Senior High Cycle 2: Out of This World - A4 Pic + Scores

This makes me so happy on so many levels! Even though I was happy with the final results of this pic, I was so not expecting 1st. :D

As usual, the story is after the jump. Forgive me for all the typos in it. I rushed it. >_<

Hot or Not Cycle 4: A9 pic and scores

Note: The pic has been censored since it kind of too racy and blogger might get upset about it.

I'm not surprise, so I'm not too broken up about it. It was last literally last min. I didn't know it due the same day as Senior High, so I did it the same day it was due while not really feeling all that well. I didn't pre-plan it either, so it just ended up being a mess. :( Meh my time was coming anyway.

True Blood Finale- Am I the only one who found it disappointing?

Yeah if you haven't heard, I binged watch True Blood and I got caught up enough to watch the final season.
I loved TB at the beginning. I loved Bill and Sookie. I learned to love Erick and he became my favorite vamp in the show. Then Season 5 came around and I began to hate it! The whole authority Lilith crap was HORRIBLE!!! Everything after that was horrible. I began watching it solely for Erick and Pam while cringing. Still I had hope for it. Now the finale.....

Major spoilers ahead.....

Healthcare. It pisses me off!

I didn't feel like having two post about this, so I'm reposing the original and giving you an update since I owe you one.

Original Post: No, Roxie is fine and in the clear now again. No, this time it's my dad. He's going be having surgery tomorrow on his eyes. Well his eye lids to be more specific and maybe one other thing in regard to his eyes. I won't go into details, but he's going probably need help getting around and such. So I'll be helping out as usual. I went through something like this before with my grandmother, so it shouldn't be too bad I guess. They said he should recover quickly, so maybe it won't be too horrible. Please send your good vibes and such over this way though.

So this is just a warning in case I'm not around as much. He took 2 weeks off from work, so hopefully by 2 weeks he's ok and seeing properly.

*sigh* Still this whole thing has us nervous. Hopefully things go smoothly!

Update: Well I woke up this morning worried sick and nervous about my dad surgery, but he came in looking just like he did this morning. So I was like "WTF". Turns out his job insurance is based in South Carolina and they didn't want to "authorize" the freaking surgery. I don't know why the freaking doctors couldn't have found this out beforehand, but they told him they couldn't do the surgery today due to that and they would have to reschedule for September 28th while they get everything straightened out. So my dad and grandmother waited for hours for nothing. Plus he's off for two weeks for nothing and he's going have to probably ask his job again for time off, which is going be lovely since the people at his job are a-holes. *sigh*

Well he's off for two weeks. I guess we can go to the state fair now and do crap while the summer is still here. He can see enough to do that. With the surgery it would of been more improved, but it obviously wasn't meant for now. Oh well.

Apologies for making you worried. Healthcare is so f'd up over here. It makes no freaking sense!

The legacy/diary of Henry Edgars: Nicolas ages up into an un-awkward teen?

The forums has been quite entertaining and horrifying today, but I have a legacy update to post!

I was wrong about Daniel's bday. Nicolas bday is first and then Daniel is the day after. Anyway, sorry it's been awhile. I finally finding time and enthusiasm to play this save again. Last time we left off we had our little toddler princess, Katherine. She's is doing well since aging up. Nic meanwhile has been a great and horrible little big brother. You'll see why.
 Also stay tune for Nic's teen transformation.

Goodbye TS3 forums *sniffles*

The new forums is officially the new officials. While the new forums is growing on me slowly, it makes me kind of sad the TS3 one is gone. We'll miss you old friend. 
Had to do it! I swear this is so perfect for TS4. lol

The TS4 CAS Demo is available for everyone!

The CAS demo is available on Origin under Free Games > Demo and Betas. I played around with a little and made....

My TS4 simself:
Well my rl self without the pink hair. lol My Dad said it looks like me, so I didn't do half bad I guess. Took me only a few mins. Hmmm...I might lower the eyebrows. Mines is lower on my eyes. Anyway...

What do I think about the CAS demo? I think it's kinda cool. I like that you can overwrite when saving the sim. I like that everything is sorted out in all kinds of different sections. I like that it has a search bar, which will come in handy for those purchasing the game. I like that hats are separate from hair. I also like the push and pull features somewhat. 

The push and pull things were not as smooth and easy as I hoped. It was quite difficult and really annoying actually. I had a hard time getting my mouth and jaw right along with other things, because there wasn't really defined set points for the pulling/pushing. It was also oddly easy to mess up with that feature as well, because I turned around to talk to my Dad and the mouse moved totally messing up my jaw. So then I had to do it all over again. The undo button didn't work very well. Overall, it needs to be smoother and they should add sliders for when pulling/pushing isn't giving the desire effect the player wants. 

The things I of course didn't like was the dumb walking styles. I mean they're cute I guess in silly sort of way, but did we really need those? The hair is fitting for the art style, but it's still lego-ish to me. Then of course the absent of CASt couldn't be ignored. *sigh* A simple color wheel would of been nice. 

TBH I would consider buying the game if my decision was solely based on CAS, but it's obvious this and some of build mode is the only thing worth buying about this game. I still won't be buying it. At less they have some amazing surprise they're holding out on, the game still isn't worth it!

P.S. You can't take pics in the demo with the C button like TS3, so you're going either need to use prnt screen and copy/paste it in paint or Fraps (like I used just now for the 1st time).

Now we have 2 sites? Who knows! The NEW Official Sims Forums....

The sims 3 forums is still "read only", but a new site has appeared to be the new officials: 
You going have to login on your origin account to see it, which it just f'ing lovely and stupid.

I hate this site already. I want to punch and torture the sims 4 sims on the banner. Then I want to slap and kick the person who decided this was a good idea. Yeah I'm feeling quite violent tonight. I was in a fantastic mood till I saw this crap (and the news about Robin Williams -R.I.P).

The Sims 3 forum has been squeezed on there, so no worries TS3 fans. I just find it all quite pointless. Like I said on that dumb butt forums,  "What a waste of freaking time this site is! I swear they'll find anything stupid to do rather than fix all the glitches in Sims 3. The site was fine like it was. If anything, they should reactivate and save us from logging on this hideous site!"

I still stand by that statement. I hope The Sims 3 officials aren't being abandon and if so, I hope they take the time to announce the changes. I wouldn't even knew it existed if it wasn't for other simmers telling me. Somebody also needs to fix the link on homepage forum tab, because it leads right back to the original forums. Fail!

Also great job letting the trolls back on with their banned accounts! Fantastic! You're just so fantastic at failling it's amazing!

Now for my own personal nightmare and anger about this. My competition has been transferred to the new site, which is fine. Just be nice if my contestants knew where this crap is! I swear if they don't give any indication on the original site of this existing, I'm going to go insane! If you're in my comp please check in if you can!

I'm going have to figure out how to resize the pics that are not longer showing it seems in that thread. Gawd I'm about had it with EA and this Sims 4 s***.  They are driving me crazy! Aghhhhhh!
