Cranky Large Medium reading, 10 May

Go away.

Why are you not gone? Has someone truncated your lower appendages? No, they look like they're where they're supposed to be. So, then, why don't you go? Ah, of course, the reading. you come to torment me because I can see what you are truly like, and you want to know precisely what it is I see. Well, I'll give you an answer if you promise to leave right after. You do? Swell. Here you are, then:
You are dogged, persistent, annoyingly indomitable, and without much in the way of fun. You spend much energy on diplomatic efforts, never once asking yourself if such work is truly necessary under the circumstances. You never show your true feelings, especially if they're anything like anybody else's.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But hang in there, things might get better. After all, you're still around for your life to change. That surely has to beat what these people have, as, on this date in history all began to remain permanently tactfully silent: Emperor Go-Kameyama, Emperor Nakamikado, King Louis XV, John Stevens, Comte de Rochambeau, Paul Revere, Paolo dal Pozzo Toscanelli, Leonhart Fuchs, William Watson, Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac, Jean de La Bruyère, Peter Weiss, Walker Percy, Andrei Ryabushkin, John Radecki, Sylvia Syms, Barton Booth, William Tedmarsh, Scotty Beckett, Joan Crawford, Susan Oliver, Deborah Walley, Tommy Burns, Gene "Big Daddy" Lipscomb, Colonel John Birch, Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson, John Wayne Gacy,
and Woody Shaw.

Bye bye.
Happy birthday, anway.
