I’ve jumped on the bandwagon, participating in a meme that’s making its way around the blogs, and it’s all about accents!
Though I don’t think I have any accent at all, relative to the sweet sounds of the voice belonging to my favorite Jersey-girl and sis-tuh from ano-thuh mo-thuh
Snooks Liz, or the citified inflections coming from my New Yawker friend Patty, or the adorable vocality of one of my oldest friends, Dawn, who hails from the northern tip of West Virginia, I decided to go ahead and record this just for giggles. And you just might do that (giggle), a lot. You’re welcome.
I was joking when I said in my video that people were doing this so that others could make fun of their accent, OF COURSE. I really think it’s a fascinating experiment, and way better than some of the other memes that are going around. Seriously.
That said, I’m not above a little teasing. Especially because I don’t have an accent.
If you want to follow along or do the Accent Vlog yourself, here are the words/questions:
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
