9:01a - [WoW] Emergency Bear
There's a pattern that's a mighty ego-boost for me when it occurs: while I'm DPSing in cat form, the tank dies, and I switch into bear form, taunt the boss, and save the day. So far, I've done this on Anub'Rekhan, Grand Widow Faerlina, Maexxna, Heigan, and Kel'thuzad.

Last night, I managed a different variation on that. We were fighting Kel'thuzad. I was main tank. We had an off tank who's relatively new, but shows great promise. He picked up the Guardians of Icecrown when they entered the fight, but some glitch happened between him and his healer, and he dropped like a stone.
I roared and growled and managed to get the two guardians to attack me after they killed only one more player, and we managed to finish the fight with me tanking all three foes. (And sweating bullets doing so.)

Which means that I managed to grab aggro when the tank went down and finish the fight--when I was the main tank.

3:27p - Zero Tolerance
One of Lori's rant-button topics is the folly of zero-tolerance rules in schools. Short form: she believes that it's not right to ignore the issues of intent and child development in order to apply a one-size-fits-all set of rules.

It turns out that the American Psychological Association agrees with her on this.
