What would you take to space?

While in the DC area I was able to stop for an hour at the National Air and Space MuseuSteven F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Dulles Airport. 

It was certainly impressive to see examples of aircraft and spacecraft ranging from the first decade of the twentieth century to the Space Shuttle.

What most captured my interest was a display case on the items that astronauts take into space with them.  This included samples from the evolution of space food:

a compact disk player (I would think that after all the years of preparing to be an astronaut, I'd want to spend every minute in space looking at the Earth through the window or doing space experiments, but I guess astronauts need to relax in space)

a personal hygiene kit (I'd definitely be leaving the razor at home)

and a makeup kit (I guess the female astronauts want to look good in the photos)

What would you want to take into space?
