Tuesday, 3rd of Winter, Year 2 - Household 3

Household 3 fixed - Kags Grue Mind Cog Drawn Vero Bubble181 and Polly.jpg


A chill winter.

Household 3 has been hit by a double whammy - both Drawn Inward and Polly have expired within the last few days.
04-10-19_8-46-24 PM.png


I arrange their urns in tasteful locations in the foyer.
04-10-19_8-47-45 PM.png


Bubble is actually the best cook in the house now.
04-10-19_8-51-34 PM.png


Grue beseeches his cat to return.
04-10-19_8-52-07 PM.png


And Kags does the same for her brother.
04-10-19_8-53-23 PM.png


This gives Bubble enough time to finish cooking breakfast, and then it's down to business. Sim Life is short - that's a point well-hammered home, lately, so ya gotta chase those aspirations.
04-10-19_8-55-52 PM.png


Incidentally it's snowing like crazy outside, so outdoor pursuits are probably gonna have to wait.
04-10-19_8-56-50 PM.png


Vero gets busy raising that charsima.
04-10-19_8-57-15 PM.png


MD has already overexerted himself this morning... he'll have to kinda take it easy.
04-10-19_8-57-26 PM.png


Logic level 6 is within Cog's grasp.
04-10-19_8-58-49 PM.png


Grue has to be at work in an hour and a half, and he's been neglecting his comedy writing. That's no way to get promoted.
04-10-19_8-59-39 PM.png


In order to further his renaissance sim aspiration, Bubble needs two promotions at a job. Since he's been getting really good at cooking, I have him get a job in the culinary industry.
bubble chef.jpg


And he starts off with some practice, so that he makes a good impression on his first day.
04-10-19_9-04-27 PM.png


Grue didn't finish his comedy prep, but he's already late for work and has to dash.
04-10-19_9-06-34 PM.png


Cog achieves the next step of his aspiration, and now he needs to own a rocket. Where the heck is he gonna find the room for a rocket??
04-10-19_9-08-30 PM.png


The only place Kags has been able to find the space to set up to deal with the artifacts she found in the jungle is in the downstairs bathroom. Cog must waddle his full-bladdered self upstairs to pee.
04-10-19_9-12-22 PM.png


Bubble doesn't really have anything he needs to do left today, so he watches a couple movies.
04-10-19_9-13-16 PM.png


Apparently no amount of inclement weather will stop Sara from grilling in the park.
04-10-19_9-19-11 PM.png


The conflict over the bathroom escalates.
04-10-19_9-20-14 PM.png


Losing a sibling makes you appreciate the one you have left.
04-10-19_9-20-58 PM.png


Vero finishes her self-taught charm school, now she needs to make 4 more friends. It occurs to her that even though they live together, she and MD could be closer. Some well-chosen words of flattery, and she's got herself another friend.
04-10-19_9-22-23 PM.png


Bubble misses Drawn Inward.
04-10-19_9-24-47 PM.png


Well, Vero's not gonna find more friends staying at home. She heads next door.
04-10-19_9-29-32 PM.png


She spends the rest of the day cheering up Household 1 in their time of loss, and nets a couple more friends.
04-10-19_9-31-00 PM.png


However, she and Luca get off to a bad start.
04-10-19_9-37-14 PM.png


She returns home around 10pm, worn out. Everybody's back to being nonproductive, of course.
04-10-19_9-43-48 PM.png


All these delicious things Bubble's been whipping up, and Kags goes for the cheese crackers.
04-10-19_9-45-28 PM.png


Bubble pumps a little iron before bed. Gotta keep that hard-won six pack.
04-10-19_9-45-51 PM.png


MD is content to sit and drink coffee.
04-10-19_9-46-20 PM.png


Vero and Cog are the first to hit the sack.
04-10-19_9-46-31 PM.png


Late that night, just as he's about to go to bed, Grue discovers Polly has appeared to.. uh... make a deposit. Welcome back to the family, Polly.

Oh, and did I forget to mention Grue broke the damn toilet? Kags mops the mess, but it's futile... until Cog wakes up and fixes it, puddles will just continue to form.
04-10-19_9-52-02 PM.png


And Kags is STILL a dance machine.

Given the opportunity/choice, I'd rather become a chef than a mixologist, but of course it's up to you what works.

Wednesday, 4th of Winter, Year 2 - Household 4

HH4.jpg


She's all about comfort and joy.

