When I do the panic dance because there's a spider on the wall. *facepalm* My fiance (who, sadly, doesn't play Sims) thought I was losing my marbles.




...He has Computer Whiz, Mean Spirited, Good Sense of Humor, Genius, and Night Owl traits, so I suppose that also explains the addiction.

I love drawing. I love fanart. Why haven't I done Sims fanart yet? O_o

I can see his point-Sims don't exactly look sane when they panic.

I do that with Sim hairstyles. I always want to try them out on me and then they never quite work out  :P

Or they can't harvest a plant because the plant is in the way.  I'm pretty sure that plant is not going to move out of the way.

That still bothers me in this one other game called Family Game Night 3! One of the minigames uses it… and I didn’t see his name in the credits. At least EA had co-developed it.

You break down after not playing for days. And when you ask your co-workers what would be the worst thing to happen to you, aside from someone dying, and they say "Your Sims died?" And your response is, "I said no one died!"

I was being bothered by some people at school today, and I wanted to click them and tell them “Stop doing that!” so badly. >:(

I’ve also been trying to fast-forward a lot of load screens lately. I guess getting more used to x-second load times set me off from the x-minute load times The Sims 3 offers. :-|

When you actually know the real song through simlish song and believed that was a simlish song first.
When you hear it in somewhere you probably say: "Hey! I believe that I ever hear this in The Sims instead hey, I know who sing this song."

I insist on singing "We Bah Yoo" instead of "We Are Young". I like it a lot better. Same singer anyway, so what's the difference, right?

Right. I agree with you, because the music itself I believe was universal language :)
You don't even have to understand it just to enjoy it.
Actually there's several song that I love more when I hearing it in simlish.
One of them is "Is She Better" that was sung by Caitlin Hart.
When I accidentaly found that this has a real song too, I was so excited, I want to find out what's the meaning.
But, when I hear the real song. I was kinda disappointed with the content, it like it's more better if I don't know the lyric.
But, I do still love the songs though (simlish version).

So, maybe I can add:

You know you've played to much Sims when you actually prefer listening Simlish song better and enjoying it more than the real one  ;D

Ooh, I didn't know that was a real one - I haven't paid too much attention to the songs - only that my hubby pointed out one that he knew. I like that one :D

That is actually real, Chuckles! I never believed myself also until I found her website.
I don't know if it's allowed post it here or not. But, if I can't, Moderators feel free to modify/remove this post. 
You can find her song here. You can preview the song too before you decide to buy it ^^

I love her song though as overall. I just don't like one word on her lyric :P
You'll understand when you hear it too.

The other song that I love is from He Is We - Happily Ever After. I love the both songs.
I want to write all song that I love in Simlish, but I haven't found any proper thread until now.
I'll be happy if I can found one.

Okay! Back to topic then :D

You know you've played too much Sims when your music playlist are all your favorite simlish songs!

That's right up there with hitting Shift-Ctrl-C when you should be pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del. I can't tell you how many times I've done that one. :P

Sometimes when I'm driving to work in the morning in my car I find myself humming the Sims loading song.

Datatat datatat... Daaaaaa-nanana Da-nana Na Na Na!

It's like I'm waiting for my real life game to load...
