Now we meet our third family: The Ramaswamis. Sanjay (Pop/For, Become Rock God) and Priya (Pop/Kno, Become Media Magnate) are newly married and deeply in love.
Priya opens a clothing store called White Lotus Boutique. It is immediately wildly popular and reaches Rank 1 on the first day.
Sanjay sinks most of the rest of their money into a music venue called Three-Quarter Time--thereby opening an unlimited number of positions in the Music track. He takes one of those positions. (I thought it only fair that he quit and start over at the bottom, since he didn't start the music venue until after he arrived in town.)
On Tuesday morning, several good things happen. First, Three-Quarter Time reaches Rank 1. Then White Lotus reaches Rank 3 and gets a good review from the man in the ugly yellow shirt.
On Wednesday, there is more good news: Priya is pregnant! (It took several tries.)
In less fortunate news, Sanjay is fired due to a bad chance card. His bad luck is short-lived, since he finds another job as a record store clerk Thursday morning.
Some boring stuff happens, and then Anand is born on Friday afternoon.
On Saturday, the boutique reaches Rank 4.
The same day, Sanjay is promoted to coffee shop sound engineer--his second attempt at the Music career is going well.
Shortly thereafter, Anand becomes a toddler. His personality is 5-9-5-5-6 (Leo).
In the wee hours of Monday morning, Sanjay's club reaches Rank 4.
Progress toward challenge:
Jobs opened: Unlimited Music
New community lots: 2
New Sims: 1
Taxes collected: $3500/$10,800 (I think I mistakenly taxed them 10% instead of 5%. Oh well.)
