How many updates did you write today? Whatever you had for breakfast... I want some of it!  :o

I'm really taken in by Agnes Cecilia. I love her frankness. On the one hand, she is rebellious. On the other, she fears disapproval.
So nice, that both Klara and Selma agree that this little one writes really well. Especially, because there is such a strong mother/daughter theme running through this story.
Oooh, naughty Sylvester, to keep such exciting news to himself!!!
Aw! VJ's passing affected me more than I thought. I've always given him a wide berth in game play. But your story has totally changed my view of him.
Excellent work, saltpastillen, and very much appreciated! :)

Thanks for your kind comments. I'm upset about VJ too, he was the perfect foil for Klara's personality and he and Selma had such a great relationship. As for Agnes Cecilia, she's all about the frankness and sticking it to the man, even if she's not always successful.

I still have a ton of back log to update, but even the very powerful tea I drank won't let me do much more today. Maybe tomorrow. I just need some more playing time to get more inspiration.

Chapter 63: Childhood
« Reply #128 on: September 29, 2012, 06:30:30 PM »
Mom said I wasn't supposed to write until I'm older. But grandma said I could do it if it would cheer me up, so ha!

Everyone was very upset when grandpa died. Grandma locked herself in her room for two days. Everyone was worried she'd get sick. She didn't even come out when I told her we were eating pizza. Or when I turned up the sound of the TV. She usually loves to watch tv.

Mom said I could invite friends over to cheer me up. I would rather have grandpa back - even if he and grandma would be kissing and other stuff.

Anyway, I asked Racheal home after school. Grandma was feeling better and making sushi (it's her favorite). Racheal never had sushi before. She says they only eat salad or cereal at her house. Grandma told me that we eat more diverse (that means different kinds - I learnt that in school) food because of my other grandpa Chris ( the one that died before I was born) used to be a famous chef at the Bistro. And before he died he taught grandma all his secrets.



After we did homework we played George and the Dragon. I was George and Racheal was the dragon. I chased her all around the yard. She is really fast! Mom says she could be a sport star if she keeps it up.


After Racheal went home I went to sleep in my room. I have pictures of me and grandpa over my bed. It feels nice. I miss him a lot.


Here is a picture of my museum stuff. Dad took a picture of me when we were roasting marshmallows by the pond. It's nice, but I'm not allowed to light the fire if I'm by myself. I want to do it more often than the grownups have time to help me. I'm thinking of sneaking there and giving it a go myself. But it's right outside mom and dad's window. So, I'll probably not risk it.


Mom bought the park in front out house. It's called Summer Hill Springs. She built a house with bathrooms and a TV room, and a graveyard. Grandma says she's going to put grandpas grave there, and he might come out so we can see him. It sounds scary.


I was not very excited about a graveyard. But mom also ordered a HUGE playground. I've tried out everything, and it's really fun. I will show you!


There are swings.


A slide. It's kind of scary. And fast. That's why it's scary.


Lots of spring rides!


More swings. They're my favorite.


There's even a fire pit. I haven't really worked up the nerve to light it myself.


Here is mom's museum stuff. It's for the adult part.


Grandma let me add a picture of me on the swings to my museum stuff. She says it won't count but I can keep it there anyway. I plan to count it anyway - she can't stop me!


Tomorrow is my birthday. You can all come if you want. Mom is having a party, and she's invited all my friends from school. Even the ones who are already in High School. Racheal and Wanda have their birthday tomorrow too. I wonder if they will have caked up before my party? I have to go, school night.

Chapter 64: Teenage attitude
« Reply #129 on: September 29, 2012, 07:21:57 PM »
Yay, you came! (It's me Cecilia - or Cia as I have decided to call myself from now on, since it's cooler.)

Most of the kids from my year have already become teens, that's Wanda (the blond) and Racheal (with the headband) behind me. Becoming a teen was a big step, I didn't really want to grow up, but I didn't have a choice.



Teenage life started with a bad hair day. And I became a great kisser, since I realized that boys might not be so yucky after all.


I decided to tough it out, and not have a makeover until after the party because there was cake. That's Nick Collazo, he has a younger brother that is practically a twin or clone or what you'd call it. I'm lucky I don't have that to deal with.


Racheal is excitable and thought us having the same birthday was sooo cool. I'm so glad I decided we would be friends. She always cracks me up.


When everyone had left I got my makeover. I'm rocking the look if I say so myself.


This is my new room. It's soo cool. That's real concert posters mom took home from the stadium!


