As I’ve mentioned before, and as the above title probably makes rather clear, I collect coffee mugs. I have a TON. My apartment has a double cupboard completely dedicated to coffee mugs, almost all of which are mine, and we’re starting to run out of room. In fact, I think I may have a problem.
Nah, it’s not a problem. I love coffee and drink it on the daily, so why not invest in super awesome coffee receptacles? They’re practical, and can totally function as are pieces too in a lot of ways.
So, I’ve decided that once or twice a week, I’ll pick a mug to feature here, along with a description of the beverage and/or meal I had at the time, and of course the story behind that given mug. They will be appearing in no particular order other than that in which I use them. This way I might actually find out exactly how many I have now anyway!
So, without further ado, I present you Coffee Mug #1: Melody Malone!
As many of you probably know, this fantastic mug is an homage one of my favorite Doctor Who characters, River Song, and her message to the doctor via a private eye who-dun-it paperback. I saw it online and shared it on my Facebook, and ended up getting it as a gift from my father, who lives in California. It was a great surprise! This morning I used it for my coffee (treated with a little almond milk and tiny touch of sugar) to go with the pancakes my roommate made for breakfast; she said they had too much vanilla, but I thought they were delicious.
