    1978 My First Mug

    My Favorite Mug

    Is a metal travel mug with no handle that holds 20 oz. It doesn't leak and is 100% perfect. I hate to be without it and take it almost everywhere.

    Far Side

    It has a picture of a guy going to the "Midvale School for the Gifted" and he has to open a door. The sign on the door says "PULL" in giant letters and he's pushing the door... classic. Gifted. Ha. I love the Far Side.   ~ChunChun^_^

    Silly, I Guess

    I've got a lot of mugs but my favorite is just a blue-gray stoneware one I found at Wal-mart.  I don't know why I like it so much, it's nothing special.  Maybe it's the shape, or color...I dunno.  I just like it :)

    Drama Queen

    That's what my favourite mug says on it. My aunt bought it for me last Christmas but she doesn't mean it as in being a drama queen. She said it's because of me performing my amateur dramatics.

    It's this big mug. It's a bit colorful,

    might not be the most tasteful. Google "Indiska Tokyo", it's the mug with black handle.

    Three

    I have three favorites, but one of them barely qualifies. The first qualifies on size alone. It takes two pots of coffee to fill completely. The second, which doesn't really hold any liquid, was made by one of the kids I tutored when he was in third grade. The third was my...

    Right Now It's Manolo

    It's a little white mug with a golden rim and a soft green color on the inside. On the outside, there's a beautiful study of a Boston Terrier, head and shoulders, and on the reverse side, a brief historical study of the breed's evolvement. That's my sweetheart Bonnie...it helps...

    And a New One!

     The Boy got me a new coffee cup for Xmas. I now have my first Beatles coffee cup.  The design is the Hard Day's Night photostrip layout, but in oranges and yellows instead of red and blue. I like it.
