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!
