Accent Vlog

Happy weekend, darling readers!  I hope you're all enjoying a few days of downtime.  This week was a bit hectic at work for me - we had events on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights coinciding with the opening of two new plays - and so, although I love my job and my office and my colleagues, I was very glad to clock out on Friday evening.

I was inspired by Melissa over at Beantown Prepster to make an accent vlog hen I first got back from Berlin.  (Check out Karen's, too!)  I say in the video that I am going to ask Jon to do one as well, but he wasn't really comfortable with that, so you're going to have to settle for just me.  You'll hear the details in the vlog, but in case you're interested in making your own, see the words and questions below.  I'd love to know if you do your own - please do leave a comment so we can get to know you a bit better!

  1. I think we sound pretty similar, except I was surprised to hear you say aunt like aw-nt and paj-aw-mas!

    Too bad Jon won't let you post his - I'd love to hear his accent! I'm going to post my John's vlog today. Would be a fun comparison!

  2. Hah, fun :) I used to say New Orleans (like you) until I lived there for a year, now I say New Ahlins which I picked up from living there.

    And, I call rain/sun a sun shower...but I wonder what other people say!

    We should have drinks soon :)
