So this has to be on hold for awhile.  We're in the process of moving and my husband is a genius and packed away the laptop.  Oh well, it'll be back on in less than 2 weeks, hopefully with Showtime added in.

So I sent Menes to France for a day with 10 Deathfish from Riverview in his pocket.  When he got back home, they were gone.  Ugh.

--------------

14.  Hatshepsut - Death to Papparazzi!

We now have two old guys wandering around the house all day.  Gramps still works at the Bistro, of course, but that's only three days a week, and only for four hours at a time.  Pops paints and sculpts almost all day long, in the same room he always did, and Mom still sits at her computer, typing away at her Masterpiece.

Quite a bit has happened, but I've been too busy to write anything down until now.  Where do I start?

Bobo tried to fix the dishwasher one day, I have no idea why, but he ended up getting a shock and set the freaking house on fire!  I was the only one who kept a cool head long enough to put the fire out, before Pops had the sense of mind to call the fire department.  Yeah, a bunch of men jumping around freaking out, and I have to be the one to fix it.

But uh... we all know a woman who looks like this can take care of her family.


Mom finally finished her Masterpiece!  It took her a long, long time, but she feels great now.  It's called "The Quest for Immortality", but, then again, all of her books are about our family, I think.


Of course, a tottering little toddler became a crazy child.



How can I tell he's insane?  He got into a fight with the dresser...  But he's a good looking kid.  He insists on wearing glasses all the time, but I doubt he really needs them.  Oh well, whatever makes him happy!


As soon as he got up the next morning (it was the weekend), he tackled the inventing table Gramps bought and put in the basement.

He likes to invent in his good suit.  Again, my baby is insane, but I still love him.

Pops has been getting a little stir crazy lately, I guess it happens when you work at home.  So when he decided to take a tour of City Hall (bad idea by the way, everyone else passed out on the front step afterwards), he was swarmed by fans.  See Pops?  That's what happens when you hermit yourself away for weeks upon weeks.

[There were a bunch of other people there, just didn't get them in the shot, I thought it was hilarious since he never leaves the house]

As for the title of this entry?  I was starting to meditate.  I'd supermaxed my Athletic ability (when you don't get worn out anymore, what else do you do?), so I figured I'd try what I'd been putting off for a long, long time.  Of course, I try to do it inside (Gramps keeps thinking about putting a giant fence up around the property) because of the Papparazzi constantly hovering around, but sometimes you can't always have it the way you want it.  I can at least Zeniport now!

And yes, I'm just that amazing.

Well anyway, two days in a row, while the dumb Papparazzi hovering around, Grim came to visit.  We thought he was coming for Mom, thank goodness he wasn't!



Pops managed to get his long sought-after portrait of Grim, at least!  He thought it was a nice tribute to Grandma.  She tried getting a portrait of him a few times, but it just never worked out for her.

And immediately afterward, Grim hurried into our museum and stood, staring at Pops' pieces that are there.  I'm fairly certain he knows what's going on, but only he knows what he thinks about it all.


In other news, Bobo has been promoted again and again at work, and so far, loving this outfit of his.


Ramses is doing really well in school!  But the insane little boy insists on running around the house a lot of the time singing (very badly, I might add) "Raaaaaamseeeeeeessssss!  The man in gauze, the man in gauze!"  I have no idea why, and frankly, I'm a little scared to ask.

-------
...cookies to anyone who knows what his singing is from.  Ohyes.

Oh so you got the fish be gone bug when travellingad well? It removed the almost 300 angelfish that the mortals had caught just like that in my dynasty...

Congrats on the supermax though!

Yeah, incredibly annoying considering they're, well, Deathfish.  Oh well, Menes got at least 20 more the next couple days after he got back.  Trying to decide what to do with the Immortals after they're finished is... bothersome...

