Everyone knows – chicks dig The Sims 2.
Have you ever wondered if you were the first person ever in human history to do something? I wonder if I am the first person ever in human history to hold a three-day-old baby chick up to a computer monitor in order to take a picture of it watching The Sims 2. I very well might be.
Before we move on to the Sims proper, I just wanted to point out Harriet’s eensy weensy proto-tail feathers.
Okay. Please put your chickens away now. Sorry about that – Frank is at college, and I find the college years atrociously boring.
College is an important life stage, because they can spend most of their day increasing their skills. And Sims that graduate from college end up with six slots for Wants, rather than the usual four. This makes it easier to manage them, because the more Wants they have, the more likely it is that one of them will be easy to fulfill.
Still, though. I get a lot of knitting done when my Sims are at college.
In his senior year, I sent Frank out to some community lots to find a prospective wife. This was weird:
“I’m ignoring you as I walk right past you, and also I’m in love with you, and also I’m pretending to have a conversation on the phone.” WTF.
Moments after Crazy In Love And Using Imaginary Phone Lady walked past, a girl named Sharon Wirth walked onto the lot. Frank swooned as soon as he laid eyes upon her. Fortunately, she was smitten by him, as well.
Frank has graduated college, and is ready to return home. FINALLY.
