This is what happens to Ariane when she sees a TV:
Her roommate/landlord doesn't like having cable/satellite TV in the house so poor Ari gets her fix when and where she can!
I know for a fact that I would wither away and die without the TeeeVees in my house.
When we left Denver, we filled up with gas and drove the 1 1/2 hours to visit my cousin in Colorado Springs. Our gas was still good, so I didn't fill up there. When we hit Raton, NM, (where we filled up on the way up) the readout said "168 MILES TO EMPTY." I thought to myself, 'Oh, We can drive another hour or so...'
In another hour or so, I started looking for a place to stop. UM, THERE WAS NOTHING. In Northern New Mexico, gas stations are NOT a priority.
Plus, we both needed to pee. But I wouldn't stop because I didn't want to waste any of our precious fumes!!!
At this point, we still saw NOTHING UP AHEAD:
I know that cars can drive beyong empty, but I had NO IDEA how far I'd have to push it...
Oh, and as I was leaving my cousin's house in Colorado Springs, she had chastised me for not having a GPS/TomTom/Garmin thing in my car. Arggh!
We finally made it to Las Vegas, New Mexico with THREE miles to go til we had to gamble with our gas level.
I found out that in these small New Mexico towns, people don't flush their toilet paper, they THROW IT IN THE TINY GARBAGE CAN NEXT TO THE TOILET.
Really bad smells. Blech.
Ariane had mentioned the awesome vending machine in the bathroom - she was sad because she didn't have any quarters.
She really wanted to know what treats were awaiting in the Fantasy 6 Reloaded. With NEW ITEMS!
So I got her a treat... It was really difficult to get my 3 quarters shoved into the machine, but I eventually did it...
Cherry-flavored body paint! Mmmmmm delish!
