The Accent Vlog



So, I saw this whatsit on Sarah Lena's blog, then on A'Dell's blog, and because I'm a joiner, I decided to do one too.

BE WARNED!! It ends rather abruptly at 5 minutes, because that's when I stopped talking about the actual real topic/assignment/whatsit--then I got all tangential and start rambling about Faire & our honeymoon... which has nothing to do with the actual assignment, so I cut those 2 minutes off the end, because they were totally superfluous. Anyway, the ending is not elegant, but it's better than the actual ending, where I burp. True story.

Also, I got sort of dressed up for this video. I'm wearing two shades of purple (one is much deeper than the other) and a necklace! oooohhhhh! Also, my fake hair, because my real hair was completely uncooperative.

So I ramble, and look around a lot, so you see quite a bit of the whites of my eyes... eye-contact is not m strong suit when talking to... a computer...

Also, I recorded this with J's Playbook, and I turned it sideways so you could see the top of my head & the fact that I was wearing clothes AT THE SAME TIME, so that's why it's all... funky...

Also, yeah... sadly, that screen shot there? That's EXACTLY what I look like. Some days I have bangs, when my hair is being cooperative.

Weird - to me it sounds like you have a Minnesota/North Dakota accent. Your "o"s are long. Maybe from your time on Nebraska?

Looking forward to meeting you in a few weeks!

@Jessica-- I can hear what you mean when I say "soda" and when I mock my husband ordering Coca Cola. I don't know where that comes from other than ephmasis?

@Tara-- my friends call this affliction "muppet face"
