I hope I'm not the only one who forgets about work when I leave for the day.
I cannot count the number of times when I have had ideas about problems I
have been trying to resolve when I'm driving to work or I'm in the shower in
Or does that mean that I do enjoy what I do, and that my subconscious is
sometimes mulling over work issues even when I am not at work.
When I am working as a contractor, should I be getting paid for those times
I am not "on the clock" but still thinking about work issues? <g>

P.S. For anyone who thought I was serious in that last question, it is *not*
something that I would do. It was 100% tongue-in-cheek.
