Quick Update

I’ll be getting back to the story VERY soon, I promise!  Just another quick blog post for two reasons.

First, I want to say hello to everyone coming by from Boolprop FightTheAddiction False forum board.  Hope you enjoy what you see and come back for more!

Secondly, I want to point out the extra page I made that will feature a quick overview of the Harrison family.  It’s right up there next to “blog” and “about.”  Yeah, you see it now?  Cool.  I’ll be updating it this evening and tomorrow morning.

That’s all!  Next update will have pretty pictures and story… I promise!

Is There Anybody Out There?

I wanted to take a small break from the adventures of the Harrison family to utilize you, the reader, for a moment.

I’m looking for recommendations for a good, thriving Sims 2 community.  I know our numbers have thinned a bit with the release of Sims 3 but I know there’s gotta be a solid group out there somewhere.  I’ve poked around the internet but I just don’t have the time to research it all out.  So, I’m coming to all of you for assistance!

Where do you go?  What blogs are your favorites?  What do you look forward to reading?

The Harrisons and a few surprises will be back in a few days!

Kicking It Off

So, I’m coming way late to the party. Hopefully, there are a few folks hanging around the food table who don’t mind a late straggler! Ultimately, none of this is my fault. I blame my wife who said it was ok to spend some extra cash on Sims 2 Double Deluxe and a dear friend who handed down a speedy computer that could take the place of my 6 year old system that coughed and spit smoke on start-up. It’s not my fault, any of it. Really.

You see, I’m an old Sims 1 gamer. I devoted A LOT of time to playing it and loved it. Eventually, my interest did wane but not entirely. I continued to load the game up from time to time and it was on my hard drive till the day it died. Of course, when it died I had loaned my copy of my game to a friend who, of course, lost it. This combined with real life and a growing love of MMO’s and that little thing called Second Life caused the game to drift beyond the horizon for me. I saw that Sims 2 was out but I had other things going at that point. Was I ever stupid about that!

This was until the details I mentioned above which, again, were not my fault in any way, and I started playing again. I also want to mention that it was not my fault I just “happened” to stumble on this little thing called a legacy challenge, prosperity neighborhood challenges, and other devious ways to play the game. I was floored at the vast amount of material and stories out there. From that point on, I was hooked. I wasted no time taking my first experimental sim and proclaiming him my Founder for my first legacy challenge. And away I went!

One of the big mistakes I made the last time around was taking up so much time cruising web sites, modding, and playing with custom material that I forgot to play the game itself. This time around I don’t want to make that mistake. I’m not interested, at this point, in too much excess material. I was also torn about starting this blog. With children of my own and other projects I didn’t want to get bogged down again. I made an agreement with myself. As long as I could keep the posts light hearted, small, and fun then I can continue with this wackiness. The minute I start getting too serious or spending more time doing this than actually playing, this would be the first to go! So, you’ve been forewarned!

I want to thank everyone that’s come before me and the awesome material I find around every internet corner. You’ve inspired me to do my own thing with the game! I understand that as folks move on to Sims 3, I’m a little late. Who knows, maybe the best was saved for last?
