Cranky Large Medium reading, 5 February

Go away.

What is it that possesses you to remain in my company? It can hardly be the scintillating conversation. So, is there something keeping you here? Oh, right, the reading. As if you couldn't survive without knowing about yourself. But then, since you're the customer, here you are:
You are a dreamer and inclined to be impractical. You can't seem to finish even the least little project. No wonder your mom keeps asking when you're going to move out of her basement. You keep choosing your friends based on what they can do for you, but, of course, there is nothing anybody can do for you. With money, you are more often generous than prudent, which makes your financial state always in question, but, then, come sit by me....
Are you happy, now? Of course not. Nobody is ever happy. Hey, pal, at least you have your life, such as it is. That's more than these people have, all of whom, on this date in history, jumped off this mortal coil: Johannes Blaskowitz, William Cullen, Oskar Klein, Wassily Leontief, Philipp Jakob Spener, Eusebius Amort, Inayat Khan, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Thomas Carlyle, Lou Andreas-Salome, Banjo Paterson, Marianne Moore, Giambattista Moroni, John Hench, Jacques Ibert, Tim Kelly, Joseph L. Mankiewicz, George Arliss, William Collier, Dean Jagger, Doug McClure, Franklin Cover, Thelma Ritter, Ross Barnes, Rudy York, Leon Leonwood Bean, Tip Tipping, Fred Ball,
and Rudy Pompilli.

Razzle dazzle everybody...
Happy birthday, anyway.
