So I’m back. It’s Monday and I’m back at work and back blogging. I was home sick the last couple of days with the first cold of the season.

But then again, I guess that is the difference between a sick day and a holiday.
Today I came across the following optical illusion that you have to check out. I’d love it if somebody could explian to me how it works. (Nod to Bruce from TCH who pointed this out in the TCH forums.)
