Monday Photo Shoot

Fresh when it gets here from Julie Barrett
Monday, September 10, 2007

The assignment: Take a picture of one or more interesting coffee mugs you might have. Because it's my experience that people have coffee mugs with interesting stories behind them. At least, I do.

This was a tough choice. I ended up with my set of British Comedy mugs, courtesy of our local public TV station:

Up Your Mugs!

These aren't in the best shape (and it isn't the best picture, sorry), but you can probably tell that these are the kind that change when hot liquid is added:

Expose Your Mugs!

The one on the right is for the station's now-defunct British Comedy Club. As part of our contribution to the station we got the mug and a T-shirt. Well, we joined for three years, so we have multiple goodies. The second mug sits in the living room:


We found that telly at a garage sale for $20. It needs a few parts, but we hope we'll be able to get it to work someday. The object sitting on the right top of the box is a penguin-shaped bottle of cologne. So, what's a penguin doing on the television, then? Standing!
