Amicus Curiae

We're just like Scalia and Ginsberg, only we're 2Ls and not on the Supreme Court. Oh, and this Antonin doesn't sing.

My Reputation Precedes Me

This post is for Alfred, who once told me that when he first heard my name, he thought something similar. And because he laughed when I told him this story over the phone tonight.

So today was my first day of work. And since we were in trial most of the day, the only other thing we really had time for was a short tour of the judge's chambers and introducing ourselves to the Court Security Officers downstairs.

This is the conversation that took place:

Me: Hi, I'm [real name].

CSO 1: Nice to meet you, [real name].

Me: Nice to meet you as well.

CSO 2: Wait a second... [real name]? (Lowers voice so only I can hear him.) Not the porn star though, right?

Me: o_O

Yes, you heard me correctly. On my first day at work I was asked by a Court Security Officer whether I was a porn star.

The only thing that might have been worse would be if he'd heard my name and immediately looked at me more closely to see if he recognized me, as that would mean that he's seen enough of the other [real name]'s work to know that I wasn't her.

Those of you who know my real name can Google me to see who I'm talking about. Though you'll also see that it's pretty hard to confuse the two of us. We don't look much alike.

well, at least he left it an open question. If my name was somehow similar to a porn star's, the guard's comment would have been accompanied by much laughter.

you'll need to work more on that tan before any real confusion could take place.

ha ha ha....

That's too funny!

And what a question for the guard to ask you....what if you had really been "that porn star" - what would he have said then?

"OH, I'm a HUGE fan. Could you sign this please?"

Wow Ruth how did I get here? I was trying to find some info on stuff work and leisure related stuff, so goodness knows why the last link I clicked on brought me here. But although there is nothing about stuff work, I'd like to say what a good job you've done with your blog.

Hello Ruth. I was just browsing the net looking for stuff on stuffwork and came across your site. Although I enjoyed your site, it is not really what I'm looking for, but if ever you need some great t-shirts and leisure related stuff, you may want to visit our site.
