Accent vlog

I'm not going to The Blathering (SADLY) but everyone's doing this accent vlog, so, you know, me too! Here we go. Notes: 1. I highlighted my hair, and yes I do show that off in the video. Do you like it? 2. I don't usually hold my head quite so still when talking, but I was trying to keep my face in the frame. 3. In the video I keep talking about needing to finish before my in-laws arrive, and they totally walked in two seconds after I finished. I win! 4. I should totally get Torsten to do one of these, because he has the best accent of all.

For the record, here are the prompts:

Say these words:
Aunt, route, wash, oil, theatre, iron, salmon, caramel, fire, water, sure, data, ruin, crayon, toilet, New Orleans, pecan, both, again, probably, spitting image, Alabama, lawyer, coupon, mayonnaise, syrup, pajamas, caught

And answer these questions:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that curls into a ball when you touch it?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you use to change the TV channel?



    You sound about as I expected. But I'm finding that's true of everyone with my own basic accent!

  2. I just have to say that I laughed out loud when you said that your house now was "not at all accent free." Maybe because you said it with such a straight face. :)

  3. I love this! The spider comment cracked me up and I totally agree!

  4. The best thing about your highlights is that with curly hair they'll look different every day!

    I totally enjoyed your vlog and you dont sound how I imagined you would. I did mine if you want to hear my accent:

  5. I like your voice! And I say vee-log too. We are right.

    I say Col-o-RAD-o, not Col-o-RAWD-o, in case you were wondering.

  6. I did mine too - you have a lovely voice! For some reason I imagined it deeper. Which, yes, I'll admit, is odd.


  7. Oh, your hair is lovely. I wish I had the patience for highlights. And your curls.


    This makes you seem like such a real person with a real voice who talks. That is my favorite part about this whole thing. :)

    Torsten should totally do one.

  8. Awesomeness! So nice to hear your voice. You inspired me to post one today!
