Why Feganegg

When I was just a little bitty boy on holidays at my Granny’s house in Aghagallon, Northern Ireland she used to cook the most amazing frys in the mornings. Proper Ulster frys, Bacon, Sausages, Vegetable Roll, Soda Farls, Potato Bread and Fried Eggs. I was a greedy beggar and used to live by the rule of 2’s & 3’s, being 2 of everything or 3 of everything. And although the frys were cooked to perfection the star of the show was always the Fegan egg. You take 1 very runny fried egg, add HP sauce (other sauces are available but don’t fool yourself it has to be HP) and then use your knife an fork to cut, slash and mash it to oblivion. It looks terrible and everyone who sees you do it will be disgusted but it tastes divine and no fry is complete without one. Hopefully now you’ve read this it will ignite a tiny spark of curiosity somewhere deep in your mind, then one day when you are alone with a fried egg and no one is watching you will give it a go. When you do you will realise that an empty hole in your life, which you never new was there, has now been filled.

What’s that got to do with a blog?

Well I could say something like that the fundamental essence of this blog is the combination of items that wouldn’t normally fit but somehow come together to form something far more wonderful than the sum of its parts, but I’d be talking through my arse. The truth is when I first met Sinead she found the whole feganegg thing a combination of disgusting and cute, so started calling me feganegg. Now we are married with two beautiful daughters the four of us have now become the feganeggs. And I’m very proud to say one of my daughters has taken up the family tradition. So what’s likely to be found here?

D&D – Kinda

I love playing Dungeons and Dragons type role-playing game. Yes, I’m a geek but if you’re reading this then you probably are too. At the moment it’s mainly Old School type games but it could be anything in this space.

SUP Boarding

I had a coffee with Corkman and it screwed my life up. Since then I actually go out and do stuff. We took on a SUP Boarding challenge in 2020 to paddle the River Bann (in 2019 the challenge was being able to stand up on one). Since then I’ve fallen in love with it and we’ve got something big planned for 2021.

Balance

Like most people, I struggle with balance but I’m trying to do better. I don’t even know how this will fit in but we’ll see.

Leveling up

I saw the concept years ago, I think it was Nerd Fitness of leveling up. I really liked it but couldn’t really relate as I wasn’t a big gamer at the time. Now I’ve found D&d I really like the idea of gamifying my journey so I’m going to see if I can have a little fun with this.
