 You know you've played too much Sims when..   you see someone's status on Facebook saying Happy Friday and you think they are nuts because it is only Tuesday, then you realize it is Saturday (but Friday in another part of the world) but in game it is Tuesday.

Happens to me all the time.  Last night (IRL time) I closed the game thinking I had only hours to get up and go to work because it was Monday 1:00 AM in game.  It was only 10:12 PM Friday night.  Ahhhhhhhhh!  Did not want to reopen and reload because that takes about 20 minutes.  Soooooo not happy Jan!

We went out to dinner tonight at a hibachi restaurant.  Nephew was sitting beside me. 

You know you've been playing too much sims when...  the guy started doing the onion volcano and nephew says.  "Hey my auntie's Sim can do that!"

You know you've played too much Sims when you dream that you are in a musical production with half of the residents of Sunset Valley.

Really. That is what my subconscious mind dreamed up last night while I was sleeping. It was very elaborate too, with an evil scheme by the Altos as the main plot. I don't remember who discovered it and was trying to make the town realize what was going on...it was either Christopher or Connor, and no one believed him. There were a couple of subplots, like Gobias trying to learn how to dance, Geoffrey trying to win back Nancy's affection after something went wrong, and Morgana ice skating with Leighton.

It was a very odd dream, but a very fun one.

You know you've played Sims too much when your teacher called Mr Joria tells you that his wife his called Jamie and your brain instantly says "Your wife is called Jamie Jolina?" then you remember that he's called Mr Joria not Jolina  ;D

Well, you know you've been on the forum too much when you see "Mr. Joria" and the first thing you think is Joria from the forum.  ;D

When you dream that you have a Mysterious Mr. Gnome in your backyard, and you have to look to where he teleported to. When you find him, he's a new kind, with a cowboy hat and a machete, and you wonder about his traits, because he seems to look evil...

You know you play too much Sims when...
Your 30 seconds into loading a Sims 3 game file and you start pressing the 4 button like a crazed manic. (I have ADHD. So sue me.) And when the loading bar pauses loading, your press the P button and wait for it to move again. Once it does start moving, you "unpause the game" and press the 4 like a crazed manic..... ;D

My game takes about five mimutes to load so it may jusst be the normal loadding time. But I swear it goes faster when I press 4.

Now that I can really relate too.  But Sims don't have to sort out the whites and do two loads of laundry and washing up the dishes is just the plates not the pots and pans, glasses, cups and cutlery etc.  Oh how I wish real life chores were as easy as Sims.  I particularly want that baby swing were I could park my two granddaughters and never have to change nappies or feed them food they throw on the floor.  :P

You know you've played too much Sims when...you play standing up with the laptop balanced on the back of a chair for two hours because you need to work on your challenge game but are in too much pain to sit comfortably.  I actually did this last night after hurting my leg falling down the stairs.

Too funny :) I did something similar... when I was in labour with my son, I leaned on my chair when I needed to at intervals, then got back on the chair to play. Unfortunately for me, my sim got to have her baby before I did.

...you have withdrawal-like systems because your game won't work and then have a dream that you're pretending to be a druggie.

Yeah, I was way too early though. It had been over 6 years since I'd had my daughter and forgot how bad it should get. With my second daughter though, I was there for only a few hours, so it was good timing. Possibly a little too late for an injection I should have had though - but the midwife dilly-dallied too much. My sister, who was pregnant with her first, was very worried that I was leaving it too late, and was getting a real eye opener into what labour is really like! Sigh.. talking about it makes me wish I could have another one (hubby says no). Ah well. I'll have to live through my sims!
