Previously on 100 Days of Awesome : ANASTASIA (V.O.): A complete waste, I tell you. He’s squeaky clean. In terms of WTDs, I mean. Not in terms of wanting a ring on his finger first. ANASTASIA (V.O.): Well, okay, so it wasn’t a complete waste. If you know what I mean.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Hello, and welcome to 100 Days of Awesome , starring the made-of-Awesome Tsvirkunov family. They are currently running at nine objectives accomplished for nine days of trying, and if some of that involves the community lot rule, well, that’s perfectly legal. You may notice the new cover. That’s due to a change in the family composition. Hopefully, this cover will be around for a while yet. The 100 Days Challenge was created by Callista over at the old Boolprop, and the only change I’ve made is to decide that it’s okay for Sims to go to work or school.

PowerPoint Presentation:

GEORGIANA: Ma maaaaaa ! Wan ow noooooooow ! ANASTASIA: All right, all right. I’m getting up. Cool your jets, huh? GEORGIANA: Wan ow nooooooooow , Mama! Nooooooow !

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY: Why don’t I take over here, Anastasia? You can go back to sleep. ANASTASIA: But Georgie wants out. ABBEY: I’ll take care of her. You stay in your room. You can take care of today’s task. ANASTASIA: And what’s that? ABBEY: Someone needs a visit from the Social Bunny.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA: I only said yes because they promised that if I got the Social Bunny to visit, then I could do the community lot task too. Buy a cheap date and get it to a Dream Date? Pffffff… No problem!

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY: I usually ask for a community lot task at the same time as a regular task. I think it’s legal, as long as we do our best to complete the task. Sometimes I ask for an alternative, too. I mean, I know Anastasia is looking forward to a date, but I’m not sure you can call the matchmaker from a community lot. If it’s simply not possible, then our alternative task is to make friends with a service Sim. But we only use the alternative task if the original one is physically impossible. I want to be clear about that.

PowerPoint Presentation:

REBECCA: But Mom, what will we do if Anastasia doesn’t end up with a Social Bunny in time? ABBEY: Why wouldn’t she? REBECCA: How long does it take for a Social Bunny to show up? ABBEY: I don’t know, but how hard can it be? REBECCA: I don’t know either, but we don’t want to lose the point just because we’re overconfident.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY: You have a point. Let’s set a deadline. Say, nine p.m.? REBECCA: And then what? ABBEY: And then, if there’s still no Social Bunny, I’ll go to a community lot myself and try calling for a date. If that doesn’t work, I’ll… I’ll make friends with a service Sim. Somehow. REBECCA: But you’re so Shy, Mom! How are you going to manage that? Can’t I do it for you?

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY: I’ll be fine, sweetie, really. I’ll have twenty-four hours -- I’m sure I can manage something in that amount of time. And if dating is possible, you couldn’t do that. Which is the primary objective anyway. REBECCA: But -- PONG: No dating other people, Rebecca. Please? REBECCA: Oh, all right.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA: Going jogging for a few hours. Nice and solitary, and it’ll wear me out so I sleep and don’t see anybody. Don’t talk to me, okay?

PowerPoint Presentation:

ALLYN: While New Mom is out running, I’m going to teach Percy how to Come Here. ( to Percy ) Come! Come here, Percy! Come to me! Come on! Over here!

PowerPoint Presentation:

ALLYN: Yay! You made it over! Good dog! Good doggie! ( to Abbey ) Isn’t Percy smart? ABBEY: Yes, sweetie -- it only took ten minutes to respond. ALLYN: Are you being sarcastic? ABBEY: Sorry. I suppose your mom and your aunt are rubbing off on me. But if you keep it up, I’m sure Percy will learn. Would you like some dog treats to help with the training?

PowerPoint Presentation:

ALLYN: No thanks. Dog treats are for dogs that aren’t smart enough to figure things out. ( to Percy ) But you’re smarter than that, aren’t you? Good dog! Good doggie!

PowerPoint Presentation:

REBECCA: I think the whole “social isolation” thing is getting to Anastasia…

PowerPoint Presentation:

( Smoke alarm blares ) ANASTASIA (OFF): What’s going on? ABBEY (OFF): Everything’s fine! It’s safe! ANASTASIA (OFF): Can I come out and see? ABBEY (OFF): You stay in your room! ANASTASIA (OFF): What happened? ABBEY (OFF): Nice try, kiddo! We’re not talking to you anymore!

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA: It’s not fair. They all hate me. I hate being cooped up in here. Why can’t I go out and see people? ( sigh ) You know it’s bad when Mr. Brickles starts looking good…

PowerPoint Presentation:

PONG (V.O.): I wouldn’t have thought it would be that hard. I really wouldn’t. ABBEY (V.O.): Oooh, she’s yelling in the back yard! What’s she yelling about? REBECCA (V.O.): She doesn’t like the broken sprinkler, apparently. She’s being quite emphatic about it. Oh, now she’s hitting it with a hammer. PONG (V.O.): Where’d she get a hammer? REBECCA (V.O.): Search me. Mom, what time is it? ABBEY (V.O.): Ten p.m. ( sigh ) I guess I’d better get going, huh?

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY (V.O.): I borrowed Rebecca’s phone for the evening. I couldn’t call the matchmaker, but that why I went to Tropicana Too. It’s not my usual type of place, but it’s got both a deejay and a bartender. They’re service Sims, right?

