"Let's Call the Whole Thing Off"

(by Harry Connick, Jr.) Let's Call the Whole Thing Off - When Harry Met Sally... (Music from the Motion Picture)



I saw this on Brooke's blog & thought it looked fun! I've never done a vlog before, so please ignore the random things I do with my hands. I'll prepare myself better next time. I just knew that if I didn't do it right away, I'd never do it! I only did one take, and I didn't go back & fix anything. I think that's a BIG step for me (in letting go of insecurities & such)!

Anyways, I'm supposed to read a list of words & answer some questions. I was born & raised in Texas, but both major cities I've lived in/near are melting pots. So, I don't think I have a true Texas accent, but YOU be the judge! Also, I'd love it if you played along!!



Here are the 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

& here are the 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 hope you enjoyed my first ever vlog. This was way more interesting than a Scrobbled Saturday, right?

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I don't think you have a particularly strong Texas accent either. I've been having so much fun watching everyone's accent vlogs. :)

I don't hear an accent at all! I was glad to know I am not the only one whose words vary depending on who you are with, what you are saying, or how you feel :) I actually grew up saying aunt "awnt" and still sometimes do, but try to avoid it because I know it's weird. I think it's only old northerners that still say it that way. Also I grew up saying Cement "sament", but here they say "see-ment" so that one varies too.

What a great topic for a vlog! I might have to do my own. I don't think you have an accent at all - you are very well-spoken. :)
