Macaroni Cheese

Alice is still very hungry, so before she and Zedadias go to bed, she decides to cook a meal for them both.

Zedadias looks terribly anxious about this. This might be because this is the first time she has ever cooked, and she doesn’t exactly have a good track record with using his appliances so far.

Zedadias’ caution turns out to be justified. Alice burns the meal.

This doesn’t bother Alice much. I’m sure she’d eat anything at this point. Zedadias sits down and eats it with her, politely making no comment about the quality of the food.

Afterwards, they both get up to head for their beds. but it seems neither Alice nor I had realised quite how tired she was, as she collapses on the floor. It’s the first time she’s been given permission to sleep in a bed for a night, but she never even reaches it.

Zedadias doesn’t realise what’s happened. He’s already started on his important bedtime routine.

Next: Dawn

    Oh, poor Alice 😦

    • 2 Bhazor July 5, 2009 at 4:23 pm

      The first person to be nice to her is also a maniac.
      Thats just plain bad luck.

      • 3 Lily July 5, 2009 at 4:36 pm

        what can I tell you????? One of her traits is bad luck………….. But I still think you should wake her up and put her to bed……… Maybe Zed can carry her up???????? Just a thought

      • 4 Axe-Handler July 5, 2009 at 10:19 pm

        She does have the bad luck trait, but who knows? Maybe she likes childish sims who make faces at themselves?

      • 5 Yona96 July 5, 2009 at 10:46 pm

        He’s not insane, just childish.

      • 6 HAB July 18, 2009 at 9:29 pm

        he’s not a maniac. Zeddias has the “childish” trait, so when he clicks on the mirror, one of his options is to “play with it”.

      • 7 Tia Maria October 2, 2009 at 10:25 pm

        ROFL!!! But he’s a cute maniac!!! LOL!

    Zedadias is an awesome guy

  4. 15 sodasippa July 5, 2009 at 11:23 am

    Love the last pic! Hehe

  5. 16 boots July 5, 2009 at 11:25 am

    i want to give alice hugs. the shape she’s collapsed in is just pathetic and depressing, she’d look dead if there weren’t gigantic z’s popping out of her face.

    also, that is one sexy face, zeddy.

  6. 23 Elfie July 5, 2009 at 11:28 am

    WOW his routine looks remarkably like mine. If you don’t practice your “young irresponsible and aloof dude trying really hard not to look practiced” pose, it CAN fade away. Not a lot of people know this, and mourn it when they get older. Not me. I will be doing that horrible peace sign every time a camera is pointed at me until I die.

    • 24 Kat July 5, 2009 at 6:14 pm

      You made me laugh out loud.

      Rarely can anything on the internet elicit such a reaction from me anymore.


    • 25 Vodhozk July 6, 2009 at 2:55 am

      Ironically, I’m at the stage where I should be doing that and have long since given up. Honestly I’ve given up on any pictures, but that’s beside the point. Has anyone else been wondering what her new trait is? I can’t really think of any else to go with hers, and roBurky didn’t tell us, so…

  7. 27 thumbelina July 5, 2009 at 11:48 am

    Hey, anyone else notice that Zed is a total hottie? Maybe it’s just me… but damn.

  8. 39 rabassa1 July 5, 2009 at 12:01 pm

    They would totally make beautiful children.

    Your blog is great btw πŸ™‚

    Umm, i hope thats the link xD
    This guy does an “expirement” with the sims 3 and hes so fking funny !!
    I was crying with laughter!!

  12. 44 Swirlypepper July 5, 2009 at 12:50 pm

    Ahhh how lovely and domestic πŸ˜€ Such a shame she didn’t make it to bed, but I’m sure she’ll be allowed to stay over again. Z is too cute, love his face in the second to last picture ^^

  13. 45 Brytni July 5, 2009 at 12:58 pm

    i like his house

  14. 46 A-Sha July 5, 2009 at 2:31 pm

    LOLs Z cracked me big time -_-” Poor Alice. Tsk2~

  15. 47 Kimmeh July 5, 2009 at 2:50 pm

    Ahh D< great blog! Can't wait to see what happens!
    I've been following this for ages, but never got the courage to post a comment.

