I'm very sleepy today, so I doubt that I could say any of them correctly.

I am still working on margaritas. They go well with tortilla chips.
How to say tortilla.

I've always pronounced tortilla correctly, but I know someone who says it just like it's written, with an l sound.

I was at CVS today, and they had a lot of their nuts on sale. I thought about getting a can of chocolate covered cashews, but got a large can of mixed deluxe nuts instead.

The large can of nuts that I bought yesterday contained pistachios, so I'm all set to celebrate National Pistachio Day.

I was wondering about that. Are they shelled or unshelled?

They are shelled. I sometimes buy packages of pistachios in the shell and there are always some that are very difficult to open.

If I had an IHOP near me it would be a no brainer to enjoy a stack with some strawberry preserves for breakfast.

I do have an IHOP near me, but I guess I'll pass on that delicious, but calorie laden breakfast, since I am hoping to lose weight.

Who are you going to pick for your VP?

Hopefully, you can find some more pleasant things to look forward to.

I didn't get to IHOP today for pancakes but I had a few bagels with strawberry jam (close enough?). Oh, and some Kahlua drinks helped make today special. Cheers!
BTW my VP slot is still open. Interested parties should PM me.
