2010 in review

January 2, 2011

Today, I got an email…I’m pretty sure I haven’t gotten such an email in the past (I definitely didn’t get one the beginning of 2010), but I think it’s a welcome WordPress change.

What was it? It was a summary from WordPress of Irresistible (Dis)Grace’s progress over the past year!

And so now, right below the break, I present to you: I(D)G’s 2010 in Review!

    Ah… Final Fantasy Tactics….

    Despite a sketchy English translation at times, and perhaps excessively convoluted plot, a classic about romance, revenge, betrayal, politics, cynical clergymen, war, heros – and all brought to you by inappropriately cute little cartoon characters whacking each other over the head with swords.

    Of course, in my case – I’ll get on board with anything if it has a kick-butt soundtrack.

    More politics with racial and socio-economic implications, war, heroes, some religion, but without becoming so disconnected from human affairs.
