Look who arrived in the mail last week!

It's Hub Man! And Mr. Bendy!

Mary Ellen blogged about capturing glimpses of the "German bus" in Washington DC, which qualified her to win a prize from the German Embassy. She won Hub Man and Mr. Bendy!

I expressed admiration for them in the comments section and, lo and behold, last week they arrived in my mail! What a nice surprise from a remarkably generous friend.

They are now in my office where Hub Man has my camera attached to him, ready to organize my latest photos from Cuba. Unlike Mary Ellen, I haven't yet figured out how to make Mr. Bendy stand upright, so that's a project for next week.

Thanks, M.E.! You're awesome. :)

It's the Victoria Day long weekend and it's been 30° all weekend! We've been scouting the paint stores and neighbourhoods for paint colours - we're having the auld pile painted this summer. Thinking yellow. Mojo voted for black & white patches all over. Mojo no longer gets a vote.

Summer's here, everyone!

In other news, the Canadiens face elimination in the Stanley Cup semifinals tonight... After sleepwalking through games 1 and 2, they came roaring back to win game 3, only to fall back into somnambulism (to the immense frustration of their desperate fans) in game 4. Tonight it's do or die, and it's tied 1-1 at the end of the first period.

Why do the ones we love torture us so?

Oh, well. Maybe our Sharks and your Habs could have a little playoff for third place.
