Shuddup. I’m Not Too Old To Play.

3 Feb

So in a couple of months I’ll be 40.  Here’s where I have a problem.  I vividly remember planning and throwing my mom HER 40th birthday party.  Black balloons, black napkins, black forks….black black dismal black.  I also gave strict orders to the cake makers to be sure the woman on the cake was face-down, falling down the hill.  It wound up looking like a cake celebrating a death in the family.

Thankfully, I had my mid-life crisis in my 20’s.  So I’m not concerned with younger men and fast cars.  Only the Botox.  No, a whole new beast has reared its dazzling head in the past couple of months.  The art of play.  I say “art” because I don’t want to be criticized for being a paid subscribing player in Pixie Hollow.  (For the record, Serendipity Lightflower is one of the highest ranked players.)

But the MOST fun I’ve been having is with The Sims 3.  Oh, the drama I have created.  It’s like I’m God….creating people and crossing my fingers that they don’t screw it up.  Here are a few of the families I’m currently playing along with a brief bio under their pic.  Don’t judge me.

The Mason Family

Mom’s a traffic cop, Dad’s a paramedic and neither one of them have time for any of their 5 children.  Did I mention they sleep in separate twin beds?  No?  I smell divorce, tears and alimony all over this family.

Heidi Morrison

Hired by the Mason Family to be a live-in nanny to their 5 kids.  She’s a family-oriented mooch with HOMEWRECKER spelled all over her.

Deidre Smith

She’s like Octo-Mom…only with 5 kids.  She works in Journalism and sleeps on the beach to catch up on her sleep.  The kids are all blessed with mental deficiencies and neurosis.  The social worker is starting to take notice.

Martha Grimes

An inapropriate and flirty slob who dreams of being a master chef one day.  Her son is a neurotic coward and her toddler is an evil genius.  What man will love her?  Anybody?

Drake & Diane West 

Two workaholic parents trying to be World Reknown Trauma Surgeons.  They live in a small cottage on the beach where the kids spend the majority of their time with a male babysitter who burps, farts and grunts.

Spencer Davis

Poor Spencer.  He yearns to be an International Super Spy; however, his current identity crisis isn’t giving him much time to work on enhancing those desperately needed Logic skills.

Zoe Nelson

A Rockstar-Wannabe who can’t play the guitar and is dating a psychotic house painter.  Hope it all works out.

    I thought you ladies were supposed to be all loving and caring and stuff. You sound like a sociopathic cat lady.

    Don’t worry about being 40 though April. You will be just as beautiful after 40 as you were before it.

    OMG! I LOVE Sims 3! I like that I can create drama for “fake” people and then kill them off when I tire of them 😀
