...When you think that your Sims are deliberately planning a revolution when you're not playing the game. o.O

Do you know how many files I have in my SavedSims folder? Four hundred and twenty two. They very conceivably could throw a revolution!

You know you've played too much Sims when you go counting how many files you have in your SavedSims folder ;)

And you fall asleep in the middle of your counting.

Haha why is there something wrong with doing that?? How about counting the pics in the screenshot folder?  :D

Yep. But I have a habit of moving them to another folder named "Sim pics". But, there is also a little thing at the bottom that tells me how many files are in the folder.  ;D
EDIT: I just looked in that folder, and it told me I have 2,777 items in that folder. So maybe I do have a problem. Haha.

;) I started to move the pics to another folder but I just don't manage, I just upload to PB, but then I have several files uploaded twice :S It frustrates me when I have to scroll over like 32 pics to get to the new ones :S

You know you've played too much Sims when you keep seeing the blue message box in the top right corner during your fav tv shows 

Oh I love these! I thought I had one that no-one else did, then I got to the second last page :(

- I see things I want to buy for myself and my house and wish I could buy them and recolour them

- Just last night I looked at the time and then realised it didn't seem right - because it was sim-time
- I'm always looking at houses I want to build - while I was away on holidays for a week (sadly no sims) I thought about starting to photograph the nice houses in my neighbourhood so I could build them.
- I imagine little ++ or -- above people's heads as they interact - in RL or on TV
- My first car was just like the sloppy jalopy!! (Hyundai Excel 4 door hatch '87 model I think)
- I also press 3 while the game is still loading... and sometimes when my internet is being too slow
- My sig says it all... oh shniggles... there's actually a shop called Shniggles!
- I heard that song in the add the other day too!! I'm pretty sure I've heard some makin' magic music somewhere too. It might have been in Sims Medieval. I can't remember now.

- ooh a new one!  you try to rotate your farmville farm by clicking and dragging the scroll button

Today I walked into a lecture theatre, took a quick look at the stage, and thought, "Gee, the mesh for that wooden pattern is just awful. I bet it doesn't even recolour".

I now put each of my pictures into a seperate folder depending on what chapter they are for in my legacy. Like there is a folder called 'Chapter 17' and after I finish playing, I take my screenshots and drop them into there. I also have a weird obsession with having to name each and every one of my screenshots. ::)

I used to try to rotate the screen this way when playing Runescape.  Oddly enough, the screen rotating thing doesn't work in Diablo II, either.

I move all of mine to a different folder for what chapter they are too.
I don't name my screenshots, the only way I know what I'm writing for my dynasty is looking at the pictures.

:D I've seen really bad hairdos and thought, "OMG what kind of rotten mesh is that!"

I just spent an hour perfecting a sim's face, get her into a formal outfit and can't find shoes to wear!  Scrap it all, start over.   :o

You know you've played too much Sims when you go to the bathroom and your hips are blured out.  Then again, that can happen just from staring at any computer screen for too long.

Nooo! There were so many things on this thread that I didn't do... until I read it. I headed for a bath afterwards, and thought 'hmm, tranquil +10, duck time +15... oh crap, the light's just blown. Dark - 10

You know you've played too much sims when you wonder if any rooms in your house give you the beautifully decorated moodlet.