And they got me a guitar! I'm going to be a rock star! (That's my LTW by the way. Grandma it happy because it's artistic. Mom is unhappy because she says I'll never manage to SuperMax guitar. I'll just have to show her different don't I?


First day of High School. The bus driver was totally giving me attitude, but now I'm not scared of her anymore.


One thing hasn't changed though - homework still sucks. (And my teacher is still scary. Like I said before, total simbot!)


My first weekend as a teen, and I get to have a sleepover! There are lots of kids in my grade, I've met 9 so far, and there are more starting soon. Grandma cooked almost ten different dishes, she said a group of teenage boys can eat more than an average city block, they didn't really finish it all of, but it was close.


After all that food we needed to do some dancing. That's my cousin Corey in the counter. He's graduating soon. I'm dancing with Donell, he's rebellious like me. I think we'll have a beautiful friendship.


After the food, and the dancing, we went to sleep. Most put down their sleeping bags in the front yard.


Me and Quentin (totally cutie, who used to deliver out paper) found some privacy in grandma's study. We talked for what seemed like hours before blacking out.


The next day Quentin called and asked me to prom. How could I refuse? Mom was not happy, neither was grandma. Apparently paperboys aren't "good" enough for dynasty girls like me. (I confess their arguing made me want to go out with him even more). So here's me heading out to meet him and the limo he was waiting in.

I was only a little late, and he left without me! Just rolled down the window and said - meet you there! That's so anti establishment, I like it!



Here he is arriving at prom. He has his dads old tux (kind of dorky?)


By the time I arrived I met two new girls (there was almost only boys in my grade before). We're up to thirteen kids in my grade now! Mom says they were only seven kids when she was in school.


I was voted prom queen. Quentin asked me to go steady (and thinking of mom and grandma's annoyance I gladly said yes). I also had my first kiss - he was quite taken. I guess I really am a good kisser. And I got a picture to take home, it's a bit to corny to my taste.

Racheal says I look kind of butch in the photo. Maybe she's right? Quentin didn't seem to mind though.



Other news: grandpa has been spotted haunting the old Landgraab mansion next door. No one has lived there since Malcom mysteriously disappeared. There are rumors it's haunted, and not by VJ - by Malcom's parents.

Chapter 65: Rebel without a clue
« Reply #130 on: September 29, 2012, 08:33:56 PM »
[Klara's Note: I'm writing a exploitative nonfiction novel about teenage life today. And have asked Ceci...Cia to give me some insight into what she and her friends are up to after school. It seems things really haven't changed much from when I was young. They still feel as misunderstood by the adults as I felt so long ago. Though I do think Selma's free approach to child rearing is causing Cia some special problems, she seems to have been feeling rather down lately.]


*sigh*


*sigh*


My mother is ruining my life!



I'm miserable. And it's all mom's fault!

I don't have any problem standing up to authority, sticking it to the man ot even skipping school to show the world that I'm my own sim not bound by society's rules.

But it's really hard to rebel when everything you do is met with a vague smile and a "do whatever you feel like, dear." It's so patronizing! I bet she says it to annoy me, but she get's me every time. It's almost enough to make me want to get on honor roll and be valedictorian just to show her, but that would mean spending more time with miss simbot, so I don't think so.

Maybe if I got arrested? Yeah, that'll show her!



Today's Friday, perfect time to implement my plan to get a rise out of mom.

Plan 1: Skip school.

Hanging out in the park across from school - the truancy officers are bound to see me. (3 hours later - still no sign of any truancy officers).



Waiting for someone to take me to the principals office became boring, so I worked on my guitar skill instead.


Plan 2: Staying out after curfew.

Called a few of my friend from school and asked them to meet me at Mick's. My cousin Corey was there, he was pretty good.



Quentin was there, and Claudio (he's my study partner in simlish grammar). Quentin was awkward, and became upset when I talked to Claudio. So what if he flirted with me a little? A lot of guys flirt with me, that doesn't mean I go around kissing every new guy I see.


When I told him to calm down Quentin stormed out of there saying I had issues. Whatever!

I was really angry at him, so I might have flirted back when Claudio talked to me again. Serves Quentin right.



The night was a total bust on the mom front. The police never came for me, and when I got back home around two in the morning mom was up watching TV. I was all prepared she'd start yelling. But she just said "had a nice night? Wanna watch some TV?" I swear she's a freak! No one else's mom would say stuff like that.

