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.

Yesterday, I went to the optometrists office at Walmart and over to my father’s house to drop off school money for my nephew.
Thinking back to the optometrists I can barely remember the style of frames I picked out. The only thing I can remember about the optometrists office is that the male receptionist/assistant/whatever kind of reminded me of forgotten Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic with a beard. He also sounded a lot like Joe Artinger from the Don and Mike Show. If you haven't heard the Don and Mike Show before you can say he sounds like Shaggy from Scooby Doo.
He seemed like such a hippy far out kind of a guy to be working for an optometrist. It was fascinating listening to him talk. I almost expected him to say at any minute, “Hey, man want a Scooby snack?” or “They’re after us Scoob!”
As far as my nephew goes, yesterday I finally gave him his school money. I’m thinking about giving him a little more money when I get my next paycheck. It all depends on how my finances shake out.
Today, I primarily worked on my play. I edited it and ran a spell check. I hope it’s good enough to be selected.
Also, I pray that I will not have jury duty on Monday. I have #648 which is a high number. Hopefully, it’s a high enough number that I will not be called. My fingers are crossed!
Today, I’m wearing a beige brandless polo shirt and jean shorts with red flip flops.
