Pippin:  After many failed attempts at starting a Life States Dynasty...
There are two things wrong with that statement.  First off, it's a How Many Life States in Your World Dynasty, and secondly, the only failure in those attempts was that you couldn't stay interested in your founders.
Pippin:  Well, it just sounds rude when you bring facts into it.  Anyway, in an attempt to make the challenge more interesting and to begin in a most unique fashion, a separate file has been set up in which four potential founders of each gender will go through a series of competitions to determine which lifestates will found this dynasty. 
And Pippin can't micromanage them, so he'll be forced to just observe and learn their personalities.
Pippin:  ...yeah.  Anyway, the rules are as follows:

The competition will take 3 weeks (each week ends at midnight on Saturday)
There will be 3 eliminations-lowest scorer of each gender at the end of each week
Scoring-specific to each week's challenge
The original save will be used at the beginning of each new week so no skill points will carry over

Week 1:  Music Challenge (Instruments Placed, 1 point per level of skill gained; Outings Wednesday to a nightclub and Saturday nights to a dance club, skilling will still count as usual; and each non-household Sim added to the relationship panel yields a bonus point); Instruments for Su & M, DJ booths for Tu & W, Outing W night to club w/instruments & DJ booth placed, instruments and speakers for dancing Th, F, & Sa, Outing to Dance Club Sa night

Week 2:  Athletics Challenge (a different piece of exercise equipment placed each day, 1 point per level of athletics or wellness gained; Outing to a different gym or yoga center every night, bonus points for each non-household Sim added to relationship panel)

Week 3:  Skill-a-day Challenge (Su-video gaming, M-painting, Tu-yoga, W-singing, Th-robotics, F & Sa-Parenting: 4 toddlers placed along with potty seats, toddler beds, and high chairs)

Pippin:  The challenges were laid out first, then the contestants were created with traits being randomly chosen so that unfair advantages were given as fairly as possible.
Yeah, that makes sense.  And without further ado, let's meet our contestants!



Felius:  Felius Trav, vampire, at your service.
Pippin:  Why don't you tell us what random traits you got?
Felius:  Well, I hit the jackpot!



Felius:  I'm a good music lover who is family-oriented.  I'm fully expecting to win the first week.
Pippin:  And since this dynasty will enjoy a lasting relationship with a spouse, what is your ideal type?
Felius:  B positive. It's delicious!
Pippin:  Ooooookay.  Moving on to our next gentleman.



Flangnorp:  Oh my gosh!  I have never left Sixam before!  This is so exciting!
Pippin:  So, this is Flangnorp Bebbleprop.
Flangnorp:  But it's probably all going to go badly.  I should have stayed home.
Pippin:  Well, that was a quick turnaround.  Why don't you tell us what traits you have besides gloomy?



Flangnorp:  Well, I'm a gloomy glutton who is a cat lover.  Cats are great!  They're so much better than people.  People probably will just end up not liking me, but cats are more certain.  I know they won't like me!
Pippin:  Interesting logic.  So, let's move on to our next fellow.



Voices: 
Aravin:  I don't think he needs to know that, really.
Pippin:  Umm, so...why don't you tell us about yourself.
Aravin:  Ok.  I'm a spellcaster and my name is Aravin Flummux.  I'm a neat kleptomaniac.
Voices: 
Aravin:  Well yes, people say that, but I think they're making it up.
Pippin:  Making what up?
Aravin:  That I'm erratic.  At least half of the voices agree with me that it's nonsense.
Pippin:  Oooookay.  So, why do you think you should be a founder for this dynasty?



Aravin:  I can do magic!  And I have great advisors with me at all times.
Voices: 
Aravin:  Oh, thanks!  They say I tell great stories and that's important for a parent.
Pippin:  ...moving along.  Next!



Mariner:  Hey!  I'm Mariner.  I'm a merman.  It's like a guy mermaid. 
Pippin:  And what are your traits?
Mariner:  I'm a romantic goofball child of the islands.
Pippin:  And you have a really cool ears, nose, and hair color combo.



Mariner:  Well, thanks!  That is my greatest hope in this challenge is that my kids will be cool looking.
Pippin:  And no doubt you also want to raise them well and set them up for success?
Mariner:  Oh.  I mean, that sounds like a lot of work.  I mean...yeah.  I guess we'll do that too.
Pippin:  And let's turn our attention to the ladies since they're prettier.



