like a big hassle to go to all that trouble to disable the main feature of the EP. The options are there though to get rid of or tone down some of those aspects. Those are my thoughts on those two EPs, if you wanted another opinion. I agree with mac about OFB, it is lot of work. I like the ability to have businesses, but it would be nice if they would run themselves better and didn't take so much babysitting. I haven't gotten good at it.

I remember feeling so bad the first time that happened. I had meant to send the oldest Gavigan boy to college, but didn't get him to the phone in time. I do wish that only the knowledge sims would be upset by not going to college.

Mac, I checked out the link to Fresh Prince's Camelot Wood Daybed finally.
The way it's made, I can see that the 3 decorative pillows would pick up the texture of the bedding or head pillows.
VERY cool! I've downloaded it and will be using FP's daybed in my own game.
Thanks! Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 687310

Em, thank you for your feedback on Uni and Seasons.
Your thoughts mirror what others have said (Elle and Mac mainly) and I appreciate what you've shared.
I have not given up on the idea of installing either (esp knowing I can turn off some of the seasons and do not have to send the teens to Uni, if I don't like the experience). Good to know! Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 7255

Sugah, I know each season is supposed to have some strength or other, but I can never remember what. One is supposed to make sims gain skill points faster, but I can't remember if it's autumn or spring.

I love having seasons, but that's probably mostly because I love the gardening. I also use a calendar that has built-in holidays, and I'll often redecorate a little for each season.

Hi Cher64

Summer: Friendly Socials  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 996440  have more impact, energy decays more slowly when sims are outdoors
Fall: Learning (increased big time!)  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 404843  , social decays more slowly when sims are outdoors
Winter: Socials between family members are increased  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 319331  , hunger decays more slowly when sims are outdoors
Spring: (When a young man's fancy...) Romantic Socials  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 508493   have more impact, Hygiene decays more slowly when sims are outdoors

Hope these help

Both Toni's Hogan  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 and Ari's Ayleth  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 are in the Classical Music career. This is different from the Maxis music career and is one of several on MTS2. This one gives inventory items at certain promotions. Also has great costumes! Here, he proposed and she accepted.
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 HoganAstraEngaged_zps5b9674e4

Ari's Ayleth and LoWisa's Stella are both vets and very much involved with each other. They're both at level 8 in the Vet career. There are several vet careers. This one is a toughie. When they weren't working they were improving their skills and spent 5 days without a career advancement. A good LTW for this career is the no-trump max 7 skills, since they'll be most of the way there at level 10.
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 VetsAylethStella_zpsadc73c68

They bought a new house together. A brilliant 1x1 by ScaryRob on MTS2 It's the best 1x1 I've seen. It has four open-plan levels: Ground: garage, 1st floor: Kitchen and half bath, 2nd floor: Living, 3rd floor: Bedroom and full bath. Unfurnished at around 40K. Since the rooms are open-plan, it's best suited for a single or couple. Really award-winning exterior architecture. 
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 AylethStellaNewHome_zps651dfcf3

Three (count 'em) balconies. Ayleth and Stella both have the science hobby and needed logic as well
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 AylethStellaTwinTelescopes_zps294f9eaa

Ayleth proposed engagement to Stella and she accepted. BTW, with these two lovely vets on duty, kitties were jumping into their carriers and doggies were whining at the front door with their leashes in their mouths.  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 97206

Now and then one gets sims that one really gets involved with and starts to love... Years ago, Nerissa, an NPC captured my heart, was ditched by one guy but found happiness with another. She even survived a neighborhood crash. She and Sugah's Nathaniel had two daughters and are now grandparents.

