  1. 1. We have three big events colliding today in a kaleidoscope of festivity. Which one are you going to be celebrating?

    • Father's Day (get your rip-off, over-commercialised merchandise here)
      6
    • Trinity Sunday (yes the Feast Day named after a doctrine!)
      0
    • Blooms Day (get the Guinness out and the diddly-diddly band playing)
      1
    • Away with your pestilential polls and freaky festivals, it's an X-Box and Pepsi combo for me!
      13

I have decided to spend today contemplating my existence and whether there is any point to it or anything.

So I am going to make some sarnies shortly, go for a bike ride and sit on some sea cliffs having a picnic. 

If it rains I may stay in bed all day.

Going to last day of Download to see Slayer play. Can't decide whether to drive or not, so if it is too muddy and miserable I can just jump in the car and go home. It has rained solidly for a week around these parts and this is the last day of a festival.

Are they some sort of traditional folk band?

And if this isn't nice, what is?

Yes, American tradition. If you want to dip your toe in the water try listening to "Dead skin mask" or if you are into more traditional early stuff try "Raining Blood".

Don’t celebrate any of those things..  so it will be a normal day of entertaining toddlers.

At the moment I’m getting my hair combed with a dog brush and a toy tractor.  Oh, the sweet sweet pleasures of fatherhood..

Today is Bloom’s Day, the day celebrated in Joyce’s unreadable tome, Ulysses. I will mark the occasion by spending the day driving a safety boat down the sailing club. My children may notice my absence but it’s unlikely.

I didn't think it was all that unreadable. I found Hemingway far more tedious.

Today's joke:

What's the difference between Bloom's Day and Trinity Sunday?

Well, one of them celebrates the characters of a big book which everyone regards with respect but no-one has actually read. The other one is something to do with James Joyce.

Odd. Why not 'our wedding anniversary'?

Or does he not celebrate it?

I did edit it but not quick enough.

He does but I made the first cup of tea this morning so we could discuss what celebrate means.
