Cranky Large Medium reading, 19 April

Go away.

Why haven't you gone, yet? Did the last spaceship leave without you? Forget your transfer pass? Well? Why are you still here? For the sheer fun of it? Jeepers! So, what is keeping you here? Ah, the reading. Of course. If that's all we require to have you leave, then so be it. Here you are:
You are mercurial, temperamental, artsy-fartsy, and are overly-fond of music and travel. It's good that you enjoy the outdoors, as you really need to bathe more frequently. You should (but don't) take great pride in your possessions and the few talents you have, because that would allow you to use them to your best advantage. As it is, you are, at best, sincere and friendly, if ineffectual.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But go ahead and throw your tantrums. At least you're better off than these people, all of whom, on this date in history, took off for the stars without a spaceship: Uesugi Kenshin, Roger Williams, Benjamin Rush, Benjamin Disraeli, Konrad Adenauer, Michael Stifel, Nicholas Saunderson, Johann Gottlieb Friedrich von Bohnenberger, Robert Jameson, Charles Darwin, Pierre Curie, Charles Sanders Peirce, Ephraim Shay, Alexander Alexandrovich Chuprov, Alphege, Pope Leo IX, Philipp Melanchthon, Thomas Bastard, Richard Price, Zola Levitt, Thomas Sackville, John Beaumont, George Gordon Byron, Daphne du Maurier, Octavio Paz, Paolo Veronese, Canaletto, Clement Meadmore, Sigismondo d'India, El Duce, Louis Applebaum, Niels-Henning ├śrsted Pedersen, Stanley Hawes, Jean-Pierre Cassel, Ruth Hussey, Spencer Gore, John Marzano, Benny Hill, David Koresh, Scott Crossfield,
and Layne Staley.

Would not.
Happy birthday, anyway.
