Saturday Fun: IC Unveiled
Okaaaay...so my university's library decided to encourage faculty and staff to pose for these READ posters (and yes, we have asked ourselves whether it is too much to assume that college students will be reading on their own without an advertizing campaign, but anyway...). The library says they are doing it for fun, and it has been enjoyable to see where people have posed and with which book.
So Voila, here I am (real name scribbled out), next to St. Thomas More. The "concept" (a la Annie Leibowitz) was to pose next to the great saint of questioning government in the name of Christianity while reading about another will-be saint, Dorothy Day (Revolution of the Heart: Essays on the Catholic Worker), and have my head cocked in question. Instead, I just laughed and giggled at how silly I felt.
It's not a good picture of me, alas, but here's my attempt to make you smile for this Saturday.
