My voice, blog voices vblog meme


Leila from the Three Dresses Project just posted this vlog meme, My Voice. I thought it was really cool. I’m trying new things these days so I decided to give making a video a try. While my microphone works just fine with Skype it seems to be deficient when I use Movie Maker.

First here is the list of 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

The questions are as follows:

  • 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?

If anyone can tell me the word for the penultimate question, I would really be grateful. It’s a puzzlement to me.

Now for my video, it is my first and I promise you the next one will be much better.

  1. How nice to hear your voice and see your pretty face all animated–after reading your words for so long.

  2. So fun to here what you sound like! I will probably be joining the meme (oh the peer pressure, hehe) when I have the time to figure out the posting to YouTube. Hopefully, this weekend.

    • Thanks Brooke,
      The most frustrating part was getting the microphone to work. I noticed that the seems to be a common problem with the other blog voices. Since I was doing it in the wee hours of the night I didn’t want to project my voice too much. The mic worked fine with my Skype account.

      I am looking forward to seeing your video and hearing your voice too!


  3. What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?

    The answer is “sun shower”. At least that’s what we’ve always called it. The sun is shining, yet there is a light sprinkling of rain.

  4. Hi Beverly,
    This is my first vlog post, so I have yet to explore the full potential of this media. I hope to be able to do some tutorials with it.

    I do have several sewing projects on my blog under the sewing category. When I ported over the 800+ posts from my old blog, some of my categories got muddled but I am sorting all that out as I go.


  5. Will you be also doing some fashion photos of yourself or is this just a talk blog
