Oh man, it's been a while. Sorry beloved followers, admirers of Mutt, I've let you down. But I promise to make it up to you. For instance, would you all like to hear some fantastic news?
Of course you do. Mutt would like your help in welcoming Ms. Megan Raphael to the agency. Megan recently left Nemo Design to join us as an Account Director, sharing the load with Beauvais. Welcome Megan! We got a bit of a head-start on the welcome when Ms. Raphael joined Luker and McCommon in Chicago for a client meeting. Megan aced it and they celebrated with some of the local fauna...Go Cubs.
But who is Megan Raphael? I sat down with her to have a little welcome chat. It went something like this:
Z: You know, I have a sister named Megan.
M: And I have a dad named David...
Z: Too weird...And your last name is the name of a Ninja Turtle. And I like turtles, especially the ninja kind. But - and this is nothing against you because I love you - Raphael wasn't the best. Donatello is my homeboy. How do you feel about Raph?
Z: So you've never heard that one before...Anyway, where do you hail from?
M: Boulder, Colorado.
Z: Now that you work at Mutt you realize you need a dog, right?
M: I already have one, Bernard-Jacques, or Bernie for short. He's the world's smartest dog. He understands two languages, French and English.
Z: Man, I wish I knew French. So do you think his favorite color is Red or Blue?
M: Aren't dogs colored blind?
Z: I bet he has a favorite shade...Hey Megan, what's your biggest pet peeve?
M: When people fail to use the two most important words in language: please and thank you.
Z: Classic. I bet your parents are proud, what'd you want to be when you grow up/when you grow up?
M: Before I got into this, I'd have said doctor like my parents, but now I'd love to be a mom.
Z: This is going on the blog, I'm sure you'll get some responses. So how do you introduce yourself to new people?
M: With a smile and a firm handshake.
Z: What's your favorite place in Portland?
M: My friend Jess' living room.
Z: And if you could meet any celebrity, who would it be?
M: Prince, and the revolution, of course.
Z: Of course. Now can you imagine if you met him in Jess' living room?
M: Oh. Man. Fabulous. But she has a nice couch...Maybe if we made sure he took his shoes off it'd be okay.
Z: ZING!!!! Charlie Murphy!!! Speaking of ridiculous, if you could choose only one: the ability to fly one day a month, the ability to control the weather one day a week, or the ability to see through clothing, what would you choose?
M: Hahaha. It'd be fun to see through clothing, but I'm going to have to go with flying for sure. Especially if I had the speed of a Concorde.
Z: You're probably right, but seeing through clothes would be pretty incredible. On that note, Who is your all-time hero?
M: My grandma, Maxine.
Z: Good transition. So you've met Luker and Cromer. Who'd win in a fight, in your unbiased opinion.
M: Based on a few emails I've seen, Scott Cromer.
Z: Last thought, what always makes you smile?
M: Letters from Rwanda.
Z: Perfect. Thank you Megan, it's been a pleasure. We're glad to have you.
M: Fun times, thanks!
