My mug. My mug. My lovely pony mug. *ahem*.
This was a gift from a former co-worker for one of those much dreaded office secret santa events. I have been assured that creating this gift broke his Amazon recommendations for a while. Ah well.
The reason this mug deserves mention (other than being awesome, that is), is that it’s been a great conversation starter at my new place of work. I only recently moved jobs, to a very large company. Navigating ‘new girl in the office-itis’ can be scary territory. This mug has started more conversations with people I don’t know than any innocuous comment about the weather could.
So, shout out here – cheers, Mr Secret Santa! You gave me a great networking tool, as well as a sensibly sized receptacle to power my Caffiene Driven Development.
