Track Your Money

Yesterday I withdrew some money and received this bill, which featured the URL www.wherehaveibeen.com. The site (with its tacky, tacky ads), is dedicated to tracking Canadian currency. It’s a competitor, I suppose, to Where’s Willy, a site I wrote about last year (cousing of Where’s George).

I entered in this bill, and found that it had originally been ‘launched’ on June 5, 2004, in a taxi in Quesnel, BC.

UPDATE: What are the freakin’ odds of that? I received that $20 bill yesterday. When I bought a Slurpee today, I received a $5 bill with www.whereswilly.com stamped on it. This bill was ‘launched’ a month ago in Burnaby.

Is the universe trying to tell me something? ‘Keep track of your money.’ Or, maybe, ‘you’ve got to spend money to make money.’
