Vloggers Unite!

If you follow at least 4 people, you've probably seen this "accent vlog" that has taken over the nets. I've never done a vlog (video blog) so I thought I'd give it a try.

Please excuse my outfit. It's "I worked 10 hours and am very sleepy" couture. You can find it in stores everywhere.

I don't actually know who started this phenomenon but I'm sure they're quite lovely. End of story: It was fun.

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 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?

Here we go! (By the way, I am cracking up with the still shot. Come on YouTube, help a girl out. If you don't watch this--and that is fine--please know that I don't normally look like the still shot. I don't think. Oh man...)

Awesome! But you definitely win. 1) You're set up...sort of off center to the camera, nice back ground, casually talking with the computer...very artsy:) and 2) Tping is called "grounded"....haha! funny!

Do more vlogs!!!

This made me miss you lots. And made me really want an Inspector Gadget T-shirt. My favorite line..."Good to see you guys....or for you to see me?" Ha.

Trish said...

Hasn't made it to the book bloggers so maybe I can start the trend there. ;) Too much fun! Think I'll have to do this as I love a good vlog.

Sun shower. :)

I also say words differently based on my mood. Route is one of those--the Route 44 from Sonic is different from the Route 66.

When I was little Coke was "pop." Now it's all Coke.

Ok, I could go on and on...but mostly I can't believe you don't say "y'all." Such a handy word! ;)

ha. i'm stupid i guess but have never heard of the ole vlogging...nice change of pace. :) and (maybe because we all are) but i don't feel like you sound southern at all for some reason! and it can't be b/c you moved b/c (if you remember) when i moved from dallas all yall made fun of me for my strong accent! so were is yours???!!! :) btw - i'm coming to dallas in a few weeks (which is why i asked about the h&m).

Candace said...

LOVE this!!! i am kind of obsessed with the vlogs! It is so fun to hear how someone sounds IRL ;) you are adorable :) have a great weekend!!!!

Laura said...

I love your vlog! (and the word vlog in general!) I'm with you and Trish in saying some words differently at certain times...route is this way big time. So is "apricot." And "often." I don't really think you have any kind of accent, but maybe that's because I know you? Anyways, this makes me sad that I don't see you every day anymore. I miss our lunchroom chats!

Laura said...

I definitely think you say the right southern words, but you really don't have a southern accent. I consider myself somewhat of an expert at hearing them now that I've spent 10 years in the Midwest! After this long, it shocks me when I even talk to my parents...I can hear every twang and extra syllable so clearly. Thanks for sharing...I hadn't seen this done!

I totally want to vlog! And I love yours! Maybe I'll get up the nerve to do it sometime! I've thought about it but then I'm like "oh no, the lighting is bad" or "I really dont feel like it b/c __, __, __.." I need to get on it! :)
