I wondered how long it would be before the youngsters here would question hotpants!  The term dates back to the 1960s and 1970s.  When Metro first used it here, I nearly fell out of my chair laughing.  Like a blast from the past.

From Wikipedia:

Hot pants -

Categorized as "short shorts", they commonly have an inseam length of two inches or less. These are short, tight shorts, usually made of cotton, nylon, or some other common material. They are meant to emphasize the buttocks and the legs. Launched by fashion designer Mary Quant during the "Swinging London" scene of the mid 1960s,[5] hot pants were very popular up to the early 1970s. During this time the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team created a unit of usherettes called the Hot Pants Patrol, who wore all-in-one garments incorporating hot-pants.

I'm happy to see things are going fine in Man's world. House is really nice, but Agnes looks great now. Hopefully some of her pics will be part of home decor. And you're right about steel bladder. It is mandatory first LTR for anyone in my dynasty.  And I also admire your patience to wait so long for second generation to be born! Looking forward to see more of this story.

I hate explaining my bits. In my opinion, either you get it or you don't. But, the following bit needs a little set-up. Wild pointed out to me yesterday the forum rule of black-only type (I had been using different color for my section headers). My response was not up to my usual standards (sorry, Wild) and the ensuing IM with Pam caused stress for both of us. Long story short...everything is straightened out. So, ladies, this bit's for you...

A Colorless Lifetime Wish Achievement

Things are really starting to pop with the Mans. Hotpants #1 is churning out sculptures like there’s no tomorrow and Recipe just accomplished his Lifetime Wish of Culinary Librarian.



But, Recipe was a little sad—the color has been removed from his life and Dynasty story. Still, he needed to call her and apologize. He needed to be an example. Recipe took a deep breath and made the call.



Pam: “Hello? Pam Marsden speaking.”



Recipe: “Pam, it’s Recipe Man.”
Pam: “Oh, hi Recipe. Hey, what’s happened to your story?”
Recipe: “Pam, you were right. I need to adhere to the rules and remove all color from my story. So, I did.”
Pam: “But-”
Recipe: “Sorry for the misunderstanding, Pam.”
Pam: “That’s okay, but-”
Recipe: “Anyway, I miss the old look but I want my story to be consistent and professional looking.”



“Thank you, T-...Met...(sigh) Recipe. But, you’re misunderstanding. It’s just the type that needs to be black, not pictures. For example don’t do this.”



Recipe: “Oh, my gosh! So sorry, Pam. Well...talk to you later.”
Pam: “WAIT! You need to change things back. I need my hex codes asap.”
Recipe: “Hold on. Gotcha covered....”



“Okay, Pam. We’re good.”



Pam: “Yessssss!!!”
Recipe: “Oh, Pam? One more thing.”
Pam: “Sure.”
Recipe: “Please tell her I haven’t changed my mind. That’s one part of my story I simply can’t change now.”
Pam: “Are you sure? It’s going to tear her up.”
Recipe: “I know. Give her a big hug for me. Maybe the two of you can watch Dancing with the Stars or something.”
Pam: “Okay. Bye, Recipe.”



Pam: “I’m sorry, Agnes. He likes the new hotpants Agnes more.”

I wonder if pics of sim-Pam will be showing up all over Carl & Pam's forum, like the Cigar Guy meme.

I believe Bella was referred to as hotpants because of the fact that she always wore hotpants.   :)

And said hotpants turned up in more than a few photos.


And OMG. Pam is going to KILL you Metro (that is if she doesn't DIE laughing!!!)

Sim-Pam puts in an appearance in the Man Dynasty!  Love it!!  I hope we can see more of her.  And enquiring minds would like to know - how did you get the black and white pictures?

Pam cuts me a lot of slack — more than anyone else I think. But, she also knows how much I respect her, and if you look past the parody that's all that bit is. Respect for a colleague. She's probably needed more tolerance with some other bits than that one.  ;)

Maybe so, but Metro is such a wonderful member of our team here.  He's pure genius with his writing and challenge concepts, but he's also strict when necessary.  The respect is mutual.  :)

This right here is the reason I am drawn to this forum. The friendliest, loving place on the internet. The mutual respect, the kindness, the niceness and I could go on forever but I won't. I just want everyone to know how I feel about Carl and Pam's forum!!  ;D I know I went off-topic and I apologize. Back to the Man!!  ;D ;D

The Man’s TV Sellathon Roundup

Both Recipe and Agnes have been working their fingers to the bone and have come a long way. Agnes finished Recipe’s Young Adult ice sculpture and portrait. Masterpieces would have been nice, but at least they’re both Brilliant. Recipe’s Adult birthday—when he supposedly becomes fully mature—is just two days away. Our founder was able to find a camera at the consignment shop, so Agnes will be able to take a Young Adult photo of Recipe too. But, what’s this? Agnes is sad.



She desperately needs a break. Recipe quietly came up behind Agnes and gave her some words of encouragement...and a nice surprise.



Agnes: “What the..? Why are you wearing a cowboy hat? And why is there a TV crew in my art studio?”
Recipe: “Because it’s showtime my precious cowgirl! You’ve been working so hard, Agnes. I have too. There’s too many paintings collecting dust and there’s too much food in the fridge. So, I called a TV crew to come over and we’re going to rustle up some extra cash and sell this stuff. We can even donate the money to charity if you want. Just look at the teleprompter. It’ll be simple.”
Agnes: “I love this idea. I’m in.”



