Oh geez. I can’t believe I did this. I can’t believe I’m even posting this. Who am I? What is happening?
There is something about being in front of a camera (or generally just being the center of attention) that makes me feel like I am parading around in a thong in front of the Dali Lama. Center of attention = thong and Dali Lama. It’s the exact same thing. I hate it all to a very passionate degree. And I hate thongs too. No, I’m not talking about the flip-floppy shoes. But I hate those too.
So ok. I was acting weird. I mean, how could I NOT act weird. I have never, ever recorded a video of myself in all my 28 (almost 29) years.
Holy crap. I’m almost 29.
Please forgive me for the possibly unfavorable first impression you may form of me. I thought about doing the video ALL OVER AGAIN, but then decided that I absolutely could not stomach that a second time. Therefore, you are getting the very first try, the first attempt, the raw, painful CRAP that is my vlog. Ha.
So here I am, acting all weird and uncomfortable and everybody is going to hate me now, and nobody will ever read my blog again.
I thought about trashing all the work I did on this. I thought about tying the video to a cement block and sinking it in the East River. I thought about going to New York just to drown it viciously.
I’m really worried about this. Can you tell???
Oh poo. Here it is. Please be gentle……..
I’m so weird. Sorry that I put you all through that.
Did you notice all the fidgety hand movements?? Yep. Might as well have been wearing a thong. Aka: butt floss.
BTW….this short video took 3 hours to upload to YouTube. ??????
If you have an accent vlog, link back to it in the comments. They are fun to watch and I wanna see it. Or, if you feel so inclined, here are the INSTRUCTIONS (not rules) so you can record your own accent vlog.
The instructions are to say these 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
And answer these questions:
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 use to change the TV channel?
Will I ever vlog again????
Hmmm. I don’t know. I would have to have a REALLY good reason/plan/excuse.
I think after I tried it a few more times, I would get more comfortable with the process and I would act less weird.
I am such a socially inept hermit. And I’m totally okay with that.
My brain is in a vlog induced state of anxiety. I must go read a book now.
