Kammy Confronts Kevin

Hello, everybody, and welcome back. Well, I actually got enough sleep last night, which is a good thing...but the great big hole in the ceiling in my bathroom has started to leak again, which is definitely not good. Those of you who know me and my apartment based only on these posts probably wonder what kind of crappy dump I live in, but rest assured, it's not all as bad as the bathroom...

Our last post revealed the shocking news that Kevin Wilson moved out of the Wilson house into a place of his own, without bothering to tell anyone, even his girlfriend, Kammy. Incidentally, now that Kevin lives on his own, it's time for him to go by his own last name rather than carrying that of the Wilson family with him forever. Henceforth, Kevin Wilson is now known as Kevin Smith. No relationship to the director/comic buff, of course.

As we rejoin Kevin, we find him calling Kammy to invite her over to his new place. Of course, his timing is terrible, since by this point, Kitty had already told Kammy that Kevin was living a double life, and that he hadn't even bothered to invite her to his new place or his boring party. Kevin surely knew she'd have heard all that already and would be hating him, so he's either a glutton for punishment, or hoped to do some damage control with some serious sucking up.

Despite her dislike for Kevin's piggishness, Kammy is a determined woman, and she refused to give up on him. That, or she was determined to make his life miserable before doing so. Whatever the case, she accepted his invitation to visit his new digs, and arrived shortly after he called, with Corey the courier not far behind. Both of them had deliveries for Kevin.

Well, Kevin briefly greeted Kammy, then quickly ditched her to go talk to Corey the courier. That doesn't make a whole lot of sense, since Corey simply leaves packages on the lawn if he's not greeted, but I guess Kevin was going out of his way to be coy (or a butthead, however you want to call it). Kevin took delivery of a mysterious package from Corey, while Kammy was molested by a stinky stray cat haunting Kevin's front lawn.

Image hosting by PhotobucketKevin: "Well? Do you have a mysterious package for me, or not?"

Kevin invited Kammy inside finally, having decided apparently that she'd been subjected to enough neglect and abuse for the moment (I'm not sure that was his actual train of thought, but it's fun to assume the worst of everybody). I have no idea what was going through Kevin's mind at this point, but after all that had happened, he tried to put the moves on Kammy and lay a big smackaroo on her. Well, the results were least they were just what I was expecting. It's a wonder Kevin didn't see it coming.

Clearly, things were not going well. To the casual observer, it would appear that Kevin and Kammy may well be on the road to being finished. Kevin made a couple more attempts at romantic interaction, but Kammy wasn't having any of it. For that matter, she barely seemed interested in just chatting or watching his stupid puppet show. To make her point, Kammy headed back outside and started playing with the annoying cat rather than spending time with Kevin.

Image hosting by PhotobucketKammy: "I'd much rather spend time with the filthy stray cats than that dirty swine, Kevin!"

Yes, things were looking pretty grim, and we all know Kevin has no game and that he's always acted like he was terrified of commitment and doesn't have much going for him...I really don't need to say more on the subject, do I? Well, believe it or not, Kevin had a plan. Just when Kammy looked like she was ready to hit the road and say goodbye for good, Kevin revealed his secret weapon - he had a gift for Kammy. It wasn't a farewell gift, either...

Image hosting by PhotobucketKammy: "If it's a garden gnome, you may as well just forget it!"

Luckily for Kevin, it wasn't a garden gnome or lousy box of chocolates. No, it was the contents of his mystery package from Corey the courier...a diamond ring! Clearly everyone has underestimated Kevin and his scheming abilities. While everybody has been ignoring him, he's gone off and bought a home and made preparations for a proposal. He's been so sure of its success, he even threw the bachelor party already (that pitifully boring party in the last post), but will Kammy actually accept the proposal after all he's put her through in the process?

Image hosting by PhotobucketKevin: "Gumball machine? No, it's a real ring...a real diamond ring!"

