a little game. You know you have been playing too long when??

When I look up from my computer and for a split second I wonder why Bella isn't in my living room.

    When I wake up at 3:00am and cannot get back to sleep because my mind is too busy thinking about scenarios that could happen.
    (Happens to me all the time when I become addicted to a game, the other night I woke up deciding on road layouts for Cities Skylines...)

    You've definately played too much when you start getting all sorts of error codes stopping you from saving.
    Like that dreaded Error 12.
    Focus not this but the fact you're great!

    When you are so deep into your sim's stories and lore that you had to move to an actual family tree website to keep track of all of your little babies's, eh hem...sim's bloodlines and biographies.

    I only played with you, string between a kitten's mitts.

    When you've incorporated Sim references as passwords on various sites. Think Boolprop, Plumbbob, and the likes.

    When you see a tight spot and think a sim would get stuck because it's too narrow for them.

    when you try to "fast forward" through sleeping. to be fair though, i was really tired and probably not thinking clearly.

    When you think sleep, food, water are overrated because you can't stop playing.

    When your hand automatically travels up to the Sims on the desktop without you telling it to.

    It was an accident! I swear!

    Wait, what? Is this really a thing!?!?

    I need friends who understand, I want to be invited, I just don't want to go.

    When you're watching a Sims Let's Play on YouTube and hit the 'P' button on your keyboard in an effort to pause the video. Or in addition, you also try to see beyond the image showing by moving your mouse to edge scroll. o.O Yep, been playing too long...
