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.

The above picture is one of the paintings I completed this August. It's acrylic paint on Bristol board.
Today, the bus and light rail were both on time. So as a result of this I’ve been on time for an entire straight week! I hope that the MTA does as good a job next week as they did this week.
Last night I think there was some kind of a get together for people who are members of the crablogs web ring. I didn’t go because I’m lousy with social situations. Now, if they were going to meet at a concert or a movie theater on like they did with the artmob mail list then I would have come along.
The Crablogs get together was at some restaurant where I imagined they all sat around drank and swapped funny stories about working in the computer industry. I don’t drink and as far as talking goes I’m pretty laconic. Also my day job has nothing to do with programming computers. So even if I went I wouldn’t have much to do or say.
Yesterday, at work things were back to normal. The co-worker was back to saying, “Good Morning!” The general atmosphere was bright and cheery. The only unusual thing that happened at work was that Arnold wore a long sleeve shirt. As I’ve written before 99% of the time he wears a short sleeve button down cotton shirt. So whenever he wears a long sleeve shirt, I feel it’s blog worthy.
Today, I’m wearing an olive green t-shirt that I bought from Sears a couple of years ago. I got it because I liked the yellow-green flower design that’s emblazoned across the chest. This I believe is the only item of clothing I own that’s not from Walmart, K-Mart, or Value City. Along with the shirt, I’m wearing my black pants and black canvas Walmart tennis shoes.
