Yes She Can: Helen Clark at TED

Mouyte. It’s a Neuw Zilandor, mouyte. Ex-Prime Minister and now Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, Helen Clark. I ran into her in a mall once. Unexpected lunchtime highlight there. She’s got a lot to say about the importance of ladies in leadership roles. Worth a watch.

Pupdate

Oh my god. That thing where a puppy sees you and starts wagging its tail and then it gets the full body wag on and then it runnnns toward you at the highest speed it has, but it is still wagging so it has a sort of helicopter butt effect as it runs. It’s the cutest thing in the world.

EDIT: A proper pupdate is in order, I think. One of the foster puppies found a home, and the other is going to live with us for ever and ever. That means we have four dogs, but one of them is really small, only really 1/8th of a dog, so it’s really 3 and one eighth dogs, which is totally reasonable and also awesome.

The puppy we’re keeping is the sweetest little dog I’ve ever had. She’ll snuggle with anyone. She had her booster shot the other day and afterward she immediately attempted a full body snuggle complete with neck nuzzle with the vet. If, at any time, she spies an open lap, she will immediately curl up in it and fall asleep. Sometimes it’s not even a lap. Sometimes someone might lay down to try to take some pictures and she might decide that their butt makes a nice bed.

The Girl From A.S.S

I have a new spanking story available on Amazon! It’s called ‘Corporate Discipline’ and yes, it is M/F. I figure seeing as plenty of the visitors here are of the bispanksual persuasion it would not be entirely out of line to mention this latest effort of mine – even though it doesn’t contain any F/F spanking. It does, however, include office discipline, erotic interludes and puerile acronyms.

Ryan Rees is the third best broker at Associated Synergy Syndicates, a company listed on the NASDAQ as ASS. ASS is no typical brokerage. It is run by a singular man, Mr Charles Benedict, a man who puts his success in the corporate world down to employee discipline. This discipline takes many forms, but in the case of female associates is usually given in the form of spankings, typically delivered over the CEO’s knee.

Ryan doesn’t understand why Mr Benedict insists on spanking his employees and for the past three years she’s gone out of her way to avoid his disciplinary attentions – but her luck is about to run out.

Outages and Poutages

There apparently was some downtime whilst I was asleep, and it looks like there could be more afoot according to this article. My sites, along with many hundreds of thousands of others live in Utah, and having recently been migrated to a new server, appear to have been up and down like a ping pong ball for the last few hours. I’ve no idea if this issue is fixed, as Hostgator is currently suffering the wrath of the masses, but here’s hoping!

Still comering…

I’m working on the next Rigel book, as mentioned earlier. Which makes this corner of the internet somewhat quiet. The good news is that the story has wrenched itself out of my hands and is tap dancing nonsensically on the desk, refusing all efforts to make it conform to narrative expectations. This is a good sign, as it means it is almost done.

On another note, today I discovered a descriptive term for one of those things that you know is a thing, but you can’t put words to it, so you can’t explain why it’s bad. Know what I mean? Yes No?

The term is ‘thought terminating cliche‘ – and its used to describe any phrase which is used to attempt to shut down further thought on or discussion of a subject. These things are everywhere in the consensus narrative – but, as some magicians have noted over the years, knowing the name of a thing gives you some measure of power over it. The next time someone dismisses a topic of discussion with some offhanded, inherently meaningless phrase, you’ll know exactly why it makes your palm itch.

Announcing the coming soonering of…

HEALING RIGEL COVER LITTLE The perhaps too long awaited sequel to Loving Rigel (once titled Operation Sadiemeister). This should be out by the end of the month at the very latest. Unless it isn’t. But I am pretty sure it will be.

So what is Healing Rigel about?

Hearts and bottoms are on the line! In the aftermath of Rigel’s disastrous attempt at a proposal, both Rigel and Sadie are left emotionally devastated and acting out in their own ways. Meanwhile, gentle dyke Tank seems to be getting called off the romance bench by Kate, who is far too young for her – and far too straight, for that matter.

Other books in the Rigel Series:

Obeying Rigel
Loving Rigel (Sequel to Obeying Rigel)

Prequels:

Training Rigel (Prequel to Obeying Rigel.)
Chasing Rigel (Sequel to the prequel. Yes. I know.)

FOUND: A Name

I did it! I found my new name. It is a lot like the old one, which I think will be good for continuity. It also drops the Norse God theme, which I was never fully comfortable with in the first place.

Ther Renard

This name is neat I think. It rolls off the tongue, climbs up into the rafters and peers down at you. Then it flicks the light switches on and off for a few minutes for its own amusement and eventually curls up and goes to sleep in a sun beam. It is unique without having to be spelled yoonikke and it challenges heteronormative expectations, of, uh, things.

I made this cover, so we can all appreciate what it might look like on a cover. Why, just like a real name!
