Friday is Sims2 Day

Since I discovered The Sims computer game, I have been hooked.  If I remember it right, it was in 2000 when I started playing the addicting game.  You create people (sims) and you play like they have a life of their own.  They have basic needs, families, friends, jobs, houses.  Then you buy the Expansion Packs to add on to your game, which I all have.  Back then, the game was only in 2D.  All I thought about was the game.  I would be crazy downloading stuff for my game from the internet.  My favorite site was The Sims Resource.  While I'm commuting to work, I would think about The Sims, and plan what I'll do with my sims when I get home.  It will take me hours to play.  When I moved to Japan, I brought all my sims games with me, and I would still play for hours and hours.  It's the only game I play on the computer.  I don't like any of the other simulation games, role playing or war games.  They're too realistic it scares me.  When The Sims 2 came out, I was very excited.  This time, the game is in 3D.  Man it looks a lot better and the detail in the graphics is just great.  I was all the more hooked.  I made sure I have the new expansion pack upon release.

Without further ado, I tell you now that after over a year of not "really" playing this favorite game of mine, I played it yesterday from approximately 10:30 AM to 12:30 am.  I kid you not, I was still able to prepare lunch and do some chores.  But I'd be honest with you because I just had some snacks for dinner, since my husband was at work.

And I had a lot of fun.  So there.
