When you wonder what cheat that the builder of that house(in real life) used because you thought you couldn't do that with cheats in the sims 3!

I am now seized with the desire to roast a banana--also to east vanilla ice cream--but I can't do either one  :-\ oh well.

Roasting them are simple. You know to remove them from the fire when they start excreting boiling sap out the bottom end. It is delicious.

Oh it's not that I don't know how, (although I didn't, thank you) I just don't have bananas or a barbecue.  ;D

Maybe I'll tell my brother about that. He used to love fried bananas. Roasted ones sound like a healthy alternative. I personally hate that fruit and forbid my sims from growing those disgusting yellow pods, but each to his own.

When you look at the houses when you drive by and analyze what combination of roof types are used.

When you're reading a book of Fractured Fairy Tales and find yourself pondering over what traits Little Red Riding Hood should have.

Ever seen Hoodwinked? That was one unexpected set of personalities!

You just know you're playing too much Sims when you start regarding a dry mouth, empty stomach and sore eyes after playing as normal...

I loved Hoodwinked. Haha I am such a big fan of fractured fairy tales and genre shifts.

When the worst possible thing that can happen to you is the game not saving after you do something important.

…When you play it for the first time in months and still don’t have any good ideas.

“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.

mmm roasted bananas - have to try that! I'll probably either wait til we are out camping next, or til my parents have a bon fire. I'll top it with icecream and fire-melted/roasted marshmallows. They're actually a herb, rather than a fruit - so that explains why they are so different. In the meantime I'll let my sims roast some on the firepit :D I wonder if I can deep fry them...

In primary school we had a class where our teacher was generally absent. So we held twisted-up play versions of popular fairytales for the class, lol! I remember one where Little Red Riding Hood rode off into the sunset with the woodsman on the back of his Harley... And the three little pigs seemed more evil than the wolf! Mind you, I've never thought of wolves as evil.

And um... The saving thing... Yeah... *Extremely sad face*

Little Red Riding Hood, is that how it's called in English? How funny, these translations must have gone through deaf people ears because it came here known as simple 'Roodkapje', or 'Red Cap', to translate it back. I like Little Red Riding Hood better.
But where did the 'riding' came from?

The skin is insanely hot when done, but you still can't eat it, so be careful when peeling... It is the ultimate camping treat though. You know you play too much Sims when you are having daily forum binges to fix your need because your game hasn't been working for two weeks...

She rides a bicycle. And Afrikaans also only says "Red Little Hood", or "Rooikappie".

I think it is just the name given to a cape with a hood because ladies wore that style attire when riding in a horse carriage about the time the story was published in the 1600's.  Bicycles were invented about 200 years later.

You definitely know you've been playing sims too much when you put all your family to bed and think as it's 11:20 pm I should go to bed too so you quit the game only to find it's just 10:00 pm.  So you just cruise the boards instead! ::)