Now along come two attractiveness-challenged simmies - both in-game offspring of celebs. Germain Depardieu is the son of Gerard Depardieu and Audrey Tautou, and has his dad's schnozz. Agatha Peel is the daughter of Emma Peel and Hugh Laurie and has her own rather unique beauty. Germain was taken with her when he was a teen and she a child. They kept up with each other when he went to college and now that she was in college, he visited and proposed...
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GermainAgathaProposal1_zps8743e82dMac's 'Hood - Page 36 GermainAgathaProposal2_zpsde5a164b

And she happily accepted!  blinkinhearts
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GermainAgathaProposal3_zps1cd5107aMac's 'Hood - Page 36 GermainAgathaProposal4_zps324ca188

Agatha wasn't much of a hand at cooking, but she did make some subs for dinner. lientebollemeis on MTS2 has contributed some really delicious-sounding subs  droolin  as Sims 2 foods (only require lunch meat sandwich skill). In RL, these are served by a deli in his home town. Almost worth making a pilgrimage to Netherlands! He's also contributed a large number of great careers!
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GermainAgathaHoldingHands_zpsb9539238

The night before finals, she said "Why study, I've got 'em nailed"   Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 12612 So she ditched her single sleep sofa with matching cushions, put a double mattress on the floor and called Germain. It wasn't a study date!
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GermainAgathaPre_zps09fec664

(PG interlude)

Later on... Then, while he was still asleep, she was thinking "We need to work on this some more"  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 508493
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GermainAgathaAsleep1_zps20e34086Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GermainAgathaAsleep2_zps25a4d6a3

She's now an adult and has moved into the main neighborhood. I'm sure that as soon as Germain's thread becomes active, she'll be moving in with him. Then marriage, then kids... That should be interesting!

It requires University, BonVoyage and Freetime (because of the selected inventory items), so maybe it's not compatible with my game, since I don't play with Uni?!?
I'm gonna have to check that 1 x 1 lot out by ScaryRob, too.
I like the idea of three balconies and an open floor plan. Thanks!

Ayleth and Stella are a stunning couple. Beautiful pair!

I'd give the career a go anyway. Uni does have a few musical instruments (which are the career awards - ongoing at several levels).

I don't really know what would happen if one of them were called for and uni wasn't there. They don't appear with the usual career awards but just show up in inventory.

lientebollemeis has a classical music career here which might suit your taste better. For some reason a hack (which one Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 62525) I use disables his many great careers. His classical music career looks really good! Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 12612

Do check out ScaryRob's 1x1. I've tried several over the years and really like this one. My guess is that ScaryRob is an architect in RL.  Do bear in mind that the lot wouldn't work too well beyond a single or a couple.

I'm thinking I may try that one out, since it doesn't mention musical instruments that might've come with Uni, Mac.
Better safe than sorry. I think Lientebollemeis' Classical Music Career only requires base game! Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 21650

Lots going on in mac's 'hood... Gillian Murphy and Ethan Stiefel (Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 Toni) have a new daughter, Natalia
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GillianNatalia_zpsf64b4449
And the family that dances together stays together!
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 StiefelMurphyFamilyDancing_zps9f92a334

Meanwhile Toni's Damien and the stunning Carolyn Cole (Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 Elle) got married
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 CarolynColeDamienWedding_zps6aafa1ca
And they have a new daughter, Kitty Cole (I had to crop this picture - sometimes the wrists appear unnaturally thin, so crop 'em out) Still a very loving pic of mom and baby  blinkinhearts

Rohan, the son of Beren Erchamion and Luthien Tinuviel and Clarissa (by Birdgurl) became engaged. He was just out of univ and she's been around for a while, so she popped the question!
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 ClarissaProposingToRohan_zpsade58dcb

Benjamin May (Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 Ulli) and Anna Lisica (by Lisica022 on TSR  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713) are also engaged. Benjamin is Knowledge/Scorpio Pharma Industry/Science while Anna is Family/Pisces Pharma Sales/Arts. Lucky the pharma company that lands the two of them  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 12612
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 BenjaminMayProposingAnnaLisica_zps9d6b5037

The social event of the season was another pirate wedding - Ari's Miranda Moon and Brendan (aka Jean Lafitte)  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 They're both pirates (both at level 7, quartermaster). They had their wedding on the beach at Cher's new beach house: Kingfisher.  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 558785 Note that since the wedding was a nighttime affair, some of the pictures are a bit dark.

