Poor Sookie!  At least she has Emily to love.

Rose Garland's Immortal Dynasty - Cooo-eee, it's meee, Emily (22Mar)
« Reply #54 on: March 22, 2016, 05:22:31 AM »

Ohmigosh ohmigosh ohmigosh :D  Nanna Rose has said I can write her family blog this week, so here I am, it’s me, Emily.   The last time anyone saw me before this I was a tiny nooboo in mum’s arms, and now I’m all grown up!  Nanna Rose says to tell you all she’s sorry she has neglected the story but she hopes my chapter will make up for it!
 
So, just to introduce myself; here’s a couple of my fave pics off my Simstragram  of me growing up :

SELFIE :



Making grandad Barney disapprove :



Posing for nanna’s new camera :



And then here’s one of the very few photos I allowed of me as a hefty teenager – luckily I shot-up and grew into my size!




I’m sure you will all remember Mum’s name is Sookie, she’s lovely but she’s well old now, and has eaten some of that disgusting fish, flower and potion cake that nanny Rose and grandad Barney eat all the time!    Here’s a recent snap of them all on the couch – they spend A LOT of time on the couch now they’re old!




My dad’s name was Jermaine, but he died before I was born.  Mum cried a lot at first, but she’s ok now, on the couch!  They’ve all retired and live off their investment income, having all become “fabulously wealthy” in their careers.

Uncle Romeo has given me a photo of himself to post – he says this is for all the ladies out there!   Eugh!




Anyway, the real reason I get to do the blog is I need some help.  I have THREE suitors :O  And now have such a dilemma to deal with about choosing which one to marry, and although I have talked for hours with the family :



 I am no closer to making a decision, and to be quite honest, if it were up to me, I would stay single forever, nanna Rose says that is not an option, I have to carry on the family line…. Well hurumph, Romeo has been “carrying on the family line” with aplomb, throughout the town for years, but my cousins don’t count.  Nanna Rose says I HAVE to find a husband.

Let me tell you about Edmund.  He’s our gardener and I really like him,  he has a gorgeous face, some most attractive personality traits, is clearly a very skilled gardener, but... on the downside; he’s a bit older, an adult whereas I am still young.  I don’t want to have him move in and suddenly find like mum did that he’s close to his pension!  He also has a bit of a tummy:







Then there’s my blondie, he’s very handsome; he works with Romeo at the Space Centre, and is super fit.  He’s a bit mean, and really wary about getting involved with me; some sort of commitment issues I reckon :




And then there’s my dear, pale, slightly quirky Richard.  He has bright pink hair, but I know I can change that – I kind of like that he has the confidence to walk around like this :






Richard’s very young, says he’s a bro (??), like me he loves the outdoors, and a bit of a goofball, BUT, here’s the big but… he’s unemployed!  I really like him but what would nanny rose think if I bought home someone like him?

So, come on readers,  while I am working on my logic skills so I can reach the top of my “Master of the Real” artist career, give me some advice please? 



Thanks for any suggestions!

I don't think I've laughed so much as I did reading through this. I love your dynasty! Romeo looks so much like Paolo, probably just the hair though. That screenshot of them meditating while Grim visits, such fun =D

Heyyyyy!  Emily's a pretty girl!  I loved her expressions in her childhood photos!  She looks kind of sassy once she grew up!  Cute!  Romeo made me laugh!  But my vote is for Edmund!  Personally, I think he is adorable.

A quick update from Emily :

Oh dear, so, Edmund came over and...................




So, I had to explain.... it's over...




so now we're down to 2 candidates, Mean Blondie Ian, or Sweet Pale Richard... Nanna Rose says I need to hurry, they might get culled (whatever that means!)

Since I'm all for being practical, I'd choose Edmund anyway.  If he weren't elder, I'd still have voted for Edmund.
You now have 5 members in the household and Romeo's still young. You move in a spouse and have a child, that's 7 members.

Haha, I shortened my post and PMed you instead.
Whatever you choose will be right for your dynasty.   ;D

I think Emily takes after the SKL side - the olive skin and big mouth :D

Oh my!  I gotta go with Richard.  There's always hair dye and getting him a job would be easy ;)

Thank you; your vote has been registered ;)

Aww, thank you  :-*  I always wonder if Rose is a little too snooty, but I'm glad you see the humour! :)


well, poo.

Darn straight, poo indeed.  I kind of suspected, as he's been Rose's gardener for a really long time.  He would have great genes and be useful to have around, but there's enough old croaks in this dynasty.  We need some youthful vigour, albeit pale vigour!! :D

Thanks everyone - Emily has almost made her mind up!

Oh rats... time zones. I'm still gonna add my vote anyway. Richard! But in all seriousness depends on your strategy with Edmund being an elder. Sometimes strategically an elder is the best decision.

