gourmetgaming: Love Potion #8.5 (The Sims 2 cocktail)

50ml / 1.5oz. Raspberry Lemonade

Fresh Lemon Juice
- Crush the raspberries and press them into the bottom of a tall glass then pour the crushed ice on top.

From the creator, Gourmet Gaming: “Is Valentine’s Day usually a total failure for you? Are you left bitter and alone, ranting about the commercialism and inherent flaws of the day to faceless people on the internet when all you really want is a hug? I know how you feel (I really don’t). If you’re looking to captivate a boy or girl this evening or you simply need someone to play co-op with because sometimes achievements demand you play a game with another person, then this is for you. Allow me to be your Gypsy Matchmaker. One sip of Love Potion #8.5 will ensure love at first sight and will only set you back a meagre §350! Can you really afford to put a price on true love? Fruity, fizzy and optionally intoxicating there’s no better drink to enjoy with the Sim you love this Valentine’s.”

"I like drinking coffee alone and reading alone. I like riding the bus alone and walking home alone. It gives me time to think and set my mind free. I like eating alone and listening to music alone. But when I see a mother with her child, a girl with her lover, or a friend laughing with their best friend, I realize that even though I like being alone, I don’t fancy being lonely. The sky is beautiful, but the people are sad. I just need someone who won’t run away."-(via myownlittleplace)
So I failed again holy moly, I wish I actually used this thing like I semi used too!
I’ve had so much to do on my plate lately that I’ve become so freaking stressed! & it isn’t helping that I’m letting everyone get to me at this point & its seriously messing up my mood. I’m always such a happy person & the last couple weeks I haven’t even been able to manage that. I am not one of those people who can handle/juggle everything at once.
Last nights the first night I stayed home in over a week. I’ve been staying at a friends house & then I left Calgary for 3 days & jeez do I wish it was longer. Baking, listening to country music & watching supernatural made me think about nothing. & then as soon as I come home everything’s piled again. Its like a lose lose situation lately. & I’m sooo sick of fighting with my parents.
My immune system has officially gone to shit. & I don’t think being so stressed is helping what so ever. My body seems to be catching everything & I’m so sick of it! I’m so unhealthy & its really starting to show. Like I have something called tinea versacolor now too. I just wanna like gahhhhhh.
These guys are supposed to come in to fabutan today & their getting in trouble for harrassing me the other day. I feel slightly bad because they were joking but still. I’m sick of pigs. & then I get to have needles galore at 1240 :( :( ugh I really hope best buys busy today!
My parents won’t stop talking to me about school next month. & I really don’t want to go back yet. I’m not ready at all. Plus, I need to actually start saving money frick. & then I find out they want to move in spring. :( wahhh.
Anyways, I think its time to sit down & face all my problems. Because holding them off isn’t working for me anymore. I feel like there’s a huge weight on my shoulders & I really need to get rid of it.
I need an iphone hmph.
& my mom to give me my ds & mario 3d now instead of the 25th.
& waffles, I’m starved.
Maybe some sushi too.
& a midnight game launch.
Fabutan, doctors then best buy. Praying its a good day.
Here’s to try going back to sleep, night
I’m so cold :(
Now here goes my rant.
1. I’m tired 2. I can’t sleep 3. My head is pounding 4. My nose is running 5. My throat is killing me 6. My tummy hurts to much right now 7. I want to die 8. It looks like my bed & a garbage can are my best friend for the day (I guess that’s what you get when you don’t dress properly in this shitty ass weather. Or when everyone at work & in your house is sick.) 9. I have to pee 10. My immune system is horrible 11. I feel hungry but I’m to scared 12. I bitch to much 13. I had to get rid of my pretty nails 14. I have to go to the doctors to change my pill 15. I wish me motivation & the gym were bffaes. 16. Waahhhhh.
Now, I don’t have my challenge for the day yet but when I get it this time I will upload it!
I need a bf who brings me medicine soup & crackers. & slurpees >:( why’s it so hard to find decent men sigh
Wish me luck in trying to fall asleep now.
