The 78th Circle Time: The Show and Tell Weekly Thread

Show and Tell is wasted on elementary schoolers. Join several dozen bloggers weekly to show off an item, tell a story, and get the attention of the class. In other words, this is Show and Tell 2.0. Everyone is welcome to join, even if you have never posted before and just found out about Show and Tell for the first time today. So yank out a photo of the worst bridesmaid’s dress you ever wore and tell us the story; show off the homemade soup you cooked last night; or tell us all about the scarf you made for your first knitting project. Details on how to participate are located at the bottom of this post.

Let’s begin.

Wishes for 11/11 certainly aren’t closed, keep adding them, but it’s time for Show and Tell too.  Class, come to order.  You, in the back, spit out your gum.

This week, Serenity was in town, so Somewhat Ordinary (she’s invite only) came up and Lindsay and I went downtown (well, I went downtown later and only joined the threesome for lunch).  It was chaotically wonderful, especially because the last time I saw Serenity, she hadn’t conceived Owen yet and Lindsay wasn’t parenting (despite reading Somewhat Ordinary since her blog began years ago and despite the fact that we live somewhat close-ish, this was our first time getting to actually be face-to-face!).  And it just amazes me what can happen in two years.

The Fantastic Four

On a different blogger note, Kristin told me to expect some packages in the mail and I was a little confused.  When they arrived, I opened them and started crying at the generosity.  Kristen, Cassandra, Wiseguy, Dora, and Mrs. Spock put together a package of holiday ornaments.  My kitchen table was covered in a sea of blue.  Thank you so much–this meant the world to me.


What are you showing today?

Click here or scroll down to the bottom of this post if this is your first time joining along (Important: link to the permalink for the post, not the main url for your blog and use your blog’s name, not your name. Links not going to a Show and Tell post will be deleted). The list is open from now until late Friday 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 Wednesday night (or any time between Wednesday morning and Friday night), 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 Wednesday night and closes on Friday 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.

Good to be with people who you really get along with…

Well, I am so glad that I could do something, Mel…and it is all because of Kristin’s novel idea…I am glad you loved the ornaments….Now what I will really love is to have them up on your holiday tree…we would want a pic, okay?

Wow those ornaments are amazing. I love the butterfly. How wonderful that you all have forged such a great bond.

9 Orodemniades { 11.12.09 at 12:00 am }

A bit of floral for the coming holiday season.

10 Orodemniades { 11.12.09 at 12:01 am }

Sorry, forgot to add the new web adress in the comments.

I am tired.

Wow to the ornaments… they look fab.

12 Bea { 11.12.09 at 4:38 am }

Cool ornaments, guys! And nice pic of the group there.


13 WiseGuy { 11.12.09 at 8:45 am }

There has to be a few non-blue things there too! 🙂

14 Kim { 11.12.09 at 10:30 am }

That make a wish post of yours yesterday held some power, methinks. Shortly after I commented and passed it on I got the call…and the job! A week after they poromised to let me know one way or the other.

That butterfly ornament is beautiful! Serious sweethearts!

15 Jen { 11.12.09 at 10:35 am }

cool ornaments ( i see a menorah as well?)

16 Justina { 11.12.09 at 11:05 am }

Cool ornaments! Love the colors.

I apparently am dumb today and entered my name twice on the show and tell list above. Oops.

17 Bionic Baby Mama { 11.12.09 at 2:16 pm }

Nice to think about how much can happen in two years….

If Sugar Mama was in charge, our tree would always be classily monotone. She better not see those ornaments….

18 Baby Smiling In Back Seat { 11.13.09 at 3:36 am }

Glad you are enjoying the package!
I should be thanking you: I had so much fun making the teensy flames for that hanukkiah, seriously.

19 mrs spock { 11.13.09 at 12:19 pm }

Kristin deserves the most credit. She was the idea generator and the Grand Poobah of collecting…So glad you liked it! Now, I can’t wait to see pics of the finished product!
