It is, I find, very frustrating be in the mood for a midnight – or in this case, pre-dawn - snack and find that there’s nothing in the house fitting that description. No chips, no ice-cream, no chocolate, not even any muesli bars or other such, dare I say it, healthy snacks. Just baked beans – a staple in any uni student’s diet. Well, that and two minute noodles, though it’s a wonder how cheap a good steak can be if you’re only buying for one and don’t mind not having anything with it. And, since I’m a big fan of steak, I have little problem with sacrificing some greenery to have one. Another great way to go, I find, is your classic baked – or in this instance, nuked - potato. Punch a couple of holes in one with a fork, bung it in the microwave until it’s either cooked through or exploded. Season with butter and salt to taste and eat skin and all. That way you get all the staple food-groups: carbohydrates, butter and burnt crunchy bits… or wet, soggy bits, since this is a microwave we’re talking about here.

- February Ratings Report Voyager Is Up: The Voyager Nielsen Ratings Information Database finally put up the ratings report for February, one of the sweeps months.

Below are the results of the most recent TrekToday poll:
