Knock, knock! Housekeeping!

This post is… exactly what the title suggests it is. There are a couple of things I want to mention without making my regular posts any longer or more excitement-packed than they already are, so here goes!

Number One is this:


Sorry, I was halfway through cropping that when a wasp attacked me IN MY LIVING ROOM. Let’s try again, shall we?


Better. And a real Christmas miracle for that matter! A lot of you probably got this notification ages ago and were all “meh, cool, whatever,,” but a n00b blogger gets really excited about these things, and adds extra commas out of giddiness, so please allow me a very brief happy dance. (You won’t have to watch, I promise.)

500 likes! That’s the same as…
– the number of days of summer for Joseph Gordon-Levitt
– half the number of miles I would walk to fall down at your door*

Basically, it’s a lot, and I couldn’t have done it without you guys! Literally… that number isn’t even a measure of things I did, it’s a measure of the times you pressed a button to humour me and my silly sims.

So, to say THANK YOU THANK YOU I DON’T DESERVE YOU, I wanted to do something special. I looked at who the 500th person to press that “Like” button was… It was MichelleLynn01, author of The Insanity Family Backwards ISBI! Michelle, check your account, ‘cause I gifted you this:


I know, it’s a crappy wall gecko. But as such, it feels like an appropriate offering from the Langurds to the Kooks, don’t you think? XD Hope you don’t already have it, ‘cause that would be awkward.

*I do a great interpretive dance to that song at wine nights.


Number Two! Liebster questions from laserkatt!

1. If you had to pick any career or profession from the sims games (any) to do yourself, which one would you choose?

Gahhh! I’m a fragile young graduate who flinches at the word “career.” I want to be a writer/editor IRL, but I hate playing writer Sims. Maybe Acrobat for the costumes? Oooh, or Interior Designer.

2. If you could only listen to five albums for the rest of your life, which ones would you pick?

The Music in the Wood – Tanglefoot
Archangel – Two Steps from Hell
Save Rock and Roll – Fall Out Boy
The Lord of the Rings Soundtrack – Howard Shore
Greatest Hits – Queen

Sadly I am programmed to get bored of absolutely everything, so this would still end in me tearing out my eardrums.

3. Cheese?


4. How many legacies/challenges have you attempted (and completed if ever)?

Herp de derp, can I skip this one? Well alright… 9 Legacies + 2 Asylum Challenges + 1 Prosperity Challenge = 0 success stories. Do I get an award for that? XD

5. Do you ever do anything creative other than writing?

I actually have an Etsy store and a sewing blog that I’m in the process of setting up! I also play piano and drums, draw, write comics, and carve pumpkins. (So like, I guess so.)

6. Last series/thingy you binge watched, or just enjoyed thoroughly? (I know some people have lives, what the hell) Would you recommend it?

Life? Netflix IS life. Currently working on Downton Abbey, which has tripled my tea intake and made me want to wear fancy hats and say the word “luncheon” all the time.

7. How long have you been active within the sims community? (writing a blog counts as being active)

I made my first blog in the summer of 2011. But before that, back in 2005 or something, I used to upload stories on the TS2 Exchange. #cavemandayz

8. Are there any other games besides the sims that you love?

I’m a Nintendo loyalist (Pokémon Forever) and a DDR champion. Tbh I’m scared to get into much else because I fall hard into fiction and may never resurface. However, if anyone has recommendations…

9. If you had the opportunity to tweak one thing in Sims 3 to make it better, what would you do?

I would correct the grammar in all the pop-ups. I’m sorry, that’s the lamest answer ever, but it would help me sleep at night.

10. Pick a tumblr-fandom to set fire to.



11. so i herd u liek mudkips


Squirtle says it all.


Number Three!

This website’s three-year anniversary is coming up on July 12th, and I have some plans! Why am I calling it an anniversary? This blog is very, VERY single. Let’s just call it a birthday. You’re all invited to the party and we’re gonna get krunk. #LangurdBirthdayBash2015

Okay no, but really, I need your simselves for the festivities. In no particular order (I lied, it’s alphabetical) here are the poor unfortunate souls I already have in my clutches:


If you want to be a part of a really fun time (disclaimer: enter at your own peril), you have until about July 10th to link me your simself. If you’re on the list and you’d rather not take your chances with this super secret mission, that’s fine too! Just let me know in the comments and I’ll count you out.


