Does anyone else wish you could speed up time like you can in the Sims?  :P

... you decide to stay up all night Simming!

(It's 3 minutes past midnight where I am but it's the school holidays so I have plenty time to sleep tommorrow)

Does anyone else wish you could speed up time like you can in the Sims?  :P

All the time. Especially in science and maths  :-\

We passed a billboard in Wichita, Kansas today that said, in giant bold letters, WOO-HOO!

I immediately started cracking up and my husband was clueless as to why. The billboard was advertising some amusement park or something (I think), but being a Simmer...well...that's not where my mind went. :P
I know that feeling. On fb, my brother once posted something about going to work, than he added a WOOHOO!! I told him if he only knew what that meant, he wouldn't be bragging about going to work to woohoo lol.

...When you're looking at your second obsession, the Thomson Dreamliners, you see that someone wants to name the first one Dreamweaver and you immediately think of Pam and all her Dreamweaver stories!

I’ve recently caught onto the moodlets thing, too. Some guys nearby were goofing around while I was trying to focus on something important, and I gave myself the “Surrounded by Idiots” moodlet. I don’t even think most of the moodlets I give myself are even in the game, lol. :D

Oh, and I started using The Sims 3 as a tool for taking pictures of objects to use in green-screening. Would you like to see a Motive Mobile out on a random (real) street? So be it.

“You ought to upgrade to Windows 7!”, they said. “It’ll help your games run so much better!”, they said. If I see them again, then they had better know how to stabilize an on-the-fritz copy of The Sims 3 that was working just fine on Windows XP.

... when you find a tiny shop called 'Legacy' and think of the legacy challenge and wonder if there's one called 'Dynasty'. Two days later, you pass a Chinese buffet called 'Dynasty' and you can't help laughing out loud with pure delight  ;D

...when you're on a train, and the conducter says the train is going all the way up to Bridgeport with stops in between, and the minute you hear Bridgeport, you lean over to ask your mom if there is lots of lag there  ::)

That's happened to me a few times. I swear every time I hear it, I'm watching TLC.
