Saints Row Characters

I spent a moderate amount of time customizing characters for Saints Row 3 (actually, most of my time with the "Initiation Station" character creation tool was spent Nancy Drew-ing why it was telling me my pretty unique name, "thriceberg", was taken.  It was a big mess, I think having something to do with my using it once with a THQ account.  I don't even remember how I got it sorted out.).  Then I went to and saw all the cool characters other people have made.  I ended up using other people's models, occasionally tweaking to suit my desires.

I was browsing the models in preparation for Saints Row 4 (which can use the same character models as SR3.  Thanks, Volition!) and saw there are quite a few good ones.  I'm going to link to the pages, but I suspect the web site's age verification wall will forget links (it did during SR3's release).  So I'm also going to include a picture.  If the creators of these models has a problem with that, let me know in the comments and I'll take them down.  That said, if I could see them in the first place that means they were set up to be public, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Having a Cat

I haven't had a cat for years.  Just the same, as I'm sitting her in this mostly unfamiliar place, with it's strange noises at all hours of the day and night, I'm reminded of one of the best reasons to have a cat.

It's because any if you hear an odd noise at night, you can just shrug it off as your cat messing around in another room and go back to sleep.  If your cat happens to be laying on your bed at the time you can still shrug it off, because your cat probably has a better danger sense than you.  If it isn't perked up and staring at the direction of the noise, it's probably nothing of import.

Apparently my upstairs neighbors are having work done, or else someone has been locked in the closet and are trying to alternatively tap and hacksaw their way out.  I saw an air conditioning van in the parking lot, so I'll assume it's the former.