    But I was wondering if anyone could tell me where Zedadias lives?
    I mean, I have the game in dutch, so I'm guessing his name will be Dutchified. x_x; I just want my sims to stalk him, is all πŸ˜€

    • 48 Samantha July 6, 2009 at 5:26 am

      I have the game, he is suppose to live right across the street from alice, but he moved in to the house during the story. I didn’t realize it was right across the street from them and I moved my family into the house. Z is an npc but I’m not sure where he comes from. RoBurkey could have gone to edit toen mode and dropped z into the house or he could have grown up in the town ansd then moved there.

  16. 50 Leis July 5, 2009 at 3:18 pm

    lol, this should begin a new story…Alice and Zed! His weird “hobby” of facemaking just cracks me up every time. Imagine what their kids would be like, if they end up as a couple?!?

  17. 51 jess n. July 5, 2009 at 3:31 pm

    hey do any of you have the sims 3? did you guys have any problems installing it? ahh grr i do -_-. can i tell you the problem and if you know how to fix it, could you guys just reply to this. thanks a bunch.
    whenever i put the disk into my computer, nothing pops up so i went to my computer and double clicked on the sims 3 icon and it said that it wasn’t a valid win32 application. i have no idea whats wrong and i tried installing it on other computers and it worked but my other computers don’t have the system requirements so i can’t play it. does anyone know how to fix it or what the problem is? thanks a bunch you guys. i’m really annoyed and frustrated and i don’t wanna waste $50 :/

    • 52 Erika July 5, 2009 at 5:25 pm

      same thing happened to me… you must not have all the system requirements

      • 53 jess n. July 6, 2009 at 3:07 am

        no i do have the system requirements. i checked it and plus, my computer is a gaming computer as well. i just don’t get why thats happening. it stupid :S

    • 54 LiteratiTempo July 5, 2009 at 6:00 pm

      If you go to “”. They will tell you what you need, and/or what could be better.

  18. 55 decoysanchez July 5, 2009 at 3:33 pm

    This is awesome, I wonder if the couple thing will happen without any outside assistance?

    Zed is fantastic, is he a stock character or did you make him?

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets amusement from face making πŸ™‚

  19. 56 Mermaid July 5, 2009 at 3:34 pm

    But….what if his facemaking is a sign that he is insane, like Kev. Da Da Dummmm!

  20. 59 Madison July 5, 2009 at 3:35 pm

    zed is hot!!

  21. 60 Mikhail Boho July 5, 2009 at 4:16 pm

    Z is my all time new favorite hero.

    Omg! I wonder what the hell’s up with Kev?! :O

    Oh… Yeah… this is my very first post btw. xD

  22. 61 Sue July 5, 2009 at 4:24 pm

    k, right click on your dvd drive in my computer. Choose Install/Run. You probably have auto run turned off.

  23. 62 Amy July 5, 2009 at 4:36 pm

    Z-dude (Zedadias) is AWESOME!!!!! πŸ˜€
    AND WE JUST SAW HIS EYES!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!

    by the way, Madison, yes he is hot. πŸ™‚
    And he’s so sweet! He eats the food without complaint, he’s letting a homeless
    person sleep over at his house, and he hasn’t done ONE even slightly mean thing to her yet.

    Go Alice! Go Z! Go Alice! Go Z! xD πŸ˜€

  24. 63 Help! July 5, 2009 at 5:32 pm

    I love this story! It’s so awesome. I just wish I knew Zedadias’ last name! When I install Riverview on my game, it just craps out after 1 second of trying to load up the world. So can anyone tell me Zed’s last name so I can download him and put him in my game? Thanks in advance if anyone replies!

    And by the way, Zed and Alice would have dysfunctional, beautiful babies together. XD

  25. 64 LiteratiTempo July 5, 2009 at 6:00 pm

    Alice and Z OTP.

