Teapuff, you can use google maps. They have a street view of the houses. That way, you don't have to worry about driving unsafely or looking creepy :) I've used it before to help me design houses from my own neighbourhood, rather than relying on my memory.

Ahg! That is genius!  :D

If you're lacking a rear view of the house, you can also download Google Earth. The views are limited, but may help a little. We used Google Earth when we were choosing a house from the houses that were available to us when we moved. It helped to see in real terms the size of the backyard (real estate photos always make things seem much bigger than they are). With kids and a large dog, a decent sized yard is a must.

Oops, I didn't even realized you were talking about google maps  ::) I read Google Esrth instead. That's what I was talking about  ;). It's a great idea!

You know you've played too much sims when... You know heaps of the stereo songs that are in sim language! And the other day when I was feeling sick, I was like 'Oh no, I've got the nausea moodlet' haha. :D

You know you've played too much when your mom calls you a 'Sim Zombie', so you save and quit and scurry off to the forum. ;)
And, when all you can talk about is Sims ::)

You know you have played too much Sims, when you start a town and instantly know exactly who to avoid and why... And end up a recluse in SV from the get-go. Because nobody there is good enough for YOUR Sim (and then he or she marries one of them anyway!)

Your evil sim just "happens" to pop up a wish to see Arlo Bunch's gost. And you know it's for the greater good if he goes bye-bye. (My pretty sims shall not be ruined by that nose! >:()

I had a sim-nightmare last night... That's a sure sign of over-exposure!

There was a small weird house across a lot with  a huge mansion and yard, wit a party going on. There was this clueless idiot of a prince obsessing with his future recognition, while he missed the princess he's supposed to marry, hardly 10ft away! In the mean while i'm building an opera house inside the mansion and I simply can't get the ceiling raised... But I populated every seat in the place with cute pokemon-like tiger-teddies... And later the very upset princess makes the stupid female matchmaker (who had to link her and the idiotic prince up) lay paving stones in the attic in darkness with no mortar... It was scary... For real. It was intense in the end.

Tonight I dreamt that I was being created in CAS.  :) CAS was in a room with racks and racks of clothes, shelves of necklaces and bracelets. It was very fun but a mysterious voice was directing me like a puppet and making me wear things I really didn't like.  :D It was a lot of fun!!

You know you've played too much Sims when you read "Sim" instead of "sin" (spanish word for "without").  ;D

You know you've played too much Sims when you confuse their days and time with yours.  Today is Friday evening in real life (in Oz anyway) and I just quit the game to go to bed so I'd get an early night for work because I have a site meeting at 7:00 a.m. on Thursdays and it's Wednesday evening in Sunset Valley. 

Probably not all bad news because now I'm trawling through the forum instead.

I do that all the time! I read all sorts of sim terms where they shouldn't be. It's a bad habit...
