Vlog: Accent meme

My first ever vlog. I’m scared. I actually videoed this using my cell phone clipped to my laptop screen with a hair clip. How ghetto fabulous is that!? (Or maybe its brilliant?)

Accent meme, as I found it on Thin Spiral Notebook.

I did this in only two takes, and I refused to do a third. Yes, I stumble on my words at times, but its as good as its going to get. :)

What I read:

Read this list of words as you normally would say them

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

Read and answer each question

  1. What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
  2. What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
  3. What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
  4. What do you call gym shoes?
  5. What do you say to address a group of people?
  6. What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
  7. What do you call your grandparents?
  8. What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
  9. What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
  10. What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

Won’t you please play along??

  1. I can hear a little bit of Texas, it’s a sweet southern accent… but then I’m bias toward the south. When you said ‘oil’ and ‘Alabama’ I caught it. I thought it was funny that my northern friends who did this meme were surprised Alabama was on the list. People from the south truly pronounce it differently, maybe we just put the emphasis on different syllables.

    1. Oil is one word I can’t say differently. I used to say “water” with an accent, but I got teased so much about it that I made the conscious effort to change how I said it. Alabama surprised me a LITTLE, but not much. Pecan is a word that’s a pet peeve of mine. I usually go into a rant about Pecan Tree being the Texas state tree so I obviously know the proper way to say it. ;) LOL!!!

      This was so much fun, though. I’m still slightly o_O that I did it. But I’m REALLY glad I did. I’ve wanted to venture towards the occasional vlog, and this was like wading into the kiddie pool. I’m hoping to get an actual web-cam in the next week (to video chat with hubs) and that might spur me to do more. We’ll see!!!

      Thanks so much, by the way, for doing yours as well. Loved it and of course had to copy!

    1. LMAO!!! I over think it, and was going, “But I say that word both ways. Like Route I say one way when I talk address and another way when I give directions!” I cheat, I cheat!

  2. OMG You are so cute. I love your Texan speach. LOL I have to say thought that it’s not that bad I understood everything you said, and some times with other people you can’t. You should do more vlogs. ;)

    1. Awww.. thank you!! I’m tempted to start adding vlogs here and there. We’ll see! I definitely need a better webcam. Took me an hour to figure out how to set up the cell phone to stand up right, then to angle it so it wasn’t cutting off my head or pointed too much to the ceiling. LOL!!! Anyway, thanks so much!!! Makes me feel better about doing this. I was a little wigged out when I woke up today going, “Did I do that? Really??”
