Matthew Hamilton just completed his first novel. He pretty much ignored his wife's entire existence to finish it, but he seems fine with that.

It's called: The Way Up - Vol. 1

The back cover blurb reads:

First time author, Matthew Hamilton, chronicles his journal through the sometimes nasty and cut-throat ranks of the political world. Hamilton started out as a File Clerk in the Sim City Municipal Offices. Due to his uncanny skill for filing, Hamilton was quickly promoted to Intern. The journey can only be described as a how-to in "getting a leg up."

"I was riveted from the first line. Hamilton makes filing as exciting as llama racing!" - Sandy Machado of the Sim City Chronicle

There is fate. But it only takes you so far, because once you're there, it's up to you to make it happen. - Angel Stripper "Can't Hardly Wait"

Woops. I replayed a few houses in my neighbourhood by accident (I thought it was a bit weird that I was already back to the Martin/Goodie/Burb families) and now I've messed up my rotation a little. Not to worry, I just won't play those households next time.

Anyway, aside from replaying.
Mercutio Monty caught his wife, Miranda having an affair with her old college professor! Sometimes, my sims work things out... other times... they don't. Mercutio broke up with her on the spot, and she moved out leaving her twins behind. She's currently searching for a last name since she's no longer allowed to be a Monty, and can't return to "Capp" because... well... she married the Monty heir so she's not exactly on speaking terms with the rest of the family.

Speaking of break-ups, since Sandra Broke (Roth) cottoned on to Rick and Angela (Pleasant) Contrary holding their daughter (/Rick's step-daughter) and grandson (/Rick's son.... yep....) hostage in a hidden secret room for the majority of their life, the household has of course broken down. Rick and Angela divorced and Rick skipped town straight after. Angela hates him, and plans on moving elsewhere and changing her and their daughter's names. The daughter (Bea) who was locked away ended up moving in with Sandra, who just happened to be married to Bea's biological father, Dustin. It didn't take long for him to realise his adopted teen daughter is actually his real daughter, as they look almost identical. Plus, after Dustin and Sandra struggled for years with unexplained infertility, Sandra has finally become pregnant.
Sounds great, right?... well... sadly not. This rotation, a fire broke out from a train-set, killing townie Ivy Copur (adult) and despite Sandra trying to save her, there was no use. Ivy is officially the first sim to die in my game without having any children. I'm thinking of resurrecting her at a later time, but for now her grave is outside the house.

Lately, my sims have all been stupid. What is it about sims women that makes them forget how to eat when they are hungry? Mary Aires, who seemed to be a perfectly normal girl, was assigned Evan Tinker as a spouse because she won the baby lottery. They weren't all that thrilled with each other (making the retching sounds when you see your spouse is probably not the indicator of a healthy marriage). But he wanted another child now that his daughter, Christmas, is a teenager and on her own. So...evening falls and Mary's a bit peckish. She goes to the bathroom. She takes a shower. She sits down to read. She dies. WTF? The kitchen is RIGHT THERE!

@smorbie1 I think she rather die than spend another waking moment with him. I mean, he wants another baby. She has to put up with that =))

LOL! The baby was a forgone conclusion, ordered by the Council. It was conceived via artificial insemination (insim), so she didn't have to worry about getting physical with him.

@Bigsimsfan12

Miranda's dad's last name before he married into the Capp matriarchy was Norman. Miranda gets to double thumb her nose at her mother's family. I could definitely see her doing that.

Ah! Brilliant! I wish I had seen this post earlier. I just googled Shakespeare names and she ended up with the last name Burgandy. Now I might change it to Norman. She never got on with her mother, but is still in touch with her father even after marrying a Monty. It would've made sense!

The Cullen family had literally just birthed their Council-ordered triplets when the last rotation ended. When I checked in this time, Kaylynn (who looks quite different post nuclear incident) was still standing there holding one. Naturally, my entrance coincided with the Council's arrival to notify them of another baby lottery win. The couple experienced mixed emotions. Shawn was tickled because he wasn't the one who just gave birth. Kaylynn would have been more open to the idea if their children were more than a minute old. Nevertheless, one does as the Council demands, and they both did want big families.

However, this left them with 0 money to pay their taxes. Since this was the first tax problem they had, the Council just sent them a room mate. Another failure will, of course, mean exile to the prison subhood, Nowhere.

Here's the deal. They sent Danielle Lillard. I really don't like her. It's the combination of the dreads and the frog lips. I wish they had a surgery center, so I could fix her mouth. But, she's definitely going to the hair salon at Gussy Up's ASAP.

Another problem is that the house is small. There's a bed upstairs, but Kaylynn and Shawn haven't really hit it off, and she's been sleeping on the couch. Not a lot of room for for a lounge chair. I'd hate for Froggy to have to sleep standing up. Or would I?

I rebuilt 2 houses in pleasantview today 50 Middle Lane to 23.523 (fully furnished) and 30 Lakeside Drive to 26.026 (also fully furnished)
I feel happy with the outcome of modern country side houses.

I like those. The one on the right looks like a happy, little house. I have no talent for rebuilding. You know they have had a contest on here for rebuilders. You might want to check out those threads.

