We passed a billboard in Wichita, Kansas today that said, in giant bold letters, WOO-HOO!

I immediately started cracking up and my husband was clueless as to why. The billboard was advertising some amusement park or something (I think), but being a Simmer...well...that's not where my mind went. :P

I may have already mentioned this, but it's been happening a lot lately. When looking at photos on line, especially photos with houses, I left click and try to rotate the image to see it from a different angle. Would love a dollar for every time I've done that!

... you decide to stay up all night Simming!

(It's 3 minutes past midnight where I am but it's the school holidays so I have plenty time to sleep tommorrow)

Does anyone else wish you could speed up time like you can in the Sims?  :P

All the time. Especially in science and maths  :-\

I know that feeling. On fb, my brother once posted something about going to work, than he added a WOOHOO!! I told him if he only knew what that meant, he wouldn't be bragging about going to work to woohoo lol.

I’ve recently caught onto the moodlets thing, too. Some guys nearby were goofing around while I was trying to focus on something important, and I gave myself the “Surrounded by Idiots” moodlet. I don’t even think most of the moodlets I give myself are even in the game, lol. :D

Oh, and I started using The Sims 3 as a tool for taking pictures of objects to use in green-screening. Would you like to see a Motive Mobile out on a random (real) street? So be it.

... when you find a tiny shop called 'Legacy' and think of the legacy challenge and wonder if there's one called 'Dynasty'. Two days later, you pass a Chinese buffet called 'Dynasty' and you can't help laughing out loud with pure delight  ;D

That's happened to me a few times. I swear every time I hear it, I'm watching TLC.

I think I contribute to this thread far too much...

You know you've played too much Sims when you see the new IKEA gnome advert and immediately want to recreate it in The Sims 3.

You also know you've played too much Sims when you try to shampoo your arm because you're thinking about The Sims 3 in the shower.

When you get sad after your sim dies. I've never really played Sims with aging on until this year, and I haven't experienced the pain of losing a sim.
Either I've been playing Sims for too long, or I'm just over-emotional LOL.

I usually get pretty sad when I'm playing a legacy and my founder dies. Like, I remember creating you. You got that job and climbed to the top. You found that special someone and marry him. You had your first son and taught him how to walk and talk then watch him as he grow up to be a man.

I could go on about that but mhm.. So. Many. Memories.

Like yeah they're just a bunch of pixels but to me Sims are like pets in a way, you basically take care of them (well I'm a control freak, I control everything) and you've spent a lot of time with them.

That's how I feel during my first weeks of playing legacy. Though I've gotten over it now xD

Same here!

You know you've played too much Sims  when you're wandering around a BEAUTIFUL mansion in the countryside and at EXACTLY the same time, you and your Mum say "I bet you wish you could/I wish I could recreate this place in Sims"  ;D

Don't worry Kevin, we all miss dead sims. ;)
It can be very sad, and in some cases traumatizing.

You go to sleep right after working on a date for a story and in the half-asleep state think, 'Wow, I wish I could go there! This place is awesome!'
