...you start to worry that spending too much time playing around on Carl's forum, instead of playing your sims, is hindering your sim's career progression.

I have had thoughts like this.

I've played too much sims when I start to watch builds on Youtube... then I use my keyboard to navigate the game, forgetting that the game on the screen is not mine to control.

I sooo dreamt in the sims last night. I was moving from house to house that I have really lived in in real life and was redecorating. But I was doing it with the controls of the game and everything was changing in front of me the way it would in the game!

You order a NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) t-shirt, and think that it will give you a +2 Inspired Moodlet for when you write.

...you want your friends in your game and start to wonder with what kind of storyline that you'd do together. Well, I rather meet in person. That'd be more exciting since I could get their Simself too and it's safer that way ::)

P.S: Just got a nearly death experience through sharing Simself in community and delete it quick after the deal is done ::)

You hear one of your older cousins talking about how she's hoping for twins, and thinking to yourself "twins are pretty rare unless you get a Fetility reward so good luck with that..." and then realizing that one cannot buy rewards in real life! (How awesome would it be if you could though?)

In the Sims 4, TVs don't stay on, on their own. There was this one time early when i got the game that I was so immersed with watching the in-game TV (i was zoomed in and everything, watching the Iron Chef-like cooking show), that I got mad at my sim for turning it off because he had to go to the bathroom, before I could finish watching the animation.

@ imayu94, I so get that. I've heard the romance channel has a Downton Abbey style animation on it, but my sims won't sit still long enough so I haven't seen it yet!  >:(

What shape is a "plumbob," exactly? I thought it was just a nonsense word they used.  ???

 A plumbob is a real thing.. It's a weight that is hung on a string and used in the same manner as a spirit level. Most building plumbobs though, have the pointed shape at the bottom but have a rounded top.

You decided to take a picture with you having a plumbbob attached. Well, Halloween is near. I think I will be a couch potato (with plumbbob attached) for the rest of the day, haha... (I hate scary stuffs) So, well yeah time to prepare things.

When you take a sip of your coffee and it taste so good that as you thoughtfully look down at your cup,  you find yourself thinking "noom".  :o

In Season 7 of NCIS Ducky mentions that he had a pet guinea pig called Hunca Munca. Is that a popular name? Because when I thought about it I realised it is the name of one of the cats that you can adopt in Sims 3 Pets. This particular cat is nearly always in the pet pool.

It's from Beatrix Potter: The Tale of the Two Bad Mice.  Although why a mouse's name should turn up for a cat is another mystery...

You have to have the birds and the bees talk with your tweenager, and aren't quite prepared for some of the bizzare questions that they come up with. You give yourself the embarrassed moodlet.

Aahahahaha... all really amusing ;D

My take: Seeing a car parked in a disorderly way near your home, and wanting to open up the laptop and do NRaas > Overwatch > Immediate.

And another: Pressing '4' while waiting for something that takes awhile to finish on the computer.

It's reassuring to know I'm not the only one!  :D

When you walk past a log covered in moss and "look for frogs" immediately pops into your head.

When even your cat is craving for your attention so takes to sitting on top of your mouse.... while your hand is still using it to play sims!
