It’s been sort of a quiet weekend here in the Darc household. We got a ton of snow at the beginning of it, close to a foot, I’m sure. I thought about taking a picture of it but … nah. Seen one blank page, you’ve seen ‘em all, and that’s all snow looks like – a big blank page, only colder.
We watched football, a lot of football. I should really say that Darc watched football while I listened as I played my Sims. They were some good games, too! The Championship games next weekend are going to be really exciting, I think and I’m looking forward to seeing them. And after that, just one more game, (not counting the Pro Bowl because really, who counts the Pro Bowl?) and then football’s over, OVER until next September. Maybe I could make a Tom Brady Sim? Now there’s an idea! There is a sports star career track … .
My baby Falcon is a wit already. Know what she said to me? We have this thing, where I ask her, “Howdja get so cute?” and she would giggle in response. Now she says, “I’m cute because I love you so much!” That kid! I swear, I’m like putty in her little hands. And my son is a mini-Darc, already mocking TV shows and the voices he hears on commercials. He’s got Grampu down pat, and if you don’t know who Grampu is, don’t worry, you probably will after you have toddlers in the house.
I’ve also become re-absorbed in reading The Stranger Beside Me, by Ann Rule. It’s been a long time since I last read it, and while there’s some updated information in this latest release, it’s almost like reading it for the first time, again. I think what fascinates me is that I probably wouldn’t have known any better either, like Ann herself didn’t know, that the nice young man she befriended was so twisted. Surely you’re not talking about my friend! No, no, my friend isn’t a sexual psychopath serial killer! I would know something like that! Yeah, we all like to think that, don’t we? I’m only half-way through the book, and despite knowing how it ends, I can’t put it down. Ted’s been dead 20 years now, and still he captivates and mesmerizes. One can only imagine he was even more so in life.
Back to the Sims to raise the babies, send them to college, marry them off. In some expansion packs you can make vampires and werewolves, I’ve read. Gardener me, I made a PlantSim. One thing’s for sure though, there are no serial killers in Simland.
