Thus begins the Spamming

I just noticed how VERY far behind I am on pictures. Fortunately, I took a LOT of them this weekend, so I'll have some to share.

So we'll start at the beginning of the voyage, which was Day 152 (and, incidentally, January 30, so yeah... I know).


The road from Phoenix to Vegas is a long, rather dull one, with a few really gorgeous vistas and a few little stops along the way. I found this when I stopped in the tiny roadside town of Wickiup:



And when I brought it to the counter, I made a comment about how I just couldn't resist this silly mug... and the lady told me they sold "so many of these things because of that late-night guy!" Hee hee hee.

And as a bonus, this is the view from that gas station/convenience store where I got it:

I might've had to have that mug, myself? It's really cool. I probably would've foisted it off on someone, though, my brother or my nephew; possibly cornerofmadness.

If you watch The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, there's another reason to love it, aside from its obvious awesomeness...

No, if I'm up during late night shows, I'm watching a movie or Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. :D

I cannot afford this TiVO you speak of.

I lucked into a refurbished one at Big Lots a few years ago, and the $13 a month is negligible, considering how much I use it.

*nod* My brother keeps telling Mom she needs it.

I know. I think I could easily give up any and all of my bad habits except for television...

Fortunately, I don't really pay much attention to the TV. It's on for background noise, for the most part. Unless it's something I'm really fascinated by....

As a Craig Ferguson fan, I immediately thought, "OMG IT'S THE MUG!!" He says it's a phallic thing. It tends to freak out some of his guests. It's AWESOME. *iz jealous*

I knew you and nutmeg3 would recognize the mug! Heee!! I was SO blown away when the clerk told me that I'm not the only Craig fan to buy one there, too!!!

OMG! You can toast Craig with a matching mug! ::envies::

If they'd been a little cheaper I'd have bought one for everyone, but...

Wow -- it's even more impressive when you take a close-up shot of it like that!

And I love that you included the bonus picture :) Context makes everything better!

How many hours is it from Phoenix to Vegas?

It's actually a little annoying to drink from if one wears glasses... *g*

It's about a five-hour drive, depending; I left at 7:21 and pulled in about 1 o'clock (or noon, Vegas time; in the winter we're off them an hour) -- I made a couple of stops on the way up, and took even longer coming home, since I stopped at the dam (and of course got lost, as I seem to always do).
