Girls Girls Girls

Tom: Hi I'm Tom Googler.

Trix: And I'm Trix! We have six kids! And I'm home!

Tom: You certainly are. Welcome home Trixie!

Trix: I told you, don't call me that on camera!

Tom: Sorry. But I am happy you're home and things are back to normal.

Trix: So I came back home from that awful "Trading Spouses" experience, and the house was a disaster!

Tom: It wasn't that bad. Lots of people have dusty baseboards in the basement.

Trix: Not me!

Tom: We did make one change in our household based on our experiences. Some of our regular helpers decided that we didn't need them any more -

Trix: Did they ask me how they could continue helping me? Nooooo!

Tom: - so we got a family helper now. Peggy is going to help us around the house with a few small chores.

Trix: The kids love her, she's just like family. Except that she's still speaking with us.

Tom: Our actual family members have decided that they don't want to be involved with the show.

Trix: And since the show is our lives, and our lives are the show, there you go. You can stop emailing us to ask where the grandparents are, thank you. They don't know how to help. Peggy does.

Tom: Anyways, Trix was unhappy with a lot of things when she came back.

Trix: Tom gained 40 pounds! Apparently all they ate was tater tot casserole and orange ice cream. Just like a man.

Tom: So I've joined a gym.

Trix: And I never realized how quickly Tom was losing his hair until I came back. You can see what a baldy he's becoming. It's really impacting his self-esteem.

Tom: Thanks Trix. And thanks for the hat to cover my emasculating baldness.

Trix: Aw honey!

Tom: The kids were happy to see their mother again.

Trix: The producers had an idea of something for us girls to do. They set up an appointment for us to go to a pottery studio. Imagine, me driving with FOUR girls at the same time! I never thought it was possible to handle FOUR children at the same time by myself! I was amazed that I could drive somewhere with FOUR children!

Tom: Imagine!

Trix: Tom, hurry up and put the little girls in the van for me. Quit ironing your shirt and help me!

Tom: Yes dear.

Trix: Do you have to do that instead of helping me? I have to drive to a strange town with FOUR children!

Tammy: My friend Kristy's mom drives with more girls than that all the time, with her soccer team.

Trix: Does Kristy's mom have TWO sets of multiples? I don't think so. It's not the same. I have six kids, SIX! Seven if you count your father.

Trix: I don't like messy activities at all, not me. I wasn't looking forward to painting pottery at all. But when we got to the studio and I seen all that there was to paint, I had a brilliant idea!

Trix: You can paint things for me! Won't that be fun, girls?

Tammy: I wanted to paint a cat.

Trix: You can paint a cat on a platter! And Tricia can paint something on this sugar bowl! And Tara can paint these tea cups and Tracey can paint this bowl! And I can use these things that you painted for me!

Tammy: How about I paint a tea pot -

Trix: Great!

Tammy: - for Daddy? An Asian tea pot because we're the most Korean.

Trix: ... well, I'm sure daddy will share with Mommy.

Tammy: We had a lot of fun at the pottery studio.

Tricia: We wore free aprons and were allowed to be messy!

Trix: I know that I like things a certain way and it bothers the children. so I totally ignored them and focussed on painting my vase, so that they could make a mess.

Tom: How is that doing something with your daughters?

Trix: Hello, they were painting stuff for me! Only Tracey wasn't doing a very good job of painting something I could use.

Tricia: Look, she put her handprints all over the bowl. That's cute!

Trix: Oh Tracey. Oh my heck. Um, you paint the bottom of the bowl, and I'll help you with the rest, okay?

Trix: So I, um, distracted her, and I painted all over her handprints so that that bowl would be something I could display in my home.

Tom: Did you help the other girls?

Trix: No, I did not. Even though Tara painted a purple horse. How dumb is that? But Tricia painted somethng that looked like real art. I was so surprised!

Tom: After the boys and I got back from the gym, we helped set up a surprise.

Trix: Okay we've been getting a lot of emails about this. At the end of every Trading Spouses switch, the wives are supposed to get money to spend to improve the other family, only we didn't get anything because that dumbass Mickey Ben made me leave early.

Tom: And we didn't find that acceptable, at all.

Trix: I did not dress like a dork for free!

Tom: So to make it up to us, the network sent over a surprise gift.

Trix: We're home! I drove somewhere with FOUR kids, FOUR! I only got lost once but the camera crew helped me out.

Tom: Come on out back. The network sent over a surprise to make up for that Trading Spouses fiasco.

Trix: Did they give us a POOL?

Tom: No.

Trix: A SAUNA?

Tom: No.

Trix: Camping gear? Are you pestering the network for that again?

Tom: No.

