Cranky Large Medium reading, 21 May

Go away.

Why are you still here? Did you think you missed the last jackass to civilization? But you're mistaken --there's still a shank's mare for you. Oh, that's not the problem, then? What is keeping you here? You want a reading. How quaint. Well, if that's all that keeps you here, let me rid us of that obstacle. Here you are:
You have a great deal of confidence in your own abilities, no matter how unjusified. You are (and we are forever thankful) unique, original; love nature and sports and the outdoors (and, again, we are thankful, unless and until you learn to use soap). You love your home, like to make it beautiful and drive your family nuts with your improvement projects.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. At least, though, you're still kicking, so that puts you ahead of these people, all of whom, on this date in history, started renovations on the glass house in the sky: Louis V, Christian I, Archibald Primrose, Jane Addams, Rajiv Gandhi, Niccolo Zucchi, Lars Roberg, Carl Wilhelm Scheele, August Kundt, Williamina Fleming, Yevgraf Fyodorov, James Franck, Tommaso Campanella, John Eliot, Pierre Poiret, Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft, Thomas Warton, Christopher Smart, Kenneth Clark, Barbara Cartland, Sammy Davis, Sr., Katherine Dunham, ... Franz von Suppé, Vaughn Monroe, Paul Delph, John Drew, John Garfield, Alfred "Lash" La Rue, Sir John Gielgud, Howard Morris, Ann Little, Alejandro de Tomaso, Spencer Clark, Hernando de Soto, Elizabeth Poole, Geoffrey de Havilland, Patsy O'Hara, Raymond Mccreesh,
and Billy Walker.

If you could be in Charlie's shoes, you'd be somewhere other than here.
Happy birthday, anyway.
