Mug of the Day - JON'S JAVA!

This morning's mug…
"Jon's Java"
A gift from Brie for Christmas 2008, and now the name of this blog!
I love this mug, and it's huge!
Drinking Boston's Best brand, House Blend.
It's a simple classic light coffee.  Brie gave it to me for Christmas this year!

Speaking of Christmas, here's some pictures of my holiday at home with the cats, and some other things!

 Tug - contemplating if he should take out the tree     
 Ripper, relaxed with a new catnip mouse
 Here's a gift Brie gave me.  It's a Kermit the Frog stocking holder.  I've wanted this sine I first saw it in 1980 when I was five.  She found one and got it.  I'm flabbergasted and love it!  She's the best

Elmwood also had two screenings of "Animal Behavior" this season…  Thanks to al that came out!  Here's a picture of the Jon and Brie puppets from the nite we had at the awesome Desultory Theatre Club!

Trailer Park - The Muppet Christmas Carol

Get down with your bad self...


There goes the Challenger being chased

By the blue blue meanies on wheels

The vicious traffic squad cars are
After our lone driver
The last American hero
The the electric sitar
The demi-god
The super driver of the golden west!
Two nasty Nazi cars are close behind
The beautiful lone driver
The police cars are getting closer-closer
Closer to our soul hero in his soul mobile yeah baby!
They about to strike, they gonna get him!  Smash!  Rape!
The last beautiful free soul on this planet



But it is written if the evil spirit

Arms the tiger with claws
Brahman provided wings for the dove
Thus spoke the super guru...

"Did you hear that"

To shave or not to shave part 2… Shaved mostly

A couple days ago I lamenting about getting my beard/mustache all covered in coffee as I drank my morning cup.  It was so long with every sip I would be soaked.  Hahaha…  I was just going to trim up the mustache to keep it out of the way.  And I also debated shaving it all off.  Bic it gone.  I didn't end up doing either.   Then last nite I watered the awesome Christmas tree.  Then a couple hours later I went to go to bed, and brush my teeth.   And found pine needles in the beard.  I had no idea they were there.








So this morning as I made coffee I got out the clippers.  
Here the before picture, my hair was almost at a Gallagher stage too!













And here I am now…  
With coffee in hand and so fresh and so clean...







and now off to making puppets…

Mug of the Day

Jim Henson's Muppet*Vision 3D!
Drinking Trader Joe's Gingerbread Coffee

I remember getting this mug well.  It's apparently going to snow tonite and it got me thinking about winter…
It was January 2001.  I had a rough fall and holiday season and needed to get away for a bit.
So without telling anyone I went to Florida.  I  was sick of winter, sick of Connecticut.
By the end of my first day there I was in a rented car from Tampa and on my way to Disney, where I got this (huge) mug.  AFTER finding an apartment.
A month later a was a resident of Florida
A year and a half later, I was back in Connecticut.
I still don't like winter though!

I say it from time to time…  I'm glad I went, be even happier I came back!

Let's meet Ripper! Screenings 12/14 and 12/20!

One of those mornings...

Bad nite last nite…  Crappy morning today…
But it's now after 12, so the morning is over…

Got the glue gun plugged in, two cats sleeping, and good music going.
Today will be better from here…

And we're screening in just under two weeks too!
