Wow, seriously? Who could be calling at 2 A.M.?
If we could trash this phone, I would.
Well, no matter. It's morning. Although it doesn't really look like it in Gengis's room.
Here you go, Luke. There's your daily meal.
Boy it's foggy today.
Luckily, Gengis is getting pretty good at "handiness".
Of course, handiness isn't limited to upgrading and repairing objects.
Occasionally friends will start asking for Gengis to repair their broken stuff in exchange for money and a stronger relationship.
Handiness also has some "hidden" upgrades to objects that the skill guide doesn't tell you.
This picture isn't related at all, by the way. I'm just showing you that Gengis finds it necessary to fiddle with the kitchen sink for at least an hour each morning.
Also I canceled newspaper deliveries because I was tired of the papergirl's nonsense. But we still have to deal with this guy.
Apparently he's reached a tough time in his relationship with our mailbox, so he tries to avoid eye contact with it.
And here's a hidden upgrade.
At a certain level of handiness, you can make your doorbell change to five different jingles or sounds.
We decided to change our doorbell to a stock "jingle" sound. Now it plays part of the Sims 3 theme song every time somebody rings our bell.
I can't wait for that to get annoying!
How would you react if you saw this outside your door's window?
Anyways, let's get to inventing!
Ugh, this stupid phone.
Oh, it's that redneck from the other day. The one who let us sleep on his couch a few days ago.
Yes, yes. It is very interesting that if you push the symbols on the phone in a certain order you can talk to different specific people.
Gengis hangs up early, within reason.
No more distractions.
Except we're on the clock for our ghostbusting duties.
What do you know! It's in the marshlands. Luckily we have a car this time around.
Yikes. This certainly looks like a house that would hold a bunch of ghosts.
Ironically all the ghosts were just hiding in the bushes.
Well, let's head to our next job.
Where we eat all their icecream.
But we're not doing this just because Gengis was hungry. Although that was the main reason.
It's because the guy we pushed off the treadmill lives here!
I hate him.
Despite us ghostbusting treadmill guy, city hall has been taking notice of our efforts and gave Gengis a medal!
The tooltip says we got two. One for hanging up on the wall, the other for wearing.
I'm not sure if that was a very weak attempt at a joke or if it was serious, because I can never find the medal we can wear. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. If anybody could find out for me, that'd be nice.
Now then, let's take a quick rest in our spooky, foggy bedroom.
Gengis gets some midnight munchies, though.
So we're going to try to make something different. Pancakes.
And let's prepare them differently, too.
God knows why, but Gengis decided to make the pancakes in his bathroom rather than on the kitchen counters.
Thankfully he decides to cook the pancakes using a stove like normal people.
Oh great. It's a golden brown. We burnt it.
Way to go, Gengis.
Well, we don't want to waste all that time and effort, so Gengis eats it anyways.
Hmm, for being burnt they taste pretty good.
Oh boy, bills we can't pay for.
Well, desperate times call for desperate measures.
We're going to have to sell Jill and all the other ghosts we've been collecting for science.
We actually got a pretty hefty sum of money for all the ghosts we sold, so Gengis decided to...upgrade.
Ladies and gentlemen. Children of all ages. I bring you...
The Gengis-Mobile Mach III
And ladies...he's single.
Oh, and that's not all!
Ghostbusting is a very profitable business.
Yes Gengis, we're serious. And it's all yours.
Your very own washing machine!
EXTRA CHEAP AND EXTRA NOISY
Now let's go to our nightly ghostbust.
Gengis is the coolest ghostbuster in town.
He's also the only ghostbuster in town.
But if there were two, he would be the coolest.
Wow, we actually get to be face-to-face with our client this time.
So, what's the problem?
"That's the last time I ever say anything in front of the mirror three times!
Okay Maxis. You made me chuckle there.
She's pretty creepy-looking, but Gengis did a quick ghost-check.
Well, that was a quick gig. So Gengis heads home after selling the ghosts he collected.
And we were able to buy this awesome wide-screen TV!
Gengis is moving up in the world.
Of course, I forgot to consider that...
Necessities should come before luxuries.
Yeah, yeah. I forgot to buy a dryer so I gave Gengis this clothesline instead.
Uh, Gengis...? Why do you have...?
Well, let's sleep in our now-normal bedroom. That's all for now.
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.
