Phineas heard your voice, came running from the other room, jumped up on the computer table and put his head right next to the speaker.

I think he's in love.

LOL - Jiffy will be jealous when I tell him!

Sorry it was a poor recording - tell Phineas I'll do better next time!

I am still trying to imagine why anyone would need a word for throwing toilet paper over a house!

I'd have a go (at the meme, not the toilet roll chucking!), but I really don't know how to make a voice post. How did you do it?
23rd-Jan-2011 03:43 pm (UTC)
It doesn't require any; all you need is a basic little microphone (they're dirt cheap, maybe $5 or $10 dollars, and can be found wherever stereo and computer accessories are sold.) Just plug it into the audio outlet on your computer, then go here:


You can make as many test recordings as you like, then click "download" for the one you're satisfied with and it'll give you a URL link for your recording, to paste into your LJ post. :D

The toilet paper gag is something bored US teens dreamed up, much like the Chinese fire drill .

"rolls eyes"

Oh - thank you! I have a microphone built into the laptop - I know this because I can use Skype with my daughter without the headset. I've got a headset too...somewhere!

Yay! It works!

I saw your reply up already, so will listen in a minute.

Having read this "chat" I'm "glad" I now know what the loo paper gag is all about!
23rd-Jan-2011 03:03 pm (UTC)
Ahhhhhhh definitely snagging, when I have my computer all set up and stuff.

I can't here your voice on this yet, but I'll be looking forward to hearing your voice and awesome accent!!
23rd-Jan-2011 08:00 pm (UTC)
*g* - I hate my voice - and this is me .... so I decided to be good girl and post it - hope to hear yours someday soon.
23rd-Jan-2011 04:31 pm (UTC)
hehe you have the posh tint. Great voice Debs! :D
23rd-Jan-2011 08:02 pm (UTC)
Wow - I said there was a lot of distortion on the recording, that's hwta must have made it posh! I suppose it's cos I'm speaking slowly here!
23rd-Jan-2011 04:31 pm (UTC)
Deborah It's great to hear your voice again:D

I will have to do this one as well, but I hate my voice whenever I hear it back so there will be MANY test recordings *gg* But I think I will answer the questions in Dutch. That way whoever listens get a free short language course.
23rd-Jan-2011 08:04 pm (UTC)
Yay - that would be great.

I decided to listen to mine, then when it started I almost deleted it! So just cancelled and posted it before I got in too much of a panic!

Hope to hear yours - and in both English and Dutch would be great - but greedy!
23rd-Jan-2011 08:18 pm (UTC)
I was thinking about the answers I would give and I now know I have to do it in both English and Dutch :D

It's so wonderful to hear your voice! :)

This is such a great meme! Too bad I don't have a microphone. Then again, maybe it's for the best since my english pronunciation really needs some work... :D
24th-Jan-2011 11:50 am (UTC)
*g* - I hate my voicr, so you almost didn't get to hear it ... but as I've met a few of my f-list personally I knew that they had heard me, so I thought why shouldn't the rest of you suffer!
23rd-Jan-2011 09:36 pm (UTC)
I'm confused. How do I listen to your responses?
24th-Jan-2011 11:50 am (UTC)
Just click on the Vocaroo link - it appears to be OK for others - including a few in USA
24th-Jan-2011 03:25 am (UTC)
I love this meme. It is so good to hear your voice. I will try to do this one tomorrow when I have some time.
24th-Jan-2011 11:51 am (UTC)
That would be great - hope you manage to do it - would love to hear your voice.
22nd-Feb-2011 02:32 am (UTC)
That was so much fun! I enjoyed hearing your voice. It sounds like TP-ing houses is not a common pastime for high school kids in Great Britain. Which is just as well!
22nd-Feb-2011 08:28 am (UTC)
Yes, something I hadn't heard of - and still haven't!

Great to know that we don't have that madness to add to other teenager "pranks".

I hate hearing my own voice, so almost didn't do it!
