    Thought it might be nice to start a fun post about the devs that worked so hard for us- love them or hate them....

    Mine is Parizad calling EA Land a "mofo". Seems quite appropriate today!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    We're trying to bring it up, but EA-Land is like "Na-uh... try again later. Kthx!"

    ...and we're like, "Mofo! Come up! Come up now!"

    ...and EA-Landis like, "Pffft! You ain't the boss of me."

    So we're trying to convince her that yes, we are indeed the boss of her.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    That girl cracks me up! I hope to hear from her again before this is all said and done!

    But I will post one that is sorta.

    Parizad and I were driving across to Cali when she was moving to EA there... and we were in a Denny's (I Had never eaten at a denny's being from NYC) in Missouri I think.

    Well anyway she excuses herself to go to the rest room... and then about a minute later comes charging out telling me "You have to pay for lunch!" so i'm like "Um ok"
    and she's like no... I think I'm about to be caught.

    She had the mother of all toilet paper rolls in her purse and was nervous that the employee there saw her.

    Well they didn't, so she paid b/c she's generous like that... and then later gave it to Pit when we went to hang out at his house.

    Anyway that is prolly one of my favorite postable parizad moments, aside from Officer Rob.

    IDK if I have any appropriate Lee ones.

    kthnx.

    Ok for Parizad - it had to be the budding romance of her sim and Killer Clown in the community pub.

    But... I'm not done with Parizad yet [​IMG]
     
  8. I remember watching Lee on le'cam rolling on his deodorant. He didn't let us watch him shower, though. [​IMG]


    When Pari was with Jackie on their trip.. I had a blast sending dirty texts back and forth while they sat in the backseat of a car driven by her parents. &lt;3

    Just b/c EA-L is done doesn't mean my need for his assistance is... he's a smart mofo.

    Unfortunately I don't think he knows this yet.

    Guest Guest

    Gosh.. that Parizad is one good looking man... the boobs and girly figure sure had me fooled though when we met in real life. The womans voice and clothes had me fooled too.
    Dang ppl... she is a woman. Willy nilly silly old bears.
    Trust me on this.... I KNOW this.
    And a footnote on the t.p. she gave me. It was 5 finger discounted from a stripper bar. How about that for some wonderful trivia in the future?! [​IMG]

    If Parizad was a man... I would have made it so that she would have to marry me... in the way that old fashioned girls used to force their guys into marrying them.

    And I'm anti marriage.

    LOL Yes thank god she realized I wasn't husband material... talk about dodging a bullet.
     
  28. Parizad and the rest of the developers were a funny group of people, I always enjoyed and giggled at what they had to say.
     
  29. The man pantie drawer tour on Le'cam was educational and entertaining...Cal was a fun time...this one time...in TC3 I surrounded an AFK Lee with 50 flamingos and then married the repairman that was stuck on the lot for a couple days. [​IMG]

    Guest Guest

    For me it was the awesome days in the Pub in TC3. It was so exciting hearing the devs visions.

    Aside from that the long hours I spent on the phone talking to Lee will always be fond memories.

    &lt;3 guys I'll never forget the good times we shared.
     
  31. Not sure if this counts but... mine is getting to know so many of you. I think I could probably name 100 Sims off the top of my head that I knew and shared many fun times with. Not only did I get to know you as sims but many as people and you are truely one of a kind.

    Most of you have my Yahoo I know so don't be strangers now.

    Cheers,

    &lt;3

    PS... and the rum lets not forget the rum...

    I'll second that.

    Also working with Greg at the factory .... and him getting ripped off and paying over the odds for a pair of "work boots" because he ran out to buy them with only a few minutes left before the shift started, so didnt have time to shop around. Not sure why that tickled me but it did.

    Lee on here - the downtime during one particularly long update, the rum and him wanting a pirate smiley. That was a fun downtime.

    Guest Guest

    Ha! I remember that night, Polly! If we had all actually consumed the amounts of rum we talked about, we'd all have been toast!

    And of course, Lee's battle cry when going after exploiters- "Regulators, Mount Up!" [​IMG]

    P.S. **Hugs to Lee!**

    That night was one of my most favorites, too. Maybe because it is the most recent - but what I remember most about that night was the feeling of solidarity and fighting for the good of the game, even though it meant the server stayed down.

    I liked all the outage parties that happened on Stratics and the game rep and dev participation in them.
    I also very much enjoyed seeing a pic of Randy.

    Randy. Talented and lanky Mr. Randy.

  36. Oh..Easy one....that would be "Use the ATM's"


    Yeah right... I did and I want my money back.
     
  37. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Ok, here's mine... silly, but funny none the less. It was the first time that they implemented in game parties (skilling rate increase, increased pay on jams, etc.). Anyhow, I was at a moneyhouse jamming away when Lee landed at the house. Several of us decided to friend link with him. So there we all were worshiping, serenading, blowing kisses.. when suddenly he poofed! A few minutes later he returned, and had maxed his side of the link with everyone. For some reason it was taking me FOREVER to get my side of the link to 100% though. I just kept worshiping, serenading, blowing kisses.. Lee told me to stop and then starting luring me and dip kissing. So then everyone was joking and saying that I should put it in my profile that I was lured and kissed by Maxis Lee. LOL! It was a lot of fun!

    I guess that's what I really loved most about our devs. They like to have fun just like us. When Parizad posted the silly pics from her new phone onto the blog, I think it made us all realize that they were one of us.

  40. My favorite moment with the devs was.....

    when they spotted Iron Chef Starbuck's boobs post TC/TC3 merge.
    (don't know how'd they'd miss them since I would just follow them around on lots until they noticed finally. See I had been telling them "iron chef" has boobs and I didn't think they were listening so I took to stalking the devs with Mr. Starbuck's be-boobed body.)

    Can't remember who, maybe Randy or Larry kept having me log him out and they'd do something and log him back in and.....

    ....the boobs were there still. Time and time again. In fact, he still has his boobs!
     
  41. This is silly. something I heard a Dev say once ..made me laugh and cry...

    mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy






    don't ask.
