To be sure, Joyce's writing is interesting, but it's going to take me a while to get through the whole thing. Like, maybe the next six months? -_-; I know, serious FAIL! The back of my Penguin edition of the book has a quote from Anthony Burgess calling it 'the greatest novel of the [20th] century', and I'm struggling through it. But I am extremely pleased for rickysbaby, who was inspired to read by my Stephen-Colbert-as-Leopold-Bloom picspam. Yay!
Speaking of which: Stephen Colbert was slated to perform on Bloomsday on Broadway this year and didn't. Boo. Though I missed watching the performance anyway, since our computers at work don't have speakers and watching it without sound would've been very pointless.
