I'm Going To #VIMFP, And I'm Taking

It's almost here! The Vegas Internet Mafia Family Picnic is almost here, and the excitement is palpable. Time to dig out those suitcases, find your collapsible travel toothbrush, and launder your Ipso Facto Jimbo shirt. Time to beg an acquaintance for a ride to the airport, or gas up the Family Truckster. It's travel time
Which reminds me of all those travel games we used to play as kids. There was Slug Bug, which was simply an excuse to pound your siblings at the sight of a VW Beetle. Twenty Questions, I Spy, and Spot the license plate. But my favorite was always, I'm Going to the Moon. That's the one where you take turns listing, in alphabetical order, the things you plan to take on your trip to the moon, with each person adding to the list an item beginning with the next letter in the alphabet. This would go on until someone flubbed the re-recitation of the list, or until your dad yelled, "QUIET! I'm trying to drive this gaddamned car!"
Modified for #VIMFP, the game might go thusly:
Player No. 1: I'm going to VIMFP, and I'm taking Anti-Inflammatories.
Player No. 2: I'm going to VIMFP, and I'm taking Anti-Inflammatories and a Bail Bond Card.
Player No. 3: I'm going to VIMFP, and I'm taking Anti-Inflammatories and a Bail Bond Card and a Cinna-Bib.
And so on. In the comments below, we invite you to share your own A-Z list of things you're taking to VIMFP. Here's mine:
Bail Bond Card
Ed Hardy T-shirt
Naughty Nurse Costume
Ocean's Eleven Soundtrack
Quarters (For Sigma Derby)
Vegas Mate (It's really great!)
X-Ray. (Maybe a xylophone. Game-time decision.)
See you all at the picnic!
