I hope this doesn't make me weird...

Proving that I'm not a complete ego-/couple-maniac, I actually play Sims characters sometimes who are not me and Carrie.

Yep, Jason B. Bell. I gave him a robot shop built into his home. The one robot he made didn't sell well, so he switched to buying and selling art (sometimes painting his own). At first, the shop cost so much that Jason couldn't even afford to put carpet down over the grass in the living part of his house.

Eventually he made enough to get that taken care of.

His first employee was Faith from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She wasn't the greatest cashier at first. There was some other dude hired too, but he ended up being too expensive.

Noby, however, was much better as stock boy and eventual salesman. Currently, everyone is fired except Noby.

But it ain't all work. Jason on his first date with his girlfriend Betch Fuchs (a name I didn't make up). Her name proved true eventually when they -- as the Sims say -- did "Whoo Hoo." She lived with him for a day or two, then moved out. This is Jason in one of those NASA spinny things.

Guess who's coming to dinner?

Jason replaced Beth with the company of a womrat named Pinky.

Eventually the art store became the hippest place in the neighborhood, but Jason still has a thing or two to learn about the cash register.


Later, I'll bring you Lil' Rusty and Lil' Carrie: not their children, but freakish body time travel versions. On the next installment of "Posts Only Rusty Really Cares About, But At Least You Get To Read Something."
