Gengis Makes Money
is Gengis now?
Oh, we're at the junk...yard...?
What in the world happened last night?
Oh hey, a shack. I wonder what's inside?
A fireplace? Sort of a random place for that, but let's light it up and make ourselves at home.
A fridge? Here?
Now that's REALLY random. Just a fridge, too. And some chairs around a table.
You know, instead of making ourselves at home...
Let's make ourselves like we're at somebody else's home.
Gengis puts on his icecream-eating clothes and eats the whole container.
Junkyard icecream is the best kind of icecream, after all.
Now that the icecream is settling well, allow me to explain yesterday.
Because Gengis drank so much coffee, he got excited and started getting little Wants very frequently, which is why he cleaned the counters and his bed, fed Luke, washed his hands, and brushed his teeth repetitively.
Because of this, he got a bunch of points saved up. So I went ahead and bought a reward, "Mid-Life Crisis". This allowed me to switch one of his current traits for a new one. I switched his "Hates the Outdoors" trait for "Eccentric". This makes him better at inventing things. Hooray!
Let's see if we can find some materials to build with in the junkyard now that we're here.
Hey, a pipe. This will come in handy as a snack later, so Gengis tries to contain himself from eating it now.
What? Another pipe?
As fun as pipes are, we don't need two.
Oh! What's this?
Is there anything besides pipes in here?
I guess not.
Come on! This is a big pile of stuff! There has to be something in here! Maybe if we dig deeper.
Oh come on!
Forget this, let's dig in this pile. It looks more interesting.
Wait, there's a Digger in here!
A rare "Digger" beetle, common in places with a lot of scrap metal and garbage.
This will make a hearty breakfast.
I know we're having bad luck with pipes lately, but how did this toilet clog up? All he did was pee!
Junkyard toilets are the worst.
Huh. A grave.
I don't know about you, but a junkyard is the last place I'd want to be buried.
Gengis mourns for this person he's never met in his entire life, and takes a break from digging for scrap and heads back to town.
Inventing is expensive to start out with, because the only way to "invent" is to buy a really expensive workbench.
So Gengis bought a book so we can at least get a few skill points in inventing to start us off.
It's a nice morning, and Gengis no longer has an inane fear of the outdoors, so let's spend the start of the day reading on the bench.
What's this fellow up to?
Oh my. He's sneaking up on this female pedestrian.
Oh the suspense is killing me!
What is he going to do?
"Good morning to you too, Lenny.
Everyone in this town is insane.
Ugh. Who could possibly be calling us at 7 in the morning?
"No, Sinbad! I will not go to the dance club with you, for the last time! I don't care about this 'foam party' you keep talking about!
Wow, these are some weird people. Let's head home before things get really crazy.
Actually, it probably wouldn't hurt to find some scrap metal to invent with later in our neighbors' trashcan.
We haven't dug through our neighbors' garbage in a long time. Gengis is going to enjoy this.
Mrs. Mafia was our neighbor this entire time!? I never even knew!
Oh god, she's walking over.
Quick, Gengis! Pretend to be a lawn ornament!
"BEVERLY! I haven't seen you since Dennis's party! How's things been?
Yep, I finally managed to remember Mrs. Mafia's name. It's Beverly.
"Oh, you finally had your baby! Where is the little rug-rat?
"Aw, he's cute.
"That's good. That means he'll sell for a lot more in the human trafficking market.
Of course, Gengis will need Beverly's permission before he can do that, so let's ask later and head back home.
Oh. It's you.
"What do you want? Stop staring at me.
"Look, I have a gun under my welcome mat. Just...play with that for a while and leave me alone, will you?
Is there a single person on the workforce in this town that isn't mental?
Luke's the sanest being in this entire town, and he's a fish.
Alright, now that we're back home, let's...well, let's get this over with.
Hold your breath.
Because here we go...
Gengis gasps for air after finally cleaning the toilet to perfection.
Now that the house is all cleaned up, it's time to...
Eat some food without washing our grimy, fishy, toilet-cleaning, garbage-digging hands.
Ugh, at this rate we'll never get enough money for the workbench.
Money don't grow on trees, you know. And Gengis has bills to pay and mouths to feed. There ain't nothing in this world for free.
So we can't slow down, and we can't hold up. Although I'm sure Gengis wishes he could.
Should push come to shove, we may have to sell the Gengis Mobile Mach II, but I hope it doesn't come to that.
Let's see if we can snag some extra cash by cosigning these veggies.
Oh wait! I know a quick way to make some money!
Move, it buddy.
Oh wait, that's Gengis's boss. He's looking a little pale.
And synchronized, in terms of insanity with that other fellow.
Everyone's just crazy about Gengis.
Anyways, let's grab a quick snack while we're here.
Okay, no. We're going to catch some bugs and sell them at the science facility. That should make us a pretty penny.
I bet the red ones taste like strawberries.
But we're going to have to sell them, so it's best not to give it a taste.
Ah, a rare Canadian Thinking Seed. Yes, this will help in our quest for the Holy Workbench.
Well, this is going nowhere. There's only one thing to do now.
Sue for slander.
Gengis got in a bit of trouble for passing out "in public", so we're going to sue the paparazzi who made those claims, even if they were true.
Also, while Gengis was in court, this little girl was playing tag with her older sister.
And threw up right as she opened her mouth to say "tag".
Then she skips merrily away like nothing even happened.
It may not translate well into screenshot form, but it was hilarious as I was watching it happen. But that's just me.
What? We won?
I mean, of course we won. Everybody loves Gengis. He's got that charm about him. That sort of charm that will make people believe him when he's lying through his teeth.
Well, let's call it a night and actually sleep in our own bed this time.
The update's not over yet, though.
I moved Luke to Gengis's nightstand since we had to sell Jill for some extra cash. We're just about there in terms of buying the workbench, so a day at the office will get us just enough money to purchase it.
Gengis was singing in the shower. I think it's going to be a good day.
Those jerks. They made Gengis take the fall for everyone. The least they could've done was pay Gengis overtime for this, but no
Of course, the cop isn't too smart and lets Gengis sit in the front seat for some reason.
But Gengis couldn't make up an escape plan, so he spent the rest of the day in the police department's jail cells.
Figures. We were this close
to getting a workbench, too. And tomorrow's Gengis days off, on top of all of that. So we can't make any big money until he goes back to work.
Of course, because the police are about as collectively smart as Luke, they couldn't find any evidence to pin anything on Gengis, so they let him out.
Well, that was a lame way to spend the workday. That's the end of this update.
If you have any suggestions on how Gengis should spend tomorrow, additions or changes in his clothing or house, or anything else just post them in this thread.
