So it’s finals week, which is usually pretty close to the apocalypse, but I had most of my big papers due the week before Thanksgiving so I am sliding into home from about 3/4 of the way out, which is to say I probably won’t make it. Luckily for everyone, the dining halls are now serving 4 meals a day: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Middnight Breakfast—11pm-1am my dorm that happens to be attached to a dining hall. So if, for example, I wanted to wear shorts and flip-flops and not go outside at all because it snowed 6 inches last night and eat for free in the dining hall 14 out of 24 hours of the day, I could.
The meal is standard breakfast fare: chocolate-chip pancakes, eggs, make-your-own-waffles, sausage, fried-potato-whatevers, hot cooked water, ice cream, and according to the menu “homemade pastries.” So even though WebMD is telling me that eating before bed will make my hips fat, you can catch me crushing tater-tots and apple juice at 12:45am. Oh, also ridiculous things happen at Middnight breakfast, but don’t take my word for it: YouTube.