Welp, the boys are goofing off.
04-11-19_6-50-36 PM.png


GB's watching politics. Typical.
04-11-19_6-50-46 PM.png


Only the ladies are doing anything productive. I'm not sure what uncleanliness has Celt Z yucked out, you can't see anything under all the snow.
04-11-19_6-51-26 PM.png


Jwhouk's gotta learn 4 things. Dancing's just as good as anything, and he's already doing that himself.
04-11-19_6-51-46 PM.png


I replace the picnic tables with something a little more refined.
04-11-19_6-56-45 PM.png


Well, seems most people would rather sit at the bar anyway.
04-11-19_6-58-20 PM.png


Oh, and hey, it's Christmas! This is how we do Christmas .. er, excuse me, Winterfest, in Household 4.
04-11-19_6-59-13 PM.png


Tin likes to watch.
04-11-19_7-02-32 PM.png


DarkAudit is less of a party guy, though, and likes to be on his own. Ironically enough, though, he's over there chatting.
04-11-19_7-03-18 PM.png


Snuffles asks a risque question, and Dei doesn't respond well.

Welp, DA has broken his computer. I send Gas over to fix it, but...
04-11-19_7-06-24 PM.png


... he's easily distracted.
04-11-19_7-07-37 PM.png


No time for love, Dr. Jones. Fix the computer, techno-monkey.
04-11-19_7-08-59 PM.png


Caffeine is his reward to himself when he's finished.
04-11-19_7-11-56 PM.png


Yarr, Gruebeard grills himself up a hearty pirate stew of beanies and weenies.
04-11-19_7-12-55 PM.png


Alright, everybody's got the day off from work, but there's still aspirations to chase. I set Snuffles back to mixology practice.
04-11-19_7-16-37 PM.png


The other fellas are gonna work their minds at the poker table. I need to keep them busy...
04-11-19_7-18-14 PM.png


And Dei, too. Work that acting skill, girl.
04-11-19_7-18-35 PM.png


The reason being, I want them productive while I send Celt Z over to work on HER aspiration - which needs one more romantic conquest. I send her down the street to Household 1.
04-11-19_7-20-44 PM.png


This house is in the throes of mourning. Somebody should surely need some company to cheer them up.
04-11-19_7-21-44 PM.png


Oh, who's this strapping, distinguished ghost? He's lunch, that's what he is.
04-11-19_7-23-00 PM.png


Hey Charon, Mistletoe!
04-11-19_7-25-32 PM.png


Next thing you know, they're in more secluded environs...
04-11-19_7-31-16 PM.png


... and one thing leads to another. Celt Z has her third strong romantic relationship. She's still gotta find six other people to kiss, though.

Meanwhile, Jwhouk's dancing is getting less awful.
04-11-19_7-34-55 PM.png


If Tin isn't careful, he's gonna set fire to his beard.
04-11-19_7-35-37 PM.png


DarkAudit's switched gears to console instead of PC. Gas decides it's time for a nap.
04-11-19_7-36-10 PM.png


Celt Z gets home from her tryst. Yeah, that townie seems to know what's up. She joins GB in taking a nap.
04-11-19_7-36-53 PM.png


Tin elects to eat his dinner down at the bar, and chat with Snuffles while he practices. Snuffles achieves mixology level 7. Now he just needs for his professional career to catch up to him.
04-11-19_7-37-39 PM.png


Snuffles once again entreats the afterlife for a visit from his dog, but the ethereal circuits seem to be busy.
04-11-19_7-39-55 PM.png


Having awakened from his nap, Gas joins the party downstairs.
04-11-19_7-41-55 PM.png


If Celt Z is gonna smooch 6 more people in rapid succession, she's gonna need a lot smoother tongue. She works on her pickup lines in the bathroom mirror, since Dei is still monopolizing the standing mirror.
04-11-19_7-43-30 PM.png


Kags goes out for a run on this bracing winter's night.
04-11-19_7-45-17 PM.png


DA goes to bed before 10 like some kind of responsible adult.
04-11-19_7-45-47 PM.png


And despite their afternoon nap, CZ and GB aren't far behind him.
04-11-19_7-46-23 PM.png


He's exhausted and has to pee REAL bad, but Snuffles is enjoying the conversation with Tin too much. He crosses his legs and holds it.
04-11-19_7-47-05 PM.png


Dei gets another audition saturday at 9 am. I think I'm just going to have to remember that and switch back to her to get her to her audition this time. That settled, she heads off to bed.
04-11-19_7-48-11 PM.png


In fact, the whole place is asleep by midnight, and sleeps through til morning. Silent night, indeed.