Saturday night I had some people from school over. I was just telling Nick he was a total sweetie for planning to buy flowers to Kate (a new girl who is seriously cool and moved here from Bridgeport two days ago) when Quentin came rushing in the kitchen and accused me of cheating on him! Then he told me I wasn't allowed to talk to any other guys, since I had agreed to be his girl.



I got so mad. Who does he think he is! Just because I agreed to being his girlfriend doesn't mean he gets to decide what I can and can not do. So I called him and Llama, his mom a Llama and everyone in his family freakish Llamas.


He was all self righteous and did a silly impression of me (I will not repeat it - all you need to know is it was dumb).


All that did was make me really mad. So I told him we were through.

I told him I'd never be with a guy stupid enough to think he could order me around like some dog or cattle. Sim women and men were equal, and he clearly wasn't evolved enough to realize we weren't living in the dark ages any more (or something like that, there was a lot of screaming anyway. But that was the point I wanted to get across).



Cia: And if I ever see you at my house again I'll tear your heart out!


Sunday I spent with dad and aunt Emelie working on my museum exhibit. It was nice to have a day without boys and their crazy ideas about how girls should behave.


Monday I felt better and decided to try Plan 2B: Staying out after curfew and doing something clearly illegal.

Luckily I had become good friends with Kate, she met up with me at the pool and she shared some tips about how to get in trouble, she's clearly a pro (That's why she's here. Her parent's sent her to live with an aunt since she got in so much trouble in Bridgeport).

I could also have asked Racheal, but she's a bit to sweet to come up with pranks worthy of the police getting involved.



I ended up egging a house. It was both exhilarating and nerve wrecking, mostly because I really wanted to get caught, and I had to research the police officers and where they lived, so that I could egg one of their houses (Kate's tip) for maximum provocation.


It worked! Kind of.

The officer was angry, but once I gave him my name, he just told me to go home "I'll let it slide this once. And tell your mom she was great in Saturdays game."

Like I said. My mom is ruining my life! I can't even get arrested and it's all because of her.



*sigh*


*sigh*


So, I have to come up with some new plans.  Took some cool pictures of myself in the photo booth though. The one top right is my favorite. What's yours?

Chapter 66: Bulking up
« Reply #132 on: September 30, 2012, 02:55:47 PM »
Adult life was all right. The one thing I was not happy about was not being home enough, I barely got to see Cia, as she now calls herself, before going off to work. My best bet was catching her late at night after work and she finally gets home from wherever she is spending her nights. She's had some boy trouble, I know that everyone can't be as lucky as I was with Rikard, but I'm hopeful she'll get over this rough patch and find someone nice.

Reaching the top of the Sports career is taking a lot longer than I planned. I have already completed all my BlackOps, but am still slogging along at level 8. I'm great friends with my boss but she tells me she can't get me any more promotions, apparently the team has new management that have "guidelines" she can't overstep.



In order to advance faster I have started to work more on my athletic skill, which has led to some side effects. Yesterday Rikard told me he was worried about me, since I'm mostly skin and bone these days. Me loosing all that weight has really made my wrinkles worse too.


Since Cia and Racheal became best friends Racheal is spending almost every afternoon at our house, something Sylvester is very happy about. It seems she's the one of his children he gets along with the best.

She's a great influence on Cia as well. When they are together Cia is less likely to do something borderline illegal or stupid. I got a call the other night about her egging a police officer's house. Luckily he accepted some season tickets as payment for the clean up. Of course, I wont tell Cia that. Like I won't let her get a rise out of me with her behavior, lucky for me I can channel all my frustration into maxing the athletic skill. I have thirteen days till I become an elder and I'm hoping to max my career before that.


With all this hard training I have been doing I really need to eat more. So I've started to have at least two helpings of every dish. And to always add extra dessert.


Mom got me a deep fryer and an ice cream machine. "You're all skin and bones girl, you've got to eat" I may be skin and bones, but I'm also muscle, unfortunately all my muscles are going to disappear once I become an elder, and since I don't want to look like a dried up twig for eternity, I'v taken moms advice and added a couple helpings of deep fried ice cream to my daily diet. It's a sacrifice I have to make, right?


A crispy and creamy delicious sacrifice.

Chapter 67: Clueless
« Reply #133 on: September 30, 2012, 05:15:27 PM »
"Come home with me after school" Patricia said, "we'll have fun". Little did I know that her version of fun was doing homework together. What's with all the girls and being goody two shoes? Is there any wonder I prefer hanging out with the guys?


