Just got back from MFPS-LICS-CSF saturday night. T'was the first LICS I've been to, and my first time in the deep south. I had fun overall. Definitely enjoyed the French Quarter with its narrower streets, delightful architecture, and other non-American features. And I ran into the Pride parade the day after arriving; I seem to have a knack for that ;) The humidity was killer though.

The slides from my NLCS talk are available here. I've been having some issues with my bibtex2html script, so they're not linked to on the publications page yet; but they will be once I get that issue fixed.

In less happy news, I got some bloodwork back today. Cholesterol is far far too high, and I'm getting into the pre-diabetic range for bloodsugar levels. So, I'm starting a major diet change in hopes of getting those under control. Apparently lack of protein is a big part of the problem (for me), which is ironic since most americans get far too much. Damn midwestern genes. Went grocery shopping today; it's profoundly difficult to get a 1::1 carbs-to-protein ratio as a vegetarian.

Glad to hear about New Orleans. Sorry to hear about your bloodwork. I assume you've run down the usual list of vegetarian protein sources?

Good luck working out the diet - I'd be interested to hear more about foods/meals you find that work. (1/3 protein, 1/3 veg, 1/3 starch seems to work best for my meals, though I realise that ignores questions of the carbohydrate content.)