That's the symbol for "woo-hoo." What the sims calls sex, to avoid getting an M rating. You are gossiping with him about who's sleeping with whom.

Thursday, 5th of Winter, Year 2 - Household 5

HH5.jpg


A challenger appears!

Klew's gotta get those 4 4 skills, and he's been working diligently at logic.
04-12-19_6-41-30 PM.png


Well, I guess Zappit can't burn to death anymore if he screws up with the grill, huh?
04-12-19_6-41-43 PM.png


Hrm, somebody's missing here.
04-12-19_6-42-41 PM.png


Ah, it seems that Null's reprieve from death was less than 5 days. Well, I mean, knowing his girlfriend, I'm not surprised.
04-12-19_6-43-06 PM.png


Speaking of, she isn't too happy with the development, either.
04-12-19_6-45-16 PM.png


Everybody has a breakfast of Zappit's burgers, but Bhamv just kind of picks at her food.
04-12-19_6-47-50 PM.png


So, when she wanders away from the table, I have her perform the ritual to strengthen Null's ties to the material plane.
04-12-19_6-48-57 PM.png


Afterwards, she decides to go cry it out in bed.
04-12-19_6-50-53 PM.png


After breakfast, Zappit entertains himself briefly by possessing a nearby bookshelf, startling Sparhawk.

Meanwhile, it looks like Jun is getting to know some of the kids in the neighborhood.
04-12-19_6-52-13 PM.png


Sara's gonna need some coffee if she's to be productive today.
04-12-19_6-54-59 PM.png


Klew and Spar are cutting the proverbial rug, and I had intended to make some kind of memetic reference to the dancing guys in Gravity Falls, but then Bhamv shows up and steals the show by flirting with Klew and then shouting insults at him. She's an eccentric one.

The argument leaves Klew in a terrible mood.
04-12-19_6-57-53 PM.png


Meanwhile, Zappit has painted his first masterpiece. Bravo!
04-12-19_7-01-58 PM.png


Spar and Klew head off to work as Bhamv takes out the trash.

Bhamv still needs one more date. One beau is dead, and the other's at work. Tiger makes a convenient target... and she easily sweet talks him into taking her out.
04-12-19_7-06-26 PM.png


They head to the Orchid a Go-Go club. Hey, MD seems to be a bouncer here!
04-12-19_7-10-15 PM.png


Things seem to go very well at first, but I have to keep Bhamv from going Dr Hyde a few times on Tiger.
04-12-19_7-12-28 PM.png


What, did Dei raid GasBandit's closet before going out today?!
04-12-19_7-13-04 PM.png


As long as Bhamv stays on track and doesn't turn nasty, Tiger puts up no resistance at all and is enraptured.
04-12-19_7-16-49 PM.png


They take this party back to the house.
04-12-19_7-20-38 PM.png


And then Tiger can't contain himself any more.

Sara takes a break from the chessboard to get in some time on the treadmill.
04-12-19_7-23-45 PM.png


Bhamv worked up an appetite. Tiger, on the other hand, has immediate need of a nap.
04-12-19_7-25-24 PM.png


Klew gets home from work, and immediately sets to the chessboard with a will.
04-12-19_7-33-25 PM.png


Once she's done with her bite and her nap, Bhamv starts working her charm skills in a mirror.
04-12-19_7-37-24 PM.png


Null apparently texts Tiger his approval from beyond the veil. I take this as a positive indicator that he'll be showing up tonight.
Null Text.jpg


Zappit takes a break from painting to refuel. He's had quite a day, completing several excellent paintings.
04-12-19_7-39-36 PM.png


Silk gets sprayed by YET ANOTHER SKUNK.
04-12-19_7-41-09 PM.png


(sniff... sniff sniff) oh man...
04-12-19_7-43-24 PM.png


Spar is off to wash his stinky, stinky ghost dog. Again.
04-12-19_7-46-01 PM.png


I don't know where Adam is going, but he's dressed up for it.
04-12-19_7-44-34 PM.png


Tiger's got a song in his heart and he's just gotta let it out.
04-12-19_7-46-42 PM.png


