How many ways can you cook an egg? Looking for methods, not recipes.

Looking for how many answers you can give to the question, "How do you want your eggs?"
I've tried googling 'how many ways to cook an egg' and whatnot, but have failed to discover a comprehensive collection. I've been able to assemble a short list, but I feel like there should be more. I'm wondering... what am I forgetting? And are any of these "wrong?"
So far I have: scrambled, baked, fried, omelette, puffy omelette, over easy, over medium, over hard, sunny side up, deviled, poached, custard (ed?), souffled, basted, medium boiled, soft boiled, hard boiled, coddled, baked, dropped, steam-basted, pickled.
Some of these might not be right, either. Or doubles. And I'm not sure if something like 'mayonnaise' or 'timbale' counts as a method.
It can be really esoteric. Thanks.