    • 65 kev4ever July 5, 2009 at 9:50 pm

      This Zedadias character seems too childish and self-involved for a serious relationship. Staring at himself in the mirror? Making funny faces? This is a grown man. Alice needs to find someone more mature and responsible like her father.

      • 66 stevensprincess July 5, 2009 at 10:24 pm

        did you really just say that kev is responsible and mature?
        ummm… i hope that was sarcasm. otherwise i doubt youve been reading the same posts as the rest of us.

      • 67 kev4ever July 6, 2009 at 4:07 am

        You just don’t understand Kev. He’s on higher level than the rest of us. He has to prepare Alice for the harsh realities she’ll have to face when he’s gone. You’ll understand when you’re a parent.

      • 68 Samantha July 6, 2009 at 5:33 am

        He’s not being self-absorbed, he’s entertaining himself without turning on the tv so he doesn’t accidentally wake up alice. AND i think alice needs someone who is childish, its a good way to help her have fun in life shes had to grow up far too fast.

      • 69 kev4ever July 6, 2009 at 5:53 am

        I just don’t understand why he doesn’t just read a book or something. He must not be able to read. I don’t think Alice should waste her time with someone who doesn’t even know how to read.

      • 70 Dancergirl July 6, 2009 at 6:38 pm

        He has the childish trait, so what? And Kev is not on a “higher level”, he’s just insane, mean-spirited, and he hates kids, if I remember correctly. The “harsh realities” you’re talking about don’t always seem to apply in the world of the Sims. The only thing Kev has taught her is that he is one of the meanest Sims in Riverview. I’m sorry if I offended you, but Z does not have any issues when compared to Kev.

      • 71 kev4ever July 6, 2009 at 9:55 pm

        I’m not offended, you’re just wrong. The world of the Sims is a dark, dangerous place with constant threats of starvation, sleep deprivation, and physical violence among others. If Kev doesn’t impart even this slim fraction of his wisdom to Alice, who would? Zedadias? What’s Zedadias taught Alice except how to burn macaroni and cheese and that if you sleep in others’ beds, they’ll only make funny faces at themselves? Alice needs to learn self-reliance, but Zedadias is only interested in taking advantage of her. Shameful, really.

  26. 72 haleY July 5, 2009 at 6:13 pm

    lol I think Z is hotter with the glasses…
    but after watching That 70’s Show too many times, I have a thing for sunglasses now because of Hyde haha (Hyde=hot)

    gosh, I hate saying stuff like that, I sound like a horny schoolgirl lol

    • 73 Azalea_Sway July 5, 2009 at 7:23 pm

      Oh yes… HYDE’S EFFING HOT. I thought I was the only one who thought that! πŸ˜€

      • 74 Rachel July 6, 2009 at 8:58 am

        Lol don’t worry. I third that. He was by far my favorite character on that show. Hyde, Eric, Donna, Fez, Jackie, and Kelso. In that order of most to least favorites. And then when Randy came he was last. But if you count Lorie then she was last…

        lol why am I talking about this on a Kev and Alice post?

  27. 75 kyli July 5, 2009 at 6:43 pm

    rofl, mr muscles is too charming.

  28. 76 Sarah July 5, 2009 at 6:44 pm

    I am proud to say that I shipped Alice and Zedadias from Z’s first appearance. I roll like that.

    Anyone else notice that Zed is *cut*?

  29. 77 Azalea_Sway July 5, 2009 at 7:19 pm

    Woooooow. Zed’s pretty good looking! ;p

  30. 78 Athena July 5, 2009 at 7:31 pm

    Hmm… Do I sense a future romance?

  31. 79 Alyssa July 5, 2009 at 7:48 pm

    Those last two pictures are awesome xD

  32. 80 Nicole July 5, 2009 at 7:57 pm

    Alice and Zed would be so good together!
    I agree with most when I say they should definetly get married!
    They would be so good togetherrr.

  33. 81 Miao July 5, 2009 at 8:05 pm

    Zed’s childish–that’s why he’s making silly faces at the mirror. Childish >>> Insane + Mean-Spirited, though.

    Alice looks so pitiable in the third picture. I wanted badly to lift her and place her onto a bed and to get rid of all of her painful memories. If only that were possible.

