Cranky Large Medium reading, 14 May

Go away.

Will you please go, now? What is it that drives you to stay and may therefore drive me to drink? Did somebody run some false advertising in the personals? Oh, no, it's worse than that -- you came here because you heard I do readings. If I give you one, will you be happy and leave? Spiff-o-rama. Here you are:
You could have attained any goal you set your mind on... if only you hadn't lost it, first. You are headstrong, domineering, something of a bully when it comes to getting what you want. You can absorb much information and retain most of it, much good it will do you. You are a loyal friend (if anybody ever braves the bristles to befriend you) and a bitter enemy.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But don't be bitter. At least you are ahead of the game, as compared to these people, all of whom on this date in history, offered sweet surrender to the inevitable: Ookubo Toshimichi, Husband E. Kimmel, Robert Menzies, Obuchi Keizo, Thomas Simpson, Gideon Brecher, Ernst Kummer, Pope John XII, Friedrich Spanheim, Lysander Spooner, August Strindberg, H. Rider Haggard, Stanley Kunitz, Fanny Mendelssohn, Keith Relf, Frank Sinatra, David Belasco, Hugh Griffith, Hugh Beaumont, Robert Stack, Billie Burke, Rita Hayworth, Dame Wendy Hiller, Anna Lee, Lou Criger, Lyle Alzado, Dave DeBusschere, James Gordon Bennett, Jr., Henry John Heinz, Emma Goldman, Henri La Fontaine, Jiang Qing, William Randolph Hearst Jr., Harry Blackstone Jr.,
and Sidney Bechet.

Go ahead, have a ball!
Happy birthday, anyway.
