What Sims 2 Aspiration Are You?
Family Your family is the most important thing in your life. You live to see your loved ones happy and comfortable, and you do whatever it takes to make that happen -- sometimes at the expense of your own comfort. In the end, though, you wouldn't have it any other way. You likely want a big, loving family of your own someday, or at the very least it's important to you that you stay in touch with the family you have now.

In the game, Family Sims typically want to have children, see that their children grow up well and go to college. They also often want to appreciate or talk to their families. They tend to be the most altruistic sims in the game, as many of their wants revolve around the success of others.

I'm not meant to sleep at night. It's UNNATURAL.

Doctor decided to give me a small dose of a second medicine. I'm mostly nervous about getting fat but it's such a small dose and the other medicine should counteract that part.

I suspect I'll feel much, much better when I'm allowed to daysleep again. I like to get up and swim during the day but it ruins everything. bleh.

Chapstick, hand sanitizer, phone, hairbrush/mirror combo thing, lipstick, a sweater. All in my purse, which also has pink dice, a ring with points on it (it's my fighting ring!), a pen with 4 colors, and tissues. Some days other things might join, but usually this is about it.

(A sweater? In Florida? Yes.)

One thing I don't take is Republicans.

I seem to have fallen into a needy, clingy, chatty phase.

As far as physical objects go, I would like to have:

-A pink Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. Someday.
-Monster High dolls, in order of most wanted: Cupid (well, duh), Skull Shores Lagoona (and no other), Operetta (when she's available), Skull Shores Frankie, if she really truly does exist, because she's black and white like the SDCC exclusive one I've lusted after, a Cleo, it doesn't matter which, I just want her for completion's sake but it's so hard to find one with well-painted eyes. Plus I love the Cleo/Ghoulia friendship and I want them to be together. And Cleo will add another doll-of-color which I feel I need because Clawdeen is like the only non-white doll I own, Barbies included, and that's just wrong.

I also really, really want a Create-a-Monster set. I forget if I've mentioned, but Boyfriend promised to make me a torso for the set of limbs/head that doesn't have one. Plus I'll have to buy her a wig, but Liv wigs are expensive and really not worth it. So maybe I'll tie a ribbon around her head and make her a badass bald chick.

But Cupid's been released, guys! Cupid! In Walmart! And she is way, way prettier than she was in the prototype picture. She's so much sweeter!

also I need moar sims.

this has been a greedy, selfish post.

1. I'm growing a second set of eyelashes. heh that makes it sound like I chose to lol ANYWAY my bottom lashes have started to grow a second row underneath the normal row, and they're getting pretty long, too. I asked my mother and she confirmed that I'm not going crazy. The downside is my eyebrows are now very robust.

2. I think the vitamins are making it so that I'm less cold than I used to be. I still have the electric blanket on all the time and my snuggie is my BFF but I feel less cold overall, so, win!

I'm not going to become a crazy vitamin lady though. A multivitamin plus some extra hair supplement is enough for me.

sims survey

Nov. 1st, 2011 11:09 pm
ivyette: (Sim-Me)
I love surveys. This one is about sims.

Q: How long does your game take to load?
A: 10 minutes now? It used to be less but I have more sims now and more downloads. But a super graphics card + 3 whole gigs of ram (shut up it's a lot for me WHEN I STARTED PLAYING I HAD LIKE .5 GIGS) speeds things up. Back when I played with a super full downloads folder it was like a half hour lol I used to like take a nap waiting.

Q: When making a Sim, what do you prefer: adult male, adult female, teen male, teen female?
A: Usually I make young adults so I can play them through Uni first. And I like females better because they're prettier and more fun to dress up and have so many more hairstyles.

Q: How long does your Body Shop take to open?
A: With all my BS custom content, about... 5-10 minutes? But usually I load it with less if I'm making a specific sim. Like I don't need female or child clothes if I'm making male sims, obvs.

Q: Do you make more Sims in CAS or in Body Shop?
A: BS, because I'm trying to make them more interesting. James, Lily, Sirius, and Remus were CAS sims though.

