Metaboring

Blue eyes
Originally uploaded by ABMann
I spent from... oh 6 to 10 last night playing Sims 2. it was glorious. And I hate to admit that I spent at least an hour of that making myself and Poe into Sims. The former was far harder as the face molding tool doesn't allow for enough granular control to, say, pull out the bridge of one's nose after applying some template features. The latter is INSANELY detailed. I was able to get nearly every stripe on Poe right minus seal points for her tail.

So.. if writing about the monotony of a day is dull, is writing about the monotony of the Sim Day extra boring? Metaboring? Or does it come around the bend into interesting because it's me but not me?

C'mon. You want to know that my Sim has the life goal of owning five businesses. That I could have gotten 2500 aspiration points for selling the cat. That he really wants money more than love.

Yeah. You want to play too; I can tell. How many points on the serious-playful spectrum do yo fall? You can tell me, baby.

I still think it's incredibly hilarious that my Sims life goal is to become a Hall of Famer.

Should our Sims take after us or shall we take after I Sims?
I see Sims 2 as a way to perfect ourselves. It's like Hitler's little meta-dream.

Icing your back?

The sad part is you're starting to resemble someone else on my flist who even makes characters based off of people on her flist.

If you're into it, you're into it, but don't expect me to be interested?

I do like the idea of seeing kitty in Sims. Poe kitty in anything is cute, even Doom.

Everyone who has played The Sims ever has created themselves in the game. Don't think it's a small subset, Mr. Judgeypants.

Oddly, this may explain why I don't play The Sims. Unless I was to pretend I was a fortune teller that had the ability to see into the future.
