My Southern Accent

So, Make Mine a Mojito's most recent post reminded me that while in Los Angeles last month, several of my co-workers said every time they hear this commercial, they think of me. I only deal with a lot of them on the phone, so they get to hear me quite often. I hadn't yet seen it, but I have now.

Personally, I don't think my accent is this bad - I mean, I don't sound like Britany or anything...I don't think...do I????

Now y'all know where I got my blog name from. I wasn't kidding. And I'm getting a Flip camera for Christmas, so maybe I'll really let y'all hear what I sound like in 2010 so you can get a chuckle.

  3. Haha - this commercial always makes me laugh!

    I didn't think my accent was that bad compared to some I know. Then I heard myself talking on a recording I made at Thanksgiving. I'm definitely southern. My mom says it's gotten more pronounced since I moved to Tennessee.

  4. Whatever...they're just jealous that they don't have a southern drawl. :)

    I guess that not too many Southerners make their way to the West coast. I have family in Oregon and when I was visiting the last time, every one I ran into was just so fascinated with my Southern accent. LOL

  11. I live in Cali right now, but we are southern born and bred. People say that commercial reminds them of me all the time. I tell them that they are not funny!

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
