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.

This morning I was on time for work. I attempted to walk down to the light rail station. Halfway towards my goal I saw a #20 bus and hopped on. The bus was not driven by the usual driver who kind of reminds me of a female zombie. I hope this means that she will be off work this week. I do not like it when she is driving because she is always late which in turn makes me late for work.

Yesterday, for the first time ever I physically shopped at Target. My previous encounter with Target was through online shopping. I bought my Doctor Who sweatshirt from their online store.

The reason why I ventured off to Target was because the woman whom I was the Secret Santa for wanted a Target gift card.

To me Target felt slightly more upscale than Walmart. I even found a bag specially designed to carry a yoga mat. I would never be able to find a yoga bag over at Walmart. I know because I tried to find one there.

Also while there I bought a couple of clothes items. I have to say that they do not have much of a Plus Size clothing section. It was almost as if they added the section as a brief afterthought. There were just about 2-3 racks of clothing to choose from. I do not know if this is indicative of Targets attitude towards plus sized women or if it was just this store. Or maybe even the attitude of the Towson/Lutherville area. One time I went to the Old Navy store in Lutherville and could not find a single item in my size. However, when I went to the Old Navy store in Security Mall I had no problem finding plus sized clothing. I dont know maybe the reason they do not stock much plus size clothing in that area is because fat people dont exist there...

Today, I have on some of the new clothes I bought last night at Target. I have to say that the clothes fit just like one would imagine clothing would fit from a store that has only 2-3 racks of plus sized clothing. The clothes are in my size but they cut wrong. They fit much tighter than they would if I had bought them from Kohls, Lane Bryant, or even Walmart.

The clothing I have on is a new pair of chocolate coloured slacks, an oatmeal coloured long sleeve spandex top, and a turqouise hoodie. I also have on my Nike MaxAir shoes.
