An inquiry concerning the cooking and preservation of rice.

What's the best way to keep rice (primarily brown rice, although I could see other grains being used in the future) in the refrigerator overnight?

I want to start bringing lunch to work rather than burning $8-12 a day on some decidedly uninspired and usually unhealthy food.
The projected staple food would be brown rice with meat or fish. The few times that I have tried this, though, I've found that the rice I've made the night before is kind of dry, chewy and not very appetizing.
What's the best way to prepare rice for a brown-bag lunch and maintain decent texture and overall quality. Let's assume that preparing it in the morning while I'm running around and getting ready for work is not an option. The ideal is to prepare the whole shebang the night before and be able to grab it from the fridge on the way out the door.
Any tips or suggestions, factors I may have overlooked, etc. would be welcome.
Many thanks in advance.