First Rick Contrary and now Lilith Pleasant...I've never had even one teen run away before in all the years I've been playing, and now it seems to be becoming the fashion in Greater Pleasantview! The difference in the parents' reactions took me totally by surprise: Edward and Opal didn't seem all that bothered, although I had Edward ring the police eventually because he rolled some wants for positive interactions with his son; Mary-Sue went running after Lilith, bawling her eyes out, and has barely stopped crying since - she even got up at 3 am and started crying again, and Angela was the same (Daniel is still in prison, hence no reaction from him). Seeing this, I of course had Mary-Sue call the police at once, but 22 hours later there's still no sign of Lilith. Silly girl; she only had 26 hours from when she ran away until she could legally have left home or gone to university anyway. Edward Contrary came round while Mary-Sue was on the phone, almost as if he wanted to form a support group, and Dirk Dreamer came looking for Lilith the next morning, hanging around the house for several hours without even ringing the doorbell, as if waiting for the police to show up with her.

Meanwhile, I've had two "long-lost" Sims come home. Joseph Grimmson decided to move back in with his mother, since his identity was revealed at General Buzz's murder trial, but is now wondering if there's actually room for him, as Olive already has Buck Vandermorgan (Grunt) and is considering using her magic cat to bring in Rick and Lilith. But at least Rupert (Ripp) has left for college now - even though Buzz was given a dishonourable discharge and stripped of rank, the Powers that Be decided the boys should still be eligible for the Military Generations College Tuition Bursary, which covers their fees for two years at college.

Bella Goth is the other one who's come home, to Mortimer's great delight. She was there for Alexander's birthday, and has persuaded Cassandra to put off that black dress and wear something more cheerful. The only slight hitch was that she came back younger than Cassandra, so I've had to use "set to birthday" and she'll age up on the next rotation. I kind of hate doing that to her, but she really can't be younger than her own daughter!

That's what the contest was, to take the shells and make something better inside.

Boo, I noticed today no less than two lots were missing from each sub hood inexplicably, some were community lots, some were owned businesses and a few were occupied family homes *corruption from years ago is catching up with me? Probably*. Well I restored hood from the back up I made two weeks ago and everything is there so...shrug for now, don't know if I did something to cause it or it just decided to bork up the last week or so.

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

Yay, love it when they're happy.

Alexa has not been happy. She had a pretty hard rotation. She had been happily jumping from man to man. She was waiting for a rich one to wander by when her country was invaded by Elsewhere. Okay, that meant she had to get a job. She could deal with that. She was a sports agent; it gave her access to a lot of wealthy men. She felt invincible, thought she could slide under the radar.

Then she won the baby lottery. Crap. That meant a spouse would be provided for her.

She crowed with delight when she was introduced to First Maccabees Smith. Her's an old man, she thought. I'll just be inseminated, pop this kid out, and leave it with him.

He began spending money like it was going out of style. Uh oh. She was worried she wouldn't have enough money to pay their taxes. Also, she didn't like being pregnant.

They missed tax season and Alaska Janackova was plucked from her children to live with them. Alexa ignored her just as she ignored First Maccabees.

Unfortunately, she lost the baby. She didn't care. She was still healthy, so she was inseminated again. She lost that baby as well. She's still okay, but is kind of hoping the Council will forget about the baby.

They wont', but she doesn't know that. She thinks she's home free. Now, she thinks how can I rid myself of the old man and the whiner?

The minute I moved Flamenco and Nighat in, ACR kicked in and they ACR tried for baby. I heard baby chimes and checked the ACR pregnancy scanner. The pregnancy scanner showed one baby, so I used the Sim manipulator to make the pregnancy twins. Flamenco and Nighat both got jobs, and both rolled the want to go on vacation. They had an ok vacation on Twikki Island.

Not much happened during Nighat's pregnancy. Flamenco and Nighat skilled for their jobs, and I filled various wants for Benazir and Tariq. Benazir and Tariq are 3 days away from becoming elders, and since both are permaplat I imagine they will have quite a few days once they become elders.

I saved right as Nighat went into labor, which was a good thing because this time the game decided not to cooperate right away. It kept giving me twin boys, or boy/girl twins. It took many, many tries before the dang thing finally gave me girl/girl twins. These are the time when I wish there was a Sims 2 version of Master Controller that could force baby gender. Dina and Nina were finally born, although born in game Dina is not going to look like she does in Pleasanview out of the box. In this version of Pleasantview, she will have blonde hair and alien eyes. Looking at Nina's DNA in SimPE it looks like she will have red hair and green eyes.

Yeah, I know I wouldn't have the patience to play the beginning neighborhoods the way they are meant to be played, though I really admire you for doing so. I think I'll just ignore the rules like I do with all the Eaxis premades.

"Well, isn't this just GREAT!", thought Jeff sarcastically, as he looked around at the green sky of his new home. Because of that stupid woman he is now in the prison hood for life. "I'm the head of all the businesses in the whole darn country, and I'm in prison, without, literally, a pot to pee in, and I'm still pregnant".

It all started with the baby lottery. Jeff didn't want a baby, but he thought it might be interesting. Depended upon whom his partner was going to be. Imagine his joy when the Council representative dropped off elder Tiffany Zarubin. Of course, this meant Jeff was the one being inseminated, and he was going to have to have the baby. Naturally, he hated Tiffany. He stalked off without a word and never exchanged so much as a grunt with her. Tiffany, on the other hand, had a yowza! moment when she met him. He is kind of cute.

She waited until she heard the door slam the next morning, and then she hotfooted it to the secret genie hiding area. She wasn't caught and was successful in her request to be made a witch. She then turned back the clock and became a young adult, thinking she might win Jeff's heart. She was kind of excited about her new status so she played with the cauldron awhile, and then tried a spell. The Council caught her. They exterminated her and exiled her husband to the prison hood. He wasn't even there when it happened, but the Council enforces its rules.
