Received The Keys

I got the keys today to my new apartment.
Apartment Building (Back)
My apartment is everything on the top floor to the right of the stairwell.

I whacked the chocolate orange to christen my new apartment.
Don't Believe Advertising
Don't believe the advertising... no cute guy in a bubble bath dropped through the ceiling. *sigh* ;)

Nice hardwood floors!

In the front hall. They're in really rough condition in the bedrooms and living room. (They haven't been redone like the front hall was.) On the whole, the place is actually quite nice.

Yay for new digs :-)
Is that a Canadian thing to christen a new home - throwing chocolate on the floor?
Don't laugh....my curiosity has got the better of me! LOL
Happy New Year too

Congrats on the new apt - it looks like there are lots of windows to make it bright. :)

Okay, I've seen and consumed chocolate oranges. But I've never seen such an advertisement! Good thing, 'cause I'd probably be eating a lot of chocolate trying to get the guy to show up!

Congrats on the new apartment - now you can have the fun of really personalizing it and making it yours!

Mandie: No, there's no such Canadian tradition. ;) (Although there should be! The more chocolate, the better!)

Basically, I felt like doing *something* to mark the occasion. It's sort of a cross between christening a ship by smashing a champagne bottle on the prow, and because I thought it would be a funny blog post because of the commercials that have been showing lately.

The commercial features a guy in an apartment, and he smashes the chocolate orange on his coffee table to break apart the pieces. The jolt apparently causes a beautiful woman in a bubble bath to come crashing through the ceiling into his apartment. The tag line is something like "when you smash a Terry's chocolate orange, good things happen."

I figured that if the guy got a hot woman, I should get a hot man. ;) But, *sigh*, not everything you see on TV is true. ;) (Kath: if you should figure out how to get it to work, let me know! ;) )

At least I got to have a slice of my chocolate orange. ;)

I don't know that the ceiling of your apt. falling in would be such a good thing, inspite of the hot woman/man :-) Plus you are on the top floor, maybe thats why the Chocolate Orange miracle didn't work?

E-mail me your address, when you are done moving.

Thanks for the explanation - I'll keep my fingers crossed for you though!
