That’s so funny – you say so many words the same as me…I’m Canadian, so I don’t know what that means…haha.

I SAY “ROON” TOO! I thought I was alone. My boyfriend also thought it was weird and didnt say anything for the longest time. He still chuckles whenever I say it.
January 31, 2011 at 9:31 pm
This was fun! I like the “cucaracha stompers”. Hilarious!
also, the question about the shopping cart…in the south, a lot of people say “buggy”. It is something I still battle with and struggle not to say so others won’t tease me..haha.

I totally say ruin “wrong” too – and I was born and raised in Southern CA so maybe that’s the reason?? I didn’t even realize I said it wrong until watching this – no one has ever mentioned it to me.
This is great! I posted mine on Saturday… I live in Chicago but was born and raised in Alabama. It’s comical to say the least. ….and it’s totally a buggy!!!

It is amazing how differently people say the same word. This is the 5th accent vlog I have seen, so now I definitely have to do one

I definitely say ruin the same way you do. That’s how everyone around me would pronounce it growing up. I also call the rollie pollie’s potato bugs instead. And of course, pop instead of soda.
The thing I find interesting is what people call the device you drink water out of when you are at school or the gym.
I’ve also noticed that people in Washington often will pronounce the ‘x’ sound for words that are an ‘es’. For example, especially and espresso. Drives me bonkers.

I’ve never heard of a potato bug!

A shopping cart is called a carriage in New England.

This was funny! Hearing ‘chanclas’ and the other words en espanol is not something I say as I somehow lost Spanish while growing up but it did remind me of my family.
January 31, 2011 at 11:25 pm
I also say “Chanclas” or “cholas”
January 31, 2011 at 11:40 pm
My family in New England calls shopping carts buggies… and my old roommate was from Memphis and he calls them “baskets”. I used to get irritated going to the store with him sometimes because he’d say, “we have to grab a basket” so I’ll go to grab one of the little carrier baskets and he’ll come walking up with a cart. lol
I noticed in one of your Ask a Monican videos the way you say guacamole like “guac-a-mole-a” – I totally say it like “guac-a-moley” lol
February 1, 2011 at 1:11 am
I try to say it more normal for the blog, but I really pronounce it starting with a “w” like “waca-mo le”.

You sound EXACTLY like one of my co-workers. It’s tripping me out!

You sound different than I thought!
February 1, 2011 at 1:13 am
How did you think I was going to sound?

When it’s raining and the sun is shining in Georgia you say the Devil is beating his wife. I personally hate that saying and it always confused me as a child!

this is great! and i love how you say words like quesadilla and taquito with a spanish accent! i have friend who does that when he goes to taco bell and it confuses the heeelll out of the poor middle-eastern people who run the place!

This is so fun, I’ve got to tell ya, that as a Southerner who spent a few years living in Orange, CA, I got the strangest accent for awhile. One guy I worked with a year or so ago came up to me and asked me if I was from Philly, PA!!
Just a note – what the heck is “buggy” about? It must be a deep south thing, no one in North Carolina says “buggy” to describe a shopping cart. Since moving to northern Florida I’ve noticed a different type of south I’m used to…
hahaha I love it!! I’m so glad you said it!! And that is so funny because my best friend says rooned, too, and my dad used to give her such a hard time about it!! You were crackin me up with that story!
February 1, 2011 at 1:42 am
Lol, I think you’re one of the few people besides my Grandma (who I call Gramm) and one of my uncles, who has used the word “chonies”. Of course, I live near Pico, so yeah XP
February 1, 2011 at 5:55 am
Me and your Gramm should hang out and talk chonies
February 1, 2011 at 2:08 am
ahah this is great!! You are adorable!! Very interesting vlog

I call everything thats soda- coke, a remote control is the clicker, i call a cart at the grocery store a buggy. The devils beating his wife is when its raining with the suns out.:) I have developed the weirdest accent now that I moved from the south to Colorado.

“What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?”… uh, Florida!
Hahaha! Oh if only.
Cucaracha Stompers! LOVE IT!

Going to do this when I get home…beware of the Canadian who has been surrounded by Americans for 8 years and currently lives in Japan

I grew up in Pico Rivera, too! Did you attend El Rancho High? I graduated from there in ’98. I currently reside in Whittier.
I have been meaning to comment on your blog for the longest time! You have a great sense of humor. Your honesty and sincerity really show through your writing!
February 1, 2011 at 5:54 am
No, I went to St.Paul
Thanks for reading!

This was pretty neat.

Oh my gosh, so I have to admit it is a pet peeve of mine when people who normally don’t have an accent have one just for certain words. Like Giada on the Food Network and Italian words. I’m always screaming at her in my head “Either have that accent all the time or don’t have one at all!” lol

Moni …. Amazing how all these conversations get-a-going with just a few things YOU say!! Ohgosh, I so love it. Everyone is absolutely entertaining. However, you are the leader of the pack! To me, you do not look Mexican. More Irish ~ hahaha! So cute though.
Sally-Kate …. very funny! NO …. I do not say/use any of those words/things …. nor do folks in CO I’m betting. Oh …. what sort of weird accent? Tell us.
Yeah Amber …. I’m w/ya. Riles me up too re the Italian-princess-chef! She can very often get on our nerves.
February 3, 2011 at 4:17 pm
Ha I called them chonies when I was dating a guy who’s family called them that…he wasn’t Hispanic though, he was Filipino and Native American. I think it was the Native American side that took up some of the Spanish phrasing for things. But…he’s long gone so I haven’t called them “chonies” in years
I love the other So Cal V-logs. I think you sound like much less of a Valley Girl than I do…and you’re closer to the Valley LOL (I’m in San Diego)
February 3, 2011 at 8:38 pm
You are too cute! I loved this post.

I love that you say Chanclas! I started saying that in Spain and then with my best friend who is Cuban and still say it without thinking. Hunni has no idea.
Thanks for sharing
