<p>Priscilla and Marla had their birthdays.<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/10/105-5.jpg”></div>
<p>Now that they were both young adults, I kicked out Priscilla and went to work on Marla’s outfit. First I picked this awesome dress from the Jet Set clothing pack. You know, like Mad Men? Only without the sexism and racism and drinking and smoking?<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/10/107-1.jpg”></div>
<p>Awesome as I thought it was, it just didn’t <i>go</i>. Even Marla looked less than enthusiastic. Was this any kind of outfit for a technophobic evil genius to wear? No it was not.<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/10/107-2.jpg”></div>
<p>I went for a black turtleneck and black leather pants, instead.
<p>By the way, the Collection Helper Happiness Reward is everything it’s cracked up to be. <div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/10/107-3.jpg”></div>
<p>It gives you a pushpin on the map to show the location of whatever you’re collecting. Then it makes it all sparkly so you can’t miss it. Very useful indeed!
<p>Right after I took this screenshot, Virginia got the “resurrect the dead” opportunity from the Science Center. I pondered for a little while, then sent her to the Science Center with Tyler Spline’s headstone.<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/10/107-4.jpg”></div>
<p>And it worked! Kinda. He’s a playable ghost, which is almost as good as being fully resurrected. Also, he came back from the dead with his Fun rating at zero, and with a radio in his personal inventory. (??)