-----------

15.  Hatshepsut - A Different Kind of Prom

Ramses grew up in the basement by his inventing station.  Should have known he would hide himself down there for this.  It would have at least been nice to watch my little boy grow up, you know?


He says Vesper laughed at him the whole time.  I hope he doesn't try to make her real like I did with Bobo.  I love the man dearly, of course, he's just... I'm not sure.  Sometimes I think I just settled for him sometimes.  It's a good thing he won't read this...

Anyway.  He changed his clothes and went right back to his station, only to scare us to death when we heard an explosion and he ran upstairs to the bathroom with his pants on fire!

It would have been horrible if something had come from that.  Not only because he's my son, but also because of what it would mean for Gramps' future.  To get back at Evil Vesper for cackling madly at him for all of this (he says at least), he spoke a little madness to her.  At least it got her away from him for awhile.


Bobo wanted to bond a little with his son, so he wanted to teach him how to drive.  On Bobo and my birthday.  It's cool, whatever.

My husband decided to have an impromtu birthday party on the side of the road with Ramses.

While I had mine at home.


Pops immediately got to work on my portrait and Ramses'.  It took a couple tries, but he finally made a couple he liked and hung them up downstairs.  Apparently only he and Gramps have access to the museum for now, but I should be able to make it in a few years now.

In yet more Ramses-related news, he invited a girl from school over...

Her name is Christen, and Ramses couldn't help but follow her around like a puppy the whole time.

Of course... good things are always ruined by Grim.


Mom died.  She was 91 and had written three Masterpieces in her lifetime.  What a wonderful mother and wife, I miss her, but Pops misses her even more.  He just... stared at the bed they'd shared their entire married life together, as though he was lost.  He really started throwing himself into sculpting again after this.  Bobo was at the Spa after a particularly rough day at work, and I was at work, training for the next game, it's the only reason why we weren't there for it.

I felt bad for Christen after everyone told me.  She's an amazing girl, even though I've never met her, because she was kind and understanding, and let my crazy, neon-green-loving son cry on her shoulder.

Something must have clicked for him, and with one of his lucid moments, he took the chance to ask her to be his girlfriend.  Who could resist a Pharoah's charm?

Before she left for the night, Christen and Ramses worked on their homework together.  I got home around then, and she was very understanding while Ramses sniffled through their work.  I think I approve.  But make a mom like me angry, and I'll whoop your butt.

Ramses and Christen went to prom together that Friday, and he came back glowing like I'd never seen him before.  He only told me a few things before he went to his room, babbling to himself the entire time.  My son was named prom king almost immediately!  And he and Christen were the stars of the night.  Everyone thought they were amazing together, and they never left each other's side.  Even Bobo was smiling when he came home from chaperoning, and for a grumpy man, that's saying something.  He's put his crown and the picture of him and Christen on a new end table by his bed.


Lastly, Gramps finally upgraded the house like he'd been talking about.  Made Pops' room a little smaller, as well as Bobo and I's, giving Ramses his own nice-sized room to move in to.



Rest in peace mom.  Shari Pharoah, 91 years old.  Professional writer, wife, and mother.  We'll always love you, and we'll always miss you.

16.  Hatshepsut - A Time for Madness

Somehow Ramses got hold of the book and pasted in some conspiracies he's convinced of.  I didn't have the heart to pull them out, since he's going to take this over soon, so... here it is.

So I'm convinced the gnomes know something, they HAVE to!  How else would they move around, sneaking into every little nook and cranny of the house, spying on me and my family?  YES I know about the immortality, might have something to do with everyone else being insane.  But not me, oh no, not me, I'm the only lucid one here, cause I can SEE it.  The gnomes, they move, they multiply, they try to bit the bears, and they just, keep, popping, up!  THEY AGE!  See?  One's a baby, then he grows up.  Then there's another one, and IT'S starting to grow up.  The original ones?  They're carrying canes and have even longer beards now.  Everyone else say it's vestigial magic, but I say there's something a bit more... nefarious about them.  Watch, watch it and see, I'll prove it!










