    Conventions and the crap they give out
    We've all done it, got back from a convention and laughed at some of the crap we have recieved from networks, merchants and billers.

    Name some stuff you actually used and was a pretty nice gift?

    I always love funny t shirts

    Anything stationary-related for me, except those cube notepads

    • Pens
    • Calculators
    • Post it notes
    • Rulers


    Oddest gift was a small first-aid kit, but I still have it somewhere.. very useful.

    Did you find yourself at another show during 2011 Affiliate Summit West??!

    We were staying at the Venetian, where the 'other' show was being held.

    Logo USB drives - they come in handy every day!

    Logo baseball caps for the beach and rainy days

    Bill... the mousepad I'm using says Girly Checks!

    I fill my trunk up each day - and stop at the local convenience store and let the employees have a field day

    But the best keepers are... Booth Babes!

    If you happen to be at a LinkShare event, swing by my booth. I generally have lots of goodies that are generally very practical and usable and geared toward the conference lifestyle.
