Strangely Pleasant: Strangetown (Round 3.2)  
Kicking off this update is the Loste family. Technically this should be the Cox family (Kennedy Cox being the pater familias), but I'm going with Kristen wanting to keep her last name and Kennedy changing his instead. They are yet another Fortune/Fortune pairing (what is WITH these in Strangetown? I'm going to have to mix up my pairings a bit for the sake of variety.)

The week started with a happy occasion, as Kristen gave birth to a little girl, Ingrid.

Thanks for showing some interest in the proceedings, Kennedy.

Strangely Pleasant: Pleasantview (Round 3.2)  
Kicking off this update is the Pleasant family. Coral Oldie decided to go and live with her daughter after her husband, Herb, died. She immediately rolled wants to get a job, and I figured she wouldn't do too badly as a Playground Monitor.

Here she is digging through the job ads in the paper. Unfortunately, no opening in the Education career available today.

Strangely Pleasant: University (Round 3)  
Smallish update, because I don't get to take that many pictures while playing my Sims through college. I'm still experimenting on how to take on University in my 'hoods, both time-wise, rotation-wise and household wise. I really, really dislike playing University. I'm not entirely sure why, but there you go. So in order to cut down the time I have to spend there, I have lumped every single young adult together in one big household, and played that.
Johnny, Ophelia and Tank are starting their Junior years (I think? Third year of University, at any rate), and are joined by Angela and Lilith Pleasant, Ripp Grunt, Dustin Broke, Dirk Dreamer and Jill Smith, who are starting out as freshmen. That's 9 sims in total, which was just about as hectic as it sounds.
I'm not sure if I'll keep playing everyone together in one dorm, even if it is handy to figure out relationships for the further life of my Sims.

And those relationships DO need figuring out. Especially in the case of Ms. Angela Pleasant, here seen smooching her childhood sweetheart, Dustin.
