Warnings: woohoo, smustling, cheating, and the return of Rowena De Hommel.
Wednesday, Day 10
“Do The Smustle”
Diego Bossanova — the heart-fart king of Oceanside — is up at dawn raring to go for his first day at his dream job. Last season Diego finally maxed his dance enthusiasm and entered the Dance career!
His first position is as an aerobics instructor. With Diego’s moves he’ll have these housewives and househusbands in shape in no time.
After his first day at work Diego is promoted.
Diego takes ownership of his brand new studio — Diego’s Dance Academy!
New resident Rocky Kotsomiti stops by to read Diego’s newspaper. He matches the house beautifully.
After a quick shower…
Diego is off to visit his new studio.
Diego’s Dance Academy is located in a small studio space at the end of Oceanside Blvd.
It’s pretty small but Diego is confident he will have plenty of room to teach his students.
The first group of people start to arrive but, of course, I put the ticket machines the wrong way and in too small a space that no one is able to buy tickets!
Beckett: Bad design hurts my brain!
Leave me alone OK! I never used these dumb machines before!
Diego’s not worried. He knows his friends will show up for the grand opening… eventually.
Politician Malcolm Landgraab, X is the first official dance student of the DDA.
Diego proudly displays his first simoleon!
I finally moved the ticket machines to an easier-to-get-to location and chef George Lambswool is the second official dance student.
Today’s lesson: How to Smustle!
The smustle is a complicated dance but after a few tries the guys get the hang of it.
Nanny Angie Killeen joins in and is adorably lost!
Malcolm’s stench soon offends everyone. The smustling lesson comes to an end for the day.
Thursday, Day 11
Wait… Why do we have the Law & Order title screen and music again?
*gasp* No — It can’t be!
Rowena: Oh yes, it can! It is I, Rowena De Hommel, cat burglar extraordinaire!
*Must resist the urge to put her in a Catwoman suit*
Don’t know if it was his Spidey-sense tingling or his hot-girl-on-my-lawn sense, but Diego woke right up.
Rowena: He won’t attack me. I’m too pretty!
Think again vivacious villain!
Although it appeared that Diego had the upper hand, Rowena De Hommel won the fight… again!
And yet again she runs away into the night empty-handed.
Rowena: And I would’ve gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for you meddling kids!
Diego returns to his bed and tries to sleep the rest of the night safe in the fact that Rowena will not return any time soon.
When Diego wakes up he is still shaking from what happened. Some hot chick tried to break into his house! Then she tried to kill him!
He wouldn’t be able to enjoy his cornflakes — not with a killer thief out there! Why would anyone want to kill him? Everyone loves Diego, right?
Diego knows that he could always add to his already ~charming~ personality. So in order to get more students in the dance class he practices schmoozing in the mirror.
Diego’s bestie Sadie Biltmore walks by and Diego runs out to greet her. Lately Diego has been watching Sadie have a tough time. He hopes he can cheer her up enough so she forgets all about Flour Sack Baby.
Sadie loves gossip so Diego gives her the latest.
Diego: You know that little Miss Perfect, Becca Goodacre? The one that’s always telling us how woohoo is a sin?
Sadie: *tee hee* Yeah?
Diego: I hear she gets drunk on nectar every night and passes out in her pig pen!
Sadie: *gasp* OM Watcher! I am totes putting that in my diary!
THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN AT ALL!!
Diego then proceeds to tickle Sadie until she’s crying. Yep, that’s the way to cheer her up. *rolls eyes*
Sadie’s mood has improved tremendously thanks to Diego. No sign of Flour Sack Baby anywhere!
Unfortunately Sadie cannot escape her terrible morning sickness.
Diego suggests that they relax in the hot tub. Maybe the jets can help her forget her troubles at home. Sadie is done talking about her own kids but wants to know how Diego is doing with his daughter Cyan. Has he had a chance to spend any time with her?
Diego is still stunned that he even has a daughter. He thought for sure that the whole soda in the woohoo didn’t work but now he’s a believer. From now on he always uses soda!
Diego then tells Sadie about the burglar he valiantly fought off in the middle of the night. He wasn’t scared, he tells Sadie, but he really hopes she doesn’t come again!
Sadie let’s Diego know that once the police station is up and running he will be able to get an alarm that will alert her of intruders in the house. Then she will be over right away to catch this evil villain.
Diego says goodbye to Sadie and heads to work.
*Hopefully we won’t see any more Crazy Sadie episodes now!*
As Diego’s leaving he spots Garden Club member Heaven Gallo on his lawn. Boy does he wish she came by earlier. Heaven is a looker!
After work Diego returns to the mirror for more practice.
Then he’s off to bed.
Friday, Day 12
“Don Juan Diego”
Diego spends his early morning staring off into the ocean. The dancing of the waves inspire him to come up with new moves.
So he heads down to the studio.
He adds the music and dance plaque to the studio’s wall to give the impression he’s a dance expert. He also removes the barres that were in the middle of the floor so there is more dancing room.
