You’ll never believe what I’m calling on!

I often tell people, “you’ll never believe what I’m calling from!” and they don’t seem to know what I’m saying. Also, the old “Bula Vinaka, Beachside!” AT&T commercial. I was talking with Barton George the other day about these two “cultural items” and it made me realize (a.) I watched a lot of TV when I was young and remember way too much of it, and, (b.) I’m constantly making way to many inside jokes about that crap content, like, yea, football phones. It’s like some thick English lit book that you need half a page of footnotes to understand except it’s about, yea, shitty long distance commercials and fictional burger wrappers.

Well, here they both are, just for Barton so he finally gets my stupid, way too inside jokes:

(P.S.: I’m going to start answering the phone by yelling, almost incomprehensibly “BULAVINAKABEACHSIDE!“)

“Data growth / excessive data growth and IT budget constraints were the most significant problems…”

“Data growth / excessive data growth and IT budget constraints were the most significant problems cited by respondents of the survey. Data protection/ disaster recovery / business continuity were also cited as significant issues, as were IT mis-alignment, mobility and getting a handle on cloud computing.”
