When I got up in the morning, I found that the kitchen was starting to smell disgusting! Why doesn’t anyone clean around here?
I had my breakfast in the living room, since the kitchen was so gross.
When I got to work, Rick Lugosi seemed to be really depressed.
My boring mortal coworker whose name I haven’t bothered to learn told me that his girlfriend dumped him.
Vampires like to get all mopey and brooding, so I figured I’d just leave him to it.
I finally got to try out the fireman’s pole!
Which was very important because mortal girl was telling a ghost story.
She tells a good story. Maybe she’s not quite so boring after all. It’s not like she can help being mortal.
Then something awful occurred to me!
I’d forgotten to feed the kitties! I sneaked out of the station and rushed home on my bicycle.
Wow, it’s really gotten awful in here! Nobody ever cleans up anything, and the sofa is shredded.
Even Dinah gave herself a nasty cold shower!
Well, I gave them their food. I’m so sorry poor Dinah had to wait and get hungry!
When I got back, it didn’t look like anyone had noticed I was gone.
William dropped by to show off his fangs. They’re such attractive fangs, but I do wonder how one can clean them properly.
I was so tired after the mad dash home and back that I headed upstairs to take a nap. William and Chris seemed to be having a heated conversation. William really loved a book by some guy named Shakespeare, and Chris hated it. Men.
I didn’t let their little spat get in the way of my sleep!
I woke up later to the sound of William yelling at his video game. Apparently he really gets into Grand Theft Auto. But he should watch his language!
I dreamed about Hetal, and I couldn’t wait until I was off duty to try to see her again. I called her from the station to see if she might be interested in dropping by just to hang out.
I was so surprised and happy when she agreed! I came outside to find her swearing at the side of the garage. She seemed to think there was supposed to be a door there.
I found her, and we had a lovely chat about the weather. She really loves dark rainy days.
I prefer sunny days. They just make you feel so cheerful!
We kept chatting until I got off duty. Then I worked up my courage to ask her to go do something after work. That’s it! We could take a tour of the arboretum!
The arboretum glows beautifully at night. We had a great time looking at all the plants.
When we finished, I was really hungry.
I didn’t want our time together to end, so I asked her to go out to the diner with me. My treat!
I didn’t think that through very well. Our meal wiped out the rest of my paycheck. I almost had to do dishes to pay off the bill. It might have been better if Hetal hadn’t ordered the Lobster Thermidore, which was the most expensive thing on the menu, but how could I deny her anything?
Hetal seemed to think the whole thing was a pretty good time. I’m so glad.
She asked me what I thought about living a life of crime. I told her I’d never thought about it, but maybe it would be okay if it involved a lot of fire.
It was getting so late. I finally forced myself to say goodbye. I told Hetal I really hoped to see her again soon. She said she’d be glad to go out with me if I paid for some more meals.
I left her on the sidewalk doing her homework.
And I headed home in the dark, thinking about her.
When I got home, I’d finally had it with the place being a pit. Somebody had to clean things up around here, and since nobody else was doing it, I’d just have to do it myself.
I was lucky to see another kitty drop by!
She was so cute.
Oh, and THIS was why the whole kitchen smelled so bad. I never cleaned up the horrible burned mac’n’cheese from last week. Whoops.
I took care of that.
And I got a bit of quality time in with Cheshire. It was getting really late, but I had missed him all day.
Then I remembered I would be able to sleep in tomorrow because it was Leisure Day! Yay!
Well, this gets me caught back up. Not having to think of a plot or track more than one character certainly makes posts faster to write! It’s also easy to fall into the one-post-per-day rhythm. I still have a goal of getting through an entire pregnancy in one post. We’ll see how that goes 🙂 :).
You’ll notice that William is suddenly paler. It turns out he wasn’t actually a vampire after all. Now I’m kind of disappointed with his skintone. He was so much sexier before he was a vampire. Hmmmm.
I really had forgotten just how much it costs for two people to eat at the diner when you’re still on starting funds. That meal wiped her out. Whoops. Though the Samples have been so rich for so long that I’m kind of enjoying having to think about money. I think I am going to add a new handicap to my game: I cannot buy No Bills Ever.
And a little cameo from Sim!Mist. That was cute. I wonder if she’ll still be around to breed to Cheshire and Dinah’s heir. Hmmmm. She is pretty interesting looking for a sim cat. I downloaded somebody’s tortoiseshell marking pattern and dialed back the colors to get a dilute tortie, which is what Mist is.
I’m not terribly impressed with Moonlight Falls’ diner rabbithole. I’ve always liked the Bistro better anyway. I downloaded a bistro recolor that I’m going to place someplace in town.
