dialect video

Edit: For some reason original video is not all there (it's a couple minutes longer) so I've reuploaded it and it now has the full length video. If you watched the previous video and wanted to see the rest (I left you with a cliffhanger, ha!), just skip to 1:30.

After seeing Beca do this (and a couple other bloggers in the last couple weeks) I decided to jump on the bandwagon! You'll have to excuse my tragic bangs, that's what I get for doing this after going on my "power walk" this morning :)

If you do it too, comment here so I can see. I've found these really interesting, I love all the differences based on where we live...

My dialect video

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

Now 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?

This made me laugh. Whenever I try to record myself I freak out and forget what I want to say...Its like movie outtakes.

Oops, I just realized that it cut it off at 1:30. Flickr must have a limit. So I am reposting it via Blogger's uploader (If it ever finishes!)

OK, the new video is up. You can skip to 1:30 to see me answer the exciting questions! :)
