June Rêveuse

Summertime, and the living is…all about editing.  Yup, it’s DEADLINE WEEK!  Again!  It seems like I have a lot of those…


Anyway, Happy RRFP Day.  (Not sure what that is?  Click here.)


It’s summer, so I’m pretty much in a ponytail, no make-up, and extremely casual clothes every day.  Today was a white t-shirt, a black skirt, black sandals, and these goofy red tassel earrings that have probably seen their last Rêveuse Day.  But I need caffeine to meet my deadline, so I’ve also got my new Jack Skellington mug!

And why would you need a new one? you might be asking. Your old one was perfectly awesome in every way.


A fair question, and yes, you are correct.  But sadly, my old Jack Skellington mug met an untimely end when my Dear Husband was sweeping the floor in the kitchen and accidentally knocked it off the shelf.  (Don’t get me wrong — I love and appreciate that he was sweeping the floor.)


I scoured the Interwebz trying to find a replacement, but alas, that mug is no longer available anywhere.  So I got this one instead.  Not the same shape, but also very cool, and it has gray and black stripes on the inside, which is nice.  The best part, though?  This mug is approximately the size of my face!  It holds a wakeful 21 ounces!  That’s a delightful lot of chai tea, my friends.  So I’m going with it.
And as an extra little bonus for you Night Circus fans, I wanted to share this with you, which I recently came across via Erin Morgenstern’s Twitter feed.  (It’s a deleted scene from the book.  You are welcome.)

Until tomorrow…

  1. Whenever I see an awesome mug like that, I think of Mike Myers in “So I Married an Axe Murderer” — “Excuse me, I thought I ordered the ‘Large’?”

    I have a huge one from the Newseum in Washington, D.C. that says “I love the smell of newsprint in the morning.”


    1. Oh, that’s hilarious! I loved that movie.

      I also love really large mugs. I don’t actually drink coffee, but I’m a big fan of tea, especially when I need a jolt of caffeine. Goofy mugs the size of my face are just awesome. On the other end of the spectrum, though, I’m also quite partial to very delicate demitasse cups. I have a gorgeous set I inherited from my grandmother that I like to serve drinking cocoa in. Turkish or Arabic coffee works well in them, too, but I don’t drink that.


      1. There are a lot of paint-your-own-pottery places here, and it’s always fun to go in and paint one with the kids. The last one I made was one of those Campbell’s Cup-o-chino types, and I put smiling lips on one side and smiling lips with fangs on the other. I plan to use it at school.
