When we last visited our little dumpster diver she had not only completed a beautiful, if eclectic house she had started her life as a private investigator. She has already completed two cases, although they were easy to solve, and has managed to already find her way back to digging through trash.

When we open up the house and do a quick search for Bobbie, we discover she is still warm and snug in her bed. She is dreaming of her life, and more specifically her job.

After she wakes up we notice that not only is the computer broken but the dishwasher is as well, and there is a puddle of water. Bobbie goes to clean up the puddle of water but complains that the rug is in the way. I would think the rug would soak in some of the water, but maybe the leak is just that bad.

We decide to give repairing the thing a shot, in hopes that it can be done without damage and things were going along well, I thought she was going to get away with it, but then suddenly, nope.

She then complains that the food processor is also in the way. Bobbie, I would think if the food processor is in the way it’s actually the countertop it’s sitting on and not the actual device.

Perhaps the food processor was actually in the way of what comes next.


Bobbie awakes from a TERRIBLE TERRIBLE dream where everything in her house was out to get her, all the salvaged items were blocking her path at every turn and death was her end.

So obviously I couldn’t just let her die, and since she had done 2 whole things, woke up and get electrocuted I decided to re-start the save.

When she lightly crawled out of bed and crept to the door to peer out Bobbie saw the smoke coming from both the dishwasher and the computer. She pulled out her phone and rang a repair man.

Bobbie: *thinking* If I get them repaired properly maybe they will like me more.

She slowly opens the fridge and grabs some breakfast and all seems peaceful. The rug remains in place on the floor, out of the way, the food processor doesn’t attempt to prohibit her food making. All seems right in the world. Just in case though, she decides to go watch TV upstairs.

It’s then she gets her first case for the day. A policeman is worried about a hacker hacking into the library computer. Bobbie vows to get to the bottom of the case.

Bobbie heads off to snope around the suspected hackers home and gets to look not only at their mail, but dig through their trash too. Bobbie approaches her job with the up most care, but also the vigor of someone born for this.

She gets the dirt, and the proof she needs, on the suspect and heads back to inform the police of her findings. He is very happy to have what he needs to stop this.

Feeling energized and ready for another case Bobbie heads to the library to use one of their computers. She vows to buy herself a laptop to carry around once she has the money. Sitting at the library computer she pulls up her website to see if any new clients have requested her assistance, and sure enough a little girl wants her help in discovering who used her toothbrush.

The case may not be one that Bobbie would normally attempt to take, but she is still in the process of making a name for herself, and no little girl should have someone use her toothbrush. Bobbie sets out to meet the young girl and get the scoop.

It seems she doesn’t have a lot to go on, but believes there is someone who might know the information.

Client: She might be persuaded to talk, if you know what I mean

Bobbie knows what she means and heads in to talk to the woman. After some idle chit chat Bobbie gives it the straight forward approach first. The woman claims to know nothing, so Bobbie tries to grease her palm a little, not getting much out of her still.

Deciding it’s all to plausible there is no information to get, Bobbie heads back to the little girl, and discovers it was all a ruse. Something to get Bobbie to hand over her cold hard cash. Well, jokes on her, she didn’t give much money to the woman but she got back her entire fee.

With the afternoon feeling like a bit of a bust Bobbie goes to the festival in town and takes a picture in the photo booth and looks around before heading home for the night.

That night Bobbie once again dreams about her work. She dreams of getting the evidence.

Swimming through anything she has to to….

In order to get the dirt she needs. Even if that means digging through more trash…..it is what she is good at after all.

Bobbie wakes up the next morning still a little wary of her house, but in better spirits and decides to spend the cool morning working on her logic skill.

While practicing Bobbie receives wonderful news from the agency. They are very happy with her work so far.

When the phone call comes in with a case Bobbie is ready to handle it. This is a case of love, or rather a determination of if it’s love. The client’s name is VJ and he want to propose, but doesn’t want to make a fool of himself. So he asks if we can snoop around.

Bobbie talks with his family, none of whom think very highly of this girl. Either she is not someone VJ should be with, or they are very particular, possibly closed-minded about their boy.

Since it is difficult to learn anything definitive from his family, other than their dislike of the girl, Bobbie takes a different approach. Hacking into the girls computer. Her social media pages, her email, anything that might give a hint of what she things of VJ.

The news was not good. This girl didn’t love VJ. Turns out his family was probably right. She thought nothing of him, talked about him to no one and seeming didn’t care. Bobbie brought the news back, closing out her file in the process.

Calling it a night, Bobbie heads home, another successful case under her belt. She is now a level 3 investigator and hopefully will be getting tossed a few more cases.

Tonight Bobbie dreams of cooking. Finding that next great recipe.

Making that perfect meal, the best dish.

One that leaves no dirty dishes…..nothing to throw into the dishwasher.

I have been playing sims since TS1 and even played a little bit of the PS2 version and the mobile versions over time. Once I discovered challenges for TS2 I never looked back. I love the sims, the families I've been able to make, and play through the years and connecting with people about them. I work from home doing Salesforce Data Validation for my company, have 2 cats I adore and have a million hobbies I feel like I will never have time to completely explore.
