It did not surprise me at all that there was a train broken down right in front of my train yesterday afternoon. It was the day where 2 broke down that morning, after all.

I was mildly surprised when they had my train come into the station and give the broken train a push start. Is that really standard operating procedure for this situation??

My train was then totally packed so I had to wait for the next one. And then I missed my bus. So I was pretty cranky when I finally got home.

I wish there was a better way to get to work. My alternative is driving, but then ben has no way to get to work. *sigh*

Could you carpool with someone? Either someone you work with or someone who lives near you and goes to the same part of town?

No one lives near me because no one is insane enough to live as far as I do from work.

Oh btw on a totally random tangent.. XD;

Are you still watching Heartcatch Precure? I started watching it this week and am almost caught up... I'm surprised that I like it so much since I haven't been impressed with Precure shows before. I don't have a lot of people to talk about magical girl anime with.... XD;;

Yes! I'm still watching it! I was surprised I liked it too!

I really like Tsubomi. She comes across as so much more...genuine than Precure's usual characters.

The mascot pooping out the heart seeds though? Creeeepy.

I haven't seen much of the other seasons of Precure, but the characters in them certainly seemed a little more forgettable, while Heartcatch is putting a lot of effort into character development. I really like both Tsubomi and Erika... and though the character designs are kind of simpler I actually like them and enjoy the lively animation, funny facial expressions, and overall stylization. The pooping heart seeds thing is definitely weird though, especially since it usually comes right after a heartwarming scene. O_o At least the mascots don't have to say their name every time they talk, which immediately makes them about 100 times less annoying than the other Precure mascots! They desu but I think I've just gotten used to that by now. XD

I'm really enjoying it though. I hope it doesn't crap out like Shugo Chara has, though at least since it's an original anime series they shouldn't have problems like SC with catching up to/passing the manga.

YES! The mascots not saying their name over and over may be the very best part of the show.

The mascots in Pretty Cure 5 were the creepiest in my opinion because they can turn into humans and there were romance plots between them and the girls. Eww!

I only saw one episode of Precure 5 (I seriously didn't think I could stand any more than that!) and I found the hot guy/mascot thing deeply strange.

Man, that's just making me think about how awful the first episode of Precure 5 was compared to Heartcatch Precure. Precure 5 was kind of like "Here's a bunch of stuff! 5 main characters! Mascots! Toys! Monster fight!" but didn't give you any reason to actually care about any of it. : /

Is the original Pretty Cure worth watching? I'm thinking of giving it a second chance (I didn't like it when I first watched it but I only saw one or maybe two episodes) but it's kind of a hassle... I'd either need to proxy to watch it on CR or torrent the first 26 episodes together. DX

I think of all the precure series, Heartcatch is the best with the original Pretty Cure being second best. That said, I tried to get into it but couldn't. And I tried really hard.
