Okay, so, today was my birthday, and this weekend I got to go see my boyfriend up at his college, and generally had fun- my aunt went with me and my mom up there, and my aunt is possibly one of the most fun people ever, so I couldn't have not had fun, really. But, the point of this post is less to babble about my weekend and more to squee over what I got.

My aunt gave me fifty bucks. Naturally, as I desperately wanted AL still, I went and bought it at the Wal-Mart there. As soon as we got back, I got on the computer and installed it, and now I'm going to go play around once I finish catching up on everything I missed this weekend.

I desperately want Apartment Life- I have ever since I heard about the witches, I think- but I can't get it because I can't afford it right now. And if I could, I'd have the lovely internal debate of "do I pull all my hacks and install it now, or do I wait until they're updated for it and install it then?", which would eventually end in "pull the hacks, I'm not that patient", as it tends to.

And everyone is talking about getting it, it seems, even though I'm sure my mind is exaggerating things, and I wish I could just go out and get it right now. And I CAN'T, and it's just making me even more impatient, and it's driving me insane.

(In other news, I do already have a neighborhood set up to test it out in/play with it in, in case the hacks I use regularly aren't updated by the time I *do* get it. The neighborhood is completely empty and won't be touched at all until I get it....)

(Also, for anyone who has it- please, go ahead and tell me how awesome it is! I'll sit here jealously, but I'll be thankful in the long run.)

I was seriously getting frustrated with how many awesome houses I keep seeing from people who have FT, and not being able to download them. Plus, I wanted secondary aspirations back, because I loved those.

I'd like to point out that I always roll for a sim's aspiration by the time they become a toddler, or right after they do. I have a notebook where I keep all their stats- zodiac, personality points, aspiration, and original turn ons and turn offs, just so I don't forget any of this.

I decided I'd roll for secondary aspirations for all the kids born in the legacy haven. Anyone who rolled their primary aspiration wouldn't get a secondary, but everyone else would. It is insane how many times Popularity rolled up- at least half of the ones who didn't have it as their primary aspiration rolled it. Which means most of them are popularity sims now, since several rolled it as their primary as well.

I don't mind this- I was hoping they'd have some sort of close community or something, especially since half of them are related somehow- but I've only recently started to get better at playing popularity sims and getting sims to interact without double minuses everywhere.

Only two sims rolled their primary aspiration- Daniel and Gabby- which I kind of like, because I feel like Daniel at least is very suited to his aspiration.

I haven't gotten around to doing much on any other projects, unfortunately, but there should be another Legacy Haven update out soon-ish. I'm finishing about one house on the rotation every day I have time to play, which means probably by the end of the week, if I don't end up getting pulled into some other idea or something.


Also, I have a thread on for the Legacy Haven, because I'm really hoping more people (especially those whose simselves and legacy sims I'm using) will see it.

I've reinstalled Sims 2 Deluxe, and was just going to play with that to soothe my need to play (I swear, I was going crazy- when I have nothing to do, I usually play sims, and I hadn't played in nearly a week, at least....), until I realized that meant not having one of my favorite maxis-made hairstyles in the game- the fauxhawk. So I reinstalled Uni, too, and I'm leaving it at that and a very, very small amount of CC until I can get the rest of my EPs back- and even then, I'm not sure I want to reinstall FT. It didn't add much that interested me, though I do love the toddler table and some of the other items it adds- just not the majority of the features, really. The hobby stuff annoys me, though I love secondary aspirations- it helps make my simself accurate (knowledge/fortune sim. Money and nerdiness. Very, very accurate.), and it adds a whole new dimension to the personalities of some sims. But, I do believe I can do without it.

I downloaded a couple 'essential' hairstyles- my absolute favorites as well as some that certain sims just don't look right without- and I'm going to download all my favorite clothes from Club Crimsyn (the only CC site my sims really wear anything from) tomorrow. I'm going to stick with the whole minimal CC thing, too, even once I get the other EPs back, just to cut down on loading time. Before the explody-thing my comp did, my game took nearly twenty minutes to load on a good day. It took, at most, five minutes (and that's probably a lot more than it actually took) to load today, after reinstalling. It makes me wonder what I was thinking with all that CC, really, since I almost never used most of it. I think I have... five custom hair meshes in my game now, and four or five maxis hairstyles converted for all ages (including the fauxhawk, because toddlers with fauxhawks are cuter than cute). And everything else I downladed was recolors of those custom hairstyles.

Edit- oh, yeah, and I redownloaded my default replacement eyes and all the extra eye colors that go with them. They're the Lyran eyes, in case anyone's curious. I like them because the green eyes remind me a bit of my eye color, except yellow-browner than mine are.

Edit 2- and now for a book meme taken from [personal profile] ndainye  .

Okay, I think that's enough edits for now...
