Olie Sirat: Soiltary Sim Seeking Simoleons
Olie: My head felt all fuzzy as I opened my eyes to find myself in a place filled with blue light. Nothing but blue all around me. As I stood there in a sort of suspended state I was trying to remember what I had been doing before finding myself .... here. Closing my eyes to concentrate I heard a faint ..... clicking sound. Then the room started to spin ... or was that me?
Ominous Voice: "Hold still Olie ... I just need to tweak ..."
Olie: "HEY ... watch what you are .. tweaking there!" That was when I became aware that I was being poked and prodded and gently stretched everywhere. "Wait .... are you an ALIEN? OH PLUM I have been abducted by Aliens!"
Ominous Voice: "No silly ... you are in CAS and I am creating you to be the perfect Sim for a .... project I have for you."
Olie: "A project? ... what sort Suspect  of project?"
Ominous Voice: "Oh just a little something I dreamed up. Whistle  A little game I call Rosebud 500K Solitaire by EuphorialQueen -
It will be lots of fun thumbs up  I promise."
Olie: Suspect  "What's in it for me?"
Ominous Voice: "A customized home and lots and lots of Simoleons. And I will be Watching over you the whole time. I guess you could call me The Watcher or Watcher for short."
Olie: "A house and lots of Simoleons huh? Well I am not the greedy type but it sounds okay by me... Let's go get started! Can't wait to see my new home."

What's that thing?
If I poke it will it go away?
How about if I ignore it?
Nope ... still there.

That may be the best part of the whole story. Wink I get so busy trying to get to the next Monday (5th week now) I am forgetting to take pictures. More to come later as I try to organize some highlights from the weekend.

Olie was teleported to his new (future) home in Oasis Springs. After commenting on how there was not a lot on his lot (see what I did there) he resigned himself to the task at hand.
No food ... no place to sleep and no toilet...
Olie: What? How the heck am I supposed to live here?
Watcher: ....
Olie: Never mind I will just pop into the local shop and get some .... (reaches into pocket) ... HEY ... where is my wallet? I was sure I had some spare Simoleons but they seem to have gone missing. *glare*
Watcher: ... *Innocent look* Guess you better get busy and start finding a few things to sell.  And by the way .... whatever you find... you have to keep it for one week before you can sell anything.
Olie: ... *GLARE*


I'll just have some Chips please

"... and then I woke up in this blue room see and there was this voice and ... No I have not been at the nectar... why? "

"... yes .. I *pant* do this *wheeze* all the *gasp* time ... WHEW"
 


.... still only Tuesday and cannot sell anything until Monday Mwahahahaha
choir
... the sounds of an angelic choir as Olie spots a plate of grilled fruit left behind.


Olie: *Loudly* This food sure looks tasty ...

... wonder if it belongs to anybody ...


.... MINE now ...

Olie: No wonder my pockets were so heavy

Olie gets some stuff:
Watcher: Hey Olie ... you know all those things you collected? I sold it all and got you some stuff.
Olie: Hooray ... stuff! What kind of stuff?
Watcher: You know that very lovely bench where you slept? I got you your very own bench!
Olie: Oh good a new bed. Wait did you say bench? Those things are hard and cold and not very comfy.
Watcher: *giggle* Sorry I could not help myself. Actually you now have a very nice tent.
Olie: ... and a house ... right? you said I would get a house.
Watcher: Not quite yet but you have a toilet, a shower and a sink. And I am going to let you keep your bear that you found in the trash.

*Note: Somebody (Watcher) forgot to buy an outdoor trash can. Suspect

Olie Gets a Job:
Olie was kept busy trying to get a garden started and doing some more collecting so it was not until the end of week two that he finally got a job.












Olie caught .... a Box ?

Olie Likes Food
Watcher: So Olie you have been doing a good job tending the garden and collecting but it is time to get a job.
Olie: Awww I was having so much fun. Do I have to get a job?
Watcher: Yes Olie... if you want that nice house you will need a job. Let's talk about what you like to do. 
Olie: I like reading ... did you know Tigers Do Not Take Naps? 
Watcher: Okay we could try writing but you would need a computer and you do not have one yet.
Olie: The library lady said I could not use her computers. Just because it got all sparky and smokey and broken. But I did see some pretty colors for a few days after that.
Watcher: Hmm so writer is out for now and probably not the best idea to get a Tech Guru job. 
Olie: I like food. *Grin*
Watcher: Remember how many times you burnt yourself on the campfire.
Olie: ... *dejected*
Watcher: Well maybe you can learn to cook. But you will start as a dishwasher.  It that okay?
Olie: Hooray ... I like food!! I am going to go read a cooking book right now.

Poor Olie, being dazzled by colors for days. Hehehehehehe....A food career could be pretty tasty but dangerous. Keep the fire extinguisher handy! Or max your gardening skill Olie Wink

Great progress!