Pippin:  Why don't you introduce yourself and tell us about your traits?
Vaznya:  I'm Vaznya LaTeal.  I'm a gloomy ambitious art lover.  I'm...sad.  I just want friends.
Pippin:  Well, I have no doubt you'll make friends just fine.  So, why do you think you'll be the best choice for female founder in this dynasty?



Vaznya:  I probably won't.  I don't even know why Alien Command sent me.  I'm just going to lose and humiliate the alien race.  Is there a bed nearby where I can hide?  Or a paper bag I can breathe into?
Pippin:  She's delightful!  Let's meet our next contestant.



Vendara:  Umm, that's me I guess?
Pippin:  Indeed it is!  Why don't you introduce yourself?
Vendara:  I'm a cheerful loner vampire who loves the outdoors.  Of course, since I'm not sunlight resistance yet, I can only love the outdoors at night.
Pippin:  So, as a loner, why would you want to surround yourself with children?



Vendara:  Babies are so cute!!  I'm just very nurturing by nature, I guess.  But the normal vampire family idea involves turning Sims and that means talking to people and that's just not my favorite.
Pippin:  You make sense to me.  Let's meet our next contestant.



Venusia:  Venusia Aqualynne!  I'm a loner, dog lover, and perfectionist.  And I'm here to take first place!
Pippin:  Alright, so since this competition involves forming a couple, what is your ideal type?



Venusia:  Well, I expect nothing less than perfection and he has to like dogs.  Maybe not love them, but at least like them.  And faithfulness!  That's huge to me.  If you're in a relationship, you need to be committed to that person.  No nonsense on the side, if you know what I mean.
Pippin:  ...
Venusia:  Hello?
Pippin:  Oh.  Sorry.  I was just distracted by how you shoved your arms through the arms of the chair.
Venusia:  Well, sometimes I get a little overzealous, I suppose.
Pippin:  And let's bring in a new chair and our final contestant.



Gaburbna:  Gaburbna Sharmp.  Here to dominate the losers.  I'm childish, athletic, and mean, which is convenient since nice never got anyone anywhere.
Pippin:  Actually, being nice is often very...
Gaburbna:  So, you're just a Watcher, so you get to sit back and watch, and specifically, you'll get to watch me destroy the competition and send them home in tears.
Pippin:  Ummm...ok.  So, why are you a great choice for female founder of this dynasty?



Gaburbna:  I'm here to put the "nasty" back in dynasty.  I see what I want and I take it and these snotty-nosed little loser punks are not going to get in my way.
Pippin:  Ok.  Thank you?
And so, with our eight contestants in place, it's time to begin the Random Selection HMLIYW Dynasty!

Thanks!  Teaching during COVID time has definitely been a challenge, but I think I've got enough of a handle on it to be able to get in some semi-consistent Sim time  :=)

WOW, I can't wait to see who wins this lineup. Welcome back pip
Thanks!  Glad you enjoy my goofy crew  :=)

Random Selection HMLSIYW Dynasty: The Prequel, Part Two
« Reply #7 on: November 28, 2020, 10:11:49 AM »
And so the games begin.  Four males and four females enter a house with the hopes and dreams of being dynasty founders.  Only two will come out alive!



Pippin:  Whoa!  Pump the brakes!  No one's being killed!
I was being dramatic.  Thought it would make it more exciting.
Pippin:  Isn't the beginning of a new dynasty enough excitement?
Apparently not since you had to come up with this elaborate rouse to get yourself more interested in doing this dynasty.
Pippin:  Aaaaaaand anyway, let's see what's happening in the house.  Let's check the girl's side first because they're prettier.



Gaburbna:  So, looks like you three are the doormats I'll be walking over on my way to victory.
Vendara:  Big talk for a girl wearing fun buns.
Venusia:  Looks like somebody's not here to make friends.
Vaznya:  Can I call you Gabi?
Gaburbna:  Only if want a close up view of the inferniate spell!



