Cranky Large Medium reading, 7 April

Go away.

Why are you still hanging around here? Did somebody tell you there was free food, here? I'm not sorry to break the news to you, but it's all gone, in a frenzy of action, and I'm not telling you whose maw it entered. Instead, I'll just ask you again to leave. But you stay. Why, again? Oh, right. You came for a reading. Let me pick my teeth and see what morsel I can find for you. Ah, here you are:
Don't let your overweening pride get in the way of what little happiness you might find. You make plans enthusiastically, but not very well, and seldom do they end in a great and glorious result. You love with unwise passion, and may be accused of stalking, if you are not cautious. Don't let that stop you -- just find a better subject for your passions... like, maybe, delivering free pizzas up mountainsides.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. Too proud for that, aren't you? So, how about a little perspective? At least you're not among the ranks of these people, all of whom, on this date in history, found the only and ultimate method for obtaining human perfection: Shimazu Tadatsune, Taksin, Abd-ul-Hamid I, Joseph Lyons, Frank Church, Lennart Torstenson, Thomas Bayes, Petrus Camper, Jacques Charles, Carl Theodor Ernst von Siebold, Jean-Baptiste de la Salle, William Davenant, William Lisle Bowles, Anton Diabelli, Cecile de Brunhoff, Doménikos Theotokópoulos aka el Greco, Johnny Hart, Kit Lambert, Tomoyuki Tanaka, Walter Huston, David Graf, John Agar, Victor Argo, Theda Bara, Brenda Benet, Beatrice Straight, Jim Clark, Harald Ertl, Ace Bailey, Bob Kennedy, Joan of Acre, Dick Turpin, Alexander Lloyd, P. T. Barnum, Henry Ford, Ronald Evans, Georgi Shonin,
and... I got nuthin' today. How about you? Leave me what you gots.

Happy birthday, anyway.
