The Townie Project, Part 5
a last-minute substitution
The next Townie scheduled for the Project was Goopy Gilscarbo, but he pulled out at the last minute, citing undisclosed personal reasons (we suspect that although he has presented himself as a doctor in the neighborhood, he's really a second assistant pill-stacker or something and he didn't want Sally to find out).
Over at the Danverses things were as wholesome and domestic as usual.
"Thanks for helping with my homework, grampa John!"
The first Sim on the waiting list was local repair-person Arcadia Bradshaw (no relation, we suspect, to Professor Arcadia Bradshaw of SSU), sponsored by John Danvers; so the house got briefly even more crowded than usual.
Welcome, Arcadia; here's your plumb-bob!
Ms. Bradshaw is a Romance Sim who hopes to someday woohoo with twenty different lovers. (I decided on Arcadia rather than Goopy because (a) I thought it'd be interesting to have an elder in the Project, (b) I'd heard that Goopy might be Romance, and we've already got one of those, and (c) the Danverses could use the moving-in money. Given that Arcadia is Romance, and that being an NPC she of course didn't bring in any money, I missed on two out of three; oh, well!)
She used her time at the Danverses to meet some new people.
"Oh yes, I'm very fond of NPCs!"
"On the other hand there's already an Arcadia Bradshaw in my rolodex, and that could cause some confusion."
But inside the place was as chaotic as usual.
A typical day at the Danverses
Let's see: that's Jane in her nightgown playing pinball with Taylor who walked by, and Justin autonomously noogying some passing townie child (or is that Taylor's son Aaron?); Jean, John, Georgia, Jan, and Jen are doing complicated things elsewhere in the house.
And before long she was off.
Having checked the bus schedule on the Web first.
"This house is too small for this many people! And they keep inviting passersby in!"
"Was it something I said?"
The Danverses isn't all that interesting to an outside Romance Sim; no one much to flirt with, and not even any babies to admire.
So the Project was up to seven.
"What a cute little thing!"
The Muse tells me that Arcadia's more comfortable with kids than Melissa is.
So now we've got two Family, two Romance, and one Fortune (and two babies). Only one more to go, and then they can move in!

Sally flirting with Arcadia
While Arcadia was at the Bus Stop waiting for the last Project member to arrive, Sally invited her over to the Love Nest.
Sally is a good listener.
I have no excuse whatever for posting these pictures, except that I think they're cute together.
That joke about the aliens.
"Mweep mweep mweep!"
Some serious flirting
Note Arcadia's sultry expression.
A great shot, if I do say so myself.
I think these two are going to be very good friends...
