PostSubject: The Rose Rent - LadyGee's Rosebud Challenge   Wed Oct 01, 2014 6:28 pm

I thought about it and only hope I can make it through to the end.  That said, meet Rodney Armstrong



Rodney is here in Willow Creek straight out of high school, flat broke, and because he responded to a mysterious ad from a magazine.
"Grounds Keeper" it read and stipulated he could have the land for free.  The requirements was that he had to find a rose bush to harvest.  From that harvest, a rose bush was to be planted on the grounds.  It also stated that he would be responsible for everything else regarding this lot called Rindle Rose.  Easy Peasy right?  

Rodney had made the assumption that there would be living quarters on the grounds.  However, ground was the only thing he found.  The lot was completely empty except for a mailbox and trash can.  Rodney was about to learn the hard way that all is not as it seems in Willow Creek.

Well at least there's a fishing spot near by, hope it's been stocked,


Oh and look, there a park right in back of my lot.  Might as well have a look around.


Hmmm, I wonder what's under this shinny thing?  Death Metal!  That doesn't sound good, but it's worth $60


Rodney looked around further and spotted a bush growing in the park and rushed to see if it was a rose bush.  No  (sigh)


Hey what was that smell?  He turned around and saw a hotdogs on the table.  I could use a bite after that long trip.


I'll just grab a plate and introduce myself.  Afternoon, I'm Rodney mind if I join you?  I just moved to that empty lot over there.


Bob's the name and this is Summer, have a seat.  I don't envy you, moving is a pain in the you know what.


Thank you.  It's not much trouble when all you have is a trashcan.


Soon another person joined the table.  Wow this seems to be a friendly place.  


I'm planning on trying my luck with painting once settled in.  There's lots of scenery to paint around here.


Rodney thanked them for the food and continued with his exploring.    Just as he was about to check out some sort of log thing a woman stopped him.  He turned to find an angry woman shouting at him.  She was talking so fast he could barely understand what she was saying.  


He tried to calm her down by offering to buy a cup of coffee.  But she quickly turned and left as fast as she showed up muttering to herself.


Note to self - Avoid the dragon lady at all cost!


Back with more, must feed the human  Laughing

Thanks Ladies.

We pick up where Rodney continues exploring before the Dragon Lady.   Oh a Eggplant Whirl Frog $100 Woot!


Another bush Uhh! wait, it's a rose bush.  Aw man can't be harvested, guess I'll have to wait.


Let's see what the fishing spot has to hold.  confused  guess I need to get them skills up.


Rodney explore a little further and ended up at the Library, mainly he needed to find a bathroom.


He browsed through the bookshelves and found a book on painting and starting reading


From all the noise these people are making, they have forgotten libraries are suppose to be quiet.


Geez, I thought they'd never leave.  Time for a quick nap before heading for home.


Arriving home, it's nearly mid-night and Rodney is hungry again.  It just so happens he found an plate of grilled chicken before it spoiled.  Boy did he luck out.



Oh look another shinny rock.  might I'll check it before turning in.



All in all, it wasn't a bad day.  (Death Metal-$60, Frog-$100, Hand Fossil-$45 Doll-$15) = $220  Night all, end of Day 1.

Thanks Susi & BG  he is a looker  Whistle

DAY 2

Pancake Bob was kind enough to let Rodney use his bathroom and they sat a chatted a while before he made himself some oatmeal.



The oatmeal didn't turn out so great, as it was the first meal he cooked; he'd have to change that and learn to cook.


Rodney continued with learning his way around town.  His first stop of the day was the museum.  He needed to get that easel and soon.  Admiring the artwork, he was soon ready for another nap.



He ventured over to a new fishing spot to try, again no such luck.


All the fishing had made him hungry.  He stopped in at the Blue Velvet.  He'd heard they gave free chips out.  It seems everyone else showed up hungry too.  That was also when he spotted a certain young lady.


