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.
Heaven knows how many times I've done that on the forum... Even I don't know...

OK so weird thing happened to me the other night whilst I was in dreamland.  I dreamt I was a Sim and all my friends and family were Sims (with plumbobs above their heads). We were in Sunset Valley and were trying out a new bar, there was a place in the front to eat and drink and a place in the back for a band to play and to dance but there was a door behind the stage which no matter how hard I tried I could not open said door.  Also everyone looked normal (like in real life) they just had the plumbob above their heads.  It was very strange.  I think I must of been playing it a bit too much lol!!
♫♪If life seems jolly rotten, there's something you've forgotten and that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.  When you're feeling in the dumps, don't be silly chumps, just purse your lips and whistle that's the thing, and always look on the bright side of life......♪♫

I don't know whether this counts as being addicted to Sims or to this forum, but I work as a data capturer. Taking a break from work, I loaded the forum, went back into the programme I use for work and instead of typing my work description I typed "Carl's Sims". Somehow I don't think that would have gone down well with my boss.  ::)

I had a dream that I was at work and we had just hired someone new, and that someone happened to be Bella Bachelor... You can tell what's been on my mind lately. :P

But yeah, you know you've been playing Sims too much when Bella invades your dreams and starts working at your office. :P

Hubby and I like to discuss what main five sim traits real life people we know would have. We do it for TV characters too. Like we were watching Big Bang Theory and discussed how i would love to make a Sheldon: Snob, Genius, Neurotic, Neat and Inappropriate.

Also if we have a fight he'll say our relationship bar has gone into the negative, an anology I find very annoying :p

To funny Swan!

I know when I've played too much Sims when I imagine that have needs bars above my head and see them decreasing or increasing according to what is happening in my life.

The other day I was at the grocery store and I noticed this odd horrible smell. It was not long and I realized it was another person in the store. I literally could see the green fumes coming off the person and I had to fight not waving my arms and holding my nose.

I know when I'm playing Sims too much when I'm sitting in History and the words "Heir" and "Dynasty" come up and I just start thinking about my Dynasty.
 And I often start burbling to my friends about Sims and the Forum and they don't have a clue about anything I'm saying!) apart from one friend called Kate who used to play Sims 2 and a bit of Sims 3 and when I start talking about how hard my Dynasties are, she just says "Why don't you just use cheats?" and then I go a little bit crazy  :D

you know you play Sims too much when you visit your new nephew and realize everything you know about babies come from the Sims!!!

(edited to add - suggesting to new mom just "throw him in the air and twirl and the diaper should change" is not appropriate.   ;D)

I got a sims head band for my birthday, It has a plumbob on the top of it. One day I mistakenly wore It to school instead of my normal no sims one. Then I called my friends new baby brother a nooboo, she just looked at me like What?

When you hear thunder and think "I'd better bring the washing in from the line" and get outside to find bright sunshine.  The thunder was in the game!  In my defense, I play with the window blind closed so I don't get glare on the monitor and my door closed because I tend to talk to the Sims on the screen (they are always trying to get in the pool and often neglect eating and sleeping) and my family think that's nuts...

You know when you've played way too much when you have to spend hours updating your Dynasty.
And when you have to look at this thread just to make sure your not the only sim crazy person.

That made me laugh Magz. I like the rain and thunder sounds - they are very relaxing (but not when you have washing on the line :D)

I too often literally confuse the game with real life, as far as the sound goes :P

You know you talk too much about the Sims when you tell your mother, "I won exactly what I wanted in the raffle!" and she looks at you blankly and says, "...on the Sims?"

Even worse, she knew I was going to a big event yesterday and her mind still went straight to the Sims. My dad followed that by immediately asking how many views I have on my story. I guess I really do talk about my Sims all the time.

I became quite animated with my sims last night, so much so that I was told to 'keep it down' and 'if I want to cook, I will'.

Yes, a non-cooking sim tried to cook something and I was shouting at him.

That was nice for your dad to ask.  :)

My mum bought me Seasons last week, and we were talking about it the other day. She was actually enthusiastic, which made me more at ease. She usually replied with, "How cool!"  :P

I'm not sure I believe there is such a thing as too much Sims.   ;)

But when I was at the grocery store this morning I couldn't help but think of this thread.  I was waiting in line at the checkout, with nothing much to do but look at the magazines on display.  I found myself studying the cover of a fashion magazine, not because I was interested in the articles or clothes on display, but because I kept wondering what sliders I would have to use to make a Sim that looked like the model.

...you are a Business Consultant in Real Life you start making references to the sims when giving advice when off work, and I quote 'You should have a red sad smiley face beside 'Logic' if you believe this marketing campaign should work...go play some chess, look through a telescope for a few hours then return and tell me you still want to go forward with this!' You get stares but the sims fans in the room will give little half-smiles.

You mean I'm not the only one who does this? :O

Anyways...

- When you see a Clay Street and a Greenwood Street within half a mile of each other and take notice.

- When you have a dog named Buddy and all you can think of is that he shares a name with Buddy Bailey of Twinbrook (true story!).

- When you cry because your hair looks scarily close to Agnes-hair (true story too!).

- When you're driving on a foggy day with your family and you have to suppress the urge to say "man, it's worse than Twinbrook out here!"
