October 4: Do I Have An Accent?

4 Oct

October 4: Post a video blog (vlog?) of the following (feel free to get your hubs in on this one):

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 use to change the TV channel?

I have so been waiting for this prompt! I can’t wait to you all animated and actually hear your voices…not to mention your various accents.

Fair warning: laptop light is extremely unflattering.

    I love that you got your hubs to do it!!! For some reason when I signed up it used my baking blog… I finally caught up today and made up for lost time.

    Ok, you and your husband are adorable! This prompt cracks me up.

      We try…I think we scale the line of annoying the crap out of each other and finding each other endearing πŸ™‚

    Yesssss… Look at you! You’re adorable. And you look/sound like a friend of mine from improv awhile back.

    I do not think you have an accent but I’m from D.C., so… I think it would be close to my accent if one exists.

    There’s a term for raining when it’s sunny?!? You learn something new every day. I am doing this one tomorrow when my jaw is a little less wonky.

      That’s really funny that you say that because you remind me of a friend that I went to school with.

    I have just taped mine, having watched yours though I am wishing I got Kitt involved, although I am not sure he would have said yes. I also think I should have recorded it in the local accent, which is Brummie, um, think Ozzie and Sharon. You two are just too cute. I wish more of your challenges were vlogs, it is so much fun.

    • Jenn October 4, 2012 at 12:18 pm #

      I might rearrange the list and try to add one more in. I just have to come up with a good idea. Can’t wait to watch yours!

    You two are so cute!

    I’m probably going to chicken out on this one because I have a phobia about being on video. Which is too bad for all of you, because I’ve been told that my Canadian accent is hilarious. πŸ™‚

    • Jenn October 4, 2012 at 10:55 am #

      NNNNOOOOO! I love a good Canadian accent! Ay πŸ™‚

    Oh, you bet your ass I’m joining in on this one! I’ll post later today. You guys are sooo cuuuute. I should get my grandmother on the phone, as she has the strongest Baltimore accent you’ve ever heard.

    • Jenn October 4, 2012 at 10:33 am #

      Ha! I can’t wait to see it! You should totally get her on the phone. I would die!
