Rävkullen year 64-67, Effing Computer

« previous entry | next entry »
Nov. 7th, 2009 | 11:27 am


Previously at Rävkullen, Max moved in at got a fine for calling the fire department in vain. Then he found his Arts&Crafts interest and took up pottery. He started a career in the Athletics field. Lena moved in and stayed in touch with her many friends while waiting for her desired job to come up.



Lena still tries to find a job in the Military career while Max is sleeping.

 

She barely makes it through the ads




Until the computer breaks so she needs to fix it instead.



And when Max wakes up, just before he’s off to work, he proposes to Lena, who says yes, despite the fact that Max is terribly stinky.



While Max is gone to work for the day, Lena is jamming on her guitar. She awaits his return so they can have their wedding party. Her phone is ringing as usual.



And in the evening of December 3rd ’64 Max Benett and Lena Ceder are joint in holy matrimony.



Max’ birth father Ricky Cormier is here. Max is the spitting image of his father, as my readers have pointed out.



And after the honey moon and a work-out session, Mrs Benett is continuing her job search.



Lena: ”This effing computer obviously doesn’t want me to get a job!”



Lena: ”Let’s see now… Detective... Horoscope writer... Campaign Manager... no, no Military career in sight today either”



And while Lena still hasn’t found her desired job, Max is working hard to get to the top of the Athletics career. He’s already an All star.



Back to the classifieds.

Adventurer... Criminal... Entertainment... Dancing... No.



Since she still cannot find a job, Lena goes to visit her good friend and brother-in-law Martin Montell (he’s married to Lena’s sister Sofie) in his flower shop. You have to do something with your time!



She meets Maximilian Johansson over a hamburger.

Lena: “Oh, so you’re Vera’s father. Yeah, she’s Max’s cousin by his birth mother Livia, your sister, I believe. My sister Agnes went with her to University, so I’ve heard of her, but I cannot say that I know her”

Maximilian: “How do you know all these things?”
Lena: “Well, I’m cool as ice cream, and I’m a Popularity sim, I take an interest in other sims”

 


Rävkullen after round 18:
Max Benett
Lena (Ceder) Benett

She probably has a huge family tree hanging on her bedroom wall with how all the families in Mattsmyra are related to each other! But I'm impressed that she even knows who went to college with her sister.

Vera is a bit special since she's an alien, so I think everyone in Mattsmyra has heard about her.
And Lena has nothing to do except staying in touch and gossiping, so she's got the time to keep track!

Depite not being able to get a job... Lena is just the social butterfly isn't she? That little conversation at the end is very cute. It's definitely a nice summary for those of us who have bad memories and forget who is related to whom! That picture of Max and Ricky is just scary how much they look a like. I hope the Cormier/Devivio kids in my hood don't get sattled with that nose (Vinaya is in the clear I think!)

It's just amazing how hard it is to get a job in Mattsmyra these days!
We'll see if the nose sticks in the gene pool. Max got it from both sides, Livia has it too!

It will never cease to amaze me how much Max looks like his dad. I like Lena, she's a cute pop sim.

I would have to agree that Lena is as cool as ice cream. :)
I hate it when the job that your sim wants takes forever to show up! And it always gets worse with each expansion because there are MORE jobs to cycle through.

Me too, but at the same time it might be more realistic not to find your dreamjob the first day when you graduate!
