Here in the Pacific Northwest, I think our dialect is considered standard English. Obviously we have certain words that are regional (granola isn't just a food; pop isn't just a sound; skookum isn't just a random made-up word), but otherwise? Pretty boring.
Boring aside, I decided to do the accent vlog because I thought Sam's was so cute. And I love linguistic studies. Plus (evidently) tons of bloggers are doing this, but I must not run in the right blog circles because I haven't seen any of them (except at Sam's encouragement I did watch Swistle's, Jonniker's, and Lee's). ANYWAY! Here I am. Crazy facial expressions and all. (Bonus: A certain cutie pie makes a cameo appearance.)
