Return of the King

Arriving late Friday night, the King has returned from Dallas. It was the flight from hell including circling over LaGrange and touch and goes in Atlanta. The most incredible week of my young professional life. We were treated like kings at the 4 Star Hilton Park Cities in Dallas where the Bama/Sigma Chi alumni CEO/Founder and EVP/"Pledge Trainer Judson" park there Aston Martin and Benz S55 backed in the driveway while everyone else must be valeted. The burger in the hotel bar is called the "World Wide Express Burger". Imagine 75 people between one month and three years out of college in a ballroom from 8:30am til 9pm learning the shipping business from my new mentor, Joe Judson. If the CEO is at training for several hours a day it must speak to how important the training classes are to DHL's largest sales partner in North America(in 15 month's we will be DHL's largest partner in the world.) Being wound up tight all week, Thursday night was a interesting night on the town in Dallas. I didn't make it the final 3 to compete for the Mont Blanc and cash so I will have to settle for Top 8 until I return to Dallas for another week in 3 months and a week in Miami for Conference in October. I guess Top 10% isn't to bad. I have some really, really interesting stories that cannot be published for the world to see. I turned into the ring leader Thursday getting everyone on 6 cabs to go to a place called Tribeca in uptown Dallas. It helps to grease the concierge's palm. I will be out on my own in the field this week so the hustle is oooooon!!

Congratulations to Daddy for passing his engineering test and the successful interview. That test is an absolute killer.

$hakes, I love the bar idea. I hope you are ready for some late nights. Might want to get EY a cot in the back and designate yourself the house band! You can be the Piano Man of Auburn. Your idol, Elton John, is suing Atlanta over property taxes due to "overvaluing his condo".

Nation, Braves game in the next week or two? I have some goodies that I need your help in using up. I have not smoked in almost two weeks. Who would have ever thought I would do that?

Dr., I am going to try and get a decent myspace page up. Any ideas? I am thinking about trying to publisize the blog from it.

$hakes, I mean Jeff Gordon won the road race. Rainbow Queer rides again.

Junior gets the rights to the name. Great business move.

Braves snap a 10 game losing streak but are sinking fast.

English and German fans riot at World Cup. Beck saves the day with his specialty free kick.

I got a couch, desk and leather office chair for the house Saturday so we are fully furnished. Now it is time to pick some accent wall colors. Any ideas? My office will be the Auburn room so I am thinking blue or a dusty orange. Chocolate for the living room to go with the dark wood, Loosier Leather Recliner and loden green couch. Maybe a rust or steel blue for the bedroom?

My father called Thursday morning to wish me Happy Birthday as I was getting on the elevator. You gotta laugh because it is not til September 19th.

I almost bought a Smith & Wesson 9mm today but I need to get a new license with my correct address first. I have been wanting to get a pistol for a while and finally found one I like. The range is a fun place to go and girls love it. Nice complement to the 12 guage Remington and Israeli AK-74. World War III will end at 371 E. Paces Ferry Rd. #10.

July 4th plans?

Have a great week and I hope to see ya'll soon!

I bought a book on the Confederate Flag last night bc the pic of the old flag in front of the KA house in Auburn was in there...along w/ Jarhead, coffee table Porsche, and a good Winston Churchill.

King of Tigerland said...

check out, it is two UF grads who blog that "every day should be saturday"....not bad

tigernation said...

Very familiar with that site. They have some good stuff on there from time to time.

Daddy said...

That is the longest topic page ever.

What is your plan on wednesday.

Shakes and Dr.,
Did yall see where they are bringing back storytellers on VH1, and Pearl Jam is the first band. Ought to be pretty political.

Daddy said...

Where is your sister working now?

tigernation said...


I will be in B-ham on tues night. So I'll be hanging around all day on wed waiting on Kim to get off work. If y'all are planning on driving back to AU after the show you might want to give my bro a call. He is coming to the show but I think he has to come back that night.

Just give me a shout on your way up there and we can meet up.

Oh yeah, and Kim may just have me a couple of backstage passes!!!! I might be burning with the freaking Crowes on wednesday!!!!

Daddy said...

That would be insane. Remember your boy daddy if you get a whole bunch extras.

I will be coming down on wednesday afternoon. I am not sure what flannagan's plans are, but I am sure we will head up there as soon as I get there, because he will not want to miss any of the performers. I heard that Drive-by Truckers play first.

Daddy said...

And i think I am spending the night.

tigernation said...

Yeah I'm staying the night too so we MUST get together at some point. Either at the show or afterwards at the bars.

If she comes up with any extra passes I'll get you in with us. Still up in the air right now but her friend thinks she can get us back there. So it might be crazy!!

Daddy said...

Thats awesome.

I talked to Flann just a minute ago, he said the plan is to be in the parking lot by 5 o'clock. I wish Robert Randolph was playing first, because I would rather see all of The DBT. WE are on row F.

Daddy said...

Row F in the first tier, not sure where that is. We will definitely have to meet up. Are yall planning on catching all the acts or just the crowes?

Dr.Feelgood said...

Oh yes Daddy I saw that storytellers was coming back. Odell made a point to call immediately and arrange our leaving for Key West plans around that episode.

Just hopefully attended my last event in anniston for a while. That town just gets extremely old after a weekend or two there.

Went to AJs late night after the wedding. Absolutely disgusting. Glad I went once, just for a good laugh, but never will I step food in that Redneck cess pool again

Daddy said...

Yeah Anniston sucks, but oxford sucks more. Together they suck cock!

Daddy said...

I still have my AJ's membership card from when shakes and I went on a Sunday night, and we were two of like 5 people there.

Dr.Feelgood said...

AJ's is a piece of work.

Anything going on elsewhere? Me and Odell fly out Monday morning for a week in Key West

Tankersley broke the 0.00 ERA last night and now is rocking a 1.69, not to shaby for your first couple of innings in the big leagues

No Dr. I had some free tickets to go see the Crowes tonight but decided not to go since it is in the middle of the week and I have work and stuff going on. I`ve seen them a lot I`m not really upset.

I don`t really have anything planned until the cruise in mid- July other than Jay Russell`s thing in G-ville.

Daddy said...

I may need you to do some detective work. I will send you an email.

Daddy said...

I also received several free bowling passes.
