Jimmy Phoenix: Week 4

Jimmy Phoenix is one of the few remaining playables still living in an apartment house; I have moved out many during this round, because I am fed up with the eternally bugged lots. This one, though, does not seem to be so badly affected.
He shares the flat with his dog, Timmy.
On Monday, he manages to maximize the body skill - essential for his lifetime want of becoming General.

Sharon Wirth...
...and Oberon Summerdream walk by and are cordially invited in.
The two elderly people seem to have an acquaintance in common, who quickly becomes the subject of their conversation. I am not sure who it is they are talking about; could be Castor Nova.
On Tuesday, Jimmy sets off all suited up for his very first mission in space.
It is also his last one - because by the time he comes home, he has already been promoted to General! So from now on, he will be on Permanent Platinum. But unlike with other PermaPlat Sims, I am still going to control Jimmy. I do not want to risk him neglecting Timmy, the dog.
The man in the background is Rick Contrary, by the way.
Still in his bulky space suit, Jimmy gives Timmy a badly needed bath. This dog could do with a bath almost every day!
To celebrate having reached his LTW, Jimmy he invites over some of his friends.     
The party is a success; all his guests are having fun.
On Wednesday, an army helicopter picks Jimmy up for work.
On Thursday, it is time for yet another bath for Timmy.
After work, General Stephen Tinker gets off the heli with Jimmy.
General Tinker and General Phoenix have world safety to discuss over bowls of mac & cheese.
It is Friday morning, and the start of a long weekend for Jimmy: he does not have to work until Monday.
First, he and his dog watch a movie together.
Later, he greets Ramon Ramirez.
Then, he catches up with some of those friends who couldn't make it to the party earlier this week.
On Saturday, while the landlord hosts his block party and the other tenants (Jared Starchild and two townie girls, one of them not wearing anything in the hot tub...!) all seem to be enjoying themselves...
...Jimmy prefers his own company.
But when Tina Traveller jogs by, I have him greet her. So far, Jimmy has never shown any particular interest in any particular lady.
Before he goes to bed that Saturday night, he does some stargazing.
On Sunday morning, he browses the simternet for science - although to me it looks suspiciously like a sports page.
Timmy turns into an elderly dog.
Carla Reamon is greeted.
Every day, Jimmy has been re-rolling the want for throwing a party, and on Sunday afternoon, I give in. Brittany Upsnott, Shaun Singles, Hal Riley (formerly Capp), Jules Cleveland (nee O'Mackey) and Marla Biggs all arrive together.
As the previous party, this one turns out to be a success. The guests have not caused too much of a mess; only two cans of juice are left on the counter.
Jimmy is happy with how his week went. He has reached his LTW and hosted two great parties. What more could he wish for!


  1. a lovely lady to keep him occupied when you let him run riot on his own

    1. So far, none has come up, but maybe someone is waiting in another household who is just right for him :-)

  2. Hmmm... the reply to the previous comment made me wonder if you have someone in mind for Jimmy... lthough he seems quite content at the moment with his parties and his high-maintenance dog :)

    1. No, I have no-one in mind for Jimmy; but of course if during the remaining round I come across a Sim who has an interest in him (or 3 bolts), that will settle the matter :-)
      His dog really is particular; his social and hygiene needs drop rather quickly. Good job there are always some other tenants downstairs near the hot tub, so that he can interact with them when Jimmy is at work.

  3. Sorry for the comment. The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection is only available until July 31 at 10AM PDT (7PM in your time), though things might change as last week they were only giving it away to those who had a TS2 game already registered, and then they started giving it away to anyone who contacted them to register, so who knows what'll happen next!

    You must need to download Origin as quick as fast.

    1. Not to worry - I downloaded it weeks ago :-) (it was for free, because my TS2 games were already registered.)


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.