  34. 82 livvi July 5, 2009 at 8:14 pm

    Haha poor, unlucky Alice.

    XD Zedidas, you goof.

    They need to get married. Now.

  35. 83 QueenL14616 July 5, 2009 at 8:17 pm

    I love this story. Why doesn’t Alice just move in with Zedadias, they seem like they are becoming good friends and maybe more? This could be like a rags to riches story. Where is Kev anyways?

  36. 84 Celara July 5, 2009 at 9:36 pm

    I don’t know if you would interfere on Alice’s behalf in this instance, Robin, but I know lots of us would at least like to see Alice sleep in a real bed for a change. πŸ™‚

    I too am wondering about what will happen next to Kev, and how this blossoming relationship with Zed will go. I’m glad to see that Zed was able to allow Alice to try her hand at cooking. For a first attempt, a burnt meal was the least of his problems. I was worried she would burn down his house!

    I’ve been working on my own Sims 3 story, and it can be difficult. With mine being a family story, it’s sometimes hard finding something that is a plot twist (toilet training is a bit tedious). There are a few things that have been interesting twists that were certainly unexpected.

    • 85 Sarah July 5, 2009 at 11:53 pm

      Yeah, I agree. Though I was watching a documentary on this homeless fellow who was given like $150,000 to do with as he would. I remember a scene where he got himself a hotel room, but couldn’t bear to sleep on the bed because he hadn’t done so in years and he said the bed was too soft. So yeah, he slept on the floor even though there were two queen beds next to him.

  37. 86 Manda July 5, 2009 at 10:23 pm

    Haha, looks like Alice did a little too much birthday partying.
    Also, I LOVE the grossed-out expression on her face in the second picture as she’s burning the mac n cheese. Priceless.

  38. 87 CHap July 5, 2009 at 11:13 pm

    Hahaha I love Zedadias. He’s cute. I’m personally rooting for him and Alice to end up together! So cute C:

  39. 88 Rhea Ewing July 5, 2009 at 11:38 pm

    Zedadias is adorable in the last two panels, and I’m glad things are going… well, decently for Alice. Passing out on the floor is better than outside!

    Definitely disagree with all the comments saying that the two should get married though–what’s wrong with being friends? And what kind of message would it send if that is how she gets out of homelessness? “Homeless women can/should just shack up with some guy and all their problems will be over”? I would like to see her improve her life through her own power and the support of friends like Zedadias, rather than be “saved” by him.

    • 89 Sarah July 6, 2009 at 1:29 am

      Who’s saying Zedadias is saving her from anything? There’s nothing wrong with being in a relationship either.

      • 90 Rhea Ewing July 6, 2009 at 4:59 am

        I don’t really think there’s anything wrong with being in a relationship, I just question the assumption that they should be in a relationship just because they’re friends and she needs help–which so far is all we’ve seen of them. And maybe I was misreading people’s comments, and if I did I apologize.

        As the story continues and we get more information it might become clear that it really is best for her character and what she wants, in which case I’ll change my mind. For now I’d just like to see where things go and watch Alice grow.

    • 91 Sarah Joan July 6, 2009 at 2:57 am

      I agree with Rhea, I dont think Alice and Zed should ‘shack up’and get romantically involved . Think interesting, people!

      If Alice does move in, Zed should start dating another sim, and Alice should improve a skill in some area. It be interesting to see what Zed’s girlfriend thinks of Alice.

      I’d like to Alice get some regular board and baths.

  40. 92 ZoΓ© July 5, 2009 at 11:42 pm

    As a long time player of “The Sims”, I really love your blog. Why doesn’t Alice just move in with Zedadias?

