Cranky Large Medium reading, 21 June

Go away.

Why aren't you leaving? Did you lose your way? The gate is marked clearly, E-X-I-T. It's over yonder. And still you do not use it. Why is that? You came here for something particular. And that is...? Ah, yes, the reading. As if there were anything else. Well, if it will persuade you to leave more quickly, I make haste to share with you what I see:
You are mechanically inclined and it shows in your activities. You should probably find a good, strong grease-cutting soap for those hands, and a much stronger deodorant. A pleasant and congenial disposition, kindly, slow... much like a big puppy; you like to have witty people around you, in hopes that it will rub off.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But you could allow your machine-like thought processes to shift gears and work their way around to this positive perspective -- you're still kicking. That beats what these people have, as, on this date in history, they all ground to a complete halt: Liu Bei, Enrico Dandolo, Edward III, Leonardo Loredan, Oda Nobunaga, Antonio López de Santa Anna, Leland Stanford, Smedley Butler, Sukarno, Jean Liebault, Anders Jonas Ångström, Charles Dillon Perrine, Gideon Sundback, Johannes Stark, Aloysius Gonzaga, Jaime Cardinal Sin, Niccolò Machiavelli, John Skelton, Thorne Smith, Leon Uris, Sebastiano del Piombo, Inigo Jones, Andrea Sacchi, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Earl William "Madman" Muntz, Carroll O'Connor, Margaret Herrick, Maureen Connolly, Al Campanis, Captain John Smith, Frances Adeline Seward, Wilfrid 'Wop' May, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner, Ettore Boiardi, Bob Evans,
and John Lee Hooker.

Walk the walk, baby... away from here.
Happy birthday, anyway.
