You really, really wish you could 'resetSim' on your boss to make him go away... even just for a while  ::)

Welcome to the forum, Cara.  :) 

We already have a thread about this topic so I'm going to merge this thread into that one.

When you wake up in the morning and imagine the Well Rested moodlet +30 for 10 hours.
When anything you do, see or hear reminds you of Sims.

This thing really happened. I played Sims so late into the night that you might say it was actually quite early :D and when I woke up in the morning I was so tired I tried to press pause and continue sleeping, while the rest of the world was on pause.

When you start checking out computer classes so you can be a better simmer.

There are classes for that!  Oh man sign me up!  My Sims never do what I want them to do - only what my limited knowledge allows them to do!  ::)

That's a good idea  :D I was in calculus the other day -we're doing kinematics - and I saw 'dv' (to represent the derivative of velocity) and wondered why on earth they were talking about Dragon Valley.

As much as I would love a simming class, I actually think about taking real computer classes so that when my game crashes or glitches I can just say "I know how to fix that!"  I'm always terrified to do updates and move files around because I'm so computer illiterate.

Me too!  I wish there was a class in my area but I live in a small rural area, so I have to drive into the city for that.  Maybe when Sims 4 comes out, that'll be my incentive to learn.

... you are walking along a street at nightfall and you hear an unusual noise above you and flashing lights, and you think 'but I don't even OWN a telescope, and I haven't found any spacerocks, so I can't be abducted by aliens' and then 'just as long as they don't probe me ...

You rage at your Sims for playing computer games for the whole day but then you realise you do the same thing.

But your games probably aren't that noisy or at least have volume control.

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. I get so annoyed when my sims just stand around when they have terrible mood bars. You're tired? Well you could always go to bed. You're starving? Eat the fresh, high-quality food you just prepared!

I don't know the names of . . . any of my  neighbors, but I know the names, traits, and lifetime wishes of every SV townie.

Yup, i do not know the names of most of the people that live in my apartment or the ones next to me, but i can name almost all the Townies and their roles. Like if i see one of the college students knocking at my door because they want a computer-based accessory or something similiar, i propably never saw them at all, but if i had an heart attack and ended up in SValley as a late teen\early young adult, and say, Bessie Clavell found me, i would say "OMG You're Bessie Clavell! You're Stiles McGraw's best friend! You used to be a musician and you have a son named Xander! When Buster dies, can you take an Young Again potion so you can marry Stiles and become Ms. McGraw and then have children from him?" & she goes "Wha??? Oh, right, you must have been one of my fans or whatever back in my carreer as the Orchestra Lead in my days! Sorry but i do not think i even know a Stiles something? Ah, you mean the current Music Talent Scout? But he's Xander's age! I would never marry him! And i do not know where to find an Youth Potion!" and le such.

I really wanted to. It was his nose I think. I'm probably scarred for life. So now we know who EA based Arlo on.

If you live in California it's possible that the facial features of the Bunches were based on the facial features of interesting people like that kid's family that was friends with the people that make the games. And if he looked like Arlo Bunch as a kid, maybe he would grow up looking differently (and hotter) than how Arlo actually grows up...

Ha! That was fantastic! :D

In all seriousness, my phone knows a few sim names thanks to my copious use of the forum app. It even wanted to autocorrect "landgrid" to "Landgraab" once. I. Kid. You. Not. :P

:-[ I get in trouble for having my games too loud. And yes, I play 'til my energy bar is completely red, and then some. I get a 'pumped' moodlet while I'm playing games, especially while the gameplay is very rewarding.

I also 'play' in my sleep. It's like my brain still thinks I'm at the computer, and I don't actually get quality sleep.

This happens to me too. Especially when I'm just beginning a dynasty or challenge, but then, I've never been a good sleeper.

It happens to me too but in my dreams my Sims accomplish so much more and I wake up annoyed because I get confused with what they've done and not done, so now I keep a checklist.  No so much for what they've done, that's in their journals, but for the things I want them to do.  Checklist and highlighter pen are my constant companions when I play.  Yep I definitely play too much Sims.
