Theme Thursday - Egg

Egg. This is the theme chosen for this week's Theme Thursday.

I have to admit, this is one theme that has had me stumped. I didn't know where to go with this.

So, I am just going to run down a quick list of some eggs that have been of interest to me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First up is one from my childhood. I give you the one and only Mork from Ork, with his eggship:

Mork Egg

I used to love "Mork & Mindy" when I was a kid, watched it every week. Robin Williams was hilarious, making Mork a truly memorable, one-of-a-kind character. I also had quite a crush on the lovely Pam Dawber, who played Mindy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Speaking of Mork, this was one of my favorite toys as a kid:

Mork toy

Played with this all the time, until it was either broken or lost. Ah well. Good memories, however.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Next is this absolutely amazing creation:

Cadbury Creme Egg

The Cadbury Creme Egg consists of a chocolate egg shell filled with a white and yellow creme filling. It is delicious, and not too big to seem like a horrible snack choice. And no, I don't want to know the "Nutrition Facts", thank you very much.

By the way, does anyone else think these things have gotten a lot smaller over the years?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here is a cousin to the creme egg:

Cadbury Mini Eggs

The Cadbury Mini Eggs are a smaller candy, made of a hard sugar shell with a chocolate filling. And they are very tasty. Could eat these little bastards by the bowl full.

Again, keep the nutrition facts to yourself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Finally, I couldn't end this blog without something horror-related, so I give you this:

Alien Egg

This is an alien egg collectible from "Aliens", the 1986 sequel to the hit "Alien". The alien queen has an egg chamber in the movie, and Sigourney Weaver's Ripley manages to destroy most of them.

Nasty little buggers, ain't they?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope you enjoyed this rather bizarre post.

Now I gotta find me some Cadbury eggs!

  19. Alien egg, scarey thing, Mork egg, funny thing, Cadbury Creme egg, scarey thing in microwave, Mini eggs, yummy things.

    I watched the first Alien movie and most of the second one, but that was it. I am too scared to watch horror movies, but some Sci Fi does not scare me, it just depends on if it is just a blood, guts, and gore movie. I hate those. I think the later Alien ones turned into that kind.

    And yes the Cadbury Creme eggs have gotten smaller. I was complaining about that last year. I cannot have them in house or I will hide them and eat them all myself. Not good for my diet, so they are scarey things to have.

    God bless.

    Always wanted to say something smart like up your bum but just smiled.

  26. Tony: Never heard of Space-Hoppers and I haven't ever seen an episode of "The Prisioner". Sorry! Have a great weekend, too!

    Evening Light Writer: I don't know HOW I could have forgotten the Reese's Peanut Butter eggs, cause I love those suckers, too. Dang!!! And I think Mindy is a lovely name. :)
