Doesn't everyone hate the way they sound?

I promised about a dozen people that I would do this, so here it is. Ignore the bags under my eyes, won't you?

So. How do I sound? Did I sound like you thought I would? I maybe should have had a drink of water before I started, but oh well. I will say that trying to talk quieter than usual helped me like it a little better. Some of the words were obviously hard for me since I can turn on my Memphis in about 1.2 seconds. Maybe someday I'll do it when I have heavy southern influences around me and you'll notice a BIG difference, guaranteed!

Here is the list of words and questions:

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
  • 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?
Have you been considering doing this? Make sure you link to your post here for me so I can come make fun of listen to you, too!

Oh, I just love it when you go all Southern in your speak (and, uh, yeah, you do) also, no one should look that good at eleventy-o'clock, just sayin :)

Great job! That was fun. Of course I do know how you sound like IRL :)

You sound just like you did back in college. What a treat it was to "hear" you again!

I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to do this; remember, my voice is extremely HIGH, and I've never really cared for it. Maybe I'll keep this on the back burner and if I get brave, maybe I'll post it this summer...
