Cranky Large Medium reading, 13 July

Go away.

Why won't you get out? Is there some siren song calling you to this place, that you can't pull yourself away? Why aren't you leaving? Ah, you came for something particular, did you? And that something is... a reading, of course. And, if I give it to you, you will leave? Great! Great! Then here you are:
You make decisions quickly and act impulsively. You are energetic and aggressive ; your face is often stuck in a book and ambitious for people to perceive you as an intellectual -- too bad you can't seem to learn anything while in those books.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But, hey, at least you can't complain about your reading -- it says you have a life, which surely beats what these people have, as, on this date in history, they all answered the call from beyond: Jianwen, Edward Braddock, Conrad Weiser, Tokugawa Ieshige, John C. Frémont, James Bradley, Friedrich August Kekulé von Stradonitz, Gabriel Lippmann, Pope John III, Pope Leo VII, Hubert Walter, Robert Hamerling, Peter Parler, Alfred Stieglitz, Frida Kahlo, Arnold Schoenberg, Pandro S. Berman, Willy Fritsch, Red Buttons, Tom Simpson, Davey Allison, Michael Reardon, Robert Shirley, Titus Oates, Jean-Paul Marat, Henry Benedict Stuart, Johnny Ringo,
and Compay Segundo.

I cultivate thistles and nettles.
Happy birthday, anyway.
