DAY 1: Settling in

Inspired by @singsingsing's blog, I started to play Zachary few days ago. By now he is married and has a kid, but I will post about his journey in separate entries, because othewise it's too long.

Ranfords, day 1

Meet Zachary. He is generation 2 fundie (well, actually he comes straight from CAS, but dont tell him that), youngest son of alphabetically named quiverfull family. As you see, his name starts with Z, which means that by the time he was born, nobody cared anymore. Stripped from education, opportunity to learn skills and develop interests, Zachary reached his adulthood with limited options. For his homeschool graduation party he asked (and received) an old van. He packed up few things an old refrigerator, grill, tent, some old boxes and drove as far as he could. Van broke down here, in small island called Crystal Archipelago. There is only a forest and a river. There are no electricity, running water or community business. And Zachary decided that he likes it that way. He can build it all. With help of pretty wife and billion children. Maybe some of the townies will join them, and then Zachary will have a cult of his own!

The forest Zachary lives in is made mostly from stuff from here: http://www.medievalsims.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=240. There are cuttable trees, harvestable berries and mushrooms, nuts and fruits, and hunting stations. There is also a fishing spot (loved by townies) and reed spawner. It should cover Zachary’s basic needs from food to materials for furniture. 

As Zachary moved in, first thing he did was jumping rope. A smart choice actually – one needs at least three body skills to cut down a tree, and he needs logs to build a house. But before that there were... more... rushing needs. Zach needed a toilet. So he used his first body skill to dig one.

Eww. Not even he liked it. (But it fulfilled his want to get one, so. Good enough for now.)

After that was covered, Zach continued to work out. He only stopped for a while to grab some wild mushrooms for dinner. He started to sink (it was very clear that the first thing to build was a shower), and he was exhausted.

But he did it! Right after midnight Zachary cut down his first tree! He wanted to build a shower right away, but was too exhausted.

He didnt even made it to his tent. And it started to rain. Eww. First day was a bit disappointing. What the next one will bring?

Very cool - I have never seen a sim dig a toilet before! :pb_lol: Is that a mod of some sort?

I'm looking forward to more adventures of Zachary in his van/tent down by the river. I can't imagine why any woman wouldn't think he's a catch...!

No, it's just a CC toilet. I made him dig a hole for authenticity. 

I have no idea either, but his wife is not exactly the brightest girl in town.

      They didn't specify a due date, but ended the video with this message. She must be due very early 2025. They did two ultrasounds - one three weeks or more before the gender reveal where they found out that they were expecting twins, and one close to the gender reveal where they found out that it was two girls. I don't have kids and don't know how early you can see if it's a boy/girl, but I assume she must be at least 10-12 weeks.

      I zoomed in on their Instagram post. Ultrasound said 13 weeks and 1 day taken July 15th 2024. Babies have a due date of jan 20 2025

    • A news article just popped up on my feed about these people and the first thing I thought was "I wonder if FJ has talked about these crazy parents?" 😄

      In today's article there's info about how they plan to educate their children by "unschooling" them. They have started a school called the Collins Institute for the Gifted for middle school through post-graduate age students. You can visit their fancy website, if you desire to waste an hour. 

      These are clearly people who think they know everything and the rest of us are bumbling idiots.

      It makes no sense at all.  If anything, it shows again how Artemis did not thoroughly research the costs and they should have saved a little of the thousands of dollars they raised for any costs they had not anticipated at their new kocation.  They are idiots.

      Their landlord is a family member or someone who is renting "off the books?" (I suspect that in some areas, there is a significant fraction of "rentals" that do not have certificates of occupancy. This may be because they are grandfathered in, or just anti-government, "you're not the boss of me" types.)

      This is one of those times when Gary asks, "Am ah makin' sense this morning'? Amen?"--  I would have answered "No".

      You and me both, sister! That is literally sound-for-sound (I really can't call it word-for-word) what came out of his mouth. I wasn't planning to type so much of it out. But I started with what he was saying right after the reading, because it was so bizarre, and the weirdness never stopped, so I just kept on going.

      Among other Garyisms, why read starting in verse 41, then go on and on about things that happened earlier in the story? Why not plan to read from the earlier stuff? Several parts of the story of Joseph fit his "life got turned upside-down" theme.

      Gary is such a mental mess.
