Tom Robbins is no substitute for TV

We don't know if Bree Davis was finally able to finish that Tom Robbins book after she told television that it was over, that they'd broken up, and she gave her TV to her mother.

But we do know that Lara doesn't think Robbins is a fitting substitute:

I only read half of "Even Cowgirls Get The Blues" in 11th grade, so I have no real authority on the subject, but if anyone tells me their favorite author is Tom Robbins, it's a total eye roller, I'm gonna pre-judge you so hard -- which I know is lame and unfair, but I can't help it. He seems to be one of those authors that only a certain type of person enjoys. I can't put my finger on exactly what type of person that is, but as a rule, they annoy the shit out of me.

Sounds like not only cowgirls get the blues...
