Finished! Yay! Cue the music, maestro - you know my theme song: da, da, da, da, Send in the Clones!
Well, the clones and the other bugs made some wishes impossible to attain, but at least I managed to finish. I think my little band of misfits and I did not too badly, all things considered:
Jane (neurotic, bookworm, eco-friendly, snob, heavy sleeper. Ltw: professional author). 17 vacation days - 644,957 points
Harold (hates the outdoors, artistic, photographer's eye, neat, handy. Ltw: visionary). 20 vacation days - 608,807 points
Cookie (unlucky, natural cook, schmoozer, friendly, frugal. Ltw: 5-star chef). 30 vacation days - 607,635 points
Ludwig (unlucky, never nude, virtuoso, insane, absent-minded. Ltw: golden tongue, golden fingers) 33 vacation days - 605,051 points.
Which by my reckoning gives us a total of 2,466,450 happiness points. Now off I go in search of romance (for my sim, not me).
