Note from Rachelskirts: Today's entry comes to you from the one, the only, Thursday's Child. Actually, there are a lot of people who were born on Thursday, and Tyler isn't one of them. He is, however, a really gifted writer and a fantastic friend, so I am thrilled to have so easily convinced him to write a guest post for me.

What do you say when you're asked to write for the blog of a girl who's already got a perfect life with Frodo Baggins? And when she's not making out with him, she's got Juan Pedro to keep her company.

As I understand it, I, too, have a dream life in the land of the Sims 2. My girlfriend gives me regular updates about how our virtual selves are doing. I am, apparently, quite fond of tinkering with all manners of things. This, of course, is directly opposite of what my original hobby was going to be: ornithology.

While I'm no enemy to nature, I can't really say that birds come to mind whenever I hear the word "Audubon." I'm not really an overly masculine guy, but come on. Who hears that word without immediately thinking fast cars in Germany? (Yes, I realize it's "Autobahn" for the road, and "Audubon" for the crazy pidgeon people. Shut up already.)

In any event, I've finally decided that Sims 2 is an acceptable way to live life. I mean, at least in the Sims you know when you're dirty, hungry, unhappy. Probaby the most helpful feature is being able to look at a little bar to know when you have to go to the bathroom. I know I hate it when that sneaks up on me. Anyone else with me there? No? No one? I guess I'll just change clothes and get back to The Sims 2.

Yes, I too hate it when it sneaks up on me.

I like Haikoo Pets better than Sims. When my hedgehog is hungry, there is no "little bar" bullshit. He changes into a bib and holds up his knife and fork.

I couldn't read this without wondering...

"What happens to the Crazy Pigeon People when "it" sneaks up on them?"

Are they the ones who've been running by and "dropping stuff" on my windshield?

(First of all, is it narcissistic to comment on my own guest post?)

I really just popped in to see what people were saying, and to answer Blindsquirrel's question.

Blindsquirrel: Yes.

When I first started reading this entry, I was like, "Umm. Perfect life? What on earth are you — ohhhh. That life." It's sad how often I wish I was my Sim, even if just for a little bit.

Bonus Skirts Trivia: I actually have, on several occasions, drawn out the little bars on a piece of paper and assessed my hygiene, bladder, environment, social, fun, energy, comfort, and hunger needs. It can be quite handy in determining whether I should shower or sleep, eat or pee, make out with Frodo's picture on my TV or take a nap. Although, of course, in that last scenario, naps never win.

If it makes you feel any better, I've done the exact same thing, Rachelskirts. Except for the making out with Frodo business. That's your shabangabang.
