For those that have been following me for a long time, you guys know that I own the Sims 2 game and I talk about it once in a while around LJ (less DW as it's newer but still!) but I barely post about game play or pictures and such.

To be honest, in all the years I've owned the game, I spent most of my time downloading custom content, organizing the downloads folder, building and decorating and creating sims than actually playing at all. Oh, and I have redone my downloads folder about a billionth time, too. And I am in the process of doing just that again *laughs shyly*

Back in the day, let's say maybe 4 years ago, I decorated two neighborhoods completely and was extremely proud of them. I also recreated a neighborhood from another player... attempted too anyway, considering I was basing it on her on pictures and many things were not pictured or blurred or half hidden and I believe I did a good job anyway. Most of the pictures are broken now but I managed to save as many as I could to my computer (yeah, I know, I shouldn't but... I am not gonna get arrested for that, right. Also, I don't think she's online and playing anymore anyway!).

Sadly, I had an issue with the game somehow that made me lose all of them a while back (that required reinstalling one expansion. I actually lost all the neighborhoods and sims I had created actually and so, I would have to start from scratch again. I'm not sure I want to anymore... maybe... I mean, I spent so much time on them and to lose them the way I did... *sigh*

And so, I got these neighborhoods and houses I was extremely proud of and... all gone...

See the neighborhoods (2 of the 3) I am talking about and some extras )

I cannot wait to be done with re-arranging the downloads folder. Hopefully, it's gonna be the last time I do it. Adding to it, sure, that will happen, but re-doing it... hoping I never have to anymore.

I think this might finally be the year that I request Brian/Justin for SeSa.

And I have a prompt, too!

The other day, I started watching 13 Reasons Why and hadn't it been from work and every day life, I would have been done with it since I am basically marathoning it. I am halfway through it... Jessica's party.

I don't know how many of you did watch or are planning on watching it but so far, I like it. I do have an idea on certain things that are gonna happen and, to tell the truth, I was surfing for something else and got spoiled a little bit on something, which makes me a little bit mad but... you know... nobody did spoil me; it's all me *laughs*

Anyway, like I said, I like it so far. Intriguing.

This is inspired by a place by my work that does something similar, but with pear compote.

Ingredients:

* Sharp white cheddar (mine came from CostCo, the Coastal stuff)
* Rosemary bread (mine came from Trader Joe's)
* Lemon curd (another thing from Trader Joe's)
* Butter (I did unsalted, the cheddar is plenty salty enough)

Tools:

* Toaster Oven
* Frying pan and oven

Steps:

* Lightly toast one side of the rosemary bread in the oven
* One one slice of rosemary bread, put a pile of chopped up white cheddar chunks on the toasted side. Put it back into the toaster oven until the cheese gets pretty melty.
* While that's going on, spread lemon curd on the other piece of bread, on the toasted side.
* Put a pat of butter in your frying pan and melt it
* Take your melted cheesy bread out of the toaster oven, put both pieces together so the cheese of one side is against the lemon curd of the other
* Put your sandwich into the pan, swish it around, flip it to the other side--this will make sure that both sides have butter as you pan toast.
* Toast both sides of your sandwich in the pan with the butter, flipping as necessary. When it's toasted to your liking, put it on a plate.
* Tada! Fancy grilled cheese.

I've seen this pop up a few places and I thought it was interesting.

Let me explain what I'm talking about.

LJ/DW has this Interests section in the profile, and I think that's awesome but what I have seen here and there (not on DW or lj necessarily) is people post a jumble of pics of things they like and such.

Example: liking dogs, exercises, music,... they would have pics of each.

I have been thinking about doing that for myself. I have no clue if I'd only make a post about that or include it in my profiles or both but I like that idea.

Surely I'm not the only one that has seen that?

I was searching for something totally random online while killing time at work and I stumbled upon a gif of a movie I haven't seen in ages and that I really like.




Yep, Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead.




It is not the greatest movie of all time but what a lovely movie none the less.

I wonder where the actors are now and what they look like, too.