And Grim, oh yes Grim, HE has something to do with it too.  Why else would he take a stray dog in our front yard?  Huh?  HUH?

It took me awhile to figure out how to do Ramses' part of this since he's a bit... nuts.  But I figured it out and hopefully it'll work the way I hope it will.  Let me know what you think!

-----------------

17.  Ramses - Dictated but Not Read

My name is Christen, my maiden name is House.  I was invited into the household by Ramses' Great-Grandfather Menes.  It was a strange thing, but since I was older than Ramses, it seemed like the best thing to do.  I adore that man, he truly is the love of my life, and I can't imagine life without him.  Of course, he's a little crazy, but who isn't?  Of course, my husband talks to himself a lot of the time, and he spends the rest of his time hunched over his inventing table muttering to himself, but he's the most loving man I've ever met.  That is, when he's lucid enough to remember.  He makes up for it though, and I couldn't be happier with my life.

I was called over by Menes, the patriarch of this odd family.  He told me everything about the family, what was going on, and how Ramses truly felt about me.  After all this, when I hadn't run off, he asked me to move in with them, try to keep Ramses on track.


Of course I agreed.  As a thank you, the family let me dip into their funds and get all new clothing for myself, in my favorite color, red.  Ramses' grandfather Tut had a tear in his eyes when he saw me in red, I guess it had been his wife's favorite color as well.  But the family welcomed me with open arms and big smiles.  I won't fill this with pictures, but I have to show off two of my outfits.



His mother asked me what my dream in life was, and I admit, it was a little hard for me to admit to it.  But this is a very close and understanding family, so I finally admitted I wanted to be a magician.  There were a few chuckles, but not at me.  Rather, none of them had considered being a magician and were intrigued by it.  So I signed up and started practicing.  Of course, I wasn't very good at the beginning of it, but I got better the more I worked at it.



Of course, I was just spending time doing things like this, waiting for my love to get out of school.  Finally, the day came.  He celebrated in the living room, I'm not really sure where everyone else had gone to...

Ramses gave himself a bit of a makeover before stealing me away for... something...


He proposed!  After awhile living with this family, it was an honor to be counted among them.  Of course I said yes!


We had a nice little private ceremony right then and there.

And then celebrated the way most new couples do.


Not too long after, I'd just gotten back home from a gig at one of the parks...

Hopped in the shower, and finally figured out why I'd been so sick!

I was pregnant!

It didn't seem to last too long, because before I knew it, the pangs hit me while sitting at the computer.

It didn't seem to take long before our son was here!

Ramses had been inventing and working on fixing anything that had broken, but he was so thrilled with our son, he gave me a giant hug and kiss before asking me to name the little one.  It had been a tradition, and so I named him Ahkenaten.

Welcome, Ahkenaten!

Just keep trying!

---------

18.  Ramses - Me, Myself, and I.  Kind of.

HA!  They tell me I'm okay enough today to do this myself.  I love my wife, but I want to write in this thing.  Grew up watching the others do it, it's totally my turn now!  I've been inventing things ever since I was a kid, and I finally got the skill to build a miner!  Set it up outside and Great-Grandpa Menes loves the thing.  He's crazier than I am sometimes, he does it when we're all asleep.  Least I'm considerate...


Aten's growing up fast, but I had to prove I could build things.  Science center called me, they had the same idea!  Menes had been collecting a few things over the years, so I dug through the chest and found what I needed.  Palladium and pink diamonds, I had the scrap, and he let me take a few of the Life Fruit he'd been growning.  Took them all in, they helped me draw up the plans, and...
PRESTO!

My son, Stacey Pharoah, LIVES!  Sadly, we couldn't keep him in the house, so he left and started up his own life.  Somhow... he's a tattoo artist.  Don't wanna know how that's working out.