Hello darlings, it’s me again!  I do hope you don’t mind me handing over the reins to darling Emily in my last blog?  Didn’t she do a lovely job?

Anyhoo, it seems the fates took the decision out of her hands, because dear Richard (Remember the candidate?  Skinny, puny, pink hair, unemployed?)  He came through with flying colours.  He got a super new hair-do and MY GOSH didn’t he hit the the gym? 
 


In my view, anyone who would have a total makeover to win the heart of one of my girls is worthy of her heart.  And he’s a lovely chap; always smiling and playful.  Although the goofy element of his characteristic worries me; I keep sending him to the bathroom mirror to calm himself down!  We don’t want to lose him to hysteria!
Don’t they look super happy together:
 


And of course, when he proposed it was a done deal (she’s a sucker for a bit of bling).



Oh for heavens sake, Romeo is with me... unfortunately he has read all the comments about how handsome he is, and it’s gone to his head.  He wants me to show you his latest photo of him in his work uniform; he wants to know if he’s “as hot as Luke” whatever that means?



And to tell you all he’s now the father of 19 lovely children, and the latest, young Jack Kay,is his son with June Kay who now lives next door in the Spencer house.  This is her 5th child, she’s a ”widow” poor thing; I think the other children’s father might have been one of our staff  :o  :o  :o



Anyway thank you Romeo, back to Emily.  So we had another wedding, great grandma Rose got her hat out, baked a cake, and threw the best wedding yet. 
I love this shot of Emily, how happy does she look? 



It was a gorgeous day, we were so lucky with the weather and being springtime all the flowers were out :





I’ve blurred the focus of this shot so you can’t see my wrinkles :



Emily had a few quiet moments through the day, I know she was thinking that this is where her father should have been sitting – RIP Jermaine, he would have been so proud:



But each time she looked sad, dear Richard was there to comfort her :


 
And of course I was too :



And believe it or not, this photo was supposed to be Emily having a hug from her mum Sookie, not sure quite what the photographer did wrong here :



 I was a bit miffed at being left to do the dishes while everyone was partying, why isn’t there an option to hire a cleaner at these occasions?



In the evening, we had a bit of a disco, it took a while to get going :



But once the DJ chap put on some decent catchy music, we all joined in :



All rather fun, if a little undignified:



And we danced and danced all night :

Rose looks very stylish in her hat and navy-blue dress.  She really makes that dress look great!
Barney also looks dashing in the tux.
Lol, Sookie didn't dress up. I hate when my sims do that. I click up on them and switch them to party clothes myself because.....I can.

Emily looks super happy! Looking forward to meeting, wow, Gen5 already!?
You're moving right along!  ;D

oh, look at them all dancing!  It looks like fun!  I've had that glitch with the hug before also.  It was very disturbing looking.  It looks like it was a beautiful wedding!

Romeo sure is handsome in his work uniform!  Luke gives two thumbs up, and likes his hair also.  I kind of did a double take, in fact, with the uniform, black hair and location of photo I swear it WAS Luke for a moment.  I can't believe Romeo is an elder already!  That's a sweet pic of him with his nooboo - nice that he visits them.  My pollinators don't really visit with theirs.  I'm such a bad watcher, I don't really pay my spares much attention at all.

@nettlejuice isn't it funny. These two frequently go in for a hug and it ends up totally awk! They miss by about 6ft!

@oshizu Totally not Sookie's fault, it's her lazy watcher for not noticing she needed a shower before the wedding! She turned up in a lovely M-O-B outfit then got changed after her shower! Gen 5 is on pause for me to do the cooking challenge!

@shewolf13 One party I was lucky enough to coincide with the maid service. Was brilliant; I think that might have been what killed him actually!

@wfgodot I am stupidly overjoyed that Luke gives Romeo the thumbs up! What ARE we watchers like eh?  I must admit Romeo is the first spare I've paid attention to, simply because he ended up so handsome. I like to roll the dice it's the sex of my heirs, but I do feel it should've been Romeo. Sorry Sookie

Are you kidding? I've only ever used it to put all the rampant elders to sleep I shall investigate this forthwith. Does it work with the party guests too? That will be brilliant and will save me from carpal tunnel injury from all the dragging plates and glasses and fattening cake to the nano can!

He is handsome and quite buff and a lovely chap, but SO pale! I shouldn't be "paleist" because I'm pale myself,, but it's just unattractive in a sim. And there's nothing I can do but keep him covered up! Fortunately, it doesn't appear to be a dominant gene for his offspring 😆

About Piper/Carol of Cleaning, I just tried at Magnolia Blossom Park. Everyone in my club (none of whom are in the Musical Genius sim's household) immediately started cleaning up the grilled dishes, but the other NPCs at the park did nothing.
Before this, I've only ever used at after a party, and the other household members cleaned up. I can't say whether non-household NPCs will help clean or not.
