My Non-Accent Accent Vlog

Let the record reflect that I generally do not abide vlogs. I enjoy reading & writing, and I generally hop on the internet to read your brilliance & plagiarize it as best I can versus watching videos.

That being said, I'm hugely enjoying these accent vlogs started over at Jenna's Journey, particularly you Southerners with that dra-a-aaawl & Jersey-ites with that, well, Jersey who deny you have an accent at all. Kittens, *this* is what a non-accent accent sounds like, by way of a Southern California upbringing and some six years in Central Texas.

Please note in the comments not only my lack of an accent but also my striking resemblance to Grace Kelly neveryoumind the terrible roots. Also, remember back when I was an "anonymous" blogger who mostly talked about shoes instead of myself & my child? Me neither.

The vlog "rules":

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?

I have to say, as a Canadian, even the "non-accent" bloggers have accents ;) I'm loving this vlogging phase -- might have to do one myself.

okay you win the non accent accent contest. least accent out of everyone. but i might have to send you up "north" to dallas so my mom can teach you some phrases.... so you'll feel like a native and such.

oh, and... you sound exactly like i expected.. and exactly like what i think i sound like (?) (so we really all think we have no accents?)

Cari Leigh said...

You don't have much of accent which is what I think about my vlog but others not so much...

Nice to hear you!

Amy @ Forever 29 said...

What do ya know...no accent ;-) Still hilarious live...cheers to your pinot!

Rachel said...

Great vlog - and you're right, I didn't hear much of an accent at all! :)

Belle on Heels said...

ok holy SH*T. We are twins. Literally. I never noticed it in pics you have posted but when I saw this video, I was like, who the hell posted a video of me? Scary. Great blondes look alike? Either way, nope, I don't hear an accent at all!

Danielle said...

Well, you're totally cute.

Perfectly Imperfect said...

okay so you don't have an accent per se, but I still think NOT having one is still sort of having one right? Does that make sense? And... You are the only blogger so far who kind of sounded like I expected!

Kate said...

haha I think we said pretty much everything the same... even the bug questions! Well, except for the grandparent question.

THE Stephanie said...

Love it!! And no, I don't think you have an accent either :)

Lisa @ Trapped In North Jersey said...

you don't have an accent. Or, you sound how I think I sound :-)

I would do one of these except...I don't think I have a camera thingy on my computer? And I would also have to do my hair and put on makeup.

Lulu said...

SO fun to see your sweet face again! I totally loved this! I think Master P needs his own vlog next ;) xoxo

Tess said...

I agree with you, no accent there. Not surprising, as I am a fellow West Coaster, so I believe myself to not have an accent either. I tested it out with a summer in Upstate New York this year and yep - no accent compared to everyone else.

However, as an Oregonian, I will keep the Oregon-California battle over the name of carbonated beverages alive: It's Pop!

Tess said...

I also feel compelled to say - I am highly amused by how many vlogs include comments about they don't have an accent. But I disagree, and the vowels give it away!!!

I am so glad you posted this. I literally just debated with friends about the LACK of accent that we have! It's hard to explain but compared to many other places we do not have accents! it is seriously a lack of an accent! I understand that to foreign people we have accents (duh) BUT the California accent is so flat and really a non-accent.

SNEAKERS! I cracked up at your answer to "What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?" HA! Too funny

Sassafrass said...

I don't detect any accent whatsoever. :) I love watching these videos! The consensus on me thus far is that despite my Georgia roots, no accent present here either. Whew. 

Mrs. R said...

This looks like fun. I will have to join in. You will have to put me in the Southern drawl category. LOL!! 

Mrs. R said...

You don't have an accent by the way!! You would make a great anchor woman! LOL!!!

I'm so happy you said "sneakers." No one else said that and I thought I was all alone! Sorry I'm commenting so late - and this video made me miss you. Looking forward to next week. :)
