Dinner for one... they showed that on New Years Eve in Sweden during my childhood but it was cancelled some 10 years ago. Can't say I have ever missed it since.
I didn't really get why higher geared prot paladins should be more affected by threat loss from bubbles? When it comes to mana/rage/rune regeneration not only doesn't the shield any longer affect it but any decent discipline priest should also be specced into rapture which increases said energies. You knew that already, but may as well point it out to those new priests that are going to take over in 2010.
Also, if you are to try out raid healing and are yet uncomfortable with your new shiny unit frames a tip is to do some battlegrounds to test it out. Sign up for Wintergrasp or even Alterac Valley (though the latter means waiting for 6 hours in queue on my battlegroup) and heal away! In the bigger size battlegrounds it doesn't hurt anyone else as much if you die alot or mess up and not many will even take notice so you don't have to stand there with your pants down.
I wish you a super awesome 2010
