Cranky Large Medium reading, 15 November

Go away.

Why won't you leave? Didn't your parents teach you to politely retreat from people who don't want to be disturbed? And I'm already disturbed, after all. So. Go. Oh. You still want your reading. Well, then, here you are:
You can't let go once you get your teeth into something, and obsess over details. You are somewhat stuffy and don't respond well to compliments. You are isolationist by nature, not enjoying the company even of the opposite sex, and prefer the out-of-doors to polite society. Bears are more sociable than are you.
Are you satisfied, now? Of course not. You never are happy, are you? Well, at least you're better off than all these people, who entered permanent hibernation on this date in history: Constantine VIII, Giovanni Antonio del Balzo Orsini, John Witherspoon, Empress Dowager Cixi, Johannes Kepler, Daniel Rutherford, Alfred Werner, Charles Thomson Rees Wilson, Margaret Mead, Albertus Magnus, Ferenc Dávid, Tsangyang Gyatso, Henryk Sienkiewicz, Dawn Powell, Elizabeth George Speare, Aelbert Cuyp, Charles-Amédée-Philippe van Loo, Christoph Willibald Gluck, Fritz Reiner, Saul Chaplin, Lionel Barrymore, Tyrone Power, John Le Mesurier, Elsie Ferguson, Edie Sedgwick, Dorothy Loudon, Charlie Grimm, Alydar, Ray Lewis, Joe Nuxhall, Michael J. Adams, Alger Hiss, Stokely Carmichael, John Morgan, David K. Wyatt,
and Wesley "Speedy" West.

Flyin' high on fresh wings...
Happy birthday, anyway.
