firsts on the first....

 I usually do a "Memories of Firsts on the First" post on the first day of each new month, but today I'm doing something different.  It is still a "first" and probably one day it will be a memory of a first (hopefully a good one!) ;-)
Today, I am posting my first (and possibly only) vlog.
There has been a fun little chain going around the WWW of "Accent Vlogs" where bloggers make videos of themselves saying certain things so you can hear the differences in their accents. 

And now for your viewing pleasure (ha!) 

My first Accent Vlog on the first of September....
ps - let me preface it by saying:
1.  my hair is a hot mess....and I did actually brush it this morning.
2.  Despite what my shirts says, I am not a GC&SU alumni, and I believe that there is possibly baby drool on my shoulder.
3.  Please, please don't laugh too hard (I'm sure my family will laugh enough for all of us!) ;-)

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 then 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?

    Happy September 1st, friends!
