Happy Bloomsday!

‘Tis the 104th anniversary of the day Leopold Bloom wanders around Dublin. (It is *also* one of my oldest friend’s favorite days…other than Valentine’s Day…so this one goes out to you, Big J.)

I took a class in college on *just* Ulysses…and even though Professor North said part of the experience of reading Ulysses is reading it again…I never actually did. (I’m sure BJ did though.)

It’s sort of hard to put a food spin on this, although I recall there was some good Irish grub in there somewhere. Sausages? Cheese? Port? All Wikipedia mentions is a “full Irish breakfast…” and that isn’t even about the book.

Port sounds right though. There was definitely port.
