No judgement here, my friend. Whatever gets you rockin’ that handheld game is fine by me. ;)
I need to check out the handheld animations!
Yeah, you should. It may be somewhat reflective of my own vision of how silly people’s faces often look when they, umm, “take matters into their own hands” but I think it works.
justazombiewithakeyboard asked: the <3< symbol is a spade, and it's used to represent a type of relationship among a species in homestuck. The spade represents romantic hate/rivalry, so like, they view each other as equal rivals in hate... it's a bit weird but rather fascinating actually.
Ah! Thank you for that. That is indeed an interesting concept, and one that I think would describe a potential Tank/Johnny pairing to a T.
But not so much the romance bit in S,HWC. Replace that with complicated family connections and it works pretty well. Like it or not, they will continue to be linked to each other in one way or another so they will at least have to learn to tolerate each other. Not an easy task for either of them.

Ha! I don’t think I have an animation box for that. Then again, it hasn’t stopped me before and it really is amazing what you can do with the “smelling flowers” and “playing with handheld game” animations. (Handheld… *snicker* Oh the innuendo.)
thrillainvanilla asked: wait, strange...how do you know about <3< ? Are you a secret homestuck?
Erm, no… I thought that was just a heart symbol with an extra “greater than” symbol added for emphasis for some mysterious reason (or maybe just a mistake). And I just tried to google it and came up with nothing. What does it mean?
As for Homestuck, I’ve read/played some of the first chapter and I’m intrigued by the format it’s told in, but it demands more of my active attention than I can spare these days. Maybe one day I will check it out a little further.
Okay, Johnny… now what the hell were you actually doing in my livejournal header pic?
Note to self: make notes next time, because you never know when you might want to recreate something like that.
(Yes I make myself notes to make notes. Stop laughing at me.)
Yes, I think randomness is what’s giving us the impression that there are certain patterns to it, since random often doesn’t seem random to us (we expect it to be equally random, etc.).
Compare this with the 50/50 randomness of having a male or female baby (in real life as well as the game). After 8 male babies in a row (as it happened with my grandmother), it stops feeling random, but it most certainly is.
You’re welcome! :) I hope that was at least somewhat accurate.
Sorry, disregard the last, I’ll rephrase: so in your experience, with a dream date, getting a gift sometimes happens and sometimes not, but there are always flowers? Never had the note or the flaming bag of poo — must try it myself. :)
I’ve had some other replies on this topic, and there seems to be very little consensus, so I did some searching. There’s a thread on MATY and someone mentioned that flowers are dropped off on the night of the date (I’m pretty sure they always do), but gifts (if being given - I’m also pretty sure that’s random) will be dropped off on the following night. If you date the same sim again on that night, you won’t get a gift because they will already be there on your lot (which holds true for me, because I rarely have sims take second dates).
Most non-flower rewards come after call-back dates, and most after call-back dream dates. However, Castor Nova once received a lawn flamingo after a one-off good (note level) date. I figured that was his date sending me a message.
I’m not sure what you mean by a “call-back” date. Is that when they call you up for a repeat date? I almost never accept those and have had plenty of date gifts, so I don’t think it’s dependent on that. But perhaps it raises the odds?
