I adore regional accents.

Also, uhm, 5:52 am?

I know. Insomnia. I'd like to blame it on something fabulous: This Post Came To Me In A Dream! But no.

I think I was anxious for the last day of school. I mean, come on, who isn't? The first grader herself woke up at 6:30-something. At least I got a good start on my day.

i just watch blue's clues cause Joe's cuteness seems to grow on you the more episodes you consume. If we have to suffer, you'd think that we could at least get good eye candy to look at.

I tried to leave a comment, but my computer freaked out when I clicked "Login and Publish." I'll try it again.

(ahem) You made me snort. Again. Even us Utahns who once lived in Lay-un recognize a Utah accent when we see one (but not, however, when we hear one). This is the perfect song to demonstrate how we sound.

As one who was barn and rezzed in Utah, I will confess to dropping my t's, but I refuse to pronounce my "ai" vowels as "eh." It bugs. My ex-SIL talks like that, but she also has that Utah grammar thing going as well. (We seen, we was, etc.) I refuse to talk like that. Probably because I'd sound like her.

The Utah accent gives me nightmares. Other words: "pellow", "melk", "moun'ain".

good ones. What about 'egg' with a long 'A' sound?
