Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

No new episodes of The Simpsons this week, but be sure to vote in our Christmas Episode Ranking Poll

Winter Event Act 2 hit earlier this morning, what are your thoughts so far on the new prizes and game changes?

Only 1 week until Christmas (and less than that until the start of Hanukkah)!!!!  Have you finished your shopping yet?!

How was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  I’ve finished my shopping, and almost all the wrapping (still waiting on a handful of items to come in).  Today we’re planning on making Christmas cookies and watching the best Christmas Movie (or any movie really), It’s a Wonderful Life. (I should note that yesterday we also watched Christmas Vacation (classic) and the Veggie Tales version of It’s a Wonderful Life, Riley enjoy the dancing veggies 😉 )

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

  1. Looking through my Character collections I have found Founders with 2 characters greyed out but have not had any quests to get them any ideas how I do.

  3. I’m loving the parsons little ditty. ‘I love to go to church. It’s where I like to be. I stay and pray all day and still tee off by 3’
    Finally, a car that travels on the road.
    Currently earning bonuts. I’m getting 3 a day so pretty happy with that. I’ve still got a few quest lines waiting to be done but I’ll wait till the event finishes to do them. Does anyone know what Marges do the laundry task is linked to? It’s part of a quest.
    I’m so looking forward to New Years Eve. We will be partying on a boat on the Yarra river, viewing the city skyline and watching the fireworks. There will be a live band on board too. Haven’t had a decent NYE ever. Usually stay home and watch fireworks on TV.
    We are going on a driving trip to Sydney for a few days then visiting some friends in NSW. It’s nice to have the family at home.

    I’d like to start with thanking you for all your hard work guys, even a “seasoned pro like me”😂😂 needs your help😀

    I’d also like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, or however you celebrate. (Or maybe not celebrate)😀

    Now a question for our experts. I have no option to purchase anything with event currency 😳 The tab isn’t even there😕 I hope EA comes up with something for me to purchase. Now all my efforts to collect are a complete waste. I only had a few items, (in the box) to to purchase 😱 I’d like to think they’d at least give me some more options. I’m sure there are others in the same boat.

    PLEASE EA, add SOMETHING & let me collect towards it 😃😃😃😃

    I’ve been slaving over a hot stove lately, channeling Julia Child. I’m so pleased with the result. I’ve never cooked this before and it will be a while before I make it again. I had to do it at least once in my life. It’s a Pate de Canard en Croute (boned stuffed duck in a pastry shell)
    It took all day to make. Had to have a g&t, a good lie down and a day off afterwards😄

      • It would be a very long and expensive trip for you to be here on Christmas Day! I’m afraid it will be devoured by the time you get here😉I’ll save you some.
        By the way, me and my family will be visiting the US around October next year. We are taking my daughter to the Supernatural convention in New Orleans and travelling around for about 3 weeks. We haven’t worked out the details yet but I would love to meet up with some TSTO addicts If possible. Would you be interested in meeting up with us then?

            I’ll have to exchange contact details with you. It’s still a long way off so plenty of time. It would be great to meet you xxxx

          • Hi Sue, I’m so excited I’ll get to meet you in person. I’m only 1 1/2 hours from Orlando! I have gotten in touch with one person in here, Alissa got both our permission and forwarded email info. We can ask her after things calm down if she will hook us up. If that doesn’t work out we can exchange emails some other way not sure if both of us are willing to put email in open thread. We have time so we WILL figure it out. I can’t wait to see you.
            What is Supernatural in New Orleans? Enjoy your family, Cheers!

          • There was no reply option to your latest comment so I’m putting it here. I’m so excited!! I’m sure we can hire a car for a day and come to see you. I’d love to meet Chewfred and Hank too.
            Supernatural is a tv show that my daughter loves and there is a pop culture convention in New Orleans as well as other parts of the US. She likes collecting photos of movie and TV stars and meeting them. There are usually about 4 or 5 that come to Melbourne and Sydney throughout the year but not all of the higher profile stars come out to Australia so she has been harassing us for years to travel to the states. We finally gave in.
            I travelled to the states many years ago, the 80’s, so it will be interesting to see it again after all that time. So looking forward to meeting you! 😘

            Chewfred and I can also go to Orlando, only thing you wouldn’t meet all the dogs, (woof). You are all more than welcome to come here. Let me know while planning your trip if you need help or suggestions. Hope you had a great Christmas, how was dinner?

