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.

This morning I went to Church. On the way over I almost felt as though the
We had a guest minister this week from California. He sounded very warm and fuzzy. I have to admit that his sermon seemed to meander a lot. I have no idea what he was preaching about. The service ended ten minutes later than usual.
I did something I rarely do. I went over to the parish hall and had a few cookies. They were holding the spring Opportunity Fair for various groups within the Church. As usual no one said anything to me. I just spoke to the little old lady that minds the book table and bought a MC Beaton book for 50cents. The book I bought was Death of a Scriptwriter. I picked this book because I like reading MC Beaton mystery series. I have read many of her Hamish MacBeth and Agatha Raisin books.
Afterwards I went to the movies and saw Transamerica at The Charles. I bought a small popcorn and a medium ginger ale. The ginger ale spilled on the floor as I was taking off my coat to get in the movie seat. Oh, well...
The reason why I wanted to see Transamerica was that I was curious about Felicity Huffmans Oscar nominated performance as a transexual. I have to say that she was really great in the movie. She was 100% believable as a man who wanted to be a woman. However, I do not know if her performance is good enough to edge out Reese Witherspoon.
Overall, I really liked the movie. It seemed almost as if it could be the basis for a TV series. Transexual balances the issues of being a brand new woman and a mom to her newly found teenage son. Watch the fun, hilarity, and poignant heartfelt moments.
