According to my (old-school) brain, there should definitely be a "me" involved, but I keep thinking that it's "me and Bob". The more I look at it, though, the less confident I become. Me hates it when that happens.

Both "me and Bob" and "Bob and me" are correct. There's some notion that putting yourself at the end is more polite, but it's not a rule of grammar.
