A little humor and fun is a good way to lighten the mood right now, right? And one thing that just might bring a smile to your face is those seagulls from Finding Nemo. The ones who are continually sitting there going “Mine! Mine! Mine!” It’s a silly little gag in the movie but it cracked us up the first time we watched it, and has become a familiar joke with Disney fans.
Those seagulls are popular enough that they even have some of their own merchandise! I’ve seen some items over at The Seas with Nemo and Friends in Epcot, and I actually got this mug in a subscription box (and any subscription box that sends me a mug is a win in my book!).
One of the things I really appreciate about this mug is that there are lots of little details and seagulls everywhere. Of course they’re all around the outside of the mug, but I love that they are up and down the handle as well. And when you finish your coffee, there’s a surprise – a seagull at the bottom of the mug!
What’s in my mug: I’ve got some “Hobo Ed” coffee from Steel City Coffeehouse! This is a local place and I’m often there on Sunday mornings normally, as I have a running group which goes for a run and then gets breakfast/coffee here. It’s been hard not having these regular meetings, but they are doing limited takeout on the weekends including bagged coffee so I picked up a few to still have some of that local coffee at home!
What I’m currently reading: I’m actually reading a few things right now – I’m reading through a book for work to plan a middle school book discussion, and I’m listening to an audiobook. But my physical “for fun” book I’m reading right now is Train Smart: Run Forever. I want to learn more about running and doing what’s right for my body, and I’d heard good things about this one. I will say that I didn’t realize it’s kind of targeted at an older crowd. Much of the way it’s written is for those 50+ who can’t run the way they used to and have to adapt/deal with that. I think there’s a lot of great information in it anyway and it’s never too early to start applying lifelong running skills, but at age 32 I find the tone doesn’t feel like it’s quite directed to me personally.
What mug are you using right now? And what are you currently reading?
