I’m not sure what was wrong with me yesterday. I was totally out for the count. Felt as if I were coming down with the flu with the accompanying headache, nausea and dizziness. It was not, by any means, a fun afternoon and evening for moi. I spent all of it wrapped in blankets on the couch, shivering and groaning, while I numbly stared at TCM’s 31 days of Oscar movies until about 1:30 a.m. when I finally got up enough strength to stagger off to bed.
I feel much better today although still groggy and tired. I’m somewhat on and off the couch (mostly on) and, when I am on the couch, I find myself trying to come up with an idea for a panel for this year’s Odyssey Con or Odd Con as it’s commonly known. Odd Con is a science fiction convention that takes place in early spring. It’s a local, fan-run convention, so it’s small enough to not be totally overwhelming, but big enough that there are guests of honor and panel discussions.
They are looking for panel suggestions and I believe the deadline is coming up in a couple of weeks. I’ve been thinking about suggesting a panel on Babylon 5, a big favorite of mine. I don’t think I’ve been on or even attended a panel on Babylon 5 before. The theme for this year’s Odd Con is Dr. Who, so there will be lots of panel suggestions on the good Doctor, but I’m sure they’ll also be looking for some variety.
Don’t know what kind of a panel I could suggest on Babylon 5, however. One thing I do remember about Babylon 5 is how much its storyline and some of its characters reminded me of Lord of the Rings. For some reason I always saw Captain Sheridan as Frodo. 🙂