Shortly after that, Aten grew up!  He's a strange little man, doesn't like being outside, but he's sharp as a tack.  Like me?  Or not like me...?  Can't remember.  Anyway!

Cute right?  He even got one of those dolls Dad used to be, and... Vesper.  Dunno if I should let him keep it, but there's no harm now.  We'll see how it goes when he gets older.  Right now, he's happy to have a friend to sing to.

Everyone wants to teach him thing.  Menes taught him how to potty,

...and how to talk, along with Christen...


...and Dad showed him how to walk.

But!  Somehow, Aten taught himself how to read.  No idea how it happened, but I told you he's smart!


Mom and Dad got old on the same night.


Now I get to laugh at them, MWAHA!  Grandpa Tut painted Mom's portrait, and the three of them all settled down for a helping of Ambrosia.

Not bad, eh?

After the celebration, I got around and made another SimBot!  This time it's a girl named Bree Pharoah.  Yet again, Christen and I can't be the parents to her like we wanted to be, and she set off to make a name for herself in the world.

Grandpa spent some time with Aten as well.


AND FURTHER PROOF that the Gnomes are conspiring against us, one of them DIED!  See the tombstone?  I'm afraid to touch it...

I've been putting this off for awhile.  With a full house, it's hard to keep this going at a good pace anymore.

-------------------

19.  Ramses - Children of.... Something!

AHAHAHAHAH!  Christen was going to write, but I stole the book.  It's mine, MINE I SAY!

Ahem.

I built another SimBot, another girl I named Danita.  Really wish we could have at least kept one of them, you don't see the Immortals running around giving their kids up...  Yeah, they can have what they want, but I can't.  Meh.

Got my lifetime wish of Monster Maker though!  Really, who thinks they're monsters?  They're my sweet little children.  Yuss.

Christen wanted a birthday party for Aten, so all of us in the house gathered around while she helped him blow out the candles.  I just wanted the blow the thing up...


Not bad looking eh?  He's crazy though, actually wants to know the WHY behind everything.  Sat down at the chess table and started playing as soon as he'd changed clothes.  Crazy kid...


So those things Dad is, and... Vesper, guess Aten was telling the truth after all.  He found a potion Grandma had made in the back of the fridge.  Next thing we all know, there's a little girl running downstairs to introduce herself to us.  Could have at least asked us about it first...  Wanted to name her something other than Jessa.  Meh.



Not a bad looking kid though, might make up for none of my mechanical kids getting to stay with us.

SPEAKING OF!  I found Danita singing in the park one day.  I KNEW that voice box would come in handy!


Ohyes, supermaxxed Handiness, because I am the awesome you all wish you were made of.

There may or may not be an update for this soon.  I sent Menes, Ramses, and Aten to China.  It glitched the first two times, so I'm hoping third time's the charm.  Cross your fingers!

Fingers crossed for China! I know what you mean about a full house, it gets easier though when more of them are immortal and can be left alone more.

20.  Ramses - Voice of Reason

I managed to find where Ramses hid the book.  He's becoming a bit more unstable the older our son becomes, so we all agreed I should document things for awhile once again.

Ramses has been working on his inventions as much as he can, he still has a few more promotions to go, but since he sells them at the consignment shop, he gets more money than he usually would for them.  He's a charming man, if you can get around the insanity like we all can.  In order to pass the time, the immortals have been doing different things around the house.  Tut continues to sculpt and paint, Hati watches tv quite often (she says she has a few years to catch up on) or breaks space rocks in the backyard for gems, and Menes likes to dig tunnels with the miner Ramses built for him.


Bobo and Jessa, being former imaginary friends, like to sit and talk to each other a lot, comparing experiences considering Jessa was made real much sooner than Bobo had been.

He still works in the school district, and he's doing pretty well for being in his 90's.

Even though Ramses is as skilled as anyone could be with handiness, it took this long for someone to call him to see if he could upgrade a radio for them.