Things didn't really improve at Patricia's once her dad came home. So I headed down to Central Park to meet up with the gang (not an actual gang, though that would be cool and a great way to provoke my mom) Patricia didn't come. She kind of looked like she wanted to, but her dad said no - and she obeyed him. (Sometimes I wished mom would try to stop me from doing things, that'd give me a reason to fight with her).

Anyway, met up with Claudio, Nick and Nathaniel.



After a while Donell showed up.

Donell: Here, I found them in the dumpster behind the Warehouse.
Cia: Why are you giving them to me?
Donell: I thought all girls liked flowers.
Nick: Cia and Donell kissing in a tree, k i s s i n g...
Cia: Shut up! We're just friends, right Donell?
Donell: Yeah, sure, just friends.



We hung out and then I played the new song I learnt, the guys are so nice letting me practice with them. I'm so going to be a rock star when I grow up. Most of them aren't really up to staying out after curfew though.


Soon, only me and Donell were left. I'm so glad we're friends, he's easy to talk to since we have so much in common.

Donell: Here take these.
Cia: Where do you find all these flowers?
Donell: Around.
Cia: Shouldn't you give them to one of the girls in or grade? I think Wanda thinks you're cute, I could ask around for you, hear if she's interested.
Donell: Don't bother, I'm kind of into someone else.
Cia: Who? Come on, you can tell me!
Donell: Um, no.
Cia: Oh, come on!
Donell: I said no! Don't ask again. All right?
Cia: Fine! But I think she'd totally go for you, I mean, lot's of girls thinks you're hot.
Donell: And you?
Cia: What?
Donell: Do you think I'm hot?
Cia: Don't be silly, I don't think about you that way. You're one of my best buds. Wait...!, you weren't talking about me were you?
Donell: No, no just... someone...I don't want talk about it, all right?
Cia: Good, because you and me, weird.
Donell: Got it, weird. Let's pretend we never had this talk.
Cia: Yeah, never happened.

Like I said, he's so easy to talk to.



The longer I was in High School, the more bored I became. I mean, what's the point of getting high grades? When I'm a rock star people won't care about weather or not I failed sim history. Besides, my history teacher had serious issues, and I was not going to try to get in her favor.

Once I decided to skip school, not in order get in trouble but because I really couldn't be bothered to go there when we had history class, I hung out at the park by the consignment store. It wasn't great for tips, but I could practice my performances.



It also helped me get some anger out. Mom and I are still at odds. But whenever I strum a few riffs on my guitar I feel most of my anger and frustration drain away.


Maybe I should start writing my own songs? Grandma says she thinks I'd be good at it. I've started on one about being a teenage girl

So what if we broke up?
I'll still become a rock star
I've got the right moves
And I don't need you

And guess what
I'm having more fun
now that we're done
than I ever had with you!


It's not really finished yet, but as you can guess it's about me and that stupid Quentin.


Speaking of Quentin, guess who I saw first thing when I walked in the house today? You guessed it, Quentin.

Cia: What are you doing here? Get out!
Quentin: I was invited, so no.
Cia: By who?
Quentin: Your grandma, Llama girl.
Cia: Get out you piece of trash!

Luckily he left soon after that.



I can't believe grandma invited that cretin to our house, after the way he treated me. So I decided to get even. She'll never see this coming.


Gotta go call Donell and tell him about my latest prank, it's not strange to have two best friends right? Rachael would never understand this kind of stuff.

Do you know? I really think that Selma is a much nicer and more understanding mother than Klara ever was.
But Klara is a superb grandma!
I love Cia to bits by now. I'm hoping Donnell will be The One.
I so enjoyed these new updates! :)

Yes she is, even though her parenting style creates such big problems for Cia. Klara was never very comfortable being a mother, as you might have guessed, she never autonomously did anything with her girls, but as a grandmother she has been a lot more interested right from the start.

I suspect Donell has the flirty trait, or he is really in to Cia. She? Who knows?

I really have been trying to let my sims do more things autonomously, I'm usually a lot more controlling, but have been having so much fun with letting them run amok (and trying to use all the traits I don't normally try out).

And I absolutely love Cia, she's the most fun I've had with a sim in ages. She always wanted to stay out after curfew, but never got arrested, unlike my teenage sims usually do. I didn't know the rebellious trait was that powerful.

Thank you for commenting so often, it's nice to know someone is interested in reading.

