A few observations before I post these videos though. First, I make tons of faces as I talk. People that know me - do I always do that or is this just a product of my oral presentation jitters? If I do always do that - Is that annoying? Because I was almost annoyed at myself watching them back. Sheesh. What's wrong with a normal face, Lacey?
Next, look out for a secret Charley appearance in the first video. She was napping in the Boppy on the couch behind me, and her little foot kicks out from under her blanket around the one minute mark. Look out for it right above my left shoulder. She's such a show stealer, that one.
And finally, between the two videos I had to attend to Miss Fussypants. The time elapsed was about one minute long. And how did I calm her down so quickly? Well, I stuck her on a boob. And then did the second part of the vlog. Yes, I vlogged while breastfeeding. And yes, I did manage to keep any boob shots out of the picture. Whew. I'm quite impressed with my multitasking these days, myself.
Anyways, here were the rules of the vlog. Apparently this little blog idea is floating all around the internet, but the only person I've seen do it is my very best e-friend Laura at The Diniwilks. She is fab! But I think you should do it too. Come onnnnn, it's fun!
Here are the rules:
Say the following words:
Aunt, route, wash, oil, theatre, 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 curls into a ball when you touch it?
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?
Here is part 1:
And then part 2...the boob part. Man, talking about my boobs on my blog seems to be all I do these days.
Edit: D'oh! Just watched this second video after it was posted and realized that Flickr cut off my video after a minute and a half! Boo! All I had left was the last question, to which I answered "remote" so you really didn't miss anything except maybe a couple more faces I made. And also you missed me asking all crazy Canadians to participate because I like their accents.
What do you think? Southern? Did I offend any Canadians by calling them crazy? Did I offend any "pop" sayers by saying you are WRONG? And also, what is the word for rain while the sun is shining? There is a word for that??
And lastly, because this question wasn't addressed and I feel that it needed to be, the name of this article of clothing on my head in this picture is a toboggan. A "winter hat," as some may call it, is just silly. Calling it a "winter hat" is basically like saying you don't have a name for it at all.
