Why Dragon*Con is Giving Me A Headache and I'm Not Even There Yet

Well, first, the good news. Apparently, the Trek Trak blinked and the 'Galactica' panel has been shifted to 10:00am Sunday. Which means, YAY!, no conflict with the Firefly panel on Friday.

The bad news is I still don't have a flight. However, before you get on my case, it appears it's a good thing I did procrastinate. Northwest (the cheapest airfare) and Delta (the direct flight) are both filing for bankruptcy by September 1. Airports are already preparing for the fallout. So, hello to my old friend Continental who's not billions of dollars in the red.

I found several viable flights out on Thursday, but coming back on Sunday they only have early flights. Not just because of Jamie, but because I'm sure they'll have other good stuff scheduled that day I've decided to fly out Monday. For the first time I was hoping to find a flight out in the wee hours of the morning. Thus far, 8:00am seems to be my best bet. Either I'll get a cheap room at a hotel for Sunday night and maybe stay later or perhaps just hang out at the aiport. I'm figuring since I'll be staying over I'll be up late anyway hanging out with folks anyway, so what's a few additional hours at the airport? Now, to bring the laptop or not bring the laptop...

OK, I just saw over at the Sci-Fi website that three new Highlander films are in development to explore the origins of the Immortals and to star Adrian Paul. Now, I haven't seen Adrian recently, but, um, immortals supposedly don't age and isn't he starting to look older? Which is one problem I had with the last film (other than it was total crap) with Christopher Lambert's presence. This all just screams 'direct to video'.
