Cranky Large Medium reading, 26 July

Go away.

What's keeping you? Don't you need to be somewhere else? Like, maybe, the passing circus' side show? So, what are you waiting for -- get along, now. Nothing for you here. Except... oh, heck. You came for a reading, didn't you? If I give you one, will you be happy and wend your way down the long and winding road away from here? Coolio. Let me help you pack. Here you are :
You are capable, but mostly just a straight bully. You fancy yourself a member of the Literati, and can carry on a good show of being such, with a glib tongue and talent for show. You prefer the company of the opposite sex. Maybe someday they'll return the favor... but not in this lifetime.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But, if you settle down and stop trying to browbeat me, you may realize that you're in pretty good shape. At least you're able to act all tough around me. That's miles ahead of what these people have, as, on this date in history, they went less tough and more straight stiff : Offa, Nicephorus I, Emperor Komyo, Horio Yoshiharu, Thomas Osborne, Archduke Maximilian Franz, Sam Houston, William Jennings Bryan, Matthew Ridgeway, Elena Cornaro Piscopia, Gottlob Frege, Henri Lebesgue, Maud Menten, Pope Paul II, Ibn-e-Safi, Sir Edward Poynter, Winsor McCay, Diane Arbus, Frank Loesser, Mary Wells, Betty Astell, Anthony Durante, Antonio Ascari, Frederick S. Duesenberg, Eva Perón, George Gallup, Ed Gein, Rex Barber,
and Brent Mydland.

Go. Hear.
Happy birthday, anyway.
