    Oh gosh... I would just get the vaccine. It's much easier and I hate the covid test. XD

    i had considered it for a while but between my meds and break out cases i freaked out all over again. so having a giant q tip up my nose seemed like the better option, i'm also the only one in my family who never got it. the virus i mean.

    The workplace I am at will be implementing that real soon. I got my shot awhile back. Just waiting 'til it's my turn to be able to get the booster. I totally understand in regards to health concerns on why someone does not want to get it. I know some who will not get the shot because of other reasons which I call a special kind of stupid. But for you, I get it. Hopefully you can figure out if the meds you're on will give you a reaction if you do end up wanting to get the shot. Looks like you're taking care of yourself which is good. :smile:

    Is it me or does anyone else try to see how far they can get the swab up the nose?

    They are, indeed, quite unpleasant.

    I was told that they push it into your nostril until they feel resistance. Then they rapidly swirl it around about 5-10 times.

    Can confirm, had it done myself (it came back negative, thankfully)

    I did a rapid testing and they made me do it on myself. That's what they said in regards to how far...go until there's resistance. Sadly, I had the opposite results than you did. I was tested positive. Had a very mild case. Just a nasty cough I thought was a cold cough. No fever or any other symptoms. I was just sick of coughing constantly and decided to humor myself and get tested. Didn't turn out to be funny at the time. Had to isolate myself for 10 days. But I did get paid at work for what I was scheduled which was nice. My cough ended a few days after getting tested. But had to still wait out the rest of the time.

    I've got blog updates to do, but I also want to keep playing... decisions, decisions...

    The new avatar is of Athena and Sophia as children, they aged up in my last play session. Athena's in front, with the brown eyes, and Sophia's at the back with the blue eyes. Theseus is also a child, as he's a few days older than the twins.

    Also... say hello to Ariadne!

    Here are Theseus, Athena and Sophia as children. They're dressed a bit like how they were as toddlers. And yup, the family acquired a dog! Actually, they have two... yeah I need to get going with the updates... why am I so good at procrastinating :#:D

    Another three chapters of Box of Chocolates are up.
    1.41 Dinner
    1.42 Date
    1.43 Puppy Love

    Meet the newest member of the Katz family. I know her fur looks smooth, but she's a curly coated retriever. Curls are more obvious as an adult.

    I’ve decided I really need to be more organised when it comes to my stories. So I think I should spend around a week on each one. Given that this week has already started, I’ll probably use the rest of this week to catch up with blog/thread posts and create some new characters for the Parker Saga, in a new save to then place in the Gallery when ready. Then next week I’ll go to Sulani at Heart, and start playing with generation 4 and have them all get to know each other.

    Anyone know why I can't find a base game blouse for a new Sim, and yet I can find it on an old sim ?

    @MadameLee Is it the black one? Because it's there with new Juliet, but in a white and green floral pattern.

    EDIT: or are you talking about the blouse with puff sleeves and a ruffle down the center? Maybe it accidentally got locked by EA in a patch. Librarian NPCs wear it so maybe move in a librarian? Or find one on the gallery?

    I was so focused on the one black patch *not* being what I needed with that green floral thing, but turned out there was an identical swatch which I had been tuning out which was what I needed

    I got distracted and ended up playing Sims 3 for a few days, but I am doing the blog updates! Also mentally planning what I’m going to do with the Sulani at Heart save; probably a toddler play date with all the cousins.

    There are a lot of screenshots in this one, but it was a very busy time with three weddings and so many children...

    Sulani at Heart, Chapter Eight: Proposals and Weddings and Babies, Oh My!

    I'll probably be switching to the Long lifespan with this save, so I can spend a decent amount of time with each family. I currently have it set so that only the active household ages, but I'm not really a rotational player personally. I find it easier to keep up with aging on for everyone.

    That cat looks like it's in the process of predicting the future, and not liking what it sees.

    Funny that you mention that but it's not a million miles away from the truth.

    OK, Sim 66 is still a monster creation I can barely control...I love the world building part! Anyway, I had the D.N.A. team create the real life Sixties supermodel Jean Shrimpton for the story and here she is on the Fashions of Sim 66 page.

    If anyone has a request for a real life Sixties celebrity they'd like to see in the story (probably not as a main character, but as a supporting or Townie one) then I'd like to hear them and...if I can manage it, I'll create them in CAS.

    Too funny. I'm cracking up now. I was checking out the tv shows that were in the 60s. And I found this:

    The Avengers
    1961 ‧ Drama ‧ 6 seasons
    v1.dDs0OTQxNTM7ajsxODk5NTsxMjAwOzY2Njs5OTk

    The real Avengers! :lol:
