St Espressus Mug now available.

Just like the t-shirt, only smaller.

And you can drink liquid from it.

Or store a brain in it, if you're a Mi-go.

Well, a small one, anyway--maybe a monkey's brain, or a penguin's.

Or use it as a reliquary, if you happen to have a coffee-stained finger of St Espressus.

It's also a bit cheaper than the shirt.

Click the Allen's Brain Store link in the "neurology labs" list to your left, if that sort of thing interests you.

It could also be a hat, I suppose. A sort of handled fez.

Or store chocolate-covered coffee beans in it.

Eat breakfast cereal from it.

Wield it as a blunt object, in case of emergency.

Also, it has no sleeves, so it's not really as much like the shirt as I first imagined.

Oh, so many reasons to wish I actually liked coffee... this being one of them.

I am thankful that getting one of these if you're a chick is not more expensive. :D Maybe I need one for my tea?

I guess it depends on how "fitted" you want it to be. Many women I know buy men's tees for themselves, and seem to manage okay.

But, by all means, buy the mug for your tea, and strike a blow for gender equality!

On the other hand, perhaps we need a Sister Earline Grey as a patron saint of tea-drinkers.

Blessed Kamm O'Mel is not a saint... yet.† She was the daughter of a wealthy Irish sea captain and his Finipina wife:

"...Because of the extreme prejudice in the town where she grew, she spent her early childhood praying and picking flowers in the fields near her parents' apple orchard. Throughout her life she cared for her ailing mother while her father was at sea and was noted for her charity and devotion to pious practices. In 1919, at age 23, she died during an influenza epidemic. (Virgin; June 21st)"

You're going to have to write the prayer.

†Fiction, people. :-D

Oh! The vile punnery!

Love it!

I'll think about a prayer for/from such a one.

I seem to recall singng a tea kettle prayer song as a child about "whistle a prayer in the morning," or was that "whisper"?

Thank you, sir.
