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.

I woke up this morning later than usual. I was feeling apprehensive because over night snow was forecast by the local weathermen. I looked out the window and did not see a thing. I sighed a sigh of relief then I turned on my telly. City schools were not closed down for the day. A relief of sigh. Then...Eeek! County schools were closing down for the day! I live in the city but work in the COUNTY! OH GOD/GODDESS! NOooo! Was I on my way to walking into a terrential snow storm so powerful that it closed down the county but skipped the city?

When I finally walked out the door I saw what at first I though was a kindly neighbors doing. I thought I was looking at a finely salted down sidewalk. Then I noticed after observing that no one is kind enough to salt down several city blocks. To my horror I realized that I was looking at light dustings of snow. Just before my stomach began to do flip flops with this realization I took a swig of Pepto Bismol. Yep, I carry Pepto Bismol with me everywhere I go. You know just in case..... Anyway, it looks like the snow has started in the city. I wonder if we will get the 2-4 inches they predicted?

As far as the rest of my commute goes I walked down to the light rail station. I did this because I felt that the odds would be greta that the buses might run late on account of the threat of snow. I caught my train on time. However a series of delays occured on the commute. The light rail train stalleed at the North Avenue stop. The driver made an announcement. He said something about a freight train and the Woodbury stop. After a while the train chugged on. Until the train then went out of power at the Mount Washington stop. It took a while for the train to regain power. It looked like I would be late for work despite leaving out on time. In the end I was four minutes late for work. I think that means that I technically I was on time for work. I believe you are considered late if you arrive five minutes after your shift begins.

Today, I found my date stamper. I saw it while doing a brief scan of co workers desks. The stamper was on Lakeishas desk. I assume that she must have on one of my days off borrowed it and forgot to return it. On a previous day off she had borrowed it but remembered to return it. I am not going to say anything to her about it. Afterall, it is just a date stamper. I will buy a new date stamper and carry on. However, with the new date stamper I think I might customize it by painting it my favourite colour, purple.

Today, I have on a blue flannel shirt, indigo blue jeans, a sweater of red, white and blue, with metallis thread running throughout. I also have on my suede and rubber snowboots just in case the weather becomes treacherous later in the day.
