When someone asks you who your favourite couple are and you say Jamie Jolina and Thornton Wolff and they just sit there and look at you like this  :o;D

When in between calls at work (I work for the hotel chain La Quinta, in a call center) you plan out your dynasty super max skills. :D

I have a 4 hour commute every day.  I spend at least 3 hours of it thinking about my dynasty and what I need to do next.   ::)

As for cheating (other than building cheats and resetsim), I tried it once but felt like I was doing something wrong - probably because I play dynasties so much where it's not allowed.  One of these days I'm gonna make my own version of Max Skills and I'm gonna use every cheat in the book!

I too usually only use the building cheats and not play cheats for dynasties and legacies and such. So when I tried some of the old challenges, and started practicing the new challenges that allow cheats, it added a whole new element to gameplay. The starship crescent wrench challenge from last year had teleporting - that was a whole lot of fun.

I never cheat in real life; so, cheating in the sims is kinda of a thrill! I don't do the challenges because my life is a challenge. I want fantasy and not rules! I live by rules every day of my life.

I agree 100%! I like using cheats, because it makes the game less realistic. I don't know why, but hearing positive comments like "I like this feature, because it makes the game more realistic..." or suggestions for religious buildings, or other sensitive subjects in the game just sounds like nails on a chalkboard. I don't mind the bits and pieces of real life, but I think punishment and laundry is a bit overboard for my taste.  :P Why does Sims have to be a challenge, anyways?  :D

I told my coworkers at Sears, "Cheating gave me carpel tunnel" when one of my coworkers suggested a shortcut into moving the treadmills off the truck, onto the skid.  ;D

I couldn't have said it better myself!! In real life, I'm honest to a fault. I would never even think of cheating, but when it's sim time, I have no rules to follow but my own. Yes I am playing a Dynasty, and I follow the rules to a point, but not strictly.  ;D

"Cheating gave me carpel tunnel"
Yikes sounds awful!!  :(

Ohhhhh curious lol ps if you do make a house out of the Butterfly Pavilion I would love to see it ( Did Lunar Lakes get you thinking)

No, this is something I've tried to do for a long time.  My problem is that I can't stay motivated on it lol.  I find something else that occupies my interest and time, and it gets put on the back burner and subsequently gets lost/corrupted.  Once I get back into playing (I'm currently fighting a bad cold), I'll post a few images of what I've got done so far.  My current goal is to get 3 of those Sultan's Tabernacle tents for the "bedroom."  At 2,750 Ancient Coins a piece, this is a rather epic task.  ;)

Of course, my current roadblock in China is the funky adventure board...but at least my Sim working on that has the visa level.

I was reading a book earlier and it had the line "fight him when she wants to play Sims Two". At this point I almost screamed "Sims!".

I was watching 30 Rock earlier and one of the lines was something like "What do I have? A sims family that keeps getting murdered." I happened to be watching it with my mom and sister and they both looked at me like "Are you sure she said sims?" They are convinced I'm the only one who really plays it.  :P  ::)

You jump up and squeal in delight, scaring dog, cat and husband when you get a pair of boy/girl twins unexpectedly for the first time ever after playing for over a year.

Me...tonight.  ;D

..you want to get a laptop just to play it on-the-go.

“When life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back!” - Cave Johnson, Portal 2
“You ought to upgrade to Windows 7!”, they said. “It’ll help your games run so much better!”, they said. If I see them again, then they had better know how to stabilize an on-the-fritz copy of The Sims 3 that was working just fine on Windows XP.

That's exactly what I did. My laptop is used only for the sims.

Well, considering the size of this forum, you are definitely not the only one!! I used to think that too until I met everyone here!  ;D

I hear sims music in my dreams.

You might want to point out to them that the Sims is the best selling video game franchise in the history of video games, with the Sims 3 itself coming in at #7 on the list of the best selling video games of all times (Sims 1 and 2 are first and second place respectively).

Sims 3 out sold several big name titles, such as the original Half-Life, Diablo II, Guild Wars, and all 3 of the Doom games combined.  And when you look at the games that have done better (World of Warcraft, Half-Life 2, Starcraft, and Battlefield 2), 7th place is pretty darned good.

The funny thing is that my daughter's now ask me what's happening to my sims, since I would tell them the stories I was playing. May hook a few more (checking for the right bait).

Speaking of printing screenshots out, I once did that in response to an offer to make a sim version of a co-worker.  She thought the resemblance was very good, but the exercise otherwise very creepy.

I also once made an asylum challenge for Sims 2 with all my co-workers I didn't like.

I probably could have found a few more to include, but it was eight.   ;D  I don't even know if I had a "playable" sim; I think I just wanted to watch people who made my life difficult run around and wet themselves!
