A colour-changing pet is one which picks a differently-coloured skin each time it's summoned.
This was actually a bug which was fixed in 5.0.4. Pets tamed before the patch maintain this trait. Those same mobs tamed after the patch do not change colour.
A small shout-out to comedian Doug Stanhope.
While he's been active for quite some time, I only recently discovered him.
He is an intelligent, strangely-articulate and entirely abrasive asshole of a comedian. I laughed out loud very loudly multiple times watching/listening to his work.
There are lots of torrents out there, and yes Doug is ok with you downloading his stuff. (See Joe Rogan's podcast).
Some of his live stand-up is nowhere near as good as his professional performances. On the other hand, there can be a stiffness to the pro performances where they won't compare to a really good live one. Below is what I've seen so far.
I recently watched The Mark Steel Lectures (torrent) and was amused and entertained. I recommend this series.
I will re-watch the shows and update this page in the future.
World of Warcraft > TidyBar >
 v5.0 was released.
Tidy Bar[doesn't exist] is a simple bar World of Warcraft addon which relocates some blizzard bars, simplifies them and can hide some of the extra stuff out of the way until moused-over.
I opened a ticket but realised that I may be able to fix the problems myself.
.. and so I did.
Andrew Mellen is a consultant, speaker and author who helps remove "stuff" from people's lives.
I watched a couple of videos of him speaking. He's entertaining, and has some interesting things to say and ways to get his ideas across. Not a lot of what he says is new to me, but there are some nice angles which made it worth my time to re-watch them and take notes.
These are my notes and thoughts.

A small update on a couple of addons I'm using. One day I hope to get into more detailed reviews. This post is just a baby-step in that direction.
