Shoulda Known Better

The week before last I surrendered to boredom and ordered The Sims 3 from It took about 9 days to get here from Lexington, KY, which would be impressive if the Post Office was still using horse-drawn wagons to transport the mail. I got around to installing it on Thursday evening after church.

Oh boy.

I'm doomed. I'll never accomplish anything ever again. Sims 2 was bad enough for wasting time, with entire weekends being eaten up by marathon Sims-sessions. I'm not bragging about this, mind you, but admitting that I have a problem.

So, Thursday evening I stayed up until 11:00 getting acquainted with the game. At first glance that doesn't seem so very late, but when you consider that I needed to get up at 7:00 the next morning, and I have a difficult time functioning on less than 8 hours of sleep. . . . Last night, I was awake until midnight playing with my Sim. I could have kept on going, but my (limited and computer addled) sense finally kicked in and I went to bed.

But please don't judge me for my geeky gamer tendencies. I spend all day being put-together and professional and it feels good to let my brain check-out for the evening.

Oh, I won't hassle you for being a geeky gamer. I'm such a dorky nerd that I've never even SEEN Sims. I mean, I technically know what it is, but I've never seen it and never played it.

(But I'll just bet it would appeal to my not-so-secret control-freak self.)

You'll have to switch to roleplaying games, where everyone else needs to go to bed too.
