Mug: I've over used the word "ubiquitous" in this series. But this thing, this cardboard and plastic parasite of our culture, meets the definition. I see them everywhere, attached to the hands of all kinds of people. The shot was taken in the Starbucks at Clay and Smith streets in Houston, Texas. I even saw ceramic and insulated plastic versions of the Vente cup ($12.99 each), so you can have that throw-away chic look in a permanent cup.
Coffee: Starbucks Breakfast Blend. I can not report anything good about the coffee, or the Verona I had my travel mug filled with. Linden and I both think it's the water (a negative spin on the old Olympia Brewing Company motto).
