How's Your TOE?

Do you have a bog TOE or a little TOE? (TOE being an acronym for Theory of Everything.) Contemporary physicists eagerly pursue TOEs. Philosophers do too. Theologians as well. What about you?

If your TOE tries to account for EVERYTHING in all caps, then we can call it a big TOE. A TOE that tries to account for everything in a particular branch of study--physics, say--without claiming that branch of study includes everything else, we can call a little TOE.

Do you have a TOE? If so, is it big or little?
