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 bus #1 bus I got on this morning was leaking rainwater over almost every seat. It made me wonder how it is determined which bus the driver takes out in the morning. Is it the drivers choice or does someone choose it for them? Who knows maybe our driver is not very well liked and thus he got the crappy bus.
Also I have to say that ever since the big Baltimore bus rescheduling of 2005 that nearly every bus I attempted to board in the morning has been crowded. The buses were so crowded that drivers would not allow any new passengers on board. So thus, there were many a morning where the buses passed me by. Whenever this happened I had to walk several blocks down to the light rail station. This whole situation was due to the fact that they were running the short Neoplan buses in the morning instead of the regular sized buses. I suppose some genius over at the MTA felt that no one really rides the bus at 5am in the morning.
Recently, it should be noted in fact just around Christmas time, they started running regular sized buses in the morning. So thus I have gotten a seat as usual instead of having to hotfoot it down to the light rail station. I hope that they do not go back to running the short buses in the morning ever again.
