Designer? Hmmm.. not too sure about that. But how spooky is this: “You see something in your head, and your brain has a way of figuring out how it should come into existence”. That is true for me, and not just in the sims world. (I’ll never forget my best friend pointing to boxes with tulle, pinecones, candles, potpourri and votive holders and telling me she knew I could make centerpieces for her reception out of that stuff. I did, and they were pretty enough that she ended up giving them out as door prizes cuz people actually wanted them! :D)

That said, I see lots of stuff in my head right now but my brain is refusing to cooperate. :( *chases her lost mojo down the block*

So- one of the boys has AgriScience this year. They’re apparently going to be working with honey bees and I’m supposed to sign a waiver that covers various things, including the statement “my child has no known allergies to bees”. I normally don’t have a problem signing stuff like this. Today I do. “No KNOWN allergies”: this is true, he doesn’t have any known allergies to bees. But what if he DOES and we don’t know it? What if he gets stung and has a bad reaction? Does the school not know that such reactions can be deadly? I’d feel a lot better if there was a line in this waiver saying “In case of an allergic reaction to a bee sting, there is an EpiPen available for use on site”. I’m not sure how they could actually work that out, but I’d feel a lot better knowing they have an immediate solution right there.. instead of having to rely on an ambulance if something happened. Very conflicted about signing this waiver. :( (Note: They DO have the proper equipment for the kids to wear and use while working with the bees.. I’m still iffy about it. I’ve seen allergic reactions to stings before and it’s scary.)

They also want $20.00 for FFA fees. Excuse me.. he didn’t choose to take this class, IT was assigned to HIM, so shouldn’t FFA membership be optional not required? Why yes, yes it should if you ask me.

Ooooooh. *sigh* Another thing! Since class schedules are set before registration, why can’t they give you a supply list when you register? (High school.) I totally forgot that we need to get a binder and divider tabs. If I’d have known when getting school supplies.. he’d have that stuff already. Grrr. I don’t feel like going out just to get those 2 things. Looks like I have to though, stupid school. I’ll just have to get me some chocolate - or ice cream!!

Alfred Jenkins, ofc.

LOL. Smartass. :P That’s his undercover name! *awards 2,000 internet dollars for the laugh*

Robin Williams it is! *passes out internet dollars like they’re free* (Oh, wait. They are!) I still need to get his eyes just right though. :(

Aaarrrrgggghhhhh! I can’t get the eyes! *goes back to CAS* 1,000,000 internet dollars if you can guess who he’s supposed to be. Note the “supposed”, close might be as good as I can get. :)

I had an idea, so I loaded up the demo. What I ended up doing is proving to myself that I’m not the greatest sim maker, lol. Not that this sim is a bad looking guy! He’s just not “there” yet and I’m thinking I’m never going to get him “there”. *sigh* So nameless, older (looking, because we can’t actually make elders with the demo) dude shall get himself a name and languish in the gallery. :)

Edit: He is now Mr. Alfred Jenkins. His aspiration is “big, happy family”, he’s a bit of a goofball who’s outgoing and just a tad nerdy.

Psychosim, you’re a genius! You figured out a way to get lazy cats to do what they’ve been meaning to do for years! :D Ok, maybe not years.. but for a long time. Once you posted your Wall Flowers add-ons, I knew it wouldn’t be long until I did this one.

This is a simple resize+edit of the Maxis Wall Flowers sconce. The huge size of it has always bothered me because it seems like it should be smaller. Or maybe that’s just my thinking? Either way, it’s now smaller and I think it looks a lot better in smaller spaces. So- the resize is that it’s smaller. The edit (besides the resize, which is an edit, lol) is that I removed the bowl ala Psychosim’s default. I never did like that thing! (Which is why my resize is shown with Psychosim’s default. Now I can truly have it my way!)

Find it in the catalog, right next to the game mesh, for 100 Simoleons. It’s a bit cheaper since it’s a bit smaller. ;)

P.S. Forgot to say: it’s slaved to the game mesh.. and…

Be sure to check out Psychosim’s default and add-ons!

So very sad. I truly grew up with Robin Williams- I still remember the very first Mork & Mindy episode! In fact, I have a tape of it. An actual audio tape since that was before VCR’s… or if there were VCR’s they weren’t in every house yet. (Remember those clunky old things??)

I feel a Robin Williams movie day coming on. *checks Netflix* Yep, there are a few and they’ll all be added to My List. R.I.P. Mr. Williams.

Hello world, meet wanna-be sim me! I really suck at this, lol. I couldn’t get her face quite right and those glasses are way too big.. funnily enough the side view is pretty much spot on. Skinny legs, a bit of a belly, not much of a butt and big feet. Yep, that’s me! That face though! Besides all that- I couldn’t figure out how to get that tattoo off. I have tattoos.. just not on my arm. :)

This is the special object I’ve been working on for MTS: The Plumbbob of Praise. It’s not meant to be a religious object, just a silly little thing to put in your game for your sims to play around with- even if you do have to tell them to! (Unless you want to use it as a religious object. In that case, go ahead! :D)

All you get here is screenshots- forgive me in advance for sending you elsewhere?

1,000,000!!! (They’re supposed to be dancing up there!!)
A million what? Ants? Nope, that was last year. Likes? Nope. Blades of grass? Could be.. I haven’t counted lately. Then what?!? Downloads. Yep, today my download count reached 1,000,000 at MTS. :D
I don’t say this to brag, really I don’t. When I started uploading there I didn’t expect to ever get that number. (Heck, I didn’t expect to still be creating!) It took almost 5 years to the day to get there. (August 8th, I think, will be my 5 year “creator anniversary”.) To everyone who’s ever downloaded anything of mine.. from anywhere- but especially MTS today: thank you. I’ve been watching that number climb and didn’t expect to feel so WOW about it. So thank you, thank you, thank you. <3
Now, back to the special object that I’ve been working on. The special object that I’ve broken so many times it’s not funny. Maybe that will stop me from doing the math and dividing 1,000,000 by 60, lol. Tiny numbers that add up to one big one!
