12/31 - Norma and Jen's user's guide for Evan Dawson

Evan's last day as a TV anchor and reporter is today and soon his golden voice will grace the airwaves at WXXI. We here at 13WHAM have known him a long time and, although, hes well-known around town, there are things you might not know about your new employee. At first you're taken aback by his jaw-- that razor sharp edge is intimidating! Then, his sparkling wit overcomes you and you wonder, "Is that guy for real?" So, we here at 13WHAM present to you "Evan Dawson: A User's Guide."

1. Do not be alarmed by the roof-rattling, throat-clearing sounds he makes in the morning. It will happen often and, yes, you will be shocked every time you hear it.

2. His 'five o'clock shadow' takes only minutes to appear. You can almost see his beard grow.

3. Pay attention to his socks. They are more fun than you'd expect.

4. His 'to-do' lists are longer than any you'll ever see. He actually includes things he's already done so he feels a sense of accomplishment!

5. He loves pomegranates. A lot.

6. Think he shies away from talking about his receding hairline? Think again. His balding jokes will cause fits of laughter. "My hairline is doing the moonwalk across my skull..."

7. He is very generous and will make coffee runs. He will sometimes pick up baked goods for you. Just dont be surprised if said baked goods have a few bites missing.

8. His glasses are often very dirty yet, somehow, he never sees it.
9. He has an unnatural obsession with singer Michael McDonald.

10. Loves music (see: unnatural obsession with Michael McDonald) and was once in a band comprised of 13WHAM employees called "Made By Hand".

11. He's 'kind of a big deal' in the wine writing world... but never toots his own horn. Ever.

12. He's not prone to sentimentality but gushes about his wife and son in a way that's adorable.

13. Is even-handed and among the best friends you could ever make. Enjoy him!
