Return of The Mack........Again.

What up yall,

I'm back.


Again.

A bit of a hiatus, due to a few things. The holidays, as well as "back to work" busy issues, as well as trying to live a little. I've only been on a handful of blogs over the past few weeks, so I am waaaaay out of the loop on things. I'll try to come by your page sometime in the next few days. So much has happened over the past few weeks, I don't even know where to begin. How about a brief synopsis (I got that word from the soap opera books my aunt used to read, lol)




The Traveler


I went to the Big D for New Years. It was quite eventful, to say the least, especially the plane ride. More on that later. My cuz Smooth threw a new years' shindig, and plenty of people came by, including the ladies. I was quite surprised. Not saying that my cuz throw sausage festivals, but it was good to see that it was a 50/50 ratio, I might even say there were more women then men. I even took time to look at my cuz in awe, seeing how much of a social butterfly and life of the party person he can be. That dude knows how to have fun. It made me think too. I need to quit trying to be so fuckin' perfect. I get caught up in trying to be too cool, too calm, too collected, too reserved in comments. Always trying to say the right thing, or what sounds like a good thing to say.

But, back to the night at hand. There was plenty of food and drinks. I sipped on a few drinks, but nothing like my birthday in 2005 when I was asking what color was the orange juice. I became sleepy around 2am, and told my cuz Tiger that I was going to just take a nap for about 10-15 minutes. I didn't wake up again until about 8am later that morning. So much for being the party animal.


The BMW (Black Man Workin')



I came back with the intentions of quitting my 2nd job (the cable spot) sometime this month. And then I looked at my year end results of working both jobs. I made more money that I've ever made before, and I love that extra dough coming in. For the last year and some months now, I haven't had to go around with that broke feeling. Not to say I'm balling, because I'm nowhere near it, but I haven't had to put a few dollars in the tank to get home now and wait to fill it up in the morning because that's when the direct deposit hits (yeah and don't act like yall aint been there before, lol). So right now I'm going to push it along until February.



The Mack



This past weekend I had 3 dates, with the possibility of 5. Let me tell yall, that shit is overrated! Thursday night I was hyped up because I imagined that I was some kind of real life Dre in "How to Be A Player". I was going to bang em, and keep it moving.


But it went nothing like that.

In fact, Monday morning felt like any other morning. I wasn't beaming with confidence, grinning with thoughts from the past weekend. I actually had an feeling of being unfulfilled. I still had questions that were left unanswered. Except the fact that the "playa" shit aint for me. Not that I was trying to, but the past weekend let me know further that I'm just a one woman type of guy. And after that weekend, I'm still looking. Maybe I could juggle 2, but not 3, 4, or definitely not 5.


The Final Destination


Let's back track for a minute to the aforementioned plane ride from hell. I was supposed to leave on Dec 29th at 1:36pm, with an arrival at 3:51 PM in Dallas. Poor weather, along with Poor Management decisions and I didn't get to Dallas until about 3:51 AM!!!! That's 3:51 AM!!!!! Oh yeah and did I mention that we were virtually stuck on the plane because we had to make an emergency landing in Waco, TX. Yes, Wacky Waco, where David Koresh was from. And I had to take a bus from Waco to Dallas. That's not even the half of it. But, your boy remained calm for the most part, even though a lot of people on the plane were not. Honestly, I was so happy that I was still alive after the ordeal that I was going to leave it alone. But, I got a letter yesterday apologizing profusely for the events and they offered me a free round trip ticket to wherever their company flies.

Hmm....so where could I go?


Could I use this to finally go to NYC?
Slish, Organized Noise, and The Mack.....The fun we would get into...LOL.....


Could go back to Dallas. I would like to see my cuz Wimpy before he leaves for Iraq again. That would be the sentimental choice.


Could go to LA, just to see what its like for struggling actors.


Could go to Atl to see a rainbow, but I'm not sure if things are alive and jumpin' down there.


What will I do? Decisions, Decisions..............



Sorry for the long delay, but I'm back. I think.

Thanks for Reading (still),

Robert L. Mack

dude its GREAT you are still in action...I think we all took a brief break..

the airlines were acting up all the way around over the holidays...glad you can get a free trip out of it...was it DELTA? They suck I still need to call them about my flight issues to Miami...

Yea being a pimp ain't easy and it sure ain't hard, but it sure ain't for me either...I don't even want to waste folks time if I see NO "potential" of a relationship...which is why I got cursed out last weekend...I told folks BEFORE I left for Miami that I wasn't taking BS and non-relationship crap into 07, but they must have thought I was playing and now that i am back and cut stuff off...or re-cut, folks was upset...why I don't know...

just be you Mack...just be you and if thats a good guy than GREAT

Rob Mack, Slish and Organized Noise set free in the streets of New York City. . . I don't know if they are ready for all that.

Got another suggestion for you. I'm going to Boston in April and there's going to be a party in Baltimore in May. Whatever you decide, let me know.

I think you actually started getting sleepy when we were watching skeeters. anyway, you know my vote for your ticket- or you can just quit tripping and move....march will be here before you know it.

Glad to see your up and at 'em again, sir. I know how you hate plane rides anyway, so, dang, I know that was crazy.

As far as where to go on your next trip, hopefully wherever you decide to go, it'll be well worth it.

I'm going to leave that comment alone about the rainbow in ATL...**smh**...

Hey Mr. Mack *waves*

Ok I'm not even going to comment on the plane adventure, let's just say a sista would have had a few choice words...all of them cursing. Thats a damn shame.

Oooh 3 dates? I know you didnt come on my blog like you're sooo unavailable and you had three dates? But eh I know more is in the future

How about you go somewhere warm? And all that chocolate out on the streets? Jebus save me now ;-)

@ Mr. Mack

Youre going to have to email me ur number, I looked in my phone and realized that my phone crashed shortly afterwards and it didnt save ur number
