Do you Google yourself?

Back when I was a prolific article writer, a friend recommended that I Google myself regularly, primarily to find out if someone was using my work without permission. So, I Googled myself, not expecting anything to come up at all. I was pleasantly surprised to find that several writing professors referred to some of my articles in their own articles. I found obituaries of women who shared the same name as I. Fortunately, I didn't find any racy sites with my name or pictures. Do you Google yourself? If so, how often? What was the most unusual thing that came up under your name, whether or not it was actually you? Poets & Writers posted a lovely essay called "I Google Myself, Therefore I am." Here's the link to it: http://www.pw.org/content/i_google_myself_therefore_i_am
