Cranky Large Medium reading, 19 July

Go away.

Why are you here? Don't you have a bridge somewhere to jump off? Go on, now, skedaddle. Why won't you go? What is it about my mountain that keeps you on top of it? Oh, right, you came here for something in particular, and that was... heh, a medium should be able to grass this one easily. Let me see, now... of course, you came for what's inside my head. Well, let me pour it out, so you'll be gone. Here you are:
You have a vivid imagination, not especially practical in most circumstances. Along with that, though, you have boundless energy and ruthless ambition. With all of that, you can't figure out why people don't like you very much. That's why it's good that you like to travel, to get away.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But then, with your imagination, you should be able to find the positive side to this -- that is, you're still alive to complain about it. That puts you far ahead of these people, all of whom, on this date in history, became figments themselves: Uda, Louise of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Soji Okita, Zenko Suzuki, Pierre Louis Dulong, Pope Symmachus, Cesare Cremonini, Abraham H. Cannon, Bill Bright, Reverend Francis Marzen, Petrarch, William Somervile, Margaret Fuller, Rose Hartwick Thorpe, Edward Bunker, Alan Lomax, Joe Flynn, John Harvey, Eddie Quillan, Jack Warden, Elmer Valo, Lady Mary Boleyn, Sarah Good, Susannah Martin, Yekaterina Budanova,
and Lefty Frizzell.

Now you're up here on the mountain and...where's your daughter's beau?
Happy birthday, anyway.
