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 was again researching my disorder today. I find myself doing this a lot on Saturday’s. Anyway, I’m absolutely floored to find out that Steven Spielberg has Asperger’s Syndrome. This is someone I’ve admired for a long time. I worship at the film making alter of Steven Spielberg. I’ve seen nearly all of his movies. He is my all time favorite movie director and to think we share something in common.
Just in case you’re keeping score, Steven Spielberg is the only famous person to my knowledge who is 100% out about having Asperger’s Syndrome. Other famous people alleged to have the disorder are Bill Gates, Andy Warhol, Keanu Reeves, Andy Kaufman, and Glenn Gould.
Right now I feel like I’m playing a version of whose gay or whose a Jew, in this case it’s whose the Aspie. Also through my searches I found a much better definition of Asperger’s Syndrome on the Wikipedia web site.
Today I’m wearing a pink short sleeved print top and a cotton blue skirt. I would never in a million years wear this ensemble to work.
