Mack and the BEAN's talk

What's going on out there the blogworld....Sorry to keep you all waiting.



Well over the weekend, I took a lil' trip to the East Coast. Boston, to be exact. Home to two of my favorite bloggers, Missy the Negropino and Dynasty. This was my first time on a trip by myself so I was very excited, and a little nervous as well. I'm not the best flyer, so any little jerk and sounds of fans and engines going off and on makes my palms sweat as if there were microscopic sprinklers in them. The flight didn't start off well at first because as I'm going to my seat, I see some snot nosed kid lampin' in my seat. I'm calm about it, politely telling him that I'm assigned for this seat. He tells me the same thing. So then one of the flight attendants verifies my information, and agrees that I should sit there. But this kid is some special person apparently, and I would have to be moved somewhere else. Of course, the plane was packed, but they found me a seat next to the window. Ok, cool. BUT, this is a plane that features 3 seats on one side, and the window seat was next to a woman and her 3 year old child. For some reason, her husband was not seated with them, but behind them in a middle seat. So he asks if he could sit in by the window seat with his family, and I'll take the ever so popular (NOT) middle seat. I oblige, sort of reluctantly. At this point, I didn't care, I just wanted to get on and get the plane ride over with. But I kept my calm, and the husband was very grateful. As a matter of fact, he hands me his business card and mentions that he is director of broadcasting for the Minnesota Timberwolves, and to email him if I'm ever interested in any tickets. That's why I always keep my calm. Well at least I try.............




On Saturday night, Dynasty, her boy Skinny G (from the Brothers Man Law blog) and Missy take me to a nice italian eatery named Stella. This is a far cry from Harold's Chicken around my crib, I tell ya. Most of the food on the menu is written in Italian. "Damn can I just get some chicken fingers and call it a night?", I thought to myself. LOL. But we had a fun time, and the food was excellent. I had Chicken Cacciatore and some kind of bread thing I couldn't figure out. I also had a drink. Raspberry something that was strong, and of course I'm not a drinker. Skinny G is a sports editor and I love sports and know about a lot of sportswriters, as does he, so it made for great conversation.




After dinner, Dynasty's friend had a party not too far from Stella. The only thing is that her friend is gay, and you all know I'm not the biggest fan of gay males. But this is going to be interesting, so I was down.
We get there, and I tell you, I felt like I was in a Queer as Folk episode. For real. Guys hugged up, kissing on one another and holding hands and talking in lisps. (LOL). I didn't want no one to mistake me for fairy so I tried to hang around either Dynasty or Missy as much as possible. I'm going to need a drink. LOL. There is some lemonade that is spiked with vodka, so I begin to sip on that. Dynasty is being the social butterfly, and Missy says she wanted to go outside for some air so I went out there on the stoop and chilled with the Negropino.

I have another spiked lemonade.
I'm feeling real good.
I'm saying what up to every body walking in and out of the door.
I have another spiked lemonade.
I'm feeling REAL good now.


Missy pours some of her lemonade into mine and I'm like hold up! I went to go stand and felt a lil wooziness. I think I'll stop while I'm ahead. I hate when I get a naseous feeling and I absolutely hate to vomit, so I chilled out from the sippin'. I was tipsy, but I was well aware when I heard one of the "guys" say to me and Missy "Downstairs is where you talk, and upstairs is "come fuck me in my hole".

"Yep, full chromed for situations like this" - Notorious BIG


It was time to go. LOL.


As if I thought the evening couldn't get more interesting, we all go to a club called Vertigo, which was crazy packed. There was an upstairs and a downstairs. Dynasty decided to stay upstairs at the bar and "mingle", so Missy takes me downstairs where they are bumpin and grinding. There was a carribean festival in town, so the reggae music was abundant on this night, but the DJ didn't leave out any of today's bangers. Missy tried to get me to drink a long island ice tea with her, but I had one sip and that 'ish was strong. I had to pass up before I pass out. LOL. So after about an hour or so of leanin' wit it, 2 steppin', and snapping fingers, Skinny G come up to me like "We gotta go", because Dynasty had a ......well um lets just say "wardrobe malfunction" . LOL. I'll let her tell you all about that on her blog.
It was 2 am and I was spent. The night is over. Time to catch up on some zzzz's.


SUNDAY is here, and I was supposed to go on a tour of Fenway Park, but mother nature decides to put a damper on my plans for that as it rained the entire day. Not to worry, because I still had my share of sunshine when Missy and Dynasty joined me for some brunch at some small place called Mike's Diner, which specializes in breakfast and is only open from 6am-3pm. This must be a happenin' spot because it too was also packed with Bostonians. And after eating there, I see why. Ain't nothing like steak eggs and grits! LOL!
So after catching itis, I'm ready to take a nap now. We were supposed to go see the movie Idlewild, but after hearing not so great reviews (a critic referred to it as Idle-mild), we just went against it. So I guess you can say that Sunday wasn't as action packed, but then again aren't Sundays supposed to be easy goin'?..............


Unfortunately, all good things come to an end, and I was dropped off early at the airport on Monday morning. But it gave me a lot of time to reflect back. I must say, that my lack of activity over the summer was more than compensated for from this past weekend. I got to kick it with 2 lovely ladies for a weekend. What more could a guy ask for? So hugs and kisses, pounds and handshakes, and all that stuff to Missy and Dynasty. And I can't forget Skinny G. Good Luck when you run for prez (LOL)......

And just to make sure I wasn't dreaming, I have pics below............enjoy.....

LOL! You painted a very colorful picture of the gay party...LOL! It wasn't nearly as touchy-feely as you made it sound... LOL! You must admit they were very funny, though. Champagne James actually asked me for my lipgloss...LOL!

Thanks for being a good sport. My co-worker would have killed me if I hadn't showed up.

Good times...

Hey Rob! I was just catching up with your posts! Y'all are some good looking people, out having fun, shaking your groove thang, LOL! Glad you had a good time. Are you still planning on coming to Dallas in November? I might not be able to imbibe on the alcoholic spirits, but, if you come, I'll definitely show you a good time.

Hey, your weight loss is going great. I'm just now losing the 2 pounds I gained in water weight last month, but already I feel so much better. I'm working harder each day, working with the hand weights and the intense aerobics. I might not lose any weight but I sho' be sweating up a tropical storm around here! I love it! I'm supposed to be shedding at least 30 pounds of upper body weight (yes, the boobs have me top heavy. I'ma keep it real, LOL!). I can't wait. The next five to six months I'm looking forward to because then I'll be heading under the knife, reshaping and contouring me back to my youthful appearance and glow, LOL!

Goodluck to us both and I'll talk to you later!

Whooo wee Mack! You look adorable in those pics! HAWT-STUFF! Sounds like you had a great time!

I'm th polar opposite of you though....I love planes and I love flying! I wanna learn to fly a plane one day. That's my mission.

P.S Queer as Folk was the shit! I loved Brian and Justin's little romance. Trust me, rent the DVD's and you'll learn to love the gays. LOL. They are grrreat. I advise all heterosexual black men to go rent those DVD'S. Do it! You will learn to like the gays and before you say it... NO renting it doesn't make you "gay".
