November 5, 2013

Good morning! Yesterday was a good day. I made scrambled eggs for breakfast, cleaned the house, got the mail, went through my iCloud e-mail, took the dogs out, made mozzarella sticks for lunch, went through my iCloud e-mail again, looked through my My Documents CD, then sat down & worked on my Blacklight Beauty Crochet Afghan until dinner time & then made Hobo Dinner. Yesterday's Sims game was Tahoe Pines & my Sim Michael Shallow has been working on his skills & enjoying his Sim life to the fullest. This morning I took the dogs out & all of my Sim selves
worked on their athletic skills. There's the Sim replica of this house, our retired Sim selves, & today's game is more of our Sim self replicas, but this time in the replica of the house I grew up in, 40 Summit Ave (2nd pic). Since there was no work out equipment in that house originally, I put the equipment in the attic & Sim hubby & I are up there getting our athletic on (3rd pic). It sure brings back a LOT of memories being in that house in the game. I built it to
look exactly as it did back in the 70s, which had appliances & furniture from the 50s. I'm sure as I play it I'll be updating some things like the stove & TV for starters. After all, if we DID still live in that house for real, we would have updated the appliances & electronics for sure by now.

"I can definitely see some use for this app – especially if you have office colleagues who you need to share some ‘weaponized’ music with – you know the ones." – iSource.com
Finally, music as a weapon!
Ever gotten a song stuck in your head? Wouldn't it be fun to stick it in someone else's head? Earworms lets you email samples of unfortunately unforgettable songs to friends and enemies, songs like "Poker Face" and "Achy Breaky Heart." It's the ultimate musical gotcha. Additional song samples are available for in-app purchase.