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY (V.O.): Unfortunately, I couldn’t get near the bartender to have a conversation, and you can’t talk to the deejay while he’s deejaying. Note from esmeiolanthe: I fixed the not-matching bar and counter at the end of that particular gameplay session. Sorry!

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY (V.O.): But there’s more than one way to skin a cat, right? I just called up Descartes’ old boss, from when he worked a few shifts in the cafeteria in college. From when Descartes worked a few shifts, I mean. The boss still works there. It was kind of awkward, since I hadn’t seen him in, oooh, probably fifty years. And we kept having not-so-great conversations. But still…

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY (V.O.): Mission accomplished!

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA (V.O.): Mom promised that I could do the community lot task. I don’t think it was fair of her to go and do it herself.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA (V.O.): So the Social Bunny showed up at three in the morning, so what? These deadlines are completely ridiculous and arbitrary.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA (V.O.): So it’s only fair that I should get to do the next community lot task, right? Only it turns out to be a lot stupider than going on a date.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA (V.O.): I mean, “learn how to make a new meal”? Really? Who comes up with this stuff? What’s wrong with “make out with five different sims” or something?

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA (V.O.): At least I’m, ah, “friends” with the owner of the diner, so I can use their stove and stuff. And when I say “friends,” I mean [bleep] type of friends.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA (V.O.): There. Stupidest task ever, done.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA: Hey, this isn’t bad at all. I should cook more often, because I’m really good at it.

PowerPoint Presentation:

REBECCA: It’s been a pretty good day, actually. I gave Percy a bath, Pong helped Winifred with her homework, Anastasia got some gardening in, I’ve got some salmon going… It’s nice to have days like that sometimes.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY: Rebecca? Aren’t you going to take care of today’s task? REBECCA: Yeah, okay. As soon as I finish washing this pan. ABBEY: Maybe you should leave the pan for a minute. It’s just that it’s getting late, and I don’t want you to get distracted. REBECCA: 6:15 is late? Okay, I’ll handle it.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why do birds suddenly appear Every time you are near?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Just like me, they long to be Close to you. * REBECCA (V.O.): Easy peasy. *“(They Long To Be) Close To You,” recorded by the Carpenters

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY We really have been lucky with the tasks we’ve been set recently. With adequate preparation, we should be able to handle anything, but how do you know what to prepare for? But our latest task will be not only easy, but fun! Especially for the kids.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY: What kind of cake do you want this afternoon, Allyn? ALLYN: Can I have any kind I want? ABBEY: Of course you can! It’s your birthday. ALLYN: But it’s Georgie’s birthday too. ABBEY: She’ll have her own cake. ALLYN: Two cakes?! Oh boy!

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY (V.O.): It’s great to see the kids having so much fun planning. WINIFRED: What kind of cake are you going to get? ALLYN: I don’t know yet. One with lots of frosting, though. Like three inches of frosting. And maybe some sugar flowers. ABBEY (V.O.): Well, time to take care of today’s community lot task, I suppose.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY (V.O.): I’m supposed to give a townie a makeover, which is why I came to Makeshift Clothing. Well, that and because Allyn and Georgie are going to need some new clothes this afternoon. I know the business isn’t much to look at, but it’s got a vanity and a clothing rack, and what else does it need, really?

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY (V.O.): I’m sure a townie teen or a townie adult would be acceptable, and the only difference between them and a dormie is age.* I just hope the producers agree. ABBEY: You know, your look is a little contradictory. DORMIE: Yah? ABBEY: Well, the clothes say “free spirit,” but the hair says “the Man.” Would you maybe like a little help? DORMIE: Dude! *Note from esmeiolanthe: If any of my readers think that making over a dormie is cheating, please let me know and I’ll remove the point.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ABBEY: There, see? Now it’s more all of a piece. DORMIE: Dude, this is sweet! AABEY (V.O.): I did say we’d been lucky in our tasks, right?

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA (V.O.): They’re my kids, so I got to do the inviting. It was kind of a random selection of guests, though. I invited a friend of mine from college -- hadn’t seen her in too long, and people are always up for cake, right?

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA (V.O.): Georgie’s father, of course. He’s not real involved, and we’re both okay with that, but now that Georgie’s getting older, she has a right to decide if she wants to get to know him better.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA (V.O.): I also invited a couple of Allyn and Winifred’s friends. Georgie seemed more interested in them than in her dad. Well, that’s cool too.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA (V.O.): I just can’t believe Allyn’s a Teen now. ALLYN: Arrrgh, this outfit is terrible! New Mom, can I go change? Please please please? ANASTASIA: Sure. ALLYN: Thank you! ANASTASIA (V.O.): I’m not old enough to have a Teen. ANASTASIA (V.O.): No, really, I’m not. Do the math.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANASTASIA (V.O.): Still, it was a Good Party, and that’s all that matters. PONG (V.O.): All that matters is that it was a party. It didn’t have to be any good. ANASTASIA (V.O.): Are you saying that any party thrown by me would be anything less than a Good Party? PONG (V.O.): Er, no. No, of course not. ANASTASIA (V.O.): I didn’t think so.

PowerPoint Presentation:

PONG: Yes, I was. But don’t tell her that.
