My thought processes sometimes scare me

This morning: "Ooooh! It's the 29th already and I threatened to do dare #26 at maxis_taste at least a week ago and there isn't much of January left so I'd better get onto it. I should fire up the game and start playing (...) but first, I must retexture this hair for the sim I am going to play! It's going to look absolutely perfect on her!"

*massive facepalm*

I do this ALL.THE.TIME!!!

It is now a little over an hour later. I have been messing around with updating the programmes necessary to do the retexture but I have not, in fact, played even for a second or attempted the retexture. I have also watched my husband play Skyrim, my son do a puzzle, and done a bajillion other things that do not involve actually retexturing this hair that is a pre-requisite to me firing up the game and loading this household. I am about to make lunch for my RL family, which is going to consist of pancakes (takes longer) rather than sandwiches (which can be quickly thrown together).

I do believe I have found the perfect household to use for this particular dare because I am finding all manner of excuses not to load it.

Haha! I'm glad to hear it worked out well for her. Helmet head is no good.

So you're playing Sims 3, right? I'm hoping my new system will allow me to play that more easily (and it should). I could play it on my old machine, but it was too slow to actually be much fun. Going into CAS to give makeovers took a lifetime.

I'm playing only Sims 3 at the moment because Sims 2 isn't configured for my monitor. It's all stretchy and horrible. I've been told how to fix it so I will hopefully be able to play that as well soon. I just need to get around to editing a game file to configure the game for my monitor size.

Sims 3 is fun if you have the right specs for it. For me, the game itself plays just fine but I do get some lag in CAS. A lot of people complain about lag in CAS, though.
