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.

This time the train was five minutes late. I was worried when I saw the Penn Station train arrive at the time the Hunt Valley train usually shows up. So worried that I began eating my breakfast, Utz potato chips, and a sandwich of provolone cheese, veggie ham, on a light English muffin right at the light rail stop. I did this because I was afraid that the train would be fifteen minutes late again. I missed eating my breakfast at work yesterday and I did not want to repeat the same episode. Instead the train was five minutes late. I’m on time this morning.
I’m working on my mail art again. I got back in contact with Rev Paul. He’s the mail artist who’s on the local art mob mail list. The mail list is mostly comprised of area artists and writers. I’m happy to report that Rev Paul is still at the same address as before. Also he’s putting together a mail art show for the Creative Alliance. He said not to submit anything until after September. In the mean time I’ll send out a postcard his way.
At work we’re out of the magical elixir of life, Mountain Dew. The closest substitute in caffeine content is Pepsi.
So thus I was very drowsy this morning. I woke up when I thought I heard Brian mention he had won Clay Aiken tickets on the radio. I found this bit of informnation down right hilarious. He actually called in to get Clay Aiken tickets! I can’t believe he of all people called in! I thought he was somewhat hip as far as music was concerned. The guy’s a big time rock n’ roll fan. Oh, well from U2 to Clay Aiken? I suppose it can happen to anybody. Yeah, yeah, I know this coming from someone who likes Nilsson.....
Also, before, I could stop myself today I complimented Li Jie on the dress she was wearing. I couldn’t help it. The words just popped out of my mouth, “Lovely dress.” I don’t normally say anything to anybody at work unless it’s work related. So I was shocked that I was actually moved enough to say anything. I have to say I had never seen a dress that color and it complimented her perfectly. It was a very feminine cornflower blue dress. She also had on earings that matched. A little later in the morning Helena was talking to her about the dress. So I suppose I wasn’t alone in feeling it was an incredible dress that looked absolutely fabulous on her.
In other work related fashion news Arnold wore a dark solid colored shirt. This is news because 99% of the time he wears plaid or stripped shirts.
