Almost Purr-fect

I've just about given up on my autograph collecting -- at least the through-the-mail portion. It's not that I've lost interest, it's just that it takes a lot of time to do it right and that pesky damn job is demanding more and more of my time.
Another thing it requires besides time is patience. I wrote to Julie Newmar requesting an autograph back in July 2003. Last week, six and a half years later I got it. I would say it was worth waiting for, Julie Newmar's Catwoman was the subject of my first several erotic dreams, and I have still carry a torch for her, but the postal service messed me up. This is a postcard and they cancelled the stamp on it so hard some of the lines came through, making Ms. Newmar look like she was drunk when she put on her mascara.
Do you think I should try to get a replacement? I should have it by Summer 2016.

I know someone who knows her personally. From what I hear, she's an absolutely lovely human being. She's on facebook and I think if you contacted her, she'd likely send you a replacement. Maybe send her an SASE this time.