Jean toasts his new bride
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 ToastingMiranda_zps06f80720

The wedding buffet on the porch looked so nice that I had to take a picture of it. All the pirates went indoors to eat.
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 WeddingBuffet_zps7938f060

And here they are... Jean in the pink with his back to the camera, then Zoe (dancing girl, honorary pirate, married to Brendan Teach), then Miranda - the new bride, Jacqueline Sparrow, Jack Sparrow, and Brendan Teach. All except Jack Sparrow are by Ari.
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 JeanMirandaWeddingDinner_zpsfa4b471b

Jack and Brendan enjoy a joke: "How do you tell the bride at a pirate wedding?"  "I don't know, how do you tell the bride at a pirate wedding???"  "She's the one with the rhinestones on her eye patch!"  Arrr  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 97206 Arrr  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 97206 Arrr  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 97206
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 PirateJoke_zpsf0e59b71

After all the guests left, Miranda and Jean had a quiet time together around a beach fire.
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 JeanMirandaCampfire_zps9af82a8a

They wasted little time (and the child of two of Ari's sims will surely be stunning). Miranda's waiting her moment relaxing on the beach.
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 PregnantMirandaOnBeach_zps2bc5a973

They have an new daughter, Svetlana. I picked the name of an Artist in St.Petersburg, Russia, who inherited her late mom's kitty and has put it in all sorts of art classics - from renaissance painters, thru impressionists, thru moderns. We actually have two of her reprints framed and hanging in our new house (the Manet and the Hokusai). For a lot of fun, check out her website

Jeremy Gique wanted to be sure of one of the very prettiest sim offspring ever... Ruth Aster (daughter of two of Ari's simmies  wow!  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713) so he proposed and... she accepted!
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 RuthAsterJeremyGique_zpsc93add95

They had a very quiet wedding - just the two of them. But that didn't mean she didn't get to wear a beautiful wedding dress
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 AsterGiqueWedding_zps60e284e0Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 AsterGiquePostWeddingDinner_zps552e1237

Ginny Genni is the daughter of Giada (Jen  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 - we miss you) and Toni's Neil  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 Here she is as a child with her mom.
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GiadaGinny_zpsd25b9029

She's turned into a very pretty teenager and is now off to college - a future dancer! In the background is the start of a self-portrait she was making when she was a child.
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GiadaTeenBallet_zps8ce4cd8d

Ari's Leaf, who became smitten  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 508493 with Toni's Lana, broke off his engagement with Blossom ( Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 Elle). But soon Blossom found true - and lasting - love with the celeb Sean Bean
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 BlossomBeanEngagement_zps28700e70

All sorts of engagements between born-in-game sims. Fred is the son of Toni's Wil and Maeve (from SimTR). Shirley is the daughter of Geoff Webster ( Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 367799 SimPly Edward, I think) and the celeb Julianne Hough.
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 FredToniShirleyHoughEngagement_zps6c1fd85b

And Kane Sugah (son of Sugah's self-sim and Keanu Reeves) and Lily Potter (daughter of the celeb Harry Potter and BeckyLynn's Vanessa) became engaged. Looks like Sugah will have some grandchildren at last!
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 KaneSugarLilyPotterEngagement_zps6801dfb0

Toni  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 just contributed Thomas (I'm using him - minus the hat, which doesn't work too well with other clothing) He's Knowledge/Taurus Military(doh)/Culinary. I set him up to be the perfect match for Crystal Sugah, Sugah and Keanu's daughter, then put him into a house next door. You can see the result!

Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 ThomasCrystal5_zps6dea6d39

They soon became engaged. Thomas popped the question during breakfast. Dr. Sandra Bullock didn't seem to notice - even when he had his hand in her breakfast plate
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 ThomasCrystalEngaged_zps8f19de83

But Thomas knows he has to make a good impression on Crystal's dog Honey. If it's "paws down", it's all over!
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 ThomasHoney_zpsaaa63e49

Thomas passed the Honey test and he and Crystal had a bit of a snuggle while Honey was left to her own devices...

Wow! All these engagements and weddings and babies! So much excitement! dancintrio

Thrilled to see my simmies' next generation (Neil's daughter) and tickled pink by Thomas and Crystal's relationship. Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 12612 sunny I'm thinking Honey might be a bit jealous! Is it like her to knock over the garbage can?!

