The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need.

So apparently this story about a women trying to sabotage a flight from London to Dulles armed only with some Vaseline, a screwdriver, and a note from Al-Quaida, is just plain false.

Of course it is. She's not MacGuyver, after all.

But it got me thinking, if I were headed to the US, what 3 items (1 cosmetic, 1 tool, 1 document)would I absolutely have to have with me?

How about:
1. Cosmetic: Maybelline mascara - you know, that pink and green tube. Nothing works better. And I look terrible without mascara.
2. Tool: My little sewing kit - complete with needle and thread, safety pins, and hem tape. That thing has saved my life a million times!
3. Document: Does Vanity Fair count?

Readers, let me hear your lists. And remember, Corky made it off that destroyer armed with only a dance belt and a tube of Chapstick.

3. An Allen Wrench

Since you restricted us to cosmetic, tool, and document, here is that list:

Cosmetic: Does toothpaste count? I don't use any cosmetics...
Tool: Leatherman, that way I get lots of tools in one kit.
Document: I am thinking you absolutely have to have a photo ID, passport or license.

Is this being way too practical???

1. anusol (like preperation H but with a bit more tang, and about a buck less).

2. Crack pipe (I have enough residue to last until we get off the tarmac).

3. Klingon Dictionary (because you gotta look cool, right?)
