Next weekend marks a full year of Show and Tell. I am open to any suggestions on how to celebrate.
A week or two ago, Josh needed a new cell phone and I tagged along. My cell phone is a piece of crap. First of all, I allowed the Wolvog to choose it which was my first mistake. It hasn't worked for months--most people who have tried to call me have either had it go to voice mail automatically (and I don't receive a message waiting beep) or they get to hear the inside of my purse for fifteen minutes or so until the battery dies. Which is a nice sound because the purse is made of some crinkly rip-stop material so they're treated to a whoosh whoosh whoosh, almost like being beneath my heart.
The store had a 2 for 1 deal going on, so we decided to take them up on it and get me a new phone. I do not know how to send a text message (and we have texting turned off on our service plan), but even better, it has email access! I can check email from the road. I mean, not as I'm driving, but as Josh is driving and I am sitting in the passanger seat. How cool is that? Technology is an amazing thing.
It is also a cheery red colour that I like and when you flip it open, it has a full key pad. I've only send a few emails from it because it's sort of annoying to type with your thumbs. But to know that I have email access on the road somehow fills me with joy.
What are you showing today?
Click here or scroll down to the bottom of this post if this is your first time joining along (hint: link to the permalink for the post, not the main url for your blog and use your blog's name, not your name). The list is open from now until late Tuesday night and a new one is posted every week.
Other People Standing at the Head of the Class:
Want to bring something to Show and Tell?
- If you would like to join circle time and show something to the class, simply post each Saturday night (or earlier in the week or on Monday if you can't do the weekend), hopefully including a picture if possible, and telling us about your item. It can be anything--a photo from a trip, a picture of the dress you bought this week, a random image from an old yearbook showing a person you miss. It doesn't need to contain a picture if you can't get a picture--you can simply tell a story about a single item. The list opens every Saturday night and closes on Tuesday night.
- You must mention Show and Tell and include a link back to this post in your post so people can find the rest of the class. This spreads new readership around through the list. This is now required.
- Label your post "Show and Tell" each week and then come back here and add the permalink for the post via the Mr. Linky feature (not your blog's main url--use the permalink for your specific Show and Tell post).
- Oh, and then the point is that you click through all of your classmates and see what they are showing this week. And everyone loves a good "ooooh" and "aaaah" and to be queen (or king) of the playground for five minutes so leave them a comment if you can.
- Did you post a link and now it's missing?: I reserve the right to delete any links that are not leading to a Show and Tell post or are the blogging equivalent of a spitball.
