Honey-Chipotle Glazed Ribs

Taste - Spicy at first. Some bites were mouth-watering, others were average.

Smell - Muted

Texture - I didn't enjoy the cartilage.

Appearance (visual aesthetics, general appeal, use of color) - Looked very good, could have taken a picture of it and put it into a magazine

Presentation (including degree of difficulty in eating) - Meat easily slid off the bone

Quality of ingredients - OK, the cartilage was annoying. I don't really like Caesar Salad.

Temperature - Nice and warm

Overall success of dish - A little disappointing (6.8/10)

Dream - 6/1

I'm funny when I'm half asleep:

As Kate and I were falling into a deep sleep, I dreamed I was in water and a small fish or two got into the back of my shorts and/or the back of my shirt. Kate says I started to moan/whimper.

Kate: Derek
Derek: Kate
Kate: What's going on?
Derek: I gotta get these fish off my back

I wanted to get the fish out so at this point I stood up (semi-awake) and re-adjusted my shirt and shorts. As I was doing this..

Kate: What's wrong?
Derek: I gotta get these fish off my back.
Kate: I don't understand.
Derek: You wouldn't.

I've got a bad attitude because I'm half-asleep and tired and grumpy and trying to get these damn fish off of me.

Kate says I then went to the bathroom, but I don't really remember that.

I think this dream was caused by a spider that we found in Ollie's bed close to my behind.
