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.

I had to come into work this morning because I signed up for overtime. Yesterday, Jai Li finally, showed up for week. I was extremely happy to see her. She was coughing and stuff. So I can assume that after nearly a week off she is not quiet well. I hope she hasn’t caught SARS or something. Still there was no sign nor mention of Keisha. I’m not sure if she left or not. I’ll have to check the daily stat sheet to see if her name is still on it. Damn, I hate looking at that confounded thing. I always get depressed after looking at it. I guess I’ll have to pump up my dosages of both St. Johns Wort and Echinacea.
Yesterday, I wore the shirt I loved when I saw it in the store. I picked it up because it was my size. I didn’t bother trying it on. I was horrified when I finally put it on at home. It’s one of those stupid tight fitting shirts. I hate shirts like that.
Today, I’m wearing my NBC Today Show t-shirt. I got it when I visited New York a couple of years ago. It came directly from the NBC store in Rockefeller Plaza. When I went to the NBC store I also bought a Friends t-shirt and an ER t-shirt. I wonder if I could buy more TV show shirts online. I’m sure NBC must have a store online as well as the other networks.
Right now as I write this at 6:20 AM, I’m listening to WEAA, 88.9. They are playing a Ray Charles tribute show. I love the guy that hosts the show. I only find myself listening to his show when I have to come into work on Saturdays or when I wake up early on Saturdays. I like the old r&b songs that he plays. It’s stuff like you guessed it Ray Charles, Etta James etc. Sometimes, I think I was born in the wrong era. Listening today makes me realize even more how much I love Ray Charles’ music. I own two of his best of cd’s. So I own almost all of the songs that they are playing this morning. I hope that I will be able to pick up the station at work and continue listening there.
Odd Occurance: Outside the First Mariner Arena there was this man sitting on the sidewalk across from the light rail station at around 5:50AM. He looked a little like Jerry Garcia. He had a sketchbook out and appeared to be sketching the buildings. Who gets up at this hour of the day to sketch? Also it looks like there will be some kind of an event at the arena. I noticed there were a lot of red t-shirts stacked in the windows of the arena. I suppose they were left there to be sold whenever the event started.
