Sarah Love: Week 2

- - - Update 27.1.2013 - - - Good morning, Sarah! Sarah's 2nd week in New Maximiliania sees her waking up, still wearing all her new jewellery and make-up. Not the best thing to do to your skin, girl.
Blacky, her little wombrat, is still her only permanent companian, and she makes sure to take care of Blacky very well.
Monday is rent day, and Sarah duly puts her envelope into the extra mail box outside the apartment building.
Her feelings for the janitor have not changed - nor has my resolution of NOT letting that happen. I'd think about it if they were 3-bolters, but they are not.
Sarah does not want to start this week as lonely as the previous one ended, and since it is Christmas, she bakes a batch of cookies and invites over five of the girls she studied with.
Of course, the result is the inevitable traffic jam in the bathroom - only when the party officially ends is Sarah finally able to leave the room and go to bed.
Tuesday is her lucky day: she finally finds a job in her dream career and can start today as a SWAT Team Leader.
Before she goes, she makes sure to play with Blacky and leave enough food in the cage.
Then, a proud Sarah dons her new uniform and heads for her carpool.
On Wednesday morning, she almost misses the carpool; I think she was held up by the janitor who wanted to chat.
She spends the evening using her new fingerprint scanner to gain some cleaning skills necessary for a promotion - but only after she has played with Blacky, rung a friend and had a bath.
Thursday goes by pretty much like Wednesday. On Friday, spring is noticeable in the air, and Sarah puts on a different outfit. She still has not found a man I allow her to love, and I must admit she does look a bit worried today.
But she returns from work with a promotion to Police Chief - I think that's the last step before she'll reach her LTW of becoming Captain Hero. This is her, leaving for work on Saturday morning in her new uniform.
Sunday is her day off, and she starts it by putting on something nice and playing with Blacky.
It's a perfect day for the park, and Sarah calls a taxi to take her there.
On her own accord, the tips the Human Statue four or five times in a row! (In real life, I can't stand them and would NEVER give them any money.)
Several other New Maximilianians are enjoying a round of Mishuno, lead by a townie: Opal Contrary, Brittany Upsnott, Lisa Ramirez, William Williamson and Wanda Tinker.
Thanks to an infallibly good witch, the day is made even nicer.
Sarah and Brittany sit down together for a hot dog in the afternoon.
The townie who was leading the Mishuno is blonde... maybe he's a good cook, too? Sarah seems to like him, but once again, I am not making an exception of my rule, because she does not have 3 bolts for him.
When the sun sets over the park, Sarah decides she wants to go dancing, and has a taxi take her to the P.U.R.E.
Along with two townie-ladies and Klara Williamson (nee Vonderstein), she spends an hour on the dance floor.
Who would have expected such moves from uptight-looking Klara? :-)
Oh! He's blonde, isn't he, and I seem to remember he's a pretty good cook, too... Sarah greets Malcolm Landgraab, but finds out she has only one bolt for him.
The week was successful job-wise, but when it comes to love, Sarah Love is still as lonely as before. Sunday night ends with her preparing pork chops just for herself (is she really going to eat FOUR?). 

How long until her next promotion? And where is that elusive three-bolt-man for her?


  1. Well Sarah has got started in life and is doing well with her job. Perhaps you could have the matchmaker do some matchmaking to get her a 3 bolt love? Shame about her landlord, he looks like a nice guy. :)

    1. The matchmaker always only brings townies in my game, which is a shame - otherwise, she would have come in handy many times!

  2. When I make pork chops, I always make 8, and it is just me and my husband here. That way, I do not have to cook every day. :)

    1. (Also, that way I only have to mop up the grease that gets all over my kitchen once, instead of twice or more.)

    2. He he, of course you're right about both reasons! I just don't eat that much meat myself (I'm not a vegetarian, though) and hardly ever cook for myself anyway; when it's just me, lunch / dinner mostly consists of a cheese sandwich or some salad. I like to cook nice meals when my boyfriend is here, though :-)

  3. With all the porkchops - maybe Sarah brings a packed lunch to work and reheat it there? :)
    Poor Sarah, no mercy from the SimGodess to let her have the janitor. Maybe they can be in a casual relationship without him moving in? Then she at least can have some action! :)

    1. I can be rather cold with my Sims sometimes, sorry! :-)

  4. Poor Sara love for her. Harsh with the 3-bolt attraction. So, I have gathered from your posts that if the couple starts together you might or might not have them stay together regardless of bolts, but if they were younger or not in a relationship then you require 3-bolts, or is it only 3-bolts if it's not an inhabitant? Just curious.

    1. I do not have a rule set in stone about that, but if they roll wishes for each other after college, I fulfill them. Otherwise I try to bring couples together if they have the same LTW and can profit from being together, such as two Sims wishing for 6 grandchildren, or marrying off 3 children, or celebrating their Golden Anniversary, or raising 20 puppies/kittens.
      3-bolt-attractions are always hard to resist, though!

    2. Oh, ok that makes sense. 3-bolts are hard to resist I agree. Thanks for explaining, I could see having couples that can both benefit for their LTW's to be together making a lot of sense.


Whether you play The Sims 2 yourself or not, it would be great hearing from you. As I will reply to comments regularly, please remember to come back if you have asked a question.
