Didn't even know this is a thing. Happy Bloomsday!

I guess I'll bring the Ulysses themed music...

I'm a day late this year, but hope everyone had a great Bloomsday all the same!

And to follow up on my OP, I did finish Ulysses again. So, yay me! :cheers:

:lol: Well done.

She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
