In sweden we don't go hunting for chocolate eggs, instead we go looking for a single egg filled with candies. They sell these giant undecorated paper eggs at the craft store, so I immediately wanted to do something more fun than to buy the normal green-with-chickens or green-with-hares things.

Hence, the words of power egg!

The boyfriend's name is quite short, so he only gets two words of power, but there's all this chocolate and cookies and muffins for him to comfort himself with.

Get it? Roll Eyes

Ok, I'll tell you.

It's from the game Skyrim, which we both play, though I'm playing it without any main story (or dragons) and he's beaten the main story and gone on to find more interesting storylines in the game, like the dark brotherhood etc... Cheesy So, in the game, there's all these words of powers that you find carved into great stone walls, as a sort of extra arsenal of spells, to heavily simplify it.

The words here are "Ah", meaning hunter, and "Mir", meaning allegiance. Since the words "animal allegiance" makes animals come fight for you, I guess this would make hunters come fight for you? Roll Eyes

The letters making up the words are Ah, M and Ir, which should make a good euphonic spelling of "Amir". (I was tempted to use the normal A and the double I instead, but then I found the actual words of power, and that was just... better Cheesy )

So, what do you think?

"That's my lab table and this is my work-stool. And over there is my intergalactic spaceship! And here's where I keep assorted lengths of wire."

...oh, if it wasn't clear, I'm rarely completely serious. Smiley

What a marvellous idea! How brilliant!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

This is really cool, even though I have no idea about any of the Skyrim stuff Cheesy  I have to say the idea of one giant egg is very clever....we used to find those tiny eggs for many months after Easter when my kids were small (a very long time ago).  They would flip out for a personalized Skyrim egg these days!
