Fashionably late?

Or maybe just late to the party. Ha. I don't know how I managed to miss this community, but it looks like it could be a fun time. :)

My name is Erin. I've been a simmer since before there were numbers after the title. I love them all, and have played them all, but right now I focus mainly on TS3. I'm happy to read about any of them though. :)

I found my way here after a quick google due to reading mention of SimNaNoWriMo on one of the sim blogs I read. I hunted this site up, read about the challenge, and posted an update on my blog today (well, technically yesterday now *night owl trait*) to kind of play along. I haven't decided whether I'm brave enough to officially sign up or if I'll just do it all low-key for myself but we'll see. Either way it should be fun. :)

Hmmm, what else does one put in an intro? This seems so short, and I'm much more rambley than that; I can't leave it as is or else you may get the wrong impression of me. ;) My day (and night) job is to raise the next generation of simmers (well, and ideally functioning members of society, but hey they're not mutually exclusive.) Hobbies besides simming include knitting, photography, reading, and pestering my husband to make the computer look like it did in 1997 again after every new Windows update. I would make a terrible vampire because I love the heck out of garlic. My favorite color is sunshiney yellow, my favorite candy is peanut butter M&Ms, my favorite season is fall, my favorite movie is the Holy Grail. My drink order from Sonic is vanilla Dr. Pepper, easy ice.

That's probably all the important stuff, yeah?

Welcome Snazzle!

Yep you nailed all the important things.
Lessee if I can keep up..
Hobbies besides simming are ATM playing Majesty(an older Atari game for PC) Roller Coaster Tycoon, YouTube, Law & Order Criminal Intent, Sherlock Holmes(Conan-Doyle's) and some t.v. shows that aren't on anymore.
I too would make a terrible vampire. Sucks don't it? (ba-dum) I gave up on a favorite color because I just like color, although I am partial to indigo or certain shades of blue. Peanut butter M&Ms are right up there with plain ones! :thup: However I would choose strawberry or chocolate Twizzlers as mine. I have a hard time picking a favorite movie anymore(I like a LOT of movies) but the first Sin City(Frank Miller) is near the top of that list. Giirrrll we could talk movies! You'll find several Monty Python fans on this site, so check the chat now and then to find them. If you're not talking about Python's Holy Grail then I'll weep for you but accept it. C'est la vie. :no:
Current fave at Sonic is the frozen tea in Pomegranate Hibiscus, which I'm told they've stopped doing. Will accept powerade slush or cranberry slush as an alternative.

Welcome, welcome!

This is so exciting! You got all the important stuff indeed! :thup:

I think it's fantastic that you're interested in SimNaNo! It's a great challenge and I really hope you'll sign up and join us! Even if you only post once that's progress well done! If you have any questions feel free to ask! As for the forum, we're a small but mighty group, I would argue. :heart: Anyways, I seldom do this, though I should, but let me introduce myself in return. I'm Livvielove, you can call me any shortened version of it that you'd like (my real name is Olivia, you can call me that too), I'm not picky.

I love the Sims, and the Sims 3 is my baby, though I have played all of them (just not in the right order :whome: )! Writing Simlit is one of my favorite things to do, and when I'm not I'm usually playing other games, or hanging out in the Boolprop chat at the bottom of the homepage. You should stop by sometime to say hello!

Also, if you haven't already, I'd love to read your story (assuming you post it from your intro description) is there a link for it I might be able to find? Welcome again, and I hope you love it here as much as I do!

Of course Monty Python's. Is there any other? ;)

Sure. You can find it here: https://myairquotelegacy.wordpress.com/ It's not a plot-filled one, just following along as my sims do their thang. It's a legacy with no rules or points, because I'm not organized enough. But I'm aiming to get to 10 generations. We'll see. I'm almost halfway there now.

Hello Erin, and welcome to Boolprop! :wave: :oreo: :oreo: :smoothie:

Yeah, we have all kinds of fun challenges and events here, and friendly simmers to talk to. ^^

I like Monty Python too, and I've been spamming the chatbox with MP video clips recently! :fisty: I prefer the normal Dr Pepper, though. Bought a 1½ liter bottle today. :toast:

Want your first medal? :D viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2089
