Be a Star CHALLENGE!

That's right time to be a star and share your voice with the world. Or at least this little tiny corner of the internet. Wink

You've all being challenged to take a minute out of your day this week to record your voice and laugh at each other's accents. :mrgreen:

You can use this free quick service by Vocaroo and share your link below or you can share a video of your voice.

Don't know what to say? Start with this!

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." ~Dr Seuss

Or this!

"You'll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. You'll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left." ~Dr Seuss

Or feel free to ramble to your heart's desire about anything.

(Oh, and Mona....you DO sound Canadian! :lol:)

That website doesnt work for me. I think you need a microphone on your computer and I clearly do not have one.

Oh, and I dont sound THAT Canadian!! I'll do a video soon to prove it! Lol

K I figured out how to use it, but it's very faint. I used headphones as a microphone.

Reading Teagan's favorite book! She was a little weirded out when I played it back to make sure I didn't sound like a complete dork. It's pretty loud, apparently my mic is sensitive.

Have you heard Anna in any of her videos? If not just wait for her to post. Lol Mine is fairly dormant (I talk to fast most of the time lol) until I drink. The more I drink the worse it gets. Blum 3

Jackie, DH just told me why me calling your accent Yankee was confusing. Because us Canadians refer to all Americans as Yankees, but Americans only refer to the northerners as Yankees. So yes, you totally have a southern accent! And I love it!!!

I guess we're all southerners to you, Mona! Jackie gets drunk and says weird stuff like "heee-all" instead of hill. She invents extra syllables. Wink

My DH has a distinct New Mexico accent when he's drunk or talking on the phone with a particular friend who I do not care for. Its not so bad but he pronounces the word dull like dole and it unnerves me.

I've said we should all meet up at Disney world in five years!

I suspect Jackie would stick an extra syllable in there somewhere. Maybe like baw-el.

My laptop is currently dead and DH's apparently doesn't have a microphone. I'll see if I can get mine working later

I have now listened to them all and:

Mona:Yes you do sound Canadian!!! It's nice though Smile

Erin:To me you just sound American. No particular accent. Nice and soft

Janice: Your voice is HOT Smile I could listen to you talk all day!!

Jackie: Totally southern Lol loving the twang Blum 3

I thought someone would say that. I don't know why but Americans seem to have a hard time understanding regional English accents Lol

I LOVE this!! I've listened to them all.

Mona= Canadian. Love it. Not like "Fargo" Canadian, but still very Canadian
Erin- You sound exactly what I thought you'd sound like! That's really cool.
Sarah- I barely understood you until I listened a 2nd time. I love English accents!
Jackie- bwahahaha! You yankee :bleh: I vote that we make you do another one when you're working on emptying your bottle of wine or SoCo.
Janice- I didn't pick up a lot of a Canadian accent in your voice. You speak so soft. I feel so loud compared to you Smile

Did I miss anyone?!

Okay, here it is Smile

The squeaking is the dog playing in the background LOL. I'm not normally a stutterer but I had to keep pressing my finger to my lip to tell DS to hush Smile Oh well, this is the 3rd time and I have a feeling that's the best I'm going to get before it gets uber loud in here.
