Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out! This week’s post comes to us from one of our long time friends and she who runs Futurama Addicts and Family Guy Addicts…Russian Tigger!
Somehow, between writing loads of posts for FWOT Addicts and FGA Addicts, RT found the time to knock out a fun guest post for TSTO! (overachiever!) So check out her hilarious take on becoming part of TSTO.
Enjoy it my friends! Here’s Russian Tigger… -Alissa
Honey, I’ve Shrunk The Addicts
So you’re sitting there just a tap, tap, tapping away, and suddenly you start to think about how much fun it would be to shrink ray yourself and hop right into that miniature Springfield you’ve so lovingly brought to life.
Surely I’m not the only one whose imagined doing this? Oh, I sense silence in the room. So you’re seriously telling me you’ve never thought about: visiting the little town you’ve built from scratch; paying a visit to everyone’s favorite dysfunctional family; popping into the pub for a Flaming Moe, and you’ve most definitely never thought about staging a daren’tl protest outside the nuclear plant. Ok I get it, you’ve never, ever, ever thought about wandering those Springfield sidewalks just to see where your little tapping feet take you.
Well, that’s in the past as your thinking about it now aren’t you? You’re not so tiny minds are transporting you to your little towns, you can see yourselves in there, can’t you? Don’t deny it, I can see a glint in your eyes about the game that’s not been there since 3 Act events were introduced. But let’s not ruin the moment by talking about that.
Instead, let your mind wander a little further and think about the fun that’s to be had should your virtual and your reality collide. Why? Because I want you to share your innermost Springfield secrets with us.
Picture this, Professor Frink has beamed you into your little Tapped Out town, but what will lilliputian you do? To help us find out I’m granting you three wishes, these will let you choose where you’d live, where you’d work and what you’d do in your spare time, and you’ll have lots of it since you wouldn’t be spending your days and nights tapping anymore.
Now we’ve got the general idea of the way, let’s start with where would you live, tell us where you’d call home, where you’d want to rest your weary little head at night? Would you insist on being given a free land token so you could take your own home with you? Or would you leave all that behind and move to Evergreen Terrace hoping no-one would notice you squatting in Bart’s treehouse? Or maybe you fancy setting yourself up in the Spinster Apartments or Bachelor Arms where you could boast of having Patty, Selma or Kirk as your neighborino. Or do the mansions of the super-rich in Springfield Heights call to you? After all, you worked hard to be a virtual billionaire, you might as well reap the rewards.
And once your housing situation is sorted, you got to get yourself a job to pay for it, well unless you’re hanging out in Springfield Heights, in which case you’ll let someone else work to pay for it. But back to the business at hand of your new virtual career, just what’s calling to you. Would you stick to what you do now or would you like to try something new? How’s about bringing a little health and safety to the nuclear plant, or would you like to replace Smithers and be Mr Burns’ up close and very personal assistant, would you earn your living by becoming a minor celebrity at KBBL Radio, or use your Kwik E Mart farming experience to get a job working for Apu? Or maybe, just maybe, you’d want to do a Wookiee and work in a theme park, after all, Krustyland could be doing with some fresh ideas, maybe you think you could be the one to save it?
And finally, all work and no play is just not allowed on this site, so with your housing sorted, and the bills paid, let’s talk about your free time and the fun animated tasks you could do to pass it. I want you to tell us just what would we be watching you get up to? Wait, hold it there backup up guys remember the site is PG, so scrub that thought and think of a new one or two pronto, please. To get you thinking about this I’ve come up with a few for our Addict Hosts, Alissa, Safi, Patric & Wookiee. But which of the animated tasks below belongs to which Addict? Can you guess?
Task 1: Ride the Monorail like it’s a roller coaster!
Task 2: Be a bliss ninny about potty training!
Task 3: Statistically analyse the risks of a nuclear meltdown!
Task 4: Get waxed for charity!
Oh and since I’m having so much fun here I’m going to be real generous and allow you one more wish, yes you can have yet another animated task but this time you can share it with another character in the game. Yes I’m going let you hang out on a joint task with your favourite character and what’s more important I’m letting you decide what you get up to, but again remember this is a PG site, so keep any Kirk and his acorns type thoughts to yourself.
Anyway I guess since I started this madness I should be the first to share my thoughts, so here we go.
Well despite being uber allergic to cats I think I’d like to live with the Crazy Cat Lady. Why, because she’s bat poop crazy and I’m presuming having to be tidy wouldn’t be in my rental agreement.
And how would I pay my rent, well probably in cat food, but that’s not what you meant is it? You mean what job would I do? I’d be a donut tester. Why? Well, it’s a good, honest way to get free donuts.
And when work is finished for the day I’d indulge in a few hobby-related animated tasks, these would be “Shoot wildlife…..with a camera” and “Play Family Guy: Quest For Stuff whilst no one is looking”.
And who would I want to hang out with, oh that’s easy Goth Lisa, we’d engage in a joint task of “Hanging out at the graveyard”.
So there’s my little slice of virtual reality, I look forward to hearing yours. Oh and apologies in advance to Patric for calling our towns tiny, little, small but it’s a well-known fact us girls don’t mind anything we have being referred to as small, tiny or little unlike……..
Thanks, Russian Tigger for giving us all something to think about, while laughing hysterically! What are your thoughts on being shrunken down into Springfield?
As always we love hearing from you guys…so if you have an opinion or take on something going on in the game (or something that should be going on in the game), please send it along to us TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com…
