Of Anonymity

I've made mention in several of my posts that I'm hardly anonymous anymore. When asked if I'm "The Blogger", I never deny it [anymore]. I just don't officially state on the blog who I am for various and sundry reasons.

I'm willing to bet that the vast majority of the people who read this Blog know who I am, so I figured I would post a poll and see if I'm correct in that assessment.

You did lie to my face for several months but I always knew.

Yeah, I was pretty skittish in the beginning.

Sorry about that.

But it was pretty fun watching people openly speculate over who I was. I gotta admit that I enjoyed that.

The best was when people would tell me their reasoning for how they knew that I wasn't me.

Come on Chuck, we all know its you.

Don't know....what's more, not even sure of your gender! But, then again, you don't know me either, so it all works out. I just like reading what you have to say...and how you say it.

Why isn't there a "I Don't Care" option in the poll?

James D.,
Because that would have been setting myself up for the equivalent of receiving an anonymous insult note on a napkin claiming that my glasses couldn't look any more unflattering on my head.

Anyone know who is on the "hit" list that Lykos spoke of in the Chronicle today?

Um, but your glasses don't look good on your head. :)

sadly, there were only two witnesses to the anonymous insult napkin, and one of them happened to be AHCL. Why couldn't it have been someone who wouldn't remember?

Off topic....

I know we killed this topic a few months back, but I feel the need to address the "Elevator People" issue.

This morning at the CJC was a crowded, stinky, sweaty, and frusting elevator experience.

I was tired, a little hung over, and was waiting for my coffee to kick in when I finally got on an elevator...

at this point, I met the "comedian rider". This is the person who tells the original jokes like:

1. Man, now I know how sardines feel

2. boy, this must be how cattle feels.

and of course the over played:

3. Next floor, ladies shoes and clothing comment when the elvator stops.

I believe the county should require music in the elevators so everyday Joe's like myself do not have to hear these jokes.

I don't know who you are nor do I care. I enjoy reading your posts and getting a little insight into the DA's Office. I enjoyed reading some other "public employee" blogs till they were found out and the blogs were deleted. Keep up the good work and I hope you don't get deleted......

Seer said...

I'm a prosecutor in a far-away county. I have no idea who you are but enjoy your blog.

AHCL - You can count me among the clueless, but we'll cross paths one day.

Anon0715 - If the music works as well as the elevators, you may choose to withdraw your request. If you're really perturbed by others' "jokes," feel free to step up and be the first in your car to offer some pithy remark related to current events that likely will do no more to your companions' heads than part their hair. Hell, just the other day I was treated to a trio of third-string rejects from VH1's "Charm School," each of whom was gesturing wildly with her raptoresque fingernails as she opined about the negative aspects of gay and lesbian existence. I reached my floor just as the conversation reached the oft-debated "Adam and Eve v. Adam and Steve" issue. Damn, I love public discourse.

Where would our lives be without courthouse comedy?

I don't even know who I am anymore. But I certainly do enjoy your blog, regardless of who you are.

r. becca said...

i know who you are!

AHCL

Snookems does not take to dissent well. I certainly hope that your career is unaffected.

i thought it was a lot more mysterious and suspensful when i didn't know...a defense attorney told me and i was like "oh yeah, that makes perfect sense."

Jason said...

You left out "I have a sneaking suspicion."

If you're the person I think you are then let me say I enjoyed dealing with you.
