In Which Disaster Has Not Struck…Yet

/stares blankly at Annette staring blankly/

Umm…what do I do now?

Don’t just stand around and stare at me! Go…go somewhere!

I guess she didn’t hear me because she stood like this for five whole minutes, eyes looking into my soul.


This honestly scared me for a moment. Guess what mode of transportation I’ll never use again?

On the way to…wherever she was going, I spotted a couple of people standing outside in front of their lot for no real reason.

Something tells me these guys and Annette will have a lot in common.

She makes a beeline for this guy, Don…something or other.

Anyways, doesn’t she look absolutely massive in this shot?

It’s like Don whatchamacallit is a teen… But let’s hope not.

They greet each other awkwardly.

D’awww! They’re both socially inept! 😀

Again, Annette is just towering over this guy but he’s not a teen (since she has the romantic option tab) so maybe he’s just screwy.

Annette shares her OCD-ness with this guy and he just goes along with it.

Then…this happens.

This made me laugh. There’s no way any self-respecting adult Sim would do this…

I stand corrected.

Wow. It’s like these two were made to creep me out together.

SEE? Annette is a giant!

After I’ve had my fill of weirdness, I send Annette off to the Science Lab…thingy because someone told me you can get gardening lessons there.

This shot was taken solely to include the awesome dolphin motif.

Back at the Zero residence, the newspaper arrived and I put Annette’s Frugal trait to the test.

Annette: I know that I’m dropping all those paper clippings all over the place but I just have to clip out these coupons for 15% off on plasma screen televisions!

She rolled a want wish to clean something and I wondered if throwing away the only source of entertainment she had would suffice.

Long story short, it did. 😀

First want wish of the legacy!

I set her to work planting the free seeds she had gotten from the gardening class.

What you don’t see is Annette trying to scrub her hands clean a million times.

This is me. Right now.

The first day of this legacy is almost over and there haven’t been any fires, or deaths, or ‘accidental’ pool ladder incidents!

Anyways, I sent her to City Hall to join the Gardening career (thanks for bringing that to my attention, ruthmaybe!) and she stops in one of her charateristic fussy fits.

By the time she got back, I had already built her the domicle of her dreams:

A full dining set, complete with makeshift kitchen and conspicious public toilet!

A lawn chair to stare creepily at something other than me, plus a nice comfy sleeping bag, so she can become one with the plants.

I think she likes it. 😀

As the sun sets, Annette vents her frustration at our resident gnome, whom I’ve dubbed Sir Gnomes-a-lot.

(Question: Are the ones you buy from buy mode the ones that can move around?)

After kicking Sir Gnomes-a-lot and propping him back up several times, Annette finally falls into a deep sleep, unaware that I forgot to feed her.

  1. Hi, good job surviving day one! 🙂 The gnomes from the store are just stationary (ala pink flamingos and other lawn ornaments) You can get the “Mysterious Mr Gnome” by fishing (sometimes you’ll pull in a box with a gnome, a candle, sometimes even a guitar!) Others are skill related (inventing, sculpting) you will get vampire gnomes if you grow plasma fruit. But watch out, they will turn every teddy bear on the lot!
    The SimsWiki has some good tips:
    Carls’ Sims 3 guide is also useful

  2. Good first day considering how much of a noob you are! XD (kidding.. ¬_¬)
    With generations the gnomes can have BABIES! ^¬^
