Well, the nanny married Maxwell Sheffield, so why can't she marry the butler?  ;D

Chapter 36:  Week 10, Monday Afternoon - Evening
The doctors leave, still debating what sort of treatment to prescribe for Pippa.  Meantime, Gregory and Gordon have returned from school.  Both have their third straight day on the honour roll and both have maximized the Logic skill.  Birthday time!  First, Gregory:



He runs over to the Consignment store to pick out new clothes and a new hairdo.  After checking out various possibilities, he decides to keep the clothes the game gave him, along with a new pair of boots and a hairdo that he thinks makes him look like the musical genius he hopes to become.



He heads over to the Theatre to apply for work.  His goal is to become a hit music composer.  He figures he looks the part, and he's got good guitar and logic skills, so look out Sunset Valley, here he comes!  Roll over Beethoven, move over Mozart.  Vivaldi shall be vanquished by Vandersim!  (sorry, I got carried away)



While Gregory applies for work, Gordon has his birthday celebration:



And his new look is -



Alright, I admit it - I've been missing my kilted lads!  I still wish they'd give us knee socks and a proper 8-yard kilt instead of this little mini-skirt-looking garment, but it's all we've got at present.  The plaid is one of Gheez' tartans.  And our Gordie is a bonnie laddie, wouldn't you say?  He hurries home and makes a phone call to Tami Landgraab.

"Tami, now that we're both grown up ...



Will you marry me?  I promise to let you wear the pants in the household."



As Gordon and Tami have a private wedding, Pippa sits alone watching her favourite television program.



And now we have 8 in the household.  Someone has to move out before the newlyweds can try for baby, and for Gregory to have a chance to get married.  Aw, I hate seeing them all leave home.  I'll leave that for next time.  Think about it tomorrow, Scarlett.

Happy Birthday boys! Both of their looks are very ... what's the word ... distinctive? Yeah, I'll go with that. Congrats on the wedding, Gordon.

That's a nice neutral word.  I'm sure the boys appreciate your tact.

Yes, happy birthday.  I would say, distinguished, which is about the same.  The boys will go far.  I hope when you end the story of the twins, maybe keep us updated on what the kids are doing.  Of course, possibilities are endless in these stories. :)

Well, if you're poor your "freaky", but if your mom has people doing the spin for her, then you're "eccentric" ;D

I love Gregory and Gordon's looks, but then again, I'm a wee bit odd myself :D

I was staring at Gregory's hair for like a minute, because I thought it was feathers, but then I realized "Oh, it's dreads!"  which of course made more sense LOL

Is there any chance of romance for Sebastian. I know who would be the perfect women for him but I am not going to put who in this thread just in case I spoil something.

Now you've really piqued my curiosity, Rachel.  I am longing to know who you would consider Sebastian's perfect mate.  Anyone but Vita Alto - that woman just scares me.  Please feel free to share the name, either here or in a PM if you prefer.  Only share it if you want to and if you don't mind me stealing the idea!   ;)

Sebastian's perfect woman is Agnes. They share the same unique(lack of)fashion sense.After all Sebastian chose to wear that shirt with those pants so he knows a woman with taste when he sees one.
 They are both of the same social standing so they will know which fork to use with the fish course and whatnot.
Poor Agnes has been lonely since her husbands death and would appreciate the kindly attentions of a young philanthropist. Agnes is slightly older then Sebastian(I am assuming) and I believe that he would appreciate the charms of an older woman.

That's interesting.  It had never occurred to me to put those two together!  But I can certainly understand your reasoning.  Of course, Sebastian and Pippa are both completely lacking in romantic experience.  But I have noticed that whenever Sebastian meets a new male sim, that's when he starts wanting to know the other one's sign and if he does learn the sign, the kissing wishes start popping up.  He seems to have his own idea about who's right for him.

Let's see.  The short list of possible mates for Sebastian now includes Agnes, Mr Payne, and Gunther Goth.  I'll run those names past him, but please don't be too surprised if he turns down all these helpful suggestions.   ;)

Are you asking me?  I never said that!  The forum matchmakers seem to like the idea, but me, I just play the game and record events as they happen.  And I haven't noticed either of the twins hooking up with anyone.  Maybe they'll both be old maids (or whatever the male equivalent is).

I hope I didn't sound critical with the matchmaker comment, I really didn't mean to.  I do appreciate the interest in Pippa and Sebastian's (presently nonexistent) love life.  The good thing is, we don't have too long to wait to find out.  They're halfway through their last week.  Just a few more days to see how it all turns out.

Chapter 37:  Week 10, Tuesday

Sadly, the game won't allow us to have more than 8 sims in the household, so the only way for Gregory to get married and for Gordon and his bride to have a baby is for someone to move out.  So we bid a reluctant farewell to Marilyn, Christopher and Baby Andrew.  Their new house: 



Now Gregory can get married!  He calls his sweetheart over and eagerly pops the question.  "Sandi, I'm going to be a famous composer.  Stick with me, baby, we're on our way to the top."



Sandi's expression is pure delight.  Look how thrilled she is.  Then she turns him down.



When she refused him, Gregory found out for the first time that Sandi is insane.  Well, she'd have to be, wouldn't she?  I mean, who could resist a guy with such a unique sense of style?  What was lilygirl's word for it - distinctive, that's it.  Gregory is heartbroken.  He cries on Sandi's shoulder.  "But, Sandi, I spent a fortune on that ring!"



But he cheers up when he sees his new house.



Gregory resolves to devote himself to his art.  He'll become a famous composer, and Sandy will be sorry she turned him down. 

Between you and me, I'm actually a bit relieved that Sandi said no.  With Gregory's Evil trait and Sandi's insanity, would you really want to entrust defenceless nooboos to their care?

So now we are down to four in the house:  Sebastian and Pippa, Gordon and his wife Tami.  After all the children we've had over the last 9 1/2 weeks, the place feels - well, kind of sad and empty.  Gordon has gone to work at the Military Base, Tami is pursuing her dream of working in Law Enforcement.  Friday morning is the appointment at the lawyer's office.  Then Pippa and Sebastian will learn if they will be able to move back to Vandersim Mansion.  Unless something very unexpected happens in the next couple of days, the next chapter of our story will deal with the appointment with Mr Payne.  I'm afraid that's going to be rather a long post.  I'll try not to be too long-winded
