Cranky Large Medium reading, 25 March

Go away.

Will you be going any time soon? Why not sooner, rather than later? After all, what can you possibly think you're going to accomplish by pestering me here? You think you can get something from me? It is to laugh. I have nothing here for you to take except... oh, right. You want that reading. Ah, well, I suppose I can let you have it, then. Here you are:
Through your naive and spendthrift nature, you will make many friends and have a long marriage, although how faithful and true they will be is still questionable. If you were careful and thrifty, you could follow the plans you made for your future with precision and success. That's a big "if", though. It's a pity you don't have much practice with restraint, other than in naughty settings.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. Nobody is ever happy. Life is full of disappointment, isn't it? But at least it is life. And at least it beats the alternative, which is all that's left for these people, all of whom, on this date in history, joined the actual human majority: Ikoma Chikamasa, King Faisal, Nehemiah Grew, Caspar Wessel, James Braid, Pope-elect Stephen, Olaus Martini, Marqués de Santillana, Conrad Lycosthenes, Giambattista Marini, Novalis, Frédéric Mistral, Max Eastman, James Wright, Nicholas Hawksmoor, Turlough O'Carolan, Claude Debussy, Billy Cotton, Robert Joffrey, Richard Fleischer, Nancy Walker, Helen Martin, Eddie Collins, Bob Waterfield, Krešimir Ćosić, Cal Ripken, Sr., Ben Carnevale, Elizabeth Storrs Mead, Ida Wells,
and Buck Owens.

Big in Vegas, bigger in the afterlife.
Happy birthday, anyway.