Thanks, I’m all done now. Consider your pillows fluffed and your minibars full. Housekeeping out.

  1. Here’s my simself; she’s mostly CC free except for Anubis hair (which Lev wears, so I know you already have it):

    Can’t wait to see what you come up with for the birthday 😀


    • Yay, thanks! I’m so looking forward to this. I just read the generation of the Zales that your simself married into, so I remember the hair! It’s one of my favourite styles. 😀


  2. Congratulations on the likes and Happy (soon to be) Annibirthsery!

    Jesus, I googled Archangel and it’s so damn epic! Now I know what I can have playing in the background while doing mundane crap like brushing my teeth or unloading the dishwasher to make it feel amazing.
    Can’t remember if you have the hairstyle I use but just in case:

    Just gonna leave that there so…bye-bye.


    • Thank you! 😀 To be honest, I’m not even sure if I have that hair or not (I need to start trimming my CC catalogue). But I’ve downloaded it now, so all good!

      I am so in love with Two Steps from Hell. They have this song called Winterspell that’s my absolute favourite, but it’s on another album with not as many good songs so I had to make the sacrifice. If you liked Archangel you should definitely check out some more of their stuff! They’ve been the soundtrack to a hundred essays and laundry folding sessions for me…

  3. I think I was way too happy to see my name up there, but I finally have my baby back and I’m up and simming – when I’m not dealing with game crashes, that is! Here’s the link for my simself, I only have two pieces of CC but as a somebody who is completely useless with files and filesharing I have no idea if they go through or not, or if this even works!

    Genuinely excited for the birthday, and terrified for the rest of the chapters to come!


  4. If you want her. Sim!Tam 2.0 is available and always ready for a party.

    congrats on the blog birthday, congrats on the 500 likes! That is incredibly awesome and jealousy inducing! Love it.

    And another liebster award. You truly rock!


  5. OMG!!! Looking forward to seeing my simself humiliate herself. Show her no mercy 😉


  6. Yay! Congrats on reaching 500 likes! And thank you for the gecko! He will make an appearance on the Kooks at some point. 😀


  7. No idea what your mischievous plan is, but here I am.
    I included a notepad with the links and info about the hair, all from TSR. ^^


  8. Hey Gryff! I was wondering if my simself could get in on this party shenanigan.

    It’s an old one that I made a long while ago… but I haven’t made a new one. I don’t think he has any CC. Except he might have that faux hawk from the store… I’m not sure…


  9. Drapple. What the actual hell o_o *sets fire to 100% of tumblr*

    The only sims challenge I’ve ever managed to complete is the asylum challenge in Sims 2. Only one sim died, so yeah. Pretty awesome 8’D

    Also birthday shenanigans o/ As it involves all the simselves I don’t understand how it won’t end in everybody dying in horrible accidents, a la asylum challenge, but it sounds brilliant ❤ Either way I'm really looking forward to it 😀


    • Yeah, 100% was probably the correct answer to that question. XD

      That is pretty impressive! I think I got so frustrated on both attempts that I just gave up. But now I have the weirdest urge to try again…

      I’m quite looking forward to it myself. 😀 I have some concrete plans, but there will also be much improvisation. I cannot guarantee that there will be no death


  10. I got a wasp in my pants once…in my kitchen. My husband and child laughed hysterically while I did the retarded strip tease of death while screaming bloody murder. I ended up stung 3 times too. Congrats on 500 likes, even though it’s probably 50,000 by now.

  11. Oh my gosh! XD I’m sorry, I tried really hard not to laugh at this because it sounds absolutely awful, but I can’t help it, not when you use the phrase “retarded strip tease of death”! Thankfully I’ve never been stung in my home (though living in a log house, they do like to hibernate in our ceiling beams) but I did get one in my shoe a few summers ago. Good times.

    More like just over 1,000, but thanks! 😀
