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 only bad thing that happened today was when I realised in horror that my clothes did not match. I was out shopping in the mall when I opened my coat and realised my faux pas. So thus there was not much I could do but keep my coat closed. This all happened because I was in a rush to leave out to finish up holiday shopping before the crowds descended upon the malls.
This time I was shopping for my older nieces, Lisa and Alexis, and their brother, my nephew, Little David. Who am I kidding the only shopping Little David requires from me is a trip to the old ATM. He is extra easy to shop for because his only request is cash. My two nieces on the other hand are a bit difficult to shop for. So I did the only thing I could think of. I called one of them up and asked.
So thus, my nieces have two gift cards from Victorias Secret and my nephew has a hundred and something for Christmas. I also bought my father a new coat. I am not sure if he will ever get to use it as he rarely leaves out the house in winter. Also being extra cautious I asked my niece if my brother would be over for Christmas. I would hate to have him over there and not have a present for him. My niece assured me that Carlos said that he would not be able to make it over for Christmas. So thus I sighed a sigh of relief.
Also earlier today I downloaded a widget to my MacBook dashboard that allows me to listen to any BBC channel available for broadcast on my computer. Today, I listened to a full cast recording of a Christmas Carol on BBC7. This makes the second day in a row that I have listened to a radio production of A Christmas Carol. However, I have to say that this production was much better than the one on NPR last night. I also listened to a bit of BBC Gloucestershire. I chose to listen to this station to see what local BBC radio stations sounded like. Also my family is from Gloucester, Virginia so I was curious as to what Gloucestershire would sound like. I was disappointed to find out that it sounded like a regular radio station.
