Did I mention my sister got married?

Hey everyone! I love your hat. I just wanted to take a moment to say hello since it’s been so long since we’ve all hung out together and by that I mean it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything. Part of it is that I spent the weekend in a valley that time and pesticide forgot for my sister’s wedding. Here is a photo of my mom and me coated in makeup.

By the way, if you want to hear some hilarious jokes made by my family members, wear a wreath of flowers on your head for a wedding. My brother said I looked like Amy Winehouse (because there was a pouf of hair in the back which you can’t see in the photo) and my dad asked when I was being crucified which I didn’t even get at the time until I realized he was suggesting it was a crown of thorns. I’m pretty sure there were other unfunny jokes as well.

I thought of vlogging during the wedding but couldn’t bring myself to do it because I felt like it wouldn’t be a fair use of my time and what if I missed another HILARIOUS floral wreath comment? You can see the quandary.

Also, I made a speech and everyone cried and also I cried and then people kept coming up to me after and saying “YOUR SPEECH….” and then they’d trail off. I would fill in the comment with “was amazing” or “was something I would like a copy of” or “should win an award for Best Speech Given By An Older Sister at a Wedding” (a “nupty”)  however I told my friend Trevor all this and he said maybe they weren’t finishing the thought because I’d traumatized them with my poignant prose. Actually, he didn’t even say the last part. He just said I’d traumatized them. I think it was a compliment.

Here’s Trevor and my sister and me after I made everyone cry.

But also part of the reason I didn’t vlog or blog was because my web site was down which surely you are aware of because you tried to go to it and when you discovered it was down you felt a despair unlike anything you’d felt before but probably not dissimilar to how people felt upon hearing my speech.

Another photo? If you insist.

Here I am wearing a coat because it was freezing:

And here’s a photo of the wedding. I was in charge of dealing with the train of the dress which is kind of a big deal but I didn’t let it go to my head. Also, I fear I didn’t do a great job because while the vows were happening I really wanted to get up and fix my previous shoddy train placement but I didn’t. And then when my sister was about to walk back down the aisle after the ceremony and after I gave her the bouquet (I was also on bouquet duty. Don’t be intimidated.) then I realized she was standing on the dress so I tried to pull it out from under her feet but she wasn’t budging so I did what I had to do, whacked her in the shins until she lifted her feet. I’m pretty sure it’s what Pippa Middleton would have done as well.

The end.

    Wonderful!  Maybe someday you’ll post your speech, I’m sure we all would love to read it.  All the best to your sister and her hubby! 

  •  I thought your Mom was very pretty when I saw her briefly on that one ARIYNBF, I think during one of your California visits.  But that doesn’t compare to this picture.  It’s easy to see where you and your sister get your good looks, sorry Doc, and it’s amazing that your Mom and you are more than 10 years a part in age.  Of course I’m just guessing that you are. ;o)

  • Poop

    Wow, your mom is beautiful.

  • Michael Andreula

    You’re very good on the show!  It’s not easy to hang with the ace man.  Thank you for making my morning so enjoyable!

  • DjWeideman

     I thought you looked enchanting, and that’s without the crown of thorns. It appears the hairtenna was behaving, but I could be mistaken. In any case, congratulations to your sister on her marriage, and we love you.

    Alison shame on you for being more stunning than the bride.

     Roar?

    Dan from the Dan Band was right…those eyes. Knock ’em dead sister.

    Alison, would you hate me if I made fun of the wedding?  I really want to.  Like, really bad.  I mean, what was the theme?  And the colors?  My guesses to both of those questions are “wood”.

    But I won’t make fun of it.

    You look beautiful with hose flowers in your hurr, by the way.

    What the heck Rosen?!?! You made a speech and nobody in the ceremony got a video? I’m more than disappointed… I am…. thinking you are holding out on us!

  • boinkity

    BTW… while all the other guys are checking out your mom (yes, we’ve all known for some time she is quite a beautiful woman)… Your sister is DAAAYUM HOT! (too bad she just got married though)

    That photo makes it look like they are getting married in the aftermath of a hurricane.

     Hey Alison,
    Glad the site is back up. Great wedding coverage. You mentioned the wedding was in Cherry Valley on the podcast.  I think I may have attended a wedding at the same spot a few years ago! I won’t try to say where it is, so all your “stalkers” don’t start heading out there..:) But anyway that is cool your sister had an outside wedding. When were there it was very windy and hard to hear the voices over the PA system. Hey all the Rosen women look good. Your mom has aged very gracefully…… good genes….hey this bodes well for you! Always a bridesmaid, never a bride?  Just wait your prince charming will come! Believe!
    Ok peace out,
    the40yroldvirgin   L:)

  • Still chuckling at the “Nupty.”

    Hey Alison Rosen,
    Due to a combination of being not very tech-savvy and doing a job that I don’t really get any time off, I find myself never knowing what you looked like, but thoroughly enjoying Adamn’s pod cast and wondering: “I wonder if that Alison Rosen news girl is cute…”
    I have a ton of vacation time now that I “have” to take, so I thought I’d investigate further.
    And WOW!
    Alison Rosen!
    You’re very cute!
    Good for you, Alison.  Keep up the great work.

    I waited patiently for 4 years and you FINALLY posted a picture of your sister! It was worth the wait. You and your Mom looked fantastic too.

    CONGRATULATIONS to the happy couple!!!  

  • Craig

    Glad it was not you getting married as all of us boys can hold on to a shred of hope!  No, really looked lovely and just saw the podcast and I am thinking the organic farm with all of the bugs is a little much.  Looking forward to the next vlog……

     Alison, are you familiar with Comedian/Actor Donald Glover’s Twitter meme #cangetit?

    Anyway, there is some nice DNA running around in your family…
