Introducing: My "fake girlfriend"!
Rebecca Stevenson is a meteorologist with both Northwest Cable News and KING 5 in Seattle. I totally adore her, and my wife Elisa tolerates and even encourages it in little silly ways. She recently made a little sticker for me with a photo of Ms. Stevenson and the text "Rebecca Stevenson is my fake girlfriend." Very silly and sweet.
Elisa said I should write to her and ask for a signed picture. I had considered it myself. So, eventually, I emailed Rebecca Stevenson. I mentioned the silly sticker Elisa had made, not sure whether it would be taken as cute or creepy. Fortunately, I got an email back saying that I had "made her day."
Yesterday, Dec. 12, I got an envelope in the mail. This is a scan of what was inside.
Too awesome! Elisa and I both just loved it! Just way too cool, and more than I had hoped for!
NOTE: After leaving NWCN last fall to accept a position at KIRO-7, Rebecca was contractually obliged to not appear on a competing television station for 6 months. The wait is over -- she is now on KIRO-7 weeknights. Check out her www.kirotv.com/rebeccastevenson/index.html which includes a new photo (unfortunately they weren't savvy enough to ask ME to do the photography), and the slideshow.
