No idea, as I’m not a space scientist, but my guess is that there’s significantly less of a gravitational attraction between Pluto and its satellites, and so their orbits are far more irregular as a result

The Library is the only bar where I've been able to play 'ring of death', wherein you make a loop of straws and throw it at the bar like a parlor game. Whatever bottles the ring lands over, they mix up into a drink using those liquors. This was in 2005 or so, and they charged us 3.75 per drink, regardless of the outcome. We got Jack Daniels and Ouzo. It was not a good drink.

The Library forever remains the best bar. Just wonderful people there at Cricket's joint.

Traffic and snow are great in the District. I'm excited as hell for this weekend. The storms in 2010 were some of the most fun I've had since I've been here – lived right by the Capitol and just careened around to neighborhood bars for a solid week.

Also of note: if you commute into the city from the hinterlands of Northern Virginia you deserve the traffic nightmare imo.

Me: "That's Wendy."

Daughter: [looks at chicken nugget, then back to bag} "Thank you, Wendy." [bites nugget]
