QotD: In-Flight Entertainment

How do you pass the time during a flight?  What do you bring in your carry-on?

Being a child of divorce I spent every summer flying to see my dad.  When I was little my family tried to coordinate it so I didn't have to fly alone for one or both flights but that didn't always happen.  It was a long flight (5 1/2 hours) and so I always had quite the carry-on (a cute red Hello Kitty suitcase when I was 5).  Anyway, point is, I have a habit of overpacking my carry-on incase I get bored (multiple craft projects, reading material, food), even when it is a short flight.  I've worked on paring down and have come to this point: I will bring a book, a small craft project (lately knitting or crochet) and a sometimes magazine.  Along with some sort of snack.  Now I also bring my ipod and laptop (though the laptop is more about not wanting to check-it than entertainment).
