The Pleasant-Summerdream Household: Week 7

Week 6 is here

It's not that long ago since we've been at the Pleasant Hacienda, but because I am now at Puck Summerdream's place on the alphabetical list, we are back at this household. There are still Angela and Puck living here, plus several cats and dogs. Angela has been on PermaPlat for quite some time now, and I rarely control her. Puck, on the other hand, possibly will never reach that stage: having 20 best pet friends at the same time is one of the most difficult LTWs in my opinion.

There he is, with Pepper, one of the dogs he has adopted in order to maintain their friendship easier.

The cleanbot (this one was still made by Mary-Sue Pleasant before she died) breaks, and it takes Angela some time to turn it off and repair it. Not the best start into the new week, is it!

Puck adopts Scout, all for the sake of his LTW.

There are already two fully furnished bedrooms with double beds here, and so finally, the bedroom that used to be Angela's during her teenage years is turned into a pet room with two beds, a scratch post, food bowl and chewing bone. There are more pet items dotted around the hacienda, so that all dogs and cats can find a place to rest and enough to eat etc. anytime.

On Tuesday, Puck adopts a stray cat named Alabama.

The MunchieBot brings pizza... into the bathroom!

Still on Tuesday, his cat Pepper becomes Puck's best friend.

When Angela has nothing else to do, strangely enough she often prefers to workout rather than to watch TV, play on the computer or with one of the pets.

Alegra is the name of this stray dog who becomes Puck's friend (not best friend) before the day is over.

Wednesday morning sees Angela having a "healthy" breakfast of Chinese takeaway. That seems to be the only two dishes the MunchieBot brings: Pizza or Chinese.

The first time I see a SentryBot in action! I was a few seconds too late for the picture, otherwise you could have seen properly how the bot zaps this townie for having kicked over the trash bin. Look at the postman in the back!

Poor Puck is forever doing the rounds of cleaning up behind his pets, feeding them, washing the dogs and so on.

Balin, another stray cat, becomes his friend that evening.

A cat fight breaks out between Alabama and Sake.

Alabama wins. Good job Sake's relationship to Puck, Angela and all the other pets is so good, otherwise maybe he would have left.

It is Thursday, and yet another stray pet named Bailey becomes Puck's friend.

On Friday, Angela and Puck have breakfast together for the first time this week.

Later, this small stray dog called Grace is greeted and befriended by Puck.

Angela invites her twin sister Lilith over, plus Lilith's family. She has recently married David Ottomas and brings along her sister-in-law Sharla as well as parents-in-law Samantha and Peter.

Looks like Peter and David are reflecting on how very much alike Angela and Lilith look.

On Saturday, the cleanbot breaks again.

Puck does not have time to help with the cleaning up; he is busy befriending Moonshine.

In the evening, he invites his family over. The Summerdreams bring Cyan along; he was Puck's first dog, and the two of them renew their friendship.

As a PermaPlat Sim, actually Angela should not be controlled by me anymore. But I have decided I want to keep her making robots, which she does all week long, and every time she meets and greets a neighbour, they are given one or two robots from her inventory. That evening, she finally gets her Gold Badge!
Meanwhile, Titania and her son enjoy the umpteenth box of Chinese takeaway.

On Sunday, the stray dog Bailey becomes Puck's best friend. He now has 9 best pet friends.

Because Angela is always busy making robots and Puck can't afford to lose any possibility of making another pet friend, finally the couple decide to hire a maid.

Angela has been working almost non-stop on her first Servo - it is not only her first, but also the very first one in all of New Maximiliania!

Pleasant Servo (that's his name) is activated before the week is over. He has the Popularity Aspiration and dreams of becoming Mayor. I am surprised to find that he already has the Gold Badge for Flower Arranging. His skill profile is very impressive, too.

While Angela and Puck finally go to bed, Pleasant Servo starts on the many chores. Will there be other Servos? How is Puck going to get on with his LTW next round? Will he and Angela get married some day?


  1. I love the sentry bot- great in college to keep the annoying cow mascot away, :D
    Pleasant Servo is a welcome addition to the 'hood- they usually get the same personality and skills from whoever activates them as well as random badges.
    Looks like Puck is doing well towards his LTW and I really like their house. :)

    1. That's odd - I was sure I had replied to your comment already yesterday, but it is not here now.
      Yes, I quite like the idea of introducing Servos to New Max. I am sure Pleasant Servo won't be the only one on the long run!
      Thanks for telling me about the skills, personality and badge; it has been so long since I last played a Servo that I had forgotten about that.
      Indeed, a SentryBot will come in handy at college!

  2. Fun with the servo - I never had the patience to get any sim to gold in robotics, so never had one. I have played this game for so long, but still so many things I never did (yet) :)

    1. Unfortunately, Servos - like PlantSims, Vampires etc. - bore me after a while, as I do not see much room for "development" in them, if you know what I mean. They do not age, they do not die, they can not have children... So the novelty of playing a Servo wears off rather soon with me.


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.
