Anniversary – Outtakes You Haven’t Seen

Filed under: Anniversary — Mao @ 11:27 am

So, I thought it’d be fun to try and find some outtakes that maybe I didn’t include at the end of updates.  I’m not in the practice of taking amusing pictures.  I keep all my pictures and taking too many unnecessary pictures can just clutter things up, fast.  I’m more of a “practical” picture taker.  I do the same with storytelling, only take what I need… but there are some here that I’m not sure if you’ve seen or not.  It’s hard to say what propelled me to take them!

The first couple were taken with my xfire account, so the quality might be iffy.

This is hilarious for obvious reasons. One from the way-back machine. Derek thinks preggo Janine is pretty smokin'!

Ah, envy... it's a terrible thing! Looks like Roger Yu wishes he could cut off a piece of that Eileen O`Hanlon instead of Sun-Tzu!

This disturbed me on so many levels. Ryu is completely oblivious, waving happily, and Henry seems not to notice, either. This was all an accident. It must be nice living in a bubble!

Janine flips things around and this time, she makes inappropriate gestures at Ryu. Sheesh!

Damien makes it pretty obvious what he values in a woman.

Really, Janine? Your wants were so random!

Annnnd the Ryu thing is explained... three bolts? Yeow!

The nanny is quite obviously trying to get Lady killed and in front of the children, no less!

Kate and Tracey went at it a few times, I didn't put this in updates. Kate just didn't seem the type in text.

Or how about the time Florence let her dislike of Shang fully known? They went at it in the livingroom! Of course, Shaniqua cheers for her romance counterpart.

River made this hilarious face and I can't at all remember why. It was just funny!

See that text box? That's xfire. My friend, Christina, is infamous for ruining my shots! Don't even get me started about when I'm taking pictures for Angel of Lies. This is usually followed by "OMG CHRISTINA!" Love you, Christina, LOL! <3 <3

Lacie gives me the, "I'll be back!" look. No, no you won't. See ya, sister!

The Sims 2 are much like British television, they don't balk at a little T&A. Seriously, ladies, how can you miss what's going on behind you?!

Claude's daftness reaches new levels as he makes a goofy face prior to being turned! You'd think he'd know better. Sigh.

I'm pretty sure this is simlish for "freak'um dress"... rofl.

Poor Charity gets burned thanks to her twin brother, Alexander's, love for pranks!

The Unsavory Charlatan is none too pleased at Zhou's apparent copying of his own tailored outfit!

Poor Claude, no wonder he's so daft... he's spent his life going, "I don't see this, I don't see this..."

A picture of the hood as it grew from 4/28/08. That seems like forever ago!

I hope you enjoyed–I wish I had more to offer.  I went through all my old photos and some of the new ones, too.  I tried to find ones I was sure I hadn’t shown, but given how long it’s been and how many updates I’ve done… I probably did show you some repeats.  Sorry about that!

I’m still going to do something else, because to me, this isn’t enough.  I wish I wasn’t terrible at this stuff.  Anyway, there’s more stuff coming throughout the month.  I’m trying to take the suggestions given and spin them in a way that works for me.  If you have anything you’d like to see, please feel free to say so in commments.  I’m still open to suggestions.  You guys are what make this fun!  So feel free to be demanding.  ;)


  1. Cute pictures, I remember the original families. Wow, time has passed so quickly.

  2. Wow, you really did go back. Good stuff.

  3. LOL, this was great! Such a blast from the past seeing some of your original Sims – Janine, Roger, Eileen, Sun-Tzu!

    My favourite one is the picture of Lacie, though it’s the caption that makes it.

    River looks like she’s doing “homework face” – I’m pretty sure I have a picture of my Maia doing the exact same thing!

  4. I’ve never seen any of these! These are really from the way back machine, but I love them! Janine was really a hoot, in ways we didn’t even know. And the third picture disturbed me as much as it disturbed you.

  5. It’s pretty insane to think it’s been TWO years!

  6. It took me forever, but I had fun looking over all the old images. Made me miss a few sims!

  7. LOL, you know, you’re right. I hadn’t even realized she was sitting!

  8. Yay! I’m glad it was a worthwhile endeavor. I enjoyed it. :D

  9. Ha, I love the one with the nanny! That’s classic. And gross, Janine! He’s only a child! I love outtakes like this, especially because your blog is so well-formed in terms of storyline. Sometimes I forget that you’re making these stories with the same game I’m playing, so the break-down of the fourth wall (or however you want to put it) is really neat. Also, awww, I miss Sun-Tzu. Happy anniversary, BS! I love this blog!

  10. It’s funny, because this isn’t even a storytelling blog. Sometimes I invite sims over, but the storylines/etc are all just interpretations of gameplay actions or wants or something ridiculous a sim does! I don’t really stage things unless completely necessary. Gameplay always comes first, LOL! Which is why it is mostly unrealistic, crazy soap opera action. ;)

  11. Well, you know what they say…pregnant women give off a glow.

    And you know how brothers are. Always want what the other one has. Tsk tsk.

    Oh, Jun. xD Only you could make out with one dude, in the presence of another guy you’re boinking and your child and get away with it.

    BOOBIES! :D is what Damien is thinking of.

    That nanny is so evil!

    I think River was pottytraining someone while making that face. Sims make those faces whenever they do it xD

    LACIE! I almost forgot about her xD

    THAT UNSAVORY CHARLATAN! I just installed BV and my sim just got jacked by him so grrr. I want Zhou to kick his ass.

    Here’s to more memories! :D

    Comment by Elecy — February 14, 2010 @ 3:37 pm

  12. Haha, I had a lot of fun looking back! I hope you all do, too. :)

    And Zhou would totally kick his butt ten ways to China!

  13. Happy Anniversary to Boreal Springs! That’s neat seeing all of your founders, since I don’t think I was reading way back at the beginning except to read backwards for the history. I think I got hooked when Lilith and Tsung were teenagers :)

    Loved the outtakes! And lol, what’s Zhou doing in that outfit anyway???

    Comment by laura — February 15, 2010 @ 12:07 pm

  14. Thanks, Laura! Wow, that seems like so long ago even though I know it wasn’t. Lilith was one of my favorites–what a good time to start reading. ;)

    LOL! It’s the top of career outfit for the Entertainment career track, isn’t it hilarious??

    Comment by Mao — February 15, 2010 @ 12:40 pm

  15. Nice! You have so many funny things going on in your hood! I remember the original families too, my, how Boreal Springs has grown!

    Comment by Tessa — February 15, 2010 @ 4:22 pm

  16. Thanks! My sims like to keep things dramatic and yet amusing apparently! ;)

    Comment by Mao — February 15, 2010 @ 5:16 pm

  17. Happy Anniversary, Boreal Springs, that is a side of things we don’t usually see!

  18. Thanks!
