Cranky Large Medium reading, 23 October

Go away.

Are you still here? Who are you, Marvin K. Mooney, or something? Please, if I tell you what I know about you, will you be happy and leave? Great! Here you are:
You are a warm fuzzy ball of mush who reads a lot ant talks too much. You sing loudly in the shower or otherwise drive your family around the bend with your attempts at melody, because somebody once told you you should develop your musical talents. You should marry young enough that whoever still believes you have that talent can be deluded for a few more years, so they'll support you in your bad habit.
So. Now you know. Still not happy? Too bad. At least you're still around, while these other people, on this date in history, were gone to meet their maker: Marcus Junius Brutus, Emperor Daigo, Edward Smith-Stanley, Chulalongkorn, Michael Neander, John Boyd Dunlop, Charles Glover Barkla, Edward Adelbert Doisy, John Muth, Giovanni da Capistrano, Théophile Gautier, Zane Grey, Adolph Green, Ralph Rainger, Maybelle Carter, Robert Merrill, Oskar Werner, Robert Lansing, William Hootkins, Anne Oldfield, Bob Grim, Rodney Anoa'i Hana Brady, Christian Dior, Jessica Savitch,
and Al Jolson.

I'd walk a million miles to be left alone.
Happy birthday, anyway.
