a face i miss from college – that of the smiley-faced potato.  he/she usually made a grand appearance at the wellesley tradition of midnight breakfast: a breakfast thrown by the college from 11 pm til 1 am on the night before finals begin, consecrated by the campus scream (a bloodcurdling, campus-wide united scream out of our dorm windows, supposedly to release stress from cramming).  i always got a load of smiley-faced potatoes, amazing sausage links, excellent french toast, and some fruit (“for health”).  the best part was reuniting with friends after a week plus of separation while studying and writing to be goofy and stuff face.  and the coffee.  the coffee ranked highly.  i have since spotted the elusive smiley-faced potatoes in some grocery stores in the frozen food aisle, and have yet to go hunting in memphis.  maybe this will be my weekend project…either way, i miss midnight breakfast, and might have to do this on a once-monthly basis.  this month has been covered, as we ended up at CK’s coffee shop at 1:30 am after the CSN concert.  why does breakfast taste that much better when it is dark outside?  riddle me that.

    Why does breakfast taste so much better when someone else makes it for you? (Even if it means hiking across campus in the middle of the night.)
