Cranky Large Medium reading, 2 May

Go away.

Why won't you go? Did somebody camouflage the exit gate? No, that's it, right over there, looking like a big opening in the surrounding wall. So, if you know how to leave, why aren't you putting that knowledge to good use? Hmm. So you want something. What on earth can that be? Oh, right, the reading. Well, that's easy enough to get for you, especially if it will make you leave so much faster... here you are:
You make big plans for your progeny, and, if you ever figure out how to grow up, you might make a halfway decent parent. You have patience, but mostly because you keep to yourself, remaining uncommunicative and distant. You have no enemies, but then, because you're so isolationist in your habits, you also have no true friends.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But, hey, even though you're alone, you're still ahead of these people, who, on this date in history, were sent to six-foot-deep solitary confinement: Athanasius, Emperor Shōmu, Boris I, Joseph McCarthy, Leonardo da Vinci, Stjepan Gradić, Ernest Starling, Giulio Natta, John Carew Eccles, Cardinal Rodolfo Pio da Carpi, George Wither, Louis Rukeyser, Mary Moser, Lodovico Grossi da Viadana, Giacomo Meyerbeer, Hideto "Hide" Matsumoto, George Pál, Jack Barry, John Nathan-Turner, Brad McGann, David Rappaport, Michael Hordern, Kevin Lloyd, Gene Raymond, Oliver Reed, Gina Mastrogiacomo, Beverlee McKinsey, Joe Corbett, Norm Van Brocklin, Martin Bormann, Ludwig Stumpfegger, Nancy Astor, J. Edgar Hoover,
and Larry Clinton.

We've got college humor...heh. snarl. grr.
Happy birthday, anyway.
