When I was growing up in Southern New Mexico, we didn't have a WB station. So instead we got KTLA. Now around this time I was also watching Hamtaro. On KTLA's weather map you could see on the far left of the screen a city called Oxnard, far from Los Angeles-proper. Meanwhile, on Hamtaro there was Hamtaro's big, goofy friend Oxnard. Oxnard, California somehow became a romantic place for me.
Then I visited last year. That place is weird.
