Commit log #141: Button Eyes and Agency

I watched Coraline, the movie, and found it lacking compared to the book. I know that the book and the movie of the book can almost never be the same due to the different characteristics of the mediums, but storytelling is storytelling. I don’t have any complaints about Coraline’s new friend; I just have issues with her agency, which is less in the movie compared to the book.

For eating, today is the first day of leftovers from Panaeng Tofu night. I’m making the rice anew each night as I go along, and saving leftovers for weekend or Thursday fried rice. There’s enough left over for a second day of leftovers, which is a bit of a relief, as I have Cats to watch before I need to return it to the video store.

I haven’t been eating my veggies in the evenings (I need to fix that), which makes me glad I have a part-veggie breakfast casserole in the mornings. Breakfasts have been fulfilling to the point where I skip lunch during the day: they consist of a piece of breakfast casserole, two slices of bread with Dairy-Free Herbed Cream Cheez (man, it’s so much better than the Tofutti stuff), and some trail mix (in particular, Duckabush River, which uses dairy-free dark chocolate pieces). The other half of the trail mix is a snack on the commute home.

And so to bed.
