Coffee mugs with water in TV interviews

Ever wonder why celebrities and other interviewees on TV talk shows drink water out of coffee mugs? I've tried drinking water out of coffee mugs (when I really need to do the dishes) and it kind of weirds me out.

Anyhow! Margaret points out that the reason is probably that regular glasses are reflective. They would pose a lighting problem. And people are talking a lot, and probably nervous, so it's important to have water available.

Also, when people drink out of clear glasses you can sometimes see down their throat, and that's a little gross.

In other news, Kathie and Nick are in town for the weekend. Yay!
