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 slipped and fell walking down the steps. It appears there was an icestorm this morning. As a result of this I decided to come in after the ice had fully melted. My left side feels sore. I left out at 9pm. There was still patches of ice on the steps and sidewalks and I was afraid to venture further. I left out at 10pm and the ice was gone save for a couple of patches of slush. The 10pm bus was extremely crowded. I wonder if this was a result of people like me who decided to leave out later than usual on account of the ice storm.

I hope the soreness I feel on my left side does not multiply in intensity after I wake up tomorrow. I feel shell shocked after falling down this morning. Thus, I feel it best to be cautious I do not want to risk falling again and having my other side be sore or worse a broken leg or twisted ankle.

Yesterday, I left out early from work. It was prescheduled for election day. I did not visit my father. I told him I would not be over there yesterday because of the wintry mix the weathermen were calling for. Ironically enough, it only seemed to have rained only when I left out this morning. That was when I soon learned that the seemingly innocent rain was the hallmark of a dreaded ice storm! All I did yesterday was watch more of Firefly. I also watched the movie based on the show, Serenity. The last time I watched Serenity was in the movie theatre. I saw it without having prior seen episodes Firefly. I saw the movie primarily on the good reputation of Joss Whedon. The movie was as good as I remembered it. And after having now seen episodes of Firefly I can see how it fits int.

Im happy Obama swept my state as well as the other mid Atlantic states. I voted for him so I feel great. Obama makes me proud to be alive at this point in time, at this point in history.

Today, I have on new blue jeans, rubber and suede winter boots, a light magenta pink hoodie made of thermal underwear material with a white top underneath.