Don't be stupid. Kammy has been waiting for like a jillion posts for Kevin to propose, and no matter how much of a shmuck he's been lately, there was no chance she was going to turn him down (kind of pathetic, eh?). I admit, I had my doubts whether this would be the time she would say yes, after all her rejection of his affection, but I guess I just don't know Kammy as well as I thought I did. Or maybe I do...

Image hosting by PhotobucketKevin: "Uh...did I just gain or lose a thousand dollars?"

Well, the whole proposal/marriage thing may have been a surprise to Kammy, but it wore off quickly, and she wasted no time inviting folks over to the Kevin/Kammy Smith residents for a formal celebration. At first, all of the Wilsons and Millers were there, but for some odd reason, when Kitty arrived, she informed the Smiths that it was much too late for Mia Kay to be there, and took her home (nice cover, but I think she just didn't want to be there).

Image hosting by PhotobucketKeri: "No, I'm serious, JD...that green suit goes great with your do-rag!"

I don't really blame Kitty all that much for leaving...aside from giving everyone a chance to wear formal attire (much of which was pretty ugly), there really wasn't much going on at the party besides food and chatting. Nobody really spent too much time talking to Kevin or Kammy either, which I found kind of odd, but those silly sims never quite seem to grasp the actual purpose of these social engagements.

Image hosting by PhotobucketPeter: "They better get a patio light out here, or somebody could just walk off with this hot tub!"

It was kind of strange that nobody got in the hot tub, given how much they all love to do that at home. Maybe everyone was afraid that if they got in, then changed back into their regular clothes, they'd have to risk grabbing something even more hideous out of Kevin's trunk of clothes. Or, maybe they were just so dang bored of the hot tub after doing little else at home that the idea was repulsive. Who knows? Peter's gift to the newlyweds was breaking their sink and starting a flood in the kitchen. Kevin stood around and looked annoyed.

Image hosting by PhotobucketKevin: "My green suit is NOT ugly looking! Take that back, Stu!"

Well, all good things must come to an end, and the party was no exception (there wasn't even any cake this time...yeesh). Folks started to take off, and Kevin and Kammy finally got their first moment together as the new Mr. and Mrs. Smith (which they would have had sooner if Kammy hadn't had to brag about her marriage with the party). Eventually, Kevin will have to explain where he got the money to pull off the whole house and engagement ring buying thing, but for now, that can wait...

Image hosting by PhotobucketKammy: "I knew that @#$% Kevin would propose sooner or later...!"

Well, the party wasn't over for everyone. Keri Wilson discovered the DJ table out back on her way out, and refused to leave without shaking her stuff a little bit. The party might have been a little more exciting if the table had been turned on while everyone else was still around, but maybe that was intentional, and Kevin was trying to make things boring so folks wouldn't stay too long. If that was the plan, he did a very good job.

Image hosting by PhotobucketKeri: "This would be even more fun if they would get some lights out here...!"

Once everyone had taken off, Kevin and Kammy sat down in their uncomfortable formal wear, and wrote letters to their sim friends and family that you never get to see who live outside the MonkeeSims neighborhood. I'm no expert on the subject, but I think most newlywed couples save the boring letter writing stuff for a few days after the wedding, and just try to relax and have fun for a while first. Well, not Kevin. Way to go, Tiger!

Image hosting by PhotobucketKammy: "Dear Mom and Dad...Well, that @#$% Kevin finally proposed...!"

Well, it's a shame to have to put that whole "that @#$% Kevin better propose" line to rest, as it gave me a good caption to use for all those Kammy pictures I didn't have anything else to go with, but the happiness of my sims comes first (usually). Maybe we can replace it with something similar like "that @#$% Kevin better get a job" or "that @#$% Kevin better give me some kids." Guess I'll just have to chew on that one for a bit. For now, though, all is well. When we pick up next time, we'll follow Kevin and Kammy on their first date outside their home (which they had to wait until they were married to go on). See you then!
