My new friend Jeri is dating my other friend Andrew. Jeri recently took a position at Bayer, whose offices are about 10 blocks from the offices of Affymetrix in Emeryville, where I work. One day Jeri passed by one of the lunch rooms on the sprawling campus and saw this shot of her boyfriend laminated and taped to the wall above the microwave! Pow! What the …???
Now, this is interesting on several levels. Seeing her boyfriend on the wall in her new place of employment is in itself a huge coincidence. Then, realizing that this image could only have been downloaded and printed from her friend thedude’s web site is also an amazing coincidence, wouldn’t you say? (Nice to know that someone at Bayer reads thedude.com!) And I can’t believe that out of all the images on the Internet that might be used to illustrate a messy kitchen, they picked this shot of Andrew. Amazing!