They sat and chatted a bit at the bar, then like he had been struck by lightning he nearly fell off the stool when she told him her name.  Rose, Rose Petal   BaloonHeart


Things were getting weird.  He happened to glance down while they were chatting outside and . . . Where was her other foot.  eeek
Rodney knew he hadn't had a drop to drink, was his mind playing tricks on him?


Rose suddenly had to leave and he was still hungry.  He was so stunned by Rose that he never got to eat his chips!  Lucky for him there was a small park across the street and he just made it under the wire for the plate left on the table.  ZipDash


While chomping down the tofu dogs he saw another dig spot.  What the hell, one more before heading home.  When he unearthed it, he had but one thought.  God was playing with his mind   Out Cold  For what he had dug up was a rose crystal.


This was becoming like something out of the twilight zone!  He gets free land if he plants a rose bush on it,  the next day he meets a woman named Rose Petal, and just 15 minutes after meeting her he digs up a rose crystal  That's an awful lot of rose action in such  a short time.

Sleep, he needed sleep.  All this ROSE business was making him very tense.  Rodney made an additional $221 today with collectibles

I watched the Sims video yesterday where he explained the un-played sims.  I put her on a lot then evicted her, which put her with the rest.  It actually says she's not in the world.  It was a test to see if she would show up, and of course I chose her since I was going to do the Rosebud Challenge.  Her name being Rose Petal was the icing on the cake, how could I go wrong.  I have to admit when he dug up that rose crystal right after meeting her, made me do a big WHOA!!!  So a big thanks to you for creating her   BigHug

I'm just not sure, can my sim have a relationship with a NPC.  I hope it's possible, (need to research).  That would make this challenge AWESOME  banana

Thank you so much ladies.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the relationship.  Geez you have to move fast with it set on normal life span,  Trying to get things done before they die  Laughing

DAY 3

After some early morning digs and frog catching Rodney has earned enough to get a job.  He has chosen the Painter career.  Love that raised eyebrow!!  Heart hubba hubba


He is still trying to catch a fish.  Seems he catches everything but a fish

banana   Eureka  banana


Trying to get the relationship going Rodney invited Rose to the park and she greeted him with a hug.  He was mush after that.  Smile   I guess she was excited too, she started doing push ups. (These NPC don't seem to change clothes same outfit from last night   giggle )



I think Rose is beginning to like him.  Of course embellishing some tall tales didn't hurt.  They even took a pic together.  It was a kodak moment.   thumbs up




They spent the whole day together in the park.  She asked him to give her call again and ended the night with a big kiss. (I Missed the first kiss.  They were in a traffice area, sims kept popping in and out  Darnit!  Yeah he's a gonner; hook, line, and sinker!  Not sure what the handcuffs meant though . . .   thinkin



The next morning went to check on the rose bush to see if he could harvest.  To his surprise it was.


Rodney could now fulfill his requirement to keep the land.  He also bought an easel and a toilet.  It was time to start improving the lot - he was now officially the Grounds Keeper.  cheers



Time to get started on that career earn some more money to get some walls up.  


I didn't realize you had to pay to paint!   Mad  I don't remember if it was this way in Sims 3.  He better start cranking out some Master Pieces PDQ!

Fingers are stilled crossed on the relationship.  They've been chatting it up over the phone and it now says they are "Lovebirds)"  Celebrate

As usual you have me cracking up Ina  Laughing

I'm having fun so far, but I think I may have goofed.  I now know why Rose is doing push ups and sit ups all the time.  She has the "Active trait, Bro, Renaissance w/quick learner and music lover.  Bottom line she's to hyper and stays tense most of the time because she not working out or doing something she considers active.  Hind sight, I should have checked the traits before adding her as a townie.  Trying to find a way to change her maybe change traits hmm or is that not allowed?

The other thing, when moving her in it said she had $6563 in funds and he had almost 3k.  Once she was moved in their funds were $22K and I don't know how that happened.  So they are on hold for now until I calm this woman down a notch.   Wish me luck
