OH MY Gosh! It finally happened to me too. I saw someone who looked vaguely familiar, and realized he looked like a sim. Unfortunately for him he looked like a young adult Arlo Bunch. I had to pretend I was smirking at something cute my baby did!!
Poor guy!! LOL

Definitely played too much Sims when ... I had this dream that I had to do a safety induction on a building site and I was driving to the site.  The roads became different and I realised I was driving along Redwood Parkway when I drove past Agnes's house.  I said to myself I need to turn right at the T intersection at the hospital and then left at the Spa to get back to the highway.  I tried to call the Principal Contractor to say I would be delayed and found I couldn't click on my smart phone because I couldn't find the tab with the backpack symbol!  I woke up agitated that I'd messed up an important appointment only to realise that I don't actually have a job anymore!   That's what have I been doing since I was made redundant.  Simming just about every day!  ::)

When you automatically type 'sims 3' into the search field before what you are looking for. In my case, knitting.

...when you feel genuinely saddened after reading a Sims newspaper pop-up saying Christopher Steel has been electrocuted to death on Week 1, Day 3 of a new game.  :'(

I get attached, I can't help it.

When you see on your sim's relationship panel that Agnes just aged into an elder, and you drop everything to merge her into your house just to give her a fountain of youth elixir.  ;D

You can throw it at her without her being in the house.  I has Malcolm do it to Gunther in my life states dynasty especially since he was the only living Goth/Crumplebottom.

....when you're in Social Studies, quietly taking notes off the computers like everyone else, and the girl is listenting to music. So loud you can hear it, and you think it's simlish. And then, you think you hear your sim's phone rining, and almost click the screen to answer it  ::)

When going places or watching TV I find myself looking at the designs on walls, floors, furniture or outfits and wondering how hard that would be to remake it into a pattern for The Sims.
But on the upside I've found that I notice things that I normally wouldn't have before The Sims. So in a way The Sims have made me more aware of my surroundings. :) So playing The Sims is a good thing, right.

I told my boyfriend that whenever he's around I get a +10 Attractive Company moodlet.  He would have made fun of me if it weren't for the fact that we both refer to people's abilities in terms of D&D (for example, we were watching Tangled and he noted that Flynn must have a lot of ranks in Climb and I pointed our Rapunzel's apparent Improvised Weapon finesse).  So I guess that means I play Sims and D&D way too much XD

Well...

If you create peoples that you hate in the real world in The Sims 3 and kill them in inhumane way as possible by experimenting with what kind of death that you can do in the game and have a fiendish delighted moodlet after that. After the killing session ended, you just walk happily like an cute little angel and innocent little girl with no problem ;D

After my dad walked out on us I seriously considered doing exactly that XD  He's an electrician in real life so I planned on making him die from electrocution just for the lawls >.>

Lol yup - just what I was coming to say. I've been 'patternising' everything. Hmm, my PJs: Tulips, darker edges, middle the same colour the background - I could get away with that on one channel, and the turquoise leaves and the white highlights in two other channels. My bedspread: Yup, that's a sticker - too many colours.

When you spend so much time making patterns for sims, that when you actually play, you press CTRL+ALT+Z and wonder why it won't undo.

When you go to bed, and you see pixels dancing in front of your eyes. You're still selecting, and inverting, and deselecting, and selecting inverse...

When you're out in public and you see a policeman standing near a police car and think "great! two photographs," then you see a group of four people eating and reach for your phone to photograph that without thinking.

When you assign moodlets to yourself.

I was harassing a former friend (Long story short, she never really liked me), and then I just randomly decided I was fiendishly delighted.  That day I was also "Fulfilled". Wish obviously being "Be mean to _______)

And today, I assigned myself "Having a Blast" Because I TOTALLY TOTALLY Fanboyed (Basically, fangirled) over new Music Videos from my favorite girl groups. Too Much sims, Am I right?

Ooh, now I want to actually go out and take some real photos and see if I can supermax photography in real life! Granted, I'm not going to get too many of the supernatural type ones (that's supernatural, not Supernatural).

When you do a factory reset and then have to re-download and re-install all your Store content, and seeing it all together like that makes you realize you've probably spent more money on clothes for your Sims than on stuff for yourself.  ::)

I thought I played a lot of sims just because the sun comes up and I'm still playing from the night before. After reading the last few pages; some of you are totally nuts. LOL ;D

You know you've done that when your Sim's outfits take longer to load than the game...  I hate sending mine to the dresser for that reason.  Once they're dressed, they stay in the same outfits until they reach elder.
