Last week a lot of my blog peeps (*waves*) did a dialect vlog so you know I had to do one too. Gotta keep up with the Joneses, don’t ya know? The premise is you pronounce a list of words and answer some questions which should reflect where you’re from. Here are the words and 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
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?
And….here’s me (Isn’t that screen shot such a super attractive picture…bah. What are you going to do?)

Sorry my accent isn’t that exciting 😛
Would you ever do a vlog? Or if you have, would you do it again? Are you surprised at what I sound like?
