Welcome to Can I Just Tell You?
Thanks for visiting!
Can I just tell you? This whole site needs an overhaul. My goodness!
Thank you for visiting, come back again in a few weeks. I still appreciate your support. :)
I love your support. So many of you have encouraged me to keep writing
all these years. I took a few years off because I wasn't feeling very confident about my skill and self-conscience about my
subject matter. I really appreciate your gentle (sometimes haunting) push to get back on the proverbial horse. My favorite
thing in the world is making someone laugh, typically at my own expense. It warms my heart to hear that my silly stories have
helped you smile or laugh out loud when you felt like that's the last thing you could do.
I also really appreciate the support of many boyfriends who read through my
entire collection of crazy and still chose to continue dating. I'm not sure if you felt bad for me or found me charming. Regardless,
thanks for the encouragement.
I'm going to change things up a little bit.
As you may have guessed, from some of my posts, I have aspirations of writing a book. (Or two, three, or four… We'll
see.) Anyway, all of my stories, up to 3/6/17, are true and happened to me. I'm thinking about adding some characters to my
stories and playing around with fiction writing. You'll be able to tell the real stories from fiction. I think. ;-)
not sure what my books are going to be like, yet. I've always enjoyed reading fiction but, maybe non-fiction is the right
path for me. I'm pretty confident with the voice I've developed in telling my silly stories and would like to continue to
write in that tone. I know I'm going to start off slow because, as you know, self-discipline has never been one of my stronger
qualities. I may try to play around with other subjects, too. Stay tuned.
This site is meant to make
you laugh through stories that you may be able to relate to whether it's sour love, a cooking disaster, a social faux-pas,
etc. So, bear with me as I stumble through my experiences, hopefully, more gracefully than the actual event, but just as funny,
and either share the lesson or just make you laugh out loud.
If there's ever a story that really hits your funny
bone or makes your day, let me know. I'd love to hear from you.
So, sit back, put on your reading glasses and enjoy.
Please, take a minute to sign my guest book. It seems I have readers
from around the world. I'd be more than happy to put you on an update list so you'll know when I have a new post. Cheers!

to self: when having will power breakdown in freezer section, dangerously
close to ice cream, try to remember that damage control is much easier when you only purchase one rather than trying to save
a buck for buying in bulk, thinking you won’t eat all within an unreasonably short period of time. Also, when trying
to avoid consumption of something you really want (aka, ice cream), don’t choose something else that has fewer points
(aka, peanut butter and banana on toasted oatmeal with a honey heart in the middle) when you know you’re still going
to eat the thing with high points right after the thing with lower points. That equals wasted points.
note to self: When you have to wear two fleece tops and a scarf wrapped
around your head in your apartment to keep from hypothermia, it’s time to start looking for job opportunities and a
place to live in a warmer climate.
As you can imagine, it is beyond freezing in the city. There are very few trees to block
the wind so, it’s attracted to the buildings. It whips around them like a bone chilling straight jacket that keeps us
locked into a frigid abyss…
I just made that stuff up, I’m not really sure if it’s true but, it sounds about
right. Seriously, how can anyone operate when it’s this cold? I feel like a crazy person for not having the foresight
to plan a vacation to anywhere warm this month. My electric heat is cranked up to 80 and I still feel like Nanook of the North
is going to waltz in for a visit any second!
I’ve been trapped in my apartment all day waiting for someone to
walk by who wasn’t wearing an Eskimo suit. Not a single person. Everyone’s bundled up to their eyeballs. To make
matters worse, my windows are so thin, if I stand near one, I can feel the wind blowing. Yet, I managed to eat almost all
of the ice cream in my freezer. Don’t worry; I washed it down with piping hot green tea, so as not to get frostbite
in my throat. Pomegranate green tea, to be exact, so I got the health benefits of anti-oxidants and a metabolism boost, as
It’s so cold, I can’t even bear to leave for my favorite yoga class with George. Can I just
tell you? If you belong to BSC, go to the one in Government Center, Sundays at 5, for George’s class. You won’t
be sorry. I’m usually on the verge of giggles most of the hour. Not because anything unusual happens, he’s just
funny. He’s a wiry little yogi around my age who can balance his whole body weight on his pinky. His mannerisms make
me laugh. He doesn’t tell jokes or anything like that, it’s just silly. You have to experience the class to understand.
So, anyway, I’m
missing my George fix today because of this awful weather and I’ve eaten my quarterly allotment of ice cream in 3 sittings.
When is this weather ever going to break????
I am so ready to move.
I'll make changes to this site on a regular basis, sharing news, views,
experiences, photos...whatever occurs to me. Check back often!
