Take That New Age and Shove It

You know something? I didn't need to do a sort of spiritual housecleaning--no more than usual, anyway--I needed to do ACTUAL housecleaning. I washed all the windows I could get to without a ladder the other day. I dusted. I did laundry. I vacuumed. I swept and mopped the porch. The little things that had been lying around in piles here and there for, oh, nigh on two years? I picked them up and dealt with them, pleasant or no. And I feel 100% better.

Still poor. Still out of shape. Still prone to insomnia. Still the only 34 year-old woman I know who is way, way, way too excited about this. And to top it all off, today is the day for a loathesome little ceremony known as The Changing of the Litter Boxes.

But my house is looking fiiiiiiinnne.

Billy Crystal was right: It is better to look good than to feel good.

I know, could they hurry up with that? I want those new build mode features NOW.

I'm not sure if you're the only 34 year-old woman excited about Sims 2, but I'm probably the only THIRTY-NINE YEAR OLD WOMAN who is.

I wanted Simsville, but they scrapped it. :(

I had forgot about Simsville. That just looked so damned cute, too. No, instead they had to go with Sims Online. Stupid developers!

And Emma, you just made me feel a whole lot better.
