CJ heads down to City Hall, having settled on his first chosen career. He emerges with an interesting new career outfit. 

After another couple hours of fishing without a single catch, CJ is ready to put an actual hook into play. Those fish shouldn’t have made him look so inept! Who needs fish friends when there is fishy revenge to be had.

So, I guess fishing might not be your thing, CJ?
*sniffs* I thought the fishies were my friends! 
Well, to be fair, sending a line with a hook on it to catch them doesn’t seem too friendly, you know. 
Oh… Am I supposed to use a hook?

Once the sun is fully up, CJ decides to try fishing from a different spot and immediately manages to knock himself out with the pole.

While CJ contemplates what the future holds, Carl introduces him to the fine art of fishing. Carl reels in many nice specimens, but CJ isn’t having any success at all.

CJ is so happy that Lyric doesn’t find it odd at all that he’s talking with and through a doll that he casts a little good luck her way.

CJ is going to let Snuggles announce the new generation rules. In case you don’t speak Imaginary Friend, the translation is below! :P
Steele Legacy Generation 43
A new generation, a new roll and new rules.
[[MORE]]
Marital Structure:  Single
 Number of Children:  One
 Income:  Primary -Job Hopper
Miscellaneous: No Strangers - You may not call any service Sims to the lot. This includes pizza delivery Sims and babysitters; if both of your Sims have to work, tough! (This used one of the two Jokers (re-rolls) I had rolled thus far – originally the goal required redecorating the whole house – and since I just built/decorated the house for the last generation, I decided to reroll.)
 Generation Goal:   Living Green -  Must live eco-consciously. These restrictions take effect when the heir of the generation they’re rolled for becomes a young adult, and continues until the next generation’s heir reaches young adulthood. 
* Must never take taxis. Carpooling to work or using the fire engine is ok, but Sims must bike at all other times. If a Sim takes a taxi, that’s ok, but cancel the action and give them whatever bike they’d lost asap. Sims caught out without a bike must walk or jog until they arrive at a lot where you can give them a bike.
* Must use an eco-friendly laundry system. This consists of the expensive washing machine and a clothesline (no dryer allowed!). You may have multiple washing machines and clotheslines.
* Must grow your own produce and fish your own fish. You may purchase meat, dairy, eggs, etc from the store, but nothing that you can normally grow in your own garden or fish out of water. Cake and baked goods from the toy oven are okay to eat. Your Sim doesn’t have to eat organic or vegetarian food, normal food is ok, as long as you’ve grown the produce yourself.
* Must not waste fuel flying around the world. Your Sims may only take one vacation per week.
* If your Sim invents, you may not purchase scrap. You must salvage it on your own.
* You may not purchase ‘new’ furniture via the buy mode this generation, with the exception of bikes, bike racks, recycling bins, and your eco-friendly laundry system. You must obtain it ‘used’ from the junkyard, or steal it from community lots and other homes. The exception is if you are playing generation 1, in which case you may purchase as many beds, cribs and hampers as necessary, all toddler/child toys, one fridge, one oven, two sinks, one toilet, one shower, one dresser, one mirror, one bookcase, one counter for food preparation and one counter for a drop in sink. In addition, your family may buy enough seating to accommodate the total number of Sims rolled for that family (so, if you rolled couple with two kids, that’s seating for four). You may buy whatever type of seating you prefer, but it must be just enough to seat the number of Sims. So, if it’s seating for four, you may buy four dining chairs, or a two seat sofa and two dining chairs, or a three seat sofa and one living chair, etc. You may also purchase one table (like a dining table if you opted for dining chairs, or a coffee table if you chose a sofa set.) If you rolled for a self-employed career like artist or inventor, you may buy the required object to do the job. Exception is for author, you may not buy a computer, desk and chair. Use the library to write your novels. There are no restrictions on build mode or on purchasing lighting fixtures. You may buy as many plants as you like for decoration, but no other decorative items may be purchased. you may buy a burglar and fire alarm. [I plan to disregard this part of the rules to some extent. I will purchase sparingly and as needed, but he will need to use buy mode (for reasons).]
* Your Sim must either create a new park/nature-themed lot from scratch, or improve significantly upon an existing lot. In both cases, the Sim must fund the project by subtracting the cost of the improvements or entire lot from the family funds.
 Miscellaneous:  No Strangers - You may not call any service Sims to the lot. This includes pizza delivery Sims and babysitters; if both of your Sims have to work, tough!

For the official passing of the torch to the 43rd generation, Muse throws a party and invites the family over (and one random kid who crashed the party). It could just be that Muse needed to deliver some produce to her daughter for an opportunity and this was an easy way to get her daughter to show up, but CJ likes to think the party was really for him!

CJ grows up an Artistic, Neurotic, Evil and Insane Sim who is a Born Performer. His LTW is to be a Jack of All Trades.

It is CJ’s birthday and he not only sneaks off to do homework, but also sneaks off to school! So much fail!

See, CJ. There are some benefits to having a baby around.

Well, maybe having my own lollipop machine wouldn’t be so bad… Maybe I could adopt one!

I suppose that’s a possibility…
