Lunch in a Box

There is a special place in my heart for those who take mundane tasks and imbue them with art...Gap workers who turn folding T-shirts into intricate choreography...auto body workers who using only Bondo and belt sanders create precise and complex shapes...janitors who guide a 200-pound floor polisher down a hallway like Astaire guiding Rogers.

Add to that list Biggie, the creator of the website Lunch In A Box, a website devoted to one woman's exploration of the Bento Box, those Japanese-based meals consisting of several small items artistically arranged in an easy-to-carry container.

Flip through several days worth of the site's entries (complete with yummy pictures) and see if you don't start yearning for more than your regular PB&J in a paper bag.
