My First Vlog: The Accent Game

So I caved and did my first vlog. What's a vlog? A video blog! I really didn't want to include this as a part of my blog, I hate listening to my own voice on our answering machine - nevermind broadcasting it on here! But, a lot of blogger friends were doing "The Accent Game" as I explain in the vlog and just have a look... I hope that the volume is okay, I had to have it cranked on my laptop but could hear it fine when I did that! (P.S. Out of the 3 screen shots I had to choose from to display as the "still" before the video starts...that was the best. How lovely!)

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

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