Mariner:  Oh.  Are we all standing over there?  Is this for the group shot?  Should I not have come over here?
Felius:  Well, since there's a plumbob over my head, I'd imagine the Watcher is surely not taking a screenshot right now.
Pippin:  Stop breaking the fourth wall!
Aravin:  I'm hearing a different voice in my head than usual.
Flagnorp:  If it's a more annoying voice than usual, I hear that's the sound our Watcher makes.
Pippin:  Hey!
And for week one's challenge theme, it's music.  For our first two days, instruments are placed and we sit back to see what the contestants will do.



Flagnorp:  A TV!  Do you guys wanna watch a movie?
Mariner:  As long as it's not a rom-com.  Or drama.  And no comedy or action.
Aravin:  I actually don't care what we watch.  I just want the noise to block out the voices.
Well, this is going well.  Let's check in on the girls.



Vaznys:  Can we watch one of those great movies where the unlikely loser ends up being the hero?
Gaburbna:  Sorry, loser.  Doesn't work like that in real life.  You'll be gone by the end of the week.
Vendara:  I know I have plasma packs, but this blondie is looking really appetizing right now.
Pippin:  Alright, this is not working.  Can I make them use the instruments?
Watcher.  Simply watching for a change.
Pippin:  But all they're doing is watching TV's!
Do they need TV's?  Is that part of the challenge?
Pippin:  Oh yeah...
And after the TV's are deleted...



Violin:  sceetch screetch SCREEEEEEEEEEETCH!!
Vendara:  Oh that's...really something, Venusia.
Vaznya:  Why is Gabnurba always so mean to me?
Gabnurbna:  Because it's fun.  Duh.



Mariner:  So, I hit the wooden thing with the stick?
Felius:  Actually you...huh...I don't actually know.  Yes.  Trying hitting the wooden thing with the stick.



Pippin:  Umm, are you even going to try to win this competition?
Aravin:  Hey, these dishes aren't going to clean themselves.
Pippin:  But that would be so cool if they could!
Aravin:  Why are the voices in my head always so weird?
Pippin:  They sounds perfectly reasonable to me.
Meantime, back on the girls' side of the house...



Vendara starts racking up some points.
Vendara:  Can't let the queen of mean win.
Vaznya:  I just want to be her friend.
Vendara:  She doesn't deserve you, little blue bird.
But nothing but friendliness happening on the boys' side.



Aravin:  ...and then the moose said, "Because those aren't hat racks." Hahahahahaha!
Felius:  Oh man, that is probably funny!
Flangnorp:  ...I don't get it.
Aravin:  I don't either, actually.



Vaznya:  Oh, are you learning to play the piano now, Vendara?
Vendara:  Oh, nah.  This just looked like a really comfy place to sit.
Indeed, none of the contestants wanted anything to do with the pianos, but they sure did like those piano stools.
Pippin:  Yeah, this is a weird household.



Aravin:  What do you mean he's not one of the voices in my head?
Voices: 
Aravin:  That may be true, but I hear him.  In my head.
Voices: 
Aravin:  True, that is where my ears are, so maybe he's not just in my head...?
Pippin:  I mentioned weird, right?
Aravin:  There he is again!  You guys hear that, right?
Voices: 



Venusia:  Alright, flow like water.  Just flow like water.
Violin:  SCREEEEeeeeeEEEEeeeEEEEETCHHHHH!!!!
Venusia:  (sigh) Or drown in misery.
Vaznya:  I'm miserable.  I never get to sleep in the alien bed.
Venusia:  That's so sad, little minnow!  Where do you sleep then?



Vaznya:  Well, Vendara's always really nice, so she lets me sleep in her coffin.
Gaburbna:  That's fitting since you'll be dead by week's end.
Vaznya: Dead?
Gaburbna:  Didn't you hear the narration at the beginning?
Okay, I see my mistake now.



Mariner:  Is it just me, or did the number of violins and guitars dramatically increase?
Felius:  Well, apparently Pippin took issue with the fact that none of us will play the piano or pipe organ.
Mariner:  Piano?
Aravin:  He means the really fancy bench chair.
Mariner:  Oh that!  Yeah, that's so comfy!
And after two days of violin and guitar focus, Gaburbna was the only one still scoreless.
Gaburbna:  Oh please.  As if I can't pass the measly one point the blue kid has in five minutes' time.
And we turn our attention to...



DJ mixing and dancing.
Pippin:  And DJ mixing is ignored for a day and a half straight.



