- Current Mood:Ache-y
My screams and victory dance made the cat flee for his life when I opened my brand new Sims 3! Apparently your brother mentioned that I was apprehensive about some of the new changes (your created sims can move away forever and make other autonomous life choices while you play different households) but he didn't realize I'd come to terms with them and I'm pleased it will mean less micromanaging every single generation and give a more realistic "Story Mode" as it's called.
Since then I've been super excited and perhaps just a bit mopey that I didn't have it yet, but now I'm all set to kick Justin off of his fast computer to get my Simmin' on.
Thanks a bunch!
Completely unrelated, last night I was browsing the channels and found a 1974 Italian(?) film called "Blood for Dracula." I switched it on halfway-through and was greeted by what I later learned was the Count himself vomiting about a half pint of blood into a bathtub. This went on for several minutes and pretty much set the tone for the rest of the movie, which gets ALL UP ONS with nudity and gore and a sleazy rapist for a hero. Can imagine an emo Arnold Swarzenneger? Now I can! Also, I can picture him rolling around on the floor whining about the poor quality of blood he's been receiving from the tramps he's been wooing.
Now I'm all boggled and confused. (One! One confused Parser! Ah-ah-ah!)

Last night after work I had some misadventures with frying in my cast iron skillet (the bastard gets hot FAST) and then sat down to watch the MST3k episode "Angels Revenge." The confusingly edited femsploitation flick with no fewer than two Gilligan's island actors had some great riffing and featured my favorite of the Two Hosts, Mike Nelson (He Who Is Dreamy). Today I couldn't resist watching another one of the 2nd volume DVD collection and popped in "Pod People" while Justin slept on the couch. Joel gives us one of the funniest host segments I've ever seen, recreating a song from the film with the unintelligible lyrics as best as he can manage ("Peas on Pie!").
In conclusion, Strawberried Peanut Butter M&M's are fairly decent but the fruit flavor is a bit artificial. Strawberry must be hard to replicate.
Apparently, though, I repay his awesomeness by letting a combination of my stupidity and the drink-obsessed cat get a very tiny amount of Diet Pepsi on the keyboard of HIS fancy laptop. I turned it off immediately and seemed to clean it out well enough, but I feel awful. It is hopefully not screwed up but I have to wait until he gets back from tennis to tell him about it. I have to leave early to pick up the clients from their work programs, so I don't have much time to spend with him today as it is.

Out of nowhere, the Sims 3 released on Tuesday. I'm not sure I should pick it up until I can afford to upgrade my computer a bit, because my gosh was S2 a resource hog. It's massively tempting but I have plenty to occupy myself with until then.
