15.2 Norman - Forgotten Facts

Week 15.2 – Norman

The Norman family is of Norwegian origin and consists of:
Odd Norman, Popularity/Family, LTW 2 – 20 pet BFs . He works in the Business career as a Senior Manager. Owner of Ekte Norsk, toy store – level 10
Patricia Norman, Popularity/Romance, LTW Captain Hero. She works in the Law Enforcement career as a Police Chief
Lise Norman, teen, Fortune, LTW Worldclass ballet dancer, which has to wait until Kaylynn Maryland can get her dance saloon to level 5.
Morten Norman, teen, Knowledge, LTW Media Magnate. He works in the Journalism career

The net value for Ekte Norsk is 74.886§ and for the residence lot 138 631§, which adds up to 21.351§ in weekly tax. It’s less than last week, maybe the house needs some upgrading.

We start with Morten, booty calling Evelina Stolt.

They are very much in love

However, we find in our notes that this is a very controversial union. We had completely forgot that Evelina’s mother Zarah is Morten’s cousin

We have forgotten many things, for example that Lise is pregnant. Looking back through our notes we find that Ivo Boston is the father. So he IS a player!

Odd comes home promoted to Vice President

When the school uniform doesn’t fit her anymore, Lise goes to school in her formal wear

Morten reaches the top of the teen career in Journalism by becoming an internet film critic

Patricia and Odd are promoted to Captain Hero (LTW) and President respectively. Patricia now wishes to become a Media Magnate, but it  will not happen

Instead she grows up well to elder

It’s celebrated by a pyjama family dinner together with Patricia’s best friend Tove

Then it’s time for a visit to the family business Ekte Norsk. But instead of raising the staff’s lousy salaries or helping the customers, Odd and Patricia have some public woohoo on the sofa.

As compensation, both Celeste and Putte gets new salaries and are now overpaid. That will hopefully keep them happy for a while

The toys are flying off the shelves and Celeste and Patricia work hard to prepare new ones. The problem is that they don’t’ have the skills to make the best toys, only Audhild knew how. Anyway, to not lose stock so quickly, the prices are raised from ridiculously cheap to cheap, maybe that will help without decreasing the level of the store.

Back home it’s time for the baby

It’s a blond girl with brown eyes, the same colours as Patricia has (had) and she gets the name Bente. She raises the population score of Birka to 10.109 inhabitants.

Everybody loves the baby, including Zarah Stolt, who is visiting her aunt Patricia and her cousins Morten and Lise

And we confirm that Ivo Boston is Bente’s father.

Odd is promoted to CEO.

And also he takes the opportunity to welcome Bente to the family.

Lise has decided that she likes Usko Ottomas better than Ivo Boston

He is probably a better choice in the long run, being family and all

We have love!

And look, he’s even interested in the baby! He’s a keeper!

Lise invites her big brother Frode to Bente’s birthday party. Frode lives with his uncle next door and is heir to the Maine house. He was born before Patricia and Odd were married.

Bente grows up to toddler and looks very much like a Picaso!

Her young Fortune mother quickly teaches her to talk and walk, under the watchful eyes of the ancestors

Patricia goes grocery shopping in her Captain Hero uniform. The service at Walfridsson’s Kolonial is not the best today, but eventually she’s allowed to pay and can head home.

It’s time for Odd to grow up well to elder

Bente and Lise become best friends

And then it’s time for a busy day at Ekte Norsk again.

Odd’s infamous sister Vigdis comes to the store. Lise eyes her aunt suspiciously.

She really doesn’t do anything, but she disapproves of the store. How rude, it was your family who established this place!

Back home, Lise dates Usko and they decide to go steady. They are so cute together in their shyness!

Odd and Bente become best friends

J68 has decided that since Lise is a Fortune sim with an LTW that cannot be started yet, she will earn her money by starting a new business. She wants to become a Worldclass Ballet Dancer, but the Dance career is not open yet. The dance studio needs to reach level 5 first. She buys the internet café Inter@ctive for almost all the money the family’s got.

She brings Morten with her the first time she goes there.

They play some video games

And they witness the breakdown of family sim Ella Ottomas. Wonder what happened to her? Another forgotten story.

Back home it’s time for Bente’s next birthday. Her father Ivo is invited for the first time.

It’s the first time she meets her father and she talks about music with him. She looks so much like him, it’s ridiculous!
In Sweden we say “You can’t swear yourself off of that one!” It’s pretty clear who is this girl’s father!

And we end this update with Bente becoming best friends with her grandmother Patricia at the same time as she gets scared by her great-grandfather Tobias.

Next - Maine!

The main family is cute, but Vigdis is such a troublemaker, she even shows up to criticize the family business! As we say around here, "it's a sick bird that shits in its own nest." Wonder who raised her so badly. ^_^ She must be pretty old by now, anyway. I guess we'll see when we come to her household.

Yeah, Vigdis will probably become an elder too this round, but I'm not sure. I don't remember how old she is (another forgotten fact :))

Looks like things are going well here. How close is Lise to becoming an adult? At least you wont have Bente skipping her teenage years like Rut did since she was born in a regular neighborhood.

Lise and Morten are twins and they will be adults next round. Since we have no Uni here we won't have any "Ruts", but on the other hand, the teen years are like twice as long as in Mattsmyra, so the risk of teen pregnancies is higher!

Pyjama family dinners are the best! It's nice seeing all the Normans doting on little Bente :)

Odd is getting close - reminds me, when I don't know what to do with a Sim, hello!, put 'em in Business. I have several Sims I expect will become Tycoons in Week 6.

Every business tycoon plus a number of community lots give another business district, which increases population. That's why I started putting everybody in Business. I had forgotten that too until I started this round, but now I have re-learnt it so Business it is :)
