‘Avin it large with SpinVox this evening.
I wonder if there is a Wikipedia entry for the phrase ‘Avin it large’. (There’s a vague reference here).
Got this in after my rather positive, hormone-flowing post about SpinVox earlier:
I wonder how good they are… I mean I have trouble with people getting my name wrong all the time (americans call me Don, it pisses me off), if I called you and said something like:
“Hi Ewan, It’s XXX XXXXX here, I just got the ad copy through for the poster and I think you might have spelled supercalifragilisticexpialidocious wrong, anyway, give me a call back on [loads of numbers read out quickly]”
I wonder what you’d get.
I wrote back to the reader and said, ‘Do it! Let’s try it!’
So the reader has called. It’s gone to voicemail. Their precise message was:
Hi Ewan, It’s XXXX XXXXXX here, I just got the ad copy through for the poster and I think you might have spelled supercalifragilisticexpialidocious incorrectly, anyway, give me a call back on 07XXXXXXXX thanks
(Blocked out the phone number)
Stay with me.
This is live blogging.
120 seconds … BEEP BEEP! GET IN!
Here’s what I got back:
Hi Ewan it’s XXXX XXXXXX here. I just got the ad copy through for poster & I think you might have spell SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICASPIALIDOCIOUS incorrectly. Anyway, give me a call back on 07XXXXXXXX. Thanks.

The reader commented:
Impressive. I said Hi Ewan as Hiyun (although it should pick up your name from your registration) and I said my name quickly supercal… quickly and my number was really quick (and deliberately different from my callerid)
Despite an issue with the Mary Poppins word, I reckon that’s an A-Pass. Nice work SpinVox!
