The Weekend that WASN'T

So much for the big weekend.

Saturday, I did go to my boy "Playmaker's" crib for his bbq, even though it was like 35 degrees. It was a typical kickin' it session - Shit talkin', games of Spade and Poker, weed smokin' (I don't take part in that, I'm such a lame....) It felt good because I haven't hung out with all of my boys since October, when "Blueprint" got married. I call him that because he's sorta the blueprint to success. He's the same age as me, 26, but he owns a few buildings in Chicago and has a beautiful wife and lives in a nice house in the burbs. Blueprint was the only one missing today, but the others (Playmaker, Big One, Lil One, and myself) were in the building. I need to come out more often, but the 2 jobs prevent that as well as I have a tendency to be a loner when things aren't going well. Well, actually , I'm quite the loner. I'm surprised I even still have friends. I come up with so many excuses as to why I don't want to come outside. But these are the same friends I had for 13 years now, since freshman in high school, and they've become family. So after kickin it until about 11, I drop Lil One off at the crib and I head home.

Saturday night and not a female to call, well at least not any that I'm interested in.....Wait, lemme backtrack - what's the deal with yall females that are married or got "guys" yet still want to try to holla at me? On Friday, this chick at my second job is taking a liking to me (as in she the one doing the courtin'), she asks me to walk her out to car to talk while her whip warms up. We get to the car, and she's asking all about me, trying to pick my brain, then she says in a matter of fact way, "Well I am married. And me and my husband are still together". So what the f*ck was all of the back and forth banter all about then? "Well my husband is ok with me having friends, I mean we can go out to a bar, but of course he'll probably want to come"..........Naw that's ok, I'm not interested. I ain't sure what you tryna do, but I aint having no parts of it. I might sound like a true lame to the fellas here, but I feel like I'm worth more than being some married or involved chick's sidepiece. Now yeah I did holla at the married chick last year, but that was partly because I was curious, but I did that and its over and I highly doubt if I go that way again...

Back to Saturday what I should have done was ask Lil One to go out to a club where some prospective females would be, but I bitched up and just dropped him off. I've always had this perception of Lil One that he would never be interested in going out, but earlier we talked and he said he would be down. Well I need to get out of this rut, so Lil One is about to be drafted as my "Going Out Partner", cuz you can't go to the club by yourself. Somebody gotta be there to laugh at your ass when you try to get at that chick and she doesn't even acknowledge you (LOL).

Sunday I watched some team named George Mason make it to the NCAA Final Four by beating UCONN, who I picked to win it all. There goes my bracket, although it was effed up from the first weekend. I was supposed to go bowling with my cuz Tiger, but I didn't even do that. See, what had happened was (lol) I needed to go washing really bad. I'm talking like probably 3 months worth of clothes. Trifling, yes. I'm the type that will continually by new clothes instead of washing. But I promised myself that I was going to wash sometime before the weekend was done, and Sunday was the day. I feel bad because I told her for the last few days that I was going to be down, but again, Mr Anti-social strikes again!

Oh, and I guess I got tagged by InsanelySane, so here goes:

10 different points of my perfect lover.

"She" must

1. Be ambitious.
Don't like chicks who don't at least have some goals in life

2. Like sports.
Of course not on the same level as me, but at least to the point where we can have a relevant conversation

3. Know how to cook.
I aint asking for the 7 course meals, but just the regular stuff (spaghetti, steak, chicken, I'm hungry)

4. Be able to hold a conversation, be versatile
I like chicks who can talk about who Flava should have kept, and then turn around and tell me how to diversify my portfolio. I love smart chicks.

5. No kids, no baggage, own job.
I put that all into one. Pretty self explanatory. Maybe if got one shorty (*Insanely*), I could make an exception.

6. She has to understand me.
Very important. I can be a complex person at times, one minute I might be hugging and kissing and the next minute I want my space. She can't let my unbalanced ass get to her.

7. Tell Jokes, be silly
I love silly chicks, because I'm silly myself. We all have that kid in us, somewhere.

Annnnd Now....

8. On the same level sexually as me.
Well ok, maybe not same level, but only a notch below. She can't turn her nose up at a new "thing" I might want to do.

9. Gotta "slob the knob"
To quote Biggie, "#9 should have been #1 to me".....Can't stand chicks who don't do it at all, or who act like it's a chore to do it. (You know, sigh or come up with excuses)..She aint gotta be like Tiny but I would like her to "service until completion".

10 a. Looks
Let me throw this disclaimer out there: I love black women, all colors and shapes....that being said, I'm a sucker for high yellow females (As I hear the collective BOO'S from the non-yellow crowd). It's a Catch 22 at times because those said females can be very stuck up and all about "what can he do for me" which I despise, but there is a magnetic attraction that I cannot explain. That being said, If she got the first 9 I don't care what color she is.

