The new job is at an academic research lab so they don’t have things I’m used to at tech companies like disposable or communal coffee cups or whatever so I’m bringing my own https://queer.party/media/oLpLrqWwDV635n7Kpb0
I bought this coffee cup during GDC 2017, because I was staying in a shitty hotel that didn't have coffee/tea/whatever and I got a very bad cold and so I went to a discount store to buy stuff for making tea in my room and most of the mugs were intended for religious grandmas but this one had the sassy owl (it's metallic gold!) and I figured if I was gonna buy a discount store mug it might as well be one that makes me smile.
This is my absolute favorite mug. I bought it at a Daiso (Japanese dollar store) but the rest of the story makes me sad so I won’t share it tonight. https://queer.party/media/dgH9_NM_0FS0Q7218HI https://queer.party/media/mZLZcreqxoURiQKM_8g https://queer.party/media/mP21HfIEz1wCj1f6kmo https://queer.party/media/UobJ_vM8B8Wm1zXxs00
@fluffy I can completely see why this would be your favorite mug!!! omg it's amazing
I am currently on a mug-buying moratorium for having too many mugs so I like to live vicariously through other people's acquisitions so thank you for sharing your photos 💛
@InspectorCaracal yeah I try not to buy more but I keep ending up with them
the one I drink out of the most is a nice glass mug with a silkscreened caffeine molecule on it, which a coworker gave me as a gift once (ironically I can't tolerate caffeine so that's the one thing that basically never goes in it)
