Not Just My Name

   My name in German, when translated is: 

  1. The egg cell is the female haploid reproductive cell in oogamous organisms.  

    My name means egg. It's pretty rad.  For something my dad made up or at least I think he did, it's pretty amazing.  The fact is that I love eggs.  I love them any way you cook them, I will pretty much eat them.  My favorite Saturday morning treat my bother and I loved to make was  instant ramen with egg cooked into it.  Sometime we would boil the egg right into the 2 cups of boiling water, sous vide style before it was ever in style.  Then consume while watching Marsupilami. Yeah, I went there.

    Eggs in my house are consumed every morning with toast if we are lazy and with potatoes or  Tapsilog, because I am that Filipino.  I have an egg tattoo that has been parked on my arm for over 5 years.  My favorite way to eat them is over easy.   When asked, "which came first, the chicken or the egg?" My answer, always, is egg. Why, because God wanted to create something tasty from start to finish.
