Motion Sickness, Blog Reading, and Other ish

I had to leave the work spot early today, to go to the Will County Court office to file a motion to vacate. I got 2 tickets, 1 apparently in 2000 that I don't remember and 1 in 2001 that I do remember. I honestly don't remember ever receiving court dates for either, but in any event, I cannot get my license renewed until I get this matter resolved. Worst case scenario is I gotta pay a 1500 fine, which at this point, is ok as long as I get it over and done. It will delay my hopes of purchasing my new whip by a few weeks, but I've set my B-Day (May 27, my golden b-day cuz I'll be 27) as the goal, which I feel is more than affable. I'm just hoping that Dora (which is what I call my 96 Explorer) can last until then. They say she's been leaking anti-freeze into the head gasket which will eventually blow, so instead of paying g's to get it fixed I'd rather put that into a new one. I got her in 2004, my first SUV. One of the happiest days in my life. I'm hooked on them now, as I can't see myself driving a car anymore. My choices are either a newer Explorer or a Chevy Trail Blazer. Any opinions?

Back to the tickets. All I can say is "Eff the suburbs!" That's why I'm a city guy. In my 10 years of driving, I've never been stopped by the Chicago police, except once, for running a red light (which I felt was yellow, but anyways). They may ride up behind you for a hot second, but unless they got some major info on you, they zoom right by. But suburban police? Them fuckers ain't got shit else to do, so they try to stop you for minor shit like a headlight being out or driving with your tags expired, and then they try to get you on other shit too. I lived in the burbs with my ex back in 2001 (which explains one of the tickets) and I had my tags expired, and I must've gotten stopped like 5 times in a 1 to 2 month span. After me and her broke up, I couldn't wait to move back to the city....My court date is April 6. I think I'm going to go for the suit jacket and glasses look and hope the judge woke up on the right side of bed that morning.

* My accounts at work were surprisingly slow today, so I had a lot of free time. So what did I do? Read up on 2 of my favorite bloggers, InsanelySane and Missy aka Ms. New Booty. I mean like I went into the way back machine (archives) to see what was up with these two characters. Wow, these two have both been thru struggles but have survived. I'm in awe of you two ladies for holding it together in trying times. Honestly, I read up on Missy a lot because....(as I'm going into spill guts mode..) she is the type of chick that I would be intimidated to talk to. Especially since, judging by what she says in her blog, homegirl got a "mouth" on her. But she seems like as soon as you get to know her she's a fun person........That's always been my problem...I overthink too much and become intimidated with the opposite sex. Lemme give an example....There's a chick at my second job (the cable spot), half black and half puerto rican, with a J-LO ass! Maybe even bigger than hers. She might be fucking with Buffy the Body! (Gratuitous pic for the fellas, and ladies who like that kind of thing.) Anyways I was always scared to talk to her, but one day I sat next to her around christmas and she's talking to her friend about some new lotion that she's using that makes her body soft, and out the blue she's says "hey you (talking to me) - come feel the top of my shoulder - don't that feel soft?".....ummm, yeah it does (LOL)....so she asks for my name, I tell her, and that was it. I still didn't say much to her.....A couple of weeks went by, I sit by her again, I'm still quiet, and she calls me the wrong name. I correct her. Then she says, "well maybe if you talked more I would remember your name!"....Now that she knows my name, every time I see her she always says hi to me. And not like a head nod or the index finger (LOL).
It's always "Heyyyy Robert". See if I would open my MF'n mouth, I wouldn't be in the position I'm in a lot. Now would I ever try to get at her? I highly doubt it. She's pretty and has a dope body, but she's kinda too loud for my liking and is one of them types that's always talking about money or what a guy has or doesn't have, and I'm not sure if there's more to her past the surface. And after dating "Southern Belle" for a year or so, I'm really into smart chicks. That's a turn on for me.

You all can think of me as a ball player with all the skills but can't put it all together. I got a little game. (LOL). Whenever I'm on the phone, women tell me that they love my voice, it sounds smooth and professional. It's not deep or anything, but I do like my voice. I always liked my father's voice so I guess you can say I my pattern my vocals after him and since he's my father I'm going to naturally sound like him anyways.


Ok, the last chick in my previous story, the one I was currently dating (emphasis on was), Is getting real close to being put on the list. You know the list. The Pay-No-Mind list. I'm trying, really, really, really hard to not give up on her because things were going great until she endured her own problems, but Rob likes attention. Rob craves attention. Rob needs attention, in order for this man-woman thing to work (sorry I went into Max Julien mode there). Well she has not been giving me the attention I need, the last I talked to her (last Saturday) she said that she has a new car now and that she's collecting unemployment and she's also making money on the side (she's a web/graphic designer). Ok so it sounds like things are headed back to normalcy (always wanted to use that word, LOL), and she said she was going to try to see me, but she hasn't called. She sent me a text message on Tuesday night asking how I was, but I didn't respond for a few days. You make me wait, I'm gonna make you wait too. Yeah, petty, I admit. I ain't perfect. But I did text her and email her earlier today, and even called her later on. No responses, yet. Tiger tells me not to be "that way" and just give her time. Do I have to tell the world again how impatient I am again?

Well this is a big weekend for me, you know with me being off Saturday and all. Let's hope I come up on some numbers, or at least a visit from my recent "friend".


Thanks for Reading,

Robert Mack

Young Jedi I sense the force is strong in you. Go tap that J lo booty girl on the shoulder again. So what if she's loud!!! They all are at some point. Take her to one of your spots ya know where the drinks are cheap and the Bartender knows you by your first name. get her niiice and toasty. After she's had a few she'll really think your Chris Webber. Take her home and see how many Glasses you can put on her ass before they fall off...

@ Tiger
I'm trying, cuz. I'm going to see if she is going to call me sometime this weekend, as I'm sure she got the voice mail and email. If I don't hear nothing by Monday morning, she's ON THE LIST.....and yeah get prepared for them strike I'm finna throw!

@ InsanelySane
I love your vision. What's up on the ROAD TRIP to Dallas? (LOL......)

@ Mr. Slish
To be honest, I'm looking for more than a hit and quit, and I think that's all JLB (J-Lo Booty) would be to me. And she's changed her schedule so I don't see much of her anymore, which I guess could be a good thing...but I'm only attracted to her visuals, not the mental...that being said, if she "throws" it at me.........

@ Ms New Booty
I appreciate you coming by...I just spent 1700 to get the trans fix like 2 months ago and now this...I could have taken that 1700 and put it towards a newer truck, or towards these ticket fines If I gotta pay them...oh well, can't cry over spilled milk...And yes I learn a lot from your blog, that's why I read everyday I can :)....Probably no blog for today, I gotta work at both spots...Look for something either Saturday or Sunday, I'm thinking of telling my homophobic story..

@ Liquor and TV
She got a shorty, I think he's like a year or so, she ain't with the baby daddy no more (don't know why, don't care). I'm sure she thinks I'm cute or whatever, but I'm with you on this one. But man she got an ass...anybody ever seen that porn star named Cherokee? Yep she's like that.
