bloomsday

today is the day leo bloom walked mopingly around dublin while blazes boylan did body shots off of his (bloom’s) wife, and stephen dedalus pretended he was hamlet. there — the entire plot summary of james joyce’s ulysses. apparently, people dress up like bloom (above–ugh… williamsburg reenacter flashbacks) today and drink themselves into a stupor while trying to read 200-word sentences. Huzzah!
