Cranky Large Medium reading, 12 November

Go away.

Are you still here? What did I do to deserve this? All I ask in life is to be left alone, and now everybody wants something from me. Well, then, here you go, here is your reading:
You forget nothing, especially the insignificant. You are casual, attract crowds, and make a lot of lucky guesses; an attraction at parties, the center of attention among friends. You need to travel a lot, and read about it, too. People around you will make you crazy with their humming in tune, like a Broadway musical.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. Nobody is ever happy with what he gets. It's the nature of all animals to want more and better. Of course, you could have it worse, like these folks, who, on this date in history, became inanimate: Pope Boniface III, King Canute the Great, King Duncan II of Scotland, Anne de Montmorency, Thomas Fairfax, Friedrich Hoffmann, Percival Lowell, Otto Blumenthal, Saint Nicholas Owen Colley Cibber, Elizabeth Gaskell, Ira Levin, Umberto Giordano, Rudolf Friml, Walter Piston, Carlos Surinach, William Holden, Jonathan Brandis, Eve Arden, Kay E. Kuter, Penny Singleton, Wilma Rudolph, Tony Miles, John Hawkins, Abe "Kid Twist" Reles, Harry R. Haldeman, Leah Rabin, Jacob E. Smart,
and Tony Thompson.

Bang! You're gone.
Happy birthday, anyway.
