Cranky Large Medium reading, 28 June

Go away.

Why won't you leave? Is the weather so bad at home you have to hide on my side of the mountain? Buck up, pal, and get back, or I'll be forced to fog your glasses. Now, go. And yet you stay. Why is that, again? Oh, you want a reading? If I give it to you, will you leave? You will? Peachy-keen! Here you are :
You are oblivious, effete, and volatile. In all but romance, you are worse than mercurial. You wouldn't make a bad friend, if you could find somebody willing to oblige you. But don't look at me.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But at least you have the benefit of verticality. These other people, on this date in history, all turned 90 degrees homeward: Theodora, Louis the Blind, Xiaozong of Song, Andronikos IV Palaiologos, James "Wee Jamey" Madison, Franz Ferdinand, Maria Mitchell, Pope Paul I, Edward Carpenter, Rod Serling, Jim Baen, Texas Jack Omohundro, Frank Sutton, Joan Sims, Mickey Cochrane, Cy Morgan, Abraham Ortelius, Franz Stangl,
and Red Nichols.

Oh, the coin dropped on that one!
Happy birthday, anyway.
