Oh mediabistro!

They ran this flawed blurb about my career change:

January 30, 2008: Alison Rosen has been named associate features editor at Time Out New York. She had been music writer there. (mb)

Which is awesome, but it happened TWO AND A HALF YEARS AGO! Other outdated causes for celebration?

January 30, 2008: Alison Rosen moved to New York. She had been living in Calfornia (mb)

January 30, 2008: Alison Rosen got her braces off. She had been wearing them for four years (mb)

January 30, 2008: Alison Rosen got into Pomona, early decision! She had been hoping this would happen so she could stop doing any work for the remainder of her senior year(mb)

January 30, 2008: but back to the braces thing, a lot of people only had to wear them for like two years, and she had to wear them for four which pissed her off, specifically because she didn't think she should still be in braces when she got her driver's license, you know? (mb)

January 30, 2008: Alison Rosen got her driver's license! (mb)

January 30, 2008: Alison Rosen got braces!

January 30, 2008: Alison Rosen learned how to raise one eyebrow. she's been working on it in front of the bathroom mirror for what seemed like many headache-inducing hours. (mb)

January 30, 2008: Alison Rosen will be playing the role of Mrs. Harper in the 8th grade musical. For this, she will be wearing a funny hat.

January 30, 2008: Alison Rosen is trying out for the role of Becky, the lead in the 8th grade musical. (mb)

January 30, 2008: Alison Rosen has been born. She had been a fetus. (mb)

January 30, 2008: Alison Rosen is a fetus. She had been a zygote. (mb)

January 30, 2008: Shhhhhhh.... be very very quiet. Alison Rosen is gestating.

" If she wins the whole thing, will that make me the first man to ever become the First Man ?"

Sure was a busy day... I would have gotten a headache without trying to raise one eyebrow (which I was able to do without trying.. Hey, I have to brag about something)

Loved seeing you on RedEye for the whole hour.

I hope you get to host for a week

whoa! The screen is a blit blury right now...and I don't quite get the (mb) maybe in the morning it will be.

I'm sure you were a hot zygotte! I've always wanted to use thta line

Wow - I guess Mediabistro is a little behind in their research. They also just reported that Dewey defeated Truman.

I wish I knew you as a zygote, Alison. Something tells we would have really hit it off.

SO... the answer to yesterday's trivia question is the Summer Olympics in Beijing! They're scheduled to start on 8/8/08 at precisely 8:08pm. The number 8 is lucky in China, which explains why they selected that particular date and time.

Another good trivia question: What famous person was born on 8/8/88? Greg might get that one because he lived in London. The answer is Princess Beatrice, the daughter of Sarah Ferguson. She's turning 20 this year. I haven't received the invitation to her birthday party yet. Mail delivery from Europe is SO slow!

I managed to miss the first half of Celebrity Rehab Thursday night. I hate when that happens! Now I'll have to check my local listings and see when it will be on again.

Enjoy the weekend!

Welcome to Saturday! After last night, I realize it's good to be Ted B. Goodlove!

Officer Rosen, please don't fine me for blogging under the influence (B.U.I) last night...things aren't quite as "blit blurry" now. I realize that zygote has one T for I was one. MB makes sense as well. See you can never trust reporters!

I so tried to get you an interview with Stevie last night...I was right next to the stage yelling, " need to interview with..." when all of the sudden two big bouncers threw me in the air and towards the crowd saying, "for someone who can't fly you sure are a lippy bastard." As I crashed into the 5th row, I so realized what he meant! The concert wasn't that bad from that vantage point.

In four hours my house will be crowded for another UFC fight night...but darn my head is freakin bumpin right now! :(

Peace crazy bloggers!

January 30: Remember that one time? band camp...when I stuck that flute....

That's disgusting!! Now I'm hungry for some Apple Pie for some strange reason.

One more thing.... I wish to reserve the right to use the "color me" comment for future usage. Like Alison's harrowing, I just don't feel like the timing was right and it didn't get it's just due. So if and when you see it again...Just look away. I coulda' did so much more with it.
