Catherine is a happy novelist, but a little strapped for cash, so the six-week job at computer software company Create and Conquer is a welcome chance to make some extra money. She meets the CEO, Lance MacCallan, on her very first day. He’s gorgeous, rich, admired by all around him, and a total bully.

But it’s not the attacks on her competence or the threats to fire her that have Catherine rattled. No, it’s when the CEO starts trying to convince her to go out with him that things get really unpleasant.

This May Be Cringe-Inducing [Oct. 9th, 2016|02:35 pm]
This weekend, my dad told me he was going to read The CEO Can Drop Dead. I told him years ago that he shouldn't read any of my books, because he wouldn't care for any of it, style, content, genre. And he didn't. But he decided to read this one. I complained that of all of my books it's the outlier, but he said he wanted to read the one set in the real modern world. There is one scene that I definitely don't want him to read, and I'm hoping he'll get bored before he gets to that scene. He doesn't enjoy reading fiction.

I think I have my mom to blame for this. She's always raving about it.

So Sick of "It's Just a Joke" [Oct. 8th, 2016|10:49 am]
There is a stand-up comedian called Jim Jefferies. I've seen parts of his show on youtube and he struck me as pretty funny, so I was happy to find the whole show on Netflix and started to watch.

And he begins with rape jokes. Several minutes of rape jokes. Then he complains about a reviewer who criticized him for telling rape jokes. She had reproduced some of his exact words. He says, yeah, if you read it, it looks terrible. But it needs to be taken in context.

The context was a huge audience in which you have a good chance of finding about thirty percent have endured sexual assault.

Then he says, "They're just jokes."

Yeah, so are the racists jokes. And the homophobic jokes. All those jokes that kick down at vulnerable people. From all those people who think refusing to treat others with common decency are taking a strong and brave political stance against political correctness, and everyone else is too easily offended.

If he wants to use a bunch of rape jokes, fine, he has that right, but to then try to shield himself from negative responses with "It's just a joke" is like a writer who sprinkles his novels with rape scenes and tries to deny responsibility by claiming "historical accuracy." It's spineless and disgusting, and I'm so sick of it. If you're going to go out of the way to produce material you know is horribly offensive and potentially traumatizing, then take responsibility for it. Admit you enjoy telling rape jokes or writing rape scenes. To do otherwise makes you a coward as well as a jerk.

I didn't watch the rest of the show and won't watch anything he ever creates again.

Problems with Windows 10 ... So Far [Oct. 5th, 2016|03:49 pm]
My computer is now asking for a password. I never set that up, and I panicked the first time.

I can no longer back my documents on to the external hard drives I currently own.

I am kicked off the internet several times a day, and it's getting worse as time goes by. Not a problem with my provider.

I never wanted Windows 10.

Contest Reminder [Oct. 1st, 2016|12:02 pm]
A reminder that I am holding a draw for the last three traditionally published books in the heroes series. Send me an email and tell me which one(s) you want. Ends on Hallowe'en. moirajmoore@yahoo.com

In other "news," man am I dead tired. This morning I lay in bed for about an hour after waking up, just staring at the ceiling, and I feel like I spent all of yesterday engaged in some high intensity work out. I know it's because I have been stressed about the thesis for a while and wound up tighter than a clock the past week. So, will I go outside or will I not? I have to get more maple syrup from the farmers' market, which isn't open tomorrow.

So, Now What? [Sep. 30th, 2016|07:26 pm]
Today I successfully defended my thesis, uploaded it to the relevant system - where there's some technical issue about it being properly uploaded, because of course there is - and now I'm done. It feels kind of weird.

The defense was an easier process than I'd expected or feared. I think I answered the questions well. There were two exceptions. One was that one of the professors said I lacked a theoretical model. Comparing legal systems in two different jurisdictions is a perfectly acceptable academic approach and I was sitting there thinking, "Is he going to make me revise this so it conforms to some other theoretical approach?" Night. Mare. That would really mean rewriting the whole thing and I think I would have murdered him if he made me do that. The other was that he wanted to know why I didn't use (aspect of law that doesn't actually apply) to support my argument. I don't know what was on my face, but I was thinking, "What the hell does that have to do with anything?" and "Oh my god, is he expecting me to shoe-horn that irrelevant concept into my thesis?" Which would not only require that I engage in serious revisions, but that I first research that aspect of law, because I haven't even thought about it since I left law school. Fortunately, one of the other professors on the panel looked at the first one with a confused frown and said something like, "What does that have to do with her argument?" And then the two of them disputed it, politely, and then the idea was allowed to die.

I was definitely expecting them to demand some kind of revisions, but nope. Good as is.

So, a year of work and stress and it's suddenly done.

Panic Part Two [Sep. 29th, 2016|09:28 am]
The wonderful thing about having a supervisor who is notorious for one reason or another is that people go above the call of duty to help you out. One way to make my costs considerably lower is to transfer to the part-time student program, which I qualify for given I haven't got anything to do beyond revise my dissertation, if such revision is necessary. The deadline for that was a month ago, but upon hearing my circumstances last Monday, the department said they would accept my application that day. I ran to another person's office - the person who really doesn't like the supervising professor - who printed out the form and a student plan we threw together, which I signed, and she got my professor to sign off on, and carried the document to the other department herself.

The other hiccup was that the approval must be given by the end of today. They processed my request in only a couple of days.

So that's one source of stress gone. I owe some people some flowers.

Rodent in the Ceiling [Sep. 27th, 2016|09:02 pm]
Have I mentioned there was a rodent in the ceiling? There is a rodent in the ceiling. At first I thought the people in the apartment above me had bought a puppy, because I heard small paws skittering about as though it was very excited about its new place. It is possible to hear that sort of thing. But it never barked, and I noticed the sound stopped when I turned on the kitchen light and resumed when I turned it off. Then I noticed the hole that had been chewed into the ceiling panel right over my bed. Creepy.

As far as I can tell, it hasn't actually entered the apartment, but it is disturbing nontheless.
