The Anna Templeton Centre Tea and Sale started today. Due to unfortunate circumstances, I’m not in it, but a lot of my favourite people are. I popped in today for a bit, and was delighted to come across Graham Blair’s booth. I’d seen his giant squid woodcut used on the promo materials for the Storyteller’s festival this year, and fallen in love with it. I have coveted this squid for months. Months! I gazed longingly upon the posters and the wee folding brochures, and I sighed, for I knew I would never get around to purchasing a squid of my own.
And yesterday someone bought a bunch of cephalopot mugs. And I had not yet been to the bank. And more than enough money was right there in my pocket.
And now I have me a squid!
 I have a particular fondness for squid. Cephalopods in general, really. The show up in the pots, they show up on the tiles…
 I also picked up a wee blue catnip mousie for Eliu and Moussa.
 Well, realistically, it will belong to Moussa. He tends to hog all new catnip toys for their first few days in the apartment. But Eliu will be allowed to play with it eventually.
