Several days ago, Bobble Tiki put a plastic bag containing his typical plate lunch - two scoops of white rice, macaroni salad and kalua pork - in the fridge. Kalua pork is cooked in a traditional Hawaiian cooking way in which pig is rubbed with salt, wrapped in ti leaves and cooked in an underground pit or oven. But you know this already. At lunch, the bag was gone. Bobble Tiki compulsively checked the fridge at great lengths to make sure the bag was indeed gone. Many of you claim to suffer from mild OCD, but you haven't seen anything until you've seen a souvenir tiki count in prime numbers to 73 while smacking his wooden lips in 3/8 time, a ritual incurred by unfortunate food-related events. So today, Bobble Tiki finds the bag back inside the fridge, positioned in front as a "silent apology" of sorts, without any note of explanation. Bobble Tiki is a little pensive about consuming macaroni salad that has been missing for several days. But, Margaret Bullock, the curator of "Ink This! Contemporary Print Arts in the Northwest," will lecture on the exhibit during the Lunch & Lecture series, four days before the exhibit opens at the Tacoma Art Museum. Bobble Tiki believes it's worth risking botulism to catch an early view of this awesome exhibit. Bobble Tiki will make another lunch.

"INK THIS! LECTURE," 11 a.m., Tacoma Art Museum, 1701 Pacific Ave., Tacoma, free with admission, 253.272.4258