Agatha Peel moved in with Germain Depardieu. Here they're entertaining visiting neighbors: celebs Luthien Tinuviel and Beren Erchamion, and Clara Bloom, the born-in-game daughter of Orlando Bloom and Ari's Lilah
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 AgathaGermainLunchNeighbors_zps5eaf5e22

So many of the lovely ladies contributed on this site are, quite frankly, DDG (drop-dead-gorgeous  wow!,  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 to all their creators). Agatha Peel is the daughter of two celebs: Emma Peel and Hugh Laurie (aka House). Children of celebs in this game often turn out, shall we say, interesting. She's not DDG, but in her own way, her looks are beautiful, but flawed. In RL, those can be the ones who are the most intriguing. She inherited her looks from her dad.  affraid  So did her fiancee, Germain Depardieu, who certainly has his dad's schnozz (He's the son of Gerard Depardieu and Audrey Tautou).  I've really fallen in love  blinkinhearts  with these two pixel babies and have been very happy to follow their romance and now to celebrate their wedding. They fell in love as children and later on when he became a teen, and really got involved in college (see the top of this page).

Now the story continues... "Dad! Don't worry about me! Comb your hair already!...................................................................."My little boy!"  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 503793 "Awww Mom!"
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GerardGroomingGermain_zpsd4ba326cMac's 'Hood - Page 36 AudreyHuggingGermain_zps67a36058

"I'm fine, mom! Mom!"  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 971462 ..................................................................................................................... "Sweetheart, you're beautiful!"  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 508493 "Dad"  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 729422
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 EmmaGroomingAgatha_zpsd0d448aaMac's 'Hood - Page 36 HughKissingAgatha_zpscb0fe237

And so they were married...
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 AgathaGermainWedding_zpsa9b35238

Germain toasts his new bride. I don't know what it is about the Champagne, it always seems to attract wedding crashers. NPCs Danielle Lillard (in the purple dress) and Komei Tellerman (hidden) show up just in time. Good for Agatha! She fed Germain very properly and didn't give him a facefull of cake!

"I thought they'd never leave"
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GermainAgathaAfterWedding_zps88ae23ee

Agatha's made more friends, mac - with 2 bolts and maikkij - with 3!
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 MacAgatha_zps0d9bbee2Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 AgathaMaikki_zpsa467c2a2

Oh yes... Agatha's now pregnant. But we'll have to wait until next season to see their offspring! This just in... It's Dorothea Depardieu! (Of course all babies look alike)

I find that to be true for me. I don't usually find a celebrity to be very interesting until they've got a few years on their face. Pierce Brosnan was bland and boring to me until he got older and had some lines on his face. I think Helen Mirren has possibly been one of the most interesting and gorgeous women at every stage of her acting career.

However, I tend to like my sims to be fairly attractive. They don't have to be perfect, though. I'm not going to kill off a baby just because I don't want its genes passed on (my SIL did this once). Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 515704   She always has an Elvis Presley in her game, but she won't let him breed. Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 598258

Funny you should say that... Gibson and Rona aren't celebs, but they do have a few lines on their faces. They're both by Toni  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 243713 , and I "de-elderated" Gibson to make him an adult. Gibson is Knowedge/Pisces Journalism/Literature and Rona is Family/Pisces RealEstate/Nature. They discovered each other over a quiet dinner.
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GibsonronaDinner_zps3d4aa145

And one thing led to another...
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GibsonRonaCuddling_zps5cbc7c4d

So he "popped the question"  verklempt
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GibsonRonaEngagement_zpsfe9a47ca

And she said "yes"  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 366915
Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 GibsonRonaSheSaidYes_zps04778461

They then had a very decorous evening and night together. Very proper, mind you... After all, they're... it's just possible... they might be...   30!  affraid

One of my peeves about the Sims (all versions) is the age classifications. The "adults" are 20-somethings and the next step is the "elders" who limp and moan and wheeze - right at death's door indeed.   Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 827319  Where are the parents of the kids in university? The 40-50-somethings?

The game is obviously aimed at the teenagers and the (very) young adults. And here we are...  Mac's 'Hood - Page 36 99672