Klew completes his logic needs. One down, three to go! It's too bad that he and Sara weren't able to work on that at the same time.
04-12-19_7-49-40 PM.png


Bubble's out for a late night jog. Seems kinda chilly to me, but then, I don't jog at ALL, so what do I know.
04-12-19_7-52-10 PM.png


DA, too
04-12-19_7-53-58 PM.png


Zappit puts the finishing touches on his fifth excellent painting, and heads off to bed. Bhamv keeps practicing her charisma late into the night.
04-12-19_7-55-45 PM.png


Looks like Dancing is next on Klew's agenda.
04-12-19_7-56-23 PM.png


Around 1 am, much as I thought he would, Null's incorporeal self drifts in on the breeze.
04-12-19_7-57-36 PM.png


Fortunately for him, his girl has fought off sleepiness for just this opportunity.
04-12-19_7-58-29 PM.png


Oh, wow, really? The Observatory? Well. Heh. Welcome back to the household, Null.

How are you spending our aspiration reward points? FYI: potions suck, and the CW is to skip them entirely.

I have explicitly mentioned every time I've purchased an aspiration reward. Usually I try to get something in line with the aspiration of the sim in question (like Zappit getting Creative Visionary), but when Mind Detective was getting on in years I did have him get a potion of youth.. and he's outlived most of the others of his age bracket. He already had Gym Rat, so I figured he could splurge a little.

Friday, 6th of Winter, Year 2 - Household 1 (and some Household 4)

HH1.jpg


Girls just wanna have fun. Boys just want to wreck the plumbing.

Apparently Celt Z is enough to even wear out a ghost. Hot-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha.
04-13-19_9-44-19 AM.png


Cheesy's been diligently working on his logic skill, without even needing my intervention.
04-13-19_9-46-16 AM.png


Black Magic Woman Wasabi works her mojo on Gryfter's urn to see if she can get him to show up.
04-13-19_9-48-02 AM.png


Despite his fatigue, Charon tries to cook breakfast for everybody.
04-13-19_9-49-29 AM.png


Reviews of the french toast are not favorable. Nobody likes it but Cheesy and Terrik.
04-13-19_9-50-32 AM.png


I get notified that Dei's audition is in an hour, so I have to switch away from Household 1 for a bit. It's a good thing I did, too, she's just wandering the neighborhood instead of getting ready.
04-13-19_9-54-36 AM.png


Dei will perform best if she shows up to the audition confident. I have her psych herself up in the mirror before heading out.
04-13-19_9-56-00 AM.png


Everybody else in Household 4 goofs off until Gas and DarkAudit head off to work.
04-13-19_9-59-19 AM.png


Man, is Bubble ever NOT jogging?
04-13-19_10-00-23 AM.png


I have the three NEETs of household 4 play some cards to boost Tin's logic and also so they can socialize and get to be better friends.
04-13-19_10-01-44 AM.png


Dei got the gig. That means I'll probably have to switch back to Household 4 again tomorrow to make her do her thing properly.
04-13-19_10-02-48 AM.png


DA has a potential drama issue at work, but it all goes ok.
DA choice.jpg
DA win.jpg


It just seems to be a good day to be Squidley.
04-13-19_10-06-25 AM.png


Dei is monopolizing the living room mirror to practice her acting for the commercial shoot, so Celt Z has to practice her seduction on the bathroom mirror.
04-13-19_10-06-59 AM.png


To advance his aspiration, at some point, Jwhouk IS going to need a job. Let's find him something interesting to do.
04-13-19_10-07-57 AM.png


This should do.
jwhouk astronaut.jpg


Since the astronaut path wants him to play chess on his own time, he joins Tin for a game.
04-13-19_10-10-28 AM.png


It took some doing, but Dei's acting skill does eventually improve.
04-13-19_10-11-20 AM.png


Celt Z gets chased out of the bathroom by Tin being all pissy.

You know what, it'd just be easier to get a second mirror for the living room. Celt Z discovers her perfume actually also makes a pretty decent breath spray, apparently.
04-13-19_10-13-00 AM.png


The tandem twitterpation training pays off, and both girls are ready to mingle. But where? And with who?
04-13-19_10-13-45 AM.png


Meanwhile, General Specific apparently forgot he was supposed to go to work today. Ooops.
04-13-19_10-14-55 AM.png


Wasabi wants to party. She calls up all the gals she knows, even the ones she doesn't particularly get along with.
04-13-19_10-15-38 AM.png


BIG GIRLS' NIGHT OUT AT THE DANCE CLUB! WOOO
04-13-19_10-18-50 AM.png


The DJ is bumpin and the tunes are thumpin and everybody's jumpin gettin pumped, pumped, pumped.

