by Monday, February 21, 2011


If you’re interested in following along (or doing this on your own blog!), here’s the list:

The Accent Vlog: 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

•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?

Do I sound how you expected me to? What’s one word that you’re told you pronounce funny?

    Haha, too funny!!! I so need to do this. I am so proud, you pronounced New Orleans right!!

    BTW, the bug that curls into a ball when you touch it is a doodle bug, but I have also heard people call them rolly polly’s. I guess you guys don’t have those up there.

    i loved this!!! i tried doing a blog today but my sites not working right. gotta get my boyfriend to fix it for me!

    Anyways, i loved this! You have the same accent I had before i went through 4 years of voice training! Born in Canada, the “ou” combination is a tricky one! We always get tagged for that, saying we say it funny, when i think its everyone else.
    and that bug? I call it a roly poly. i’ve heard people call it a pill bug? harmless lil things that my cat plays with in the garden.

    anyways, nice vlog, well done! and i dont think you talk funny at all ;)

    You say route and coupon wrong. haha It’s pop, not soda. The bug is a rolly polly bug. Never knew there was a special name for when the rain falls and the sun is shining.

    I love this, and I’m copying you! (as usual). You do talk a little funny, but I’m sure I do, too. I have just a hint of my New England accent still in me (mostly when I talk fast or am REALLY mad) and then 20+ years in California, so it’s a little mixed up.
