There's a first time for everything, and this morning was the first time that I ever found a dead raccoon laying in our backyard. Not something you see too often around here. And that sucker had some teeth! I called Haven Human Society animal control and they sent someone by to pick it up. I suppose I could have just dumped it in the trash, but then it'd be decomposing in the can for another five days... not a pleasant thought.

Last week I sent an e-mail to Red Lobster about some extremely bland Honey BBQ sauce that came with my dinner (you can read about that on our 2009 Reno Valentine's Day Weekend Vacation page). I wasn't expecting anything to come of it other than perhaps a reply saying "yes, it's supposed to have a very subtle flavor" or "no, the cook must have prepared it incorrectly", but today I received a letter in the mail from their Senior Guest Relations Representative, and included with the letter was $15 worth of certificates. So when Treese got home, we decided to go to dinner there.

I'm not a big seafood fan, so my choices at Red Lobster are kind of limited. I wanted to see if the Honey BBQ sauce tasted the same as before, so I asked our waitress for a sample, along with a sample of the Maple Cherry sauce that came on another chicken dish. I was happy to find the Honey BBQ did actually stimulate my palette, though it still wasn't nearly as good as the Honey BBQ we mix together at home. The Maple Cherry wasn't bad either, but tasted more like something for a dessert than a dinner. The downside of this meal was that it took forever to get our food (people who arrived after us received their dinners before we did), Treese's was overcooked, and my rice pilaf was cold. Yeah, I could have sent it back, but I hadn't eaten lunch and was damn hungry!

Well, our spectacular Charter Cable Internet is down again tonight. Been off for three hours and counting. Oh, and about 10 minutes after it went down, our TiVo HD locked up so I had to reboot by pulling the plug. Isn't technology wonderful?
