Late, But Still HOT

 So after my FAIL on following my calendar...  I had really great news... Well... if by GREAT, I mean NOT ALONE IN MY DISORGANIZATION.  Erica, one of the OWNERS of the blog hosting, ALSO thought it was Friday. *HUGS ERICA*

Okay...  so being me... a true believer of MORE IS MORE *cough* I've got not just my mug shot, but a SERIES!!!
 THIS... is the mug I typically use at home... placed strategically by my happy computer...

And also next to the COMPARISON as evidence WHY this is my mug of choice. Hubby doesn't seem to MIND refilling often. I prefer a nice satisfactory dosing when I take my caffeine.
 At WORK, I take that to the next level, because our supplies are actually in an office down the hall (I work in a satellite building from the hospital, but there are actually THREE offices belonging to our department.  Did I mention the temperature regulation in my building SUCKS? It is connected to the nursing school, and I think they don't teach nursing students how to shut doors... or something. The hallway is often FREEZING this time of year.)

Anyway... it is Michigan Radio for coffee in the am and UROP (Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program--a cup earned for 'speaking' at something) for tea in the afternoon.
 But I also have some sentimental mugs (at work)  [Note:  HWMNBMOTI doesn't like anything 'non-matching' so anything I love that is UNIQUE has made its way to work so it doesn't get chucked for offending his sense of order)

The Tami cup is from my grandparents and glazed with ASH from Mt. St. Helens. The OTHER one I got from Portland State when I turned in my thesis.
THIS one, I got from Tara when I went to the UK... because I'm such a pussycat...
Erm... or something like that *shifty*

(then again we brought her a whip, handcuffs and her choice of confectionery penises)

So those are my mug shots! HA!

And I'm posting TONIGHT so I am technically on the right day, but will leave it through Friday...

I hope you all have a great weekend!

I still have my Bagpuss mug. :-) And I'd forgotten about the penises-on-sticks... though I've referenced the whip and cuffs lately... ;-)

(what happened to things in parentheses being invisible and PRIVATE??!!) haha

Love the multi-purpose mugs! My work mug is awesome, too, twice the size of anyone else's. That's what happens when they put me in the classroom FARTHEST away from the lounge!

Thanks for playing along! It was fun!

We don't have mugs. We drink from hollowed out bamboo sealed with chewed dried beetle nut. It gives our cappuccino a woody flavour.

Have a nice day, Boonie

OMG. WHAT A BRILLIANT COLLECTION! I am actually crushing on all of them *wants* Especially the work ones! I have a thing for those sort of mugs....

Cold As Heaven said...

That's a big and great collection mugs.

I used to have a favorite mug, a white porcelain mug, with Schipol Restaurants in blue print. I stole it by accident on Schipol Airport many years ago. Now I'm drinking coffee from a paper cup at work, because stole my mug. I guess I got what I deserved >:D

Hart Johnson said...

Ann-so what are you saying? *snort*

VR-YES--Glasgow, on that brick walking part... normal looking candy story has a BACK ROOM. looked to me like they specialized in bachelor and 'hen' parties (hen meaning bachelorette, of course)

Elizabeth-me too! SIZE MATTERS!

Talli *snicker*

Hart Johnson said...

HA! SY, you snuck in there on me! Yes... I'm pretty sentimental... wish the hubby was more tolerant of that...

Tundiel said...

Ha! Man, those chocolate penises were hysterical (and soft and squidgy, now that I think about it)! I'm tickled pink that the kitty mug went down so well. One of the most inspired gifts that I have ever bought I think. :p

Oh, I love the kitty one!!!

I love the Sex Kitten mug. I collect mugs too.

DCAllen said...

I have a very large Starbucks mug collection and very strange rituals that go along with them. Mugs from cities I like make me write better. Singapore, Edinburgh, Nashville and NYC.

M Pax said...

Fab! Love the cat mug.

Abby Minard said...

Aw, cute mugs! You use a lot of them! I like that they all have a special meaning. Ashes from Mt St Helens is awesome!

Carol Kilgore said...

These are all so cool. You have quite a collection. I learned about this blogfest the other day, but haven't had time to do anything about it. Have a great weekend.

Rayna M. Iyer said...

I love the Tami mug, and like the fact that it has volcano ash on it.
Completely missed this blogfest- shows how badly I have fallen off the map!
