I went to bed later than usual last night after a long day (I'm a Creative Writing major, my days are often longer than one of an engineering major) and thought "I'll just use testingcheatsenabled in the morning."

Testingcheatsenabled does not work in real life, but luckily coffee does!

I recently sent my Sim to catch some deathfish in the graveyard but the background night sounds of crickets and frogs were really loud, so after trying to adjust the volume in game and getting nowhere, I realised that those loud night sounds were outside my IRL window which was open.    I closed the window and solved the problem.  ::)

You spend a whole day hunting down the perfect medieval custom content and mods, but then only spend half an hour playing with it :/ (Though I am especially happy with the notebook for writing skill instead of computer).

All of the grandkids reminisce fondly of Sim families played at your house and ask how they're doing.

On your daily constitutional you think you see a wedding arch in someone's back yard, and when you get closer you realise it is a mini tractor piece of machinery with its arm and digger arched over, and after firstly wondering about whose getting married, you then wonder if they are building a basement for their museum pieces.

I was at work the other day, it's quite an impersonal looking office with a clear desk policy. I started daydreaming about how I'd make over the place Sims style!

I've spent way too much time wondering how I could replicate my house in TS3. The problem is it has five different levesl, six if you count the lowest level of the deck. Two steps up, two more steps up, one step down, twelve steps up....it's way beyond me. Playing the sims makes me obsess about the oddest things.

When you think about what you should add to your queue, or accidently say "Sul sul!" To your sons in the morning. Good thing that my whole family loves sims as they replied "Dag dag!" back.  ;D
I'm going to waste my time on here soon enough.

On your daily constitutional you spend more time looking at the houses working out how you'd do them in Sms 3 than at the people coming in the opposite direction, and you almost run into them and their dogs/bikes/prams. :)

After closing down my compter, I wanted to turn off my speakers by clicking them with my mouse, thinking there'd be an 'turn speakers off'-option...  :o

When you are listening to the radio and you find out that the song you are listening to is by Ed Sheeran and you think "Oh, I know who that is I saw his Sim in the gallery the other day."

You get back from your daily constitutional and think, I've still got 2 hours until work, I can at least play for another hour.

You look up and realise the one hour has become 1 1/2 hours

When you hear of someone named "Arlo" and you chuckle and think how unfortunate that is.

I know I've played (and read) too much sims when I hear the name Olivia or Eveline and my first thought is how far away Jupiter is going to be :-) lol @LivvieLove yeah, your story is just THAT much a part of my life :-) oh, and also the dreaming that I'm one of my sims, or interacting with one of my sims in my "RL" dream...

Every search I do on Google I automatically go and type, "Sims 3" from looking for too much CC.

<3 This is why I love you, @Magpie2012.
You can't have Eveline without dopey Jupiter clinging to her heels.

As for me, you know you've played too much Sims when you go to the "Weird Pics, Funny Posts, or Something New" thread and nothing is new there... XD