Q: What's your favorite hair color to put on your Sims?
A: When creating, red, for some reason. Maybe because there are more shades? For sims born in game I keep whatever they get.

Q: How many babies have your Sims ever had from one set of parents?
A: I have one set of lesbians who had 10. 5 from each. All gorgeous.

Q: How often do you experience a glitch?
A: Not too much since I started taking the care of my game really seriously.

Q: Do you make your Sims straight/gay/bi/lesbian very often?
A: Usually whatever way they seem to lean... a lot of times you can tell right away. When I have generations who aren't related I usually do whatever's convenient/cute. I love playing loads of different kinds of sims.

Q: Does your neighborhood have a theme?
A: Harry Potter, duh! And they're all very rich people with very nice gardens and loads of bright colors.

Q: How many downloads do you have in your game?
A: About 3 gigs?

Q: Who is your favorite Body Shop CC creator (meaning skins, eyes, hair, makeup, etc.)?
A: Pooklet's textures, Aelia's clothes... anyone who makes really nice meshes, really. And anyone who does at least semi-Maxis-match textures because photoskinning irritates me.

Q: Who is your favorite CC creator for build and buy?
A: Adele, hands down. I have lots of Parsimonious and Buggybooz stuff but I try really hard not to download too many buy-mode objects.

Q: How often do you play?
A: About 4 or 5 times a week.

Q: Do you watch Sims machinima?
A: you mean sims movies on youtube or whatever? I don't.

Q: Do you read stories/comics made with the Sims?
A: I have in the past. I'm open to doing it again.

Q: What expansion packs do you have?
A: Double deluxe has a lot of functionality from other EPs so it's hard to really say. But I'm supposed to have Uni, Nightlife, and Pets, plus M+G which is where I think I get the shiftable pictures from.

Q: What are you views on building and decorating?
A: I suck at building, but I like open floor plans. Decorating... I'm pretty sparing with non-functional clutter unless I REALLY love it or it fits with the sims on whatever particular lot I'm on.

Q: What is some body shop CC that you tend to over use?
A: I have like 5 eyeliners, all my male sims share like 4 hairs, and there's a Bruno eyeshadow I use a lot because it looks good on everyone. I use it a lot for kids and then branch out when they age up. Plus all my sims get a special lip corner-enhancing makeup.

Q: How often do you need to use "Familyfunds"?
A: I don't. That's why I start new families in Uni, so they can collect stuff with their scholarship money.

Q: Do you like doll Sims?
A: Yeah, but I don't really play them. I only have one I plan on marrying into the family at some point.

Q: Have you ever killed your Sim(s) for the fun of it?
A: Only one and I felt so bad I resurrected her. (Frances the zombie!)

Q: How old are you? When did you start playing?
A: 24 (soon). In 2009. I used to play simtown a lot, does that count?

Q: Do you ever base a Sims family after your own home life?
A: Yep. I've played a few different Ivy and Boyfriend sims.

Here you are, if you wanna see my new bangs:

My hair's still wet and bumping in the back for no good reason, but there you are.

I'm still probably going to pin them back/use a headband constantly. I'd really rather pretend this horrible thing never happened :x

I thought I might go find my copy of the Hobbit, since Mark is doing it over at Mark Reads, I haven't read it since 7th grade a zillion years ago, and a good book might help me get rid of this depressed, lonely feeling I've had for a few weeks. I want to go outside and read it in the sun while we still have warm sun. After searching around to see where my parents had moved it I finally found it.

Inside the cover (it was a used book) is a dedication to someone named Bert for Christmas 1975.

On the next page I wrote my own name... and the url to my livejournal. This was back when urls to non-paid LJs went like this:

oh, 14-year-old Ivy. You were a loon.

TAGGED BY [ profile] odontv

* People who have been tagged must write the answers on their blog and replace any question they dislike with a new, original question.
* Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

1. Make a list of 5 things that you can see without getting up.

Hello Kitty candy, chapstick, tissue box, pink pen, nail polish.

