Peer Pressure is Cool and Yes, This is My Voice

12 Apr

Everyone else is doing it, so obviously I have to, too.

I wrote this post way back during my first month of blogging (ever!) in February 2009. It’s about how grocery shopping stresses me out so I tried buying them online but then ended up ordering enough meat to feed a small army.

This will never happen again because I stick with my lists and actual real life grocery stores. And also now I’m a vegetarian.

P.S. Please also tell me if you think I sound at all like Drea, because she just posted her recording and I hit play and felt like I was listening to myself.

P.P.S. It’s very strange hearing a voice that is almost just like yours but definitely does not belong to you reading a story that’s also not yours but very well could be because I hate doing laundry more than anything and never sort my lights and darks and also currently have approximately 6 loads of laundry to do. (I don’t actually know how many loads I have, but it’s all of my clothes, so it must be a lot of loads.)

P.P.P.S. Clearly domesticity is NOT ONE OF MY STRONG SUITS!

    Also I love that the alt text for my post is “possible voice twin,” because I was totally thinking “IDENTICAL VOICE TWIN” like from that episode of Friends with Joey and his identical hand twin. Aaaaanyway. For the record, now I want to go back and read your entire blog in your/my voice.

    I can’t agree with the vegetarianism. You are going against God’s plan for us to be omnivores. In nature there are omnivores, herbivores and carnivores. You would scream blood murder if you knew of a bear kept in a zoo and was only fed vegetables and fruits as cruelty to animals.

    Would you only feed a cat veggies or a dog?

    Your voice sounds EXACTLY like I thought it would, and that never happens to me!!!! Loved this.

    In other news… It’s interesting to listen to you read the post when I already read your posts in your voice… you read faster in my head.

    […] one more (actual) last thing, inspired by Nicole, Drea, Amber and Sara, I finally recorded myself reading one of my early-ish blog posts from over 4 (!!) years ago, when […]
