Friday 5

1. What was the last important thing you were late for?
I'm never late... I'm one of those people that gets there too early.

2. What was the last important thing you were late with?
forgot to pay my cable bill last month til they sent me a nice little reminder notice

3. What (or who!) is the most frequent cause of your lateness? Again, never late.

4. Which of your close friends or relatives can you expect almost always to be inconveniently late? My DIL Regina

5. What’s most likely to cause you to stay up too late before bed?
Hubby works graveyards and a swing shift at that, so I never get used to it. I hate being alone at night, so I stay up late many nights alone watching tv. Otherwise, I'd lay there for hours.

Is Robert (the chili maker) your husband? I said that my husband's fettuccine tastes so good - hoping to score some points. But, it really is good. Clogs a few arteries, but tasty.

Now see, I didn't even know that blackeyed peas came in a can. I love eating them but haven't a clue how to make em. Now I have something to try. Tks!!

That black-eyed pea recipe sounds really good! I never thought of combining the two.
