The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.

My Photo
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States

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.

Today, I’m running late. I caught the train at 6:15. I’m not sure if that will get me to work on time or just a smidge late. Oddly, enough I caught it with some of the usual suspects that I catch the 5:55 train with.

I’m not sure but I think today might be the first day of school for the city. I saw a couple of teens on the morning bus with notebooks. To the best of my memory I can’t recall seeing anyone with notebooks last week.

Today at work I was absolutely stunned beyond belief. I saw a sight I thought I’d never see. A noted cotton twill Dockers pants wearer wearing jeans!! It was simply shocking! There was no mistaking it this time, Arnold, was definitely wearing jeans today. I am simply shocked and flabbergasted!

My Labor Day Weekend

I didn't do much over the Labor Day weekend except watch movies. Lets see, I watched Excalibur (rented from netflix), Rushmore (bought from eBay), The Royal Tennebaums (bought from eBay) and the first half of Camelot (rented from netflix). I still have to finish watching Camelot...

I had planned on reading Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix but the 870 pages in the book made feel apprehensive about approaching it. I wonder if there’s a books on tape edition at the library?

The most exciting thing that happened over the weekend was that I got a postcard from the Guthrie Theatre. I have no idea how I got on the mail list of such a prestigious theatre. Anyway, they are looking for proposals from playwrights on collaborative efforts with non playwrighters. I can’t think of anyone who would be interested in collaborating with me on a play. I don’t know I think I should check the due date again and think of possible collaborators. Again, this is really weird what am I doing getting mail from the Guthrie?

I had a last minute costume er wardrobe change this morning. I was going to wear a brown shirt but decided to wear my black Today Show shirt with blue jeans and black Walmart shoes instead. I was feeling rebellious and punk rock.

Isn't that the damnedest thing when you see the same people at a usual spot when you're running early or late? That happens to me at the gym. I'm usually there at about 4:30 or so and there's a whole group of folks who I see every day at that time, but sometimes I'll skip out of work a little early and get to the gym at 2:30 or 3:00 and the same faces will be there! And there won't be unfamiliar faces in addition to them. Just all the same usual folks. I don't get it.
