Cranky Large Medium reading, 31 March

Go away.

Why haven't you left yet? Did something happen to your sense of direction? Why are you still hanging about? You must know how unpopular company is on a hermit's mountain, so what kind of gall does it take to come here and disturb my solitude? Oh, you heard I do readings, did you? And, if I give you one, will you leave? Groovy. Here you are:
You are an elitist, a snob, wrapped up in mental gymnastics, and yet you have potential for being a decent human being, if you try. You could have become a tolerable artist or musician, as you actually once displayed some talent and interest. Certainly you have that irksome artistic temperament. According to what I can see, women born on this day make excellent wives and mothers. My, but doesn't that offer you a broad view!
Are you happy, now? Of course not. Happiness is for the plebiscite, and you're not one of those. Then again, you're better off than these people, who once were elite but now are low as dirt: Regency Yorimichi Fujiwara, Eleanor of Aquitaine, John C. Calhoun, Mineichi Koga, Sir Isaac Newton, Pieter Burmann the Elder, Antoine Augustin Cournot, Emil Adolf von Behring, Hans Fischer, Clifford Shull, H.S.M. Coxeter, Paul Watzlawick, John Donne, Charlotte Brontë, Enid Bagnold, John Constable, Paul Strand, Johann Christoph Bach, Henryk Wieniawski, Franz Wilhelm Abt, Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, Jeffrey Lee Pierce, John Lenwood "Jackie" McLean, Jules Dassin, Jerry Paris, Brandon Lee, Meena Kumari, Anne Gwynne, Wyndham Halswelle, Knute Rockne, Grover Lowdermilk, Jesse Owens, Tim Flock, Bill Keightley, John Pierpont Morgan, Georges V. Matchabelli, Anne Frank, Bella Abzug, Barry Took, Frank Perdue, Terri Schiavo, The Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Rail, USS Missouri (BB-63) (okay, these two aren't people, but they had an impact, so I had to mention them)
and O'Kelly Isley, Jr.

Don't forget to say you will.
Happy birthday, anyway.