This marked the last official one he needed in order to each his ambrosia when he gets older.  Some of these trends are making much more sense than they used to, you wouldn't want someone inexperienced to live forever, would you?

Aten and Jessa grew up to be teens on the same day.  Both Ramses and I agree they aged very well.  We couldn't be prouder of them.


Jessa's just like me with her love of red.  It seems to be the most popular color with the women who marry into the family.

That night, Menes surprised us all by taking himself, Ramses, and Aten on a nice, long trip to China.  Of course, being men, they didn't take many pictures, but it was good to hear from them every once in awhile.  Menes finally bought the family a vacation home in the forbidden city and upgraded it a little.  He set up a little garden outside, bought new beds for all three bedrooms, and bought Ramses an inventing table, as well as a chemistry table, telescope, and new chess table for Aten.  After all this, he just seemed to run around the countryside fishing.  He likes it, so I don't blame him.  Ramses just worked on building all the machinery he could so he could sell them when they got home.  Once he did so, he made a couple of sales worth more than $30,000 each!  Aten worked on his logic abilities, as well as his wish to be a Chess Legend.  Imagine my surprise when he came home with it finished!  He's very pleased with himself.  He also discovered all the potions he could with the chemistry set, tutored all of his chess opponents until he was more effective, and got a head start on finding new stars.  It went rather well, from what I can tell!


Ramses aged up to adult the night they came back.  He'd attached himself to his inventing table as soon as he came home, of course, and grew up in front of it.


Still handsome as ever, isn't he?

Menes decided he wanted to see what it would be like to train a horse.  I'm not sure why, but they have the money to do it with.  He adopted a little foal named Baby.


Who didn't stay a baby for more than a day.

Menes then decided to sell her at the equestrian center so someone else would be able to spend the time with her she deserved.  It got him to thinking, maybe one of the generations would want to do this at some point?

I'm not sure if I'm proud of Bree.  She became a papparazzi...


Aten and Jessa went to prom together!  They had a wonderful time, but came back to a house of sorrow.  Not long after they left for their dance, Grim came for Bobo.  At 91, he lived a nice, full life.  We will all miss him terribly.


Aten threw himself into stargazing, quickly finding more and more stars, planets, and comets.

He hates being outside, so we put a couple huge windows in his room.  I threw myself into my job as a magician and quickly rose in the ranks.  I'm almost to the top of my career!


Jessa... it seemed to hit her the worst, being a former imaginary friend herself.  She would just sit there playing chess by herself or with the butler Menes hired for the house.  None of us really knew what to do with her, so we left her alone as she grieved, finally coming out of it and practicing at the chemistry table again.

Ramses was promoted to the top of his career!  The last sale of a Masterful Time Machine put him over the edge, and now all he has to do is wait for his Elder portrait to be painted and he'll be immortal.  I like to think of my end coming, it puts everything I do into a new perspective.  I have the utmost respect for this family, but how can they face eternity like this?  It seems like Ramses has been thinking the same thing, and has been taking trips in the time machine he saved for the family.  He likes going back in time, and came back with a sculpture at one point.  It sits in the basement until we can figure out where else to put it.


It seems like Aten's take over of the book is right around the corner.  He and Jessa only have a week left of school, and already he's been talking to me about proposing to her.  She's a little hot-headed, but we all know how to deal with her now.  She'd be a wonderful daughter-in-law, but it's just hard to think of my little boy getting married soon.

So.  While I was just playing, I was having Ramses run around in his time machine.

He went to the past.

When he came back, he brought a daughter.

So now we have Tori Pharoah taking up the empty slot that happened after Bobo died.  Either this means the end of the dynasty, OR I'm going to have to be very, very careful with how I play for awhile now.

Grrr...

Ask Metro though to be sure, but I believe it is not an ambrosia requirement to have a child so you can just wait until there is enough space in the house since your heir is male. Although I believe it is time to sell that naughty time machine to prevent it from giving you more children.

