WOW: PUGs have been so bad that I may finally be baited into impersonating a tank with the Druid. Because of language, I've never even tried to tank; however, few people bother to talk in PUGs, so that's somewhat moot nowadays.
So, I tell my friend: "OK, I'll try one." I was going to start with normals. So much for that plan. He was confident that he could heal though bad tanking (or at least wanted a challenge). Right, y'all know what happened. "Look, Troll heroic and one that I barely know!" We made it and with fewer deaths than some of the PUGs I'd been in.
I was distracted and my play time was too scattered to do anything serious, but DMF has been kind to me. The sea pony has dropped twice already and I haven't done a great deal of fishing.
I have papers I want to finish grading and need to renegotiate the lease for next year.
Victory of sorts. I got the 2nd year papers wrapped up and I'm reasonably comfortable with the grades. The lease kept me on edge most of the weekend, but in the end the landlord only asked for a token increase in rent (100 RMB) that was easily within my budget. I can relax a bit now, I hate having to move in the middle of finals.
In Chinese: glasses are yanjing; eyes are yanjing, and the beer of Beijing is Yanjing. When speaking, the difference is in the tones. Did I just order a glass of beer or a glass of eyes?
