Okay, so here you go.  Don't murder me!  It's a little over five minutes long...

And yes, at the end I pronounce Psyche as [sahyk] instead of [sahy-kee].  Both are technically correct, though the latter is the correct pronunciation for the way it is written in the poem.  My mistake.

I loved this! It was great fun. xDD
I thought about recording it, but I'm really supposed to be studying for a midterm at this moment... *flees*

(maybe later...)

That's a much softer inflection of your voice than I've heard before. You did damned well with it!

Stupid darn phone didn't send what I had typed!

I had to push myself to say aunt like ant.  I've never said it that way, though I know quite a few people who do. 

-blushes-  Aww thanks.  I always thought my voice was high pitched with a tiny bit of gravely-ness to it.

Probably because I was speaking softly and slowly.

Wow, this is really fun and a great find. I think some of the words are traps, though - for instance, bass could be pronounced like the instrument or like the fish. I tripped up there and then was second-guessing myself the whole way through. But I still got most of them right!

Funny how one word could be pronounced different ways. I wonder if Texans and New Yorkers would argue about how "Houston" is pronounced? :)

Ooh, I did one too xO!!!! *totally excited <333*

It only took me three tries to get it right, though I did have to look up Islington and Balmoral, as well a couple of the other words.

*laughs* Actually, the reason I messed up the third time was because my housemate interrupted and I started speaking in Chinese midway through.

Don't laugh too much! >>;

Uh huh...you and Ket with your sweet voices then my obnoxious scratchy one...sure ::)

Of course I've heard you speak before so yours isn't too much of a suprise (with how you say the poem)

This is fun...we need more people to do this!! ;D

Actually, what would be REALLY fun... is to have a whole bunch of people say it, and then make a mix so that a different person is saying each line of this thing. ;D

*claps* yay!! You girls did great with that! I think i'd goof up half through and just keep going. The heck with re-recording. haha.. i'd probably laugh at myself too. But the different line each is a good idea! Also, we need more guys doing this! I'll do my own tomorrow, when i can speak above a whisper, or rather later today now that I look at the clock. I know K said he would, what about some of the others? I'm sure some of you guys speak quite well!