Trix: What did they give us?

Tom: Playground equipment!

Trix: WHAT!?!

Twins: Yay!

Tom: Its so cool! Look, there are swings and a merry-go-round and a slide and monkey bars! For our six little monkeys!

Trix: Oh my god, look at the mess they made. Did you let them wear boots on my grass?

Tom: Don't you like our new personal playground? Our FREE playground?

Trix: Oh! Yes, we really appreciate it. I just – I just thought they would give us something that the whole family could use.

Tricia: Push me on the swing Mommy!

Trix: Ask Peggy to do that. I'm exhausted.

Tom: Some things never change.

I didn't mean to take so much time off between new posts, sorry about that! The senior kitty is doing better now, thank you for your comments.

Another great one I must say! Trix may need some fuglier hair next time though.

Two questions though - where oh where did you get the working playground equipment? And how on earch to you made toddlers hug? That's adorable!

i've been watching these posts for awhile now and all i have to say is that they're fantastic!
I've never watched the show, but even without knowing the show it's a parody of, its still hilarious. keep up the good work!

Angela said...

The working playground equipment and the hugging toddlers both came with the "Apartment Life" expansion pack, which I love!

alana said...

The Porta-Potties in the background are priceless!

You are multi-talented - the dialogue is hilarious and SO J&K!

Thanx for the laugh!

"immasculating baldness"


And the pic of T and T getting snuggly on the couch made me throw up a little. *shudders*

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Trix is exactly like Kate!

I parodied Jon and Kate with my best friend, but instead of Jon and Kate, it was Bob and Eileen Plus 17, and oh snap, there is a picture:

I always look forward to your new episodes! Great work and looking forward to the next one.

cincymom said...

I don't want to minimize the greatness of this (it is sooooooo hilarious, I wish it were weekly). Anyway, it would be really funny to add some silos to the last shot with the backyard...

Angela said...

Silos would be a good addition to the next episode that I have planned... :-)

Suzanne said...

You are a genius! I love Trix's comment "I thought they'd send something the whole family could use."


Kate said...

Yay! I am so glad you are still doing this; it makes my day every time you post one. So funny.

Addison said...

Trix: The kids love her, she's just like family. Except that she's still speaking with us.

Lol. That's awesome. Great parody of the "Girls Day Out" episode!

Glad to know your kitty is on the mend. You are a genius, Angela. Thanks for the much-needed laughs!

I just found your blog and I have to say I haven't laughed so much in ages. Keep up the good work, I look forward to more!

New Headlines to be coming up:

On the NEXT episode of Kate + 8, we explain why Jon is no longer on the show. He should have known if you show up Kate on being a good parent, you lose your TV rights. Tune in Monday at 8:30 p.m. to see Jon and Aunt Jodie rehashing good times before they were booted off the show!
On the NEXT episode of Kate + 6, we explain why the twins are no longer on the show! They should have known if you grow up and are cuter and nicer than Kate, or stand up for yourself, you are axed! Tune in to see Mady and Cara discuss old fun times with Jon and Aunt Jodie. A reunion with the maternal grandparents might be a highlight also!
On the NEXT episode of Kate + 3, we explain why the boys are no longer on the show. The boys have always known they weren't the favorites, but they never dreamed they would be cut. Reunion highlights of them joyfully playing with their Dad, Aunt Jodie and their twin sisters will be enjoyed by all!
On the NEXT episode of Kate + 0, you will see Kate in her quiet, peaceful house with NOBODY breathing. Ahhh..the sound of silence she so craves. You will watch her walk from Bible quote to Bible quote dusting them off and smiling. She will be eating monkey munch alone and will vacuum as soon as she's finished. Ahh.. such a nice organized quiet life in the 8,000 sq. foot TV home. Highlights will be Jon, Aunt Jody, and the eight beautiful stress free kids playing with all their new neighbors in their mis-matched walmart outfits! A happy ending is indeed coming! Monday at 8:30, tune in!

hahaha - as a fellow sims2 junkie (I spy with my little eye even the ikea ep in your story), I just wanted to say thank you! for your blog. Totally makes me smile when I check in on your space.
Also? I can't WAIT to see what you do with the mansions & garden EP that's expected *wink wink*

Angela said...

Heh, I love Ikea and The Sims 2, so that EP was a dream come true! I'm sure I can find some use for the Mansions and Gardens one. ;-)

Great work. The whole driving thing and the family comment were great!!

Anonymous said...

This is awsome, keep it up. But how were you able to get all 17 kids in the other family's house? I thought you could only have 8 people per house?


Angela said...

Jenn, the Goddard Sims are divided into three houseolds. I used a teleporter object to put them into one house.
