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 had restless sleep last night. Today is the first working day of daylight savings time. So I spent the entire night worried that I might over sleep. In doing this I did not get very much sleep.

I walked down to the light rail stop. On the way down I saw the #20 bus go by. Amazingly, the bus showed up at its posted time of 6:02. I was too far behind to run up and catch it. Besides, I doubt if the driver will be able to be on time for the rest of the week. Sadly, I also missed the train. This resulted in me being late for work.

Anyway, while on the train I noticed that at the Mount Washington stop a lot of cops got on the train to check tickets. These were actual Baltimore City Police Ofiicers and not the usual middle aged female ticket checkers. I think they were looking for someone or perhaps this was an imaginative way for them to make there monthly arrest quotas. I should note that they never checked my ticket. This is what made get the idea that they were looking for someone in particular.

They did catch a guy on the train without a ticket. They immediatly roughly hustled him off the train. There was a black cop who was particulary aggressive in his handling of the man. I almost wanted to file a complaint against him. There was no reason for him to be that rough towards the man. Clearly, this officer has aggression issues.

Sadly, no new episodes of Heroes will be on until next month. I do not know what I will watch to replace it. I suppose I might give 24 a try. I have never watched it before.

This evening I bought paint at Michaels to paint my date stamper with. I bought enamel paint because I was not sure if any of my acrylic paint would work. You see acrylic paint is plastic based and the date stamper is plastic so I was not sure if the paint would stick. I am 100% positive that enamel paint would work. Growing up my brother used to like to build airplanes, and battleships out of kits. The kits were always plastic and the paint that came with them was always enamel.

The brand of paint I bought was Testors. The shade is Purple Metallic #1531. I have already painted the date stamper. Now all I have to do is let it dry. Right now I am giving serious thought to painting the purple stapler I bought the same shiny colour of the date stamper.

Today, I have on blue jeans, a blue turtleneck, and my favourite sweater of blue, beige, white and tan. The shoes on my feet are New Balance 653s.
