bintie's sims journal

For those with infinite free time: The entire Wishkabibble saga in one handy tagged livejournal lump: Wishkabibble
A summary of all ten generations: PhotoSummary
A group shot of the whole damn bunch (at least, the ones still alive as of the last generation): The gang's all here (and it wasn't easy to get them all to stand still for the picture!)
UgCommentary: I think I peaked around Gen. 5 or 6. It is really hard to maintain ugly for a long time! And it saddened me that the females didn't express their ug as severely as the men. Curse Maxis and their "women should be soft and pretty" bias! My original goal was lips and jowls, which I got by the boatload. Unfortunately, I tried branching out into new territory, and the jowls vanished instantly, leaving me with razor-sharp cheekbones instead. Bobble was my favorite heir, and I kept a clone of him for future amusement.
My favorite breeding material: definitely Chris Bertino/Carmen Platz/Alvin Gast. One face, two genders, three generations, lots of lip and jaw action!
LegacyCommentary: Getting rid of the graves was the BEST thing I ever did. Oh, those ghosts pissed me off! "I'm tired! I'm wet! You moved my bed!" Whine whine whine.
And finally, a bonus picture of offspring of The Therapist and Calista the Gardener, as a teenager: Baby Doc
Not an Ish by blood, but still worthy of the name.

I composed the intro to this post in my head a dozen times over the last week, each version more witty and poignant than the last, and now that I'm sitting here at the keyboard my mind is a complete blank. Typical.

08:35 pm - Wishkabibble update: Gens. 8 and 9
Watch and be amazed as my addictive and avoidant personality disorders interact and cause me to play Ishes round the clock while nothing else gets done! I think I'll give my Nightlife disks to my husband to hide once Gen. 10 is done. You think I'm kidding!?

Didn't realize I had enough for an update! Woo!
The Sim teen years take So Freaking Long to get through. I'm always tempted to start the game and just go to work, and hope some of them are adults by the time I get home.
