A famous mis-translation of English into Chinese is a Coke-a-Cola slogun. In English: Coke-a-Cola makes you feel alive! In Chinnese: Coke-a-Cola brings you ansesters back from the dead! And yes, there were lawsuits about that! :D

Wow. Isn't language crazy? And the things people believe!

You know you play too much Sims when you have a limited amount of time to sleep (so you can play Sims in the morning, of course) and you actually consider napping in the rocking chair because it raises Energy faster.

I am glad we got a rocking chair recently, because otherwise I would be just too jealous of my Sims!

When the cop who pulls you over because your headlights are off spots a sims 3 game in a bag in your car and then proceeds to have a five minute long conversation about sims.

Time has become notorious for sneaking up on people while simming... A sure sign that you have been caught, chewed to mince and swallowed with no remaining capacity to resist the tailspin you've been caught in. Yerrrrrr - waaait for it - GOOONE! Hahahaha...

When you see a woman walking towards you in the shopping centre and think She looks just like Agnes Crumplebottom. That actually happened to me today ... she had the hair in the style of Agnes, the black dress of Agnes and she looked pretty much like Agnes. I had to stop myself from asking her if her name was Agnes Crumplebottom in part because I was concerned she would say yes, and partly because I thought she'd think I was weird.

When you wake up at 2 a.m. and write on your "to do list" to "Send Matthew to game on Saturday".  Well... I had to remember to make my Sim child go to the free game on Saturday because he'll age up on Sunday.

When you're on the bus, you see someone's hairstyle and face, and you think; I could make a great evil-looking sim.

Ha, that really made me laugh.  :D

You know you’ve been playing too much Sims when you feel the need to buy Windows 7. Don’t get the connection? I have too many expansions for my XP system to handle but the hardware’s perfectly capable. I need a newer OS to play it safely anymore…

I have a total of 8GB in RAM but only half of it’s in the computer. XP can only use ~3.1GB.   :(

…When you start falling asleep at the computer. *yawn* I should be in bed by now.

- You look at a mountain range, and there must be a road or something about halfway up, because it looks like a seam - like poor blending with distant terrain (and the latter is the first thing that comes to mind).

- When you go into the kitchen to make a cuppa, picture yourself having a route-fail because of all the dishes in the sink, but then laugh, because real-life routing allows you to go around the dishes.

- When you look at some really nice paper in the craft shop and immediately notice it has exactly FOUR colours! CAP time!

…When you need to clean out your hard drive but don't delete 2-year-old save files that haven't been touched in said amount of time. It's the same with Game Maker files, video archives, YoYo Games downloads, ect.

I've searched so many websites to try to find the release date for Seasons and have narrowed it down to three possible dates: Tomorrow, the day after Tomorrow, or the day after the day after Tomorrow. :o

You enter a contestant in a Sim forum's version of a reality TV show, then get impatient waiting for said show to start and make the whole family of your contestant, and plan out elaborate screenshots...Yeah, can't wait til the Mole starts, I have way too much time on my hands.

I have a notepad at work on which I jot down primarily work-related notes - prices, dates, reminders to remind myself to set a reminder for something or someone, etc. These notes sometimes include lists of things to do.

Today I made a list that went something like this - "1. computer - upgraded graphics; 2. unbreakable [this one had a check by it]; 3. sprinklers - auto-water [also checked]; 4. tv - improve channels; 5. stereo - upgrade speakers [also checked]; 6. self-cleaning [also checked]; 7. fireproof [also checked]; 8. fireplace - auto-light; 9. door bell; 10. dart board - always win, or hot tub - bubbles or something like that, or stereo - wire house, or stove - improve meal quality(?)." No, this particular list was not work-related, and yes, it was from memory since certain sites such as this one are blocked. :P

Okay, now I know for sure I've played too much. While reading Carl's new Seasons Summer guides I tried to mouse over the sims' pictures at the eating contest to see who they were. Sheesh.

Hehe, considering the department I work in, I'm now having visions of a coworker seeing this list and saying "Wow, why didn't she tell us she could do that?!? How did she play dumb all these years, she's a mechanical genius!"
