Task 3: Aussies shorten everything, so Melbourne Cup Day is just called “Cup Day” – post a picture of your favorite cup or mug for your daily fix of coffee, tea or chocolate.

 

 

This is a terrible picture, but I wanted to share my favorite mug of all time. This is the mug I have on my desk at work. I brought it home in 2005, so I've been drinking coffee and tea out of it for almost 15 years at this point. Because it's my work mug, it has never been through the dishwasher - it has always been handwashed - which probably accounts for the fact that it looks just as vibrant as the day I bought it at the World of Disney store on the first time that I took my kids to Disneyland back when they were 5 and 9 years old! I I also love it just as much now as I did when I bought it. It's enormous, though, and my coffee usually only fills up about the bottom 3 inches!

 

This particular mug design is long since discontinued, although there are some available on Ebay.
