So, first things first – No snow day yesterday. I’m pretty sure Wichita was the only city hit by the storm who refused to close schools/places of work or clear the roads. And I had to be at work early, so I left the house at 6:40 (to be there by 7:30). I ended up getting there at 7:40. It’s usually a 20-25 minute drive. Ridiculous. But here are more pretty snow pictures with some Paisley thrown in to make it better:
Ok, back to the point. I'm sure you noticed the title of my post, and yep, I’m jumping on the bandwagon. I’m always so intrigued by people with accents, so this dialog vlog idea was right up my alley. I’ll be honest, I don’t think there’s anything special about my voice or the way I say things since I’ve never lived anywhere other than Kansas, but I’ve loved hearing what everyone else sounds like (almost always different than what I expect!) so I’m joining in the fun.
To participate, all you have to do is make a video of yourself saying the following 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 then answering these questions:
- What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
- What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
- 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 change the TV channel with?
I hate hearing my own voice, so I can hardly believe I’m posting this. I feel like your first vlog post is always awkward, though, so oh well. I had to make the video while David was gone reffing or he would’ve made SO much fun of me. And Paisley was terrified when I started talking to myself. But anyway. Here it is! Don’t make too much fun of how many times I say ‘um’ – I lost so many points for that in the College Speech class I took in high school!
Hannah, Kelly, Katie (and hubby!), Jessica, and Jessica Lynn (and her hubby too!) and have all posted theirs, so go check them out! I can’t even tell you how much I love southern accents – So cute.
Let me know in the comments if you participate! I want to watch! And wasn’t I right? My voice is lame.
