This is Joel. For some reason (even before I started the two long and dumb fanfic projects featuring a protagonist of the same name) ever since I got the Sims I have been naming a character Joel, giving him the shaggy hair and hipster glasses, putting him in the white hoodie, and making him a scientist. I always make sure he marries, has kids, and lives happily. I don't know why I don't get tired of this, but I don't. It's very comforting.
Anyway, this time I had him be raised by scientists in a laboratory. It doesn't seem to have had an ill effect on him.
He likes to make omelettes.
This is Jean, a townie whom Joel fell in love with as a child.
She likes to eat omelettes.
"So if you think you've got it tough, just be glad you're not Vidcund. I mean, he doesn't even have a vagina. There's no Lamaze for that. By the way, do you think you should be drinking so much espresso when you're that pregnant?"
"You shut up."
A Sentry-bot takes out Crystal Vu, who had the audacity to kick over the Kaufmans' garbage. This kind of robot is worth the time, every time.
Shortly after the birth of his firstborn Tomas, Joel completes Data, who is superior to a human child in every way.
NOT SHOWN: Joel having an affair with
his own robot creation. I am not making this up. I had no idea that "Tune Up" had a romantic connotation for robots. They did it right in front of the kid, too.
