Bob Newbie has become the friend maker. Bob Newbie is also now the only one with a job because Betty missed work two days in a row.

Their first skunk because I can't keep the house clean even with a maid.

They bought two little birds.

Bob managed to become friends with Bella Goth.

Claire the bear made a bee line straight for the beehive.

It didn't work out so well for Claire.

We also have a bunny problem. While I do not have any carrot patches so they do not actually eat anything, I see them hop around every once in a while, watching, waiting, counting down the hours until I decide to grow carrots, which I already know will not be happening.

Thanks to the beeswax I have been harvesting I was able to make a charm so we got the charm making machine.

The charms are pretty.

I didn't realize you had to bang the thing off the machine.

This charm is for Beauty or Beast

Betty went really small and then really big, I missed the really small part.

There were not a lot of options for beauty (since the charm worked) so I went with this. I guess it is beautiful. The more magic I have her do on lot the more likely they are to get magical growth things like crystals or the bean stalk which is what I really want.

Getting more beeswax

This also makes honey which is cool.

At this point the camera started not taking pictures even when I told it to and the problem was rather random so I am getting annoyed with it. I was seriously considering starting the whole game over (because I am just like that to myself) but I haven't and I am trying really hard not to let a few hiccups make me uninstall and re-install the game, even though I really want to right now.

I am not sure when but the birds died inside of two weeks Sim time of play. I swear I fed them every day.

I decided to get the grapes and elderberry sprigs and see how that went, I think we can make wine at some point but right now I am just trying everything out a bit.

More camera not working. She actually did this for a little while and has been making a lot of magic coins. In fact, she had enough magic coins to buy...

... a dragon

Who turned into a pyro

Seriously, a pyro.

And he eats all of their flowers, oh well, they were taking too long to take care of anyway.

I had her buy two more dragons to see if I could get the other two types of dragons but no such luck, they were all pyro dragons.

So at this point I would really like to start over.  Making it through week six is actually pretty good for me but I feel like I should have waited a little while to get the dragon and I should have read the book again on how not to get the pyro dragon because that is dangerous to have around.  I am not really sure what to do and I guess we will all know what I decided when I next post about The Sims.


Bunnies! And Dragons! :D

That's the only thing I don't like about the birds in Sims 1 or 2. They just die.. I remember the first time I bought my Sims 2 Sims a bird (First EP I bought) I got a child to go out and feed it, and it was dead.. I did not mean to inflict that upon the poor kid. :P

Not as bad as what happened to my sister's Sim. She sent her Sims kid out to play with it, and just as she got to the cage, it fell to the bottom.. :( I was so shocked!
Yes, the birds in The Sims 2 never last. I remember reading a legacy where it was a running joke for a while as they kept naming the birds the same name but with a number at the end. The best part was, they made sure it was never the same type of bird so while the reader knew it was a new bird, theoretically the family didn't.

I think I had a couple of birds in my game when I was playing with Pets. I cannot remember how long they lasted but it could not have been long. Most of my families ended up with the womrats because that is what they generally rolled a want for.
