Okay I don’t know if this theme will stick, but I wanted to blog about this regardless.
I’ve been MIA this weekend due to my dearest friesin’s (friend /cousin; we made up the word to describe our relationship) wedding. It was beautiful and crazy and a whirlwind. But she looked immeasurably happy and I’m so elated for her.
BUT, that’s has nothing to do with the Sims.
As stated in the “Gaming” section above (read: my confessions) I play a lot of computer games, including, but not limited to, various versions of The Sims. Well, I was wasting time on Facebook a couple weeks ago and I saw that there was a contest for The Sims Medieval. They were calling for screenshots of different throne room designs. I thought, “I’ve got one I’m proud of. I’ll just submit it on a whim.”
Here is what I submitted:
Well the results were posted on Friday and I WON! There were three winners and I was one of them! I was so surprised and flattered. I get a signed poster from the Developers of the game. This is probably more exciting to my husband who hopes to work for EA one day, but as someone who rarely wins anything, I was pretty psyched. As my gamer friends would say: Woot!
If you want to see the rest of the winning entries, go here. And if you think you might want to build a castle of your own, go here. And if you don’t know what the heck I’m talking about with this game, watch this awesome trailer with one of my favorite actors, Donald Faison (aka Turk from Scrubs, one of my favorite shows of all time).
