A thousand thanks to auronlu, who gave me a heads up that the Distant Worlds Final Fantasy orchestral concert is coming back to San Francisco this summer! (July 15th and 16th) I went to check it out and discovered that, lo and behold, tickets are already on sale. So I snapped up a pair, and T and I are going on 7/16. I am very, very excited about this.
Also exciting: pre-ordering Final Fantasy XIII last weekend. I can hardly believe that it's just a week away.
