I hate giving seminars when my benchwork isn't going like I want it to. It feels kind of deceitful for some reason. But, this seminar isn't about what I've done (well, partly it is) as much as what I PLAN to do.
On an unrelated note, I found out I'll be an invited speaker (i.e. giving a seminar) in next spring's NIEHS seminar series, so I'll have an 'invited' seminar line to add to my CV. So, that'll be something, I suppose..