While Diego warms up at the barre…
Sadie and mail lady Brodie Mason gather outside. Diego has been trying to hook up with Brodie for an eon. He’s glad she stopped by.
The dance studio also attracts Heaven. Maybe Diego can “convince” her to take some lessons *wink, wink*
Brodie buys a ticket while Sadie is still unconvinced that she should pay for Diego’s “talents.”
Diego heads outside and introduces himself to Heaven. They both get along wonderfully.
Selena: Oh hi guys, whatcha doing?! Don’t mind me. I’m just Diego’s sister, salting his game!
While Diego’s talking to Heaven, Brodie shakes her butt all over the dance floor.
She’s quickly joined by Diego.
Brodie has some moves!
Brodie remembers back when she had a huge crush on Diego. She’s happy with Kendrick but Diego is looking mighty fine right now on the dance floor.
Heaven buys a ticket and hopes for a private with Diego. Selena passes. Some supportive sister you are!
Heaven joins them and tries her best to keep up with the pros. Poor Heaven needs a lot more lessons. Hopefully she can get Diego to pay attention to her.
WHAT THE HECK!
Rowena: *creeps by* So, he also has a dance studio… I’ll remember that.
DON’T ROB THIS PLACE TOO!!!
Diego diverts his attention to Heaven, much to her delight.
Heaven soon leaves to attend to very important Garden Club stuff.
Which leaves Diego alone with Brodie to work on some “special” moves.
Diego has always felt that he missed out on being with Brodie. Kendrick kind of swept in and took her away before they really had a chance. Maybe now she’s having second thoughts?
The dancing stops when Diego sees Minka outside. Right now doctor Minka Yomoshoto is Diego’s main girl but you never know what could happen…
Natural Scientist Yasmin Onnen buys a ticket and proceeds to show Brodie what she’s working with. Unimpressed Brodie is unimpressed.
*sigh* Diego, this one needs ALL of your attention!
However Diego is too busy flirting with his lady, as Brodie leaves, to help our fair maiden.
Diego loves all of his ladies and he has room in his heart for so many more.
Diego tries to give Yasmin some dancing pointers but Yaz would rather flail around by herself.
Minka finally finds her way inside the studio and learns some new moves from her boyfriend.
Minka even executes the “Bend It Like Brodie” move — and she’s 2 days pregnant! You go, Minka!
All of the fast dancing leads to slow dancing. Minka likes the slow dancing.
Noelee: Do I get some of that with my purchase?
Noelee Andews‘ dancing is just as bad as her girlfriends!
Diego closes for the day and heads home. Even though he had a great time with Minka another lady is on his mind.
As soon as he gets home he heads for the phone.
Diego: Hey, do you think you can sneak away for a little while? I’ll cook dinner?
*gasp* Brodie! No!!!
Diego prepares shrimp gumbo which is quickly becoming an island favorite.
Brodie, a much better cook than Diego, helps him with the recipe. But Diego is only half listening. He’s too busy staring at Brodie’s pretty face.
Dinner goes well and after a few glasses of nectar both Diego and Brodie are having a great time.
Diego resumes where they left off at the studio with their slow dance “lesson.” Brodie tells herself that a little harmless flirting won’t hurt. Nothing more will happen between herself and Diego. He is looking really good tonight, though…
Diego goes in for the kiss and Brodie lets him. It’s just a kiss. It doesn’t mean anything… does it?
Quickly it became more than just a kiss.
HOW WERE THEY STILL BEST FRIENDS?
Saturday, Day 13
“Just A Gigolo”
Up at dawn, Diego tidies up the yard before he’s fined by the Garden Club.
And pays rent to his brother-in-law.
Diego’s ex Matisse Troubadour stops by and he’s happy to see her. Even though Matisse tried to kiss him last time he saw her, they eventually had a good time together. It felt like old times.
Diego tells Matisse about the harrowing experience he had with burglar Rowena.
Diego: …and I almost died!
Angie: I’m so not listening to this crap.
Matisse must have a soft spot for men that almost died because she woohoos Diego immediately after! I almost didn’t catch it.
He’s so late for work that Diego has to run to catch his ride!
Diego’s ego is big enough to think he could nail it. Of course he volunteers.
*Giggle* Shakey Shakum!
And with the loss of the body skill goes the loss of a chance for a promotion.
Beat, Diego goes straight to bed.
Notes: Technically Diego’s dance studio wasn’t supposed to be built in the main hood — it is supposed to go in the Business District. But… you know… I do what I want 😛
You know I’ve been waiting for FOREVER to use that Taylor Swift gif. *tee-hee*
Ok, Diego is not my favorite sim (since he smacked Matisse around) but I had to play him anyway. I’m upset that Brodie and Matisse woohooed him like it was nothing and Minka’s all gaga over him. He needs to go! He’s corrupting all of my ladies! Maybe a tragic accident should befall him…
Thank you for reading! ^.^
