When you dream that you load yourself into the game. I loaded in Pleasant Rest Graveyard at night, then headed to a Freedom store to buy some starter furniture, then sat down at a computer to work out the code to get some dinner :D

mm, that actually sounds like a pregnancy dream. I used to have really weird dreams while pregnant.  ;D

While waiting for patch 1.36 to finish downloading, I actually tried dragging the progress bar like you can do with need bars when you have the testing cheats enabled.

I actually did it once, I had an exam and I just wanted it should be finished. I saw the clock and it showed 10:20, and it was much left to write. I paused and watched at the clock and though "setHour 13".. I snapped out of my daydream and cursed myself "What? Why did I think about this code?!" ;D

When you dream about a family you create, even the starter home you put them in.
Now I want to create that family. ;D

When you try to recreate yourself 10+ times.

Seriously, if I wanted to make a sim of myself, I'd need at least three of them. Five traits would not be enough.

Was driving home from the inlaws house and asked my fiance to slow down so I could get a photo of this really cool house we drive past on the way home. Well somehow we then spend the next hour driving through the rich part of our neighbourhood with me hanging out the car taking photos of their houses and front yards. Yes I got quite a few weird looks from the owners!!! but have got some great house ideas...

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.

LOL! That's such a great idea!  ;D I've been trying to build a "haunted mansion" there's in my city but I've never seen the back of it so it's hard. Now I know how!

I was cleaning the house today and I suddenly wished that real life was like in Sims, where cleaning means only cleaning the shower, the toilette, the sink and the kitchen counters and making the bed. It would be so much easier if dust just didn't exist!  ::)

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...