Felius:  Woot!  Dance party!
Pippin:  Yes, dancing happens just fine.
Felius, Aravin, and Mariner were in a really tight race for first in week one.



Flangnorp was in a distant fourth place.
Aravin:  Wow, it's amazing how close our scores are!
Felius:  Right?  Any one of us could win this competition.
Flangnorp:  ...there's a competition?
On the girls' side, Vendara had built a sizeable lead, but Venusia was making a strong showing at second place.



Venusia:  So, you might want to put in a little more effort, minnow.
Veznya:  K.  I'll try.
Gaburbna:  Try not.
Vendara:  ...were you gonna follow that up with, "Do or do not, there is no try?"
Gaburbna:  No.  I was just telling her not to bother trying because I'm going to beat her.
Veznya:  I'm gonna go cry in the coffin.
Gaburbna:  Fitting since we'll send you home in one!
Again, I'm so sorry.
Pippin:  And finally, it was time for their mid-week outing!  I placed a DJ booth, multiple guitars, and violins in...whatever night club this is and set them loose!



DJ Someone:  Let's get those hands up in the air, people!
Gaburbna:  Some day, you will all kneel before the evil witch queen!
L Faba:  Aww, thank you!
Gaburbna:  ...I meant me.  I'm the evil witch queen.



Lily:  You've got fangs, I am a Feng, obviously we should be friends.
Vendara:  ...that's offensive.
Lily:  Accurate.  You do have fangs.
Vendara:  True, but it's offensive when you say it.
Venusia:  Flowin' like water, baby!
And while a skill-building party was happening inside...



the aliens were enjoying nap time.
Flangnorp:  Just so tired.
Pippin:  How are you both so worn out?  You've barely developed any skills!
Veznya:  And it was exhausting!



Dominic:  Well hey there, pretty lady!
Venusia:  Icky gross married guys.  Why are all of the icky gross married guys paying attention to me?
Indeed, Backo Jang, Dominic Fyres, and Mortimer Goth all took a passing interest in our little siren.
Venusia:  I want to go home.
Pippin:  At at midnight, they did!



Felius:  Umm, guys?
Veznya:  I feel so rested now.
Aravin:  All of the voices have a different song stuck in my head now.
Gaburbna:  Guess it's time to stomp the little blue loser.  Hey, blue loser...blueser!  Somebody just got a new nickname!
Vendara:  Is it illegal to eat a competitor?
Mariner:  I guess it would depend on how you cook them.
Felius:  Seriously, does no one see this?  Hello?!?!?
And with the alien overlords doing what they can to help Flangnorp and Veznya stay in the competition, we bid farewell to this weird little household.
Felius:  HELP!!!!
And at the midway point of week one, Felius leads the boys with 7 points, Aravin has 6, Mariner is at 5, and Flangnorp has crawled his was to 3 points.
Flangnorp:  Alien Command explained to me that this is apparently a competition of some sort.
And on the girls' side, Vendara is destroying everyone with a score of 10, Venusia has a very respectable 6, Gaburbna made a late surge to pick up 3 points, and Vaznya is in last place overall with 2.
Gaburbna:  I don't need to come in first, I just need to make sure she comes in last.
Zaznya:  Yeah, that makes sense.



Felius:  Seriously!!  Someone!!!  Help!!!!

Random Selection HMLSIYW Dynasty: The Prequel, Part Three
« Reply #8 on: December 01, 2020, 04:57:58 PM »
When last we'd left our houseful of hopefuls, the aliens had fallen behind in the competition, but Flangnorp was getting some outside help.



Felius:  There's an off chance I might hold this against you.
Flangnorp:  (gulp)
Pippin:  And checking back in on our lovely ladies...



Pippin:  Gaburbna continues to build her slight lead over Vaznya.
Gaburbna:  Slight lead is still a lead.  When you're being chased by a minotaur, you don't have to outrun everyone, just one blue loser.
Pippin:  And what is the lovely blue gal doing to increase her chances of outscoring the snarky sorceress?



Vaznya:  I finally get to use my own bed!
Pippin:  Oh.  Well.  Never mind.
And back on he guys' side...



it's a violin dance party.
Flangnorp:  So we're cool, right?  You're not holding that little mishap with the abduction against me, are you?
Felius:  Not yet.
Flangnorp:  ...your patience is more terrifying than screaming would be.
Aravin:  Yeah, one of the voices is like that.



