Cranky Large Medium reading, 24 October

Go away.

What is this? Why haven't you gone? Why do the gods torment me so? Well, if I tell you some nonsense about yourself, will you consider wending your way down the exit path? Wonderful! Here you are:
You are stubborn, unyielding, or, more politely, obstinate. You have no problems making enemies in order to succeed. If you were only a little less-self-absorbed, you would be attractive to the opposite sex. As it is, your romantic life is not going to run as smoothly as some of your lines. Give it up and become a hermit. Just find a mountain far from mine.
So, are you happy now? Too bad. At least you're not like these people, all of whom, on this date in history, hiked across the Elysian Fields: William Prynne, Elias Boudinot, Daniel Webster, Tycho Brahe, Pierre Gassendi, Seki Kowa, Désiré Charnay, Sofya Yanovskaya, James Cardinal Hickey, Robert Sloman, Ian Middleton, John Webb, Ernst Barlach, Alessandro Scarlatti, Karl Ditters von Dittersdorf, Mykola Lysenko, Franz Lehár, Carl Ruggles, Raúl Juliá, Don Messick, Claire Windsor, Jackie Robinson, Richie Evans, Randy Dorton, Ricky Hendrick, Jane Seymour, George Cadbury, Arthur Flegenheimer aka Dutch Schultz, Louis Renault, Vidkun Quisling, Gene Roddenberry, Wolf Rüdiger Hess, Harry Hay, Rosie Nix Adams, Rosa Parks,
and David Oistrakh.

It's not just Clair that's de Lune...
Happy birthday, anyway.
