The Accent Dialect Vlog and My First Vlog

[The gang observes a video of a young, fat Monica getting ready for prom.]
Joey: Some girl ate Monica!
Monica: Shut up! The camera adds ten pounds!
Chandler: Oh. So how many cameras are actually on you? –Friends

Ok, here we go. This is my first every vlog. I’m nervous, I’m fidgety as hell, and I am in my sweats, sans makeup, at a weird angle so I look kind of puffy. Awesome. I also seem to have a lisp which I am blaming on the wine. Oh, and I drop my laptop at one point. I also say here we go a lot. And I look really shiny for some reason. And I call it a v-log and a vlog. Not sure what the right way to say it is. I showed the video to Match and he laughed hysterically and said, “Ok that was horrible. Why are you posting it?” Alright then. Enjoy!

Here is the assignment for The Monthly VLOG for April if you would like to play along. Be sure to let Mamarazzi and Shawn know I sent you if you do!

You start by 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, Antenna, Rootbeer, Ambulance, Museum, Milk, Orange, Apricot

THEN you answer the following 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?
Where do you buy your groceries?

The Show & Tell assignment is to show us your favorite room in your house.

    well that was cool…

    i definitely noticed dialect differences between the west and east coast πŸ™‚ it’s funny how in different areas we all say the same word so differently.

    Seriously Shawn

    A glass of wine in hand…I love you already!

    We say everything the same except apricot and maybe data, I’ll have to go listen to mine again.

    I love TPing, I took my daughter for the first time cuz I’ a cool Mom like that!

    I’m glad you caved to the peer pressure, it was fun!

    Angel

    fire water, fire-water I laughed at that part, caving to peer-pressure is fun isn’t it? I combined pop and soda I say soda-pop

    Aww..you are so adorable!!!! I loved your vlog! Why didn’t I drink during mine!? Crap. That would have helped the awkwardness.

    You made me laugh! My fav part was dropping the laptop! LMAO!!!

    Good job my friend! xoxo

    shortmama

    Love that you had your wine with you! I should have made myself a rum and coke for mine!

    Xazmin

    Okay, I tried to comment and it wouldn’t let me!

    I love your vlog!

    And I think we say everything the same…so yeah, I totally don’t think you have an accent!

    Also, I am petrified of spiders as well, but not daddy long legs so much.

    Jessica

    Aww, you are so cute! It’s so cool to put a real voice behind your online voice. Love it! I used to say pop, too, because I’m from Buffalo. But in NC everyone calls it soda!

    Mamarazzi

    Amy Blackham

    Ooo I might have felt less nervous if I had a few glasses of wine first πŸ™‚

    It’s fun to see you and hear you kinda in person!

    Vivienne @ The V Spot

    I love that by the end of the video it is a Vee-log. Cheersh to you to your my new besh fren… an I’m following…

    Conni

    wow good for you, I am way to scared to vlog, not brave at all, mind you with a good glass of wine…..

    I think you did a great job for your first time

    Thanks for sharing

    Erin

    Lol a drinking game with your UMS! Too cute! Gosh I can’t remember the last time I had a glass of wine, drink some for me. Oh and do it in your PJJS! I love that word!

    Jennifer

    Cute vlog! I should have drank a glass of wine before I did mine.

    jennykate

    You are adorable!

    So, Impulsive puts peer pressure on you too?! Glad I’m not alone. πŸ™‚

    PJay jays…I love it. That’s my new term.

    You have ZERO accent!

    Loved this!

    nadine

    Rolly polly! Haha we call them caterpillars! The questions were fun to listen and see how your answers were different than mine would be. Rolly Polly was the only thing I noticed to be a major difference! And we definitely call it pop here in Canada! I noticed when I was in Oregon a few years ago that there wasn’t a lot of difference in dialect between Oregon and my province.

    SaraJo

    Hey, I’m in Oregon! I grew up in Washington though. So I guess I’m a transplant. LOL!
    I hate that we don’t have accents. Just good ol’ plain jane. LOL!
    And I totally thought he was playing COD. I hear that a lot around my home too. LOL! Sorry, if my hubby was making your man swear. LOL! Mine does that too when playing. LOL!

Your comments make my day!
