Probably not.  However, sometimes when I have too much to do, I actually get more done...  Scientist's in general seem to love to rant about how busy they are.  Especially to each other.  Perhaps its just a form of one upping the other guy,  but lately I've been thinking that perhaps the reason it seems like we're always working is that we're always thinking.  Since that is basically what we do for a living (think that is), then maybe it just feels like we're always working.

Actually what I get paid to do is think, do experiments and write.  Perhaps more writing via the blogg-o'-sphere will inspire more writing for journals.

We'll see how the above hypothesis plays out!