Chapter 68: Birthdays
« Reply #137 on: October 01, 2012, 05:01:16 AM »
As my birthday came closer and closer I realized I wouldn't be able to complete my requirements before becoming an elder. Having faced that, I was able to relax and enjoy the coming weekend and all the celebrations a lot better.

Our latest maid is wearing a beekeepers helmet to work, he says it's because someone is going around throwing flasks of angry bees at sims, so he has to be prepared. Mom approves of his attitude (and she is always highly suspicious of the maids, maybe she's mellowing?) 



My darling Rikard became an elder.


Sylvester was happy for his brother, but he couldn't quite hide his heartbreak from Cari passing on.


Here's Rikard's new wardrobe choices, formal is the same as before, so it's not included.


He went straight from the cake to the pond, he's so much like his father sometimes.


That night I managed to rise to level 9 of my career. I celebrated by bringing my boss, and best friend, Sandra home from work. We had a nice relaxing chat, and she even gave me an additional raise.


Before I went to bed I checked in on my little girl. Tomorrow she becomes a YA, I can't believe she's growing up this fast! Also, she has developed the skill to sleep with her eyes open. That was kind of disturbing.


Bright and early the next morning we had a birthday bash. It wasn't just my little girl turning into a YA, me and Emelie are becoming Elders as well.

We decided to go with a younger crowd for this party, Cia invited some of her friends.



She was just as unhappy about that hairstyle now, as when she was turning into a teenager. She quite liked the length though, so she's keeping that. This is her new look. She gained the brooder trait. I hope that doesn't make her even moodier.


Her wardrobe, there is a lot of blue as always.


Then it was my turn. I refuse to wear the same shirt as my mother!


Emelie's turn.


I got my regular hairstyle and color back, have to look young so that the competition doesn't loose it's respect for me. I also managed to get something different than mom's shirt to wear. (Thank Good!)


Emelie immediately wanted to retire, and proceeded to do so.


I missed most of my celebration since I had a game to go to. The guest dropped off as well, and the rest of the family was left cleaning up the mess.


It didn't take very long. We're pros at this point. And yeah, I won the game. A nice birthday present to myself, and one step closer to becoming a Sports Legend.

Chapter 69: Drama at City Hall
« Reply #138 on: October 01, 2012, 05:32:36 AM »
Today my baby is graduating. She looks so smart all dressed up for the ceremony.


I made sure to ride in the same cab as her down to City Hall, I can still not wrap my head around the fact that my daughter is a YA now.


Cia and I weren't at odds for once. "Come on old people" she said before heading in to the main hall. I looked around and realized she was right, we were all old now. I hope she finds someone special soon, it can't be fun living up on the hill with only us elders for company.


It was a good thing Sylvester had decided to join us at City Hall, because as soon as we stepped out after the ceremony the sparkles came for him. I would have hated for him to go all alone up at the house.


Now, because of graduation, all of his children were there to see him off. 


Rikard was devastated to loose his big brother, but I think Wanda took it the hardest, fainting right there in front of City Hall.


The family tradition of doing something together after graduation was given a pass this time, since no one was in any form of cheerful mood.

Before all that drama Agnes Cecilia had managed to graduate with honor and be voted most popular.

She decided to celebrate by starting on her way to becoming a rock star (I do not approve, this time I'm not just saying that, I really think it might prove to difficult for her to do, and I'g hate for her to set herself up for failure. But as she's a YA now, I will focus my nagging on her getting married and giving me grand babies).



The moment she signed up for her new career, someone called and questioned her guitar skills. She was challenged to make 1,000 simoleons in tips, and she got right to work.


Later that afternoon Racheal showed up at our house. She was crying and I did my best to comfort her. She said being at our house made her feel closer to her father.


When Cia came home from the theater she asked Racheal if she wanted to move in with us. We had room, and she really wanted to be there for her friend. Racheal wasn't getting along so well with her brother since he's taken up witchcraft and Wanda was already planning to move out with her boyfriend, so she was happy to accept.


Her favorite color is purple. She looks a lot like her mother and has green grey eyes.


This was also the night I was made a Sports Legend. (Need new outfit for work).


The next day was spent completing museum pieces. My elder museum exhibit.


Cia's YA museum exhibit.


Now there's only one thing left to do.

How does this thing work anyway? Just push the button?


Everyone has made themselves scares, so I can go through this ritual by myself.


All I need to do to achieve immortality is to take that first bite, it's kind of mind boggling really.


