With new Simulations being churned out every second, one of us will end up actually alive at some point right? Might as well be me. I'm hardly a contentious figure around here. Bright, of course, but also cheerful and always willing to lend a hand. Along with my more common party planning, decorating, homemaking, hosting, fundraising, and organizing skills; I can also change a flat. I can deal with the fraud department at the bank when someone tries to use my credit card number. I can even cook, well, a few simple things at least. Don’t believe me? Check my skill points. Those babies don't lie.
I'm lovely if not stunning, tall, thin, but not too thin, with richly brown, beautifully rendered, thickly waving hair. Those are of course attributes and not skills. I’m pretty sure attributes are a different menu, with shaders instead of points, but out here I can hardly tell the difference.
I'm also proud to say I can admit my faults, a skill I’ve never needed much practice at. Sure I'm stubborn when I think I’m right, but who’s not these days? I’m a disaster at cleaning, never mastered the art of fixing a drink, and am frankly incapable of parallel parking in any spot not at least twice the size of my car. I may gossip but never maliciously, keeping my speech bubbles PG, and I certainly never perpetuate anything I know to be a lie. That’s just tacky.
Thankfully I have a way with people because animals find me something of a bother. I have been snapped at by the most well trained of dogs, scratched by the most dossil of cats, and urinated on by the cutest of rabbits. I even lost the hem of a beautifully white party dress to the unflagging hunger of the baby goat at the school petting zoo event I’d helped arrange. If I had to hazard a guess I’d say it’s some random roll for interesting character quirk but I’d sooner turn it off completely. Me and animals? Not compatible.
But people? Yes I can handle my people. You needn't take my word for it. Others too think highly of me. Our neighbors have often called me generous, and why shouldn't they? I donate to charity, pour an ample quantity of time into my son’s school, and have even signed up to be an organ donor in the unlikely event of my early death by too many fireplaces or pool ladder disappearance. I may have a lovely home, and my son in private school, and myriad other little luxuries but no one could say to I don’t do my part. Fortune does not smile on everyone equally after all, so I smile for it. So much can hardly be said for many of our neighbors.
Mirriam, Simulation #1523846, my dearest friend, would even tell you I'm loyal if you were to walk over and ask her yourself. Recently her husband lost his position on the Internet Celebrity career track when he was one level from the top. It was all very scandalous, but true friend that I'm I still had them over for dinner, was still seen with them at various functions, and continued to take their daughter Mira along in our carpool (We are helping save the environment you know).
My husband? Oh why would you want to talk about that silly old bat. He is a dear I tell you, though so few understand why I married him. Yes, yes I have been accused of gold digging many times. Move on will you? Besides my William is far too smart and far too stubborn to simply be dug. His logic meter is full to the top.
Sure he is not the most handsome of men, or sociable, or even active. He is many years my senior, and quite the Eeyore at times but I simply would not have it to do over again. You must understand me, I love him. The stiff, robust bodies of men in their prime have never been altogether tantalizing. So my husband, in his softly rounded state is something of a relief from the angularity and the brimming athletic meters found outside my doors. And anyway, I’m a brunette and while trophy wives come in many shades, all the pros are blonde.
Besides he gave me what my really wanted without my even having to ask. He gave me Asher, a better son a mother never had. I know that can’t really be true of any child but its fun to say. I was pregnant for 72 hours, had my labor pains animations then spun around in a cloud of multi-colored sparks until he appeared in my arms. It was wonderful. He even had his fathers coloring. Thankfully, the baby stage only lasts three days so taking care of him was a breeze, just check his stats for whatever’s running low and top him up. I highly recommend it.
Anyhow thats me, until the next expansion pack at least. I hear their are adding plastic surgery and addiction mechanics, but my fingers are crossed for natural selection. Its a whole wide world in here after all.
