Na, when I'm shooting none of this nonsense comes to mind I usually have an 
old song in my head, I see and shoot without fuss.  In fact I'm cued into 
the quality of light more then anything.  I'm barely out of the peeling 
paint phase.  My brain kicks in overtime when I'm trying to edit for some 
particular event.  I'd rather have someone else edit and write.

BTW, when I want to straighten my head out I just try to put myself in 
Ted's head and then all becomes clear.  Oscar the grouch was always my 
favorite muppet. :-)
