Thank you. Also, I vlogged.

This morning, I woke up to a bunch of tweet saying "Congratulations!!". Being slightly brain addled at stupid o'clock in the morning (okay, FINE. It was 9am. I'm unemployed!), it took me a while to work out that I've been voted 20SB's featured blogger of the month! There's a possibility that I Kermit flailed with excitement while still in bed.

So to honour the occasion, I vlogged. You're welcome.

And I'd very much like to thank Youtube for selecting the most flattering screenshot of all time. *sigh* (Oh, and contrary to appearances, I'm not actually a vampire. I just get sunburnt and then go back to being the palest person on the planet.)

Here's the accent vlog details:

Say this:
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

Answer these:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that curls into a ball when you touch it?
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 use to change the TV channel?


Oh, and I also wanted to tell you guys that I thought of a category I left out of my crazy-people-at-the-gym list last week. (I said it in my first attempt at the vlog, and then completely forgot to mention it subsequently. Oh well....) Anyway, the category I left out was this:

The Woman Who Refuses to Bring a Handbag
I witnessed this the other day. She had her keys, her phone, her gym membership card, and I have no idea what else SHOVED DOWN THE FRONT OF HER BRA. Quite how she exercised while being stabbed in the boob by her keys I will never know.

So thank you again to everyone who voted for me, and I hope you enjoyed my awkward talking-with-my-hands vlogging. I love you guys a butt load.

PS. Thanks to everyone on Twitter for persuading me to actually post this vlog <3

  1. Congratulations! How awesome is that?! I'm sorry I'm late to the party. This 6 degree weather is not fun. It really is great seeing/hearing the blogger behind the blog. Hopefully we'll get to meet later this month. I hope you do more vlogs, you look and sound great on camera. Again, well done. Hope you and Deidre celebrate with a special dessert day! <3

    1. It is rather! Although I'm still slightly puzzled as to how I ended up getting the post votes!

  3. 'Toilet', 'New Orleans' - I am going to have those two words going round and round in my head all day :)
    Congratulations!

  4. Congratulations! Your blog is one of my new favourites and I always enjoy reading your posts, so this honour makes plenty of sense. :)

    1. :) Every time I recorded it, I'd have a tiny little mental blank about what your blog was called. And then I'd panic about whether I had the words in the right order or not. But apparently checking and writing it down would have been too much like hard work!! ;)

  8. 1. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
    2. I love you. You are adorable.
    3. I *know* that you're from Australia, but for some reason, I never hear the accent in my head when I read your stuff... so... -1 for me and +100 for vlogging.

    1. 1. Thank you!!
      2. Double thank you. Also, right back at you.
      3. Hahahahahahaha, awesome. I did contemplate putting on a really over the top Mick Dundee accent for part of it, but that seemed like hard work...

  9. Happy Dance for YOU! Woo woo!
    Kermit flail? I think I'm in love with you.
    AND OH MY GOSH I TOTALLY DO THE WHITE-RED-WHITE DANCE WITH MY SKIN TOO! Tanning will never be in my future.

    1. Thank you!! And I'm currently peeling like a leper from a very minor case of sunburn on Australia Day. It's really attractive...

  10. YAY 20SB FEATURED BLOGGER!!!!!!!!!!! :D Also, I'm the same as Gina. I know you're from Australia, but I never imagine you with an accent as I read your posts. So this was exciting! I might do this myself because I have a weird voice. Everyone down here in Missouri says it's because I have a thick Chicago accent, but even in Chicago people are all "you speak weird, are you from New York?" So I feel like this could be fun.

    1. Maybe it's your love of musical theatre that gives you a little New York twang? ;)

  11. Congrats again! You are awesome! This was fun to listen to. Well, watch, I guess, but I think the point was listening to how you say things :) Is it just me or did you say "pancakes" instead of "pajamas"? I couldn't tell if it was just the way you said it or if you still had syrup on the brain, haha.

    Now that I know what you sound like (I mean, I know I met you in person at the 20SB Summit but it was at that cocktail hour when it was RIDICULOUSLY loud and I couldn't hear anything), I can go back and read your posts from when you were in Chicago and had to tell everyone the correct way to pronounce things ;)

    You rock!

    1. OH MY GOD, I TOTALLY SAID PANCAKES. That's embarrassing... I suspect it's because I spell it 'pyjamas', and so when a word starting with 'pa' followed the word 'syrup', my brain filled in the blanks. FAIL...

    2. I noticed this too!!! I was even going to make a really stupid joke about how your accent REALLY messed that word up. Doh.

      Delete
    3. Haha, totally understandable with the different spellings! And Gina, glad I'm not the only one who noticed this... I didn't see any other comments about this and thought I was just hallucinating.

  12. Congratulations! That's so exciting!!

  13. I love your accent! I always wonder what I sound like through other people's ears! haha
