The Notorious RBG's knack for napping is apparently well-known.

They expect me to sleep,” Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg told The Hill when asked about her fellow justices' reaction to her dozing off during President Barack Obama's State of the Union address in January -- something she's been caught doing in past years as well.

Ginsburg also addressed the nap last month at George Washington University and blamed her drowsiness on not being "100 percent sober," thanks to some wine Justice Anthony Kennedy served at the Supreme Court's pre-SOTU dinner.

"I got a call when I came home from one of my granddaughters and she said, ‘Bubbe, you were sleeping at the State of the Union!” Ginsburg said at the university.
