Come Aboard. We’re Expecting You

Those of us over a certain age (read – old as dirt) can remember the theme songs to certain TV shows better than we can the National Anthem. Try these lines out and see if you don’t immediately remember the tune that goes along with them:

  • Come and knock on our door | We’ve been waiting for you …
  • Makin’ your way in the world today | Takes everything you’ve got …
  • Just some good ol’ boys | Never meaning no harm …
  • Thank you for being a friend | Travel down the road and back again …

So when I got the news that my employer, Quest Software, wanted to send one of the team to an upcoming SQLCruise put on by Brent Ozar (blogtwitter) and Tim Ford (Blog/Twitter), another nostagic TV show song popped into my head –

  • Love, exciting and new | Come aboard. We’re expecting you …

I’m really excited about this trip and for a lot of reasons.  First, I’m not going to lie – I’ve never been on a cruise.  So this factor alone is pretty awesome.  Second, Brent and Tim are two of my favorite human beings. I’m looking forward to the chance to see them.  Third, SQLCruise is also about community and I’m looking forward to making some new friends. I’ll also be an hand to provide as much free training and demonstration on any of the goodies we’re giving away to the attendees. 

Finally, I’m looking forward to learning.  Brent and Tim know their stuff.  So, getting a chance to actually attend training under such skilled teachers is a treat I didn’t expect!

  1. HAHAHA, I’m flattered. Now I gotta go find a coat like that. I think I’m made for the job.

  2. Aaagh! Now the theme to Love Boat is going to be stuck in my head all day!
    Looking forward to meeting you on the Cruise. Being in Chicago, I’m definitely ready for a cruise.

  3. Now we know what Brent looks like without a neck.

    Please do make sure to blog about your sqLove boat experiences… especially the NSFW bits. 🙂
