last night's Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend recap plus online dating Qs, horror stories, where to see me

Last night’s show was really fun. First we talked to writer A.J. Jacobs, who was delightful, and then comedian Brendan McLaughlin came over to talk comedy and teach us how to professionally taste beer. He was a hoot, and I mean that in the sincerest way. At some point I also spoke Spanish and we did the wavey pencil dance and it was the greatest wavey pencil dance ever (Dustin took a solo) and we also talked about dating and my plans to do some online dating and document it on the show because I don’t go anywhere without my viewing audience.

Which brings me to a question: Have you had luck with online dating sites and which do you recommend?

And at the end of the show I invited you all to share your dating horror stories (either put them in the comments or email them to alisonrosenisyournewbestfriend AT gmail DOT com) and I will read some of them on the next show and name a winner. I’m not sure yet what the winner will win.

Oh and also, also, also, I need a logo so I can get some stickers made up. Anyone have any ideas for a logo that would look good on a bumper sticker? Maybe it should just be the name of the show. The thing that flummoxes me is that most sites where you order stickers have a button where you upload artwork. So that’s what I need. You know? Okay then.

Oh and also I had super fancy new title cards and we did a segment called “Just me or everyone?” where it was determined that many things I do are just me. It felt less reassuring than I’d hoped.

And one more potentially obnoxious thing. If anyone would like to make highlights on the videos for some of the moments I mentioned above, I will link to them.

Oh and see me tonight at 8pm ET on Diana Falzone‘s Paltalk show. Apparently I’ll be spelling my name with two LLs for the occasion.

And Friday morning at 11am ET I’ll be on CNET’s The 404 podcast. YAY!

Now I have phantom helmet syndrome

I was on The 404 today and wore a helmet the whole time to protect myself from accidentally looking beautiful. You can go here to read about the morning from their perspective (and to listen to the podcast and watch the video.)

Here are some photos. Ooooh, photos. You love photos.

Here I am in the monitor seeing if it’s safe. (It was.)

Here I am with the guys, protecting myself from accidentally falling job offers.

Here I am with Jeff Bakalar. My head looks so naked in this photo!

And here I am with Wilson Tang.

And here I am with Justin Yu. Despite the fact that I’m a wacky/zany person, I seldom make the wacky/zany face in photos hence many shots like the above. My repertoire is more limited to talking into bananas/carrots and wearing helmets, obviously. And, as the above picture would attest: looking pasty. I need a tan and a helmet.
