I was lucky enough to have heard her speak once at an ACM event.

I still have my nanosecond. Did she hand them out to the crowd there?

Yes, of course!

I remember that she said they were borrowed from a phone closet in the
Pentagon...

Of course, she is also famous for "It's easier to ask for forgiveness than
it is to get permission"
