..When you almost pee yourself from excitement after hearing "This City" by Patrick Stump for the first time in Showtime. No lie.

When you expect The Sims to pop up the second you power on your computer and switch on the monitor.

Sometimes I don't turn my computer off at night, just because I want to be able to play again tomorrow without having to load the game.   :)

I can't do that because that darn humming bothers me so much. I have this small irrational fear of my laptop burning out. Plus, sleeping with a bright screen light would just render me unable to sleep because "it's not right". Curse OCD (the reason I worry so much)!

You notice you have 300 hours played and have owned the game just under a month.

When you start contemplating which traits your friends have.

Then discuss it with your significant other to see if they agree,

Sims 1 was really the point in my life when I got the most play time in.  I would play often until 5 or 6 in the morning during breaks in college and in the summer.  I'd go to bed just as everyone else was getting up, sleep until 12 or 1pm, shower, eat and start playing again.  And it never got old.  I would be totally bored with it now, but that kind of schedule would be nice to have again!   :P

When you point out to your husband that getting out of bed to check the lights/cooker/front door/taps would qualify him for the Neurotic trait. (Hint: this does not go down well!)

When you walk around your neighourhood, and think, "Ooh, maybe a can build that house on sims?!" Then for the entire walk, you would imagine how you would decorate it  :)

I've done that before. I was taking a walk and I saw this really nice house I'd like to live in, so I wondered if I could rebuild it in the Sims. The crazy thing is I did! I'm not much of a builder, but I got almost every detail right! I don't live in that neighborhood anymore, but I took a picture to compare them side-by-side and they almost looked exactly alike. I didn't know whether to be proud or scared.

I also kind of do this, I see a nice piece of furniture; namely a green leather stool, (i know random but oh well) and I make it in the sims 3)

I would be proud if I did every single detail ;)
And if you knew who lived there, and how they looked like and possibly their personalities, you could make the household too.

No, it was an empty house. It was for sale.

That is very similar to telling your significant other that you want to recreate him in Sims, here are the traits and profession you are thinking of giving to him, and he responds with dead silence for a full five minutes. And then he reminds you he really hates Sims (and you offer to change Genius to Neurotic... ;D )

The very moment I realized that I've been playing "too much" Sims is when I made a house for me and my boyfriend to live in for real, and stuffed it with dogs, cats and horses.  It was a nice wood cabin with large fireplace. then I started to talk about pets in the game like they are real. Now, I am crazy with Sims and made another "wanna have" home for us. What can I say, I have biiig imagination, but I think he stopped listening to me when I said I have a unicorn. :)):)

I know i've played way too much Sims when my vision is worsening, I have an ice pack on my back to ease the back cramps, and I have to finish my 9 pages of homework.

You know you've played to much sims when while your sims are dancing you get up and start dancing sims style.  Hehe, I do that.  I also sometimes reach down to pet a dog, that isn't in real life, but on the sims!  Hehe.
