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’m late for work. I found it difficult to wake up from the puddle of sweat I was sleeping under. Last night was very hot and I found it difficult to get to sleep. I don’t have air conditioning just fans. Today, its suppose to be around 100 degrees. So as you can imagine I was not exactly anxious to get to work. The heat wave is suppose to last until Wednesday or Thursday. I took a cab to the light rail.

It was a cab I never heard of before called, Liberty Cabs. The driver seemed very shaky like maybe he was on drugs or something. He asked if I wanted to pay upfront. I asked him how much a ride to Hunt Valley would be. He said twentysomething. I decided not to take him up on the pre pay option because quiet frankly he scared me. I was afraid that if I handed him cash up front he would rob me and take the money to buy drugs. Or worse rob me, kill me, and dump my body off somewhere between Baltimore and New York.

The driver was either white or Latino it was difficult to say. One thing for sure he was definetly not from Baltimore. He sounded like he was from New York. I can’t say which borrough in New York but definetly he was from New York or maybe New Jersey. Anyway, what’s a New Yorker doing driving a cab in Baltimore? Isn’t cab driving a profession for foreigners?

Looks like I will be doing mall walking today. I know that it is a guaranteed lock that I will be going to the movies to see Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix sometime this week

. Right now there is not any movies that I am chomping at the bit to see. I’ve already seen Die Hard, 1408, Pirates of the Carribean, Knocked Up, and Oceans 13.

I am boycotting Fantastic Four because of Ioan Gruffudd (Horatio Hornblower/Mr. Fantastic) dismantling a website his fans put up 9 years ago. He took down the site because his fiancee, Alice Evans, didn’t like his fans criticizing her fashion sense. Ioans actions in my opinion is tantamount to firing his fans. Because of this stupid action on Ioan’s part I can no longer support his work.

Today, I have on a short sleeve light blue v-neck blouse, black slacks, and beige and brown leather sandals.
