About Cheesie Mack

Ronald 'Cheesie' Mack

Hi!

Everyone calls me Cheesie, but my real name is Ronald A. Mack. The A is for Apton, which is a weird middle name. It’s my mother’s maiden name. I think most kids HATE their middle names. I actually don’t. R. Apton Mack is actually kind of cool sounding…but I like Cheesie best.

Here’s some stuff about me:

  1. I have brown hair, brown eyes, and three freckles on my nose. I also have a whitish scar on my thumb where a fishhook stabbed me when I was on a lake with my dad. I was eight and fooling around. Don’t ask.
  2. My birthday is August 16. I’m now 11, which is, IMO, a very cool age to be.
  3. My ears stick out. But you can probably see that in my picture above. It used to bother me, but now that I’ve written about my ears in my book, a zagillion (that’s a gazillion times bigger than a gazillion) people know, so I say…so what? And this is the last time I’m going to mention them on my website!
  4. I have three grandparents (plus one who died a long time ago), two aunts, two uncles, and two first cousins. I also have the meanest older sister in Massachusetts. Cheesie's Family TreeMaybe the United States. Maybe the world! Those tiny boxes and circles to the right are my family tree (which I made as a school assignment in fourth grade). Click on it to see it bigger and learn more about everyone in my family.
  5. I am a very fast runner. One of the fastest in my class, but I haven’t actually raced every kid. I’m on the sixth grade cross country team.
  6. I like sports. Especially baseball and soccer. And I’m a good swimmer.
  7. I read lots of books. Especially adventures.
  8. I love to write about my adventures.
  9. I love words.
  10. And I like making lists…like this one.

  1. You know about all your base are belong to us? Did you know that (according to wikipedia) some people went around hanging up signs that said All your base are belong to us and some other people thought the signs were from Iraq? And a few years ago, when youtube was down, they just put ALL YOUR VIDEO ARE BELONG TO US on the site?

    • My advice when doing a Dutcher: “don’t laugh or you’ll definitely choke!”
      And thanks for your nice comment…and sorry about your older sister!
      I am as real as my book says I am!

  2. Dear Chessie,
    I just finished your book it was amazing. And youknow they say don’t judge a book by it’s cover well i did and about everyone else in the world to,Anyways Chessie I have a couple of questions. 1. Are you a real person. 2. If you don’t want people always going up to you saying ” chessie is eating Mac ‘n’ Cheese just eat mac ‘n’ cheese at home. I also have a older sister who is ververyveryvery X1,0000 anooying so I feel your pain

  3. Do you like rollercoasters? I do. What’s your favorite color? Mine’s orange. What’s your favorite holiday? I like Halloween.

    • Rollercoasters? I love ’em! Read page 190 of my book.
      And orange is definitely my favorite color, too! So, we’re the same on those two.
      But I’d have to say Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Halloween is cool, but I like the big meal (pumpkin pie…yum!) and all the family and football.

    • I think I’m going to put up a list of who’s everyone on the cover. When I do, I’ll announce it in the NEW STUFF section on my home page. Stay tuned!

    • His name is Bob Splawn. I didn’t write anything about him in my book. He and I don’t hang out very much, and I don’t really know him very well. So why is he on the cover? I guess my illustrator (Adam McCauley) liked his face.

  4. I now know what kevin lookes like.I still don’t know what alex lookes like.I looked at kevin in your book.Then I looked at the pizza party pic.I saw kevin.why was he there?was Ms.Crespo ever invited?

    • That is NOT Kevin at the pizza party. It’s his dweeby little brother Alex. Georgie did NOT invite Alex. Lana did. Mrs. Crespo was there. She took the pictures…and put LOTS of red pepper on her pizza because she said she really likes spicy food!

  5. Cheesie,I have a to-do list.do you have a to-do list?if you do,can you tell me the top two things you want to do? if you were to have any other name besides ronald or cheesie or chee,what would you want that name to be?can you put a picutre of alex and kevien welch(alex on top)

    • Nope. No to-do list for me. I like my name and nicknames, so I don’t have another I’d like. There’s a picture of Kevin on page 126. Alex looks a lot like him, just dweebier.

  6. Hey Cheesie. Hve you ever wished you had different coloured eyes or hair? By the way, has your sister EVER been nice to you?

  7. maxxmius,you can not p.s.s. 2 times! I have a ulcelele.cheesie,first you say you play kazoo.now you say you don’t play.what’s up with that?

    • Well, yeah, I said I play the kazoo. If you think that’s really an instrument…
      The way I play it, I’m not so sure.

  8. Hey Cheesie, your book rocks! I couldn’t think of any other book cooler than this ! You and Georgie are awesome! Please reply ASAP 😀

    P.S.: Do you have a crush on Lana ? You kept describing about her..

    P.S.S.: Do you play any instument ? I play the piano.

    P.S.S.: I can’t wait to try a BLART and a BLT sandwich!

    Thanks.

    From: Maximus To: Messers Cheesie and Georgie. ( Kinding about the Messers ! )

    PLEASE REPLY SOON YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME !!!
