Looking at Flickr's bento boxes group
, with its thousands upon thousands of photos of neatly arranged, self-packed and often incredibly cute lunches, has got to be one of my favorite ways to start the week. Even the dreariest Monday is somehow easier to face when you know there are people in the world making crabs out of hotdogs
and Ms Pacman
out of egg and seaweed.
(The Totoro dust mote-shaped onigiri in the photo at right almost make me wish I had to go into an office every day, just so I'd have an excuse to make them!)