2. How many times have you changed your hairstyle in the past five years?

what is this change of which you speak (I wear more clips in it now than I used to. Does that count.)

3. What is your favourite article of clothing (that you own) and why?

I may be wearing it. I am very, very fond of this red shirt and I have no idea why. Other than that, probably, idk, my prom dress? I love clothes and I have loads.

4. What's your favorite cartoon?

I don't have a current favorite cartoon, but from my childhood... uh... all of them. There's no way to choose. It's more of a time period/programming block than a single cartoon, for me.

5. If you got a tattoo, what would it be of?

I kind of hate tattoos (and kind of love them) so I'd never do it, but probably a heart or "love" or something equally cheesy and tacky and rainbow-y pink. idk where, probably my wrist so I could see it a lot but could hide it with a bracelet when I was tired of it.

moar! )

I tag..... [ profile] shadyperfection, [ profile] makenoapology, [ profile] frickkonastick, [ profile] lurie6, [ profile] left_to_love, and 3 random _aiers who feel like doing it. I know I know it's a cop-out but idk anyone who actually wants to do it.

You are .rpm  You have a nice package.  You can be useful, but your many variations sometimes make you tough to find.  You aren't apt to get jealous.
Which File Extension are You?

I'm only answering this one because the title said "prone to puns" which I am. Mostly of the portmanteau variety. I call them punmanteaus, because obvious.

Tagged here:

A. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
B. Tag seven people to do the same.
C. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it."

1. I can move one eye independently of the other. One of my eyes sees things in a more reddish hue, and the other sees them in a more bluish hue. Obvs, when I'm looking through both they're normal. My right eye is "dominant", which is where some of my depth perception problems come from (although the doctor says it's more a problem in my brain than with my eyes, which... yeah, thanks). Like the lovely vcake I'm legally blind sans glasses (20/375 in the left, 20/400 in the right). "Okay, read from the big E." "There's a big E?"
2. I sleep during the day and stay awake during the night. My body's pretty hard-wired this way (and has been since early childhood, actually), when I'm off this schedule I get cranky and weird. I also can't sleep in the dark, so if it's rainy out I have terrible nightmares. I'm also afraid of the dark and sleep with a nightlight for those hours before the sun comes up (if I go to bed early).
3. My hair is my favorite thing ever. It's waist-length currently but I'll probably be having a trim soon, it needs it. Probably about 3 inches.
4. I'm writing a novel and I'm almost done, but the climax is being a bitch. I'm utterly terrified of sending it away to publishers/agents, to the point where I've almost given up.
5. My brain thinks only in a straight line. When I cut something, for example, I get the scissors, cut the paper, and then go do whatever it is I wanted to with the paper. I don't go backwards- which means that putting the scissors away goes to the back of the mental list of things to do. I also can't see the forest for the trees- I can't even see the trees. I see bark on one tree that needs to be alphabetized.
6. My favorite words to say/think are "Kylie", "Beatles," "pleasant," "bubble", "chuckle", "jingle", "cupcake", "cake", "birthday", "Christmas" and "love/lovely/loved/loving (you get the picture)". I don't overuse them, they just sound nice when they come out.
7. If I were an animal, I'd be a bird. I'm not overly concerned about being able to fly (people always name this as the superpower they want but I'd much rather have heat vision 'cause I'm always cold), but I think I'm pretty much a parakeet in a human body - I like to chatter, listen to fast music, dash from activity to activity without taking care to do it right, and nibbling tasty treats. And of course, shiny, colorful things are like crack to me. And I think I'm kind of flighty/flaky when it comes to being a good friend, which is what birds do- no matter how much you love them, they don't cuddle you for very long and prefer food over you. Of course I do like cuddling, tho. And it doesn't mean I don't love people very, very much. I'm just bad at showing it.

As for tagging, honestly, I have no idea which of you would even want to do it, so, in defiance of the rulez, I tag whichever people like talking about themselves.

I'm also thinking of going back through the OT posts and compiling the Scatt sims over here in my journal, as an archive. It's a lot of work, but you guys can talk me into it, right? :)