Recipe: “Yeehaw! Hi everyone. I’m Recipe Man.”
Agnes: “Howdy pardners! I’m Agnes Man.”
Recipe: “And together we’re going to bring Immortal TV viewers 5 special packages available only today—hand selected combinations of Brilliant and Masterpiece paintings to go along with mouth-watering Perfect gourmet meals.”
Agnes: “So, let’s get started with our first package. This is item #5791. This features not only a Brilliant original painting entitled Hurricane ABC, but also a family-sized portion of Perfect Lobster Thermidor.”
Recipe: “Wait a minute...you mean if someone calls today they get the painting AND the meal?”
Agnes: “That’s right. Shipped in the same box.”
Recipe: “Incredible. Agnes, tell our great audience more about that beautiful painting.”
Agnes: “We all remember the horrible tragedy that befell Sailboat Town when Hurricane ABC hit years ago. This is a reminder of that beautiful town before the tragedy. It’s how I remember Sailboat Town when I visited as a little girl.”
Recipe: “What kind of special price can we offer viewers today, Agnes?”
Agnes: “1000 simoleans.”
Recipe: “Now that is amazing because I know for a fact that the painting is worth 2000 simoleans by itself. The phones are lighting up folks, act fast on this one!”



Agnes: “Our next package is item #6092 and features my Masterpiece painting entitled Sailboat Town’s Tornado.”
Recipe: “Oh, my gosh, that’s right. I try to forget the fact that Sailboat Town was hit by a devastatingly powerful tornado 3 days after the hurricane.”
Agnes: “Right. This painting is a beautiful family I met during my childhood visit to Sailboat Town. Tell everyone why you picked this wonderful meal, Recipe.”
Recipe: “Just like the Lobster Thermidor I had to stick with seafood for your tribute painting to Sailboat Town and went with Grilled Salmon. It’s absolutely delicious. If anyone were still living in Sailboat Town I know that they’d appreciate it. Okay you cowpokes, saddle up to this deal for only 1250 simoleans. Again, that’s item #6092.”



Recipe: “Hey, that looks like my great-great-great grandfather Imda.”
Agnes: “Indeed it is. I found some old courthouse records and his full name was Imda Foist. He was one of the first Sims to settle in this area.”
Recipe: “Yeah, legend has it that Imda was quite the turkey farmer, so I thought a nice combo with the painting would be to offer viewers my famous Stuffed Turkey. Beautifully hand-carved moist turkey meat and delicious stuffing to enjoy while someone looks at the painting.”
Agnes: “This 3rd package is item #2395 and it’s priced to go fast at 3275 simoleans.”



Recipe: “Wow. Now this painting is really different, Agnes. What style does this fall into?”
Agnes: “Lipstick.”
Recipe. “Hmmm...I see. Tell viewers more about this unique offering.”
Agnes: “Item #4609 is really special and a personal favorite of mine. The painting is called Prince Alboo Becomes Warlord. It’s my take on a similar image I saw on the grade school bathroom wall long ago. I asked myself, “Instead of the bathroom profanity next to the image...what if this prince became a great warlord and was issuing his first powerful command to his fellow warriors?” And similarly, instead of imposing my own idea of what Prince Alboo might have said by blatantly writing out the words, I decided to let the viewer of the painting make their own interpretations of what that command might have been.”
Recipe: “That’s very interesting. I think the perfect meal to go with the Prince Alboo painting is Key Lime Pie. Just picture yourself part of an ancient war party. Wait...what’s that?! A charging elephant! You quickly summon your warriors. The elephant is enraged and moves towards the women and children. What will you do as the warlord? You bark out a powerful command. The elephant is surrounded and eventually succombs to the skill and fearlessness of your battle-hardened villagers. Everyone is hungry and wants the tribal hotpants to cook Key Lime Pie.”
Agnes: “We’re letting item #4609 fly out the door at 2400 simoleans, but if you call in the next 15 minutes we’re going to also throw in a Prince Alboo bobblehead for your car featuring his formal grass skirt and ivory beads outfit.”



Agnes: “I can’t believe it. Where has the time gone? Folks, we’ve come to our last special package that we’re offering today.”
Recipe: “It has gone fast and has been a lot of fun. We’ve saved the best for last. My Perfect Tri-Tip Steak alongside Agnes’ beautiful Meat-Lover’s Nightmare Masterpiece.”
Agnes: “That’s right, Recipe. The concept for this painting was loosly based on a painting I did years ago of sausages and hamburgers entitled A Vegetarian Has a Bad Day.”
Recipe: “Clever. You turned the whole idea around and breathed new life into it. Very smart. The Tri-Tip Steak I’m offering everyone is special because the customer never knows how many tips will be in the box with the painting. It’s a surprise and just depends on how generous I’m feeling at the moment. I’ve made Quad Tip Steak before, and Penta-Tip Steak. I’ve even gone crazy and have made Milli-Tip Steak. And If I’m in a bad mood I might “forget” the steak completely and you’d just end up with...Tri.”
Agnes: That’s a good tip, Recipe.”
(laugh track is cued up)
Recipe: “Well, cowboys and cowgirls, Item #9628 is the last special for today and can be yours for only 3000 simoleans. Wait...our producer is telling me something. Wow, only 75 of this package are left. No, now it's down to only 50. Act fast, folks, so you're not disappointed. We hope you’ve enjoyed our special painting and food packages. See you next time.”
Agnes: “Good night, everyone.”
