Really too aggravated with life to write anything of much worth. I have, however, been easing my sorrows by screwing up the lives of my Sims.
Dramatowne is a neighborhood I created just for that - to turn the Sims' lives who live there into a sordid mess that would make any daytime TV slot happy. So far, it's been a success.
There a few families that you'll meet in Dramatowne. I'll tell you about them, since I'll likely be posting their exploits here for you to read when I'm low on content.
The Bradley Family
Dramatowne's religious right. The father is a local priest, and closet-'ho. The identical twin daughters are the perfect match of Good and Evil.
The Montalbano Family
Dramatowne's hottest single gal. Juliana Montalbano is the daughter of Dramatowne's former mayor. She's single - and loving it.
The Bordas Family
Dramatowne's unwed mother. Charlotte Bordas once hung out with her best friend and fellow party-girl, Juliana Montalbano, every night. Now she smells of spoiled baby milk rather than SinScents #7, and the only nights she's still awake at dawn are those that baby Amelia is teething.
The Strumpet Family
Dramatowne's dysfuntional nuts. Edward Strumpet met his wife in a strip club - Big Bubba's Boobie Barn to be exact. Edward still "gets around", however, and Vivian isn't the brighest Crayon in the box. Their son, Richard, appears to be turning out to be a raging queen.
The Bliss Family
Dramatowne's party girl. Mira Bliss was born for one thing - to party; and wish she could kiss girls. Even though Charlotte no longer parties with she and Juliana, it hasn't slowed the remaining two down from painting Dramatowne red. The truth is, Mira is madly in love with Juliana. She wonders if she'll ever be able to share her true feelings with Dramatowne's man-lover.
The Cheater Family
Dramatowne's lower life forms. Gerald Cheater plans to someday win back the title of Crime Boss of Dramatowne - one that was taken from his father many years ago. In the meantime, he's busy trying to raise a family with the hot bitch of a wife he won in a poker bet and their little girl. Paloma, his hot bitch of a wife, however, is busy trying to start a fling with every penis-bearing Sim in Dramatowne. The truth? She doesn't know who Michelle's father is.
That's just a few...more to come, promise. In the interim, why don't you take a minute to read the beginning saga of two Dramatowne families - the Strumpets and the Cheaters.
The very first installment of The Dramatowne Dish:

Sorry I haven't been around much - been busy. I know, I know, same old song & dance.
I have been tinkering around on a new project, though. You all know I'm a bitch, and that I love to bash on celebrities because, well, they aren't real people. So I created this:
Ya know...just because. Check it out, enjoy, contribute, whatever.
Hope everyone had a happy Turkey-day. Gobble, gobble and all that.
Off to have my first Sunday mimosa.

Last night my best friend, Nodnarb, and I were discussing the weird quirks of the sound machine he'd gotten me for my birthday, and I introduced him to The God Warrior.
Today, these emails ensued:
Dear God Warrior:
After review of your appliance we have determined that your sound machine is indeed possessed and should be brought to the nearest church for an exorcism. Only a dark sided thing would have a volume knob with a mind of its own.
In Jesus' name, get that thing out of your house.
Dearest Summer Solstice,
Like clothes dryers, I believe you are 100% correct that my sound machine is dark-sided. Perhaps it is the work of gargoyles, but as I was falling asleep last nite, the machine turned itself down so low that you could not hear it. I turned it up a little and it sounded *normal* (not dark-sided) for the first time since the first few days I used it.
Where should I bring such an instrument of evil?
If you need to return it, you would want to go to your nearest Bed, Bath, and Beyond the Dark Side. I don't know if I still have the receipt, but I'm sure they'll do an exchange for you.

After hearing about the God Warrior on Trading Spouses from Amber's blog, I realized that maybe - just maybe - I need to start watching reality TV. What a freakin' hoot.
God Warrior, eh? More like Psycho Hose Beast for the Lord.
This woman is nutso; I've been showing the video to everyone. There's also a God Warrior doll on sale at Ebay; apparently endorsed by the GW herself.
At least she can laugh at herself - gotta respect that. But...damn.

Is it just me, or do you, too, feel people are seriously insulting your intelligence when they send you crap like this?:
Don't laugh at this! Just do it!
My best friend just did this, this morning, wished for her promotion and just got a call and she got it.
Start thinking something you really really want, cause this is astounding. the person that sent this to me said their wish came true 10 mins after they read the mail so I thought what the heck.
You have just been visited by Dr.Suess's Cat in the Hat. He will grant you one wish.
Make your wish when the count down is over.
MAKE A WISH
Send this to 10 people within the hour you read this. If you do, your wish will come true! . If you don't it will become the opposite.
I mean, PLEASE!

While it may no longer be a hot topic in the news, the nightmare is far from over for thousands of people in southeastern Louisiana.
Please don't forget about them.

Tuesday, November 15th, 2005
The weekend was wonderful, if not a bit hectic.
Friday night we went to my friend, Lauren's, for her birthday party - and to fix their computer. Saturday we went to Baret's friend's to watch the LSU game (and though I'm not that into football, I have to admit, it was a damn good game).
Sunday we got to relax (though I spent the better part of it recovering from a hangover), and I played some major World of Warcraft. I'm all into it again - letting go of my Sims 2 obsession, which is all I've been playing for a few months. In WoW, I have an Undead Warlock, Vitoria, I'm trying to get to 20 - she's 18 now so we're almost there.
It looks as if we're going to get our hours cut at work. Apparently most state agencies are going to cut 4 hours out of every work week (they have little choice since Blanco cut $341 million from state agencies to help with the hurricane debt) - that's 8 hours a paycheck. It's going to suck ass, but what are you going to do? You just don't realize how far-reaching the effects of these hurricanes can be until something like this happens. Things in Louisiana are going to be fucked for a long time to come.
Oh, and not to be a sell-out or anything, but note the little green & white link on the bottom right there? Totally awesome and affordable jewelry - and I only posted it and joined up because, holy shit, I love the damn site and thought some of you might, too. I've spent over $100 on jewelry so far - pretty insane when you consider it's all $5.99! But I can vouch for the pieces; I love everything I've gotten - the stones are real and the jewelry is truly lovely. I've never had "nice" jewelry; just the teenish-crap I bought at stores like Claire's and Icing. So, just thought I'd share.
