Self-Awareness Question: Believing Thoughts

Folks have mentioned an interest in questions and conversations that make them think. So I've decided to offer more of those.  This is the current list on self-awareness.

4. Do you believe every thought you think?

LOL no. I have whole universes in here.  I have hordes of characters.  I think it's fascinating to go down a list of philosophies and think about how each one would argue a given dilemma.  I don't have a reality tunnel.  I have a reality tunnel matrix that would put the Mammoth Cave complex to shame.  Yes, people have gotten lost in it.

People-Watching Bingo Card 10-31-19

[personal profile] yntoila is hosting the People-Watching Fest over on [community profile] allbingo from November 1-November 30. Observe people in all their diversity!  (See all my 2019 bingo cards.)

If you'd like to sponsor a particular square, especially if you have an idea for what character, series, or situation it would fit -- talk to me and we'll work something out. I've had a few requests for this and the results have been awesome so far. This is a good opportunity for those of you with favorites that don't always mesh well with the themes of my monthly projects. I may still post some of the fills for free, because I'm using this to attract new readers; but if it brings in money, that means I can do more of it. That's part of why I'm crossing some of the bingo prompts with other projects, such as the Poetry Fishbowl.

Underlined prompts have been filled.

Vermont Apron Company

I stumbled across this while looking for something else.  The Vermont Apron Company makes aprons for a variety of practical purposes.  I'm not sure if all of them have pockets, but most visibly do.  I call your attention to the gathering aprons.  I remember these -- something I've made in many lives when I got tired of tying my shirt up to hold things.  They have sizes from XS to 5X, plus children, and their models include genuinely party-size people not just average-size-14, so there should be something for almost everyone.

What they don't have, and I had to hunt elsewhere, is an egg-gathering apron.  This type has many small pockets.  It is essential to put elastic around the top, so the eggs don't fall out when you bend down to reach a new one, although almost all the pictures I saw had none.  So if you buy, be careful to look for that feature.

First Snow!

It's snowing outside, just a little, but it's sticking to the leaves and a little to the ground, so that counts.  :D  It's been years since I saw it this early.  This actually used to be normal for here.
