Fever, Phlegm and Star Wars Episode 7

Yeah, it’s been that kind of week for me.  I was attending my weekly writer’s critique group and the host, a friend of mine of course, was hacking and coughing all night long.  I wasn’t afraid of course, I never am, but the next day I had that telltale tickle in the back of my throat that let me know I was “going to have a bad day.”

Of course the day wasn’t so bad.  It was during the night when a full on fever storm of misery hit me.  My head felt like it was being pounded on by Thor himself and my sweat caused the sheets to cling to me as only a humid South Florida sickness can.  But there was something interesting that happened.

Something interesting indeed.

Whenever I have a fever, or get really warm under the sheets, I have much more vivid and convoluted dreams.  I’m sure some of you can relate.  Of course my misery was so bad that I wasn’t actually asleep at all, I was between worlds.  Specifically, I had one foot in the real world and another in a galaxy far, far away.

Yes I must state that learning of Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm was somewhat bittersweet for me, for various reasons I don’t want to get into at the moment, but regardless I am very, VERY excited about Star Wars Episode 7!  Of course being sick and feverish, Star Wars was the last possible thing on my mind and yet the possibilities bombarded my sweltering consciousness.

I, in my writer’s mind, imagined what the first teaser trailer might look like.  What would the plot be?  Who would the villian be?  Are they going to incorporate the fan frenzied expanded universe into the new movies?  God I hope so, if Mara Jade isn’t in it, I’ll be pretty miffed.

Sorry, sidetracked.

So yeah, all these things and more were racing around my fevered brain as I prayed for an axe wielding barbarian to cleave my head open to relieve some sinus pressure.  Jedi and Sith were battling in the hundreds and the possible characters beside the “main 3” danced before my mind.

Now that the fever has passed, I’m in the god awful coughing up phlegm phase of whatever the hell it is I came down with.  Fortunately my non-vaccinated ass has a bitchin’ immune system and is currently in the process of kicking the crap out of this thing.  I just wish it would hurry up.

And I also wish that SW Ep 7 would hurry up too.  I’m dying to see if my fevered delusions came true.
