1. I make lots of plans for the future, but it just feels like I'm playing with legos: oversimplified, insubstantial, childish, imaginary.

2. We used to play "House" a lot. We'd take turns being the kids or the parents, telling the children to go to sleep and go to school and cooking and eating dinners.

Families at hyperspeed, The Sims as a LARP game.

3. Is living real life a bit boring after zooming through it in The Sims or building and destroying empires in Civilization? The micro becomes the macro becomes the micro.
