My Accent Vlog!

Liz from This Full House posted a video blog, or vlog, with a list of words and questions to show her Jersey accent.  I decided to play along.  The following is my vlog and the list of words and questions follow...

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 (I added cool, school, pool)

  • 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 youcall 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 with?
  • (the one I added) What are the things you put on your legs when wearing a dress?
This was fun and now that I have this vlogging thing figured out, look out...I'll be vlogging again soon!

HAH! You said "car-mull," and "pe-con!" Oh, and they're sneakers! We don't play much tennis, here in Jersey ;)

Liz@thisfullhouse said...

Oh, and I also call 'em pantyhose -- but, we don't wear them much here in Jersey, either :)

I read all of the text prior to watching the video. I knew I was going to get mentioned! The midwest is wearing off on you. Your schull and pull aren't as pronounced as they once were. You're never going to lose the cray-ON though!

@Melisa...I think I should take my show on the road...what do you think? ;)

@Liz...I don't play tennis either, nor do I exercise, that's why I wear TENNA shoes. ;) and are you saying I tawk funny? I was listening to that, I was thinking that the midwest was really rubbing off on me. Whenever I go 'back home' I notice their 'accents' a bit now.

I loved this. It was so cute and fun that I jumped on the bandwagon and did this meme too.

BTW, I am a friend of the fantabulous Melisa with 1S and that is how I found your vlog.

Dawn said...
