Let me preface this by saying that I know I have a problem.
I make my living writing code. Have done pretty much continually since 1986. I always have at least two personal programming projects on the go at home, and I have a long, and growing, list of projects I'd like to do. If I was unemployed, aside from diligently looking for a paying job, I'd be spending even more time working on my own projects.
I did say that I know I have a problem.