Cog has apparently snuck in later and hides in the corner. Keeping an eye on his wife maybe?
04-13-19_10-22-42 AM.png


Well, he also manages to find a little something he can enjoy, too...
04-13-19_10-24-17 AM.png


Give that man one little drink and suddenly he's channeling Travolta.

Oh, so Bubble DOES do something besides jog.
04-13-19_10-26-46 AM.png


As the party winds down, everybody seems to have enjoyed themselves, and lingers around to socialize.
04-13-19_10-27-55 AM.png


There is a minor incident however when Celt Z accidentally walks in on Jun in the bathroom. Awkwaaard!
04-13-19_10-28-14 AM.png


This party has given Wasabi a nice reputation boost.
Wasabi reputation.jpg


She and Jun get home from the club around 10. Wasabi's still got some moxy to strut. Jun is exhausted and heads straight to bed.
04-13-19_10-31-48 AM.png


Apparently General Specific did NOT get fired for being several hours late to work today. Cheesy NOM NOM NOM. Terrik has been goofing off all day.
04-13-19_10-34-05 AM.png


Wasabi is so pumped up she goes on a cleaning rampage.
04-13-19_10-34-22 AM.png


Charon possesses the bathroom sink, and it breaks. Whups.
04-13-19_10-35-31 AM.png


So, while Terrik, Wasabi, and GenSpec chat and watch TV...
04-13-19_10-38-08 AM.png


... Cheesy and Charon tackle the bathroom situation.
04-13-19_10-38-21 AM.png


And using the parts left over, Cheesy upgrades the toilet that gets the most traffic in the house, just to maybe head off some problems before they back up, figuratively and literally.
04-13-19_10-39-54 AM.png


Gryfter's shade arrives, and he's pissed off. With one fell swoop, he breaks the sink and the shower in another bathroom, and hovers there fuming.
04-13-19_10-40-29 AM.png


Terrik's a smooth talker, let's get him to assuage Gryfter's unrest.
04-13-19_10-41-12 AM.png


Huh, that was easy.
04-13-19_10-41-44 AM.png


Well, Gryfter, you broke it, you fix it. Welcome back to the household.
04-13-19_10-42-13 AM.png


When he gets done upgrading that toilet, Cheesy comes and helps.
04-13-19_10-42-57 AM.png


Charon plays some foosball... his way.

Having finished their repairs, Gryfter and Cheesy celebrate their renewed friendship with some nerdy chess.
04-13-19_10-45-07 AM.png


Terrik has apparently decided to teach Luca to dance.
04-13-19_10-46-50 AM.png

That looks pretty true to life....there was this one time in my 20's when I was at a house party, drunk as a skunk, and all of the approved bathrooms were taken. So I just wandered into the hosts sister's bathroom and did my business while she was in the middle of taking a bath.

I was pretty drunk. I remember slurring out something like "I'm really sorry, but I really gotta piss. Just look at the wall."

Surprisingly, there were no repercussions, and I don't even recall her yelling at me about it during the event (though, you know, I was so drunk, she might've and I just don't remember)

This is pretty much all of Mr. Z and I's bathroom interactions. He doesn't believe that bathroom time is Me Time, and I've given up on him ever learning that.

Boogity, boogity.

... I forgot Adam HAD that outfit. I guess he's been to a party recently.

MikeRC is pretty down. A number of sims he's friends with have passed away recently. He stays in this funk for most of the day.

To advance his mixology aspiration, HCGLNS joins the culinary career track.

