Looking blue

Maybe he’s looking blue because when he googles his name he’s pushed off the front page by the more famous Robin Oakley. We’ve all done it haven’t we? And I’d just like to say, although her work is admirable, I am not the Julie Oakley who is campaigning on behalf of bullied school children. And please, please don’t confuse me with the other Julie Oakley who was convicted of cruelty to animals. If you have any interesting stories about google namesakes do let us know in the comments.

I don't have an interesting story but my namesake, who pips me to the no.1 spot is a porn star - and I'm miffed as it isn't even her real name!

The three blues look great together here!

Oh Felicity, how incredibly miffing! And probably not all that amusing that your fans have to find you in second place. I was her, I'm sure I could think of a more erm appropriate, evocative name. Felicity Grace sounds like someone who felicitously produces graceful, beautiful pencil drawings not the other business.

I was actually on the front page of the Times (the UK newpaper) see: www.knockout.net/robin/sail.cfm first. So I've done more, but obviously not as much as Felicity Grace!

never even occured to me to goggle my name, but now that you've brought up the idea...
