Virtual conferences are definitely a different experience. One of the things I was missing was checking out all the swag that the vendors were offering.
Yesterday FedEx showed up twice at my house. I couldn’t remember ordering anything so I was super surprised when I opened the box and the bag and found some SLA Swag!
The item with SCIENCE written on it is a burlap tote. I don’t usually take the totes when offered but this one is nice. I think I will be able to use it in my car (if I ever go anywhere again!). The snacks and water bottle will always come in handy. There is a also a bag with a pair of sunglasses, a clip and a few other things.
The Taxonomy Division sent the makings for a fig martini for their upcoming happy hour. I’m not really a martini kind of girl, but I’ll make something out of the ingredients and join in the fun.
It is nice that a few things were sent along. I have to be bright eyed pretty early since the sessions start on East Coast time, so these treats make the early hour a little easier to take. Of course, I won’t be drinking a martini at the crack of dawn!
