Happy Bloomsday

I didn't even realise until I was reading the Herald. I don't think I've forgotten a Bloomsday since 1988. Either my mind is going or I'm growing out of being such a booknerd.

Even more odd, two nights ago I was making notes for a Ulysses Cheat Sheet, along the lines of my old Cremaster Cycle Cheat Sheet - basically, what chapters you can afford to skip - I think it's a great shame that people treat Ulysses as an all-or-nothing proposition. And the 16th of June thing didn't even occur to me.
