though i’ve lived most of my life in minnesota i don’t have a minnesota accent. not really. not as far as i can tell. i have some idioms i say that are totally minnesotan: duck, duck, gray duck (duck, duck, goose). ish (gross). rambler (ranch-style home). bagel (rhymes with haggle).
i recently stumbled upon this adorable blog, talia christine. in one of her posts she does an accent vlog, which, coupled with this week’s trip to the land of 10,000 lakes (at least 15,000 actually) inspired me to do the same. i’m totally nervous bc i don’t typically make videos of myself ever (i so, so cringe when i hear my voice on my iPhone videos) and jp was reading on the couch behind me so i had some extra stage fright.
so what do you think? do i sound minnesotan?
also, i really hope i’m pronouncing talia’s name right. wouldn’t that be ironic if i wasn’t.
thrifty thursday will return next week with ways to save on shaving. hip hip hooray!
