Cranky Large Medium reading, 25 May

Go away.

Will you please get out? It's not that I don't want you here, but I don't want you here. I like my privacy. Besides, what could possibly have drawn you to this place, where the only thing of any charm is my person? Oh, it's my person which draws you here? And why would that be? Ah, you think I can give you a reading, do you? And, if I give you one, will you leave? I think I can learn to love with that. Here you are:
You put sincerity and your best efforts into any undertaking, but usually your ideas are impractical and bizarre. You should keep your passions and emotions under strong control. None of us wants to see that, after all. You require deep affection, and could have been capable of strong feelings in return, if you were only a little less wrapped up in your own little dream world.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. After all, I'm not offering you any affection at all. Still, I have one more thing to offer, and that's a positive thought. At least you're alive. That beats the alternative, which is what these people have, since, on this day in history, they all had pennies placed upon their eyes: Emperor Murakami, Gemma Frisius, Adam Tanner, Anders Dahl, Sir Frank Watson Dyson, Pope Boniface IV, Bede, Pope Gregory VII, Pope Alexander IV, John Stafford, Daniel Ernst Jablonski, William Paley, Rosa Bonheur, Lyubov Popova, Nils von Dardel, Gustav Holst, Aleck Ford aka Sonny Boy Williamson II, Warren Harding "Sonny" Sharrock, Joe De Grasse, Charles Nelson Reilly, Pat Coombs , Black Jack Stewart, Payne Whitney, J. R. Simplot,
and Emanuel Feuermann.

You had me at "Cello."
Happy birthday, anyway.