Well, the taste wasn't really up to par with what mom usually makes, but it's not terrible. Oh, wait what is that feeling? Ah, I feel younger.


With my new death flower in my pocket we all head down to Central Park for a celebratory BBQ.

R.I.P. Sylvester! It's so nice Rachael moved in. She is a striking Sim.
Cia has lovely eyes. Her Ray-bans were cool, but her eyes are too pretty to be covered up.
Congratulations on your Second Immortal!

Well done on your second immortal. With that one, you've doubled the number of immortals I've made in all my attempts combined. :) Sad, but true.

Chapter 71:Brooding

Mom and dad were enjoying themselves a lot more now since mom turned immortal. Watching the stars after mom got of work and spending hours just relaxing together. It was nice to see, but it really drove home the point that it was all up to me now. The continuing dynasty, completing the requirements and bringing in the next heir.



For my second BlackOp The rockiest road to rock all I had to do was read a book, considering the family I was raised in, that wasn't really any trouble.


The manager at our bookstore also called me down to help out with Sorting the section I'm thinking we might have to get them new management, I mean, shouldn't they be able to work on that themselves?


Whenever I got to stressed out from thinking of all the things I had to get done, a lite time with my guitar would always help me relax.


It couldn't stop me from worrying about the requirements though. I just knew I had to find a spouse, but ever since I broke up with Quentin I hadn't really been able to see myself with any man. Grandma was clear about the rules, I had to get married. And the scariest part? Was that I was no longer completely opposed to the idea, I just didn't know how to go about meeting any guys. I mean, guys that didn't turn into friends. I had plenty of friends that were guys, I just didn't think about them that way.

And if I found someone to marry, how could I be sure he wouldn't turn out to be like Quentin once we had tied the knot? Just like I knew I had to get married, I knew divorce wasn't something that would solve anything. Besides, who'd want to live the rest of her life in the same house as her ex-husband?

So time went on, I advanced to level 5 of the Rock Star career and I still hadn't decided what to do. Or how to go about finding myself a husband.



On my free days Grandma always sent me out on errands, and this day was no different. But what awaited me when I got back home, was something new.


Meet Darryl


Mike


Roman


and Jarvis.


Clearly Grandma had been watching to much TV again.

Cia: No, this is not OK!
Klara: What? It worked for the Bachelorette.
Cia: You can't compare my life to that of one of your favorite HumanInteraction spin-off shows!

I was this close to actually banging my guitar in Grandma's head when mom saved me from myself.

Selma: Isn't that Claudio you used to hang out with when you were younger?
Cia: Yeah, looks like him, I thought he was still a teen.
Selma: Why don't you go over there and see what he's been up to, save him from Alice, he look rather uncomfortable.
Klara: She should stay away from that boy, he used to deliver papers just like that Quentin.
Selma: My girl can talk to anyone she want's to.
Klara: You've got to tell her like it is...
Selma: You don't get to decide...

And that was when I decided to leave that disturbing conversation in order to talk to Claudio. He might be workaholic, ambitious and a (*sigh*) vehicle enthusiast, but at least he didn't drive me insane like some others I could mention. He wasn't really witty or funny, but he was comfortable to talk to, and had really nice eyes. I found out he'd become hydrophobic since aging up to a YA, but since I had a tendency to brood, I didn't rally think it was a deal breaker.

So I found myself thinking "why not him?" Sure, I'll not get a great love story like my mother, but when have I ever aspired to be like my mom? Maybe he'd be exactly what I'd need, and maybe, just maybe our friendship could grow into something more.



The next morning I woke up with a new sense of purpose and called Claudio. We met up at the beach and I gave him a shower-in-a-can as a gift. We spent a lot of time talking about the future, his hopes and dreams of becoming Leader of the Free World and mine of Rock Stardom.


As he was driving me home, I made my decision. I'd ask him to marry me, and see what he thought.


Cia: I know you said you didn't have anyone special in your life, maybe I could be your special someone?


Cia: So, what do you say? Partners?
Claudio: All right, let's get married.
Cia: That's just ... wonderful.



I felt both relieved and scared. I only hope I was doing the right thing.

What an interesting line-up of men. It must have been quite daunting. And most people seem to be in their swimmies too!
Wow, yes! Claudio... I remember Cia upsetting Quentin by flirting with him.
The gift of a shower-in-a-can cracked me up. I hope she wasn't trying to tell him something.
Yay! Engagement! :)
