  1. I'm really getting annoyed by my computer turning off every single time the A/C turns on.

  2. Merry Christmas to everyone that celebrates it. Playing Sims 2 is a fun way to spend Christmas, especially after not being able to play since March.

      So happy to hear that you can play again!

  3. If things go as planned, I will finally be able to play Sims again on Christmas. I've missed playing Sims since I haven't been able to since March.

      Oh gosh I sure hope so! I can't imagine being away from the sims for that long.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving everyone in the US.

  5. Frustrated now. It turns out the job I thought I I had may be a pyramid scheme. I'm so frustrated that every time I think I have a job it turns out to be a scam.

  6. Finally was able to get a job, start training Thursday and Friday.

  7. Ack a golf ball from a golf learning center almost hit my car today. I've driven by that place thousands of times, and today is the first time I've ever seen one in the road.

      I'm guessing the learner failed? ;) Glad it did not hit your car, though. :D

  8. Hopefully being a "strong candidate" for a job translates into getting the job.

  9. Back in Arizona and back to looking for a job. At least its warmer here.

      I third their good wishes!

  10. Haven't been around much because I had to move to get a job in another state, and between moving and working 10 hours at night, I'm trying to get into a better sleep schedule.

      Good to see Orilon. Congrats on the job and I hope things smooth out for you soon.

      That is rough. COngrats on the new job Orilon and you will get the sleep thing down. A friend had the same issue she is a nurse they moved her to night shift. She is doing good now. She said the secret is dark drapes and playing soft music to drown out any daily noise.

  11. Irritated. I found out yesterday that someone plagiarized a bunch of my fanfics.

      It's just down right horrible you are having to go through this.

      Hope everything works out for you, it really sucks when people can't be bothered to think up their own ideas. :/

  12. Argh. Trying to find a free website to move my site to. Angel fire is annoying me with the pop ups and others look like a pain in the ass.

  13. Blah. I didn't get the job. Its frustrating that some one who has a job can get another one (my brother just switched jobs) but someone who doesn't have a job can't get a job at all.

      Now you know how I've been feeling for the last 4 years.

  14. I have a job interview Monday. I have been unemployed for little over four years so I'm really hoping I get this job.

      Good luck, I have been looking for a new gig for 5 years

  15. My TV turned on by itself this morning. I was sound asleep and it turned on and woke me up at 6am. The cat was on my bed so she didn't walk on the remote and I don't program it. I'm guessing it may be something my apartment neighbors did.

      Great, real life invisible gnomes turning on TVs at 6 in the morning waking me up.

    3. Katelinjens

      Katelinjens

      One time my stereo did something like that and I couldn't figure it out for a while. Then I found a button had accidentally been turned and once it was switched back it never did that again. Having it suddenly turn on can be scary.

    4. doren

      doren

      One of my cats used to turn on a Turkish channel almost every day while I was at work, but in Orilon's case my guess is on a gnome in the house.

  16. One irritating thing is that my apartment is connected to the apartments next to me through the air conditioning ducts. I can hear their conversations, and they can probably hear me. I just hope my neighbor didn't think I was yelling at her when I was yelling at my Sims today. (A couple has a baby, and I was yelling at the mother to get her ass to the carpool and the dad to get his ass out of bed and change the baby's diaper.)

      *is wondering who's playing your apartment lot*

    2. Signy

      Signy

      Totally valid thought, Arathea. Orilon, I have similar but the couple upstairs actually have 2 toddlers.

    3. Katelinjens

      Katelinjens

      HA! Don't blame you for yelling at those silly sims. Also agree with what Arathhea said!

  17. Phew, it was just a fan that needed replacing and not the hard drive.

  18. The problem with intermittent computer problems is that they are intermittent. I just hope that they computer shop can find out what is going on with my computer (my Sims computer is in the shop for intermittent loud noises and vibrations. I hope its a fan and not the hard drive.) I'm on my laptop which is good for job searching on the internet and other internet activities but it doesn't meet specs for Sims.

  19. Avoiding patch 1.66 like the plague. New patch is out, and I see no reason to update.

      My sentiments exactly

  20. Who would have thought that a deceased person's taxes need to be kept the same as a living persons? I am trying to reduce the amount of boxes around the house since I may be moving into a much smaller apartment, but apparently I need to keep 7 years of my mom's taxes (she died in 2012).

    1. Cohzaku

      Cohzaku

      So, taxes are not just a certainty of life.they're a certainty of the afterlife?

    2. Orilon

      Orilon

      Apparently. I have to keep hers and mine for 7 years. She never had any trouble with the IRS when she was alive, and I never have either. I just hope they don't try to come after either of us now.

  21. Trying to fax anything at my house takes twice as long because I always have to move a cat off the papers, or move a cat off the fax/printer. Cats sure do know how to get in the way.

      Lately I find one of mine lying in the sink all the time when I use the bathroom and want to wash my hands.

    3. MysteryIslandKid

      MysteryIslandKid

      LOL Doren I thought Chong was the only cat that did that, mostly in summer though, my bathroom is colder then blue blazes in winter.

      Chong likes my pillow the best or to lay on the dogs.

      Precious hardly ever leaves the hearth except to use the cat box, eat, and greet Quentin when he comes home from school. At night she sleeps with him.

  22. Argh. Just because I have short hair doesn't mean I'm a guy.

      My husband is a welder and wears his hair long, he is always being called lady, miss or madame, never in the summer only in winter when they can't see his bicepts so I sympathize with you.

    3. WolfMoon

      WolfMoon

      he wears his hair pulled back in a single braid too keep it out of the tourch, when it is down they look twice.

      I had my hair short at one time and got tired of comments, so my hair is medium length. People are just too dumb to know the difference.

  23. One odd thing about Arizona: we don't go on Daylight Savings time, but we switch timezones. Today we are Pacific, tomorrow we will be Mountain. Its confusing sometimes.

      Orilon

      Yup. The only part of Arizona that does go on Daylight Savings is one of the Indian Reservations. The rest of the state stays the same time all year round. I did't worry about it when I was a kid, but it does impact things I do now since some parts of the year we are considered Pacific and some parts Mountain.

      My biggest problem was when you left my aunt's vacation house, crossed the Colorado into Nevada and had to change times. I was always so confused.

    4. Katelinjens

      Katelinjens

      I really wish we didn't have to change the time because it doesn't make much difference.

  24. Hopefully my copy of ITF is actually out for delivery.
