What things do you add to your oatmeal to make it interesting?

I love oatmeal and I eat it almost every morning, but I usually just add some local maple syrup. I'd love to hear about some of your weird but terrific oatmeal concoctions so that I can mix it up a bit!
In the fall I add a tablespoon of canned pumpkin, a tablespoon of pecans, a sprinkle of clove, cinnamon, and ginger--and a little honey or stevia for some sweetness.
I sometimes add honey and pb or hiney and sunflower seed butter from TJs--yum.
I also love cooking it for a minute and then stirring in an egg and cooking it for another 30 seconds. This makes the oatmeal so creamy---I LOVE it. I got that recommendation of chowhound last fall. I then add cinnamon or whatever else.
I also like coconut oil in my oatmeal.
Sometimes I throw in ground flax seeds if I have them.
mmm...I eat it everyday too. Fave additions (AFTER cooked) are a bit of peanut butter, walnuts, dried cranberries and flax meal. I often add chocolate whey protein powder too, esp. if i'm working out that day. However the oatmeal needs to be warm, not hot, b/f making that addition in order to mix well.
