    Let loose darlin’. I’m all ears. I’m actually partial to a good rant.

  2. I’m thinking (dangerous process that can be) that if you are THAT worked up over THAT topic, then perhaps the best thing for you to do is to let ‘er rip! It appears that what you really need is a super big cathartic post and I’m quite sure you’d still manage to bring it all together in a way that is informative, interesting, innovative even if it does contain a goodly number of much needed expletive-deleteds, which we all know you wouldn’t bother to delete then, would you?
    So go ahead and clear your air and entertain the troops.

    Let loose and rant m’dear. I love a good rant, and I’m sure yours would be sublime.

    If it helps, I know a Turkish woman who thinks Turkish men are total asshats. Of course she lives here and is the vice-president of a company, but still….

    You are not alone.

    What Pam said. I’m dying to hear your controlled, thoughtful insight…

    Yes, you may feel that you are not ready to write, but we are definitely ready to read. Go for it with all you’ve got. You will feel so much better after getting it off your chest (so to speak!).

  6. Since your off-the-top rant is bound to be better written than most anything else out there, I definitely think you should go for it.

    Cannot wait to hear the whole, fresh, raw, unvarnished truth. The measured opinion can come later:)

    i generally agree on the preference for finely crafted words but no and again an unpolished and cathartic dump of slimy verbiage can at times be quite the entertaining read. it can also make the reader feel a bit lighter, not unlike after a cathartic dump of the intestinal variety. and since turds can’t be polished i say, “go for it!”

    Jocelyn, we all know what you’re capable of when it comes to well-planned, finely-edited writing, There is no possibility that your reputation will suffer permanent damage should you just let loose with an undisciplined rant, which I (and I’m clearly not alone) would love to read.
    Have I told you what your posts and French TV advertising have in common? Perhaps I have. If not, just ask.

    • Jocelyn says:

      Deborah: Is it that French TV advertising and I both make no sense? That’s my guess.

      Okay, I’m going to try to write some sentences about Turkish men, and I’m going to try damn fricking hard not to swear in every single sentence. That’s kind of my problem this week: I can’t seem to stop swearing in regards to this topic, and I tend to prefer sparing curses used for effect rather than as the meat of the post.

    I would love to read it, too, although I foresee a rise in my blood pressure when I do. (Not from your writing, but from the subject.) The writing will be cathartic, certainly, and perhaps if you let the piece sit on your hard drive for a day or two you will be able to come back to it and add some cool and reasoned conclusion.

    Or not. Whatever. Just do it.

    Well you won’t have to deal with them much longer. Heck, a year from now, you might miss them a little bit. Ha Ha! I keed, I keed.

  12. Monica says:

    ah, Jocelyn – you are too cute…
    and I didn’t even know you had been into Turkish men…
    more wohahahahaha…

    Has there been any resolution in court for Vicky and Mr. P versus the Evil Mehmet?

    Keep mulling this one over, sweetie. And stay the F*CK off of F*C****K because I tell you, that’s the devil’s territory, where good writers go to be sucked into a wasteland and die. You’re too good to go there.

  15. “until I can beach myself on a more objective island from which to consider my subject.”

    Hahaha! Perhaps a visit to the pharmacist is a good idea before you begin that one.

    RE Facebook. I haven’t quite figured it out yet. People write fragments and I don’t understand what they mean, yet 45 people check it as “Like” and make comments like “so cool” or “love it.” Of course I have been known to see a comment I’ve made only to notice missing words or a misspelling. Maybe that’s when I’ve been drinking.

    I’m partly curious and partly I think I already geddit. I once dated a turk. It was…odd.

    As for facebook, I’m usually more annoyed by the people who seem to think that “…” is a status update. Or the ones who declare in capital letters that today is a HORRIBLE day, and then when someone asks them what’s wrong, their response is “I don’t want to talk about it.” I used to think that those people were just a cartoon-joke, but nope. I’ve noticed several in my friends-list. I’m thinking my friends-list is going to need some tidying up…