When she's making pancakes for breakfast, Dirona makes a little bit of a mess.
04-14-19_10-51-10 AM.png


Emrys wants that T.
04-14-19_10-52-02 AM.png


Adam helps out by refilling the ferret's food dispenser.
04-14-19_10-52-35 AM.png


The problem with getting HCGLNS to practice his mixology is that he keeps stopping to sample his own handiwork.
04-14-19_10-53-24 AM.png


Breakfast time!
04-14-19_10-55-14 AM.png


HCGLNS takes a post-breakfast nap.
04-14-19_10-57-36 AM.png


And oh yeah, it's New Year's Eve today, so everybody who has a job gets the day off, with pay.
04-14-19_10-58-40 AM.png


Squidley can spend all day painting. Adam eagerly waits to sell them as she finishes, and they both get satisfaction toward their aspirations.
04-14-19_11-02-13 AM.png


She does take the occasional break.
04-14-19_11-04-14 AM.png


Adam is as surprised to find himself singing as anyone. Now here's a shot we need a RL expression mockup of!
04-14-19_11-05-21 AM.png


Something wrong with the grill in your back yard, Joe?
04-14-19_11-08-04 AM.png


A dangerous predator glides by, looking for her next catch... although if Emrys was aware of it, she'd probably want to invite her in.
04-14-19_11-08-27 AM.png


Emrys tries to train Pudding out of his scratching habit. Pud's not having it.
04-14-19_11-10-03 AM.png


But Emrys knows how to soothe a cranky kitty.
04-14-19_11-10-52 AM.png


Over the course of the day, Dirona makes several overtures to getting MikeRC to stop moping in his room, with varying degrees of success.

This is a mutually beneficial partnership if ever there was one.
04-14-19_11-13-25 AM.png


Gas joins the inexplicable barbecue. Think he's talking about Terrik here?
04-14-19_11-14-51 AM.png


Grilling in the snow? It's a magic spell to summon Sara if ever there was one.
04-14-19_11-15-18 AM.png


Whatcha got those sims doin' in that hot tub, Mike?
04-14-19_11-16-49 AM.png


Painting is hard work, too.
04-14-19_11-17-21 AM.png


MikeRC mischievously dares Dirona to go *streaking.* Dirona doesn't back down. Dei gets an eyeful.
04-14-19_11-25-02 AM.png


It's all well and good for a while, but it's freakin' freezing out there! Soon I am forced to intervene to prevent Dirona from freezing to death.
04-14-19_11-25-59 AM.png


Does this look like the face of embarrasment? No, it does not. Dirona got a huge kick out of that.
04-14-19_11-27-09 AM.png


Dirona makes an offering at PatrThom's urn. There is a visible reaction. Maybe he'll finally show up tonight.
04-14-19_11-29-36 AM.png


Adam gets a little flirty with Squidley, and HCGLNS doesn't like it. No sir.
04-14-19_11-30-29 AM.png


I had moved the urns out of the way by the back door to make room on the coffee table... HCGLNS goes and possesses his in a jealous fit of pique.

Ferrets get new year's treats, too.
04-14-19_11-33-51 AM.png


As an animal lover, Emrys gets aspirational satisfaction points from snuggling animals.
04-14-19_11-34-52 AM.png


Animals can be a bit of work to keep, though.
04-14-19_11-35-55 AM.png


MikeRC has a paranoid streak, and often thinks someone, something, or EVERYONE is out to get him.
04-14-19_11-36-27 AM.png


HCGLNS's jealousy has him flirt with Dirona. [MikeRC disliked that.]
04-14-19_11-38-12 AM.png


It's been a hard day of putting color to canvas, and Squidley heads off to bed at 9. It isn't long before HCGLNS joins her, and then Dirona turns in as well.
04-14-19_11-40-08 AM.png


Selfie!
04-14-19_11-41-29 AM.png


After midnight, an angry spirit shows up and kicks the trash can over.

MikeRC tries to soothe PatrThom's vengeful ghost, but it doesn't go well.
04-14-19_11-49-16 AM.png


It kicks off a prolonged argument that severely damages their friendship, and MikeRC slinks away, dispirited.
04-14-19_11-51-18 AM.png


Dirona's drama sense is tingling.
04-14-19_11-52-12 AM.png


She tries HER luck at subduing the rampaging Pat.
04-14-19_11-52-57 AM.png


It was super effective. Welcome back home, Pat.
04-14-19_11-53-38 AM.png


Adam gets a wild notion to go make a snow angel. Seems like he really likes the snow.

Pudding goes searching for treasure in the wreckage of Patrthom's tantrum.
04-14-19_11-56-04 AM.png


Oh hey, he actually found something. Huh.
04-14-19_11-57-34 AM.png


Pat decides to clean up the mess he made.
04-14-19_11-58-19 AM.png


Happy new year, everybody.
