When you excuse yourself to "go mood up" or "green up", and your friends and family know what you mean by that.

When you introduce yourself to new people by telling them your aspiration. "Hi, my name's Michelle, and I'm Family/Knowlege."

When your friends complain that the Twilight vampires are wrong, because they are sparkly, you blurt out "I saw a mod for that."

^WUUUTTT :popeye: I'm not THAT addicted. lol..

anyway..

When sh** goes down on a game YOU KNOW is glitchy and the possibility of losing stuff is always there in the BG,
But you STILL feel like curling up in the shower like Ace Ventura when that possibility becomes very real. "Noooo!!"

When your able to finally organize your life, because you realize your able to organize notes from the past six years and every single challenge that was printed at one point... (Reason why my mother is not putting down sims anymore....)

Or when you have a new respect for beautiful houses/landscaped because you know it would take you a couple headaches to just get it right in game.

That's the fun! And challenge.

Also you know you're addicted when you're on vacation and you go to charming picturesque towns... Just to take pictures and recreate them in your game.

When you find names on customers' orders at work and go " ooohh that'd be an awesome name for the (blank) naming theme!"
To yourself. Of course.
Also, it's only when your co-workers start suggesting names from said orders for the game that they DON'T PLAY THEMSELVES that you get a notion of how much of your thinking is devoted to spotting names. X-D

I work at a call center and I keep a list of names that would be good for first names! :bounce: I often tweak them to my tastes. When my sticky pad gets full I take it home and add it to my master list.

- When all your friends know about your favorite sim families.

- When you mention that someone is begging to be fed to a cowplants on a completely unrelated forum and suddenly you're flooded with "Oh, you're a simmer too!" comments.

- When you kept your Windows Vista laptop with no battery or internet for 3+ years past aquiring a new laptop just so you could be certain you wouldn't loose any sims.

- When your main requirement for obtaining a back-up drive was "can I fit regular backups of my TS2 neighborhoods on it?"

- When you hop on boolprop while waiting for your game to load because you haven't been home all weekend in 3 weeks and you miss your sims.

^ ^ When you drive by houses and classify them according to whether or not the roof shape would actually be possible in the Sims.

When you've actually recreated 90% of the houses you see every day on the drive from your house to the highway.

When you can't find a pair of shoes you're sure you own, and then realize you're thinking of a pair from the CAS catalogue.

When you start a workout and genuinely consider which of "Push Self," "Don't Break a Sweat," and "Steady Pace" you should pick.