*nodnod*  I think that's how it is too, but I'll message him to make sure.  I feel a little ghoulish for saying so, but I think Christen will die just before Aten and Jessa turn Adult, so I think I'll be okay...  But I've learned my lesson.  I'm just sending him to the future now, especially since he kept messing up Hati's job.

Ramses - And Then There Two

I'm the only one who can explain it, everyone else remembers things as they are now, not how they used to be, before I went mucking around in the past.  Well, first I should tell you since I reached the top of my career, I was given the key to the city by the mayor.

But I had other things on my mind.  You see, I'd been playing with the time machine I'd kept for the family.  ...if you couldn't tell, I forced myself lucid in order to write this so others can understand.

I went to the past.  An arguement broke out about children, and when I came back, I found I had a daughter, Tori.  How was this possible?  Everyone else remembered her for her whole life, I was the only one who did it.  Had I ruined my family's chance at saving my great-grandfather?  If so, I can only beg forgiveness right now.  But she's still my daughter, and just because I don't remember much about her, it doesn't mean I love her any less.

Now we have three genius children in the house.  Aten, Jessa, and Tori are all geniuses, and I'm proud of all of them.  Tori is also a bit musically inclined, so we bought her a guitar and a piano she can use when she gets a little older.


Aside from that, life has gone on pretty much the same as usual.  Christen has finally become a Master Magician, and has two Simmy awards to prove how amazing she is!

I guess I can forgive her for almost drowning in that box of hers...

I have two more mechanical sons!  Brian and Feisal were introduced into the world, and have both gone into town to try and make names for themselves again.  Guess I technically have... seven kids now?  Wow...



Aten tutors Tori whenever he gets the chance to, and she was on the honor roll in school before we even knew what was happening.

He's a good brother, but at least he believes me when I told him what happened with the time machine.  He might not like me running around in it, but at least it's fun!  Besides, I've brought back some cool clothes, even if they don't like it when I run around in them a lot.




Aten and Jessa finally grew up again, which means it's his turn now...  But!  I leave you with flirting paparazzi!

[No joke, whenever they were at the house at the same time, flowers, flirting, the works.  It amused me.]

Ahkenaten - A Fresh Start

Mom managed to wrestle this away from Dad in his... strange behavior and explained things to me.  Of course, I already knew about it, but it made her feel good to explain it, so I wasn't going to take that away from her.  I'm smarter than them, but it doesn't mean I have to be a snob about it.  This immortality thing, it's intriguing, but I don't know how the others have managed with all the death and loss in the family so far.  It's something we have to be strong for, it's the only way we can make it.  Of course I love my Great-Great-Grandfather, we're a very close family, and if we can help him, then it's our duty to, isn't it?  I can't help but feeling we've sacrificed what we really could be, had we not had all of this hanging over our heads.  Maybe Dad's trips into the past will change things at some point, for the better this time.

Jessa and I became Young Adults, it seemed to take forever to get to this point.


I took her upstairs to the room we'd shared ever since I made her real, and proposed.


Of course she said yes, and we had our wedding right then and there!  No time like the present, and there's less of a chance of Dad messing it up with that machine of his...  We celebrated the only way we saw fit, as well.  We can't have any children yet, but it doesn't mean we can't have fun, does it?


The next day, my little sister, Tori, grew up.  Now we have a teenager in the house again.

She immediately started playing her piano, only stopping to practice on her guitar.


She wants to be a Hit Movie Composer, so all of us encourage her as much as we can.

Jessa and I both joined the medical career as Organ Donors.  Anyone else a little... worried... about our uniforms?


Even though we're both on our way to become doctors, my wife and I still wonder how much longer we'll have to wait to have a child of our own.  We feel like ghouls, because now... well... we have to wait for Mom to die.  I wish she would be able to see her grandchild, but I know better than to expect it to happen...  She's an elder now though, so we sit and wait, and even she's looking forward to seeing Grim again now.

