best: Cotton bag from Aberdeen I got last week with a cool Centre for the Novel logo on it. I take it to the gym and look like a trendsetter!
weirdest: Mini calendar of Moscow State University by night, unusable as it is all in Russian and I speak no Russian (the conference was not even in Russia, but one of the delegates brought them for the packs).
I'd also like to know what to do with all the name-badges I am amassing (I'm thinking of making shoe clips out of them because I am thrifty).
The last conference I went to they had managed to spell the word "university" wrong on my badge...
@ phdgirlie: I urgently need to hear the story behind the laxatives!
Hahahaha! Given the food at conferences (ooh pastry! Wow, pastry again...and a pastry garnish! Divine!) you probably needed the laxatives.
I've had some seriously weird stuff - two of my favourites were chocolates shaped as worming tablets, and a mug advertising an incontinence treatment. My free welly bag was a good one too.
