oooh is it Bloomsday so soon?

On June 16, James Joyce aficionados the world over celebrate Bloomsday.
The day is named after advertising salesman Leopold Bloom, protagonist of
Joyce's novel Ulysses. The entirety of this book recounts an ordinary day,
June 16, 1904, as various characters go about their ways in Dublin, Ireland.
If those 700+ pages are too much, here's an illustrated and irreverent
summary of the book: click here
