Gimme a cup of coffee!

One of the best things about having Foxtel (and no, it's not the Food Channel - although that is pretty damn cool), is that my favourite shows, including The Simpsons, Family Guy and Futurama, are screened and repeated almost constantly. (Animation Domination on Fox 8 during the Olympics was awesome; am I right or am I right?)

My absolute favourite program at the moment is Law and Order: SVU. I've recently started to watch this one compulsively, and noticed that these Greek-style takeaway coffee cups seem to appear in every episode. It was only a couple of weeks ago, however, that I realised where I'd seen them before. (Sadly, it wasn't in New York - that will have to be a future trip!) It was in this post on my friend Lisa's blog. La Lovely Lisa has a ceramic version from which she drinks her morning cappuccino. A-ha! As soon as I made the connection, I had to have one for myself, and promptly ordered myself one from Perth store, The Good Store. The only difficulty I had with the website was that I couldn't find any shipping information - they're "a real bricks & mortar shop", and I get the feeling the online shopping is a small part of their overall business. Anyway, a quick email to their very friendly owner solved the mystery, and my fabulous cup arrived in less than a week via Australia Post, as promised. I love it!

As I hardly have coffee at home anymore, I tend to drink chamomile tea out of my beloved cup, but for the echt experience, I think that percolator coffee with sugar and cream is the way to go. I can't remember exactly what I was drinking when I took the above photo, but I see that I had them with some of those tasty malted oat and raisin biscuits I made.
