A few bits o' swag.
[Apparently, this post violates the rules of the PLA Blog, so we gotta put it here instead.]
Here are a few things from the exhibit hall, dumped out of a smelly-inked bag this morning:
- A Fodor's button that says GO AWAY (Random House, booth 915). Just the thing to wear at the ref desk.
- A leather beverage coaster (Centurion Technologies, booth 113 -- coincidentally located next to JCR Leather at booth 117).
- Shellie, the plush toy oyster w/pearl (BWI, booth 2201). When we get home: "Hey, sweetie! I visited the New England Aquarium, and I got this for you!"***
- A retractable ID clip which could also be used as a garotte (SirsiDynix, booth 2213). But don't do that, okay?
*** We actually did go to the aquarium on Wednesday morning. Great place, and we were lucky enough to have been there when the amazing cuttlefish were being fed peel-and-eat shrimp, which did not get peeled before they were eaten. The jellyfish special exhibit is also fascinating.
