Kitty name, new apartment, cosmo's and guerrilla graffiti.

Another weekend comes to a close. It seems that we may have found a new apartment on Saturday. I will drop some pictures off here later this week. The place is really nice and affordable. The kitchen is amazing. It is completely redone. Granite counter tops, all electric, brand new stainless steel appliances, glass doors, hardwood floors, the whole package. We should find out either Monday or Tuesday if we will get the place. Fingers crossed.

It seems we have decided on a name for our new roommate. Tato. As in Potato minus the "Po". It just seems to flow easily and he acts like a potato-head often enough that it works. For all of you wondering what the name might finally settle on, there you have it, Tato.

Two days at work was unpleasant. Today I had the day off and we decided to take a quick trip to Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe. We got some white chocolate chips and some other random fun stuff. Look for some of these items to be used in recipes posted here soon, maybe after the move.

On the way to Cosmo's we passed a wall of really nice guerrilla graffiti. There are some pictures below. Personally, I think that the risks people take to illegally post their artwork is inspiring. Art should not be limited to the comfortable and risk free cultures that we embrace socially. Graffiti has just as much social and cultural significance as any other type of artwork. Take a look and become inspired.

Yay! Nice to finally put a name to the fuzzy face~ hi Tato! I love the name.
I look forwards to seeing baked goods full of white chocolate chips, made in your new apartment kitchen, soon! (Good luck, fingers crossed) >;o)

Tato is a cute name! I can't wait to see how the white chocolate chip recipes come out.
