It's going to be hard to figure out how to bill this... but I'm up to the challenge. (I Get Paid For Doing This)
This is how lazy I'm getting:
I need to file a motion in a case today, and I know that I previously filed an almost-identical motion in a previous case about a year ago.
(Lawyers being lawyers, we never actually do new stuff; we just copy from other lawyers.)("Other lawyers" including "ourselves in the past.")
So I went looking through my computer directory to try to remember the name of the client where I did that other motion, in order to copy it for this motion, but I couldn't remember the name of the client.
I did, though, remember the name of the opposing lawyer. Which led me to briefly consider emailing her to see if she could remember the case where I moved to dismiss her claim and she opposed that, and if so, could she tell me what my client's name was?
As of this moment, I haven't done that, but I also haven't found the copy of the earlier motion, so I'm kind of at an impasse. An impasse I'll probably break by going to watch old episodes of Archer at Netflix.
