Cranky Large Medium reading, 24 July

Go away.

Why are you still here? Have you no mercy? Have you no shame? Have you no ride back to town? Please, go now. And yet you stand here like a statue with a pre-recorded message playing from cheap speakers. I came here for something. Well, bully for you. I suppose if I give you that something, you will be happy to take up those stone feet and walk away? So, what is it you want the medium asked having a very good idea the direction this is going. A reading. How original. Well, if I must, I suppose I must. And this will make you go? Great. Here you are:
Everything you do is done with intensity. You are emotional and quick-tempered. Jeez, learn a little self-control! Maybe it will prepare you for being a halfway decent parent - as long as there is some poor sap willing to join you in the reproductive process. Like that will ever happen!
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But at least you can look on the positive side -- whoa! stop dancing all over the place. Well, at least you can prance across the floor, which beats what these people have, as, on this date in history, they all ended their last fandango : Shirakawa, Konrad von Thüringen, Martin Van Buren, James Chadwick, Fritz Albert Lipmann, John Boste, Nathanial Lardner, Ryūnosuke Akutagawa, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Benedetto Marcello, Peter Sellers, Chaney Kley, Constance Bennett, Tony Lema, Sam Berger, William J. Brennan, Albert Ellis,
and no musicians of any real importance, so here's a little Warren Zevon to make the day go faster:

Now, may I have back my Splendid Isolation?
Happy birthday, anyway.