Vendara:  Alright, so the wicked witch is the worst, right?
Venusia:  Yeah, she's right up there with the married guys that hit on me.
Vendara:  ...ok.  Anyway, if you and I distract her by engaging her in conversation, maybe that will give our little blueberry a chance to catch up.
Venusia:  So, throw ourselves in front of a conversational bullet?
Vendara:  I mean...yeah...that's fair.



Aravin:  (singing) C is for Cookie.  That's good enough for me!
Mariner:  I could go for some cookies.  I'm quite hungry, now that you mention it.  You hungry, Felius? 
Felius:  I'll grab something later.
Pippin:  But Felius wasn't the only one playing the violin.



Violin:  SceeEEEEeeeEEEEEEeeEETCHH!!
Vendara:  (through gritted teeth) No, tell me again about how you're going to win this.
Gaburbna:  Well, the rest of you are nothing but doormats and wannabe's.  I'm the only queen in this castle.
Vendara:  (grits teeth)
Venusia:  (whispering) Take the bullet.  Take the bullet.
And on the boys' side, bullets are also being taken.



Pippin:  Dude!  I gave you plasma packs so you wouldn't eat the other contestants!
Felius:  Well, his abduction cost me some time in the competition, so this will cost him some time and then we're even.
Pippin:  That is not ok!
Flangnorp:  No, he's got a point.
Pippin:  (facepalm) Well, if your food's defending you, I guess...



Venusia:  Wait, why are you in here instead of distracting Gaburbna?
Vendara:  I couldn't stand the queen of mean anymore, so I came in here to clean.  But wait, why are you in here?
Venusia:  I...couldn't stand her anymore so I...came in here to clean...?
Vendara:  Then who's distracting her from learning more skills?



Gaburbna:  Come to watch me play the violin, or to watch me play the long game to victory?
Vendara:  Grrrrrrr
But eventually, we come to Saturday night.  Final night of the week and time for their last outing of the week.
Pippin:  And I made them change into their formal wear!



Felius and Vendara:  Vamps in first place, baby!
Aravin:  Oh, there are dirty dishes!



Mixologist:  Well hello there, tall, not so dark, and tidy.
Aravin:  Umm, hi?



Fangnorp:  ...but then he got even with me by drinking my plasma, so we're cool now.
Simeon:  Well.  That's really...something.



Vaznya:  ...so regardless of which one of us has to go home this week, I hope we can still stay friends.
Gaburbna:  ...why are you like this?



Joaquin:  Hey there, pretty lady!
Venusia:  Hi, you're not...married, are you?
Joaquin:  No!  Whatever gave you that idea?
Venusia:  Well, it's just that on our last outing, it was only married guys hitting on me and...
Joaquin:  I mean, my girlfriend and I have talked about it, but nothing's come of it yet.  So, can I buy you a drink?
Venusia:  Oh for the love of Watcher!



Mixologist:  So, what's your sign?
Aravin:  (to the voices) What do I say?
Voices: 
Aravin:  Really?  Ok.  (to Mixologist) My sign is yield.
Mixologist:  ...
Aravin:  ...
Mixologist:  ...
Aravin  ...
Pippin:  Well, that got awkward.  Speaking of awkward...



Candy:  So, I noticed you clearly aren't a townie and you came in with Pippin, so you must be a dynasty founder and therefore you'll probably need a spouse and I have excellent genetics that Pippin just loves and we could have beautiful babies and a glorious dynasty so you should totally pick me!
Felius:  I...
Candy:  Oh, it's Candy.  Hi.  Nice to meet you.  So how do you feel about moving my kid sis in as a helper?
Felius:  I...
Candy:  Fantastic!  I can't wait to tell her the good news!



Venusia:  Another text from Mortimer Goth asking me to come over to his place?!?!?  Why am I the married loser magnet?
Pippin:  They just can't resist your siren song, I guess.
Venusia:  If I win this, can I invite them all over and keep them in a cage?
Pippin:  That seems a bit excessive?
Venusia:  In folklore mermaids drown and or eat people.  I feel like I'm letting them off easy.
Pippin:  Noted.