          • Some inside info would be great! Dinner was lovely. The duck terrine was very rich but good. My fave has to be my brothers roast pork with crackling. The choc mousse cake was pretty good too. We don’t do the traditional plum pudding any more. Weather too hot. Thanks for offering to drive to Orlando. I really appreciate it. what did you do on Christmas Day?

          • Hi Sue, sorry for delay had to make another trip to vet all day venture as Hank not feeling well, and I have pneumonia. Needless to say not a fun day. It’s hot here too well not for FL but too hot for a lay down in jeep so we drove, stopped, drove, etc…..Thank you for your kind words but alas my boy isn’t doing well. Vet said murmur is bad and not going to get better he has a tear in his heart valve. I love him and not giving up, but very sad. We put him on heart meds and will pray for the best. I’ve had miracle happen with other dogs so hoping for one for him, he is the sweetest boy. Enough I’m depressing myself lol.
            Christmas was at Chewfred’s her Dad & wife came over. They all had prime rib (I don’t eat meat). The chocolate mousse cake sounds so good. This was my first ever Christmas no chocolate ☹️.
            I am happy about your trip, excited to meet you & your daughter and anyone else traveling with you.
            Are you near beaches where you live?
            Hope all is well with you my friend.

          • All is well here but I’m so sorry you’re not well. I’m hoping Hank gets better too. Fingers and toes crossed. It will soon be the new year so maybe that will bring you some joy.
            Yes we are near the beach, a 20 minute walk. We live near Port Philip Bay. If you go to Google Earth you can zoom in. Type Gardenvale, Melbourne, Australia. That should take you there.
            Sending hugs and positive thoughts to you and Hank. Hang in there🌈☀️💫

          • So jealous Sue of the beach! kidding of course. I miss the beach since moving, it’s about hour & half drive now and not as nice as beaches down south.
            Hank’s test didn’t come back too good so dealing with another issue on top of heart, but I’m going to love him & not give up. Thanks for the support.
            Do you have big plans for New Years? Mine will probably be home trying to keep dogs calm from fire crackers! I’m not much on going out, it’s an expensive venture here in states, with not such great food, then you drive with pep drinking & driving, so I’ve always stayed at home with a party at house or lately it’s just been a quiet night. I am however happy to put this year to rest, So many losses personal and all the celebrities. Bring in the new year.🎉🎊🍾🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈

  7. I don’t know if ea is reading this but could the mods please show it to them? Next year I would LOVE to do a “Home Alone” event. It could be called Homer Alone. We could have snake, the babysitter bandit and other crooks break into the sims on house and homer and Bart have to set up traps to stop them.

    LOL I read an article/review by Andrew Cross on askmen.com about MeUndies. Having pretty much given up on shopping for the personal or meaningful gift portion my impossible to shop for boyfriend, based on the article, I got curious and went to the MeUndies.com site and got him a 3 pack of the dark colors, but maaaaaan, if he was a TSTO player/addict, I SO would’ve gotten him the pink pack as it showed ONE COVERED IN PINK DONUTS WITH SPRINKLES!!! Bwaaaahahah!! Hmmmm… They also have women’s wear…. Gonna have to go back and look at those now Heeheehee 😉

  10. Hi Alissa,
    First off loved, loved, loved Riley dancing with Homer! Chewfred just lost a long time friend to,horrific car accident this morn when she came home I said have the perfect thing to make you smile, we watched it 3 times and yes she was laughing! Those curls and eyes are beautiful. Delightful to see a happy baby at Christmas time.
    I support the no open thread on Sunday, can’t you just keep this one open? All of you need to be with your families, as much as we as a community love being in touch with each other we can agree to wish everyone a happy whatever you celebrate early and take Sunday off.
    Hope you are enjoying your new home this Christmas season.
