Cranky Large Medium reading, 5 November

Go away.

Why are you still hanging about? Don't you have someplace better to be, like, maybe, a convenience store job? Oh, if you've come here just to pester me, I might as well give you something equally useful. Here's your reading :
You are a real oner, a bossy, superior sort with a wild imagination and a tendency to rely rather heavily on your "intuition." You can be bubble-headed and foolishly hopeful; you tend to be excessively demonstrative in your affection. You obsess about music and literature, and have become a regular snob about it. If you can find somebody who doesn't mind being stalked, you should marry that one early in life.

So, there. Are you happy, now? Oh, I'm so sorry (not). Well, too bad. At least you have your life, which is more than I can say for these famed people, all of whom, on this date in history, began contributing to the necropolitan society: Bernardino Ramazzini, James Clerk Maxwell, Christiaan Eijkman, Edward Lawrie Tatum, Alexandre de Rhodes, Hans Egede, Karel Hynek Mácha, Lionel Trilling, Edward Hallett Carr, James Robert Baker, John Fowles, Kano Motonobu, Maurice Utrillo, Al Capp, George M. Cohan, Johnny Horton, Edwin LeMar "Buddy" Cole, Guy Lombardo, Ulysses B. "Bobby" Nunn, Vladimir Horowitz, Eddie Harris, Billy Guy, Bobby Hatfield, Virginia MacWatters, Mack Sennett, Ward Bond, Stafford Repp, Fred MacMurray, Sam Jones, Texas Guinan,
and Art Tatum.

Humoresque ain't funny... or is it?
Happy birthday, anyway.