But finally, we come to the end of our week and it's time to determine which male and which female will be leaving us, but not because they are dying.
Pippin:  Ah, you learned from last time.
Indeed.  First, the boys.  Felius dominated his competition with a score of 13.  Flangnorp had trailed the entire time and was still behind coming into the final outing, but scored 3 points during that outing to barely creep into a tie with Aravin for second place with a score of 8.  Sadly, with a score of 7, Mariner will be leaving us.



Mariner:  I mean, that's fine.  These guys are awesome and I would have hated to see any of them have to leave.
Pippin:  That was amazing sportsmanship, sir!
And for the ladies, Vandara came out firmly in the lead with 14, but Venusia made a very strong showing in second place with a 10.
Dominic Fyres:  That's right she's a 10!
Venusia:  I hate everything.
The battle for third was furious, and in the end, was claimed by a margin of 2 points...by Vaznya!  So, leaving us today will be Gaburbna.



Gaburbna:  WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?  How did that whiney little sniveling weakling defeat me?!?!?  I can't believe it!  I'll have my revenge!!!  You haven't heard the last from me!!!
Pippin:  And now that we've heard the last from Gaburbna, here are the stats for those of you who enjoy looking at scoring breakdowns.

Scoring:

-Flangnorp (Alien) 8-guitar 1, dancing 2, DJ mixing 1, violin 1, Outing bonus 3

It's clever! It's silliness! It's mayhem! It's not conventionally attractive, colorful Sims! This can only mean one thing and that one thing is a Pippin Dynasty. Yay!

I love your asylum challenge/Bladder Games start. :)

I will reserve my choice of favorites until the athletic trials.

Odd...I read your story last night and carefully considered which pair of sims I would ship.
Apparently, I forgot to leave my thoughts, haha.  Now, I shall copy reggikko and await the athletic trials.
*whispers: But I do have my secret favorites.... ssshhh

Don't keep us in suspense!

Thanks so much!  I actually did the weird approach to starting after trying six times but not really feeling like I knew who the founders were, so I wanted to do this to really get a feel for their personalities.  It's been really fun, actually!

Oh, quite unfair!  I'm really excited to know who is developing fan clubs  :=)
Clever, silliness, mayhem, and unconventionally attractive Sims.  I think you just summarized my entire career as a Simmer :=)

Psh, as if I would ever keep people in suspense.  Ok, yeah, actually I would  ;=)  Luckily for you, though, I'm about to post the first half of week two now...so feel free to share those favorites you're shipping any time  ;=)

I so appreciate the feedback and encouragement and I'm so glad that people are enjoying my unconventional start to this dynasty!

Random Selection HMLSIYW Dynasty: The Prequel, Part Four
« Reply #13 on: December 03, 2020, 07:57:59 AM »
And with one contestant of each gender eliminated, we move into week two:  athletics.



Vaznya:  I didn't die!
Venusia: And despite Vendara's wishes to the contrary, neither did Gaburbna.
Vendara:  ...not yet.
Pippin:  And a treadmill is placed for each contestant leading to...



Pippin:  random conversation time.
Felius: So, we aren't going to have a repeat of the flying saucer incident this week, right?
Flangnorp:  As long as we don't have a repeat of the plasma incident.
Voices:   
Aravin:  I know, right?
And on the girls' side of the house...



Vaznya:  I'm so sad.  Just need to hide.
our gloomy alien continues to avoid the treadmill.
Pippin:  And that night, it's an outing to a gym.



Vendara:  Wait, there are people in there.  Are we sure we want to go in there?



Aravin:  Take that!
Voices: 
Aravin:  I also didn't know these things could dodge!



Venusia:  No one's up here but me so no creeper married guys can come hit on me.  Just gonna dribble this basketball right here all night.



Vendara:  Lobby's fine.  Just gonna play games on my phone.  Don't need to talk to people.



Flangnorp:  Ow.  I think I just broke some fingers.  They were mine.  I think I broke my fingers.
And the group heads home for yoga mat day.



Aravin:  Falling.  Falling with focus.  I am one with the floor.
Pippin:  That's the spirit, Aravin.
Aravin:  AH!  That voice is back!!
Voices: 
Aravin:  You're right.  Calm, focused breathing and maybe it will go away.
Pippin:  I am not pleased.  Let's check in on the girls.



