<p>I’ve been having a lot of Sims dreams lately. Last night I dreamed that you could purchase a flock of sheep, and your Sims could shepherd their flock up into the grassy fields at the edges of the map. And periodically you could click on a sheep, choose either “Shear Sheep” or “Shear Flock,” and sell the resulting fleece(s) at the market for simoleons.
<p>I think EA needs to get right on this, personally.
<p>Anyway, let’s check in on all those teenagers and see what they’re up to.<img src=”/images/2009/09/99-1.jpg”>
<p>Delphine (Technophobe, Virtuoso, Good, Party Animal) is practicing guitar in the library. Gosh, I wish she could practice piano or violin instead. Too bad those instruments aren’t available in Sims 3. (Don’t get me started on the lack of a pool table.)<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/09/99-2.jpg”></div>
<p>Blue (Hates the Outdoors, Couch Potato, Unflirty, Excitable) is standing in the kitchen thinking about taking a vacation. Or, since she hates the outdoors, maybe she’s thinking about watching a travel show on TV.<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/09/99-3.jpg”></div>
<p>Geraint (Slob, Good, Genius, Athletic) is reading a book in the library. How he can read with all the racket Delphine is making, I’ll never know.<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/09/99-5.jpg”></div>
<p>Chuck (Over-Emotional, Genius, Natural Cook, Light Sleeper) in his white boy cornrows is sitting at the dining table, complaining about his sandwich.<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/09/99-4.jpg”></div>
<p>And Alex (Couch Potato, Excitable, Family-Oriented, Friendly) is standing in the gym, watching television. <i>That’s not what the gym is for!</i><div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/09/99-6.jpg”></div>
<p>Here’s the latest iteration of the house. I like to take exterior pictures at dusk, I like the way the windows look all lit up from outside. The gym is the bit on the far left.
