A Puzzling Way to Be Two Places at Once

I stumbled upon a note I wrote to myself that says, "You can't stop people from thinking." This may be the least puzzling note to myself that I have found in months.

One of the things that annoys me is that everything happens at the same time. That is why, for example, I will be nervously trying to finish a briefing dry run on Friday morning in time to get over to the Department of Commerce. But the specific things that are happening at the same time that I may have found a solution to are the Virginia Storytelling Gathering and the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. (Those are also the same weekend as Sharing the Fire, which I really need to get to one of these years, especially given how many New England storytellers I know.) Being on the board of VASA makes this a no-brainer and I am committed to the Gathering. I've even already paid my registration.

Today I got the registration reminder postcard from the ACPT. And it reminded me that one can play online or by mail. It doesn't quite count, of course, but it would be useful for the practice since there may actually be a year that I don't have a schedule conflict.
