Bento Number 2 and a Useful Side-effect of Larping  
Today I basically made a Greek Salad (in a 300ml pudding basin). Since these basins don't look exactly water-tight (or even that securely fastened and I have a bicycle ride followed by a train journey before reaching work) I patted all the ingredients dry on a paper towel before packing (esp. the feta cheese and olives which were stored in liquid). This wasn't nearly as time consuming as it sounds - 300ml isn't a lot and I just sort of emptied the ingredients onto kitchen roll and then rolled them about a bit. I added another 150ml pot of rice. Proper bento involves little refillable sauce containers for dressings which, lacking any real bento accessories and not having had the foresight to save the soy sauce fish from commercial sushi offerings, stumped me somewhat. Then I remembered potion bottles!! in particular some tiny plastic ones. Rumaging in the kit room produced a suitable candidate marked (and this bit is for FnHers only) on the bottle - although mysteriously it had the alchemical sigils for All Heal on the top. So I filled this with lemon juice. Despite a suspicious blue tinge in the potion bottle lid, this was still yellow when I poured it over my lunch. In total that made 450ml of lunch which I suspect is plenty in the normal run of things though I'll see how hungry I am when I get home.

Nope, you've go me. I don't recognise that at all.

Although as I tend to play knightly types I'm a bit out of touch with anything not used for thumping.

It's the physicians' drug, solace. Specifically the one that people keep getting addicted to.

Ah. The Axirian name fooled me.
