Cranky Large Medium reading, 15 April

Go away.

Your presence here is taxing my patience. Why aren't you gone? How do I deduct you from this scene? Ah, I see. I give you a reading, and you, pro forma, get along down the road. I suppose that is a fair offer. So, then, here you are:
You have a lot of nerve! You want to be popular, like to travel, and will use people to fulfill your ambitions. Your mind is a steel trap, sharp and analytical, but without the proper social graces... you probably should have been an engineer or mathematician and wear a pocket protector, so ordinary, sensible people would know enough to avoid you.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. And yet, you have it so good! After all, you have your life, and that beats what these people have, since, on this date in history -- what now has become America's Tax Day -- they met with the other of life's certainties: John Carver, Madame de Pompadour, Abraham Lincoln, Kepa Te Rangihiwinui, Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg, Byron "Whizzer" Whit, Johann van Waveren Hudde, Jacopo Riccati, Peder Horrebow, Mikhail Lomonosov, Arthur Aikin, Otis Barton, John Tuzo Wilson, Harvey Postlethwaite, Adolf of Altena, Manuel Chrysoloras, Robert Parsons, Patriarch Joseph, Father Damien, Jean-Paul Sartre, Matthew Arnold, Gaston Leroux, César Vallejo, Corrie ten Boom, Jean Genet, Leslie Charteris, Damon Knight, Filippo Brunelleschi, Domenico Zampieri, Edward Gorey, Brant Parker, Youri Egorov, John Fred Gourrier, Wallace Beery, Richard Conte, Raymond Bailey, Arthur Lowe, Clara Blandick, Greta Garbo, Edward "Carji" Greeves, James A. "Ripper" Collins, Dan Reeves, John Curry, Edward Smith, Jack Phillips, John Jacob Astor IV, Thomas Andrews, William T. Stead, Tommy Cooper, Pol Pot,
and Jeffrey Ross Hyman aka Joey Ramone.

I see skies of blue.
Happy birthday, anyway.
