O Canada. O Konami. O Canadian Konami. O Konada? Canami?
Hahahahahahaha! Canada is putting out a new $10 bill to mark their 150th birthday. They made a snazzy new web page where you can do a 360-degree view of it (and see that, once again, it is like a million times prettier than any American money).
You can also do something else: if you enter the Konami code on that page, you get a fun li’l surprise. Be sure to have the volume up (but not a lot); there’s an auditory component.
If you don’t want to do it yourself, a couple of people have recorded it and put it on on the YouTubes. Like this one:
If you didn’t do it yourself because you don’t know what the Konami code is, then are you sure this is the right website for you? Ah, just google it or something. It even has its own Wikipedia page.
Basically what this means is that the Bank of Canada’s web development team has some GREAT BIG NERDS in it!
Also, O Canada is a way better song than Star Spangled Banner.
To make a traumatizing story very short: On Monday while Carrie, Avery, and our dog Suki were on vacation in the middle of BC, Canada (I stayed home with the cat) with family friends, Suki got spooked bad by a thunderbolt and ran off into the woods in the middle of nowhere (basically). NOBODY could find her, and they were forced to come back to the States without Suki.
On Thursday Carrie & I drove 9 hours back up to Canada and got our darling pup back after almost 72 nightmarish hours!
What a survivalist pup this Suki is.
Suki is home now and is fine, everyone is fine. We’re beyond thrilled (and frankly a kinda surprised) to have Suki back. But we’re a little traumatized and emotionally drained. Except for Suki; she’s like nothing ever happened.
She just keeps rollin’ (around on the ground).
I can’t thank enough everyone who spent countless hours tromping through the woods looking for her. I’ll try to find a way, though.
