    When I was 13, my girl scout troop had a father/daughter day on Valentines day. My dad and I won nearly all the competitions, and one of the gifts I got is a mug that still best describes me "If you want to know why I"m smiling, it's cause I did it, and I had a really good time...

    I Asked Marilyn But She Never Answered Me

    I grew to dislike drinking soda from cans. The soda just doesn't taste as good and fills me up faster than from a plastic bottle or a glass. I found this a strange phenomenon and wrote to Marilyn Vos Savant, whose "Ask Marilyn column I used to read in Sunday's Parade magazine...

    Bean Me Up Scotty.

    My favorite mug is one i received as a Christmas present. It has three Star Trek characters that disappear when you add hot liquid to the cup. The characters have a grayish outline when the mug is cold. Makes a great conversation piece during coffee break as well as a cheap magic...

    And It's All I Drink From

    I got a mug from the polish fair a few years ago, it's from 1996 (I got it in 2006 though), it's intended to be a collectible mug and for beer, because that's what the polish fair (out on long island) is about, drunk polish people, food and lots of stuff to waste your money on...

    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.

    My favorite mug is big. I like mugs to be way bigger than normal. I don't put any more in them I just like them bigger than a cup.

    Mine

     It's a fairly heavy ceramic one. The name of a local coffee place is incised into it, and it's got that blue speckle finish you see on camping coffee pots and so forth.  The finish originally led me to believe it was metal until I picked it up.  I have a plastic...

    It Was The Best Present A Friend Has Ever Given Me.....

    When I saw my Sirius Black mug I knew my day was made. I don't use it for coffee, but I do keep my Harry Potter 3D glasses in there and I keep my Ravenclaw patch right in front of it :)

    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 :)
