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 evening I did something really stupid. I paid for takeout food at Shanes on Fayette Street with a hundred dollar bill. This all happened because I thought I handed the guy a ten dollar bill. I felt so embarrassed. He had to go to a special place in the store to get change for me. I apologised profusely and offered him the ten but he was not having any of that. In retrospect I think I was being silly for apologising. I did pay for the food, after-all, just with a higher domination of money.
Also, I have to admit that I was looking over my shoulders when I left out of the takeout. I was afraid that maybe I had made too much of a scene and that it was a distinct possibility that I might get robbed. The restaurant is in a shady part of the city. It is near the old abandoned Grey Hound bus station. Luckily, nothing happened.
Just for the record I almost never leave out of the house with that much money. This was an isolated incident that I hope never occurs again.... especially in that neighborhood,....at night.
