<p>Kay has both “Hates the Outdoors” and “Couch Potato.” I don’t know why I bothered having her try fishing. Predictably, she hated it and wanted to go back inside.<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2010/01/129-01.jpg”></div>
<p>Next, I tried building a greenhouse so she could try gardening. You used to be able to build greenhouses in Sims 2! But you have to fake it in Sims 3.<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2010/01/129-02.jpg”></div>
<p>In the end, I wasn’t able to build anything that was A) “outdoorsy” enough that the game would let me plant seeds, and B) “indoorsy” enough that Kay didn’t hate it.
<p>I finally decided to play to her strengths. I sent her to a writing class, then bought her a laptop and sent her to the library to write.<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2010/01/129-03.jpg”></div>
<p>She’s working on a science fiction book I titled “Sims In Space,” and LOVING IT.