    • 93 Maddi July 6, 2009 at 4:13 pm

      I wish in a way that she would, but then again, the story would be less interesting then. But maybe if she just visited him every now and then to at least get some decent sleep and get her fun bar filled, she could make money on her own and start to build up her lot.. She *could* be successful in just about any job if she tried really hard to keep the aforementioned needs up and went to the library to improve her skills. It would take a long time, but eventually she would be able to establish herself and also make more friends through work. πŸ™‚

  41. 94 saw July 5, 2009 at 11:45 pm

    haha did u see the face Zededias was making! haha

  42. 95 Sayoni July 6, 2009 at 1:09 am

    owww poor thing

  43. 96 Sayoni July 6, 2009 at 1:09 am

    poor girl

  44. 97 Prudence July 6, 2009 at 1:20 am

    Is it just me, or are the chapters getting shorter?

  45. 98 Lescentive July 6, 2009 at 1:27 am

    can’t wait to see where you take it, i left alice and kev homeless in my neighborhood but my sim gives her hugs, meals, and a night stay when she wanders over.

  46. 99 dramalama July 6, 2009 at 2:56 am

    Zed has his glasses off in “Maybe it’s better to be smelly” also

  47. 100 Holly July 6, 2009 at 3:00 am

    Hey My sim Fibi is Kind of Like alice and Kev. (Not trying to copy I just thought it would be cool to be homeless) So I checked it out first with a Test Family. I really liked it! I Felt Bad for the toddler though. Anyway FIbi is a level 8 guitarist and she earns about 300 $ in tips anyway. I thought hmm how will this be a good Idea. Then those 300 dollar tips doesn’t cover a 2,000 bill…So shes Homeless Now..Poor Fibi…Oh well nice story!

  48. 101 addtwo July 6, 2009 at 3:24 am

    lol that last piece about Zedaidas is hilarious! Such a sweet character

  49. 102 katierose July 6, 2009 at 5:01 am

    Poor alice its not like shes ever really got to work on her cooking skill my she will spend more time at zed’s house and work on it and mext time she wont burn the food
    also what happend to kev did he ever get back frome stonehinge

  50. 104 Kimmberly July 6, 2009 at 5:11 am

    i loved it.i hope that Alice and Zed get married and have children.i am not trying make a suggestion and telling u should do that.(i think u should listen to yourself cause your and no one elses stories are as awesome as yours.)any ways i think that Alice and Zed should get married because they r both gorgeous and would have gorgeous kids.

  51. 105 Emore July 6, 2009 at 6:33 am

    Z is damn sexy for a sim. ;D
    Him and Alice need to get married and have babies! Alice would make a GREAT mother. πŸ˜€

  52. 106 auradis July 6, 2009 at 7:20 am

    Great, now I am intensely craving mac&cheese.

  53. 107 Questionmark July 6, 2009 at 8:24 am

    I think they should get into a relationship and have a baby!

  54. 108 SmaJLe July 6, 2009 at 11:08 am

    What an amazing story. Seriously, it’s impressive how far the Sims got with this version. Anyone remembers the first sims? It just became even less comparable..

    • 109 Nicola July 6, 2009 at 5:06 pm

      I remember the first Sims. I still have it, as a matter of fact. I should go back and play it and then compare/contrast “The sims” and “The Sims 3.” I wonder how bored I would be after playing “The sims” for one minute after playing The Sims 3 for an hour…

  55. 110 fontgoddess July 6, 2009 at 6:41 pm

    Is it just me, or does anyone else think Zed’s childish trait is exactly what helps make this relationship work? Alice didn’t have a proper childhood, so Zed might help her feel some of the relief and joy that children get to enjoy. The childish trait may also let Zed remain calm and carefree when Alice does something inappropriate. I think this relationship might just work πŸ™‚

  56. 112 Payton July 7, 2009 at 1:54 am

    I still VERY MUCH hope that something happens between these two. And I think it’s adorable how childish Zedadias is! Those two are fantastic for each other!

  57. 113 Esther July 9, 2009 at 7:34 pm

    I LOLed. Literally.

  58. 114 lightninginyoureye July 18, 2009 at 6:55 pm

    Zedadias is so adorable!!!

  59. 115 Shirviu December 17, 2009 at 11:49 am

    Honestly, she never had a childhood of her own guys. I think the ‘childish’ trait is a good thing. :3

  60. 116 Jess May 8, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    LOL!! His important bedtime routine!!
