My boss is funny.

In case you haven't heard, since I usually try not to bother people with my problems, I have mono. My boss came by to drop off some software for me today and by the time I opened the door to greet him, he had already retreated back to the street, leaving my software at the door and successfully avoiding disease. The scene looked something like this:

No mono for him. He's a pretty funny guy, but even when the joke was over he still wouldn't come more than halfway up the stairs to talk to me. I considered running up and pretending to sneeze on his face or perhaps faking a seizure, but I thought that might be taking the joke too far.

Please share your secrets. Image secrets, that is. What search engine do you use to find your relevant and funny pictures? For example, what engine, and what query did you use to find that door/package image? And, how do you animate something like that?

That's actually a picture of my front walk, so I didn't have to search for nuthin', I just snapped it with my camera. And then I found an old picture of my boss and used photoshop and imageready to animate it. It honestly only took a couple seconds. No real secrets there.

No secret. Dan's just a genius.

Dude, don't breath north. I don't wanna get mono either. I don't have any timebank to take the days off.

I taught my wife how to blog and gave her my OPML file from work so she could get all the blogs I subscribe to as a place to start. So, yesterday, she says "How do you know Dan from PlanetDan?" to which I reply, (I'm paraphrasing) "I don't know him, but he's local. I probably found him via another link and liked his blog." To which my wife replies with what certainly seemed like an implied whisper, "He has mono you know." I've been wondering whether she thought I knew you personally (as we both work in software of some sort) and was hanging around you with the possibility of catching mono.

The implied whisper is funny. People like to act like mono is some wierd STD and they assume I must've been up to something filthy in order to catch it. You can catch mono from a dessert fork, you know.
