I have been bingeing Sims 3 for about 2 weeks straight. I swear yesterday at work, this guy was talking but there was no way he could possibly be understood. I turned around because in my head I was like "Who's speaking Simlish?!" Oh, wait, no. It's just a foreign guy speaking crazy fast.

When you watch Let's Plays of other games and think you're watching Sims 4, or that they have the same gameplay mechanics. Just finished watching Vixella's latest Harmony Hollow video - seeing the fish tank, baking stand, etc really threw me for a loop. Funny thing is that I have been watching minecraft Let's Plays years before Sims.

This has been said many times before, but, it bears repeating: when you're watching a LP or reading Simlit, and you try to zoom in or rotate the camera so you can get a better angle.

I thought The Sims franchise did start life as an architect's tool box.  When I lost access to the AutoCAD program, I frequently used build/buy mode to produce models for classroom designs in my work.

You are responsible for sending out professional emails to people involved in a professional group of CEOs. One of the members of said group is called Agnes Kenemes (Aggie for short) - I have typed in Agnes Crumplebottom and Aggie Crumplebottom so many times it isn't funny. Thankfully I am in the habit of checking my emails and letters that go out before hitting send and there is someone else who also checks them for me ... but still. I dread having to talk to her on the phone or in person, I can't edit the spoken word in person after it is out.

(And Agnes Kenemes kinds of reminds me of the famed Aggie C, in terms of hair style, hair colour and makeup).

* Some of the ringtones on your cell are clips of Sims songs.

* You name a pet after your favorite Sims character.

* You have a file on your hard drive full of house plans and pics of houses you want to build in the Sims.

* Someone is telling you a long, drawn out, boring story about people you don't know and you daydream about pushing the pause key or freezing them
   with a ray gun.

* A friend posts a pic of their new baby on Facebook and you comment, "Awww, what a cute little nooboo."

* You're playing Sims, one of them is cooking grilled cheese. Your Hubby asks, "What's for dinner?" You make grilled cheese sandwiches.

..when you leave your computer and game on during the night, so you can quickly get back next morning.
..when upon waking up in the morning, you go to check up on your Sims before saying 'good morning' to your spouse/partner.
..when you tell your partner (who is heavily loaded with groceries) to wait behind a locked front door after they've been gone for work for 12 hours - because you must place that item in build mode before leaving your keyboard.
..when go to bed and your partner is already asleep, because you had to play for "just a little longer".

When you become too emotionally invested in your sims...my favorite accidentally died and I actually cried. Also when you start to assign people you know in real life traits from the Sims.

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

This has SO happened to me!!!!! I’ve also thought of web browse intelligence database while working.

... you see a picture online that isn't Sims-related, and think, "How did they use that terrain paint on the wall, and not the ground?  The pattern on the curtain I saw today looked very similar to the terrain paint with the daisies from base game.

You think *oh yeah, there's that family in town that have the nice big backyard garden with Life Fruit I'll just send spouse there and pick up a few to plant back at home so that household member with cooking can cook ambrosia once its grown at home ... now that house is near the water. Family name is Coastal.*

*5 minutes later* Can't find it ... must be looking in the wrong place.

*A further 5 minutes* Maybe the family's moved out or something ...

*A further 5 minutes* Realization dawns (after checking Sims Wiki) ... oh that family and their house is in Barnacle Bay ... I'm playing in Aurora Skies ... need to find special seeds instead

Whoops.

Family being hunted for were the Coastals
