My Accent, Y'all!

My sister posted an accent Vlog and I'm totally fascinated by people's accents, so I thought I'd give it a go. . . well, with lots of reservations. I'm not a big fan of: a) hearing my voice on playback, b) the amount of chins in this video, c) the shape of my eyebrows, and d) my hair--it looks a hot mess. BUT I'm being brave and posting it anyway because it was authentic and totally caught a genuine moment of my twisted sense of humor and I didn't think it would work to try and re-create that. Disclaimers OVER.


Steal this idea for your own. Here's the deets:

 The instructions are to 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? (I added, what do you call your parents?) 
  •  What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?

Ummm, I was just getting on here to comment about how you and Amanda sound the EXACT same...but she beat me to it! Crazy! And y'all rub your noses the same too. Genetics...hmm! Strange stuff!
And, Courtney, Pintrest is awesome..however, there is a very good chance that you'll spend all of your actual free time to do any awesome projects that you find on there, looking at more awesome projects....it's addicting...
