Vexatious. Irksome. Rebarbative. You may not know all those words, but in a sentence, you get the idea. http://ow.ly/h3MD30iYn7o

Happy publication day to my fellow QDT host Ellen Hendriksen! I got an advance review copy of the book and thought it was so helpful I wrote a blurb for it. I'm thrilled other people now get to benefit from Ellen's advice too!

Many people are starting to use "podium" to mean "lectern," but if you want to avoid getting called out, it's best to stick to "lectern" when you mean something you stand behind. http://ow.ly/g3do50gnGxr