23.  Ahkenaten - A New Immortal

I just need to put in a quick update before I or someone else forgets.  Grandpa Tut finished Dad's Elder portrait, and the four oldest members of the family sat down for Ambrosia.

Four Immortals, me, and three more generations to be born.  Will we be able to make it?

Jessa and I keep getting promotions, we're both Residents now!  Tori's been on the honor roll, and has been playing guitar and piano whenever she gets the chance.

Dad made another SimBot, a girl this time, Morgan.


He also demanded I put in a picture of him in his formal attire, walking with his cane.  I'm not sure why he wants (or needs) one, but we've learned to put up with his insanity by now.


My Dad, Ramses Pharoah, is immortal.  Look out world, you have no idea what you're in for...

Four actually, but thank you!

24.  Ahkenaten - New Arrivals

A lot's been happening lately, so now's the time for a decent update.

Tori's a Young Adult now, and after she changed her hair and clothes, she ran off to the theater to get a job in music.  She already loves it.




She knows she won't be able to have any children, there's just no room, so Tori adopted a little puppy she named Silver.  Recently, she's discovered her love for dogs, so at least we know little Silver will get plenty of attention.



Silver didn't stay little for too long though, and now we have a huge, grey dog running through the house.  She likes howling along with the piano when Tori plays, so at least they have fun together whenever she's playing.



The night before both Jessa and I's birthday, tragedy struck.  Of course, I would be lying if I said we hadn't been waiting for this day, but it didn't make it any easier.  Mom died, at age 90.  She lived a good long life, reached the goals she set for herself, and while she didn't live long enough to see her grandchild, we all know she was happy.  It was almost as though she sacrificed herself for the family, though she didn't expedite it in any way.



Struck with grief, Jessa and I found solace in each other.

We wouldn't be honoring Mom's memory if we didn't at least try to have a child, would we?

We have both been advancing very quickly at the hospital, and I managed to be named World-Renowned Surgeon the night of my birthday.  Jessa had hers at home, while I had mine right after work.



The next day, Jessa reached the same level as I was, fulfilling her life's wish!  We seemed to breeze through our wishes, and everyone's proud of us.  Even better than that, we found out Jessa's pregnant!  Through the grief of Mom dying, hope springs through.  We both really want a boy, and we should be able to find out soon enough.


Rest in piece, Christen (House) Pharoah.  Magician, wife, mother.  Ever the patient one, for putting up with Dad.

Great update just so you know it is possible for a pregnant Sim to do a strength workout using the exercise equipment while pregnant.

25.  Ahkenaten - Birthdays and Birth

A lot more things have happened at a pretty steady pace, so let's see if I can get this caught up.  I almost wish Dad was still doing it, it's hard to remember to write in this when I'm being called back to the hospital at all hours of the night.

Jessa started showing her pregnancy, and even though they wouldn't let me be her doctor, I could still figure out what we were having.  A boy!

And even though we'd both been through all the classes and everything, it was still panic time when she went into labor.  There's no real practicing for the real thing, is there?


But Jessa's a trooper and brought Seti Pharoah into the world, and yes, she named him herself.  It's a tradition, and I won't go against it.

Everyone's giving us a hand in raising him, especially since Jessa and I have odd hours at the hospital.  Dad really loves spending time with his grandson, and we all think it's evening him out a little bit.



Or... you know... not.


I'm just happy all the Immortals remembered when his birthday was supposed to be.  Like I've said, it's hard for Jessa and I to be on top of things because of work.  It's exhausting.  They threw him a birthday party!


Cute kid, right?  Though I think he spent a little too much time with Tut, his favorite color's hot pink...  But at least he likes black with it.


Jessa and I are both grateful for all the help the Immortals are giving us, but we really wanted to be the ones to teach him his skills.  And so we did!




