2 thumbs up!!!

Damn, is it already over?

That was my feeling Saturday night after the 3rd performance of the play was over. I had a wonderful time. The pics of me on stage are kinda dark, my apologies, I didn't realize that its better to turn off the flash because the light on the stage provides the light.

Me in 7o's fit

Me as Jason with the Dr. and her son. She's jumping in on the XBOX action and proceeds to whup me in Mortal Kombat.

Give it up for the cast

Pops and Me. Still trying to figure out how I grew to be 6'2 and he's only 5'8.

Moms, Me, Lil Brother (Todd Mack), lil Sis, and Dennis (remember when I went to the Bulls/Heat game way back when I first started bloggin? Dennis is the one that was with me. Todd Mack, all of 15, think's he's the flyest and every girl wants him. You know what? He hasn't proven me otherwise. More on him later.

The boy Lil One came thru to support.

Nsane Lee Sane graced me with her presence. Damn fellas she kinda dope. I'm mad cuz Lil One took the pic and didn't get "all" of the amenities, if you catch my drift! LOL

Ok I'll end the pics there, although I have more in the hopper, including Gina, Chappelle #2, and others.

Many Thanks to Nsane Lee Sane and Knockout Zed for coming by. I was kinda mad at the munkee (LOL) because he didn't stay to at least give a pound or a Marlon Wayans handshake (you know with the extra pat on the head and back), but its all good.

I'm tripping on myself because my lil brother Todd Mack might be more clairvoyant than his 27 year old big brother when it comes to picking up on women's interest.....LOL...I'm supposed to be the one showing him how things are. Anyway, he's telling me that a chick in the play named Staci (arguably the baddest chick in the play) is feeling me. I laugh him off, like young boy you don't know what's going on. So the next day after the play is over and everyone is saying their goodbyes, Staci comes over to me while I'm trying to take pics with everyone and she's like "Ok Rob, let's keep in touch." I reply with "Yeah no doubt, I got your number", and then she comes back with "No you don't. You aint never called me before. You aint gonna call me", she says in that daring voice......

I'll call her....maybe.

Gina did come as promised, but it was what she didn't do afterwards that didn't sit too well with me. Let's backtrack. Me and her have talked just about everyday for the last month or so, and we've spent time with each other for the last 3 weekends prior to this last weekend. Well we hadn't really talked that much this past week because she was visiting her mom out of town. She came back on Saturday and came to the show, but when I tried to get her to spend more time she declined because she was tired and wanted to eat and go home to sleep. I'm like "ok, that's the same shit I was on!" I was tired after going to my first job and knocking out a couple of hours, but I wanted to unwind on the long weekend with a drink or two (although I'm not a drinker) and a walk along the beach or something, seeing that it was a beautiful night in the city. Yeah the beach part sounds lame, but that's what I'm into. Anyways I tried to do some cajoling, to no avail. I haven't spoken to her since. She called yesterday, but I haven't returned the call. What do you all think? Am I trippin? That's why I tell anyone who was ready to give her the wifey label to just chill out on that talk. This is a day-2-day evaluation, and I guess she failed one of the tests. But one bad grade out of the bunch can be dropped right? Professor Mack says so. But another low mark might prove costly..........

So now its back to work, and still trying to fill out the summer league roster. LOL. Remember the "summer" technically does not start for another 2 days. Unfortunately the play caused me to miss out on the Puerto Rican Day parade, which is a free festival of fine Boriquas walking and talking. Oh well. Gina is part Dominican and knows a lil spanish, so I guess that's my hispanic fix for now.

As for the acting, this may have been my last production of the year. I have no more vacation days for this year at the 2nd job (1st job I have plenty), so I doubt If I'll find the time to do anything else. But I plan on hitting 2007 harder than something of mine after standing next to

Thanks again all for reading,

Robert Mack

The play was good, i'm mad that I didn't get no pictures with you, but it's cool. I'm surprised that nsane showed up I thought she was all hollywood talk. She has proven me wrong. Don't give up on my girl Gina maybe she was tired and didn't want to bother you.

Dude, I didn't wanna infringe on family time. Plus I was in the back, solo, looking like a male groupie with a camera, so I dipped.

I'll be back in the Chi hopefully for the Taste. I'm trying to see you, Nsane (hell fuck yeah!), and Hassan. Y'all reached out when I needed it.

Yeah my bad I meant to get some pics with you....I don't know what happened....Oh yeah I was talking with dude all night from Barbershop 2!!!! (LOL).......

LOL, You know I'm still talking about getting hard when a fine chick gives me a is adorable, he made me feel good when he asked me to play with his cars...awww...I thought putting up the pics of them but just said eff it. I guess I want to keep the chicks I holla at off of the blog. But stay tuned, I may change my mind and put them on.

Everybody says that my father is nice called him yesterday and left a message like "what do you be doing to these women?" LOL!!!!! One thing I love about him is his modesty. I've never heard him say how fine he is, not even in a playing way, so I guess since I pattern my "game" after him, I try to stay a modest and humble person as well.

Yeah I understand. But I aint no Hollywood dude. I hate them stuck up fucks (sorry on a rant. I'm hearing how this chicago guy Jeremy Piven is a real a-hole) I was trying to get pics with everyone that came to personally see me. But its cool, if you come back for the Taste, let me know. But I suggest going on a weekday or early as hell on the weekend, because me and Tiger went last year and you could barely move. You couldn't even get at no chicks cuz it was too packed. I plan on going on a Monday this year.

@B's Finest
Hey you...yeah I remember your pretty face from Missy or Free Agent or whatever she is calling herself these days...LOL....Thanks for coming by....I'm tripping on her a little, I need to chill out. Please come back as often as you like, I try to blog at least twice a week.

Thanks. LOL@ wanting my pop's number...he got enough women. I need some now.

Nsane said she might be moving to Dallas, so we could still hook up with her there along with your brother Smooth...

Congrats on the play. Do some more acting if its your passion.. Don't stifle your creative side. I did that for years. Now I'm addicted to blogging.

Had a dream the other night.In it my daddy told me to write for a living instead of earning these pennies from the

Yeah I definately have love for the acting thing....I wasn't nervous at all, nor did I mess up any lines. I aint sure about Gina. Its been a weird few days, thats all I'm going to say.

Paula D.
Thanks. I saw her yesterday. Not a good interaction.

Thanks for coming by. It was definately great and I was so thankful that a lot of my peoples came to see me. Now if I do a better job of telling people in advance instead of last minute, I'll probably get an even better turnout.

Hmm.....maybe I need to take our pic off then huh....*wink*
