oh, man, did you see that asshole's schedule? There's a guy who hates his family and loves himself.
There's an episode of The God & Devil Show where God and The Devil interview Mark Wahlberg right about the time the first Planet of the Apes movie came out. Through time travel-y hijinks, the timeline is altered and Mark becomes most stereotypically middle-aged. He immediately loses it ("Nooo! My rock-hard abs!") and forces them (at gunpoint, I believe?) to take him back in time to when he still had his rock-hard abs.

Sadly*, this is one of those episodes you just can't seem to find online any more. I really should've grabbed them all when I had the chance.

*Well, it's not that sad.

Thanks! I tried finding it but was unsuccessful, and even the official DVD release doesn't have all the episodes, nor does it have the third WB option you could choose when watching it on their site.

It's just a prank, bro.

Apparently, today began with everybody (above ground) going and picking up Klew from the hospital.
04-22-19_6-55-44 PM.png


Zappit has elected to grill everybody up some beanie weenies for breakfast.
04-22-19_6-56-47 PM.png


As he carries the meal to the table, he discovers Silk has laid a ghostly canine land-mine for him.
04-22-19_6-57-22 PM.png


Not everybody opts for the beans and franks. But they do eat together. Note that the only one not an elder (or undead) is Bhamv.
04-22-19_7-00-00 PM.png


I didn't do anything, I swear! - Tiger
04-22-19_7-02-20 PM.png


Null is inspired to attempt his first romance novel.

Well, everybody else seems to be gettin' with Bhamv, Spar figures he may as well try his luck, right?
04-22-19_7-04-32 PM.png


Bhamv strikes him upon his cheek. But afterwards, laughs and reveals it was just for prank day, she's not actually offended by his overtures.
04-22-19_7-04-50 PM.png


Klew demonstrates the dangers of beans for breakfast.
04-22-19_7-05-21 PM.png


Spar reciprocates the spirit of Prank Day.
04-22-19_7-05-45 PM.png


Klew is disappointed, but perhaps not surprised, in Bhamv's continued flirting around. It does sour his mood for the rest of the day, too.
04-22-19_7-07-01 PM.png


A huge thunderstorm descends upon the neighborhood, raising tensions.
04-22-19_7-08-10 PM.png


Zappit is on a roll, though, as far as painting goes.
04-22-19_7-12-01 PM.png


Null receives a royalty check.
null royalties.jpg


This inspires him to quickly finish up his romance novel. It's not his best work, but it's not bad, and the publisher takes it as well. Null is now actually getting some name recognition as an author.
04-22-19_7-19-26 PM.png


Sara can't wait to get started on her rocket. Even though there's thunder and lightning outside.
04-22-19_7-21-48 PM.png


Null's feeling pretty good about how things are going, so he decides to take the rest of the day off and bum around.
04-22-19_7-22-51 PM.png


Tiger tries out the heavy bag, but his age quickly catches up with him, and he has to spend a couple hours recuperating.
04-22-19_7-23-41 PM.png


Zappit achieves the next level of his aspiration. He's on the final step now to achieving his life (and death) -long dream of becoming a Painter Extraordinaire.
04-22-19_7-24-35 PM.png


Uh, I'm pretty sure doing that in the house is bad luck, Spar.
04-22-19_7-25-49 PM.png


It only takes a couple hours of thunderclaps and driving rain to douse Sara's enthusiasm for working on her rocket. Maybe next time.
04-22-19_7-27-43 PM.png


She unwinds a bit in the sauna.
04-22-19_7-28-45 PM.png


"Boo!" "MUH HART!" "Just a prank, bro!"
04-22-19_7-29-00 PM.png


"BOO!" "GAH!" "JUST A PRANK, BRO!!"
04-22-19_7-29-22 PM.png


I have no idea who this townie is, but apparently he's a friend of Null's.
04-22-19_7-30-13 PM.png


Oh, he just wants to use the sauna, I guess.
04-22-19_7-31-13 PM.png


Bhamv decides she's going to take another shower out in the rain, au naturale. Zappit gets an eyeful.
04-22-19_7-32-11 PM.png


Ain't no thunderstorm gonna stop THIS jungle explorer from gettin' her jog on.
04-22-19_7-33-46 PM.png


The storm takes Sara's umbrella, redoubling her tension.
04-22-19_7-34-18 PM.png


Bhamv and Zappit have some popcorn in the basement. I guess now they have something to talk about, eh?
04-22-19_7-35-36 PM.png


Sara assuages her tension by also helping to ease Klew's funk.
04-22-19_7-36-46 PM.png


And then she goes for another steam.
04-22-19_7-37-55 PM.png


Even Zappit's getting in on the Prank Day shenanigans.
04-22-19_7-38-47 PM.png


Oh, well, this is unfortunate. It's turning into one of those days.
04-22-19_7-39-13 PM.png


Aaand then the dishwasher breaks. But that gives Sara the opportunity to dig for upgrade parts.
04-22-19_7-42-01 PM.png


She's just a hugger today, and Bhamv's wandering eye is giving lots of people reasons to need hugs, today.
04-22-19_7-43-23 PM.png


It could also be because SOMEBODY broke the coffee machine.
04-22-19_7-43-48 PM.png


And then Zappit breaks the computer he's using.
04-22-19_7-44-27 PM.png


Sara to the rescue. AGAIN.
04-22-19_7-46-07 PM.png


Sparhawk pitches in by cleaning the sauna.
04-22-19_7-46-24 PM.png


Lightning strikes the veterinary table, but as Silk is now a ghost, I don't think it's important enough to spend the money to replace.
04-22-19_7-48-33 PM.png


