    Barry is a deep well of passion I never imagined. And my husband’s name is Joe, so if we rhymed I would be….um, guess I’d better think of a rhyme for Shelly.

    This is a marathon of fun. I only wish you hadn’t stopped!

    I was reading the Geddy Lee quotes to the hubs. He was very impressed. Any woman who knows Rush so well has his vote.

    I’d venture that seeing your abiding love of Geddy, things might not have turned out so well with Barry even if he’d been straight.

    If only I could get the references!
    Even without understanding (and filling in songs, shops and union meetings of my own) I get the humour. You could make a trip to an underground carpark funny. Come to think of it, there COULD well be a good story in there!

    I sent you an email in reply to your question. The whole story is a bit different, but the gist is there.

    I can’t believe you’re an introvert. Pieces like this one blast off the page at 90mph and are so full of energy that I have to duck out of the way, then make a sidewise approach for a complete re-read. Your cleverness with Geddy-references is, well, extraordinarily clever. I have to tell myself that you just didn’t have all that in your head, otherwise I’d be too intimidated to write about anything ever again. And that size 6 was brilliantly placed in the narrative. Too funny!! I love the diary format and might steal a leaf…

    Dear Jocelyn’s Diary,
    Don’t ever let her stop these posts. Also, please deliver me some cable so I too may watch copious episodes of Bring It. Also, I tried on about a million dresses for Listen to Your Mother, and I have no idea how to shop for those zip-up-the-back-sheath-dresses. So form fitting! And uncomfortable! I doth protest!

    Just you wait until that google-eyed hand-puppet becomes president (as if that were even anywhere in the neighborhood of the universe of possibility). It will become a right-to-work country, and the corporations will rejoice.
