Accent Vlog

Jenna posted an Accent Vlog link-up on her blog and I thought it looked fun so I thought I'd do an accent vlog too. It's fun to hear what everyone sounds like! You should link up too!  I grew up in Northern Ohio (close to Michigan) and I always thought I didn't have an accent until I went to college in Kentucky and everyone asked me if I was from Michigan. Guilty! Guess I was extremely northern sounding.  Now that I have lived in Kentucky for 12 years, I hear the northern accents when i go back home. And my friends from home make fun of me because I sound so country.  Some of the things I say are very northern and some are southern now.  My husband is southern through and through so I'm pretty sure he's rubbed off on me!  Here is my Accent Vlog (Please excuse my appearance. I've been up since 5:30am, worked 8 hours, played with Adalyn and made baby food tonight, so I'm looking rough but if I didn't tape this tonight I knew I never would!):

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?
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?

Link up your Accent Vlog to Jenna's blog party!!

I think you sound a lot like me- I'm from Missouri. I didn't detect Northern at all!

That was fun! I feel like I know you even better now. :) By the way, Adalyn is one of the cutest little girls ever...

Visiting from Jenna's. I can totally pick up the northernness especially in "Pop" and "Hey guys!" lol. I've lived in the south all my life though so maybe it's not so obvious to others!
