Random thoughts of the Great Midwestern Man

It's been a very busy and hectic week, so today's installment is going to be some summarized thoughts on current events and what's on my mind.


* I went to court yesterday. I was nervous because the judge was no-nonsense, scolding anyone who didn't have their information ready. My case was so old that he passed it off to the prosecutor. But the prosecutor was not as scolding. He seemed rather pleasant. "Robert, I could make you pay this fine, but........" All I have to do is bring in a few forms next month, and my 1541 fine is reduced to 220. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

* I think I like "Chappelle # 1" more than I might have said in the past. She is a really nice, smart girl, and can be pretty when she wants to be. She's brown skinned, has medium brown eyes, and has cute dimples. And we have a good, friendly relationship. I just wish that she didn't have a daughter, and plus she's a smoker. She claims that she doesn't do it much, but the other day I noticed a pack of Newport's in her purse. I'm not too fond of smokers, sorry for those who do.

* Chappelle # 2 called me too, left a message saying "Hey Robert, I just wanted to call you, didn't want to be a stranger". I wasn't going to call back, and I haven't, yet. But I didn't want to be a total a..hole so I did send her an email. But she's on vacation. I might call her. Maybe.

* The chick that fell off of the face of the earth (who I've left unnamed) finally called me, when I sent a 2nd email to her asking where the hell she was (thanks to Tiger for recommending I email her one more time)....We had a good 30 to 40 min convo about things, and she's just going thru some things (she lost job, apt). She had to move out of her apt and is staying with a friend until she can get back on her feet, but she does start a new job on Monday. She apologized over and over for not calling me, but I understood. I don't like talking to too many people when I'm down and out as well. Of course me being the classic overthinker thought it was something with me, but she assured me that it was nothing with me whatsoever, and I even went over to see her yesterday.


* I got my new schedule at the second job (the cable spot). I'm going to be off on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays starting May 21st. Just in time for the summer.

* To my fellas who suffer from razor bumps, you might want to invest in some Andis clippers (the kind I currently have are called the Styliner II) . Just adjust the blades a little, and it gives you a close shave (as if you used a razor blade) without scratching up your face and causing bumps like other clippers (like Wahls) do. I wanted to wait about 2 weeks before giving it my full approval, but I've been using them for about 10 days now and my skin (especially under my neck) hasn't been this smooth since before I started shaving, honestly. Andis clippers are more expensive than what you would find in Walmart, as they are the kinds that a lot of barbers use. But TRUST ME, its worth it. You can find them at your local Chinese (LOL) beauty supply store for like 50 or so, but you can get them off of Ebay for about 35-37 (which is where I got mine.)

*Another note about shaving, I decided to go with the baby face for court so I could look young and innocent and non threatening (LOL), and I was looking at my bald face, laughing, thinking when I was 16 I couldn't wait to grow facial hair so I could look about 25, and now that I'm 26 I don't mind looking 16 now.

*I'm going to get my TB by my b-day (May 27), and no one is going to stop me! Well except for the state, if they don't allow me to renew my license, haters....


That's it for now, thanks e'ybody for reading, Hope you all have a great weekend,


Robert Mack

Geminis unite!! I love my b-day. It falls right in the middle of the year, and it always falls at or near the 3 day memorial day weekend.

@MsNEwBooty (I found u...)
I gotta go back one more time on May 4....I still haven't hooked up the new cordless phones *wink*

@Paula
Another Gemini in the building! I hope I get it too. Would love a black one, but TB's are so nice to me that I would take any color except Mary Kay pink (LOL)

@Phoenix
It does seem like I have a lot going on. Yet my life seems so boring to me. But it is going to get better especially now that I aint gotta work at the cable spot on saturdays starting in late may.

Baby, nothing is wrong with it. But you know how it is, I have no kids, so I would like for my potential mate to be the same. And then you got the potential baby daddy drama, the daddy getting mad cuz I'll probably be more of a daddy to the shorty than him, you know all that stuff. And then you gotta find babysitters and whatnots. But like I tell anyone, if a chick has like 8 or 9 out of 10 things I'm looking for, I won't let a kid deter me from being with her.

Glad court went well for you BlackMan.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that goes into seclusion whne i'm down and out, but for some reason, my own friends don't understand it. Well its not for them to understand how I do me....

People take it so personal when you don't talk to them without actually putting themselves in your shoes...

LEO in the HOUSE..August baby!

Anyway what's up with the Newport smoking? Light smokers don't smoke Newports. Light smokers smoke Virginia Slims and Salem Ultra Lights. Newports are on the same level as Camels and Winston..extra tar. Now you know what that basement smell is...
