James Proclaims (4)

The Force is not particularly strong with me today. Or indeed any day, because obviously ‘The Force’ is entirely made up.

And much as I would love to believe I could have the powers of a Jedi, at the moment I would settle for the powers of a human. But I feel I’m lacking in that regard today too.

So while there are still more than enough films and TV shows for me to carry on with my mission to write about Star Wars for many more days to come, and frankly I’ve watched a lot of this stuff already so I’m definitely going to write about it whether or not anyone wants to read it, I’m not feeling like I can do justice to the movie I was going to write about today.

And if I don’t do it justice then no-one else will as it comes very much from the arena of ‘lesser known’ and ‘lesser beloved’ Star Wars films.

Instead, today, I thought I’d share some images of the various Star Wars mugs I own.

I should add, that I did not buy a single one of these. They were all gifts.

And I do own quite a few ‘novelty mugs’. Probably more Star Wars than anything else but it’s certainly not the only theme in my kitchen cupboards.

So, without further ado, and because I’m firmly of the view that ‘underwhelming blog content’ is better than ‘no blog content’, here are my Star Wars mugs:

The first one I owned, bought for me by my good wife.


From a colleague, when he left the organisation we both worked for. I was his boss and he wanted to say thanks. I’m not entirely sure what I did that merited thanks but I’m not one to turn down a Star Wars mug because I didn’t deserve it.


From my parents for Christmas when I was a fully grown adult, even though I’ve loved Star Wars my entire life. Better late than never…


From another former colleague who wanted to say thanks for something. I must be a great person to work with…


Another from a colleague but this was because I achieved the landmark age of 40.


And not a mug, but a coaster. But it did come with a matching mug, which sadly did not survive my clumsiness. Also from a colleague. This time as a Christmas present I believe…


And those are all the Star Wars mugs I own.

Tune in tomorrow when I’ll endeavour to write about an actual film. But in all honesty, the mugs might turn out to have been a better subject for a blog post.

  1. I had a great star wars mug that I got when I went to Universal Studios in California. It was all sparkly… unfortunately, I didn’t realize that it wasn’t microwave safe. It went into the microwave once too often, and came out leaking like a big leaky thing. The force definitely wasn’t with that one.

    PS Love ‘may the froth be with you’… lol

    1. The loss of a Star Wars mug is always hard to take so I sympathise. I was sad to see the ‘may the froth be with you’ mug in pieces. But I’ll always have coaster to help me remember the good times…
