    Ok, so I was tumbling (as usual) and came across the accent challenge. And I know a lot of us are from lots of different places (reppin' the lone star state!) and i thought it would be cool to see what kind of accents we all have!
    Pretty much, you record yourself saying these things:

    Your name and username and where you’re from.

    PRONOUNCE THE FOLLOWING WORDS

    Aunt, Roof, Route, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminum, GIF, Tumblr, Crackerjack, Doorknob, Envelope, GPOY.

    QUESTIONS:

    What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?

    What is a bubbly carbonated drink called?

    What do you call gym shoes?

    What do you call your grandparents?

    What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?

    What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

    Choose a book and read a passage from it.

    Do you think you have an accent?

    Be a wizard or a vampire?

    Do you know anyone on BnB in real life?

    I did this for tumblr, so the last question is different. I know one BnB girl in real life haha. Here's my recording:
    Lauren LaRee's Accent Challenge!

    How many of you will post a video or recording? :)

    I downloaded Audacity and used my mic, and then exported the file as an mp3 and uploaded to my tumblr. Lots of people use youtube and post videos.

    Choose a book and read a passage from it.
    "It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now; so he shall never know how I love him: and that, not because he's handsome, Nelly, but because he's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same; and Linton's is as different as a moonbeam from lightning, or frost from fire."
    Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights
