Protein bars? Check.

I will continue to post while I am away (which is why I bought the netbook!), but it will probably be sporadic as I'm not sure when and where I'll have internet access. I intend to tweet from AED, so stay tuned for that (I'll try and post summaries). I'll also blog on the smokin' hot science presented at the conference as I indulge my inner geek. I may also post selected pictures, etc.
My ED is staying stateside (I'm hoping he'll go drown himself in the Atlantic, but he's not an obliging fellow). I'm super excited to see Europe, and thanks for all your support!
