Video Killed The Radio Star

I've never been a radio star but I decided that this weekend I would be a video star. 
 In the video below, please pretend that my bangs are actually this long and that I did not hack them off in a fit of pique.

Have a Lovely Weekend Everyone.

  1. love the video!
    and i could easily understand your english! usually spoken english is to fast and with to much accent for me....
    i really like that your hair is not cemented in "the perfect way", it´s a gorgeous movement when you go thru it with your hands and then laugh about yourself :-)
    good done!

    p.s.: thanks for the lovely comments!

    1. Thank you Beate. I am proud to be a slow speaking, subtly accented non-cement head!

  2. Hello! :) It was such a treat, Shawna, and I enjoyed it a lot! In some ways, you are very much like your writing and photo presence, and in other ways, you are different, and it is fun! I bet when we meet in "real life", there will be so many more discoveries about each other. Thank you for greeting us and bubbling happily for us this morning! It really feels like I know you a little better now. You are so cute! And I have to say I did not notice a lot of differences between Vancouver English and Seattle English, but maybe I just did not pay much attention to it. I enjoyed the stories of your family words like "saucepin" - always special, keep them up! Hugs to you my friend! xxxxxxx

    1. You are right, Vancouver and Seattle would sound pretty similar with only very subtle differences in the pronunciation of select words like route, roof and in my case, mum.

    2. I'm not so good with subtleties I'm afraid! :) I have this idea to make a video for quite a while now, but haven't even tried it yet. And I am sooo glad you did! I think we need to start doing it - it brings the whole new level to our virtual friendships.

      I hope you consider sending Gabi Moon to Moon your home photos because your home is lovely, individual, cozy and wonderful! I'd love to see you there! I sent her a link to my cottage post. xxx

  3. That was a treat … I loved hearing the voice behind the blog.
    You were exactly as I expected you to be … so your moving Shawna and your still Shawna aren't as different as you think they are … but in saying that I must reinforce that I think still Shawna looks lovely.
    By the way I always cook in a saucepan … pot is another name for whacky tobaccy around here ;0)

    1. Yes, it is that here too. And I giggle like an adolescent when someone from the UK refers to a pot plant.

  4. I watched and very much enjoyed listening to you!!!! It was fabulous, you are so lovely, I know we would totally get on face to face. I love your accent, your laugh, your hand gestures, thanks Shawna that was such fun, the real you, the moving you. Just as gorgeous as the still you!!!

    1. Awww thanks Sue! I am sure we would get along well. I would definitely come over and hang out in your garden with you and all the animals.

  5. Oh wow! You totally sounded different than I imagined. I forgot about the Canadian accent, or knew but overlooked it. Also your voice is higher than I expected. Your teeth are amazing, and you need to let go of the stigma. They are straight and white!
    You really are bubbly, and move so much the camera vibrated sometimes! Loved this further insight into your presence...but I have to reassess. I've been talking to the wrong person in my head and it's thrown me a little if I'm honest. Like reading the book and watching the movie with different images for the main character :-) I'm sure I'll adapt and have a more accurate picture and sound in my head from now on! Thanks for sharing yourself in this lovely way. xo JJ

    1. LOL-Oh JJ I always thought I had a deep voice but you are the second person to disillusion me. I always feel like my teeth are trying to take over the world, but I will try to give them a little more love and let them show more.

      I am sorry to do damage to the Shawna in your head. I know exactly what that is like when you read a book and develop the character in your mind and then in a movie they make it different. I am not usually so generous as to say 'different' and usually just say they got it wrong. So did I get myself wrong? LOL I am sure I am the same person who is in your head in essence, just bubbling a bit more perhaps. Tell your in-head-Shawna to sit on her hands. ;-)

  7. I have chrome and after 4+ minutes of determination I got there! I loved hearing you! and seeing you too! I have to say like most, you are exactly like I imagined you to be, because your writing is brilliant and portrays you wonderfully (I like it a lot!!!) and 'moving' and 'still' Shawna are both beautiful, I love the saucepans, I say pans, pot is dodgy smoking stuff here haha! and I like I am having a glass of wine while we are having this, most lovely time too x x x

  8. Hey Shawna, how lovely to see and hear you in your video, great idea. I'd love to drop by for coffee if only I were nearer xx

  9. So good to see and hear you in chatty action, Shawn! Somehow, I think you sound very much as I imagined. And seeing someone actually moving, rather than in still photos, always gives a different, more real impression.
    In Sheffield, people talk about doing the pots - it means doing the washing up! xxx

  10. Lovely to see you in action! You sound exactly how I imagined. xxx

  11. OMG! This is so perfect, I'm so happy I'm finally able to see you!!!! This is exactly how I imagined you would be like, the voice, the mannerism, the way you talk, so intelligent and quirky and fun, and just a lovely human being! ^_^ And you're both a moving person and a still person by the way :D You look both awesome on photos and on video, I have to admit though, I enjoyed more your video because we get to see and hear a lot of you ^_^

  13. I love the fact you talk with your hands. I once was chastised by a boss who told me talking with my hands was unprofessional. I really got instantly enraged and told her she was guilty of ethnocentrism. I told her I was raised in an Italian neighborhood and it was the norm, she on the other hand was obviously raise in a wasp white neighborhood who felt imitation of the queen was the acceptable norm. I then asked her why all of my colleagues where all white and not representative of the community we work in......long story short I did NOT get fired and she proceeded to hire other teachers of other nationalities than hers.... so I love talking with my hands too and others who do it as well. Your video is brave and confident as women that is a great achievement I feel all sorts of insecurities when I try to put myself and my craft out there BRAVO
