The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.
I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

Today at work Brian called a meeting in Dave’s office. Dave is Brian’s supervisor. It was a very eerie other worldly Twilight Zone experience for me.
I was immediately shocked and horrified by the office decor. I found it eerie because as I looked around his office I saw a number of things that I own and in the same exact color and design!
I saw a Currier and Ives mug. I own that same exact mug. Same design everything! I saw a candle warmer on his desk. I own that same exact candle warmer it’s called the Cozy-Up Warmer. I bought it at Michael’s. However, I imagine that he probably uses his Cozy-Up Warmer to keep his coffee warm and not to warm up scented candles. Also there was a small purple fan in the corner. I own a small purple fan just like it!
However, eeriest of all was that on a file cabinet sat a bright blue embroidered box that I knew contained Chinese Meditation balls. I know this because I own the same exact box in the same bright blue color! I know that if you opened the lid the interior of the box would be a bright red color and two meditation balls would sit inside.
I have never been inside anyone’s office where I had so many inanimate items in common. It was like being in an episode of the Twilight Zone!
