I did what?

I Vlogged... I did.

I have been watching some "accent' vlogs this evening and being a sheep thinking its adorable, I thought I would do my own. I really don't know if I have an accent or not, so I need you to tell me! Here you go... Keep in mind that it is now 1AM and I am surviving on Coke Zero and Trident Gum this evening. I look a little scary. Oof. Be nice, please & thank you :) xoxo

ENJOY!

The instructions are to say these words:

Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, 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 called that when you touch it, it curls into a call
    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 so you call the wheeled contraction 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 change the TV channel with?

I didn't think you had a super strong accent but you DEFINITELY drawl your "i"s and they are so cute! you don't sound anything like I expected though! Crazy! and you kind of remind me of Rachel McAdams... hmm.

jenny collier said...

You are darling! I called it soda also...everyone I know calls it pop. :)

Ashley Paige said...

HAHA.. i love how you said "toilet." Meg is totally right. You reminded me of Rachel McAdams, too! I can't believe I did a V-log either.. I sound like I'm 5. You definitely have a little twang but it's so cute!!

Kodi said...

You sound just a liiiiiiiiiitle bit like you have a drawl, but only a little. :) You're adorable!

Alyssa said...

Neat! You definitely have a bit of an accent, but that's compared to how we talk in Southern Illinois!

Allena said...

I would say you have a slight southern accent which is what I consider for myself (except, of course, after a few drinks and then it's THICK too!). You really consider OK the Midwest? I'd say it's still part of the South.

Ashley said...

I heart you! I think you have more of a southern accent for sure! Also, this is the quietest I've ever heard you speak! :)

Hi! Stopping by from Jenna's Journey. I've really enjoyed everybody's vlogs! So fun! And coming from a true southerner, you don't have an accent! :) Glad to have found your blog. Looking forward to following! Take care!

Cute vlog!! Loved it! You definitely have an accent, but it's different than a deep south kinda sound. It's super cute though! Oh, and we call shopping carts "buggies" down here, and "the devil is beating his wife" when the sun is shining while it's raining, haha...weird, I know : )

Jenna said...

So cute! I do hear an accent but it isn't strong! Loved this!

Carrie said...

You DEFINITELY have an accent! You say you'all and people in the Midwestern/Great Lakes do not say you'all! lol

Ashley said...

I think you have a little accent, but it's not strong at all!

Laura @ My Thoughts-Uninterrupted said...

I do think you have a bit of an accent. Very cute!

Sweet Simplicity said...

I love that one of your labels says dork. haha. You've convinced me to do this.

Sweet Simplicity said...

I just read through the comments. Yes, I'm bored. I love what Ashley wrote and totally agree with her! ha!

Dublas said...

Hi! These vlogs are really fun - I don't think you really have an accent. I was surprised to hear you say OK is Midwest, I'm from WI/MN and we are for sure the Midwest and often am told I have a "Fargo" accent.
The one question I feel like no one knows is about rain/sunshine - I think it's a sun shower. That's what we call it at least!!

Jane said...

I completely agree with Ashley and Lindsey! :)

Our Baby "D" said...

You definitely have a bit of a southern accent! Especially with "iron" :) It's so fun hearing everyone's voices vs. what we read! :)

Lynn said...

Enjoyed watching your vlog. I can hear an accent (drawl) but it's not strong one, but it's there. I liked your tidbit about your grandma that you called "bones"! Too cute. =) Poor grandma.

Nikki said...

I think you have a verrrrry slight accent - like when you say salmon, caramel, toilet, and coupon. But those ar the only ones I noticed...Otherwise, I think I say the rest of the words the same....or maybe I'm the one who has an accent! LOL

Definitely a cute vlog -- maybe I'll climb on board and try my own :)
