The hubby was talking to a few people yesterday. One lives in Kansas City...close enough that we've been considering taking a day of it for a meet-up. Then another mentioned an anime convention being held there in May. An anime convention. Two hours from us. Okay then.

Well, their website was down last night [Naka-kon, if anyone's interested/cares. XD], but was up this morning, so first order of business was to check out registration. Of course we missed the early pre-registration, since it's in March, saw the price for what pre-registration is now and started waffling a bit.

Then I went and checked the guest list.

Nobuo Uematsu

RIGHT THERE AT THE TOP. I did some squeeing and flailing, turned and told the hubby "We HAVE TO GO!!!"

Most of you probably don't know who he is. I'd be surprised if *any* of my f-list knows who he is, really. But he's a music composer. Among other things, he composed the score for Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9 and 10. Aerith's theme is STILL my favorite.

Unfortunately we don't have a copy of any of the soundtracks. So we'll just have to settle for having him autograph our copy of 'Final Fantasy 7', if he's doing autographs.

It may not be my fandom, but I totally understand the mega-SQUEE/must-see factor, so I'm very happy for you! SQUEE!

Say hi to hubby for me, eh? Someday maybe I'll get to see you guys again.

I have to go to your town every so often for a doc appt at the Orthopedic Surgery Center, or whatever it's called, near the stadiums. Maybe we could figure out a visit opportunity for one of these times. My nephew works at a TV station there and often comes home on weekends--maybe I could come one time on a Thurs or Fri to an appointment via Medicaid driver and visit w/you guys for a bit before my nephew drives home. Or something.

That would be totally awesome! We can even put you up overnight, if need be. That is, if you don't mind a dog and a cat... XD

You know me--I love dogs and cats! We'll see when my next appointment in Columbia will be. I'll try to make it on a day that will allow me to visit!