Pippin:  Oh, what yoga pose is that, Vendara?
Vendara:  Oh, I'm just waiting for Vaznya to come get her hug.
Vaznya:  I'm so sad.  I need a hug.
Pippin:  If you win this, you'll be such a good mom.
Vaznya:  Thank you.
Pippin:  I meant Vendara...
Vaznya:  (crying)
Vendara:  Nice work, Pippin.
Pippin:  I can't win.



Pippin:  So...yoga pose?
Felius:  I just tripped on this weird rug.
And we come to the evening's outing.



Felius:  Alright.  Time to go to the yoga house.
Venusia:  Please no married creepers.  Please no married creepers.



Venusia:  So, like this?
Vaznya:  I got it.  DON"T GOT IT!  FALLING!
Yoga Instructor:  Umm, I'm not actually teaching a class right now.
Pippin:  Umm, Aravin, are you just sleeping?



Aravin:  The other voices said this is a legitimate yoga pose.
Pippin:  ...ok...?



Felius:  Hi there!  I notice you're famous.  I'm also famous, but in more of a no-one-knows-who-I-am way.
Celebrity:  ...please stop talking to me.



Mixologist:  Umm, can I help you with something?
Vaznya:  Sure, could you get me some cucumbers to go in this salad?
Mixologist:  ...you realize this is my food and drink prep area, right?
Vaznya:  Right, so you should know where the cucumbers are.
Mixologist:  ...that's pretty solid logic.  I'll get you those cucumbers.
And the group returns home for a day with punching bags.



Felius:  So, was anyone planning to actually use the punching bags?
Flangnorp:  I broke my fingers last time.
Aravin:  They dodge.  It makes me look silly.
Pippin:  But surely the girls will be using the punching bags.



Venusia:  Two whole outings in a row with no married creepers!
Vaznya:  That's great, but if you win this, won't your husband just be a married creeper who hangs out with you.
Venusia:  Well...I mean...it's different because...it won't be...the same...
Vendara:  That sounds really convincing.
Venusia:  Dang it!
But it ends up being a single gentleman caller who comes after our little siren.



Pippin:  Seriously?  The door's locked!  You can't even get to her!
Vlad:  But she's so lovely!
Venusia  Must...hang out... and eat cereal...



Vaznya:  Your head's all sparkly!
Venusia:  Must...thank...alien girl...
Pippin:  And it comes time for our evening's outing.



Flangnorp:  What gym is this?
Pippin:  It's...some gym...that was premade...and I placed it...
Vendara:  Ok, that's enough talking time, Pippin.  Let's go in the gym, people.



Felius:  I notice you're famous.  I happen to also know someone else who is famous.  She sent me a letter.
Kayla Flemming:  Was it a restraining order?
Felius:  ...maybe.



Flangnorp:  Who's got a face?  You've got a face!
Pippin:  What are you doing?
Flangnorp:  Positive affirmation.
Pippin:  How is this positive affirmation?
Flangnorp:  I'm positive I have a face.  I'm affirming that I have a face.
Pippin:  ...and over at the pool...



Venusia:  I'm a mermaid!!
Vaznya:  I'm not!
Pippin:  Ok, and in the steam room...



Vendara:  Maybe you could not creep this one out?
Felius:  ...fine.

And with that, we come to the end of Wednesday's outing and reach the halfway point of the week.  The score at this point is very close with Felius leading the guys with 7 while Aravin and Flangnorp are both tied with 5.  Meantime, Vendara leads the gals with 7, but Vaznya is close behind at 6 while Venusia is close behind with 5.
Vendara:  Vamps for the win!
Pippin:  Indeed, both vamps are leading for the second week in a row, but not by nearly as much as last week.  For those interested in such things, here's the midway scoreboard.

Scores:
Gentlemen:
-Flangnorp (Alien) 5-fitness 3, wellness 1, Outing bonus 1
-Aravin (Spellcaster) 5-fitness 3, wellness 1, Outing bonus 1
-Felius (Vampire) 7-fitness 3, wellness 1, Outing bonus 4
Ladies:
-Vaznya (Alien) 6-fitness 3,wellness 1, Outing bonus 2
-Vendara (Vampire) 7-fitness 3, wellness 1, Outing bonus 3

I've been enjoying this. When Sims just do what they want, it's sometimes entertaining, sometimes frustrating.
