Why Law the Porn Star

You know how sometimes it's fun to google yourself and others you know? Well, after I'm married, when someone is bored and googles my new name, they will find miles of porn.

Yes, my new name also belongs to a porn star. That's just absolutely fantastic. I'm going to be in law school and that guy I'll sit next to in Con Law or whatever is going to think to himself, "Hmm, I'm bored. I'm going to google people in my row." He's going to know my name because, you know, we sit next to each other, and he's going to come across these thousands of links that have not-very-nice names. He's not going to be able to click on them because he doesn't want to get busted for looking at porn in class so instead he's going to IM his buddy who sits in the back of the class with, "Dude, check it out. That chick sitting next to me does porn! I'm serious!" Then he's going to show the IM to his new girlfriend that sits next to him, and she is going to laugh and point and send a mass IM to all of her friends because she is one of those popular girls who has lots of friends to tell gossip to, and it is going to spread like wildfire that I do porn.

Absolutely fantastic.

omg - that is too funny. This should lead to interesting law school stories.

Have you ever considered the hyphneated last name?

Hyph-en-ate! Hyph-en-ate!

Ooh, unless your hyphenated name creates an issue. Like Corky Sherwood-Forrest.

I think your fine. I think they WILL click on the porn link- maybe not in class, but soon after, and they'll see it's not you.

The result of a hyphenated name would be long, and not pretty. My current name is long, requires constant assurances that "Yes, that IS how we pronounce it.", spellings and re-spellings.

His name is short and easy. I'm looking forward to having a short and easy name, even though it does associate me with adult entertainment *sigh* The "solution" I've come up with is the use of the middle initial.

And stag is right - they will click on those nasty links eventually :)

LOL! Now that's a funny predicament. My guess is, you'll eventually hear about it while you're in law school! Be sure to post about it when you do! :)

You could always go along with it. "This was me before the witness protection program surgery."
