Lost Blog: Where's Mac?

Hey guys. Just wanted to drop in and let you all know that I wasn't involved in a Hanso-initiated avalanche or a massive electromagnetic explosion (anyone claiming otherwise is a damn dirty liar). The truth is, my wife and I welcomed our first child recently and I've intentionally avoided the computer, the Web and anything else that distracts from my family time. Everyone is good and the Lost Blog is going to continue when the show returns, but I figured a few of you would appreciate a little inside info. Hope everyone is well! -- mac

Congratulations mac! Great way to pass the season break. Baby "vacc" is due in another week or so.
As parents, we've got to do everything we can to protect them from the Others!

Happy New Year!

Did you name your baby Artz or Echo?

#3. Posted by: Mhausen11 at December 28, 2006 1:51 PM

CONGRATS MAC!!!! I'm impressed that you and your wife were smart enough to plan for the birth to be during the LOST hiatus. Smart move! LOL

CONGRATS!

#4. Posted by: KG at December 28, 2006 3:02 PM

Congrats. Greating timing, before the first and while Lost is off the air. :)

#5. Posted by: PZ at December 28, 2006 3:13 PM

Mac,

Heartiest congratulations to you and your wife! Nice timing too!

BUT...You've just got to know that us enthusiastic conspiracy buffs are simply not going to let this rest. We're going to need some details...sex, name, weight, length, APGAR, date and time of birth, Tailie or Other...all that good stuff.

Vacc - we're going to need same from you.

Wonder if they make infant-sized Lost-wear...

Wow, that is really great Mac. One other question. Is this your first child? I have a three year old son, and it is great.

The reason that I logged on was to tell everyone what I saw a couple of days before Christmas.
You see, it seems that the guy that plays Desmond was in a movie about the last days of Christ, and guess who he played. JESUS! As a Christian, I was very happy. You see I believe that he too is a Christian. Why else would he be in a movie that would only be seen on a Christian channel if he himself was not a Christian? I do not believe that money was a motivating factor.
Anyway, I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukah or Happy Holiday. God Bless y'all and Happy New Year.

#7. Posted by: Batteries Included at December 28, 2006 8:59 PM

I found the movie that Desmond is in (forgive me I keep forgetting his real name). It is called "The Gospel of John".

Everything changes now. Being a dad is the most important thing you'll ever do.

#12. Posted by: Deep Cover at December 29, 2006 10:26 AM

After re-reading your post, Mac, I saw that you wrote that this is you first child. I am so happy for you. I am sure that you are going to love being a father.

@Deep Cover You are so totally right. It is the most important thing you can ever do.

In the words of the great Chris Rock... "I take care of my kids". (Yes Christians can watch Chris Rock. He did play the Thirteenth Apostle in Dogma ya know).

#13. Posted by: Batteries Included at December 29, 2006 7:11 PM

Congratulaions to Mr. and Mrs. Slack Mocum :>)

And ... welcome to the wonderful world of diapers, baby food, and early morning awakenings. You are in for a great ride, mac, so hop on, hold tight, and cherish every moment!

@ Batteries Included - I saw "The Gospel of John" a week or so ago also. I yelled to my wife, "Hey, there's the guy that plays Desmond."

Happy New Year to everyone!!!!!

#21. Posted by: ButchM at January 1, 2007 4:25 PM

Mac - congratulations to you and your wife. It's the new little one that is lucky to be born into a family of humor and obviously love. Thank you for letting us know where you were, as you were missed! I have a feeling with a new little one in the house, your blogs will be full of typos and unfinished sentences as you rush to see why he/she's crying right in the middle of one of your brilliant posts. Not to worry - we'll understand... We just want you back! Happy New Year!

#22. Posted by: BunnyLover at January 2, 2007 9:53 AM

Congratulations Mac & Mrs. Mac!!!

Cherish these moments - this is the stuff life is made of! Take pictures every day for a while... it will be so hard to remember later that your child was ever as little as right now. :)

We're all very happy for you!! Congrats & Enjoy!

A major "Mazel Tov" to you, Mac!

Enjoy every second...don't wish it away for it flies by...just close your eyes and take a sniff of the back of your newborn's neck, and hold on to that memory...It goes by so quickly.

Wishing you only the best; and, by the way, I vote for "Baby Aaron Ekko Slocum".

OTMD...(only thirty more days!)

  4. Do not post under multiple identities and then have inane conversations with yourself. This kind of nonsense will get you banned from the blog.
