I catch myself humming the buy/build music now and then. ;D

Also, I understand way too much Simlish and catch myself using it irl! lol

Whenever I go shopping and I see any nice outfits someone is wearing or find clothes that I like, I would think "My sims would look great in this".

Then I make myself go play Assassins Creed for awhile.

...when your significant other says they will not talk to you if you speak simlish to them. My boyfriend lives in Holland, and we speak on Skype all the time. I did the mistake of greeting him with 'Shaka Brahh' once.

I've played Sims since 2000 or so, but I wouldn't say I'm addicted. I prefer 'dedicated'. It sounds better.
I wake up every day planning to be productive, but a voice in my head says 'hahaha good one' and we laugh and laugh and take a nap.

"Dedicated."

I like that. I'm going to use it.

I'm pretty sure making families "just in case you have a story idea" counts as playing it too much.

Not like I did that last night or anything... >_>

...the aforementioned family you made for no reason what-so-ever you now want to turn into a story.

Not like I haven't got 2 to do already or anything, and a Pathfinder campaign to write. Thanks for that brain.

<snerk> I know that feeling. You wouldn't believe how many sims story ideas I have kicking around in my brain, and now I'm starting to play with Blender to create my own poses for pose player. As if I already didn't have enough to do. :P

Ah stuff it. A third story can't hurt I don't think... famous last words right there.

I think I had a dream a couple nights ago about an apocalypse, Loki (not Hiddleston, but possibly the Loki in one of the sims stories posted in this Forum) and it all took place in a very meta Sims 3 game.

Alright, Nova, time to start cutting back on the sims now...

I use the touch pad on my laptop to play and the tip of my right index finger is sore. When it becomes calloused, I'll seek help.

Pathfinder? Do you by any chance go to Forest School Camps? While on that note, I am going to think of loads when I go there next Wednesday, so be ready for the overload when I get back two weeks after. Two weeks...*shudder*

Nope.

1) I'm WAY too old for school (33)
2) I'm in Liverpool. ;)

Got another one...

You consider buying a 128GB USB stick just to keep ISO image files of all your discs in case something happens to them AND to keep all your save games on so a HDD crash won't lose everything.

...still considering buying that stick... >_>

EDIT: Aaaaand another one...

I want to make a proper, electric Bass guitar. *sigh* At least the coding looks somewhat easy...

When you update all your friends on what your sims are going through.... And expect condolences when one dies.

When you can't decide which of the 3 games you want to play...

Should probably put Anna's save on as she hasn't had an update for a while.

When the real life contractor is two days late starting your project and that night you dream that they're working on a sims house instead.

When you buy the uber toilet while at work, then spend the rest of the day thinking about going home and taking toilet screenshots to send to your family.  True story...

Trying to launch The Sims 3, wondering why it doesn't work... then realising you left the game minimized...