10 b. Body
A chick with a phat (not fat) ass is LOVE!.......Tits are nice, but aint that big of a deal to me.....and quite honestly, I like skinny chicks....find me a skinny light skin chick, and I'm there...LOL.....

Any "females" (and I can't stress that enough!) out there that's up to that challenge and you're in the Chicagoland area, hit me up.

Thanks for reading and sticking with me,

Robert Mack

@ Luvin Me
Well I'm *Luvin U* for coming by. Please visit as often as you like, I try to update at least 4 times a week. If nothing exciting happens in the present, look for me to delve into my past.

I only ask for the basics. If you can't even do that, then that's effed up...and yeah I'm a tad superficial, hey what can I say? Then watch, some chick that look like Rachel from School Daze or Alek Wek is going to come sweep me off of my feet!....but remember, they say that opposites attract...Light is usually attracted to dark and vise versa.

1. Be ambitious.

2. Like sports.
Check, I can talk about Basketball and Boxing.....

I hate football, unless its the Bears...

3. Know how to cook.
Check, I can make 7 course meals from scratch.

4. Be able to hold a conversation, be versatile
Check, I can't tell you how to diversify your portfolio, but I have basic knowledge about 401k plans.

5. No kids, no baggage, own job.
I thought everyone had some kinda baggage....
So I have baggage, a kid, and no job....*lol*

6. She has to understand me.
I hope a man can understand that I have my moods where I won't even answer the phone, for anyone, let alone want to be bothered in person.

So I understand people who are like me in that aspect...*lol*

7. Tell Jokes, be silly
I am too silly, I think

8. On the same level sexually as me.
What if she's a notch above you, will you be intimidated by her??

9. Gotta "slob the knob"
No the Beauty is a Beast


10 a. Looks
Not light skinned, I wish I was darker than what I am now...I never wanted to be "light skinnned(ed)"..*lol*

10 b. Body
I'm not skinny either....too much be skinny...

8 checks outta ten not bad, but no cigar....*lol*

Why you don't wanna mess with the married chick? She must be dark skin-ded.

I like your list. I'm offended by the "light skinned women are stuck up" comment. Nothing could be further from the truth. We're just misunderstood.

OMG, I was thinking the exact same thing.....
I didn't go to my friends candle party yesterday and she prolly made at me, but what had happened was....*lol*

Naw, if she's my friend she'll understand that sometimes/ most of the time, I don't feel like being bothered with crowds...sometimes with no one, like this weekend...

You're a Gemini right, you know Aquarius and Gemini's are soul mates...
that was my pick up line for this Gemini, years ago...I loved his multi personality ass too....

@ Insanely, part 1
When I say baggage, I mean you know it can't be any ongoing drama that's going to prevent us from being together....and yes, I know about Beauty is a Beast...and now after reading it again, I remembered why I can't read it at work...hard (in more ways than one) for me to walk around right about now...LOL...and if she (you) is a notch above me, wow I've yet to see that. Well I guess Tiny probably was a notch above me, she introduced this young boy to a few things...8 out of 10 sounds good enough for me!!!

Read about Tiny in "How did she do that?", that's as "deep" as I can get. LOL. get it? deep? Never mind, being silly......

@ Liquor/TV
Did the married thing and I'm not trying to do that anymore...and why do I want to be out with her and her husband?..What I look like? I was mad too, cuz the past few weeks this chick had been giving me mad rhythm too, she telling me that I seem like I'm a nice what that mean, I'm finna be the 3rd guy in your menage?

Sorry, my cuz Tiger is light skin, we call her Lite Brite...but she hates being lumped in with other light skin chicks, because she is nothing like a lot of them. She has a reaction just like you whenever I say something like that. LOL

@Insanely, part 2
Yep, gemini to the T...I could be happy and change to angry within 1 minute...I amaze myself sometimes...I hate crowds...I think some of it had to do with my own insecurities (told yall my childhood got my head all jacked up)...I'll explain later...gotta go to the 2nd job, yes the cable spot...Holla at yall tomorrow, thank you all for coming by and responding, seriously...

I spent half the weekend completing Surveys and MEMEs from you crazy Blogger folk! Nikki taggged me on that Top Ten right after I finished the Sex Chronicles Survey from Organized Noise. I called it Full Disclosure Weekend! LOL The rest of the weekend was spent studying for the Bar and forcing myself to return to church...(dont ask).

...and as for your skin-color preference. Everyone has a preference (skin color, body type, income level, etc) whether they admit to it or not...I am dark-brown, but I luuv tan skinned Brothers, and they like me (treat me) better than many of the darker Brothers go figure?!!??!

I love all types, shapes and sizes of black woman. But if I had to chose between light and dark meat. Then I definitely would chose the dark side. But hey I know the need to be alone with my own thoughts
