Mug: Another variation of the "American Diner Mug", this one was done as a commemorative mug for Neiman Marcus' 90th anniversary in 1997. Bigger than the traditional diner mug, probably 12 ounces, this version isn't as successful a design as the Cabelas mug below, but I got this mainly due to my emotional attachment to Neiman Marcus.
The contrasting exterior and interior glaze colors is a nice designer touch (after all, we are talking about Neiman's!). I have a companion mug to this in a beige exterior and a darker green interior. I usually serve these mugs on Sunday morning while Linden and I read the paper before church.
Coffee: 100% Columbian Supremo yet again.
