These are the people in my neighbourhood

Actual conversation towards the end of the day at work yesterday:

***

So, are you going to read Finnegan's Wake on the weekend?

Errr, should I?

Well, the anthem says you should....
"Aus-tralians all let us read Joyce"

Ha ha hardy har - so it doesn't HAVE to be Finnegan's Wake then?

I suppose Ulysses would be just as good

Sigh. I know I read Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man in college (mumbling now) ...not that I can really remember it.


***

I wouldn't change my fellow cubicle-dwellers for anything.

LOL - I'm very remiss, never having read ANY Joyce... maybe I'm not True Blue after all ;)

Joyce and I have not spent any quality time together since about 1992. Perhaps it's time to....nah.
