Cranky Large Medium reading, 4 November

Go away.

Aren't you out of here, yet? Why not? Don't you have some teeth to floss or something? If I give you a little batch of words, will you pack up and go? Great! Here you are:
Anally-retentive and obsessive over the smallest things, you are trusted at home, and many seek your advice and respect (more the fools, they). You are fond of your equals (until they reach adolescence), and work hard to keep your home in order.
Are you happy with that? So sorry you're not... [guffaw!]. At least your lot is better today than that of these good people, all of whom, on this date in history, began bearing permanently shriveling grins: Khalil Sultan, John Benbow, William Shippen, Yitzhak Rabin, Jean-Charles de la Faille, Rasmus Bartholin, Elsie MacGill, Antoine Le Maistre, Shoghi Effendi, Johann Nikolaus Götz, H. Richard Hornberger, Ernestine Gilbreth Carey, Hippolyte Delaroche, Felix Mendelssohn, Gabriel Fauré, Charles "Buddy" (aka "King") Bolden, Dominique Dunne, Sheree North, Grover Cleveland Alexander, Denton True "Cy" Young, Richard Conner,
and Fred "Sonic" Smith.

Yesterday is... well, you figure it out. I'm gone.
Happy birthday, anyway.
