It's a perfect day for a virtual Fluther picnic. Who and what are you bringing?

Asked by janbb (52210points) July 12th, 2009

I’ was just thinking what a great day it is outside today and how I’d like to be going on a picnic with my husband, sons, daighter-in-law and new grandson Jake (who are 3,000 miles away.) I’ll be bringing portabello mushroom and mozzarella sandwiches and homemade brownies. Care to join me?

I will bring a platter of deviled eggs: my special Buffalo hot eggs, curried deviled eggs, and shrimp deviled eggs.

I’ll bringing the potato salad. It’s pretty damn good if I do say so myself. And I’ll bring some wine and some sparkling apple juice. And a big blanket.

sakura's avatar

I’ve packed a bat and ball too for a game of rounders (a bit like baseball) laterxx

aprilsimnel's avatar

Iced tea (+ the ingredients to make it as is done in Long Island :) )!

jamielynn2328's avatar

I’ll bring the cold beer and burgers for the grill

DeanV's avatar

It’s foggy here. I’ll try not to bring that…

elijah's avatar

I’m bringing a giant watermelon filled with vodka, of course.

sakura's avatar

@elijah that would be one of my recipies from another thread then ;)

willbrawn's avatar

I’ll bring a blanket to sit on and brain sandwhichs : )

marinelife's avatar

@aprilsimnel No meal, especially a picnic, is complete without iced tea.

@elijah Hmm, that might be the only way I would ever eat watermelon. I had not tried it like that.

Giant bubble makers and jello shots!

I am heading out for a real outing in honor of JP- but will drop off some marshmallows and smore stuff in case your party goes late. (Smores go great with PBR)

ubersiren's avatar

Funny, my parents are actually going to a picnic.

I’m going paint balling (it’s simulated murder :D )

TitsMcGhee's avatar

I’ll bring the weed :D

Bluefreedom's avatar

I’m bringing a Frisbee, a boom box, T-bone steaks for the grill, a chainsaw, several 12 packs of soft drinks, potato salad, and a unicycle.

Facade's avatar

@Bluefreedom What’s the chainsaw for?

janbb's avatar

Hey, what a great picnic we’re having!

nebule's avatar

champagne and whirligigs

Bluefreedom's avatar

@Facade. Wait until you see how big the T-bone steaks are! Sometimes, a regular knife just won’t do. I’m going to be disguised as Leatherface too just to make the whole scene complete.

boffin's avatar

Not wanting to look a gift horse in the mouth… I’m a bit concerned with @sakura offer of chilled wine (in a) box…

Ha… Just kidding
Heck, I’ll drink anything

ubersiren's avatar

@Bluefreedom : For some reason, I think a unicycle belongs at a picnic. Perhaps with a guy wearing a barber shop quartet outfit, juggling pins.

Bluefreedom's avatar

@ubersiren. I completely agree. I’d better stop at a novelty store and get some supplies.

elijah's avatar

@aprilsimnel lolz there isn’t any iced tea in a long island ice tea!

cyn's avatar

I’ll bring more weed just in case @TitsMcGhee smokes it on the way
:)
it’ll be covered in brownies
MJBrownies

SuperMouse's avatar

I’ll bring a couple of extra big bags of M&M’s for when the munchies kick in.

kapuerajam's avatar

I shall bring the invisible pie and throw it at you all!

@kapuerajam it must be apple-pie!

filmfann's avatar

nebule's avatar

sandystrachan's avatar

janbb's avatar

@filmfann You’re never too late at a virtual picnic!

sakura's avatar

CMaz's avatar

Me and Elisabeth Shue will be coming. We will bring all sorts of exotic meats.
Dear, buffalo, kangaroo, squab, and grouper.

A keg of budwiser.

aprilsimnel's avatar

I will bring:

1, 2, 3

ladybugs to our picnic, along with potato sacks and a jump rope.

sandystrachan's avatar

I will bring the acoustic guitar, acoustic bass , some Jew’s harps , a boran spelled Bodhran , a few penny whistles and tambourines . We can play some music….

tiffyandthewall's avatar

i’ve got boxes and boxes of diet peach snapple, if anyone’s interested. also, i will bring a harmonica, for anyone who wishes to play it.

Tink's avatar

@sandystrachan I’ll bring the drums!!

sandystrachan's avatar

@Tink1113 The boran has an amazing sound , a normal drum kit would spoil it tho if no1 wants to play the boran at times, your drums would come in handy :)

jamielynn2328's avatar

Ooops, I brought the beer and burgers and forgot my kids at home!

Tink's avatar

@sandystrachan Ok I’ll take them anyways :)

ubersiren's avatar

@aprilsimnel : My 2 year old son loves that song! So cute… I love Sesame Street.

kapuerajam's avatar

Virtual ants to ruin your fun!(just kidding)

wundayatta's avatar

I’ll bring the nuclear reactor!

filmfann's avatar

Um, then I’ll bring the 50ft. ant spray!

Sariperana's avatar

Well im not coming – someone needs to stay behind and create a diversion for the cops!
I can see you all there drunk and stoned and playing with the chainsaw!! Sure sounds messy… eeek!

TitsMcGhee's avatar

@Sariperana: It’s not a party if you’re not drunk, stoned, and playing with a chainsaw. Otherwise, you’re just fucking around.

Clair's avatar

This is by far the cutest thread ever.
I’ll bring the raw milk to go with said strawberries. And perhaps some literature for the philosophical spell after the concerto.

Sariperana's avatar

@TitsMcGhee – Screw the picnic – I wanna party with you!

filmfann's avatar

@Clair raw milk and strawberries? How Bergman of you!

janbb's avatar

@filmfann I was thinking of Bergman’s Wild Strawberries from your remark, not The Seventh Seal. Have you seen it?

filmfann's avatar

Of course. I love Bergman! The Seventh Seal is my fav, but I could spend a whole weekend just running different films of his. Wild Strawberries, Persona, The Virgin Spring…hmm… it is Friday…

janbb's avatar

@filmfann I’ll bring the popcorn and we’ll get really depressed all weekend.

tandra88's avatar

I’ve got chicken.

nebule's avatar

I’ll bring the extra hour that we folks in England are getting tonight… (is everyone getting it??? I don’t know??..it’s a stupid stupid thing…)

Dog's avatar

We are getting it! Woooo Hoooo! We can sleep in after a night of drunken debauchery!

TitsMcGhee's avatar

Today actually was the perfect picnic day in NYC… If only!
