So I got back to Keble today.  Unpacked, set up my snazzy new webcam, plugged in my Skype phone and tried (and failed) to make my new posters stick to the the freshly-painted walls of my room.  This was all done by about 5pm.  "Great!" I think, "Loads of time to mess around with my new technology and get a bit of collections revision done before dinner at 7pm!".  At 6.20pm, the fire alarm goes off, so I trundle downstairs, only for the alarm to switch itself back off again and for me to bump into Luke C.  
"Are you going to dinner?" I ask him, hoping that I can find someone to sit next to. 
"No...forgot to book" comes the reply.  "And besides, it's too late to go now, even if I had booked."
"No it's not...it's only just gone 6pm."
"It's 7.20."
"No it's not"
"Umm....Yes it is...look at my watch.  And if you need further evidence, then the Simpsons has just started on Sky in the JCR, and that's on at 7pm every night."
"Bollocks."
*Goes back to room and eats one of the pot noodles she bought in preparation for essay crises or moments of dinner-missing stupidity, not having expected it to have been on the first night back.*

I love my wonderful time-management skills.  

...What worries me is how I managed to lose an entire hour without noticing.

What is it about uni that makes pot noodles taste good?? I used to eat about one a year when I wanted serious junk, and now I find myself thinking "Hmm....a snack...I'll have a pot noodle!"

I have to say that I was bitterly underwhelmed by my first taste of Pot Noodle...I thought that something that was a national institution would be delectable, but no such luck :(
I may not be totally adept at cooking them however. I shall try again in a week or so and see if I can perfect the art.

What flavour did you have? Because some of them are gross.

Chinese sweet and sour. But it was all runny - the water wasnt soaked up into the noodles properly...was that meant to happen?

Well, for a start, try the chicken and mushroom ones. Don't expect them to taste of chicken or mushroom, or even to have either of these things in them. Also, the trick is (as taught to me by my legend of a dad) is to pour the water up to the line really fast, or it all soaks in and you put in too much. They do end up in a kind of sauce no matter what though. If you make it right you can dink the sauce like soup. Not that you'd want to because, you know, it's noodle sauce. But you COULD if you were realllly hungry.

Just to let you know that I've had some rather more successful pot-thingies since that episode. Not so much pot noodles, but pot pasta, pot rice and pot soup (well, cupa soup, but similar concept) and all have been rather nice. I have yet to re-attempt Pot noodle, although I am now in the possession of some rival brands, so they may be more of a success. I'll let you know.
