I've thought about it, but we leave for Gulf Wars on Sunday, which 
complicates things slightly. Maybe once we're back--once upon a time I 
tried lacto-ovo vegetarianism, and discovered that going without animal 
flesh protein does weird bad things to my mental stability. My sister has 
the same problems I do--we can't eat much red meat, but we can't go 
without meat entirely, either. Perhaps I shall experiment with a monastic 
diet rather than a full-on Lenten fast, and see if fish and seafood 
items are sufficiently animal to keep me stable.
