Are pass (think bus/train) holders more popular in other countries? Because looking on eBay and the Disney designs (from Japan) are awesome. Trying to decide between my two favorite princesses, Rapunzel and Belle.

I know that the Japanese have a lot of labels for their passes as well. I have seen them here too, for Oyster cards...

When I was in Japan I saw a lot of pass holders, but they weren't the kind that I generally use so I didn't buy them. I think it's because of the prevalence of IC cards on their transport systems. That and the Japanese like making and selling stuff you don't really need but you end up wanting because it's cute.

That's why I have a small army of sushi with faces on my shelf and a giant slice of sashimi by my bed. Because reasons.

Thanks for the info, I learned something.  Yeah, it seems they love to make all the things. Even if you don't need a travel bag or tissue holder. But holy heck is everything so cute and the characters.

My nemesis was the stationery department. Because all the pencils. And all the cute. And all the little completely useless and irrelevant stuffed things that seem to lurk around stationery sections because why not? I have a lot of Japanese files with cute on them, too. My class notes for teaching next week are both in sumikkogurashi folders...

I've taken the year off from college, so I don't any school supplies but those are all so tempting. Especially the folders, well my class notes could get a nice upgrade. From the boring folders, they're currently housed in..

Is it wrong that I have spent this week watching somewhat questionable anime about the Sengoku period thanks to doing preparation for teaching my second year class?

I don't think it's wrong, is it Sengoku Basara or Sengoku Musou

Is it wrong that I keep thinking of things for my Attack on Titan FanFiction and not writing them down?

A mother pony can be protective of her young just like dogs.

Who wants to changed this sig into ponies?

I haven't watched either yet, actually. I keep meaning to watch Sengoku Musou because I know the voice artists and their concept, but because I know the history and it's quite brutal, I haven't yet. I'm considering Sengoku warriors as my next representation project so I'm sort of keeping Musou for that...

(I have a soft spot generally for Ishida Mitsunari and Akechi Mitsuhide in a real life history sense. Because I tend to like the warriors that everyone else likes to hate)

Basara I haven't got to yet. I am talking about even more questionable anime series than that, like ones in which they're suddenly vampires or a random kid from modern Japan ends up being Nobunaga...

And yes. Not writing things down is bad. But I guess you're like me and you think of things at that one moment when you have no way to write ><

I am amused by really silly things.

Yesterday on my way back from Ponycon, on my local region line there was a train weirdly running direct to my station without stopping. Usually there are several stops in between, so that was weird.

The train kept announcing stations but not stopping at them. The guard kept saying we weren't stopping at those stations and then the automatic announcement would announce them anyway.

And every time it said, mind the gap between the train and the platform edge.

And me, with my strange brain, thought that instruction must be for any adrenaline junkies or superheroes, who like jumping between moving trains. Since in most cases by the time the announcement happened, the platform edge had already been passed...

The train did indeed stop it's first stop at my station. Despite many auto announcements to the contrary ;)

Sometimes you just have to laugh at British trains.