I... I think I'm hooked.


Tori has been slowly climbing the ranks of her musical career, and was finally offered a job in the orchestra.  She loves her outfit, and in honor of two of my favorite ladies, I figured I should show them off a little.  First is Tori in her quartet outfit.

Then it's Jessa in her formal wear.  She loves red, like a lot of the Pharoah women, but would rather wear the darker end of it than the brighter.


So far, Seti's having a pretty laid-back toddler and childhood.  He's taken an interest in the Nectar-maker Menes brought back from France, but we won't let him near it until he's at least a teenager.  So yeah, my son's had the most laid-back childhood of any of us so far.

He hates school though.  He'd rather be outside harvesting grapes with Menes.  Don't know where he got that from...

Tori's a full adult now, and having a bit of a midlife crisis.  She knows she has to die, so we're letting her spoil herself.  Of course, we can't let her move, but she admitted it was a passing fancy of hers.  Honestly, none of us know what we'd do away from the family, we've all been together so long, it's hard to imagine.  But she got a few new outfits, a new hairdo, and we let her buy herself the most expensive car she could find.  I believe Dad when he says she was an accidental daughter, and we all feel bad about it, so we spoil her when we can.

But she's still as lovely as always.

Her dog, Silver, has mastered hunting and keeps bringing back interesting things she finds.  Like this Diamond Dog.

And somehow, she made it all the way over to the science center and brought back a puppy who looks too much like her to be a natural puppy.  We'll see how Topaz grows up though.


I've been tutoring all the kids I can find, and Seti's on the honor roll because of my help as well.  That's all I needed to finish up Logic.  Now all I need is to become an Elder, have Tut paint my portrait, and I'll join the ranks of the Immortals as well.  I'm a little nervous about it, but that shouldn't be a surprise, I'd think.

26.  Seti - Inheritance

So... immortality, living forever, the whole nine yards, yada yada.  Not bad, I think I can handle it.  Not like it matters too terribly much with me anyway, we can only ever have eight on the property, so it's not like I'll be like Grandpa Menes and see everyone die.  Just a few people.  I can handle it.  'sides, it should be fun, living forever, and I'll have plenty of time aging my nectar before drinking it now.  No one can tell me it won't be amazing.

...right, anyway, updates and all that.

A couple days before I turned into a teenager, a paparazzi died...

...Grandpa made another SimBot (I swear they're taking over the town...) named Wendell...

...and Mom found a dusty old lamp with a genie in it.


Seems like most people would be shellshocked with all of that, but I've grown up with this kind of thing.  Seeing it all happen doesn't get a rise out of me anymore, I don't think it ever really did.  Just one of those things that happens, you know?

Then I grew into a teenager.

Yes, I shaved my head, I don't want any hair in my nectar, and yes, I'm a vegetarian.  Have a problem with it?  Shut up.

And then, while Dad was teaching me how to drive, both he and Mom decided it was a great time to turn old.


Honestly?  I think Mom looks better with white hair, and she agrees.  First person in this family to not get hit with a bit of vanity when she grew older.  Dad just wanted things to stay the same.  He... has problems with change, I think.

Grandpa Tut painted Dad's final portrait, and the old ones all sat down for some Ambrosia.  My dad makes the fifth one, and I suppose I'll be the sixth, if I can make it.  But hey, if Grandpa can, then I can, s'all I have to say about it.

Mom and Aunt Tori sat watching tv in the living room, and I was downstairs making nectar, of course.  They seemed a little sad, I guess, but they know they're going to die.  Sad, but true.  Yet another thing I've grown up with.


Yes, yes I do press nectar in my speedo.


Oh yeah, Tori's a Hit Movie Composer now, had to add that in for... posterity... or something, and all the old folks decided to add another couch to the living room.  Guess they were tired of having to stand to watch tv sometimes.


So... yeah... high school... yay...

Whatever.
