Everything Happens At the Same Time

I have gotten three invitations this week to things this coming Saturday night. I am already committed to a storytelling event - and, in fact, the department of shameless self-promotion needs to remind you to come to the Better Said Than Done Holiday Show at Epicure Cafe in Fairfax Saturday night at 7 p.m. Note that I will also be going to the Voices in the Glen story swap at the Beltsville Library at 2 p.m. that day, ensuring that I will not manage to read the entire Sunday Washington Post before, say, Tuesday, never mind going to any of the three other events I'd like to be at.

Now it appears that everybody in the known universe is scheduling things for the last weekend in April. I would like to do the one day hike of the C&O canal towpath, which is insane and might not be possible, given the foot problems I have been having, but I still want to.

I would also like to go to the local edition of Frequent Traveler University. (And, yes, I still have to write up the L.A. FTU.)

I would also like to go to the Northlands Storytelling Conference in Wisconsin.

Today, I found out that the next USA Science and Engineering Festival is also that weekend. Aaaargh!

I also found out that the travel show is the same weekend in March as the VASA Gathering, though I suppose I can do both if I manage to get myself to leave Lynchburg early enough Sunday morning.

Somewhere I also have to find a moment or three to spend at home. Or have fewer interests.
