08/05/2005: Social Bunnies
As you may [or NOT] have been following lately in the World of Karen, Techno-Dweeb™; I have entirely revamped our home office and PC’s [but have my PC yet to wipe and reinstall XP. *Sigh*]
This entire fiasco of epic Techno-Headache proprotions was owing to certain children and their *whining* over a SIMs game.
Now that they are able to play SIMs again, we have uncovered a new feature in SIMs 2: The Social Bunny.
If your character is poor at socializing, or has failed to adequately meet and greet enough friends to the point of his “social” monitor decreasing to “empty” – A Giant Bunny drops from the sky: The Social Bunny.
The purpose of The Social Bunny is to interact and talk to your SIM to build up it’s socialization skills and social monitor points back to an acceptable level. All the social practice your SIM needs.
Ahhh!! Just what we could use in the Real World™-- Eh? A Social Bunny to aid the socially disaffected and ill-prepared. Or just to alleviate that awkwardness of poor-social skills.
Wouldn’t that be great!!! Something we could all use more of - Social Bunnies.
[And mercifully, when it’s job is done, The Social Bunny takes a big *HOP* and disappears back into the SIMs programming. We should all be so lucky!!]
