That should be a real skill!

You know you've played too much Sims when.....

You want to take your Sims hairstyle to the hairdressers and get her to do it like that.   I have a few favorite I use on my Sims and I think its cause they are the hairstyles I wish I could duplicate on myself.  Usually my hair (despite styling) does whatever it feels like.  I also wish I could do the little twirl when I get out of the shower and be perfectly ready for the day.

when you wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep because all your mind wants to think about is whether or not you should turn aging back on in the Sims ;D

I was waiting in line for lunch today and I was wishing so much that I could put the time on 3 until I got my lunch.  :D

The people in your dreams are sims. Or you've killed the grim reaper. Either way, I've played too much sims.
J.k. you can't play too much sims! It's impossible.

..When you're laptop's fan has been busted, you're waiting on a new one and during this time you get Extreme Sim Withdrawals. Such as - Planning all storylines for all generations of my thirty gen legacy. All storylines. And traits, and names and careers of every sim. This is how bad my withdrawal is. xD

..you're not playing the Sims, and you accidentally press one button, which actually makes the game behave more like Sims! (I found a key combination in another game that removes all limitations on scrolling. ALL of them.)
..you're on holiday, can only take one game, decide to take the one that's in your PC, halfway there you realise it's not the Sims, and start pressing buttons like the Sims, even though you only played this game a few hours before. ::)

Haha I was on Facebook chatting with someone with the game loading in the background and then it must have loaded all the way and I hit P when I was typing and the game started running! Luckily I realized right away.

I'm currently going through this right now! I have to stop playing Sims 3 for a while, because my game kept crashing, and my pets are deformed (that's not the main reason, it's the part where my computer's been crashing, so I've had to give up on dynasties/stories/etc), so I'm using my "reduced Sims 3 time" to plan out a story about Hetty Lionheart. However, Sims 2 is currently keeping me at ease with my specs problems, but pets just aren't the same.  :-\ It's a good thing I love both games equally.

A bit off topic, but there is a rumour that the next EP will be called Showtime and a skill of singing will come! I hope these rumours are true. :D

I think sometimes it can be a good thing though, cos it's during this time that I get really good plot ideas. :D

I was playing cards with my sister the other day and I randomly started humming one of the pop songs. She asked me what song it was and I said " Oh if you have a stereo in your house then it will be playing on the pop station." She looked really confused for a second and then said " Oh sims, I should've known.
Another time I was shopping with a friend and she was debating whether or not to buy a shirt since she liked the style but not the color. I almost told her not to worry since we could fix that in Create-A-Style, but I stopped myself just in time.

I was loading the Sims yesterday, and went upstairs to go and see what was on TV during the loading screens. I had my volume set to a kinda loud volume. I saw the TV and it was ads. I thought "Jeez, I didn't turn the volume up THAT loud", and then, it hit me. The TV ad had music from the Sims on it. :o I was pleasantly surprised - I'd probably buy the thing just for that. (Incidentally, I pressed my ear against the TV speaker to be sure I wasn't mad!)

So today in my RS class we were discussing "Do people ever change?" and my first thought was, "Sure, if you edit their traits, but it uses up their LTHP!"

1. You start humming 3 different sim songs, each overlapping each other, and your dad tells you to stop humming.
2. Most dreams include: an action bar, control panel, and your sims.
3. The 1 or 2 kids who sim go to you to get advise/help ;).

When you wake up at 4 in the morning because of the rain and you have to be at work at 7 but instead of going back to sleep you decide to play a couple of hours of Sims before getting ready. Only to become so immersed that before you realize it its 6:50. I am so grateful that I work right down the street from my house.

I was watching an old tv series this evening, and you know what I thought as the credits rolled? The black on the middle section (it was filmed before widescreen) is the black on the colour palette. The black on the sides, that's the black when you drag the slider all the way across. And I know you don't even need to ask 'which palette?' ;)

... When you're fingers are so used to the shorcuts in the Sims, you use the same in different programs.
Like pressing C to take a picture has a slightly different effect in Microsoft Word... so I've heard somewhere.

When you're trying to work out what order to do things in and you think "I'll just press pause until I can queue everything up right".

When there's no food in your fridge and you can't understand why you can't just buy ingredients from it like in the sims, instead of having to walk to the shops in the rain.

You see ads on other site for The Sims 3 with sims in it, and you can name which sim it is... I saw one with a blonde, medium-length haired man who was dressed fairly well and said "HEY Kermit finally learned to dress himself!" LOLOLOLOLOL

Hey guys I'm taking an extended hiatus... again. I'm out of ideas to build houses and I don't have as much fun designing homes like I used to; it feels more like a chore. So that's where I'll be, I will probably be back sometime. :P
