Vagabond BACC, week 8: Keefe

Time to check in with the Keefes. In El Marrow, Milo and Suzi Keefe made their money running a head club, becoming millionaires and laundering said millions by funding a university. They had two daughters, Josie and Georgia; Josie came with them to Nuevo Marrow and Georgia went somewhere else. The Keefes are still fantastically rich. At the end of Week 7, Josie was pregnant from one of her many boyfriends.

Featuring sims by sjoisan, olivethegreat, austereacademy, probably a couple of others. Also, this is a house of Romance sims, and they have a hot tub; pictures are somewhat censored but still, not exactly kid- or work-friendly.

Archives are here.

Milo and Suzi are still madly in love, even as elders.

Spirit Reddie (sjoisan) moved in after leaving Aeneas Blake. She and Josie have the same LTW - Woohoo w/20 - so in theory they should get along fine.

The Keefes talk to Spirit about her prospects and invite her to join them in the Business career. She can hardly say no.

Look at all the seating in this place! Later on I removed the table on the right and put in a chess set.

Josie finally has her baby.

I know I could look up the father in the family panel, but Josie probably wouldn't have kept track, so neither will I. She names him Sebastian. (Is anyone getting the reference here?)

Suzi and Milo are working full-time, but the nanny isn't 24/7, so poor Sebastian at least gets some attention now and then.

Much to my surprise, Milo gets a visit from the Reaper a lot earlier than I expected. And he was about to become a tycoon, too! >:(
 photo keefe808.png

Enjoy your trust-fund heaven, Milo. You were enjoyed. Anyway, you cheated death once already, I'm sure you're okay with things.
 photo keefe809.png

Josie isn't really bothered by her father's passing.

Poor Suzi is the only one to take Milo's urn to the graveyard.
 photo keefe812.png

Well, y'know, someone has to stay home with the baby.
 photo keefe811.png

"Hey, is this closed circuit TV? That looks like the guy in the next room."
 photo keefe813.png

Sebastian isn't going to look like anyone in this family.
 photo keefe814.png

The remaining women keep working their way up the business career.
 photo keefe815.png

Suzi goes a couple of days after Milo.
 photo keefe817.png

Now it's just two hot-blooded young ladies, who proceed to work in "business" of a very discreet nature.
 photo keefe818.png

Fortunately, most sim men don't seem to mind that their temporary girlfriends have kids, as long as they get a piece of birthday cake.

Working by day, working girls by night.

I'm not really keeping track except to avoid duplicates. Also, I figure each new customer gets one chance at "try for baby" on the date. So far, no takers.
 photo keefe821.png

You'd think the hot tub and physical activity would've kept her warm.
 photo keefe822.png

"You jerk! C'mon, help me get her inside so she can warm up."
"Hey, I'm cold too. Wanna help warm me up?"
 photo keefe823.png

The girls also get the usual conflicted feelings about their customers.
 photo keefe824.png

Poor Sebastian gets very little attention. He's not learning the toddler skills, that's for sure.
 photo keefe826.png

Correction - he's getting toilet trained.
 photo keefe827.png

Insert your own dirty caption here.
 photo keefe828.png

At last, the date payoffs begin.
 photo keefe829.png

There's a TV inside, too, but I guess this one is nicer. Maybe the girls should set up a lobby.
 photo keefe830.png

"Hey, big boy, wanna come press my leaves?"
 photo keefe831.png

"I've heard you're totally the bomb."
 photo keefe832.png

Oops, nobody put Suzi in the graveyard yet. Well, Josie's been busy, what with work and the baby and all.
 photo keefe833.png

I bet after the scare, Josie tried to cover it up with "Oh, the size of your wang startled me!"
 photo keefe835.png

Hey, recognize this guy? Big hint: he's a playable.

That wraps up the week at the Ho-Ho House.

WALL OF TEXT TIME! Also tax time. The Keefes and Spirit had three POBs between them: Sink or Swim, Studs and Duds, and Club Sundara. They bought that last one to give sims a place to go. However, like all clubs everywhere in my game since the beginning of time, nobody can actually go to it because just trying to enter the lot crashes my game. But the club still counts as a POB, darn it, and they did pay money for it, so they pay taxes on it.

They pay $9000 in taxes for all the businesses. They also pay $9,654 in personal taxes. Adding all of this to the existing total of $619,604, we have $638,258 for the next university.

The population is at 162 sims x 34 SM = 5508 (Sebastian was born, Milo and Suzi died, gained 1 CAS sim, so nothing changed. Yay bookkeeping!).

Households: 30. (Dorms don't count; apartments count as one household no matter how many families.) They get their next free community lot at 32.
