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.

... when you hear an ad for something unrelated to Sims that uses the Sims 3 buy mode music, and wonder how much Steve Jablonsky/EA got paid. :P

Especially when they rant about not being able to get to the bookcase because the bookcase is in the way. . ???

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. :-|
