Coffee Cup

When you have your morning cup of coffee or tea, do you have to have a particular cup or do you not care? If so, what is your cup like? What colour is it? Is it large? Where did you get this cup from? My favourite cup is a cup that I used to drink out of when I was little. It belonged to my aunty and I used to drink out of it when I was a kid, about 20 years ago. It has Garfield on it and it says "I Hate Mondays" on it. It just feels nice to drin kout of, it's not too thick around the top and I can relate to it when I get up early in the morning to go to work. Even if it's not necessarily a Monday it still sympathises with me about having to go to work! What's your favourite cup?

I drink my coffee out of a huge mug my kids gave me on my birthday last year.Its hot pink and mint green, and it says Happy bithday how old are you now and it has a big 50 ? on it. It's one of the many goofy things my kids does.

I used to have a Garfield cup when I was a little girl, I love Garfield!! Yes I do have to have a particular cup, even though I have quite a collection of cups now. My cup is reda and pink with blue stars on and it has a picture of a funny girl on and the words Wild Child on it.

if i wake in the morning i like a big cup of coffee so i can have heaps of coffee other wise during the day i'll just have it in a normal sized coffee mug. tea it doesnt matter just normal. at this point of time i dont care what i drink it out of but generally i like a good looking mug i would love to have my own mug with a nice look and picture that i like and choose just for my self. so untill i find one it doesnt matter. i used to have my own mug and i used to drink out of it all the time. its just nice to have something that is just yours.

I don't drink hot beverages in the morning nor drink coffee ever (except a small splash to flavor a milk shake or other ice cream treat) and the only tea I ever drink is iced Roibus, which is called tea, but technically is not. Also I don't do mugs. If people give them to us as gifts, we use them to store pencils or paintbrushes.

i have one of those plastic travel cups i got from a convience store about 10 years ago.i'm not fond of it being plastic,but it's a bigger size cup than normal,which is perfect for my morning coffee,and cat proof as it's plastic.it used to have a store logo on it,but that's long since worn off.

My one and only coffee mug (I have a duplicate) is my 'ARMY' coffee mug. It's a nice cream colour with the black ARMY words. It fits perfectly into my hand, with a nicely rounded shape. It holds exactly the right amount of coffee. And, my daughter-in-law bought it for me in the PX at Fort Stewart.

I hate to drink my tea if it's not in my own "Christmas" mug, I don't know why.

I have a mug with a picture of a Monty Python gumby and the words 'My brain hurts'... and no-one else better touch it! If I'm not well and have hot lemon drink or some medicine that has to be diluted I use my 'Dolly's bedtime' mug which has a Lucy Atwell type picture on. I was given that one with an Easter Egg in over 40 years ago.

My partner and I both have our own cups for coffee first thing, and I tend to just rinse them then & use them for drinks throughout the day. His is a blue paisley patterned one that he's had for years, and mine features a bunny & came with a chocolate egg in it as a present to my son last Easter. I filched it, and he doesn't seem to mind :-) I actually have a really special mug, which is brown and marked Christmas 1981. I love it just because it's so old & I find it quite unbelievable that I've managed to keep it intact for so long. My nerves are breaking now though, so I don't use it any more!!

Hi coffeeshot! Wow, you're using a 20 year old cup? That is so sentimental of you dear and so nice to know that it belongs to your aunt. You must love her so much. I really don't have any cup preference for my coffee. I just use any cup in my kitchen. haha.. Take Care and Happy Mylotting!

Yes, my favorite cup is a large cup with the Dear God series on it. It the little girl crying and saying "Dear God, I think I've broken my heart. Can you fix it?" I got it in a time that our family was going through some very tough times. It seemed we were being attacked from every direction by satan. I love drinking my coffee from it or my green tea and sitting and thinking how God got us through those times. It was only Him that got us through otherwise, we would have just thrown out hands up and given up. I will drink out of any cup but I tend to pick a larger one and if that one is near I will choose it every time. I also have two cups that my sons made in Vacation Bible School one year when they were young. They painted them and then the teacher put them in a kiln and finished them. They are very special to me too. Well, I guess I have more than one favorite but my "bestest" favorite is the Dear God series.

My favoite cup is a really big gold colored pottery cup. I bought it because it was big and I like a BIG cup of coffee in the morning - and I don't have to jump up and refill it. So that is my favorite one to use. My favorite one that I like has artwork by Monet on it. I really like that one. I just don't use its often.

I definately have MY coffee cup. It is a cup from Disney world I bought it back in 1998 when I took my girls there for a family vacation. It is quite beat up and the pictures are wearing off but it will continue to remind me of a great time my kids and I had together.

I am a coffee buff and I have a mug which could accommodate 2 cups. The cup was a souvenir I bought from an out-of-town travel. I could have coffee any time of the day but of course I especially like it in the morning.
