Cranky Large Medium reading, 6 January

Go away.

Will you skedaddle, please? What is your problem, staying around where you're not exactly welcome? Ah, you want something from me -- a reading. Well, here you are:
You are impulsive; you often believe your actions are misunderstood and your motives misinterpreted, but that's only because you can't make yourself clear while running hither, thither and yon. You think and act quickly, lacking good judgment. Cultivate self-restraint or your passions will lead you into serious difficulties. Good intentions are never enough, should you ever develop any.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. Just knowing what I know, I can tell you'll never be happy. Nobody is ever happy with his lot in life. And yet you have so much more, so much better than all these people, who, on this date in history, filled another lot -- a small plot of land: Alessandro de' Medici, Theodore Roosevelt, Seth Ward, Louis Braille, Gregor Johann Mendel, Georg Cantor, Jakob Rosanes, Vladimir Vernadsky, Pavel Alekseyevich Čerenkov, Berengar of Tours, Saint Raymond of Peñafort, Chikamatsu Monzaemon, John Dennis, Fanny Burney, Thomas W. Knox, Archibald Joseph Cronin, Elias Holl, Don Martin, Rudolf Nureyev, Rodolphe Kreutzer, Emma Calvé, Lou Rawls, Victor Fleming, Ernest Laszlo, Philip Henslowe, Ian Charleson Catherine Scorsese, Herbert Chapman, Charley O'Leary, Charles Dumas, Giacomo Beltrami, Richard Henry Dana, Jr., Max Heindel, Edith Frank, Virginia Dell Cassidy, Hugh Thompson, Jr., Peter E. "Sneaky Pete" Kleinow
and John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie.

Let's hope the house we all wind up in is not quite hot.
Happy birthday, anyway.
