Round 3, Lot 9 - Broke (2)

All who live here - Dustin Broke, Fortune - LTW Become Hand Of Poseidon. Angela Broke, Popularity - Become a Media Magnate. Anna - Grow Up

First wishes:

Dustin - Meet someone new, entertain, play with, invite someone over, be friends with Leo (Wilkie) and top Nature Hobby. First wish fulfilled - *play with* Anna

Angela - Reach TOC, gain a skill point, be BFF with Tyson Ebadi (Brandi *Broke* Ebadi's husband), play with, meet someone new, and Nichole *Dreamer* gets abducted by aliens. heh @ that last one.

Anna - Learn nursery rhyme, get charisma skill, creativity skill, and logic skill. First wish fulfilled - Get creativity point.

Monday - Love starting off a round with a **BANG**!!!! Good for you Angela, and I especially love promotions that are gotten through string pulling. Angela was still short two points for this promotion. Thanks, for that, Jan!!!! Her new LTW is to become City Planner. In the mean while, Dustin's second preferred field came up for him, Oceanography. He starts out as Protector of Whales.

Tuesday - **BAM BAM**!!! There you go. heh Dustin's next (and 3rd) LTW? Own 5 Top Level Businesses. And you will notice in this picture, Angela has just gotten her gold in gardening. :)

Dustin decides to go for 5 top Level businesses. He has purchased Pleasantview Pets. While he is here, all his thoughts surround the business. Customer gets another star. Have a #level business. Show an item to so and so. These are easy. Being that he is nearly maxed on skills, he worked up to gold level badge in sales on level two of his business.

Dustin has been selling everything at 'ridiculously expensive' so he could run the store by himself. Incredibly, Sims are buying. Here Dustin uses 'dazzle' sales technique on Alexander for this dog house. It costs $4048. Come on Alexander, you can afford it. You need it, you have to raise 20 kittens.

He keeps rolling wishes to do things with Nichole Dreamer. Urg....*aggravated* She has only come in to shop a couple of times, waddling her huge belly all over the place. Here he wants to hire her, and use the'sell social' on her. This is tough, because she isn't even on the lot!

On the cusp of business advancement to level 9, Dustin finally decides to hire someone. He hires Jihoon Hsu. He has a bronze in robotics and a silver in restocking. Upon Jihoon gainging his first assignment, Dustin rolls to fire him, and hire Nichole. GAWD. Dustin has a fixation on Nichole!

The store has reached level 9, and Dustin is having crazy thoughts about Jihoon. He wants to promote him and fire him at the same time. heh Dustin has also hired Coral (Oldie) Wilkie's old flame, Bruce Rauscher. Bruce has a silver in robotics, and a bronze in restocking. (Plus Dustin is looking for a gold in restocking himself).

Dustin takes a chance on this lady, Caryl Knight. AKA The Diva. She lost her eyebrows and makeup when she slipped into her work uniform. hehe She came with zero badges, but she was high in Charisma, so Dustin is letting her run the register. He now has Bruce busy building robots, Jihoon is now controllable as manager and he is wishing for a silver sales badge. It seems like it is taking forever to run this business up to level 10. *sigh* Dustin is making a run for his gold in restocking.

On Thursday Dustin finally runs the pet shop up to level 10 3 times. Yeah, I tend to take the short cut on this LTW. He needs two more memories of a top business. He goes home, with two business related wishes locked, and spins up wishes for his buddy Dirk Dreamer's wife, Nichole. Uh-huh. He wants to invite her over, appreciate her, and play with her. That almost sounds errr.....well. You get the idea. Luckily it is 4:45 in the morning, and he won't be inviting anyone over for a few hours.

Here it is Saturday afternoon. Dustin rolled wishes to make friends with Caryl Knight and wanted to invite Nichole over. So he makes friends with his employee Caryl via phone, then wanted to 'play' with her. Over she comes. Over and over, play, tell jokes, admire. Finally enough is enough and Dustin says goodbye. Then he rolls wishes for Nichole. Okay, I give in. Over she comes. Play, tell jokes, admire. However, she rejected his admire/rub shoulders social, and he immediately wants a love potion. What the heck? Is he bored with Angela? She has been boring this round. Wants nothing but to go hiking, skill, and win gaming competitions. Erm. Me thinks Dustin is developing roving eyes.

All day long Sunday Dustin spent fulfilling nature type wishes. (His one true hobby). Bird watch, catch bugs, ect. He worked the garden, watered the flowers, even kissed Angela a couple of times. Then the phone rings. Uh-huh. It is his employee, Caryl, asking him out downtown. Of course, Dustin couldn't resist. They decide to go bowling, and as soon as they pile out of the cab, Dustin spins up slow dance with Sim, and play with Caryl. hehehe

He can't resist her feminine wiles. He spins up Ask Sim Out On Date. huh. He figures why not, he has two bolts with Caryl.

Dustin had a dream date with his employee, Caryl Knight. I wonder what she thinks she is going to get out of this relationship???

In the meantime Dustin and Angela's daughter Anna has grown to child, and made this townie girl Frances Barrett her BFF. They play together almost every day. Frances fulfills lots of wishes for Anna.

And this is where we leave the Brokes for this round.


Dustin - No summary needed, really. Dustin quit his job as Hand of Poseidon, and decided to pursue 5 Top Level Businesses. Rolled business type wishes when in his store, but otherwise continually lusted after Nichole Dreamer and Caryl Knight. My playing style usually is not to let my Simmies indulge in roving desires, but playing wishes, I had to do it, and found it to be fun. =^^=. Dustin did gain a gold badges in sales and cashiering.

Angela - Pretty dry this round. Dustin stole the show. She spun up continual Nature type wishes, only rolled 'have a party once' which she immediately did. She started on the Pop Sim impossible want of having 20/30 best friends. Huh, I guess she could just go to the wishing well and wish them up, but she already had a large address book of friends, so decided to do it the old fashioned way.

Anna - A delightful child, even though she didn't get much screen time in this update. She really likes her friend Frances, and I am considering letting Frances grow up with her at the teen aging up. Anna wanted to spend lots of time with her, but would spin up occasionally to do things with mom and dad, and to gain some skill points.

And that is it this week for the Brokes!



  1. Wow what a great round for Dustin, some exciting stuff. I bet he wanted to hire and fire Jihoon because you wouldn't let him hire Nicole! :D

  2. Hire him! No, fire him! I just need to talk to Nichole about this. Pleeeeeeeease!

    1. LOLOL you are right about that! He couldn't make up his mind!!!

  3. Of course Frances should be allowed to grow up with Anna. She could be a good wife to one of all your boys and a lifelong friend to Anna!

  4. Wow Dustin was quite an interesting character. I want Nicole, find I want Jihoon, what??? I was just kidding, I don't want him, I want Nicole!! Crazy boy. Can't wait to see what happens with all this.