Popcorn in the basement with Zappit seems to be a thing today.
04-22-19_7-49-18 PM.png


Null goes to bed not feeling well. Hopefully that clears up. Also how does a ghost get sick?
04-22-19_7-49-35 PM.png


Oh man, I hope that puddle is just from Silk shaking water off his coat..
04-22-19_7-51-29 PM.png


Aaand Spar loses his umbrella too, letting Silk out to piddle.
04-22-19_7-53-01 PM.png


Tiger cuddles away Silk's storm-engendered tension.
04-22-19_7-55-23 PM.png


Sparhawk attempts the climbing wall again, but at his age, all it does is damage. He gives up and goes to bed. Everybody is asleep at that point.
04-22-19_7-56-32 PM.png


Bhamv wakes up at 4, and heads down to grab some leftovers.
04-22-19_7-58-52 PM.png


The conversation at breakfast is... animated.

Medical Marvels and Dining Disasters

I have no idea where Wasabi got that hat. It is seriously out of season.
04-23-19_7-30-48 PM.png


Everybody eats breakfast in the living room in front of the TV, when there's a perfectly good fancy dining room going to waste.
04-23-19_7-33-49 PM.png


Feed your wife, Terrik, she is tiny, old, and hungry.
04-23-19_7-34-24 PM.png


Terrik's kinda tired at work, but he goes through the motions, and that is apparently good enough.
04-23-19_7-39-30 PM.png


Nobody interesting gets sick today, so Terrik just admits patients at random.
04-23-19_7-41-18 PM.png


He keeps trying to wander off to get coffee. It's hard to keep Terrik on task.

I do have to switch back to the house to make sure General Specific leaves for work on time today.
04-23-19_7-44-00 PM.png


While I'm doing that, Terrik snags the opportunity to go get that coffee, finally. And ends up wishing maybe he had not - apparently the Hospital buys from the lowest bidder for the staff room.
04-23-19_7-45-01 PM.png


... I'm pretty sure ears aren't supposed to work that way.

Terrik finishes his work day, exhausted, but with good reviews. He falls asleep on the toilet.
04-23-19_7-53-50 PM.png


He gets promoted!
Terrik Promoted.jpg


Charon whips up some Chili. From SCRATCH.

I drive Cheesy hard at the chess table. If he can get that last logic point, he and Gryfter can work on a rocket ship together.
04-23-19_7-57-30 PM.png


On such a beautiful summer day, Li Jun decides to practice her violin outside.
04-23-19_7-57-54 PM.png


Gryfter covers the household repairs.
04-23-19_7-58-13 PM.png


Unsurprisingly, Terrik immediately has a nap.
04-23-19_7-58-23 PM.png


Wasabi takes another stab at throwing a party. A dinner party. RIGHT NOW.
04-23-19_7-58-44 PM.png


A COSTUME dinner party, apparently.
04-23-19_8-00-50 PM.png


She hires a caterer and a mixologist. Apparently ghosts can't cater, so Charon doesn't get to do that. Bubble's in for making $250 quick, though.
04-23-19_8-01-18 PM.png


Charon's got a sweet costume.
04-23-19_8-01-51 PM.png


... I'm pretty sure the Mixologist is an ACTUAL vampire, and that's why he won't go outside to tend the damn tiki bar since the sun is up. He spends the whole evening making a nuisance of himself and distracting Bubble.
04-23-19_8-03-09 PM.png


Wasabi tries to fill in as best she can, despite never having mixed a drink in her life.
04-23-19_8-04-42 PM.png


Li Jun dresses as the spookiest monster of all, a GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE
04-23-19_8-05-51 PM.png


Bubble's Cheese-eyeballs seem to be a hit.
04-23-19_8-06-49 PM.png


General Specific arrives home from work, in costume. He got a promotion! Nice.
04-23-19_8-07-10 PM.png


MMmmm... Spooky cookies and a foot soak on a warm evening.
04-23-19_8-09-43 PM.png


Uhh.... this doesn't bode well.
04-23-19_8-11-18 PM.png


Yep, it's official, every single guest ends up sleeping in the hot tub (though technically Terrik wakes up just as Cheesy gets in).

"Great shindig, 'Sabi. Ya killed everybody." The dinner party concludes with another frustratingly bronze medal.
04-23-19_8-12-46 PM.png


It's not a total loss, I suppose... Wasabi is awarded these cute spooky lamps.
04-23-19_8-15-54 PM.png


She cleans up the wreckage of her social gathering. Bubble made a particularly notable mess in the kitchen.
04-23-19_8-17-56 PM.png


Wasabi is the last one in bed.

Oh, maybe this had something to do with the rating... apparently instead of cooking the main course.. Bubble just threw it on the floor and left it there??
04-23-19_8-20-54 PM.png


Well Gryfter wakes up super early and needs something to do to raise his handiness skill, so I have him upgrade the bathroom sink.

@Bubble181 and that weird 80's-haired vampire mixologist just HAD TO RUIN THE PARTY! At least Sim-Wasabi looks cute in her costume.
You and your guests simply do not understand fine cuisine! Eating from a bowl on the floor in the kitchen is the height of fashion! Raw food presented as to a pet, it is to make you think about the relationship between the supplier of food and the consumer, who is maintained and fed, like an animal. You heathens!
