Life as sims

Last night Dwain drove me to the airport in SLO. The plane was delayed by almost an hour, and I couldn't even go through screening, so we went to the airport restaurant and had dinner there. We had a discussion that bordered on acrimonious. I wasn't prepared to have a discussion at all, really, so perhaps that is what set this off. Dwain got into government intervention into people's lives. He's libertarian by nature, so we have always had a conflict there.

The weird thing is that I started to visualize sims-like cues. I would see minus signs above his head, indicating that the conversation was not going well. I would see the diamond thing change color.

How odd to see the world this way, to have these feelings defined like this. In a way, though, how weirdly freeing.

An instant analysis, but also a way to distance yourself from the pain of it: Dwain as a sim.

I'm teetering on the verge--yes, today I may have to get my Sims stuff back out of the closet...

I need a sim life. My real one is as dull as Betty and Bob's kitchen, where they kept the radio on the cardtable.

I highly recommend looking at Sims2 if you can. Having them grow old and have children and die is rather a kick. Both Mary and Elaine are impressed by how close I was able to make "their" sims to the real thing - at least in terms of looks. Mary got a kick out of now being able to play the piano and paint, too. But I am not sure this business of recreating real life in sims is a good idea..and yet...someone suggested I make a Dwain sim...
