When I think of my emotional state when doing things. Before writing new story chapters I think of whether I'm inspired yet, then resolve to doing something inspiring first before writing.

What is happening to mee  :(

I dreamed I was at a building, and I really didn't like the colour scheme that they had chosen, so I was looking at colour and pattern swatches to change the wall colour.

You Know You've Played the Sims Too Much When...
« Reply #1504 on: January 30, 2015, 08:21:32 AM »
We had this topic for Sims 3, and I have something for Sims 4 (or any of them, really).

...you have a dream like the following:

I'm standing in the doorway of the bathroom, and my brother goes down the hall and hands me a dirty plate. I think "I'll just do like the sims and wash this in the sink rather than going downstairs to the kitchen." I put the plate in the sink, turn on the water, and swish the water around. To my great surprise and disappointment, the plate does not disappear.

I woke up with a giggle.

Not so much played.. but read too many stories. When I was out the other day with my little girl I looked up and saw a man I recognised and went "Wow Emily.. That's Kaiden Fox!" ( @Playalot ) and then blushed profusely at my stupidity as he is not a 'film star' he is a 'character star' from the Fox Legacy!! Hahaha He even had the red glasses!

Hahaha! That's just too funny!!!  ;D

I know I've played too much sims when I'm dreaming about what is going to happen next... and then wonder why my game file hasn't saved to the 'right' place. *duh* that was only a dream!

I so get that!  I'm guilty of trying to pause other games the 'P' but it doesn't work.  It's very very frustrating!

I share your frustration! That does my head in when I do that.

My PC is away being fixed just now, I am missing my sims so much that I actually dreamed about them the other night! Fingers crossed that my friendly local IT guru has managed to extract the game file along with my documents and photos.  :-\

Has it been mentioned yet, playing so much, so late, that you lose track of what day of the month it is?  Because that has started happening to me.

Oh yeah. I lose track of days too. Two nights ago I pulled an all nighter and played sims until seven in the morning  :D

When you're too sick to actually play the sims but you lie in bed wondering if they are doing ok without you.  :o (I'm blaming this one on my high temperature.)

@KRae I actually had a panic thinking that teen Winston wouldn't be doing his homework and would lose his 'A' at school!!!  :o   *Heads back to bed...I must be sicker than I thought* (I can't believe I even admitted that!!)

Your two year old nephew pulls pillows onto the ground and pretends to fall asleep on them, you think 'floorboo' and look around for the baby dragon babysitter. Or maybe that's reading too many great stories by @KRae .

When you tell your visiting neighbor that "sorry I was a bit slow to answer the door but I was just trying to kill off my second spouse" and wonder why on earth they look like they're going to throw up.  ???

When you're playing another game and keep pressing speed 3 and wondering why the game isn't speeding up... And when you wish for a speed 3 or 4 in RL!

Or when you create your totally gorgeous, perfect sim and try to figure out where you can get the potion to make him real!

You have just got off a double shift (worked overtime so not really a "shift" per se but close), and have to be awake at 5 for the next one (its 23:40 here now) and yet still you're wondering whether there's enough time to fit in a game between sleep and wakefulness!
