my nerdy little secret...

Yeah, I know I've mentioned it before, but I track my currency at WheresGeorge.

Yes, it's the geekiest thing I do(I hope!). I joined about a year and a half ago, and just yesterday I received the 1000th hit on one of my bills. I've registered 15,410 bills with a combined value of $70,708. There are a little over 50,000 people in the USA actively tracking their currency at WG. I'm in the top 100 Texas trackers. woohoo!


See? I told you it was geeky.


There are some WGers who have registered more than a million individual bills so if you think _I_ am obsessive, well, I'm chump change. Srsly. It's interesting to see where your money goes, and in some cases, how quickly. If I travel, I always try to get a couple straps of ones from the bank and register them to disperse along my path. Yes, this means spending them-- not just throwing them out the window of the hot air balloon.

I think this is kooky but cute! I did get a dollar bill recently that had an arrow pointing to Washington and the phrase "I owned slaves."
Whatever, Dude. It's currency.

Guess my geek rating is going down... I didn't even know this existed :-)

Ya know, I've only see one "Where's George" bills with the stamp on it in my life.
