So I decided to start this blog like how I usually decide to do most things: on a lark. And I spent a good part of the past week trying to come up with an awesome title for it. I was still thinking about it and typing it down on my phone while getting my hair cut today (much to the annoyance of my barber).
The combinations I came up with:
coffeeandeggs.wordpress.com (some food blog not updated since 2009)
ramenandeggs.wordpress.com (available but too Asian)
crackedegg.wordpress.com (one of those one-post “Hello World!” entries)
scrambledeggs.wordpress.com (deleted by the owner – seriously, why would you delete a blog with such an awesome name)
sunnysideup.wordpress.com (an artsy egg blog not updated since 2009)
happyegg.wordpress.com (Another one of those one-post “Hello World!” entries.. seriously, what is it with these guys!)
explodingegg.wordpress.com (I actually really wanted this one, because I was almost killed by one. Shoutout to my friend Amber! But that’s another story… and yeah, it was already taken)
And finally.. this. Yes, you can tell I really like eggs. I like eggs cause they’re easy. And tasty. And they go with everything. And you can make them in all sorts of different styles. They’re fragile, easily cracked, and sometimes smelly. Sometimes, there might be a chick in them. Kind of like life, if you think about it. (Okay, I admit I stretched that analogy just a little bit)
But most importantly, I have ’em to start my day off. They’re my favoritest breakfast in the world. In Singapore, where I live, we have this breakfast dish comprising of two hardboiled eggs, toast, and coffee. The eggs are served runny on a small plate, with soya sauce and pepper. They kind of look like this:
I know, it looks kinda gross but it’s delicious as hell. Whenever I have it, it’s like I’m starting the day off on a positive (and tasty) note. And that’s really the whole point, because starting is the most important thing to do. I could spend weeks thinking about that perfect name for my blog, or I could start with my first post and see where that takes me.
And now I have.
